The Straw Gods Dublin, Ireland

Hailing from Dublin’s Northside, The Straw Gods deliver their own brand of smokey, brooding Alt Rock cut with Eclectic PseudoPop. With their unique take on Blues, Rock, and Jazz, emphasising the darker, soulful elements of each, The Straw Gods have been garnering comparisons ranging from modern rock groups such as Radiohead and PJ Harvey to Trip Hop Artists such as Portishead. ... more

Track Name: Iron Lung
In your head, in your head, has the river been severed from ocean.
I wouldn’t know, whats carried out on your tide.

In your head, can you hear, when i sing in your ear, of devotion.
I'm a slave to the song, it’s the only thin stirring inside

when you fell, all of heaven, fell from me.
We live on, to embrace this alchemy.

Can you see, when you dream, are there pictures of me in your tower.
Do i live on, a vision that waits by your side.

And the life that you knew, is it haunting your waking hours.
Im a ghost, your a ghost, so we’re always and never alone, yea.

when you fell, all of heaven, fell from me.
We live on, to embrace this alchemy.
so I live on, to keep your good company.
all but love, all but love is lost to me. (Yea)

Love is the drug and I love you too much to get sober oh,
iron lung, I didn’t know, how to love, letting go, of her.
And I love that I love, but its never enough,
to get over you,
In your iron lung, iron lung, your my iron lover.
I didn’t know, know I can never atone,
cause it cost too much
I am alone, I am alone, though our love isn’t over.
And so I take flight, running for cold of your touch, to get closer oh,
iron lung, iron lung, your my iron lover.
Track Name: My Love is All
Your time is done, this your tale is told.

Decide on life, this lie of love.

Give up your sins, your devil soul,

the night is cruel and black as coal.

Yea, give up your devil soul, can you hear it now,

my love, is all.

In fading light, our (phantoms) minds will roam.

the darkness glows, so full of form.

A fleeting glimpse of the unknown,

ignites our eyes, our souls reborn.

And so we seek our precious gold,

a final state, our final goal.

And near the end, the truth is shown,

the visions found, the child has sewn.
