I come to you, humble and willing, brave stepping over the bones of my brethren I wouldn't come here if I wasn't desperate, but I am too small, I cannot lift this. One cement block could hold all I love each moment sinking deep in the mud and I would do everything in my own power but I am too small, and so is the hour. And will I never be great because I refuse to be cruel will I always be afraid will I always need an oracle? They said you were great, and they were not lying, but why is greatness so terrifying great and terrible ... always in pairs so we come to an oracle, trembling and scared And will I never be great because I refuse to be cruel will I always be afraid will I always need an oracle? I do not steal like the rats in the rosebushes I do not kill like the owl in the forest I do not lie like the leaders of fortresses so will I die with the kind and the powerless? I do not steal like the rats in the rosebushes I do not kill like the owl in the forest I do not lie like the leaders of fortresses so I will die with the kind and the powerless. And I say that I will never be great because I refuse to be cruel and I will always be a little afraid I will always be little, but I would rather be little than ever be an oracle.

are you travelling to New York with your guitar? or are you going off alone? are you meeting someone? will you think of me when you get there? do you think of me at all these days? this train will take you farther than I dare go just outside my head it's 600 miles up there a long drive by anyone's standards and I cannot guarantee too many visits and I cannot guarantee too many letters this station has its separate paths and we our separate tracks our separate tracks I know that I am hard to Love and I know that I ask for far too much but we get what we ask for sometimes and sometimes we miss the mark we miss the mark well know I travel the world with my guitar but I remain so alone sometimes I meet someone I think of no-one somedays but sometimes someone's just enough to sweetly fill my time and sometimes noting but a dream is enough and sometimes even the dream's too late I've missed the MARC

This one-sided blind side was not the right side for me Just cause I’ve got something for you does not mean you’ve anything for me And falling through the cracks with no safety net at all Makes the cheap seats even cheaper and gives a surer sharper fall What did any of it mean? Who’s gonna save me? I think I’ve overlooked something in the room… This over-arching roof is guaranteed you’ll have nothing left but no fear of anything Never cold and never hungry just stay huddled close to me I am the sum of every little thing you need You poor and huddled masses yearning to be me You’ve got nothing left to fear but fear itself and me What did any of it mean? Who’s gonna save me? I think we’ve overlooked something in the room… Fool me once and blame the student Fool me twice and blame the teacher Fool me thrice and blame the master Or maybe start looking back… I’ve heard it causes cancer I’ve read it cures the same It’s been known to shift its stance and ask askance if you thought everyone else here had changed It’s been known to toe the line and place its weight upon the scales it’s been known to slowly shift around It’s been known to tell a joke and call the shots and pull the strings And everybody knows it really gets around What did any of it mean? Who’s gonna save me? I think we’ve overlooked something in the room… Fool me once and blame the student Fool me twice and blame the master Fool me thrice and blame the system Or maybe start looking back…

Into a hole in the cold, cold ground on a grey, grey day Into a hole, down, down-soft place for us to lay I buried us in a secret place none will go Bluebells in the field, the only wreath we’ll ever know. No churchyard will ever hold our sad, sad sin No coin of copper, silver, gold to buy our way in No stone to mark the bitter place where we lie No stone but my heart … and no one’s tears but mine. Can you hear … judgment in the trees How they say … I'll never rest in peace And they will say … lies I can never untell See, the only hymns sang for him were from silent little bells Silent little bells … I loved a man in the worst of ways, loved me once Loved me but he left, left me with his son But the son he did not rise when it was his time And I begged my love bury our son, but he said “was none of mine.” The world it judged me hard for what it did not see The woman is a whore, while the man he goes free So tell me now for all my pain, can it be a sin For a woman done wrong to do the man done it – do that man right in? Can you hear … judgment in the trees How they say … I will never rest in peace And they will say … lies I can never untell See, the only hymns sang for him were from silent little bells Silent little bells … I took my love to an old, old place on the edge of town Told him he could take me, take and lay me down I let him kiss me deep upon the edge of the well I took my lover in my arms and took us both to Hell. Into a hole in the cold, cold ground on a grey, grey day Into a hole, down, down-soft place for us to lay I buried us in a secret place none will sing Bluebells in the field, bluebells in the field, bluebells in the field And not a one to ring.

Everyone loves a revolution spin in a circle, 'til it comes round everyone loves a revolution 'til it's on your doorstep, 'til it's on your ground I got complaints, I can't deny I got concerns, keep me awake at night and I got my problems with the way of the world, see But I'm not a soldier and I never will be The tv's like a fast car they're cheering it on Revolutions per minute and the Beatles' song: "you say you want a revolution" make sure it's the one you want ... Everyone loves a revolution all the liberty they bring everyone loves a revolution but one man's Che is another man's King You never know what you'll get when tyrants fall and a revolution's just a circle after all The radio's a fast car they're singing along revolutions per minute and the Muse song: you can "stand up and take the power back" it's easy to sing, but would you do it if they asked? Easy to say far away, oh so safe No sacrifice ain't that nice just you wait 'til it comes who'll be the chosen ones? 'Cause everyone loves a revolution spin in a circle, 'til it comes round everyone loves a revolution 'til it's on your doorstep, it's on your ground I got complaints, I can't deny I got concerns, keep me awake at night and I got my problems with the way of the world, see But I'm not a soldier. I never will be The tv's like a fast car they're cheering it on Revolutions per minute and the Beatles' song: "you say you want a revolution" careful of what you want ... You say you want a revolution ...

Once I had intelligence And once I had the will But sometimes all the lines a hard life finds redefine our tale And the dreamer deep inside of me was eventually a casualty I think the things I couldn’t think and fight the fights I couldn’t win Inside my head. I unwrapped the star this year but it wasn’t where I’d dreamt of being And as the paper fell away The glitter fell away The kids weren’t there but I just don’t care She wanted plastic and I’d thought so hard for wood this year They can open them alone I paid for all this stuff Ain’t that enough I’m leaving The winter came on oh so hard And every muscle aches From 40 years of hoping passion’s all it takes Too old to leave a pretty corpse Too young to just forget I’ll surprise you all with the poison in my head The poison in my head It’s the perfect weathered grey The perfect winter’s Day As I climb into the sky I scribbled all the things I could’ve said You’ll be sorry when I’m dead You’ll all be sorry when I’m dead now just once I’m gonna seize the day… I’m falling I’m falling The first one to the scene They took everything they could get from me And the doctors that came next They feared the worst That I was uninsured The ink upon the note had run with the snow and blood and slush It was a Christmas miracle they said That if I wake That I will Live But I’m flying I’m flying…

about

In 2013, ilyAIMY released their first double album Another Life/Another Live. Somehow, Artem Bank got access to the multitracks for the studio portion of the album, and did bad (GREAT) things. This is the result of a year of collaboration between a great band and a nosey producer.
