lyrics

You don't need to tiptoe.
Don't stop to read epitaphs.
You know where you came from,
But this isn't such simple math.

The longer you linger,
The more it repeats.
These hands want to clutch you,
And wrap you up with ribbons and shiny things all for safekeeping.

There are cold hands coming out of the ground.
They're trying to slow you down, trying to drag you down.
There are cold hands coming out of the ground.
They're trying to slow you down, trying to drag you down.

They want to hold you and dress you the way that they know you.
They're dying and trying to imprint themselves on you.
They want you to be like you were when they knew you.
Now you're tattered and torn, and they've left you all bruised.

Bruised. They've left you all bruised.

You're changing, but they know you by heart.
They don't see. They don't see you.
And you can't stay. No, you can't stay.
No, you can't stay. No, you can't stay.

'Cause there's cold hands coming out of the ground.
They're trying to slow you down, trying to drag you down.
There are cold hands coming out of the ground.
They're trying to slow you down, trying to drag you down.

Ocean Leaves Brisbane, Australia

Ocean Leaves are a rag-tag collection of Brisbane multi-instrumentalists headed up by Canadian import Timothy Poitras. They play in the vicinity of indie folk, but they've evolved beyond “dude with an acoustic guitar sings about his feelings”, layering a string section, banjo, horns and even the occasional accordion into a rich, emotive sound that's best heard live. ... more
