Song of the Week {Things the Flood Gave Us}

20 May

Please meet The Dreaded Diamond. Tyler & Juli Lydell (brother and sister) happen to be friends of mine BUT I assure you I’m not bias. Their new EP being released tonight, Healthy Fears is completely awesome. I’m so bummed I can’t attend their CD release show tronight, but if you live in the area you should totally go. Or you should just buy their EP, because its only $6 and its like, really good, yo.

Things the Flood Gave Us

by The Dreaded Diamond

Hail at the table, clouds make up our couch
We planned to kill time, but it had a thicker skull than we’d realized
Days close around me like a newborn’s skin in daylight
So I hide in my room, pretending I am buried
As a piece of skyDig me up, lover, and lay me on your chest
Soon I will seep through your skin, your pulse, your organs
Your bones will hold us tighter than weak arms couldI’m not afraid if you’re not afraid
I’m not afraid if you’re not

Smoked more than enough to develop a cough
I love to watch you, but enough is enough
‘Cause to live, you’ll need your mouth, your throat, your lungs
To sleep, I’ll need to hear you breathe in and out

I’m not afraid if you’re not afraid
I’m not afraid if you’re not

Right, right

I’m maybe a little afraid
Still have the same neuroses that used to triturate

I’m maybe a little afraid
But it’s not enough to worry
I’m not worried, if you’re not
