Track #2: Nobodylovers. Features the R. Kelly of Meilahti, R. Kärkkäinen on his rap debut. Not the most typical Viola-track again, but we really do like this one.

Lyrics

the endless glimmer of the fairground world
where the time unfurls as the machines twirl
a goldfish prize for the candy floss smiles
the festive spirits are on the rise

aloof, he moves through the crowd like sleepwalking
invisible and light as air
she's lonesome like a drizzle in springtime
looking for a place for nobodylovers
nobodylovers
nobodylovers

other lovers play a little coconut shy
soon merry goes round in the thrill of the ride
and it's all so fun and they're all so fair
and get to carry home those giant cuddly bears

somehow only he sees her, only she him
they exist just for today
funhouse mirrors twist the world around them
people turn to look but see nobody
...lovers
nobodylovers
nobodylovers
emerging from the unknown
nobodylovers
if you feel them you're not alone
nobodylovers

because it's been years since she passed away
and soon after he went the same way
but here every year they relive again
the day they met - their happiest day

nobodylovers
nobodylovers
they exist just for today
invisible and light as air
if you feel them you're not alone
if you feel them you're not alone
bodies are gone but lovers live on
invisible and light as air
bodies are gone but lovers live on
if you feel them you're not alone

bodies are gone but lovers live on

The Deadweights

Our first stab at more hiphop-esque beats. More or less just trying to copy Black Audio. Glad we got them to remix this track for Melancholydisco 2.

Also featured: a speech synthesizer that sounds exactly like J. Mascis of Dinosaur Jr.

Lyrics

don't let the deadweights
drag you down with their games
they only want you
to seal your dreams in an airtight bottle
and throw it into the sea

your only friend
is lost inside of your maze
she's trying so hard
but the whims of life
are tough to follow
and you're too far on the sea

cos we cast ourselves into unknown waters
and dive into the blue
but we can't swim back up to the surface
because we're all deadweights too

down there the death waits

but we cast ourselves into unknown waters
and dive into the blue
we can't swim back up to the surface
because we're all deadweights too
no we can't swim back up to the surface
because we're all deadweights too

(down there the death waits
death waits the deadweights)
