Promo for the island did work :giggle: but I already knew about them long ago, but recently I got into the rest of their music then I saw I could get that for 23 dollars and have downloads for all three albums plus more so I took the opportunity hahaha

BLUE lyrics

 

tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o4_500.gif

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?


Dust to dust so we leave for good
When all has gone to blazes I start to run
Until I find places where nobody’s gone

No more weight on your conscience
With ease I go back to the start

Surge like a fountain, like tide

And swallow the bleed
Flows like a fountain inside

Gather force from the sea
Riding this giant wave untied
Let it wash me clean

Crawling through deafening cold
Turning head there’s no sight of home
Though my body’s aching
 we have to push on

For every stride a new line is drawn

Surge like a fountain, like tide

And swallow the bleed
Flows like a fountain inside

Gather force from the sea
Riding this giant wave untied
Let it wash me clean

From watching eyes 
I blindly rove

To guard my stories
 and find new gold

Riding this giant wave untied
Let it wash me clean

What lies beyond the fringe of the woods?

Dust to dust so we leave for good

Deep blue diver, with our hopes in your hands


Won’t you take me with you to another land?
Pure sapphire hiding in the sands of the darkest depths ever known to man
Jointly there is nothing we can’t do
What composure and sharp slight of hand
At night I lay awake and hear you call my name
In the strangest lands I will grasp my chance
Sing the unsung words I have searched to spell
And I shackle myself, I risk it all
Bringing us closer to the core returning treasures to the shore
And together we take back what is ours
Hunting for pearls on the ocean floor for us to cherish and adore
Days are hollow
Nights come to my defence
I shut my eyes and focus not to lose her sense
It’s her we follow
She holds the secret spell
I know the place she goes I wave her farewell
Jointly there is nothing we can't do


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o6_500.gif

Stretching out before my eyes


All riches a ruler requires
Regal shimmer, blinding shine
All hollowness when all this is mine

Through all the shallow depths, I had to wade
This could have become my darkest hour
Enough of days of living in the shade

My icy heart will turn to gold
Gazing underneath this tidy sky
Claim my land of frozen soil
Rest my eyes on this grand view, making it mine

Can you follow me never to be found
Tasting salty in the great blue we will shine

Improbable place unknown
Untouched and undestroyed
Here I let my armies grow
Our voices will loudly crow

Whoever needed identity to reign
Make them believe to cure their drought
I want the world rushing through my veins

My icy heart will turn to gold
Gazing underneath this tidy sky
Claim my land of frozen soil
Rest my eyes on this grand view, making it mine

Can you follow me never to be found
Tasting salty in the great blue we will shine

Can you follow me through the second round?
Can you taste the pale white salt against your tongue?

My icy heart will turn to gold
Gazing underneath this tidy sky
Claim my land of frozen soil
Rest my eyes on this grand view, making it mine

Can you follow me never to be found
Tasting salty in the great blue we will shine

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold


Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now

Tap my glass, raise my voice
To call upon your attention
As it fills to the verge when full
It breaks and floods all suspension

Draw a breath and let ourselves go
Through the dark veil we slowly float
Feel the salt slowly fill your throat

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold
Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now (x 2)

From the tide that's rising
Using all of my force
I form shapes of the sea
You're changing its course
We are creating new islands
Now will the flood come swallow down all our sorrow
Down and down, we drown we drown
We drown here

Let the shallows of above forget us
Getting closer to the bottom
The venture of a life in the cold never to be forgotten

Unless they want to let themselves go
Unless they choose to be swallowed
Then the above will be visible

Tap your glass, let us see you unfold
Shall I tap my glass and give it my all
We could tap our glasses, let ourselves go now (x 2)

From the tide that's rising
Using all of my force
I form shapes of the sea
You're changing its course
We are creating new islands
Now will the flood come swallow down all our sorrow
Down and down, we drown we drown
We drown here

(We are creating new islands!)
(The tide is rising!)
(We are creating new islands!)


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o8_500.gif

In the blackened waters of conceit


I saw my silhouette, pale and bleached
All thin outlines and no shape
Dash the surface for the self to show
Displays a vague shadow I should know
Unless you define me, there’s no faith

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark
Without you, you
I am who?
Build me up all nice and tall
Lift me up and make me soar
Out of the blue blue
I’ll be new

Here we spent every resource
Against the current, change the course
With no land in sight
Give me pace
Owning up to each letter spelled
Rewrite the story that I now tell
Come let’s run, from the chase

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark
Without you, you
I am who?

Build me up all nice and tall
Lift me up and make me soar
Out of the blue blue
I’ll be new

Across the bottomless blue
Seeking the truth I turn to you
Reflected back in all your shine
A making of your design

Continue the line I draw
Fill in the missing mark


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o9_500.gif

Our finds beneath the cloak of night


Has our minds in control
We guard them with our weary eyes and we watch them grow
When the time is right
And we’re ready to begin
At first tide, your patience wearing thin

We scatter in the night
Like scarlet red on winter white
Melting into thin

The kind of which I came to be
After being swallowed whole
By offering a piece of me
To any given fool

We scatter in the night
Like innocent sheets of white
Spreading by the wind

They turn to us
They ask us why
Who say they are to trust
What we define


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o10_500.gif

It’s a thin thin line and I've walked both sides of it


Seen the other side appear so tempting worth dying for it
And your limbs aching out of want
Absorbing your every thought
Worth risking it all for working its wonders now for you

Over the ocean outcast with nowhere to go (nowhere to go, nowhere to go)
A brighter forecast, new winds will blow (we let go, let it go)
The storm that's drawing near, will calm and the air is clear
Waste my youth chasing kites I know will blow out of my hands

Push our heads in the sand, there is nothing here to seek
No discovery of mine will be safe in these seas
You feel that bitter taste on your tongue
Swallow your every wrong
Let your sins fill your lungs
Ending all worries now for you

Over the ocean outcast with nowhere to go (nowhere to go, nowhere to go)
A brighter forecast, new winds will blow (we let go, let it go)
The storm that's drawing near, will calm and the air is cleared
Waste my youth chasing kites I know will blow out of my hands

Overlooking our past letting it go
A brighter forecast, new winds will blow
The storm that's drawing near, will calm and the air is cleared
Waste my youth chasing kites I know will blow


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o3_500.gif

With one hand above the rising line


Fighting to keep my innocence dry
Before I sail this raft aground
If we won’t live to hear the sound

No built ship can save mankind
They’ll be holding their breaths for the rest of their lives
Before you sail that raft aground
Join us in the search and take a dive

Flotsam and jetsam all this driftwood
Can’t you see the forest for the trees


 
tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o2_500.gif

The life has gone from this room


There is no future for me
There was dancing and the mood
Shifted from tender to a lifeless beat

Needless happy as in June
When this battle stained the white with bleeding
I will not be equal to
The fool who cherishes her own misdeed

Look at the stars in the winter sky
Everything will bleed tonight
What a beautiful day to die

The last I saw of myself
Was a shadow in the water stream
In the life that I left
To walk into the land of defeat

Now this is home, this is wealth
Awakening to the sound of the sea
Where I can watch from a distance
And rule my land of misery

Look at the stars in the winter sky
Everything will bleed tonight
What a beautiful day to die
Feel the air grow cold and dry
Everything will be just fine
What a beautiful day to die

The shadow from the former
Over my shoulder waiting to take me home

I heard its every call
I know what it wants
I’m willing to leave for home

 

tumblr_nh6mv7w8Y71th3ab2o1_500.gif

I am fire, I am damage in the making


I am an army set out to control your every ticking
I am a giant stepping on the tiny world you live in

And you shake and you shiver
As the roof is coming down
And the walls grow thinner

Shadowshow darkens the river
Turn hearts into stone
We run, we run
Terrified, what have we done?
Is this how it goes?
Silence grows
Loudly bigger
Its heartrending crow
You run, you run
Terrified, what have you done?
Is this how it goes? (let the shadows swallow all)
It's how it goes

Mass confusion, never been so excited
What your hearts felt for us was evidently unrequited
And by the sea we’re laying down our hopes
You will conquer all
your rise our fall
And by the sea I’m laying down my hopes
We will conquer all
Our rise your fall

And I shake and I shiver
As I cut through skin and bones
Can you solve the riddle?

Shadowshow darkens the river
Turn hearts into stone
We run, we run
Terrified, what have we done?
Is this how it goes?
Silence grows
Loudly bigger
Its heartrending crow (let the shadows swallow all)
You run, you run
Terrified, what have you done?
Is this how it goes? (let the dark upon us fall)
It's how it goes

Let the shadows swallow all
Let the dark upon us fall
I am fire, I am damage in the making
I am an army set out to control your every ticking

kin lyrics

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o9_1280.jpg

might looks so grand from a distance that you need to touch it gives a vision of the simple but it isn’t much

i won’t be fooled by it’s touch or emotional supply the scent of the fair and heavy allure will dry

the cold and the bare grasped so delicate by one’s eye is why we can’t ally and elope to wry

almost forgotten the way we used to live for play to be accepted i must blend into conventions way and sing in universal ways

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o8_1280.jpg

give up, let down

can’t believe what i found

keep quite, be silent, these words from your mouth build up from ground

wipe clean of your frowns

turn around before we run aground

one more wrong costs you all sticks like glue obstructs my view

speak up, adapt

watch closely, keep track

streamlined, live by the rules applied

thin line to walk, no time to stop

this life your glorify a waste of time

give up, let down

can’t believe what i found

keep quite, be silent, these words from your mouth build up from ground

wipe clean of your frowns

turn around before we run aground

one more fault costs you all

until i’m through

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o7_1280.jpg

you make a neat and tidy house a good worker does

a pinion of labour’s men

as capable as trust

from a lower point of view comes the underlying truth keeping yourself unaware comforting we know you care locking out your inner man recognising time is plans ready for some further use denial is a virtue

i make a good and steady friend a companion through life

but who am i when all i am

is your designated wife

sadly i have not defined where you’re taking me

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o6_1280.jpg

moving closer now

your hand just knocked me off my feet yeah like a puppet now

i cannot move to my own beat

but i can dance tonight

i’ll make up songs for us to sing you hold my heart with cotton string and to your rhythm i will shout

my love for play

take off your hat

and pull a rabbit out for me

i’m like a lackey now

i’ll lay on my back, get on my knees

so i will dance now

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o5_1280.jpg

we don’t ask for anything

your lives could have been unaffected

we don’t ask you to give all

it won’t make us more than what is reflected

can you see the scar in the perfect sky and the hills align with a crooked smile

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o3_1280.jpg

here are you my long lost love

it feels like yesterday us parting

i held you closest to my thrusting heart now the withdrawal seems to be starting

you’re not like anyone i know

with you i flourish into greatness extend my arms into immense delight making my future vast and weightless

quite an undertaking

all fair promises

i stopped hearing you crow

quite an understatement

and harm surfaces that is hidden in snow

i should have kept you safe shielded from our trojan war

where are you my partisan

the last i saw of you was sinking into a giant hole of nothingness as my desire started shrinking

if i chose to take you back

if you can swallow all that pride

if i stand up for my believing

if you can still be what i lack

can we make up for all the joy we lack where is the passion you were bringing can we start giving and receiving

what is the purpose of me giving

it’s the same

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o4_1280.jpg

mptied one at a single draft alone drained this run

the farthest one can come too close

life could be better if i let me in what is to hold on to

but i force myself towards departing leaving is what you do

i had to make dirty in

i had to be the rascal

i wanted us to live in

i couldn’t evoke the memories i have missed

left this one

abandoned my ideals for what

want to be just like you

moulded like i’m shaped in size with anyone

stand in line right next to everyone just like you

i had to make dirty in this soil

i had to be the rascal taking all

i wanted us to live in times of bliss

i couldn’t evoke the memories i have missed shut your eyes fast and all goes blank

and channel the vision feel the scent of someone who dares to lose it all

and someone who’s ready to take the fall for it

shut your eyes and all will be lost

i’m taking all, i’m taking all

as a rascal taking all, i’m taking all

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o1_1280.jpg

creeping, throbbing

saunter from corner to wall

trying to part the whispers from shouting and calls this will is itching

this want is making me soar

what is expected, to seem a happy *****

come on let’s kills this

demands and notions

all this commotion is not worth it

come one just give this

a second coming

an age is dawning with all smiles and laughter

one foot forward will you be catching my fall once i give i know you’ll be claiming more you’ve had me scratching

you have been talking me soar

what is expected, to carry you in my arms

 

tumblr_navf0mmXhd1th3ab2o2_1280.jpg

i come bearing legacy that we caused jointly in our dawning land i come with delivery and i have wrapped it in my mourning band

i give you my history that i expect your tender arms around give it love and think of me

these are the letters from our compound

we see the dawning of novelty

where we embrace the grand of subtlety time finally caught up with me

a mouldering image of a fleeing fugitive

toned down but playful you say your greetings your cup is brimful sorrow stricken with a

now we found the cure returning to the shore change is always given

with goodbyes smile

to the searchers who explore

don’t expect to hear from me

’cause i have got to feed our hungry mouths i do enjoy your company

but we must work to keep you content

i see the better and worse in me

i embrace the grand of subtlety

but you finally caught up with me

a mouldering image of a fleeing fugitive

bounty lyrics
 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o9_1280.jpg

there it was the land of decay


we should pack our things and run away rest in the quick sand
shoulder to shoulder, hand in hand sink slowly not take flight
let silence take us at daylight
take a deep breath as we go, as we go
wanting higher
wanting higher up
wanting higher
’til morning forces us to climb back down i’d rather stay, i’d rather let us drown
what a harsh unpleasant hello
the paranoia i’ve learned to live with although i will never shake what’s there behind
your songs are still playing in my mind
all that white only turns you blue
look after me and i’ll look after you
take a deep breath as we go, as we go

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o7_1280.jpg

i thought i felt a spark


i thought i saw a flame
then something changed in you
who took the blame
my plan was foolproof
as i became the fortress of your heart
love, the kind that kills and scars
will make you kneel and crawl to hell and back the words that slit your throat
and make you think of love as the new black
as what you lack
love
the sound of letting go the sight of youth
that we all set aside when the world was new under the full moon only endless rain
and absence of your heart
love, the kind that kills and scars
will make you kneel and crawl to hell and back the words that slit your throat
and make you think of love as the new black
as what you lack
love

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o8_1280.jpg

you gave me life


in return i’ll torch pretend you can watch it burn
in the ashes of your town
we will build it back down

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o6_1280.jpg

you can’t be the night

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o5_1280.jpg

dress the part it’s storytelling time


sharpen your knives
watering mouths
clean your plates for some tender i
tell me how the story ends now
come home, come see our place our labyrinth, you keep pace we push the boundaries
so the rules are bent
so it’s give and take
come wallow in my sorrow breathe your air into my lungs what hides in my shadow
my worst fear is real life
tell me how the story ends now

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o4_1280.jpg

a backwards march


my back against meadows of fear
where it all began
and there’s a hunt, for they seak the whom
and the purest of hearts let their spirits be consumed
there’s a new world laid at your feet
we build an army from nothing
we raise our children to the beat it’s comforting pounding
a forward talk
solely against old ways and means
we’re not like them, nesu
i’m on a hunt to find the cure
and before i depart into the deepest blue
behind all insecurity there is a wall of assurance she is her own worst enemy
she fights her battles for no one
there’s a new world laid at your feet
we build an army from nothing
we raise our children to the beat of it’s comforting pounding
let it sink in for a new beginning
you know better now
water fills her lungs and she’s inhaling you feel better now
underneath the stars her body sinking you do better now
a heavy sigh then not a sound
we have no lives to sacrifice
she makes us sing, dampens the cries
if there’s a want for something new
you might find me at the start or where it ends for you

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o3_1280.jpg

little hope


little home of heavenly
come and save us from this ugly truth little hope, sprung from necessity
may all good things in life come to you
little ghost
so innocent and carefree
they will never stop hunting you little voice
life got the best of me
and in time that’s what awaits you too
little hope
sing a song of fire
i grow up to be just like that little hope, little hope
sing a song of fire
little hope
loudly sounding siren
if you want
your dream of life back little hope, little hope sing a song of fire
i’ve seen the truth and it’s nothing like you said i’ve seen the picture of your perfect world
now you can touch the halo around my crowned head so many questions so many things unsaid

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o2_1280.jpg

used to be clean


now i’m filthy as can be scrubbing off every spot used to be mean
now i’m good as can be brace me up
i’m your slut
may the god of me protect my soul
as i stay a little while longer
in this dusty rabbit hole
to sing my song chained onto your bed
used to be told
my silence is gold coughing up every drop used to give small
now i’m granting you all stepping up
i’m your slut

 

tumblr_nayu9vI8C21th3ab2o1_1280.jpg

i never dreamt i’d meet someone like you


all unwanted features build the unity of you but i like you
you see the overall of what we are
is it a sad sad sight viewed from afar why don’t you call
whatever made you into clump like you
the icing cold that leaks out through cracks of you makes us as new
whatever made you seem so very small
are you tiny in real life but large in thought who’s standing tall
cannot wait until i get my hands on you we can do the things we said we would
you never had a true friend like i
someone to pick you up when you needed to
be carried through
if my hands weren’t so very sharp
this broken glass that surrounds wherever we are wouldn’t do us part
whatever made you into clump like you
the fiery warmth that reeks out from miles of you is burning through
whatever made you seem so very small
are you in real life but large in thought
come stand up tall
cannot wait until i get my hands on you
we can do the things we said we would cannot wait until i see your smiling faces and our love
will be misunderstood
