Lyrics

Tidal Mental Head

Take me into another land
I’m drowning in this tidal mental head
When I’m looking too far away
I just can’t see what is right here
I keep stumbling along the way

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

So I keep going round and round
I wonder where I’ve lost my crown
I need to rest upon my throne
I’m tired of following rainbows
Through the way I’ve broken all my bones

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

Now it’s time to open eyes
To this reality that I am in
Now it’s time to be the dream I have
It’s time to put me into effect

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Now I know it’s time to fight,
Guess I have to move right now

​​If I stop for a while
Nothing changes outside
Would you notice the difference
Between what I was yesterday and what I’m now?

Sometimes I feel like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the streets
Oh, oh, oh

I picked up a cotton thread in an empty corridor
When I tried to change its shape
I knew that its essence would stay the same

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

I’m toasting a marshmallow
It’s so sweet and I’m so callow
I wish I could change my flavour
Without changing myself, without being someone else

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Oh, oh, oh

This feeling of uncertainty
Seems to fill up everything
Gonna expand till there’s no air to breathe

I’ve been going solo for so long
I’m walking alone and it’s so cold

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

This sense of misunderstanding
Makes me unable to talk with myself
And maybe that’s the worst thing that I’ve done

I’m almost faded and can’t see the light
And so tired, I’m unable to fight

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

I’m running, I’m fighting just to keep myself alive
I’m running, just running trying to reach something someone somehow
I’m running, I’m yelling just to let someone hear me
I’m crying while I’m smiling ’cause I just want to be free now

I’ve been getting nowhere for too long

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong in me and now I’m scared by everything
I don’t know how to get out
Don’t know how to get away

I need air but there’s no space
Something went wrong int me and now I’m scared by everything
Don’t know how to get away

Risia, you are so sweet, oh, I love you so much
Risia, you are so sweet, when you blink your eyes
Risia, you are so sweet, when you mispronounce the words you say
Risia, you are so sweet, would you be my friend?

Hug me, oh, hug me
Cuddle me and caress me
Make me smile, psychoanalyse me
Do it, and I’ll do it for you in return

Risia, you are so sweet, when you try to sing but don’t succeed
I love it when you grin and the way you feel free
Oh, you are so sweet, even when you drive me mad
’cause you are so sweet, can I be your friend?

Hug me, oh, hug me
Cuddle me and caress me
Make me smile, psychoanalyse me
Do it, and I’ll do it for you in return

Will you try to understand me?
Relieve me and make me happy?
If you need me to help thee
Be sure that I’ll be there to save your ass

Now I realise my past is not here
Even though I lived it, even though I saw it.
I’m asking myself what I’ve done wrong
I’m wondering what I can do to erase it

Now I feel so cold looking outside
Because I’ve tried the best I could
But it seems useless

I’ve been waiting for so long and now I’m ready
To change my lot ’cause I’ve noticed, I’ve noticed
I need more, I need more, I need more

Do you feel the same? Are you happy today?
I see you so far but I’d want you right here
The fear all around is beating you down
Oh… what can I do to save you?

But sometimes my rage comes out
’cause you’ve left me here
And I am alone now
But I’ll get trough somehow

I’ve been waiting for so long and I’m ready
To change my lot ’cause I’ve noticed, I’ve noticed
I need more, I need more, I need more

I’ve been waiting for so long
And now I’m ready to change my lot

I’ve been waiting here alone for the whole day
The air is cold and my hands are dry
I heard a song that reminds me that he’s gone away
Away away away away away

I just want to go outside
Under these grey clouds
All I wish tonight
Is to have no doubts

’cause everyday is passing me by
And every time I wake up I don’t know why
’cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

I’m trying to but I can’t appease my rage
My hood is already soaking wet
Heavy rain is falling, I just sit and wait
I wait I wait I wait I wait I wait

So now it’s raining on me
but I don’t want to move
I just want to sit here
till I’ve got flu

’cause everyday is passing me by
And everytime I wake up I don’t know why
’cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

All the raindrops on me are going to dry someday
I am going to miss them as I miss his face
And every time I hurt I’m going to miss that too
’cause every pain I feel teaches me something new

We Are Like Coloured Moths Towards The Sunlight

​​If I stop for a while
Nothing changes outside
Would you notice the difference
Between what I was yesterday and what I’m now?

Sometimes I feel like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the streets
Oh, oh, oh

I picked up a cotton thread in an empty corridor
When I tried to change its shape
I knew that its essence would stay the same

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

I’m toasting a marshmallow
It’s so sweet and I’m so callow
I wish I could change my flavour
Without changing myself, without being someone else

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Sometimes I feel ​like I’m nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Oh, oh, oh

Take me into another land
I’m drowning in this tidal mental head
When I’m looking too far away
I just can’t see what is right here
I keep stumbling along the way

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

So I keep going round and round
I wonder where I’ve lost my crown
I need to rest upon my throne
I’m tired of following rainbows
Through the way I’ve broken all my bones

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights?
Guess I’m not the only one

Now it’s time to open eyes
To this reality that I am in
Now it’s time to be the dream I have
It’s time to put me into effect

Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh
Reveries take me so high
I don’t have a place to hide
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Now I know it’s time to fight,
Guess I have to move right now

I swam in your blue eyes and now I’m drowning
Ryan, oh Ryan
I thought we were together but I’m lonely
Ryan, oh Ryan

I might have maybe idealised
and thought that I would never ever leave you
I might have missed relevant signs,
will I not ever see you again?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I like walking without direction
But I’m tired, I’m tired
And I thought you’d consider this affection
Well I am, oh I am…

It’s been sunny this afternoon
but I’m still a bit under the weather
It would be nice under the moon
To hold your hand and take you where I am

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

Ryan, walk next to me
Ryan, didn’t you see
Fire burning the leaves
Fire around you and me?

Ryan, oh Ryan
Stay with me on this island
Ryan, oh Ryan
I just thought that you would like me too

I’m dry, oh, I’m dry
I’m drained by this fake fire
Ryan, oh Ryan
Should I call you once just once again?
I just can’t get you out of my head
Would you please reply to my text… bitch

​I should be at my piano writing songs
That’s what I better do
But I need to work to eat
Nobody’s paying my bills

People don’t buy my CDs
They listen to all music for free
Though they enjoy it
They don’t want to pay a fee

But how can I make more If I don’t have bread to eat
How can I ignore my primary needs?

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

I reckon I’m quite good at this
Would you pardon my modesty?
I have studied for years
As you’ve done for your degree

But why don’t I deserve any coin for my deeds
Have you ever heard that they don’t grow on trees

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

Yes I’m tired, after this twelve hour shift
Yes I’m tired of a job that doesn’t fit
Yes I’m tired of complaining about this
Yes I’m tired of people not giving a shit
Yes I’m tired of all this competition
I’m tired subject to this position
I’m tired with no recognition
I’m tired of feeling shit

And if you want more know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be

All the beauty that we used to be
It’s over, it’s over
Burying flames of our eternity
We’re under the burden
Of our little insecurities,
We’re like pollen in the wind
Looking for a flower to die on
Wavering in discontent

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We’re tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

Little clouds of joy that we would breathe
Were what made us blunder
Running hand in hand and carelessly
On our hope we stumbled
Wearing out our sweetest souvenirs
Thrown like petals in the stream
Festival of new lives to plunge in
In which you’re a distant dream

Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
I’m lighter, I’m lighter…

I would have rested peacefully
Until the breeze would call me forth
While snow is falling on this grief
I’m walking to my own bright sun
So why should I be looking back at you, now?

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We’re tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

I’m lighter, I’m lighter…

Why do I keep falling like a dickhead
Fantasising on a smile and knowing nothing else

And I would surely hit a tree cause I see nothing else but thee
I would meander in the streets till I have your fucking hand on me

But I should know this has no shit to do with you
I’m just used to fucking my head up when I’m living in autarchic solitude
And all the efforts I have made to attain some grace for me would vanish soon
I’m screwed cause I fixed my mind on you

What do I know about what’s inside your face
And chest and belt and underwear and in your head your hair?
Only one week after I first heard your name
Beautiful name, a shame it’s not my name, your name

I would be stung by a millions bees
If I could taste your sweet honey
I would drown deep into the sea
Cause probably I would forget to breathe

But I should know this has no shit to do with you
I’m just used to fucking my head up when I’m living in autarchic solitude
And all the efforts I have made to attain some grace for me would vanish soon
Whether with or without you
If I win or if I lose
If I get a kiss I’m too
Slap me please cause I’m a fool
