about

Visions In Clouds [VIC]

The songs of Visions in Clouds [VIC] are anthems of a faceless generation. The Lucerne, Switzerland quartet’s fusion of post- punk and ‘80s new wave embodies a search for clarity with which anyone can identify.

Meandering guitar riffs and contemplative lyrics are prominent elements in each VIC soundscape, and their somber stage presence only adds to their mystique.

Track Name: Bodies
Black lungs in our bodies,
they feel odd, they feel wrong.
Misplaced in our bodies, in our bodies!
Who built us, years ago?

We are made of tears.

Bodies are forgettable,
Bodies are dispicable,
Humans will evolve from this,
Humans will be made of tears.

I'm living a taugology,
nothing wrong with anarchy!
Take on metal shins now,
take on a helmet and a mask now.

We are made of tears.

Bodies are forgettable,
Bodies are dispicable,
Humans will evolve from this,
Humans will be made of tears.

Humans will be made of tears.
Track Name: Brilliance
I love the symmetry in ordinary space
I love the boredom in a beautuful face
A waste of years so we accept that we age
A taste of bitterness in our common rage

On the first two days
Have you seen the perfect lovers ?
It’s my favourite place
Brilliance is made for our mothers

Fading through the shades of my memories here
Running out of time way too soon
Couldn’t help seeing what a son I have been
Couldn’t help thinking of you

On the first two days
Have you seen the perfect lovers ?
It’s my favourite place
Brilliance is for our mothers

You know what I want
Take me back to where I’m coming from

On the first two days
Have you seen the perfect lovers ?
It’s my favourite place
Brilliance is for our mothers
Track Name: Time
I’m addicted to your shadow
Lose myself in your background
She’s the kind of girl who widdowed
She’s my space and she’s my sound

I’m addicted to your handcuffs
Please don’t put me back to work
I see the future right behind us
Desire woke up next to her

We’ve got not enough time.

Around the edge of my frustration
I can see her taking drugs
Put to sleep your own creation
Pull water on your glimpse of luck

We’ve got not enough time.
Track Name: Smiling For A Minute
Save souls
if nothing else
but not how they treat it

But it should be of
your concern
what they believe in

Visions in a cloud
may keep you
smiling for a minute

But when the mind
ha staken all your
pictures you’re diminished

Hope is only for the living
Hope is only for the brave
If you take me tot he beginning
I will take you to my grave

you know that I’m exhausted after all this
You know I’m not afraid
___________________________________________

And you know it’s not sorrow
it is a new stage
and you know it’s not borrowed
it is a new age

Falling for the lies of tomorrow
I might be too naive
but I cannot rehabilitate you
for that you grieve

Hope is only for the living
Hope is only for the brave
If you take me tot he beginning
I will take you to my grave

You know that I’m exhausted after all this
You know I’m not afraid
Whatever you feel like doing you should do
But please, leave me out of this
Track Name: Ten
Between red light-brick walls
And a broken screen
We live behind a billboard
In an uncoated dream

Due to anyones fault
We will end up here
Wouldn’t you let me in
Why would you just pass me like that

I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
I wouldn’t pay too much.

For a day like my birth
Or my last few weeks
Sympathy turned on me
As you did to me

I am feeling wreckless
Like a broken stone
In a cab to my place
Doesn’t really feel like my home

I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
I wouldn’t pay much to be here.
Where you go it’s all the same to me.

All the lines they lead to same signs
Forever captured in time
We fram memories and lies
There’s nothing left to admire
Track Name: Winter
The days we know like snow so white and freezing cold
Today we’re fine we’re bold, it’s true I hope.
Look out the window and you know I’m here
Between the trees, I’m alone
Singing songs I don’t wanna hear
And I don’t believe in miracles anymore.
Don’t believe in miracles anymore.

So I feel home
Everytime I fall into your arms I know
It’s better than it has been before
You’re younger than you always thought
And beauty’s hypothetical
Don’t believe in miracles anymore.
Track Name: Masquerade
You are covered in old clothes
You bought them at the local store
They fit the colours of your eyes
At least they told you they would

They won’t bring you no salvation
Cannot find no motivation
Survival is a desperation
We are just a masquerade-sensation

What’s the point in getting older
What’s the point in getting all sad
You’re harrassed and getting colder
Today we’re gonna write what we read in the past

They won’t bring you no salvation
Cannot find no motivation
Survival is a desperation
We are just a masquerade-sensation

If you are not what you’re looking for
You really should change
I know it’s not too easy
I know it’s not too strange
But if you know what you want
It shouldn’t be too hard, should it?
Track Name: Come Back To ME
Face to face we sit and wait but you don’t wanna talk
Desperate signs of tears in my eyes but you don’t wanna talk
how can you be as cold as you are in your heart
Haven’t we been seperate for too long by now
oh,

Come back to me

Taste my tongue it’s my soul and it’s my blood
Believe in a god that will sink you in floods
I wanna hope that you are always right when you talk
‚caus if you’re wrong then I’m the only one who calls
so,

Come back to me

How could you go out again
your face in tears again
Draw some fake eyebrows again
and you hide, oh, you hide yourself
