Hundred Waters - Thistle Lyrics

When I ran to you
Expecting open arms and warm tea
I got sour rind and sop
When I ambled toward you
Bridging bramble toward the sea
I stuck only in the stubble

The thistle by the barn
Rallies its barbs like swords
From arid land not wicked, but dry

When I wanted lift, I got stone
When I wanted rest, I got din
When I wanted cheer, I got cap
When I wanted shade, I got cast
When I wanted drink, I got dust
When I wanted warmth, I got soot
When I wanted food, I got swill
When I wanted wool, I got thorns

    It will be interesting to see them when they come to Metropolis Montreal - should be fun.

  15. stegokitty

    It's like Björk & Fleet Foxes had a baby.

    Gabrielle Lopez

    perfect description

  16. AeonsOfFrost

    Little Tybee sent me. This is great stuff guys.

  17. asuna

    what type of genre is this? anyone help?

    Barry McCockiner

    Some people call it folktronica for its very organic sound yet use of electronic ambiance & such. I just call it straight experimental electronic and amass it w/ artists like Glasser or Ramona Lisa.


    don't worry about it

  18. Jenna Brown

    I spaced half in the video since its 12 am an getting tired and focused and saw a horse have a house in its stomach and running like fuck and its so weird but I didn't except this at all this is amazing .this is gonna be a great band!

  19. Vide0Head

    Was this directed by Michel Gondry? 

    Daniel Cecil

    Martin Allais!

  20. DerbJd

    One of the best IDM / glitch pop tunes for a long time!  I love the 6:8 time signature that flows in legato within itself. Mmmm mm!

  36. bigpimpdaddy69

    Reminds me of The Science Of Sleep and golden the pony boy. Very underrated film as well as trippy. I wish i could ride a horse made up of arts and crafts materials.

  37. lugnut33

    Saw them live a few weeks ago when they opened for Alt-J in Milwaukee and I really enjoyed them. Such a complex musical experience.

  50. Gabor Kovacs


  51. Pablo Horteg

    Yes reminds me of Bjork, but also Mew (because of the odd timings, lightness and unusual piano lines). Both great influences so I will have to explore this band more!
