Parallel Universe

disc one - remixture

intro

Next up is a, a band that formed in Australia back in 1980, and they've evolved since then. They're not your usual pop-rock band. As a matter of fact, this band's music is much more rich and detailed and nuanced as you'll soon find out. They've been recording their new album which is called "After Everything Now This." It's been in the works for the last couple of years, and it's a great treat to welcome, for the first time, The Church.

 

seen it @ the feelmore [Seen It Coming]

Hey man, think it through now
Why don't you stay for a while
Eve and Aurora gonna come on over
Know they'll make you smile

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
And I got mine

Yeah
You ain't gonna tell me that you were a saint
Every time you two were apart
You blew your chance
So face the music and dance

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
I got mine
Got mine
I got mine

You should've seen it coming
You've got your broken heart
And I feel fine (feel so fine)
Yeah (feel so fine)
(feel so fine)
(feel so fine)

 

stay all night (kings mix) [Song For The Asking]

[rev. May 31, 2010]

(I am a sailor...did not find me)

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know where you go
I don't know, I don't know why I loved you so
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
(It stayed it stayed with me all all night
It stayed it stayed with me all all night)

I don't think, I don't think ever been to the brink
I don't think, I don't think I'll have another drink
You said it was enough
Then you called my bluff

You said it was too hard
You took out your trump card
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
(It stayed it stayed with me all all night
It stayed it stayed with me all all night
It stayed it stayed with me all all night)

I don't care, I don't care, I don't care where you are
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care who you are
You said it was too hard
You took out your trump card
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
(It stayed it stayed with me all all night
It stayed it stayed with me all all night)

I don't guess (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
The answer will be yes (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
I don't guess (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
You can't (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
I don't guess (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
You can't (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)
(It stayed it stayed with me all all night)
The answer will be yes (it stayed it stayed with me all all night)

 

radiant 1934 remix [Radiance]

[rev. May 31, 2010]

[Foreign radio transmissions throughout - Russian?]

When a cloudy morning rain touched our little town
Three small sisters and a friend walking in the fields
A strange light in the sky blotting out the sun
Whatever happens next changes all our lives

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind
Said our lady has a message for mankind
Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin's radiance

(Radiance)

And the icons in the church crying tears of blood
The water in the wells curing all who drank
Pilgrim lunatics arrive in a ragged stream

In the fields around the village sprang up tents
People from the outside world want more evidence
Four tired children questioned day and night
All they can remember is her blinding light

So the circus drifts away and the noise dies down
Life goes on as before all the people came
And the children never say what her message was

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind
Said our lady has a message for mankind
Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin in her radiance

(Radiance
Ra-radiance)

(Radiance
Ra-radiance)

 

replated/chromium [Chromium]

[rev. May 31, 2010]

Silver needles
Golden eagles
Frightened faces
Basket cases
Jags and riches
Queens and witches
Electric mantras
And tight-fitting dreams

Never been so high

Gilded flowers
Long-lost hours
Morning programs
With fake suntans
Meet a maniac in the cul-de-sac
Otherwise it's this ennui

All this waiting brings me down
All those colors bring me around

Never been so high ([L] Never been so high) ([R] Chromium platin')
Never been so high ([L] Never been so low) ([R] All this waiting brings me down)
Never been so high ([L] Never been so high) ([R] Suffocatin')
([L] Never been so low) ([R] All those colors bring me around)

Broken records
Faded labels
Songs to sing to
When you were young
A tattooed pierced arm
Fresh and perfumed
Switch your prison
Fly away

All this waiting brings me down
All those colors bring me around

Broken records

Never been so high (Never been so high) (gilded flowers, long-lost hours)
Never been so high (Never been so low) (morning programs with fake suntans)
Never been so high (Never been so high) (meet a maniac in the cul-de-sac)
(Never been so low) (otherwise it's this ennui)

And jewels on your fingers
Tears in your dresses
Fabulous mansions
And damp little rooms
This one will shrink me
This one will grow me
Cue into sleep
And reality looms

[Closes with repeated line too distorted to make out - could be "this ennui"]

 

distant x unseen [Invisible]

[rev. Aug. 27, 2013]

Sitting in the shadows and the evening oscillating
Feeling light and feeling like it's a-gonna change
Hoping for a moment for some gentle consolation
Waiting at the station where the treats are out of range

She's sitting in a carriage being jostled by the motion
Overhearing conversation, the grinding of the steel
Scenes fly past the curtains that the darkness paints uncertain
And memories are meaningless, her motives are concealed

Through countrysides and mountains and the village by the ocean
Where the stranger's waiting for her in the plushness of his car
Winding and rewinding, pushing all directions
Till the limit of implosions, which is never very far

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

Out there in the distance the horizon meets resistance
The summer falls down drunken on the longest of the days
Rushing past the ruins of the churches and the Porsches
Reflected in the mirrors and the echoes in the haze

He drums impatient fingers on the chrome and on the leather
Running through the reasons in the corners of his mind
Sifting tiny diamonds on his shaky mental islands
Where he often claims asylum from the structures left behind

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

The wind blows through the headstones and the milestones making music
The melody reminds us of the girl still far away
Asleep in her compartment, dreaming of the darkness
As the train speeds on regardless to the approaching day

(All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me
All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me
All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me)

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

 

let y=x (survival mix) [Numbers]

[rev. May 31, 2010]

I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna be by myself
Be left on a shelf

Oh yeah
Your one and only life
Ripped from the earth with these bare hands
You dare
Question the ritual
Despite continual
Threats of "gonna get you all"

Nightmare
We ride for miles and miles
Following the howling of our prey
Out there
Reload our yellow rigs
Scrambling for shelter
Dig a void, decay

1 for the cockpit blues
2 for the Panzer crews
3 for the vast and molten sky
4 for the failed talks
5 for the knives and forks
6 for forbidden kicks
All the yobbos in the sticks

1 for the flaming sun
2 for the location
3 for the martyrs and the stars
4 for the wind and sand
5 so you understand, so you understand

[Many overlapping voices from here on]
[Female] Mac AV system overload, the audio process... ...the data in time, time, time, time...
[Kilbey] One, two, three, four
[Female] Enjoy that?
[Kilbey] I did. Did you?
[Female] Yeah, I did.
[???] Soon as the ???
[Kilbey] You should be able to tell that...
[Female] Well, now I know.
[Kilbey] And now you're going to notice it...

[Female] How could he survive for that long?
[Kilbey] Magazines, education
[Female] How could he survive for that long?
[Female] How could he survive for that long?
[Female] How could he survive for that long?

Are you the same ??? [0:34]
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

Are you the same ??? [0:51]
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

Are you the same ??? [1:26]
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

When you're gone
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
When you sleep
Watch you sleep
When you smile
When you're gone
No more tracks for me to run on
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
When you sleep
Never know the vigil I keep
To watch you sleep
When you smile

Watching, we've been watching from a second in our century
As the minutes gain momentum like a bird, man
Watching, we've been waiting
For the other worlds to sync up to our own

Reaching, we've been reaching through the nonexistent surface
That separates our doubles from the soul man
Trying, we've been trying
To make contact with night friends all alone

Night friends
Night friends

('ove man)

(Ahhh, 'ove man)
Alright

But sometimes hate is better
You can't keep out the killers with love, man)

down: nostalgia and everything after [After Everything]

[rev. Aug. 27, 2013]

Now that it's over I find myself leaving
The sound permeating all directions at once
I never said goodbye to the family, lovers
Brothers and daughters, the rest of the bunch

It seems so strange that the things I was chasing
Have all evaporated like a distant dream
Petty ambition, petty obstruction
Something in between

(After the after everything, after the after everything now this)

Here is a child playing in a garden
Here is an old man with a broken heart
Here comes a train to take you away
It all goes round and round and comes back to the start

I was never really sure what I was waiting for
When the moment came I was looking away
Obsessed with the past, scared of the future
Never took the time to be here today

(After the after everything, after everything now this)

After everything now this happens
It's not a grand illusion, it's a stupid little trick
The show must go on, these people have paid
You're standing in the wings feeling kinda sick

Never really sure what you were waiting for
When the moment came you just couldn't choose
The fog sweeps down over the marine city
Standing backstage trying to pull on your shoes

(After the everything now this, after everything now this)
