Getting close by going far away / Going far by staying here...

video


Were I to pick up my favourite album in 2008, I would not hesitate to choose Thomas Feiner's the Opiates Revised. I was already a fan of David Sylvian and Steve Jansen, but Feiner was quite a revelation. Songs like this moving "For Now" will remain favourites for many years to come, if not forever.

For Now

Getting close by going far away
Going far by staying here
To the kind of place where lonely is travelling best

Leaving ill and well alone
If all fails, all fails

Let the clock strike upon this resting hour

For now... for now...
Leaving point despair
Leaving point hope

Getting lost to find a way back home
Getting back by letting go
Make another footfall
In the flow of things

And death is just a breath away
But so is life
Seeing this, but knowing not which scares the most

For now... for now...
Leaving point despair
Leaving point hope

Whatever worry running through the veins
When you go, you go
Whatever worry racing the head

When you're there, you're there

Getting close
Abandoning hope

Leaving point despair
Looking up from the rush of things
In a point of life that is now
A point of life
For Now
