Satellites contain us
Traffic lights control us
Rockets shoot us up into the stars
Rockets shoot us up into the stars

Letters keep us posted
Numbers calculated
Nothing picks us up when we are down
Nothing picks us up when we are down

Complement the atmosphere
Fill the ground with all our tears
Dry them up to make it clear
We do no wrong
Complement the atmosphere
Fill the ground with all our tears
Dry them up to make it clear
We do no wrong

Strange surrounds each corner
Stains pollute the water
Something for us all to think about
Something for us all to think about

Summer sun protects us
Winter rains torment us
Now it seems to me we can't be free
Now it seems to me we can't be free

Close the door before it's late
We were born to love and hate
Turn it down for our own sake
We do no wrong
You fill your ears with every note
Direction seems the only hope
Its crowded, let's create now
We do no wrong

Common sense protects us
Everything affects us
To the outside light it's paradise
To the outside light it's paradise

I can dig it!  Can y'all dig it?
I like it!
Nice but wish they pushed the vocals more to the front.
This always catches me by its familiarity and newness; the mark, I think, of a timely, talented composition. I dig how it bloody well jams
"Common sense protects us
Everything affects us
To the outside light it's paradise
To the outside light it's paradise"

The inside light is paradise ...  {#Sunny}

That would be the Muslim Brotherhood primarily in terms of shear numbers of followers and geographic coverage — all countries in N. Africa and extending into the Arabian Peninsula and beyond have large and active MB populations.  In fact, the PLO was directly sponsored by the MB, and Hamas is believed to have a strong relationship with Palestinian Muslim Brothers.  Believe it or not, Hitler made arrangements w/ the MB, and various Muslim groups throughout N. Africa, the Balkans, and into the Near East in order to assure a virulent anti-Jewish land bridge to the Gulf and Mid-East oil, as well as complete encirclement of the Mediterranean — N. Africa was an essential component of his Third Reich due to the critical role energy played in his dreams of world domination.

To this day, close scrutiny of the MB's transnational agendas reveals heavy-handed, top-down, anti-Israeli, retrograde Islamist dogma that notably isn't so different from the likes of Egypt's military juntas except for the anti-Israeli retrograde Islamism.  A broader search for Islamo-fascists touches Saudi Arabi, Kuwait, Bahrain, and the UAE amongst others — they sport "governments" and petro industries that exist to marshal resources (labor and oil) for the sole benefit of a handful of sheiks and princes — this side of the coin was/is allied w/ the British & Americans (Aramco) during the war.  Prescott Bush, father of George HW Bush, was at the top of the OSS (predecessor to the CIA) at this time as well as being the president of an international bank (name escapes me at this time) that directly loaned money to the Nazis and financed said Allied leaning oil sheiks.  That oil relationship continued w/ GW Bush (hello Kuwait) and remains today.  That is modern Islamo-fascism in a nutshell — it started after WWI and today is much closer to home than many realize.

Saudi Arabi is the official custodian of the Islamic faith, and for reasons of expediency, they relied upon the Wahabis to prop them up during the war.  The House of Saud has been unsuccessful in bottling up the Wahabis' extreme brand of Islamism.  The 9-11 terrorists were primarily Saudis, and all were disciples of Wahabism.  That hyper conservative, retrograde view of Islam has now spread to Al Qaeda, and we know the current sadness that includes ISIL, which may not be overtly fascistic, yet is keenly aware of and fond of petro-dollars.  Ain't Islamo-fascism great??
Familiar chord progression - Is this Kent's song in English?
 
That chorus:

Complement the atmosphere
Fill the ground with all our tears
Dry them up to make it clear
We do no wrong

Complement the atmosphere
Fill the ground with all our tears
Dry them up to make it clear
We do no wrong


Sounds a whole lot like the melody on George Michael's "Careless Whisper":

I'm never going to dance again
These guilty feet have got no rhythm
Though it's easy to pretend
I know you're not a fool

I should have known better than to cheat a friend
A wasted chance that I've been given
So I'm never going to dance again...
The way I danced with you
 
 
I like this band, I have no idea who they are but I must like them because I have them in my library!{#Lol}

Love this song! {#Umbrella}


nice!

Nobody likes - please excuse the phrase, I know it tends to dismiss the humanity involved - "collateral damage" but please give me some other options for dealing with the situation that involves:
+ Islamo fascusts living among populations who continue to plot destructive acts against any and all - including their fellow Muslims - in order to move forward their goal of global jihad
+ Governments that - for their own domestic purposes - are happy to excepts billions upon billions of aid - of all types - yet refuse to move decisively against said Islamo-fascists (and in fact include high level officials who cooperate with and/or protect these people.

Are choices are:
+ Invasion and occupation as we tried and mostly or completely failed to do in Iraq and even Afghanistan - with massive negative repercussions for years to come - and massive loss of life of the occupied peoples. (the Bush approach)
+ Enhanced diplomatic efforts stepped up humanitarian and educational aid, assistance to local leaders, training police, accompanied by surgical strategic strikes at the leadership and logistical apparatus of said Islamo fascist groups (the Obama approach)
+ Bring everyone home, close our eyes and hope for the best (the Ron Paul approach)

 
What in the hell is an Islamo-fascist?  Spend some time with a history book, encyclopedia or dictionary for goodness sake!  Keep spreading the culture of fear for profit.  
First post in over a year.
This band is 2 for 2 so far with tunes I've heard from them. Really liking this.
God, please save us from the whiny-voiced profoundo-wannabes.

I hope folks try to upload Anathema again.  Or, please do me a favour, and SPAM the board with a CD recommendation or two. :-)

This is a very good observation.  I'm a HUGE Anathema fan, as well as PT.  I uploaded some Anathema, but it got insta-sorryed, so I don't think Bill approves of the sound.

 
"insta-sorryed"? That's a new verb on me, though I think I've got the meaning and it's a nice contraction. Another neologism for our fast-moving Internet lingo :o)

Particularly for the guitar sound, this reminds me of a band called Anathema, who have toured with Porcupine Tree a couple of times. A lot better than Coldplay IMO.

Sweet...yet another PC spin-off.  How many ARE there anyway? {#Cool}
 
PC spin-off?  Penzance, Cornwall?

He's in tune and reaches the high notes, so I reckon he can sing, and it's definitely a Coldplay-esque sound (I've just been listening to some CP on iTunes and thought this was CP at first). No' bad - 7 from the Nottingham jury.

Hey, what a nice song!! Never heared this before!
Haunting piano melody.

I also hear a bit of Radiohead and ColdPlay which are both worthwhile listens.

Hmmm. . . how do we know that Coldplay didn't steal their chops from Thirteen Senses? 

{#Think}

A most excellent track, like *some* of Coldplay's! (no more, no less)

It's too late.
** I think they might mature lyrically -- not so melodramatically negative (always a mark of young writers.)
** lol yes cuz the young have the market cornered on observing that life ain't all sunshine and lollipops. I like these guys - sure they sorta sound like a lot of sorta sounding sounds; oh well, still find myself humming along.

I like the composition, just not the production. Wish the nice piano motif hadn't been spoiled by the predictable Creed-like steady bass/drum arrangement. It was almost original sounding. I think they might mature lyrically -- not so melodramatically negative (always a mark of young writers.)
a maid a man needs a maid a maid a man needs a maid can't get this out of my head....

not always. . . go back & look @ the comments for RL Burnside, pretty positive, but I agree, @ times, itd be best if people kept their opinions to themeselves (like me, right now for example!)
