about

i have been here a million times before. i have told my tale to you each and every time, to remind you of my love. sometimes you need no reminding, sometimes i must remind you constantly. other times you remember, but want to be reminded anyway. it made you nostalgic, you said.

in Byzantium, i said:

you loved my mind. i have tried to keep it intact for you. i have never wanted to withhold anything.

lyrics

i was an engineer named Philo
i doubled the cube
we lived in Byzantium
i was so in love with you

it was an age of violence
it was a time of the muse
i was an engineer named Philo
so in love with you

you called me mathematician
i called you my little prime
we lived in Byzantium
the world was yours and mine

i was an engineer named Philo
i doubled the cube
i lived in Byzantium
i new the truth

it was an age of violence
it was a time of wrath
i was an engineer named Philo
on the warpath

i was an engineer named Philo
i doubled the cube
we lived in Byzantium
i was so in love with you

i was an engineer named Philo
i doubled the cube
we lived in Byzantium
i was so in love with you
