lyrics

There's a stowaway,
But for now: morning brew,
Blissful ignorance & sunlit headlines
From the curtains that she drew

There was no good in seeing it coming
So we didn't

And the birds swiftly cleared the field
Was that scarecrow there before?
How could we have missed it?

There was no possible way to ignore it
So we didn't

And when our prophets finally come
They will come on ships of gold

The arsenic cure inside her
Lures the crab to try and fight it
While her coat is shed by piercing rays of light

There was nothing else to do but sit and wait
So we didn't

And when our prophets finally come
They will come on ships of gold
And we put our crosses on
And we promise as we're told

How do I keep hope alive, when she fades so hastily
And if it's true, her days are through, she will be what she has been
Iron whale, oh iron whale, are you sure of what you've seen?
And if you're right, here ends the fight, oh what will become of me?

And when our prophets finally come
They will come on ships of gold
And we put our crosses on
And we promise as we're told

She put the glorious music to the credits in the end
She lit another cigarette and postponed the time for bed

Taking their name from a large ghost dog guarding an old Norwegian castle, the band could also be considered quite elusive and guarding their own principles. ... more
