This is the lament of the last inhabitant - tortured, oppressed, maltreated by a creature that shares his place - a demon which enjoys it to have a trapped victim.
Once the world grew cold
The old days, I have forgotten them
My life, it all was sold
When tomb-like night fell over me
Since then no light entered my soul
Only the beast's howl filled the dark
It held me as its living gold
Lonely my lasting being bowed
This message goes to my buried heart:
At one time you were my dearest part
I am longing for thee
For you were taken away from me
Now the only way is to find peace
There's one place left to seek:
But yes, I still have the will to be
Like a mortal man approaching death
But then, why won't it let me?
Why can I never see the sun?
"Curse These Metal Hands" parlays the UK bands' chemistry into a record which—for all its tinnitus-inducing ferocity and elegiac arrangements—practically drips with transcendent joy. Bandcamp Album of the Day Aug 18, 2019
