Track Name: Close
Here for something we like
The simplest one
Here to pay not to fight
Willing to play
Here it’s all we can
Afford today

For all that is missing
In our life
For all that we’re missing
In the play
For all that we know
For all that we say

The hard path of the blues
We drink in juice
The break/breaking old work
Of coming close

If the soil crumbles
Under your feet
If the blade pierces
Into your side
All you can do’s
Entertain yourself

So please let me know
What time you come
The things you love
The drugs you take
To like my own
Good old days

‘cause it’s no wonder
that our love is like a blunder
with a condom
that will keep us free
from love
Track Name: Britney
All trains go
On wet rails
Of liquid shit
And fiery piss
Let them go away
from all our joyful souls
Let them go
What you’ve ben taught
Is all completely wrong
So you know

Many grow
with simple things
Others flow
on sewer stream
and do you know
which side are you
of this world
Let them go
Your culture is
Brainwashing and rock’n’roll
Oh no…

In a moment of grace
I peered into
your heart
and there
I found
With dismay
a line from
Britney Spears
That even she
forgot

I peeked into your
dreams
And I saw
deep dark
So
please would you
Replace your subhuman need
With mine?
A brain lavage…
Track Name: Late blues
I ain’t gonna show you ‘cause
You really don’t care
And I won’t use you
‘cause you is all there

I ain’t gonna know you ‘cause
You really can’t care
And I won’t follow you
‘cause you are dead

I ain’t gonna blues you ‘cause
I don’t really care
And you won’t follow me
‘till the house of the dead
Track Name: Time
Safe and sound
Away from the eye
Make inroads
Into a new terrain

Break new grounds
Devouring all you can
Your first time
Disappears every day
Let it go
Lei it go

Calling you
Idiot bleeding sounds
Which you loved
When you were still young

Baby you lost your time
Baby you lost your
Baby you lost your time
Track Name: Cherries
I asked Mary
Me to carry
To a prairie
She was merry

I asked Mary
Me to bury
It was scary
But she made it

In the cold earthy soil
Nothing else of me can spoil
Thank you Mary
No more caring

I asked Mary
Me to bury
Me and mary
Once so happy

God bless Mary
Fast she helped me
A little hurry
She had to marry

In the cold earthy soil
Nothing else of me can spoil
Thank you Mary
Happy wedding

Proud Mary
Feed babies
With the flavour

These cherries
Are growing
With all my love
Forget me
I’m cold
Track Name: Back to the old house
I would rather not go
Back to the old house
I would rather not go
Back to the old house
There's too many
Bad memories
Too many memories
There...
There...
There...
When you cycled by
Here began all my dreams
The saddest thing I've ever seen
And you never knew
How much I really liked you
Because I never even told you
Oh, and I meant to
Are you still there ?
Or...have you moved away ?
Or have you moved away ?
Oh...
I would love to go
Back to the old house
But I never will
I never will...
I never will...
I never will..
Track Name: Mirrors
Mirrors
For the billions
Dangling in
Front of their egoes
Multiplying
their
Indifference
For the
Billions
Wandering on
Earth without
Any look at
what is moved
from above
all their heads

If you try to distract these people from dreaming
they tell you they don’t hurt no-one
if you try to disrupt the spell of ego
they tell you that you’re in it too
but you don’t want to know

Mirrors
Getting nearer
Put before
Twisted noses
At the center of the world
So you know
That the people
Are real people
And they have
Taken the lead
On their noses
And their bleed

If you try to distract these people from dreaming
they tell you they don’t hurt no-one
if you try to disrupt the spell of ego
they tell you that you’re in it too
but you don’t want to know
Track Name: Starglow
We blowed on starglow
On our way to Babylon
Time can’t come undone
But still cassettes play poptones

Nothing in the future
Nothing in the past
That will call
I’ll sell off my name
To some old shop

Baby take a bow
I’m smiling as I bend my knees
Well, just because I’m tall
I’m leaning off to taste your lips

No way they can grab us
No way to respond to these names
we ain’t got no dumb sin
we aint’t got no race

Who will they call
And who will they break balls to?

Who will they blame
And who will they send fines to?
‘till we are into
Our being two
Won’t come back again

Singing the last strophe
Doesn’t even seem so worth
But listen to the last phrase
The one in which we’re lost in space

Oceans will submerge them
Volcanoes will spit fire on their heads
And who gives a damn
We are lost in space..

Who will they stop
When they know he’s at the top?

Who will they praise
To get something in return?
‘till we are into
Our being two
Won’t come back again
Track Name: Reason
Get in line
Waiting for love
Grow your soul
To get meatballs
I'm buying gold
That you can't spend
I'll sell you hope
That you can’t mend

It’s allright
To me
You’re always
Believing

I hear your prayers
They’re cheap and old
You don’t need much
And I love you

It’s allright
To me
You always believe
Same old shit

With little
You’ve a lot of fun
The devil always beats
His drum

It’s allright
To me
You make a reason out of everything

I will kill you
Don’t be afraid
Even your corpse
Is part of the trade

It’s allright
To me
You’re always believing

Same old shit
Track Name: The chain
Assume to fight
For a cause
That no one knows

Guess you can't
Explain why
In your own words

The anger is extreme
But your hands don't respond to any logic
So
You feel alone

Assume a life
Whose logic
Can't be understood

Maybe you don't believe
Any man can
Do you good

Now you're ready to be a soldier
Another name for
Cannon fodder

Man, don't look around
Observe the bound

Perhaps you may find
That you are the one you're fighting
And that you're obeying
To fear
To lose your brain

Man, don't look around
Observe the bound

Perhaps you may find
That you are the one you're fighting
And that you're obeying
To fear
To lose your chain
Track Name: A shot of you and I
In quite half an hour
It will be dark
Above our heads
So I will take a shot of you and I
Of you and I

Hold you in my arms
The world is empty
Around us
In this hidden room of the hotel
When the light goes out
When the light goes out
When the light goes out
When the light goes out
And begins to rain

If I’m there
Can’t still open my eyes
On the shot of you and I
In an unknown land
In an unknown land
In an unknown land
In an unknown land
In an unknown land

If there was a door
I never found the key of you
I feel I lived alone
I feel I loved alone
There was no door
In an unknown heart
In an unknown heart
In an unknown heart
In an unknown heart

If I’m there
Can’t still open my eyes
On the shot of you and I
Of an unknown heart
Track Name: Surrender
Tonight
Lend me your white
Give me a surprise
Speak with the moonlight in your eyes
Liftin’ the curtain of my dreams

Don’t cry
For grey’s in the sky
For loves gone by
For all the wrong times in your mind
For all the pains that dig like a drill

Go ride
You don’t need no guide
Freedom’s so wide
Try not to slide
Crocodile lies
Waits at the bottom of your pit

You know I’ve tried to be broken in every way
But now I’ve grown
Now it’s over
That war it’s over
At least for me

Stay tight
Knight of the light
You know the fight
Must be fought
Hour after hour
Darkness is the best excuse of fear

Because now
Everything is
Just a pretext
To remain exactly
In the same place
Where we now are

You know I’ve tried to break you in every way
But now I surrendered
Now it’s over
That war it’s over
I’ve no excuse
Track Name: The weight
Black is the night for those who need to pray
Grievous the day for the ones who obey

The remedy has never been to be alone
The remedy has never been singing a song

Centuries screaming inside your head
From the first day you wished you were dead

And the remedy has never been to cry aloud
And the remedy has never been to join the crowd

Resigned to wait
You'll carry the weight

And do not think you can share the pain
'cause everyone wants to rot in his way

Until a black hole will take us all
Being more merciful than this whole world

Resigned to your fate
You'll carry the weight
Track Name: Christmas
This is my first decent Christmas
A whole lifetime of compromises
Between the earth and the mind is
Over since you left this country
Goodbye

This year I won't give silly presents
This year I won't greet hateful people
This year I won't sing idiot songs
This year I won't make you happy
With my unhappiness

I had become known to myself
It was your job
And now unknown just calls me back
Through open roads

I'll drink to your heart full of revenge
I'll drink to your good simulations
I'll drink to your hated family
I'll drink to your dull compulsions
And thank you for leaving

I thank the world there are large spaces
To swallow you
Take possession of a corner
Dictate the code

Goodbye to our desperate travels
Goodbye to our poetics of imprisonment
Goodbye to our generalized hatred
Goodbye to our fear of humans
I'll except you
For a while

So now this shitty time of Christmas
Comes back to be what it is
At last I feel a whole lot better
To say it clear
