Premonition


Lyrics : Roy Goldschmitz, Sean Lang

Music composed + vocal arrangement by : Roy Goldschmitz

Song produced by : André C. Kalipke


André : Roy's last song for MA (unbeknownst to any of us at the time). Roy's "protest stance" becomes clear in the lyrics to "Premonition". I find it a very expressive text. However, the line "It's time to fight....." perhaps shouldn't be taken too literally. ;)


Sean : Roy submitted his instrumental in 5/92 and we recorded the first version later that month with Roy on backing vocals. Roy did the vocal arrangements, refrain and first verse - I wrote the second verse. It was recorded a second time in 7/92 with André on backing vocals (this version). Roy came up with a new refrain later that month, which was also his last recording for Modern Age.


(Please also read the author comments of "The Band Introduces Itself" (vocal and recording quality, etc.)...). Lyrics - see below.


PREMONITION


I try to trust your stories - the stories of us

I see your face, a face - all over dust

I found a book with your message - a message of blame

Your heresy of delight - it's always the same


Do you need more respect from all sides?

You save your own soul looking for alluring nights?

Ready for the paradise in which you've found a hiding place

Too easy - it's just meant to be - what you've done, what you've seen


I want my own control - I want myself

I waive the pleasant orders of your mind


Hand in hand - now tell me what's the meaning?

Do you understand the different sides of bleeding?

Can't you try to find out the public face of premonition?

Hand in hand - it's time to fight against your nation


I want to trust your stories - the stories of us

I hear a voice, a voice - all over dust

I found a scroll with your message - a message of blame

Your massacre of morale - it's always the same


Do you want more control from all sides?

You trick your own soul looking for alluring nights

Ready for the paradise in which you've found a hiding place

Too easy - it's just meant to be - what you've done, what you've seen
