about

"Enigma of the Absolute" is a cover of the Dead Can Dance song found on their album Spleen & Ideal. This unique version features the ethereal vocals of Melissa R Kaplan from the band Universal Hall Pass. Both k*ss*n and Melissa were in the 90's electronic rock band Splashdown.

lyrics

Saloman hung down her head
Laid bare her heart
For the world to see
She craved for intimacy

Through darkened doors
Her aspect veiled with indecision
Gazed out to sea
She craved lucidity

Cast adrift
From past relationships in her life
Hoisted up the ideal
This was her saving grace

Seas of rage that once assailed her
Concern for the truth
Had past her by
And left her high and dry

In her saviors arms
In her saviors arms
In her saviors arms
In her saviors arms

Across the sea
Lies the fountain of renewal
Where you will see?
The whole cause of your loneliness

Can be measured in dreams
That transcend all these lies
And I wish, and I pray
That there may come a day

For a saviors arms
For a saviors arms
For a saviors arms
For a saviors arms
