Songs Of A Sad Mind

ambient dream folk…mmm….

Air - Alone in Kyoto

Cult Of Luna - Leave Me Here

Out of a secret longing
They know their way from here
Out of a growing dream
They follow the road we create

I see what I’ve cut behind me
Lost on the bottom you often found me there
False conscience is beyond me
Lost in the backwoods I lie open to you here
Just leave me here

These men are running hard
But you keep down your voices
Living only to judge heavy
All mysteries aside there was a truth outside

Leave me here and I’m born again
Leave me here in this void again
Now I am open left for dead
Just like salvation comes in the end

Tool - Sober

There’s a shadow just behind me,
Shrouding every step I take,
Making every promise empty,
Pointing every finger at me.
Waiting like a stalking butler
Who upon the finger rests.
Murder now the path of “must we”
Just because the son has come.

Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?
Jesus, won’t you fucking whistle
Something but the past is done?

Why can’t we not be sober?
I just want to start this over.
Why can’t we drink forever.
I just want to start this over.

I am just a worthless liar.
I am just an imbecile.
I will only complicate you.
Trust in me and fall as well.
I will find a center in you.
I will chew it up and leave,
I will work to elevate you
Just enough to bring you down.

Mother Mary won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done.
Mother Mary won’t you whisper
Something but the past is done.

Why can’t we not be sober?
Just want to start this over.
Why can’t we sleep forever.
I just want to start this over.

I want what I want

Songs : Ohia - Being In Love

Being in love
Means you are completely broken
Then put back together

The one piece that was yours
Is beating in your lover’s breast
She says the same thing about hers

However I have gotten here
I have plans to be with you
And for the first time it is working

And I am proof that the heart
Is a risky fuel to burn
Yeah, we are proof
That the heart is a risky fuel to burn

What’s left after that’s all gone
I hope to never learn
But if you stick with me, you can help me
I’m sure we’ll find new things to burn

‘Cause we are proof
That the heart is a risky fuel to burn
Yeah, we are proof
That the heart is a risky fuel to burn

Palms - Future Warrior

I slipped into your sight, but didn’t feel anything deep inside.
Then looked out, through clean eyes,
but didn’t see anything that I liked.

The closer I am, I notice something’s wrong with you.
You have destroyed it, destroyed it.

I climbed into your mind.
I didn’t find anything there worthwhile.
I switched back to realize,
I notice something is still not right.

The closer I am, I notice something’s wrong with you.
The closer I am,I know there’s something wrong.

You have destroyed it,destroyed it.
We let go tonight, let us through tonight.
Let us both through, so we can both remember.

Joseph Arthur - Echo Park

Walkin’ with you down through Echo Park
The ghosts fillin’ the trees
The fire never understands the spark
The way it is with you and me

Freedom
Freedom
Our love won’t fade away
Freedom
Freedom
Our love it won’t fade away

The children runnin’ through the greenest field
The light of love pourin’ down
And only you and I know how it feels
When no one else is around

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

Dark atmospheric beautiful haunting noise rock/shoegaze/post rock/dream pop from the Isle Of Lewis in Scotland.

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?
