Ye lowlives
laughing too much
never close your eyes
til the sun's coming up
underslept, overdreamt

my whole life
trying to speak
but silent
with so much beneath it
that thick wind under the surface
you don't know me, or my purpose
or my promise, i got promise

your hands and feet
for all of their grief
turned out to be
only your elbows and knees
you go farther, you're just starting to see

and you see that red pen
hover in judgement
and that census
get those numbers away from us
cause honest, we got nothing
in our pockets but thin wrists
and promise, we got promise

i'm waking up
pull me from my sheets in the dark
as if in a dream, lifting off
let me feel it shift in my blood
let me feel like i'm rising up
out of all the ashes and dust
out of all the past - that's done
i don't need what's long dead and gone, man, i got promise
i got promise...

Sounds like the Fleet Foxes.  Not a fan!

I had thought it was Coldplay, but I think maybe you're closer to the mark.

Rating up for the album cover. I love pottery.
Today the Rosetta spacecraft will engage its thrusters to land on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko after a couple of years orbiting and a decade of chasing the comet.  Hey Rosetta!

yeah, i definitely hear that vibe as well
HIghly listenable tune.

btw, who is Rosetta? 
 
I've got polyps!
Wow this is amazing thanks Bill! What a groove. 
I have seen them perform so many times now - they are such a great band to see live.  The first time was many years ago in the afternoon at a weekend outdoor music-fest in our little town of Halifax - they absolutely killed it for a crowd of about 200 people.  I knew then and there they would be big one day.

I like them.  Optionally.

i got an audience with Promise..
I don't know, a '5' maybe. Seems like I've heard a lot of this same song format, tempo, and key before here, and this brings nothing new or different.

I like the album cover though.
i bumped it up a couple of rating points
the more i hear it the more i like it 
A fresh wall of sound. A stellar album...again. These folks keep pumping it out.
Reminds me of Grizzly Bear...which is a good thing{#Bananajam}

Just keep them away from the bathtub; appliances always seem to forget about the dangers of water.  Nice Oxford commas.

The Internet of Things is moving forward, I see... ;-)
Beautiful musique from the Motherland. ❤
Always nice to hear music from home. 

Thank you.  
Very nice!
These guys and gals opened for Gomez a couple of years ago......Man, what a show!!!!!

Yes, me too.  I'm good with that.  ;)
Ahhh!  Music from home!

The song had almost completely slipped by by time I had noticed it.

Keep up the good tunes.  And thanks!

Saw these guys when they had Mara with them - they are just great live.

Saw these guys at Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion in Bristol TN/VA.  Great performance.  Quality song writing, surprising arrangements.  Thanks, Bill.
Back again.  This is great.  I feel that this is what Coldplay could sound like if Martin didn't do the vocals.
Well evidently everyone else likes this but me. I switched to the Pink Floyd FloydStory station pretty quickly after giving this a Ho-Hum....sorry....I don't get the love.

Was thinking Band of Horses, myself. Catchy.

If you like this one, there is another song from the same album on the Submissions page. It's called Soft Offering (For The Oft Suffering). There is a video of the band playing the song. Check it out and give it a vote if you like it. Not that I'm campaigning for it ... {#Wink}
NICE. Came in on the second half. Can we do an encore? 
A nice fresh sound from the Rock. Good to hear something besides Great Big Sea.

Love the way this song builds and then rocks out at the end. Promise fulfilled with this album, it is terrific!
