Astari Nite – Ashtray Ballet

Astari Nite - Ashtray BalletHere is the new ‘Astari Nite’ song ‘Ashtray Ballet’ and I really like this one. Reminds me a bit of the electro rock times of the mid-90s. I’m thinking of masterpieces like ‘Ultra’ by ‘Depeche Mode’ or ‘Host’ by ‘Paradise Lost’.

Generally, I’m always very ambivalent about ‘Astari Nite’. Either I have no interest in the song at all or I think it’s amazing. There’s not much space in between. I have to admit that the generic guitar solo in the bridge annoys me, but 10 seconds of ear pain are good to bear in an otherwise fantastic song.

Lyrics of ‘Astari Nite – Ashtray Ballet’

The innocent, peculiar girl, I know
She wore the crown of everything
Drags her heart, across the stars, they burn
Torn apart, by envy

Now I lie, with someone else instead
How I try, you meant so much more than them
Do you forgive me, for the things I, never did for you
Hush up, I’m blinking, thousand words, never meant for

The waves, will break from past mistakes
Lonely valentine, enjoy the ending
Hold me now once more, pictures bleeding, all around my world

Now I lie, with someone else instead
How I try, you meant so much more than them
Do you forgive me, for the things I, never did for you
Hush up, I’m blinking, a thousand words, never meant for

Never let me go, I am waiting, waiting
Doused in sorry now, I keep waiting, waiting
Before the night slips through, she cuts my wrist, this much is true

Never let me go, I keep waiting, waiting, for you
