Carnival of light in june

A floating cloak from the sidewalk told us
“a mask don't laugh but yells you the truth”
in a carnival of light in june

we crowned our heads with a eight shaped garland
we're stepped out the porch and the man raised his hand

in a carnival of light in june
we've been turned to stone
smiles sculpted like two wounds
just like ruins
from the golden age

behind the sound of a silver trumpet
and a snare drum and a flute made of bone
in a carnival of light in june

we've been turned to stone
smiles sculpted like two wounds
just like ruins
from the golden age

Press for illusion

First floor where you always lived
not strived too far from your roots
don't you dare turn around
now you're barefoot where your boots?
Press for illusion

Second floor the door is open
fingers crossed until your room
on the desk now graze a zoo
horses runnin' in the hallway
Press for illusion

On the last floor no one too
just a fishbowl in the roof
red fishes swim in the ceiling
aiming to where they belong
Press for illusion

Shimmering

Drips the chocolate from your ice cream cone
while an airplane fly behind you and breaks your tale
erasing your past of what you've been told
or was a ship that docked and snorted like a whale?

A marble moon make a ring of the sun upon the horizon
right between mercury and mars
seagulls are on their routes and we wait for the stars
the daylight fade and overwhelm the past

You're a shimmering distant star
just an almost blasting endless song
So light and darkness are always built anew
and so are me and you
* Minnaloushe creeps through the grass Alone and wise,
And lifts to the changing moon His changing eyes *

You're a shimmering distant star
just an almost blasting endless song
that's not written in your past
in abiding flow the world in you collapse
just a phase that it won't last

Veronica

The stains are no more so don't regret for what is worth
the passing of days with at least a little happy song
I know the lawn where you've been led, Veronica

that remedy worked, and all of the crows are gone
you've left windows open wide to watch if they were dreams or not
to know if there's a bond between you and them, Veronica

your cloths soaked in rain so all of the stains are gone
and swirling like soft rushes they slipped downwards in the pond
I know there's a bed where no one sleeps, Veronica

Kyoto in pictures

Little thin Japanese baby
with worn skirt and green long coat
Little thin Japanese baby
you can talk not sayin' a word
and those words I can't translate
those words are still in my heart

And are miles and miles between us and are monsters in the sea
and they lurk and they deceive us, while they wait they sharp their teeth

Little thin Japanese baby
you ain't japanese at all
Little thin Japanese baby
storing pictures in your drawer
and those pictures don't mean nothing
all those faces tell us lies of what we wanted to be

And are miles and miles between us and are monsters in the sea
and they lurk and they deceive us, while they wait they sharp their teeth
and if all I missed were you I would haved just followed you some more
in my DeChirico sundays, empty squares where I got lost

Little thin Japanese baby
storing pictures in your drawer
you ain't japanese at all

A pagan prayer

Please free me from the old constraint fore the cold season they will return
they've locked my hands but I free my eyes, in this route are not posts telling lies
“save your friends” says the priestess and hold the clouds with both arms

now I can see what the images mean: all our outpost are ruined by the fire
by all those strangers who came from out the town
with their sermons and crosses and knives
“leave this path, there's no way, they won't come out alive”

clouds all gather round
leaves will fall down eventually

Rumble cat

Rumble cat on rainy days
put your trust in what i say
Rumble cat my friend, so let's pretend

Hunting in the dusk
Stray cats just like us
Challenging the strong ones an crawling in the dust
Rumble cat my friend, so let's pretend

Torned blue jean
and sunken cheek
in the hour where noone meet
neither you or me Rumble cat my friend

And now just I have some headaches

Friends and shadows in the end
come together hand in hand
and now you can talk to me and say “hey how are you?”
I'm fine thanks, it's just the flu
and now I just have some headaches
and now I just have…

Friends and shadows I've been led astray
bargaining for freedom, pledgin' to find a way
to find a new vision of you
the way you make me feel
and we shall apart in order to find a cure
and now I just have some headaches
and now I just have some headaches
and now I just have…

Friends and shadows in the end
come together hand in hand
and now you can talk to me and say “hey how are you?”
“I'm fine thanks, it's just the flu”

Show some respect for the shadow

Well, what about me? I discovered the truth that it still exist
free from your circle and your sight
that I learnt to despise

I play fool to catch wise
once bitten twice shy
Now I don't have to think twice,
because that's all well and good
but not so kind from you

Show some respect for the shadow

I searched for a heaven in earth for you to kiss from me
where I built a tower and a pit
I choosen each stone and I sculpted a statue of you relying just on memories
pullin you out from your disguise and discovering that only bones remain

Well, what about the gifts, all that boxes from you, they're all made of what you put inside
well there's something old and new always coming from you

Show some respect for the shadow

Down in the park

You hold your breath and count to ten, just do like in the past
cos there's a means to an end and there's nothin here at hand

Down in the park, we playin' cards
and if night comes too soon
just wait for me and give me another clue to find you

Only birch stand all around, and you play with a stick
your scent is different now and I fear what this mean

Down in the park, we playin' cards
and if night comes too soon
another hint of you, another clue
