about

A haunted, wintry tale of estrangement and loss inspired by the Iris Murdoch novel of the same name.

lyrics

In the dark of your room I will leave you a bastard
Oh the king of your bones he is almost in action

In the cold night deliver a soul

When he creeps down the halls he'll believe he's an actor
Filming breeds tiny lies
I can feel him in the rafters

In the cold night deliver a soul

Oh a cold night is fleeting
Oh the winter snow is healing

In the cold night deliver a soul

Do you dream he'll return by the sea with his father?
Water mirrors a ship
Ocean stars sink disaster

In the cold night deliver a soul
