Το Roisin Machine είναι ένα από τα καλύτερα καινούργια άλμπουμ που άκουσα φέτος – η miss Murphy δίνοντας έμφαση στο dance συστατικό της μουσικής της ξεκινάει νέο κεφάλαιο της σόλο καριέρας της, με πεδίο τιμής το disco floor. Ουδεμία σχέση με trendy αναβιώσεις και ξαναζεσταμένα φαγητά, όπως μπορεί κανείς να ακούσει σ’ αυτό το τραγούδι με τον φοβερό τίτλο.

Roisin Machine is one of the best new albums I heard this year – miss Murphy gives emphasis to the dance elements of her music, starting a new chapter in her solo career, an endeavour on the disco floor.
No trendy revivals or recooked food here, as someone can hear on this awesomely titled song.

(In the kingdom of ends)
This is all, nothing left
This is it, this is easier than I expected
(There’s only one desire left)
This is sane, this is mad
Ain’t nothing left, make me glad
(Just one more prize I’ve yet to get)
This has seen better days
Every old passion gone away
(You saved the best till last my beautiful friend)
Why’d you have to make me wait?
Already bored of my faith
(In the kingdom of ends)
At the ends ain’t no use
Can’t retain, let me loose
(There’s nothing left for us to gain)
Nothing left to explain
Keep going in, keep going on
Keep going down, can’t turn around no no no no
Keep waking up every morning
Thinking “What the hell am I doing?”
Keep going on, going onwards
Ever in, ever downwards, yeah yeah yeah
Keep going in, going on
Keep going down, can’t turn around no no no no
Keep waking up at 6 AM
Getting up, doing it all again
Keep going in, going on
Keep going down, can’t turn around no no no no
Keep waking up every morning
Thinking “What the hell am I doing?” yeah yeah yeah
Keep going on, on and onwards
Ever in, ever downwards, yeah yeah yeah
Keep going in, going off
Keep going down, can’t turn around no no no no
Keep waking up at 6 AM
And getting up, doing it all again
(In the kingdom of ends)
At least it’s easier than a comedown
(There’s simply no desires left)
I was young once, dumb and full of cum
(Then one more prize you’d left to get)
I waited so long, there’s bound to be a let down
(You saved the last till last my sarcastic friend)
I hope you’re happy now
(In the kingdom of ends)
I’ve come to know the true form of my desires
(There’s nothing left for us to gain)
If you can’t get away, means you can’t take it back
You’re not under attack, I’m just feeling lonely
Guess I can’t take a little more than you have got
I’m gonna need some glamour on it
Especially if you take me in the back
Need to see the signals more and more and
All the beauty in the eye
Oh signs and signals are my-my triggers
My-my mind triggers, an o-overload
That’s when we come to the end
That’s when we come to the kingdom of ends

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
