Band of the Month : Porcupine Tree (Part 2)

Every  Tuesday I  focus on a band or artist and play a music video featuring them. This month we listen to Porcupine Tree, an English progessive rock band.

About today’s video: “The video is dedicated to Arielle Daniel, a girl who was killed by a train in November 12, 2005, at the age of seventeen, together with a friend of her, Heather Bates, who was fourteen years old. Arielle was a big Porcupine Tree fan who founded the band’s MySpace Group. The accident occurred when the girls were taking photos on the rails. Both were from Oak Creek, Wisconsin. During a show at Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in June 2, 2007, her family were present among the audience, so Steven Wilson paid tribute to them, saying “This is for Arielle” just before the band played “Blackest Eyes” which was her favourite song. That night, “Way Out of Here” was performed without showing the video on the screen. The girl in the video, has gotten positive feedback both from Arielle Daniels father, and from her friends, who thanked her, and said she did a good job.” Information: YouTube (To listen to Blackest Eyes click on the word above, it is a link)

This Tuesday’s song: Porcupine Tree – Way Out Of Here

Genre: Progressive Rock

Lyrics:

Out at the train tracks
I dream of escape
But a song comes onto my iPod
And I realize it’s getting late Lees voort “Band of the Month : Porcupine Tree (Part 2)”

when

brooding in the shadows, words swimming in my mind
this ephemeral silence outside do not reflect in kind
the maelstrom of words, turning tides to storms within

epiphanies evade me as I contemplate the means
in which to answer the questions left in my dreams
these harbingers whispering like leaves in the wind

the solace is sweet only in the dead of sleep
when dreams do not come at the bitter hours of night
how can I dance to this languorous tune
that left me beating at my own heart.

when? A simple question
when, when will I see her again…

fernweh

fernweh

melancholy seeps through my cracks
drips through the windows of my soul
strips me bare to the marrow in my bones

i crave that journey to that terra incognito
that never-seen-before place I yearn for
that breath of mystery that lies before me

i am like the donkey being led with a carrot
ever following this dream
and this dream is like a fey-light
just as i grasp it at last
in fades away

i am in a state of fernweh,
everseeking my next home…

fernweh (German) (n) a longing to travel, missing a place you have never been

thin line
between the seen and unseen
where sight and blindness combine

awake and asleep

thin line
a threshold
towards discord or harmony
truth or mythology
