Sick Roses concerns the men of God, their changeless minds, their crooked crooks, their fire and iron, their soft, yellow hands. The song concludes with a setting of William Blake’s great poem The Sick Rose. The music lies somewhere between Muse and the Muses.
The B-side is a longer song, The Hollow, which describes the chaos of a mind before it falls into the hands of God, or flees from those hands. Both songs are from Lyrian’s double album, The Tongues of Men and Angels.
The single is available as a download from 7Digital, iTunes, 121Music, Amazon, Spotify, Napster, Play and all the usual music outlets. Or you can buy it in physical form for £1.50 from Medieval Records.
