I woke up today, and I played my guitar,
And I didn't have to turn it down for you.

You're always acting like I should be somebody else,
What if that someone else turns out to not love you?

Feels like freedom is my only lover now.
Feels like loneliness, and loneliness is fine.

I went out today, and I didn't have to call.
Yeah, you didn't have to know where i was at all.

I took the bus, and I walked all over this town,
And I have never felt like I was more alive.

Feels like emptiness when I go out at night.
Feels like loneliness and loneliness feels fine.

Feels like emptiness, but the emptiness is mine.
Feels like loneliness, and loneliness is fine.

Yeah loneliness is fine.
Yeah loneliness is fine.

I saw them at the Whiskey Thurs. night  GREAT!!!
I hear The Fly of U2 and U2 in general. 5.

Ditto. I had heard of V.A.S.T. before, but not really heard anything by them. Liking this and the 2 or 3 others of theirs i've heard on RP. The dilema being they're all tracks off different albums (i think). So, if i'm gona buy 1 of their albums (for starters!), can anyone who knows them better suggest which V.A.S.T. album should i get (first)? thanx

 
Ditto squared.

 

RP plays several songs from NUDE, which was my intro to VAST. I think it's a really good one to start with.


There's something pretty new from the Stereophonics that borrows heavily from this track in places.

Oh, so this is that song ... huh! Thanks RP! {#Cheers} Vast is such a solidly good band! {#Sunny}

Yes, it does! I thought it was something from Remy Zero — kind of reminds me of "Gramarye".
 
I can relate to the sentiment of the lyrics right now... unfortunately.

Es lebe die narzisstische Selbstdarstellung! 10 for this narcistic comment but also 10 for this higly repetitive simplicistic, but nevertheless godlike song!{#Dancingbanana_2}
This sounds like U2 "The Fly". 
Looking out over the age-old tiled rooftop of Vieux Lyon as this plays... VASTness is a cool contrast...
i suppose Loneliness is Fine, but i never really cared for it

Every artist is a cannibal

Every poet is a thief

Both kill their inspiration

And sing about the grief

as i had already given the song a 7. What? they don't know what they would rate this song? Now, that the song played entirely, i should have waited and given it a 9 which i did! Loneliness is Fine is a very well written song with a wonderful quality to it!

Love Vast!

The Fly...

It's no secret that the stars are falling from the sky
It's no secret that our world is in darkness tonight


i'ma luvvah this. will buy immediately
Sounds like somebody needs a hug.
Immediately bought it. Cool track.  It's going on my DriveHome playlist.


Without the words, it sounds like some music used in Snatch... nice. Thanks Bill!
like a mix between the doors and depeche mode...  would fit in well with a late 80's vampire in a city at nigh sound track
Digging this!  About a minute into it I went for the good headphones and it's even better now!  The guitar riff is sweet, and the vocals have a steely edge to them, like his voice is just about to break.

I'm really loving this song !!  VAST is a talented artist, for sure.  Doesn't even need to be compared to anyone else.

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME...!
 

Loneliness is very, very fine. Makes me want to get in the car and drive.

Another great band/musician (in fact, VAST is just one guy) discovered through this station. 
SOUNDS GOOD TO ME...!
Mmmm.... Vast I haven't heard! Kudos, Rebecca!
Luvin VAST
I like it alot too 7
This is, to me, kind of reminiscent of Vibrolux and/or Stabbing Westward. Same driving beat with that high-low octave bass and thought-provoking lyrics. I like it a lot.
Kinda like an updated Doors....
Great song. Great band. Just bought the whole EP via RP's sponsored link.

Thanks for making me discover so much great stuff ! 
ok i wont so like i dont use punctuation or capitalization so its really hard to read my comments lol so like i was saying i dont like muse they only have one good album and blah blah blah

I may have to buy some Vast; I like what I've heard so here on RP.

Basically he doesn't like it I guess.
Calypsus' comment reminds me of a game called "Le cadavre exquis"
" it's a game/creation system invented by the surrealist group:
you write a word, you hide it and somebody else write another word, hide it etc... at the end you have a full sentence" (
wordreference.com)

I think "The Exquisite Corpse" game started off as a drawing on a long sheet of paper. One person would draw a head, fold the paper to hide the segment and send it to the next, who drew the chest, until you had an entire person - then revealed to the players. Poet Andrei Codrescu runs a website literary magazine with the same name. Was there a song in here somewhere? Sorry, lost in digression.
This rocks.

Hello. VAST has set up https://meandyoudonate.com to benefit a number of charities. a portion of every sale is donated. Thanks.

Quite a likable tune.  Some of the most intriguing and amusing comments of any song on RP.

Aw, come on!  Don't give Calypsus a hard time!  His posts are always interesting, if not intelligible.  (But I suspect that is the fault of "Free Translation", or whatever translation software he is using.)

I'll second that. Thanks for the tip - I'll do likewise, as every Vast song I've heard on RP has rung my bells. Another fine band I'd never have heard of without RP, so again many thanks to Becky and Bill for raising my musical consciousness and horizons :o)

sounds like watered down VAST...

I guess he's mellowing with age?  Fair nuff.
This Vast guy needs to cheer up.

(great music tho)

good, good, good.

nice vibe.


MUSE meets The Verve. Which is a good thing, I guess.

Agree it's a great song. But it's really hard to read comments in orange, and I really like reading your comments.

That's a 7 on the first listen.  A little short.  But it made me sit up and take notice, something that the previous Stones song failed to do....

Gracie, eh?  Good morning Bill!  And here I thought your voice fill-ins were all canned....  Bad me.


Sounds good, but I can't find any info on when this album is coming out....


Was outside and thought this was new U2-had to come inside to check.(not that I like U2 that much, but liked this)
Vast gone Moby...
Tedious
suffers a bit from excessive use of title in the refrain, but a decent 5.

Thanks Bill, rock n roll {#Bananajam}
I've had Frog stuck in my head for days since the last play... This new one doesn't seem to stand out as much, but sounds nice so far!

Like the groove and the chorus. not so sure about the singer's voice yet.
