about

Ravensong Luxembourg

Ravensong is an eclectic, one man, solo project, with a focus on alt rock and rhythm. I have written songs for years and love the art and craft of it. I am interested in dynamics and crescendo and a touch of rule breaking in structure and approach. Hypnotic grooves and thoughtful lyrics that are often ironic and layered finish of the sonic scapes I try and create on a bed of rock!!- Enjoy! :) ... more

Track Name: God Seeks the Grail in You
GOD SEEKS THE GRAIL IN YOU


Everybody wants to go and everybody thinks they know
And everybody tells you to grow but everybody is getting low (view)
Everybody wants to grow and everybody gets down low
And everybody thinks they know but everybody wants me to go

Is there a sail on the brow of a single town over you, you, you?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin from out of you, you, you?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling that is you?

Is there an ear to be found in the pretentious crowd?
Is there a sail on the brow of a single town?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling?

And everybody thinks their queen and everybody wants their ice cream
And everybody is just has been and everybody thinks it’s without me…
And everybody says to go and everybody gets down low
And everybody thinks they know but everybody thinks they’re over me

Is there a sail on the brow of a single town over you, you, you?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin from out of you, you, you?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling that is you?

Is there an ear to be found in the pretentious crowd?
Is there a sail on the brow of a single town?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling?
SOLO

And everybody says to go and everybody gets down low

Is there a sail on the brow of a single town over you, you, you?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin from out of you, you, you?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling that is you?

Is there an ear to be found in the pretentious crowd?
Is there a sail on the brow of a single town?
Is there a wail on the wind to any sin?
Is there a grail to be found in the kindling?
Track Name: I tend to Dream
I TEND TO DREAM

She said, ’I’ve grown tired of this masquerade, this human pain parade
One thousand tears I have cried for you.
And who is this god above to prescribe to me this luck?
It’s permeating my every day to day, without you….’

I tend to dream, to dream, to dream about you….

He said, ‘I ‘ve grown tired of your make up façade your little female parade
One to many days of my life I’ve spent dying with you, with you
And you ask, ‘who is this God above to prescribe to you this luck
Permeating your every day to day?’ Well I tell you it’s you….

I tend to dream, to dream, to dream about you….

(C –solo. Over verse chords)
(Heavy guit with chorus)

You…. I tend to dream, to dream, to dream about you….
Track Name: N.A.S.F.C
Not a song for Christina-N:A:S:F:C:

She said pitter patter if it all shatters it just doesn’t matter
in my glass cage, enraged, onstage
with closet pain for no proven gain

And if I should stubble, reach out and tumble,
shuffle and bumble
I would still be heard to grumble,
‘did you, did you really mean to fumble?

Ah ah ah ahhh
ah ah aah aah
Oh wow oh wow

What a meaningful thing to say
to be happy all pain must be waylaid
so don’t
be saved by you
so don’t be saved by you
don’t be saved by you
be saved by saved by saved by you
oh be saved by saved by saved by you
be saved by saved by saved by you
saved by you

He said pitter patter
with all this going on I might just shatter
in my last days I’ve had to put a lot to the grave
but if we should stumble, reach out and tumble,
shuffle and bumble,
I know I will be heard to grumble,
‘did you did you really mean to fumble?)


Ah ah ah ahhh
Oh wow oh wow
ah ah aah aah
Oh wow oh wow
ah ah aah aah

What a meaningful thing to say
to be happy all pain must be waylaid

so don’t
be saved by you
so don’t be saved by you
don’t be saved by you
be saved by saved by saved by you
oh be saved by saved by saved by you
be saved by saved by saved by you
saved by you

PART-TIME PARATROOPER

She said, ’When you’re gone, I’ll cry every evening.’
(Come on baby what about you?)
I said I’ll return because of your smile (your smile)
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
She said if you fly I will be writhing in fantasy
(C’mon baby what should I do?)
I said I’ll return because of your smile
C’mon baby what about you?

The adrenaline is keeping me stronger for longer it’s running through m y veins
The only way I stay alive is by keeping this picture of you.
She said that you need me to feel and you feel me to see me
(C’mon baby tragedy you)
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you

I asked what’s to blame; You need me to see me to seethe at me
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
I know all your names I’ve seen them grow
(C’mon baby what can I do?)
And over the years you know that you dream to be with me
(C’mon baby what should I do?)
I know all the names because I gave them to you… (to you, to you)


The adrenaline is keeping me stronger for longer it’s running through my veins
The only way I stay alive is by keeping this picture of you.
She said how you dream you know you’ll be near me; (if) you need me!
(C’mon baby what should I do?)

The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you (.ummm um umm)
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you
The only way I’ll stay alive is by keeping this picture of you (.ummm um umm)

Track Name: She Covets
Squeeze me, without lobotomy
Rinse away your frozen irony
For she, she Refutes all shame
For they cannot help but to, to

She covets everything that she sees

A fake breeze, we’re calling honesty
Rinse away the one I used to be
For he, refutes all blame
For they cannot help but to, to

She covets everything that she sees

And there is a crack between you
But don’t you go and crack continue
And if you live and die your life as a secondary
Will you still grow to be it?
Will you grow to be human anymore?

Squeeze me, with promised irony
Joke away your lack of destiny
For they, refuse all blame
For we cannot help but to

We covet everything that we see
We covet everything that we see



And there is a crack between you
But don’t you go and crack continue
And if you live and die your life as a secondary
Will you still grow to be it?
Will you grow to be human anymore?(anymore)

She covets everything that she sees…….
Track Name: There's Only You
SYSTEMS GOVERN RATIONAL-PART 1
(There’s only you)

If falling is only the half way,
I don’t know what I’ll do
Devotion is so critical
It brings us ever closer in view

But if I don’t, if I don’t, have you….
Steps forward become minimal
As systems govern our rational

Oooohhh there’s only you
There’s only you

The motion of falling is appalling
And the mind betrays
But follow with life with your yearning
And your world will fall into place

Cos if I don’t, if don’t have you…..
We might as well all be sentinels
As systems govern your rational

There’s only you
There’s only you…………
Track Name: T.V.
T.V.

Big, black eyes, that could
Never ever disguise
(she said) the oceans of devotion that comprises your soul
With the power of a glower that could swallow me whole!

Give me the time, to be
Sa-tis-fukin-fied
She said, ‘these lessons in depression are devouring me,
Because the pressure to give pleasure is such a petty conceit

(she said) 2 and 2 :

Deep inside I know you’re terrified of it

Deep inside I know you’re terrified Because all motive is unclear
And it holds your r own despair

So qualify the little part of me
Rejecting my own destiny
And tell me that I learned it all from my T.V.
She said, ‘Worship me
I’m picture perfect for reality
So beg upon your knees and suffer me,
Though I am no more than a dream.’
SOLO


She said, ‘Covet me
I’m picture perfect for reality
Reject all sense of destiny
Cos we learn it all from our T.V.’


Big, black eyes, that could
Never ever disguise
(she said) the oceans of devotion that comprises your soul
With the power of a glower that could swallow me whole!

(she said) 2 and 2 :

Deep inside I know you’re terrified- of it

Deep inside I know you’re terrified because all motive is unclear
And it holds your own despair

I’m picture perfect for reality
So qualify the little part of me
That says I learned it all from my T.V.
She said worship me
Get down upon your knees and suffer me
Reject all sense of selfless destiny
Bow down before your T.V.
Track Name: The Break Up
THE BREAK UP

O o o over! Where the words that she said
As she leapt form the bed
To get her clothes and walk the hell away from you
O o o over! Poison pen, poison note
That poisoned letter she wrote
With every word designed to choke the throat of you

And she said,’ ‘If you are satisfied you will be
Aware of all the flaws inside of me
But if you are not satisfied, you will be
One of the perpetrators of the flaws you see growing in me

(oh babe) Until it’s over

Track Name: The Nun
THE NUN

She said, ’I loved you, every day of my life. (oh-oohh)
And I bowed down and I worshipped you (oh-oohh)
Every day of my life

You were never, ever there for me,
In the greatest time of need- in those days of my life
No you were never ever there for me (oohh-one day)
In those days of my life.

So unless you (yeah you) Instantly
Break out of the cover and reveal yourself as other than a fantasy
She said, ‘Unless you (yeah you) Instantly
Break out of the cover and reveal yourself as other than a fantasy

She said, ‘of my human need- (fantasy)
Memory-(fantasy)
She said, ‘Of my human greed.’ (fantasy)
Memory (yeah)

And I bowed down and I worshipped you (oh-oohh)
Every day of my life

But where you ever, ever there for me,
In the greatest days of need?
Where you ever, ever there for me,
In the greatest time of need

So unless you (yeah you) Instantly
Break out of the cover and reveal yourself as other than a fantasy
