Company Of Thieves - Past The Sleep Lyrics




Across the ocean
Under the sand
That got in your wounds
Across the ocean
Under the land
That you now consume

There sleeps a demon
It wakes at night by the light of the moon
And its watching while you sleep
While you sit and dream
Of all the people laughing
Picking up the shells
Too concerned with suntans
Nobody can tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On seashores and sailors can tell they'll never tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they'll never tell

Across the ocean
Under the water that got in your lungs
There sleeps a demon
It knows exactly what you will become

And it's watching while you sleep
While you sit and dream
Of all the people laughing
Picking up the shells
Too concerned with suntans
Nobody can tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On Seashores and sailors can tell they'll never
Tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they'll never tell

While you're dreaming at the sea...

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells
On Seashores and sailors can tell they'll never
Tell to their maidens and babies
Tales that they'll never tell

They end up empty, wanting, wandering
Hollow like their shells

Company Of Thieves Past The Sleep Comments
  1. Stef Blache

    And to know I discovered them in 2018.... Like... where the fuck was I? Awesomeness.

  2. edwin jeovani santos cuellar

    con esta portada los conocí en una vieja revista ...

  3. Andrew Wolff

    Saw these guys open for the Hold Steady in SLC in 2011. Genevieve was so good words fall short. The band was tight, which happens when you are playing 200+ dates a year, and she stood on that platform and just blew the room up. I've seen jazz and r&b singers with more range and variable timbre, Jasmine Sullivan and Diane Reeves to name two. I have never seen a more impressive lady in a rock show.

    I discovered this amazing group, just stumbling upon a list of great lead female rock bands.. they were number 3.. amazing.. they are really amazing..

  13. theCreator

    Love this song, they remind me of the Killers, where parts of the background instruments play a little louder than the vocals, then it dies down.. this is my new favorite.

  14. valgorlin
