  • tamamı akustik olan bir machine head parçası, unto the locust'tan, şöyle de bir hikayesi var;

    read there is one that is primarily acoustic.

    yeah, “the darkness within.”

    did you bring that one in?

    actually the whole premise came about from a riff that dave, our drummer, wrote. he had written this riff that i loved that had a very pink floyd vibe. i was sitting in my room playing it on guitar for like an hour and a half, just hypnotizing myself. i had just seen that movie “crazy heart” and i was singing in this croaky, cigarette and whiskey voice. i came up with this cool cadence. i didn’t have any lyrics, but i was just making up things as i went. the next day it was a miserable, rainy day. i was dropping off my son at preschool and was coming back. there was this virus going around that was killing all the oak trees. so there were all these dead or dying, leafless oak trees everywhere. it was the perfect miserable day with all these dying, dead oak trees. i was like, “okay, let’s see what happens here.” so i pulled over, pulled out my iphone, opened up my notes, and just started typing. at first it was very lovecrafty with cobwebs and whippoorwills and fog rolling over hills. i got my h.p. lovecraft out of the way, and then i went into this thing about depression, music, and how much music means to me in my life. it’s carried me through my highest highs and lowest lows. when i think of moments in my life, there’s always this soundtrack to it. it’s music – not my own music. it’s someone else’s music. i wrote for a half an hour this huge burst of lyrics and i had this other melody coming out of my head, and i wrote the chorus. i called up dave and said, “i’ve got practice right now.” it kind of changed around a little bit. phil had written this other riff that we had partially in there. then i rewrote the verses around this other riff. it’s out of left field.

  • sözleri;

    here in this darkness that i lay
    depression heavy in its way
    and how my body aches to leave
    and sing its final eulogy
    my sons i love you ever more
    and though the road back ends once more
    i see the damage that i've done
    and search for redemption
    but i am just a broken man
    who's soul cries out to understand
    how the madness shatters me
    upon the stage on bended knee
    i scream aloud at skies above
    that answer mute, bereft and loved
    i struggle not to fall from grace
    i sing the hyms of my disgrace

    we build cathedrals to our pain
    establish monuments to obtain
    freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    lest we drown in the darkness within

    misery's forgotten chords
    i strum in vain to please the lord
    but he has never answered me
    and faith has winged eternaly
    an empty man who passed along
    the woes of all religions wrong
    and now the shadow veil it falls
    hear the clarion calls
    so pray to music
    build a shrine
    worship in these desperate times
    fill your heart with every note
    cherish it and cast a flow
    cause god is in his laughing tone
    salvation is found alone
    haunted by its melody
    music, it will set you free (let it set you free)

    we build cathedrals to our pain
    establish monuments to obtain
    freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    lest we drown in the darkness within

    do do do....

    woah, woah...

    woah!!!
    music my savior!!!
    save me!!!
    music my savior!!!
    save me!!!
    music my savior!!!
    save me!!!
    music my savior!!!
    save me!!!

    we build cathedrals to our pain
    establish monuments to obtain
    freedom from all of the scars and the sins
    lest we drown in the darkness within

    we build cathedrals to our pain (woah...!!!)
    establish monuments to obtain (woah...!!!)
    freedom from all of the scars and the sins (woah...!!!)
    lest we drown in the darkness within (woah...!!!)

    do do do...
  • unto the locust'un en beğendiğim şarkısı. rob'un vokali, şarkının yükselişi ve solo mükemmelleştirmiş şarkıyı, çıkışı ayrı bir güzel.
  • unto the locust'un en sevdiğim şarkısı bu sanırım. çok damardan girmiş robert flynn. bir de böyle yer yer bi alice in chains tadı mı aldım diyim ne diyim, öyle bir şeyler. yani aslında çok alakasız aic ile falan da, işte öyle gibi de bir yandan. değil gibi de. güzel şarkı işte amına koyım.
  • ı see the damage that ı've done
    ın search for redemption

    kısmını radyoda duyup 'noluyo lan' dememle, evrenime çok zamansız giriş yapmış machine head eseri.
