The pioneering force behind the rise of trip-hop, Massive Attack were among the most innovative and influential groups of their generation; their hypnotic sound — a darkly sensual and cinematic fusion of hip-hop rhythms, soulful melodies, dub grooves, and choice samples — set the pace for much of the dance music to emerge throughout the 1990s, paving the way for such acclaimed artists as Portishead, Sneaker Pimps, Beth Orton, and Tricky, himself a Massive Attack alumnus. Their history dates back to 1983 and the formation of the Wild Bunch, one of the earliest and most successful sound-system/DJ collectives to arrive on the U.K. music scene; renowned for their seamless integration of a wide range of musical styles, from punk to reggae to R&B, the group's parties quickly became can't-miss events for the Bristol club crowd, and at the peak of their popularity they drew crowds so enormous that the local live music scene essentially ground to a halt. When the Wild Bunch folded during the mid-'80s, two of its members — Andrew "Mushroom" Vowles and Grant "Daddy G" Marshall — teamed with local graffiti artist 3D (born Robert del Naja) to form Massive Attack in 1987; another Wild Bunch alum, Nellee Hooper, split his time between the new group and his other project, Soul II Soul. The group's first single, "Daydreaming," appeared in 1990; it featured the sultry vocals of singer Shara Nelson and raps by Tricky, another onetime Wild Bunch collaborator. The classic "Unfinished Sympathy" followed, as did another compelling effort, "Safe From Harm." Finally, in 1991 Massive Attack issued their debut LP, Blue Lines; while by no means a huge commercial success, the record was met with major critical praise, and was dubbed an instant classic in many quarters. Nelson, featured on many of the album's most memorable tracks, exited for a solo career soon after, and the group then confusingly changed their name to simply "Massive" to avoid any implication of approval for the U.N.'s policy towards Iraq; in the wake of the disastrous U.S. tour that followed, many were quick to write the band off right then and there.

After a three-year layoff, Massive Attack — their full name now properly reinstated — resurfaced with Protection; again working with Hooper and Tricky, they also brought into the fold vocalist Nicolette, as well as Everything but the Girl's Tracey Thorn. Three singles — "Karmacoma," "Sly," and the title track — were released from the LP, which was also remixed in its entirety by Mad Professor and issued as No Protection. A lengthy tour followed, and over the next several years, Massive Attack's solo work was primarily confined to remixes for artists including Garbage; they also worked with Madonna on a track for a Marvin Gaye tribute album. Finally, to promote their appearance at the annual Glastonbury music festival, the group issued a new EP, Risingson, during the summer of 1997. The third full-length Massive Attack effort, Mezzanine, appeared in mid-1998; in addition to reggae singer Horace Andy, making his third consecutive LP appearance with the group, vocal chores were handled by the Cocteau Twins' Elizabeth Fraser and newcomer Sara Jay. Mezzanine became a cult hit among critics, clubs, and the college crowds, spinning successful singles such as "Teardrop" and "Inertia Creeps." A tour of America and Europe followed, but Vowles left the band after disagreeing with the artistic direction of Mezzanine. Del Naja and Marshall continued as a duo, later working with the likes of David Bowie and the Dandy Warhols, but Marshall later took a leave of absence to raise his family; producer Neil Davidge took up the slack. In February 2003, after a five-year wait, Massive Attack released their fourth album, 100th Window, including collaborations with mainstay Horace Andy as well as Sinéad O'Connor. Danny the Dog from 2004 marked the group's entry into the world of soundtracks.

Safe From Harm

Shara Nelson
Midnight ronkers
City slickers
Gunmen and maniacs
All will feature on the freakshow
And I can't do nothing 'bout that, no
But if you hurt what's mine
I'll sure as hell retaliate

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight

3d
I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin' back at me
To see me lookin' back at you

Shara Nelson
Lucky dippers
Crazy chancers
Seems to be moving fast
What happened to the nicities
Of my childhood days
Well i can't do nothing 'bout that, no
But if you hurt what's mine
I'll sure as hell retaliate

3d
I was lookin' back to see if you were
I was lookin I was
I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin' back at me
To see me lookin' back at you

Shara Nelson
You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight

3d
Terreous Infectious and Dangerous
Friends and enemies will find it's contagerous
And they're spreading through your system like a virus
Yes the trouble in the end it makes you anxious

I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin back at me
To see me lookin back at you

I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin back at me
To see me lookin back at you

Shara Nelson

But if you hurt what's mine
I'll sure as hell retaliate
You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight (x2)

One Love

Horace Andy

It's you I love and not another
And I know our love will last forever
You I love and not another
And I know we'll always be together
Some men have one love, two and three love
Four and five and six love
But I believe in one love
I believe in one love

Some men don't feel secure
Unless they have a woman on each arm
They have to play the field, prove they have charm
They say don't lay your eggs in one basket
If the basket should fall all your eggs'll be broken
But I believe in one love
I believe in one love
Oh girl I believe in one love
I believe in one love
Oh girl it's not the everyday you find the woman of your dreams
Who will always be there no matter how bad things seems
Ever so faithful ever so sure
No man could ever ask for more
I believe in 1 love
I believe in one love, oh girl
I believe in one love
I believe, girl, oh yeah
In one love, in one love
In one love, in one love
I do, I do, I do
In one love
I do
In one love
I believe in one love, in one love.

Blue Lines

Tricky
Can't be with the one you love then love the one you're with
Spliff in the ashtray, red stripe I pull the lid
Her touch tickles, especially when she's gentle
But I don't hear her words 'cause I slide the instrumental
Keep the girl in the distance, moves are very hazy
No sunshine in my life the way I deal is shady

3D
Skip hip data to get the anti-matter
Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter
To the sound of silence surrounded by the mass
Her face is on the paper not the strangers that I pass
The ones that looking back to see if they are looking back at me

Daddy G
Are you predator or do you fear me

3D
Yeah while I'm doing this I know
The place I really wanna go
The one I love but never gets near me

Tricky
It's a beautiful day, well it seems as such
Beautiful thoughts means I dream too much
Even if I told you, you still would not know me
Tricky never does, adrian mostly gets lonely
How we live in this existence, just being
English upbringing, background carribean

3D
It's the way that we ?bility?
Sharing a soliloquy
We cut the broken thread from flexibility
Mi chiamo 3D si sono Inglese
No sunshine in my life 'cause the way I deal is hazy
And everyday's a daisy 'cause I'm on my toes
While contemporaries of mine remaining comatose

Tricky
There's a looking glass she's looking through
She hated me, but then she loved me too
I'd lie not try so I lost faith
Then turn to her to keep the faith
She told me take an occupation or you lose your mind
And on a nine to five lemon, looking for the lime

3D
Box clever, watch your system come together
Crazy weather at the end of my tether

Daddy G
Massive in the area, murderer
Attack inna the area, murderer

3D
Some go softly softly round the habitat
Ratchet in the right hand
They got no one to stab it at
Take a walk billy, don't be a hero
Effort's on minimal though almost touch zero
Excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
To wander lonely as a puzzled anagram

Car paint blue, green, primer and zinc
Take it to extremities my purple and pink
I feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
I can't stand the drops they're dripping down my windowpane
They wash away my shadow and don't even leave a spark upon my soul
They leave the rainbows in the dark

Tricky
Blues get big, massive are even larger
Save nuff space into the tricky tardis
We'd trawl what I saw from down in darren's hall
People laying their claim
In stormy weather it's rain

3D
But you're living on a see-saw

Tricky
I try to see more

3D
Somebody da-ditty, nobody
Walking on sunshine, but still we're treading water
The son of many reasons searching for the daughter
Seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
Silver papers of the sound within my budakon headset
The solar system watches in wisdom
The children dance as the moonlight kissed them

Tricky
To Massive attack Matt Black appear wearing beads
Two hours traveling so I wrote this on repeat
Always living fast, people getting jumpy
Where on ?gruggy? falls I do the walter crumpy
Microphones held close, crouching far apart
Take my piece of mind and sign my name across your heart

Be Thankful for What You've Got

Tony Bryan

Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the gangster lean
For what you've got

You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin' the scene
With the gangster lean ooh ooh ooh
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you've got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the Gangster lean

Five Man Army

Daddy G
Trendy wendys you know what i mean
Hangin' around with girl who's rolling up her jeans
She watches her street cred 'cause she's no dummy
Saw rockin the microphone and now she's calling me a honey
Says I know what I want don't move with thugs
We're house parties hip hop and smoking drugs
And whoever's been the boss she's down with 'em
She's always on time 'cause the girl got rhythm
To avoid all complications i'll give some information
About a certain location under Paddington Station
'Cause when I host my show-a I avoid the girl called lola
Who's more pu-pu-public than the drink they call it coca cola
I’m just practice posing face is shaded in black
Is dominating as my color the massive attack
Right now i hit it kick it flow smooth hit middle wicket

Tricky
I take a small step now it's a giant stride
People say I'm loud why should I hide
Only had a small taste so what a waste
I quietly observe though it's not my space
Bottom end's heavy you know we're never even
People call me Tricky for particular reason
I've got you see and I've got to let you know
See we're rockin' in your area rock beneath your balcony
My baby just cares for me well that's funny
Her touch tickles especially on my tummy

Daddy G
Now who's got the microphone

Tricky
Now who's honey

Daddy G
A turbo turbo and chant with a charge
Addy, Daddy G wild bunch crew at large
Don't call me an officer just call me a sarge
Mashing up the country planning also abroad
Plan to go to America when I get a visa card

Tricky
But gettin' a visa card nowadays isn't hard

Daddy G
So keep your ears glued listen to every chord
Tokyo city's one place that we toured
Four technic plus two mixer board
Sharper than a Wilkinson razor sword

3D
When I was a child I played subbuteo on
My table then I graduate to studio one
’Cos D’s my nom de plume you know but 3’s my pseudonym
And around my neck you know I wear the sony budokan
Indigo blues you got me in my own shoes
The people dancing in the shape for what they make
They can't lose
Yes waxing lyrical but this time it's not satirical
It's kinda spherical so jam me in a circle
This is the miracle of the dubplate dub selection

Daddy G
So whether you're black white or half-caste in your complection

3D
Yes pull out your phono plug and tuck you in your phony
It's started by marconi resumed by sony
A summary by wireless history and only
The massive attack enorme esplosione

Horace Andy
Get away with your Cuss Cuss
We don't want it
Get away with your Cuss Cuss
We don't like it
Eternal love eternal love
Money money money
Root of all evil
Money money money
Root of all evil

Unfinished Sympathy

Shara Nelson

I know that i've been mad in love before
And how it could be with you
Really hurt me baby, really hurt me baby
How can have a day without a night
You're the book that I have opened
And now i've got to know much more

The curiousness of your potential kiss
Has got my mind and body aching
Really hurt me baby, really cut me baby
How can you have a day without a night
You're the book that I have opened
And now I've got to know much more

Like a soul without a mind
In a body without a heart
I'm missing every part
(x5)

Daydreaming

Shara Nelson
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming

3D
Way that we say 'em in style that we write 'em in
Massive attack we keep it strong just like a vitamin
Going for the positive wiping out the negative songs
'Cause brother it's relative
The pass is picking up all the lyrics on the dance floor
That raise your spirit level 'cause it demands for

Tricky
Attitude is cool degrees below zero
Up against the wall behaving like De Niro
Tricky's performing taking his phono
Making a stand with a tan touch it like cocoa
Smooth to keep you moving at the back now
Free is the needle it's moving through the track now

3D
Dance to the drummer's beats we need new sticks
Bounce around the vibes like acoustics
No drugs or pharmaceuticals for the body ain't suitable
Stick with liquid me and trick we've drop
A paper which you use my tongue to lick with

Tricky
Trouble and strife ain't no sunshine in my life
Wiseguys get protection when they carry a knife
They shouldn't have been born they're making me yawn
But I just take it easy it's a sunday morn'

3D
So you come on light my fire and
Together we'll grow forever watch my eight kay rig go

Daddy G
Because my eight kay rig goes boom boom
My eight kay rig goes boom

3D
Yeah rhymin' the jam and uh we got the stamina
In case you never know us if we don't give a damn and uh
And it's hard to handle keep your distance
Resist and the posse gets the pleasure of this dance
The cool breeze that you welcome in the heat
You don't see it but you feel it when it's blowing on the street

Tricky
If i was a rich man

Daddy G
Da da dada

Tricky
I quietly observe standing in my space
It's the devious days they call the rat race
It's a concrete jungle, evil in the town
Weebles, wobble, occasional squabble
But what happen when the bomb drops
Down


3D

Don't make sound
'Cause the dancefloor's a desert
And the dancers are parched
Do a rain dance and your brain's still marsh
My heavy my brother get lighter than helium
Float above the world to break the tedium
Living in my headphones sony's what I say to 'em
The surreal boom of the budokan stadium

Shara Nelson
Well i'm floating on air when i'm daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space

Tricky
Well i'm tricky kid don't deal with sadness
Can't be with the one i love i love the one that i miss
I'm very down to earth but brain sits on top floor
Don't need another lover just need, i'm insecure

3D
The weather is a-changin' the storms be shakin
The love that you take is equal to the love you're makin
Here comes the sun little darlin here comes the sun
It's alright

Tricky
Yes tricky kid i check my situation
Maggie this Maggie that Maggie means inflation
Hip-hop you don't stop cause i'm not sloppy
I like the beat so we need another copy

3D
We're natives of the massive territory and we're proud
Get peaceful in the dance, adapt the glory and the crowd
The problem ain't a different kind of skin tricks
I love my neighbor I don't wait for the olympics
See you go hooligan you're trying to play the fool again

Tricky
Caught you in the lost and found


3D

When your posse weren't around

Tricky
No crowd


3D

So you're going for you tool again

Lately

Shara Nelson

Summertime always gives me the blues
Thinking about the things we used to do
Watching lovers in the park making love so free
And now i realize there's only me

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong
(x2)

You been acting like a cat on a hot tin roof
Something's on your mind that you can't share
You never used to hide your feelings from me
Keepin secrets i don't understand

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong
(x2)

I used to synchronize it with your body
Making it so tight never letting go
(x2)

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong
Lately, lately, lately, lately
Lately baby, where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Missed your touch, missed your touch

Hymn of the Big Wheel

Horace Andy

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

There's a hole in my soul like a cavity
Seems like the world is out to gather just by gravity
The wheel keeps turning the sky's rearranging
Look my son the weather is changing

I'd like to feel that you could be free
Look up at the blue skies beneath a new tree
Sometime again
You'll turn green and the sea turns red
My son I said the power of axis over my head
The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

We sang about the sun and danced among the trees
And we listened to the whisper of the city on the breeze
Will you cry in the most in a lead-free zone
Down within the shadows where the factories drone
On the surface of the wheel they build another town
And so the green come tumbling down
Yes close your eyes and hold me tight
And i'll show you sunset sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes
As a child's silent prayer my hope hides in disguise
While satellites and cameras watch from the skies
An acid drop of rain recycled from the sea
It washed away my shadow burnt a hole in me
And all the king's men cannot put it back again
But the ghetto sun will nurture life
And mend my soul sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes
(x2)

Protection

Protection

Tracy Thorn

This girl I know needs some shelter
She don't believe anyone can help her
She's doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don't want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can't change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her

I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a boy and i'm a girl
But you know you can lean on me
And I don't have no fear
I'll take on any man here
Who says that's not the way it should be

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

She's a girl and you're a boy
Sometimes you look so small, look so small
You've got a baby of your own
When your baby's gone, she'll be the one
To catch you when you fall

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a girl and i'm a boy (x4)

Sometimes you look so small, need some shelter
Just runnin' round and round, helter skelter
And I've leaned on me for years
Now you can lean on me
And that's more than love, that's the way it should be
Now I can't change the way you feel
But I can put my arms around you
That's just part of the deal
That's the way I feel
I'll put my arms around you

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

I stand in front of you
I'll take the force of the blow
Protection

You're a boy and i'm a girl (x4)

Won’t lie and say this lovin's best
Well leave us in emotional pace
Take a walk, taste the rest
No, take a rest

I see you digging a hole in your neighborhood
You’re crazy but you’re lazy

Your troubles must be seen to see through
Money like it's paper with faces i remember
I drink on a daily basis
Though it Seldom cools my temper
It never cools my temper

You’re a couple, 'specially when your body’s doubled
Duplicate, then you wait for the next kuwait

Don't want to be on top of your list

But for now, emotional ties they stay severed
When there’s trust there’ll be treats
And when we funk we'll hear beats

Three

Nicolette

Three's my lucky number
And fortune comes in threes
But I wish I knew that number
That even little children seem to see
Oh, I'm missing everything I knew
It's just so hard to be a child
Oh, i'm missing all the things i knew
Yet wish i knew nothing at all
I wish i knew nothing at all

Soon i'll have the courage
To leave my thoughts behind
I'll give back all the knowledge
And keep the wisdom precious in my mind

Oh, i'm missing all the things i knew
I miss them yet i want them gone
Yes, i'm missing all the things i knew
Yet wish i knew nothing at all
I wish i knew nothing at all
I wish i knew nothing at all

Spying Glass

Horace Andy

Spy at thy neighbor
Spying glass

You live in the city
You stay by yourself
You a-find all weakness
Still some people they brand you ya
Just because you are rasta
You move to the country
You live in the hills
You evite all company
When you check it them-a use spying glass
They want to know all your business

Spy at thy neighbor
Spying glass
Spy at thy neighbor

You live in the city
You mind your own business
What you see you don't see
But some people they always see
They never mind their own business
You move to the country
You live in the hills
You think you're far from the weak
When you check it them-a use spying glass
They want to know rasta business

Spying Glass!
Spying Glass!
Yeah

Better Things

Tracy Thorn

Don't drag me down
Just because you're down
And just cause you're blue
Don't make me too
And though you've found
You need more than me
Don't talk to me
About being free

That's freedom without love
And magic without love
Magic without love

Hear me say
Better things will surely come our way
Hear me say
Better things will surely come our way

You say the magic's gone
Well i'm not a magician
You say the spark's gone
Well get an electrician
And save your line about needing to be free
All that's bullshit babe
You just want rid of me

You want freedom without love
And magic without love
Magic without love
Yeah

Hear me say
Better things will surely come my way
Hear me say
Better things will surely come my way

Eurochild

3D
Sitting in my day care, the art is decopainted
Blessed by the drink
Upon the corner's where we've seen it
Chased by the plaintiff
Haunted by the medium
Too high to flow toward to break the tedium
Glow from my tv set was blue like neon
Activated the remote I put the BBC on
I've seen this city somewhere
I'm looking out for no-one
Pallor in my eye it get blue like neon

Tricky
Hell is round the corner where i shelter
Isms and schisms we're living on a skelter
If you believe i'll deceive then common sense says shall you receive
Let me take you down the corridors of my life
And when you walk, do you walk to your preference
No need to answer till i take further evidence
I seem to need a reference to get residence
A reference to your preference to say i'm a good neighbour
I trudge so judge me for my labour
I walk in a bar and immediately I sense danger
You look at me, girl, as if i was some kind of a
A total stranger


3D
Hysterical, ecstatical no matter, call me stags(?)
Hard to get a drink or a girl to relax
Upon phono, no go zone i go through
Aching awaits just to relocate you
Kill us with your fist
Now baby mix it with me
You see me function better when i get approximately
High by my technical flyby
I function better with the sun in my eyes
So goodbye

Tricky
Take a second of me you beckon i'll be
And when you're sad i'll mourn
And when you tear i'm torn
Take a second of me
Take a second of me
I stand firm for our soil
I lick a rock off foil
So reduce me, seduce me
Dress me up in Stüssy.
Show me and i'll stick em
Will you be my victim
Take a second of me

3D
Mad over you, mad over me, an analogy
Baby tagging up up all of my stationary
Sitting in my daycare, media dego painted
Colliding with the jam
Until the drink got dated
Window indigo when they go boom
I run inside my room
No sense you can trust me
Climb on my sofa
Roll in a daydream
Spliff make daddy go sleep-a-trip dream

Sly

Nicolette

I try to believe what i feel these days
It makes life much easier for me
It's hard to decide what is real these days
When things look so dizzy to me

I already know my children's children's faces
Voices that i've heard before
There's always more
There's always more

Wondering leaving the sea behind
To my home which everybody owns
Wondering, wondering
Where we can do what we please
Wondering

I feel like a thousand years have passed
I'm younger than i used to be
I feel like the world is my home at last
I know everyone that i meet

Somewhere in the music i can hear the bells
I heard a thousand years before
There's always more
There's always more

Wondering is this there all there is
Since i was since I began to be
Wondering, wandering
Where we can do what we please
Wondering

Light My Fire (live)

( Morrison, Krieger, Manzarek, Densmore )

Horace Andy

You know that it would be untrue
You know that i would be a liar
If was to say to you
Girl, we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

The time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire
You know that it would be untrue
You know that i would be a liar
If was to say to you
Girl we couldn't get much higher

Come on baby, light my fire
Come on baby, light my fire
Try to set the night on fire

Try to set the night on fire X4

Angel

Horace Andy :

You are my angel
Come from way above
To bring me love

Her eyes
She's on the dark side
Neutralize
Every man in sight

To love you, love you, love you ...

You are my angel
Come from way above

To love you, love you, love you ...

Risingson

3d

I seen you go down to a cold mirror
It was never clearer in my era so
You lick a shine upon your forehead or
Check it by the signs in the corridor
You light my ways through the club maze
We would struggle through the dub daze

I see myself in there upon my lover
It's how you go down to the men's room sink
Sad we talk of how madmen think
I see myself in there upon my lover
I don't know her from another miss
I don't know you from another
See me run now you're gone...dream on

Daddy G

Why you want to take me to this party and breathe
I'm dying to leave
Every time we grind we know we severed lines
Where have all those flowers gone
Long time passing
Why you keep me testing, keep me tasking
You keep on asking

3d

Toy-like people make me boy-like
Toy-like people make me boy-like
They're invisible, when the trip it flips
They get physical, way below my lips
And everything you got hoi-polloi like
Now you're lost and you're lethal
And now's about the time you gotta leave all
These good people...dream on

Nicer than the bird up in the tree top
Cheaper than the chip inside my lap top
All the variations you could do with me
Nicer than the girl up in a mind you free

Daddy G

Automatic crystal remote control,
They come to move your soul

3d

You're gonna fade into the background
Like a better smoke'll bring you back round
Like a man slide inside you my dear
Your cheap beer's filled with crocodile tears
See 'em run now you're gone...dream on

Toy-like people make me boy-like
Toy-like people make me boy-like

I found a reason
I found a reason

Dream on
Dream on
Dream on

Teardrop

Liz Fraser

Love, love is a verb
Love is a doing word
Feathers on my breath
Gentle impulsion
Shakes me makes me lighter
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

Nine night of matter
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath
Black flowers blossom
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my

Water is my eye
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath
Teardrop on the fire of a confession
Feathers on my breath
Most faithful mirror
Feathers on my breath

Teardrop on the fire
Feathers on my breath

You're stumbling a little
You're stumbling a little

Inertia creeps

3d

Recollect me darling raise me to your lips
Two undernourished egos four rotating hips
Hold on to me tightly I'm a sliding scale
Can't endure then you can't inhale
Clearly
Out of body experience interferes
And dreams of flying I fit nearly
Surrounds me though I get lonely
Slowly

Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
She's moving up slowly
Slowly
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Moving up slowly

In my home no chrome as clear as
See me now with my nearest dearest
Been there when I'm over careering
Room shifting is endearing
Between us is our kitchen
Would you found my irritant's itching
Been here before
Been here forever

Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
Moving up slowly
Inertia creeps
Moving up slowly
Inertia keeps
Moving up slowly
She comes
Moving up slowly
Moving up slowly
She comes moving up slowly
Inertia creeps moving up slowly

She comes
I make no sound in my eidertown
Awake I lie in the morning's blue
Room is still my antenna in you
Nylon burns the bedspread with two
Gravity's zero see me stall
I bounce off walls lose my footing and fall
It can be sweet though incomplete though
And the frames will freeze
See me on all four's
It's been a long time

She comes
She comes
I want to x you
She comes
I want to x you
She comes

I caught your radio waves
I caught your radio waves
Will you take a string
Say you string me along
Say you string me along
Say inertia creeps
Inertia creeps and she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes
Say she comes

Dissolved girl

Sara Jay

Shame, such a shame
I think I kind of lost myself again
Day, yesterday
Really should be leaving but I stay

Say, say my name
I need a little love to ease the pain
I need a little love to ease the pain
It's easy to remember when it came

'Cause it feels like I've been
I've been here before
You are not my savior
But I still don't go

Feels like something
That I've done before
I could fake it
But I still want more

Fade, made to fade
Passion's overrated anyway
Say, say my name
I need a little love to ease the pain
I need a little love to ease the pain
It's easy to remember when it came

'Cause it feels like I've been
I've been here before
You are not my savior
But I still don't go, oh

I feel live something
That I've done before
I could fake it
But I still want more, oh.

Man Next Door

Horace Andy

There is a man that live next door
In my neighborhood
In my neighborhood
And he gets me down...

He gets in so late at night
Always a fuss and fight
Always a fuss and fight
All through the night

I've got to get away from here
This is not a place for me to stay
I've got to take my family
And find a quiet place

Hear the pots and pans they fall
Bang against my wall
Bang against my wall
No rest at all

He gets in so late at night
Always a fuss and fight
Always a fuss and fight
All through the night

I've got to get away from here
This is not a place for me to stay
I've got to take my family
And find a quiet lives

Sunken chapel
Love you for God
Love you for the Mother

Only love

I'm a little curious of you in crowded scenes
And how serene your friends and fiends
We flew and strolled as two eliminated gently
Why don't you close your eyes and reinvent me

Daddy G
You know you've got that heart made of stone
You should have let me know
You could have let me know

3d
We'll go 'till morning comes
And traffic grows
And windows hum

Daddy G
Speding all week with your friends
Give me evenings and weekends
Evenings and weekends

3d
I could be yours
We can unwind
All these half floors
All these half floors

You'd agree it's a typical high
You fly as you watch your name go by
And once the name goes by
Not thicker than water nor thicker than mud
And the eight k thuds it does

Sunset so thickly
Let's make it quiet and quickly
Don't frown
It taste's better on the way back down

I could be yours
We can unwind
All these half floors*
All these half floors
All these half floors
Will lead to mine

We can unwind
All these half floors
All these half floors
Will lead to mine
Will see to
All these half floors
All these half floors
Will see to
All these half floors
Will lead to mine
We can unwind all our flaws
We can unwind all our flaws

* possible variations on 'all these half floors' => Who knows ?!  3D !

A flask I drink of sober tea
While relay cameras monitor me
And the buzz surrounds it does
Buzz surrounds
Buzz surrounds

Liz Fraser
Closed eyed sky wide open
Unlimited girl unlimited sigh
Elsewhere
Indefinitely
Far away
Magnifies and deepens
Ready to sing
My sixth sense peacefully placed on my breath
And listening

Keeps me from my hurt

Liz Fraser
My ears know that my eyes are closed

Perish thoughs like contraband
I train myself in martial arts
As advertised
I reinforce my softened parts

See through me little glazed lane
A world in myself
Ready to sing
My sixth sense peacefully placed on my breath

Flickering I roam

Liz Fraser
And listening
My ears know that my eyes are closed
Ready to sing
My sixth sense peacefully placed on my breath

Flickering I roam

And listening
My ears know that my eyes are closed

I see to bolts
Put keys to locks
No boat are rocked
I'm free to roam
On dummy screens
And magazines

Liz Fraser
Closed eyed sky wide open
Unlimited girl unlimited sigh

3d
To think that I lay next to you
Wasting time when I could do
A simple job in strip lights
A flask I drink a sober tea
'Till daylight sends me home
Flickering I roam

Liz Fraser
Daydreaming admiring being
Quietly, open the world
I hear the time of the starry sky
Turning over at midnight
Seen through me little glazed lane
A world in myself
Daydreaming admiring being
Quietly, open the world
I hear the time of the starry sky
Turning over at midnight

Horace Andy

Yeah yeah yeah ah
You see a man's face
But you don't see his heart
You see a man's face
But you will never know his thoughts

Everywhere you go
There's a man to say love
Never neither never neither
Take it to heart

For your heart is your heart
And your thoughts is your thoughts
Never mix love with hatred

You see a man's face
You will never see his heart
You see a man's face
But you will never know his thoughts
You see a man's face
You will never know his thoughts
You see a man's face

Future proof

3D :

Borderline cases
Reinforced glass
Absent friends
Passport photos
An elastic past
Empty pocket
They think it is all...
They think it’s soul
All wrapped up on a swollen lip
He draws the warm pipe.

Chemicals
Chemicals captured in winter's grip
Turn us on

Seperate the leper
Hungry ghosts
Hungry ghosts
Another imprint
In borrowed clothes
We can be numb
We can be numb
Passing through

Blow blow blow blow

Borderline case
Future proof
Real thin air
Real thin air
Real thin air

What your soul sings

Sinead O'Connor :

Don’t be afraid
Open your mouth and say
Say what your soul sings to you

Your mind can never change
Unless you ask it to
Lovingly re-arrange
The thoughts that make you blue
The things that bring you down
Only do harm to you
And so make your choice joy
The joy belongs to you

And when you do
You'll find the one you love is you
You'll find you
Love you

Don’t be ashamed no
To open your heart and pray
Say what your soul sings to you

So no longer pretend
That you can’t feel it near
That tickle on your hand
That tingle in your ear
Oh ask it anything
Because it loves you dear
It’s your most precious king
If only you could hear

And when you do
You’ll find the one you need is you
You’ll find you
Love you

Everything
You think you know
You think you know

Special cases

Sinead O'Connor :

Don’t tell your man what he don’t do right
Nor tell him all the things that make you cry
But check yourself for your own shit
And don’t be making out like it’s all his

Take a look around the world
You see such bad things happening
There are many good men
Ask yourself is he one of them

The deadliest of sin is pride
Make you feel like you’re always right
But they’re always two sides
It takes two to make love, two to make a life

Take a look around the world
You see such mad things happening
There are few good men
Thank your lucky stars that he’s one of them

Butterfly caught

Weightless falls honeysuckle
Strangers (strange this)
Lights from pages
Paper thin thing

Protected by the naked eye
Pearly sunrise

Nearly worn
Kneeling like a supplicant
Darkened skin
Afraid to see
Radiate
Open lips
Keep smiling for me
Darkened skin
Afraid to see
Radiate
Open lips
Keep smiling for me

Weightless cool honeysuckle
Fair skin freckles
Uncut teeth
Tranquill eyes
Bite my lips
Bite my lips
Shhh
Under your feet

A prayer for England

Sinead O'Connor :

In the name of
And by the power of
The holy spirit
May we invoke your
Intercession for
The children of england
Some of whom have seen
Murder so obscene
Some of whom have been taken

Let not another child be slain
Let not another search be made in vain

Jah forgive us
For forgetting
Jah help us
We need more loving
See the teachers
Are representing you
So badly
That not many can see you

Let not another child be slain
Let not another search be made in vain

Jah calls the ones who’s
Beliefs kill children to
Feel the love of you and be healed
And may we all cry too
For representing you
So badly so badly

Jah forgive us
For forgetting
Oh Jah help us
To be forgiving
The teachers are representing you
So badly that not many can see you

Let not another search be made in vain
Let not another child be slain

Small time shot away

3D :

Took her in
Dropped a line
Turned me on
(I travel I travel)
We never leave each other 'cause we leave each other so cold
Makes it melt away

The easy part is taking yourself in
It’s wartime every time
Shot away

Wipe the smile from your face
It’s getting in the way
It’s wartime every time
She cut me a line and she turned me on
She made it cool
You couldn’t do it if you wanted to
(Believe me believe me)

It’s wartime every time
Small talk every time
It’s my favourite chloroform
It’s pill talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Shot away

Ricochet
We're like identical twins
Sucking on the same teat
Spitting out the same things
(I travel far, I travel far)
It’s wartime every time
Small talk every time
It’s my favourite chloroform
It’s pillow talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Ricochet

Line’em up and knock’em down
Shot away
A shot away
A shot away
A shot away

Pray for Rain

( Vocal : Tunde Adebimpe )

In deepest hollows of our minds
A system failure left behind

And their necks crane
As they turn to pray for rain
And their necks crane

Dull residue of what once was
A shattered cloud of swirling doves

And their eyes change
As they learn to see through flames
And their necks crane
As they turn to pray for rain

And their eyes change
As they learn to see through flames
And their necks crane
As they turn to pray for rain

Drops on rocks fall fast and fleeting
Hearts and wings commence to beating
What’s unseen with all believing
Vision walls fall all receding

Vision walls fall all receding
Drops on rocks come fast and fleeting
Rhythm laws unleash the meaning
Usher us into the dreaming

Vision walls fall all receding
Hearts and wings commence to beating
All unending, all completing

Vision walls fall fast and fleeting
Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing
Vision walls fall all revealing

In deepest hollows of our minds
A system failure left behind
Dull residue of what once was
A shattered cloud of swirling doves

And their eyes change
As they learn to see through flames
And their necks crane
As they pray for rain

Babel

( Vocals : Martina Topley-Bird )

Say, what's on paper
Said it was my Babel
It was my Babel
Tell it in your paper

Now you know it's over
Rolling off her shoulder
You can take a ladder to the shadows and forget
Was it how she kissed you
And then dismissed you
Was it purposeful and was it just to hook you in

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, racing
Breaking it till you're lost in I
Well you lost your girlfriend
You was not knowing
Where you were going
You were on your own

He was quick to burning
He was slow to learning
'Cause his eyes were misted
He still kissed her when she cried
And did your best to please her
And didn't up and leave her
You defended the harsh way it ended now sleep tight

Hallucinating, chasing, changing, pacing, gracing
Breaking if you're lost in I
???
???
I will curve in love

You wanna be the one that shoots that truth I'm not dead
I'm running so far out of my head
This sprain of heart that ripples my day
You can never sail by thinking - again - away

Splitting the atom

( Vocals : 3D, Daddy G & Horace Andy )

The bed it was warm
Nettles and ferns
The evening it chokes
The candle it burns
This disguise covers bitter lies
Repeating the joke
The meaning it dies

Pass me your coat
I'm not afraid to leave
I'm letting you know
I know what you need
I'll turn you around
This beautiful town
And then you'll believe
When your eyes they deceive you

It’s easy, don’t let it go
It’s easy, don’t let it go
It’s easy, don’t let it go
Don't lose it

It’s getting colder outside
Your rented space
They shadow box
And they paper chase
It never stops
And we'll never learn
No hope without dope
The jobless return

The bankers have bailed
The mighty retreat
The pleasure it fails
At the end of the week
You take it or leave
Or what you receive
Till what you receive
Is eternity leave

It’s easy, don’t let it go
It’s easy, don’t let it go
It’s easy, don’t let it go
Don't lose it

Incandescent light adores
In adolescent menopause
In little clicks you got the music stops
The needle sticks and the penny drops

The summer's gone before you know
The muffled drums of relentless flow
You're looking at stars that give you vertigo
Suns will burn and then dust will blow

Honey scars I’ll keep you near
Our blood is gold nothing to fear
We killed the time and I love you dear
Kiss of wine we'll disappear
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible
The last of the last particles
Divisible invisible

Girl I Love You

( Vocal : Horace Andy )

Girl I love you but your loving has gone forever
Gonna miss you but my love has gone forever
I say I love you but your loving has gone forever
Gonna miss you but my love has gone forever

Girl I'm back in spanish town
Ain't no trouble coming around
You promise you will never let me down
If you love me that much you will stick around

It’s hard to know that your love exist
But I know this one is for real

Girl I love you but your loving has gone forever
Forever

Psyche

( Vocal : Martina Topley-Bird )

I'm looking for you in the woods tonight
I'm looking, looking for you with my flashlight
I'm searching from in the high or down the ocean
And I face myself in racing
Cain the wolf
Cain the wolf

Conjure me as a child
Slipping down the wet side
Stretch out I'm gonna reach him
Jumping up, they drag him from the water

I watch them march him into life
I watch them take him from the pale
Look to the sky for your eagle eye
The sun seeds a sickle and a scythe

Ridicule they won't allow
Quench abuse and let love flower
Rip the cage out of your chest
Let the chaos fool the rest

Show without showing
What you know without knowing
Twigs snap, eye catch, lone canoe
Only you and me
Alone on the old TLC

Dissolving who we are
Call out for yesterday’s destiny gone
We're on a foreign shore

It was the marker falling
I was the car still running
And when you call I’ll be your shield for life
And if you feel it you will fly
The sun set a bigger me

And I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in
As I was set to fall in…

Flat of the Blade

( Vocal : Guy Garvey )

I’m not good in a crowd
I got skills I can't speak of
Things I’ve seen will chase me to the grave

I’m not good in a crowd
I got skills I can't speak of over there
Things that I’ve seen will chase me to the grave

Led with your hands tied, fed to the sand flies
Stumble the jews, complain to the moon
Backs to the wheel, there’s granite to shove
Take it, they give it, so rivet for rivet
I will build for my family a bullet-proof love

How does it feel, the weight of the steel
The weight of the steel of the flat of the blade
How does it feel to kneel at the feet
To kneel at the feet of the choices you’ve made

I’m not good in a crowd
I got skills I can't speak of
Things I’ve seen will chase me to the grave

Backs to the wheel, there’s granite to shove
Take it, they give it, and rivet for rivet
I will build for my family a bullet-proof love

Paradise Circus

( Vocal : Hope Sandoval )

It's unfortunate that when we feel a storm
We can roll ourselves over 'cause we're uncomfortable
Oh well, the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we're spinning in his grin

Love is like a sin, my love
For the ones that feel it the most
Look at her with her eyes like a flame
She will love you like a fly will never love you again

It's unfortunate that when we feel a storm
We can roll ourselves over when we're uncomfortable
Oh well, the devil makes us sin
But we like it when we're spinning in his grin

Love is like a sin, my love,
For the one that feels it the most
Look at her with a smile like a flame
She will love you like a fly will never love you again

Rush Minute

( Vocal : Robert '3D' Del Naja )

I wanna be clean but I gotta get high
It’s good to be here so hard to come by
You bring pain 'cause you got game
And needles and pins a man can't take

Peaches living in niches
Digging the scene like beautiful cliches
From these shapes of a gangster lean
Ignoring wars on gasoline
Our god's on yearning and made to get high
God's left hand wasn't made to get by
Got more highs left in me
And there's more room in recovery

From evil states that strip all chrome
From Marshall Amps into broken homes
And borstal blues to countless clicks
That rhythm sticks to those classic cheques
Steal your tears and drown your fears
All is clear in a glass of beer



Peaches living in niches
Digging the scene like beautiful cliches
You fill me with endorphins
And you star in magazines
We draw liquor from the mattress springs
It ain’t over til the last bell rings
Got more highs you and me
And deluxe rooms in recovery

Saturday Come Slow

( Vocal : Damon Albarn )

Lost in the magic
From the last time
This town turning
My arrows to design

Saturday come slow
Do you love me
Do you love me
Is there nothing there

In the lime stone caves
In the south west land
What sounds in the kingdom
Beneath us on the stand

Saturday come slow
Do you love me
Do you love me
Is there nothing there

Saturday come slow
Do you love me
Do you love me
Do you love me
Do you love me
Is there nothing there

Atlas Air

( Vocal : Robert '3D' Del Naja )

Yes shall we take a spin again in business
This time is fixed, let's sweeten our facilities
It took all the man in me
To be the dog you wanted me to be

Shall we take a spin again no witnesses
This time is fixed, seven three seven is
You won't feel a thing
Begging until you give it up insane

Fish like little silver knives
Make the cuts on my inside
Yeah let him feast
My heart is big, my heart is big
My blood will slide in metal studs

Tourniquet will hold its groove
Tourniquet will keep its grip
It took all the man in me
To be the dog you wanted me to be

Yeah let him feast
My heart is big
My heart is big
My blood will slide
You let him feast
My heart is big
My heart is big
My blood will slide

Got not to lose but my chains
Internet feats on my brains
Head in the sand, feet in the clay

And time is still like grease it slips
Sucking in, spitting pips
Yeah spitting pips

Not to lose but my chains
Internet beats on my brains
Head in the sand, feet in the clay
A place to piss, a place to pray

A little money should tell me of my faith
This gun of smoke is slaying me
And time is still like grease it slips
Suck it in, spitting pips
Yeah spitting pips

My heart was big and like my pride
Let them feast on my insides
And when the filled had spilled its guts
Gently open then it shuts

I’m in the hole
Three thousand days
A buried soul
They live the dream
In terminal
No war too mean

I know the drill
Got cells to burn
I’m dressed to kill
A mortal coil
And time is still
On secret soil

Yeah pay the bills
Cells to burn
Mouths to fill
On Boeing jets
In the sunset make glowing threats

Aftersun

( Featuring Dot Allison - Danny The Dog OST )

When i was chasing the fear away,
I forgot to breathe again.
In this moment we shine,
Burn to ember every time.

When i was trying to shelter,
I forgot to rescue you.
In these moments we drown,
Take this rose with thorns to crown.

Every time i fall i am ascending.
Every time you call me near.
Only when we slip the need is ending.
Mirror i am letting go.

When you were trying to save me,
You forgot to let me go.
In this freedom we found,
Raining stars down to the ground.

And with the truth in your hands,
You concealed it with your lies
In this moment we drowned,
Lost more than we ever found.

Every time i fall i am ascending,
Every time you call me near.
Only when we slip the need is ending
Mirror i am letting go...

Any Love

(wolinski)

Tony Bryan

You go out every night as a single
But you don't really know what to do
You see someone you'd just like to mingle
And you imagine she's waiting for you

Any love
Any love that you feel is for real
And each time that you use love
You're gonna lose love

Any love
Love love
Love sweet love

Any love
Love love
Love sweet love

There is no certain crowd that you run with
Throw your passion away let me run with
He says hi she says hi and i'm done with
Though you never belong i'm waiting to see
Any love that you feel is for real
And each time that you use love
You're gonna lose love

Any love
Love love
Love sweet love
Any love
Any love
Love love
Love sweet love
You go out every night as a single
But you don't really know what to do
You see someone you'd just like to mingle
And imagine that she is waiting for you
's waiting waiting for you
Is waiting for you
Waiting for you

Any love
Love love
Love sweet love

Bullet boy

( From the Bulet Boy Soundtrack )

Blue
Everything
Blue
Everything
Blue
Everything
Bruised
From another place
Everything
Takes grace
And the air's still warm
For the bullet
In the wrong place
You're still moving i'm still wounded
From the speed
Never leave so free
I still stare
From the glare
Of the last stare
Bruise
From another place
Everything
Takes grace
And the air's still warm

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

Sitting in my day care
It was day-glo painted
You see me i'm a drinker
You see me now i'm sainted
Chased by the plaintiff
Haunted by the medium
Too high to flow too bored to break the tedium
Glow from my tv set was blue like neon
Activate the remote i put the bbc on
See the city, so on
I'm looking out for no-one
Pallor in my eyes get blue like neon
It gets blue like neon
It gets blue like neon

Can't see nothing wrong
Can't be nothing wrong
Inside of me

Daddy G
I walk in a bar, immediately i sense danger
You look at me girl as if i was a
A total stranger

3D
Hysterical, ecstatic
Automatical the stacks
It's kind of hard to get a drink or
Just a girl to relax on
Phono, no go zone i go through
Killer waits just to relocate you
Careless with your fist
So you mix it with me
I function better when i get approximately
High by my technical fly by
I function better with the sun in my eyes
I function better with the sun in my eyes
I function better with the sun in my eyes

Horace Andy
Can't see nothing wrong
Can't be nothing wrong
Inside of me

Daddy G
Take a second of me you beckon i'll be
And when you're sad i'll mourn
And when you're down i'm torn
Take a second of me
Said take a second of me
I stand firm for our soil
Lick a rock on foil
Reduce me, seduce me
Dress me up in stussy
Will you be my victim
Show me where to stick 'em
Take a second of me

3D
A second to see
In my day-care
On my sofa
One spliff makes daddy go sleep
Makes daddy go sleep

Fake the Aroma

Daddy G :
You sure you wanna be with me i've nothing to give
Don't lie and say this lovin's best
Don't leave us in emotional pace
Take a walk take a rest, now take a rest

3D :
I seen ya diggin a hole in ya neighbourhood
You're crazy but you're lazy
No need to live in a lean-to
Your troubles must be seen to
See through money like it's paper
With faces i remember
I drink on a daily basis though it seldom calms my temper
It never cools my temper
Ya leave me in peace, ya leave me in pieces

Daddy G :

We're not exactly lovers
Your a couple specially
When your bodyies double
Duplicate and then you wait for the next kuwait

False flags

( Live with me EP & Collected LP )

Samples : Radiohead - the bends

3d :

In city shoes
Of clueless blues
Pays the views
And no-mans news
Blades will fade from blood to sport
The heroin's cut these fuses short
Smokers rode a colonial pig
Drink and frame this pain i think
I'm melting silver poles my dear
You bleed your wingss and then disappear
The moving scenes and pilot lights
Smithereens have got 'em scaling heights
Modern times come talk me down
And battle lines are drawn across this town
Parisian boys without your names
Ghetto stones instead of chains
Talk 'em down cause it's up in flames
And nothing's changed
Parisian boys without your names
Riot like 1968 again
The days of rage yeah nothing's changed
Well pretty flames
In school i would just bite my tongue
And now your words they strike me down
The flags are false and they contradict
They point and click which wounds to lick
On avenues this christian breeze
Turns its heart to more needles please
Our eyes roll back and we beg for more
It frays this skin and then underscore
The case for war you spin and bleed
The sales you feel screensavers feed
The girls you breed the soaps that you write
The graceless charm of your gutter snipes
The moving scenes and suburbanites
And smithereens got 'em scaling heights
Modern times come talk me down
The battle lines are drawn across this town
English boys without your names
Ghetto stones instead of chains
Hearts and minds and u.s. Planes
Nothing's changed
And english boys without your names
Riot like the 1980's again
The days of rage yeah nothing's changed
More pretty flames

Four Walls

( Massive Attack Vs. Burial )

They know that I can't settle down
They know but they won't keep me in line, in line
They know that I want his liquid
They know that I'm not her breath
They know that I can't settle down
They know but they won't keep me in line, in line, in line

These four walls have eyes, got lost on the way
They'll hold me a while till he thinks that way, till

In line last night held the light
Down to save me from pain, happiness can lie
Remembering our lost home (our lost way)

In line, in line, in line till we're lost, I forgot

Home of the Whale

(Owen Hand)

Caroline Lavelle

Oh my love he works upon the sea
On the waves that blow wild and free
He splices the ropes and he sets the sail
While southwards he roams to the home of the whale

And he ne'er thinks of me far behind
Or the torments that rage in my mind
He is mine for only part of the year
Then I'm left all alone with only my tears

All ye ladies that smell of white rose
Thank ye for your perfume to wear on my gold
Thank ye all the wives and the babies that yearn
For the man ne'er returns from hunting the sperm [whale]

Oh my love he works upon the sea
On the waves that blow wild and free
He splices the ropes and he sets the sail
While southwards he roams to the home of the whale

I against I

( Feat Mos def / Balde 2 Soundtrack )

I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,

Right here is where the end gon' start at,
Conflict, contact 'n' combat,
Fighters stand where the land is marked at,
Settle the dispute about who the livest,
3 word answer,
Whoever survive this,
Only one of us can ride forever,
So you and I cant ride together,
Can't live or cant die together,
All we can do is collide together,
So I skillfully apply the pressure,
Won't stop until I'm forever... One!

A door step where death never come,
Spread across time til my time never done,
And I'm never done,
Walk tall, why ever run?
When they move if I ever come?
Bad man never fret the war, tell'em come
General we have the stock, the mad fire burn

I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
Survive (x16)

Reign supreme in your U-N-I,
V-E-R-S-E with the sharpness,
Narrow row building no space for partners,
No space for drivers, no space for walkers,
No space regardless,
Your on my path then get off it,
Hardheaded and unresponsive,
Get they lives put on target with harshness,
Come with the canons sparkin' they darken,
Who am i? One man squadron,
Ma stir the fire this time that'd snatch your tomorrow,
The thousand yard spear that'll pierce through your armor,
You can get it on right now if you want to,
But when ya front 9 get marched through,
I warned you,
You know who forever belong to,

I-ya, I-ya
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine the same time,

I-ya, I-ya,
I against I,
Flesh of my flesh,
And mind of my mind,
Two of a kind but one won't survive,
My images reflect in the enemies eye,
And his images reflect in mine, survive
Survive (x16)

Horace Andy :

My love
Your light
Incantation
Struck stars like tears fall

It's all good

( feat. Sinéad O'Connor / Lyrics by Damien Dempsey, Music by robert del naja, neil davidge & sinéad o'connor )

I am an angry man, yeah
I vent it when i can, yeah
On the bag, not the skag

The negativity, yeah
Pushed onto young paddy, yeah
Is a shame
Whose to blame?

And when the baby cries, yeah
She has been criticised, yeah
Been put down,
It's passed down

But it's all good, it's all good
All i say to you today
It's all good, sure it's all good
All i say to you today

And positivity, yeah
It is the way for me, yeah
It is truth, it is you

They try to keep us down, yeah
They hide the high king's crown, yeah
From the gaels
Kathleen wails

And to survive their sting, yeah
You have to be the king, yeah
Grasp the wealth of yourself

But it's all good, sure it's all good
All i say to you today
It's all good, sure it's all good
All i say to you today

Love yourself today, ok... Ok
Love yourself today, ok... Ok

I Want You

Madonna

I, yi yi yi

I want you the right way
I want you, but i want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like i want you

Da da, da da, da da da

I'll give you all the love i want in return
But half a love is all i feel, sweet darling
It's too bad, it's just too sad
You don't want me no more
But i'm gonna change your mind
Some way, somehow

I want you the right way
I want you, but i want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like i want you

Da da, da da, da da da


One way love is just a fantasy
To share is precious, pure and fair
Don't play with something you should cherish for life
Oh baby, don't you wanna care?
Ain't it lonely out there?

I want you the right way
I want you, but i want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like i want you

I want you the right way
I want you, but i want you to want me too
Want you to want me baby
Just like i want you

I want you, the right way
Want me, baby
Don't play with something
You should cherish for life

** Thanx to Adrian who help me with with one **

Live with me

( feat. Terry Callier from the Collected LP )

It don't matter, when you turn
Gonna survive, live and learn.
I've been thinking about you baby
By the light of dawn, and in my blues
Day and night, I been missing you

I've been thinking about you baby,
Almost makes me crazy,
Come and live with me

Either way, win or lose,
When you're born into trouble you live the blues

I've been thinking about you baby

See it almost makes me crazy child
Nothing's right if you ain't here
I'd give all that I have just to, keep you near
I wrote you a letter and tried to make it clear
That you just don't believe that, I'm sincere.

I've been thinking about you baby...

Plans and schemes, hopes and fears
Dreams i've denied for all these years

I've been thinking about you babe, living with me, well.....
I've been thinking about you baby, makes me wanna...child

Nothing's right, if you ain't here
I give all that I have just to keep you near
I wrote you a letter darlin', trying to make it clear
How much you just don't believe that I'm sincere.
Thinking about you baby, I want you near me

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

Love is ours (demo)

( feat. Sinéad O'Connor )

Your gentle love
Is everything i dreamed of
Since i first heard of love
So long ago, ...so long ago
When there was only fear
And it still lives inside me here
Like a good friend i don't want near

Who wears the scars of the war between me and the stars?
The mother and the father of all wars
Look in my heart,
My raging heart
The one that's still smashed all apart
My raging heart,
Is just like yours

But if the truth be told
It's time for all those things to get old
And time to let go

Oh pain and fear
And anything that don't keep happiness near
For love is ours
God knows we are in it with our hearts

Will you love my heart?
The one that's still smashed all apart
My raging heart
Will you love my heart like i love your heart?
Your tender, gentle heart
Your heart that's still so sore

Let love be ours, ours, ours
Let be ours

My aching heart, my aching heart

Nature boy

( From Moulin rouge Ost / Words & lyrics Eden Ahbez )

David Bowie

There was a boy
A very strange enchanted boy
They say he wandered very far, very far
Over land and sea

A little shy
And sad of eye 
But very wise
Was he 

And then one day
One magic day he passed my way
And while we spoke of many things
Fools and kings
This he said to me

The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved in return

(I love you)

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

Reflection

3D
Take me where the tides start
And i can pull you into me
You're pressure crushing gravity
Your corona is reaching consequences
Misting all my lenses
It all comes back to me (back to me)
Broken down folio
Collects like dust around my head
And lightly rings and clings
Can't be shaken off the last
Like characters we less and mess
Your rig goes damnation now to appease you
There's nothing i can save for this
No fold it up into a fist
No violent string
No flight-path
No cream
Comes back to me
Comes back to me
It all comes back to me
It all comes back to me
Comes back to me
Comes back to me
Comes back to me
No use to me
Infrared to find you
I fly in to remind you
I burnt my universe for you
Attracted to opposing poles
And anti-matter protocols
In seconds flat you're history
No use to me, no mystery
No use to me, no use to me
No use to me
No use to me, no use to me
Comes back to me
No use to me, back to me

*** Thanx a lot to Sara who corrected some mistakes ***

Small time shoot 'em up

( Collected LP )

3D :

Took her in
Dropped a line
Turned me on
We never leave each other
‘Cause we leave each other so cold
Makes it melt away
The easy part is taking yourself in
It's wartime every time
Shot away
You wipe the smile from your face
It's getting in the way
It's wartime every time
She cut me a line and she turned me on
She made it cool
You couldn't do it if you wanted to
It's wartime every time
Smalltalk every time
It's my favourite chloroform
It's pill talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Shot away
Ricochet
We're like identical twins
Sucking on the same teat
Spitting out the same things
It's wartime every time
Small talk every time
It's my favourite chloroform
It's pillow talk every time
Get it out the way
Friction wound
Ricochet
Line them up and knock them down
Shot away
Shot away
Shot away

The Hunter Gets Captured by the Game

(william "smokey" robinson, jr.)

Tracy Thorn

Everyday brings change,and the world puts on a new face
Sudden things rearrange, and this whole world seems like a new place
Secretly i been tailing you
Like a fox that prays on a rabbitt
Had to get you and so i knew
I had to learn your ways and habits
Ooooooh, you were the catch that i was after
I looked up and i was in your arms and i knew that i was captured

What's this whole world comin to
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game

I had to lay such a tender trap
Hoping you might fall into it
Love hit me with a sudden slap
One kiss and then i knew it
Ooooooh, my plans didn't work out like i thought
'Cause i had laid my trap for you but it seems that i got caught

What's this whole world comin to
Things just ain't the same
Any time the hunter gets captured by the game

Ah yeah, yeah yeah, hey yeah
