Dark Fantasy

“hey, teacher, teacher
tell me how do you respond to students?
and refresh the page and restart the memory?
respark the soul and rebuild the energy?
we stopped the ignorance, we killed the enemies
sorry for the night demons still visit me
the plan was to drink until the pain over
but what’s worse, the pain or the hangover?”

Song To The Siren

On the floating, shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
‘Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle
And you sang, Sail to me, sail to me
Let me enfold you,
Here I am, here I am
Waiting to hold you”
Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you here when I was full sail?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks
For you sing, Touch me not, touch me not,
come back tomorrow: O my heart,
O my heart shies from the sorrow
Well I’m as puzzled as the newborn child
I’m as riddled as the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Or should I lie with death my bride?
Hear me sing, Swim to me, swim to me,
Let me enfold you
Here I am, Here I am,
Waiting to hold you

This Mortal Coil was a music collective led by Ivo Watts-Russell, founder of the British record label 4AD. Although Watts-Russell and John Fryer were technically the only two official members, the band’s recorded output featured a large rotating cast of supporting artists, many of whom were otherwise associated with 4AD, including members of Cocteau TwinsPixies, and Dead Can Dance The project became known for its gothic, dream pop sound, and released three full albums beginning in 1984 with It’ll End in Tears.

Song to the Siren” is a song written by Tim Buckley and his writing partner Larry Beckett and was first released on Buckley’s 1970 album Starsailor.  The song has become perhaps Buckley’s most famous due to a number of artists covering the song after his death in 1975, notably This Mortal Coil.

Why People Disappear

why people disappear
maybe she couldn’t live like this

 

maybe she couldn’t live at all
will you ever with me this is she
so she made him not want her
how can I say more than that?
whatever brings us together
maybe I know as much as I ever will
