about

Icicle’s newest record (Silence) is one of the freshest 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.

Track Name: My Heart
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
Track Name: Silent Screams
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
Track Name: Winding Road
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
Track Name: Life's A Stage
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
Track Name: Move On (Earth)
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
Track Name: The Two Of Us
THE TWO OF US

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
Track Name: JJ3
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
Track Name: The Same Mistake
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
Track Name: Move On (Water)
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
Track Name: Hope
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
Track Name: Faith
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
