Into Your Arms


Body of Mine

Everyone faces choices about sharing their body. Even some religions have a ceremony about eating the body and drinking the blood. Hmm.

The Absolution - Hands of The Clock

 

For The Wicked

Nick Stewart originally wrote these lyrics in the late 1980s while he was the singer for the Washington, D. C. Gothadelia band, Fear of Man. They were inspired by the 1979 printing of the book, The Spiral Dance, by Starhawk and of course, the obvious title reference. On moving to St. Thomas, Nick found a 20th anniversary edition of the book and there is a good chance we will here more of The Absolution's music inspired by this lady's insightful writings.

The Absolution - Hands of The Clock

 

Hands of the Clock

Nick Stewart has written a few songs that aren't tales of seduction, (okay maybe three) and this is a song about mortality and does contain the immortal lines, "Sands in the hour glass, fall like tears, of forlorned love."

The Absolution - Indiscretion

 

Indescretion

"In your darkest place you lied to me, you lied to me. In my darkest place, you lied beneath, you lied beneath." (Or should it be laid beneath?)

The Absolution - Into The Light

 

Into The Light

So, "Out of the darkness and into the light," is common theme of evangelical conversion to believing that which is not true (or even believable). This is a much more believable tale. "All the answers you have questioned, all the questions lay threadbare," and "On the altar of disenchantment, sacrifice your anxious past," certainly reflect this anti "enlightenment" theme, plus this song has really cool guitar playing.

Into Your Arms


Into Your Arms

"Into your arms, again there I fall. Into your arms, again I fall, again I'm falling." To embrace the bliss of losing oneself into the joyful embrace of the other culminates in an eruption of rapturous passion.

The Absolution - Let Yourself Go

 

Let Yourself Go

In this song of seduction and submission, Nick captures the frisson of breaking down mental barriers so that the physical barriers can be crossed. An aura of protection is cast so that the souls can unify in physical bliss. "Tell me all your hopes and dreams, so I can fulfill them, like I want to fulfill you..."

The Absolution - Let Yourself Go

 

Sacrifice

No greater gift than to give oneself. An offering or entreaty to greater good through unity. The line,“A woman´s chastity is a sty in the devil´s eye” is a made up Irish Proverb by Ingmar Bergman from his 1960 film.

The Absolution - For The Wicked

 

Submit to Me

This cover art was so fully realized, it became the theme for the full length album. This song embodies the original inspiration of the Absolution: Seduction and Submission.Okay, so this is probably the original tale of seduction and submission. The verses are A-C and the choruses are B-C, which makes this a 3-chord song that any band can cover. And earlier mixes were the only "The Absolution" song with a flute intro. Plus the CD art features the fetish model, Isabella!

The Absolution - Prenez Moi

 

Prenez-Moi

Not to be confused with the 1992 song, Take Me, which will eventually be remixed, this song of seduction and submission is a blatant recapitulation of the themes of that classic disco tune, "Voulez vous couchez avec moi." Are you ready Toulon?

As one of the more recent songs, it features more industrial grit than other works. More grit is great, unless you are varnish.
