about

This is a NEW RE-ISSUE of the 3rd album by brilliantfish (2003).
It is a re-sequenced, more cohesive album with 9 tracks.
'Separate' marks an abrupt departure from the harder edges of the previous two.
Dark, melodic songs that are at times stripped down and lean, at other times lush and orchestrated.

Track Name: Well (2017 Re-Issue)
when you drink from the well
you go crazy
when you drink from my hand
it's so easy

you sighed
and all of your heavens are snapshots and
little bits of paper
and they blow away...

you painted a picture
of lines and buildings and...
where did you go?
up to the 9th floor?
were you going to look before you went over?

when you drink from the well
you go crazy
when you drink from my hand
it's so easy

Track Name: Separation (2017 Re-Issue)
too afraid to breathe
too afraid to fly
I think I'll stay down here
and watch the sunlight
muted shafts upon my hands
breaking through the surface
all has come to pass
there's nothing more up there - for me

separate from you
separate from me
separate from everything
what is there to be?

Track Name: Center (2017 Re-Issue)
one man walks
and another one flies
bodies are falling
from out of the skies

the center is broken

one man walks
and another dream dies
voices are pounding
behind her eyes

and the center is broken

and the sky cracks
two worlds collide
and the soul splits
splits in two, splits in two
the ones who should be holy
are the ones who are held down
the ones who are held down...

one man walks
and another one flies
one man walks
and another dream dies

Track Name: Lint (2017 Re-Issue)
it hides in the truth
you'll never know it
shine as it does - shine as it does

it clings in the light
you'll never see it
scream as it does - scream as it does

it hides in the truth
you'll never know it
shine as it does - shine as it does...

Track Name: Beautiful (2017 Re-Issue)
she's so
so beautiful
I am half as slow
as I used to know
she's so beautiful

she's so
so beautiful
and I will never know
how she loves me
she's so beautiful

Track Name: Limits (2017 Re-Issue)
Waiting for the coin to drop?
Cannibalize your way out
Nothing else is going to stop - you

Handcuffs on an empty fist
Hanging from a window
Chew the arm off at the wrist

Speak in tongues with the walking dead
(finally found a posse)
Catch a bullet in the head

Waiting for the coin to drop
Euthanize your way out
Nothing else is going to stop you...

Track Name: Chasm (2017 Re-Issue)
you know you can't stay here
you know you can't leave
shadows find their way in
so bring your heart to me

bring your heart to me
bring your heart to me
shadows find their way in
so bring your heart to me

there's something you won't see here
and I can't make you go inside
hope can find you out there
but you know just how to hide

there's a chasm in your head
that you just won't cross
there's lightning in your soul
that you just don't want

bring your heart to me
bring your heart to me
shadows find their way in
so bring your heart to me

Track Name: Separate (2017 Re-Issue)
Where do you want to be
20 years from now?
Who do you want to be?

Find myself alone - in noise
Go into my head again
(and) Follow the dark hall down

Cut me out - a heart of stars
make this vision - beautiful
It's time - to break down
I'm ready - to lose myself again

I read the lines on the page
Familiar and strange
Someone else's hands / crawling on my skin
Watching the phone ring

Separate the flesh from the bone
Separate the head from the home
Separate the soul from your own survival
What do you want? What do you want?

What do you want to be
20 years from now?
How do you want to be remembered?

The film won't stop and all these things are questions I can't ask again
Close the doors and open wide the windows
out into my head I spin

I read the lines on the face
Inevitable and strange
Someone else's life speaking on my hands
Watching the light change

Separate the flesh from the bone
Separate the head from the home
Separate the soul from your own survival
What do you want? What do you want?

Separate the flesh from the bone
Separate the head from the home
Separate the flesh from the bone
Separate the head from the home...

Track Name: Close (2017 Re-Issue)
When you walk away
Does it hurt you?
Do you think?
Do you think about it
At all?

When you turn inside
Does it break you?
Do you feel?
Do you feel anything at all?

One speck of dust
One grain of hope
One life
What are you going to do about it now?

If I close my eyes
to everything I've done
I could be a shadow man
I could be invisible
If I close my eyes
to everything I love
I would be the smallest planet
circling the sun

and I would get so close…
