Music & Lyrics: "L'appel Du Vide" by ACTORS (It Will Come to You, 2018)

 

 

ACTORS


~~*~~



Under a layer of broken bone
Reaching out
Into the shadows
Like a razor cutting through the fold
Sliced out
Into the shadows

Your lips are cold 100 years
Frozen deep inside your fear
A touch of stone, my disease
Buried deep inside of me

It's a call of the void
Close to the edge
Your hand on the switch


Close your eyes, you’re on your own
Only worse
Into the shadows
There's a crack and it makes you crawl
Head first
Into the shadows

Your lips are cold 100 years
Frozen deep inside your fear
A touch of stone, my disease
Burning deep

Close your eyes, you’re on your own

It's a call of the void
Close to the edge
Your hand on the switch



~~*~~
I remember studying calculus deep into the night
while in college.
2, 3, sometimes 4 in the morning.
I'd have the radio on.
The DJs back then, working the graveyard shift,
would often get very creative with
their playlists, diving deep into
B sides and the like.
Often they'd create this deep, dark vibe
much like this excellent tune by ACTORS.
It made for perfect studying music,
the techno night beating away;
and, as it turned out,
providing a poignant and rare good memory
from that decade.
