about

"The Quietest Place on Earth is the follow up to We Lost the Sea’s acclaimed first record, ‘Crimea.’ This record displays the band in peak form, showing maturity in song writing and a unprecedented culmination of styles. Out through Birds Robe Records, ‘The Quietest Place on Earth, will take you on a emotional journey, the soaring post rock will slowly raise you high above the earths atmosphere in space, where time has no sway, and then bring you crashing down to the depths of the ocean, where you will feel the weight of We Lost the Sea crushing down upon you."

This record is dedicated to the memory of Chris Torpy. Rest in peace brother.

Recorded and engineered by Tim Carr at 301 Studios in Sydney.

Vinyl out in Jan 2013

Download comes with hi-res PDF insert.

Thanks for your support.

Track Name: A Quiet Place
A QUIET PLACE

A PLUNGE. A DIVE.
I GAMBLE FATE.
ABANDON CONTROL, OBEY GRAVITY.
FROM HERE, EARTH'S CLAW CANNOT OVER BARE.

I HEAR NOTHING, DEAD SILENCE I GRASP AS COMFORT.
I PILOT LIMBS, AS IF THEY WERE WINGS.
CARVE THROUGH THE CLOUDS.
PLUMMET TO THE BELOW.
I PILOT LIMBS.

I GAMBLE FATE.

I GAMBLE FATE, UNKNOWING OF WHAT IT WILL BRING TO ME.
Track Name: Barkhan Charge
THE BARKHAN CHARGE

HERE WE ARE.
WE GIANTS SWIM, BETWEEN THE EYES OF THE DEEP.
OUR SPIRITS COLLIDE, INTERTWINED.
HIS RIGHT-HAND MAN, AN EMPTY VESSEL.
A TROOPER IN COMMAND, KNOW NOTHING BUT TO SERVE.

A TEN THOUSAND YEAR MARCH.
WHERE WILL WE SLEEP, WHEN WILL WE SLEEP?
IN THE SOIL WE LIE.

DENSE, WITH FEAR.
IN THE SOIL WE LIE.

IN THE SOIL WE LIE, NUMB AND DEPRIVED, NO STRUCTURE BINDS US.
AWAITING THE SMILE OF A KING, A PASSING GLIMPSE OF NIGHT AND DAY,
GIVES US A SIGN, WE MUST PREVAIL.
HOLDING ON.

NO MAN OR BEAST WILL SLOW US ON OUR CLIMB,
HOLDING ON.

ONWARD AWAY FROM VIOLENT BIRTH,
INTO ANOTHER REALM.

MOVING ON.
(I GUESS I'M MOVING ON)
Track Name: With Grace
WITH GRACE

WHERE ARE YOU QUEEN OF THE MOON?

I'VE DREAMT OF MOSAIC LANDSCAPES, AND SKIES FULL OF DIAMONDS.
HANGING LOW OVER VALLEYS,
IN WHICH NEW LIFE RUNS THICK.
WHERE DELICATE WHISPERS SET SAIL INTO THE WIND.
ASSURING THAT I HAVE FOUND, AND BECOME MIDDLE EARTH.
AND CENTURIES WILL PASS AND FADE AT RABID PACE.
FOR THE GIVING TO THE SOIL, WE WORSHIP THE LAND.
AND THIS LUCID WAY OF REST IS HOW I WANT TO REMAIN.
CONVERGING THROUGH THE VOID, FINALLY PASSING ON.
CONTENTLY, WITH GRACE.

OUR SUNS SPEAK IN TONGUE UNKNOWN TO MAN.
OUR SUNS SPEAK IN TONGUE UNKNOWN TO ALL.
Track Name: Forgotten People
This spring 
time to fly 
pink fairy floss 
riding high 
over the rooftops 
beyond the moon 
oh can you see me
waving from my room 

The pretty lights that I'm spying
my blue dress is ready and ironed 
Oh I will be brave when I ride 

Oh sweet child 
it's just a peek 
you can't be here 
here with me 
you can't be here 
ordinary people you're not free 

Fire in the sky 
smoke stacked up high 
ordinary people 
you're going to die 

Are you ready I'm unsteady 
are you ready for 
are you ready I'm unsteady 
are you ready for the night to fall 

I'll shine over you you'll shine over me 
forgotten people 

Lyrics by Belinda Licciardello
Track Name: A Day and Night of Misfortune I - Day
i) DAY

AMONG THE EYE OF OCEAN STORM,
LIES DIVIDE BETWEEN THE RIVAL.
TO BECKON DEATH UPON THEE,
AND CROWN A NAME UPON THE SURFACE.
THE UNFORGIVING SWIRL,
WILL DROWN EVERY LAST BREATH.
NO MERCY NO HESITATION.
WITH GREAT FORCE,
FLOODS THE LAND.

AND TO THIS I SEE ONLY RED.
MUST I CONQUER HE WHO TAUNTS MEMORY?
OR BE ON MY WAY?
BE THE RIGHTEOUS AS A SPINE.
THIS BURDEN HOVERS ABOVE.
THIS WILL NOT CALM,
NOR CLAIM A LAST THOUGHT.
TO CONQUER IS TO PUT MIND AT EASE.
DAY SEES THE SHADOW OF NIGHT.
NIGHT HOLDS GREAT CHALLENGE.
TO BARE CHOSEN DESTINY.
TONIGHT I WILL BE REBORN.
TONIGHT.
Track Name: A Day and Night of Misfortune II - Night
ii) NIGHT

I WILL SLEEP WITH THE OCEAN BED.
TONIGHT WILL SEE TO THE END OF US BOTH.

TO THE LAST I GRAPPLE THEE.
FROM HELLS HEART I STAB AT THEE.
FOR HATES SAKE I SPIT MY LAST BREATH AT THEE.

I WILL SLEEP WITH THE OCEAN BED.
TONIGHT AND FOREVER.

I WILL SLEEP WITH THE OCEAN BED.
TONIGHT WILL SEE TO THE END OF US BOTH.
