No joke! The lace-metal gods from Bellevue, Wash., will perform at the Route 66 Casino tomorrow.
But my real question is: With all the metal in this town, how come no one covers “Silent Lucidity”? Which leads me to this second query: Does anyone else want to see an all “Silent Lucidity” cover night? I’m not really kidding.
Here’s the first verse, to get your tear ducts warmed up:
Hush now, don't you cry
Wipe away the teardrop from your eye
You're lying safe in bed
It was all a bad dream
Spinning in your head
Your mind tricked you to feel the pain
Of someone close to you leaving the game
of life (whispered)
So here it is, another chance
Wide awake you face the day
Your dream is over
... or has it just begun?
This may be the prompt for a future collaborative blog called “Songs with Whispers.”
