tipperottfan Unexpected tracks: Piazole & Starfish. Found this band by (bandcamp) conincidence. I am dumbfounded by the broad spectrum of music on just a single album. What first seemed just to be another conventional rockband, can take you by surprise! Unexpected detours into funk & latin grooves up ahead... 8) Favorite track: Confabulation.

Track Name: Plaese Haalp
Plaese Haalp

You can see downstairs the roofs
Of Gardner street, there’s such a truth
It’s thirty miles till home
I got you for Saturday, guess what it’s going to end that way
Cause mama always shows
She went homeward in a cab, and talks of angels singing mad
She’s driven by a friend

Plaese Haalp
Tommy didn’t hear me, he was in a panic
Gas Tank
The only better place to be was where we couldn’t go now
Stranded
Nobody in the radius that knew any coordinates
Questions
Until we find the way back home

Will we ever find a way out of here no not today
Otherwise we’ll feel sublime nothing different

You can see downstairs the roofs
Of Gardner street, there’s such a truth
It’s thirty miles till home
I got you for Saturday, guess what it’s going to end that way
Cause mama always shows
She went homeward in a cab, and talks of angels singing mad
She’s driven by a friend

Plaese Haalp
The time it flies when there’s nowhere to return to
Gas Tank
And the illusion of seclusion doesn’t make you feel lost now
Stranded
Nobody in the radius that knew any coordinates
Questions
Until we find the way to be

Will we ever find a way out of here no not today
Otherwise we’ll feel sublime nothing different, every time
Will we ever find a way out of here no not today
Otherwise we’ll feel sublime nothing different

You can see downstairs the roofs
Of Gardner street, there’s such a truth
It’s thirty miles till home
I got you for Saturday, guess what it’s going to end that way
Cause mama always shows
She went homeward in a cab, and talks of angels singing mad
She’s driven by a friend

As long time keeps ticking on
You’ll end up right where you belong
Only you can slow it down
Only you can turn it all around
Cause every day’s a dream, and nothing’s as it seems
Hands are on the wheel, You can make it real
You can slow it down, Turn it all around
There’s no going back, the world keeps spinning on
Track Name: Mucho
Setting sun and you walk alone
Every step you take may not be heard
Take your time but don’t look around
You only get one turn before you learn
Look out below

Life’s just a game
Where the longer you play
You learn to guide your way
Time passes by
At the blink of an eye
We’ll have to say goodbye

Proposito de la vida es simple
Pasar y buen rato hasta que el día que te mueres
Vive la vide en el momento presente
Simplemente salir y pasar un buen ranto tonto

Now I know what I need to say
Every morning every single day
Don’t forget what you need to know
You’re alive and that’s a lucky thing
Look out below

Proposito de la vida es simple

Setting sun and you walk alone
Every step you take may not be heard
Don’t forget what you need to know
You’re alive and that’s a lucky thing
Look out below
Track Name: Confabulation
n my empty head I see a voice
Showing me that I can cash in a choice

How is everything? How’s it going? What’s the weather?
Let’s dispense of pleasantries
Now let’s have a real confabulation, you should start it
Tell me what you think I’m thinking
Say it loud so I can listen

Who’s the voice inside my head
Spilling out the words I said

Like a rusty part in an old machine
I will work as long my conscience is clean

Can I take a second to tell a story? You should hear it
There’s a message in between the
Lines of human beings, waiting to say everything
That you want to hear and what you do not want to know, my dear

If you want to take a look inside my head
I’ll meet you there, I’ll meet you there

Who’s the voice inside my head
Spilling out the words I said
Who’s the voice inside my head
Track Name: Turn by Turn
Six times nine divided by your time
Patiently you stretch your minds eye
Twist it, turn it, make it right
Yellow, yellow, match yellow

Perspective puts you in your place
Time is meager, keep up with the pace
Moving, halting, guided by
The red, green, red, green

There’s a way, there’s a means
There’s a solvable equation
There’s a point of view
An algorithmic clue
It’s inside of you

Turn by turn, your thoughts will help you learn
Time by time, you’ll slowly come to find
All the colors fall in line
Track Name: Starfish
Underneath the great beyond
Something distant something far
Calmly proves that nothing’s wrong
We are right where we belong
We turn the light into a sound
We take it with us to underground
Behind the curtains we have find
We think we’re right when we belong

We take a stare into the dark
We’ll never find a better time to start
Something has to give a sign
Eventually our paths align
I know that there will come a time
When everything will all be fine
Don’t take me there don’t cut the line
Cause I’ll be there inside my mind
