[(In the) Black Room]

I was thinking about thinking
but it really didn't get me very far,
so I thought I'd throw a Tarot,
but I only got the Priestess and the Star.
There's a shadow cast between the future and the past;
the room and I agree to buy some time....
The cards don't tell truth nor lies,
only options and cusp lines:
the furniture in the black room.

I've been thinking about acid,
but, it seems, there's not a reason to believe.
I don't make a vital breakthrough
and it walks me like a dog upon a lead.
It's all unreal and, the way I feel,
I'd like to try and make it on my own....
Going to the feelies is fine:
I really have me a good pleasure cruise.
But, deep in my mind,
I'm no better or worse, just open to the walls.
Paint peels in the black of my room.

I'm only talking about myself, ordering the treasure shelf,
documenting these present feelings as the future sets me reeling....
What I'll be is what I am,
I'm simply trying not to sham or fake.
Use vision as sense and not as crutch!
It doesn't matter all that much;
whatever happens we'll all survive,
I'm only trying not to pawn my life.

When I'm (maybe) old and strait-laced,
shall I then deny all that I feel?
In words of bitter compromise,
re-smelt the wrath that's in my eyes like steel?
Be a hermit then?
Or be a miser?
Be a man who hasn't managed yet to write his rules?
The Fool?
The future holds my hand in the room....

Well, then, my ghosts shall steer down through the years
and lay a hand upon my soul
like ice.


[The Tower]

So: onto the familiar top steps!
In cloud-scud moonlight glow
the Tower reels.
I, the blind man,
feeling for a path I know...
don't you know that I'm only feeling for how to feel?

Rats run.
Snakes coil.
Fathers
stare out at the whispering night;
rub mud on their arms.

Spiders.
Mud boils.
Children
whimper in the human vortex;
faces glow of worms.

THUNDER
Silence.
Omens....

I think it's coming,
all signs are very near, all signs are that
pain shall come
and change shall run
down through my heart
and shake my knees
and now it is coming,
all around is the humming
of the World.

Too late, with my balance gone,
dead-eyed doll,
I'm falling, falling
back to where I began....


[(In the) Black Room… continued]

I'm feeling like a kid again,
I'm feeling like I just walked in the door,
and with my head on fire
I wrote this song - I don't know who it's for.
Hands held fast in camera,
I'll swear I heard the Stammerer exclaim:
"I am a traveller, unraveller,
I only live through pain, and shame, and change!"

In my room, the secret tomb, I can see
future forms, space/time storms:
they're all me,
and I've only got to choose!

In my head I am dead if I fall
in the trap,
the subtle lap,
safety's pall....
but I'm living while I choose....

Patinka? Spausk ir pridėk prie mėgstamų!

Vienas mėgstamiausių Van der Graaf Generator kūrinių. Kodėl VdGG? Tai jų daina, bet kadangi tuomet, kai ši buvo įrašyta, grupė buvo išsiskyrusi (čia turėtų būti kabutės), o ir jokio albumo leisti neketino ir apie atsikūrimą negalvojo. Nariai dirbo prie Hammillio "chameleono". Bet vieną dainą įrašė visi kartu. Tai ši.

Labai gerai skamba saksofonas, ypatingai 4:00-5:00 laikotarpyje solo labai galinga. "Rats run, snakes coil..." verčia iš koto. Labai labai puiki daina. Lyginasi su A Louse is not a home, After the Flood, netgi A Plague of Lighthouse Keepers... Žodžiu, nėra žodžių...

Norėčiau visaip (kaip tik įmanoma) padėkoti P_Rutai už įdėtas pastangas ir aukojamą laisvalaikį administruojant Music'ą. Malonu girdėti, kad esam girdimi ir netgi išklausomi.
Tad didelis ačiū Rūtai !
PS. Na ir kitiems adminams taipogi ... ;-)

Šiuo metu music'as turi paskyrą ir instagrame (music.lt_official), ji dar nėra labai populiari, bet truputį auga, kviečiu prie jos prisijungti. Taip pat, kviečiu ir pačius rašyti apie muziką, vertinti naujus albumus.
13:19 - p_ruta_
vis tiek skiriu laiko ir music'o administravimui, nes kaip jau minėjau anksčiau - man tai yra įdomu. Tiesiog prašau supratimo ir kantrybės, music'as tikrai nėra apleistas, juo tikrai domisi žmonės, tiek grupės, tiek ir klausytojai.
13:17 - p_ruta_
negaunu jokio atlygio, bet ir nesiskundžiu, nes man patinka administruoti music'ą ir apskritai sekti naujienas, apie tai kas dedasi muzikos pasaulyje ir jomis dalytis. Esu darbo liaudies atstovė, turiu tą 8-17 darbą, turiu ir kitų įsipareigojimų, tačiau
