Blame

in dsound •  13 days ago


Another one of my old band The Queens Starfish, later Starfish this recording is from 1998 done in Berlin Germany where I lived at the time. This song as all Starfish Songs was co- composed with my friend and then bandmate Sebastian Katzer. Most of the lyrics of this song are from the Lord Byron Poem Stanzas to Augusta (slightly tweaked and rearranged ), who was his sister. As a young teen I would imagine myself finding a timeportal and hanging out with Byron and the Shelly’s yes I was an odd kid and am in truth still an odd adult :) Enjoy!

Lyrix :

Yet I blame not the world, nor despise it,
Nor the war of the many with one—

From the wreck of the past, which hath perish’d,
Thus much at least I may recall,
It hath taught me that what I most cherish’d
Deserved to be dearest of all

And when winds are at war with the ocean,
It is that they bear me from thee

Though trusted, thou didst not disclaim me,
Though parted, it was not to fly,
Though watchful, ’twas not to defame me,
Nor, mute, that the world might belie.

They may crush, but they shall not contemn
They may torture, but shall not subdue
’Tis of thee that I think—not of them.

Though human, thou didst not deceive me, 25
Though woman, thou didst not forsake,
Though loved, thou forborest to grieve me,
Though slander’d, thou never could’st shake,

’Tis of thee that I think—not of them.

Though the rock of my last hope is shiver’d,
And its fragments are sunk in the wave,
Though I feel that my soul is deliver’d
To pain—it shall not be its slave.

Though trusted, thou didst not disclaim me,
Though parted, it was not to fly,
Though watchful, ’twas not to defame me,
Nor, mute, that the world might belie.

Yet I blame not the world, nor despise it,
Nor the war of the many with one—
Nor the war of the many with one—
