You gotta cut me loose It's time I break the news Can't you see I'm not amused? I'm about to blow a fuse This time I got it right I've been at it throughout the night I must put it to the test Gotta bust it out of my chest Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition We're running out of time I can't say I'm doin' fine I think I'm losing my mind All I got down is my rhyme The numbers just don't add up And I am turning rad, ha How long do you think we got Before this world breaks in half Madness is my home Cos I am a mathematician Madness is my home Because I know its definition Madness is my home When I turn on the ignition Madness is my home That's where I breakthrough with ambition

Win Win Win 03:46
Words can’t go where I’ve just been Bought me a book about a fallen friend I learned of Satan’s origin Hanging in hell about a half past ten Demon tried to con me, sell me a sin A potion of control over mortal men As a matter of fact, I’ve got plenty of Zen But I’ll take two sins, you got change for a ten? Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him But that was then, way back when The sword was so much mightier than the pen I’m a fisher of men every now and then No, Daniel didn’t die in the Lion’s den Can you conceive of what he believed in? Is there more to life than a long weekend? A world devoid of all gentlemen Is a land that man has wandered within Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Sit right back and watch the world pretend That the meaning of life is to win, win, win And heaven knows where Satan has been So wash your hands before you eat with him Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole now Messed up, drawn out Running back to my hole

Each time I turn around Hoping you will be behind The empty room keeps laughing at me Break down, hit the ground My mind has locked me out And I just can't keep it real Right on, gotta move on Pick myself by the ropes Shine my shoes and get some new clothes Deadlock - bust it up New start, gotta crank it up There will be no more messing around Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind Step up, pick it up Never mind we messed it up Look at me I'm ready to dance A time bomb or sweet romance come closer and take a chance No matter if it makes no sense Come on, just once more Buckle up, it is time to go Rack 'em up this time it's for real Head on, fear no more Stand tall, the game is on Sometimes you gotta crash to break free Tell me off Let me down Brush me off Sell me out But don't twist my mind Set me up Turn me in Shut me up Kick me out But don't twist my mind

Circa 1962 03:38
It was a tricky situation But what could you've done? Those monolithic structures Had a life of their own You gravitated nowhere The ground beneath was soft You needed some adventure Anything at all Watch that umbrella You're not Cinderella No matter what the weather The other side is better You dreamt of destruction Fire all around Your blood was boiling hot But you could make no sound The concrete was concrete Circa 1962 And you had to be discrete What else could you do, do? Watch that umbrella You're not Cinderella No matter what the weather The other side is better It was a tricky situation But what could you've done? Those monolithic structures Never come undone The concrete was concrete Circa 1962 And you had to be discrete What else could you do, do, do? Watch that umbrella You're not Cinderella No matter what the weather The other side is better Watch that umbrella You're not Cinderella No matter what the weather The other side is better

You spend a life time finding sense One precious piece at a time You build your friendship fortress fence With solid rocks one by one Then you see it all collapse Tumble down with the speed of light And you wonder, is there more to life Left with no more fight You wake up early, the night's still young A smell of must and rain You fear your shadow, you choke on your tongue Your trust thrown in vain You try your best to play it fair To let live and let it slide You answer every call they make And then they hang you dry You never know Even even if you're a leader You never know When the game is on You never know Who taps into your meter You never know When they throw you a bone You plan your every move you make Your entire life No short cuts, no backdoors, No cut and paste, no cut and dry You give in to the race, You try to cut to the chase You think relationships is what it's all about Till they knock you flat on your face You never know Even even if you're a leader You never know When the game is on You never know Who taps into your meter You never know When they throw you a bone You never know When you catch the fever You never know When you'll turn into a believer You'll never know If you're not a dreamer You never know Yeah, you're on your own

I wish you would invite me Make me feel at home Sit me at the table Just like one of your own Bless me with your kindness Trust me with your friends Open up your heart And I’ll follow to the end I am at your mercy Praying for some love Naked at the alter Handing you my soul Look into my eyes And spare me some pain Can’t you see I’m drowning Crying out for help Why does it always have to be this way? Me on my knees and you looking away This empty stare is driving me insane Why won’t you meet me a third of the way? Mock me if you need to Judge me if you must It is the indifference That I hate the most I need to know you’re there To shed a light on hope To show me that you care (Cause) I’m at the end of my ropes I am begging your forgiveness And praying for some love On bended knee I whisper Pledging you my heart Just look into my eyes And feel the pain inside All I need’s a sign And I’ll follow you blind Why does it always have to be this way? Me on my knees and you looking away This empty stare is driving me insane Why won’t you meet me half of the way Why does it always have to be this way? Me on my knees and you looking away This empty stare is driving me insane Why won’t you meet me half of the way

No matter if you have noting to say Your silence is loud, my muscles are strained It isn't a fight, nor is it a game But merely a moment of self defence The tension around is so hard to bear Nerves cramping up in total despair The energy's high, the air is so thick Your heart is pounding, mine is spilled This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away I am at the wheel and this time it's real And I like the speed, the rush, the feel But I can't define if there's enough time My troublesome mind is driving me mad The hour has come and we can’t delay To speak out the words long harboured away Come out of the woods, and tie up our boots Back to the roots, remember what’s good This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away No matter if you have noting to say Your silence is loud, my muscles are strained It isn't a fight, nor is it a game But merely a moment of self defence And now it is clear - we must gamble it all I can't understand why it took us this long Come out of the woods, and tie up our boots Get back to the roots, remember what’s good This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away This runaway train racing down the rail's taken us away

Have you ever been So super connected? And yet somehow Minutely imperfected So close you’ve reached And almost touched it But then your reach was breached You climb upon a mountainside Heading for the peak But then your path… it was denied And now you’ll never speak Of the beauty that you glimpsed Briefly at the top And the feeling that you sensed Somehow would never stop Have you ever been So super connected? And yet somehow Minutely imperfected So close you’ve reached And almost touched it But then your reach was breached Have you ever been So super connected? And yet somehow Minutely imperfected So close you’ve reached And almost touched it But then your reach was breached It’s like looking in the mirror And seeing someone else Trembling at the terror That your mirror’s image felt When it looked into your eyes And saw the manic madness And then it took you by surprise As the madness turned to gladness Climbing other mountaintops Whose paths lead to the peak And of the mountain that was denied I’ll think but never speak Have you ever been So super connected? And yet somehow Minutely imperfected So close you’ve reached And almost touched it But then your reach was breached Have you ever been So super connected? And yet somehow Minutely imperfected So close you’ve reached And almost touched it But then your reach was breached

Bear in mind that this is just a warning You can still turn it around Reputation's a venire and moulding It's integrity that really counts It is tempting to unleash the madness And grab the power by the reigns Wake the wolf inside and bite with prowess And destroy all that still remains Are you sure you want to trade? Don't you feel betrayed? Shall we raise the stakes? How long till you wake up? Do you really want to trade? Don't you feel betrayed? Shall we raise the stakes? How long till you wake up? What you have at stake is simply priceless Which is why they want it all so bad Can't you feel the power of your kindness And compassion trump all other hands It is tempting to unleash the madness And grab the power by the reigns Wake the wolf inside and bite with prowess And destroy all that still remains Do you really want to trade? Don't you feel betrayed? Shall we raise the stakes? How long till you wake up? Don't you taste the bait? Time is running late Who controls your fate? It's time to wake up?

Hanging Ten 04:17
I took a journey to discover the truth I found some answers and I found some proof I live my life inside a dreamlike trance I hear the music and I have to dance I’m alive, I’m alive I’ve studied money, studied history I know where we’re headed is no mystery The sun, the moon, the rippling wind My spirit flows throughout the now and then All aglow, all aglow Go through the motions, there’s no other way Ignore the decadence, forget the decay I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend Inside a wave I thought that would never end Hanging ten, hanging ten The gift of life of has certain conditions Neglecting talent is the ultimate sin Feels like we are following the Roman path Can’t control the world without some wrath Empire, Empire I’ve found some answers in the Austrian school And non-believers in the class that rules So much frustration when you know what works Instead of looting and the corporate perks We could thrive, we could thrive Go through the motions, there’s no other way Ignore the decadence, forget the decay I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend Inside a wave I thought that would never end Because it is a battle for your heart and mind Awake your soul and who knows what you will find The tree of liberty we must all revive Every now and then if we’re to survive Go through the motions, there’s no other way Ignore the decadence, forget the decay I had a thought that taught me, taught me to transcend Inside a wave I thought that would never end Because it is a battle for your heart and mind Awake your soul and who knows what you will find The tree of liberty we must all revive Every now and then if we’re to survive

about

“These 13 songs take us on a journey of style and depth,” reports Soundwaves Review. “We have funky dance, spacey grooves, instrumental tracks blending industrial and electronic sound, and lyrics that captivate with their honesty.”

RESONANCE reaches a broad new scope for Icicle, the alias of Krassy Halatchev who has been swept up in an intensely productive and personal wave of song-writing since going out on his own. Thus it is no surprise that this new record stands tall to its predecessors - Resurgence (2014), Theorems (2015), and Reverie (2016).

Floridian poet Joel Jenkins lends lyrics to Win Win Win, Super Connected, and Hanging Ten. All other lyrics and all songs on RESONANCE are written, performed, arranged, recorded, and produced by Icicle. The new album is characterized by especially strong and inventive writing. The mix ranges from raw and brutal sounds like those in War and Smoke & Ash, to Runaway Train - a “break-up song.” 1962, says Icicle, "is a throwback into the height of the Communist regime; a parallel between the East and the West,” while Madness Is My Home (first single) evokes “the mad scientist, working relentlessly on a small miracle, finding that Eureka moment at the break of dawn.” The album opens with the instrumental Tuck the Puck - Icicle’s signature, and closes with Hanging Ten - “a reminiscence and reflection upon the way of the world and its mechanism; a call for awakening and realization; a call for revolution of the mind.”
