lyrics

So came the day I figured out
That the last teardrop had dried in my throat
I could not deal with rage anymore
I could not rinse the lies that wasted my heart

What you spoiled is lost forever
Who you drowned now drifts forever

Sinking
Drowning

I left your delusions on the shore
Without a single bitter look behind
Pulled all my love out like a slough
Said ‘adieu’ to hostile terra firma

What you spoiled is lost forever
Who you drowned now drifts forever

As I sink
Deeper
And deeper

The current flows
Stronger
And stronger

(Deeper)
(Stronger)

But I feel fine
For the first time in my life
As nitrogen narcosis
Casts a cold smile on my face

Yeah I feel fine
Dead drunk in a liquid dream
Rehydrated, so quiet :
I don’t fear death anymore

I don’t fear its depths
I don’t fear its blue
I don’t fear its waves
I don’t fear
Death

I reach the bottom of the sea
Infinite land of gloom and silence
Between tyrian purple candelabra
Fearsome shadows of rusted wrecks
Ivory shells shimmer

Under a dreary shroud of silt
Misshapen beings quiver
And constrict me
As water fills my lungs

Sinking
Drowning

Half-covered with slimy seaweed
My bones are merged with sharp coral reef
I’d like to spell some human words
But moray eels ripped my mouth into strips

My dislocated jaws seem to sing:

‘What you spoiled is lost forever
Who you drowned now drifts forever’

As I sink
Deeper
And deeper

The current flows
Stronger
And stronger

Resilient is French duo Erdh’s first studio release.

Resilient is a series of seven tracks which read as so many mazes, structure shifts, meandering paths, ebbing and flowing and will surprise, puzzle and captivate you.
