Track Name: Nusong
nusong
[vozd]

it's autumn again
time to miss my friend
the colours too bright
to suit a heart that's at night

brown leaves speak of leaving
the yellows are late sunrays
and blues in heart is hidden
the reds - blood-stained feathers
Track Name: Set the Controls [for the Heart of the Sun]
set the controls for the heart of the sun
[vozd + main lyrics by roger waters]

little by little the night turns around
counting the leaves which tremble and turn
lotuses lean on each other in union
over the hills where a swallow is resting
set the controls for the heart of the Sun

over the mountain watching the watcher
breaking the darkness, waking the grapevine
one inch of love is one inch of shadow
love is the shadow that ripens the wine
set the controls for the heart of the Sun

witness the man who arrives at the wall
making the shape of his questions at asking
whether the Sun will fall in the evening
will he remember the lesson of giving?
set the controls for the heart of the Sun

the heart of the Sun

little by little the night turns around
counting the leaves which tremble and turn
lotuses lean on each other in union
over the hills where a swallow is resting
we set the controls for the heart of the Sun

the heart of the Sun
no voice for their Say
no place for they Stay
the heart of the Sun
the place for their Stay
....
witness the Man
witness the Man
at the heart of the Sun

we set the controls for the heart of the Sun
we set the controls for the heart of the Sun
we set the controls for the heart of the Sun
we set the controls for the heart of the Sun
Track Name: Cloudlet
cloudlet
[vozd]

where distant rocks with sky colliding
and fleecy clouds on waves are riding,
a fairy little cloud is huddling,
her hair the rising Sun is fondling.

her gentle skin Sun's rays are stroking -
her red lips wanting now they keep warming.
there're sparkles in her eyes 'cause she's been dreaming:
beyond this cosmic gate her cloudlet love is hidden.

I am yours and you are everything mine
and we are dancing on a tiny child's palm
and if you love and hide it oh this is a crime
but if you now kiss me oh everything's fine

you are mine and I am everything yours
and we are standing on a moonlit void globe
and if we paint the Universe with smiles
then we'll smile and every star will be ours

when heights and straits and clouds all flee
you will find the coveted realm of kings
and when shame and rage and fears recede
enjoy the fairy land of queens
enjoy the fairy land of queens
enjoy the fairy land of queens
Track Name: Rip [That Flip]
rip [that flip]
[vozd]

inside, amid tender eyes,
mood fine, another smooth night,
food wine, a lovely promise for later
but no sign of happiness manipulator...

better Rip Go Steep
Flip that beat
u'd better Sip then Smile
desire not for a while

Rip Go Steep
Flip that beat
u'd better Sip then Smile
and desire not for a while

u'd better rip go sleep
flip that beat
better rip go sleep
flip that beat
u'd better rip go sleep
flip that beat
better rip go sleep
flip that beat

outside among the lonely trees
walk, find, and she will slightly turn:
bodies will nod respectfully,
stretch, hold, believe in love then burn

u'd better Rip Go steep
Flip that beat
u'd better Sip then Smile
desire not for a while
Track Name: Time
time
[vozd]

time comes waved
time sits beside me
unlocks my mind gates
I immerse in its still
see myself cry
my flesh deride

crystal walls entwine me.

time, touch my skin
let me remember
the moments of love
I would be divine
if I could not cry
my mask would stay fine.

crystal walls entwine me.

time, be my friend
so we can stay silent
when She's not around
I will smile when she smiles
be sad when she cries
slip your hand in mine

crystal walls entwine me.
crystal walls entwine me.
crystal walls entwine me.
crystal walls entwine me.
crystal walls entwine me.
crystal walls entwine me.
crystal is my sadness
crystal walls will guide me home
Track Name: Betz Do Brazil
betz do brazil [conventionalities]
[vozd]

there are no Dukes, Marquises, Nobles,
there are no Princes nor such Heroes,
there are no Lovers, Surfers, Cool Guys
who'll ever love you like I feel you.

each time a Nightingale is dying
to bear a Rose - a sign for Lovers,
there's something new and lovely growing
that's independent of our earthly knowing...

so really really truly pretty
of all the candies you're most sweety
of all the stars you are most gleaming
of all the girls you are my Queeny
of all the words I have to tell you
well, none could share how much I love you
you are my really truly pretty
and only friend, so nice and witty...

a day will come when you'll be searching
for our orchid - cosmic and unreal...
send me a note and maybe a tear
and I'll be sure to roll the sphere.

despite the pain and the stupidity,
withstanding fears and frigidity,
my love is stronger than all your denials
and pride can never win this trial.

... and stop being conventional...

Track Name: In the Sun
In The Sun
[vozd]

in the Sun, in the Sun,
in the Sun you will turn...
in the Sun, in the Sun,
in the Sun I will burn...
in the Spring, in the Spring
in the Spring I will not sink down
in the Spring I will sing
your favourite thing, my brink,
in the Spring you'd better dive down
you'd better dive down, baby
you'd better dive down, baby
come with me
you were all, you were the Most,
you were none of these favourite hosts -
hear that spell down the everything down that goes
down the downtown of your love
coins will turn where the ashes burn
coins will turn where the voices hum
stay humdrum - I will have fun
'cause I ain't no dead, I can burn for fun
you'd better dive down, baby
you'd better dive down, baby
come with me

[vozd]

junk American airforce comin' to you
junk American airforce comin' to you
junk American airforce comin' to you
to bomb your town,
to bomb your house,
to kill your children,
to kill your children, yo

free of bad words as i summon my groove
look in my eyes girl - make a smooth route
real freaky creatures endure
bad and sad rhythms - it's a kind of a groove
huddle in the mud, man you have to approve
what in your turn seems an easy escape
right and damn wrong makes it hard to decide
gain or lost profit - no blood on the blade

a shell in the house - inexplicable noise -
it should make us understand what we pick as a choice -
we have to raise a voice instead of raising the ghosts
of evil, of death, of crime, of war
petrol is an issue that serves as a cause
for a motherfucking idiot to start a crusade -
for the riches of the fattening American whores
many innocent lives are just let off to fade.

what's the odds of giving all your love to people
when in turn they hate and beat and kill instead of kissing
what's the odds of guessing how the war will happen
how the war will end up when it is all dead kids' bodies
all we should be doing is turn all bombs to fruities
and bullets into candies so our children can be happy
and all we should be doing is kiss and hug our darlings
and tell them that we love them and that all is well and shining

death on the grades - futures at stake
down on the graves of the eagle enclaves
man is engaged by the vanity fairs
sudden complaints, little silly parades
of the mental disgrace of humanity games
of the mental disgrace of humanity games
who's to blame who's to blame who's to blame who's to blame blame
who's to blame who's to blame who's to blame who is the one
of humanity games

what's the odds of giving all your love to people
when in turn they hate and beat and kill instead of kissing
what's the odds of guessing how the war will happen
how the war will end up when it is all dead kids' bodies
all we should be doing is turn all bombs to fruities
and bullets into candies so our children can be happy
and all we should be doing is kiss and hug our darlings
and tell them that we love them and that all is well and shining

… of immediate heaven-bound stairs… [8]

scary, editing my missions in groove
contemplating insincerity proofs
in a lifetime of emissions of spoof
my majority is people in the mood

me I'm telling ya a bit of a tale
with a little of my blandishing glares
I relinquish my grips on the fair
of immediate heaven-bound stairs
scary....

of immediate heaven-bound stairs
scary....

get ya peace and cause
and try to come over,
find your peace and moss -
even squeeze the boulder,
send your postcards of love
and go south in October,
I love you like I know -
we've crossed them African borders...
get ya peace and cause

send your postcards of love

I love you like I know -
we've crossed them African borders...
we've crossed them African borders...
we've crossed them African borders...

definition is requested when broke -
tell ya buddies that they do got to smoke,
and just like him Genie the Pooh
turns what you got to indisputable truth

all you know is that your soul will get naked
and never ever will u need again to fake it
on the bordercross I am naked
on the bordercross your nails break me
on the bordercross your nails break me
on the bordercross we all feel we make it
on the bordercross - happen with no hatred
on the bordercross - happen with no hatred
on the bordercross we all feel we make it
happen with no hatred
on the bordercross - happen with no hatred
on the bordercross - happen with no hatred

nope we take advice of nobody else
in the path of singularity falls
a suggestion of the magic caress
and a longing for duality, yes…
in the midtime while a lark lay its nest
all the powers of the earth will be summoned to fest
and when even the most staggering pest
raise its filthy horrid hideous head
you will smile and send it right back to rest
since you know that love is laying its nest
you will smile and send it right back to rest
since you know that love is laying its nest

​Loud Cloud
[after Sol Tapado by Thievery Corporation]

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

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
and 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
Pay, mount, and stay outside, outside
Beat basket, join the circle
Beat basket that it will take in the face
It will take it in the face
It will slap you in the face
Take it in the face…
Track Name: About Regine
about regine
[vozd]

As the stars fall,
a major aim it is to let your eyes fall not withdown and withover unto the centre of the Earth.
Regine thought so, as if she could help it... it was so damn back in the years, this feeling, and yet looming
on the daydream every single night. Childhood towards maturity,
reasons beyond,
mission unknown,
legends all on,
recent demands turned into plans,
passionate waters and all those petoches
decently human, still falls asleep.

Walking, walking, walking, she 'been steppin' on the horizon's of her enthusiastic fancie's. Drawers drew
nicies inside, deep within the magical history of the Elms who had once sacrificed, contributed.
Overwhelmed, Regine counted the daisies and took pleasure in the sights of the Dawn. Surely torpid felt
the tiles beneath her feet while she imagined her steps chatting on the temple floor surface - u may
never no, u may never no, u may never no.

Turbit clouds don't exist.
She knew it, confidining in its verity like she kept a secret when she decided to.
And yet, why so nothing could be said about the elluding fact of the perfect evacuation?
Regine needed a king.
This story tells how Regine found him, His Regal Randormality ['His' being His middle name - so that later
Europeans had to twist their tongues unto Regal His Randormality].

Track Name: Face the Rising Sun
​Face The Rising Sun
[vozd]

I've come to face the rising Sun
in your eyes
in your eyes
I pray for you to understand
all my love
all my love
I'm standing on the edge again
on my knees
I'm standing on the edge again
on my knees
I'm running across the alleys
I'm running across the fields
I'm running forth to see you
I see you don't exist
I've come to face the rising Sun
in your feet
in your feet
I stretch my hands and touch your lips
I kiss you
I kiss you
I'm sailing again
in your seas
I'm sailing again again
in your seas
I'm running across the alleys
I'm running across the seas
I'm running forth to see you
I see you don't exist
I'm running across the alleys
I'm running across the seas
I'm running forth to see you
I see you don't exist
I see you don't exist
I see you don't exist
Come on rise Sun and shine Sun
Burn the ice around my heart
Sun kiss me with your loving flame
Burn my shell
Be in her eyes forever
Give life to my dream girl
Don't let her run the whole land
Run the whole land
Be in her eyes forever
Running across the alleys
I'm running across the seas
I'm running forth to see you
I see you don't exist
I'm running across the alleys
I'm running forth to see you
I'm running I'm running backwards
I'm running back to my knees...
