February 2010: Heart Breaks Into A Song

This month in Viola Music Club: were a-rockin'!

That's right! It's full-on 110% full steam ahead MIDI rock n' roll from the Viola camp this time.

This month's top achievement: fitting words like "ventriloquist" and "cardiologist" into a carefree indierock lyric.

HEART BREAKS INTO A SONG

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
they just stare

heart breaks into a song
and everybody stops
where does that sound come from
it's an awkward show
but I'm no ventriloquist
what the hell is going on

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
are they just scared
when my heart breaks into a song

heart breaks into a song
an organ-grinding song
the voice is shrill yet so strong
something unheard of
hey cardiologist
tell me what is wrong

heart breaks into a song
the only one it knows
but no one sings along
well I don't care
when my heart breaks into a song

catch that song before it's gone
take it home and sing it to your darling

heart breaks into a song
please tell me doctor
what am I to do
when it sings like this

heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a
heart breaks into a song

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

Invisible Revolution

A song about cats. A song about revolutions. A song about hearts over bank accounts.

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

Kiss And Break Up

One of our early ventures into the "just put every element of the song on top of each other in the end" -school of arranging stuff.

Lyrics

songs start from a kiss
and end with goodbyes
dramatize your tragic love life

let me believe
what I know are lies
simulated emotional designs

steal a kiss from trembling lips
it will vanish in the breeze
like a dream you came and went
now I only want to stay awake

protect me from love's sweet revenge

steal a kiss from trembling lips
it will vanish in the breeze
like a dream you came and went
now I only want to stay awake

happy never after games
in which life parts us in cruel ways
kiss and break up it's ok
kiss and break up right away
farewell is a pretty play
standing ovation every day
kiss and break up it's the same
we kiss and break up once again

Lyrics

almost long lost
somewhere chasing ghosts
adored unknown
I'll shield my fading glow
for far too long

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

we hide behind an emotion proof facade
distance equals safety in our world
we still get burned

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

if I'm happy don't wake me up
nothing hurts when you're losing touch

why does life make sense
only in the past tense
have we had our try
halo goodbye

Violentia (demo version)

This is as goth disco as we get (and it got some nice airplay at a bunch of those). An old one-chord anthem from the Lieksa days that we used to play on our every show (recently we played a scary "a-ferry-to-Sweden" -version of it.)

Lyrics

"this cruel bliss, violent kiss
I'm on my knees that's all she needs
fierce desire like barbed wire
she and I we play at night
malicious games with innocent names
figures of sin carved onto her skin

you poison my nights, you drown my days
and we will never understand
our love is so pure, our love is so cruel
and we will never understand
you and I, cold as the sky, colder than death
you are mine, diabolic divine, so violent

clandestine, hidden from light
this is how we wear our pride
we go all depths, all lenghts tonight
I have a feeling I've lost all my feelings
and it feels so sweet
you silent thirst - violent outburst

You poison my nights, you drown my days
and we will never understand
our love is so pure, our love is so cruel
and we will never understand
you and I, cold as the sky, colder than death
you are mine, diabolic divine, so violent

I'll never let myself go"
