Under The Plaintive Sky (4:10)

Cover of Since the Day It All Came Down

From Since the Day It All Came Down and 1 other release

And so does the downhearted tune
Resound through this murky night
And the wind groan its wistful song
For the ill-lucked dwellers in plight

These two round-shouldered figures
Forward slowly through this grey day
Under the fores’ts white canopy
Out of the drifting snow’s way

With rime dressed-faces they wander
With guilt carved-hearts they flee
With grim stained-minds they hover
Between hope and despair

With rime dressed-faces they wander
With guilt carved-hearts they flee
With grim stained-minds they ponder

If they ever be free of their sins

May the stars become my eyes
And the wind become my hearing
Let them guide us through
These pitch-dark mornings

May the snowfall end
And the shining moon rise
So we can find our way out
From these all-consuming nights

Underneath the blanket of stars
Embraced by another cold night
Two round-shouldered figures
Leave these shores behind

Quietly they wonder
If they ever will see the light
They now lose in their shadows
Owe to the darkest of nights

    @B4TTL3H4RD3N3D1 - Fuckin' right. @into_the_shades - I definitely agree. Their lyrics are what makes them my favorite band. Their music is amazing by itself, but coupled with their atmosphere and the sheer magnitude of poetic awesome of their lyrics... must-have band.
