Hands Of Fate - Lyrics

Hands Of Fate


So, don't be late

'Cause it's August 28th

And you've got a special date

With your destiny.


And when the hands on the clock

Point to 08:48

You will feel the hands of fate

Are upon you.


In the next life you'll be free

Like the birds of the air

And you will not have a care

For what to do or what to wear

Or the way you comb your hair.


Maybe next time around

You'll be lost and never found

By the never ending sound

That brings your down.


And each 28th of August

Could have been so much more.

And each 28th of August

Should have been so much more.


Ooo Ooo, Ahh Ahh

Hands of Fate

Over You

Ooo Ooo, Ahh Ahh

Hands of Fate

Follow You


Then at 08:49

You said "Maybe one more time"

For there was nothing left of Rhyme

Nor of Reason.


So another year may pass,

'tho time may never last,

But at least you'll hang in 

For Another Season


And each 28th of August

Now can be so much more.

And each 28th of August

It will be so much more.


Ooo Ooo, Ahh Ahh

Hands of Fate

Over You

Ooo Ooo, Ahh Ahh

Hands of Fate

Follow You


I thought I heard you say

"I must have something in my eye".

The jester was off playing

When we missed our time to fly.


[Laughter]

Scoffs

Hands Of Fate - Backstory

This is a song about someone who has a 'near death' experience of sorts.  Basically a car accident that is narrowly and perhaps 'miraculously' avoided. The song is primarily about the person's (actually a couple) perspectives immediately before and after the event.

Hands Of Fate - Technical Notes

Yes, the song was actually written on August 28th, 2018.  It was recorded in a very humble home studio over the ensuing few months and released in Jan. 2019.
