Knife 03:04 video
You put your knife in me You put your knife in me You put your knife in me This is something that should never have been You stood and watched me bleed Beneath the sacred tree As you put you knife in me My blood you wished the soil to feed I offered you my heart Like a fool, I let you tear it apart As you put your knife in me This is something that should never have been Lovers, ramblers, wanderers and fools This life’s a gift that’s given unto you Traitors hide in the most beautiful of forms As I die here, hear my song and be warned So you can put your knives in me You can put your knives in me You can put your knives in me But you’ll never ever ever be free You can put your knives in me You can put your knives in me You can put your knives in me But you’ll never ever ever be free This is something that should never have been...

On the deck of this old mess I felt her sweet caress I’d touch her hair, not a care She’d hold me to her breast Over here I lost my dear Down by the ocean shore I could not hold her from the cold Now she’s no more Old shipwreck, old shipwreck Down by the old shipwreck Old shipwreck, old shipwreck Down by the old shipwreck Over here I lost my dear Down by the ocean shore I could not hold her from the cold Now she’s no more Our sins among the winds Now they’re washed away She still rides among the tides I’ll be with her one day

AN OVERVIEW
by Shawn Haché

Two bold voices resounding from deep within the Pacific Northwest darkfolk zeitgeist amalgamate as one on “Crooked Headstone”, the collaborative album between British Columbia’s CROOKED MOUTH and Washington State’s HEADSTONE BRIGADE. For years, each project has toiled alone in a decaying genre, carving singular identities capable of breathing new life through masterful melodies and incredibly dense doses of poignancy.
Bend your ear to a headstrong integration of ethereal guitar driven ballads, forlorn sea shanties, and anthemic neofolk shadowed by ever-changing orchestrated layers. The call to adventure resounds through skilled songwriting, biting tales of restless disillusionment, and voices that adeptly blend as one. Together they shout across the sprawling, rolling gulf and call for a radical optimism desperately lacking in our soulless age.
Listen! Heed that distant call. Take to the seas with an inexorable craving for the unexplored and unclaimed. Scale peaks, explore valleys, and, most importantly, go within. Move ever onward!
