Lyrics:
Acroyali / Standing In Motion [Version (a)]:

Liquid angels burn in the sun
Compradores cry for everyone
Compound vipers show what they lack
Burning survivors, you pray to die
It's raining tears of angels
The flowers bloom like bombs
The master is a stranger
The children should not be alone
The savage lights are over
The world returns to dawn
Babies walk on water
Shredded by the rock
You can blame it on the poor boys
Destroy your marblestone
The stink of death's survivor
Sleeping in a throne
Eagles nest beside them
Deliver gangster beats
The pull is neverending
On the frozen waterways
 
The Song:

"Acroyali / Standing In Motion" is a track from Yanni Live At The Acropolis. Beck and his fifth Record Club project covered the album in its entirety.

The original track by Yanni begins with a Japanese-sounding synthesizer intro, then turns into a dramatic orchestra thing, before becoming peppier and sounding like a TV sports theme song. It's an instrumental, no lyrics.

The Record Club don't go through quite as many sections, but Beck and Thurston Moore and the brilliant session musician band play a very spacey funky arrangement. Beck sings in his falsetto, Thurston freaks out on guitar: perfect.
