oceanic portals opening a bed of blue-green seaweed descending rays of sun.... halls of purple ivy ascending to the gardens a realm of understanding.... illuminate our sight-path that we may see the truth and leave this all behind.... and in your shining moment take comfort in the thought that one day we'll be dust .
2.
the storm that bent the oaks has come to set us free infinite as space is looming, stirring in the trees and as we fall beneath the rain the sky melts into the lake as sure as it will end with solitude it's cleansed and i am your destroyer the static dream is dead destitution in the vacuum, the seraphim remain to sanctify the arteries that drown us as they drain as the sun dissolves from our space in her arms, the angel's embrace the energy will bend return to earth again and i am your destroyer the static dream is dead

i tried to find the star the one you showed me all those times, I can't remember but now the sky's so dark and telescopes could never see that far... the sanctuaries that once shined are cinders on the ground memory's extinguished and there's nothing left here now silence of the oracles and gardens in the night these sheets of black and burial shrines are poison to my eyes... i tried to let it go relinquished in the embrace of the snow the twilight sky is dimmed earth to earth... it's coming to an end... the specter in the spiral staircase leading me straight down glowing dimly in the passages we found lost it to eternity, and everything is gone fallen silent in our final setting sun....

sanctuaries shine a cloak of greenery unconfined a morning in deep space moonset over dimming light rays tending to the vines stay so high a birthplace or a grave so haunting beyond the ships remains let it all return immersing only once the hydrous atmospheres collapse into you and when it all returns ascending to the sun solar winds and spirits pass right through you compass cracks in two empyreal radiance in lowlands bloom confluence of the skies eternities elapse at moonrise catherdral of the moth the shaded temples are so distant contorted roots unscathed light years shimmer in the passing waves let it all return immersing only once the hydrous atmospheres collapse into you and when it all returns ascending to the sun solar winds and spirits pass right through you

Auroras on the moons horizon Uneven waves distort the flames Communication lines are severed I've always wanted it this way The tides will cleanse me of the sorrow and this will be my final day.

about

In Arctic Sleep's third studio album, Keith D welcomes back co-founder and fellow riff-writer Mike Gussis and new drummer Nick Smalkowski in their latest slow-burner, "Earth To Earth." . This recording further demonstrates Arctic Sleep's signature sound of sluggish tempos, a super-heavy rythm section, down-tuned riffing, and whispery vocals all weaving a series of dynamics ranging from quiet, contemplative moments of introverted vulnerability to cosmic waves of absolute, monolithic loudness... all done with a keen sense for hooky melodies. With this release, the music reaches further beyond the constraints of any genre of heavy music, incorporating more acoustic arrangements, more psychedelic droning passages, and cello. As with Arctic Sleep's previous work, the ambiguous lyrical themes continue to be rich with imagery of nature and space, all hazed with a looming atmosphere of sweet sorrow.
