Future Islands - Swept Inside Lyrics




By the shattered coils of another's arms
And swept inside like the rains that weep
That fell away when your girlish charms
Cried out to take on motherhood
She waits by the windowsill
All wrapped in white and puzzling
What happened to the child inside
Who ran the streets in the days at night

She says nothing seems the same
And I can't change a thing
Her body's like a wave
Breaking to the sea
She says everything seems strange
Locked behind the years
But life is ours to find
In the days at night

There passes a stranger every eve
Who walks himself on a silver leash
And in his head the world's asleep
Awakens in his hands believed
When he was young
He had a dream
To be a star on the movie screen
But now it all seems a silly lie
As he walks alone in the days on fire

He says nothing seems the same
And I can't feel a thing
My body's like a wave
Caving in on me
He says everything seems strange
Holding back the tears
And he smiles just like a child
In the days at night

Mother, of song
You'll find the right way to cherish, in dreams,
All of the snow frozen
Father, in time
You'll find a world that's so perfect and cold
All of the snow frozen

Mother, of song
You'll find the right way to cherish, in dreams,
All of the snow frozen
Father, in time
You'll find a world that's so perfect and cold
All of the snow frozen

Mother, of song
You'll find the right way to cherish, in dreams,
All of the snow frozen
Father, in time
You'll find a world that's so perfect and cold
All of the snow frozen

Mother, of song
You'll find the right way to cherish, in dreams,
All of the snow frozen
Father, in time
You'll find a world that's so perfect and cold
All of the snow frozen

    No other song has ever touched me like this one. Samuel's lyrics express a pain and fear of life that can only be truly expressed through song.

  8. Arun

    came here from the company men

  9. DG87

    Fucking love the bass in this song.

  10. Kristian Stanley

    i've liked Future Islands for a while now but yes, Fear The Walking Dead brought me to this particular song lol

  11. heliopolis29

    Their genius synth and bass is something else. Love, love, love em

  12. Thabiso Mkhwanazi

    And he smiles just like a child
    In the days at night...

  13. Keisy Werner

    A primeira vez que ouvi essa musica foi assistindo fear the walking dead eu fiquei impressionada e amei ainda mais a série. <3

  14. Amanda Laggan

    Everything about this song reminds me of New Order. Even down to the abrupt bass at the end.

  15. trebreh sb

    I'm hear because of Fear the walking dead and this song sounds like New Order !! love it

  16. Richard longo

    Strand of Oak recommended this band.

  17. Cyril Sneer

    I was here long long before FTWD.... One of my fave bands.

  18. Greg Wittler

    Song Has a Definite Late 80's Dark Synth vibe to it.  I find more music from Walking Dead and Fear Of The Walking Dead than I do on the radio.

  19. Shane Imperial

    this song is so good it gave me goosebumps love it depeche mode / new order feel #FTWD

    bofursgun

    +Shane Imperial New Order sure, but Depeche Mode? Surely you jest.

    And you should be publicly flogged comparing New Oder in any way with Depeche Mode. Shame on you.

  20. Magicocentro

    joy division's style

    KeanosMagicHat1

    Magicocentro good shout - that guitar is definitely Joy Division like & as a Mancunian I'm loving it!

    photondance

    Oh man. IKR

  21. Ugly Casanova

    Sweet song. Thanks FTWD.

  22. Vinicius Cesar Fernandes

    Somebody with torrent for this album?

    Maester Gerwulf

    http://www.seedpeer.eu/details/9963935/Future-Islands---In-Evening-Air-2010-FLAC.html
    If you are unable to open .flac tell me and i'll suggest some music/video players.

    Vinicius Cesar Fernandes

    Thanks... I use Aimp and windows media player.

    Maester Gerwulf

    hmm, im not sure if they can run .flac . if theres a problem dont hesitate to ask.

    Vinicius Cesar Fernandes

    Yes, they can. AIMP is version 4 and is a great player with amazing features. WMP i use the default from Win10, before this version the Flac feature its no present.

    Thanks for link (downloading already) and sorry about my poor english. :-)

  23. A. Allen Renshaw Jr.

    FTWD that guitar and the vocal delivery. Pure New Order :) Great tune.

  24. I Troll Idiots

    Fear the Walking Dead brought me here. Sounds like New Order

    Luis Diaz Rodriguez

    I thought I was the only one!

    Angel I.

    As a matter of fact the dark synths & bouncing bass sound pays tribute to Joy Division (if you didn't know New Order is Joy Division after lead singer Ian Curtis took his own life)

    The Destroyer of all Libtards

    I Troll Idiots which episode in season 2?

    Kristian Stanley

    New Order and Joy Division are distinctly different. this is definitely more New Order.

    Alan Cam

    Amazing cross between both New Order and Joy Division. The music sounds as much as is possible to sound like a crossover point between the 2 bands without actually being them.

  25. pai chu

    fear the walking dead!

  26. Bryan Corkins

    Here from Fear The Walking Dead :)

  27. John Cena

    Fear The Walking Dead !!!

  28. Its_Kianna

    Thanks Slide for bringing me here

  29. Mayra Cernas

    No entiendo por qué no estaban en mi vida!

    Baltazar Bächli

    +Mayra Cernas pienso lo mismo.. talvez no estabamos listos ;D

  30. Mr Leon

    New order?

    KeanosMagicHat1

    Mr Leon or perhaps as someone said above - their previous incarnation, Joy Division

  31. M. Eugenia La Rocca

    Temazo!

  32. lisarabesk

    Reminds me of Modest Mouse! The voice!

  33. Thomas Hutchings

    Every album comes with a free bottle of Prozac!

  34. Marijan Vidovic

    love this song.. over and over

  35. Mich VR

    There's an acapella version here /watch?v=Y-qLw2dsmNA where you can also hear him speak.

    Hambubger

    Is there a version without the vocal?

  36. DICKSQUAAD

    Reminds me of the Franz Ferdinand cover of "All My Friends", which is also a fucking great song.

  37. DaddyTubo

    Sounds like an homage to New Order. The guitar and drum beat is reminiscent of Age of Consent. I too,heard this during the intro to Company Men, and thought, "which New Order song is that?!?"

    Magicocentro

    yeah it sounds like new order joy division

  38. P Verburg

    fantastic song. It took me a while to find it after hearing a part of it in the company men. Glad i found it, because it made me listen to more Future islands music. Inspiring band!!

  39. Kayla Myres

    SLiDE brought me here and I love it ... 3

  40. Guilherme Steckelberg
