Be Somewhere 04:27
Pictures of the night time taken from my window Pictures of the night time line an empty hall Maybe someone’s searching them for faces Maybe no one looks at them at all Custodian arrives from his lunch with a cup of tea Thirty-five keys, he’s labelled them with great care All the teachers wait for the bell to ring With the same anticipation as little kids The principal is back from her last meeting out of town She Doesn’t look pleased There’s something she’d like to know Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines Do you wanna be somewhere going blind Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time A secretary’s job is an exercise in patience A secretary’s job is a complicated dance She rarely goes down the hall or pictures herself alone She hums her favourite song and quiets a ringing phone Stern but also fair The ship that she runs is tight Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines Do you wanna be somewhere going blind Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time Taken down and put in storage Taken down to be replaced Taken down for summertime repainting Do you wanna be somewhere dealing lines Do you wanna be somewhere going blind Do you wanna be somewhere in the pines Do you wanna be somewhere wasting time

I can’t make up my mind I can’t make up my mind But common sense never reached Out to anyone quietly There are sentences i wanna hear I can’t make out what is real What is real I can’t believe your eyes I can’t believe your eyes You’re bearing down on a name Saying they all sound so contained With a pencil in between your teeth You were squinting at it, pondering Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my, I can’t say that I want More than this, I want everything at once I can’t believe my mind I can’t believe my mind You walk, talk, see and hear And some day disappear With a pistol trained below the knee And they tell you not to grit your teeth I grit my teeth But i’ll stop When you stop Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my God, I can’t talk about it Oh my, I can’t say that I want More than this, I want everything at once But I want More than this, I want everything at once

Prestone 04:51
C’est une fuite de prestone Qui l’aura corrompu Les limites d’un imaginaire Plus ou moins résolu C’est une fuite de prestone Peut-être que t’as déjà vu Goutte à goutte sur l’asphalte Dégoûte, dégoûte Le presto qui explose Le cap a pucké l’plafond Y’en a partout sur les murs La vie est fucking violente Y’est sorti de l’autobus A ouvert le moteur Les lumières sur le dashboard Annonçaient les gicleurs Le presto qui explose T’as raté ta confiture Mettons que ça l’a mal tourné Y’en a partout sur les murs Attention ! tu n’es pas seul Il explose Attention ! tu n’es pas seul Il explose Tu sais très bien ce qui s’passe Sa tête endimanchée D’un peu trop de cigarettes Y’est su’l’ bord de tout pèter Embarré en bossu D’avoir trop souvent baissé les yeux Oh you feel it Le presto qui explose Y’avait pas besoin d’ça Y’en a partout sur les murs Y’a déjà assez d’violence Le presto qui explose Le cap a pucké l’plafond Y’en a partout sur les murs

L'aube 07:58
Through my window Past these words you poured onto the counter Ripples shimmer with the light of a thousand dawns Tonight, when the currents are shadows And the and the path is dark Will you walk beside me to the water’s edge And dive? Out of doors In a hurried world Forgotten keys Collecting light If I keep walking won’t I circle back again If I can talk myself around the point you make Shed my skin One more time Sounds like spring Like bad advice When the creases and the tired eyes begin to show Rung by rung, the fire ladder, out the back window With the sun on your shoulders Not a breath to hold you back Getting small in the distance I missed you, I missed you As we trade in day for night I toss and turn around In the moonlit sky, in a colder light With a quickened heart Beating like a drum You’re running now You’re calling out “I was so scared I was so scared” I really love the morning light But I won’t make another song about it Will come with me tonight Come on over Come on over
