  • Draw swords of truth in the back of the car
    Cue my attack, you know I will say
    Strike me down, I am an island, a mountain, a river
    And as I always sing
    You know I'll be thinking this music's symbolic
    This music is weightless and when I sing, so am I
    You'll be slashing at the air, describing nothing

    Who wrote all the numbers in your body?
    Who wrote all of the numbers in your body?
    the numbers in your body
    I am in the rain, I am in the rain
    I am in the- sixteen seconds!

    I'm writing on airwaves, I'm writing on the air
    I'm writing on your memory, I'm writing on the microphone
    The swords of truth, the back of the car
    Due my attack but you know I always sing
    Strike me down, strike me down
    Strike me down, strike me down
    Cos I am an island, a mountain, a river
    And as I see that, you know I am thinking
    This music's symbolic, this music is weightless

    Who wrote all the numbers in your body?
    Who wrote all of the numbers in your body?
    I am in the air, I am in the reign
    I am in the- sixteen seconds!

    Swords of truth in the back of the car
    Cue my attack but to you I will say
    Strike me down, strike me down
    Strike me down, strike me down, strike me down!
    I am an island, a mountain, a river... Writer/s: Dirk Troost, Kevin Van Den Brink
