A morbid beauty
Glows in resonation
Mercurial signs they read
Make real our minds True fascinations
For now we're rolling
And kinda golden
As time keeps folding We're old when our poor souls depart
Whereas cold cruel jokes now make you cry One day you'll take them in your stride
All of the time we've resided here
You'll see our chalices rise With ever endless tears
And illusions they fly But someday soon will clear
Just sit back and recline I'll guide you through the years
Through the future years
As they'll soon appear
Someday all too near
Now the distance clears
Bad ways which rule all the ways we go
Through black and the gloom
Consecutive days and plain afternoons
The things in life They pass the time While those all around are bored
Though we come down in real demise
Trek through all of the feelings with no tears in eyes
Kept fear veiled so it hides
Life's never forced or dry
So there's nothing inside me I just seem alive
To the future years
As they'll soon appear
Dressed in slacks as we will
So its stars they steer
Just tie a silk sheet round your neck
And twist it till your face turns cherry red
All of the time we've resided here
You'll see our chalices rise
With ever endless tears
And illusions they fly
But someday soon will clear
Just sit back and recline I'll guide you through the years

    I listened to this song again today and I suppose I gained a new perspective on it. To me, it seems he's talking about how people change as they get older. Right now, the person he's talking about cries at other people's cold, cruel jokes. However, he says that in time she'll learn to take them in her stride. So, as people get older, they become colder to other people's feelings and their own. Somehow, this as seen as "growing wise" by many people. In reality, they're becoming hollow and ignorant, empty and selfish. They learn to disgard the pain other people feel. He's talking about aging as a process of becoming colder. And maybe this person is trying to escape all of that through suicide, hence the tying of the silk sheet around their neck. Okay, I hope that made sense. Even if it doesn't, or even if it's not what the song is about at all, at least this is a testiment to Deadsy's music that it makes you THINK and people can discuss it to no end. A truly great, forward-thinking band that's making amazing music.

    I looooove this song. I kinda think it's about him loving a girl and saying he'll be with her and guide her through her life.

    I think this song is about fate guiding us through the future. "mercurial signs they read, make real our minds true fascination". Mercurial spirits are said to rule the Tarot, a system of cards used to tell a person's future. Also, fate alone dictates our future, "Just sit back and recline, i'll guide you through the years", meaning that we should just 'sit back' and accept the future that fate deals us no matter what because we can not change it.

    Haven't any of you ever been to a nursing home or know anyone who is a NA? It's a place where you put someone to forget about them...kind of like the oubliette. I named my python cruella by the way.../

    "one day you'll take them in you're stride." omg, deadsy's lyrics seem so meaningful that you could take one line and make an entire song of what it could mean, not only that, the freaking emotion, or lack of, beaming yet quelching from a point of space in your soul to a point of time in space. "i'll guide you through the years." this is my favorite deadsy song as of this go around. If given the off chance that I could say a couple of things to the things in this band I don't think I could tell them I love them or their music even though I do. I couldn't tell them hawkwind is my favorite band and they (the apt ones) are second if not one in the same. I wouldn't tell them i love them. i wouldn't tell them i love them for their contribution to music and creating/summoning a "style" that will die with them but live on in us their prodgeny. i just don't know what I would tell them. I probably wouldn't say anything, my face would say it all i'm sure. jAy ps. sike out you muther fuking bitchettes I do Love you! AHAHAHHA MMWAHAHAH

    i honestly could be wrong, but my interpretation of this song is that its from one persons point of view ( maybe a close friend ) looking on to someone younger and seeing how they are maturing and going through the same things they did, definately maturity through age and how people change through expierience

I believe this is another amazingly on point and nuanced commentary on the insanity that follows emotionally abusive relationships. The abuser has no anxieties, no emotional pain, or salience/memory for that matter, so the survivor appears to be the crazy one, obsessed with the abuse and that buzzword that seems to ignite arguments about diagnosing people without a degree, etc. funny how you say the words domestic violence, abuse, abuse survivor and boom the subject changes. Anyways, I especially relate to her midnights becoming afternoons, complex PTSD often leads to this phenomenon, whether due to purposeful sleep deprivation by the abuser, or just hyper vigilance associated with the PTSD, along with the fear of facing people, especially your loved ones, who Never actually understand, even if they try, because all they see is you, on fire, screaming about the arsonist that no one ever sees, and who has been spreading lies about your alleged mental instability, deceptive personality, etc. the whole time. While the last thing survivors need is more blame, our society supports a narrative that blames the objectively innocent party because the blatantly guilty party has spent their entire lives fabricating a persona and we’re just being human, and human psychology is quite counterintuitive especially in the context of trauma. Look at Amber Heard. Vilified and not believed, regardless of what any abuse survivor could recognize as a fellow survivor instantly. But Johnny depp is a malignant narcissist, a man, and wealthy as all get out. It’s sick.

Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."
