Sea of Teeth by Sparklehorse

“Can you feel the wind of Venus on your skin?

Can you taste the crush of a sunset’s dying blush?
Stars will always hand in summer’s bleeding veils

Can you feel the rings of Saturn on your finger?
Can you taste the ghosts who shed their creaking hosts?
But seas forever boil, trees will turn to soil

Stars will always hand in summer’s bleeding veils
But seas forever boil, trees will turn to soil…”

Sparklehorse is a band I really like listening to (NO hipster jokes please).
This is a song you would listen to on a winter afternoon, and let the sunlight fall on your face. Many find this song very depressing, but somehow I don’t. It talks of beauty, nature and its inevitable decay in a way that lets you make peace with it, and not fear it.

Can you listen to it and tell me how you feel?

  1. It reminds me of a winter night when I was learning about the energies that surround and infuse us. It was a subdued joy to know that we are all connected and that the connection doesn’t end in death. It was like finding the home within myself.
