Poesy Rider Allez savoir si ce n'est pas le démon de midi !? Alors que tout allait pour le mieux avec Anneke, voilà que je me suis entiché bien malgré moi, bien entendu, d'une chanteuse à la voix de sirène. Comment vais-je sauver mon couple à présent ? Pardon Anneke ; pardonne-moi... Favorite track: Synthesised Happiness.

Music 04:10
Music doesn’t speak anymore It doesn’t whisper in your ear And tell you what your searching for Music doesn’t dance anymore It doesn’t sparkle in the distance Like it did before Music doesn’t touch anymore It doesn’t take you in its arms And pull you down to the floor Music doesn’t answer anymore That once solid of connections Eludes me It doesn’t speak to me It doesn’t speak to me It doesn’t speak to me I speak to it.
A Body 03:55
You don't have a soul You are a soul What you have is a body Night things bump We stumble from depth to height Focus lost, we fumble try as we might To keep some distance From the deeper truth That at the greatest depth there is Nothing inside of you Down and out Full and empty We long and long Silence to machinations Going on and on and on You're complete You don't know it yet Don't know yourself
Shards 04:53
There used to be a lamplight in your eyes A microscopic floodlight Now what do I find Nothing but the shards she left behind There used to be a flavour on your tongue An enigmatic backbite Now you’ve lost that spice And nothing seems to spark or reignite As you rake the cobwebs from your face And clear the film that stuck your lids You’ll feel a sentimental bliss When you’re returned your senses I’ve been watching, waiting, wondering Is there a fusilin for this Unyielding, unsuspecting Eradicate her and her polluted lips When you find your own way back home There’s a light on always When you find your way back home There’s a future she can’t erase I used to see a floodlight Now what do I find Nothing but the shards she left behind
Waves 04:27
It’s not my only language The water speaks to me It fills my soul with whispers Longing for ocean sweeps I want to feel the rush around me Feel its power crushing on me Thank you to the fire It’s not like I’m controlling any flames Thank you to the fire That burns so deep I’m running through the waves Some put stones in their pockets Some lace up concrete shoes For peace to fold around me Sing the Translucent Blues I need the soothing cool on my skin I feel it wash the darkness within
Ghostly thoughts evade you And your conscience enslaves You must slip out the corners of the frame You let form Question why you care, did you ever Who, or what is the form that oversees The edges of your mind Cause we should keep a close eye On the patterns forming When we are not looking Flee into the cream vignette and float away But you only dream The things your eyes have seen When your minds adrift where’s it go Pay attention To the places that your body can’t follow Be watchful of the shadows And characters that play out All the horrors that you’re rushing to forget
Laniakea 02:12
Oh, lets run to the riverside By the dawn when the distance hides In the mist we are paused in time Oh, come with me Here where the light filtered through We’d given up on feeling something new Take us to where they serve desire We want to be forever dissatisfied Oh, and here we revive our thirst Apathy it has done it’s worst Light to use and heights to seek Oh, come with me
It’s a game, she plays herself She’s got one of everything But it eats her up inside to Know she never has It’s a game he plays to feel Something, anything that’s real Cuts and long-sleeves Laboured heartbeats Soaking in his sorrow It’s a game we play to freak Out with what we should’ve done In each circumstance another Path we wish we’d taken In a game we know is play We believe it anyway Breaking rules we made so fragile Lost and found control It’s the curse of our age to be unhappy Our biggest fights against ourselves With no enemies our thirst prevails To synthesise the joy we hope Somewhere, someone has
Where you go you are, so go You are my shining star, so shine Our hearts are never far apart Weighted light leans through your window You packed up all your dreams and left Come back too soon I’ll kick your ass You’ve got so much to prove, so start Weighted light leans through your window
Sails 03:05
The distant light held in the fog And nothing ever could go wrong We knew, we knew, we knew We knew our own strength would hold us We couldn’t wait to get away We deftly tied our dreams to sails It blew, it blew, it blew It blew our boat over oceans Tie your dreams to sails Tie them down Beneath the canopy of stars We slip between the deepest darks The hope we held reflected in our eyes Never blinking An empty vessel with much to trade A waking vision never fades The thunder beats But beating stronger still The drumming of our will The night air beckons Tie your dreams to sails The winds are changing Tie them down The water rises Tie your dreams to sails The winds are changing Tie them down We lost an awful lot We lost enough to sink us down But clinging to the rocks It was a mountain that we found
