I love this track! Just found it on a new VNV Nation CD I acquired. Lovely lyrics and the best pounding tune I've heard in a long while. VNV Nation are fast becoming my favorite modern band. It's nice to find some modern music I enjoy. I think my wife may be getting sick of me dancing around the house howling this!!!

I may have a go at knocking out a similar styled tune myself.

"So many little things followed me
So many little things that bothered me
But I found my answer
From all the chaos that followed me I have found my answer
I've told you before, don't follow me because I am not your answer

Don't follow me

But I found my answer

I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
These are the words I say to myself everyday
I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
Tell me what ritual I should have today
But I'm not alone
I've resolved so many things and set myself free

I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
The words I say to myself every day
I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
Such a stupid ritual to have to say to myself everyday
I'm not alone but I found my answer and set myself free
I'm not unhappy

I'm not alone and I'm not unhappy
Not alone and I'm not unhappy
I'm not afraid and I'm not unhappy

I'm not afraid, I'm not afraid
I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
These are the words I say to myself everyday
I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy I'm not afraid

I am not alone, I am not afraid, I'm not unhappy
The words I say to myself everyday
I am not alone, I am not afraid, I am not unhappy
Such a stupid ritual to have to say to myself everyday
I'm not alone but I found my answer and set myself free, I'm not unhappy."



Live version!

In reply to stroppygob: Futureperfect is a pretty good album, though perhaps a little repetitive. I've not heard anything VNV Nation have released since then.

In a (vaguely) similar theme, you might enjoy "Epitaph" by Frontline Assembly.

In reply to Mike Peacock: Many thanks for the tip Mike.

"Beloved" off "Futureperfect" is also an awesome track.

In reply to stroppygob: Indeed it is, I think Beloved or maybe Carbon is my favourite track.

In reply to Mike Peacock: If I can work out how to do it, my plan is to doa "playlist" of their best tracks for my ipod. Then I can have a string of motivational songs for my gym work, and when doing other physical things ;-)

In reply to stroppygob:

Well here's my stab at something in the same style. There's no vocals, anyone who has heard me sing will be eternally grateful.

Any and all feedback, even if it's only "it's sh!te" welcomed. Please note, I've not tried to replicate the song, that woudl be pointless, just to catch the style of it.
