lyrics

sunshine, the traitor
luring us out to face the world
underground we lay fast asleep for years
we wouldn't feel a thing
lay fast asleep for years
winter kept us warm

we return at night
and set out in the morning
a shadow to follow
a shadow to meet
lilac and hyacinth
we set out in the morning
a shadow to follow
a shadow to meet
lilac and hyacinth

our roots have dried
there is no shelter from the light
under a dead tree
shadow of bent bones
on a red rock
in a handful of dust
a shadow to meet
and a shadow to follow
on a red rock
in a handful of dust

what are the cards she drew for me?
the hangman
dead sailor
those are pearls that were his eyes
blank card
truth is hidden on his back

the staves
the wheel
crowds of people drawing circles
no avail

we return at night
and set out in the morning
a shadow to follow
a shadow to meet
lilac and hyacinth
we set out in the morning
a shadow to follow
a shadow to meet
lilac and hyacinth

failing eyes
neither alive nor dead
hyacinth girl
to you I cannot speak

what are the cards she drew for me?
the hangman
dead sailor
those are pearls that were his eyes
blank card
truth is hidden on his back

This Last World Wels, Austria

This Last World started their musical journey as 'Ashes To Dust' in 2010 and recorded two eps under that name - 'From Here... Direction Sun' and 'Take Shelter'.
In 2019 they decided to found This Last World and release The Wasteland. Inspired by old school melodic death metal, modern metalcore and a little djent they create an intense mixture that sounds like more than the sum of its parts.
