The Culling
Chelsea Wolfe Lyrics


Dead eyes, I only call you when you′re in my dreams
Died too young, the culling then, it was obscene
I am depleted by love
I am depleted by love

I'll never tell the secrets of my family
Bled out, a cult of anonymity
The kettle is wheeling, my love
Riding on the back of a hell they caused
One ear to the ground
One eye on the room
My tongue on your pulse
My finger in your wound

Sweet dead eyes, I long to hear you again
Sweet dead eyes, I long to see your face
Sweet dead eyes, I long for that illustrious hiss
Sweet dead eyes, I know you feel it

No turning back, only God knows what we′re headed for
The flowers bloom, the sun rises

Flux, hiss, welt, groan
Flux, hiss, welt, groan
Flux, hiss, welt, groan
Flux, hiss, welt, groan
Flux, hiss, welt, groan
Flux, hiss, welt, groan

The Culling:

Dead eyes
I only call you when you're in my dreams
Died too young
The culling then, it was obscene

I am depleted by love
I am depleted by love

I'll never tell the secrets of my family
Bled out
A cult of anonymity

The kettle is wheeling, my love
Riding on the back of a hell they caused

One ear to the ground
One eye on the room
My tongue on your pulse
My finger in your wound

Sweet dead eyes, I long to hear you again
Sweet dead eyes, I long to see your face
Sweet dead eyes, I long for that illustrious hiss
Sweet dead eyes, I know you feel it

No turning back
"Only god knows what we're headed for"
The flowers bloom
The sun rises

Flux
Hiss
Welt
Groan

Chelsea is brilliant. Her songs feel like a soundtrack, the lyrics are perfect, she's both dark and beautiful and the video is like watching a disturbing memory... what else can you ask for?

....her phone number.

Absolutely. She is masterful at blending genres & her voice is so unique in that it's sweet & delicate but also dark & menacing at the same time. She has excellent control over her voice as well, and I love how she can switch from light to dark in an instant (Iron Moon" for example.) Truly one of the best artists out right now.
