Music Monday - Lofticries by Purity Ring


Happy New Year internet pilgrims!!! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a good start of the year.

I'm sorry I've gone M.I.A. (missing in action) on you. Life has become a little too complicated and something had to give. Unfortunately, that tends to be all the things you do to enjoy yourself. It just doesn't seem fair, does it? Moving on swiftly before I start whinging... I'm happy to be back. Herray!! Run for cover everybody. :)

I heard of Canadian electronic music duo Purity Ring through BBC Radio1 and fell in love with them. If you don't love their otherworldly sound and poetic lyrics, you have to at least appreciate how weird their music videos are. Love them! But then again, I'm a weirdo with a club badge. 

A word of warning: don't listen to this song if you're feeling as grey as the Lancashire weather outside my window. It might not do you any good. Purity Ring is good, but their songs are also very moody. 

OUT OF CURIOSITY: This particular video sparked an interesting argument on YouTube about what it's suppose to mean. Some reasoning that it talks about how we turn a blind eye to situations we need to act upon, others just branding it plain weird, and a third group saying "shut up and enjoy the song". What do you reckon?

LYRICS...

LOFTICRIES
by Purity Ring


Bring, bring the thunder 

And the loud, loud rain
Lead our woes asunder
'Neath the proud, proud veins



Of traits that bleed the gunmen 
Of our pumping earthly hearts
Ween our joys in plunder
Feel our shining teeth
Bet our hold on happiness



Bead-weighted chests with lofty cries
Lofty cries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs



You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us trip on each other's side
Dear brother collect all the liquids off of the floor
Use your oily fingers
Make a paste, let it form



Let it seep through your sockets and earholes
Into your precious, fractured skull
Let it seep, let it keep you from us
Patiently heal you
Patiently unreel you



Bead-weighted chests with lofty cries
Lofty cries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs



You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us drip on each other's side
Dear brother collect all the liquids off of the floor
Use your oily fingers
Make a paste, let it form



Bead-weighted chests with lofty cries
Lofty cries with trembling thighs
Weepy chests with weepy sighs
Weepy skin with trembling thighs



You must be hovering over yourself
Watching us trip on each other's sides.
