Under The Iron Sea

01:46 AM

Keane's new album has leaked. Although it is not due to be released in the UK until June 12th and in the US until the 20th, it never the less made its way onto Usenet groups and torrent sites this morning. Being that Alan ordered it today on Amazon, I don't feel guilty giving it a prelisten. My favorite track is The Frog Prince. I wonder if it will become a single. The music is very pretty. It almost sounds like something that one would hear on a carnival ride, such as a merry go round.

The Frog Prince

An old fairytale told me
The simple heart will be prized again
A toad will be our king
And ugly ogres are heroes

Then you'll shake
Your fist at the sky
"Oh why did I rely
On fashions and small fry?"

All promises broken
Feed your people or lose your throne
And forfeit your whole kingdom
I'd sooner lose it than still live in it alone

You were our golden child
But the gentle and the mild
Inherit the earth, while

Your prince's crown
Cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You've wandered so far
From the person you are
Let go brother, let go
Cos now we all know

Soon, someone will put a spell on you
Perfume, treasure, sorcery, every trick they know
You will lie in a deep sleep
That's when

Your prince's crown
Cracks and falls down
Your castle hollow and cold
You've wandered so far
From the person you are
Let go brother, let go
Cos now we all know

The rest of the album is excellent--very catchy, upbeat, and danceable. Crystal Ball is fantastic as well! And the album cover art is second only to The Smiths' covers.

  • Who is the man I see
    where I'm supposed to be?
    I lost my heart, I buried it too deep
    under the iron sea.

    Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball,
    Save us all, tell me life is beautiful,
    Mirror, mirror on the wall.

    Lines ever more unclear,
    I'm not sure I'm even here,
    The more I look the more I think that I'm
    starting to disappear.

    Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball,
    Save us all, tell me life is beautiful,
    Mirror, mirror on the wall.
    Oh, crystal ball, hear my song,
    I'm fading out, everything I know is wrong,
    So put me where I belong.

    I don't where I am,
    and I don't really care,
    I look myself in the eye,
    there's no one there.
    I fall upon the earth,
    I call upon the air,
    but all I get is the same old vacant stare.

    Oh, crystal ball, crystal ball,
    Save us all, tell me life is beautiful,
    Mirror, mirror on the wall.
    Oh, crystal ball, hear my song,
    I'm fading out, everything I know is wrong,
    So put me where I belong.
