jax Great album this. Textures, musicality, modern sound scapes, delicate vocals and lyrics. No bad tracks for me.

matsu_aus I have listened to Foreign Fields for 8 years now and own all their albums. Their creative evolution has been a pleasure to experience and I cannot recommend their music enough. Favorite track: Terrible Times.

rustogalikes The Beauty of Survival feels like more developed, matured and more honed version of the Take Cover album. It's very calming and soothing. The sound design gives it a lot and ties it into memories- like atmosphere. A time capsule. Favorite track: A Better Person.

Swaffy This album is a mix off passionate emotion mixed with delicate sound to express it. The reason why I love FF. Side note, I like how the track "A Better Person" reminds me of "six herons" from twincities. Maybe there is some inspiration in there? Or coincidence, haha. Anyway, thanks for another amazing album. I'm still listening!

Brand New 06:00
VERSE In the mirror fall away When you’re face to face Finally tears drop You’re letting the tears Filling up your heart again When you’re face to face Reincarnate The mirror falls away CHORUS The first time that you hear it Speaking when you’ll need it When you’re face down on Find your way home But finally you’ll feel it The first time that you need it On the crown of your lips On my way home VERSE 2 Broken down lost in my mind Are you calling my name I think that I can hear you I need to be near you Shadow figure open the light I am face to face Reincarnate The mirror falls away (CHORUS) BRIDGE I’m feeling brand new I’m feeling brand new Talk to me to see it through To see it through (CHORUS + BRIDGE)

VERSE I’m Trying words that’ll show you the way inside I Want to fill up the space but my love, my spine Wondering when I will know Planning out how I can be coy I keep saying I can grow Let me tell you this time CHORUS You know that there is Light on your face come and bring it to me Bare hands I’ll show you The light on your face Shadows that bleed into time VERSE2 I Can lose sense of the time and the place in my mind When My failure’s in front of the flames, recognize Fading from my innocence Blue eyed boy he recognized love I keep saying I can grow Let me tell you this time (CHORUS) BRIDGE Clouds at home Abundant now Now we’re off alone in the clouds at home Holy water all abundant now (CHORUS)

Only Water 04:19
My bleeding ego needs to fall away Tripping through the miracle wind You held me up through it again In the foreground silently Drew myself into the prairie I believe, I believe in you Out in the reeds I drew you closer Through the window where we all came from Didn’t realize I could bleed for someone I wanted to take you into the marshes Simile of rain we could become one Hope to avoid evaporation I am wasted I am faceless Dripping through your fingers as I leave your hand Keeping all the oil that I physically can I know you hate this I don’t think straight When I am water pushing through the sand Only water running through your hand I know you hate this But I don’t think straight I am wasted Static urban rain Neon dreams Fell with snow you came Gravity

MY HEART IS STILL A PYRE I NEED TO PUT IT OUT BUT I AM ONLY WATER WILL YOU HAND ME DOWN JUST A TINY BIT OF LOVE I’LL BE A BETTER PERSON MY LUNGS ARE STILL ON FIRE I CAN’T STOP RUNNING OUT BUT MY LEGS ARE NEVER TIRED I AM JUST A PORTION OF A ONCE TRUE BITTER LOVE WITH THE HEART OF A BELIEVER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER NEVER WILL I LEAVE HER

THESE DAYS THAT PASS ME BY I WRITE BLANK PAGES IN THE BOOK OF LIFE OUTSIDE I FEEL ALRIGHT MAYBE I WAS BORN TO TESTIFY THE BEAUTY OF SURVIVAL THE BEAUTY OF SURVIVAL THESE PLAINS WON’T HOLD MY BONES, ANYMORE WILD SPACES FAR FROM HOME FROM THE RIVER TO THE SHORE I’M NOT A KING HERE ANYMORE AM I GIVING UP THE WAYS OF THE WARRIORS ALWAYS PRESSING OUR LUCK EVERYDAY WILL DESTROY US I WILL HOLD WHAT I LOVE I WILL LOVE WHAT I’M MADE OF I WILL TRY TO BEGIN I WILL LEARN TO BELIEVE IN THE BEAUTY OF SURVIVAL
