B i o g r a p h y
 (by Steve Huey)

The atmospheric, melancholy, somewhat medieval soundscapes of Bel Canto (Italian for "beautiful song") mix an essentially synth-based, chamber-rock sound with a wide range of orchestral and folk instruments and have been compared to the Cocteau Twins. The group hails from Norway and consists of ethereal vocalist Anneli Marian Drecker, plus Nils Johansen and Geir Jenssen. The group claims to draw its inspiration from powerful energy fields, including those of the female and the earth's gravitational pull; additionally, their compositions sometimes draw on world music and the ambient experiments of Brian Eno. Bel Canto released its first album, White-Out Conditions, in 1987. After 1989's Birds of Passage, they recorded 1992's Shimmering, Warm and Bright and 1996's Magic Box.

White-out conditions



Blank Sheets


When we're discovering lies
Our pride will be in vain
Now, recirculate your thoughts
Make them new again
Well, do you know where to start
And do you see the end
You're swallowing books
This is just like the last
And you're wasting your time
In searching for your past
Well, do you know where to start
And do you see the end

And when we return
We are all ashamed
Because the promises of life
We'll never forget
And all that you say
Discloses what we are
We know our sheets will always
Maintain blank

When do you hide in your dreams
Do you look behind
Play around with the truth
Constructed in your mind
Well, do you know where to start
And do you see the end

And when we return
We are all ashamed
Because the promises of life
We'll never forget
And all that you say
Discloses what we are
We know our sheets will always
Maintain blank

Dreaming Girl

I am such a peculiar girl
Have my dreams and thoughts in another world
But I live my life
So lost in time, so lost in space
I belong to an unknown human race
But I live my life

Perhaps, I will come back again
But I, I don't bother how or when

See all my dreams don't belong to you
They have nothing with your world to do
They just live my life
So who are you, o' so wise
Who can tell what is wrong or right

And I'll just stay right where I am
My dreams belong to dreaming land

I'm not coming back again, my dreams
Belonging to dreaming land, that's why
I'll stay right where I am, see I
I don't need a helping hand

I am such a peculiar girl
Keep my secret thoughts in a secret world
That's how I live my life
So don't tell me how one's supposed to live
'Cause your eyes don't shine, they have done their time
You have lived your life

That's why, I'll stay right where I am
'Cause I, I don't want to die my friend

No I, I don't want those withered eyes
'Cause I, I want to live my life
No I, don't want those withered eyes
See, I want to live to live my life

Without You

You showed me heaven and hell
You said you loved me
Then you said you could do well
Without me

O' I've got that, I've got that pain
Something inside me
A kind of pain

In some time maybe I'll wonder how it was
I can't imagine I'll never wonder how it was
I just remember too well

You showed me heaven and hell
You said you loved me
Then you said you could do well
Without me

Capio

Capio
Sera` la candidez
Sera` la nina
La historia pasa

Well. I'll love my life
Until the very hour
When I'll be broken
Into the cold

Sera` la candidez, la historia pasa
And another fall
Y en el jardin, yeah
It will be told

Someone who'll end it all
Someone who'll fall
Someone who'll end it all
Somebody's fault

Y en jardin, yeah

White-Out Conditions

In the light of my fire
I see footsteps in snow
In white-out conditions
My eyes have no view
In the light of my fire
I see grey sticks in snow
In white-out conditions
There's no trace of the track at all

A peak is blazed wiith the light from the moon
And there is no view in darkness
I search for the moonlight

In the light of my fire
I see cornice on stones
In white-out conditions
There's no further view
In the light of my fire
I see grey flakes of snow
There is no sign of life here at all

A peak is blazed wiith the light from the moon
And there is no view in darkness
I search for the moonlight

Upland

Lyse netter
Tindrende og klar
Vide landskap
pne landskap

Bright nights
Twinkling and clear
Vast landscapes
Open landscapes

Elv og daler
Fjord og fossefall

Sol der str i brann

Rivers and valleys
Fjord and waterfall
Open tracts
Where the sun is afire

Baltic Ice-breaker

Winter: a season of death
You hear a distant sound
Screaming, whining
Along with the cracking of the ice
You can hear someone shouting out your name

The scratching, the screaming, the whining
You're frozen to death
Or is it just the sounds of ice
Under your keel

And you know, you know you're trapped
Now you're trapped
Corpses are floating up in your wake
Floating up
A voice disappears with the wind
Blows away
Along with the cracking of the ice
The track will be frozen over in a while

The scratching, the screaming, the whining
You're frozen to death
And soon there will be
Only the ice and the snow
Only the ice and the snow

 Birds of passage

Look 3

No kindness
When there's lack of dignity
Politeness
Was to join simplicity
No caution
Without pure sincerity
Compliance
Has to join with bravery
No mildness
Without some solidity
No power
Without simple honesty
No courage
Without justice joined within
Good nature
And discretion makes a team

Dewy Fields

Come
Go to seek and find
What you're hoping for
Come
The treasure is yours
You're running out of time
When morning comes
Your dreams are real
In dewy fields
Your trace is left behind
So very little time
So very little hope
But you're looking for someone
While the rain is falling down
Looking, seeking, you're searching for someone
You're crossing dewy fields
You're walking in the woods
There's someone catching up
There's someone watching over you
Keeping secrets my precious thing
Your treasure is
Your enemy

Continuum

Embrujo, bajo el sol,
Cuando llueve y sube el calor
Mojando la piel

Ven aqui, junto a mi,
Mueve el aire y empuja el aqua
Apaga ese rumor

Alli no te detienes,
Giras y siempre te mueves
Una maldicion?

Y te obliga a bailar
Ay ay y no puedes parar
Es un ritmo oculto, magico
Continuum

Embrujo, bajo el sol
Cuando llueve y aprieta el calor
Mojando mi piel

Ven aqui ( ven aqui )
Junto a mi ( junto a mi )
Mueve el aire y empuja el agua
Apaga ese rumor

Alli no te detienes
Corres I siempre te mueves
Una maldicion ?

Mama, ma, mama, mama
Ay

En un ritmo oculto, magico

Es un ritmo oculto, magico

Ritmo oculto, ritmo.


The suffering

My grief is deep, my days are dim
Give me a knock on my door
Say that you will be mine
And stay with me forever
As nothing can refresh my soul
I would have been happy to know
Cause I felt so safe when I looked into your eyes
I was mistaken but now I'm sure
I love you still
But silently inside
I know my feelings won't change your mind
So what am I gonna do
I gave away everything to you
I suffer from painful blows
Will it last forever
It's allright, I won't cry
Tears won't help me find the reason
Why you suddenly disappeared out of my sight
I was mistaken, but now I'm sure
I love you still
But silently inside
I know my feelings won't change your mind

Picnic on the moon

Have I ever told you what I feel?
About what's to come and why we live
Ever since I was a little kid
I've been cautious and I've sealed my lips
But then I found this the book inside a drawer
A girl treasuring thoughts
Here's what I wrote:
That one day, we will fly
Together in a baron's balloon
Straight up into the air
And when er have arrived
We'll take a little picnic on the moon
And watch the earth below
I'm lost again
Needing a friend
Cause I'm so alone
For the last time the sun is rising
I have a feeling
It's time we talk about it
Cause I'm still on my own
I'm so alone

Intravenous

Send me a message, Escort me through the passage
Into the dark side of life, Let me slip into the eternity
I sense a light, a cave so bright
Oh, what a trauma, Release me from this coma
Why won't they let me escape?
Drip, drip, intravenous emergency, And so in vain
The heal the stains and wounds on my body
So torn apart and bloody, I do not wish to return
I don't wanna be one of the crippled ones
Do hear my prayer, Don't fade away
Send me a message, Escort me through the passage
All I need is a sign
Skip over this emergency
Forgive my sins, don't force me in
To live like a phantom
Still, this is nothing random
I'm meant to suffer and wait
But one minute more and it might be too late
So give a sign, I'm losing time

 Oyster

The key to your box, it is out of my reach
I've been searching for it so long
If I could live in the open sea
I would surely have found the one
And I'd open the lid, Look in , See stones
Here by the shore, it's so quiet
And no pebbles for miles around
It's getting dark, and I wonder
If I ever will find my love
So please open the lid and bring the stones
'cause the answer must come, from you , alone
See I need some very few of
You blue pebbles
No real love; no aquamarines
Equitime points
Should I stay or go?
Tell me why do you hide inside the deep
With your jewellery box, the stones, the key
In the wave-clutter I can see your hair
Why won't you come near?
Why don't you dare?
See I need some very few of
You blue pebbles
No real love; no aquamarines
Equitime points
Should I stay or go?
I need a truehearted lover
Mermaid, bring me those stones

 Birds of passage

Feel the winds on the ridges, see the whirls in the meadows.
The ice-capped reed announce that the air is colder.
I feel the strength of my heart quiver inside me,
But I have no cure for the lunger in your eyes.

So don't ask that question 'cause i don't know the reason why it must be just like this.
No don't ask that question, believe me, i don't know why it has to end this way.

The wind will carry me away.
The wind that would have killed us both, it saves my life.
Your wish I'll keep in my mind,
And if it won't come true our dream will dream.

I don't know why it must be like this so please don't ask that question 'cause i don't have the answer.
I don't know why it has to end this way so please don't ask that question 'cause i, i don't know why.

So don't ask that question 'cause i don't know why it must be like this.
No don't ask that question 'cause i, i don't know why it has to end this way.

*** Thanx a lot to Klukkan for this one ***

A shoulder to the wheel

You're conquered and your blood is pounding
In your ears
But you're doing fine
Find the broken pieces and then start anew
You make yourself believe that you did
Something right
You're denying your only wish
By forgetting your promises
Once and for all
And for ever more
If you finally reach your aim
You will never be able to
Gain back the time you lost between
You're trying hard to reconstruct your image
And you're doing right
But I think that you will always stay like this
When you put your idle shoulder to the wheel

 Time without end

Hope measuring time without end
You could be just like the sun
Beautiful like a dream
Innocent like a child
Heroic and brave
Like the kings and the warriors in the legends
Behold the depths of your innermost soul
A minotaur walking in endless despair
Mythical like a dream
Invisible like a soft breath of wind
But still in your fantasy
This will always be real
I'll show you who you are
I'll furnish you with a burning desire
I'll show you who you are
I'll furnish you with a burning desire

Shimmering, Warm and Bright

Unicorn

There is a chapel in the woods
Where from the farthest-seeing senses rule
There is a scroll inside a casket...
Clear blue eyes have worn this outfit
Yes I knew it was no moonshine, it is real
I feel much better
Now I know this spiral shaft
Can possess the brightness of the light
Oh, I sayeth, thou art mine true companion
And I wish
Thou wilt enter my kingdom
Oh, mesmerising unicorn
When if danger it will glow
A glimmer can foresee all threats to come
Gone are disbeliefs and doubts
It would be nice, so nice...
Oh, I sayeth, thou art mine true companion
And I hope, thou wilt enter my kingdom
Oh yes, I wish, I really wish

Summer

The place they were stranded
The traces that they made
All got washed away
The people before us
The fires that they burned
Somehow all want out
Let's make a decision
Alone I cannot judge
The tide is coming in
It's all for the better
Come with me if you want
'Cause I am heading home
But I feel no guilt
I'm doing all the things that I want to do
Do we all believe in contemplation
Do we all believe it?
I put my boat right on the water
I hear the voices calling, but is it you?
Do we all believe in endless summers
Do we all believe in summer?
So do you remember
Or is it what you're told
Who am I to know?
It's all for the better
Come with me if you want
'Cause I am heading home
I am putting my boat on the water...

Die Geschichte Einer Mutter

Sie hatte ein Kindlein
So schwach, wie ein Keim unter'm Schnee.
Dann klopfte jemand an die Tr
Kam herein, nahm den Kleiner und fuhr
...Es war der Tod
Sagt mir, Nacht und Wasser
Wo'st mein Kind?
Geh mal durch die Wlder
Und du findest's.
Die Mutter, sie weinte
Und sie lief durch die Wlder so tief.
Sie sah ein Treibhaus dort fern
Ging dahin, sie sprte ihr Kind war da.
Sag mir, weiser Grtner
Wo'st mein Kind?
Such mal unter'n Blumen
Und du findest's.
Sie fand ihr Kindlein
Kleiner Keim, mit dem Puls so schwach.
Dann kam der Tod in das Treibhaus,
Es blieb kalt, ihre Hnde kalt wie Eis.
Hr mal, arme Mutter
Dein Liebling
Htte nie gesund und froh gelebt.
Reich mir dieses Keimchen, bitte dich
Und sein Herzchen sende ruh.

Waking will

The reptiles escaped, who said `booh'?
Was it me, but who then was I?, what made them fear?
It's dark and it's cold, and I feel so old
I'm going down
I'm going down to chase some reptiles
So autonomic, and you interupt my dream
You interrupt me, my old brainstem is talking
And you interrupt my dream, you interrupt me
The kites fly up high, I'm free, I run
But from heaven fall the bluebirds, they hit the ground
The sun warms my face, and I feel
It ain't the end for all the living,
It ain't no end for the living, no!
My intuition, and you interrupt my dream
You interrupt me, deep in here it is hidden
And you interrupt my dream, you interrupt me
You woke me up, I'm forgetting, and you interfere
You interrupt my dream
It's so autonomic...

Shimmering, Warm and Bright

There's an old, old giant
Sneaking around inside this house
Help move the cupboard
Make a huge barricade
So he won't enter
Draw some life from the sun and the day
We heard a noise, and it took shape
I mean cold, cold blood
Running right through deep inside our veins
What is he gonna tell us?
Shimmering, warm and bright
Shimmering warm on the opposite side
Isn't he gonna tempt us?
Shimmering, warm and bright
We need a helping hand
We have lost our touch
If his shadow appears
We're going to fall apart
I mean we got addicted long time ago
But that spooky, old giant won't withdraw
Give me a sign, oh good omen
Give me a sign, oh good omen
What if he does resent us?
Shimmering, warm and bright
Shimmering warm on the opposite side
Isn't he gonna tempt us?
Shimmering, warm and bright

Sleep in deep

While the cold wind blows, the heroes return
Left are troubled souls, that nothing but yearn
For a better day, for some rightfulness
Will their wounds get healed?
Rest body and mind, let them sleep in peace
Their minds demand a release
>From the dread they hold, oh
Do I need to see, what eyes can not bear?
Do I need to hear, that nobody cares?
For the things I have done
And the things I've learnt
Are now scars in me
Rest body and mind
Let me sleep in deep
And disembody the fear
And the fright I hide
But until then I will pray
That I'll hold on to...

Le temps dgag

A prsent, oui, juste l'instant
Le temps dgag
Mes yeux las sont ferms
En regardant les tout petits points
Je m'assoupis, m'assoupis
Ca, c'est la folie; ne pas dormir de la nuit
Tu me dis: peut-tre qu'il faut
Retrouver les sens
Discerner les nuances
Mais comme tu vois; le coup des points
C'est la pleine lune, la pleine lune
Qui m'a faite comme a et oh-la-la
Ca fait du bien
Embrasse-moi!
Si bien
Tu me donnes la chair de poule
Ca fait du bien
Rien n'est comme la lune qui saoule
Ca fait du bien
A prsent, oui, juste l'instant
Le temps dgag

Et donc bientt mes rves se seront
Accomplis, accomplis
Oui, on aurait dit qu'elle est la source
De mon plaisir
Faisons l'amour!
Si bien

Ca fait du bien
Rien n'est comme la lune qui saoule
Ca fait du bien
Si bien
Des illusions d'optique
Ca fait rien!
Rien n'est comme ces heures magiques
Ca fait du bien



Spiderdust

She lived in limbo
Time showed no mercy
Until a man in grey gave her
Doses of a sweet poision
She got hoodooed, voodooed
She finally got released
She stirred huge cauldrons
With toads and henbane and...
Spiderdust, spiderdust!
Hotchpotch for haunted lusts
Spiderdust, spiderdust!
Hotchpotch for the evil-eyed
Spiderdust, spiderdust!
Hotchpotch for spellbound lusts
Spiderdust, spiderdust!
Hotchpotch for the demonized...
She got voodooed, hoodooed
She got finally redeemed
She stirred huge cauldrons
With toads and henbane and...
She bred toads
She got burnt

Mornixuur

Between the longest days
I search and wonder
You might come inside my world
To escape the doubts, there ain't no other
Reason nor a purpose
Show me the way
When all is ready, set and done
If our dreams and hopes
Will fall asunder...
We are here for a purpose
When our love is alive
We are descendants of love
Alive and awake
We are descendants of love
Free your mind
The early dawn, the early dawn
Way, oh we are, I say we are...
Way...
We are,
We are descendants of love

Magic box

The magic box I

Clink, clink, clatter, rattle
The penny dropped
Iconized, though slightly slouched he
Raised both his arms,
raised his head

Outside the cabinet there stood a little girl,
goggle-eyed and quite atounded
Gazed at the wizard,
Gazed at the crystal-ball

Dear Mr. Sage, what do you see?
Is it my dream? - It was here with me
Now it is lost
Where can it be?

In Zenith

Oh, surely love will come my way
Oh, surely, in time
I'm being in my zenith
The vital youth

The clouds glide by, baby, baby
The clouds and I
Stirred it up into a thunder

Still craving?
I know
It'll get better eventually

In zenith, in zenith
Quiet sleep
In zenith, in zenith

Oh, it is my remedy:
Sunshine - a balcony
Mind and matter
Soil and seed

The birds pass by, baby, baby
The birds up high
Whirled it up into a thunder

Still craving?
I know
Mind you baby, it's mutual
Still craving for love?
Guess you'll find it eventually

In zenith, in zenith
Quiet sleep
In zenith, in zenith
Quiet sleep
Quiet sleep

Still craving?
I know
Mind you baby, it's mutual
Still craving for us?
Guess we'll meet up eventually

Quiet, quiet sleep
Quiet, quiet sleep
Yeah, quiet sleep

Freelunch in the jungle

I know I'm alive
And I do love lovely dos, do you?
Oh yeah, I guess you do
I love being alive
And I hope that love will see me through
In all the things I do

I like the spice in me, I like the spice in you
I've seen it twice in me and I've seen it twice in you

I know I'm alive
Until all my dreams are all come true
And some things are blue
I know I'm alive, I know I am
'Cause if I was not, I would be damned
And, so I guess, would you
Yeah

I like the spice in me, I like the spice in you
So throw a dice for me and I'll throw a dice for you

Oh, we all cling on tight to pine-tree tops
Oh, we are the lucky stars, lucky stars
Oh, we all cling on tight to pine-tree tops
Oh, we're just a little bit too excited
Little bit too excited for me X2
Je vis avec baloo l-bas
Je vis bien l-bas
Oui on mange ...
...
Understand?

I know I'm alive 'cause I do love lovely dos, do you?
Oh yeah, I know you do
Bien sur
Yo!

I'm in love with life, I know I am and I'll try to keep it spick and span
To let my love shine through

I like the spice in me, I like the spice in you
He put the eyes in me, a little bit the eyes in you

Oh, there's a crocodile beneath the mud
It wants a little snack, a little snack
There's a crocodile beneath the mud
It is a little bit too excited
Little bit too excited for me X2
Je vis avec baloo l-bas
Je vis bien l-bas
Little bit too excited for me
This is too excited for me
Oui on mange ...
Bien sr pas loin de moi

Oh, when you cling on tight to pine-tree tops
I'd say shake and bend, shake and bend
Oh, when you cling on tight to pine-tree tops
You'll feel a little bit too excited
Little bit too excited for me X2
Ecoute, j'ai deja dit tout a
Je vis bien l-bas
Little bit too excited for me
This is too excited for me
Oui on mange ...
Pourquoi pas loin de moi ?
Little bit too excited for me
This is too excited for me
Ecoute, j'ai deja dit tout a
Je vais bien l-bas
Little bit too excited for me
This is too excited for me
Je vis avec baloo l-bas, bas, bas
...

** Thanx a lot to Juha & Liadan who help me with this one **

Rumour

This is the morning
When our feelings rise together with the sun
There are the feelings that are yet to be awoken
How many wishes fade to nothing
Once they face reality?
How many wishes turn to grief?
How many wishes going on and on and on and on.
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Ouh, hey, hey
I bless the sunshine
With my love-disease and all my knees and more
I bless the sunshine and no shadows haunt my walls
Blue is a state of mind
Blue makes you colourblind
Beware of it, beware of it

You talk about a rumour
You talk about dead-end streets
About this rumour
Its not the way to think
Talk about a rumour
Then talk about a higher love
You know it won't
It won't satisfy my needs
It won't satisfy my needs
Say ne, ne, ne, ne, ne, ne, ne

Talk about a rumour

No one expected this
That I should falter in a maudlin sky
No one expected this
But I misjudged and aimed to high
Blue is a sacred place
Where shattered dreams find shelter, well
Blue is a state of mind
Blue makes you colour-blind

You talk about a rumour
You talk about dead-end streets
About this rumour
It's God in me
So, if you talk about a rumour
Then talk about a higher love
You talk about a rumour
When all it takes is simple love
And love and love and love and love
Simple love
And love and love and love and love
You're too high
Blue makes you colour-blind, yeah
Yeah hehe, love ....



Sleepwalker

Grandpa gor trapped in the walls of mist
He tried to flee and measure out the view from his braincloud
But the higher he climbed, the more they dragged him down

He loved to sing
He didn't dare to talk
He loved to sing but he didn't dare to talk

A woman got injected with the poison from a man
Struggled for a lifetime to wake up and understand
Steady on, sleepwalker
Steady on, sleepwalker

There's so much more than this I swear
There's so much more than this
Would you care?
Know that someone like this could have been spared
Life's worth more than this, I swear

The longer you let it wait it'll catch you up, you up
Whenever you walk away, it'll catch you up, you up
If you do ignore their fates, it'll catch you up, you up
The consequenses of foul play is that it'll catch you up, see?

Boy, it's got to stop, to stop!
Boy, it's got to stop, to stop! S.T.O.P

Steady on, sleepwalker
Steady on, sleepwalker
Sleepwalker

There's so much more than this I swear
Life's worth more than this
Would you care?
No, that someone like this should have been there
Know there's more love to life than this

The longer you hesitate, it'll catch you up, you up
Whenever you look away, it'll catch you up, you up
Don't watch their lives drift away
It'll catch you up, you up
No, the consequences of foul play is that it'll catch you up, see?

Steady on
Steady on
S.T.O.P

Bombay

I've been to Bombay
I've seen what a man can do
He climbs up a straight rope
Right up to the clear full-moon

And "boom", he is gone
Yeah, heaven is not that far
And limbs from a body are falling down on the ground

Gee! It must be hard to do
Yes, it is true, yes, it is true
I think the limbs belonged to an orang-outang,
Orang-outang, orang-outang

I've been to Bombay
I've seen what a man can do
He climbs up a straight rope
A monkey is with him too

And "boom", he's gone to heaven
He's mighty daring, mighty,
Right he must be some kind'a guru
He's out of orbit, out of orb...

It seems as if the rope was held by one of the Gods,
One of the Gods
So tight! Not like elephants' trunks
They wobbly-wob, wobbly-wob, wobbly-wob

I've been to Bombay
I've been to Bombay
In my youth
I've been to Bombay
I've been to Bombay
In my youth
YaYaeeaoouth!

And "boom", he's gone to heaven
He's mighty daring, mighty right
He must be some kind'a guru
He's out of orbit, out of orbit
The crowd went hurly-hurly
( No, I would never lie to you )
He never came downn, never came down
(Yes, it is true )
He must have gone to heaven
(yes, it is true )
And out of orbit, out of orbit

Paradise

Only for this moment, let me be the one to hold you tight
I'll hush the anguish and the fear with a lullaby
If the stormy waters seize you in your restless sleep, I will safely
pull you out of the deep

Don't ask me why, don't ask me if
Can't you see, you're my blood?
Say you'll put your trust in me although it aches
We'll make the demons go without a trace

Mary, don't go
We'll find paradise in the end
Maybe
Hol on to paradise baby

In a whisper I once heard you vaguely: "I'm in a boat alone in the
raging sea"
We could calm those waves, you and I
We could row the other side
Mary

Hold on

Mary, don't go
We'll find paradise in the end
Maybe
Hold on
It will be paradise one day
Mary, my blood
I will be your side till the end
Marry me my blood and I will be your side till the end, till the end
We could row the other side
Mary


Didn't you know it ?

Hey, sibling souls, are you out there?
Children of the earth, where are we going from here?
'Cause it hurts the young to live in the open with so much love to give
But too little to spare

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make
We stumble and we hesitate
Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make

She said I was not to worry
Hadn't seen her since, but was totally convinced
'Till I heard them say; "Didn't you know it?
Mary, poor child, was alone
When she died"

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make
The promises we disengage
Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make

Time for the unfree
Time to rejuvenate the elderly
Time for the unfree
Time to lend a hand

Time to lend a hand
Time to make a stand

So many things I don't want to know
Told a freind one day but he says I'm o.k
'Cause we're born within the x-geberation
Virtually real with a planet to heal

Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make
We fumble and we hesitate
Yeah, yeah, yeah, the moves we make, the moves we make

Time for the unseen
Time to eliminate tomorrow's fears
Time for the unseen
Time to make a stand

Do you follow me? No?
Well, it's time to move on and to set our wills free

Fantasy, it's here in me


Big belly butterflies

I want to give you love but it takes some guts to have and hold with empathy
To coil around you tenderly feels like windows open wide, feels cold, fresh breeze
So, then why do tears roll down my cheeks, flow and flood the temple of my body's flesh and bones?

My body's flesh and bones
My body's flesh and bones

I want to give you more than I ever have
Somehow this is not my curse
The air, too thin, too many times recycled feels my big belly butterflies, feeds, grows too, wild
Do you want to see me cry?
Yeah, head bent, on my knees? No!
You know I have to let you know that I have to let you go

Sixteen rifts inside of me, inside this solid tube, inside is solitude, inside this solid tube...

Oh hopefully truth will make me free
Fly, you big belly butter, big jelly-belly butterflies

Is solitude
Inside they do
Inside too

My body's flesh and bones
My body's flesh and bones
Free


Kiss of spring

We set our sails and the sorrows passed us by like cherry-trees with
their blossoms all floating through the air

We made a wish while the angels boogalooed around the trees with the
blossoms encircling their hair

My first kiss - joy and bliss
Yes, we should
Touch the flame - Is it sane?
Yes, we should

We set our sails and the shadows stuck ashore like wooden piers
But the blossoms were floating through the air

We kissed the lake while the angels waved and cheered
And so it seemed that the blossoms made garlands in their hair

Oh, my baby - two makes three
Yes, we should
Is it true? - Is it me you woo?
Yes, we should
Yes, we should, should

Oh, tickle, little, tickle, little, tickle, little sire
Hottentotts and motmots will guide 'ya to the dragon and his sapphires

Oh, tickle, little, tickle, little, tickle, little winner
All of us have been a champion swimmer
5, 6, 7 ate 9 for dinner

Oh, my baby - two makes three
Yes, we should
Is it true? - Is it me you woo?
Yes, we should
Yes, we should, should
Into the air...
And the blossoms were floating through the air

The magic box II

Fly, fly fly with the gale to where the four winds blow
Rise and rise until you've found it

If man got no hopes, then man got no love

Please Mr. Sage, keeper of dreams
Is it somewhere beyond the last sea?
Say it is so and bring it to me

Iconized, though slightly slouched he.

Images


It took some time before it entered my mind,
Before it did, I was fine, I was o.k.
It took some time but when it did cross my mind,
I thought my head was about to detonate.
Images of baby turtles in a commotion
Cracking their eggs and shuffling around in the sand.
Trying desperately to find their way to the ocean
In time before the big birds catch them.

It took some time before it entered my mind, before,
I kind of was blind, I didn't see.
It took some time but when it did cross my mind,
It felt like something inside me was set free.
Images of levitating frogs in motion high up above in enormous magnetic fields.
Images of fishes hopping up from the ocean.

Images of...

In time, in time, in time, it will most surely be time.
Images of psychedelic rats in a fountain which I just passed about two hours ago.
Some of them with different luminous starmaps on, one was transparent and indigo.
Images of army snails down under the ocean fighting their way by eating up monstergrass.
Wonder if they do or do not take any notion?

Images of...

In time...in time, in time, in time, in time, in time, in time,
In time, in time, in time, in time, in time, it will surely be time...

All I want to do

Who said that one must treasure well good memories

When good memories are those to bring me down.
And it's all because of you for after all this time still being on my mind.
Cause all I want to do is being close to you.
To hold you by the hand and make you understand.
So another winter's here again...
Frosty windows are blocking my view.
I have refurnished for the umpteenth time.
Oh, but all I want to do is being close to you.
To hold you by the hand and make you understand.
Oh, were losing so much time...
Youre always on my mind.
No, I cannot see this through.
I long so much for you.
My heart gets broken every little now and then...
Why, tell me why, wonder why, tell me why I, you and I, you and I said goodbye.

Cause all I want to do is being close to you.
To hold you by the hand and make you understand.
Were losing so much time...
Youre always on my mind.
Oh, my days are pretty blue.
I need to be with you... that's all I want to do...

Spacejunk

Hey, are you ready?

Were leaving now, were checking out.
Hey, are you coming?
Were ready for departure.
This ship is moving.
Well, the engine is just warming up.
Feels like were moving.
Son run, run aim and jump.
Were looking for spacejunk.
Yeah, chips & bits.
Weve been up north before, so now were heading east.
East is where it started.
Yeah, east is where is all began.
East is the rising sun, the starting point where all things join.
Diddeli-didnt, didnt I surf across the open sky over hills
And high above rivers deep out on the countryside?

Diddeli-didnt, didnt I feel the ultraviolet vibe high and low and all, all over me?
Ooh, di-da-di-da it is a spiral sky.
It circles up so high. Up to the point where im radiating from the UVs,
Im radiating from the UVs.
Were looking for spacejunk.
Yeah, chips & bits.
Weve been up north before, so now were heading east.
East is where it started.
Yeah, east is where is all began.
East is the rising sun, the starting point where all things join.
Diddeli-didnt, didnt I surf across the open sky over hills
And high above valleys low out to the urban sites?
Diddeli-didnt, didnt I steer the mighty Dragon Fly?
Got my pockets plenty with wicked spacejunk, yeah.
Diddeli-didnt, didnt I surf across the open sky over hills

And high above rivers deep out on the countryside?
Diddeli-didnt, didnt I feel the ultraviolet vibe high and low and all, all over me?
Oh, mighty, mighty Dragon Fly.
Got my pockets plenty with wicked spacejunk, yeah.



Idly I de-ice

Behind a misty garden gate,
A place not drawn on any map,
Where barefeet angels dare not tread,

I have found myself sometimes.
You were the one to guide me out of there.
As you held my hand a thorny bush scratched your face.
The night was old and we were running fast.
I was only feeling so odd and very uptight (in deepest emotions of...).
Someone glued a tear in the corner of my eye (I cried, I cried).
Oh, who took a part in 99% of me?
I lost my will, it drowned inside a pool of dark and bitter miseries.
Inside the garden I kneeled down and prayed (in deepest emotions of...).
Inside the garden I bowed to fate (I bowed, I bowed).
Love for life is simply the only thing I live for (in deepest emotions of...).
Being left without it, I could no more endure(I tried, I tried).
I was only feeling so odd and very uptight (in deepest emotions of...).
Now the days are shifting and idly I de-ice (idly de-ice). Idly...

Rush

Through the night the dark blue men came far across the starry sea,
>From Foreverland to Eternity.

Rushed, rushed, rushed to the hill.
There they would engrave the Oracle up on the hill that
Oh, we are the resurrected and how we are, we are.
We are... Rush, rush, rush to the hill.

Bring the children.
Bring their mothers.
Bring the cattle.
Bring the water.

Rush, hurry now, hurry now up the hill.
Now! Far-descending guests,
Let us wander, wander up on the blue mountain.


Bring the babies.
Bring the homeless.
Bring your treasures.
Bring your lovers.

Rush and see it written there that how we are, we are.
We are... Rush, rush, rush to the hill.
Rush, rush, rush to the hill.

Do you understand me?
Do you understand me now?
Rush!

The dinosaur-Slipper-Man

The dinosaur-slipper-man does the very best he can

To make a living out if what he does.
Hes selling dinosaur-slippers and dinosaur-ties.
Well, then it happened one night, the stars shone bright.
He knew exactly what he had to do.
And then nobody has seen him
Since he walked through that door and disappeared out in the blue.

Did he go now to see them again?
Did he go now to be with them, and if he did, will he come back again?
If he wont, will we know where he went?
Did he go now to see them again?
Did he go now to be with them, and if he did, will he come back again?
If he wont, do you know where he went?
The dinosaur-slipper-man has concealed his masterplan inside a Power PC CPU.

It has something to do with that hes met someone else on a cyberspace rendez-vous.
And so it happened that night, the stars shone bright.
He knew exactly when to flee.
He must have said to his baby; stationary baby:
You must cover up for me.
Did he go now to see them again?
Did he go now to be with them, and if he did, will he come back again?
If he wont, will we know where he went?
Did he go now to see them again?
Did he go now to be with them, and if he did, will he come back again?
If he wont, do you know where he went?

Hearts Unite

You rule my dreams.

You rule my world.
You rule my every thought.
But for a lifetimes savings I still can not buy your love.
I just want everything.
I just want everyone to see me happy and safe in your arms.
Instead I guess I have to wait.
Guess I have to wait until our hearts unite, until you redecide.
Ill live my life, Ill do my best.
The very best I can.
And no one has the right to tell me where on how or when.
Be my delight tonight.
Step out into the light.
Dont make me wander about in distress.
Tonight is the night when the stars are gonna give you my caress.
Theyll make our hearts unite.

Theyll make you redecide.
Thats when you hearts unite.
Thats when we syncronize.
Until our hearts unite, until you redecide.
Until out heats unite, ooh, until we syncronize.

Sun

Even if I am tempted I wont apologize to you.

Those torn-out pages in my agenda are a few too many.
Ive started to count backwards and now
Im almost halfway through, but I fear that I never will get to zero.

So, now I say Oh, won't the sun rise over me.
All I say is; Oh, wont the sun....
Even if I am tempted, I wont apologize to you.
Youve got some tender arms to enfold you and still youre spiteful.
My soul is far from redemption,
I must submit to what Ive done and its to late for me now to beg for mercy.
In that moment when I die, long before my heart decides to,
Will I be whiped-out, erased?

No, you will never see me surrender,
Im gonna keep my head held high and I know now in whom I can trust; nobody.
So, now I say; Oh, wont the sun rise over me.

All I say is; Oh, wont the sun...
All im saying is; Oh, wont the sun rise just for me.
All Im begging is... It got visual, didnt it?
It gets visible, well doesnt it?
It gets much too much, doesnt it?
And, so it has to end.

Here, in shadow

I drift away



Heaven

So inaccessable.

Who blew the torch out?
Who blew the torch out?
The young man cast adrift across the lit ocean to see the one he loved.

And so it was that heaven raged.
He crashed against the reckless waves as the thunder cracked...
Oh, who blew?
Now she stands there on the shore in quiet torment.
She knows... You...my endless horizon. For it must bee that heaven will join us.
Oh angel, wont you rescue him?
Its way to dark for him to swim.
Wont you take him to me, wont you?
Now she stands there all alone.
Her eyes stare way out into the blue.
You...my endless horizon.
So let it be that heaven will join us one day.


Dorothy's Victory

Foolish ship

The winter came too soon this year
A white ship in the harbour
Had suddenly sailed in one night without a soul to notice
Once i would rest my blissful eyes upon a pale horizon
Now i`m just lying hiding patiently
Behind this ghostly monsterous ship
Foolish me not to 
See we could
Believe it would 
Know we could 
Know we should
And when i dream i dream of you
You smile my way you take my hand
Ant then we walk into the blue
And i can breathe again
My sister`s lent me her blue dress
She says it looks good on me
It`s hard to give in to such tenderness
When the darkness clouds your heart
And so they say it`s new years eve again
The sky explodes with colours
You are the only one i love
I wonder who is kissing you tonight
And when i dance i dance alone
But i pretend you`re by my side
We dance the last waltz of the world
And i can finally breathe again
Thats how it feels when the tiger is loose
That`s how it feels again thats how it fells again
To see we could 
Believe it would
Know we could 
Know we should
The winter came too soon this year
A white ship in the harbour 
Had suddenly sailed in one night
Without a soul to notice

You rock my world tonight

I couldn`t get myself to sleep last night
Oh, how much i longed to have you by my side
I couldn`t get myself to sleep 
Iwas wide awake dreaming
Cause i had ssen you here the other day
Ever since that moment i`ve been blown away
I gotta get my lover back gotta reach out for my soul mate
I see you i see you i see you babe
I see you i see you i see you babe you rock my world tonight

You win and grab your coat and off you go
And i have never in my life loved so entirely
Oh oh i see you i seee you i see you babe
You rock my world tonight
I see you babe, you rock my world all right
I couldn\t get myself to sleep last night 
Oh, how much i longed to have you by myt side

Disappear club 5

First thing i woke up and out my bare feet on the floor
Shuffled away to the bathroom and opend the door
Thenb checked my voice mail, got dressed and drove in to the day
Remembering i was running away from a place thet i knew
Remembering i was trying to remember why
Honey i`ts not enough i`ve checked it out 
It`s disappear club 5, or what?
I peeped into your file of fackts i saw it in your book
Workday as usual with meetings and conference calls
An assistant of mine gave me looks i have not seen before
I then took the elevator and out on the streets 
Cars cept on passing me 
Merging and blastering off into the night
Noticed a sign saying disappear here once again
Honey it`s not enough i`ve checked it out
It`s disappear club 5 or what
I peeped into your file of facts i saw it in your book
Honey it`s not enough i`ve checked it out
The password`s "gemini" or what?
I paeeped it`s true and that`s a fackt
t as bad as it looks
Remembering how it was to escape from a place thet i knew
Remembering i was trying to remember why
Hioney it`s not enough i\ve checked it out
It`s disappear club 5, or what?
I peeped into your file of facts i saw it in your book
Honey it`s not enough i checked it out

It`s as bad as it looks
As bad as bad as it looks 
As bad as it looks
Remember why...

 Corals, jade and pearls

 I have decided to let go I cannot change the things I know
I have decided to give in like theat I cannot loose nor win
I learnt my lesson well to speak but never tell
About the things i know they know so well
Consigned it to the grave hid it from the day
It has a new deep sense to me just like a new technology
It has a new deep sense everywhere I see
And in the deepest of the night
I saw a glimpse of paradise glimpse of paradise
I learnt my lesson well to speak but never tell
About the things I know you know so well
Corals, jades and pearls are the treasures of this world
Treasures of this world
It has a new deep sense to me: my new delicious vacancy
It has a new immense sensuality
And in the deepest of the nights I looked into his angeleyes
It has a new deep sense to me just like a new technology
It has a new deep sense everywhere I see
And when I looked into his eyes
I saw a glimpse of paradise glimpse of paradise
Oh, my heart

Tierre Obeletz - Jacob's lullaby ( Part 2 )

Even the strong get humble at heart,
Even so the wisdom we greet has sprung from the feeblest seed
Dream of this spark in you
I'd want you to
Crush any doubt with a one last embrace

If your world should crumble to sand,
And the storms sweeps it out of your hands
We brave, don't fall apart

Ooh, it's here again
Is this the moment, when...

Sleep while the snow turns silvery blue
Take a little sip from the moonlit water that twinkles in you
Nothing in the world can harm
Such radiant charm
Navigate by means of the signs in the stars

They will follow you back to the sea
They will follow you back to me
When I am dead and gone

Ooh, it's here again
This is the moment, when...
Still there are words I have never said,
Still there is so much unsaid

Even the strong get humble at heart
Even so the firmest belief has sprung from the feeblest seed
Realize this spark in you, I'd want you to
Navigate by means of the signs in the stars

They will follow you back to the sea,
They will follow you back to me
To our heart

These are the things I could never tell,
Somehow he knew them too well

Oskorei

It was a game.
Flashback from my unknown past.

As this happened
Will it happen
Was it only in my dream?

Wanting,
Needing,
Something that may be real

Live my life
'Til I die,
Although we may never meet

Have I known you?
Will I know you?
Are you everything I seek?

Needing,
Wanting,
Something I cannot reach

Live my life
'Til I die,
Although we may never meet.

'Cause there you are
And here am I
In my oskorei

Flashback from my unknown past...
