Brother From the Eighties

Honey, my brother is going to visit me
All the way, from the eighties…
When he crashed on the motorbike, and died
He was canning it as always, with no helmet on his head

We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late tonight (late night)
We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late…

Honey, my brother is coming to visit me
No one knows he’s back in town
Still remember his bright jean jacket
With some holes on the back

We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late tonight (late night)
We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late…

It may happen, but won’t last forever
If he kept one day to be alive
When you’re coming back – you don’t have to save the world.

We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late tonight (late night)
We might be late and drunk (late night)
We might be late…
 

Off the Grid

Let’s stay… ready or not
Off the grid… ready or not
High above… ready or not
Here we come… ready or not
I don’t remember much
And not quite sure what that meant
True love… ready or not
This time… ready or not
It’s not too late… ready or not
Last night… ready or not
I don’t remember much
And not quite sure what that meant
Let’s stay, ready or not.

 

Scenography

You think that you stand on the right side, you think you can run away
It’s always just a change of a scenery
You think that you came at the right time, you think you may run away
It’s always just a change of a scenery
A different scenography
You think that you stand on the right side, you think you may run away
It’s always just a change of a scenery

They’ll come to take your soul
Take it by surprise
Then you won’t waste it

So that’s why I let them eavesdrop on me, I always wanted to be heard
An algorithm cannot think for me
Cannot feel for me
Cannot doubt for me
I always wanted to be heard

 

Cold Universe

I’m sorry, but I see no other way
Let’s try to pass by indifferently
That we are lonely in this
When all the cards are on the table now
All we have left is to say it out loud
That in this endless view, in this endless summer
We are lonely in this cold universe
Thousands of thoughts, thousands of thoughts we are
All of them are equally terrifying
We can dream, but we are much wiser now
We are lonely in this cold universe
Let’s try to pass by indifferently
We are lonely in this cold universe
We are alone in this cold universe
And we will here stay for some time
Until we’ll suffocate with ourselves

 

Pareidolia

Street lights illuminate a vacuum
Your shadow’s getting much more real than you
Your footsteps are trying to run away from you
Everything begins to look like you
For the oddest reason, out of the blue
There are millions, there are millions of you, yeah
You’re not alone anymore
You’re not alone at the right time
Street lights illuminate a vacuum
Your shadow’s getting much more real than you
It’s not so easy to make your fears fade away
Understatement is a new science today
Now everything can be seen on your face
Everything was more simple those days
Now there are millions, there are millions of you
You’re not alone anymore
You’re not alone at the right time
Now what do you think will happen next?
How could I think there is no one like you?

 

8-bit Life

I keep receiving all your dense expressions
Compressed into pictographs
Got a feeling (that) they must be precious .. to you
I am confused.. do you want me to cry or laugh?
I keep hearing all your darkest confessions
They’ve been arriving through the beeps and beats
I guess you want me to use my discretion
but… how can we dance to the stillness and peace.
I keep sensing all your micro-vibrations
I am surrounded by their warmth and breeze
But they don’t let me to regain my patience
Your love, self-love dries up the seas!
I keep seeing all your acts of compassion
Right next to the ignorance
By now I cannot tell the difference between them
If I am wrong then keep away from me
I keep receiving all your dense expressions
Compressed into pictographs
Got a feeling they must be precious
I am confused.. do you want me to cry or laugh?

How could I leave it within?
How could I leave it behind?

I keep scanning all your instant intentions
They arrived here on ephemeral waves
Hope they never will push into fashion
And remain as only shadows in the caves
I keep receiving all your poor expressions
Transformed into some graphs and sheets
Your poor expressions cause my complex regression
Backsliding into bones and bits
I keep receiving all your dense expressions
Compressed into pictographs
Got a feeling they must be precious
I am confused.. do you want me to cry or laugh?

How could I leave it within?
How could I leave it behind?

 

Sangry (Sad and Angry)

You’re not sad
You’re sangry
I can see it beyond your smile
It came suddenly
But I am not surprised
You’re not sad
You’re sangry
I can see it beyond your smile
You’re not sad
You’re s-angry
You’re not sad
You’re sangry
It’s in the back of my mind
Hellfire burns me
When there’s a sadness in your eyes
You’re not sad
You’re sangry

 

Lucky Blood Moon

This is a simple thing, this is a simple thing…
You can’t leave it all alone I can’t leave without constant denials
You can’t leave it all alone I can’t leave without constant denials
This is a simple thing, this is a simple thing…

When all the lights are out – are you still there?
When our luck just ran out – get it out of my mind then

That’s all I remember from those days
We can start to daydream, it’s never too late
We can start to daydream, it’s never too late

You can’t leave it all alone I can’t leave without constant denials
You can be there all alone I cannot let the whole thing die

When all the lights are out – are you still there?
When our luck just ran out – get it out of my mind then

I’m tired, all over, all over again

 

Part-time Prophets

Mistaken it for a good luck again
We get no points for style
Mistaken it for a dream again
One day the Earth will die
And you’ve been so nice
It broke me into pieces
This day was fine

[It’s a chain reaction] No one told us the world is over
[Our delayed reaction] No one told us the world is over

We’re getting mixed signals here
One day the Earth will die
Mistaken it for good luck again
If it’s true, would you cry?
And you’ve been so nice
It broke me into pieces
This day was fine

[It’s a chain reaction] No one told us the world is over
[Our delayed reaction] No one told us the world is over

 

Juvenile Shame

Daylight, bitter time, imitates the good warm fire
Midlife makes you try to resurrect your old desires
Nighttime, sweet and ripe, resonates with past denials
Sometimes we turn away to reconnect with a juvenile shame
… back home, cause your dreams never lead you back home.
Daylight, sweet and ripe, it imitates the past denials
Midlife turns away to resurrect your old desires
It seems like they remain on the line kept in balance
Floating in a realm of their dreams long faded away
… back home, cause your dreams never lead you back home.

 

Look Away

Try to look away
It’s a little too late for this

Maybe you are right?
Now it seems less insane
No one is guilty

And nobody wins…
