Track Name: Take this wind as an advice
Take this wind as an advice,
Take this wind as an advice of storms to come

Sing, Hare.
Rejoice; for time will come,
And all of us will ride on its wings


Take this wind as an advice,
Take this wind as an advice of storms to come

And sing, Hare,
And rejoice, for time will come, for you to ride far on its wings

Take me now on your wings
Take me now on your wings

Your heart was made of stone
Your heart was made of stone,
but then you dreamt


Pujant una muntanya, a un lloc recoït,
el pare de Hare, la nina amb la cinta vermella,
fa notar que les fulles dels arbres es mouen i que els animals no fan soroll,
el que sembla una lleugera brisa es l'avís d’una tempesta,
que arribarà i sacsejarà l’equilibri de les terres baixes, amb consequències imprevisibles...

una Hare es una llebre (en anglès)

Pren aquest vent que arriba com un avís de tempesta

El teu cor estava fet de pedra, però després somiares.
Track Name: Sometimes
C’mon baby awake me,
I’m living here on the moon,
The world got far too scary for me,
I’m much better up here that’s for sure,

C’mon, baby,
Just to take my hand,
I’ll show you the best view
Of our brothers caught up in a frenzy,
Up here from the moon

Sometimes, two lovers collide,
Like roaming stars, and the world makes sense for a while
Sometimes, two lovers collide, and by more than chance,
this world makes sense for a while

C’mon baby awake me,
Because I’ll be out of orbit soon,
With a bag full of word, notebooks and sharpened pencils,
And the furry animals I’ve collected in my room

A shadowy voice says; boy, you're just escaping
I can’t deny that sir that’s for sure,
But I'll stay here, cosy and warm,
don't wait for me,
I'll be up here, on the moon

Sometimes, two lovers collide,
Like roaming stars, and the world makes sense for a while
Sometimes, two lovers collide, and by more than chance,
this world makes sense for a while
Track Name: Merry Prayer (Travelling Song)
Hear this song;
It's a merry prayer,
For those travelling a-far to find love and happiness

I heard that you feel sorry,
Don’t be afraid of who you are
Don’t be afraid of who you are
Track Name: Buddy the Cat
Buddy is a cat, a rolling stone cat, an old cat, beaten down, been runned over by some cars twice, spent six of his seven lives already, etc... was born in Glasgow and lived in different houses and then started his adventures around the world...

There you go, with lipstick on your fingers,
From the girl you slept with the night before,
There you go, neither stop or linger,
Thinking who's gonna be your next score

But hey buddy you're so sad, don’t know where to stop or where you at, now,
Hey buddy too bad,
Getting weary and tired of hangin’ round

Young kids, you don’t know,
that I was the king of suburbia,
Never needed a key to open a door, not me,

There you go with lipstick on your fingers,
From the girl you’ve slept with the night before

You don’t know, how lucky I am, I’ve fought against the rats of suburbia, beaten the dogs in Malibu,
You don’t know how lucky I am…

Buddy says, I've been there, been here and back,
I could rob a bank for you, I'd do anything, just name it...
(…) etc


Buddy, el gat, va caminant pel carrer, amb pintallavis als dits (a les potes) de la noia amb qui vas dormir la nit anterior,
Va caminant, sense aturarte o mirar enrera, pensant quina sera la teva pròxima diana

Però Buddy, ja n’estas cansat,
No saps on aturar-te ni a on et trobes,
Buddy, ja n’estas cansat d’anar com una bala perduda pel món

Niñatos, no en teniu ni idea,
Jo era el rei de suburvia,
Mai vaig neccesitar una clau per obrir una porta
Niñatos, no en teniu ni idea,
Quan vosaltres arribeu jo ja hi he estat varies vegades

Però Buddy ja n’estas molt cansat,
D’anar com un rodamón pel món

No sabeu quanta sort que he tingut, em veieu aquí vell i fet pols i em compadiu...
No en teniu ni idea…
He lluitat i vençut les rates de Suburbia...
He destrossat els gossos que viuen a Malibú...

No sabeu quanta sort tenc...
Track Name: The night reality met the dream
(the marzipan man stories starts with this story)

The hurricane came to a place called the lowlands,
Home of the marzipan man,
Who’s fragile like a child,
And lives in cold and marshy forests,
where reality meets the dream

The hurricane came without any advice or warning,
Set free all the loonies in town
Who where seen carrying an icon up the river
The night reality met the dream
Track Name: The Magik Ribbon
Put around your waist that ribbon,
And the swollen river won't march you down
Go up stream, like you’ve been dreaming of,
And the swollen river won’t march you down

Put around your waist that ribbon,
Made of feathers and sand, and the pebbles you took from the ground
And go up stream, like you’ve been dreaming of,
And you little girl, will reach the golden crown

Hold on little girl, move your head around
What did you see little girl? When you moved your head around?
Track Name: Madrigal
Awake says the madrigal,
Facing the sun,
Take one step forward,
With free hands and curled toes

Awake, says the madrigal,
Rain drops from the sun,
Take two steps forward,
Cheat the thief and the goat,

Awake

Awake, said the magician,
Dream the dream on this stone,
Place green and purple stones around her
Track Name: Dusk hill
Meet me dawn in the town hall,
The hour the mist grows thick
Meet me dawn in the town hall,
The hour the ships come in,

Drink from the well in Dusk Hill,
It brings back the memories

When the world was locked inside a seashell,
Stars had eyes and ears
When the world was locked like a seashell,
Stars had eyes in tears

Drink from the well in Dusk Hill,
It brings back the memories

Drink from the well in Dusk Hill,
Drink with the cup full to the brim
Drink from the well in Dusk Hill,
Drink for the times you live in

Drink from the well in Dusk Hill,
It brings back the memories


Truth brings me sorrow and misery,
All your gold is sick


etc etc
Track Name: Landscapes
Landscapes (the river dreams landscapes)

My love is wild. My love is free,
Once the river dreamt the sea

My love is kind, my love is sweet
Once the river dreamt the sea

I don’t aim low
I don’t aim low at all
Highest peak no one has reached

Some say you’ll fall
Some say you’ll crawl
Some say you’re born au parlez…

My love says why won’t rain come near?


I don’t aim low
I don’t aim low at all
Highest peak no one has reached

Some say you’re lost
From the moment you’re born
Some are just born au parlez…

La menor/A minor
Fa # menor/F # minor

Crash goes down to the station,
Inside his headphones,
The Cure is playing a song,

Crash, rides a 20 bits motorbike,
With 1 million colours to choose from,
And he repeats his mantra, taken from self-help books;

-With my help you’ll see all the rats from above-

Re/D
Fa # menor/F # minor

And says; -I live inside a movie-,
-Behaviour research, computer world-

La menor/A minor

Crash got two credits this morning,
and he’s entitled to ten extra bonus points,
He grew up on the ladder,
of this world made of platforms
Where the rat on top surveys the rats from above

Crash , he is falling from grace…
Crash feels all alone…


Looking for love and feeling lost?



Crash, it took one second this morning,
to miss the right button and for his stock options to drop,
Crash was out of trend by afternoon
Got a discount sticker attached to his front

Crash…he’s falling from grace

he’s falling…
he’s falling…


Crash va a cap a l’estació de servei,
Dins els seus auriculars,
The Cure està tocant una cançó

Crash condueix una moto de 20 bits,
Amb un milió de colors per escollir
I repeteix el seu mantra, recollit de llibres d’autoajuda
"Amb la meva ajuda, veuràs totes les rates desde damunt"

I diu; visc dins una pel-licula anomenada
"Control Del Comportament, Món Computadora"

Crash va aconseguir dos crèdits aquest matí,
I te dret a 10 punts de bonus extra
Va crèixer a una escala,
D’aquest món fet de plataformes,
La rata amunt de tot vigila a totes les rates d’avall

Crash està caient de gràcia,
Crash se sent molt sol

-buscant amor? Et sents perdut?-

Crash! Només va neccesitar 1 segon per equivocar-se de botó,
I per les seves stock options a caure,
Crash estava passat de moda aquesta tarda, I li han enganxat un tiquet de descompte al front

Crash està caient en picat

Caient... caient...

Ja se que es culpa meva... però m’esperava més...
Track Name: Billy the fox
Billy the fox hide away at the start of the hunting season
Lived under a bridge on Battersea pondering on the reason why
There was something he would not dare to do:
Just to take a look around
It’s not hard to understand he felt like a stranger in this town

Billy the fox hide away at the start of the hunting season
Which for him was every day, since he was born in a fox family of strong beliefs, stiff upper lip, etc
Play your part son. etc…

He used to care, “but a lot of love has brought me here”
-Your beautiful love and your double standards-

Let me dance for a while, let me play for a while, let me imagine how my life would be being one of them…
See me dad know doing the fandango

Violin enters… Billy dances… Billy pictures a scene…

Billy the fox gets dizzy, too much champagne…

He puts his glasses on and a fancy costume, wears a mask,
I’m gonna go there, to the human hunters party, to the fox hunting
At 5pm,
Gonna have a nice cup of tea, with cookies, and all the rest

This guy has a strange voice, a strange accent -say the people at the party, delighted- how charming!

One, two, three, four (Billy coming into the party)

Billy the fox hide away at the start of the hunting season…

-voices- -people in the party, surrounding Billy-
Track Name: The creature (that lives on top of the fire place)
Heard some scratching some rumble rhythmic noise

Sawing
They cut down the big tree;

Where it used to live,

This is how it went; this is how it all turned out
She met by the fire bed a little creature that was standing there,
The creature was small, sly looking eyes, with a strange kind of brown colour

The little creature pointed at the little picture behind the fire place,
Said look behind the little picture on top of the fire place,
Tell me what you see there,
A picture of your whole family…
Is it a picture of your family?

The creature on top of the fire place lives in the same emotional state,
All the time,
Lives behind the picture frames of a family who thinks its its own, but has never met…
Track Name: No students turned up
14. No students turned up

In the classroom today, no students turned up,
For they found a way, through the homework given yesterday
In the classroom today, no students showed up,
For they went through a page, of the homework given yesterday

Mi sol si,
(Those were the notes that the teacher showed in class)

And the sky fell down below,
Dissolved into the sea, clouds dive below

Mi sol si,
And the sky fell down below
Clouds dived into the sea,
And searched for precious stones

In the classroom today, no students turned up
For they found a way,
Through the homework given yesterday,

In the classroom today, no students showed up,
And the teacher scratched his head,
Went throught the notes from yesterday’s class

(And when she/he sang mi sol si),
Highways jumped and the mountains fell,
Sang with birds in harmony,
Sang with rocks and falls

Mi sol si,
The world falls,
The world stops,
Then you construct it from within,
with no need for precious stones
