VIOLENT YELLOW

 

Everything is neutral now,

it came and went to end somehow

Baby skin all swollen up

The me´s I´ve had are taking spins yeah

 

Sick of it now, are you sick of it now

that the die is cast and you´ve won at last?

Closer somehow, are we closer somehow,

now we´re torn and frayed, neutered and spayed?

 

Oh my, how come?

You´ve wanted this since you were innocent and young

and now the time has come

but you´re still on the run

And please, oh please

don´t let this be another part of my disease

It´s tough to find that ease, when you´re stuck ...

in violent yellow

 

Left-hand paths, self-righteous words

can never tell what I´ve just heard

So comfort me with your hybrid arms,

just stay a bit till dawn attacks yea

 

Sick of it now, are you sick of it now

that the die is cast and you´ve won at last?

Closer somehow, are we closer somehow,

now we´re torn and frayed, neutered and spayed?

 

Oh my, how come?

You´ve wanted this since you were innocent and young

and now the time has come but you´re still on the run

And please, oh please,

don´t let this be another part of my disease

It´s tough to find that ease, when you´re stuck, oh man you´re stuck ...

And yet maybe I could have pulled myself out of this one way track

but something always lacks, when you´re stuck ...

in violent yellow

ZAMPANO


All of the kids we once caught in the rye became bankers and lawyers in the end

All of them have been ransomed as the firstfruits of our own race,

have been ransomed for god and the lamb

 

I´ve walked mysterious paths, oh so mysterious paths,

but the worst things have not yet been said,

I said, the worst things have not yet been said ...

 

So come on

Dissect me

Perform your tricks on me

Take from me all you need,

Lady of Shalott

cuz the mirrors cracked

It´ll always feel like a wound too deep to heal

So come on

Dissect me,

Lady of Shalott,

cuz the mirrors cracked


All of the kids we once caught in the rye became bankers and lawyers in the end

All of them have been ransomed as the firstfruits of our own race,

have been ransomed for god and the lamb

 

And so nothing´s precise,

nothing´s ever precise

and if they´re right, then your beauty brings demise

and if they´re right, then your beauty brings demise

 

So come on

Dissect me

Perform your tricks on me

Take from me all you need,

Lady Ferocia,

I´m never gonna cringe or smile again

outside of your window pane

I´ll never ever try in vain,

Lady Ferocia

 

I´m never gonna cringe again ...

 

 

BALLAD ABOUT THE CRANES

 

It took me years to find you

Too long for a tumbling man to bear

Ma chère, the future lies behind you

The playgrounds and good old laissez-faires

 

The day shall come when we will rise above them

to fly in shadows of October mists

And whom we left forever on the ground

will gaze upon us and wonder what they missed

 

The beauty here is deadly

I read it somewhere in a lousy script

Sometimes we lean forward too madly

I wish you could have been there when I slipped

 

The day shall come when we will rise above them

to fly in shadows of October mists

And whom we left forever on the ground

will gaze upon us and regret what they did

 

It´s strange how you act kinda funny

as if once all things took a turn

Come, find me drenched in milk and honey

and we´ll send out sparks till we burn



SLUMBER


Down there below the trumpets blow

To endless misery

It seems like I´m stuck in a swamp I know

Since I have grown

In endless misery, where everything is tired and fine

Yea it´s fine
Away from neon shine

This destiny is mine

Yea it´s mine

It always has been mine and it always will be

 

Don´t
Drag

Me away

From the warmest place of all

The place of childhood songs

How I despise them

I

Defy

Deny

I don´t owe them anything

See, the prophets come to sing

Of endless misery ...

 

The thief is caught

The crowd applauds

To endless misery

It sneeks up like a tiger from behind a tree,

Waving its leaves

To joy and tragedy

We´re all in this together, can´t you see?

Can´t you see?

The ghost I haunt is me

There´s no need to be shy

Don´t be shy

See, your wounds are mine

See, your wounds are ...

 

Mine

And I

Deny

I don´t owe them anything

See, the bells begin to ring

How I despise them

Don´t

Drag

Me Away

From the warmest place of all

The place of childhood songs

In endless misery ...

 

See

Can´t you see?

The ghost I haunt is me

There´s no need to be shy

Don´t be shy

See, your wounds are mine

See, your wounds are mine



DOT ME


Suck it in and spit it out

We´re Polaroid-framed heirs of doubt

Let´s lose our minds, let bubbles last

Take one last breath till times collpase

 

Don´t let them in

Don´t let them in

Their glassy eyes pierce through my skin

Don´t let them in

Don´t let them in

I promise, I will try to sustain sanity

Good old sanity ...

 

Please help me wash this odd smell off

It´s just one of those whooping coughs

I´ll come unarmed, I´ll slowly wrap

The tracks of your love on my back

 

We talk in riddles all the time,

create landscapes of love and chime

Let´s make things unclear from the start

We kiss so softly, hit so hard

 

It´s not enough, it´s not enough

The guideline´s never been so tough

It´s not enough, it´s not enough

to turn my head ...

Now what´s that all about?

 

One day I will be under nothing´s spell ...

 

 

DANIEL AND THE LIONS


Sweetest friend, oh sweetest friend, have you heard the news?
Heaven sends its symbols of disease
I was there, yea I was there when they cut them loose,
They´re gonna break the walls,
They´ll come in hordes

Oh and when the lions dance
At the king´s last command
We´ll be turning, turning, turning, turning black
Oh and when the locusts spread
Over our sacred lands
We´ll be turning, turning, turning, turning black

Paste a bit, paste another bit, create something new
This is not an answer nor the truth
Move along, let´s move along to the final clue
We´re gonna break the vow
We´ll come in halves

Oh and when the lions dance
At the king´s last command
We´ll be turning, turning, turning, turning black
Oh and when the locusts spread
Over our sacred lands
We´ll be turning, turning, turning, turning black

Oh you and I are bound
From triumph to perdition
Oh you and I are bound
from mastery to submission

Ab ovo ad mala
Ab ovo ad mala



BATTY STREET LODGER


Oh, it´s all fine

No, it´s a curse

But it´s always been mine

Since the birth of the universe

Stroke these tired hands

Oh, what a rush to be diving in your eyes

The last cave of gravity ...

 

Go on

You´re fun

You´re so fun

I wish you would have been there

All the times

When I was young

When I really should have been consequent

And slowly choosing the right options

Taking smaller amounts

Avoiding open fires

Now the recipe´s lost

The recipe starved us

WIth smaller amounts

So nothing would slip from our reach

 

Oh, it´s all fine

No, it´s a curse

But it´s always been mine

Since the birth of the universe

Stroke these weary hands

Beware of the history they bear

Oh, all the kidneys they sucker-punched!

 

I´m just a silly boy

A silly boy with giant demands

Just a silly boy

A silly boy with silly boy plans

 

So storm the palais!

Route the brigades!

Tell ´em I won´t back down ...


until they drop that stump blade on me!



DARK WAS THE NIGHT

 

Dark was the night when we peeled ourselves down to the bone

And what we found, when it all turned out wrong

Was the root of our sorrows

 

Dark was the night when we screamed till our lungs were all dry

We sowed the wind and reaped the whirl-wind

Like there was no tomorrow

 

I, me and mine

The bitter crops and the acrd wine

We, us and ours

To the sweet, tasteless and the sour

 

Dark was the night when we pressed pillows unto our mouths

We pushed so hard that our eyeballs came out

And our cheeks were all hollow

 

Dark was the night when we had followed the sun all day long

We made out to our favourite song

Like there was no tomorrow

 

I´ve had it all

The rise of dusk is the singer´s fall

On my again

To the Euphrates and Tigris land

 

Dark was the night when we pressed pillows unto our mouths

We pushed so hard that our eyeballs came out

And our cheeks were all hollow

 

Dark was the night when we screamed till our lungs were all dry

We sowed the wind and reaped the whirl-wind

Like there was no tomorrow

Like there was no tomorrow

 

HEDONIC TREADMILL


Black out

The ghouls are prevailing

Scratch, shout

Tear the hair from your head

 

I was so wrong

My eyes are misleading

Yea, I was so wrong

I just cannot blink enough

 

Rise, kids, and quarter your parents

Quick, kids, are you listening to me?

Cuz it´s so cold, our future seemed golden

Yea, it´s so cold, our future seemed golden

once

 

And as the old folks would say

The quest never ends

There´s an eye for an eye and a hug for a dropkick

And a why is a why

And it never leaves us alone, pretty one

What´s that worth after all?

 

And now it seems like I´m able

to portray everything I´ve desired

But I´m spellbound

The words are passing through me

Yea, I´m spellbound

I´m only the messenger

 

 

So rise, kids, and quarter your parents

Quick, kids, are you listening to me?

Cuz it´s so cold, our future seemed golden

Yea, it´s so cold, are you listening, are you listening

word for word?

 

And in the end we will be

where the bugs and spiders hide all forlorn

in the gaps between us

And we´ll all sing along

to a song we´ve never learned, pretty one

Was it worth that at all?

 

You don´t look anxious no more

More like one of those sad clowns

on cheesy pictures on Bourgeois walls

Your eyes are open now,

red by the insight

into how it was

and how it´s going to be

 

 

SORE MOON


I must be mad to reach out

for something so pure and divine

I mean, I´ve tried

I have broken my spine

But the names I gave you all escaped my mind

My twisted mind

They escaped my mind

They escaped my mind

 

But you

You still pass by

I can hear you

Your steps echo in from outside

I´m not that kind

I only own what I find

I´ve seen the panets and the sun collide

But I can´t bear your site

I can´t bear your site



NIHILISTIC ITCHING

 

crrrghh grrmmppf woahh

BROOMSTICK JESUS (2013)

 

If you want me to rise,

I´d surely stretch my limits for you

I will

I will

Bear our own paradise,

where reason´s just the reverse of truth

I will

I will

Freeze in the very state of the moment you desire me most

So don´t

So don´t

Promise me times of gold, when all I want is crawl back into

the sadness between your thighs

 

Now there´s nothing here

All is said and yet

There´s a thousand words

stuck in my throat

And I guess, you´re right

I´m silly again

Like I always act

when things break ...

 

Kiss me, I´m borderline

I could wake for 20 hours a day

I could

I could

Chase all of you fears away

and crush all of your enemies´ bones

If you only asked me

 

But brave ideas demand brave people

and we´re not cut from that cloth

And so lately, what we once shared

has just become the next cut

 

And still

I can never change

what´s been said today

Knew, you couldn´t cope

but I

said it anyway

Knew, I shouldn´t have

but it was what I felt

Just the truth

about how I cannot breathe

when I´m close to you

And how you complete me ...

but I don´t you

 

Boy, shut up and cut the drama

Oh boy

Oh poor boy

 

Boy, now won´t you cut the drama

Oh boy

Oh poor boy

 

Boy, shut up and cut the drama

Oh boy

Oh poor, poor boy
