Jean-Paul DuQuette Honestly, with all the new rave, synthwave and various sundry '80s retro scenes out there, it' s sort of shocking that Material Action isn't better known. This is basically slightly melancholic new wave, with dreamy production and an emphasis on synths. Definitely worth dropping $1 on. Favorite track: Harm Has Come.

Track Name: Television
Watching the t.v.
Lonely sofa scene
Cut to the blue screen
Better just go to bed and die

Alone
Alone

Hours, no value
You were not my friend
Display, I still need you
Just go to bed and cry </3

Alone
Alone

And there's no one else but me
Seems like no one else can see
Just me and my t.v.

It watches over me and you
Records all the things we do
It watches you
Track Name: No Trust
No trust
Track Name: Harm Has Come
Stare into the night
The knife against your skin
Black ocean of despair
Their ears against the door

Find the will to disappear
Head pressed to the bedsheet tear
Harm has come
Their eyes against the windowpane

When I first met you
You were like a magazine
You captured their attention
But you were broken by their love

Lies
Neon lights
Hypnotized
Advertized
City
Used
Crisis
Betrayal
Violent
Beat-down
Low rent emotion
Sex

They whisper in the dark
Hear them whisper in the dark

Lies:
I've met nice girls too
Thought they were nicer than you
Kept their legs closed
Just like the nice boys taught them to

Cut
Lies
Cut away your faith
Cuts upon her face
Lies
Track Name: Strange Door
Lock the door
I can't feel my heart
Can't see beyond
Emotional response
Lock my self
Lock my heart
Track Name: Cold Night
Cold

I could show you
I could show you what it's like
When your heart goes
When your heart grows cold

I could show you
Show you how it feels
How it feels inside
When your heart grows cold

Emptiness
Track Name: The Falling
Just a dream
So far away
Something good
That never came

Waking up
The hole remains
Alone again
I fall away

Just a dream
Fall away

Your love
It falls away
No love
I get no love
It falls away
Track Name: Her Shadow / Just A Memory
I'm just a memory
I'm just a memory

Feels like yesterday
These years long passed
That you and I could see ourselves in love forever
In your mind is where I'll always be
A memory

I'm just a memory
So bury me
Track Name: When It Ends
I know I've felt this way before
Alone with you

Like it's over
It's over

It's over
