Denez Prigent & Lisa Gerrard – Gortoz A Ran – The New World

October 2, 2007

Denez Prigent & Lisa Gerrard – Gortoz A Ran – The New World

lyrics translation (from brenton to english)

“I’m Waiting”

I was waiting, waiting for a long time
In the dark shadow of grey towers
In the dark shadow of grey towers

In the dark shadow of rain towers
You will see me waiting forever
You will see me waiting forever

One day it will come back
Over the lands, over the seas

The green wind will return
And take back with it my wounded heart

I will be pulled away by its breath
Far away in the stream, wherever it wishes

Wherever it wishes, far away from this world
Between the sea and the stars (more)

Innovative rock band Radiohead has stunned the music world by announcing that its forthcoming album will make its debut as a digital download available for whatever individual consumers want to pay for it.

Guitarist Jonny Greenwood announced on the band’s website late Sunday night that the new album In Rainbows has been completed and would be released Oct. 10 online.

When pre-ordering the album through the website, the checkout screen returns the message: “It’s up to you.”

A subsequent message adds: “No really, it’s up to you.”

A physical version of the band’s seventh album — a special edition featuring two discs as well as lyrics and artwork — will follow in December.

The critically acclaimed band fulfilled its contract with record label EMI with its previous album, 2003’s Hail to the Thief.

In the past, despite being leaked onto the internet before their official release dates, Radiohead albums have still shot to the top of music charts.

Radiohead and its frontman, Thom Yorke, are among those in the recording industry who have questioned the traditional music model and the dominance of record labels.

Prince, for instance, has regularly given his music away for free in the past few years, with the U.S. pop, rock and funk icon employing unconventional distribution techniques like releasing tracks on his website first and handing out free copies of new albums to those attending his concerts.

Most recently, the American singer, composer and musician gave away thousands of his latest album Planet Earth through a British newspaper. While the move angered the record industry, his subsequent 21-day concert series in London attracted packed, enthusiastic audiences.

Citizens of Tomorrow

Citizens of Tomorrow

Band: Tokyo Police Club
Song: Citizens Of Tomorrow
Movie: Battle Royale 2

See the ruins of the old world below
That’s what our ancestors left us
But our robot masters will know
How to clean this mess up
And build a better world
For man and machine alike
For the boys and the girls
Who are slaves building spaceships at night
In the fluorescent light
That’s two thousand and nine

On cold frosty Martian mornings
The chill on my breath is red
Redder than my mother’s blood
When she turned to me and said
“This is not how we planned it
But we’ve gotten ahead of ourselves
Computers rule the planet
And the moon and mars as well
We lost the fight”
That’s 2009

I have a microchip
Implanted in my heart
So if I try to escape
The robots will blow me apart
And my limbs will go flying
And land before the ones that I love
Who would wail and would weep
But the robots would keep them at bay
While I shut my eyes
For the very last time
Citizens of tomorrow be forewarned
