about

The Scientist Tel Aviv, Israel

Not a musician at all, The Scientist is in fact .. a scientist. Although mostly interested in the genomic attributes of endangered animals, The Scientist could not battle the surge of music flowing through her fingers and disturbing the peace and quiet of her laboratory. Therefore, she released it into the airwaves in hopes that someday it will find its way back to her. ... more

Track Name: Addicted
I am nobody's dream
It's just me and my heroes
I collide with the sound
Of truth passing by
And thrillers that die in me again.

The light in me's pale
Against the sun that I'm watching
Somebody please turn
The switch on in me
I might grow to be out of demand.

But I'm rising, I am rising in you
I can tell by your glowing in darkness when I'm with you
Might I be lifting you too?
You're addicted to me, and that's why I am.

I'm not humble nor worthy
Or telling the truth
I rely on somebody's faith to hold on
It has to be strong for me
I'll be

Rising, I am rising in you
And god knows what you meant to find that has kept you so true
Might you be lifting me too?
I'm addicted to you and that's why I am.

I don't know how you secretly dug me out of the ground
Endured all the pain and ugliness you found
While I'm cured you stay around
To keep me addicted to you
It's all that I am.
Track Name: Birthday in New York
Birthday in New York
It's not as easy as you'd think
New York in June is like a mix
Of vanity and drinks
It's got me hoping
For a bright and shiny day
But brings the cold and heavy rain
To drive my mind away

With changes in the sky
Comes pressure in my eyes
Is it raining still? I really can't see
New York in June is dangerous
Just like the man who's far away
But still is inside of me
Both undress me with their eyes
But shut their mouths so they could be free

Lately my eyes have rested
On a road that is half shown
Without breaks or intermissions
I am pushed along the stones
The wind reveals
The nudity of my mistakes
And pets the gentle heavy line
Inside of which I ache

With changes in the sky
Comes pressure in my eyes
Is it raining still? I really can't see
New York in June is dangerous
Just like the man who's far away
But still is inside of me
Both undress me with their eyes
But shut their mouths so they could be free

How long will I ache 'till I bleed?

Birthday in New York
It's not as easy as you'd think
New York in June is like a mix
Of vanity and drinks
It's got me hoping
For a bright and shiny day
But brings the cold and heavy rain
To drive my mind away
Track Name: A song for Tayman
I was standing in line for self satisfaction
Gave all my illusions to somebody else
My arms are resting somewhere in between
A porn magazine and a custom made girl who cleans after herself.

So who are you to believe in me?
Because the rain clouds are coming and they won't bring me down.

I was standing in line for self medication
Left all my confessions in chemical burns
My arms are resting somewhere in between
Some nicotine and a custom made girl who cleans after herself.

So who are you to believe in me?
Because the rains clouds are coming and they won't bring me down.

My arms are resting somewhere in between
some nicotine and a custom made girl who cleans after herself.
Track Name: I was born with an over-sized heart
I was born with an over-sized heart
Pathologically prone to be parted
I couldn't see
Who would take my breath from me?
No, I couldn't find
Who would give his heart for mine?

I had walked down the narrowest roads
My over-sized heart kept bruising on the walls
I was laughed at and banned
No hand shall touch my hand
But I could understand
So my heart grew even larger then.

I had died of an over-sized heart
As my lover sat by my side
I had loved him so
That my heart could no more grow
No room was left then inside
So with my heart I died.
Track Name: Battleships
Brother I see battleships carving in the water
Do you know a child that does not know the harm they mean?
Were we ever innocent of the news they bring?

I woke up this morning in the clothes of a soldier
Brother can you see me through all the rims?
I swear, I cannot see a thing.

You brush your armor to shine brightly in the light
And I'll draw the backbone of the strategy of the fight
Or we might forget where we're going

Sister I see sparks rising, glowing in your eyes
Is it beauty or the youth that you have grown into?
Or are those just the burning skies?

We march into the battle zone with no surprise
Have we always been so indifferently in-tuned?
Come join me in watching our demise

You brush your armor to shine brightly in the light
And I'll draw the backbone of the strategy of the fight
Or we might forget where we're going
Or we might forget where we're going

Or we might forget where we're going.
Track Name: Help is on the way
Something is lost in my way
And it's not out of reason
I've brought my guns out to play
Fresh out of season
Bearing my core for display
Without treasure or fortune
The rivers of joy that I chase
May never be broken

If you are what you say that you are, then I better be ready
If you are what you say that you are, then I carry you with me

Something is lost in my way
I don't suppose you'd know
I turn to you just to say
That I still walk alone
Like a bird at its rise to the sun
I will tire and burn
As I viciously crash on the ground
My faith will return

If you are what you say that you are
Then I must have been playful
If I am what you say that I am
Ooooo..

I believe in things of steel not in motion
It is strength that has brought me here, not devotion
I'm aimed at a solid kill, not emotion
You've scorched your way into the shield, by absorption

Help is on the way
Help is on the way
Help is on the way
Track Name: Don't forget me
So on we go
Weaving our minds into transient goals
Deep down below
There are no anchors connecting us home
They tell you: “you won’t be anything until you rise up high”
So numb your defenses and charge towards the burning sky

When I was lost
I inhaled darkness and exhaled its cost
So I buried my loss
My heart in my hands and my head aside, tossed
They tell you: “you won’t get anywhere until you lose your way”
So lose all your breaks and get ready to climb
On the steepest of mountains, the highest of ridges
And reach up so blindly high
That you could say

Oooo.. I touched stars
Oooo.. I touched stars
And soon you’ll be shouting out: “please don’t forget me”

So on we row
Never concerned by the river below
Leave no time to grow
We carry nothing to slow down our course
They tell you: “you won’t be anything until you rise up high”
So numb your defenses and I’ll crush you just to say
Oooo.. I touched stars
Oooo.. I touched stars
And soon you’ll be shouting out: “please don’t forget me”

Oooo.. I touched stars
And soon I’ll be shouting out: “please don’t forget me”
