Music Monday is a meme, created by Drew at The Tattooed Book Geek, where I focus on a song I absolutely love and feel needs to be shared.

Song: “Garden In the Bones”
Artist: Periphery
Album: Periphery IV: HAIL STAN (2019)

Lyrics taken from genius.com

[Verse 1]
Mercy like a gun when you’ve come undone
I’ve awoken in the hour that receives no one
The sound of a tribe will shake me out until sunrise
The heat of tomorrow released as the wind blows
A beating stare from all the tribe
No sleep tonight

[Chorus 1]
The howl from below
The wolf and the soaring crow
Am I losing control?
Am I losing all of control?
All spirits entrance
I toss and turn in no romance
From six under the grass the prison breaks like glass

[Verse 2]
Stripped of all the air in my lungs now
Flee from the walls
So alone
Stampede in the room like a buffalo
Raise me up in my throes

[Chorus 1]
The howl from below
The wolf and the soaring crow
Am I losing control?
Am I losing all of control?
All spirits entrance
I toss and turn in no romance
From six under the grass the prison breaks like glass

[Post-Chorus]
Upon the burial lie thieves of their past
Firewater
Tenacious
Upon the burial ground
Upon the burial ground

[Bridge]
Between the living and the dead we move
Between the living and the dead we all move
Shift all placement, but they’re sifting you
Between the living and the dead we all move

[Chorus 2]
The claim we stake
A land within our wake
A garden in the bones
A headdress down in the soil we own
We built it on the bullshit or build It upon the burial
A garden in the bones
A headdress down in the soil we own, yea

[Verse 3]
Stripped of all the air in my lungs now
Feeling so alone
Stampede in the room like a buffalo
Feeling so low
Pull out all the ground from below
You’ve given quite a show
Stampede in the room like a buffalo
Raise me up in my throes

[Guitar solo]

[Chorus 1]
The howl from below
The wolf and the soaring crow
Am I losing control?
Am I losing all of control?
All spirits entrance
I toss and turn in no romance
From six under the grass the prison breaks like glass

[Post-Chorus]
Upon the burial lie thieves of their past
Firewater
Tenacious
Upon the burial ground
Upon the burial ground
Upon the burial ground
Between the living and the dead we move (We move)

[Outro]
Mercy like a gun
