NEW SONGS!

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

The linking of the border rievers with brexit has amused me. The mental image of cattle battering Farage into the ground as he attempted a heist was priceless. Though it has to be said that, the recently oddly silent, Mark François looks like a man who 'appreciates' livestock.

Just to add,

On the Beach is a 1957 novel by Nevil Shute. Nuclear war had broken out, and the radiation is traveling across the sea to the Australian shoreline. Hence the name, waiting for the fallout "on the beach". It's also Navy lingo for retired from service and an obscure TS Eliot reference. :)

I seeded a markov chain to generate some new Sisters songs. Words 100% by Von. Titles and formatting by me.

You're Welcome.

==========================================
SECONDHAND

we are secondhand
public highway
everything is open
morals dance in the train
rain rain

i look on the night
believer won't break the rhine
word deserve threatened
job calling bad suicide

and methedrine motorcade kept somehow
temple of yellow sedan
fire label delta rain down

and shadow yeah
aside morning

tell me save me from poor clowns
guess cigarette
lights in the days
sounds of angel rain down down

in the black black and given
don't like the voices
discard futile house
grace wind broken
contact

=======================================
WRECKAGE AND NAPALM

stand
stains
will

out of shiva gimme loan and ashes
just walk together
she says no no soon
nearly great on a song

i've lost in the clouds
show me weird and abused
west by two worlds splinters
those pagans go there the sea

ninety-four illusion
job mirror
fitting wreckage
word reformation napalm

girls like she will
i saw the wire on the temple of your choice
lies

give me
that the doorbell grace

nothing but it
like nineteen fifty-nine
betting of love for hours

i wore

==========================================
GIANT CANDY WIND

sit
igor settled moves

see
i had no stops
sodium haze for me

your feet
vision about the knife,
flow kirkstall, damned field
retake, raining kino in black lawn wheeling
clowns girl
thinking fatal girl
nights i don't care such
see the sun subsides
hear empire now
sing channel here's engels
remember what they're susanne let it is what i've

heave
gave madness hizbollah
told dogs nerves ride england fades sssssss

tread quiet giant candy wind
innocence daughters of mercy
isis forget
matter of love
in monochrome, but simulated

Hmmm, we can do a bit better by tweaking some parameters, at the cost of sounding a bit more derivative

===========================
EDGE OF A VOICE

have the wire on a pre-owned song
for the trigger baby cover front and run

to and the wire i could be the falling over
sitting here alone i can keep my heartland
heartland heartland heartland

my mind still believe when you
the hum of love
like this place wait for a body electric
through the edge of a voice above me

give me reality
show me look before they say
in hand in the water and the temple of mercy
filled with a healing hand
in this car with a hard to be found
words are coming down

===========================
SHE WILL FIND ME

corners where the curtain
i can make us sing dream of pink
and around me and the wire on my
name to tell me one to cry

it's a song or how when
dog we're worlds and a
lighthouse keeper in the fire
in here now i've lost
in hand holds blood money money
and i keep no no no no stops
no no longer

i have a reformation so when
fingers though even this hot-wired sedan
i saw the west a place is falling down
call me more not true and the number three

she will find me
call

==========================
NORTH EYES (YOUR BOAT)

north eyes
rise dead days
a look
your boat

all there theirs ours lost in the lipstick
on the water come the blinding flash blue
another shade of war and the ghost with time

down stream
down down
got the wave

when placed against the death
with harder to find another
i drive lost and lies broken
and the way the western dream
when the straight life through
the heat inside but all
the move say you calling
not
fall me

but the way the door
we cannot be feeling
the same way too real
is lost for the ...
in monochrome, but simulated

Yeah, not much. If we tweak them params to be more coherent, it quickly turns into just a string of lines pulled from different songs.
Which I guess also has comedic value:

=======================
FLOOD RECEIVER THINGS

down stream
down the river there's a ship will carry you
down river down stream
down the river there's a ship will carry you
down river down stream
down the line
where's your wide receiver
over the line
everybody got assignations
i got nothing to say i ain't said before
i bled all i can i won't bleed no more

in a flood of your tears in sackcloth and ashes and secondhand passion
and stolen guitars

but in here there's nothing but the good things

====================

Limitations of a small corpus ... maybe if I mixed in lyrics from The M****** and GD too...

The 'and stolen guitars' bit coming from an AI trying to yield sisters songs, using sisters songs is just the epitome of irony :lol:


Also, didn't Von accused Hussey of writing half-ass lyrics with random words? If so, you might have a Mish song generator in your hands mate

I think Eldo's accusation against Hussey was specifically an over-reliance on a rhyming dictionary. YMMV.

You might be onto something. I grabbed the Mish lyrics from the start up to Aura (2001) - that was about all I could stand, and it's roughly the same sized corpus as all the Sisters lyrics available.
The output is... uh, maybe better? First three tries below, formatted and titled by me.

Needs that rhyming dictionary though.

===============================
PEACEFUL WORLD COCKROACH

crawly under again
wanna fly with a feast
cos daddy's going to hell
black mountain mist

it's wasting away
a bell tolls and rescue me deep
so please believe

in rags begging at this all again
when you ever needed to neverland
and jesus saves
island in the same

i'm always got no devil
so sleep 'cause you're innocent
and the dragons and i'm all away
for you feel your arms

and around a peaceful world cockroach
i build the kingdom come
and masquerade as the graves

i can't....

===============================
SAVAGED TO THE MOON

fields hand
biting my arms held out under
so tired i can raise me down
you believe in the whispers stole
into his hands across the hunter
she'll track you

wash my savaged
to the moon
i can bleed
black like a trail of hands that i build myself

up on and i once would you taunt with me
don't come
left to cause you make me happy and again

and shell shocked eyes
we crawled back to see
the heat
sweet

===============================
NO FAITH IN COLOURS

who has no faith in colours
all the raging sea of a carrion feast
cos you're dancing with gentle persuasion

leaves me deliverance
deliver me faith

mumbo jumbo
she is america

sweet thing she's learned
atomic oh so say you could feel anymore
and say goodbye 'cause there's a spell
i'll gladly give me take my wounds

names and in chains
i wasn't a wheel

the shame
the free
free home to play

you just what you're trying
to a cigarette and
work late now you

=======================

Ok, gonna stop with this now.

The markov chain generator i used is broken or not working properly.
I feed it with the lyrics of TC and Torch and gave me these 3 sentences:

SING THIS IN SELLING THE DOORS OF YOUR DESIGN LIT THE
THIS CORROSION TO SAY D YOU WOULD HE WALK AWAY GOT
CORROSION TO SEEM GIVING AWAY AND WHAT YOU SAY I FEEL

i don't believe that this is the way to get new material :innocent: :lol: :bat: :bat:

Awwww, bless him, I still can't imagine La Huss attempting a Bowie style fascist arrival at Victoria Stn, no matter how much nose candy he'd ingested. It's only rock'n'roll but he likes it.
