np – Merry Thoughts

Merry thoughts

A very underrated “semigoth” band, afaik theyve

only released two albums (“Millennium Done –

Empire Songs” 1993 and “Psychocult” 1996,

altho i dont know if the “semigtoh” tag is accurate,

their sound is very reminiscent to that of the

“Temple of Love 1992” rerelease single by

The Sisters of Mercy, ANY song from The Merry thoughts

could easily pass as an extrasong from that The Sisters single,

and since i love that sound i love The Merry Thoughts,

some of the best by them includes “Chant”, “Pale Empress”,

“We love to”, “Boy Sinister”, “Psychocult”, “Second generation”

and  “Dreamland”, i also like their render of Iggys

“I wanna be your dog”,

great stuff !  😀

The Merry Thoughts – “Chant”

“Put it down:
A confession for the charge sheet
Or if you’d like a charcoal sketch…
1, 0
1, 0 is for emotions
Five minutes for the life i’ve had
And it’s six minutes to yesterday
And it’s twenty-six years past… twenty-six years past…

I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon
I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon

It hit me,
A flower on my cold side
‘call god on a party-line’
Where are my wings?
Don’t know where i did leave them
It’s getting harder to find the things i hide
Put off
A confession for the blacklist
Or if you’d like my passion-play
Red light,
Red light is for confusion
Five minutes for the life i’ll have
And it’s seven-something that i dial
And it’s twenty-six years past… two thousand years… i dunno
And god just says that it is up to you
God says it’s up to you

I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon
I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon

I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon
I’m looking for a life that feels for me
Make it appeal to me and let it
Chant, chant, babylon

I make you a deal
I make you a deal
I can erase your ideals
Yeah, i make you a deal”
