PRODUCTION NOTES:

Written and recorded in the Summer of 1997.

The six tracks on Whispering pt.1 were selected from a grouping of eleven or so songs as most representative of the B! Machine sound. Whatever that is. All compositions followed in the Must Kill tradition of anti-polyphony (Excluding the ESI-32, a technicality since it was employed for non melodic purposes). Whispering pt.1 also contains the first multi-lingual songs produced by Wishduck Studios since B! Machine's Dorlotez-vous.

 

LYRICS:

Fold

We've grown old

our secrets have grown into lies

that bring us together

that veil our hearts

 

Our promises hold

at least on the inside

we've grown old

at least on the inside

 

I do not love you

I do not know you

but I'll think of you

for an afternoon (on this afternoon)

 

 

Painless

If I talk to you

If I even think of you

The age of memories

The almost destiny

 

Comes back to me

like your arms around me

like the love that bound me

wound around me

once it was too much

but now I can't touch you

 

If I'm close to you

or even the taint of you

 

Comes back to me

when your words have found me

what I've done surrounds me

it crowns me

once it was too much

but now I wish I could touch you

 

Falling Dream

Its always you

this falling dream

I dream of you

and if you'll catch me

you never do

 

me no yume

boku ei en ni wasurenai

demo ima no life

everything everything's a lie

 

It's always you

this falling dream

I dream of you

and if you'll catch me

but you never, you never do

these broken words

cannot come true

this falling dream

I dream of you

 

Shadow

Sometimes I catch myself wandering streets where our shadows still dream

you no longer live here and I no longer know you but sometimes

I catch myself wandering streets where we...

 

Sometimes I catch myself dialing numbers where you lived

but your voice even your sisters voice

won't echo off these walls

 

Wasuremono

open your eyes

êS ÇÉ å© Çæ

the ghost of our love

åN ÇÌ ñY Çê ï¨

 

ëS ïî Ç  Ç° Çé

a kiss and a dream

àê Ç Ǹ ÇÂ

I never know what I mean to you

 

çð ìú ÇÌ ãC éù Ç¿

the ghost of our love

Bleed

Bleed...hands are work...working your bloom...your opiate in concentrate...on the memory...

can't memorize...glazed eyes

Rise...fear is alive and mounting...paranoid and doubting...bent and suppressing...every memory

un-memorized... every memory un-realized...every memory un-denied
