Violet Rays

"This is interesting because it was written as a straight acoustic song. I had it all mapped out -- words, everything -- on acoustic, and then I got into the studio and it was like, 'This is a really good song -- now what?'

"Actually, now that I think about it, before I even had the song, I had the ascending figure. So for a couple months, I would play the demo of that figure and say, 'OK, I've got to write a song around it.' I broke it down to the chords, no rhythm, and then wrote the song melodically around that and reverse-engineered it back into the riffs.

"This song, in particular, really shows what the band is bringing to the table. There's a certain vibe and ambience that's very much them. There's a lot of parts to it. We're rehearsing it right now for the tour, and we're like, 'What the fuck is going on?' [laughs] -BC, MusicRadar interview, 2012/06/13

 

Lyrics

Faithless moors
Pulling up your oars
From rivers I have crossed
In magic no heart's lost
And I'll leave with anyone this night
And I'll kiss anyone tonight
Am I the only one you see?
Raised from the path of revelry

Spells fall frail
Webs catching sail
In eternal eternities
Divine purpose catching free
And I'll leave with anyone this night
And I'll kiss anyone tonight
Am I the only one you see?
Seized from the wrath of revelry
Am I the only one you see?
Does love matter when loves the actor
For what you are after is me
Babe, don't leave me, please believe me
'Cause I'm so easy to know
Am I the only one you see?
Raised from the path of revelry
Am I the only one you see?
