about

My experience with appropriating ideas from the Masters.

lyrics

You cut me off.

So strike me down, my link delete. Sever all ties, your life complete.
So my timing was wrong and my commitment lacking, so I’ll strip off the pieces that you left hacking.

So let’s settle our score, upon the dance floor X2

Beethoven , Mozart, Bach and Wagner, all pilfered from an other.
What sample is too holy, to be untouchable?
You should be flattered that an imitator like me , bothered to sample you.
All my evil deeds were a ‘Yesterday’s Song’, I was blocked from day zero, now we’ll never get along.
The more tight-knit your clique, the more concentrated the bitch, for your techno-elite, I was never designed to fit.

Tell us the truth, save tears ’til last, give us the proof, am I outcast?

So let’s settle our score, upon the dance floor X4

Is there any room for reparation? it was 13 years ago now.
Our friendship was so healthy, now the silence, so fierce.
And the only mention of good times, has all but disappeared.

Keep your friends at arm’s length, and your enemies at your side.
But I’m treated like neither, where in your mind do I reside?

Tell us the truth, save tears ’til last, give us the proof, am I outcast?

So let’s settle our score, upon the dance floor X4

Our bridges, are cinders, our bridges, you burn it all down. X4

On the dance floor.

about

Lux Voltaire Sydney, Australia

Lux Voltaire.
Born in the straw, and this is his law.
Damaged and frail, I walk along this winding trail. I meander through laser beams of dismissive eyes, and purvey the remnants of futile lies. Fuck, I think I left the kettle on.
