Brilliant Trees…

______
Unblocking boarded up windows, of what was probably once a grow house before we lived here… light pours into the basement, and I rediscovered David Sylvian today and met Amber Asylum in my wanderings as well.
Light pours into the basement, revealing half completed paintings, forgotten art

Light pours into the basement, spilling over photographs – a mythical past

Light pours into the basement, earth smells and silence

Light pours into the basement, stillness follows….
For Your Pleasure…

David Sylvian lyrics, music, images.
Enjoy.

Pollen Path
Welcome me father

On the north shores of Lapland

Welcome me father

Who knows no name

Welcome me mother

The earth here is yawning

My body is shaking

For want of a flame
Down here

Got to laugh

The kick back is lightening

Drowning

Got to laugh

This whole thing is frightening
I follow the pollen path

The pollen path
Welcome me father

The lava is rising

Welcome me mother

And give me your name
We’ve drunk from this wellspring

Too long, too long

Dividing the hours

To measure the time
We’ve lived with this heartache

Too long, too long

Numbering

What’s yours, what’s mine
We’ve harboured this sadness

So long

Nursing a voice

To sing us our songs
Raising a voice

To sing our songs

Darkest Dreaming
Stay tonight

We’ll watch the full moon rising

Hold on tight

The sky is breaking
I don’t ever want to be alone

With all my darkest dreaming

Hold me close

The sky is breaking
I don’t ever want to be alone

With all my darkest dreaming

Hold me close

The sky is breaking


God Man
Welcome to Sun State

The language of light

The energies impulse

The loud, dark, iron

The purpose of history

In Eurasian Steppes

From threshold to threshold

Astonishment
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

God Man
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

God Man
From different maps

Dead bees on a cake

You’re sweeping the forest

Man, it’s getting late

The milkweed is growing

Through cotton grass

You borrowed the car

But you didn’t ask
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

God Man
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

God Man
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

God Man
And everything’s dark

Then you’re wrapped up

Born into brightness
You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

You’ve misunderstood the place where you stand

Brilliant Trees
When you come to me

I’ll question myself again

Is this grip on life still my own ?

When every step I take

Leads me so far away

Every thought should bring me closer home
And there you stand

Making my life possible

Raise my hands up to heaven

But only you could know
My whole world stands in front of me

By the look in your eyes

By the look in your eyes

My whole life stretches in front of me

Reaching up like a flower

Leading my life back to the soil
Every plan I’ve made ’s

Lost in the scheme of things

Within each lesson lies the price to learn

A reason to believe

Divorces itself from me

Every hope I hold lies in my arms
And there you stand

Making my life possible

Raise my hands up to heaven

But only you could know
My whole world stands in front of me

By the look in your eyes

By the look in your eyes

My whole life stretches in front of me

Reaching up like a flower

Leading my life back to the soil
