REHEARSAL DEMO APRIL 2004:

THE FALL WENT RIGHT THROUGH ME
THEME FROM HELSINKI, HELSINKI
MISANTHROPIC AUGUST FALLS 1996
SILVER MOON & WINTER QUEEN
AUGURIES A-GO-GO

"A lie goes around the world,
while the truth's still putting boots on"

Recorded at Woodbine Garden Studio, April 2004, by Teemu Aalto & OG. These were rehearsal sessions and so we left them unfinished. Vocals were recorded in less than three hours, but they needed more than three cups of coffee (though every YIW song was done, this fistful will be enough). The Woodbine Garden Sessions are now "official" bootlegs! ALL WRONGS REVERSED!

Track Name: The Fall Went Right Through Me
Whose fault is it
If one hasn’t been here long enough to be happy
‘Cause every day they try with branched thoughts
But they fail in something, They fail to see
Whose fault is it
If one hasn’t been here long enough to be happy
‘Cause every day they try with branched thoughts
But they fail in something, They fail to see
That “I’m so fucking tired, Why can’t I be alright”
And I felt nothing this year
The fall went right through here, And here
And here with the burdens we’ll have to take now
To be safe from harm, To get us through
For how long has it been there
My heart’s so full of this
No leaves will line the streets
And who could ask for more, Who could ask for more
The world of my soul is all I have
To thank with all of my patience
And I don’t wanna follow
The same old goddamn line
‘Cause it would be too much and I would be no more
Then I wouldn’t be at all, Then I wouldn’t be at all
Track Name: Theme From Helsinki, Helsinki
Now the devil is old and diseased
In the very heart of each bone
All the sons gone to their mothers
To learn the things that will count
Those who die may come back
“How you leave today” does not
And if you wanna get down below
Then you'll get down below
(How) I'd like to live in a city
That don’t breed for spiritless dreams
But I'll stay awake and I'll pray
Let them go away if they want
One fucking youth in a sewer
Is not the loss to be grieved
And I got no hate for you
Honey, No good it will ever be
If I can't make it here I'm not gonna make it
If not here, I'm not gonna make it
Make it anywhere

"24 hours, boys!"
One fucking youth in a sewer
Is not the loss to be grieved
And I got no hate for you
Honey, No good it will ever be
Poor devil's ass for god's fist
If what you are is being a no one
And if you wanna get down below
Then you'll get down below
Oh oh oh oh, Is it like that
Will the little town little boots
Melt away, Melt into this world
If I can't make it here I'm not gonna make it
If not here, I'm not gonna make it
Make it anywhere

In Helsinki
In Hel-Helsinki!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Track Name: Misanthropic August Falls 1996
Will the earth sink into the abyss of nothingness
With naught but thick blackness
And have I followed the will of my own
No, I don’t think I’m any better than you are
If the circle gets all straightened up
Then comes the age of northern winds
Oh Hallelujah, Let this word be weighed
I’ve washed my hands to hold you close
Well, I'm dead serious tonight and I'll have it now
Set out to sing, Baby, To sing the verses of fall
When there are no more words left
That's the right thing to do, Right on yeah
Well, I'm dead serious tonight and I'll have it now
Set out to sing, Baby, To sing the verses of fall
When there are no more words left
That's the right thing to do

But it's not a question
Of who's the meanest motherfucker on earth
It's not a question of who gives or who doesn't give a fuck
Let's Fin(n)ish the game, Vanhala!

"Maahan miehet, Maahan miekat, Maahan untelot urohot,
Sa'at miehet siiven alta, Kymmenet kynän nenästä!"
Track Name: Silver Moon & Winter Queen
Snowing wherever you go
Seen in the red light of sunset
Tell me of times before this life
And tell me if it’s too late, Already too late
I’ve tried to be cleansed from their quarrels
The curtain of flames was easily passed
Though I feared, I feared a lot, feared a lot
For life can be hard sometimes
When we’re dreamless and cold
The moon hiding tears of scarlet
Nothing but a glance of mourning
Winter queen is made of deceit
And the heathens they all die too young
“I want to hold you in my arms,
I want you more than my soul”
In chambers and in need
For my eyes to be blessed
And what was the worth of it all
How did I live through the mist
Given the part of a wolf
(Almost) hunted down by the weak
In chambers and in need
For my eyes to be blessed
Track Name: Auguries A-Go-Go
They say the good man has gone bad
[this line is an augury going away, a-go-go!]
And they all will know what it's like
The world through the ears of a grave, grave man
"But we’ve been stranger than the night
Force and fire helped us through
Babe, you got real wolfen eyes
Are you gonna hunt them down?"
Down.....Down.....Down....Down!!!!!
Now I’m sober and I'll take the torch
For I’ve seen all Nietzsche’s blood dry
If they're still bad they've heard none of this
The world through the ears of a grave, grave man
A grave man!!!!

“…like a falling rose the red wine bleeds
lovelorn tears vanish in bereavement she left me
shattered echoes of yesterday
I heard them fade away….”
(In early 1997)

Wading across the tulip fields
In the parks of this city

"Sydämeni suuri hiljaisuus,
En ma enää aja virvatulta”

They say I got wasted, But my hands are clean
I got long hair and empty pockets, No money at all
But this wastrel’s got a free spirit and he’ll walk with you
My eyes may have suffered but they’re still full of life
It lives in my heart and always, always will
