"Dissolve" as written by and Elvis Costello....
Can you see me going down
I am screaming out loud
And the fear of god is in me now
Dissolve

In the moonshine
I leave no trace
My visions have gone
Far away from this place

They've dissolved
Can you see me going down
I am screaming out loud
And the fear of god is in me now

Dissolve
Dissolve
Dissolve

    General CommentDissolve is awesome, for it hooked me to gothic music. Switchblade (Susan Wallace and Tina Root) took dreamy, dark visual imagery & timeless romance mixed with classical, and layered them over industrial and electronica beats to create their unique tapestry. And you will see and feel this in Dissolve. If you've never heard it i would suggest checking it out.

    General CommentClown is another switchblade hit!!! It is sooooooo awesome! If you are a true goth fan, you must check Switchblade Symphony out. Their music is uncomparable to any other:)

    General Commentit could be about how she fears christianity or fears god himself and tries to remain sinless...

    General CommentIt could be that she is dying, and is afraid of God's judgement or something..idk I'm just guessing. It sounds like perhaps she is in pain, but in music it's usually all metaphorical sorts of pain. Once again, just guessing.. -_-;;
