No Rest by Dry The River

Dry The River

In all honesty, the beginning of No Rest was unassuming.

If not for the fact that I was made me promise to listen to it until the end, I would have missed out on their amazing, impassioned bridge that changed my evaluation of this song forever.

The lyrics and music video for No Rest contains alot of biblical references. There is also an acoustic version released, which is equally good.

Lyrics

I used to be a king alone
Like Solomon or Rehoboam
And in the eaves, the Corvidae
Did jealous keep my picture frames
And everything did oxidate in place.

But then you came, a single cell
With astrolabe and carousel
And algebra and symmetry
And none of this was lost on me
And I could see how still I’d been before

If I don’t eat, I don’t sleep at all
Like limbs in procession,
Like so many birds
Stampeding like oxen,
Our hearts are a herd

I loved you in the best
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best

Did you see the light in my heart?
Did you see the sweat on my brow?
Did you see the fear in my heart?
Did you see me bleeding out?

I loved you in the best
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best way possible
I loved you in the best…
