Feel the ocean as it breathes
Shivering teeth
See the mountains where they meet
Smothering me
As the wind fends off the waves
I count down the days
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

I find comfort in the sound
And the shape of the heart
How it echoes through the chest
From under the ground
As the hills turn into holes
I fill them with gold
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

And I paint your body black
I hide in your hair
And you're staring back at me
Like I wasn't there
As our bodies become stills
We welcome the fear
Heavy stones
Fear no weather

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

And from the rain
Comes a river running wild that will create
And empire for you
Illuminate
There's a river running wild that will create
An empire for you
An empire for two
An empire for you
An empire for two

i really hardly listen to any lyrics at all , am i in the minority?somehow i kind of  feel guilty about it , i think higher percentage of women follow the lyrics but that's not to say that majority of males do not register the lyrics.

Their lyrics -for you & for two -give he listener that audible experience.
Much better the U2's "with or without CHEW"

What is with this seriously annoying trend in pop tunes?

The lyrics are comprised almost solely of:  OH WHOA OH WHOA OH WHOA OH WHOAWHOAWHOA WHOA

Grrrrrrr!{#Fire}
 
Well, this has more lyrics than that, but still, that "whoa-oh-oh" trend is quite annoying and has been popular with a number of "nouveau-folk" bands in recent years.

What about when you hear this song playing?
I really like (most of) their first album. I don't think this album is as good. This song isn't bad, though.

blech. terrible vocals. follows the recent trend of singing like one's mouth is full of marbles, but adds annoyingly twee pronunciation.

Hey, in the context of regular conversation I'd agree 100% with you, but if one's recording an album, at least TRY to get it right, thus avoiding becoming laughingstock of the hour on Radio Paradise.

But hey, they're Icelandic right? - the same country that spewed Bjork out of of the unholy communion between a mountain troll and a whoopee-cushion. I guess anything goes there.

BTW: I totally hear "...How I fucked you..." as well {#Music}

There should be a WTF button...

This is the perfect case of "overproduction" with Indie-Pop these days. Take this exact melody, same lyrics, same chords, and give it to someone like William Fitzsimmons. Let him sing it slowly, with a single acoustic guitar, and none of these brash sound effects trolling through my headphones, and none of these excessive synths and guitar layers... It's not a bad song, but it could have been so much better if more artists would learn to chill out on the production.

 
Most people like some milk and sugar in their coffee.
pff. Acceptable. peasants! {#Lol}
