Leon Williams ~ Star Stack

Leon Williams ~ Star Stack

Very cool use of whatever app that is making the spray of color—I can’t keep up! But it’s brilliant. Also like how the smokestacks are crooked, but the pipe in the foreground is level. Leon has desaturated the image and added some bluish overtones in the upper left and grain to wonderful effect.

It should be a very ominous, spooky picture, but the splattered constellation of coloured beads nullifies the inherent darkness of the image … signifying what? I’m at a loss.

And this song came to mind …

Well sweet children, pay attention closely
I’m the voice out of the pillow
i’ve brought something for you
i’ve ripped it out of my breast

with this heart
i’ve got the power
to extort the eyelids
i sing till the day wakes up
a bright glimpse of the firmament

my heart burns

they come to you by night
demons, ghosts, black fairies
they crawl out of the shaft of the cellar
and will look under your bedding

Well sweet children, pay attention closely
I’m the voice out of the pillow
i’ve brought something for you
a bright glimpse of the firmament

my heart burns
my heart burns

they come to you by night
and steal your small hot tears
they wait until the moon wakes up
and press them in my cold veins

well sweet children, pay attention closely
i’m the voice out of your pillow
i sing until the day wakes up
a bright glimpse of the firmament

my heart burns

Mein Herz Brennt (My Heart Burns) by Rammstein

Here is a live version I absolutely love. Terrible video, but the best live version I’ve found—really captures the melodic melancholic undercurrent, something I find quite unique in Rammstein, of the song— I have looked!
