about

"I feel that this music would be at its best, when listening to at a dark (living) room, one fading light at some corner and people just holding their last drinks of the day, while listening to music and staring in to the darkness." // Mielikuvituksen melodiat mielikuvituksenmelodiat.blogspot.fi/2014/07/riky-dissolution-2014.html

Track Name: Dead Flower
You look pale today
Unravel those roots
Catiously
All the fallen leaves
Detached with glue
I’m not uptight

And the gardener will never know
Oh no she will never know

That dried ground
Drown it for me
Swirl it down
Pathetic little jar
Stop staring at me
I’m not cracking

And the gardener will never know
Oh no she will never know
Track Name: Rooming
I stick around so immersed
Like a dead flower on the street
Certain me became doubtful
Will you ever play out your role

I saved the letters that you never sent
I answered every call you never dialed
I waited by the door times you never came
I miss every fight we never ever had

Denial is just another way
To absorb it all
Why did hope escalate
When limerence met loss

I saved the letters that you never sent
I answered every call you never dialed
I waited by the door times you never came
I miss every fight we never ever had
Track Name: Desolation
It’s perfect the way we hug
And it’s perfect the way we kiss
No it’s not
Yes it is

It sure is a treat to be here
Even though I’m somewhere else
No I’m not
Yes I am

I love you more than a child love its mentally stable mother
I love you more than the constant blowing through the trees
I even love you more than I love you
Track Name: Dissolution
Apparently this is the most dangerous room in the whole world
The chestnut white walls with all their cracks
I’ve realized it’s never a long way to go when going further
‘cus it’s never any further than a thought away

I watched myself getting spilled all over the floor
I watched myself getting spilled all over the floor
I watched myself getting spilled all over the floor
I watched myself getting spilled in such a joy
Track Name: mo(u)rning
Aaaaaaaaaa
Aaa
Track Name: Zebra
I’m like a tired horse
That lost its way
Here upon the savanna
There are so many lions
Unsettling times
I did what I could
To confuse them
Running over the savanna
Needing a way to cope
Got myself some stripes

Now I look just like a zebra
To them I’m just an amoeba
They stare nervously
Misunderstandning me

How many times
Did I not
Think about the decision
Why run far away
Trembling times
Back in the shade
In solitude
Lying on the hillside
Extending with these stripes
Cried out my eyes

Now I look just like a zebra
To them I’m just an amoeba
They stare nervously
Misunderstanding me

I am so sorry
That I didn't understand
Now when I do
I can not stand myself
I am so sorry
That I didn't understand
Now when I do
I can't stand myself

Now I look just like a zebra
To them I’m just an amoeba
They stare nervously
Misunderstanding me
I’m just an imbalanced libra
In the disguise of a zebra
They joke awkwardly
Cutting deeper into me
Track Name: Labelled
Tiny tiny
Gigantic floor
Waving curtains
I don’t wanna eat no more
With my maze did I amaze you
Are there no alternatives
To this cookie-cutter routine

In a locked room, in a locked room
These little pills they make me sigh
A volunteer, a volunteer
To chemical lobotomy

Massive massive
Infinite ceiling
My absent thoughts
Threated like abcess
Such a headheach, such a dry mouth
Drowsy all day
But give me an alternative
And I’ll take it in a blink

In a locked room, in a locked room
These little pills they make me sigh
A volunteer, a volunteer
To chemical lobotomy
Track Name: Happy
This morning when I woke up
I was somewhat different
The fact that I was cut off
Bothered me none
With them I drank their coffee
Rejected no more
Then we all had a laugh
At my stomach each

Lalalalalalala
I’m so happy
Lalalalalalala

With light enthusiasm
We discussed some news
All that angled nonsense
Bothered no one
We went out and got wasted
The highlight of our existence
And the thoughts became so thoughtless
I laughed ‘til I cried

Lalalalalalala
I’m so happy
Lalalalalalala
Track Name: The Lightest of Thoughts
Since when did suicide equal failure
When it’s just a different way to say goodbye
Since when did suicide equal sadness
I seem to be the only one that smiles

Since when did suicide equal ill
When every single day is so still
Since when did suicide equal wekness
I have never felt so determined

Suicide
Oh suicide
Track Name: Stains
I am I am
On the floor at 5 a.m.
Cold and shiny
So cold and shiny
I have I have
These stains
Right here unto my skin
I have I have
I have I have

Isolation equals safe
Calmed at last
A smile fell over me
Such a beautiful windowpane

I am I am
Anemic and consumed
Red and hazy
So red and hazy
I have I have
These stains
Smothered over my brain
I have I have
Made up my mind

Isolation equals safe
Calmed at last
A smile fell over me
Such a beautiful windowpane
Isolation equals safe
Calmed at last
So moved by the weather
When did I start to feel so warm
