Songs Of A Sad Mind

Vapour Night - The Dirt Sea

Vapour Night - The Dirt Sea

Low - Shame

A long time you waited
You thought it had abated
Shame of it all
The harm that it causes
Pours down like a faucet
Shame of it all…

Cold Cave - The Great Pan Is Dead

Tell me when the world is ending
You won’t be there still pretending
I was just someone you would love to love but never love
I know people without substance
will fill themselves with substance
But then, honey child
There was us, there still is

I will come running
running through the years
hunting heart, crushing fear
I am still haunting down the road I know
of the hell that that begs and burns below

Tell me how the stars exploded
Heaven caved in ,earth corroded
I was still breaking my boy in when you first touch me
I know people will say
We’ve thrown our lives away
But is there a trail to salvation
or salvation anyway??

Their love laughs at locksmiths
We’re smashing through the windows
of delicate dream homes
I feel so crowded alone
The empathy of breaking chains
The sympathy in crashing waves
careful boy, caution girl
I do not think we’re meant for this world

Forever haunted by the roads I know
and if not above I’ll see you below.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor - East Hastings

Ali Murray - It Is Too Late (Emily Brontë poem)

It is too late to call thee now,
 I will not nurse that dream again;
For every joy that lit my brow
 Would bring its after-storm of pain.

Besides the mist is half withdrawn,
 The barren mountain-side lies bare,
And sunshine and awaking morn
 Paint no more golden visions there.

Yet ever in my grateful breast
Thy darling shade shall cherished be;
For God alone doth know how blessed
My early years have been in thee!

Vapour Night - Knowing It’s The End

Waking up, it’s time to go
but I’ve been awake forever…
Be my nightfall, Be my lifeline
Be my fire and my rain…

There’s a place out there in the ether
I know somewhere you still breathe
So I’ll live for you one more day
Back and forth like a pendulum
Knowing it’s the end…

Speak to me in the silence
that hovers over all our dreams…
Drink me up with your body
Lay me softly in your soul…

There’s a place out there in the ether
I know somewhere you still breathe
Until the morning light approaches
How can I start a new beginning
Knowing it’s the end?

Isis - Holy Tears

He was patient
Slow descent, chills the bones
His wait maybe long
Still he carries on
Always reaching for her
Always breathing for her
Lifting his hand to the sky
Slow change might bring
Holy tears
Upon his battered skull

Holy tears
Holy tears

He won’t take the priviledge
To know the crown

Death In June - To Drown A Rose (ft. Rose McDowall

Hide from the sun
Life, an icy tear
Rivers of blood
Serenade my lungs

To drown a rose - To drown a rose

Will he hold my soul
Will he tear my heart
Will he - Will he
Will he rip me apart?

To drown a rose - To drown a rose

Decay of belief
And the highest doubts
We spill our blood
Too late to shout

How we burn
Why keep scum from knowing?
32 creases
Shot in the dark
A flame across the sea
We’re going down in history

To drown a rose
To share a dream
The sickness of death
In your eyes - In your schemes

To drown a rose - To drown a rose

Like a crystal tear
I wait to betray
The lie across the sea
My hate is love to me

To drown a rose - To drown a rose

A shot in the dark
Perfumed and sweaty
Why do we mourn
Neutered and muddy?

To drown a rose…

Bjork - Pagan Poetry

Pedalling through
The dark currents
I find an accurate copy
A blueprint of the pleasure in me

Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved

He offers a handshake
Crooked, five fingers
They form a pattern yet to be matched

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It’s pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

Morsecoding signals (signals)
They pulsate (wake me up) and wake me up
(Pulsate) from my hibernating

On the surface simplicity
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
But the darkest pit in me
It’s pagan poetry
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
Pagan poetry
….
I love him, I love him
(She loves him, she loves him)

This time I’m going to keep it to myself
This time I’m going to keep me all to myself
And he makes me want to hand myself over
And he makes me want to hand myself over

Sun Devoured Earth - How Hard We’ve Tried

Modeselektor - The White Flash (ft. Thom Yorke)

You have all the time in the world
No one else, you and me
You have all the time in the world
Me

You have all the time in the world
No one else you and me
You have all the time in the world
Teeth

You and me, you and me, girl
You have all the time
You and me, you and me, girl
You have all the time in the world
And the lights go out
And the stars are out

Ali Murray - Muffled Prayer

Faded are your beautiful eyes
Time has washed away your smile
With each passing breath, each memory
We are the sand and time is the sea

The more I think, I wish you were here
No more loneliness or fear
I’ll turn off the light and retire to my bed
when visions of you come alive in my head

From the moment I wake to the moment I sleep
I’ve confessions to make and secrets to keep
The rivers will run and the days will die
I’ll find you again when I close my eyes

Oh, can you hear my muffled prayer?
It runs deep as the ocean and high as the air
I long for some peace within these walls
Love whispers sweet when I no longer call

From the moment I wake to the moment I sleep
I’ve confessions to make and secrets to keep
The rivers will run and the days will die
I’ll find you again when I close my eyes

Throbbing Gristle - Afraid (Vocals by Sasha Grey)

Cease to know or to tell or to see

Or to be your own
Cease to know or to tell or to see
Or to be your own

Have someone else’s will as your own
Have someone else’s will as your own
You are beautiful and you are alone
You are beautiful and you are alone

Often the adolescent play
Reward your grace
Often the adolescent play
Reward your grace

Confuse your hunger
Capture the fake
Confuse your hunger
Capture the fake

Banish the faceless
Reward your grace
Banish the faceless
Reward your grace
