Agnes Obel - Island Of Doom Lyrics




Destiny made her way and found you in a room
They told me, they told me
To undo the rule of mind and body
And nature laughed away as their voices grew
They told me, they told me
Clean out the room and bury the body

But I know you with a heartbeat
So how does the night feel?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
But now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
But now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone

I haven't walked for days though I wanted to
You told me, you told me
For with every move, the feeling follows
In nature's empty face, I am of little use
You told me, you told me
I'm just another fool for the earth to swallow

But the road through most will lead you back
And I will be with you
For the road of your mind will eat you up
On your island of doom
Where the voices all have gathered up
To a choir of fools
But I know my mind will reach you there
And I will be with you

Oh, I know you with a heartbeat
So how does the night feel?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
And now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
And now it's gone, it's gone, it's gone
Why'd you wake me up today?
Why'd you wake me up today?
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out
When the lights fade out

One, two, three, four, five

  1. Graphoart7 - Victor FRITSCH

    Un voyage <3 thanks !

  2. Richie Singleton

    BBC radio 6 brought me here... thank you

  3. Archibald Chagadama

    Lord knows how much Agnes Obel music has helped me get through. I'm always ecstatic whenever a new track is out, better yet, waiting for this new album! Much respect!!

  4. Saâd Bk

    Sounds like shit

  5. Ring0fSaturn

    Agnes Obel has been on my radar for a couple years now, but more on the periphery. This track changed that dramatically. The piano is beautiful and somehow classical, in a structural sense, while the production employs technology for touches that are otherworldly. Agnes Obel will be in San Francisco at the Masonic with Dead Can Dance. I'm excited about the possibilities.

  6. magdalena dobosz

    Divine piece of work really OMG

  7. tbyjb

    Heroin music

    Good ol' Agnes.

    I LOVE YOU AGNES ❤️

  11. Xanaxdu1961

    I am so glad to have found her and Dark at the same time. They are a perfect pairing.

    AlphaMohid

    I'm obsessed with her song 'familiar'. All thanks to Dark🖤

  12. ShameR

    Cette femme dispose d'un esprit des plus élevés qui soit .

  13. Marlene N

    This is definitely going to be in season 3 of Dark. Maybe even in the series finale 💛 can totally see that happening

  14. MrHumanracin

    Can’t wait for the new album, please tour Australia in 2020

  15. Johnny4815162342

    Going to have this on repeat for a long time. Beautiful

  16. Rachel Boyce

    Myopia has such a great double meaning...nearsightedness.

  17. yeison rendon

    Can't wait to listen the whole album!

  18. Holly has entered the Chat

    It sounds like something my music teacher would play.

    (I'm not a hater I'm just saying. I love her songs still oof)

  19. Renzokuken Leneyoyo

    Sonic bliss... Already have tickets to see her in mexico city this coming May. Can hardly wait.

  20. Jeromy Stone

    I love ALL Agnes has accomplished thus far. However, I'm thinking this is going to be her best album EVER! GO TEAM OBEL!

  21. SirBede

    Angel songs 🧡

  22. Jake Perry

    Is this what you dream of, Agnes?

  23. Mary Stuart

    This song lacks a lot of what I’ve loved about her music...i feel like this just isn’t on the level of her older music, especially Aventine.

  24. MrAfromannetje

    What a fantastic artist

  25. JAS Nada

    There's a haunting that I love about this woman. It's so fantastical and great,

  26. Jeff H

    Awesome visuals in this video. I really feel an intense connection to the element of haunting beauty here.

    Some people love bright sunny days, but I prefer and feel a stronger connection to things that are dark, cold, still and blue.

  27. Red Fraggle

    Amazing song, love it.

  28. Diego Torres Vicente

    WHAT TOOK YOU SOOOOOOOO LONG AGNES????

  29. Marek Adamus

    see you at the March concert in Warsaw Agnes :)

  30. Jeff H

    Last week was one of the most depressing weeks of my life and I had just about given up hope.

    When I discovered you released a new song and started listening it triggered long forgotten emotions and I was then able to pull myself out of it

    I know it sounds really cheesy but I want you to know your music REALLY DOES have a profound effect on people like myself.

    I've listened to this song dozens of times and each time I fall more in love with it. I cant wait until the rest of the album.

  31. Jacob Chak

    Extreme Kate Bush Energy.

  32. Tomorrow We Live

    this is white culture

  33. Traumwanderer77

    111 people think they are in heaven and don't like it.

  34. S RG

    Love your work and this new song is just mesmerising. Looking forward to hearing you live

    Envoutant...

  46. tuddycakes

    Thank you Agnes. I cried listening to this song because 2 months ago a kindred spirit, a cat I had the privilege to know for 15 years died, I dug a grave in the backyard by the creek and laid her to rest. Your work is like a part of the universe reflecting on itself. -Nicholas (39, Minnesota)

  47. Teté Gomes

  53. chidinma Chizzy

    I love this😭😭😭 I'm sad and I need more sad song

  54. meverB

    Godt med nyt fra Agnes Obel, har lyttet nogle gange til denne, men mine favoritter er nu stadig; Mary, Familiar, The curse, Fuel to fire, cover af Close watch og Aventine :) Men den store drøm er nu et samarbejde mellem Agnes Obel og Ólafur Arnalds ;) Det ville være stort.

  55. Skelabela !

    Your music makes me feel like I’m in a different dimension

  56. Jøriik

    Nous attendons cet album avec impatience.
    Nous = 'la famille"
    Chacun des albums d'Agnes Obel est un nouvel électrochoc mystique.
    Cette beauté dont nous avons besoin...
    Merci.

  57. Gwendoline Fontanell

    Wherever I am when I listen to Agnes Obel I feel like home. Like if my soul has always known this voice. It is impossible to not connect myself to her songs.
    Hi from France

  89. nyukla13

    Why do you send me such sad songs about loss? I am coping with my situation. I will get through it. But YOUR pain hurts me deeply, sweet man. And I feel guilty for having taken so much joy from you. I could never have imagined the depths of your agony. How naive I was. I can only hope that the fog lifts and you will see your way to let the road lead you back to happiness. ❤️🦋

  90. Daniel Peralta

    and PLEASE COME TO BRAZIL 🇧🇷❤️

  91. Daniel Peralta

    Agnes Obel, always a pleasure to listen to! I really liked the way you used the voice distortion effect once again, it correborates even more to the spooky feel in the song.

  92. Forest VVoods

    cant wait for myopia love from south africa hope i can see you live one day

  93. brandon hamson

    Is anyone familiar with system 88, The mentalism/psychology trick. Agnes is definitely a transparent glass cube floating in a storm into a beam of light.

    Island Of Doom Lyrics:
    Destiny made her way and found you in a room,
    They told me, they told me:
    To undo the rule of mind and body,
    And nature laughed away as their voices grew.
    They told me, They told me:
    “Clean out the room and bury the body”.


    But I know you with a heartbeat
    So how does the night feel?
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    But now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone.
    But now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone.


    “Haven’t walked for days though I wanted to”
    You told me, you told me:
    “For with every move the feeling follows”,
    “In nature’s empty face, I am of little use”,
    You told me, you told me:
    “I’m just another fool for the earth to swallow”.


    But the road through mines will lead you back,
    and I will be with you
    Before the road of your mind will eat you up,
    on your island of doom
    Where the voices have all gathered up,
    to a choir of fools
    But I know my mind will reach you there,
    and I will be with you.


    Oh I know you with a heartbeat
    So how does the night feel?
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    When the lights fade out
    And now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone
    And now it’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone.
    Why you wake me up today?
    Why you wake me up today?
    One two three four five.

    wyatteno
