This is a great CD!! [minus the two i already posted] Where female pronouns are used, just switch "woman" with man, "she" with he.

Cobra and Phases Group Play Voltage in the Milky Night by Stereolab Copyright Island Music http://www.stereolab.co.uk

people do it all the time

fragile rare occasion
out of chaos a creation
binding into one form
lucid drunkeness
aiming truth and openess
baby you are a joy
I want you free when you grow boy
revive the old idea that we carry

binding into one form
lucid drunkeness
aiming truth and openess
baby you are a joy
nothingless
truth and openess
nothingless
but truth and openess

revive the old idea that we carry

the free design

Where it had been left
hundreds of years ago
extract from the depth
is but a setting sun paradise is scace
in this light that won't shine
what is our earthly task
but a worthy design?

some held it in sight
for scattered it may have been
they're ready to fight
in a priceless inkling
the request is here
ready to resurrect
what else can we do but recover the project?

our earthly design
can be so detached
what crushes our desire
not to be trapped
when the higher spheres
tell us to and not to
everyone agrees
demanding more veto
our earthly design
can we be so detached
what crushes our desire
not to be trapped?

blips drips and strips

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

but I go on,
dawning light,
task of hope

???
dawning light,
task of hope
???

at last dare to raise my eyes,
I saw the ship in the stars
strong of glittering fleet,
bringing light to the new born

I pick up by the handful
the somber heap at my feet
eyes closed to see the hopeful
trusting my deepest instinct

at last dare to raise my eyes,
I saw the ship in the stars
strong of glittering fleet,
bringing light to the new born

in a dawn light,
task of hope,
these are stars

Italian Shoes Continuum (translation)

Pursue the
Natural
Not the sorrow
Of his/its wings
He/it returns

Leave it
In the veins
To run like
The water of the Seine
His/its path

new realities are conditions
much to little for us to suffer
because we don't know any better
there are a hundred ways to fall in step

new realities are conditions
much to little for us to suffer
because we don't know any better
there are a hundred ways to fall in step
because for the past two hundred years
the wine drunk and the freedom proclaimed
o are dubious and laughable
waiting to yield a new use of life
scatter,
scatter brained by
the sins,
sins of silence
scatter,
scatter brained by
the sins,
sins of silence
scatter,
scatter brained by
the sins,
sins of silence
scatter,
scatter brained by
the sins,
sins of silence
scatter,
scatter brained by
the sins,
sins of silence

a knife
to cut the root
the root
of ignorance

The Spiracles (translation)

The light of autumn days
Penetrating irreparably and without violence
The autumn light, delicate in its incandescence
It glows like a force which moves the soul


The light of autumn days puts the darker shadows on display
that can recapture themselves
The autumn light that aspires to transcendence,
It dazzles like a force that uncaps the soul.

~

Velvet Water (translation)
See the wave hollowing out like an ember in the wind
there you go it's here that time comfortably escapes
in moments
When the time that passes that gets lost and never finds itself
it's the light of the dark stare that guides my steps
useless struggle.
and still The swimmer is no longer scared
when it reveals itself he dives beneath the light
the dazzlement he's born in the stars
in the naked-bodied flame where the wave hollows itself
is ripped from the night it's the naked-bodied flame
where shines the soul the one which scintillates the soul
of the time vested in time is vested in
of the naked-bodied flame there shines a flame
the swimmer is no longer scared
he dives beneath the light
[lives in the elements lost in the sea his mouth wants the salt]

~

Blue Milk
It is the image that lives in the blood
It gives birth eternally,obliterates all life
Fusion of universal worlds
>From spirit and blood
Source of happiness
Yes,it's the spirit of life
Where's the father
Where is his voice
The other that one loves
One's window that mingles and joins the sentiments
Running toward the sea,
Gives you an end and a beginning
Recognize the submerged call
The connection in death that is the spirit of life.

~

caleidoscopic gaze

all the women
who understand
how natural
and good it is
to bare all clothes
and bring the smile of knowledge,
try the freedom
that comes with it

with a smile,
trumpets and drums
the desire
for meaning comes,
with a smile,
trumpets and drums
the desire
for meaning comes,
...

roaring inside her woman and anger
roaring inside her woman and ire

roaring inside her woman and anger
roaring inside her woman and ire

~

Strobo Acceleration (translation)

Where is the emancipation of a woman
sheltered in her quarters
why want to protect our ladies
hide their bodies apologetically
still it's a good thing
freedom
at the deepest of sensation

Where is the emancipation of woman
a glance of man
does not throw daggers
a sigh of a man
does not cast a flame
is she so frail that even words
shatter her into a thousand pieces
free expression
with a thick neck
the mind where vibrates what is most fair
where is the emancipation of woman

~

The Emergency Kisses
what I wouldn't give to be once more
sitting on a bench at the park with you
the bottom of my heart was radiating
and ther all the colors
a revelation
time stopped
and then I saw how desireable your lips are
the impalpable became matter
it huddled up against the void
tenderness is finite
the violent caress which awakens
in my topsy-turvey being
an enigma

~

come and play in the milky night

led astray
before the
fragile defense of words
come and stay
bring the stars
play in the milky night

led astray
before the
fragile defense of words
come and stay
bring the stars
play in the milky night
