Track Name: Pow
Project your hologram head to the earthquake asking is it real?
It’s been real since always and I can prove it
I can prove it right now

That’s why we gotta go fast fly
Quicker than the angels down to the city
Brave for the battle little star

What do we get when we get there?
Probably blood and pain
What do you say should we start it
Doing like they do it on the radio baby?

I feel so doomed and sick
And I gotta get a good night’s sleep
You can wake me for your love
Just turn it up so I can hear you scream

I never kiss and tell
But you are the american dream
Sundrenched, ya, with grit and sweat
Dressed in tamarindo and tangerine

With your voice guilt tastes like champagne

It’s already half a secret
And there’s nothing I could say
That could keep me from lying like a snake
I’ll write songs for your face if I can’t touch your skin
Just creep in my sleep and let the damage begin boy

See what we get when we get there?
Running for blood and pay
What do you say should we start it?
Do it like they do it on the radio bay bay

I feel so doomed and sick
And I gotta get a good night’s sleep
But you can wake me for your love
Just turn it up so I can hear you scream

I never kiss and tell
But you are the American Dream
Sundrenched, ya, with grit and sweat
Dressed in Tamarindo and Tangerine

You left that boy in a hurry over four years... who’s the artist now?
Grazie mille pour le bracelet
I'll see you under the sea
And my youth
Wasted on online depression

I feel so doomed and sick
But I’m trying hard as I can be
Cuz my heart has caught on fire
Now I got u on my mind
U r gasoline

I never kiss and tell
But you are the American Dream
Sundrenched, ya, with grit and sweat
Just blazing through my life
Come n take me like
Pow pow pow
Track Name: 666 888 333
I can't deal with your face tonight
Hey what is the name of the demon
that cursed me to look like this
With the eyes and the mouth
and the halo and the numbers
I gotta know, I need a name

Gotta run before the flood
Dance to the drum
It feels like a mess now
Well let's delete some
But let's believe some

Not everything is bleak
Bullet trains and moon rocks
It's summer now Shape shifting
That's a wave that would mess you up
Track Name: Pippin
You took that city away from me in a nose bleed
While Pippin is born to the sound of waves
I need more light she said,
Do I still talk in my sleep?
It's a lo-fi statement from me now
Track Name: Sol Hess
Lost a day at the beach for a dirty night. Woke up in a soundcheck to zouk-goth-discopunk. It took me an hour to exist again. But it's ok because I love watching Sol Hess dance. He's an ape and a doctor. Ok, let's start from scratch. I am feeling a little better than usual. NB: Please do not read the lyrics whilst listening to the recordings.
Track Name: Entertainment
I've given up on the stars
I've got enough entertainment
I gave up on books, words and letters
I am entertainment

I've given up on the clouds
I've got enough information
I gave up on endless streaming
I am entertainment

I've given up on everything
I've given up and you and me
I've given up on everyone
I am entertainment
Track Name: O to F
From Opononi to Flin Flon
Track Name: Poli Opposti
Poli Opposti

Just leave that boy girl
You are more than a dancer
The cake is bright but your life is a MF disco

Poli Opposti
Track Name: Drame
Something is moving in the darkness of your heart
You got a stomach ache, but I will pompom sky pray for you
From now on we are yorever foung Wampire
What's another year when we got IV IL IT IR NI TI?
