Swans - Finally, Peace Lyrics




With glittering hands
On collapsible land
We're praising the sun
For the damage he's done

A ruinous eyesore
Oh what is a mind for?
Just a knife in a lake
Just an arrow in space

All creation is hollow
And a picture's a shadow
Just a symptom of love
With a lack of a cause

Now the city's dissolving
And heaven's inhaling
While the ocean is thinking of a surface reflecting
Your glorious mind

Your glorious mind
Your glorious mind
Your glorious mind
Your glorious mind...

Swans Finally, Peace Comments
  1. Diego Rojas Sebastian

    I now consider The Glowing Man to be the crowning achievement of post-reunion Swans and their trilogy of albums. If The Seer is slugging through hell, and To Be Kind is contending with the chaos of life in the human realm, with the beauty and chaos that comes with humanity, The Glowing Man is the slingshot into the heavens, not peaceful but forceful. The title track may be one of their greatest musical achievements, a colossal track, technically perfect, and such relentless sublime brutality is followed by this piece - Finally, Peace. A fitting end to it all.

  2. D.Antonio Coviello

    Applausi!

  3. Marco Chies

    With glittering hands
    On collapsible land
    We're praising the sun
    For the damage he's done
    A ruinous eyesore
    Oh what is a mind for?
    Just a knife in a lake
    Just an arrow in space
    All creation is hollow
    And a picture's a shadow
    Just a symptom of love
    With a lack of a cause
    Now the city's dissolving
    (dissolving)
    And heaven's inhaling
    (dissolving)
    While the ocean is thinking of a surface reflecting:
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine
    The glory is mine...
    Thanks, Michael Gira.

    This is what a masterpiece sounds like

  5. SUPERCHARGER2001

    To die to this song...

  6. Κ ο μ ν η ν ό ς

    This song feels like dying, but in a good, cathartic way. It's the stillness and calm after a long period of turmoil.

    turn off

    WHY ARE YOU EVERYWHERE FROM DEATH GRIPS TO SWANS REALLY?

    Communism With American Characteristics

    To me it sounds like ascending to heaven, and feeling very happy because you're leaving a life full of terror behind.

    This sounds super pretentious, but that's how I interpret it.

  7. Борислав Бондаренко

    Очень всё не просто у этого коллектива. Но в этом и весь КАЙФ! Я их открыл для себя пару лет назад. До сих пор тащюсь. Думал всё знаю о рокен-ролле, хрен там!!!

  8. Sighbot2966

    What are we?

  9. Cpt. ProlapsoR

    Funny that this song sounds like le late Der Bluthartsch, post Philosopher Stone...

    Your glorious mind, your glorious mind
    Your glorious mind, your glorious mind
    Your glorious mind, your glorious mind
    Your glorious mind, your glorious mind

    Seer: Hell
    TBK: Purgatory
    TGM: Heaven

    Virginia James

    I had a similar thought, specifically comparing each sequential album to the sections of the Divine Comedy. Though I think a more accurate description would be that each album contains elements of both heaven and hell.

    YES MAN!!
    I’ve mapped out a whole movie plot line and scenes around the Seer and same with TBK.

    They do conjure up completely different images though.

    The Seer brings to mind a fantasy mid evil setting focusing on a conflict of a kingdom and the wolf seen on the cover.

    TBK is a completely different story though. I think of a kind of “future warfare” setting between the theocracies of“the sun” and “nightfall”
    Gira also plays a role in the conflict, acting as a Demigod that keeps the world in a constant state of chaos and war.

    I feel like a madman describing this and if you want me to elaborate do tell.

    In some ways, I actually found the Seer to be more uplifting than To Be Kind.

    Onche518

    A Piece Of The Sky sounds more heavenly than any other SWANS piece of music
