Marching Song
Esben and the Witch Lyrics


In a wilderness of foggy thoughts
Battling with your minds retorts
And walking on empty plains
Where deserts so calm
Even drowning rains

Soldier on
To this marching song
Head held high
With eyes fixed strong

Drum beat died
Cymbal crash down
The mud it is thick
With desires to drown
Your feet in earth

Your boots are sinking
Sink with the memories
Of long lost thinking

And armies of many
Are fighting their fight
Lost in the blackness
They're losing their sights

Your veins are my trenches
My gun is my own
The whispers fall heavy
With delicate moans

Arms and legs
Teeth and nail
Our fragile companions
Are destined to fail

For this battalion
Has been run through
Therefore captains and comrades
I bid you all adieu

Thanks

Visceral, disturbing, incredibly powerful. My emotions are in a riot; I'm both upset and wildly impressed. It's not often one finds a music video that actually succeeds in making one /feel/ the essence of the song.

Chills down the spine, can feel the hairs on the back of my neck prickle as she starts singing

Aschenputtel

Mesmerizing, memorable, musical genius.

Vjačeslavs Janens

No way 10 years have passed since this...

Nick Walsh

something about this band makes me think they will be big someday

Isabella Pakulska

Seen them in Liverpool last year, one of the best female vocals i've heard, live sounds even better... Amazing as she's so tiny, smaller than my wife and her guitar was as tall as her :).

Daan van 't Woud

@Love The League also known as a bass guitar. Because it's still a guitar. Not a contra bass, or a bass recorder.
