We Were Evergreen – Antlers Lyrics

I rolled out of bed out of comfort
and saw that I had a thick woollen head
and two antlers, how did it come to that

I know you said I will forget this
that I’ll pull it off
with a little time and some practice
but I won’t live long enough

so you’ve seen it all, yeah you’ve seen it all
but you won’t see me
yeah you’ve done it all, yeah you’ve done it all
but what have you done for me

I dropped out of school out of college
and just disappeared
I left you a note for your knowledge
nothing’s worth staying here

my fur is a dark German forest
my tail is a brush, there’s thousands of marks
leading nowhere, I am not in a rush

so you’ve seen it all, yeah you’ve seen it all
but you won’t see me
yeah you’ve done it all, yeah you’ve done it all
but what have you done to me

We Were Evergreen – Quicksand Lyrics

I’m not turning back
I’m not coming for you
there’s no time for that
there’s no valid excuse

the less I comprehend
the blanker maps will abound
won’t you come over
so I can wrap you around me

we’re now stranded in the quicksand
we’re now choking on words
we have landed in the deep end
we’re not moving onwards

I’m a sick device
a transit gloria tune
those infected eyes
are so becoming on you

keep no track of time
we’re not settling scores
it’s a sacrifice
not a casualty of war

shed no layered skin
shed no light on us all
every severed twin
will wear a sign on their soul

We Were Evergreen – Daughters Lyrics

I slept like a village and woke up inside you,
the years had all vanished
and swallowed up the dark
somebody had finished the book I was writing
the ending was wrong
it just went back to the start

a carpet of women all rippled with silence
to cover me with the remainders from the floor
the lake wanted swimming
I melted inside it, and sank to the limits
I’d been there once before

daughters fill this up
(we’re not gonna make it)
(we won’t make it in time)

and 49 daughters cut 49 heads off
they clog up the bottom
and here they’re floating still
one hole to another, an intricate circuit
the more you sieve out and
the more you have to fill

the barrel is leaking, the water’s a-seeping
the boulder’s a-weighing
it’s all uphill from now
we have to ignore this and fly to the surface
it’s too high above us
we won’t make it in time

We Were Evergreen – False Start Lyrics

gun was shot after I was already up
the rule is clear it’s a false start, a false start
two men drop, one to the bottom and one to the top
we got ourselves in a cold war, a cold war

bird in hand, friend of a feather, the muscle plan
didn’t work out like I thought it would
eyes ahead, keep on rippling through the sand
once I stop it’s over, it’s over

in the fast track i’m a ticking bomb
minor setback, but I’ve gone too far
I can make it, just a few more yards
I’m not failing, yeah I’m almost done

can’t believe what just happened, it wasn’t me
I know better than losing like this
clear my head, nobody saw it, I’m up ahead
this is between the footmarks and me

4 long yeats, I’ve been waiting to conquer this
to spoil it up with a point one, a point one
I can’t let, let my people down, not again
not after that last headline, that headline

on the podium, I’m the golden man
in the columns, in the paper stands
what’s my record, it’s always the same
never beaten, yeah I own this game
yeah I own this game

Tidal Crusher by Cavalier Rose Lyrics

I was really desperate to know the lyrics of Tidal Crusher by Cavalier Rose so I emailed them last Saturday. To my surprise, Garrett Gibbs Drinon, their guitarist replied to me! I was spazzing like mad last Wednesday. GAH! So cool for a band to reply! So I replied again and look what arrived in my mail today! Lyrics to Tidal Crusher! So I’m sharing it with you guys! So happy! ❤ Now that I’m listening to the song again, I’m wondering why I didn’t get the lyrics before. Maybe because I listen to music at a low volume. Anyway, whatever, here it is! 😀

We’re underwater, Sheriff
Please excuse us, we got salt for eyes
You can shoot us from your watch tower

and you’ll see
Ain’t got no legs to stand on
Our heart-strings taut with fishing twine
And a big balloon for ear drums

Let it be
Nice and easy, dee
Under here with me
But you ain’t never going home

Come on you tidal crusher
My monsoon heart’s got business here
Who are you to split asunder

and you’ll see
Ain’t got no legs to stand on
Invertebrate my pioneer
We will ne’er get out from under

Wanna breathe?
Want some slow release?
You can call on me
But you ain’t never going home

And all your marigold and flotsam
Fill my diving bell in the stratosphere
Floating way away forever
got to split to sink you

Bigger brother with your field below
Field below field below

Tell me tell me tell me
nice and slow
here we go
Tell me where it hurts

Here for ever in my liquid lair
Lost forever what the fuck I care
Nothing’s fair
Just digging in the dirt
In the dirt

Let it be
Nice and easy, dee
Under here with me
But you ain’t never going home
