Lyrics
:

Love

Love is a revolution that opens up my eyes
Love is the armageddon of blindness
Love is the soul of the martyr who's coming back to life
Love makes the poor man equal to the godlike

Love is a revolution
Of the mind and the spirit
Love is a revolution
I was blind to it
Love is a revolution

Love is a true uprising... the undenying right
Love gives all men something to believe in
Love is the insurrection that makes the silent speak
Love takes a sword to anger and violence

Love is a revolution
Of the mind and the spirit
Love is a revolution
I was blind to it
Love is a revolution
Of the mind and the spirit
Love is a revolution
Are you ready for it.... ready for love
Ready for love

Of the mind and the spirit
Love is a revolution
I was blind to it
Love is a revolution
Of the mind and the spirit
Love is a revolution
Are you ready for it.... ready for love
Ready for love

I was blind to it
Love is a revolution�.

Mike Peters Notes
:”One of the last songs written for ‘Breathe.’ Built around a simple revolving chord sequence but with a fairly complex guitar dominated arrangement; this song was not easy to capture in the studio. Once again, the song worked brilliantly on stage but once placed under the microscope of the finely balanced studio speakers it became clear that we needed to strip the electric guitar into sections, as different sounds would be required for different parts. We played live to capture a stirring bass and drum performance from Owen and Emyr and then Slug layered the guitars over the top. At least four different guitars were used for the recording and they all come together in the latter half of the song. Having the freedom to experiment in the studio is essential and in making this, my first record, as an ‘independent’ artist, it was a relief not to have the corporate pressure of release deadlines. Instead, I had the time to stand back and evaluate artistic decisions properly and if I felt I’d made the wrong choice I could then go back and correct my mistake. This is the first time in my recording career that I have been able to do this. You don’t know how good it feels.”
