Leading Our bond in tow Stretched and cold Do you believe in This union for nurture extolled You gave to me Damning memories Restless embrace Too late to absolve Caving in And leave it all To expand, to sprawl Can you stay focused? Drive myself to open more Conceding I hear your call Despite our war Believe me It wears me down To watch your withering crown You gave to me Damning memories Restless embrace Too late to absolve Caving in And leave it all To expand, to sprawl Can you stay focused? Drive myself to open more As time guides my eyes Was I your ally? Arms down Breathe (I set you free) Our strings Are free (To breathe) Time trawls As you forget Fate Dread Your secrets buried As you forget Fate Dread All your regret Goes away Forget Dread It’s mine In the end To forgive To forget Trail the dread Lost in a mist Clinging to What you will Forget

Golden eyes Turn to stone And grow cold When elder arms Drop the weight Of our world When the guiding hand is retracted What do we owe then? To temper it (Tempering) (Tempering) Smoldering rage, beneath your pale face Caught in the wake What do we owe then?

Pariah 04:16
Hear then My demons Pariah soar Pariah fall I am I Contrived by this Seething inside Be in awe Relentlessly feigning cause Tantalizing existence Vilified in an instant Premeditated conviction Tantalizing dependence My patience expended Authority slowly siphoned Hear then My demons Pariah soar Pariah fall I am I Entrenched in rage Witness the fall Be in awe A dying star Tantalizing existence Vilified in an instant Premeditated conviction Tantalizing dependence My patience expended Authority slowly siphoned Our communion is fleeting Astray Your feverish screaming Deafening Time warps its toll Pariah fall Tantalizing existence Slowly siphoned Pariah fall Hear then My demons Pariah soar Pariah fall

Cloud-Headed 06:10
Stay here You’re always somewhere, else Are you scared? Stay here Your head in the clouds, they Never clear To raze and run Or mend this broken Eden Come undone Out there The answers are somewhere, else Are you there? To raze and run Or mend this broken Eden Come undone Ordinary We’ve fallen in, complacency Reduced, to simply Waiting Find your home Either one To raze or mend Home is a dread Lost all my treasures And my home I turn to the forest On my own Why did I come here? Where to go I don’t have a purpose Anymore

Sincere 04:52
Ground to be treaded on Soles to be worn down You tunnel down endlessly Self-fulfilling prophecy Kindness, your weakness Souls to be worn down Erode for posterity Self-fulfilling prophecy Meander, winding Speaking in tongues Calm down I beg you Try to adhere us Be sincere Sincere Ground to be treaded on Souls to be worn down (Liar) And I can’t help it (Pretend) I did my best (Clueless) Please tell me again (Shamelessly) How do you think this will end? (Liar) It’s not what was said (Pretend) Your care is imposed (Clueless) Sometimes I think it would be easier (Shamelessly) To talk to your bones (Liar) Sincere Be sincere Ground to be treaded on Souls to be worn down Do we tunnel down endlessly? Towards a prophecy

Bliss 05:38
Tracing, feelings, and days that are past me Circling these moments of disarray This secret you harbor it bursts Out of your hands Traded for bedlam Transience A storm is impending Oh bliss, appear dreamful Our heavy hearts, wavering Oh bliss, appear ephemeral Our heavy hearts Waiting for this caving earth to give way Disdain, on days you curse us with pretence Leaving us sleepless, in cascades, The thoughts that we harbor they flare Out of our hands Traded for bedlam Transience A storm is impending Extorted and bended Transience We’re constantly reaching for Oblivious Happiness We’re breathing If just a moment Cherish the calm Respite for us all It lingers, the storm (Breathe in freely, only here in transience) Too late to regrow Forget your own I’ll hide my bliss away In time our wounds will fade (Parasites, haunting me, terrorize, let me be) Oh bliss, appear dreamful Our heavy hearts, wavering Oh bliss, appear ephemeral Our heavy hearts Waiting for this caving earth to give way

Maelstrom 09:48
Once more, a whirl takes me Once more, I am where I was before Once again, waves crashing underneath my bed Time warps its toll To let it swirl Release the earth And wash ashore a new world Once more, twisting erasure Once more, holding out to who we were before Once again, we’re strung to the anchors of an end Time warps its toll To let it swirl Release the earth And wash ashore a new world Brace for our love (Once more, spiral down) We expend too much Feel something new Spiral down and out (Time warps its toll) To let it swirl Release the earth And wash ashore a new world Here in the deep (Submerged by heavy hearts) Fear fills our lungs (What do we owe then?) Drown in the fervour (As we sever our names) Who would we become? (Inside this maelstrom) Spiral down and out Drown in fervour Carving through the waves In a dream I reach a shore The waves roar, but I am calm Familiar ground, the wind dies down Through woods of red Aged, from accept How our worlds converge Will be on my terms And the waves, they roar, but I, I am ashore Let it swirl Release the earth Release the earth Let go… Let go... Let go... (Ground to be treaded on Souls to be worn down Do we tunnel down endlessly? Towards a prophecy)

about

‘To Exit A Maelstrom’ thematizes the loss of a close family member to a disease, which as Alzheimers slowly dissolves a human being, its personality, memories and language and ultimately transforms the familiar into something alien.

As the album title suggests, the illness can be perceived as being caught in a maelstrom, where one is swallowed by unrejectable, external incoming circumstances beyond personal control finally leading you to drown and be devoured by the chaos.

It is also an album about fighting one’s way out as a relative, up from the maelstrom, to heal one’s wounds and return to life with new perspectives, which are undeniably delivered to those, who once stood on the bottom and gazed upwards.

For the members in FEATHER MOUNTAIN, an important part of that struggle was their common space of intimacy, dialogue and music. Thus, during the process of ‘To Exit a Maelstrom’, it became the personal circumstances and needs who steered creativity and ultimately shaped the album - a testimony of that, which once was, and that, which still is.
