Every Time I Die - Pelican Of The Desert Lyrics



Server the nerve
The skin
The scale
Gather your bones from beyond the pale
Come out of the wild and into the world
Burn all the books
Put out your eyes
Lower your sword the end is nigh
Sink through the pinewood and into the dirt
Out of your body and into the sky
Out of your body and into the sky

Give in
Voices will carry us
Turn around.
Find your way back to the start.

Love is the way
Love is the only way
Love is the only way out

Love is the way
Love is the only way
Love is the only way out

Don't freeze up in the headlights
Welcome it in
Walk through the storm to the eye
The birth will be calm
The birth will be quiet
But the dark had such long arms
Pulling me down
Sliding back into my head
Where all of it is thought without awareness
Where there is no foresight only pertinence
I could scratch at the door
But I will never get in

So I rise above or I sink below
So I rise above or I sink below
Either way I am false
At the center is all

I tripped up at the breakthrough
I was scared to die
So the gate locked
The light vanished
Now where am I?
I was startled by the great height
I doubted my heart
Now the wine turns to water
I am coming apart

    The beginning.... "This isn't at all..unpleasant!"

  7. Grim

    This is the best song ETID has ever made in my opinion. 0:31 and 1:31 are just too fucking good. Holy shit.

  8. wrngsurgeon

    they're kind of the best band ever.

  9. Emanuel Muresan

    Psalms 102:1-6 KJV

    Hear my prayer, O Lord , and let my cry come unto thee. Hide not thy face from me in the day when I am in trouble; incline thine ear unto me: in the day when I call answer me speedily. For my days are consumed like smoke, and my bones are burned as an hearth. My heart is smitten, and withered like grass; so that I forget to eat my bread. By reason of the voice of my groaning my bones cleave to my skin. I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert.

    Why is this title from psalm 102?
    I goggle pelican of the wilderness and this came up

  10. selfatrophy

    1:35 such a satisfyingly groovy end to this song! 

  11. DaddyFatherDad

    I will probably get shit on for this, but I am going to compare Every Time I Die, to (my favorite band) The Devil Wears Prada. only because that they have multiple albums that either clearly showed progression, or sounds totally different than the last. Gotta love bands that continue to improve and change up the sound!

    DaddyFatherDad

    been listening to Miss May I for a VERY long time. and recently got into parkway drive because my other favorite band is August Burns Red they are the greatest

  12. AzCannibalChris

    Definitely my favorite track.

  13. Vinny Vee 613

    This song is wikkid, I guess two clowns that hit the dislike button didn't get it n fucked up

  14. Micheline Beluse

    lyrics would be helpful ....love the music.

    BluzCat

    Look 'em up! Easy to understand; just fix up a massive speedball OD and listen with it turned up to 11...

  15. River Tennant

    im very pleased with this album. very. 

  16. Lode Van Goubergen

    Wow, this is awesome. This song reminds me so much of Converge but in a good way. Both are my favourite hardcore bands.

  17. DeadPixel

    This one sounds like The Greenery

  18. Jared Fitch

    You can tell Kurt Ballou had a huge part in shaping this album. Every Time I Die through a Converge filter = fucking killer album. So happy.

    hortonhearsahunter

    My exact thoughts. Kurt has a habit of turning great bands into greater bands.  Mutoid Man is another killer band he produced. (Cave In / Converge)

    Jared Fitch

    And as if ETID needed to be any better lol. They reached yet another level of quality.

    GhANeC

    @Jared Fitch Is that Andy on your profile image? lol

    Jared Fitch

    Yes indeed hahaha

  19. Alex W

    Old school ETID all over this beast! Yes!

  20. th3gr3at3st54

    All of these songs continue you to amaze me its like a mixture of last night in town,hot damn and ex lives its great

  21. LoadingScreenTips

    such a mosh pit record!! sick

  22. benbissonnetteutube

    Albums fuckin great but those songs.. lil too short

  23. Sean Masters

    How does etid still get better with every album!? It freakin blows my mind.

    Riley

    Because it's ETID. Duh!

    Sarsly

    @Atmentod7 Hot Damn! was better than both of those

    krager54

    @Sarsly Agreed. The only songs I truly love from The Big Dirty are are We'rewolf, INRIhab, and Rendez Voodoo. This album is fucking epic IMO

    sonofnothing

    @Sean Masters Burial Plot and Last Night are their 2 best albums IMO. Gritty, drity, heavy, raw and a bit less predictable

    AuthenticProphetic

    Nothing will ever compare to Last Night In Town

  24. Evan Neel

    This album is beyond ferocious! One of the few bands that can do no wrong.

    David

    yeah except the first album, which even they said was a 0. (or possibly a 2 I might remember wrong) vocal distortion = traaash. However I bow at the alter of keith and the boys as much as anyone. Most everything they do is off the charts.

    Tim Barham

    @David Allen I don't know, I kind of liked Last Night in Town. Some solid jams on there. 

    Mrs. Penley

    @Tim Barham I think he meant "Burial Plot Bidding War". It was an EP...and I would agree, not so great...but WOULD agree with you that last night in town is fantastic.

  25. Jeremy Miller

    Sounds like some Converge influence.

    Emirates Of Caligula

    Sometimes the master is preceded. I don't know who that is though haha

    deadletterdying

    It was actually produced and engineered too by Kurt Ballou, from Converge.

    MegaLuxury1

    @Alex Steffani Converge has been around since 1990, Kurt ballou is their guitar player, he produced the album so NO, converge has no ETID influence stop talking shit and leave drugs.

    kenny desmet

    @Jeremy Miller converge + the greenery and you have this

    Ryan Besco

    Coalesce. Hence Sean Ingram doing vocals.

  26. Brett Crawford

    Is that Sean Ingram?

    Austin Scarbel

    yea dude

    Andrew Hittle

    Fuck yes! His screams are the shit! Never thought I'd hear something quite as epic as Keith and Sean Ingram

    Geoff Harkins

    FUCK I THOUGHT IT WAS!!!! THAT IS FANTASTIC
