I shall rove around and feed a little animal A curb that’s resting Upon my beating heart It beats faster when approaching the last day Of an old story Call me nuts or call me weirdo A furious light is brightening outside But I can’t stay still ’cause It’s half awake that piece of nature Sighs and walks away Through this cold old town A place it’s not a place Never mine anyway Can I just stay with you for a while guys I wanna feel the vibe But when I’m here my knees are hurting I might as well take a plane and fly away Any man can be another man Any road leads to another frame As far as I’m concerned A place it’s not a place Never mine anyway

Ain’t our history full of truth? You don’t have to live this way We’ve never seen a single day Of foreign tongues That got us wrong, folks Until we crossed your path We’ll make you strong Though faith needs blood A thousand years Of gold thrown at your feet So they just turned our idols into freaks Ain’t that the fury of demons wearing shoes But I got you my Bloodroot You’ll be with me in every battle As long as I fly with you Run in the wind under the rim of the moon My cheeks painted in red A sign of my own war

Find me through the night When everything’s unbiased Bring me to the light Move heaven and earth today You may dare to speak You’re not as tongue tied as me I cracked a joke, the watchers They were not struck by me I wore my magic ring but I wouldn’t disappear They wrote on my sacred robes With invisible ink They wrote on my sacred robes With invisible ink

Girl with the pumpkin head Don’t quit clapping your hands While he stands by the fire Staring at the flames Till his eyes turn as black as hell Glow worms through his lashes She turns around and dances Pupils like rabbit holes She turns around and dances Hey girl you gotta do it ‘Cause it’s the loudest hush Remember when He used to carry a fish in his head Remember when He used to carry a fish in his head Girl with the pumpkin head

I’m not Gonna fight this battle for you Barely conscious of your closeness Each night It grows stronger Feeding on our dreams Who would venture in the daylight? We’re not good at welcoming the mornings Who would venture in the daylight? Love, it doesn’t grow on trees I keep Dreaming of you Always saying things I won’t remember Our hug’s a dream I woke up lost In the wallpaper of a Brussels room Who would venture in the daylight? We’re not good at welcoming the mornings We don’t belong here We are strange mad souls In the maddest dream

A threshold After a long journey Now you quantify the distance In the mist Before the morning light You were bewitched Shame on you You were bewitched Shame on you A faded memory And then the flesh What have you learnt? What have you left? Just a choir of mermaids Just a stroll through the neighborhood Your beard It stinks of bane and hassle But now You’re wiser In the mist a path Left behind You were bewitched Shame on you You were bewitched Shame on you

You’ve been on your dark side again Haven’t you? You just made me feel unwanted Once again I thought we were invincible I thought we were invincible Predictable… predictable… What’s the big deal? You haven’t slept for days Have you? How did you get so good At this? Can you spy on my dreams? I bet now you can’t Do you still think I have A warm heart and a cold hand? I expected you To be different I expected you To be different What’s the big deal? You haven’t slept for days Have you? How did you get so good At this?

Stuttering morning Amazing beauty But your heart feels Like a bottomless well Your heart feels Like a bottomless well It was just a mouthful Then your own life Turned wretched And cheating Don’t be afraid This is not the end Don’t be afraid This is not the end Damaged dreams Move on in cold blood Though it’s growing stronger And unforeseen Don’t be afraid This is not the end Don’t be afraid This is not the end Damaged dreams

In the mouth of an old mansion Dust is whirling in the light Walls are whispering out of rhyme Once it was crowded here and I Hear their prayers in the night Someone’s scared, someone runs Through the garden, in the pines Now we know the smell of time As I crouch in the bed A low sun’s peering through the lids Playing chess on your back Can I play? Should I play? Otherwise… otherwise… Lay a finger on your skin Trace a line Trace a line Secret threads are now bounded In the shade In the shade Spy the curve of your chin And I see the wild angel of our youth Is it the wild heart of life…? Or… or…
