about

A soulful mix of eccentric, effervescent indie electro rock with rumbling percussion and shades of Vangelis’ - Bladerunner producing another warm Featherest combination of classic futurism.
Once again strong vocal performances from the male - female combo of Featherwest bring fire to the lyrical content of love messages written inside encyclopaedias, overlaid with ghostly images of the ocean, shaping of wooden ships and a wedding veil that never reached the alter.

LYRICS

Bend me, shape me out of wood
Take me, hope me sail out to sea.
Hold me, lay me in the mud
Find me after a thousand years

Like a Viking ship
my love for your will out live its’ maker
Like a Viking ship
my love for you will turn up in an encyclopedia
Cold heart breaker

Late at night I climb into your bed - little girl I still need you I need you
arms out stretched, weave thoughts into a thread
Threads that bare can form into a veil
Asleep at night, my thoughts of you set sail

Like a Viking ship
my love for your will out live its’ maker
Like a Viking ship
my love for you will turn up in an encyclopaedia
Cold heart breaker

BRIDGE

Like a Viking ship
my love for your will out live its’ maker
Like a Viking ship
my love for you will turn up in an encyclopaedia

It says here, a Viking ship -
was built for general speed a maneuverability
Says here next to the description of a Viking ship –
written in coloured pencil that you love me,
‘course then you dumped me

Bend me shape me out of wood.
