about

"Giver Takes" is the second full length album by Pleasance House. It is the culmination of many melodic ideas and varying styles which range from the abstract, to the metaphorical, to the spiritual. Musically, what is presented on the album varies widely from track to track, though when listened to in order, it is (theoretically) designed to flow together.

Track Name: Reunion
Running out of time, letting life, drift by

Falling through the eye of the figure
Endless vacuum
Blackness broods, the self has vanished
Scattered past you

And I just labored
To get you
And I
Hold you, hold you, hold you
And I
Hold you to the moment you die

Who will know
that no, you don’t need me
That you don’t, you don’t know,
But don’t, don’t leave me

Can I, Can I work
to release you
No I, No I, couldn’t find a way

Did you meet your sleeping mother?
Did you, did you meet your sleeping mother?
Can I meet your sleeping mother?
Can I, Can I meet your sleeping mother?

And as I walked away I found I walked right to your arms
Oh you’re not dead you’re not all done
I’ve gone straight to your heart

Oh, you and her, your innocence, was never ever far
And then she woke, you both are here
Renewed and loved so far

Oh, Lifted up, then, from the Earth, you live forever great
And how you have advanced yourself
You shaped your holy place

Oh, Now you are eternally, Shrouded by that grace
That I should hope to know someday
When I see your face

Oh, When I see you and your mother in that lovely space
Spiritual eternity
Is what we’ll embrace
Track Name: After Sinai
You hold out your hand
Acceptance into the promised land
You wait there
You wait there

Could you love me, love me
Could you love me, in yourself

Come on
Would you understand

Could you let me, let me in
Let me, let me in
Let me, let me in
Let me, let me in
Let me, let me in
Let me, let me in
So, please let me in
Let me in, let me
Let me in, let
Track Name: Ewer
Feeling in your golden heart
I feel it glowing with the blood of life
Wondering where it’s going so I know that
You are human

Stopping at the sight and sound
Beats become invasive, ever loud
Running through the veins progressing out
Into the body

High up limbs of crimson trees
Ceasing through eruption, flowing free
Powerful the river, of the leaving
Graceful movement

Might it be far away, yeah it might be
Rushing the blood away, oh it’s frightening
Having the life you lost, is enlightening
Is this the life you lost, yeah it might be
Track Name: Glass Eye
All you need is to dream, of the sad old world, all you need, all you need
Could it be that the dream, of the sad old world, is believed, is believed
All you need is to dream, of a sad world, all you need, all you need
Could it be that the dream, of a sad world, is believed, believed

Clear glass eye, One goodbye
Westward sights homeward die

Westwards sights homeward die
Track Name: Cowl
Deathly things culled
Ruling ropes the grip has told
Last of it waits
Upon you, the cowl of gold

In the skyline
Heavy hands shield as night dies
Telling white lies
Escapading the likewise
By the silo
Hearing turning that flies slow
Of a bright tone
Choirs sing top a wide stone

Lifting the flowing cowl last night
Fleeting importance spins all plight
The veiled and secure hides no more
Of gold it was then having torn

Does it get better? (x4)

Framing infractions; dealing slight
Tailored injustice does none right
They turned to stone I found the floor
And woke up drowning near the shore

Does it get better? (x4)
Will I get better? (x4)
Track Name: Sooth
Hang your eyes
In time
Away
Though you grow
In time
To stay
Rest your sighs
And try
To wait
Summoned soon
Your eyes
To lay

If it’s greater than they really know, they won’t let go of their
Own lives
They don’t need to stay, but why throw away
Their only lives
They don’t need to stay but why throw away
Their lives
Instead, they’d come, to life, revived, they be, alright, they’ll be alright, in time away, away

Graze the gallows
Bishops hallow
Fruitless convey soulless mainstay, and then let go - of thine
Own lives
They don’t need to stay, but why throw away
Their only lives
They don’t need to stay but why throw away
Their lives
Track Name: For Me
Maker scream
For signs past a dream
Lately gone
I need your lead
Foreign cloud
Of night star flees
Painted sky
I run from, alarmed

But all these fears, are the same, no caring
What all, my life, means to who who love me

Flowing out, the majesty
Raining down, a glorious scene
Soul sojourned; cautious be
It’s hard to know, the hardest thing
It’s hard to know, the hardest thing
It’s hard to know, the hardest thing
It’s hard to know, the hardest thing
Thing, Thing

Whoa
Whoa
Whoa
Whoa

Falling down; a travesty
Soaring bound, the air-willed wings
Shameless bird, in morning sing
It hardly knows, the hardest thing
It hardly knows, the hardest thing
It hardly knows, the hardest thing
It hardly knows, the hardest thing
It hardly knows, the hardest thing

My dear, you mistake yourself
All things we have held dear
In waiting for the veil to shade
Your mind, your mind

You came to me
Saw me in your dream
For new things to be
For me you did
And you let me, let me in
You let me, let me in ahhahahahah
You let me, let me ahhahahahahh
You let me, let me in
You let me, let me in
You let me, let me in
