Το πρώτο σινγκλ Through The Deep, Dark Wood από το νέο άλμπουμ τους  Time Stays, We Go   διαθέτουν δωρεάν οι "The Veils", από την επίσημη σελίδα τους εδώ.

Well she said, baby,
Come on and take my hand
You know that lately
You've been my only man

And all that I wanted
Is for you to see
Come on now, my love
And take a walk with me

Through the deep, dark wood
Through the deep, dark
Through the deep, dark wood

Love, lay your hand upon my chest
So I can't go back
No, this love ain't like the rest
No, I can't go back
Now there's no more to love than this
No, I can't go back
Back
Back

Well she said, baby,
I feel you coming up
We spend a lifetime
Getting our lover wrong
She said, there's no need
Come on, it won't take long
The dreams are strange but good

Through the deep, dark
Through the deep, dark wood

Love, lay your hand upon my chest
So I can't go back
No, this love ain't like the rest
No, I can't go back
Now there's no more to love than this
No, I can't go back
Back
Back

No, I can't go back
Back
Back

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - We No Who U R / Lightning Bolts

File:Push the Sky Away.jpg

Στις 18 Φεβρουαρίου κυκλοφόρησε το νέο άλμπουμ των Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Push the Sky Away από το οποίο προέρχεται το We No Who U R που είναι και το πρώτο σινγκλ.



The tree don't care what the little bird sings
We go down with the dew in the morning light
The tree don't know what the little bird brings
We go down with the dew in the morning

And we breathe it in
There is no need to forgive
Breathe it in
There is no need to forgive

The trees will stand like pleading hands
We go down with the dew in the morning light
The trees all stand like pleading hands
We go down with the dew in the morning

And we breathe it in
There is no need to forgive
Breathe it in
There is no need to forgive

The trees will burn with blackened hands
We returned with the light of the evening
The trees will burn with blackened hands
Nowhere to rest, no where to land

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive

We know who you are
We know where you live
And we know there's no need to forgive... again

Σαν bonus κομμάτι προστέθηκε και το Lightning Bolts στο οποίο περιγράφουν τη δεινή κατάσταση στην οποία έχουν βρεθεί οι Έλληνες μετά την οικονομική κρίση.




 Two lightning bolts were delivered to my room
They were gifts from Zeus
I rock the bolts in a basinet of pine
People ask me how I am
I say I am all right
I'm fine!
I push the lightning bolt in a pram
Till the sun goes down & it gets dark
The girls from Jubilee Street hang out their windows
And they wave & ask me how I am tonight
I say I am good
I'm all right!
I Athens all the youths are crying from the gas
I am by the hotel room working on a tan
People come up and ask me who I am
I say if you don't know
Don't ask
Zeus laughs but it's the gas
He asks me how I am
I say Zeus don't ask
My lightning bolts are jolts of joy
They are joy boys from Zeus
I fed them porridge in their booster seats of knowledge
And in the cradle of democracy the pigeons are wearing gas masks
My lightning bolts play in the elevators
They slide down the hotel banister
And Zeus throws a gas canister
And it spins around the pool
As pigeons wearing respirators
Steal the lightning bolts
Zeus wants them back
O my bolts of joy
O my darling little boys
They are lost to us
And people
They are never coming back
At night I watch them sleep
And cry years of tears
And it's not the gas
People ask me how we are
We are I say mostly lost

Marillion - Power / Gaza

 File:Marillion - Sounds That Can't Be Made.jpg




Από το 17ο στούντιο άλμπουμ των  Marillion,   Sounds That Can't Be Made,  που κυκλοφόρησε στις 17 του περασμένου Σεπτεμβρίου.

 You carry me around
Like loose change jingle-jangling
At the bottom of your bag
You don't seem to feel it though
As you swing down the street
Walking that unique birthday-candle glow

In broad daylight
In broad daylight

And you don't even know
The way I love you

You never knew power, did you?
You thought that power was in a strong arm
People pass the laws and gold
Tsunamis and mushroom clouds

Oh babe that's nothing

You think it's kinda sweet
The stammer and the tremble in my voice
But don’t mistake it for weakness
Or some kind of incompleteness
'Cause round about now
I can feel it tingle-tangling
It's coiled up inside me
And it’s ready to blow

You never knew power, did you?
Thought it fizzed in the overhead lines
Burning steel and bone to carbon
Saturn 5 in vertical climb

You never knew power, did you?
Thought it roared like Niagra Falls
Or melted stone under volcanoes
Earthquake thunder lightning storms

The way I love you
Is something you don't understand
The way I love you
Took more than I could imagine, even now
You never knew power
All the time you felt so strong

But now you can't function
Awake or asleep
As the meaningless world falls away from your feet
And the Universe ceases it's light-speed retreat
Life was sweet in the meteor shower
Of the star-high divine
When you sparkled and fell
From heaven to hell

And ten years grinding by in every hour
In every hour
I know all about power

Listen to the rain
You might feel a tremble
You might feel it

To άλμπουμ ξεκινά με το 17άλεπτο Gaza, που αναφέρεται στο δράμα των παιδιών της Παλαιστίνης.



When I was young it all seemed like a game
Living here brought no sense of shame
But now I'm older I've come to understand
Once we had houses
Once we had land
They rained down bullets on us as our homes collapsed
We lay beneath the rubble terrified

Hoping.. Dare we dream?
We gave up waiting
For us, to dream is still a dream

When I woke up, the house was broken stones
We suddenly had nothing
And nothing's changed

We live, eight people, in this overcrowded heat
Factory-farmed animals living in our own sweat
Living like this is all my baby brother ever knew
The world does nothing. What can we do?

We will kick the ball
We will skip the rope
We will play outside. Be careful
We will paint and draw. We will say our prayers

Outside the pitiless sun bleaches the broken streets
The darkness drops in the evening like an iron door
The men play cards under torchlight
The women stay inside
Hell can erupt in a moment day or night

You ask for trouble if you stray too close to the wall
My father died ..feeding the birds
Mum goes in front of me to check for soldiers

For every hot-head stone ten come back
For every hot-head stone a hundred come back
For every rocket fired the drones come back

For thirteen years the roads have all been closed
We're isolated. We're denied medical supplies
Fuel and work are scarce. They build houses on our farms
The old men weep. The young men take up arms.

We're packed like chickens in this town of block cement
I get headache from the diesel. When it rains, the sewers too
I had no idea what martyrdom meant
Until my older brother.. my older brother
I'm sorry. I can't continue.

You sow the wind, you reap the whirlwind, it is said
When people know they have no future
Can we blame them if we cannot tame them?
And when their hopes and dreams are broken
And they feel they might as well be dead
As they go, will we forgive them
If they take us with them?

Stay close
Stay home
Stay calm
Have faith

With the love of our family we can rise above anything
Someday surely someone must help us
With the love of our family we can rise above anything
Someday surely someone must help us
Even now we will go to school
Even now we will dream to dream
Someday surely someone must help us

Nothing's ever simple - that's for sure
There are grieving mothers on both sides of the wire
And everyone deserves a chance to feel the future just might be bright
But any way you look at it - whichever point of view
For us to have to live like this
It just ain't right
It just ain't right
It just ain't right

We all want peace and freedom that's for sure
But peace won't come from standing on our necks
Everyone deserves a chance to feel the future just might be bright
But any way you look at this - whichever point of view
For us to have to live like this
It just ain't right
It just ain't right
It just ain't right

It's like a nightmare rose up slouching towards Bethlehem
Like a nightmare rose up from this small strip of land
Slouching towards Bethlehem

It's like a nightmare rose up from this small strip of land
Slouching towards Bethlehem

Stay close
Stay home
Have faith

I can't know what twist of history did this to me
It's like a nightmare

With the love of our family
We can rise above anything
Some day surely someone must help us...
