Selected Lyrics

The vast majority of Sylvian lyrics can be found at and slowfire. I'll generally only transcribe newly released songs that aren't up elsewhere (or ones that contain interesting background samples or vocals) and live versions of unreleased songs.

Selected Lyric

125 Spheres

Track #05 - Manafon // By: David Sylvian, et al

And when it appeared
It was a flaming book of matches
A hundred and twenty-five spheres
On a parquet floor
