My Heart 05:02
I saw you walking through the open door There you were, you could hide no more I waited long for this day to come To embrace me like the morning sun You never left even though you'd gone I heard your voice many times before Soft spoken in a time of war You calmed me down and I’d cry no more My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on You always knew how to take a stand To moderate like Superman You mesmerize me with your haunting smile And stupefy me with your commending style You paralyze me as you read my mind And hypnotize me with your magic bind Your signals beam like a satellite They shudder deep and mystify My heart was dead on Always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on My heart was dead on It always knew you’d see me home My heart, it knows Your soul will always lead me on

The silent screams in the Earth’s last scenes Burn and sear within my soul And suddenly it strikes me as we spin Towards an endless hole Anarchy, a pleasant dream Of governments entrenched Overthrown and crippled down High officials lynched To live without a number A tattoo on my arm The price of life be sacred Paradox of harm Visions of reality Time between my dreams The needle’s coming closer Can you hear the silent screams? Do you want to stop the silent screams? Do you want to tear society down? Maybe I can help you in this dream If I take the silent screams and give them sound The silent screams in the Earth’s last scenes Burn and sear within my soul The freedom of life withers and dies Oppression represses the whole But not for long, my silent son An elite few know the chosen one Has arrived in this world With a pen for a gun As diseases and catastrophes Spread across the land Will they finally overcome Necessity of man? A single spirit could unite us A leader among the men Creating human spider webs Filled with dreams of when Do you want to stop the silent screams? Do you want to tear society down? Maybe I can help you in this dream If I take the silent screams and give them sound Do you want to stop the silent screams? Do you want to tear society down? Maybe I can reach beyond this dream If I take the silent screams and give them sound

Winding Road 03:19
Tense As in past or present, I don't know Sitting on a fence Wondering if I belong Will As in strength or will it come at all I'm neither here or there Which way should I go? Trance As in semi-conscious state of mind How can I define I feel like I am blind Winding road is everywhere I go Winding road is all I've come to know Play As in vain or an instrument, or game You can go insane Trying to sustain Spin As in turn or someone's point of view What they'll make you do Tears me within Winding road is everywhere I go Winding road is all I've come know Short cuts reel me and never play a role Sharp turns steer me and keep me moving on Winding road is everywhere I go Winding road is all I've come know Short cuts reel me and never play a role Sharp turns steer me and keep me moving on Winding road is everywhere I go Winding road is all I've come know Short cuts reel me and never play a role Sharp turns steer me and keep me moving on

Selling myself into a sort of slavery All I’ve got now is this cubicle I’m told if I work twelve hours a day For prostitute’s pay, well then maybe They will put a window in my cage As if that could ever appease my rage I guess that I should act… act my age But I heard somewhere that life’s a stage Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition I had to leave all the corporate worlds Behind in the wake of my succulent swirls Their corporate fake and material girls Just got in the way of my cutbacks and curls So I got a night job, shared a house with a slob Started bartending with Jake and Jarod Ran my own business as a daytime job Well I might con ya, but at least I don’t rob Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Claim half of what I make, in the cooler getting baked Take as much money as I can take From every alcoholic for alcohol’s sake Because they are the leaves and I am the rake Can I get another beer for you? Is there anything else that you’d like me to do? Should I get down and shine your shoes? Just as long as you leave me a dollar or two Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition Yes, life’s a stage And not a competition So print that on the front page Of the next Sunday edition

You can spend all your life Finding meaning on the ground You can simply close your eyes (And) start chasing dreams that do not count You can spend all you've got (And) still end up stuck in a rut You can drift like a leaf Falling slowly to settle down Move on beyond Do not wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Set yourself free at once With the power of your mind Best if you can realize What it is you need to find Lift your head up and breathe Let the wind be your guide Turn your eyes to the sea And feel the breeze, it'll let you fly Move on beyond Do not wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Move on beyond You shouldn't wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Read on beyond These gloomy headlines Rise on above This land of stillness

Love the feeling every morning Staring at your lids Trembling gently as you sleep Tracing fervently your body Chasing down the curves Underneath the silky sheets Realizing every morning That you’re here to stay In my arms and in my dreams Makes me wonder how I made it All this time Without you by my side Morning sunrays Evening sea waves The two of us – paradigm Clear blue skies Starry bright nights The two of us – sublime Love the feeling every evening Sitting by your side Stealing glances as we dine Acting stupid and contagious Like a little child Squeezing every drop of love Love the colour of your timbre And how you say good-night With that soothing smile And as I close my eyes with ease I slowly drift away Just to touch your face again Morning sunrays Evening sea waves The two of us – paradigm Clear blue skies Starry bright nights The two of us – sublime Morning sunrays Evening sea waves The two of us – just like one Clear blue skies Starry bright nights The two of us – divine

JJ3 03:24
When I got something to say You could never stop my voice in any way For JJ3 is me and this is my philosophy To achieve greatness yet remain humble To bumble and stumble but never crumble To hold my honor above all else To believe in something, namely myself To move forward on a daily basis To never stop to avoid stasis To love myself to love all others Realize all humans truly are my brothers To swim with the dolphins, fish and sharks To overcome fear, to leave my marks To charge it, regardless of time, rhyme or place To look in the mirror and smile at my face To love unconditional, to love life itself To make many friends, to accumulate wealth To ride the ocean’s hurricane swells To live in the now, to hear distant bells These are the things that make me feel ready To show to this world a true living Jedi For JJ3 is me and that was my philosophy

Hypnotize me once And I assure you I'll be back for more Mesmerize me once And you'll see me knocking at your door Satisfy me once And I'll show you what I've got in store Just open up your heart Don't be afraid, no, no, no more I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake Never mind if we lose Track of time or common sense I just wanna get lost again Take your soft face in my hands I wanna wake next to you Hear your voice caressing mine I wanna make the same mistake I wanna make the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake I know it is wrong to repeat it I know it will hurt but I can't let go I'm falling for you can't you see it I'm setting the stage for the same mistake

I got some news today They say they found my aqua suit at the bay They say they're looking for me but I'm not hiding Is this my name, seigneur? Oh yeah, sure, whatever you say You've got my aqua suit today Now I can dive again and bid farewell Now I can dive again and bid farewell Move on beyond You shouldn't wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder It’s so hot, it’s so difficult to talk But that is the hazard of it all And you throw your caution to the wind Oh, you throw your caution to the wind Lights go out and the fear of tomorrow Fills your red and bitter eyes with sorrow Move on beyond You shouldn't wander Keep on moving on Life's a wonder Read on beyond These gloomy headlines Rise on above This sea of stillness

Hope 04:34
I hope I’m loved, I hope I never die I hope that they come up with some way that I can fly I hope the world keeps spinning and we try To fulfill my hopes that there's a reason why They say everything will be okay If we just have hope for a better day But sometimes hope is just a fading dream When I see the news on the TV screen But I find hope inside the Milky Way On a starry night in a sunny day I see hope inside a tiny seed As the Earth provides for its every need I have a hope to ride a perfect wave To embrace the day when there's no one left to save I have a hope to write a perfect song That's not too short or long, and somehow rights all wrongs They say everything will be okay If we just have hope for a better day But sometimes hope is just a fading dream When I see the news on the TV screen They say everything will be okay If we just have hope for a better day But sometimes hope is just a fading dream When I see the news on the TV screen It's wishful thinking but you never know As long as we have hope, how high that seed can grow I hope I’m loved, I hope I never die I hope that they come up with some way that I can fly They say everything will be okay If we just have hope for a better day But sometimes hope is just a fading dream When I see the news on the TV screen They say everything will be okay If we just have hope for a better day But sometimes hope is just a fading dream When I see the news on the TV screen

Faith 03:50
When I plummet down The rabbit hole with no light When I plummet down I strive to fight all the fright When I seek the doors In a tunnel with no end When I seek the doors Then I’m urged to amend When I face the world Sweeping down all its turns When I face this world Life embraces its curves When breath freezes on All those moments of haze When breath freezes on Then I need my Faith! A fair slice of my soul in the vast open space Faith! A web of channels and beams of the human race When our justice’s served For the purpose of wage When our justice’s served Then our lives are in pledge When their bottom line Is made of thick gleaming beads When their bottom line Screams for all of their needs A glimpse of Wonderland Is all that’s given to you A glimpse of Wonderland And all the rest is taboo Then my heart arrest Is the moment of truth Then my heart arrest Calls for help from my Faith! Has no sympathy for a rifle’s range Faith! Has nothing to do with today’s rate of exchange Faith! It doesn’t condone how this world is prearranged Faith! Will always be there when we need a leap for change

about

Icicle’s newest record (Silence) is one of the deepest in his acclaimed catalogue, taking him down yet another new sonic path 5 albums into his career.
This is an act whose name has been built on the endless evolution of its own aural dynamics, innovative compositions, brilliant arrangements, and in that respect, Silence does not disappoint.
It is a bold, upfront, driving album, relying on grooves of pulsing keyboard twists, infectious guitar hooks and the off-kilter, slinky rhythms to carry the vocals of singer/bassist Krassy Halatchev.
These songs are some of the most sensual, serendipitous, sparse recording to come from Icicle, showcasing a new dimension in his songwriting and marking Silence as that crucial next sonic step forward for one of Montreal’s best artists.
