LIFE OF A GHOST (2007)

STUCK IN A HARD PLACE

Stuck in a hard place on a rock
I can't face it
Staring at the party
I'm looking for love
I can't find it

Stuck in a hard place on a rock
In the darkness and drizzle
At the bars, making a pop
But all you suckers will fizzle
You will fizzle

You're missing your memories
You can't remember your name
You've changed your tune
But you've stayed the same

Throw off your dead skin
Like a chrysalis
Metamorphosis
No use resisting this

Your mind is ephemeral
You can't remember the game
You've peaked too soon
But you've stayed the same

Throw off your dead weight
From the precipice
Metamorphosis
No use resisting this

 

ENEMY

We were lovers on the run
Heading for adventure
Ruinous and young

We fled across the broken land
Wild, deserted places
And it went out of hand

Watch your back
Stay with me
Someone here could be an enemy
Watch your back
Don't you see
One of us could be the enemy

We seized a house upon a hill
Damp and tainted ceilings
And broken windowsills

Seagulls hanging from the trees
Black and static water
Red and sticky leaves
 
 
EYES ON FIRE
 
I'll seek you out
Flay you alive
One more word and you won't survive
And I'm not scared
Of your stolen power
I see right through you any hour

I won't soothe your pain
I won't ease your strain
You'll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

I'm taking it slow
Feeding my flame
Shuffling the cards of your game
And just in time
In the right place
Suddenly I will play my ace

I won't soothe your pain
I won't ease your strain
You'll be waiting in vain
I got nothing for you to gain

Eyes on fire
Your spine is ablaze
Felling any foe with my gaze
And just in time
In the right place
Steadily emerging with grace

Ahh, felling any foe with my gaze
Ahh, steadily emerging with grace
Ahh, felling any foe with my gaze
Ahh, steadily emerging with grace
 
 
DISTANT DREAMS
 
I don't know how you dare

Stay calm now
Stay calm

I don't know why you call me
I don't know what you want from me

Ricochet
VoicesI don't know why you fail me
My trouble seems like distant dreams
My troubles seem so far away
Yesterday
It all seems like distant dreams
My troubles seemed so far away

I don't know why you miss me
I don't know what you want from me
Stay calm now
Stay calm

I don't know why you call me
I don't know what you want from me

 

LITTLE BY LITTLE

Stuck in a hard place in the middle, walking on coals
Caught in holes, sorting the souls like the Sphinx and the riddle
Your invisible ripples surround me little by little

He's my only saviour
Living in a stateless zone
Searching for an answer
Everywhere he goes

Widening circles, the surface a living, physical mirror
Connecting fire with the fever, reflecting, I'm a believer
Let the whispers enfold you, pull you nearer and nearer
Little by little

He's my only saviour
Standing in a stateless zone
Waiting for the answer
Frozen to the bone

 

STAINED

Cut me down from here
Fade it out, my time
Strech it out, my face

I stay here
Stained

Cut me down from here
I'm running out of space

 

GHOST

We were lovers on the run
Heading for adventure
Ruinous and young

We fled across the broken land
Wild, deserted places
And it went out of hand

Watch your back
Stay with me
Someone here could be an enemy
Watch your back
Don't you see
One of us could be the enemy

We seized a house upon a hill
Damp and tainted ceilings
And broken windowsills

Seagulls hanging from the trees
Black and static water
Red and sticky leaves
 
 

TALK TO ME

It doesn't matter what you say
'Cause it's written on the wall
There's no need to exaggerate
But I think this time we spoiled it all

We were heading for at spin
Where we were bound to win
We were dynamite
We would scandalize
And outrage and mesmerize

Others stopped where we'd begin
We were bound to win
But eventually
It turned out to be
A fantasy

You say you wanna walk with me
But you're always on the run
You're sure you wanna talk to me?
Cause I say one word and then you're gone

Burn this land
Burn this land

Walking in circles around the core
Tell me what it is
That you fear, what makes you withdraw?

 

EMPTY WALL

Love.
I waited all my life
I sit beside an empty wall

Closing now my eyes
It's written in my face today

Running through your love

HERO ACROSS THE SKY

Stay close to me
Can't you see
I won't get old

Crawl down to me
Can't you see
I won't get old

I can't cut loose
I feel your warmth
I can't get close to you at all
It all depends on the past
A hero across the sky

I feel the pain in every one
I can't get close to you at all

I get stoned
I feel no warmth
I get high and watch the town
It all depends on the past
A hero across the sky

I feel the pain in everyone
I can't get close to you at all

 

WATCH YOU SLEEPING

I wanna watch you sleeping peaceful
Resting your heart and your soul
We should never awake without the other
Lying by our side

I wanna learn from the calm with which you
Aim at your dreams and your goals
And I'm sure your stories always will unfold

I try to get you up
But you go down
And you are not okay

I wanna carry you
But you won't get up
It's really killing me
You know it's killing me

I wanna join you sleeping peaceful
Feeling the sun in our room
What a plenty of rays and beaming light
Surely, it does me good

I wanna trust the pulse
In which decay is followed by bloom
And I'm sure any flaw will turn out beautifu
 
 
 
 EQUILIBRIUM


Early morning, dreary horizon
Aching hands are pulling a millstone
Wailing from the cart
Moaning from a shattered heart

He's burned down many a bridge
And he's scared of walking in the dark
It hurts when the rain falls on his skin

Oh he is worn out from marching
And he's forgotten for what he's searching
Yet he keeps up the stride
God knows that he won't arrive

SWEEP OF DAYS (2004)

HISTORY

History is just beginning
It’s like leaves creating a canopy
And, woven in the tapestry, my testimony
A ceremony of souls, a symphony of sounds of sounds and forms
A cacophony – I’ll keep that energy

I’ll keep that energy flowing through the whole range of me
So you can focus on the rage in me
And my obituary?
Well, I’m re-writing it every second, every century
Well, I’m re-writing it

History is just beginning

 

AS I MOVED ON

Come and dance, come

I was all alone, going for a ride
Traveling solo, off my guard
I had to follow this calling from the wild
Into the shadows
Into the shadows of my heart

I needed all my strength to
Stand up to your agenda
I said it, I said it again
I never wanna become
Stuck in your machine
I said it, I said it again

Come and dance, come

And as I moved on, thought I'd blow my mind
But as it turned out, I was wrong
I met my sorrow, saw her in the eyes
She tried my courage
She tried my courage, but left me stronger

(You better stand up straight and you gotta be strong
You gotta fight for your right and reclaim your own song)

I needed all my strength to
Stand up to your agenda
I said it, I said it again
I never wanna become
Stuck in your machine
I said it, I said it again

Come and dance, come
 
 
END OF THE DAY (SILENCE)

Silence,
Stretching out, between, us.
I dream of a presence,
With essence,
And absence of doubt.

Come closer.
Come and stay with me, now,
Help me reconcile.
Come and stay a while.

And I will find a home,
Because we love till the end,
We love till the end,
And I will find a home, (find a home)
Because we love till the end,
We love till the end of the day,
Of the day, of the day.
Of the day.

Of the day, of the day.
Of the day, 
Of the day.

Distant,
Shifty-eyed, and restless.
I dream of a presence,
With essence,
And absence of doubt.

Come closer.
Come and stay, with me, now,
Help me reconcile.
Come and stay a while.

And I will find a home,
Because we love till the end,
We love till the end,
And I will find a home, (find a home)
Because we love till the end,
We love till the end of the day,
Of the day, of the day.
Of the day, 
Of the day.

Of the day, of the day.
Of the day, 
Of the day.
 
 
 
RICOCHET

Yesterday my troubles seemed so far away
And now there's nothing left to do but watch the choices slip away
And all the voices ricochet – our conversation disappears
In recrimination – voices ricochet – they're just
Words in the distance, like birds inside my head, and
The water runs red – you're a
Stone on the windscreen, you shatter the world ahead

Voices ricochet – you can picture a big ‘thirteen', try to extinguish me
Relinquish me from the damage
It's only mortality…
It's the echoes of carnage
Now the view is all tarnished – the rest is just wreckage
The sky's a varnish, furnished with thoughts of flight
And the pain still visible in light and sound and sight

Dismiss the sky – voices ricochet

Grip is precarious
There's various ways the path of truth can bury us
Too many variables, too much chit-chat
Too much of this and that
Too much zig-zag, yin yang, yak yak

I'm all right, Jack, pull up the plank, I'm aboard
Fall on your sword – a humming repetitive
Feels like a sedative, nerves are the last to decay
Don't worry, it'll fade away

Voices ricochet – our conversation disappears
In recrimination – voices ricochet – they're just
Words in the distance, like birds inside my head

And all the manacles that bind, the pinnacles you climb
To the background of a cynical ‘who' and ‘what' and ‘why'
And ‘why not?' ‘Scuse me while I dismiss the sky

Voices ricochet – dismiss the sky

 

EMBERS

A western sky is glowing
Calling off the day
Fading rays of live sunsets
Caressing my feet on my way

A shade in the horizon
Quivers in the haze
Whisper near right by my ear
And these are the words that he said:

If you love your woman up to the maximum
Tell her fi hold on, hold on strong

Orange eyes of embers
Gleaming in the night
Guard us until break of dawn
Blessing the ground where we stay

The eastern sky is glowing now
In reddish shades of grey
With promises of life and love
And I wanna cherish the day

If you love your woman up to the maximum
Tell her fi hold on, hold on strong


BONFIRES

I was given wine
We're feeling okay
And quite all right
You wash my tears away
And make me wanna stay
And bonfires lit up the shores

Walk far far away
To go beside you
Is where I want to be
Walk far far away
To laugh, to love

Days of roses and wine
Drifting astray
With your hand in mine
You stroke my fears away
And make me wanna stay
And bonfires lit up the shores

Walk far far away
To go beside you
Is where I want to be
Walk far far away
To laugh, to love

Walk far far away
Where to go and hide?
We're going to the sea
Walk far far away
To laugh, to love

And this is how it went;
I am here to stay
Roaring with the wind
There's life within'

This is what I give
A circle is complete
Another circle spins
There's life within'
Within'
 
 

 THE YELLOW MAN

フロム極東、日の出ずる国、YOU KNOW?
ヤバイ日本人CRAZY JAPANESE
ヘイ MY FRIEND ぶっ飛んでくれ!

STONE STONE STONE

町が重震地、始終、エルアイから踏む字が泣いたら3メートル級の
の美、夜の道、満月と忍者、己のみの信者、ブルッて泣いてた、
って死んだような目をしたジャパン、茶碗と箸持って特攻、
飛行、ひとりで発射、不甲斐ない差異、唱いだし合う、隣の宇宙、
フッ、固まる、宇宙の噂じゃねえぜ、民は重装備、旅先で足袋履き、
匙加減塩味、レプレゼント地球でいってみよう!

血で殻洗われた、風に攫われた、結ばれた、晴れた、この世は平行線、
空と名を割れた事を問う、暴れ、黄昏れる、誰かな?古風のイェローメン。

ひとりひとりが強者になればいいって事。

 

SHINE

I tend to be
Stuck in minor key
Then pale monotony
Holds me down

But luckily
You are so dear to me
In your charity
I go home

I'm so sorry
This melancholy
Holds me down

But luckily
You are so dear to me
In your charity
I go home
 
 
SAVE THIS TOWN

Come around to this fine town
Where freedom makes the world go round
And where dreams are found
And carried out

Even in the afternoon
You can go there fishing for the moon
And the fairy lights
Glow like fireflies

Come on save it
Come on save it
Every single one
Come on save it
Come on save this town

Growing from diversity
Out of true originality
It's the place to be
And that's why

I fear the need to standardise
And I fear the guys with normal eyes
It's a precious child
Come give it a try

And we try
Every single one
Come on save it
Come on save this town

I know that we can't save this town alone
So this is why I say
Come on and raise your voice
And spread these words around:

Come on save it
Come on save it
Every single one
Come on save it
Come on save this town
 
 

SWEEP

The floor you walk on is smooth. There is no ground there.
Magic begins with blood. Outside, there are trees,
With concrete under their roots. But I have passed the tombs of kings,
Regaled them with pacing, checked bins for food and wrappings.
I have scoured the seas for miles, cloaked my face with ash.
My fingertips opening, accepting my time.

The dark cylinders of half-smoked cigarettes
For me, I'm your sorrow
Calling in your dreams
For me, I'm your shadow
Howling in the streets

Water chimes in the space between rocks,
Speakers discharge and laughter is in the air,
Glass divides us, 
empty bottles 
mark the steady sweep of day

Tomorrow, I will walk the streets
And steel myself for the familiar. Your eyes
Will not settle, a hunger. You'd be happier in your grave.
When we meet, share stories, you stretch me. I see,
I see a semi-circle of teeth.

The dark cylinders of half-smoked cigarettes
For me, I'm your sorrow
Calling in your dreams
For me, I'm your shadow
Howling in the streets
 
 
MY DAY

As we’re nearer to the end;
Here we are again
Seems like we’re always working
At this time of year

We have come a long way, my friend
How many hours we have spent
Seems like we’re always working
At this time

This is my day
And I wanted you to know
This is my day
And I’m gonna be okay

Through the steady sweep of days
Keeping focus as the currents race
Seems like we’re always working
At this time

This is my day
And I wanted you to know
This is my day
And I’m gonna be okay

WISEGUY

Surrender, wise guy.
One day, I will rise and shine in the mornin' light.

(Four, five, eight)
I tremble, wise guy.
One day, I will rise and shine in the mornin' light.

Remember, wise guy;
One day, I will rise and shine in the mornin' light.

Surrender, wise guy.
One day, I will rise and shine in the mornin' light.

I tremble, wise guy.
One day, I will rise and shine in the mornin' light.

 

GRAND

We fling ourselves fearlessly,
With lights upon our faces 
into insecurity and unity

We dream ourselves fearlessly,
With laughter in our eyes,
But no one has a steady look at last

You go in the morning, the morn before light
Warm is the bed and my back where you’d lie

Slowly my awakening, my breathing in haze
And so I know I do belong here,
I will sing to the day
 
 
WITCH OF TROUBLE

It's like Cream but not the Wu so you don't know what to do
She's like a witch of trouble in electric blue
And if you don't watch out she'll get to you
Piercing through emotional armor like when you do voodoo
She sits on her throne of lost souls
My thoughts roam the coast of insanity in schoals
I brag and boast but I will never ever get to her, no hope
Deep in my mind's the cure for the illness waiting in the shadows

I used to be afraid, living on a razor blade
Came toe to toe with nemesis it left my mind unscathed
All I wanted was to bathe in the rays of eternity
All of the sudden wasn't one thing bothering me
That was when she materialized line after line
The past became the high time
I remember pushing forward breaking out of confines
But I never knew the truth in her sighs
After her theft one is left with piles of ash
She got me good, my life was in tatters and rags
Too many intentions to mention thrashed
Suffocated in those plastic bags at last yeahh

Meanwhile fools run high and low she smiles cruelly hosts
Imaginary shows the voice of solitude bellows
She's not my type why I want her every night no one knows
I unfocus loose sight of the material forget the spiritual
My mind is in a black hole no way out some would say I chose
Consciously obviously not
I didn't deliberately get caught in her plots and what not
Reefr Kid and Kuri closin' up

 

JABBER

I tried to run, I heard them going away,
I know they will wait for me.

But for eyes to shine and blood to merge:
The raising of a buried land, claims a marked hand.


I saw a marked man among their crowd,
Will he wait for me?

So for eyes to shine and blood to merge:
The raising of a buried land claims a marked hand.

 

HOLLYWOOD

Earliest days, in calm and misty dawn
I can reach so far above my head with my height.
And I feel fit for fight, 
With my pace I break out the light, 
And the cool wind strengthens me to walk on by.

But, so far beyond my pace,
I watch you run over and make me feel foreign inside.
And don't ever call again
I want seven undone days.
A revolt of my force inside.

Thoughtful, early autumn-days, a chestnut in my palm
as I open my lover's eyes to see if they still shine.
Though I feel fit for fight,
and my pace can break out the light,
I need more to make me feel all right.

 


BLACK S

My Kandora, you wander solemnly.
I linger,
I owe – what?
A hundred tides!

I'll wait, I know that 
I'm native here.

My Kandora, your blood runs faster.
I linger
I owe – what?

My Kandora, the finest pellicle,
My loning.
I owe what?
A hundred tides! 

I'll stay , I know that I'm native here.
I linger,
I owe what?

I wonder why.
 
 

HIDE

Lower the day-tune, while
they carry candles through the night,
For thousands of miles
Lower the day-tune,
Why?
They hide into the dawn

Then they took off to find her tree,
Drove for miles the highway down
Lifting the dark to call the light,
But though they tried, nothing went right.

Lower the day-tune, while
They drove to seek wonders,
For thousands of miles
Lower the day-tune,
Why?
They hide into the dawn

(and I'd stay in the doorway
to keep an eye behind them,
exited to dive into their dawn,
they hide into the dawn)

You've got to come to hear the sounds,
Directed by the bright, they grow
And hundreds of fountain-hearts will sound,
Though they have no reason to

 

EVO

So long for now,
I will take what you said and did,
and fold it all around my heart
So calm for now, 
But I feel unrest working in my spine
(One blow in the nape of my neck, 
A hot kiss)

So long for now, 
I know you must be leaving,
But I hope to see you safe again
I’ll try to follow my curve,
Wherever it might lead

So long for now,
I will keep it all, and fold around my heart
So deep the earth breathes,
Through winter’s cold
She must fold
Around her heart.
