LEAVES ARE BURNING - Danny Schmidt

Hold my hand, the leaves are burning
The leaves are burning, now hold my hand
Face the breeze of pages turning
The page is turning, now hold my hand

Close my eyes to watch the ocean
I watch the ocean and I close my eyes
Rise and fall of blind emotion
I fight the notion and I close my eyes

Clench my teeth to taste tomorrow
I taste tomorrow and I clench my teeth
Take today what once was borrowed
Until tomorrow, I’ll just clench my teeth

Stuff my ears, the bells are ringing
The bells keep ringing, now stuff my ears
I look around but no one hears them
No one hears them but the damn bells still ring

Spill my lungs of dirt and fury
Cause dirt and fury have filled my lungs
Kick my feet and spit my story
Of rage and glory, come clear my lungs

Tie me down to trees and mountains
Tie me tight and tie me strong
Bring me food then bring me down
When the fire’s all cleared and the smoke’s all gone

Super Nova Cassiopiea A
Cassiopeia A is a supernova remnant in the constellation Cassiopeia and the brightest extrasolar radio source in the sky at frequencies above 1 GHz. The supernova occurred approximately 11,000 light-years (3.4 kpc) away in the Milky Way. The expanding cloud of material left over from the supernova now appears approximately 10 light-years (3 pc) across from Earth’s perspective (within the Milky Way Galaxy). Despite its radio brilliance, however, it is extremely faint optically, and is only visible on long-exposure photographs.
It is believed that first light from the stellar explosion reached Earth approximately 300 years ago but there are no historical records of any sightings of the progenitor supernova, probably due to interstellar dust absorbing optical wavelength radiation before it reached Earth (although it is possible that it was recorded as a sixth magnitude star 3 Cassiopeiae by John Flamsteed on August 16, 1680). Possible explanations lean toward the idea that the source star was unusually massive and had previously ejected much of its outer layers. These outer layers would have cloaked the star and reabsorbed much of the light released as the inner star collapsed.

Cries of Shadows (Live) - Danny Schmidt

”[…] This one’s kind of about how… as you move through life, you kind of have an evolving relationship with your own sort of shadowy dark side. It stays relatively the same, I believe, but we relate to it differently when we hit different phases of our lives.” (x)

Dark Eyed Prince - Danny Schmidt

So he swore upon the crown that he’d melt desire down
And he boarded up his windows and his eyes
But he still could hear the sound of the rain upon the ground
And he still could feel his face against the sky

The story goes
Or the way that I was told
There was a king that always felt too high
And then he fell too low

And so he called
All the wise men to the hall
And begged them for a gift
To end the rises and the falls

C’est une histoire de rêves, de fabulations, de cauchemars et d’illusions. C’est une histoire sans début ni fin, inscrite quelque part dans l’espace temps. C’est un récit de minuit, à lire pendant que certains dorment, pendant que certains rêvent. Pendant que certains cauchemardent.
