Caveat: Buried Beds and Folktales

The song lyrics do not match the video, and at first, that bothered me. In the end, though, I decided I liked them. They have the same feel, I think. They are both based on folkloric elements or themes. Each has its separate story, and I'm not sure that it makes sense having put them together this way, but each story is interesting. There's a website.

What I'm listening to right now.

Buried Beds, "Children of the Sea."

Lyrics

A ship to shore, a girl a boy,
fastened golden pins of the sea.
Of fear, of rain, a tongue betrays,
wash your sins away and face the day.

All you children of the sea,
one single heart does beat
your chains will fall away.
Darkness grows when you’re alone,
but your mother lies below
she’ll lift you up electric blue and green.

Of men, of rage, a girl betrayed,
once a garden raised falls below.
One heart, one hand, will lift the land,
a crumbling tower falls into the sea.

All you children of the sea,
one single heart does beat
your chains will fall away.
Darkness grows when you’re alone,
but your mother lies below
she’ll lift you up electric blue and green.
