“Nothing to lose is nothing to fight over The shining stars! They’ve seen it all before…Marillion “Marbles”

Don’t Hurt Yourself – Marillion (2004) FLAC Audio 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“Don’t Hurt Yourself” was released in 2004 on Marillion’s 13th studio album, Marbles.

Marillion is another one of those few remaining favorite bands of mine that I’d not yet made a video for even a single song! As much as I love their older stuff (and all their stuff up until their very latest album is amazing), Marbles is my very favorite album they have released. I have been working on a couple of the more epic tracks, but those vids are taking more time…so, here’s a quick edit for another of my favorites from the album worked up with the studio track over footage from a live performance. The sync’s not great (it was kinda tricky to start with and i didn’t really spend much time trying) but I think it will serve the purpose to maybe give a taste of this band to some unfamiliar with their work…and not completely horrify long-time fans! 😉
Marbles, unlike their previous studio album, Anoraknophobia (2001), which was financed largely by a preorder campaign, it was the publicity campaign that fans financed for the album. Those fans who pre-ordered the album received an exclusive 2-CD “Deluxe Campaign Edition” with a booklet containing the names of everyone who pre-ordered before a certain date. The public release date of the retail single-CD version of the album was 3 May 2004 while a plain 2CD version could still be obtained from the band’s website. A limited (500 copy) edition was released on white multicoloured vinyl by Racket Records on 13 November 2006.

The album did not chart in the UK, due to it being packaged with a couple of stickers, which is against chart rules, so despite selling enough for a top 30 position, the album was declared ineligible for the album chart, however its first single “You’re Gone” reached #7 in the UK Singles Chart, thus becoming their first UK top ten hit since 1987’s “Incommunicado”. The follow-up single “Don’t Hurt Yourself” peaked at #16. Classic Rock ranked Marbles #11 on their end-of-year list for 2004.

[Lyrics]
There’ll come a time when all of this is over
Something else will grow and take it’s place
The brand new car: scrap metal in a junkyard
The children playing will grow up and leave home
Put it away this dream you can’t stop dreaming
Put it away this anger and desire
The open road is infinitely hopeful
Take all those memories and throw them in the fire

And don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore

There’s old man on a warm and sunny island
No job, no money, just a smile to call his own
Know what he says?
“The past will only haunt you.
Live for today. Each day’s an open door

Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore”

Nothing to lose is nothing to fight over
The shining stars!
They’ve seen it all before.

Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself
Don’t hurt yourself anymore

Dust keeps coming. Rust keeps coming. Weeds keep growing. Seeds keep growing
Where you going?
