lyrics

food is set
the table ready
the meal is done
what the seers witness
what the circle bore to light
hands explore the skin
defense
resignation
apathy and vanity
then the music from her cold
follows him up unlit stairs

"now that that's done with I am glad it is"
the record ever rotating

from the window on the waves
and through the streets
from bar to bar and home to home
the music from her window creeps

at the violet hour
the human engine waits
the hour that strives homeward
brings the sailor from the sea
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity collide

through this city
sweating oil and tar
these walls and waters
fishermen bide their time
before they must return to sea
they must return to sea

and she sits at her window
cutting the sleeper from her thoughts
forget the patronising kiss
what she wouldn't give to leave instead
a long walk reveals it all
trams and trees and red sails
the Isle of Dogs and the lie he whispered in her ear
a new start
the turning tide

from the window on the waves
and through the streets
from bar to bar and home to home
the music from her window creeps

she stayed silent
nothing to resent
nothing to reply
she connected nothing with nothing

at the violet hour
the human engine waits
the hour that strives homeward
brings the sailor from the sea
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity
apathy and vanity collide

about

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.
