BACKGROUND

Psychopomp is a Tea Party classic and for many people one of the best in the bands catalouge.

The title “Psychopomp” refers to a spiritual guide who leads you to the place of the dead and comes from the Greek words for psyche and conductor. The term was created by C.G. Jung.

SPECIAL FACTS:

LYRICS

You wanted this
So sad to see
The sweet decay
Of ecstacy

And you want it all

A frozen sun
Will guide you there
As shadows hide
The deep despair

I’ll give you something more
And you’ll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away

So sleep tonight
In idle dreams
The pain will drown
Your silent screams

And you want it all

I’ll give you something more
And you’ll fade away
One last kiss before
You fade away
Lives you once adored
Will fade away
Lies you can’t ignore
You soon repay
As you fade away

VIDEO

The idea was to use a live video shot for “Intimate & Interactive” of the Canadian music channel MuchMusic. Since the band wasn’t happy with all of the live  material, the song was re-shot after the show. So in the final video you can see a mix of the original live recording and the post-shot.
