LYRICS

CHASED

There he is talking to the devil

Something's on his mind and it ain't no good

Why else would they meet where the roads have ended

It ain't no good

There's a girl, chased by old men

Or is it in her mind

It ain't no good

How else would she dare to walk on her own

It ain't no good

 

When all the lights have been turned off

Sleep well tonight

 

There he is talking to the devil

Something's on his mind, and it ain't no good

Why else would they meet where the roads have ended

It ain't no good

They made a pact, to let the rain in later

Time to fuck her mind

Sleep well tonight

We make you lose all the dreams and colours

But sleep well tonight

 

When all the lights have been turned off

Sleep well tonight

 

The heavy rain begins

The trees are sad and apologetic

They offer no protection

Bare and naked

Ripped off

 

When all the lights have been turned off

Sleep well tonight


ALIA

Do you know my story

I think its unheard of

It’s unheard of

 

I was walking by the street one day

Sunny and warm

When it hit me this thought

Maybe I was

I was immortal

 

I was passing by the well one day

Cloudy and cold

When I heard the bell calling

Calling me now

Calling me beautiful 

 

Do you know my name

It’s Alia 

It’s written on a stone

I hope

Do you know my story

I think its unheard of

It’s unheard of

 

I was walking by the street one day

Sunny and warm

When I heard the bell calling

Calling me now

Calling me beautiful 

 

It was a land of the sad

The eternal was agony and the beautiful was long gone

I was hidden deep and left to the beast to be buried in the ground

 

Do you know my name

It’s Alia 

It’s written on a stone

I hope

DEAF

On the field there’s a man staring at me

He kneels down

Is he hurt

Does he bleed

I don’t need

I don’t need to cover my ears

 

But I feel

I feel the earth underneath

 

The life I have

Who could understand

What silence means to a boy like me

 

On the field the wingless birds play hide and seek

What I see is fire sweep where the heartless breathe

I don’t need

I don’t need to cover my ears

 

But I feel

I feel the earth, underneath

 

The life I have

Who could understand

What silence means to a boy like me

 

On the field

All alone

The man is gone

In my dream so is fear

Haven pure sweet

Hunted down I face the life and sing to heal

 

I don’t need

I don’t need to cover my ears

 

The life I have

Who could understand

What silence means to a boy like me

It is comforting

LONELY NIGHT

How can you do anything good,

when you have to worry all the time

 

I want to marry

I want to carry

Won’t you take this baggage for a while

 

Joking about playing around

One more garbage and I’ll die

 

I’m one step away from giving it up

And then I’ll die a lonely guy

 

It’s gonna be lonely lonely lonely night

Takin’ you takin’ you takin’ your time

Lonely lonely lonely night

It’s gonna be lonely lonely lonely night

Makin’ you makin’ you makin’ you mine

Lonely lonely lonely night

 

I’m not the same guy who you once knew

I’ve been to hell and never came back

All I can do is live in the past

And it’s not the life I want for you

It’s gonna be lonely, lonely, lonely night

Takin’ you takin’ you takin’ your time

Lonely lonely lonely night

It’s gonna be lonely lonely lonely night

Makin’ you makin’ you makin’ you mine

Lonely lonely lonely night

LIE

Forget-me-not objects rising from beneath

Sharing stories of lived lives of people

 

Handcuffed to the trees the spirits pled for mercy

And they're numb and they regret

Not rejoicing to the full

When they still had the chance 

 

But you know they played music very loud and I know

How they played to the night

 

It's a lie to say I don't 

It's a lie to say I won't

 

It's a lie to say they're dead when born to the painful

Cause items from beneath are not those of the never-land

 

Real people held hands

They painted the walls

They cried out loud

It's a lie to say I don't 

It's a lie to say I won't

 

One last time

Floating in the air

Catch them stories

Read them aloud

And hold them dear

PIT

Alone in the pit

In the dark

In the woods

 

Seek the salvation

Look not to the light

But in to the eyes of the stranger

Alone in the pit

In the dark

In the woods

 

Faith in salvation

Look not to the light

But in to the eyes of the stranger

To the friend

You don’t know

Why he’s here

But he is

And he takes

And he holds

And he saves

 

Alone in the pit

In the dark

In the woods

 

Alone in the pit

WAR CHILDREN

War children wrapped in a cloth

Under the blanket

Eyes are closed

Heads shaved but a beauty

So kind all this time

All this time

Holes and stones

Broken and crumbled

Playing in the ruins

Minding the noise

War children

Where do you hide

Where do you go

Will you see the change and the hearts when they melt

It takes time

It takes time to forgive

FIFTEEN THOUSAND

I have an angry face all day

Can feel the wrinkles forming on my forehead

 

I have an angry face all day

I need to testify

Testify to your pain

 

Fifteen thousand roubles for a life unlived

That’s how much you’re worth

 

Need to breathe not to freeze

Need to run not to fall

Need to keep moving on

 

Fifteen thousand roubles for a life unlived

That’s how much you’re worth

 

I have an angry face all day

Can feel the wrinkles forming on my forehead

 

I have an angry face all day

I need to testify

Testify to your pain

LES FILLES

Petites filles perdues

Dans un café tout noir 

Interdits 

Raconter 

Les secrets

Les effrois

 

Contraire à l’assurance

Avis des gardiens

Les filles se cachent

Et font des faux pas

 

Mouillées partout

Mouillées comme avant


Petites filles perdues

Dans un café tout noir 

Interdits 

Raconter 

Les secrets

Les effrois

 

Contraire à l’assurance

Avis des gardiens

Les filles se retrouvant

Prennent l’avantage


Mouillées partout

Mouillées comme avant

LOVE SONG TO THE DRUM

I sing to the drum

You’ve bruised me ’til I’m done

You’ve taken my flesh

You eat on my soul

Until I’m done done done

I sing to the drum 

You’ve bruised me ’til I’m done

You’ve taken my flesh

You suck on my bones

Until I’m done done done

I sing to the drum 

You’ve bruised me ’til I’m done

I’ve beaten you down

You skinned me alive

Until I’m done done done

Until I’m done done done

How can I write our love song tonight

When you’ve bruised my perfect thumb

TOGETHER WE GO DOWN

Fear in the tears

But cavemen don’t cry

I’ve built a defence

But cavemen don’t cry

I’m drowning a bird

She’s weak but I’m tender

We breathe the same air

Yet I have the upper hand

 

I’m your slave your my prey

Together we go down

 

In the scariest dreams

Together we go down

 

I’m drowning a bird

She’s weak but I’m tender

We breathe the same air

Yet I have the upper hand

 

Don’t cry

Together we go down
