CYR // LYRICS

FRAGMENTS FORM THE MIND
SHADOWS HOLD THE MIST
FRACTURED AS THIS WISH
SHATTERED I RESIGN
WE’RE ON THE VERGE, WE’RE ON THE VERGE
OF SACRED DAWNING AND SLOE-SLOE EYES

SAY, I DONE TOLD YOU
SAY HOW I TRIED, TOO
WHERE YOU’VE WROUGHT
FROM CREATION’S CROWN
SAY, DIRE WARNING
STARE DOWN YOUR MASTERS
WITH THE PROMISE OF
ONE AND WHAT YOU ARE
WERE ON THE VERGE

TANGENTS VEX THE WHORL
THE VOID ARRIVES, THEN LEAVES
RETURNING
RETURNING A KISS
FOR LOVERS BUILT THE DREAM

DID THE TIMES, WIND
DID THE CROWD, KIND
APING YOUTH, WISE
EVER LOST, IDES
‘MIDST THE CHAFF, AS MEEK
AND THOSE WEAK, AS SAND
TURNING GLASS UPSIDE DOWN
FOR THE HOURS SHOULD THEY PASS

  1. Jimmy Chamberlin can absolutely let it rip, has an unmistakable playing style, and is one of the best drummers of the last 30 years. Billy can shred your face off when he wants to, but is a pretty terrible singer by professional standards. And so the decision is to release a vocal-driven synth track with a drum machine? Jesus Christ, Billy, just get out of your own way.

    In the past, his songwriting was good enough that it was still excusable, but this is boring and a massive waste of talent. The band has tried to play this off as "moving forward," but this is not that: this is some cheesy disco shit like "Anaise!," combined with the motif from the Adore era. I've heard worse, but for a band capable of so much, I'm just constantly disappointed. And I'm not a straight-laced Siamese Dream fanboy, either: Glass and Ghost children off "Machina" is one of my favorite songs, period. The song writing/decision making is just so bad since at least Teargarden, and realistically started deteriorating long before that.
