snowlicht Glad I could purchase this masterpiece after being in love with it for years. Love music that blends different instruments/genres and use lyrics rich with imagery - the songs in this album are treasure troves.
"Eon" was the very first song I discovered from Celldweller.
I've probably listened to "It Makes No Difference Who We Are" the most, though I find myself listening to "Against the Tide" frequently the past few weeks.
Very grateful to Celldweller for sharing his amazing works with us. Favorite track: Against The Tide (Deluxe Edition).

slothfulmonk So much to say. One song lead me to an album, which lead me to an artist: Klayton. He is pretty-freakin-fantastic. This album is one of the best examples of that, I think. So each song clearly has its own theme and is complete in its own way. Proper artist can manage that. Not many take the time to make meaningfully emotive transitions. Fewer can have such a breadth and depth of emotion. Genuinely, I believe there to be an entire storied tale here. If you came for a song, prepare for a journey. Favorite track: Louder Than Words (Deluxe Edition).

I am still here waiting I'm anticipating While they are orchestrating To grant the wish that I am making No price too great, no distance too far If I could wish upon a Blackstar It makes no difference where they are They'll grant my wish upon a Blackstar We are all here waiting We're anticipating While they are orchestrating To grant the wishes we are making No price too great, no distance too far If we could wish upon a Blackstar It makes no difference who we are When we have wished upon a Blackstar When we have wished upon a Blackstar They'll grant our wish upon a Blackstar

You must have wished on it Because I saw them riding in on a Blackstar They’d rather chew than spit And they’re full of piss and vinegar There’s no way to persuade them to give up their crusade They’ve come to grant the wish you should have never made Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything They’ll let you try To reverse everything Don’t waste your time Sing Hallelujah because you can’t change anything They move without a sound and their eyes will paralyze who gaze into they'll leave you gagged and bound To the whip of the wish they’ve granted you Looks like they’re over it I saw them riding off on a Blackstar With nothing left to chew, they split Because it makes no difference who you are

So here we go again You’re opening your mouth before you think Your insincerities are clinging to me like the stench of your last drink Did I really hear you say you’re sorry? Hard for me to believe I don’t get how you’re buying your own story You’re piss broke emotionally I’m watching Listening The volume’s always the same Actions speak louder than words do I don’t want to hear dead words from you Actions speak louder than words do I just want to see what you will do So here it comes again A deafening parade of duplicity Birds falling from the sky The air is poisoned by the breath you waste on me The thought of you has become so disappointing Hard for you to believe? You never seem to fail to change the stories You so effortlessly breed It’s time to play again Deception is your game But why would you want to wear that shame? It speaks louder than words

Payback is overdue So much for the I.O.U. My head is stuck underneath God’s thumb I guess that makes me the lucky one Stupidity is a constant trend Murphy and I have become best friends Hooray for dreams gone before they’ve come Hooray for me I’m the lucky one I am the lucky one I am a comedian I guess that makes me the lucky one A sinking ship, holes in my lifeboat Sorry for choking but I’ve got a wishbone stuck in my throat I never thought this could be such fun Hooray for me I’m the lucky one I tried to jump straight through the suck Headfirst but now my f#!*n' head is stuck I’m feeling like a stupid schmuck Lucky for me I don’t believe in luck Thank God I don’t believe in luck Rusted linings on my black clouds It’s raining piss, will somebody tell me what’s that all about? Wish on a Blackstar until it comes Hooray for me I’m the lucky one I am the lucky one I am only human I guess that makes me the lucky one

Beyond the reaches of our galaxy Three figures watch over us all As suns are rising on a distant planet's shores They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating Celestial covering of humankind Perfectly hovering In space and time A world that turns when they're in control Means we're bound to stand on ground that's unshakeable Beyond the reaches of mortality Three figures watch over us all As suns are setting on a distant planet's shores They are watching and waiting, always orchestrating Celestial covering of humankind Perfectly hovering In space and time A world that turns when they're in control Means we're bound to stand on ground that's unshakeable

This flame is coalescing This fire's burning bright I know I’ll get burned but it’s alright (Waiting anxiously) It’s too late to change direction I’m fixed on her in my mind Trade sense for sensation this time (Takes control of me) I can’t wait I want to be with you right now anyway Reckless, so what? I can’t wait to be around you Take me, break me, right now - Why wait til hell to pay? So dumb, so what? I can’t wait to be around you Her skin is laced with poison Her words are laced with lies Affliction is waiting in her eyes (Take them willingly) I can’t control this compulsion Like a moth into the flame Her fiery embrace completes my shame (Don’t let go of me) We bathe in this denial Lay bare the secret place For just a little while Submit to this embrace Pain unfolding Shame beholding Don’t let go of me
8.
I’m pacing inside this empty room Told to wait til my life’s withdrawn Uneasy, I’m waiting here anxiously It’s a waste and I won’t wait another Eon Endless night Long for light My head against this tomb And pushing through I’m pushing through Facedown and pushing through Trapped and isolated Eternity is what a moment seems When I can’t feel anything Erasing my final memories They won’t stop til my whole life’s gone Uneasy, I wait for normality It’s a waste and I won’t wait another Eon When life is gone without a trace And hope is lost in time’s embrace I won’t wait or hesitate; I’m pushing through facedown I won’t wait or hesitate; I’m pushing through… If time’s a song, I won’t wait for its reprise I am done wishing farewells and goodbyes I won’t let this place overshadow my birthright I won’t wait another Eon Impatiently, I’m cutting through the earth in front of me Bone on stone, blood and sweat married Can’t hear the voice that whispers fears when my heart is pounding in my ears All I see in my mind is not what I’ve left behind But all the things I’ve been missing in that lost Eon Trapped and isolated Time is dislocated Eternity is what a moment seems When I am lost inside this dream When I can’t speak and I can’t scream And I can’t feel anything

Under this crushing wait, I’m sinking It never goes away, the thinking Echoes in empty rooms decaying Alone to face the rest of me So long Sentiment It doesn’t matter now What the hell is wrong with me? Why am I torturing myself? Inhaling all these memories Like a breath of fire sent from hell Lead in my gut, not in my spine I feel distracted all the time Well lucky me I’m finally all alone I’ll miss you So long Sentiment It doesn’t matter now Alone to face the rest of me What the hell is wrong with me? Why am I torturing myself? Fixated on these memories Like a prisoner inside a cell With nothing useful to say and no one to listen to it Filling the deep with the pain, I slowly sink into it Consider questionable things to try to get me through it I’ve tried to push it away but I always give into it Long for the taste of the rain that finally helps subdue it And washes this all away Under this crushing wait, I’m sinking It never goes away, the thinking Echoes in empty rooms are saying “Time to erase the rest of me”

Hello again I still try to remember how this all began You can't undo It's okay though because I've got a gift for you Poison in the well - I've got a gift for you A special place in hell - I've got a gift for you the perfect place to dwell - I've got a gift for you and though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do Hello again I still can't remember how this all began One thing left to do So I'm here now and I've got a gift for you Poison in the well - I've got a gift for you A special place in hell - I've got a gift for you The perfect place to dwell - I've got a gift for you And though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do Sickness for the skin - I've got a gift for you A cancer for within - I've got a gift for you An ending to begin - I've got a gift for you And though they're not as nice as the ones you gave to me, I hope that they will do

"Look up at the stars son" my father was saying "Now go wish upon one, then spend your life waiting" The Northern Lights could hear me whispering Hunter Orion are you listening? The rings of Saturn circle endlessly And I'm still waiting I cast my hope upon The Pleiades The Seven Sisters who would come for me They'd fall to earth to grant a child's dream But I'm still waiting Alone in this darkness there's a dream still worth saving I cling to a promise, and I am still waiting
12.
Sit down and shut up I don’t want to hear a word come out of your mouth. Why won’t you listen to me? You’re dreaming - outside life’s great but inside you’re screaming It’s not how you thought it would be? (Aimlessly) Are you hoping for something? (Patiently) Waiting for some sign? (Mindfully) It’s time to jump in or simply get the hell out (Finally) I think you better make up your mind Your perfect world Has been upset And this is the best it’s gonna get C’mon, get up shake it off and work your way beyond the fallout But you still won’t listen to me You’re screaming – Bam! the smack of the truth wakes you from your dreaming So inconveniently (Irony) It sucks that it was all for nothing (Painfully) Your plans were redesigned (Mournfully) It’s a shame you didn’t stand for something (Finally) Now it’s too late to make up your mind Your life’s been overrated Hopelessly complicated You can keep your fame and you can Keep your money Keep your beauty It’s a shame how long you’ve waited Constantly constipated So grab your knees and clench your teeth and Reap your glory Reap your glory
13.
In this lonely place, bathed in silence and thoughts of you I can't see your face but I'm trying to envision you So are you really out there? Are you awake with memories of a boy you haven't met yet who's wished upon the Pleiades?

“Get back up, what are you waiting for this time? “ I’m over playing with this plight But I’m still handcuffed, ball-gagged, facedown to the floor And I’m waiting while I’m hating what I’m waiting for It’s time to take ahold of what belongs to me It’s time to walk away with no apologies Voices in the mirror start quietly And now they’re screaming back at me Don’t back down Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding This is my birthright I’m so sick of feeling like I’m helpless This is over tonight Don’t back up, your ass is to the wall again and Aren’t you sick of wasting so much time? And yes it’s true you’re a fool if you think you were born To be waiting while you’re hating what you’re waiting for Don’t back down Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding This is my birthright I’m so sick of feeling like I’m hopeless This is over tonight How could have I been so earthbound with my heart in the depths and my face in the ground? it’s time to uproot myself and move on How could have I been making sound When my mouth and my lungs had both fused to the ground? it’s time to uproot myself and move on The voices in my head have all begun to sing (the voices in your head have all begun to sing) and they sure as hell hope I am listening (I sure as hell hope you are listening) Don’t back down Holding on until my hands and mind are bleeding This is my birthright I’m so sick of feeling like I’m lifeless This is over tonight
15.
It's not a question of why and if she'll make it It’s more a question of when and how she'll take it Standing out there alone completely naked Another secret’s been kept and left her tainted There's nothing more she can do to make them change it She does the best that she can to rearrange it There's still the question of how she’s grown so tainted A tattered canvas unfurls, watch as they paint it She fought them bravely until defenses caved in Pressing their teeth to her neck until she gave in Now there’s no question this girl is well acquainted With suffering in a world that’s left her tainted Slowly fading and decaying Please ignore what they’re saying She’s at the edge of the world She’s there standing alone She’s the loneliest girl And now She finally feels like she’s coming home She’s just done what she’s been told Her heart is turning to stone Here at the end of this girl This time she finally feels like she’s coming home
16.
I finally get what you’ve been saying now that we’re knee deep side by side The storm clouds are circling above us as we struggle against the tide I feel your grip firm on my shoulder but this fear in my head won’t subside They patiently circle around us as we hold out (against the tide) Oh father why have they forsaken me? You warned me that they would with curses passing down the bloodline, unspoken and misunderstood We’re losing light and strength of will The darkened depths beckoning still And we hold on against the tide Beneath the storm and left to fight alone Remember son, you’re reaping what you’ve sown Under the waves and sinking like a stone I’m sorry son, you’re reaping what you’ve sown We’re slowly losing ground And hope is harder to maintain When all the prayers we’ve prayed feel lost like tears in the rain The waters pulling down The moon’s eclipsing the sun The ending that we knew would come has finally begun It’s finally begun This sorrow weighs down on my shoulders, this fear’s getting harder to hide You’ll leave me alone in this darkness left to hold out against the tide

about

Wish Upon A Blackstar, one of the most anticipated albums of the year, is a masterwork by a master artist. The album's sixteen songs seamlessly blend genres from Electro and Dubstep to Rock and Orchestral with an intricacy and precision seldom heard in today's Electronic music. But it's not just studio wizardry and digital complexity; even the best production has little staying power without strong songcraft to back it up, and this is where Celldweller brings his deeply honed songwriting ability to bear, making Wish Upon A Blackstar an album that will long outlast its contemporaries. Truly epic in scope and execution, Wish Upon A Blackstar will not only leave a lasting mark on the always-changing landscape of Electronic music, but will stand the test of time as a remarkable statement of artistic virtue in a sea of disposable trends.

The Deluxe Edition of Wish Upon A Blackstar features an alternate track order complete with additional production to create a continuous mix with a new outro created by Klayton exclusively for this double-disc set. The second disc contains the instrumental versions of the complete Standard Edition Wish Upon A Blackstar album.
