Sven B. Schreiber So these are the miracles of modern post-progressive rock music! With remarkable ease, and obviously without pressure, they span the arc from alternative rock to classical chamber music - two genres that might have seemed - ahem - incompatible so far. But with a little help of a singularity at the right place, everything is possible... don't you see? Favorite track: The Singularity.

Corrèze the deads Une sorte de pop orchestrale tellement bien foutue qu'elle ferait passer The Divine comedy pour les Sex pistols...En deux mots : énergie et raffinement. Favorite track: The Singularity.

Ahem 01:57
I was sleeping in a fall A fool boy humming into a wall I was stalling, I was stalling, but for what I can't recall I was seeing through your eyes But all my objects seemed twice the size I was counting, I was counting, but its hard to count the sky I was trying to read your thoughts But soon I found that my head was lost I was moving, I was moving, I was moving, moving on

Hey friend, I haven't seen you much It's my fault, I've been so out of touch New club? No, you go on ahead Old blood, I'll dance when I am dead When I'm dead I'll dance when I'm dead That was a killer show Makes sense to take it on the road Not me! I can't afford the risk You tour, I'm on the mailing list Go ahead I'll tour when I'm dead I don't know what else to say I don't know what else to say Maybe I'll get to it someday I see myself at 94 Spare dreams stuck on life support No wait, if that's what lies ahead I'll change or put it off and dream when I'm dead I don't know what else to say End all my thoughts the same way: “Maybe I'll get to it someday” I've been so drunk on safety I think I'm going crazy Don't want my ghost to hate me Time's running

Through a narrow ravine, flattened ferns under feet Pull a thorn from my knee wading into the creek I can bleed Oh, and I know where I belong Oh, I could never leave you long Shaken out of my daze by the shrieks of machines I am weak A collision of grays, nothing brown, nothing blue, no more green I can't breathe NYC, I was in you all along Don't you see I could never call you home?
5.
By the time that we all go deaf, I know that we'll find a cure for it, yeah People say that we'll die someday, but we just don't believe it Long before we are old and gray, we'll find a way to beat it Fight against physical decay, keep our bodies breathing By the next quarter century we won't even need them So shoot the supplements into our veins so we can reprogram our genes And let the nanobots swim through our brains to keep our neurons sharp and clean There's not a problem that we cannot solve with our technology Just as long as we can stay alive until the singularity Maybe you think we're mental But if you doubt anything we say, check out our man's credentials Our evolution is underway, and it's exponential There's no reason to be afraid We'll shoot the supplements into our veins so we can reprogram our genes And let the nanobots swim through our brains to keep our neurons sharp and clean And we will all transcend biology and merge with our machines Just as long as we can stay alive until the singularity So play it loud, turn up the kick Cause by the time that we lose our hearing, we'll have a fix for it So play it loud, crank it up to ten Cause by the time that our ears are broken, we'll have no use for them
