Cat Empire, The - All Hell Lyrics




All hell's crashing down inside
The windows to the other side
Shimmering in rooms to quiet sighs of

'Oh well if it's happening there
It isn't here', and god appears to deal
A different hand to different tiers

But this play is not over yet
Hear the music of those marionettes
Beating drums down the quiet streets
Of ignorance and vain regrets

And all these fears swiftly come to pass
Presently she feels we're past
Cups of tea and optimistic prayers

Cos out there's our unholy mess
Gathering its long white dress
And marching down aisle to marry this

Matrimonial future bliss
Kiss the tide and hope it doesn't lift up your
Carpet woven from apathy and token frets
All Hell!

But this play is not over yet
Hear the music of those marionettes
Beating drums down the quiet streets
Of ignorance and vain regrets

Cat Empire, The All Hell Comments
  1. Filip

    This is seriously my favorite album of theirs. Everything afterward is just too commercial, and while their old stuff is good too, none of it is as refined and cohesive in sound as Cinema. Truly a masterpiece from one of my favorite bands.

  2. leovc

    The intro sounds like Tim Maia's, Gostava Tanto de Você (a great funk-soul artist from Brazil, in case someone doesn't know him)

  3. leonard

    All hell's crashing down inside
    The windows to the other side
    Shimmering in rooms to quiet sighs of

    'Oh well if it's happening there
    It isn't here', and god appears to deal
    A different hand to different tiers

    But this play is not over yet
    Hear the music of those marionettes
    Beating drums down the quiet streets
    Of ignorance and vain regrets

    And all these fears swiftly come to pass
    Presently she feels we're past
    Cups of tea and optimistic prayers

    Cos out there's our unholy mess
    Gathering its long white dress
    And marching down aisle to marry this

    Matrimonial future bliss
    Kiss the tide and hope it doesn't lift up your
    Carpet woven from apathy and token frets
    All Hell!

    But this play is not over yet
    Hear the music of those marionettes
    Beating drums down the quiet streets
    Of ignorance and vain regrets

    WoW, have lisnt the album through.... And wow what a album.... Bring us more of that TCE .

  11. David Kontrobarsky

    great album but i preferred the more pure songs if that's what you call it with the trumpet solo's and stuff like that

  12. Toronto Maple Leafer

    This song needs a music video done, cause this is a HELL of a beast of a song!

  13. Noah Cox

    The chord progression is e a b e b, In the main part, the chords are much too complicated to explain in text.

  14. MusicBreathesLife

    I agree with earlier comments.... this album continues the great Cat story... highly addictive songs as always. Love you guys and can't wait to see you live in Sept in Bris.... bring it on!!!!

  15. hobbermc

    saw them the other week! absolutely amazing! just a shame they didn't play this song

  16. Nora Pieterse

    i love the new sound. not all new though, you can still hear cat empire!! it's a great album, thanks for putting it on!! xx

  17. Gabble Ratchet

    @Wallrat Agreed, although I've acquired a soft spot for The Heart Is A Cannibal, the entire album is complete quality!

  18. Wallrat

    The sound of this album is simply amazing. A great move IMO... though this song is tied for first with the other 11 on the album.

    Not a bad one in the whole bunch.

  19. John2Watson

    i got nothing to add :D

  20. Gabble Ratchet

    @John2Watson Yep, different doesn't have to mean bad, as I've noticed quite a few "fans" saying. The Cat Empire soul is still there and it always will be, if they did an exact repeat of an album it'd be boring. As Harry transcribed himself in Down At The 303, "music should take risks and be experimental" =D

  21. John2Watson

    it`s a different sound now, but their songs are great again!

  22. Gabble Ratchet

    @noaparentreason1 Glad you like it! I'm also enjoying their new sound :)

  23. Katherine Spina
