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

August 2010: Traitor On The Inside

Hey everybody!

August seems to be Finnish Indie Appreciation month here at Viola Music Club. Last year we did a cover of Tv-resistori and this year we're having a go at the brilliant Traitor On The Inside by Red Carpet.

Lyrics

TRAITOR ON THE INSIDE

come and see my beautiful country
where the lights go out at six in the evening
the winter can leave you depressed and freezing
and the summer won't melt the northern heart
traitor on the inside

I got friends in high places
they owe me one to make me faceless
I can speak and remain nameless
I'll disappear into the air
traitor on the inside
won't you let me out

there's a heart that's always aching
left alone and thrown out for breaking
a heart so strong that it will go on
long after our world is gone
traitor on the inside
won't you let it out
let it out
