Musical Interlude: Insomnium Valediction on Friday the 13th

edited by O Society September 12, 2019

Not sure what this is called… perhaps melodic metal is the term the kids use these days. New one from Insomnium out this week. So insomnium is your Word of the Day.

insomnium (noun): wakefulness, vision, dream

It’s Latin, so maybe not a word found in every English dictionary.

valediction (noun): the action of saying farewell

“he spread his palm in valediction”

a statement or address made at or as a farewell

Underneath the blackest soil I lay down my warm, beating heart And deep beneath the frozen ground I bury down my deepest thoughts Because the road I’ve chosen Is free of fortune and desire Or the mundane toil and worry Because the trail I’ve taken Leads down into the darkest shores Where the stars have passed away Tonight, the world is burning Black smoke hides the skies Tonight, dark clouds rise up Swirling, shadows engulf the land Shadows engulf the land By the side of forsaken path I leave behind my old shadow Into the deep under these shores I drown my broken memories Because the road I’ve chosen Is free of fortune and desire Or the mundane toil and worry Because the trail I’ve taken Leads down into the darkest shores Where the stars have passed away Tonight, the world is burning Black smoke hides the skies Tonight, dark clouds rise up Swirling, shadows engulf the land Shadows engulf the land For something to change Something has to give For something to grow Something has to yield (I kiss the light goodbye) ‘Cause tonight, the world is burning Black smoke hides the skies Tonight, dark clouds rise up Swirling, shadows engulf the land Shadows engulf the land

The last one was an epic Viking song…

This time we got Friday the 13th…
