lyrics

The Waymark

The waymark has drifted
The lamp is burning out
The birds have not learned to sing again

No magic and pixie dust
Winter carries on
Spirits asleep, atrophied.

We’re deep down the well
The darkness still blinds
But you keep the stars above from fading

Echoes of laughter fade out around the room
The weight of your words still lingering
Spreads like infection
A catalyst, a flame
Traces of hope rekindling

We’re deep down the well
The waters still rise
But you keep the stars above from fading

Deep down the well
The darkness still blinds
You keep the stars above from fading

about

RECEIVERS Montreal, Québec

"It’s a particular feeling, and you know the one. Night sky, smokestacks, street-lights, shouts. Office towers turned into mirror walls, and trees’ leaves gone grey in the dark. Receivers’ music is the dense, noir melancholy of electric guitar and electronics; it’s the lull and lullaby of Marzinotto’s voice. It’s alienation, hope, and back-lit dream..."
-Sean Michaels (2014 Giller Prize Winner)
