I rarely come across a band that leaves me with shivers after each song. Each word in this case. This band brings the emotional passion music lights fire too with the poetic tale of love. This whole album starts and end the same, it's done so cleverly. Hardcore/Rock at its best. Lyrics that make you explore your every emotion, and visualize every beautiful scene possible.
So yeah, get hold of this album...
"Somewhere At The Bottom Of The River Between Vega And Altair."
"I think I saw you in my sleep, darling, I think I saw you in my dreams you were stitching up the seams on every broken promise That your body couldn't keep. I think I saw you in my sleep. I thought I heard the door open, oh no, I thought I heard the door open but I only heard it close. I thought I heard a plane crashing, but Now I think it was your passion snapping. I think you saw me confronting my fear, it Went up with a bottle and went down with the beer and I think you ought to stay away from here There are ghosts in the walls and they Crawl in your head through your ear. I think I saw you in my sleep, lover, I think I saw you in my dreams you were Stitching up the seams on every mangled promise That your body couldn't keep. I think I saw you in my sleep ////// I know that someday you'll be sleeping, Darling, likely dreaming off the pain. I hope you'll hear me in the streetlight's humming, softly breathing out your name. I know that even with the seams stitched tightly, darling scars will remain. I say we scrape them from each other, darling, and let them wash off in the rain. And when they run into the river, oh no, let the water not complain. I swear that even with the distance, slowly wearing at your name, Your hands still catch the light the right way and Our hearts still beat the same. "
