Sounds Like Winter Sydney, Australia

Sounds Like Winter are that strange kid that sat in the corner at school and dreamt of better days. Isolation, despair and hope are covered in the subject matter, all the while seducing you with bass heavy, ice-cold grooves and razor like guitar licks. Let them take you to another place. ... more

Track Name: The Boneman - Sounds Like Winter
AS I LAY HERE AT NIGHT I FIND
MANY WAYS I COULD LOSE MY MIND
TAKE A WALK DOWN THE PATH LESS TROD
TO A PLACE WHERE I LOSE MY GOD
CAN I SOMEHOW RELAX AND SAVE
A LIFE ABOUT TO SLIP AWAY

WHEN THE BONEMAN COMES
YOU WILL SHAKE IN YOUR BONES
AND YOUR EYES SQUEEZED TIGHT
WHEN YOU'RE IN BED ALONE
THE COLD FINGERS CREEP
UP THE SIDE OF YOUR BED
AND THE COLD SWEAT FEAR BUILDS
UNTIL YOU ARE DEAD

A SHADOW FOLLOWS ME DOWN THE HALL
LIKE A STAIN ON THE BATHROOM WALL
A PALE MAN IN THE CORNER OF MY EYE
A FREEZING BREATH OR A LONELY SIGH
NOW THERE'S NOTHING ON EARTH TO SAVE
A LIFE ABOUT TO SLIP AWAY
Track Name: Porcelain - Sounds Like Winter
DROWNING IN A WARM EMBRACE
MY SENSES RISE IN A WAVE SO OVERWHELMING

I TOUCH YOUR FACE I KISS YOUR EYES
THE SCENT OF FLESH ALIVE TWO BODIES MERGING


YOUR SOUL IS PORCELAIN SAVE ME I'M FALLING IN
LOOK IN YOUR EYES I CANNOT DISGUISE
I'M HELPLESS AS A CALLOW INFANT

YOUR SOUL IS PORCELAIN MY OWN IS BLACK AS SIN
HEART FULL OF LIES I CANNOT DISGUISE
I'M HELPLESS AS A CALLOW INFANT

DROWNING IN A WARM EMBRACE
MY SKINS ALIVE YOUR HANDS YOUR TOUCH ELECTRIC

PORCELAIN, SO SHARP IT CUTS MY SKIN
AND NOW IT BREAKS WE DIE TWO BODIES BLEEDING
Track Name: Ishmael's Bones - Sounds Like Winter
He scanned the horizon and he said with a smile
You see that boy? I’m going to map out every mile.
Then he rolled up his sleeves and fastened his boots
And every beast of burden knew just what they had to do.

Everybody’s got their urge to collide
With the men who would die over a matter of pride
So wave them off with flags and parades maybe then
Wait for the postcard, you’ll never see them again.

The Hunger, The Lice, The Cold and Disease
The Sodomy, The Dysentery, The Amputees
Heroic prose enunciates the plunder and the blunder
So hold the front page, it’s a voyage of wonder.

‘Perhaps we’ll have to winter here’ the rumour goes round
But how to camp upon the ever shifting ground?
So with his rickety voice and his eyes of blue
The cabin boys shin bones will become my stew.

The Hunger, The Lice, The Cold and Disease
The Sodomy, The Dysentery, The Amputees
Heroic prose enunciates the plunder and the blunder
So hold the front page, it’s a voyage of wonder.

Scurvied gums sup on the bones of the dead
Perhaps they ought have should have stuck to farming instead
So dream of home and hearth and let it never be said
That glory fills the belly like a barrel of bread.
Track Name: The Distance Between - Sounds Like Winter
WHENEVER YOU’RE HERE, WHENEVER YOUR HURT
AS OUR LOVE DISAPPEARS FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH
AND THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US SEEMS SO CLOSE
WHATEVER YOU SAY, WHATEVER YOU DO
I BELIEVE IT WAS FATE THAT BROUGHT ME TO YOU
AND THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US SEEMS SO CLOSE
WHENEVER WE FALL

STANDING WITH A KNIFE IN YOUR HAND
WHERE DO WE STAND
SCREAMING AT THE SKY FOR CONTROL
OH WHERE DO WE GO

WHEREVER WE FALL WHEREVER WE FEEL
BELIEVE WHAT YOU MUST FOR THE PAIN ISN’T REAL
AND THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US SEEMS SO CLOSE
WHATEVER ITS WORTH, WHATEVER WE SAY
IT’S THE ANSWER WE SEEK IN A TREACHEROUS WAY
AND THE DISTANCE BETWEEN US SEEMS SO FAR
FOREVER WE FALL
Track Name: Hollow - Sounds Like Winter
WORK ALL DAY, DEAD ALL NIGHT
WONDER HOW, I’M GONNA GET IT RIGHT
SOLD MY SOUL ANOTHER DAY
DEAD AGAIN ANOTHER NIGHT
WONDER HOW I’M GONNA GET IT RIGHT

LOST MY WAY, AND I LOST THE FIGHT
NOW I KNOW, I’LL NEVER GET IT RIGHT
SOLD MY SOUL ANOTHER DAY
DEAD AGAIN ANOTHER NIGHT
WONDER HOW I’LL GET IT RIGHT

HOLLOW HOLLOW HOLLOW
ANOTHER DAY ANOTHER NIGHT

HOLLOW HOLLOW HOLLOW, ANOTHER DAY YEAH

WORK ALL DAY, DEAD ALL NIGHT
WONDER HOW, I’M GONNA GET IT RIGHT
SOLD MY SOUL ANOTHER DAY
DEAD AGAIN ANOTHER NIGHT
WONDER HOW I’LL GET IT RIGHT

HOLLOW HOLLOW HOLLOW, ANOTHER DAY YEAH
Track Name: Sanity is Calling - Sounds Like Winter
ON MY WAY BACK HOME
THE STREETS ARE EMPTY
AND I AM ALL ALONE
BUT I'M LOST IN THE CROWD

HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT
THE CLOCKS WERE MELTING
THE SUN WAS WAY TOO BRIGHT
THEN THE CLOUDS CAME DOWN

I SEE THE LIGHTS GO OUT
I SEE THE WALLS COME DOWN
UPON US ALL

SUDDENLY I SEE
DISASTER IS LOOMING
CRUSHING US ALL

FOLLOW THE SOUND OF MY VOICE
SANITY IS CALLING
TO DROWN US ALL

LIFE GOES UP AND DOWN
IT'S LIKE A ROLLER COASTER
TOO FAR OFF THE GROUND
AND YOU CAN'T MAKE IT STOP

LAY IN BED AT NIGHT
MY MIND IS REELING
I'M HOLDING ON TOO TIGHT
I JUST WANT TO SLOW DOWN
Track Name: Black Caverns - Sounds Like Winter
UNDER THE STARS WE LAY THERE HAND IN HAND
HOLD ME CLOSE AND LET THE DARK WASH OVER ME
ITS COLD AS STONE YOU’LL NEVER TURN AWAY
FILL ME WITH HOPE A LOVE LOST IN ETERNITY

THIS IS HOW I SEE THE NATION, LIVING WITHOUT
SELF EXAMINATION, LOOKING OUT ON THE SAD AND
LONELY, NOW ENACT REJUVENATION
THIS IS THE WAY, THE WAY WE MOVE AGAIN
THIS IS THE WAY, WE CANNOT JUST, WE CANNOT JUST
PRETEND/BE FRIENDS

YOU SEND ME BACK TO DARKENED DAYS AGAIN
STARK REMINDER OF WHAT IT WAS YOU MEANT TO ME
YOUR EYES THEY FLICKER IN THE LIGHT AGAIN
THEY DANCE AWAY I MELT WITHIN YOUR EFFIGY
Track Name: Double Barrel Scorpio - Sounds Like Winter
WIN OR LOSE IT’S ALL THE SAME
DIG TIL IT HURTS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME
ALL FALL DOWN ALL FALL DOWN
ALL THE LADIES IN THE LOUNGE
SHARPEN THEIR DAGGERS AND TOPPLE CROWNS
ALL SO VAIN, WIN OR LOSE IT’S ALL THE SAME

ELEPHANT GUN AND THE VENTRICLES BURST
I SWEAR MY DEAR WELL I WASN’T TO KNOW
IT’S BUCKSHOT LOVE RIGHT TO THE CHEST
FLUNG TO THE GROUND BY THE DOUBLE BARREL SCORPIO

WIN OR LOSE IT’S ALL THE SAME
SCORPIO LOVE IT’S A VICIOUS GAME
ALL FALL DOWN ALL FALL DOWN
ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE TOWN
DISMISSIVE EYES JUDGMENTAL FROWNS
ALL SO VAIN, WIN OR LOSE IT’S ALL THE SAME
Track Name: Walk in Black - Sounds Like Winter
I FEEL IT ON MY LEFT HAND SIDE
BENEATH MY RIBS AND IN MY BELLY
TWO STEPS BACK BUT I'LL TAKE IT IN MY STRIDE
AND IF I TOLD YOU TWICE
I'M SURE YOU COULD BELIEVE ME

I DON'T WANNA SEE YOU WALK IN BLACK
STANDING ALL ALONE
IT'S OVER THIS SOULS ALL ALONE
I DON'T WANNA SEE YOU WALK IN BLACK
STANDING ON YOUR OWN
IT'S OVER THIS SOULS ALL I KNOW

IT FLOWS LIKE THE TIDE WITH THE WEIGHT
OF THE SEA
FOAMING AS IT RECEDES THEN RIPPLING
BACK AGAIN
CAN WE FOLD THE PAGE ON ANOTHER DREARY DAY?
MY RUIN SITS CHILLED IN A FRIDGE DOOR RATTLING

SO CLENCH YOUR FISTS AND GRIND YOUR TEETH
ARTHRITIC STANCE, YOUR FRAME BENT DOUBLE
RED EYED SHAKES AS THE RADIO BLEEDS
AND AT A TIME LIKE THIS, IT'S FAINTLY EVANGELICAL
Track Name: You Fell For it - Sounds Like Winter
HAD IT ALL YOU WANTED MORE
BUT YOU WERE FAR TOO SAD
END WAS NEAR YOU THOUGHT I WOULDN'T
LEAVE YOU HIGH AND DRY

HAD IT ALL YOU WANTED MORE BUT WITH
NO COMPROMISE
IN THE END I HAD NO CHOICE
BUT TO STAND AND SEE YOU CRY

VOICES FAR TOO HEATED FEELINGS
ARE BEING TORN ASIDE
FEELING THAT YOU NEEDED FORCING
BRINGS THAT DEEP DIVIDE

LEAVING YOU JUST WASN'T EASY
TOR ME UP INSIDE
SEEING HOW YOU WERE NOT COPING
PLEASE JUST STAND ASIDE

AND I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU FALLING
FOR THAT OLD TRICK AGAIN
I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU FALLING
AND I DON'T WANT TO HEAR YOU CALLING
YOU FELL FOR IT AGAIN
I DON'T WANT TO SEE YOU FALL
Track Name: Sounds Like Winter - Sounds Like Winter
YOU KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE WINTER
WHEN THE COLD GETS IN YOUR BONES
THE COLOUR OF THE SUNLIGHT IN MUTED HUES AND TONES
THE SLOWING OF YOUR HEARTBEAT
WHEN YOU KNOW ITS NEAR THE END
WHEN YOUR BREATH ESCAPES WITH A SIGH
WHEN YOU KNOW YOU'VE LOST A FRIEND

ALL I WANTED
YOU HERE NOW
NOW I'M ON MY OWN
JUST NEED YOU HERE NOW

YOU KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE WINTER
WHEN YOU DIDN'T STAND A CHANCE
WHEN THE DRUMBEAT OF YOUR FAVOURITE SONG
CAN NO LONGER MAKE YOU DANCE

WHEN YOU DROWN YOURSELF IN VICES
THAT ONLY MAKE THINGS WORSE
YOU KNOW IT SOUNDS LIKE WINTER
WHEN THE WIND WHISPERS A CURSE
