Ships that pass in the night

Touch Touch Touch

And they
Brush
Feed
Rush
Speed
Hush
Bleed

Touch Touch Touch

Floating bodies, float on water
Is it pleasure is it pain?
Shadows calling, siren warning
Is it pleasure is it pain?
Or is that the way it sounds when your heart is being drained?

Spirits roaring in the darkness
So much treasure, so much rain
Drifting, sighing, sinking, flying
Is it pleasure is it pain?
Or is that the way it sounds when your heart is being drained?

Ships that pass in the night

Touch Touch Touch

Download the free mp3 remix of Tall Ships That Pass In The Night
Carol Lipnik guests as vocalist on this new version, with a chilling human Theremin imitation (that’s the spooky electronic thing on the Beach Boys’ Good Vibrations). Her voice’s arrival in the second part of the remix throws the whole song into a complete other-worldly space. She is another writer whose views come at the world from a different direction.
