Wes’s Random Weekend Theme – 09/21/12

“After all she feels numbness inside
The feeling’s gone she’s upside down
The pictures behind her closed eyes
This time you went too far…”

For an explanation of what I’m doing read this post.

This Friday’s randomness kicked up this haunting acoustic mix of Delerium’s “After All” featuring Jael.

Delerium is one of my favourite groups. They were my gateway into electronica and the reason that Goth/Industrial/EBM is some of my most listened to music today. Their ‘Karma’ album is awesome and one I list as of my top life-changing albums.

With the ‘Voice’ album they stripped off their usual musical treatment of their songs and chose a more organic accompaniment. And when it works, it really works, like here and with the acoustic rendition of  “Flowers Become Screens” with one of my favourite vocalists Kristy Thirsk.

Lyrics and much more after the jump-

Here’s the video for the original:

Lyrics-

She knows the voices in her mind
They tell her to leave
She’s tired smiling madly
Until silence becomes very silently
A noise in her mind

After all she has nothing inside
No good to give, no meaning to live
The mist engulfed tonight
Every single star

After all they shared
Could he simply say no
After all they shared
He turned away from her to go
She said she wouldn’t cry
That was really just a lie

She knows the noises in her mind
Nothings left but screaming silence
After all she feels numbness inside
The feeling’s gone she’s upside down
The pictures behind her closed eyes
This time you went too far

After all they shared
Could he simply say no
After all they shared
He turned away from her to go
She said she wouldn’t cry
That was really just a lie…

After all she’s got nothing inside
No good to give, no meaning to live
The mist engulfed tonight
Every single star

After all they shared
Could he simply say no
After all they shared
He turned away from her to go
She said she wouldn’t cry
That was really just a lie…
