about

Carnival Of Souls London, UK

CARNIVAL OF SOULS is a British band. Inspired in equal measure by the dewy lushness of its countryside and the grimy splendour of its industrial heartlands, the group creates an urgent but spacey rock sound from guitar, synth, bass and drums; sad words and singalong choruses. The songs grow dark at times, but the simple joy of making music infects the audience like a summer cold. ... more

Track Name: The Solomon Clock
... and with the Solomon Clock tick-tocking next door
so hard to keep my head from swimming
took this road and I still don't know what for
why do I always leave it 'til the last minute ...

... keeping myself from calling you up
don't want to say how much I talked about you ...
... lost the thread. i turned around and stopped.
when will I ever say the things I always meant to
say

I may as well be underground
it's so hard to breathe
I can't get to sleep
yeah so much for dreams

setting my watch by the Solomon Clock
standing in the doorway of my grandfather's hallway
it wont let me be ...
... and when the child gets up
and the pendulum stops
I'll step back on the road that has always been calling me
so much for dreams ...

so much for dreams
Track Name: Vessel
home
I'm taking you home
sit up on my shoulders
until you get older
I'll take you home

fine yes it's going to be fine
no more heavy weather
put us back together
and then we'll go home

hey pretty angel I'm lost at sea
I just can't swim any more
I need a vessel to rescue me
put me ashore put me ashore

here
take a hold of my hand
'cause these roads are risky
I hope you wont miss me
when you get home

hey pretty angel it's getting late
and soon the light will be gone
your mother's waiting at the garden gate
and that is where you belong

hey pretty angel I'm so lost at sea
I just can't swim anymore
please be the vessel that rescues me
put me ashore
put me ashore

home i'm taking you home
sit up on my shoulders
and 'til we get older
I'll take you
home
