Fugazi Posted September 7, 2020 Share Posted September 7, 2020 Shoemaker (Human. :||: Nature. 2020) Youtube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rjp_DfvJimg Lyrics: Now you've been tucked in For eternal earthrise and wonder A sailor through aeons Story unheard Howling at the Earth Yours the whole graveyard of heavens A ship that sailed home You're with us, face of the night Singing through the morn for mankind I want to sing with you You're home now, outward urge As with every dreaming creature We want to come with you Here I came to be Your reach into the far On the stellar sea Cut in little stars We all wait the due night Beauty which is worth the hurting We're coming to join you Hope revived for a lifetime To rekindle the human spark In love with the night Now you've been tucked in For eternal earthrise and wonder A sailor through aeons Story now heard Howling at the Earth Yours is the whole starmap of heavens Of myriad endings We came here to be A waypoint to the far On the stellar sea Cut into little Stars calling with the sound Of a dreamlike dulcimer We came here to stay With your guiding light “And when he shall dieTake him and cut him out in little stars And he will make the face of heaven so fine That all the world Will be in love with the night And pay no worship to the garish sun” Laudato si Ad astra From the band: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd2EYheiurU Floor says it's about Eugene Shoemaker, and that the song doesn't have a typical structure. Also that it's tricky to sing, she says she was properly challenged. The operatic part is about Eugene going up to the stars. That last bit is one of her personal highlights on the album. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrCeOfS2kM8 Johanna Kurkela's spoken Shakespeare quote was supposed to be only a guide vocal for Geraldine James, but eventually remained as such.
