Body Electric Lyrics

I Sing The Body Electric!


With their newest release, I Sing The Body Electric!, The Lonely Forest has fully demonstrated their knack for writing memorable and hit pop tunes. Recently announced as “poised to become one of Seattle's coming breakout acts” by Seattle Weekly, the music group has come up with what's sure to be among the top NW releases this year. They've  shared the stage with Velvet Blue, Mates of State, Appleseed, and Starflyer 59. As Jack Encino remarked, “these guys arrived on the scene out of nowhere fast and blew my mind!”
 
I watched these men live. Although they were the second of three bands; they blew the headliners out of the water. For me, this has to be a good recording. They're much better live. When you stop to think of it, that's the way it should be.
 
One thing I really enjoy about this album is each song stands alone. That's not to say that the recording isn't cohesive, or that it's a shoddy collection of singles. It's simply refreshing to listen to a recording that reaches you from a lot of different angles. I Sing the Body Electric certainly leans towards pop. However, the drums and the overall production help to keep it from becoming completely pop, and songs such as Mt. Constitution and Tomato Soup offer distinctive sounds and production. These are quite unexpected and are a welcome change after a few of the more direct ones.
 
I think the recording could use more intense drums - something nearer to their live sound (at least live sounds from Showbox On the Market) - along with a slightly more aggressive acoustic guitar sound. But I find that is usually the case with sounds I hear live first before buying the album. The thing is these men are so great live. I made a point of buying the recording, rather than waiting to get it free of charge. Bands such as this should have our support.

I sing the body electric
I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion
When I become one with the sun

And I'll look back on Venus
I'll look back on Mars
And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time
And in time
We will all be stars

I sing the body electric
I glory in the glow of rebirth
Creating my own tomorrow
When I shall embody the earth

And I'll serenade Venus
I'll serenade Mars
And I'll burn with the fire of ten million stars
And in time
And in time
We will all be stars

We are the emperors now
And we are the czars
And in time
And in time
We will all be stars

I sing the body Electric
I celebrate the me yet to come
I toast to my own reunion (my own reunion)
When I become one with the stars

And I'll Look back on Venus
(I'll look back on vanity)
I'll look back on Mars
(Ill at this path)
I'll burn with the fire
(burn)
Of 10 million stars
(fire inside)
And in time (And in time)
And in time
And in time (and in time)
And in time
And in time (and in time)
And in time
WE WILL ALL BE STARS
