"The Death" as written by Nicholas Jon Peill, Matthew Oliver Derham, James Putnam, Henry Erroll Spenner and Thorunn Magnusdottir....
You're not gonna drag me into the sunlight
I don't plan to kick and pull at you all night
If I lie here, I'll drift from your fingers
Close the door and show me how to begin this

Loosen the harness
Sing me back to sleep

If I can't be carried alive
I'll take my chances by your side
These empty words won't bring us home
Choke them down
Not all men get buried alive
They fall apart before our eyes
If empty branches wait for us
Cut them down

I don't wanna make this effortless for you
I didn't choose to let this one fall through
If all I brought you left you in sorrow
You're setting down the paths that we cannot follow

Loosen the harness
Sing me back to sleep

If I can't be carried alive
I'll take my chances by your side
These empty words won't bring us home
Choke them down
Not all men get buried alive
They fall apart before our eyes
If empty branches wait for us
Cut them down

    General Commentrawkous yet absolutely beautiful.
    i love the lyrics they're dark, mysterious and exciting.

    Fields are a class band, excellent live as well.
