“When you’re gone I never land In Neverland”

Neverland – Marillion (2004) HQ FLAC HD 1080p Video ~MetalGuruMessiah~

“Neverland” was released on Marillion’s 13th studio album, Marbles, in the spring of 2004.

Marillion is one of my favorite bands that I’ve done the least videos for…this is only my second (after “Don’t Hurt Yourself”…also from the Marbles album) effort and hopefully I’ll get my third one finished soon enough. Marbles is my favorite album by the band and if you’re not already a fan, it deserves your attention….the Floyd influence is strong with this one! 🙂

Hopefully the video will find a few new fans for both Marillion and P.J. Hogan’s incredibly beautiful, fantastic film Peter Pan from 2003. If you haven’t yet seen it, trust me, it’s worth a buy on blu-ray because it’s really that amazing and has great repeat value….if not at least give it a rent and and watch it with your family!

Dedicated to my newest, littlest family member beautiful Eve Lynn Mae.

[Lyrics]
When the darkness takes me over
Face down, emptier than zero
Invisible you come to me
..quietly
Stay beside me
Whisper to me “Here I am”
And the loneliness fades

Some people think I’m somethin’
Well you gave me that, I know
But I always feel like nothing
When I’m in the dark alone

You provide the soul, the spark that drives me on
Makes me something more than flesh and bone

At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me

All these years
Truth In front of my eyes
While I denied
What my heart knows was right

At times like these
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love inside me

I want to be someone
I want to be someone
I want to be someone
Who someone would want to be
Someone would want to be

Wendy
Darling
In the kitchen
With your dreams

Will you fly
again
Take to the sky
again

Undo the hooks
Once and for all
Banish the tic tic tic tok tok tok
Again

Will you be
Yourself for me
Cause I can take it
I can stand
Anything

When you’re with me
I can stand it
I can stand

But when you’re gone
I never land
In Neverland

Want to be someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone would want to be
someone someone someone someone

Any fool
Any fool can see
Any fool can see
Your love
Inside me

“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?
