We Lost The Sea are a heavy progressive post-rock band from Sydney Australia.
Formed in 2007,
friends came together to create a new collection of noise that gathers relentless crushing guitars together with post-rock atmospherics and melody. Incorporating elements that hold up to the likes of Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Cult Of Luna, Mogwai and Sigur Ros....more
Track Name: Hail! Star of The Sea (The Rise of a Shining Emperor)
as we set out on our voyage
across mysterious waters
i stare into the matt black starry sky
where you shine so pretty and bright!
adored by the many that surround, you shine!
your immaculate ways will guide me through to the end of our journey
hail! star of the sea
filled with uncertainty and fear
i know you will see me through
i know you will guide me through to the end
with the stench of death in the air
uncertainty and fear
i know you will see me through to the end
of our journey...
Track Name: Balaklava Cold
bring forth the overpowering grasp of balaklava
our men are left gnawing on desperation
as their bodies give in to the torment that has stricken their souls
amongst the hailing gunfire
i turn to my side
only to find my fellow allies...
victimised by the mighty bear paw
and so i pray for all of them
who truly need it
i praise them to the sky
a sky that is burning red
lit up like a furnace
exactly how i pictured the end of the world
is it really worth it?
i look around
all that is left is the rotten cores of...
the slowly decaying walking dead
and i refuse to take part!
i will not take part
keep pushing forward
i will not take part
keep pushing on
Track Name: Siege of Sevastopol
conceived from an emperors womb
raised for pure destruction
but there is no defeat
on conquerors land
and so we were told...
you must die where you stand
Track Name: March to Scutari
over and beyond the blazing horizon
is where serenity lies
i’ve struggled through these smouldering fields
slowly withering away
and i’ve witnessed the forlorn gaze of the fallen brave
their complexion has turned to absence
their bodies all resembling paralysis
and even though i’ve come out battered and bruised and barely breathing
it’s your guidance that has brought me to where i stand
triumph is now the epilogue
because i still stand...
i stand amongst the dead
i still stand among the dead
a home stretch, one final battle
i will be joining you soon
dying to be set free...
we stride toward a blinding light
with our heads held strong and high
trumpets sound as we become the clouds
we will forever roam like kings
living eternal life
