I'm on the other side The river is too high I cannot see your face Do you smile or cry? I cannot read the signs Are we close or far? Is this a final warning? Or a new beginning? Say What day is today? Say What day is today? Am I out of line? Am I going blind? I cannot even tell If the ice is melting or forming Am I losing you? Or am I losing me? I close my eyes again And shadows pass me by Here I stand in line Looking back in time I'm too numb to feel Yet too fragile to conceal Once a cavalier Now I'm a souvenir Tucked into a drawer With antic dolls and smell of mould Say What day is today? Say What day is today? Say What day is today? Say What day is today?

The only time when my mind gets numb when I'm hummin' Is when I see you come around me Is when I feel your arms surround me I lose my ground and my hips, and my feet start swingin' I don't know what comes down upon me I don't know where my cool is throwin' me You play your tricks like a pro as you're flirtin' and smirkin' I'm sittin' frozen and observin' Rightfully deservin' You got me pinned to the ground and my body ain't movin' But my heart's still groovin' And my soul's in tune I'm gonna fly up high with you Just hold me tight I'm gonna take a ride with you Just make me laugh I wonder when I realize you're just messin' around… Somebody help me when you're gone Somebody better take me home I'm gonna break in half hard and howl as I'm fallin' I'll wake up early in the mornin' And tear the curtains down roaring' I'm gonna fly up high with you Just hold me tight I'm gonna take a ride with you Just make me laugh I'm gonna fly up high with you Just hold me tight I'm gonna take a ride with you Just make me laugh

Hello quiet confidence, where have you been? I guess you couldn’t stick around, no you couldn’t stand the sin Old subconscious laughter, is he with you my friend? Have you been hanging out with happy beyond the rainbow’s end? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? You say you were her partner, you were her right hand man But Mary Jane destroyed you like only Mary can She made you lose your car keys, forget your master plan She burned away the world while you held it in your hand But what about the good times, the times she made us laugh? She’d help us feel music and dissipate our wrath Come on now my quiet confidence, Mary’s not all bad Some of the times I spent with Mary were the best I ever had I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? Sure she makes me sleepy, but only when I’m tired I’d rather be irie, than continuously wired More mellow than the fiends I’ve seen society has sired The only reason most don’t burn is fear of getting fired You say when Mary’s with you everything is cool But when she starts to leave she leaves you feeling like a fool She smothers your ambition and slowly starts to rule Your every waking moment and you’re more than just a tool I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why? I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit I’m glad you came to visit, thanks for stopping by What’s that, you say you’re leaving because I’m getting high Why can’t you hang with Mary Jane, she’s really kind of fly? We used to be a trio until you left but why?

Tic-toc, clic-clac… clock hands moving like a picture Flip-flop, hip-hop, foxtrot… pepper to the mixture Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just like always you make a very tall impression And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Flying bits of crass and nasty information You're hot and fuming - so compelled to say "correction", Your Honour You see right through me and you freeze me with obsession And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Don't fake it Just shake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm Just shake it Don't fake it We're junkies of the rhythm And I glide like a kite, never felt more alive

I opened my eyes Not knowing where I am Tickled my body As if it were someone else Whatever I knew Seems rather useless now And what I did not Is what I wish I had found It boggles my mind each and every day So many ways to throw your life away Beauty is whole with no boundaries Yet so many fail, just fail to see Boldness directs me Daring into the dark While wisdom betrays me Quietly in the back The moments are passing Ever so very so fast And I skip a few Although I am keeping track It boggles my mind each and every day So many ways to throw your life away Beauty is whole with no boundaries Yet so many fail, they just fail to see I wish I could turn it I wish I could hit rewind Go back to the start And press play again I’d take every moment And hold it with tenderness Reminding my senses How I’ve been blessed It boggles my mind each and every day So many ways to throw your life away Beauty is whole with no boundaries Yet so many fail, just fail to see It boggles my mind each and every day So many ways to throw your life away Beauty is whole with no boundaries Yet so many fail, they just fail to see

Digging deep into my bag of bullshit I realize I’m just a man An animal evolving faster Than evolution’s original plan Money makes, makes me happy Twenty dollars for a tan NASA bought, bought the moon And the moon men they all ran Next week we’ll lasso Mars Incorporate the stars Every night we all get wasted At hip new Martian bars We are so, so complex We even pay for sex It is easier than marriage To generation X It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion? The atheists’ greatest fear Is the possible power of prayer So I’ll pray for their souls And give them all a scare My favourite part of being Is the beauty that I’m seeing When I look at waves and trees Every envious evil flees Magic floats, floats in dreams And I can move the world The only thing that I need is An electronic girl So now I have, have to heave This final thought at you If in something you believe It just might make it true It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion? It is time for you to make a decision Take a step back from your television Don’t just be another paranoid pigeon How many wars in the name of religion?

So many ideas come to mind But none of them jive at this time I wonder if I am not going mad And just 'cause I do I might be right It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found This better be good 'cause I'm not in the mood I don't wanna hear "would, should or could" I've gone all in just to see it through I've come all out for a glimpse of you It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound In this moment alone Frozen in time, burning inside Don't let me go Oh no, oh no I'm ten feet tall in the dancing hall Never been more self assured Stepping on clouds I can dance all night This better be true or I'll lose my mind It better be true when I open my eyes Next time around I don't wanna lose sight Of what I've just found I wanna be, wanna be, wanna be bound In this moment alone Frozen in time, burning inside Don't let me go Oh no, oh no Oh no, oh no

Start it over I know you're mad as hell In your head it's been forever Make it over Flip it upside down This idea's time has come I know it makes you feel uneasy I know it twists your stomach into knots You gotta stop trying to please them You can carry on like this no more Hurt no longer Set you spirit free They come and go just like the wind Turn it over A lot has come your way You can never hold it in your hands Right and wrong will always be there Light and dark will be with you all the way Do not fear your demons They're just shadows in your way Nothing in you Will ever give in Nothing in you Will let them win Nothing in you Will ever give in Nothing in you Will let them win Nothing in you Will ever give in Nothing in you Will let them win See it over Wave farewell for good Turn your back and let them have a look Now the rain has started beating And the engines' roar has slowly died Clouds are moving fast and swiftly Throwing spells over your naked mind Shadows casting murky feelings Full of promises of splendid life Nothing in you Will ever give in Nothing in you Will let them win Nothing in you Will ever give in Nothing in you Will let them win

How can the queen defy me? For I know one day she’ll rely on me To bust on her bishops and wrestle her rooks Diagonal her deities and take all she took I’ll simplify my strategy While the government gets fat on me So cover your king or castle instead Cause the mob is shouting “Off with his head!” Too late to turn? Too late to stop? We’re all too busy having fun Can we sustain such deep distain? Can the game even be won? It doesn’t matter where I’m at Upon this giant checkered board This game of life cannot be won Until my soul has soared Even though the world we know Is a game that’s nearly done One culture coming closer to the edge on which we run Even though the world we know Is a game that’s nearly done One culture coming closer to the edge on which we run So send that queen across to me Cause I love how she looks - so lost and lonely Perish my pawns, knife all my knights Crucify my castles, I’ve yet begun to fight They’re legions of allegiance But let me pose this question to you As you dance into the dawn On the checkered board of life Aren’t you tired of being a pawn? Now when you’re faced with checkmate Won’t you join and sing with me Even though I’m just a pawn I can still kill the King! I can still kill the King! I can still kill the King! Even though the world we know Is a game that’s nearly done One culture coming closer to the edge on which we run Even though the world we know Is a game that’s nearly done One culture coming closer to the edge on which we run

Trying to teach a lesson Fools refuse to learn Starting out my sermon While the world begins to burn My voice it is the thunder Loud across the land And this time they will listen Listen to my plan Suicide king and one-eyed jack Hearts are red, but some are black Twos are wild, and so I am stacked The queen of hearts, she’s got my back At least I tried to tell them At least I tried to warn Don’t be such a victim Beware the coming storm I stand upon my pulpit Arms raised to the sky Four horsemen in the distance And I begin to cry I know that they won’t listen I know that they are doomed They’re lost within their drama Inside their TV tubes Men with moustache, the ace of spades Straight royal flush is what I laid Down for you, so I can say I’ve won the world, the world is saved At least I tried to tell them At least I tried to warn Don’t be such a victim Beware the coming storm At least I tried to tell them At least I tried to warn Don’t be such a victim Beware the coming storm

about

Montreal writer and composer Krassy Halatchev (Icicle) invites us into the universe of his latest album – a world of sensual fantasies, eerie nightmares and biting reality. The third instalment of his solo career titled “Reverie”, releases officially on April 3rd, 2016.

Matured and eclectic sound (think of a blend between Depeche Mode, Placebo, Simple Minds, The Black Keys and Beck) fills the 48-minute record.
This latest studio full-length consists of 12 unmistakable compositions that are woven with passion and conviction. They span through delicate slow rhythms, voluptuous mid-range and furious up-tempo.
Icicle takes us through his world of tenderness (“Nothing In You”), apocalypse (“Fools Refuse To Learn”), personal disappointment (“What Day Is Today”), intimate stasis (“Boggles My Mind”) and social criticism (“Paranoid Pigeon”, “The Edge On Which We Run”).

Icicle’s philosophy has closely tied him together with Florida-based poet Joel Jenkins, the man behind the integral and deep-felt lyrics of 4 songs on this record. This collaboration has given life to compositions that are extremely personal and universal at the same time. "Paranoid Pigeon", the album’s first single, is a perfect example of their remarkable teamwork. The song is simply contagious, driven by a hypnotic groove and infectious hooks. Its imagery reflects the zeitgeist of today and the chorus resonates long after the song's end.
