Sun Rise Light Flies was written by Sergio Pizzorno and is the 5th track on Empire.

BackgroundEdit

Sun Rise Light Flies has been described as a psychedelic dance song and tries to emulate a festival feeling: "That mad ecstasy moment when you just get that warmth and everything in your bodies goes 'Ah! This is fucking great.'" In an NME interview Serge compared it to The Chemical Brothers, but in the 60's.[1] The title of the song is sometimes stylised as "Sun/Rise/Light/Flies".

LiveEdit

After being debuted on 20 May 2006 in Mexico City, Sun Rise Light Flies was performed regularly during the Empire Tour.

QuotesEdit

"Tom's voice has definitely developed as it's gone on. There's a new track called Sun Rise Light Flies, the fifth track on the album, where he has to sing so high, right at the top of his range, and it sounds absolutely amazing. I think touring has definitely matured his voice."
— Ian (Music OMH, 3 August 2006)

LyricsEdit

Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies

Sweet Sunday morning
Makes the nightmares come alive
I bet tomorrow makes it alright
I see a lover
Flash before me on her knees
She tip the velvet, makes it alright

Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies

Sweet Sunday morning
Shake the lizards from my back
I chase the devil just for one night
And I light the paper
For all the friends who passed away
To all existence, show me your light

Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
Sun Rise Light Flies
