Letras / Lyrics


Album:  There's nothing left to give up

1. Eisoptrophobia

Fire will not be able to burn me up
because I’ve been training in the mountains.
You thought the war was over but it is not
and now we are, all of us, still sober.

Keep your clothes on if you want to be alive,
leave your soul here it’s not useful anymore.
Spelling your name I found a reason to be glad,
getting away from here we’ll be getting back home.

Wisdom is not important where we go,
I heard a long howl this morning.
The mirror said to me “you’re the only one”,
my raincoat hides me in the corner.

Keep your clothes on if you want to be alive,
leave your soul here it’s not useful anymore.
Spelling your name I found a reason to be glad,
getting away from here we’ll be getting back home.


2. Farewell

There will be nothing to care about
when all this is over.

I will wash my face
'til my features change.

All I needed was you
but now I'm fonder of 
my red shoes than of you.

I will recreate you
to always remember you by,
for the very last time.

Music that comes from everywhere
sets my pace.
I can't help but smile
when I look back.

All I need is me.
I don't feel bad though from the mirror
my eyes accuse me.

3. Kennedy & Loota

Come together
you, all the free world.
There are bananas, more than enough.
Let’s clap together
for such a good job.
You can feel all her pain with every brushstroke.

This monkey drew
a man in the moon
in a flashy space suit.
Watch your step
before the final jump.
You could die of faith in the truth.

Louder and louder
we can hear the noise.
The army is ready for the war.
Now you realize
you cannot grab a gun.
It’s too late to start asking why.

This monkey drew
a man in the moon
in a flashy space suit.
Watch your step
before the final jump.
You could die of faith in the truth.

4. Cellulitis

5. Show

I don’t wear shoes but I feel no pain,
I usually smile when you say “all is ok”.
After having been through great experiences,
I walk down the street, I look at the ground.

Thousands of eyes are looking at me,
they ask me “where have you been”.

and I show… show… aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

Recently my guitar wakes me up
and we go to the main door, the both of us.
I take a gun and she takes another one,
what do you want from me? I’m not a human being!

and I show… show… aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

I show them my hands.
Please, accept my apologies.
Through the window I can see the orange sky.
I take a run for it and I jump.

and I show… show… aaaaaaaahhhhhh!!!

6. Plastic Plastic

How many times did you bump into a gnome and say
“sorry, I'm sorry my sir”?

Once again,
here he is,
shaking hands,
our guest.

And at how many lies have you smiled and continued
nodding and nodding, my friend?

Once again,
here he is,
shaking hands,
our guest.

A pile of money burning up.
The fires reflection in your eyes.
We hold our hands to the bonfire.
Now all makes sense more or less.

Raise your arms and pray to your god.
There’s nothing left to give up.

Once again,
here he is,
shaking hands,
our guest.

We burst out laughing and shout at the clouds.
There’s nothing left to give up.
Once again,
here he is,
shaking hands,
our guest.

7. Landscape from the train

It’s time
to say goodbye.
Mr. Butcher died,
stabbed by his knife.
The sun,
is hitting my face,
accusing me but I don’t
regret what I’ve done.

That was…
That was the end (x4)

The train,
carries me away
from the space, I won’t
come back anymore.

It’s hot
hotter and hotter in here.
I'm getting sick,
I can hardly breathe.

That was…
That was the end (x4)

It’s said there’s no longer a good sort
but I’ll keep trying to find you.
For the first time I can understand,
it was much easier than I thought.
