Your Bones
Of Monsters and Men Lyrics


In the spring we made a boat
Out of feathers, out of bones.
We set fire to our homes,
Walking barefoot in the snow.

Distant rhythm of the drum
As we drifted towards the storm.
Baby lion lost his teeth,
Now they're swimming in the sea.
Troubled spirits on my chest
Where they laid to rest.
The birds all left my tall friend
As your body hit the sand.
Million stars up in the sky
Formed a tigers eye
That looked down on my face,
Out of time and out of place.

So hold on,
Hold on to what we are,
Hold on to your heart.

Awaken by the sound
Of a screaming owl.
Chasing leafs in the wind,
Going where we've never been.

Said goodbye to you my friend,
As the fire spread.
All that's left are your bones
That will soon sink like stones

So hold on,
Hold on to what we are,
Hold on to your heart.

So hold on,
Hold on to your heart.

In the spring we made a boat, 
Out of feathers, out of bones. 
We set fire to our homes, 
Walking barefoot in the snow. 

Distant rhythm of the drum 
As we drifted towards the storm. 
Baby lion lost his teeth, 
Now they're swimming in the sea. 

Troubled spirits on my chest 
Where they laid to rest. 
The birds all, left my tall friend, 
As your body hit the sand. 
Million stars up in the sky 
Formed a tigers eye 
That looked down on my face, 
Out of time and out of place. 

So hold on, 
Hold on to what we are, 
Hold on to your heart. 

Awaken by the sound 
Of a screaming owl, 
Chasing leaves in the wind, 
Going where we've never been. 
Said goodbye to you my friend 
As the fire spread. 
All that's left are your bones 
That will soon sink like stones.

And so I was loaded on the bony longboat.
Dead dragons.
Even in death they stood tall.
Even without flesh they were mighty.

Ahead, dusk aproaches.
Behind, my people linger on the frozen shore.
Our village, set ablaze.
Not by lightning, but by pain.

Father lit it up
Consumed by grief,
Blinded by love,
Wulfgard howled and torched.

Mother fell first.
Five winters ago,
She couldn't resist the famine.
Not with me.

Now my time came.
To go back to her.
To the feline eyes she gave to me.
That's what the elders say.

The sky is cracking gently.
I can see her.
She looks sad,
But I'm already on fire.

I'm coming, Mother.
My People, remain strong.
The frozen ground is our home.
The sea breeze is our breath.

Farewell, my friends.

Lëon, son of Wulfgard.
