Stranger Than Kindness
Fever Ray Lyrics


Stranger than kindness
Bottled light from hotels
Spilling everything
Wet hand from the volcano
Sobers your skin
Stranger than Kindness

You caress yourself
And grind my soft cold bones below
Your map of desire
Burned in your flesh
Even a fool can come
A strange lit stair
And find a rope hanging there
Stranger than kindness

Keys rain like heaven's hair
There is no home there is no bread
We sit at the gate and scratch

The gaunt fruit of passion
Dies in the light
Stranger than kindness

Your sleeping hands journey
The loiter
Stranger than kindness
You hold me so carelessy close
Tell me I'm dirty

I am a stranger
I am a stranger
I am a stranger to kindness

Burned in your flesh
Even a fool can come

And find a rope hanging there

Stranger than kindness
Keys rain like heaven's hair
There is no home there is no bread
We sit at the gate and scratch
The gaunt fruit of passion
Dies in the light

Stranger than kindness
Your sleeping hands
The journey
The loiter

Stranger than kindness
You hold me so carelessly close
Tell me I'm dirty
I am a stranger
I am a stranger
I am a stranger to kindness...

Wet hand from the volcano
Sobers your skin

Stranger than kindness

The loiter

Stranger than kindness
You hold me so carelessly close
Tell me I'm dirty
I am a stranger
I am a stranger
I am a stranger to kindness

No, being hold up in your Scandinavian house for half the year in the winter has no effect on your mind. Perfectly normal thoughts.

It’s not the temperature as much as it is the light, or lack thereof during winter. I lived in Alaska for twenty years and having only 5 hours of light during winter did have an effect on people.

how ironic.

@Nathan Parsons i think he's talking about the video, not the song

@Julia Dias hot winter? Not in Santa Catarina

Julia Dias

Dont worry. Live in a place where winter is hot and summer is hotter than hell, like Brasil, is also very healthy.

Karin Dreijer Andersson and Nick Cave should get married, write an evil love masterpiece album, and then break up so that each of them would write an evil sorrow masterpiece album. Fuuuu--

Fun idea. Karin is a lesbian though, so I don’t see that happening any time soon lol

This is my favorite song from the album, the video evokes my most primitive feelings, she's dark and beautiful and the music desintegrates you..

This is a stunning cover of Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' song "Stranger than Kindness" from Your Funeral....My Trial. The song was written by Anita Lane and Blixa Bargeld. Thanks Fever Ray, you took an already favourite song of mine and embued it with another layer of awesome!
