Parallel Universe
disc one - remixture

intro
 
 Next up is a band that formed in Australia back in 1980. And they've evolved since then. They're not your usual pop-rock band. As a matter of fact, this band's music is much more rich and detailed and nuanced as you'll soon find out. They've been recording their new album which is called "After Everything Now This." It's been in the works for the last couple of years. And it's a great treat to welcome for the first time... The Church.
 
seen it @ the feelmore [Seen It Coming]

 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  Hey man, think it through now
Why don't you stay for a while
Eve and Aurora gonna come on over
Know they'll make you smile

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
And I got mine

Yeah
You ain't gonna tell me that you were a saint
Every time you two were apart
You blew your chance
So face the music and dance

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
I got mine
I got mine
I got mine

You should've seen it coming
You've got your broken heart
And I feel fine (feel so fine)
Yeah (feel so fine)
(feel so fine)
(feel so fine)
 Hey man, think it through now
Why don't you stay for a while
Eve and Aurora gonna come on over
Know they're gonna make make you smile
And cool your heels
I know just how it feels

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
And I've got mine

Yeah, she said it's over
But it was over right from the start
You ain't gonna tell me that you were a saint
Every time you two were apart
You blew your chance
So face the music and dance

You should've seen it coming
Been coming for some time
You've got your broken heart
I've got mine

You've got your broken heart
I've got mine

You should've seen it coming
...some time
You've got your broken heart
And I feel fine (feel so fine)
Talk about it (feel so fine)
 
 
stay all night (kings mix) [Song For The Asking]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  (I am a sailor...did not find me)

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know where you go
I don't know, I don't know why I loved you so
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
It stayed with me all night

I don't think, I don't think I've ever been to the brink
I don't think, I don't think I'll have another drink
You said it was enough
Then you called my bluff

You said it was too hard
You took out your trump card
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
It stayed with me all night

I don't care, I don't care, I don't care where you are
I don't care, I don't care, I don't care who you are
You said it was too hard
You took out your trump card
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night
It stayed with me all night

I don't guess the answer will be yes
I don't guess you can't
I don't guess you can't
The answer will be yes
 (I am a sailor on the water, did not find me through the dark)

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know where you go
I don't know, I don't know why I loved you so
You said it was alright
It stayed with me all night

I don't care, I don't care, I don't care where you are
I don't care, (I don't care), I don't care, I don't care who you are
You said it was too hard
You took out your trump card

Song for the asking
Song for you obviously
Song for a singer
Song for a B movie
Song for the asking
Song for you and me

I don't think, (I don't think), I don't think I've ever been to the brink
I don't think, (I don't think), I don't think I'll have another drink
You said it was enough
Then you called my bluff

Song for the asking
Song for you especially
Song for the singer
Song for a B movie
Song for the asking
Song for you and the sea

I don't guess, I don't guess the answer will be yes
I don't guess, (I don't guess), I don't guess you can't wait to undress
You said it was ready
I held myself steady

Song for the asking
Song for you especially
Song full of nothing
Song for the royalty
Song for the asking
Song for you and the sea
 
 
radiant 1934 remix [Radiance]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  [Foreign radio transmissions throughout - Spanish/Russian sounding]

When a cloudy morning rain touched our little town
Three small sisters and a friend walking in the fields
A strange light in the sky blotting out the sun
Whatever happens next changes all our lives

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind
Said our lady has a message for mankind
Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin's radiance

And the icons in the church crying tears of blood
The water in the wells curing all who drank
Pilgrim lunatics arrive in a ragged stream

In the fields around the village sprang up tents
People from the outside world want more evidence
Four tired children questioned day and night
All they can remember is her blinding light

So the circus drifts away and the noise dies down
Life goes on as before all the people came
And the children never say what her message was

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind
Said our lady has a message for mankind
Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin in her radiance

Radiance
Radiance
 When a cloudy morning rain touched our little town

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind

Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin's radiance

And the icons in the church crying tears of blood
The water in the wells curing all who drank
Pilgrim lunatics arrive in a ragged stream

In the fields around the village sprang up tents
People from the outside world want more evidence
Four tired children questioned day and night
All they can remember is her blinding light

So the circus drifts away and the noise dies down
Life goes on as before all the people came
And the children never say what her message was

And the children ran home sobbing and half blind
Said our lady has a message for mankind
Frightened and bewildered, not making any sense
Dazzled by the virgin in her radiance

People from the outside world want more evidence

  Silver needles
Golden eagles
Frightened faces
Basket cases
Jags and riches
Queens and witches
Electric mantras
And tight-fitting dreams

Never been so high

Gilded flowers
Long-lost hours
Morning programs
With fake suntans
Meet a maniac in the cul-de-sac
Otherwise it's this ennui

All this waiting brings me down
All those colors bring me around

Never been so high ([L] Never been so high) ([R] Chromium platin')
Never been so high ([L] Never been so low) ([R] All this waiting brings me down)
Never been so high ([L] Never been so high) ([R] Suffocatin')
([L] Never been so low) ([R] All those colors bring me around)

Broken records
Faded labels
Songs to sing to
When you were young
A tattooed pierced arm
Fresh and perfumed
Switch your prison
Fly away

All this waiting brings me down
All those colors bring me around

Broken records

[In the background is sung the gilded flowers stanza]
Never been so high (Never been so high)
Never been so high (Never been so low)
Never been so high (Never been so high)
(Never been so low)

And jewels on your fingers
Tears in your dresses
Fabulous mansions
And damp little rooms
This one will shrink me
This one will grow me

Human to [2:35] sleeping
Reality looms

[Closes with repeated line too distorted to make out - could be "this ennui"]

distant x unseen [Invisible]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  Sitting in the shadows and the evening oscillating
Feeling light and feeling like it's a-gonna change
Hoping for a moment for some gentle consolation
Waiting at the station where the treats are out of range

She's sitting in a carriage being jostled by the motion
Overhearing conversation, the grinding of the steel
Scenes fly past the curtains that the darkness paints uncertain
And memories are meaningless, her motives are concealed

Through countrysides and mountains and the village by the ocean
Where the stranger's waiting for her in the plushness of his car
Winding and rewinding, pushing all directions
Till the limit of implosions, which is never very far

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

Out there in the distance the horizon meets resistance
The summer falls down drunken on the longest of the days
Rushing past the ruins of the churches and the Porsches
Reflected in the mirrors and the echoes in the haze

He drums impatient fingers on the chrome and on the leather
Running through the reasons in the corners of his mind
Sifting tiny diamonds on his shaky mental islands
Where he often claims asylum from the structures left behind

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

The wind blows through the headstones and the maelstrom's making music
The melody reminds us the girl's still far away
Asleep in her compartment, dreaming of the darkness
As the train speeds on the darkness to the approaching day

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me
 Sitting in the shadows and the evening oscillating
Feeling light and feeling like it's a-gonna change
Hoping for a moment for some gentle consolation
Waiting at the station where the treats are out of range

She's sitting in a carriage being jostled by the motion
Overhearing conversation, the grinding of the steel
Scenes fly past the curtains that the darkness paints uncertain
And memories are meaningless, her motives are concealed

Through countrysides and mountains and the village by the ocean
Where the stranger's waiting for her in the plushness of his car
Winding and rewinding, pushing all directions
Till the limit of implosions, which is never very far

All I ever wanted to see
Was just invisible to me

Out there in the distance the horizon meets resistance
The summer falls down drunken on the longest of the days
Rushing past the ruins of the churches and the Porsches
Reflected in the mirrors and the echoes in the haze

He drums impatient fingers on the chrome and on the leather
Running through the reasons in the corners of his mind
Sifting tiny diamonds on his shaky mental islands
Where he often claims asylum from the structures left behind

The wind blows through the headstones and the maelstrom's making music
The melody reminds us the girl's still far away
Asleep in her compartment, dreaming of the darkness
As the train speeds on the darkness to the approaching day

All I ever wanted to see

 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna be by myself
Be left on a shelf

Oh yeah
Your one and only life
Ripped from the earth with these bare hands
You dare
Question the ritual
Despite continual
Threats of "gonna get you all"

Nightmare
We ride for miles and miles
Following the howling of our prey
Out there
Reload our yellow rigs
Scrambling for shelter
Dig a void, decay

1 for the cockpit blues
2 for the Panzer crews
3 for the vast and molten sky
4 for the failed talks
5 for the knives and forks
6 for forbidden kicks
All the yobbos in the sticks

1 for the flaming sun
2 for the location
3 for the martyrs and the stars
4 for the wind and sand
5 so you understand, so you understand

[Many overlapping voices from here on]
[Female] ...system overload ...data in time, time, time, time...
[Kilbey] One, two, three, four
[Kilbey] Enjoy that?
[Female] Yeah, I did
[???] Soon as the ???
[Kilbey] You should be able to tell that
[Female] Well now I know
[Kilbey] And now you're going to notice it

How could he survive for that long ([Koppes?] magazines, education)
How could he survive for that long
 Oh yeah
Your one and only life
Ripped from the earth with these bare hands
You dare
Question the ritual
Despite continual
Threats of "gonna get you all"

1 law for the officers
1 for the gentlemen
2 bad you 3 know what it's 4
5 for this awful dive
6 for the genetics
7 for the lucky pricks who went into heaven

Nightmare
We ride for miles and miles
Following the howling of our prey
Out there
Reload our yellow rigs
Scrambling for shelter
Dig a void, decay

1 for the flaming sun
2 for the location
3 for the martyrs and the stars
4 for the wind and sand
5 so you understand
6 for the slips 'twixt the cup and the lips

["Come on!" is thrown in after the last singing of this verse.]

1 for the cockpit blues
2 for the Panzer crews
3 for the vast and molten sky
4 for the failed talks
5 for the knives and forks
6 for forbidden kicks
All the yobbos in the sticks

[Steve may be saying "10" after the last verse.]

Female voice:
C: ...10011...10011...
R: 10011...zeroes...
L: ...makeaveete, system overload, the ovual engine was not able to process all the required data in time, time, time, time...

  Are you the same ??? (0:34, 0:51, 1:26)
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah...

When you're gone
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
When you sleep
Watch you sleep

When you smile
When you're gone
No more tracks for me to run on
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
When you sleep
Never know the vigil I keep
To watch you sleep

When you smile
 [Slow]

When you're gone
And no more tracks for me to run on
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
You show me I was wrong

When you sleep
You never know the vigil I keep
Watch you sleep
Peaceful like a Buddha
Yeah you're miles deep

When you smile
It makes the whole damn thing worthwhile
When you smile
Reprieve is gonna come down
We'll live awhile in a while

[Rockin']

When you're gone
No more tracks for me to run on
When you're gone
Couldn't see a way that I was wrong

When you sleep
You never know the vigil I keep
Watch you sleep
Peaceful like the Buddha
You're so deep

When you smile
It makes the whole damn thing worthwhile
When you smile
Reprieve is gonna come down a little while
Reprieve is gonna come down a little while

[Mellow]

When you're gone
No more tracks for me to run on
When you're gone
I couldn't see a way out
You show me I was wrong

When you sleep
You never know the vigil I keep
To watch you sleep
Peaceful like the Buddha
You're miles deep

When you smile
It makes the whole damn thing worthwhile
'Cause when you smile
Reprieve is gonna come down
We'll live the while
 
 
earthfriend (version) [Night Friends]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  (All right) Earth man
(All right) Earth man

Ahhh, Earth man
Ahhh, Earth man
All right

Night friends
Coming through the mirror
Sliding down the light
Night friends
Arriving in the garden
Stay with me tonight
Night friends
Night friends

Watching, you've been watching from a second in our century
As the minutes gain momentum like a bird, man
Watching, you've been waiting
For the other worlds to sync up to our own

Reaching, we've been reaching through the nonexistent surface
It separates our doubles from the soul man
Trying, we've been trying
To make contact with nothings all alone
 Night friends
Coming through the mirror
Sliding down the light
Night friends
Arriving in the garden
Stay with me tonight
Night friends

Watching, you've been watching from a second in our century
As the minutes gain momentum like a bird, man
Watching, you've been waiting
For the other worlds to sync up to our own

Reaching, you've been reaching through the nonexistent surface
It separates our doubles from this soul man
Trying, we've been trying
To make contact with nothings all alone

Watching, you've been watching from a second in our century
As the minutes gain momentum like a bird, man
Waiting, we've been waiting
For other worlds to sync up to our own

Reaching, you've been reaching through the nonexistent surface
It separates our doubles from the soul man
Trying, we've been trying
To make contact with nothings all alone

Loving, we've been loving
But sometimes hate is better
You can't keep out the killers with love, man
Hating, we've been hating
But only love can heal up the hate (all right)
 
 
down: nostalgia and everything after [After Everything]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  Now that it's over I find myself leaving
The sound permeate in all directions at once
I never said goodbye to the family, lovers
Brothers and daughters, the rest of the bunch

It seems so strange that the things I was chasing
Have all evaporated like a distant dream
Petty ambition, petty obstruction
Something in between

(After the after everything, after the after everything now this)

Here is a child playing in a garden
Here is an old man with a broken heart
Here comes a train to take you away
It all goes round and round and comes back to the start

I was never really sure what I was waiting for
When the moment came I was looking away
Obsessed with a past, scared of the future
Never took the time to be here today

(After the after everything, after everything now this)

After everything now this happens
It's not a grand illusion, it's a stupid little trick
The show must go on, these people have paid
You're standing in the wings feeling kinda sick

Never really sure what you were waiting for
When the moment came you just couldn't choose
The fog sweeps down over the marine city
Standing backstage trying to pull on your shoes

(After the everything now this, after everything now this)
 Now that it's over I find myself leaving
The sound permeate in all directions at once
I never said goodbye to the family, lovers
Brothers and daughters, the rest of the bunch

It seems so strange that the things I was chasing
Have all evaporated like a distant dream
Petty ambition, petty obstruction
Something in between

I really thought it would go on forever
Never believed they would sever the ties
All of the questions remaining unanswered
A stranger's reflection in a stranger's eyes

Here is a child playing in a garden
Here is an old man with a broken heart
Here comes a train to take you away
It all goes round and round and comes back to the start

I was never really sure what I was waiting for
When the moment came I was looking away
Obsessed with a past, scared of the future
Never took the time to be here today

After everything now this happens
It's not a grand illusion, it's a stupid little trick
The show must go on, these people have paid
You're standing in the wings feeling kinda sick

Never really sure what you were waiting for
When the moment came you just couldn't choose
The fog sweeps down over the marine city
Standing backstage trying to pull on your shoes
 
 
the deep ache mix [The Awful Ache]
 
  remixture version
 Original After Everything Now This Version
 
  Almost entirely instrumental
 Esmerelda falls in love every Saturday
And on Sunday morning don't remember a thing
And the gringos are all saints of the latter day, that's the way
And it takes a little pain out of the sting

Holy water tastes as sweet as wine
Holy wine tastes just like blood
She's drinking for loss, for the man on the cross
She says no more, the awful ache

And in her bedroom there's a mirror there
Sometimes it don't reflect a thing
And from the street he sees her silhouette
And he can't forget

That her kisses are as sweet as wine
And her kisses taste like myrrh
Her love is lost, like the man on the cross
And no more, the awful ache

Esmerelda walks on down to the cemet'ry
And he's waiting for her in the shade
With the angels and the sad old trees, patiently
But she walks right past his grave

She's crying for loss, for the man on the cross
She says no more, the awful ache
She's crying for loss, and the man on the cross
She says no more, the awful ache
