rikm Bringing together compilation tracks and rare material, "Miscellany" stands not only as a testimony to the outstanding quality of tMItG's work to date, but also to the clarity of vision in their sound and musical aesthetic. In a career spanning thirty years, tMitG have always stood at the forefront of the Darkwave genre, and reflecting on these tracks spread across that career, well, it's easy to see why they're so highly regarded, isn't it?

Excellent work from an excellent band...

J.M.M. A wonderful collection of demos and rarities. Vital for any TMITG fan. Some of them were a little trip down memory lane for me. Just brilliant Favorite track: Dreams of the Absent (orchestral).

Softly… Her tears rang loud as lightning And colder than snow Snowflakes falling softly… Glistening world of dreams As snowflakes fall, softly A thousand colors bloom Inside one of none Falling softly… The new day hides my sun I need… Falling softly… Of bright frozen light Of days dressed in white Softly…
When she fair and lonely Finds her heart far from home Beloved of that wondrous place Why did she ever roam? Wandering across the hills at nigh All that she loved is lost To find her way back again Would come at to high a cost Outcast of her own accord And fallen far away She searched her soul for the answers there In the depths of night and day Growing old and weary Walking a forbidden path Taking a journey beyond her sphere She feared the lady's wrath She found her way home at last Raising her arms up high Tears gleamed within her eyes The rose into the sky
the other sun is burning as they bite inside they will find you there standing there fighting with the sky tonight i can't forget why can't we see them the always unaware in the time of yearning this place and energy the smooth motion of the trees
glistening in the snow the world carries on now I find the time has come the truth I face alone tell them they don't love you ask them if they care the coldness of their faces the burden they all bear it finds me clouds parting invades me midnight standing there the winters they have come to cast on brighter days silver stars in blackness slowly find their way as the nighttime falls the children they all gasp closed up tight for dreaming you know they are the last tonight the silent stillness now has come to put the world in motion tonight it must be done
Lully, Lullay, Thou little tiny Child, By, by, lully, lullay. By, by, lully, lullay. O sisters too, how may we do, For to preserve this day. This poor youngling for whom we sing By, by, lully, lullay. Herod the king, in his raging, Charged he hath this day. His men of might, in his own sight, All young children to slay. That woe is me, poor Child for Thee! And ever morn and day, For thy parting neither say nor sing, By, by, lully, lullay. By, by, lully, lullay. By, by, lully, lullay.
Trapped in time At the edge of reality If I could stand And look it in the eyes And change back To the way things were Take everything away So I am not suspended Suspended above my life Hovering around my fears Feelings change You've changed too And I can't speak And I can't know And I'm not alone And I fall And I am far And I am fear And my tears flood And I fall And I can't see And I can't leave And I'm far beyond And I fall And I am near And I am real And my heart longs And I am
our minds and bodies are merely machines absolute chaos
ignorant human's grave in the domain of dreams sleepy wandering fantasies in the air captured addicted spirit in the world of the dead cease to exist, body without a soul, senseless stare when time cascades into the dawn when life clings to the weary frame when binding disbelief takes hold when i dissolve into the rain who can come and go gazing at the stars in the sky journey's difficult for some the passage into the next world comes where angels fly into the dawn bound by chains restrained to walls where devils claw in the night tortured souls igniting flaming fall when time cascades into the dawn when life clings to the weary frame when binding disbelief takes hold when i dissolve into the rain
Miserere, miserere mei Deus Secundum magnam, misericordiam Misericordiam tuam Et secundum multitudinem Miserationum tuarum Dele iniquitatem meam
Hidden 01:11
can you hear them? can you know them? can you find them? they will find you they will know you can you hear them?
the beautiful have come to take me away a deep dark grave awaits it's day the coldness of the flowers is my only warmth for the cold is the darkness that is left all alone cold eyes gaze upon the cold stone tear filled eyes as she mourns all alone the beautiful have come and taken me away the deep dark grave has seen its day the flowers have died the people gone home I'm left cold in the darkness left cold and all alone
Obsession 04:13
Waiting for my own fault I doubt the long road There's a place I must go to Won't I wander alone Into the trail of the wind Across a foreign soil Tired and colder I long to return I'm not my own self A new life She treads behind me A white dream Running from the shadows Running home They're fast behind me A breath each night Where are you now A long continent to go A vision of forests I speak the words…of wisdom


A collection of rare tracks including compilation appearances and other scarce material.
