David Yvinec Bluesy, heavy, dark, doomy, groovy... a perfect soundtrack for the end of the world as we know it. It feels good and a little less lonely to put words on those feelings and to have them expressed through such great music. Let's Salt the Earth and call it a day. Times Ruins Everything in this No Man's Land anyway. Favorite track: Salt The Earth.

Daniel Golcher There is little I can say that would do justice to what these Norwegians bring forth with their music.
A kinda dark gloomy blues, full of catchy riffs and amazing musical vistas. Favorite track: Salt The Earth.

doofusrage I couldn’t tell whether this album was my favorite or their first album so I bought both. No regret on either purchase.

Track Name: Salt The Earth
Salt The Earth


No stone to be placed on stone
Tear the skin clean off the bones
Leave a place where nothing grows
Never light in these shadows

The heart is a desolate place
Where ghosts roam in the haze
A thousand feet dragging through the snow
The wind is a lonely song of woe



Lick the wounds, dry your tears
Salt the earth
Cut the cord, close the door
Salt the earth



Clear the eyes for all things lost
Clear the heart of the biting frost
Clear the mind for nothing at all
All that rises must eventually fall

Burn the ground you walk upon
Drain the wells, all water’s gone
Curse the sky and curse the rain
Curse the land to be a desert plain



Lick the wounds, dry your tears
Salt the earth
Cut the cord, close the door
Salt the earth



Salt the earth so nothing grows
Salt the earth and leave it to the crows
Salt the earth let everybody know
Never light in these shadows
Never light in these shadows
Track Name: One For Sorrow
One for Sorrow


I was a stranger
Walking through a strange land
I was a drifter
A shape to your eye

Whispering secrets in the air
Saying things you almost hear
I’m the one in shadows
I’m the one for sorrow



I was a reptile
Hidden in the sand
I was a serpent
Hunting eyes in the night

I was a nightmare
In the back of your mind
I’m the one in shadows
I’m the one for sorrow




The one in shadows
The one for sorrow
One for sorrow
Track Name: Lay Down
Lay Down

Lay down on the ice cold ground
Finally I’m homeward bound
Eyes open so I can see
The world has lost its hold on me

Lay down in the light of dawn
I’ve done whatever to carry on
Last minutes, one last day
Finally nothing more to say



All your days have gone
No more days will come
For a short time the world was all light
Now that time has gone

All your days have gone
No more days will come
For a short time the world was all light
That’s all gone




Lay down, listen to the sound
of the whole world coming down
Ashes will fall like snow
And time has come to let go




All your days have gone
No more days will come
For a short time the world was alight
Now that time has gone

All your days have gone
No more days will come
For a short time the world was alight
That’s all gone



Lay down, let darkness take you
The ferryman sees you through
You have paid the cost
Now look back on all you’ve lost
Track Name: Heart Of The Mountain
Heart Of The Mountain

I once knew a mountain
that grew from a grain of sand
Every year she grew bigger
Stretching out across the land

Every day she opened her heart
to welcome the dawning sun
Every night she ran with the moon
Until the time there was none



I've seen every sparrow fall
Let me crumble back to earth
Let there be nothing left at all
Nothing left at all



Can you see those diamonds
The ones she hid deep inside
Way too heavy to carry
Way too precious to hide

The hounds lay quiet now
The wolves sleep at her side
No one mourns her passing
All is lost with the unforgiving tide



I've seen every sparrow fall
Let me crumble back to earth
Let there be nothing left at all
Nothing left at all
Track Name: No Man's Land
No Man’s Land

I wear a cloak of darkness
a cloak of stars
I wear a cloak of moonlight
Cover all my scars

I wear a cloak of ice
a cloak of snow
I wear a cloak of winter
Live where nothing grows



I wear a cloak of fangs
a cloak of horns
I wear a cloak of talons
A skin of thorns

I wear a cloak of thunder
a cloak of rain
I wear a cloak of lightning
Storms feel no pain


Hold me down
Send me out
No man’s land
Track Name: Time Ruins Everything
Time Ruins Everything


Time ruins everything
Rips a hole and shoves you in
Time ruins everything
Everything that has ever been

Every step you take
further down this winding road
Every step you take
As you shoulder a heavy load



Rust takes it all away
Time ruins everything that way



I would give you my hand
If I thought I could see you through
I would give you my hand
But there is no one left to turn to

Time waits for no man
Relentless in its passing
Time waits for no man
The end could be a blessing



Rust takes it all away
Time ruins everything that way
All the dust will settle someday
Time ruins everything that way

Time ruins everything
