"Tone Poem" as written by and Casey Spooner Warren Fischer....
In the sanctuary
Of private rhetoricy
When a bustling crowd intrudes
Where rival ship meets no incentive
To impale its reckless course
(1, 2, 3, 4)

Where all is lulled
To peace and quiet
Is of all places
The most appropriate
To illuminate

The sparkling fires of love
And receive in turn the electro-darts
Of sweet devotion

Sparkling fires

    General CommentThe back story of the creation of this song does make it more intriguing. Thanks for sharing that. As far as the music is concerned, there is no doubt the biggest influence on this track has to be Brian Eno's 'The Big Ship' from his 1975 album "Another Green World".

    General Commenta minimal electronic ballad written around lyrics Casey found handwritten inside the cover of a 1895 physics textbook.

    spooky that these words are so ancient, its sorta a tribute to some random individual who has been dead for 100 years. amazin idea

    General CommentBreathtaking song, to think the lyrics lay for years undiscovered makes it so timeless, mysterious..this track is elegant and mesmerising.

    General CommentThe lyrics are just slightly off. Its RETIRACY not rhetoricy. The words sound the same but they mean two different things. This word means retirement but is no longer used. Its kind of like conspire=conspiracy, retire=retiracy. The way it is used in the context of the song is PERFECT!
    Its not impale it is IMPAIR its reckless course. Those are the only two mistakes. The song with these slight adjustments is about meditation.
