I listened to the other recording of MDS. It's definitely cracks appear.

Any thoughts?


I love the moment when you aren't sure what exactly are you hearing and the two possibilities are completely different. :lol:

By the way I agree that it's probably the "cracks appear" one. :)

Hammer & Tongs

There's a fire in the city
And it's burning it's out of control
There's a fire in the city and I give you my heart and my soul
Make me cry

Give me a chance and I'll take it
Show me some love and we'll make it

Baby we're right where we belong
And we're going at it hammer
Hammer & Tongs
Hammer & Tongs

Now the sun rises over the city
And the stars are all gone
Bye bye
The pavement is burning their feet
And the fire rages on
Between you and I
I've gotta say this is a great night
Don't be alarmed by the daylight

Open Fire

I don't waste my time on daydreams
I’m living my nightmare
Every semblance of hope in his life
Surrenders to despair
So I embrace the darkness
Cause it’s always there

Give me an open fire
Blazes in your eyes
Burns right through the night (open fire)
I could live nocturnally
I could live without daylight (open fire)
Give me a hug on a sheepskin rug
Tell me that we’ll never part (open fire)
Open fire, on my heart (open fire)

The world has got a dark side
Every day it turns
But the sun only shines on occasion
And when it does it burns
I am not enlightened
The moment it returns

Mudslide

This ain't no double entendre
This ain't no euphemism
This is real life
I'm describing a natural disaster
Mud flow

Land mass shifting beneath our feet
Houses floating on down the street
Debris, wreck and ruin
Bobbing along like butter would not melt
Deluge neverending
And the raindrops never cease to pelt

Mudslide
It's hard to see the upside of a mudslide
I simply can't abide this deadly mudslide
Way down deep inside I hate you
Mudslide

Neighbours thus far I've managed to avoid
Flounder as they're drawn
Deep down in the watery void
Gesticulating wildly
But it's awkward so I wave ta-ta
The distant cries of anguish
Plays havoc with my Cha Cha

Somewhere under the mudflow
Way down low there lies
My dear beloved gazebo
Do you know what this is?
It's a fucking mudslide

Is there a rule against posting/attempting lyrics from other songs now that the album has 'leaked'?

I just really like Wheels of the Machine and thought it was nice lyrically haha

Thank you, Impromptu! I can't wait to see lyrics from the whole album (especially Mighty Wings and Wheels of the Machine)!

I even after hearing the whole album, I still think that "Do you know what this is? It's a fucking mudslide!" is one of the best lines of LOOK. ;)

The beginnings of "Mighty Wings"

Down comes the sword
The end has begun
The seas [something something] ... my work is done

Out goes the fire
In come the choir
Why must I leave [live?] when my dreams expire?

[chorus]
God-speed my friend
Open up your Mighty Wings and fly

@Luke
The first line in Mighty Wings is:

Down goes the sun
The end has begun


(Chorus)
God-Speed my friend
Open up your mighty wings and fly
This is the end
The universe has brought you here to die
?????????????????? emotion
??????????????????????????

(Second Verse)
Ravens in flight
I bark and I bite
??????????????
I am enraged
The beast is uncaged
Fire at will
?????? engaged

Mighty Wings

Down goes the sun
The end has begun
A season with Eros
And my work is done

Out goes the fire
In comes the choir
Why must I live
When my dreams expire?

God speed my friend
Open up your mighty wings and fly
This is the end
The universe has brought you here to die

Give me just a sip of your potion
Let me be a drop in the ocean

Ravens in flight
I bark and I bite
I am not man
I am dynamite

I am enraged
The beast is uncaged
Fire at will
Enemy engaged

At the start of the second verse of Mudslide;

"Neigh-bours...." I keep thinking next of "everybody needs good neigh-bours"...lol.

It's even pronounced in the right pitch and style of delivery. What do our Aussie Darklings here think? :)

For those who don't have access to the lyrics of the songs, I'm gonna post the lyrics, copied from the booklet of LOOK, so aim any complains at the creators of the booklets, not at me. ;)

Open Fire, Might Wings, Mudslide and Hammer & Tongs were already posted by Impromptu and Barbarian's lyrics are in the music video, so I'll post only the rest.

Last of Our Kind

We have sat like this just waiting
For their arrows to blacken the skies
Many times before
And we will again... God willing
I am honoured to have served
Alongside men who inspire defiance
Sometimes I tire of the fighting
And the killing

We are survivors
The ones left behind
Defenders of our legacy
The last of our kind

Children, we are the last of our kind
Children, we are the last of our kind
When the arrows fall like rain
We'll survive and rise again
We are the last of our kind

All the jackals and the undead just
Can't wait to wipe the last of us out
Once there were others
Like us
And then they were none
Late at night while the word is sleeping
I can hear the call of my kin
They wait for me
And when I join them
We will be forgotten

Roaring Waters

An unrelenting siege in a howling gale
Silhouettes with half pikes
On a bloody sail
A silent signal
The long ship comes to ground
See the carnage
Listen to the dreadful sound

Roaring waters
Drowning out our screams
Raoring waters
Drag away our daughters
To the sultan's harems
For sex

Contemptuous marauders
From a moorish plain
They came to plunder
Then they'll sail away again
30 down and counting
No-one left to fight
Hear the carnage
Look upon the dreadful sight

Faceless captors
Leering at their latest catch
Salivating at them
Through the serving hatch
Death, sex, poop, decks
The cloying stench of hell
Feel the carnage
Take a lungful of this dreadful smell

Wheels of the Machine

One cog connected to another
We are depending on each other
Can't make a love like this alone

All of our destinies await us
Somewhere within the aparatus
If we never let each other down
They cannot deflate us

Oh, we're more lost than we've ever been
Oh, in the wheels of the machine
On, someone get me out of here
Before I cry my eyes out again my dear

Desire burning like a fever
Too scared to operate the lever
Tell me it hurts, well I believe ya
Cos I'm hurting too
Trying to be a man
Take a care of
The love of my life
Her name is Sarah
Because I promised a world like this one
Only fairer

Sarah O'Sarah

I love you but you don't believe in that
Some of the greatest minds
Of all time
Were convinced the earth was flat
I'll be patient, I'll be strong
Until you see you're wrong
Because I swallowed
Swallowed every lie you ever spat

Sarah, oh Sarah
Make my heart burn
I'm lost within this labyrinth
Nowhere to turn
Sarah, oh Sarah
Make my heart sing
I'm frozen in the wilderness
Please let me in

I treasure the moments you endure
Although I recognise
The good times
Are further between and fewer
I'll hold on
White knuckles
Until my backbone buckles
And you leave me
Leave me for somebody
Who is newer


When will I learn?

Conquerors

I don't even wanna know your name
After what happened last night
No I don't wanna know you name

I don't wanna know the name of this game
Don't wanna play this game
After what happened last night

A diamond is only
Some coal that's stuck to it's job
And it's getting so lonely

We were always gonna be the conquerors
We were never gonna sail back home again
The tide is so strong
So keep holding on

Sympathy is dangerous
In the wrong hands
In the wrong light
On a warm summer night

Sumpathy is dangerous
In the wrong heart
In the wrong place
At the wrong time

A jewel is only
Some coal that's stuck to it's job
And it's getting so lonely

If someone could decipher what's going on during the chorus of "Messengers", that'd be great.
:lol:

It's an amazingly cool chorus, but I'll be damned if I can't understand it.

I tried my very best to decipher the lyrics to Always Had the Blues, so please don't laugh too much and just leniently correct me. :)


Always Had the Blues

I don't care if you're young and pretty
That's just youth and good jeans
I don't care if you're big in the city
Nothing at all is what that means

I don't care if you think I'm ruthless
I've got ?????? to lose
I don't care what you think the truth is
I have always had the blues

I may seem content
???????
I have always had the blues
Smiling anywhere
Bitter ????
I have always had the blues

Being loved is overrated
But sometimes ??? can only fuse
Only hate is simplicated
I have always had the blues

I don't care if you're like a flower
You don't know how ??? I need
I don't want your heaten power
All I want to do is bleed

Nice work Nerevanin. Pretty close. ;)

These here below are the official lyrics for both of the bonus tracks. I've taken them directly from the booklet that came with my Japanese release of LOOK;

Always Had The Blues

I don't care if you're young and pretty
That's just youth and good genes
I don't care if you're big in the city
Nothing at all is what that means
I don't care if you think I'm ruthless
I've got no more sleep to lose
I don't care what you think the truth is
I have always had the blues

I may seem content
I seeth and I resent
I have always had the blues
Smiling ear to ear
Bitterness and fear
I have always had the blues

Being loved is overrated
But sometimes one cannot refuse
Only hate is reciprocated
I have always had the blues

I may seem content
I seeth and I resent
I have always had the blues
Smiling ear to ear
Bitterness and fear
I have always had the blues

I don't care if you're like a flower
You do not have what I need
I don't want your healing power
All I want to do is bleed

I may seem content
I seeth and I resent
I have always had the blues
Smiling ear to ear
Bitterness and fear
I have always had the blues

Messenger

This is a message of defiance
We are a powerful alliance
And we know not surrender
Sweet liberty defenders
Against the odds
Oh we are the underdogs
Notorious
We will be victorious

Run my messenger
Run my messenger
Destiny is calling and now we must respond
We will fight unto death and beyond
Messenger run like the wind

The weaponry you're brandishing
Can't match the brute force that is deep within
The illusion of your power
That makes the weak among us cower
Is little more than a spell
That breaks the day we send you to hell
We will battle when and where you choose
Dispatch as many as you wish to lose

Run my messenger
Run my messenger
Destiny is calling and now we must respond
We will fight unto death and beyond
Messenger run like the wind

I'm haunted by a vision
Of the day the outlaws came
They're burning down my village
So I reach into the flame
And pluck from the embers
A smouldering sword
Fighting injustice and fear is its own reward

Run my messenger
Run my messenger
Destiny is calling and now we must respond
Run my messenger
We will fight unto death and beyond
Run like the wind
Run like the wind
Messenger run like the wind

Thanks for the lyrics, Dave! I knew that there was something odd about "that's just youth and good jeans". :D
