INNER SLEEVE BACK (lyrics)
01. MOON
When you fall from hi-end mission
And end without sound
Stand up and feel for ammunition
Both feet on the ground
 
And some say: kneel down
That moon’s too high for you
But stand up and breathe out
Breathe in and be a balloon!
 
When you reach your high position
And you are looking around
See that we all love you
We’re a fan of your sound
 
And some say: kneel down
That moon is too high for you
But stand up and breathe out
Breathe in and be a balloon!
 
 
02. AWESOME
The city sleeps 
We are wandering the canals
The water chimes our romance
We make wonders of ourselves 
Never been so here and now 
Your smiling is burning in my eyes 
Not to fade into this darkness 
Not even then when I go blind 
And who will say that I am mad
Fantasies in my big hat 
The stars that look at us instead 
Boats will take us to our bed 
 
A we so you 
A we so me 
(This is awesome, we are awesome 
you and me)
A we so you 
A we so me 
(This is awesome, pretty awesome 
you and me)
A we so you! 
A we so me! 
(This is awesome, we are awesome 
you and me)
 
The Irish Coffees in the bar 
Made us open up our hearts 
No sleep until we are apart 
The bed is leaving for the start 
And who will say that I am mad 
Fantasies in my big hat
The stars that look at us instead 
Boats will take us to our bed
 
 
03. FAMILY, IT’S OUR BLOOD
What a show
Today I saw beauty
And all I know
Your face is smiling to me
 
This is our life
Glowing up
Heat this balloon
It’s going up
 
So hi
There you are
Our veins are like rivers
Coming from the same top 
Your beauty makes us givers
 
This is our life 
Glowing up 
It’s a river
 
It’s our blood
It’s our life
And this love
Has lifted off
From the start
Will our love
Never leave you and me
Never leave …
 
And every minute that our lives begin
It goes on, it flows on
It goes on, again
It’s our blood
It’s our life
And this love
Has lifted off
From the start
Will our love
Never leave you and me
It’s our blood
It’s our life
And this love
Has lifted off
 
 
04. POWERLACK
Say something, make a mark now,
It’s all in your hands. 
That hesitating, opinion shading 
I can not understand 
I can not understand
Don’t you see that, the sheep are pushing 
Each other to the fence
And that behind the iron lining 
lies the bottomland
 
Oh my lord, the water is breaking 
A million babies, dancing and shaking
Playpen cities, popping and a rolling
This is crazy, are we really awake?
 
Cause you 
Lack the power to make 
The changes
Cause you 
Lack the power to make 
These changes
 
Do something, make a mark now
This land is your land
A levitation, drifting nation
Dare to burn the sand 
Don’t you see the people rushing 
Along the streets alone
Seeking for a great conductor
Building a peoples home
 
Oh my lord, the water is breaking 
A million babies, dancing and shaking
Playpen cities, popping and a rolling
This is crazy, are we really awake?
Cause you 
Lack the power to make 
The changes
Cause you 
Lack the power to make 
These changes
 
 
05. HOLE IN YOUR HEAD
You have a hole in your head 
You have a hole in your head 
Don’t forget that I said
You have a hole in your head 
 
When I look through it I see
When I look through it I see
The room where you want to be
But your eyes are closed
 
You are sleepwalking
You are sleepwalking
And no one else will ring
Because you took away the bell
And you took away the phone
And you took away the door
And you took away the house
And you forgot where you hid it
 
 
06. MAKE WISHES
You have these great ideas
Hear! The street is listening
They. Will awake us here
The morning will be singing
 
New! Thoughts that jumped
Out of your head
While the rest was still in bed
And the pieces came right falling in place
 
Make your wishes and blow 
(Here you go, so much better than the 
day before)
Make your wishes and blow 
(Here you go, so much better than the 
day before)
 
You said remove the top
Spit on the fire that is burning
Then if it doesn’t stop
The morning will be singing:
 
Change! All these rules 
That aren’t yours
Here and there blocking the doors
And the pieces come right falling in place
 
Make your wishes and blow 
(Here you go, so much better than the 
day before)
Make your wishes and blow 
(Here you go, so much better than the 
day before)
 
 
 
07. SOMETHING NEW
Things may go different than you think
Sometimes I fall in and out of sync
When I am down I search for anything laying around 
 
Sometimes I fall in and out of sync
It happens easy with a drink
When we lie down I search for anything laying around 
Something new
Or again you
Will I find you again?
 
The day that love fell on the floor
Peeking through the small holes in 
the door
When we are down we search for anything laying around
 
Something new
Something new
Will I find you again?
 
 
08. SORRY
Yeah I’m sorry for everything you have seen
So sorry for who I have been
So sorry for never thinking of you
 
Yeah I’m sorry for all the things I have done
So sorry for what went wrong
So sorry you had to live this through
 
I can only say that I was dumb
Thought that loving was this shade of numb
Never thought of taking care of you
Stopped whenever you wanted to go through
Can it be that I was born a dick
Thinking shame was a sort of foreign trick
Yeah I am sorry 
 
Yeah I’m sorry for everything you have seen
So sorry for who I’ve been
So sorry for never thinking of you
 
I can only say that I was dumb
Thought that loving was this shade of numb
Never thought of taking care of you
Stopped whenever you wanted to go through
Can it be that I was born a dick
Thinking shame was a sort of foreign trick
Yeah I am sorry 
 
Yeah I’m sorry for every word I have said
And sorry for going straight to bed
Now most of all for being sorry to you all day long
 
 
09. I CAN BE WHO I WANT
You sit on the fat boy 
He’s always there
And blame the air con 
For the freezing air
And I hear what you say 
But I am not listening 
 
 
 
 
 
Because I don’t need you to make me feel bad about myself
That’s pretty well covered 
By me
 
You, shitting on the fat boy 
There is always one
And blame for the weather 
When the sun has not shone
 
Because I don’t need you to make me feel bad about myself
That’s pretty well covered
By me
 
I can be who I want
I must not be who I am not
Who I am I have forgot
I can be who I want
I can be who I want
I can be who I want
I can be who I want
 
 
10. INKING BLACK
I am inking black
I am inking black
I can’t draw back to the white I had
My thoughts are going mad
I am inking black
 
I am inking blue
I am inking blue
I can’t go back to be with you
How I wish I knew 
I am inking blue
 
I am inking you
 
 
11. HOME
Since I have known you life goes well
Since I have known you life goes well
You have saved me from a hell
May this last for ever more
No more demons at the door
 
And the peace is in our home
It will not leave us alone
I take your image in my mind
Let my heart not become blind
 
Let my heart not become
Let my heart not become blind
 
The roads are always long
The roads are always long
Where you come from may be wrong
And what you left may not be right
Keep the love right by your side
 
And the peace is in our home
It will not leave me alone
I take your image in my mind
Let my heart not become blind
 
Let my heart not become
Let my heart not become blind
Let my heart not become
Let my heart not become blind

Truly wonderful album! Love listening to it.

| Peter Popps 21-08-2020 19:28

I really... really adore & love it!!!!!!!

| Sabine Septer 21-08-2020 10:23

Heerlijke plaat, prachtige stem en teksten. Stem doet mij denken aan Lou Reed, Cohen, Tom Waits, niet de minsten. Teksten zijn warm en oprecht en authentiek. Deze plaat draai ik heel graag tijdens illustreren, koken, of zo maar heel hard om mee te gaan in de sfeer. Kopen en grijs draaien!

Die stem...!

| Jantine Kraaijeveld 20-08-2020 00:48
