PLAY IT AGAIN

Somehow you changed me
Somehow you fixed me
I’ve met anxiety
Through my shaking hands

Suddenly you just came
Panic and self-blame
Your song started to play
My cold strength just melted away

Play it again, son
Play it again
‘Cause the whole world
Stops at my feet
When you hold my hand

Somehow you found me
Somehow you saved me
I have learnt that to be brave
You gotta go through fear

The dawn of a new life
Cold butter hot knife
Your song started to play
My cold strength just melted away

Play it again, son
Play it again
‘Cause the whole world
Stops at my feet
When you hold my hand

 

MISS YOU

Hope some day
We will meet again
I will kiss you
And hold you tight
A warm embrace
Of course you’ll ask
About my
Healing needles
And If I’m still playing
Such nice guitar
You gave me on my birthday
And If I’ve been happy
I’ve tried my best
But sometimes is hard
And I miss you

And I miss you
I hear you in your records
I see you in my Japanese comic books
On my bookshelf
Somehow you still around
I hear you upstairs
When some loose tile sounds
And I miss you

 

ON A WIRE

Like a bird on a wire, like a bird on a wire
Like the storm that weights on me
A regret that pays a hidden fee
Like the cold ice inside of me
A remorse that denies to be free

In my time breaking through
In my time the bill is due
In my time never pure
In my time after the cure
In my time waiting for
In my time less is more
In my time living pleased
In my time ignorance is bliss

 

GINGA

“Barcelona, 2003:
A cool guy from the land of sun and samba
Came into our lives
White smile, white boots, funny soul
It’s more than ten years ago
But no one here will ever forget him”

Ginga, around the world spreading your Ginga
Let’s show the world your game, your Ginga

He steps on the field cheered by the crowds
Heads or tails, a whistle, the magic on his side
No greed, no anger, bad vibes on the bench
Rising up after the fouls of life again and again

Outstanding, dribbling all your fears
Frustration, affection, hidden feelings coming out
Blowing out your rage with a 20 meter shot
Did I really just see that? Replay! Replay! Replay!

Ginga, around the world spreading your Ginga
Let’s show the world your game, your Ginga

 

EASY TO SAY

Take my hand
My shoulder, whatever you need
Deep wounds that do not bleed
We’ll never understand

This is not the end
A big cloud of fear, indeed
Be a fighter is in our creed
Now that is hard to stand

Come what may, we’ll keep on fighting
Don’t let yourself be defeated
I know that’s crap and easy to say
But you’re not alone in the way

A fistful of sand
Inconsistent from head to feet
And I’m here to plant a seed
In such wonderful land

Come what may, we’ll keep on fighting
Don’t let yourself be defeated
I know that’s crap and easy to say
But you’re not alone in the way

And it’s not fair. It is a con
You may feel like: “screw it all!”
But you’re gonna make it
At least you’re not alone

 

DISAPPOINTED

We can reach the stars
We can clone a sheep
We can kill each other
But we can’t fight as one

I come to hate my songs
I come to hate my work
So if God exists
Now I know how he feels

Disappointed
I’m over thirty
We’re from the 80’s
We’re the cheated generation

We’ve been motivated
We’ve been left alone
That’s our legacy
A mortgage and a loan

Disappointed
I’m over thirty
We’re from the 80’s
We’re the cheated generation

Disappointed
We’re the cheated generation
We’re from the 80’s

Disappointed
I’m over thirty
I’m From the 80’s
Disappointed

 

FOLK YOU

No man left behind
It would be such a crime
Twelve years old
They gave him a new toy
An AK47

A wounded animal falls
For the sake of the show
She couldn’t be the Pope
She couldn’t give’em hope
She’s a woman

You’ll be my eyes and my ears tonight
You’ll be who’s wondering who’s left behind
You’ll throw the first stone to humankind
You’ll be justifying it, you say it’s folk
And I say folk you

Genetic sentence makes you rich
Or makes you a scavenger
She’s found a handsome guy
She’ll never feel pleasure
She’s been mutilated

Today the shore turns red
They’ve been killing dolphins
Self-flagellation scars in the back of a kid
As personal growing

You’ll be my eyes and my ears tonight
You’ll be who’s wondering who’s left behind
You’ll throw the first stone to humankind
You’ll be justifying it, you say it’s folk
And I say folk you

 

THE STORM

I can feel the storm is coming
A black and lone kimono at the sunset
Moving at the rhythm of the dance of darkness
Keepin’ alive the flame on your chest
Keepin’ in balance the tiger and the dragon of the crest
New sensations, feelings never felt
Your effort, your progress, the colour of your belt
Line against a circle, circle against a line
Where you come from? Here it doesn’t mind
Kenpo doesn’t care if you’re the vassal or the king
Your faith, your religion, the colour of your skin
We raise the guard, neutral stance
We hit each other, hug each other, ‘cause we’re friends
Learning from the black and the white belts
Master to apprentice the wisdom held
Be prepared for the gift of destiny
And everyday a cure for humility

I can feel the storm is coming
While I’m climbing ladders
Can be heard in the distance
The thundering hammers

Grade exam, I recite the creed
Be honest, who you’re gonna cheat?
I think if i deserve it, if I got what it takes
I wonder if I’ve grown and I’ve learnt from my mistakes
Past and present, L for liar
I keep my lineage Master Parker
Getting wiser day by day
Pushed by the hand of the best Sensei
My bare hands are full of grace
Got hammers, claws, attacking mace
I close my eyes, standing horse
Speed, power, accuracy and force
Leaves, swords, long and short forms
And two wings to face storms
The way is long and sometimes narrow
Don’t be afraid, you got a bow’n’arrow
I can feel the storm is coming
While I’m climbing ladders
Can be heard in the distance
The thundering hammers

 

UNLEASHED

I’ve been told
Rules were made to obey
Not to make me happy
And I should comply with

I’ve been told
To never go beyond
Or I would be alone in the dark
Shelterless for the rest of my days

Don’t say your words are wise
I’ve never asked for your advice
Forgive my offence
I’m gonna jump the fence

I feel naked
But here begins my own way
Now I’ve seen a glitter of freedom
I’m heading to myself
I’m heading to myself

I feel insecure
I realize that I was leashed
Now I found a way to name it:
Misunderstood fidelity

Don’t say your words are wise
I’ve never asked for your advice
Forgive my offence
I’m gonna jump the fence
HOME

Home, nowhere like home

I’ve seen much more than seven wonders
My boat has drifted on the seven seas
And I’ve wasted my seven lives
24/7 craving to be

To be at home, nowhere like home
Home, nowhere like home

Reality becomes fake
Reality becomes fake

I want to come back home,
Nowhere like home

Home, nowhere like home

 

DUST

Somebody yells: “the world is on fire!”
I’ve just woke up, I’m half asleep
Blinding lights that I can hardly see

And I know
That stone by stone I built that castle
Now goes to waste, curtains are torn
For dust I am and to dust I’ll return

You say that it’s over
Everything is done
Everything is made
Then let’s get a toast for the old times sake

If I got wrinkles is for having laughed so much
Here I am
And if I’m going bald is from being stroked so much
Here I stay

Sometimes in my head
I believe it, or I think so
But in the end, I don’t feel it

You say that it’s over
Everything is done
Everything is made
Then let’s get a toast for the old times sake

If I got wrinkles is for having laughed so much
Here I am
And if I’m going bald is from being stroked so much
Here I stay

For dust I am, I am
To dust I’ll return, I’ll return
LEAVE IT ALL BEHIND

Thinkin’ of tomorrow
Maybe I’m losing it
A labyrinth of sorrow
That I can’t quit
For one day I’ll pass away
This crap in my mind
I’m trying to find the way
For you to live it behind
To leave it all behind

When I leave please remember
To keep your heart wide open
I never was so cruel
Just get what you deserve
And when you’re sad in September
Remember how happy we were
And leave your tears behind
Leave it all behind

I’m acting as a saviour
And maybe I’m lame
That’s my bad behaviour
I’m blowing the flame
These words must be burnt away
Erase and rewind
I’m trying to find the way
For you to leave it behind
To leave it all behind

When I leave please remember
To keep your heart wide open
I never was so cruel
Just get what you deserve
And when you’re sad in September
Remember how happy we were
And leave your tears behind
Just leave it all behind

 

OVERPROMISE

Longing for the primetime
And all the media pantomime
A trendy label on a bottle
Of an overrated wine
Loud, flashy, colour lime
Imitation Calvin Klein
An army of cardboard trucks’n’tanks
My staging is sublime

I must be missing
Something in my childhood
Now I’m showing off
My pathetic adulthood
My creed is the key
To have a big, big mouth
And never chicken out

I’m the overpromise
The circus and the fake
My mouth is big enough
To eat the big piece of the cake
I’m the overpromise
To dig is what I care
Never try to uncover
To reveal, don’t you dare

Sometimes reputation calls
You fail and then it falls
It’s time to set up a campaign
To remind that I got balls
Big posters on the walls
See my face at the malls
It’s just a frame; everything is fixed
A close product recall

 

APPLE PIE

He would, oh no, play the fool
Rusting my steel
She would, oh no, play it cool
Rotting my peel
And he would, oh no, seem to fade
As the promises he made
And she would, oh no, sharpen the blade
And set her feelings trade

I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe

He would die; he asked me how deep is the river
She would lie; she’s supposed to be an achiever
Apple Pie, they each assumed to be the giver
Star ships collide, when space becomes thinner

He would, oh no, play the fool
Rusting my steel
She would, oh no, play it cool
Rotting my peel

They’re so duff at lying

 

I AM THE PLASTIC

I am the plastic
I roam the seven seas
I am the hand that feeds
Use me once
Come on, use me once
Fill me up, don’t you stop
I am the plastic

Love me one time
You don’t care
Dump me baby
Anywhere

See the turtle swim
Take me to the woods
Hear the seagull pry
Cowardly up the blue sky
Don’t worry none
I will carry the goods
I am the plastic

Love me one time
You don’t care
Dump me baby
Anywhere

Let me blow in the wind
I have a thousand lives
Love me two times
How lucky I cry
Go on, dump me then
I’m invincible
I’m the plastic
Fill me up, don’t you stop
I am the plastic

Love me one time
You don’t care
Dump me baby
Anywhere
Drag, drag, drag
It’s just a small affair
Don’t you tell me it’s not fair
I am the plastic
You need me there
You need me there
I am the plastic
