Not that I'm that hard to please
But lately when I hit the street
It's hum-de-dum
(Hum-de-dum-de dum)
When the hard times hit
They hit the biz
The hardest hit make the best of it

Strong dollar stockbroker right to the bottom
Sink down with your boomtown
High water realtors arrive
With numbers over their eyes
Stopwatch hearts

Good God I love the party-starved
Businessmen with stopwatch hearts
They don't beat
(They tick)
They don't beat
(They tick)

Good God I love the party-starved
Businessmen with stopwatch hearts
They don't beat
They don't beat

'Round that corner
Down the street
There's a dive where working girls retreat
From their hum-de-dum
(Hum-de-dum-de-dum)
So tilt that felt hat to the side
Thrift store 3 for .99
Gonna get me one
Gonna get me one
(And get it every night)

FWIW, "Stopwatch Hearts" doesn't show up on iTune's or Amazon's listing of the tracks on "Chimera"...

 
Same with Spotify {#Grumpy}
PSD me ASAP.
Nice voice and song.
First time I listen to this song {#Dancingbanana_2}
Cool cover photo/art.

But it already has Iron and Wine, what more does it need?  Ha, I made myself laugh there. Seriously folks, I find Metal to be more like  noise than music.

 
Metal is supposed to be noisy, that's kind of the whole point. If metal is too much for you to take that's okay, no shame there. However there are many metal bands that make the most deeply musical songs, other music tends to be simple 3-4-5 chord melodies done before a million times, metal often has lots of creativity and the most varied influences of any kind of contemporary music.

Agreed.  Please keep the metal to a minimum or none at all is fine too.  Thank you.

I like this song - however - you have a valid argument. I agree.

Somehow I think those of us who would appreciate metal alongside the other genres here are a definite minority.
 
Count me in.

After this set of breathy chicks wispering may I suggest the following trio to offset the cloud that has crept into my cranium:

Motorhead - Ace of Spades
Judas Priest - Victim of Changes
Iron Maiden - Flight of Icarus

Just a thought.

Shalalala, I agree.  It is shallow.  Sounds like middle school.

Recognized the voice, I thought this might be something from the new Metric album - but it certainly would have been a change in direction for them.

Do it! {#Bananajam}{#Dancingbanana_2}


I just found Chimera down at my local record store for six bucks, and I am ecstatic.  This is my favorite Delerium album by far, even better than Nuages Du Monde.

This track is actually found on the bonus disc (which, sadly, only has two songs, plus some low quality videos).  The remix of After All makes it worth including though.

Try track 7, Serenity, which is a beautiful aria.  Also try track 13, Returning, which brings back Kirsty Thirsk for one more.

I came to say the same thing — I think Emily is singing the back-up line, but not the main vocal.  Whodunnit?

Like Delerium, but this song is a little ridiculous.  I think it's kind of childish.
Hey did Taco get a sex change?

Too perky for me.

Right now we could use some AC DC or something like that as antidote —- although as I write this Fool's Gold is gettin it done.

She is one of Delerium's many guest vocalists.

very poppy, this could be either very new or very old.  I could see this doing well these days on the radio even though it was released a long time ago.
perky - I like that.
Very listenable, nice bass lines. Sexy feel to it.
Perky tune for Delerium. Very nice none the less. =)
