barnfire is the much-anticipated first track of off 'vol. 2' by dweller on the threshold, the followup to their dreary, monumental 2012 effort, 'vol. 1.'


the rainy days the kill you yeah they tighten up your throat and bring you down
her dad died on a day like this with motorcycle hips and hands and feet
and bryan's in his workshop yeah he's holdin things together for you girl
and though it didn't end the way we thought it might, boy but we have grown
the last night we were young it was a flash, at last, i wish that we had known

what do you want me to do?
cause i would do anything.
sometimes i just can't connect;
sometimes i just can't feel my hands

and i can't remember the last time i felt
that my world was the same world as anyone else
each shimmering sun the tattered remains
of a heart that was burning alive waiting for rain

as we brace for the deluge, we cannot deny
that this world is the only world for you and i


released December 2, 2014
