I can feel it all with tight control And even tighter jeans You can rock n roll with pom poms If you know what it means I like the way your tube socks reach to your knees Can you please the two sides Of Mssr Valentin? When you gaze into me Do you achieve your release Believing is art Not some teenage dream I would pluck your pretty feathers Put them in my crown Little bird, I would never Never ever Let you down

Let every place be the same place And you’ll see the rise of a faceless power Let us gaze through the same black mirror for awhile Let me light this fire Right now there are demonstrators on the bridge Hear their righteous howling Right now there’s a detonator underneath In the hands of a coward Who’d wanna burn that bridge (x3) There’s only me, There is only you and me i know In our high cold tower Right now they would see a demonstration of Your righteous power Go give em all their fix (x3) Go give em all their fix Go give em all their techno-fix Go give em all their fix Go give em all their petrol fix May the gold-lined frequency never fail May your hypothetic currency never fail May the worldwide credit binge never fail May the gold-lined frequency never fail A ray of hope or nothing at all...

Kingfisher 04:47
Words rising off of the land Like a mist, Like a bird in hand And i was stirred Now i know who i am I’m the prince of this volcanic ash And i’m a kingfisher Words took up the pain in my life They sang of my son Sang of my perfect wife And my muse was no thunderclap Shes a small bird She is no more than that And i’m a kingfisher On this black rock, no crops may grow But words take on a bittersweet flow And now I know what i am I’m the prince of this volcanic ash And i’m a kingfisher Of the palm wine we drank In the sacred pool we swam We took up our prayers to the foreign lords and danced Of the palm wine we drank In the sacred pool we swam We took up our prayers to the fallen lords and danced

You say nothing gold stays Why can’t I stay? You say nothing at all Why don’t you call? In the morning… nothings changed I slow dance so slow Cheap wine before the dawn and I Slow dance with your ghost You say nothing gold stays Why can’t I stay? You say nothing at all Why don’t you call?

This flower is blooming Taking on color This romance i cannot survive intact Seek to atomize You dare me to believe We got the feel to come down slow You dare me to believe We got the feel to come down slow You dare me to believe And if we get it right, honey your love light glows I step outside and my tribe is booming Stick figures on a full collapse And we come back high And it rips me to shreds Each thread seeking you Each thread pleasing you And if you’ve seen the lights For the first time and you wanna Hold that pattern in your feeble mind You need a comedown in the champagne shadows And if you need to cry At the sunrise while the Whole night battles in your feeble mind You need to hold on while the champagne shadows unfold And if you’ve seen the lights For the last time and you wanna Hold that pattern in your feeble mind You need to hold on while the champagne shadows unfold
