I sit alone in the dark, and I try to remember
The words you spoke when you summoned the Ender
You chained my life to an ancient master
Will the curse be reversed if I say it backwards?

What you crossed was a line at the edge of the void
And you can't crawl back without making a choice
But then something escaped when you opened the gate
You cheated death and sealed your fate

(1, 2, 3, 4)

Put on your new dress tonight
And look to the west, the moon's in the sky
I wanna get at least that high
Wanna leave the Earth and my things behind
You told me you're never gonna die
How am I supposed to sleep through the night?
You showed me the secret of life
I can't forget that look in your eye

Been a long time gone, living out on the coast
It's a long way back from the edge of the cosmos
Truths once known never come unknown
I learned that lesson lives ago
To die for good, it must be earned
The ways of death can never be learned
And the life I've lived is only dust
The darkness comes for all of us

Put on your new dress tonight
And I look to the west, the moon's in the sky
I wanna get at least that high
Wanna leave the Earth and all things behind
You told me you're never gonna die
How am I supposed to sleep through the night?
You showed me the secret of life
I can't forget that look in your eye

One of the many reasons that I am a subscriber to RP, is that it is on this site that I was "exposed" to this band, among others.  The downside, according to my better half, is that my iTunes expenses have also gone up.  And it's going to happen again.
watched a Lord Huron concert video recently - really good stage act. !
It's  really fun at a show, Ben gets his groove on during this.
listen to that bass line.
Playing Blue Hotel with this tempo would make a nice cover 
A truly most excellent song, the sound is different and very easy to listen to
Liking this a lot...
They develop their recognizable sound
and its likeable.. Good


Another band w/Michigan roots
{#Devil_pimp}so zesty! diff from strange trails but out standing
