lyrics

It came one day
Out of the bog grew the ghoules of my conscious
Whisked away
Far from the life in my youth I expected

Where I go is so devoid of love
barely keep my head up above in the sea of hesitation

It yearns to stay
Fast in my mind with impaired locomotion
Keeps me this way
Keeps me this way
All of the faults and the fractures I sustained

Maybe I will come around
Despite hereditary hand-me-downs
Chained and shackle bound
Skewered by a rusty hook and thread
I'm sinking even deeper than dread
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation

Wildfires sweeping across the plains
Black sludge bleeding out from my veins
Hot tears falling like acid rain
Brand new blood surging through my brain

The wool you pulled over my eyes
Knit tight
Embroidered with paradise
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation
In the sea of hesitation

about

The Ruffled Feathers Vancouver, British Columbia

Taking inspiration from the likes of Beirut, The Arcade Fire, and Belle and Sebastian, the band weaves fables of revolution, love stories, and cities away from home. Listeners expecting conventional guitar-driven indie-pop will find themselves swept into complex arrangements of trumpets and mandolins instead. ... more
