Cold Skin by Seven Lions and Echos

Monstercat has been known to release excellent music. Even if it is not commercial, the quality of the music is known to transcend boundaries. Another one of the perfect music scores I found was the song – Cold Skin. It is composed by Seven Lions with the music group Echos. The lyrics and the tunes are hauntingly beautiful! It can be found on YouTube, iTunes, etc. Support such artists and their outstanding abilities.

“Cold Skin”
Here I am again
Floating through the silence in my cold skin
Our bodies wearing thin
My fears tell me I’ll never win
Our bodies wearing thin
Wearing thin

And there’s darkness here (darkness here)
The whole world I fear (I fear)
And my rumors seem to drown (to drown)
But I won’t let them take me down
I won’t let them take me down
Down, down, down, oh

I won’t let them take me down
(Down, down, down, down, down)
I won’t let them take me down

I’ll rise and I’ll fall again
Fighting off the violence in my cold skin
Our bodies wearing thin
My fears tell me I’ll never win
Our bodies wearing thin
Wearing thin

And there’s darkness here (darkness here)
The whole world I fear (I fear)
And my rumors seem to drown (to drown)
But I won’t let them take me down
I won’t let them take me down
Down, down, down, oh

I won’t let them take me down
(Down, down, down, down, down)
I won’t let them take me down

“Heathens”

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

Welcome to the room of people
Who have rooms of people that they loved one day
Docked away
Just because we check the guns at the door
Doesn’t mean our brains will change from hand grenades

You’ll never know the psychopath sitting next to you
You’ll never know the murderer sitting next to you
You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

We don’t deal with outsiders very well
They say newcomers have a certain smell
You have trust issues, not to mention
They say they can smell your intentions

You’ll never know the freakshow sitting next to you
You’ll have some weird people sitting next to you
You’ll think, “How’d I get here, sitting next to you?”
But after all I’ve said
Please don’t forget
(Watch it, watch it)

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
Wait for them to ask you who you know
Please don’t make any sudden moves
You don’t know the half of the abuse

All my friends are heathens. Take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know
(Watch it)
Please, all my friends are heathens. Take it slow
(Watch it)
Wait for them to ask you who you know

Why’d you come? You knew you should have stayed
(It’s blasphemy)
I tried to warn you just to stay away
(Away)
And now they’re outside ready to bust
(To bust)
It looks like you might be one of us

Rewind-Poets of The Fall

From the pioneers of thoughtful music, and sung by Marko Saaresto, Rewind is just another beautiful song by Poets of the Fall.

Lyrics:

What do we have but illusions where one man’s absolute is another’s choice
Giving in to confusion, till love and hate both tempt with the same voice
Won’t you take me to a higher ground, I need to see again the way I’m bound
N’ choose the uneasy redemption, run by fear and the flaws of attraction

Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side
So I’ll know it will not leave me wanting, I see my heart, waving me bye-bye
Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side

If life itself has a meaning, is it anything more than what we choose to call it
Sweet words make appealing, but they only serve to mask the smell of what you buried
Is it worth your while to spend on a lie, even though you cannot see eye to eye
N’ give in to the rumor seduction, run by fear and all the good intentions

Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side
So I’ll know it will not leave me wanting, like my love, kissing me good bye
Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side

If this is how we think we make amends
We’re in for a race that never ends
Where is it we think we’ll go
What is it we think we know
It’ll never change until we change ourselves

Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side
So I’ll know it will not leave me wanting, I see my heart, waving me bye-bye
Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side
So I’ll know it will not leave me wanting, like my love, kissing me good bye
Rewind, I wanna go it again, light up the dark, halo on the side

Favourite No-Lyric Music!

Rootkit Wilfire (Monsterkat Release). This is my new favourite song. It’s peppy, and it’s fun! Which is a huge surprise because I rarely ever love such music without any lyrics. Listen to it and love it yourself 😀 And it’s also kind of free. Kudos to the creator!
