The Center of the Sun
Conjure One
Listen to the audio file Here

Young girl in the market
Music to the men
When the men leave
Her eyes are red
When her eyes are closed again she sees the dark market of above

And she sings
'They say the most horrible things
But I hear violins, when I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done'

Young boy in the market
Follows all the men
When the men leave
He's out of his head
When his eyes are closed again he sees the dark market of above

And he sings
'They break the most beautiful things
But I hear violins, when I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done
I look into your eyes
And I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done'

Center of the sun

Young boy in the market
Sees the girl alone
And asks her
'Have you lost your way home?'
She sings
'You say the most beautiful things, just like my violins'

I look into your eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

When I close my eyes
I am at the center of the sun
And I cannot be hurt
By anything this wicked world has done

'Cause
I hear violins
I hear violins

I hear violins
I hear violins

Center of the sun

I hear ...violins

Conjure One   (music project)  &
R hys Fulber    ( 10 Oct 1970)

Rhythm to set your feet a moving!  Words to set your mind a thinking.

Conjure One is a Canadian electronic music project, headed by Rhys Fulber.

"Rhys Fulber is a Canadian electronic musician and producer. He was a member of Front Line Assembly and Delerium along with Bill Leeb, and now records on his own under the name Conjure One."

"The self-titled album was a fusion of the electronic characteristics of Fulber's previous work -- keyboard-based, with rhythmic dance beats -- and the influences of Middle Eastern music, which inspired ambient melodies more reminiscent of Delerium. A number of songs were more pop-oriented and featured guest vocalists, primarily Poe and Chemda, the latter singing entirely in Arabic. Sinéad O'Connor and Jeff Martin of The Tea Party were also featured."

Genre: Electronic, Alternative, Metal

Poe   (23 Mar 1968)
née Annie Decatur Danielewski

A Dreamer, a fighter, a songwriter, a beautiful voice!

Poe "first hit the modern rock charts in the mid-1990s. She is the daughter of Polish film director Tad Danielewski and his wife, Priscilla Machold. Poe is also the sister of author Mark Z. Danielewski."

"She pursued her undergraduate studies at Princeton University where she organized her first band. Her first album, Hello, was released in 1995. Her debut single, "Angry Johnny", got much radio and MTV airplay. "

"Poe included her late father on Haunted [her second album] after discovering cassette tapes containing his voice." "The album also dovetails with themes and concepts from her brother Mark's horror novel House of Leaves; the CD and the book were released simultaneously. Ann and Mark toured together across America at Borders Books and Music locations in support of the album and the novel."

"A remix of the song, "Hey Pretty", featured Mark reading a passage from the novel. It was released on one of the Haunted singles and became a radio hit. Hey Pretty was also the theme to a short-lived MTV soap opera Spyder Games."

Genre: Folk, Rock, electronica
