Yellow Light – Of Monsters and Men

I’m looking for a place to start,
But everything feels so different now.
Just grab a hold of my hand,
I will lead you through this wonderland.
Water up to my knees,
But sharks are swimming in the sea.
Just follow my yellow light
And ignore all those big warning signs.

Somewhere deep in the dark
A howling beast hears us talk.
I dare you to close your eyes
And see all the colors in disguise.
Running into the night,
The earth is shaking and I see a light.
The light is blinding my eyes
As the soft walls eat us alive.

Organs – Of Monsters and Men

I am sorry this is always how it goes
The wind blows loudest when you’ve got your eyes closed
But I never changed a single color that I breathe
So you could have tried to take a closer look at me
I am tired of punching in the wind
I am tired of letting it all in
And I should eat you up
And spit you right out
I should not care but I don’t know how

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong

I am sorry for the trouble, I suppose
My blood runs red but my body feels so cold
I guess I could swim for days in the salty sea
But in the end the waves will discolor me

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I cough up my lungs
Because they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
Because I don’t want to stay in the dark

So I take off my face
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I pull out my tongue
Because it reminds me how it all went wrong
And I cough up my lungs
Because they remind me how it all went wrong
But I leave in my heart
Because I don’t want to stay in the dark

Slow Life – Of Monsters and Men

What are they talking about
On the weekends?
Lost in the forest of this heart
Is a foreign still

Why are they shaking their heads?
We’re stuck in slow life
Is it the beating of the chest?
That makes us fear the rest

We’re slowly sailing away
Behind closed eyes
Where not a single ray of light
Can puncture through the night

You caught me in the tide
And I caught you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

You saw me in new light
And I saw you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

Between the daylight
And the deep sea
Lies a swarm of silhouettes
Floating aimlessly

But I’m a mountain
I am a killer
You’ll get lost and buried deep
If you swim with me

You caught me in the tide
And I caught you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

You saw me in new light
And I saw you
Sheltered by the night
Red in tooth and red in claw

So look at you look at me
All because we need to know
So look at me look at you
All because we’ll never know

So look at you look at me
All because we need to know
So look at me look at you
All because we’ll never know

Hunger – Of Monsters and Men

You are right, I’ll move on
But my lungs feel so small
I couldn’t breathe if I tried
I lay my head on the floor
My beating heart wanted more
But I’ll keep it in and keep you out

I’m drowning, I’m drowning
I’m drowning, I’m drowning

But for the longest time I knew
There was nothing left for us to do
But I tried, oh, I try
And in this quiet company
There is nothing staring back at me
I’m in need of the sound

[Chorus:]
Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn’t you
Voices disappear when you are speaking, in somber tunes
I will be the wolf and when you’re starving, you’ll need it too
Hungry for the kill, but this hunger, it isn’t you
It isn’t you, it isn’t

Let me go cause you are just a shade
Of what I am, not what I’ll be
But in this quiet company
I forget sometimes just how to breathe
Fill my lungs with the sound

[Chorus]

I’m drowning, I’m drowning
I’m drowning, I’m drowning
I’m drowning, I’m drowning
I’m drowning, I’m drowning
