about

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: Under a Sun
Under A Sun

Verse
Pale glow, of a harsh light,
shines on me.
This cold,
embraces me.

This totum,
i've made of me,
promises hope,
while loathing me.

Chorus
Control, your eyes.
Compose, you soul,
in another's eyes.

Dispose, of past lives,
stains show, so tear it all apart,
and bury it in stone,
to die.

Verse
Half lies, from your lips,
cut through me;
a thousand eyes
assailing me.

In your court, many hands,
play cruelly.
What sport, ohh,
could this be?

Chorus

Bridge
Here I've been this endless time,
here to sin is not to shine.

I'm, laid low, by your tongue with a thousand lies.

And I miss the cloak of night,
leaden whispers fill the light.
I'm, laid low, under a sun with a thousand eyes.

Pale glow, of a harsh light,
shines on me.
Track Name: Pictures of You
Pictures of you

Verse

Sitting in a darkening room,
holding all my love for you, for you.

When everything is tearing at me,
somehow only you set me free, with you.

(and) When I come to face my fears,

is when I need to feel you near, to me.

When everyone is turning away,
the only thing I want to say, to you.


Chorus

All I want, all I needed was pictures of you,

what I want, all I needed was pictures of.

Chorus

Verse

When I come to face my fears,

is when I need to feel you near, to me.

When everyone is turning away,
the only thing I want to say, to you.

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Remember
Remember

Verse
So you say, this worlds not real, ooh-ooh,
with my eyes open wide.
Just a play, how could I feel so low,
like a hole in a hole.

Is it safe, bright, whole, would you know,
you say, only darkness can blind.
When I wake, rise, love, will I know,
its real, not a play of light.

Chorus
So clever,
does your truth have a power,
as it cuts does it sharpen,
remember

Remember,
here your coin holds no fortune,
here you speak as a shadow,
remember

Verse
If you knew, saw and believed, as I do,
with your eyes open wide,
and this truth, delivered on you, these woes,
could you turn and hide.

Could this faith blindfold what you know,
like a some cheap parlour trick.
Could you thread this tight-rope, could you hold
it close, as you heartbeat, (but),

Chorus
