In this southern platform Which has its days I wake up and surrender To an image of waves And I ain't dead At least not yet But I'm not with you Sunday morning I love me without you Lovin' you Joan, my pain is true True's part of the untrue I live for the moment In a seismical town In my hic et nunc I Dream you away And how are you Morning dew? Did you evaporate? Plague, Earthquake the Sack and the Bourbons And Jesuits too, you know As I walk on depowered new cement And by wind an obscene bridge is bent I think of you of you my love Even of this I get sick of

Haven't seen you around dear lady These last days I'm thinking of What could have occurred to you baby What's the cause of this oblivion Because I sense it in your mind before than in your words Knowing that in women silence is the cruellest among weapons I learnt their world And looking for exceptions A different way Of watering love I must admit I hate you baby I can't perform the part of the weak one 'cause in love I'm just the antonym Of an accountant or a suede glove So please rip all the letters that I wrote you when I was in love you know stupidity is a precious goddamn thing and something that you can't truly afford consult a lawyer or a notary when you shoot your next dove which is flying above in sky And if my feelings are still fainting I will find another way 'cause I really can't find meaning In the patience of a saint 'cause I am an atheist And despise pain Do what you do I met you with your new boy baby It's a kind of energumeno Kinda different from the previous The one you dressed with a black cassock And I see you proudly wear a purple-brown eye And I think I understand that morbid suffering smile You didn't even greet me How can it be? So if your feelings are still cheating you will find another way there is still a silver lining In the patience of a saint And if your feelings are still breathing then it means you're good enough there is still a silver lining In the torture of the soul And you are so faithful you know how to face your pain

Bobby Walser 02:49
Hey Bob Tons of blue Like two beggars with a feather which run through all their nights to be right till some Colosseum but if weather does look clement makes no fear You and I spin around don't see any bound or knob Can one be such good and gone Can we stay 'till the day's done Chased but never found As nobody hears our sound A cold grey Yesterday Did I ever Tell you We're no more than preys? There ain't light In the fight Of others' pride There ain't light in the woods Of someone's cold delights So we spin around To reach some ground We're slobs Can one be such warm and lost Can some soul tell me where's a phone To call my homeground As the world here makes no sound We measure yards of best regards Even in shards Under guards' sight And it's so coarse and surely it will get even worse if we just give up walking but now I feel a bit tired I hope you don't mind if I lay myself on the mound

And when you hide your love It just juts out from the carpet It may become a problem As your granny could stumble on it What do you want from your love? What do you want to be free of? Your words won't say What they obey So c'mon Be quiet in desperation's row My lady of Darkness Oh useless act To smile to rats As they run out From your favourite carpet Or bugs perhaps Right from your hat You brown sweet hair Do you really want to smell so bad That nobody could wish to get near? No other way if you can't be clear to yourself I got some advice for you One) send a letter to your left leg and offer her A ticket to your soul La la la la la la La la la la la la La la la la LA LA Oh guess you'd be in love again see a cockroach without head but you know it would smile as you say hello to it Oh there's a led deep in your head And I wonder who just set It in action as all I want is a gentle embrace With grace No other way if you can't be kind to yourself A second advice for you So put some sweet-smelling yellow flowers in your hair And beware they are insectless Ratless Breathless (and goodbye)

Vera, do you remember years ago by chance that day we left the road I turned the engine off Headstones Were scattered all around the ground A sudden sense of being found Mixed with a feel of loss Willows wept And a raven cawed Mortuary shots Coughed at us Were we already dying? Well I Didn't know what took me I began to touch your breast You smiled I thought that you would stop me Until you put your tongue On mine Once again In the graveyard Before your gran long gone In the graveyard We'd been there both before In the graveyard Where we surely will be back again It doesn't sound that bad Vera I wonder which side are you now The coughing or the loving one I'll know how to miss you Willows smile And the raven laughs Mortuary shots Cough at me As I look for your name So Well I Don't know what it takes me I begin to feel excited You smiled I thought that you would stop me Until you put your hands On my Living signal In the graveyard Where all the dead hold hands In the graveyard Once discomfort is crossed In the graveyard I need to be back there again Hope we'll still be friends

Something better Than these blankets Something matters Beyond fetters Would please you show What still I don't know Where we went wrong Who's the one I love And what's the way To show See I run away Just for one day You disappear So full of fear Then you turn strong And I'm so weak That I'm wrong And it's so strange to See you run away Just for one day I disappear So full of fear Then I turn strong And you're so weak That you're wrong Yes maybe we don't fit we don't cope We don't match Don't succeed But it seems I love you more and more There is no way No other day No hope to cling No ring to tie No sense to invoke Nobody can accept at all To understand that we That we know That we need That we feel That we love Only the Impossible.

Choose a way today oh boy A way not to be let growing In this age of plenty you've Got a right to be left drowning Choose the hammer to be hit Choose a toilet to be shit Choose the drug that you'll be loving Yes love is real A bad title of a song That's too bad too and too easy to Learn and sing Nothing that you'd feel to do Would be allowed to self-following As the river's flowing through All these affluents of tears falling Choose a matter to be in A profession to act in A dark globe without humanity Just the one you learnt as if it was good but never was let me teach you now history as a slaughterhouse Can you really cope with this? Can you love with cowardice? When harm reaches you directly Would you dare to claim someone's help And I know you'll do So my friend Take a look at your hands Tell use from misuse Give a shine to your shoes Don't pretend To support or defend This evil trend You know it's a dead end And oh, Silver Surfer knows Choose a hero to believe A messiah to save you To appoint your helplessness Is it really what Is it really what you want? And do you still want? Can we want ourselves, after all? Can you really cope with this? Can you love with cowardice? When harm reaches you directly Would you dare to claim someone's help And I know you'll do So my friend Take a look at your hands Tell use from misuse Give a shine to your shoes Don't pretend To support or defend This evil trend You know it's a dead end And oh, Silver Surfer knows (Galactus, you're right)

Hippodrome 03:02
Ego It's bouncing on its tiptoes Performing in a smooth cold trot That you call virtue Virgo Your whip is silent and strong I'm almost happy to act wrong To be able to taste And I like to hide In my mind The truth What else could I do To avoid that your interest for me Turns blue? If you want me neighing, jumping, laying, runaway Whip me, scold me, drug me, pull on the reins Be proud you're leaving deep signs on my brain Please now I'd like to have a love-mark on my face too 'Cause no horse is more worthy of trust in this hippodrome Hey Rose What the hell do you know about this lonely crazy horse despising your rules? Before You even give a single lash And cockiness all ends in trash Be ready to clash You know I'm unable To cradle The truth I warn you you'd be a fool To sweeten the pill To soften the thrill For good If you want to fight give up the farce and Know your mind Neighing, jumping, laying, only for love-time I've got some bruises but they got a proper time And I have got some bruises but they have a proper source Tonight I'm gonna blow up your funereal hippodrome

I know there are things I should do right now Or at least I fear it from the day I was born Walking on a sunny hazy day It's warm the sun blinds I feel careless but I'm way far from careless anyway I'm not saying that everything is nice but everything shines and everything really seems to have no price I know there are things I should do right now Wait a minute Sam, I get shards from ground Ok Sam, you're not the army, Not your mummy Just an appetizing wonderwoman so what's wrong? So why do you need to tell me now what to think what to say what to do and fucking how I know there are things you should do right now You don't know what to do with your being around I am so annoyed at how you misuse your time 'cause I am here and fine and need no straight line And so Find another dupe Or maybe a whole troupe To dictate rules And so Forget the horrid song Of those who say you're wrong 'cause you're alive I know there are things you should do right now You don't know what to do with your being around I am so annoyed at how you misuse your time 'cause I am here and fine and need no straight line And so Find another dupe Or maybe a whole troupe To dictate rules And so Forget the horrid song Of those who say you're wrong 'cause you're alive My Thelma and Louise Stop breaking my balls, please My Rosa Luxembourg Please do not disturb

Fish in a bowl It's quite normal In our home Plant in a pot I have got On my desk As I lay On my chair Exorcizing some despair For there's no Way to go And listening songs From other lost souls Crying alone 'Cause they can't convince no one Including themselves To break free And feeding my songs With things I'll never do Wouldn't it be better To write a letter If it's not this way Can you imagine any other way If it's not today Can you imagine any other day?
11.
So, this is not Christmas It's the day of your birthday Which I'll never know If I forgot And you'll never know If these wishes Are true And if I am still Neurotic Or just maybe a bit Robotic 'cause now it's my facebook which takes care of you Happy birthday to you (I like it)

Beautiful 05:38
After all these years It's become so clear What you are to me We've been finding words We've been throwing swords For a fear so deep We're a chance To be beautiful (why do we call it fear) a chance To be beautiful ('cause I think it's love) We don't need to fight We don't need to hide What is real indeed We've been paying false debts We've been missing steps We've been losing strength We're a chance To be beautiful (never mind the style) A chance To be beautiful (please surrender) A chance To be beautiful (it only takes to accept) A chance To be beautiful (never mind their plans) Say it to me!
