Lyrics

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
keep your act together
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
but everything is new just once
and we are history
if we can't make it

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
no prize for good endeavour
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine
until you hit the ground

it all goes round
until you fall out of style
and oblivion
comes round to take you

newest hottest whatever
newest hottest whatever
nothing lasts forever
newest hottest coolest whatever

it all goes round it all goes round
it all goes round it all goes round

it all goes round
so hard to keep track
who's in who's out
either you are new blood
or you're losing ground
the novelty wears out
and it all feels fine

it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round
newest hottest whatever
it all goes round

you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
you want it you get it you have it you use it
and then you lose it you lose it you lose it

November 2010: Astromelancholia

Finland switched off Daylight Saving Time for 2010, so nights start really early again now. You all have a few months before winter snow falls and makes nights a bit lighter again, so there's no better time to gaze wistfully at stars and dream of Urania, the muse of astronomy.

This track might be a suitable option for a soundtrack.

Lyrics

a star in the darkness
light years from home
how long ago
was it when I was breathing
in a different way
than the rest of the human race

into the night
floating in my sleep
into the night
a nightmare of gravity
the weight of my body wakes me

all the lights in the distance
keep glimmering on
reminding me of
the limits of my existence
I am stuck here
lost in a lonely sphere

into the night
throughout the starry skies
into the night
I want to rise

infinite night never closes its eyes
oh Urania you break my heart
beauty at large thrown into the stars
oh Urania you break my heart
oh Urania you break my heart

all the stars in the darkness
how long to go
before I know
what waits for me behind them
wide open space
I won't leave a trace

into the night
so crushing and vast
into the night
further than too far
take me back into the stars

infinite night never closes its eyes
oh Urania, you break my heart
beauty at large thrown into the stars
oh Urania, you break my heart
oh Urania, you break my heart
oh Urania, you break my heart

September 2010: Puppies In The Rain

There goes yet another warm summer and it's time to cuddle up under a warm blanket to make sure you stay warm through the cold dark winter.

PUPPIES IN THE RAIN

puppies in the rain
they'll steal your heart away
under autumn's veil
loppy ears and soggy tails
they don't even know their names
or if they have yet any
if the coldest heart can break
it will break for them

for puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

puppies in the rain
lost on a strange terrain
they just want to play
but they'll need a safer place
a warm lap and loving arms
that'll never let them down
the cold world makes us all bark
but we only want some love

like puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain

take them home and dry their hair
tuck them in a warm blanket
and they'll snuggle up to somebody who deserves it

puppies in the rain
want to feel the warmth again
and find the kindness that can save them

we're puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh
puppies in the rain
oo-woah-woah-woah-woo-oh

September 2009: Sea Curtain

Greetings, good people, followers of Viola Music Club!

Sadly, we had to kiss the shimmery summer of 2009 goodbye yesterday as we're now stepping into September and as always, it brings autumn along with it.

So obviously this means it's time to quiet down here at the club as well. It's been a particularly sweaty summer this year as far as our music goes, so it's definitely about time to cool down a bit with some far more mellow sounds.

Lyrics

this must be the end of the play
the end of the way we thought would never change
so let flow let flow let flow over it all
take my hand for the final bow
no applause no curtain call
let flow let flow let flow
let it flow

let it come down at the end of the play
after the last line comes the last wave
so let flow let flow let flow over it all
the weight of the ocean, the deepest bow
leave only the ghost light on
let flow let flow let flow
let it flow

Lyrics

cute destroyer
starry-eyed cyclone
tear me out from my comfort zone

oh sweetness, I see destruction
sparkling in your wide eyes
cutie pie, I know you're my demise

cute destroyer
shy shatterer of my world
you leave me scattered on the floor

oh cuteness can be deceiving
I undestood much too late
the revenge of the cute brigade

cute destroyer
angelic exterminator
devastation makes you purr

so you're trying to destroy me, it's ok
my life is in disarray anyway
I should book you in the AAA
Adorable Annihilators Anonymous

cute destroyer

cute destroyer
cute destroyer
you will destroy me
oh so cutely
you will destroy me
and set me free

Tedium Rock

An enigmatic anti-ode to boredom and tedious repetition in life.

One of our live-show favorites. In 2005 we felt this track best embodies the kind of music we want to do and we still kind of do.

Lyrics

our routines keep us unintrigued
come on come on repeat repeat
entire lives with one heartbeat
blow by blow
teenage dreams are hard to beat
come on come on repeat repeat
nostalgia dead-end self-deceit
don't wait too long
for the bang of a gong

come on come on repeat repeat
come on come on
come on come on repeat repeat

relieve the ennui

feeling little less each week
come on come on repeat repeat
tired eyes will miss the treats
don't you know
how time stretches the soul

come on come on repeat repeat
come on come on
come on come on repeat repeat

relieve the ennui
uniform reality
avoid symmetry
uniform reality
relieve the ennui

relieve the ennui
uniform reality
avoid symmetry
lack of variety
avoid symmetry
uniform reality
relieve the ennui

this song will end in sixteen beats
come on come on end repeat

Lyrics

someday we won't be alone
they'll contact us on our headphones
time is speeding up
to the moment when all those outcast
will get their chance

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureaucracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

someday when you wake up
all that you can live without
has been taken out overnight
your cat will have a knowing smirk
he's our new recruit

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureacracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

learn to become invisible
and you can see the real view

when we have changed enough little things
then we have changed all of reality
it will happen soon

hearts reign over bank accounts
when the invisible revolution's through
feelings beat bureaucracy
as the invisible revolution dawns

hearts rain
the invisible revolution's through
