Indeed True Live

katsumashi I love this band because they feel less like a "prog band" and more like a really talented alt rock band that happens to have an entire orchestra and choir (I know that's basically the defintion of prog but it's the vibes that make it different sssssh). this live version of some of the Negative Space tracks accentuates that for me. love it :3

A stifled voice and a tongue bitten in two Forgotten in a shadow of shallow sympathy Passing as ghosts, walking among us Haunted by a spectre of silent shame There is nobody who would not collapse Under the weight of their own mind Or the weight of a lack of humility Insensitive to the invisible, hateful and blind Does sympathy halt at the skin and go no deeper? Complicit hands must make this change
I knew a poor young girl She was but seventeen So kind and pure of heart She did not deserve what had come She was so innocent Her smile brought delight to the darkest days But on that fateful night She was robbed of her light The angels took her back When death had said his final word But she was so innocent A life of virtue and grace We’ll carry her spirit through our lives One moment led to death With no way to prevent This fatal tragedy That scarred the lives of those she knew But her heart was innocent It seems so far from just But anger affords no peace of mind
There’s never been a love like these two shared, so selflessly It melts the stolid heart and bitter word, and sheds its light upon this waking dream Do you recall our solemn softly spoken promises? Blessed beneath a canvas of starlight’s warmth Bathed in full moon’s glow And there lay our two souls entwined, arranged in perfect euphony In that moment of perfection I swear as if time had frozen still The absence of all doubt and all worry proves that this is indeed true love And this love shall last, never have hearts rang so true Just keep this simple promise and we’ll make it through
I’m trying to understand this feeling that won’t let go I watch what they’re going through, their sorrow I see It’s out of my control And now I’m lost in a moment I’m lost in a dream Who’s to say my intuition is not a gift that needed just just some nurturing? I’ll bite my tongue and stifle my voice, retreat to a shadow Somewhere I can find some peace Was it the weight of my own mind that led me here Or the complicit hands of everyone that I love?
