The Heart Is A Burning Thing

from Wolf of Vienna by carol blaze



“In a world of contrived, co-opted, super-model, musical acts, created for kids who think music is something that comes on a computer, bought from Best Buy, its easy to forget the art and honesty of musicians creating their craft in a vacuum…”

A.T. Vish has been a musician in Pittsburgh since 1992. The former drummer of Pittsburgh's dreampop darlings, Lowsunday (Projekt Records) and psychedelic monsters, Thickhead Grin, A.T. Vish, set out to create music filtered through his own sensibilities and limitations. The result is the psychedelic, desert, shoegaze, sci-fi rock of Carol Blaze.

“Nick Cave, Muse, Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, Peter Gabriel, The Cult, The Drown, U2, Vangelis…”

From his Pittsburgh based recording studio, A.T. Vish is the soul creator, performer, and producer of the music. He was also the drummer in national productions of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and Without You, both starring Anthony Rapp (Rent, etc.). Carol Blaze has been heard on the TV shows, Disappeared, Deals from the Darkside, True Life, Pros vs Joes, Remodeled, Last Call with Carson Daly, Baby’s First Day, American Weed, and others. Carol Blaze has performed in such diverse places as Pittsburgh, Tokyo, Sibiu, Romania, Beijing, China, and Prague, Czech Republic.

The Heart Is A Burning Thing

the heart is a burning thing
can tear your soul apart
maybe it will make you sing
you never know from the start

the heart is a burning thing
can tear your soul apart
maybe it will make you sing
you never know from the start

your heart can be a quiet thing
i never know the truth
maybe you just keep inside
the feelings taking root

ya here it comes

some day it will come
some day it will come
a feeling so remorseful
it will leave you feeling numb

maybe it will lift you up
maybe push you over the edge

the heart is a burning thing
breakin through the skin
can lift you up
can tear you down
and back again

my heart is a burning thing
burning through the night
loves not for cowards
you gotta put up a fight
