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
