Original Theatrical Art Rock. A clever mix of pop, rock and alternative which delivers an assault of psychotic mood swings, time changes, and perversely intriguing lyrics.

Biography

Toronto indie artist Wilton Said... likes to write lyrical topics which explore the places which others may find a little dark. This can range from the homicidal school shootings in "No Other Way" off of 1999's release"World up my Ass", the follow me like sheep fashion rant of "The Gap", off of 2001's release "Broken", through to the public self confession of "The Telling" off of 2004's "The Butterfly Plague". His last release titled "The View" (2006) takes a look at topics that we can all relate to but don't necessarily want to. The struggle to find an identity so we may fit in as heard in "Pretty". The lust for control and domination to soothe our own weaknesses in "A Family Affair". The struggles with addictions and deceit brought to light in "Merry go Round". "The Empty Sky" with it's theme of coming to terms with hopeless situations.

Musically, WILTON SAID...'s style can be referenced back to his experiences of classic art rock artists such as Kate Bush, Queen, Peter Gabriel, Supertramp, and (older) Genesis. Other inspired contributions range from A Perfect Circle with their release "13 Steps", David Bowies 2002 release "Heathen" and Radiohead's "O.K. Computer". All have added inspiration to the rich eclectic texture of his music and to his strong baritone vocals.
While Wilton's past studio and live experiences has had an assortment of musicians backing him up, his current and most stable line up consists of the textural stylings of Guitarist Chris Reid, the groove and grounded Bass playing of Frank Heisler, and the subtle yet intricate Drumming of Richard Rizzo.

WILTON SAID..., who holds a Degree in Musical Composition from York University, has been performing in the G.T.A. promoting his various CD's through live shows and interviews. For more information regarding future shows and events, please visit the website at http://www.wiltonsaid.com

Lyrics

All for You

Written By: Wilton Said...

All For You (part 1)

I used to be sad, now I’m happy and gay.
I’ve blown those grey skies away.
Oh I’m just a happy lad, now my heart is oh so glad
Since I met you.

Now everyday is bright, when I catch you in my sights.
You blow those gray skies away.
I’ll give you everything you ask, just to get you in the sack.
All for you.

I’ll buy you furs and fancy rings and shiny diamonds.
A stereo, a T.V., and a car.
A silky necklace, made up of pearls.
Just to spend the night with you.

(Instrumental)

I'll buy you furs.... night with you.

Though it may seem, that I’m desperate enough.
Don’t take my feelings for granted.
You know I’m just a happy lad, I'll give you everything I have,
All for you.

The View

Written By: Wilton Said...

Standing high above the world
I can see the panic below me.
Sparkling rays of morning sunlight
turn to rays of fire light.
The life which sprawls out before me
is gathering a will.
But that doesn't matter anymore
my choice before me
Holds me still.

And so I've got the wind before me
and the heat at my back
now tearing at my flesh,
advancing each baby step.
My quickest way to heaven
God, my only choice?
Falling back into the fire
or falling forward
to say
Goodbye.

Heavy Motion

Written By: Wilton Said...

Standing still
A wave over my eyes.
Salty sting, Salty taste
Trying to hide my desires.
My defeat, my defection
Betray my desires.
Heaving heart
Pumping blood
To my rise.

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Takes me in
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates

Staring up
The sky seems so unclear.
What's the limit, what's the damage
That I pay?
Yesterday, last week
I don't remember.
Who is she?
Pumping blood
To my rise.

Heavy Motion...Medicates

scream for truth which I possess.
Held so tightly between my ribs.
You crack them open, peer inside.
And see...
....Yourself.

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Takes me in
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me sane
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Medicates

Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me saved
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Keeps me sane
Heavy Motion
Emotion
Makes me rise
Heavy Motion
Emotion
No more lies

Free...
Free...
Free...
Free...

Merry Go Round

Written By: Wilton Said...

Rabid thoughts going through my head
Sickening smile across my face.
I don't want to be here, but I'm here
I fear.
I like the smell, I like the sense,
I like the touch, but not the stench
of my weakness to be true
to you.

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round

Voices saying there's nothing wrong,
a little touch of fantasy
A little touch of reality
brings me home.
The blow that hits me hard
is what I want to feel.
Indulge me please, Indulge me
till I feel.

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round

One step over the line
and I'm down on you.
Saying this is the last time
it's always the last time.

I'm on the Merry-Go-Round.
