I want to stop thinking of love, dreaming of love, defining love. I want to feel the earth below me... ravish me. Given: the waterfall, the illuminating gas. The bachelors: suitors at my call. I used to dream of love as a machine; Myself as the motor, erotic energy. I'm ready to experience this love, to look beyond this glass, leave concept for reality. I want to feel the water immerse me... consuming me. I want to leave behind this lauded virginity, to experience love, to be taken by love. I want to feel the sunlight upon me... overpower me. Given: the waterfall, the illuminating gas. The cinematic blossoming: halo of the bride. I used to diagram love as a machine; Myself as the motor, erotic energy. (repeat during atypical fade-out)

You draw me from my present state. the candles die, the room swirls, the night almost gone. in an instant i imagine perfection. we pull so tight, needing to fulfill every dream; to replace every nightmare, to erase every tear. when I find you, will I understand? when I find you, will this all drift away? when I find you, will I be who I wish to be?

"As one aflame laid bare by desire proves that melancholy waters run deep. Perhaps not as gloomy, and certainly not as maudlin and angry, as some previous releases, angst as art is still the source of fuel for Rosenthal and crew's perpetual dark flame. In fact, the art aspect is intensified as Sam laces threads from dadaist Marcel Duchamp's artworks and literature into Black tape's gauzey fabric. Think modern Gothic chamber music with some ambient/electronic overtones." Read the full review at: www.spiderbytes.com/ambientrance/bla-aoa.htm"

Whether this music is “gothic,” “ethereal” or “ambient” is in the eyes of the beholder. The truth is that black tape creates incredibly passionate music incorporating all these genres, yet transcending them with a musical poignancy and lyrical insight that is striking.
