about

The first track of this single is a cover from Clan of Xymox (Pieter Nooten) Back Door taken from their 1986 album "Medusa" that was requested from a fan in exchange for a contribution to our last album "III" fundraiser campaign in 2014. The second track is a collaboration between italian band Hidden Place and Handful of Snowdrops initiated by Hidden Place back early 2012. A slightly edited version appeared on their "Novecento" album released at the end of the same year.

Between the Devil and the Blue Sea
Tomorrow will have us on our knees
Before the sun goes down on it
For yearning some justice we're too late
Rest all cases, this is our fate
Our minds open then shut again

Here it comes...
Silent terrors and eerie calm
Before the thunder, the quiet one
That feeds on anger like beating drums
In one last letter
Here it comes...
Rogues and traitors we drop the bomb
The perfect murder, we can't hold on
Today I leave her, before I'm gone
She demands an answer
Here it comes...

Behind the clouds where darkness lays
Darker than the darker days
A flow of light we can't sustain
Between the Devil and the Blue Sea
Abandon ship and throw the key
Before the tide is up again
