You've got a beautiful brain
But it's disintegrating
From all the medicine.

Absolutely adore songs that just contain a small story. I've attached the lyrics, although you need the music for them to become powerful. By themselves, they're nothing special -- fair given, at this time, none of the band spoke fluent English.


The story
It's about a lighthouse keeper, who always keeps to himself. However one New Year's Eve he goes to town, where he meets a woman he connects with. The woman is leaving the town soon on a ship. They spend the night together. That same night, as he walks back to his home, he gets beaten and knocked unconscious. As he was unconscious and then fevered throughout the day, there was nobody to manage the lighthouse the following night, which causes one ship, the White Pearl, to hit a coastal reef and sink. All on it died -- including the woman from before. It turns out the man who beat him was also the woman's husband, who she was running from. Everyone in the town blames him for the deaths on the ship. Consumed by guilt, he leaps from his lighthouse to join the sea.

The lyrics
I was born and raised by the sea, Shy yet proud,
Learned to stay away from the crowd
In my home, my lighthouse
101 steps , round and down
New Years Eve, one night in the town
Can change one life into eternity

All I could see, her eyes,
We got caught in the moment, all of the night
Taken beyond all lines,
In silence leaving 'em all behind

She had found the sails, for the following night
The town, for her, was getting way too small
She promised to be mine
Forever, for that one night

Moments, passion, small defeats
Concealed emotions, found in me
You gave life to a brand new me

Crossing the wintry fields,
The first hour of morning's light
Warmed by the flame inside,
The lasting memory of the ending night

I never had a chance to stop what hit me
What broke my bones and mauled me
After hours of deep, unwilling sleep
In a cold shelter Fell back in the dark,
And the hours of the day passed

A nightmare awakes me, blinking light!
There's no guide, blind ships in the night
Oh blood red moon, eat away the night

Darkness covers my lonely soul,
No one to feed the dying light

Good morn', oh dreadful day,
I prayed the moon had lit the sea instead of me
For the sails of night,

Please tell me everything's alright
My voice in the room broke the silence,
Everybody killed me with their eyes
What I was to hear made the people cry,
Impossible for me to keep the tears inside

All on board the White Pearl have died,
Coastal reef have tolled their lives
And you are the light of the night

One thing, I remember, before I fell on the ground
Although I never saw the face,
A name was inked in his arm

Love can be like poetry of demons,
Or maybe God loves complex irony?
The family name stated I had seen before
Written on her front door

Silence in the courthouse!
A presence sealed the room, we both could feel
The father of her unborn child and me

All on board the White Pearl had died,
Coastal reef had tolled their lives
While I was the guide light
Back in my tower, run, run, run
Light is out, I hope to see
Black oceans beneath rise and swallow me

One step will take me back inside, another sees my end
No one can love a man who guarded the light
Guarded the light, one faithful night,
Flaming eyes I must confront before I am stated free

Defining innocence is hell, after all that has past
Building new walls inside, my eternal night
Although they took my heart and dried me up
Sometimes I still bleed

Show me the way
Show me the way
The light will show me a way on the grisly reefs
Too many dead ends I see
I know no soul can save me
The respect I lost, the measure of a man

Ten thousand steps down, round and round
One night on the town and I'm hell bound
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me
All on board the White Pearl had died,
Coastal reef come claim my life
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me

My little tower, seal my fate
Help me pay back, end their hate
Black oceans beneath come and swallow me
One direction, down, down, down
Pitch black night for my old town
Black oceans beneath shall now swallow me

I hereby, commit my body to the deep
To return to the corruption
Looking for the resurrection of the body
When the sea shall give up her dead
And the life of the road to come through our Lord
Amen

I'm listening to Skyfall - Adele right now, but my favourite song is really The Show Must Go On - Queen

^ Always makes me feel better!

A song I’m loving right now is Sigrid’s ‘Plot Twist’.
