Lyrics: Protoculture & Christian Burns - Knife Games (Throwing Daggers)

Knife Games (Throwing Daggers)
Protoculture & Christian Burns

She was like a movie,
The movie was her name,
This situation,
I want it just the same,
Cos you get through to me,
Like no one ever could,
Out of this desperate,
We need to be high above...

I I I've got to say this,
I am around for you,
I can be like your Casanova,
You can be like one too,
Keeping us on the main line,
Tell me you want the same,
If we take our time and we learn together,
Well know just what to do...

Throwing daggers at my heart,
We were dancing in the dark,
Hold me close don’t let me go,
Stay with me until the sun,
Cos our lives have just begun,
Hold me close don’t let me go...

It was in slow motion,
The part I waited for
Turn round to see you
I slow a little more
Did I get through to you
With stories from the heart
Out of this desperate town
C’mon cos its time to start

Cos all I ever wanted were daggers through my heart,
Around for you I meant it,
It’s time to start,
Cos all I ever wanted were daggers through my heart...

Single is part of Protoculture's album "Music is More Than Mathematics" released May 2, 2014 on Armada Music.

Cape Town, South Africa -- for some, it's one of the most remote locations on earth, practically the stuff of legends. For Nate Raubenheimer, the tip of the southernmost African country is home. Armin van Buuren has said of the man, "Everything he touches turns to musical gold." Really, there can be no stronger endorsement, nor can there be a statement more accurate.

His is a classic tale -- inspired at the age of 8, it wasn't long before his life's journey led him to audio engineering school, and ultimately, to the largest festivals in the world. Protoculture's fans are filled with an almost feverish adoration, the kind of hard-earned reputation that only someone with genuine talent can enjoy. Success hasn't been all roses for the producer, however, as his hometown is one of the worst spots to travel from for an internationally touring DJ.

'Music Is More Than Mathematics' is an appropriate title for this exceptional album, and there's absolutely no formula for what Protoculture does. If "awesome" could be bottled into a jar, it would be this record. Finding better descriptors is as pointless as trying to compete with his musical talents.
Even though each record radiates the artist behind the controls, Protoculture was able to attract talented producers, songwriters, and vocalists to help realize this record. Christian Burns, Johnny Yono, Max Graham, Jennifer Rene, and Tricia McTeague are some of the multitalented collaborators that made 'Music Is More Than Mathematics' possible, and their respective contributions seem to come at the precise time they're needed in this musical journey.

Certain albums defy conventional logic, and certain sounds are so transcendental that it's hard to see "trance" as anything but the right term. This is a special release, and one that covers as much territory as Protoculture's frequent trips around the globe.
