i remember you saying: let's run away, let’s run away from here there has to be a better place where cats are bigger than clouds and where they live forever, forever. let's find it and settle there. cats' graveyard is a place you liked to take me to we could stare for hours how furry souls rose to the heaven from between snow-white giant bones sandwiches, penknife and treasure box i remember you saying: let's run away, let’s run away from here there has to be a better place where cats are bigger than clouds and where they live forever, forever. let's find it and settle there. let's find it and settle there.

by a copper thread we all, we all vanish from here, vanish from now we become monochrome skies that carpet the horizon by a copper thread we all, we all vanish from here yesterday we shone like a constellation of supernovae for the one last night we, the wisest of all jesters burned bright and burned out, burned out our kingdoms once pure, once powerful lay in ruin, lay in ruin by a copper thread we all, we all vanish from here yesterday we shone like a constellation of supernovae for the one last night we, the wisest of all jesters burned bright and burned out, burned out it's true we've been brothers it's true we've been pure it's true we've poisoned each other and we can't find a cure we hide from the bright one from now on we do past glory slipped away once more like a thousand years ago yesterday we shone like a constellation of supernovae for the one last night we, the wisest of all jesters burned bright and burned out, burned out

how do you think? what do sleeping giants dream about? and if we wake them up, will they be pleased with it? with bodies made of light and capes made of nebulae the great ones sometimes grow tired of their celestial existence. there is no known force that can lift the giants' heavy lids. all we can do is wait for them to reappear, to rearrange. with bodies made of light and capes made of nebulae the great ones sometimes grow tired of their celestial existence.

i am, storm’s daughter tender mother devil’s lover, i have cured leg of a hunter ripped apart apart by wolves i have pulled a child from under the ice you can't fix me! how one can be so blind to tear day apart from a night and pretend it has never existed? you lose every time you pick a side black and white - are always mixed they can not be apart every child knows you kill angels the same way you kill dragons

All the shapes and All the shades All the time All day Tell me something is going to change Too long for me Too long Too long in this passenger seat All the shapes and All the shades All the time All day Tell me something is going to change All the shapes and All the shades Crossing by, chasing their own tails Tell me good is on its way between the lines caught by the riddle I’m scanning this picture through my fingers so wide-awake, no breaks! no calling off this boiling water there’s a fire, under this copper! As a model believer I’ll crawl through this path, that I don’t know the hell with all the do’s and don’ts This train is fast Before you know It’s out of sight Long gone!

Although I’m hiding It seems she has already found me Sneaked in so softly With an ice-knife she stabbed me A shard stuck in the wound and froze all life that left inside So leave it as it is Don’t try to find the answer The criminal got away And the evidence has melted. Further away from the sun Than in any other time of the year (that’s where I am) Don’t you try to track me – it’s no use I’ve lost my color and scent (cracked skin, chapped lips) None of my shallow footprints can lead you here  So leave it as it is Don’t try to find the answer The criminal got away And the evidence has melted.

With no guilt With no shame All trembling floors are waiting to be conquered You know that’s the way it has to be Not just one, but whole tree We’re gonna taste this night Lost in this fire/fire/fire One burn for each desire With no guilt Without shame All the colors of mine are changing into red let us be as one let’s get wet please pour it out/ pour it out/pour it out please pour the RED You know that’s the way it has to be Not just one, but whole tree We’re gonna taste this night Lost in this fire/fire/fire One burn for each desire The holiest of altars Calling for the feast Like in 1969, like a rocket, like a child just reach Reach/ reach/ reach for unreachable With no hesitation, no fear The holiest of altars Calling you for the feast The holiest/ the holiest /the holiest/ the …. The holiest of altars is calling I’ll drink all this water and climb all your walls I’ll shout out to father “I put my dibs on the second floor, love the wind love the storm” While breathing the void (I’m) blown by this call I’m not out of my mind I’m out of my soul

A tiny little mark is getting smaller every day. It will vanish soon and leave a scab, like every of its kind, every of its kind. Push, pinch, lash grind, pull, bash cut, stab, smash  I feel like more. Some people notice the look on my face. Some people ask who is it. and i'm unlikely to reveal. Like the truth under my sleeves. Every one of them I greet warmly. As my blood is warm too. Every one of them I greet with pleasure. The opposites are likely to attract each other, I suppose. A needle tears through flesh like a cupid's arrow pierces a heart. A needle tears through flesh it makes me shut up and smile. And it tastes like sunshine. Push, pinch, lash grind, pull, bash cut, stab, smash  I feel like more. Some people notice the look on my face. Some people ask who is it. and I’m unlikely to reveal. Like the truth under my sleeves.

about

Spiral Rzeszow, Poland

Spiral is usually defined by its listeners as a rock/post-rockish band, but their compositions are much harder to define. Their music is a fusion of genres such as post rock, dream pop, trip hop and sometimes prog metal. All that is topped with dreamy female vocals. The group has 3 long play releases on their account: Bullets (2016) Cloud Kingdoms (2014) and Urban Fable (2009). ... more
