ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
01-Lies of a Minah Bird

I want to be like Henry Spencer at the in-laws’ table
In front of Mr X dissecting Sunday lunch and Mother’s
Crying, crying

I want to be like Gordon Cole, not give a shit, just kiss her
As of today it wouldn’t matter, I’d be just another
Pigman, pigman

Just another pigman, pigman

I want to be dead Annie Blackburn in the Castle with Good
Dale Cooper chewing the gum that is going to come back in style
One day
Laura

Rihanna, Nirvana, Kitana, Wynona,
Cicada, Manana, Iguana, Pirahna

I want to be like Sheryl Lee and be a tragic princess
I click my fingers and talk backwards in the zig zag fortress
Laura, Laura

I want to be Rebecca Burnett when she finds the black lodge
I’ll disappear into the sky while Papa eats another
Doughnut

Rihanna, Nirvana, Kitana, Wynona,
Cicada, Manana, Iguana, Pirahna

I want to be like Gordon Cole, not give a shit, just kiss her
As of today it wouldn’t matter, I’d be just another
Pigman, pigman

I want to be Rebecca Burnett when she finds the black lodge
I’ll disappear into the sky while Papa eats another
Doughnut

I want to be Bad Cooper driving through the desert without
A single care for anything or anyone but
Himself or maybe Laura

Rihanna, Nirvana, Kitana, Wynona,
Cicada , Manana, Iguana, Pirahna

I want to be the silent minah bird

*********************************************************

02-Mia of the Amazon

Saw you in the desert with your handmade bow
Ran into the rain with your Viking clothes
From the misty mountains came a violent howl
Out came thirty giants who threw in the towel
In your Viking clothes, in your Viking clothes

I just want to bind your feet and watch you roast until the sun comes down
Then we’ll find some maple sticks and amethysts to place upon my crown
I just want to bind your feet and watch you roast until the sun comes down

Queen of the Amazon, she is the only one
To live freely the Amazon, without a lonely heart
Queen of the Amazon, she is the only one
To live freely the Amazon, without a lonely heart

Saw you in the desert with your handmade bow
Ran into the rain with your Viking clothes
In your Viking clothes, in your Viking clothes

Queen of the Amazon, she is the only one
To live freely the Amazon, without a lonely heart
Queen of the Amazon, she is the only one
To live freely the Amazon, without a lonely heart

You pound your drums
In the Amazon there is only one
To the brown and green sun
In the Amazon there is only one

Only one to rip your heart out at sunrise
One to climb the highest peaks and cry out her lungs
One to jump off treetops like a bird
One to ride the horses of the dawn

*********************************************************

03-Figure of Speech

It’s in the cold
Fear something’s killing it
So alive
Rip inside that body that’s overtired
God saw his copy was so alive
We’re something coloured in solar light

We’re sailing through fire somewhere far
You’re sinking in ice
Sent to break you

We're seconds through the Bang
That’s so bright
That’s alright
Cause we made it to the bright love
That’s alright

It’s in the cold
Fear something’s killing it
So alive
Read that someone’s body needs solar light
God saw his copy was so alive

We’re sailing through fire somewhere far
You’re sinking in ice
Sent to break you

We're seconds through the Bang
That’s so bright
That’s alright
Cause we made it to the bright love
That’s alright

We’re figures of speech now
Figures of speech now
Figures of speech now
Figures of speech now
Figures of speech now

*********************************************************

04-Willow and the Queen of Goblins

Willow and the wasps take turns at getting cross.
On tiptoes willow creeps up to Plume as she sleeps.

Only two courageous newts will tame the goblins, taste the goblins
As they fall from their appalling nest of goblins, oh.

Get up girl, time to play being creatures of the bay.
I’m a star - fish and you- can be a crab on my shoe.

Only two courageous newts will tame the goblins, taste the goblins
As they fall from their appalling nest of goblins, multicoloured.
Only few will get to know the Queen of Goblins, Queen of Goblins
As they fall from their appalling nest of goblins, oh.

Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Willow’s got it super rolling. Let go of your sad controlling.
Green ghosts in the orange sand – tell you how to land.

This year you have grown so fast I’m overthrown.
It’s C for courageous! Hold her hand before she rages.

Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Deadeye Delusional
Did I confuse you all?
Willow’s got it super rolling. Let go of your sad controlling.
Green goblins hold her hand

*********************************************************

05-Carcass and the Cola Can

On Coruscant I see your light
reaching out to bite you.
From a crumb of when we met
Gently explodes your violent

And sore young life of war on the floor

There’s no way to block out your striking face
Cause there’s no one like you
There’s no way to bargain with Cupid and Psyche tales
When cola deepens inside you

Peel back the silver tongue as someone bleeds behind you.
Each drop of blood that falls is reaching out to find you.

There’s no way to park in your air space
Cause there’s no one like you
There’s no key inside to the forest of fire roaring
When the cola’s deep inside you.

In so many ways
The can of blood magnifies you.
At the first burp of mirth
The red can fails to defile you.

And deep inside a forest of fire roars
Cause there’s no one like you
I feel your glance emblaze my plastic walls
Cause there’s no one like you
I’m the fingers wrapped around your brown burger
Cause there’s no one like you
If your face won’t stop to radio blast (I’m fried)
Cause (there’s) no one like you (Rose)
Cause It’s me your Psyche, really frightened
Cause there’s no one like you

*********************************************************

06-Atoms For Sale

You reply to people on your own
In a wonderful new shoebox below

I wish I knew the secret cold escape
To somewhere different, somewhere new for a change

Get up and vote

Don’t waste any time with notes
Slipped under the door
Don’t make any promises you can’t keep
I’ll do anything for you

And we know it while we push and shove
Your body’s in a category far above

And it’s perfect when you right your wrongs
And you patch the holes while getting along

Repent for being who you’re not
Instead of fleeing the package you got

On the day the twinkling eyes above
Stared at their own future with love

We’re atoms for sale

Don’t waste any time with ghosts
Slipped under the door
Don’t make any promises you can’t keep
I’ll do anything for you

Don’t waste any time on boys
Knocking on your door
Don’t make any promises you can’t keep
Pull yourself off the floor

No need to be shy my dove
We’re all the same atoms for sale
Don’t break the promises you have made
To yourself essentially

*********************************************************

07-Lines

Have you ever felt like you're an insect part of everything forever?
In the magic subway I am everyone and everyone is never

You will be mine and I will be yours
You will be mine and I will be yours

Ran into a lake and drank the blood of everything forever
Jumped out of a plane and ate the skies of everything forever

You will be mine and I will be yours
You will be mine and I will be yours
And I will be mine
And I will be mine

We'll all get close
We all get close, and gape inside
We all get close, like suicide
We all get close, but not this time
We all get close

It's getting faster. Hope there's no one coming through
The tunnel. We're so far
Driving blindfolded down the wrong lane in the dark
I smile when it's raining and watch the colours snap their teeth and growl
We both get close then both bail out

I will be mine and
You will yours and I will be mine – we both get close
You will yours and I will be mine – we both get close
You will yours and I will be mine – we both get close

We're getting closer to something somewhere new
And soon we find it all makes sense, as our companies turn to dust
And it all makes sense as our rolling coffins turn to rust
You leave this Crust. We all get crushed

You will be mine and I will be yours
You will be mine and I will be yours
You will be mine and I will be yours
You will be mine and I will be yours

Crushed - As old as crime
We're broken lines – we're forks in time
We're broken lines – we're forks in time
We're broken lines – we're forks in time
We're broken lines

*********************************************************

08-Papapapapyro

Reincarnate as a mountain bird of prey
While your ex-mind and -corpse go out to play
Kept all my saddest thoughts to myself
Standing on eagle red egg shells that taste of my dead mother

a-It’s like falling in love again
With a person who’s already slain

Reincarnate not for long as someone else,
Who you used to be but with much better health

b-I was cloned before you were put in charge, in charge
I was cloned before you were made and placed here in charge

Dropping the flames on ‘em (x8)

Your name is a net
It slices me to threads
Don’t say you’ll play nice
When rolling the dice
You cloned me again
What did I do wrong? Do wrong?

I don’t know what you did wrong
It was more the growing-old song
Least we get to be upset
Like the golden times within the net, yeah

It was fun the time that it lasted
Then the water we drank was just plastic
Least we got to dream a great lot
About flying to Mars in impossible cars

Least we got to dream a great lot
About flying to Mars in impossible cars
Least we got to dream a great lot
About flying to Mars in impossible cars

Your blankets are wet
Your breath is so cold
The day is the night
You barely can stand

*********************************************************

09-All Potential Targets

We’re killing people in the offices and markets
Controlling what you think. We’re all potential targets.
Careful what you drink, “it’s safer from the plastic
Bottles,” they all cheer. Pharmaceutical fantastic
Ringing in our ears: “pay for this for years.”

Can you really afford to let the sunshine in?
Can you really afford to let the sowers walk?

Pay for this for years: the tortoise-shell solution.
The chains are not for real, your debts are an illusion.
Be careful what you think, your thoughts belong to others.
Be careful what you think, it’s already Big Brother.

For what it’s worth to keep your head above water
On your day of birth, you were sold off to the Order.
The Order.

He who holds the fork depends on who’s the sower.
Multi-national firms couldn’t bring us any lower.
Late freedom of speech was lost against the Terror.
The length of our leash, just call it trial and error.

And I read it was a crime just to bother, habit of the dead.
Looking most sublime running in the gutter floats the Order.

Can you really afford to let the sunshine in?
Can you really afford to let the sowers walk?
Can you really afford to let the sunshine in?
Can you really afford to let the sowers walk?

I was hooked to the cryo-farms.
I was hooked to the cryo-farms.

Can you really afford to let the sunshine in?
Can you really afford to let the sowers walk?

We are dead bodies for beetles
Lamps carved in stone
We are dead bodies, crows,
Just meta-ghosts

We are dead bodies cloned
We are lamps carved in stone
We are dead bodies, crows.

*********************************************************

010-Dragon Claws

There is a place that I want to face and I want to fall inside the wall
There is a face that I want to replace with incandescence inside the wall

Like in a dream
Find the source
Like in a dream
Find the source

You found the text that I left for flames right beside the road, inside the wall
You’re pretty close to being like the rest, recite the dogmas of the ghost

Like in a dream
Find the source
Like in a dream
Find the source
Like in a dream
Find the source
Like in a dream
Find the source

*********************************************************

011-Wisps and Worms

And the only real explanation
To your face is a crown

And the only obvious answer
To your ways is not down

Please stay on hold
I’m not the only sun
Brighter than Calista
Breaking up your sacred code

On the outskirts of Island town
While in love with prince’s charm

Be not fooled by wisp lanterns
That will only bring harm.

Please stay on hold
I’m not the only sun
Brighter than Calista
Breaking up your sacred code

*********************************************************

012-Out of the Mould

When we murdered those kids in the forest near the factories
It was not about orders, it was mainly from acknowledging
The rhetorical gifts of our leaders and their policies,
That reduce us to bits. Take a minute to defragment me.

Have you carved this yourself or was it programmed in your breakfast pill?
Did you write that last night or was it whispered to you in the wind?
Were your holidays yours or the ones of a collective dream?
I remember the day when I thought that we were plasticine

Out of the cot you were not as loved as me
Out of the vault settle for nothing free
There was a man who reminded us all just how to breathe
Without feeling inclined to apologise for natural needs

You knew what it was to be loved so you posted it on to social media.
You knew what had to be done so you crawled up to the doorless chamber
You wore your fingers to the bone so you blamed it on the Crown and State
There wasn’t much to be done, after all of us had asked for keys

When the exits are jammed and the air vents are just printed sheets
If you want to get out, pick an option
In the laboratory, play along, be a sponge
Gain their trust and one day you’ll be free.
Pull the plug, take a plunge, walk on ashes
Red as children’s meat, red as children’s meat.

In the ages of will there was someone who looked just like me
One of us shared, I have the feeling I was not complete
The other one said
In the wilderness there’s all I need
On the side of the road
Did we not agree to disagree?

*********************************************************

013-Tightrope Sirens

Have you noticed- there’s no fence or wall
Round your garden – learning to grow tall
Soon the world will – pay for Mr Greed’s
Spreading vision – of mental atrophy

Disobedience – is a distant dream
Like a carcass – further up a stream
Like green bottles- hanging on a string
We’re on tightrope – bees without a sting


On tightrope, on tightrope, we’re just bees without a sting
On tightrope, we’re on tightrope, hanging on a string without a sting
On tightrope, we’re on tightrope, we’re distant dreams up a stream
On tightrope, we’re bottles, we’re barely hanging on a string

Sirène bouddha, Sirène bouddha,
Sirène bouddha, Sirène bouddha

*********************************************************

014-Event

In the event of your fateful death
Would you even mind if I wasn't charged for theft
As the freedom crumbles and taxes rise
What the fuzz you doing to make it right?

Slayer, what you going to do
For the bloody skies of wool?
You’re all led by fools
Oh, you’ve gotta show someone
Sooner or later, you’re not a fool

Gonna make it right with the lonely Moon
Gonna make it right with somebody new.

In the event of your charming death
Would you even mind if I wasn't charged for theft
As the freedom crumbles and taxes rise
What the fuzz you doing to make it right?

Slayer, what you going to do
For the bloody skies of wool?
You’re all led by fools
Oh, you’ve gotta show someone
Sooner or later, you’re not a fool

Untold lies
I’ve been told
You were right
You came home

*********************************************************

015-Olivia of the Snow

There was a man who came alive
Within the walls of his own mind
When he stopped to watch half way down the stairs
In rectangle windows two winter hares
Fight it out on top of snowy hills
I was gently abducted by common thrills
It began to snow as you arrived
Even if you don’t love me I won’t mind

Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow

Sometime in the future when things don’t seem fair
When you have to pay for breathable air,
Are you really loved for what you do?
Are you really loved as I love you?

Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow

There was a man who came alive
Within the walls of his own mind
When he stopped to watch half way down the stairs
In rectangle windows two winter hares
Fight it out on top of snowy hills
I was gently abducted by common thrills
It began to snow as you arrived
Even if you don’t love me I won’t mind

Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow
Olivia of the snow

016-Calista of the Seven Stars


As I held you in my willow arms
I repeated the words of Don:
You and I will be the best of friends,
Even when I am gone.
Only Yesterday you told me, Dad,
Got to drink your water please
If you want to pick me up again
When I’ve fallen to my knees,
If you want to be there when I’m lost,
When I look the other way,
Or perhaps when everything at last
Is beginning to make sense.

Calista do you love
The way the clouds above
Push and shove

When you listen to my noisy maze
You will find yourself in there
You’re that angel with rosy hair
With about as much imagination
As the skies are filled with stars
And a real passion for your plays
Full of fiery characters.

Calista do you love
The way the clouds above
Push and shove
Calista do you love
The way the clouds above
Push and shove

Calista, in the sky, you’re the seven lights.
Calista, in the sky, you’re the seven lights.

*********************************************************

017-Lily the Mermaid II

Waiting for my only winter rose.
Will all your bold dreams decompose?
King Kurt replied, reap what you sow.
Reading the rose tea leaves in the snow, oh.

Wish you were more like Billy Corgan.
Wish you had thought ‘bout being a star.
You know those stars, they are already dead.
Were we that far apart in our cloudy shed? No we weren’t.

After Hokusai’s wave we both cried.
Wandered on like mages to watch two suns rise.
Will we find the mermaids beyond the dunes?
Will they be loved like I love you?

My flower of Summer
My flower of Winter, oh my love

*********************************************************

018-Kimiko the Oaken Empress

Kimiko was lost in the woods of Harry Potter
We looked for many a moon and then we got her
Secret dots and dashes, she left us for the wild
Now she is ruling the East with a big smile
There is a saying about a skin you’re selling
But like Dersou she had no trouble felling
Deadly bears as she rides out to the mountains
And the warriors now she has stopped counting
Then Ouzala said:

You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer
Shedding light in the dark
You’re a shadow dancer, you’re a shadow dancer
Redefining the dark

Listen to the bugs and the bees when they’re in hover mode
You’ll realise that you’re not just like the others
You’re pretty cool and your hair is long and golden
You’ve got a voice that amazes, gives me shivers
There was a time when you wanted nothing other
Than to roll in a ball and wait for dinner
That may be over exaggerating Daddy
But look at what you’ve become, and not just bigger.

You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer
Shedding light in the dark
You’re a shadow dancer, you’re a shadow dancer
Redefining the dark

You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer
You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer
You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer
You’re a solar dancer, you’re a solar dancer

Kimiko was lost in the woods of Harry Potter
We looked for many a moon and then we got her
Secret dots and dashes, she left us for the wild
Now she is ruling the East with a big smile
There is a saying about a skin you’re selling
But like Dersou she had no trouble felling
Deadly bears as she rides out to the mountains
And the warriors now she has stopped counting

019-Pouchina from China

Calista steps into a room, everyone stops -
Doing what they were doing – their eyes are glued
Swishes her golden locks and hums the song of a fox
There is no doubt – about her magical tune

Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl

Calista is riding a snail to her incredible house
In the mouth of a dragon that once
Drove all the villagers mad and ate all but a mouse
That was until one of Calista’s stunts
Knocked a bucket onto a dog that barked and bit a giraffe that ran into
Into an eagle that flew
Wildly into a cliff and on impact detached a jagged rock
That fell on the skull of the dragon she drew
The skull of the dragon
Dragon

Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on girl
Turn the lights on
Turn the lights on

Calista from China
Calista from China

020-Yumi in the Kanji Clouds

Chase the bears
Run after the hares
Flee the stairs
To despair

I was known for, can’t deny it,
Losing battles against my own shadow, my shadow,
Shadows of the bright night.
Can’t deny who will cry,
Who will see more than the eye?

Gently go for the prize
Use your camouflage in style
Under the ground, bite or be bitten
Wipe your mouth. Mother called.
Yumi, grab your bow and arrow
And aim for the marrow
Like there’s no tomorrows
Or you’ll be kind of cold, cold.

Stack up the bricks, Human!
California roll, pretend you still know how,
How bloody mornings go, still
Who’ll be looking (out) for your now, my love?
You and your Feather
Sister of the clouds.
You don’t know what she just told me now.

Yumi in the kanji clouds
Yumi you can speak to owls
Yumi in the kanji clouds
Yumi you can speak to owls
Yumi you can touch the hearts.
Of the people who’ve lost their art.
Touch, touch, touch, touch my heart

Help me grow a flower, you sang
Writing kanji-thoughts, Yumi Chan.
See that Naboo star?
Ready for you, Grande-Soeur.

Can you find me now?
Yumi, you can,
Touch the stars.
Yumi chan

021-Plume and the Pink Pandas

Sea lions, tigers, pandas and giraffes,
See all the bravest warriors bite the dust.
And still, the great ants and viruses
Seem to not have noticed all the fuss.

In your eyes, where did the woodland go?
The same place where the light has gone.
Hear the cries of crystal condor
Soaring where the night is long.
And a rose of diamonds
Grew where the light has gone.
Oh, bioluminescent carps
Dissolve where the night is long.

There was never a woodland that
Never ended, it’s easy to pretend.
There was never the most dazzling kingdom of species
To ever roam our crippled Earth . . .
We slammed the door on
the Creatures that didn’t want more than what they needed.

Ooh, Oh, oh
Where the light has gone.
Soon the pink pandas
Will climb to where the light has gone.
Then artificial plants
Will climb where the light has gone.
New kinds of birds
Will rule where the light has gone.
Plume (from old planet Earth)
Will shine where the light has gone.

Don’t let me stop you crawling
Walk straight into the burning
Black woods for the black and yellow
Don’t let me stop you falling

Don’t let me stop you learning
New birds, won’t do what you tell them.
Pink pandas show the grown-ups
Lost lands, they have no owners.
