Survive 03:49
This world is turning into something real Leaving no time for us to heal Tell me what you know, tell me what you really feel I was even born to kill But now I am gonna fight to not be killed Time to survive We will never die, we will never die Hide by my side And we’ll leave this world behind Tell me what you know, tell me what you really feel I was even born to kill But now I am gonna fight to not be killed { Time to survive We will never die, we will never die Hide by my side And we’ll leave this world behind } x2 Take me away tonight Take me away tonight Take me away tonight Take me away Take me away...
2.
Since the time you were gone You left my heart full of nothing There’s nothing that can be done I miss you friend so much I’m dying I’m feeling that I could be wrong (There’s nothing I can do about it) (x3) See you in another life another time (x2) { I missed you Many times before Many times before } (x2) { See you in another life another time See you in another life another time } (x2)
3.
There is something you should know I’ve been hiding my frustrations Contemplating the worst emotions It takes a long time to find the best solution But there is something you should know I am wondering, is this love a superstition? There’s no time to think right now What matters, they told us to keep running They told us to keep running (x2)
4.
Crystal Cave 03:46
There is something I had to say when you were with me last night I can feel the pain you have it’s hiding really inside There’s a crystal cave in both of us, don’t you know? And I don’t understand if should I stay or should I go Let me hide that fucking pain inside my little crystal cave (x2) I can feel the pain tonight (x10)
5.
Adolescent 04:52
I don’t know If I can detest you You made me feel That you never cared about me And I don’t know If you ever (ever) said What you feel And what you felt Cause you never cared (x2) { Hey you! You never cared about me! } (x3) Hey you! Why you never cared about me? { How does it feel? How does it feel? How does it feel to fall in love with me? } (x3)

ACLUC 01:33
( Instrumental )
7.
I have never ever been ashamed of myself through these dirty days It has never been so hard, my heart one day will fall apart It will never be the same Forget all your stupid prayers I am already crucified But I promise you I never die Never die I will never die I know, you’re gone But I am ready for the glorious crucifixion They will witness, what it means to be alive and dead inside I’ll resist Again, again, again... I will never die... ( Cause I will never die... )
8.
There’s nothing to be worried Although it happened before Are you really saying something? It’s too late the damage is done Was it really out of nothing? Cause you never let me know Are you really saying something? Do they really wanna know? But anyway You never liked it when they said You’re not ok You never let me really know You never really say You never made complaints You always made them stay But you never, you never, you never liked them anyway { You never, you never, you never liked them anyway } (x4)
9.
Testament 04:07
Walking down the street late at night Thinking what to say and what to write I left a testament, it’s about the solitude you left I am telling you I have left a testament, for you Did you wonder how I felt last night? Cause I have thought about it It wasn’t right So I have to tell you this When love is lost But dreams keep living I would like to know if you can still hear me I never knew what’s love meaning I’ll find out if I keep swimming { My woman This is a testament for you } (x4) Don’t know how I feel (x8) { My woman This is a testament for you } (x2) Do you ever ( feel the same )?...
10.
She's staying around or else she's going away It could be forever or it might be a day Or maybe forever I call her a mercury girl She's building me up and then she's knocking me down Like a factory chimney in a northern town And I am demolished I call her a mercury girl She never sees me till the sun goes down Lives in a secret world Says her career is in another town Life with a mercury girl One day once when I've got some time I try to hold her but she wouldn't be mine She slipped through my fingers and I missed the mercury girl She came back to me with her mocking eyes She told me she loved me but it could have been lies And life can be up and down, life with a mercury girl Life can be up and down, life with a mercury girl She never sees me till the sun goes down Lives in a secret world Says her career is in another town Life with a mercury girl She's staying around or else she's going away It could be forever or it might be a day Or maybe forever I call her a mercury girl She's building me up and then she’s knocking me down Like a factory chimney in a northern town And I am demolished I call her a mercury girl And I am demolished I call her a mercury girl Life with a mercury girl (x4)

You and I Have left behind So many times Memories of love But I will try I never lied I saw you cry, I never let it go I see you...

about

On January 31st, 2020, M!R!M will release their third full-length, The Visionary, out on Avant!Records.

Still featuring Jack Milwaukee at the helm along with selected collaborators as supplementation, 'The Visionary' is a further evolution in M!R!M sound, which showcases how the musician’s vision has evolved throughout the years.

As with every M!R!M album, Milwaukee sticks to his magic formula: writing and recording everything you hear in his bedroom in east London.

‘’Within these walls I cherish all my hopes and face all my fears. This room knows me best, there’s no other place where I could feel more comfortable and focused..’’, Milwaukee explains.

Holding firmly to the vibes that recall the most dreaming 80’s, Jack Milwaukee this time blends together that typical FM synth timbre, which has always characterized the artist, with deeper and sumptuous sounds found within the notes of Mellotron and sax; overcoming previous Lo-Fi approaches to undertake a solid, prominent and more mature path.

The Visionary is a collection of songs pieced together in a meaningful and harmonious way where the storytelling is very vivid and fundamental. Trapped between hope and melancholy each track evolves smoothly into another one until it gets to a mystical end, a point of no return. From syncopated punchy bass lines drove by solid drum beats to elegant violin quartets accompanied by almost religious choirs, The Visionary is an engaging work that doesn’t remain only inside the robes of shimmering synth-pop tunes but also explores more intimate and private territories as an ode to the most deep feelings.

Pulling from the ‘pop' approach of mid 80's synth-pop pioneers like New Order, The Wake, Tears for Fears to most iconic figures of the Italian 80’s era, M!R!M dialed in on a clear understanding of its own specific sound, which has since evolved.

The Visionary is the ultimate unified vision of M!R!M’s work, it’s the sweetest transition of the most nostalgic daydream.

Milwaukee says about the album: “The record comes out of experiencing a lot of emotional turmoil caused by the loss of my best friend at the end of 2017 and wanting to create something that could pay tribute to her and to our friendship. The Visionary is the manifesto of those who decided to be not afraid of being different despite people’s judgment because being yourself always and in any case is the most important thing.”
