rainer eric I listened to the songs for hours and they still sound "fresh" to me, so much is going on. I do not memorize it.

Christøph Trvm More pop, less folk. Still a very good album. Favorite track: My Beloved.

Alex Marshall The grand orchestration and faultless harmonies do a great job of accompanying the dark yet compelling love stories that this album is filled to the brim with. Favorite track: The Roses.

Track Name: My Beloved
How do I? Get rid
Of the Demon
You walked
Oh you walked, around and around in my heart
I don’t want to love another
You and I are forever tethered
Oh so thin, we walk this line
And down below is the deepest, darkest, lie….


Oh my love he walks in line
My beloved, every time
My beloved, every time
My beloved, you’re out of line
Oh my love is hard as nails
My love died upon the rail
My love died upon the rail
My love died, on beds of nails
You and I are forever tethered
You and I are forever weathered
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will awake
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will take

You are, the master
You are, the master
You aren’t not, some sadist master
You are the master

You and I are forever tethered
You and I are forever weathered
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will awake
Oh the bough breaks and the devil will take
Track Name: Faster Than The Devil
Faster than the devil oh oh oh
Faster than my rights
Faster than the devil oh oh oh
Faster than my life
Oh oh oh
Jonathan you ride
Oh how you ride
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

There’s a crack in the wall and an eye
The Tell-Tale Heart and I
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

Faster than the devil
On horseback you ride
On the back of the devil for you’ve taken your own life

Oh Oh Oh
Jonathan you ride
Oh how you ride
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life

There’s a crack in the wall and an eye
The Tell-Tale Heart and I
For I paint you like the devil
And I give you no life
Track Name: Keeley
Keeley put your white dress on
And you’ll become the maiden of the dawn
With your vile of poison you run
A substitute for what was called love

Cause oh, oh we got a slash of devil’s tongue
And it’s displayed across our palms
Where do we belong?
And the moon, gazes on us with empty eyes
Trailing the heal of demise
And we slip in to Edentide
And our isolation is here at even’s fall
With Bella Donnas lacing up the wall
It’s just poison that’s all

Oh Keeley come back from the pine
Before we slip in to Edentide
You never did anybody wrong
And you’ll always be my maiden of the dawn

Cause oh, oh we got a slash of devil’s tongue
And it’s displayed across our palms
Where do we belong?
And the moon, gazes on us with empty eyes
Trailing the heal of demise
And we slip in to Edentide
And our isolation is here at even’s fall
With Bella Donnas lacing up the wall
It’s just poison that’s all
Track Name: Thoroughbred
Your assault
Has been told
Even your breath, takes a toll

Thoroughbred
Thoroughbred
Blood stained red
And I hold you like the dead


I’ve seen you, through and through
You wear me, just like a noose

Thoroughbred
Eyes beat red
If charged you’re better off dead

I’ve seen you
Through and through
You hold me
Just like a jewel
Hold me, Hold me


Thoroughbred
Taken from the ledge
A horse’s head
Is lyin’ in your bed

Hold me, Hold me
We’re softer than the light
Yet cold and dark as night

A farmer and a gun
You’re your father’s golden son
A horse is in your lungs
And this war it ain’t never won
Track Name: Dandelion Daze
I left a wish for you on the lawn
I hope that you can love again
I know that things are wrong
And it’s hit you like the weight of lead

All these guns have left me
All these guns have left me here
All my hate is breached
For the coming of a brand new year

Dandelion Daze
I left a wish for you on my grave
Would you march upon
The river where my love slipped away

All these guns have left me
All these guns have left me here
All my hate is breached
For the coming of a brand new year
Track Name: Holiday Song
You, said your life was empty
Oh but these arms are here for eternity
And your family, full of dread
Lay poisoned, in their beds
It’s not your fault, it’s just the way you were bred

Oh all these lies beneath the cross
Oh, stab your eyes out
It’s sight you lost
And the sickened, and unwed
With their cats and candles around their beds
If you’re alone, it’s o.k. if that’s how it ends

Can you take me, down to the water
Can you lead me, straight under
Oh your eyes, cold and serene
In this watery dream

And your family, full of dread
Lay poisoned, in their beds
It’s not your fault, it’s just the way you were bred
Track Name: The Wolves
When you were thrown, to the wolves
I tried to save you, but my heart was in repose
And please take with you, this piece of fragile gold
For my jewels they lay here on the altar
Safely hidden from your rapture

When they drove the stake into you
I saw your body it was hollow through and through
And I don’t need faith to know that I can still see you

For I died with you in this rapture
Our bodies slain here on the altar

When you were small, they wrote lines on the wall, that said you’re nothing at all

And the capture, of your dreams, and the rapture and the scream, and your body’s still next to me.

When you died, everyone knew your name
Your body and face carved out in a deliberate frame
And we all surrendered to this deep impending shame
For we died with you in this rapture, our bodies slain here on the altar

When you were small, they wrote lines on the wall,
That said you’re nothing at all
And the capture, of your dream, and the rapture, and the scream, and your body’s still next to me
