soul murder (by the hamlet machines)


Get Flash to see this player.

This is from the same batch as "retaliation", soundwise and otherwise. The lyrics come almost verbatim from President Schreber's book "Memoirs of My nervous Illness". The man has experimented everything this song is about. Creepy.

When I was down in Hell’s kitchen
I was with fleeting sketchy men
I know their faces were changing
Whenever I was not watching

Tiny figures on my left ear
Said horrors I was forced to hear
Though I hated what it was about
I too was made to shout them out

Soul Murder

My nerves they were so excited
It made God high and attracted
But they tried to hijack his rays
To use them in their evil ways

I thought that God was on my side
But he was trapped couldn’t decide
Between drawback and attraction
(Policy of oscillation)

Soul Murder

The inferior god Ariman
Wanted me to be a woman
I could tell it was happenin’
from the softness of my skin

Since I was the last man on earth
God he wanted me to give birth
To a new race but his Enemy
He wanted false men to rape me…

Soul Murder...

They wanted me to be insane
Connecting black nerves in my brain
While tiny men were pumping on
The marrow out of my backbone

Sometimes they stole my Stomach
As sometimes they woud put it back
Run all over my head and nape
Screwing tight my skull out of shape

Soul murder...

listen to this loud

Duct Tape
Michael, you always use duct tape. Maybe you should take it easy before you hurt yourself again.

five extra arms does not help you lose weight or make you look younger.

Heavier Than Normal, If Possible
CJ - this song is phenomenal. It's dark and scarey and creepy and a very, very heavy handed performance. Your vocals are miles off the previous coolness charts. One of your best vocal performances in my humble opinion. Originality to the max, man. Levels are just perfect. Compares with your best of mixes. BK Sound is on his mark with this tune. Such a simple and perfect riff - designed with room for your vocals, rather than your vocals fitting their way on top. Soul Murder is an unexpected surprize - I'll contemplate this song for a long time. As your number one fan, I can say without hesitation that this song tore me to shreds and left my jaw hanging wide open. What a curious load of poetry you dumped on us. I'm trying to make sense of it even after 30 minutes of repeated play. The laughing sounds at the end of the song are frightening and well deserved. This might be my most favorite HM song. I'll get back to you with an update.

CJ - This is magical. You've really impressed me with this song.

heavy mental
thanks a miilion for your kind appreciation. This song is very close to the original spirit of the Hamlet Machines, before we learned a second chord and went-relatively- pop. Why this is not on "Gnostic Disco" is probably a case of me thinking too much.
