On an ordinary Monday On any downtown street All the people are actors No one you’d like to meet Every exchange is scripted Roles are often reversed Even the improvisation Is completely rehearsed When you walk through The city of the dead This is the tune That plays in your head Took a left down a side street And walked into another time Modern buildings replaced By echoes of 1939 Men in fedoras Fading in and out I drifted aimlessly amongst The nebulous crowd When you walk through The city of the dead This is the tune That plays in your head One day I saw your face Reflected in a midtown window Sunlight warming tempered glass And the city came to life I tried to catch up to you But lost you in the crowd When you walk through The city of the dead This is the tune That plays in your head

Wires in the walls Shadows in the halls It's hard to breathe It's hard to breathe Your crime epidemic Suspect mix up Sleepwalk forty hours Heatwave not enough This fist mix strong Get clipped half finger Attack the nerve Grab the knife Get stuck in your side Let me be your motivation Let me be your private storm Let be be your dark Narcissus Let me be the one who's wrong Tricky Violet Oh Tricky Violet How I long to see you again Arriving leaving truly deceiving We had our moment and now it's gone All Systems Burn Motorway hip sway Counterculture compromised Kerosine loop adder Push baby burglarize Flextime arc vague Floodlight jump jibe Grip yer face Automatic jargon hypnotize Let me live within your memories Let me haunt you like a song Let me be the one who leaves you Let me be the one who's wrong Tricky Violet Oh Tricky Violet How I long to see you again Arriving leaving truly deceiving We had our moment and now it's gone All Systems Burn There is too much damage Not enough time All Systems Burn There is too much damage Not enough time

When I was younger, I watched from windows Waiting for a future that sparkled like crystals Bright and electric - every door open I thought that time was on my side I knew that time was on my side But the future never came And every day is the same Standing by the same window The days are shorter as I grow older Drifting, snow falling in an endless cold winter I grow impatient as every door closes I thought that time was on my side I knew that time was on my side But the future never came And every day is the same The colors that you cannot see Beckon like unheard melodies The people you might have known The days that will never be But the future never came And every day is the same

Talk to me in numbers Talk to me in code You don't need a reason Just let it flow Talk to me in fragments Talk to me in dreams I am an illusion I am not what I seem When you step across The digital divide I'll meet you on the other side This is not life and this not death It's a strange compromise I remember sunlight I remember rain I recall the images But it's not the same I remember your hands I remember your touch Completely disconnected I may go insane When you step across The digital divide I'll meet you on the other side This is not life and this not death It's a strange compromise

about

Fragile Gods New York, New York

Almost sounding as if it belongs on a cassette from another era, Frederick Frantz makes music under the moniker Fragile Gods. Simple flowing retrosynth tunes with minimal synths and a unique vocal somewhere between spoken and sung that will put you back in the 80s. ... more
