Gothic Wave

Uncanny Days

Ah yes, it’s time for the second mix! It’s made out of different bands, and the overall theme is, as the title says, joyful and melodic.

I’ve always found Autumn to be a profoundly positive season, a time for new beginnings and optimism (also Halloween).

Speaking of Halloween, I’m currently working on a special mix for the occasion, and it’s going to revolve around a subgenre many of you enjoy: 90s darkwave.

The next upload is in exactly a week, next Monday.

I hope you enjoy the mix!

When I looked into your eyes
I saw the beauty in them
The only thing I’ve always wanted
Was to get lost in them

But oh, how you treated me
How dare you do this?

Was it all because of me?
Everything went to waste
All because of you
While approaching the end
Oh, I saw it all right through you

We were never meant to be
We were never meant for it
Time passes by,
And our love ceased to exist

But oh, how you treated me
How dare you do this?

Was it all because of me?
Everything went to waste
All because of you
While approaching the end
Oh, I saw it all right through you

Bring to an end
This overwhelming feeling
Of sorrow and pain.

Was it all because of me?
Everything went to waste
All because of you
While approaching the end
Oh, I saw it all right through you

I’m excited to share the first Gothic Wave’s mix — first in a line of many. VNV Nation and Assemblage 23 are both incredible acts that got me through rough times on several occasions, and the songs chosen aim to reflect that. We're all gonna make it, fam, I truly believe that :^).

You can expect a new mix twice a month, every second Monday. They’re going to alternate between mixes of two bands and mixes of several different bands. Following that pattern, the next mix is coming in two weeks & will feature multiple bands that those more melodically-inclined of you will love love!

(I got the initial idea for two band mixes from DJ Dark Modulator on YouTube. He often uploads mixes made just out of one (1) band. I thought that was a little too basic, so I doubled the number.)

If you enjoyed the mix, please like and share it with your friends, family, pets, and random passersby. I know I will.

Nicer to look at
Hygienic & clean
No unappealing extra tissues wasting in-between
Cut down time till climax
So quick it couldn't hurt
Go on
Switch off
Repeat it
Your dogma might work

Atrocity
You couldn't see
Too hideous for you but it's quite okay for me
A mutilated infancy
When will you grasp hypocrisy?

Atrocity
Dismissed, condoned
A matter of some humour
Can't compare with sharpened stones
Can't compare with dirty blades
Can't compare with filthy men
And the screaming's not the same
And the bleeding's not as red
20 minutes ripped from life
And local anesthetic fades
And cortisol is wildly rising
Outside forces own your pain
Far inside a feeling that it just won't go away
So you’re lucky that it's not at all the same

Atrocity
You couldn't see
Too hideous for you but it's quite okay for me
A mutilated infancy
When will you grasp hypocrisy?

Atrocity
You will not see
Too hideous for you but it's quite okay for me
A mutilated infancy
When will you drop your fallacy?

Solitude

Where's everybody gone?
The past is mute
And all is left undone
Where have I been?
There has been so much things to come
When I was young and cute
In the pureness of the sun

Solitude
The room will overflow
The past is mute
And all is wrapped up in a row
Where have I been?
When I was falling of the row
When I was young and cute
I have nowhere left to go

Lonely walking through the plain
Endlessness pulls on the chain
The coldest region, hottest sand
Lonely walking through the wasteland
The wasteland

Devastate
All the dreams you had before
Get lost in fate
When you see there's nothing more

You create
When it's tearing all apart
And I turn love to hate
If I had heart

Solitude
Where's everybody gone?
The past is mute
And all is left undone
Where have I been?
When I was breaking off the row
When I was young and cute
I have nowhere left to go.

I've found the Japanese lyrics in romaji, but Google translate won't work, and I have a feeling that it's better we don't understand them anyway ^-^.

Smoke in our eyes
Fire in burning fingers
Nothing but time in our minds
Like the dead
With a cry we are there
Our hands on our hearts
Protecting all we have
All we ever were

Smoke in the sky
Speaks of the coming danger
The downfall of our lives
Cut and bled
All is lost to the flames
As red fills the night
Words like ruins crumble
Words like ruins die

All things must fall
There's nothing more to say
Just as the light of day
All things must fall
We've seen it all before
The roses wilt, the heart grows cold
And we fade away

https://felixmarc.bandcamp.com

A new life is waiting
Inhale - start the breathing
Reach out for the real thing
I feel you're beginning to understand

When the world has gone to sleep
I knew that you were waiting
I've wasted my ideas
For much lesser things than this

While the morning light descends
I choose the finest hour
To harvest all your tears
For a brighter day to come

In the vacuum of time
The fear that we're creating
Is never strong enough
To scare me from staying away

Years ago I put my faith in god
Looking for comfort couldn't ask for more
Feeling protected really nothing to fear
We were together the communion of souls
Prayed in silence for a long while
And waited for answers wherever I could
But a loud voice of truth has spoke
And inside me a different heart grew

My heart is a drum machine
My heart is a drum machine
A perfect pulse computer controlled
Cold as the night within
My heart is a drum machine
My heart is a drum machine
Who needs a soul and who needs god
When your heart is a drum machine

You see my dear that's why I feel dead
Inside my heart I just have a void
But don't worry now and dance with me
The sky is falling there's nothing to fear

My heart is a drum machine
My heart is a drum machine
A perfect pulse computer controlled
Cold as the night within
My heart is a drum machine
My heart is a drum machine
Who needs a soul and who needs god

We are products of obsolescence
Left behind in the name of constant progress
Children of a dead hollow empire
Promised life of pointless surplus

Factories churning out our intention
Poison measured by the cubic meter
Breathe deep excess of our invention
Choking on the taste of our decision

Leading you single file to the gallows
Bred a legion to serve the corporation
Born to be nothing but product placement
Clamoring like infants for the decadence

Skeletons bleached out in the sunlight
When the graves have become one too many
Showing us our proud legacy
We have chosen to call a democracy

Dead Empire
One nation under fear
Freedom was just
Another word for obedience

Dead Empire
One nation under madness
We burned the world
To nothing but ashes

Dead Empire
One nation under hate
Armed with only lies
Everyone is an adversary

Dead Empire
One nation under force
Slavery is the only
Thing that's still free

Hey these may be the final words
We may ever get to say
So let's not worry about small regrets
It's too late for that anyway

Hey you eternal optimist
Have you still not had enough?
No place left to hang your trust
Shattered illusions fade to dust

If you could show me a true sign
That shining light that leads me down
A path I'd been in search of former life
I never saw but should have known

Hey you melancholy clown
Tell me how the story ends
Will it become another tragic tale
Or nothing left here to retent

An ironic twist of fate
Has carried you so far away
Yet I search the gray tomorrow
And wonder where you've gone
Some doors are better left unopened
Some things are better left unseen
Once you set it all in motion
Things will never be the same

Never be the same

https://methodcell.bandcamp.com

You can’t fake
You’ve been mass produced
Dress it up - call it cutting
Doesn’t make it new
Careful - it’s just a razor blade
You’re less Dita Von Teese and more her mothers’ hand me down

You’re a poor reflection
Imperfection
And it’ll make a senseless life
But it’s just a shame, you’re the same
And she’s your best friend

You might think
There’s no room for doubt
Strutting round in Primark glamour
With the label inside out
Careful, 'cause the truth still bites
1983 set to repeat

It can’t hurt
I don’t exist to you
Even when I kissed your brother and I didn’t think it through
Careful - it’s still a very long night
It’s bitter sweet, my claws stained with lipstick

Not sure what the lyrics are, but I like to imagine that the chorus says DARK TRAIN OF DESTINY, BIS REPETITA, BIS REPETITA

https://www.kantkino.no

Lie
You don't have to be afraid
Get down
Everybody segregate
Stand up
But be polite and modulate

Faceless combinations
Moral politicians

Run
Face the truth in disguise
Bleed
I need to be tranquilized
We need
Why we're all hypnotized

Faceless combinations
Moral politicians

When you make me the target
Fools play high with time
Free when you slowly will forget
In the history of man
A submissive nation

I know it's hard to tell how mixed up you feel
Hoping what you need is behind every door
Each time you get hurt, I don't want you to change
Because everyone has hopes, you're human after all
The feeling sometimes, wishing you were someone else
Feeling as though you never belong
This feeling is not sadness, this feeling is not joy
I truly understand. Please, don't cry now

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate;
For all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion, trying to change you

Being like you are
Well this is something else, who would comprehend?
But some that do, lay claim
Divine purpose blesses them
That's not what I believe, and it doesn't matter anyway
A part of your soul ties you to the next world
Or maybe to the last, but I'm still not sure
But what I do know, is to us the world is different
As we are to the world but I guess you would know that

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you
Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to change;
For all the hurt that you feel
This world is just illusion, always trying to change you

Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, please don't leave here
I don't want you to hate for all the hurt that you feel
The world is just illusion trying to change you
Please don't go, I want you to stay
I'm begging you please, oh please don't leave here
I don't want you to change;
For all the hurt that you feel
This world is just illusion, always trying to change you

(Desperate to win)
(You are alone now)
(But you need them)
(To face the end)

(Desperate to win)
(You are alone now)
(But you need them)
(To face the end)

(Sleep alone)
Waiting for the first light
(Dream alone)
Running through the white night
(Wake alone)
In an unfamiliar room
(Talk alone)
But the walls here aren't listening

(Sleep alone)
Praying it's the last night
(Dream alone)
Burning out the last light
(When they come) the fear's in their eyes
But there's no surprise left for you

There's no surprise left for you

(Desperate to win)
(You are alone now)
(But you need them)
(To face the end)

(Desperate to win)
So desperate to win
(You are alone now)
You are alone now
(But you need them)
You need them
(To face the end)
To face the end

So desperate to win
You wait for the end
For your downpour cloud
To drown you out

So desperate to win
While you wait for the end
For your downpour cloud
To drown you out

Daybreak, headache,
Afternoon stares.
Nightfall, no sleep,
No time to repair.

Daybreak, headache,
Afternoon stares.
Nightfall, no sleep,
Time takes its share.

(Desperate to win)
(You are alone now)
(But you need them)
(Before you)

(Desperate to win)
So desperate to win
(You are alone now)
You are alone now
(But you need them)
You need them
(To face the end)
To face the end

We stay together, together in my dream
When we were closer love was to be seen
Yeah I can feel you, hear your distant voice
From another world love was our choice

When I think about you, when I close my eyes
I can see your smile, I feel you nearby
When I think about you...
Then I recognize how much I love you

Miles from nowhere, nowhere where you are
This lonely highway my thoughts escape so far
Another world another life is in my head
Through all that distance it's true what I said

When I think about you, when I close my eyes
I can see your smile, I feel you nearby
When I think about you...
Then I recognize how much I love you
