Gotta promote bands from my own country every now and again. :) Behold, BELL X1. Saw them live once. I TRIED TO INCONSPICUOUSLY HIDE IN A CORNER TO STIFLE MY WEEPING (they were playing in our Student's Union).

You left it, I sent it
I want it back
You left it, I sent it
I want it back

If I had you here, I'd clip your wings
Snap you up and leave you sprawling on my pin
This plan of mine is oh so very lame
Can't you see the grass is greener where it rains

You left, I died,
I went and you cried
You came, I think
But I never really know
I've served my time
I've watched you climb
The wrong incline
But what do I know

Accept it, Don't let it
Turn the screw
Accept it, And let it
Scream back at you

Now this applies both equally to you and I
The only thing we share
Is the same sky
These empty metaphors
They're all in vain
Like can't you see the grass is greener where it rains

In the garden Snake was a charmin'
And Eve said let's give it a try
Now lead us not into temptation
But no matter how hard I try
When in the garden and
Snake is a charmin'
And Eve says let's give it a try
Eve is the apple of my eye

And I lie behind you
And a cradle you in the palm of me
And I pat your hair down
I think will we sink or swim?
'Cause we could do either on a whim

What a very mellow and beautiful sound. I bet they really do induce tears, with such a soft and sad melody~

I liked it very much, and the video to go with was really interesting. :) Thanks for sharing~~

(^_^)~<3 Thanks for listening. Yeah, Bell X1 can have remarkably depressing lyrics at times. Very poignant though! I think I feel in love with this song when I first heard the play on the old "grass is always greener on the other side" adage. I wasn't expecting to sentence to finish off with "can't you see the grass is greener where it rains", and it provided quite a strong reaction in me. :)

The video is quite cool. It disturbed me mildly at first because of the constant big smiles on the "apple". Big frozen toothy grins freak me out slightly in that sense because they're unnatural. That being said... :DDD

Also, I have a morbid fear of all bugs (especially house/fruit/blue-bottle flies) barring ladybirds and butterflies. :3
