H8 4ST LA MER swagger across all the dark genres with elegance and devastating ease. One second a brutal monster, the next a beautiful goth.
Another masterclass. Favorite track: Funeral.

Funeral 06:24
You know we built our houses Where we were burning bodies The ground still remembers The ground is still bloody So if there's an above And this is below Then surely we can sink no further And there's nowhere else to go The stench of death was always here As far as I recall As were the sounds devoid of pleasure Words laced with vitriol Between now and then Between us and them Never will you see Men and angels breaking bread As above, so below Spent is thy litany Hate thy neighbour Shake his hand and strike him dead Weep in fear and wonderment Of what you have become A superman, a God on earth Can't be others 'til there's one Weep in fear and wonderment Of what you have become A superman and death itself Can't be others 'til there's one It'd take more than a few men To put out the word But they're of little potential Men fall down and they fold I call upon my memories now But some seem to have departed What I used to know is but a blur I guess it mattered when it mattered You know we built our houses Where we were burning bodies The ground remembers The ground is still bloody You're excused, but not forgiven For whatever is past and done For when you couldn't commit This is a funeral This is a funeral This is a funeral

Be The Ghost 04:12
We're flaws and dreams of our fathers We're made from little parts of others Divorce the heart and the beating Hold your breath, be taller Be the ghost amongst the living And my heart parts These hands, they cannot protect me And my tongue coils The terrors are coming to take me And I'm alone no matter what No matter who holds my hand But when I drown I wish the weight wasn't there Its easier to go this way, I swear Its easier for you to forget I was here The sun is not a god, it too is dying I'm not the only one that's sick of fighting I'll share my grave with "rest" of the living And silence will bring us back to the beginning Oh, how can I sleep knowing what's coming? Knowing what's coming Oh, how can I sleep knowing what's coming? Knowing what's coming

Control 03:05
Who will be here when its over? See the doom and pull me closer? No, you don't love me, you never have And look how tall I've grown without your love In endless darkness, we could float together But you're not ready to be gone forever No, you don't love me, you never have And look how tall I've grown without your love You keep your face You keep control Negotiate before you sell your soul And you will live If you don't let go The past is just a hole You can't fall in if you grow As long as I am with you Expect trouble As long as I am with you Expect to pay double As long as I am with you Expect trouble As long as I am with you Expect to pay double

Ghost Garden 04:42
If the sun does dare to turn its face away I will lend my voice to darkness If I'm exiled from the light of the day I'll walk the night with the assassins In this world Where we are lords We tend to forget That death is God And only death knows its reasons Queen mother, pure and free I'm only leaving dirt behind Enough to bury me I've little time to spare But a minute to decide To taste the sweetness of the air Or gaze into the other side And the touch of the sun Fails to arouse me I trap my shadow in doorways To leave it behind me I laugh, blackout drunk, bleeding out In serendipity For I smiled upon abyss And abyss smiled back at me I'm coming home I now know Those who are leaving Shed all the weight They won't be needing But if I go to war If I go today No-one here will love this garden Oh, if I go to war If I go today Keep your given word Tend to my grave If I go to war If I go to war I'm coming home I'm coming home And the touch of the sun Fails to arouse me I trap my shadow in doorways To leave it behind me I laugh, blackout drunk, bleeding out In serendipity For I smiled upon abyss And abyss smiled back at me I'm coming home

Out Of Reach 03:05
Oh sweet oblivion, kind to my memory There's nothing left in this cruel world for you and for me All I wanted to be Is dead and out of reach Oh isn't it something? The crown I never claimed The splendour never won Oh my sweet girl, will you remember me when I am gone? All I wanted to be Is dead and out of reach Oh isn't it something? All I wanted to be Is dead and out of reach Oh isn't it something? All I wanted to be Is dead and out of reach Oh isn't it something?
