From Finner
Of Monsters and Men Lyrics


We came here on his back
And we caught your eye
The salty ocean wind
Made the seagulls cry
The rocking of his house
Had me holding on
But I knew that I was safe
From there on out

And the waves that hit his face
Marked the past
And the the farrows on his skin
Oh, how time goes fast

And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy

After every sunny day
Came a stormy night
That's when Finner would say
Keep your heads held high

And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy

And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy

Ive been having LITTLE TALKS with myself BENEATH MY BED, waiting over SIX WEEKS for this song that I LOVE LOVE LOVE. This video deserves to be seen by well over a THOUSAND EYES... This is one of those songs you can feel deep in YOUR BONES. Weather it's a hike up BLUEBERRY MOUNTAIN, or a visit to your BACKYARD, this song will embed itself into your ORGANS, your heart, brain etc... This is my WINTER SOUND, my MOUNTAIN SOUND, my EMPIRE. This is my YELLOW LIGHT in an ocean of BLACK WATER, because I am only HUMAN, WE all SINK I am a SINKING MAN. It's a SLOW LIFE, and I move SLOW AND STEADY


a PHANTOM follows me as I stare at the SKELETONS covered with ice CRYSTALS near my LAKEHOUSE. I blaze my illegal NUMB BEARS to try and escape the pain as I enter a deep deep SLOOM. I want to be in HAWAII, I want to have this HAPPY SONG with me. I feel this HUNGER, like WOLVES WITHOUT TEETH do. Their DIRTY PAWS follow their KING AND LIONHEART, searching for the I OF THE STORM.


I picture SILHOUETTES of A BOY AND A BIRD, floating on PARTICLES. The boy, JOSIE, is playing with SUGAR IN A BOWL, sadly singing "WERE GETTING OLDER"


This is the power of this song...

I know this is a lyrics video, but since it can be harder to sing along when you only get one word at a time:

We came here on his back
And we caught your eye
The salty ocean wind
Made the seagulls cry
The rocking of his house
Had me holding on
But I knew that I was safe
From there on out

And the waves that hit his face
Marked the past
And the the farrows on his skin
Oh, how time goes fast

And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy

After every sunny day
Came a stormy night
That's when Finner would say
Keep your heads held high
And we are far from home, but we're so happy

Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy
And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy



Ѧ ѧ

We came here on his back
And we caught your eye
The salty ocean wind
Made the seagulls cry
The rocking of his house
Had me holding on
But I knew that I was safe
From there on out
And the waves that hit his face
Marked the past
And the the farrows on his skin
Oh, how time goes fast
And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy
After every sunny day
Came a stormy night
That's when Finner would say
Keep your heads held high
And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy
And we are far from home, but we're so happy
Far from home, all alone, but we're so happy



Ramieverse !

lakehouse- self explanatory title
sloom- swamp in the music video
yellow light- mentions of swimming sharks
sinking man- video of a man drownning
little talks- music video began on an airship/ the crew nearly drowned
love love love- minotaur and sea serpent fell inlove
your bones- music video has a ship sailing into the horizon


just a few examples :)

In case anyone is wondering, Finner is an old Norse term for whale.

Nutcracker Sam

The thing that I love the most about this band, is that all of their songs are so diverse, and their videos are satisfyingly hypnotizing.
