I could just as well post her every performance ever. Her songs are so dark.

I like some folk influence (?) (I don't know if it's true though) and how ''emancipated'' and natural she is whenever she's performing. Unleashing unconscious stuff. I like to think of her as a witch not only because she sings about something resembling occultist stuff and kind of looks like one to me, like this witch archetype (ginger hair and some other things), but also because it's antagonistic for a woman to be this free, authentic and dark like she is in her art. Her music sounds transcendent, especially with those culminations.

She definitely has some early trauma (I think) and her music makes me somehow reconnect with my own traumatic emotions, I think. (Good for therapy cause most of the time I'm just dissociated from everything and not in emotional place,indifferent, but at the same time unconsciously trying to mask that with pushing myself into talking and appearing not indifferent)

Beautiful brand new acoustic version of their old song <3
I don't listen in to the lyrics of this one much, not back then especially with my English, but I have a soft spot for ''Notre Dame de Paris'' by Victor Hugo and that particular character who's ''the King of fools'' there, always was associating him with myself, also a little bit of Esmeralda's naivete cause I was 14 when I read it first, but mostly Quasimodo.


This one is an epic, powerful live performance of the epic, powerful song. Although I still have a problem with that and it's that there're non-classical and classical vocals mixed and I can't perceive it normally. Of course, it makes sense that she uses it in those parts cause non-classical one probably wouldn't sound good in those particular parts, but still something's off about it to my personal taste. I think it's because sometimes she forgets which vocal style is supposed to be there and changes after the mistake, also she in a few parts it sounded like Within Temptation's vocalist's copy which is too ironic to handle cause they were copying Nightwish to begin with. Other than that, the performance is great, I enjoyed all the instruments and her vocals too nevertheless, especially the classical rock ones <3

I want to hear this song live but between this and his solo stuff and his other material he has way too many songs and it's never going to happen lol. Along with a few others I haven't heard live (I've seen him live 4 times with his solo project they sometimes play Porcupine Tree songs, but Porcupine Tree were on hiatus for years and then dead so ;_

That auto insert smiley is so wrong that it's the complete opposite of what I wanted to convey so leaving it there. Also not literally dead I mean they broke up officially.

The lyrics to this changed a lot over the years (guess they got less aggressive lol):



A body is washed up on a norfolk beach
Where I used to build castles in the sticky heat
A cyclone destroys an ancient site
A killer strikes twice in one night

But Jesus was crucified for doing nothing
And God is worshiped for even less

A choir boy is buried on the moor
A nine-year-old is forced to be a *****
Some kids are best left to fend for themselves
And others are born to stack shelves

But Jesus was crucified for doing nothing
And God is worshiped for even less

Sometimes I wander and forget myself
I'm just escaping while I stack these shelves

But Jesus was crucified for doing nothing
And God is worshiped for even less

 

A body is washed up on a Norfolk beach
He was a friend that I could not reach
He thought I was cold but I understand
But for the grace of God goes another man

And I may just waste away from doing nothing
But you're a martyr for even less

A choirboy is buried on the moors
Where we used to go dreaming when we were bored
So some kids are best left to fend for themselves
And others were born to stack shelves

And I may just waste away from doing nothing
But you're a martyr for even less


extended version:

 
A body is washed up on a Norfolk beach
He was a friend that I could not reach
He thought I was cold but I understand
But for the grace of God goes another man

And I may just waste away from doing nothing
But you're a martyr for even less, for even less, for even less

A choirboy is buried on the moor
Where we used to go dreaming when we were bored
Some kids are best left to fend for themselves
And others were born to stack shelves

And I may just waste away from doing nothing
But you're a martyr for even less, for even less, for even less

For even less
For even less

**** you and your book too
You can have it back
When I’m gone these songs will
Will be my tracks

And I had a stupid dream that I could change things
But I’m a martyr to even less

I hate the ground that I have walked upon
Nothing I’ve done has ever mattered long

My parents listen to these people. Unfortunately, they play it full blast on a TV that has terrible, cheap speakers and it sounds like an old steam train with a wonky whistle that never stops. And when it doesn't sound like an old steam train with a wonky whistle that never stops, it sounds like a bunch of pots and pans being dropped onto a concrete floor over and over.
