It’s getting harder for me to be alright Eyes adjusting to the dark The momentum of all these last resorts Built inside of me I always believed there was a way To get out of end times Everything I was or said I am Breaking inside of me I hope you’ll think of me one day But even in my dreams I wasn’t good to you I know I’ll fall apart someday But even in my dreams I’ve always avoided you I see a rose and feel disdain The adoration and boredom of it All the tired repose that it gives Dead and meaningless I don’t wanna be bitter anymore Bitterness is the sin I wanna be soft and innocent Soft as any palm I hope you’ll think of me one day But even in my dreams I wasn’t good to you I know I’ll fall apart someday But even in my dreams I never trusted you Just got into town I passed by your house last night No light Don’t ever come back to me Never I’ve gone my whole life looking for something to love I can’t find that thing To love Please turn away the bad thing
2.
I was told I can leave now But I just wade in this world I don’t fear the new day I just sigh for the old I love all you people I love you all I said it before But that don’t make me any better I can’t wait anymore In the spirit world now Desire It’ll never stop You just go You escape into the blue room now There lies All that you’ve done

Things have never been worse I try to change my life But only end up worse It’s written with a sure hand But so loath to speak Another year in its grips All night and no release Presaging the end Then the moon one day over-full Surrounding me Surrendering You’ll always be more alive yesterday Surrounding me Beauty Is to feel A change in front of you It comes so quickly Then it leaves Quicker than it’s seen And it’s so bittersweet That you bend Around it That you breathe Into it You feel adrift without it Dying without it

about

CEREMONY make their Relapse Records debut with their highly ambitious new album, 'In the Spirit World Now'! The album sees CEREMONY at the height of their creative output, as the always-evolving Rohnert Park quintet take various influences from post punk and rock to create one of the summer's most compelling and infectious records.

"In the Spirit World Now" is full of layered sonic fury and anxiety, each song building up to a point and then descending down through a militant, catchy hook. “Turn Away the Bad Thing” sets the tone, guitars climbing around the driving bass line, as Ross Farrar sings, “It’s getting harder for me to be alright/Eyes adjusting to the dark/The momentum of all these last resorts built inside of me.” Songs like “Presaging the End” and “Calming Water” feel romantic and distressed, while “Further I Was” and “Years of Love” are driven by Farrar’s rebellious energy as he repeats the hook with a deadpan realness. “Years of love can be forgotten/In the hatred of a day.” But the true stand-out is the title track, “In the Spirit World Now”, a haunting pop gem with a sticky chorus and lead synth riff that plants itself in your head as Farrar chants the track’s name over and over like a mantra.

“In the Spirit World Now" is a sort of nebulous and ectoplasmic place where things may not be quite what they seem,” he says. “It means sh*t is about to get weird.” The album marks a milestone for this Northern California punk outfit who have stayed true to themselves as songwriters throughout massive sonic growth throughout their storied career.
