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

Lyrics

CHAOS SHALL REIGN!

we open our eyes
as the dark day dawns
nature spills savage blood
wastes away its pawns
feral children
tending the flames
soon the fire will rise
and chaos shall reign

chaos shall reign
it was here first and will die last
chaos shall reign
glories of the fearsome past

there are forces within
and forces beneath
the surface seems calm
or so you'd think
seeds of destruction
the ruins have no names
black kiss of evilization
chaos shall reign

chaos shall reign
it waits in the deep for you and me
chaos shall reign
bow your head for sacred entropy

chaos shall reign
hail chaos hail

we are descending the stairs
down through the structures of reality
closing in on the original dark void
the sound of the bells from the deep
the abyss from which all complexities evolved

chaos shall reign
societies hanging on a thread
chaos shall reign
chaos springs eternal death
chaos shall reign
chaos shall reign

Lyrics

a secret rendezvous
where thoughts lay cold like empty sky
forever left alone
and the morning seemed so frail
my strength was shattered onto the shore
now that I was with her again

I dreamed of your nothing

all the knowledge
should have kept me from going astray
when lust lingered near
I should have stayed
for one last time
there's nothing to fear
if all ends in tears

growing melancholy
lost in the heart of your absence
black hair strangling me so softly
and the storm of her presence
danced wil on the ruins of our caress
her everhungry eyes

I dreamed of your nothing

all the knowledge
should have kept me from going astray
when lust lingered near
I should have stayed
for one last time
there's nothing to fear
if all ends in tears
and if all that I have
is for my love
what is left for myself
(nothing)

I dreamed of your nothing

Lyrics

leave the house, walk by my side
fall into comfort of the night
I'll show you where the shore shines bright
tonight there will be no sorrow
there will be no more sadness
there will be just us

can't you read it from my eyes
this urge to make you realize
you are my hope and desperation

tonight there will be no sorrow
there will be no more sadness
there will be just us. you and me

and the eyes of the drowned
adorned by love
will radiate
from the bottom of the sea

Late Autumn, Early Winter

Closing weepie with very vague lyrics. Apparently haunted by the astral spirit of Robert Smith. It grows and grows... and grows some more. The guy who mastered said it sounded like Pink Floyd!

Lyrics

"it's the season you love
it won't keep you warm
if you have to go
the night is so chilling and black
the wind could get mean
maybe it will snow

when they found her this time
frost in her hair
where had she been?
when they found her in tears
from deep in the woods
they understood

no, you don't get along with anyone
you walk the long road on your own
and if the season you love is over too fast
then you have to go, alone

when they found her this time
frost in her hair
where had she been?
when they found her in tears
from deep in the woods
they understood"
