“Moonbathers” by Delain

В текстовете от петия студиен албум на холандската symphonic metal група DELAIN откриваме влияние от творчеството на писатели и автори на комикси. От Oscar Wilde („The Ballad of Reading Gaol“ или „Балада за Редингската тъмница“, (1898) те заимстват стиховете от \"Yet Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves“ – „Всеки убива това, което обича“.

Канадецът Stephen Pinker в своята книга „The Better Angels of Our Nature“ („По-добрите ангели на нашата природа“, (2011) изследва развитието на насилието във времето и това от своя страна дава на музикантите подтик за по-оптимистичен поглед към ставащото в света.

Любопитен е и образът на Смъртта от комиксите на Neil Gaiman за Пясъчния човек (Sandman), видяна от тях като млада жена в готически стил, която си върши работата с любов и съпричастност.

Ето как певицата CHARLOTTE WESSELS, която съчинява и текстовете на песните, ни въвежда в атмосферата на албума “MOONBATHERS” („КЪПЕЩИТЕ СЕ В ЛУННА СВЕТЛИНА“):

„Когато погледнах стиховете, долових, че се е получила доста мрачна картина, мрачна даже до болка на места. В повечето песни се говори за смъртта, понякога метафорично, а някъде съвсем буквално. Отрицателните емоции отприщват творчеството ми, но независимо, че повечето текстове се пораждат от тях, не искам да ги възпявам. Затова като автор на текстове се опитвам да бъда сигурна, че съм оставила светлина в края на тунела.
Също така разбрах, че когато се чувствам зле, ме влече да слушам тъжна музика и тя ме кара да се чувствам по-добре. Затова ми хареса идеята, че е възможно да се открие утеха дори в мрачна картина и започнах да търся метафора за намирането на такава светлина в мрака, на тази именно утеха. Луната за мен въплъщава в най-висока степен носителят на този образ. Така че избрах къпещите се в лунна светлина, а не тези в слънчевите лъчи, като метафора за всички, които намират утехата в мрака“ – завършва CHARLOTTE WESSELS.

Албума “MOONBATHERS” или „КЪПЕЩИТЕ СЕ В ЛУННА СВЕТЛИНА“ ще чуем в предаването “Картини от една изложба” на програма “Хоризонт” на БНР в събота, 6 януари, след новините от 21.00 ч.

LYRICS:

1. Hands of Gold

[feat. Alissa White-Gluz]

Blood-red and sweet
Mouthful of wine
I savour it
And taste the freedom
On your lips
And heaven knows
I tried
To steer away
Delicious danger
Made me stay

Now I m closer
Closer to the edge
Closer to experience
All of life and all of death
Oh I m falling
Closer, closer to the edge
Closer to experience
Into love and out of breath
I am falling

Blood, red and sweet
Spill in excess
Stick to our hands
And in its rush we both shall rest
And pain nor fear
Can break
This bond, our chain
Together for our crimes
We ll pay

[Excerpt from Oscar Wilde s \"Yet Each Man Kills the Thing He Loves\":]
Some kill their love when they are young
And some when they are old
Some strangle with the hands of lust
Some with hands of gold

The kindest use a knife because
The dead so soon grow cold
Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be told

 

2. The Glory and the Scum

We all live in unforgiving precarious ways
If it bleeds it leads
Is all we seem to hear today
Thorns remain while flowers fade

Monster
Such a noble novelty
Monster
Such a proper prodigy
Monster
It is all enrolled in you and me

It s either wasteland or wonderland
Look at what we ve done
Take a step back
Shake your head at what we have become
We re the glory and the scum

Monster
Sewer of uncertainty
Monster
Creator of entropy
Monster
It is all enrolled in you and me

Monster
Polluter of dignity
Monster
Glory and the scum are we
Monster
Oh the best and worst is all in me


3. Suckerpunch

His frost performed its art
And it has stained my tainted heart
Just leave me to my solitude
It s where I feel at home
Since that cold night
When my love cried,

\"Would you fall, give it all, would you give it all for me?
Suckerpunch the demons from my dreams.
Would you fall, give it all, would you give it all for me?\"

Get out of my dreams

His sorrow cast a shade
That I refuse to walk beneath
I said leave me to my solitude
Where I am self-defined
Only replied
With my love s cries,

\"Would you fall, give it all, would you give it all for me?
Suckerpunch the demons from my dreams.
Would you fall, give it all, would you give it all for me?\"

Get out of my dreams


4. The Hurricane

Your voice is thunder
pounding on my soul
My voice is rain
We re going under
Nothing will remain
We ll be the hurricane

And I can t calm you down
Though I try and try in vain
And you can t keep me down
But I ll try to share your pain
And we ll never back down
We ll let it storm and rain
We ll be the hurricane
We ll be the hurricane

You gathered all the clouds
Safely overhead
I try in vain
still we re going under
Nothing will remain
We ll be the hurricane

And I can t calm you down
Though I try and try in vain
And you can t keep me down
But I ll try to share your pain
And we ll never back down
We ll let it storm and rain
We ll be the hurricane
We ll be the hurricane

All the times that I nearly broke your heart
All the times that we nearly fell apart
Let it thunder over me my love
please let it thunder over you
All the times that I tried to make you scream
All the anger and trouble to redeem
Let it thunder over me my love
please let it thunder over you


5. Chrysalis - The Last Breath

Hey, are you in there?
Don t you remember me,
your oldest friend
Are you in there?
Don t you remember
how I ve always been
The one who cared

when no one else did

Hey, are you aching?
You used to turn to me
when you were down
Are you breaking?
You can still trust in me
to turn it all around
And calm you down

Just remember we re a team

How do you feel?
I don t...
How do you know
You won t...
To let go of you
I will fight
Until my last breath

Hey, are you still mad?
About the time
we almost went too far
I know your regrets
In my defence;
By now, it s just a scar
that distracts you from
your broken heart

Just like you wanted it to do

Don t deny me!
Do you want to try me?
I know exactly what you need
Don t deny me
You know the comfort of the blade
Don t deny me!
Do you want to try me?
I know exactly what you need
You re nothing without me
You re nothing without me
You re nothing without me


6. Fire With Fire

You have let them
Arch your back and
Swallowed the toxicity
Hold your own, don t wait and see

You ve let them make
You feel bad about
Every little thing you ve done
Judge of all things
Master of none

Just kill them with kindness

Cause you will always be
Much too strong
For someone else
You will always be
Much too tall
For someone else
Don t you try to apologize
Black Star
That s what you are
No one stills the fire in your heart
Fire with fire now

You allowed it, you condoned it
You are holding all the cards
All you need is some simple words
\"No\" is a good one, \"hell no\" is better
Open doors by shutting one
It seems impossible until it s done

Just kill them with kindness

You will always be
Much too strong
For someone else
You will always be
Much too tall
For someone else
Don t you try to apologize
Black Star
That s what you are
No one stills the fire in your heart
Fire with fire now


7. Pendulum

Time s moving onwards
Pushing and pulling me
Offering no release
Where do we go now
Why can t we pause and stay

I m hanging on the
Pendulum below the clock
Please swing slower, make it stop

Can we end the endings?
Can we make believe this will last forever?
I don t mind pretending
Still you push me
Still you push me
Faster

Time s moving onwards
Turning the night to day
I m jumping on the brakes
Where does this thing go
Why can t we pause and stay

I m just afraid to
Realize as I look up
Who s getting off at the next stop


8. Danse Macabre

Just cause it s part of a plan
That doesn t make it right
If I put my life in your hands
It s still unmistakably mine

Dark its wings across a pitch-black sky:
Death will come for me, but not tonight

Let the earth cover me!
Angels will call for me!
But in time
Not tonight

I said I d walk the mile
Not that I d walk in line
I can not promise I ll smile
But I can promise I ll try

If I ever make another vow
It s to live for what s right here and now

Let the earth cover me!
Angels will call for me!
But in time
Not tonight

It s the art of death
Give me your best
Give me your darkest
It s the art of the fall
That comes for each and all
But I ll keep it waiting for me
It s the art of death
Give me your best

Give me your best


9. Scandal
[originally by Queen]

Scandal - now you ve left me all the world s gonna know
Scandal, they re gonna turn our lives into a freak show,
They ll see the heart-ache, they ll see our love break,
They ll hear me pleading, I ll say for God s sake,
Over and over and over again,
Scandal - now you ve left me there s no healing the wounds,
Hey scandal, and all the world can make us out to be fools,
Here come the bad news, open the floodgates
They ll leave us bleeding, we say you cheapskates,
Over and over and over again,
So let them know when they stare, it s just a private affair,
They ll have us hung in the air and tell me what do they care,
It s only a life to be twisted and broken,
They ll see the heart-ache, they ll see our love break - yeah,
They ll hear me pleading, I ll say for God s sake,
Over and over and over and over again,
Scandal, scandal,
Scandal, yes you re breaking my heart again,
Today the headlines, tomorrow hard times,
And no-one really knows the truth from the lies,
And in the end the story deeper must hide,
Deeper and deeper and deeper inside,
Scandal, scandal, ...


10. Turn the Lights Out

I was here
When the first morning dawned upon you
I ll be there
I was here
When you first ever drew a breath in
I ll be there
For the last living thing

And I will turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
And lock this wicked world behind me
Lights out
Turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
And lock the universe

I was here
Will you welcome and recognize me
I ll be there
I was here
Will you dread me, will you despise me
I ll be there
for the last living thing

And I will turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
And lock this wicked world behind me
Lights out
Turn the lights out
Turn the lights out
And lock the universe


11. The Monarch

I looked at the stripes
The monarch flies
I halt my cries
If my friend, if you can change
Perhaps then so can I

I looked at the markings
And I looked down to my own
You re here, I thought
Transform I said
And show them how you ve grown
