Listen to Anthem by Richard Charles Stevens (Insanity Clause Remix)

Listen to Insanity Clause by Luna C (NRG Remix)

You are the anthem
You are the stars
You are the sum of resuscitated parts
You are more handsome
For every faded scar
Paid a king’s ransom
To decorate a Tsar
Yours are the hands on an elevated heart
Making grand plans
On accelerated path
You are the anthem
Of celebrated star
Waiting on the serenade to start

Dancing in the flames
To enchant them as you pass
Chancing each vein
To supplant with native charm
Naked to the bones
Casting weighted robes aside
Sacred when enthroned
With the grace of ocean tide
Breaking token chains
To a broken state of mind
Open to the changes made
To paint you back to life
Owed to recreative days
Ahead of dead of night
Hopeful in the faith
Of an angel bathed in white

You are the anthem
You are the stars
Yours the expanse of an elevated heart
Yours is the compassion
Fashioned avidly from psalm
Massively impassioned bleeding
Savage seas to calm
Emphatically lavish dreams
Elaborately darned
Painting operatic scene
Mortality apart
You are the anthem
Of celebrated star
Waiting on the serenade to start

Favoured reinvention
When staving off the blight
Unwavering attention
To remaining true to type
Laboured apprehension
As to claiming proven right
Favouring abstention
From resentment humanlike
Nevermore distracted
From the glimpse of all things bright
Evermore adaptive
To the black pitch dead of night
Every fate exacted
Faced collapse within your light
Every shade held captive
Traded anguish for delight

You are the anthem
You are the stars
Yours the expanse of a decorated heart
Paid a king’s ransom
To commemorate a Tsar
Placed the bandstand
On an elevated path
Making grand plans
For regenerative scars
Yours is benefaction
Fashioned avidly from psalm
Emphatically lavish dreams
Elaborately darned
Painting operatic scene
With majesty of heart

You are the anthem
You are the stars
Waving for the serenade to start

Dashing into flames
Every vein ablaze with chance
Fashioning carnations
Into meditative plants
True from seed
Through root
To shoot
In dedicated stance
Soon to be
Renewed
In bloom
Forever sacred heart
Nevermore belated
To perpetuated dance
Evermore elated
Each accentuated glance
You are the anthem
Of venerated star
Forevermore
Your serenade
To charm

  1. “You are the sum of resuscitated parts”
    And the rest 💚
    This is epic, really well performed and gets the head bobbing. Wonderful words/lyrics to remind me of my all. Love this so much 🐭

    1. I adore Luna C’s respectful use of Listen To Your Heart by Roxette (delivered at the correct speed) and the words she sings felt hand made for this piece. Particularly the lyrics

      “I know there’s something in the wake of your smile
      I get a notion from the look in your eyes”

      I like to think she sings “ocean” as opposed to notion but the sentiment juxtaposes beautifully with the words of Anthem.

      As I said on WhattsApp, drink in every beat, wear it like a baroque gown and, should the darkness ever creep in, let it be your anthem. A candle light at lights out to guide you back to day. This arrangement of Anthem is my warm cloak around you while you heal. Every single word reads true. 💚

    2. … and thank you for your words about the performance. I reached deep to bring every ounce of feeling to this one.
