Wyrmwood This entire album sounds like it's saying goodbye through a waterfall of tears, but at no point does it lose an iota of eloquence. The poetry is gorgeously written, and delivered with emotion and range by Alethea Leventhals ethereal vocals. Combine that with some beautiful synth work, bells, string accentuations, and layered vocal harmonies, it makes this album a truly gorgeous work of art. Favorite track: Deathless.

Track Name: Final Hours
Though the night has its power
Beneath all is soft
And in these final hours
The skin just tears away like cloth
Track Name: Deathless
You’re going through hell
You have to keep going
There is more than this
We don’t get to choose
Who lives and who dies
But while we’re alive
I’m here beside you

I’m here beside you

Sleep now darling can you sleep
Another day will come
You’re still the one you were born to be
Sleep now darling can you sleep

Now that it’s gone
The nights move so slowly
And the days wear thin
But when it was hear
The hours fell softly
And the dark felt like home

They can take your body
They can hold you down
They can live like vultures in your dreams
They can’t take your life
If you just hold on
If you just stay here
If you could only

Sleep now darling can you sleep
Another day will come
You’re still the one you were born to be
Sleep now darling can you sleep

When I rise from the ashes
When I rise from the grave
I will be strong
I will be deathless

When I rise from the ashes
When I rise from the grave
I will be strong
I will be deathless
Track Name: World Turned Cold
You woke to find your world turned cold
The ones you loved were strangers
I can't go back, some nights I try
I know that I can't stay here

When your heart is filled with doubt
I'm coming around
I will hold you up when the world crashes down

You left behind your state of mind
You left behind your demons
The days are long and the nights are cold
When you can still see them

When your heart is filled with doubt
I'm coming around
I will hold you up when the world crashes down
Track Name: Elegy
I think I know how you felt when it left you
How your body burned and your hands shook

I think I know how you laid on your bed and dreamt of how the world could be so big

You swallowed hard when people asked you
You saw its shadows dance along the walls
In your sleep your arms reached out toward nothing at all

You’d wake in the night
To the ghost of its hands
Moving the air around you

You’d wake in the night
To the ghost of its hands
Beating the life through you

I think I, I think I know how it felt when it left you
Because it left me too
It left me too, it left me too

You swallowed hard when people asked you
You saw its shadows dance along the walls
In your sleep your arms reached out toward nothing at all
Track Name: Dark Places
I found you deep in dark places
Up against a wall
And I found you standing in shadows
With your eyes cold and full

We ran from the light
We lived in the night.

Don’t forget the times that we spent
In silence I’m lost in them.

I felt you reaching towards me
From so far away
I felt you moving through me
From another time and place

We ran from the light
We lived in the night.

I can hear you dreaming tonight.
I can feel you going to dark places.

We ran from the light
We live in the night.

Don’t forget the times that we spent
In silence I’m lost in them.

Don’t forget the times we spent in
Dark places I’m lost in them
Track Name: Limb From Limb
Coming to
And the room is getting dim
The world is getting smaller and the walls are closing in

Hold on
Until it rips you limb from limb
Then play dead
When it calls to you again

I tried this time to give up the ghost inside
Live in my dreams and memories of how easily I

Losing time
And the dark is drawing near
The things that I've been holding close have all but disappeared

Play along
Until it rips you limb from limb
Then go on
When the shadows call you in

I wanted tonight to drown all of the years that I

I know this height was not the fight of my life

I could sink into the ground
Fade into the floor
Slip into the crowd

I could sink into the ground
Fade into the floor
Slip into the crowd

Have you seen it lately
How the world is shrinking
How we've worn it down
To the bone
If I could do this over
I would change this ending
i would leave you alone

Leave you alone
Leave you alone
Track Name: Myriologues
When the days wear thin
You close your eyes
Return to a time
Before you were born

I know that I can’t change
What you see though I would
I turn the hours into days and
Hold on and wait

But I reached for you
When you were lost
In the dark, without trust
And though i lost your hand at the end
I tried to carry us.

When the world turns cold
You live in other times
You dream of other lives

But I reached for you
When you were lost
In the dark, without trust
And though i lost your hand at the end
I tried to carry us.

And I draw the power out of thin air
And I pull strength from the sky
And in the years to come (years behind)
I was there all this time

I was there all this time
I was there all this time
Track Name: Across The Line
I tried to catch your eye in a dream
I reached for your hand in a memory
i tried to hold you up when it got rough
I tried to make up for what you'd lost but it was never enough

The sadness that surrounds you in the middle of the night
Is the same sadness that swallowed me lying in the morning’s first light.

A distant voice across the line across the sea
Somehow the ways we try make you feel further from me
A tiny loss, a word I missed, a crackle in between
Somehow the ways we try make you feel further from me

You asked if I was afraid of disappearing
I was only ever afraid that you would disappear

A distant voice across the line across the sea
Somehow the ways we try make you feel further from me
A tiny loss, a word I missed, a crackle in between
Somehow the ways we try make you feel further from me

Somehow the ways we try make you feel further from me
