Shearwater Lyrics


When the rooks were laid in the piles
By the sides of the road
Crashing into the aerials
Tangled in the laundry lines

And gathered in a field
They were burned in a feathering pyre
With their cold black eyes

When the swallows fell from the eaves
And the gulls from the spires
The starlings, in millions
Would feed on the ground where they lie

The ambulance men said
There's nowhere to flee for your life
So we stay inside
And we'll sleep until the world of man is paralyzed

Oh, the falconer awakes to the sound of the bells
Overhead and southbound
They are leaving his life
And each empty cage just rings in his heart like a bell

Underneath these cold stars
In this trembling light, and he cries
Amen, let their kingdom come tonight
Let this dream be realized

when the rooks were laid in piles
by the sides of the road
crashing into the aerials
tangled in the laundery line
and gathered in a field
they were burned in a feathering pyre
with a cold black eye


when the swallows fell from the eaves
and the gulls from the spires
and starlings in the millions
will feed on the ground where they lie
the ambulance men said there's
nowhere to flee for your life
so we stayed inside
and we'll sleep until

the world of man is paralyzed


Oh the falcon heir awakes
to the sound of the bells
they're heading southbound
they're leaving it alive
and each empty cage just rings
and is heard like a bell
underneath these cold stars
and this troubled night
and the cries of man
let the kingdom come to nigh
let this dream be realized



Paolo Zanelli

Statua di marmo brunita il ricordo di un padre nostro nel pianto 

Sulla collina
alla fine della corsa
correvo perchè avevo paura
e odiavo quel pianto che mi prendeva la gola nella tagliola del perchè
non sapevo e non saprei che cosa davvero
urlava nel cuore tanto dolore
sul tetto della città
in cima al mio fiato piangevo
da solo
guardando il cielo
aspettando un segno che mi portasse lontano
un vento caldo
un autunno rosso nel petto
che fiorisse ancora i ricordi di un'estate passata tra le braccia di uno sconosciuto                 amore
mai visto
sentito
sempre
nella musica che piange
del violino
la voce
di un bambino che torna a chiamare un sogno nascosto in quel giardino
seppellito per ritrovarti oggi sotto la statua di marmo brunita dal corvo
 che adesso mi guarda
magico e storto
il mondo è capovolto
la pioggia che arriva alle tue mani giunte al padre nostro
è il mio pianto di foglie morte
il destino
nel vento sentirti ancora una volta vicino

Paolo Zanelli

Capo volto d'amore (la risposta è la domanda la testa inizia dal passo)

ti amo
piccola risposta di dio
nella trasparenza di una brezza che increspa la pozza
davanti ai miei passi
fermi
lacrime
centrano il vuoto specchio del cielo
infranto angelo al suolo
per sempre radicano nuvole d'esperanto
versi di pianto e incanto
per sempre fiorisce il desiderio di tornare in alto
Padre perchè mi hai abbandonato?

For those not in the know, be sure to check out these guys' other band, Okkervil River. I'm hard-pressed to choose a favorite. Real musical virtuosos.

Wow...Totally not what I was looking for. I was looking for Refuse by Rooks(deathcore). However, this band is amazing. "Sometimes the best bands, are the ones you aren't looking for"

Funnily enough I actually found this band in 2009 before I started getting into Porcupine Tree and SW's solo stuff in 2010. It was quite a pleasant surprise to find that he was a fan of Shearwater.
