Icarus machine and Corium – Join us on Patreon

So Corium, our second album, has been in the works for two years. It is finally ready. The release date is yet to be determined. Even after the music is done, there are so many things to do.
Some of those things do carry a cost. And that’s where you come in. We need you to join us in making this happen without too much pain.
So why not support your favourite webmaster and her band?
When you support Icarus machine — the band, you also support JennyK and The House of Imp. And let’s be honest; you might hate prog-metal. Or any metal come to that. You might even hate steam-punk fiction. But that’s perfectly fine. This creator of music, words, and the House of Imp website just needs support to do what she loves to do. Becoming a patron is the easiest way to give your support. It’s easy for me and easy for you. When you join patreon and decide to support your favourite creator, you give up a couple of dollars every month. And that, believe it or not, makes a difference.

So here is where you can go to do just that. A taste of Corium – Join patreon to unlock this post!
The latest post from Icarus machine includes the title track from the album “Corium” including lyrics. And a peek at the wicked cool album art!

Thank you for reading. Hope to see you soon.

About this song:

Dissonance is a song that defies genre. It’s prog-rock, goth-rock, emo, and a bit of experimental. but mostly it’s defined by the emotional tension and disregard for standards that is typical JennyK. I’m glad to have Icarus Machine with its own particular style of metal produce this song.

Lyrics:

Dissonance
Lyrics by jenny K Brennan

I said hi, I said hello, I said I think that I need you.
You said hey, you said sure, what do you need me for?
I said oh, never mind, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know.
I’ll do it on my own.

It takes two to pitch a proper fight.
It takes two to propagate a lie.
It takes two to pose a question.
It takes two to play a proper game.
It takes two to make someone believe.
It takes two to build a connection.
But only one to shut it down.

At the end of the day I just wanted someone to know me.
At the end of my song I am dissonant.
At the edges I’m frayed.
At the end of the night I just wanted somewhere to belong.
A place where I can always go.
At the end of the day I just wanted you to hear me in my dissonance.

It takes two to pitch a proper fight.
It takes two to validate a lie.
It takes two to make a friendship.
but only one to let it die.
It takes two to play a proper game.
It takes two to make someone believe.
It takes two to build a connection.

At the end of the day I just wanted someone to care that I feel at the end of my line.
I don’t know what’s beyond here, beyond here.
At the end of the day I just wanted someone to know me.
At the end of the day I just want to know I matter.
To you.

It takes two to pitch a proper fight.
It takes two to propagate a lie.
It takes two to change perception.
But only one to see it my way.
It takes two to play a proper game.
It takes two to build connection.
but only one to break it down.

This separation is all mine.
Anxiety is blind.
I know in my mind you’re all around.
But at the end of the day it’s just me, myself, and I.
In your voice I hear reason.
In your absence I hear treason.
After all, that’s what I came to know.

It takes two to pick a different fight.
It takes two to ease somebody’s fright.
It takes two to make perfection.
But only one to deny.
It takes two to start a different game.
It takes two to build another faith.
It takes to to make connection.
but only one to break it down.

I said hi, I said hello, I said I think that I need you.
You said hey, you said sure, what do you need me for?
I said hi, I said hello, I said I think that I need you.
Hello?

Lyrics

This death of mine leaves me unsatisfied
But the darkness inside me is moving
and the thing that is me, the thing that was me
You burned my ass but don’t you worry
Don’t you worry
I won’t hurry

You burned my ass but don’t you worry

My body makes no sound down there in the ground
Where you laid me down
But you pray
You pray that I’ll stay
Dead, dead, dead, dead
Don’t you worry, i won’t hurry
I just bide my time
I bide my time
Cause my body makes no sound

This cold cold heart leaves me
Hungering, craving
There comes a day
There comes a day
Your flesh and your blood will satisfy me
This thing that was me
This thing that is me
Dead
You burned my ass
Dead
But don’t you worry, don’t you worry

My body made no sound as you lay me down
Into the ground and now you’re praying
My body made no sound as you lay me down
Into the ground
And now you’re praying I’ll be staying

There was a time
A life I can’t recall
But there must have been
I must have been

Reaching out from a flaming pire
A life tainted by lies
Chastised by fire
Screaming from out of endless punishment
A life broken by faith
Twisted by your beliefs

Then I left that pain
I left that life behind
But I’ll never forget
Dying

Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, Into the ground,
And you’re praying
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down, into the ground
There’s no time in hell
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
I’ll see you around
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
Hush now
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound as I lay you down
I bide my time
Into the ground
Your body makes no sound

Thanks for listening.
JennyK, Gemini, and Vincent at Kompoz.

The Dorks – Right minds left – A Kompoz collaboration release – Honky Tonk

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Right minds left

Honky Tonk

$0.99 on soundBlend

And how did this happen?

Artist’s Notes
(By Project creator Kim Noble)

How The Dorks came into existence—the behind-the-scenes story:

Starting with two lyricists who have a bit too much time on their hands, Tracy led the charge in creating some lyrics that jumped off a hilarious page
and kept the project going with his tireless finesse! But neither of us could have ever imagined that James Fraser from the grand UK country and Jenny
Brennan from the even larger country of Canada would ever take this to such a level that left Tracy and I speechless… and that is quite a feat. Adding
in a chorus of fun crooners like Dave Scheuner (California USA) and Jerry Eriksson from Sweden, well, you’ve got one entertaining tune that left us all
rolling in the aisles. And, since Jenny’s mixing skills will leave you wondering if we really are all together live… let’s put it this way… none of
us will ever tell. 🙂 We truly hope you enjoy this one-of-a kind tune and be sure to be on the lookout for the revival of The Dorks coming to a SoundBlend
arena near you! 🙂

Artists notes

How did this happen? Really? 😀
(By co-producer, mixer, Dork JennyK.)

I don’t know. Some how I got sucked into a space time warp engine and got chucked out in an alternative universe where JennyK mixes spoon, mandolin, and cowbell. Was it possible?

Well, it happened. And it’s one of the most entertaining songs I’ve worked on. It’s a lesson in audio editing and mixing that I’ll never forget. I nearly killed myself laughing when I realized what a jug track was. The Dorks are real! The Dorks will be forever awesome and I’ll be there for the revival. Thank you thank you thank you very very very very much.

Lyrics

Some people say we’re two of a kind

And that we’d quite agree.

I’m yin, he’s yang There’s no denying

She’s peanut butter; I’m jelly.

The truth about all of this show

Is to set the record straight

We’re the type that’s clear to see

To separate us would be a mistake.

CHORUS:

We may not be in our right minds

But it’s the only minds we have left

We may not be the thinking kind

It’s something you’ll have to accept.

When your bulb is not that bright.

There are few thoughts to regret.

We’d like to sing another line

But this is all we have left

Verse

Our mamas separated us at birth

The years completely froze.

We lived our lives in disarray

Until we found Kompoz. 🙂

So now we celebrate this truth

By writing down the rest

We call on you Our fans so true

To sing our Right Minds Left
