Rolo Tomassi - Opalescent Lyrics




No measured mark of wit, wisdom or rhetoric could solve this
Too fractured to endear, bonds broken beyond view
With all roads leading here, fettered by an endless blue

But I held the arrows, I pulled the strings
And bottled messages never to be seen
But I held the arrows, I pulled the strings

In fits and starts it can blossom and bloom
But I held the arrows, I pulled the strings
In fits and starts it can blossom and bloom
The shot at the moon still falls short of the stars

Rolo Tomassi Opalescent Comments
  1. Carlos3Zone

    My soul is vibrating.

  2. biancabluzuzu

    Beautiful and talented, intelligent and dark . But they let the light in as well. Genius .

  3. griiseknoen

    I just discovered this band.
    The good thing about being late to the party is that you are immediately given an entire amazing back catalogue to check out too.  
    This is fucking great!

  4. ninjahaven13

    Her voice is pretty. Even her screamo voice is pretty

  5. Casper317

    damn, I love this intro.

  6. Даниил Добровольский

    Sad, i couldn't get ticket on the gig in russia

  7. Jacqueline Bellerose

    This was a better album than Time will die but time will die is still a very good album, they peaked with this sound on grievances.

  8. Maco5555

    This is fucking sick. Saw them in Pittsburgh, PA USA last year two days after Christmas. They fucking killed it!

  9. faultfinder9

    Tremenda banda, la verdad el metal clásico y los "true" me parece que son un fósil viviente, además, es un poco ridículo que unos viejitos sigan hablando de satán y otras tonterías...como dijo Varg vikernes: 'WTF is "true" anyhow?...true idiot perhaps'

  10. Atom Caleb

    I love the dichotomy of people wondering why Eva doesn't scream in this song, and people who want more songs where she doesn't scream. I just love Rolo, let them do their thing.

    Ty Steger

    LOL I do want her to scream in this song but It is beautiful and just fine in it's own right. Something about it though I just want her to open up and rage but I can't put my finger on it.

  11. Matt Allen

    masterpiece

  12. WATCHMAN

    The instrumentals are awesome, but honestly i didn't like the singing, i was expecting some screams, but the atmosphere is cool... good job

  13. Cursed Chris

    This is truly remarkable. I had no idea this band existed before Thursday night.

  14. dvg1985

    Fuck. This is awesome

  15. theHiddenCreature

    really underrated band, I think its because they based out of the UK. I cant wait for the new album

    OuroborosWorm

    What do you mean? They're underrated in your country, because they're from another a different country?

  16. skramz kid

    Where are the screams?

  17. Sulivan Silva

    I am seriously thinking about stealing that intro

  18. nekozepam

    She has such a beautiful voice. Why she doesn't sing like that in most their songs?

  19. Andrew Earnshaw

    0:00-0:36 The dark jazz vibe I get from this section is gorgeous, wish it was longer.

    Sulivan Silva

    Exactly same here dude

    maxwelld23

    Thought it was just right 👍

  20. tadhg3

    This is an incredible transition from Party Wounds, haven't listened to this band in almost a decade! Lovely

  21. LouderThanQuiet

    Why are the views so low?

    Chrissy Nicola

    Chrissy Nicola

    @MrCloop The Third so how boit this STFU, you understand this you lame ass troll, what you said had nothing to do with the band so jus shut the fuck up!

    tforal2

  22. NoJoshinJoshy

    Party Smasher Inc. brought me here after watching an interview.
    So very thankful!

  23. BJ Scarberry

  24. TheJeffum

    Seab The Vortian

    It's more *blackgaze* than black metal tho.

  25. thomaserak7

    wow only the siblings left from the original line up, why would you want to leave such an amazing band

  26. Alex Crawford

    dat beginning, sooo fucking tasty!

  27. Don Boscorelli

    Grievances is the best album of the year by a huge margin, and might be one of the best metal albums of the decade.

    TEZ OF GILEAD!

    Not even close,are you mad,lmao.

    TheHeaveHoe

    Nothing beats Hysterics

    Don Boscorelli

    I'm sorry you're accustomed to being wrong.

    Theo Robinson

    And 'Time Will Die..' is sounding like they've done it again!!

    Anthony James

    @CrewofMaltby Thanks for posting the lyrics! Lol sometimes its hard to understand Rolo Tomassi's lyrics but Eva seems to really love Aesop's Fables and Greek Mythology! She wrote her own little fable here

    CrewofMaltby

    @Anthony James Most of their songs are on Dark Lyrics. I've been listening a lot, so I sent this album into them after listening and reading the booklet a couple of times.

  29. Adroc Cliptovian

    . wow. wow. wow.  
    Phenomenal!

  30. Don Boscorelli

    Oh god yes, I'm so hype for this album.

  31. DaveDilly

    Well that was totally fresh and amazing......
    Holy ducks.
    Big ups.
