Complex beautiful melodies, heartfelt lyrics and lush productions make Porcupine Tree’s Steven Wilson one of the most interesting artists around. In a sane music industry (one that values musicianship more than showmanship) he would have gotten much more attention from the masses. Here are a couple of incredible songs and music videos from his latest album:

The Raven That Refused To Sing

Lyrics

Sing for me,
Sing for me.
You can come with me;
You can live with me.

Heal my soul,
Make me whole.

Sister, I lost you,
When you were still a child,
But I need you now,
And I need our former life.
I’m afraid to wake,
I’m afraid to love.

But just because I’m weak,
You can steal my dreams.
You can reach inside my head,
And you can put your song there instead.
Please, come to me.
Please, stay with me.

Please,
Sing,
Cry,
Cry.

Sing to me, raven,
I miss her so much.
Sing to me, Lily,
I miss you so much.

Sing to me, raven,
I miss her so much.
Sing to me, Lily,
I miss you so much.

Sing to me, raven,
I miss her so much.
Sing to me, Lily,
I miss you so much.

Drive Home

Lyrics

Cold windowpane
A car upturned in the rain
Wait on in vain
Don’t try to bear the blame
Deal with the pain
Dust down your wings again

You need to clear away
All the jetsam in your brain
And face the truth
Well love can make amends
But while the darkness always ends
You’re still alone
So drive home

Pause without end
A moment in time suspends
How could she leave?
Release all your guilt and breathe
Give up your pain
Hold up your head again

You need to clear away
All the jetsam in your brain
And face the truth
Well love can make amends
While the darkness always ends
You’re still alone
So drive home

Drive home
Drive home

Drive home
Drive home

Drive home
Drive home

Drive home
Drive home
(Drive home)
