FIRE

December here's the cold All the trees are fading out All the birds they head on south Chimneys smoke above the clouds And all I want to do is

Stay here by your side Looking straight into your eyes With your body heating mine While outside the snow is wild And all we need is

Fire Burning lightning of desire Shelter for someone who's tired Craving for some rain To wash all our guilts in

The war,the blood,the tears Kids are barefoot in all the lies Hungry wives and angry fists Growing high above the sky All they want is

Fire Burning lightning of desire Shelter for someone who's tired Craving for some rain No one will give in

Here I am again Searching fate into my hands Thru the days and thru the nights Of my lonely unhappy life All I want to do is Stay here beside you all my life Looking straight into your eyes With your thoughts linked to mine While outside the world is ice

 

THE FOURTEENTH OF JULY

For this day the King entered one word in his diary : RIEN !!

Hey mother The sun is high up With his load today Like thunder The cry of all the nation Will explode Today Again Like a trip with no return The King The Crown Will burn !

The Fourteenth of July We'll gather in the light We'll dance our dreams away The Fourteenth of July A smile is in our eyes The future's here to stay

Today the light Like a blindfold ricochet Will bright our lies,our fights

For this day the King entered one word in his diary: Rien ! Which meant that he had not gone hunting and killed a stag. That nothing was worth noting Nothing

Nothing !

 

VICTIMS IN PARADISE

Ceremony in the Churchyard Congratulations ! is all you hear Another microcosmic love nest Is about to dear the devil away today

Secretary's on vacation Honeymoaning in Bali Eating Chop Suey and raw piranhas While the man is dreaming Of how it would be To be King

Cause they are Victims Victims in Paradise

Now the hostess is approaching Your tray table and your safety belts !" Sir your pants are in upright position !" While the Sake' has drowned Sally away

Cause she's a Victim Victim in Paradise

Tom was an accountant working in a factory Counting all the days Counting all the papers Waiting for a wife To take him from this wife Who took him from the wife Who took him away from Sally

Cause he's a Victim Victim in Paradise

Cause they are Victims Victims in Paradise

 

SNIFFAHH

Checkin' on the Wall Street trash Waiting for Black Monday crash I realise it's already tomorrow

Typical husband left in town Family gone left the cats and the hound All night long in Pigalle or Soho She said

Rip it up and shout and say that you love me Rip it up and take me forever

Crawling up my blood vessels burning like fire Filling up my heart with desire

Take me up ! A night of passion Take me up ! A night to share with you Take me up ! I need some action Take me up ! I want some sins to keep insane

Met this girl from Minneapolis All alone and ready for a kiss At noon she was gone with her sorrow Henry Moore came with a bottle of gin My wife called said "Where have you been ?" Do you have a rocket I can borrow She said

Rip it up ...

Hi there ! Do you want some stuff ? I've got some here and it's the best in town! It's a rainbow in the desert A mermaid in your bedroom Hot coffee in the north pole Pillow in a picnic You can trust MC cause I take it too I'll bang the bass And it'll take you up ! Hey man ... Good stuff !

 

LET IT FLY AWAY

Took off from Iceland On a chilly tuesday And it won't stop flying Till the day shows the sun It's going to fly forever Cause it's bound to weather again Though it's wings would rather fall It's the strength of faith

Riding the clouds Like a god from the past It's got the thick world under While the bliss is above It blends it all together In a move of a feather again But somehow There's a signal of a fracture

Sparrow in the sky Danger passing by Let it fly away Right across the day

Sitting for hours In a swampy landscape he's likely risking arthritis For a trophy to shake He can do without it If it's useful I doubt it But somewhere There's a signal of a changing

Sparrow in the sky Danger passing by Let it fly away Right across the day

Swallow in the sky Bound to live or die Let it fly away Right across the day

But some day All the hunters will be preys

 

ANYHOW

Ooh my baby ... Oh your skin's so smooth You drive me crazy Cause you're all so loose You take me Bake me Anticipate me Shake my mountain Bathe in my fountain

Anyhow You can't stop giving Anyhow You still tease me Anyhow You never give your love away Come again Come again

I see the moonlight Shining on your curves Then I feel so tight Like I'm under curse I take you Eat you And now I'll beat you Slash your body For my redemption

Anyhow You're paid to give in Anyhow You teased me Anyhow You'll never give your love again Come again I come again

 

NO NO NO

No no no never let you go No no no never gonna let you know

Tu parles tout le temps de MC Jay Il beat the beat down jump the jam T'es un Techno mec,t'as pas de steak Bouge tes fesses bel espece Tu te sent connard sans tes dollars Bouge te fesses bel espece

No no no never let you go No no no never gonna let you know

Tappe les mains,tappe les mains Tous ensemble ce soir a fond la caisse Bee boy a poil chacun son point Comme les etoiles illuminent la piste Un deux trois rapproche les pattes La dance avance sans un minimum de controle Pendant que la sono assure un Max !

No no no never let you go No no no never gonna let you know

Ooops ! there you gonna loose control You feel like a dummy Cause you haven.t got the money Dance floor's shaking but the city is awaken Like two vamps at day we're gonna hide away

Feeling lonely on the moonlit beach One in a million stones Starving for some human feel To warm my frozen bones I have left the noise behind I have left you there I just can't make up my mind But I hear you shouting clear

No no no never let you go No no no never gonna let you know

 

WAVES

Another day today Crashing on my shoulders Ther's no god to prey No relief from blisters

Another mouth to feed Craving for attention Stepping on the seeds Of new generations

Do we have to know That we're just like feathers ? Do we have to live Oh just like forgotten waves ?

Another game to ease Sex and Drugs and Power Talent is to praise The Politician's on the Tower

Do we have to breathe Only rotting vapors ? Do we have to burn Under acid showers ? Waves ...

Oh Lord If you're really there Keep your mercy On us

Ni lasima tupumue Mvuke unaoozatu ? Ni lasima tu chomecke Chini ya manyunyu makali Mavimbi Ee Mungu Ee Mungu Ee Mungu Ee Mungu Ukiwepo kweli U Tuonee

 

BLOODLINK

So we stand again always hand in hand Looking at the future Dry under the rain proud in thru our plans Growing up this creature We know

Love Will it last forever ? Will we age together ? I wonder Love Will it take our passion To kill the frustration In our hearts ?

Here we are my friend, a father and his son Living their own stories The beginning and the end a circle that was done To secure the memory You know

Son Will it last forever ? Will we see it together ? I wonder My son Will your smile enlighten All the faded crystals In my heart ?

Always together Growing forever There is no wonder It's Bloodlink Bloodlink

So we stand again always hand in hand Living our own stories The beginning and the end A circle that was done To secure the memory

 

WAKE UP

I've been strolling thru the night Need something to stimulate Got to find someone or some kind of pleasure I've been lazy thru my life

Always looking out from gates Seeing the outside world as an adventure I'm eager to perform within a rock'n'roll band But I find it hard to show any ambition

Wake up ! Wake up ! It' just an ordinary day Wake up ! Wake up ! It's just the ordinary way

I've been socialising wrong Can't expect any respect From taking it in total submission I can't stand it anymore

Got to burst this will at once Gotta find an idol and live in the fiction I'm dying to express My opinions and instincts God it's so damn hard To get rid of these constrictions

Wake up ! Wake up ! It's just an ordinary day Wake up ! Wake up ! It's just the ordinary way

 

66...

You can take my house I have left the keys You can take my clothes I don't wish to please

You can take my brain Who needs the knowledge You can take my pride Nothing is left to pledge

Dear friends This is not a goodbye I'm just reaching for the sky

You can burn my fields I've given all my corn You can tear my roots Where was I born ?

You can kill the clouds Who needs all this shade ? You can kill the seas You know where to bathe

Dear friends This is not a goodbye I'm just reaching for the sky

Who are you ? Reaching for the sky Where are you ? Reaching for the sky Why are you reaching for the sky ? How are you reaching for the sky ?

You can keep your car Live in your cell You can breathe your tar Line in your well You can take my skin Hang it on a lamp

You can take my flesh But my soul is out of reach

Dear friends This is not a goodbye
