November 2009: No Connection

Hi everybody!

To conclude our autumnal triptych of holy melancholy, we present to you a track by the name of No Connection, which might lyrically be one of the darkest Viola tracks yet, so it's fitting we're releasing it on All Hallows' Eve.

Lyrics

no connection
can't get through
inside the box
no space to move
stuck in the night
with this lonely sound
there's no connection
there's no way out

isolation creeping in
yet it gets too crowded
within the skin

no connection
time stops soon
I hibernate in this steel cocoon
cut off from life
and the line is torn
there's no connection anymore

when you're left with just your thoughts
captured by the walls
you start to wonder
if there is a world at all
even the boy in the bubble
was able to see through
and the love leaked in
and the started to bloom

no connection
no rainbow
no sky up above
no breeze of hope
claustrophobic inner voice
too much information
head filled with noise

no connection
the line is dead
tangled around my throat instead
communication cut off like claws
of a tamed old beast in it's time-worn cage

but there's a message coming through
I can feel it in the air
how can it be true
if there's no connection
a signal pushing through
emerging from the noise
the air is getting thin
there's still no connection

everyone needs protection from themselves sometimes
so I drift into sleep
when amber light illuminates I am connected
but until then there's no connection
no connection
no connection
no connection

nothing else could get through
couldn't pierce it's way into this non-room
nothing else could get through
what if all this time I was waiting for - - - - -

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
