Thievery Corporation make abstract, instrumental, mid-tempo dance music somewhere between trip-hop and acid jazz. The production duo of Rob Garza and Eric Hilton, Thievery Corporation released a few warmly received singles on their own Eighteenth Street Lounge (ESL) label (named for their Washington, D.C. bar and nightclub) in 1996. Previously known primarily among acid jazz and rare-groove DJs, the group shot to minor celebrity when a track from one of their early 12"'s appeared on respected DJ/producers Kruder & Dorfmeister's mix session for Studio K7's DJ Kicks series. Similar in many respects (and more than just number) to that Viennese production duo, Thievery Corporation subsequently grew in popularity among a wider audience of DJs and headphonaunts. Their debut full-length appeared in 1997, along with a compilation of Washington, D.C.-based electronica artists, Dubbed Out in DC (both on ESL). After 4AD signed the duo they began work on their second LP but were forced to postpone the release date after tapes were stolen in a mugging. The stopgap remix compilation Abductions & Reconstructions was released in 1999, and their second proper album The Mirror Conspiracy followed a year later. Their growing fame made them a natural to select tracks for the 2001 Verve compilation Sounds From the Verve Hi-Fi, and one year later, the duo returned with a third production LP, The Richest Man in Babylon. The mix album Outernational Sound and remix EP Babylon Rewound appeared in 2004. The Cosmic Game from 2005 featured guest vocalists Perry Farrell, the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne, and David Byrne.

Dance on Vaseline

( David Byrne )

I'm taking back the knowledge
I'm taking back the gentleness
I'm taking back the ritual
I'm giving in to sweetness

I'm taking back the knowledge
I'm taking back the gentleness
I'm taking back the ritual
I'm giving in to sweetness

And I'm tripping out working on a revolution
Don't let the day begin
And I'm working out time to time for evolutionn
Don't let the music in

Come preacherman, shoot me with your poisoned arrow
But I dance on Vaseline
And I'm tripping out working on a revolution
You don't let the music in

And I'm tripping out working on a revolution
Don't let the day begin
And I'm working out time to time for evolutionn
Don't let the music in

Come preacherman, shoot me with your poisoned arrow
But I dance on Vaseline
And I'm tripping out working on a revolution
You don't let the music in

This strange effect

You've got this strange effect on me
And I like it

You've got this strange effect on me
And I like it

You make my world in white
You make my darkness bright, oh yes
You've got this strange effect on me
And I like it

And I like the way you kiss me
Don't know if I should
But this feeling it's love and I know it
That's why I feel good

Le monde

Lou Lou :

Je pense bien que le monde est calculé
Je pense bien que tout est encadré
Que nos pensées sont tracées dans l'air auparavant
Et tu crois que la derniere prise
Elle a mis du temps à ta douleur
Ouvre les yeux le monde change
Ah oui je sais qu'un jour
Ah oui je sais qu'un jour
Pour voir plus clair
Tu dois oublier tous les mensonges
Ah le monde change, le monde change
Soulage ton coeur, soulage ton ame
Ah le monde change
Et tu crois que la derniere prise
Elle a mis du temps à ta douleur
Ta douleur, ta douleur
Demain est une autre sortie
Ca fait mal à dire mais j'ai peur, j'ai peur, j'ai peur
Ah le monde change, le monde change
Soulage ton coeur, soulage ton âme
Ah le monde change, le monde change

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

The World

Lou Lou :

I think that the world is full of purpose
I think that everything is delineated
That our thoughts are first spelled out in the air
And you think that the last try
Added to your pain
Open your eyes and the world changes
Ah, yes, I know that one day
Ah, yes, I know that one day
In order to see more clearly
You must forget all the lies
Ah, the world changes, the world changes
Soothe your heart, soothe your soul
Ah, the world changes
And you think that the last try
Added to your pain
Your pain, your pain
Tomorrow is another change
It hurts to say it but I'm scared, I'm scared, I'm scared
Ah, the world changes, the world changes
Soothe your heart, soothe your soul
Ah, the world changes, the world changes

Lebanese Blonde

Pam Bricker :

Too low to find my way
Too high to wonder why
I've touched this place before
Somewhere in another time
Now I can hear the sun
The clouds drifting through the blinds
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

A satellite recalled your voice
Sent me round the world again
All the night you've dreamt away
Sent me round my heart again
One touch upon my lips
And all my thoughts are clear
I feel your smoky mist
Up to the stratosphere

Did you notify my way
To hide a wonder why
I've touched this place before,
So we're in another time
Now I can hear the sound
The clouds drifting through the blidge
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

Did you notify my way
To hide a wonder why
I've touched this place before,
So we're in another time
Now I can hear the sound
The clouds drifting through the blidge
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

*** Thanx a lot to Klonas & Katherina for this one ***

( French Version )

Trop déprimée pour m'en tirer
Trop bien pour rien piger
J'ai deja connu cet état
Ailleurs plein d'autrefois
J'entends le soleil
Les nuages par les volets
Un million de pensées
Envahit mon esprit

Un satellite rappelait ta voix
Orbite dans le monde pour toi
Tu as rêvé toute la nuit
En envie de mon coeur
Je t'effleure des levres et puis
Ca me donne les idées claires
Je sens ton suc se dissiper
Jusqu'à la stratosphere

Trop déprimée pour m'en tirer
Trop bien pour rien piger
J'ai deja connu cet état
Ailleurs plein d'autrefois
J'entends le soleil
Les nuages par les volets
Un million de pensées
Envahit mon esprit

Not having you for me

Where I don't know
Only for you
Teach me how to see

Hmm, only with you
Hmm, only with you
I just want to see
Me alone with you

Only to know
What I don't know
I just want to see
Not having you for me

Shadows of Ourselves

Lou Lou :

Coeur Mécanique où sont tes piles ?
Perdu dans un monde, tout etranger
Quelle est la raison pour tous ces mensonges
On a plus le droit de se renfermer

Je n'ai pas le temps de perdre la tête
Pour nous sauver de nous-même
Je n'ai pas le temps de perdre la tête
Pour nous sauver de nous-même

Quelle est cette ivresse qui nous entraine
D'ou vient tous ces mots qui m'attaquent
Plaisirs incomplets qui m'envoutent
On a plus le droit de fermer ses portes

Je n'ai pas le temps de perdre la tête
Pour nous sauver de nous-même
Je n'ai pas le temps de perdre la tête
Pour nous sauver de nous-même
Pour nous sauver de nous-même
Pour nous sauver de nous-même

Lou Lou :

Mechanical Heart, where are your batteries?
Lost in a completely strange world
What is the reason for all these lies?
We don't have the right to close ourselves off anymore

I do not have time to panic
To save us from ourselves
I do not have time to panic
To save us from ourselves

What is this intoxication that draws us along
Where do these words attacking me come from?
Incomplete pleasures that bewitch me
We don't have the right to close our doors any more.

I do not have time to panic
To save us from ourselves
I do not have time to panic
To save us from ourselves
To save us from ourselves
To save us from ourselves

*** Thanx a lot to Liz for this translation ***

The mirror conspiracy 

Pam Bricker :

What I did here
Is in the past
How could we see
We'd never last

And time will tell
when you're all lies
And now the truth
Is your demise

All my hurt
All of your tears
Our whole world
Smoke and mirrors

All my hurt
All of your tears
Our whole world
Smoke and mirrors

You hid yourself
In wandered eyes
But now I see
Through your disguise
From where I stand
A lovely view
Your world unwinds
You come unglued

All my hurt
All of your tears
Our whole world
Smoke and mirrors

All my hurt
All of your tears
Our whole world
Smoke and mirrors

*** Thanx a lot to Klonas & Warren & Kially for this one ***

The Richest Man In Babylon

Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes

Do you applaud fear
Do you hold it near
Are you afraid to live your life
The way I perceive
In my arms I'll catch you
Do you mind If I always love you

Heaven's gonna burn your eyes

You'll see
In my dream I'll catch you
Into my arms I'll catch you
Do you mind if I always love you

Heaven's gonna burn your eyes

Omid (Hope)

Day by Day, people get sick of one another
Day by day, people chase each other away
I chose solitude
For I lost faith in my world
I had dreams of peace
How simple hearted was i
Day by day, people get sick of one another
Day by day, people chase each other away
Omid do what is in your power
To save us from all this pain
Forbid our lives to go by
So fast and abruptly
Without true love and happiness
Day by Day, people get sick of one another
Day by day, people chase each other away

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

PS. This song called Omid (Hope) is in Farsi (Persian).
I thought it might be interesting to put original lyric there.
So Kaveh Ahmadi
wrote the lyric in Farsi words (but in English Alphabets) below :

Farsi (Persian)

(Text of Omid by Kamyar)

Rooz be rooz a'damha, (x4)
Az ham dige sir mishan,
Az ham dige ghar mikonan,
Rooz be rooz a'damha,(x2)

Man az ha'meh joda shodam,
Az in donya bizaar shodam,

A'rezoie Solh dashtam,
Che ghadr sadeh del boodam,(x2)

A'rezoie Solh dashtam,
Che ghadr sadeh del boodam, (x2)

Rooz be rooz a'damha(x4),
Az ham dige sir mishan,
Az ham dige ghar mikonan,
Rooz be rooz a'damha, (x2)

Bia Omid kari bokon,
Chareye dard ha ro kon,

Nazar ke zendegi, Saree o tond tamoom beshe, (x2)
Bedoon eshgh o shaadi, (x2)

Rooz be rooz a'damha, (x4)
Az ham dige sir mishan,
Az ham dige ghar mikonan,
Rooz be rooz a'damha, (x2)

All that we perceive

Pam Bricker :

Everything that's real
And everything unrealized
All infinity
Starts falling from your eyes
We are fluid dreams
Vivid memories
All uncertainly
Leads to eternity

All that we perceive
In every mystery
Who are we
What we see
I can't comprehend

Who are we
What we see
I can't comprehend

Illuminating love falls from the skies
To water the illusions in our eyes
All that we desire and all we fear
All our aspirations grow unclear

We feel endlessly
Beyond all gravity

Who are we
What we see
I can't comprehend

Wo are we
What we see
I can't comprehend

Une simple histoire

Lou lou :

Couleur de vie, couleur de joie
Où sont tes larmes, tous tes mots
Et puisque t'en as marre de voir
Tous les gens souffrir
Cette notion trop simple et naïve
Parvenir à vaincre une loi
Loi invisible, si injuste
Si injuste, si sombre

Vis ta vie, elle est si belle
Vis ta vie, c'est la tienne
Vis ta vie, sans mensonge
Vis ta vie, comme tu veux

Couleur de vie, couleur de joie
Où est ce feu philosophique
Ton esprit condensé, pulverisé
Subtilé par toutes tes larmes

Vis ta vie, elle est si belle
Vis ta vie, c'est la tienne
Vis ta vie, sans mensonge
Vis ta vie, comme tu veux

Vis ta vie, elle est si belle
Vis ta vie, c'est la tienne
Vis ta vie, sans mensonge
Vis ta vie, comme tu veux

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

A Simple Story

Lou lou :

Colour of life, colour of joy
Where are your tears, all your words
And since you're so tired of seeing
All the people suffer
This simple, naïve idea
Will manage to overcome a law
An invisible law, so unjust
So unjust, so dark

Live your life, it is so beautiful
Live your life, it is yours
Live your life without lies
Live your life however you want to

Colour of life, colour of joy
Where is that philosophical spark
Your spirit dragged down, pulverized,
Subjugated by your tears

Live your life, it is so beautiful
Live your life, it is yours
Live your life without lies
Live your life however you want to

Live your life, it is so beautiful
Live your life, it is yours
Live your life without lies
Live your life however you want to

Meu Destino

Patrik De Santos :

Eu vou sem nenhuma direção,
E eu sou não preciso nada mais,
Lua, estrela, meu caminho meu destino,
A lua, o sol, que me dá o seu calor,
Chuva, o seu olhar,
Que me dá o seu calor, que me dá a direção,
Que me dá o meu valor, que me dá o seu calor,
Eu vou eu vou, eu sou eu sou,
Eu vou eu vou, sem nenhuma direção

*** Thanx a lot to Vlan & Paulo & Ricardo for this one ***

My Destiny

Patrik De Santos :

I go without a direction,
I am, don't need nothing more,
Moon, star, my way, my destiny,
Moon, Sun, give me your heat,
Rain, your gaze,
That gives me your heat, gives me the direction,
That gives me my value, that gives me your heat,
I go I go, I am, I am,
I go without a direction.

Exilio (Exile)

Verny Varela:

Ven ven, ven ven, ven vente a gozar
Ven ven, ven ven, ven vente a bailar

Nuestra persistencia y nuestra alegría
Identifican nuestra raza latina
Hemos salido de nuestras tierras
Huyendo de los problemas, corriendo de las balas
Buscando mira una oportunidad... pa' mejorar

Pa pa paz pide la gente
Pa pa paz pide la gente
Las escopetas...
Pa pa paz pide la gente
Pa pa paz pide la gente
Las escopetas también dicen...

Y la violencia trae violencia
Corrupción la destrucción
Honestidad donde te has ido que no te encuentro ya

Ven ven, ven ven, ven vente a gozar
Ven ven, ven ven, ven vente a bailar

Pa pa paz pide la gente
Pa pa paz pide la gente
Las escopetas también dicen...

Ven ven, ven ven, ven vente a bailar

*** Thanx a lot to Alvaro & Paty for this one ***

Verny Varela:

Come come, come come, come come to enjoy
Come come, come come, come to dance

Our persistence and our joy
Identify our Latin race
We've left our homelands
Fleeing from the troubles, running from the bullets
Looking for an opportunity... to better our lives

Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
The shotguns...
Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
The shotguns also say...

And the violence brings more violence
Corruption, destruction
Honesty, where did you go that I can no longer find you

Come come, come come, come come to enjoy
Come come, come come, come to dance

Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
Peace! Peace! Peace! plead the people
The shotguns also say...

Come come, come come, come come to enjoy
Come come, come come, come to dance

The richest man in babylon

Notch :

There is no guidance in your kingdom
Your wicked walk in Babylon
There is no wisdom to your freedom
The richest man in Babylon

Your beggars sleep outside your doorway
Your prophets leave to wander on
You fall asleep at night with worry
The saddest man in Babylon

The wicked stench of exploitation
Hangs in the air and lingers on
Beneath the praise and admiration
The weakest man in Babylon

There is no hope left in your kingdom
Your servants have burned all their songs
Nobody here remembers freedom
The richest man in Babylon

Si la lou babylon go 'dain
Babylon not get rich again
But you end up sick again
And you end up weak again
Babyloooon on on on on
(Rasta scat)
Sal la lou ca uba whoa
Si la douba douba do wa bay
Baba diba uba uba uba uba bay

Si la loo babylon come 'round
You better know you better understand
'The rancher man you better hear what we say
Babylon this is your final day
Babylon this is your final call
Read the writin' it's on the wall

Said devided we stand
And together we fall
You never know that
You're not 'gon catch me in a rat pack
We not go fallin' on your death trap
No way...

Whoooooa oh oh oh oh whoa oh who oh oh
Whooooooa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh o oh

The state of union

Sleepywonder and shinehead :

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should
And I know all the things you hide
Even though it's a good disguise
And we see all the things you do
And what you do will comeback on you
You think we can't fight what the eyes can't see
Because we are blinded by poverty

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

It's like the people you want them to rebel
And fire gunshots and burn buildings to hell
And after that you a go want treat me well
It's like you have the people under a spell
Talking to the people in a congress
A we vote you in, so you must put out your best
After all we no in a contest
It's the state of the union address

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

Broadcasting lies on the television sreen
Trying to get us hooked on your american dream
We up on your games if you know wha me mean
When you cheated on your wife with your money and your schemes
People rule and a that you fi follow
We and nuh no call me no nigga
Do a good term and you deserve another
Signed musically yours, the general sleepywonder

The people live in misery
Govemment a work
But govemment them is a monckery
Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

The people live in misery
Govemment a work

Respect to the youths
Whether in front and all dem a back a me
Why don't you treat them the way you should

Until the Morning

Emiliana Torrini :

I keep on fear, keep on loathing
Nothing brings it on, I keep on falling
Decide what it is I can not find
It's subsides what you make it
Never feel like you're gonna break it
It's gonna be alright alright now
Sleep until the morning comes
The sun will warm your soul
Sleep on, till the morning comes for you, okay yeah
'Til the morning it's alright
I can walk into the sunlight, into the day, into the day, to the day
I feel it falling, nothing comes to my mind
Bring it on in a different tide
I feel alright, alright now
I feel strong, I feel rigid
It's nothing to do with the vision
Oh feels so right, so right
Sleep on tight, sleep on tight
Sleep on, till the sunlight
Sleep on, till the sunlight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight
Sleep on tight, till the sunlight
Sleep on tight, till the sunlight burns you happy
Till the sunlight burns you happy
Till the sunlight burns a happy whole in your heart
In your heart
In your heart...

Warning Shots

They try their best just to mash up the resistance
Warning shots and sirens from a distance
Riot gear and barricade for an instance
And the words from mi mouth, mi nuh response
Hollywood sending signals of destruction
Stereotype the ghetto youths as the bad man
Overcome the rough times and we grow strong
Step up in a life, now them want to shake we hand

We are eternal, made of the creator
Won't fall to the soul-less devastators
Divide and conquer, and try to separate us
Up to this day, them still try fi rape us

Revolution Solution

Oh I've hoped for comfort
But I've never felt too safe
And in this hard life
I've had to navigate through
Unexhausted
Has been my virtue

Oh I've hoped for comfort
But I've never felt too safe
And in this hard life
I've had to navigate through
Unexhausted
Has been my virtue

They set themselves against I
They set my pride on fire
Phoenix always rises high
Rebel crusader
Driven to decisions
They trapped me into

The Revolution Solution
Oh I've come to join you

Oh I've hoped for comfort
But I've never felt too safe
And in this hard life
I've had to navigate through
Unexhausted
Has been my virtue

Oh I've hoped for comfort
But I've never felt too safe
And in this hard life
I've had to navigate through
Unexhausted
Has been my virtue

The paradox of poverty
Has left us dismayed
Sliding democracy
Washing away
The toil of the many goes
To the fortunate few

The Revolution Solution
Oh I've come to join you

The toil of the many goes
To the fortunate few

The Revolution Solution
Oh I've come to join you

Amerimacka

Miss Liberty turn inna Jezzabelle
All de dreams you go sell, de whole dem turn inna hell
Her bed of roses are filled with thorns
Her righteous robes are tattered and torn

If she had only stood for love
That would have been enough
She wouldn't have to hide her shame
If she had only stood for love
That would have been enough
But now she's burnt us all with her flames

Amerimacka
Oh what a beautiful life
Amerimacka
Is like licking honey off a knife

Amerimacka
Oh what a beautiful sight
Amerimacka
Oh what a beautiful life

The land of the free built on slavery
Our consciousness in captivity
The promise land is the liar's den
Your culture of greed has got to end

Now we're laying in the mud
Looking up above
Tear water just ah drop from the sky
They try to keep us in the mud
Separating us from love
But me nah go let dem conquer de I

Ambición Eterna

Vernu Varela :

Amor, no tengas miedo, amor
La vida es dura pero no es cruel
No creas todo lo que tú ves
Que sólo miedo quieren meter

Mi amor me dice qué debo hacer
Muchas preguntas sin responder
La vida nos pone pruebas
Yo sólo se...

Todo es producto de un ambición
Que nunca se saciará

Y si las cosas van mal
No pierdas nunca tu fé
Después de la tormenta viene la calma, tú ves

Detrás de esa oscuridad
Siempre hay una claridad,
Esa luz de esperanza que siempre está

No dejes que la intranquilidad
Te quite el sueno, tu libertad,

La vida tiene que continuar
Lo que pasará, sólo Él sabrá

Mi amor me dice cambia ese canal
Muchas tragedias he visto ya
Y la verdad no aparece
¿Dónde estará?

Todo es producto de un ambición
Que nunca se saciará

Y si las cosas van mal
No pierdas nunca tu fé
Después de la tormenta viene la calma, tú ves...

Detrás de esa oscuridad
Siempre hay una claridad,
Esa luz de esperanza que siempre está
Translation by Corqsan :

Love, don't be afraid, love
Life is tough but it's not cruel
Don't believe everything you see
'Cos only fear they want to cause

My love says what to do
So many questions with no answers
Life proves us
I only know...

Everything is the result of an ambition
That never will be satisfied

And if things go wrong
Don't ever lose your faith
After the storm comes the quietness, you see

Behind that darkness
There's always a light
That light of hope that is always there

Don't ever let that uncalmness
Take away your dream, your freedom

Life must go on
What will happen, only He will know

My love says change that channel
So many tragedies i have already seen
And truth does not appears
Where will it be?

Everything is the result of an ambition
That never will be satisfied

And if things go wrong
Don't ever lose your faith
After the storm comes the quietness, you see

Behind that darkness
There's always a light
That light of hope that is always there...

Sol Tapado

Eu sou o preto que você matou
Eu sou o gato que você cruzou
Água passada que você tomou
Eu sou a mesa que você virou

Eu sou o homem que você julgou
Eu sou a planta que você cortou
E a maconha que você fumou
Eu sou o negro que você matou

Bate bola entra na roda

Bate balaio entra na roda
Bate balaio que vai levar na cara

Eu sou a terra que você pisou
E o dinheiro que você gastou
Eu sou o sol que você tapou
Sou a mulher que você violou

Eu sou o escravo que você amarrou
O animal que você não soltou
Eu sou a luz que você tapou
Eu sou o negro que você matou

Covered Sun

I'm the black man who you killed
I'm the cat that you crossed by
Rotten water that you drank
I'm the table that you turned

I'm the man who you judged
I'm the plant that you cut
And the marijuana you smoked
I'm the black man that you killed

Beat ball, join the circle (join the capoeira circle)
Pay, mount, and stay outside, outside
Beat basket, join the circle
Beat basket that it will take in the face

Beat ball, join the circle (
Beat ball can be understood like playing soccer lightly, enjoying)
Pay, mount, and stay outside, outside
Beat basket, join the circle
Beat basket that it will take in the face
(It will be slapped [in the face!]

Eh, it dances with the full moon
Eh, eh! You already own me nothing
Eh, it dances with the full moon
Eh, eh you already own me nothing

I'm the earth that you stepped on
And the money that you spent
I'm the sun that you covered
I'm the woman that you raped

I'm the slave that you tied
the animal you didn't free
I'm the light that you covered
I'm the black man who you killed

Beat ball, join the circle
Pay, mount, and stay outside, outside
Beat basket, join the circle
Beat basket that it will take in the face

Beat ball, join the circle

The Heart's Lonely Hunter

The Truth is unspoken, a promise is broken
I'm under surveillance, they know what my name is
I need some protection, some love and affection
There's 1000 reasons, but one is the number

Welcome to my spaceship
It's beautiful forever
She's right here where you left her
And the heart's a lonely hunter

Save bottles of water and flour and sugar
Turn off the AC and hang up the bed sheets
Cover up windows, careful where the light goes
Yank out the cable and blow out the candle

Welcome to my spaceship
You're beautiful forever
She's right here where you left her
And the heart's a lonely hunter

Perfectly molded almost unfolded
Under the counter well, that is your nature
Drip grind or roasted, buttered or toasted
The greater the db's the higher the AC

Psycho acoustics
Down in the black seats
Stereo nation
Amplification
The brave and the righteous
They're safe in their houses
Now one is just a number
The heart's a lonely hunter
One is the number
Heart is a hunter
One is a number
Heart is a hunter

Welcome to my spaceship
You're beautiful forever
She's right here where you left her
And the heart's a lonely hunter

Welcome to my spaceship
You're beautiful forever
She's right here where you left her
And the heart's a lonely hunter

Wires and Watchtowers

How can the wicked smile while the world is burning
How can they turn their eyes and walk away
How can the blue bloods hide, while brothers killing brothers
Why do they divide I and I for diamonds and gold

The dreams of children they float to the sky
And wires and watchtowers can't bring their demise
Tell me why oh why are we so blind
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me why oh why do we deny
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind

The murderers clouds can't keep the sun from shining
The wind of Jah will scatter them away
The murderers clouds can't keep the sun from shining
Jah will scatter he who has no shame

The dreams of children they float to the sky
And wires and watchtowers can't bring their demise
Tell me why oh why are we so blind
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me why oh why do we deny
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind

Tell me why oh why are we so blind
The treasures of love lay buried inside
Tell me why oh why do we deny
The chains of Babylon are all in our mind

The Time We Lost Our Way

My mind is full bursting over
With all these things I can't remember
Every little single memory reminds me of you

My eyes were weary with all these tears
You left your shadow in my dreams
And all my doubts seem to disappear when you came along

Flowers melting up into the sky
Hear my heart where our love colides
We hear the songs we found in the times we lost our way

Gentle memories replace our tears
All the love we had is still right here
We hear the songs we found in the time we lost our way

From without words can not describe
What caused the stars to fall deep inside
Every little single memory reminds me of you

Our days are gone lost forever
Reflecting light glistening under water
Naturally this could be everything that seems so unreal

Flowers melting up into the sky
Hear my heart where our love colides
We hear the songs we found in the time we lost our way

Gentle memories replace our tears
All the love we had is still right here
We hear the songs we found in the time we lost our way

Flowers melting up into the sky
Hear my heart where our love colides
We hear the songs we found in the time we lost our way

Gentle memories replace our tears
All the love we had is still right here
We hear the songs we found in the time we lost our way

Woah now, retaliation
Singing woah now
We a go wake up the nation
Radio Retaliation
It's such a different corporation
We takin' over your station
And we a go change the vibration

People fi get up and pump them fist when Sleepy talk
Hear mi transmission whether you drive or whether you walk
Put up me antenna inna the middle of the park
And transmit mi signal inna the light and inna the dark
Radio retaliate, and never ever get caught
And change the stereotype of people's wash over thoughts
Fifty thousand watts of Thievery hit them like poison darts
And watch the whole system what them build up fall apart

Singin' woah now retaliation
Singin' woah now

It's such a different corporation
We takin' over your station
And we a go change the vibration

Mi have the basic qualification, just fi get people straight
And juggle the microphone from eight o'clock back to eight
People give me the recommendation from the musical senate
Fi juggle the roundest sound
The mellowest sound, the sound with the most weight
Them stand up out of the corner, inna the driveway, outta mi gate
To hear the chief rocker them a fling dubplate
All who want fi challenge Thievery, then its your time fi wait
And re-emerge from the scene, and wipe away all the hate

Radio retaliation
It's such a different corporation
We takin' over your station
And we a go change the vibration

Chief rocker Thievery Corp them pon the attack
With melody and sophistication make you bound have to rock
Sleepy Wonder deh pon the mic, the ragga muffin speed rap
And if your vibes is inna the gutter, I will lift it up to the top
Eric and Rob them produce the beat, and invite Sleepy down fi chat
The combination of the crew, destroy your whole habitat
The main objection of the track is to tear the whole place flat
And have the people inna the lounge
Them want to get up, and they are singin'

Woah now retaliation
Singin' woah now
We a go wake up the nation

It's such a different corporation
We takin' over your station

Let life take you

The evil that lives in inhabiting each of us
You have to persist, connect to yourself
Do the things that life has to offer, offer

I'm the president of the shadow government
The grand governor of the federal reserve
Public enemy of the society
The one you cannot see the thirty three degree

Before you call the shot but now it's our turn
Blow up the system now and tables have turned
Your hidden knowledge you thought I'd never learn
I strike a match and make the whole place burn

I'm the real WMD
I'm your number one public enemy
I'm the one, your runaway slave
I'm the one, the one who got away

Automatic rapid fire
Automatic make me inner danger

Lethal make me lethal, I'm a weapon
Danger make me danger AK-47
Lethal make me lethal, I'm a weapon
Danger make me danger

Cameras that track me
They try to entrap to me
Through shadows I creep
‘Cause I know exactly
The knowledge you keep
I'm the word on the street
I've got nothing to lose
The whole World to gain
Slipped out of your noose
Now I'm running your game

I beat the hive
I upset the swarm
Category five
I'm the center of the storm

We not gonna stress
Put me to the test
I strike a match and make the whole place burn

Walk with the angels and me down with wind
Bullet-proof vest and a smith and Wesson
Anybody test me I'm going to teach them
We're not gonna stress
Put me to the test
We not gonna stress

Beautiful Drug

Oh my love
It's not time for us to say
Our farewell
Not to deny ourselves
From ourselves

And with the time
The season passes
Once again
Memories that hang
In autumn's wind
Memories that hang
Once again

You are
The drug in my veins
And I'm waiting
To feel it again
And I'm waiting
To feel it again, again...

Through the years
Love radiates throughout
Life's charade
Shines through everything
That remains unsaid
Shines through everything
That remains unsaid

You are the drug in my veins
And I'm waiting to feel it again
You are the drug in my veins
And I'm waiting to feel it again...

La Femme Parallel

J'étais si jeune quand je l'ai rencontré
Elle m'a prise par la main
Elle m'a emmené au premier étage
Elle m'a envoyé dans les nuages
Elle m'a emmené dans les étoiles
Dans sa chambre, odeur capricieuse
Sur les murs des images au parallèle

Aussi belle que son papa
Charlotte avait de l'allure
Aussi belle que sa maman
Charlotte avait l'audace
D'être elle-même sans perdre sa foi
D'être elle-même sans perdre sa foi en elle

J'étais si jeune quand je l'ai rencontré
Elle m'a emmené dans les
Batailles au fond de mon coeur
Elle m'a envoyé quelque part de profond

Aussi belle que son papa
Charlotte avait de l'allure
Aussi belle que sa maman
Charlotte avait l'audace
D'être elle-même sans perdre sa foi
D'être elle-même sans perdre sa foi en elle

Toujours un peu perdu dans les nuages
Toujours un peu perdu dans les étoiles
Toujours un peu perdu dans les nuages
Toujours un peu perdu dans les étoiles

Toujours un peu perdu dans les nuages
Toujours un peu perdu dans les étoiles
Toujours un peu perdu dans les étoiles
Elle était perdue dans le son
Elle était perdue dans le son
Toujours un peu perdu dans les nuages
Toujours un peu perdu dans les étoiles
Elle était perdue dans le son
Elle était perdue dans le son

The Parallel Woman

I was so young when we first met
She took me by the hand
She led me to the first floor
She sent me to the clouds
She showed me the stars
In her room "infectious" perfumes
On the walls the pictures were all parallel

As beautiful as her father
Charlotte was elegant
As beautiful as her mother
Charlotte was audacious
Proud to be holding faith in herself
Proud to be holding faith in herself

I was so young when we first met
She took me in the
Battles deep in my heart
She sent me somewhere deep

As beautiful as her father
Charlotte was elegant
As beautiful as her mother
Charlotte was audacious
Proud to be holding faith in herself
Proud to be holding faith in herself

Always loosing herself in the clouds
Forever lost with the stars
Always loosing herself in the clouds
Forever lost with the stars

Always loosing herself in the clouds
Forever lost with the stars
Forever lost with the stars
She was lost in the sound
She was lost in the sound
Always loosing herself in the clouds
Forever lost with the stars
She was lost in the sound
She was lost in the sound

Retaliation Suite

We got to defend ourselves
We intend to defend ourselves
We did so in the past
And we gonna do it today
And the day after that and the day after that
Because only through this proper example of the self-defense
And the proper example of retaliation
And by letting these people know that we move from some basic laws
That anything that goes down will oppress people on the power of the oppressor
It should be reciprocal and in plain proleterian workers' language
It takes two to tango
As soon as these motherfuckers go, we go

It takes two to tango
As soon as these motherfuckers go, we go, we go, we go...

The Numbers Game

I'm talking people
About the same old game
Their running them numbers
And the winners never change
The dice is loaded
And the deck is stacked
The game itself
Will hold you back

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

Don't be in the dark
All by yourself
Don't play the hand
That the dealer has dealt
We're cashing out
'Cause it's time to sell
Taking back the power
Gonna share that wealth
Come on now

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

I'm talking people
About respect, yeah
Baby you can't win
When you place that bet
The dice is loaded
And the deck is stacked
The game itself
Will surely hold you back

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

Let's get hip on this
So you won't slip on this
See you gotta get hip on this
So you won't trip on this

To the numbers
To the numbers game

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

Check out your mind
And don't be blind
To the numbers game

Blasting Thru The City

War keeps blasting thru the City tonight
Love assassinated in broad daylight
The righteous are hiding in the graveyard grass
While the wicked sell their sons and daughters for cash

Hope cries louder than gunshot sounds
Wait for the dawning of light as we lay on the ground
Things have gotten so low that they can't fall down
Inspiration comes faster than incoming rounds

Feel the struggle but don't give up the fight
Life never seemed so clear through all the chaos tonight
Fear is blasting through speakers tonight
The land of the free and the vain
Never misses its rights

Hope cries louder than gunshot sounds
Wait for the dawning of light as we lay on the ground
Things have gotten so low that they can't fall down
Inspiration comes faster than incoming rounds

Open up your eyes
Don't be blinded by the light
All things must change
It's always been the same
Don't disguise ‘cause the system is devised to divide us
Them can't divide I and I

???

Them can't divide
Them can't divide
I and I, I and I, I and I

Them can't divide
Them can't divide
Them can't divide, I, and I

War keeps blasting thru the City tonight
Love assassinated in broad daylight
The righteous are hiding in the graveyard grass

The things I see, them can't see
Them can't see, them can't see

Sweet Tides

It took so long for me to realize
How strong your heart is
And all this time
My mind was working in
Strange ways

Looking back on the days
Just wanna be free
Through the love in your eyes
Now I'm staring inside
Just wanna be free
Through the love in your eyes

Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of
Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of

Sharp turn, my mind is a blur
Slow passage through the air
Looking back on the days
All over your mind, just wanna be free

Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of
Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of

Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of
Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of

It took so long
For me to realize
How strong your heart is
And all this time
My mind was working in
Strange ways

Sharp turn, my mind is a blur
Slow passage through the air
Looking back on the days
All over your mind, just wanna be free

Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of
Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of

Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of
Sweet tides, pools of love
Your eyes are full of...

Culture Of Fear

Web of deception

Why can't they see
How they always will deceive, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
All that they weave is a web of deceit, oh yeah
Why can't you see
How they always will deceive, oh yeah
All that they weave is a web of deceit, yeah yeah

Culture Of Fear

Seems to me like they want us to be afraid, man
Or maybe we just like being afraid
Maybe we just so used to it at this point that it's just a part of us
Part of our culture
Security alert on orange
It's been on orange since '01, G.
I mean what's up man?
Can a brother get yellow, man
Just for like two months or something
God damn
Sick of that
Mic check

The groove is dead so I'mma rhyme like a lunatic
I do this shit with an unassuming wit
The Corporation conjured up the bass and the tempo
My name is Lif, that's the intro, now let's go
The flow of life throwing strife into the mix
To the big dark condition and the word is sick
The power's that be, a power in me
To speak, a pause, stress and strife that I see everyday
And more to speak upon the culture of fear
It's up in your ear
They're tellin' us, terrorists are about to strike, maybe tonight, right
Let me just back up slowly, with critical analysis of those who control me
It used to be we just had a screen in the crib, on the tv
But now we carry screens when we leave see
Laptops, smart phones, now we're never alone
A new affliction I call it media dome
But on the road famine is the programming
You want to watch a favorite show because it's so slamming
Hold hands and let's gaze into the beautiful glare
While we're here so immersed in this culture of fear

Yo
We fear the IRS, fear for INS, fear God
I'm more afraid of the credit card than the terror squad
Cuz really y'all, they steppin' with weapons overseas
Yet Mastercard and Visa won't allow me to breathe
They deceive, the enemy is in the fine print
They assassinate, sell it
With no signal of the selling
Won't some steal it to get a few with the blue sky
It's beautiful, then a couple of choppers flew by, Dubai
Represent an element ahead
A sentiment that you feel on the road for real
The deal starts with a smile, concludes with a hand shake
Physical to alter your subliminal landscape
Relief thinking I can really trust that guy
To be honest could have should have really punched that guy
Now it's operation shank a banker
Thank you for the loan
See you when you come to repossess my home
Alone at night sweating with visions of Armageddon
I've never seen the threat, yet I feel threatened
Parts of our society designed to smear freedom
Don't succumb to this culture of fear
Don't succumb to this culture of fear
Don't succumb to this culture of fear

Take My Soul

Such strange ways to show
Who we are what you know
Put the love back in your heart

Let's try forgiveness
No self deception
Little less reaction
Little more reflection

New trails are blazing in
City shows no love tonight
All the sounds come crashing in
Inside and outside

Running through your mind
All the words collide
Nothing left to hide

Come on open your eyes
Take my soul
I don't need it anymore
Don't let go
You're the cure I'm looking for
Take my soul
I don't need it anymore
Don't let go
You're the cure I'm looking for

Old habits creeping up
Floating by riding high
Silver clouds up above

Come on open your eyes
Take my soul
I don't need it anymore
Don't let go
You're the cure I'm looking for
Take my soul
I don't need it anymore
Don't let go
You're the cure I'm looking for
Take my soul
I don't need it anymore...

Stargazer

I'll stare up in the sky
Forever
I'll stare up in the sky
Forever
Looking above
Looking above

I'll stare up in the sky
Forever
I'll stare up in the sky
Forever
Looking above
Looking above

Where It All Starts

Bright as the stars
Rise and fall
Do you ever wonder
Where it all starts

Believe it
Wear the cloak
Swimming above
Watching the flood

Bright as the stars
Rise and fall
Do you ever wonder
Where do we start

Believe it
The rain will come
Another night
Another day

Everywhere we look
Lights are moving faster
And then
You see it there

Slowly holding on
Colours fill your mind
And voices
Singing our song
And voices
Singing along

Here we are
Standing tall
Waiting and hoping
To see the lights shut
Over me,
Over the water

Another day goes by
Love in your eyes
Stare patiently
To see the sky
Open wide
Another day
People walking by
And you smile as you…

Is It Over

Far, far away
I remember
The world has gone astray
Close your eyes
Hold your breath
Dream safer from the stars
And now I'm tangled in her web

Time ever passing
I hear strange ghost
Fragments remind me of a memory that's now broke
Shadows and fiction
I don't understand
Do we ever really hold our dreams we thought we had

Is it over
Is it over
Is it over

I say goodbye
I say goodnight
Like a cloud afloat the ocean
I'm just drinking in a day
Such a night in a boat
Stranded in the moonlight
It's become my own refuge

Time ever passing
I hear strange ghost
Shadows remind me of a memory that's now broke
Shadows and fiction
I can't understand
Are we ever really in control of dreams we had

Is it over
Is it over
Is it over
Is it over

False flag dub

Thievery corporation
You and I
Keep your vision clear now
You and I
Keep your vision clear now
You and I
Keep your vision clear now...

Overstand

Let me make it clear
I don't care for religion
But you're still my brother
No matter your decision
A blonde haired, blue eyed God is overrated
Hear me now
I'm not attracted to the picture that you've painted

And though I'm young and I have much to learn
But faith without reason makes me concerned
Believing in one God, I'm gonna stand firm

For your own benefit yes you work to deceive
So I'm a put your foolishness under my feet
Be aware of the games of society

So let me make it clear
I don't care for religion
But you're still my brother
No matter your decision
A blonde haired, blue eyed God is overrated
I'm not attracted to the picture that you've painted
Listen now, hear me now

And though I'm young and I have much to learn
But faith without reason makes me concerned
Believing in one God, I'm gonna stand firm

For your own benefit yes you work to deceive
So I'm a put your foolishness under my feet
Be aware of the games of society

So let me make it clear
I don't care for religion
But you're still my brother
No matter your decision
A blonde haired, blue eyed God is overrated, yes
I'm not attracted to the picture that you've painted

So let me make it clear
I don't care for religion
But you're still my brother
No matter your decision

Free

Manipulating masses
You talk out your asses
Do you know what you say

You manufactured passes
And everybody's asking
What we need today

I bring you new
And there's no hook
I have no look
Welcome to new

I'll bring you new
And I'll recruit you
If you wanna come with me
Scream out top of your lungs
I want to be free
Can you sing

There is no hook
We have no look
And just for once
Assume that you are blind
And alone in your mind
Can you say I am free
Can you say I am free

We understand
That it is difficult to undo the chains of destruction
Now strongest when you know it's true

I am asking you to go back to the pyramidal tracks
Of where you know you do not like
The knowledge that has always been imparted to you

Such high and low and sweet you'll grow I promise you it's not far
Just hiding in the heart of your heart and all
Embracing everything from ohms to charms, yeah
I guess that crystals are beneath me
No, they're only subliminally pushed away
We cannot reap thee
Got to work for what you're given in this world
Fear transmission you're my girls and my boys of the rays
You are not the puppets or the slaves or the toys
We are working towards the morgue

Nothing else makes as much sense as this
Do I will continue on my mission with the risk to be free
Come with me and my goals are transparent to the sea
And my goals are parentally content to me
I am free
Come with me
I am free
Come with me

Saudade

Décollage

Lou Lou Ghelichkhani :

Nous avions trop fumé
Un peu plus que d'habitude
J'ai la tête qui tourne
Décollage dans la lune
Et nous avions passé la nuit

Décollage dans l'espace
Décollage sur la lune

Et quand tout s'est arrêté
La musique m'a pris
Et je sais que tout va être
Tout va bien avec le son
J'ai surpassé mes peurs
Et je sais que tu vas être
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Décollage dans l'espace
Décollage sur la lune
Décollage dans l'espace
En regard, quelque part

Je sais j'ai pas envie d'être naïve
Quand j'ouvre les yeux, le monde est parallèle
Et je sais
La foi est un seul oeil

Décollage dans l'espace
Décollage sur la lune
Décollage dans l'espace
Décollage sur la lune

C'est pas, c'est pas
C'est pas un rêve

Décollage dans l'espace
Décollage sur la lune

C'est pas, c'est pas

Meu Nego

Karina Zeviani :

Ô meu nego
Me leva pra passear
Não me deixa o dia inteiro
Sozinha a trabalhar

Eu estou ficando cansada
De viver sem teu amor
E já quase não sinto mais nada
Pois vivo sem teu calor

Qualquer dia você volta
Encontro a casa vazia
Não quero que a vida passe
Sem alegria

Assim não dá
Assim não dá
Assim nao dá não
Assim não dá pra continuar
Do seu lado
Assim não dá
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Assim não dá
Assim não dá pra continuar
Do seu lado
Assim não dá

Ô meu nego
Me leva pra passear
Não me deixa o dia inteiro
Sozinha a trabalhar

Eu estou ficando cansada
De viver sem teu amor
E já quase não sinto mais nada
Pois vivo sem teu calor

Ô meu nego
Qualquer dia você volta
Encontro a casa vazia

Quem Me Leva

Elin Melgarejo :

Eu andei louca
Pensando em você
Ai quem me dera
Voltar pra te ver
Foi no morro
Que eu te encontrei

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem
Pra favela
Você, meu bem

Quem nasceu lá
Perto do céu
Sabe o que tem pra dar

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem
Pra favela
Você, meu bem
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
É o povo, é a raiz
Faz a cidade vibrar
E enche o coração

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem
Pra favela
Você, meu bem

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem
Pra favela
Você, meu bem

Eu ando louca
Pensando em você
Ai quem me dera
Voltar pra te ver
Foi lá no morro
Que eu te encontrei

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem
Pra favela
Você, meu bem

Quem me leva
Você, meu bem

Firelight

Lou Lou Ghelichkhani :

Until the light faded away
And firelight dancing with no pulse
Our broken shadows rising from the walls

Another groove without a name
Carried through the floor
Memory recalls visions I've lost
All my dreams attended and then farewell, my love
Train is gone, deep fog remains
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Under the sun sweet sounds remain
The fire rise falling from the sky
Chased by the deep cause rising from the heart

Another groove without a name
Carried through the floor
Memory recalls visions I've lost
All my dreams attended and then farewell, my love
Train is gone, deep fog remains

Another groove without a name
Carried through the floor
Memory recalls visions I've lost
All my dreams attended and then farewell, my love
Train is gone, deep fog remains

Sola In Citta

Elin Melgarejo :

Una città che non conosco
E tu mi hai portato qui
Ora sei andato via
E non riesco a trovarti
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Ti cerco nella strada
Ma non ti trovo più

Dove sei
Perché mi hai portato qui
Dove stai
Non conosco nessuno qui
Sei andato via
Sono sola in città
Ti cerco dovunque
Vieni e portami con te

Dove sei
Ho bisogno di incontrarti
Dove stai
Ho bisogno di stare con te

Una città che non conosco
E tu mi hai portato qui
Ora sei andato via
Ma non riesco a trovarti
Voglio sentirti vicino
Voglio tenerti vicino a me
In questa folla di sconosciuti
È il tuo viso che vorrei incrociare

Dove sei
Ho bisogno di incontrarti
Dove stai
Ho bisogno di stare con te

Sei andato via
E non ti trovo più
Ti cerco dovunque
Vieni e portami con te

No More Disguise

Lou Lou Ghelichkhani :

No more disguise
Open my eyes
Sitting alone
Waiting for love
To walk in the door

Could we let go of all our fears
Would you take me through all your dreams
With silver drums
Marching away never in time
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
No more disguise
I'm lost in the sky
We've left long ago
With no reprise
And now we've moved on

The world is an illusion of dreams
We're playing roles in silent movies
Why do we hide
Nothing is real and we'll dissappear

Could we let go of all our fears
Would you take me through all your dreams
Dancing away like golden stars
Up above, up above

Claridad

Natalia Clavier :

Lumen del norte, aurora boreal
En cada noche de un brillo irreal
Cumplido cielo, divino resplandor
Silencio mágico, de pálido furor

Claridad
Ven y envuélveme hoy
Claridad

Que es primavera en este invierno azul
Cielo nocturno teñido por tu luz
Rosa y violeta mutando de color
Visión perfecta, reflejo sanador
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Claridad
Ven y envuélveme hoy
Claridad
Claridad

Es primavera en este invierno azul
Cielo nocturno teñido por tu luz
Rosa y violeta mutando de color
Visión perfecta, reflejo sanador

Claridad
Ven y envuélveme hoy
Claridad
Claridad

Claridad
Ven y envuélveme hoy
Claridad

Nós Dois

Karina Zeviani :

Dentro do silêncio
Me percebo
E te noto e te beijo
Junto do nascer do sol

Nós dois abraçadinhos
Na varanda
Na casinha tão sonhada
Encaixados feito caracol

Enquanto a vida nos deixar
Curtir assim
Enquanto for bom pra você
E para mim
Enquanto a vida nos deixar
Curtir assim
Enquanto esse amor viver
Dentro de mim
E de você
???
E de você
???

É melhor deixar acontecer
Naturalmente, sem expectativas
Se tiver de ser, será
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Enquanto a vida nos deixar
Curtir assim
Enquanto estiver bom pra você
E pra mim

Le Coeur

Lou Lou Ghelichkhani :

Depuis le départ de la tristesse
Mon coeur, il bat si fort
Depuis le départ de la tristesse
Mon coeur, il bat si fort

Balance dans l'air tous les émotions
Laisse partir tous tes grimaces
Balance dans l'air tous tes émotions
Et laisse-toi partir

Viens voyager dans mes histoires
Laisse toi aller quelque part de beau
Laisse toi aller quelque part là-haut
Viens voyager

Tous les gens nous disent qu'on a tort de suivre
Notre coeur quelque part ailleurs
Et les pensées les plus fragiles se perdent dans l'amour
Et moi ça me plait, et moi ça me plait
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
C'est une réalité comme une autre
C'est une façon d'aimer pour les autres

Et il dit en anglais
J'suis pas content ni malheureux
Et il dit en anglais
J'suis comme je suis

C'est une réalité comme une autre
C'est une façon d'aimer pour les autres
C'est une réalité comme une autre
C'est une façon d'aimer pour les autres

Et moi je t'aime
Et moi ça me plait

Para Sempre

Elin Melgarejo :

Quero você pra sempre
Quero você, meu amor
Quero você pra sempre
Quero você

Eu vim de longe
Só pra te ver, meu amor
Não quero você mais assim
Tão longe de mim

Quando você me diz
Que não quer me ver assim
Longe, longe
Não sabe se quer, mas eu

Quero você pra sempre
Quero você, meu amor
Quero você pra sempre
Quero você
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
É só você, meu bem
Nesse mundo que eu quero adorar
Só você, fica comigo
Não quero ir sem você

Mas você me diz
Que não quer me ver assim
Vou embora
Mas só vom você

Eu vim de longe
Só pra te ver, meu amor
Eu só quero você
Não quero viver mais assim

Mas você me diz
Que não quer ficar assim comigo
Longe, longe de mim
Você não quer ficar assim
Longe, longe
Longe, não quero ficar assim
Longe

Bateau Rouge

Lou Lou Ghelichkhani :

Un après midi sous le soleil
Le regard s'est fait arrachant l'amitié qui traine

Il se promet d'appliquer tout leur savoir
Pour pouvoir parvenir à vaincre le quotidien
Il se promet d'appliquer tout leur savoir
Pour pouvoir parvenir à vaincre le quotidien

Sous le soleil des tropiques
Ils se disent que peut être ils peuvent terminer
Un beau jour sur le bateau rouge
Sous le soleil des tropiques
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
L'ame est si belle comme un p'tit oiseau
Voyager si loin et réussir à accepter
Notre passé et tous nos pensées
Et un jour être complètement libre

Sous le soleil des tropiques
Ils se disent que peut être ils peuvent terminer
Un beau jour sur le bateau rouge
Sous le soleil des tropiques

Est-ce que je t'abime, est-ce que je t'ennuie
Est-ce que je te donne trop de sourires
Est-ce que tu me vois pour une femme fragile
Qui te donnera l'inspiration d'aller ailleurs
D'aller ailleurs
Quelque part de beau

Sous le soleil des tropiques
Ils se disent que peut être ils peuvent terminer
Un beau jour sur le bateau rouge
Sous le soleil des tropiques

Est-ce que je t'abime, est-ce que je t'ennuie
Est-ce que je te donne trop de sourires
Est-ce que tu me vois pour une femme fragile
Qui te donnera l'inspiration d'aller ailleurs
D'aller ailleurs
Quelque part de beau

Depth Of My Soul

Shana Halligan :

Where our world falls to pieces
And the moonlight starts to hide
In a million little splinters
In the corners of our mind

Where endless colors
They are swallowed by the sun
In a trail full of echoes
Just before they had begun

And fountains full of flowers
On islands full of tears
Weeping willows and fireworks
Explode then disappear

You believe what you see
All the things that you know
But oh you don't know
The depth of my soul
The depth of my soul
The depth of my soul

Karma's just a key
Unlocking every gate
Eyes are just mirrors
Pulling us to our fate
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
The sound of hello
Like a light to the blind
Sending us on a spiral
Through a world of goodbyes

All the truth that we crave
It's our fruitless parade
In a circus of our shadows
Where we play our charades

You believe what you see
All the things that you know
But oh you don't know
The depth of my soul
The depth of my soul
The depth of my soul
The depth of my soul

The Temple of I & I

Letter to the Editor

 (Feat. Racquel Jones)

Pocket full a promises
