about

Soundless Madison, Wisconsin

Vocal harmonies, flowing dynamics, and obsession. Soundless was born in a thundering storm of noise in Madison, WI that led to blending rock with many strange things. Russian submariners playing gospel songs, or maybe "post-carnival" music.

Track Name: Lullaby
Winter kiss me on the head
Whisper goodnight
Let soft whiteness bury me
Turn out the light

All of the stars arrive
When I’m alone
Take me into the night
Let me go home

Snow angels that hold my hands
Sing me to sleep
Keep their gentle melodies
After I leave

Oooooh

Let me go home
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Lying here together
Our limbs are intertwined
We hold each other
Until he runs cold fingers down your spine

You and I forever
That’s how the story’s told
Masquerading fairy tales
Never to grow old

Leave me alone

Gentle breath of moonlight
Touches our bare skin
Bathing in the clear moonlight
To wash away our sin

I hear you knocking once
I hear you knocking twice
Go, my darling
Run, my darling
Please take my advice

Leave me alone
Track Name: Old Ways
Who’s writing down the old ways?
The old ways

When I forget my own name
My own name

When we fight
In the ice and know
Carve trees
Into flames
And apologies

Oh!

And you walk
In the tracks of snow
Your face
Of ice
And apologies

Who’s writing down the old ways?
The old ways
Track Name: Miracle of Sound
Where my bones go
Swept aside
Where my mind goes
Left behind
As my blood flows
Hold me tight
Until I know
I’m alive

Please go slowly now
On this hollow ground
Miracle of sound
Hear me screaming loud

When my voice is small
You will rule it all
I’m not even here
Nothing left to fear

As time will tell
I wish you well
You taught me how
To be here now
Be here now

Can you hear me now?
Track Name: Atoms
Lend me your ear
And you can have my mouth
Show me your bones
There’s no one else around

When all our atoms interchange
We’ll never be the same

Take off your skin
Let me crawl inside
Please let me in
There’s nothing left to hide

Tear out your lungs
Press them into mine
Suck all my air
Until the end of time

All of our fingers
Need to intertwine
Your hand lingers
Soon we will combine

Is this your heart?
Wait, no, this one’s mine
Where did you go?
You’re just in my mind
Track Name: Pasture
Out beyond
Ideas of right and wrong
You will find
A field open wide

Meet me there

Meet me there
Where the boundaries blur
May the pasture walls
Start to crumble down

May the pasture walls
Suddenly dissolve
Into light
Into love
Track Name: Funeral March
Let me go
My ashes will become the snow
Not one sound
As I gently fall to the ground

When I’m done
Launch my body into the sun
When he calls
My organs will live in your walls

Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la
La
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la
La
La la la la la la la la la la la la la

Your heart moans
So I’ll let you drum with my bones
Dry your tears
Make castanets out of my ears

Lilies bloom
I’m propped in a chair in this room
Guests arrive
Let’s pretend that I am alive

Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la
La
La la la la la la la la la la la la la
Fa la la la la la la la la la la la la
La
La la la la la la la la la la la la la!
Track Name: Science Moves Slow
We tap the bark and harvest
The tiny golden leaves
We make them dance to catch a glance of possibilities

You can’t predict tomorrow
We can barely see today

The substrate down beneath us
All infinities
But we are just these simple things that can barely see

You can’t resist tomorrow
When we try to flee today

Hourglass
Is tipped over on its side somehow
Will we finally free our grasp
When we freeze into the now

You can’t exist tomorrow
We can only be today
