Track Name: The Chanson of a Pervert
I wish I had forgotten
The things I heard in a bar
The rumours of your basement
And talk about your boudoir

I’d heard your name many times
And met some people you’d see
Your boyfriends looked like my sister
Your girlfriends looked like me

This time of year
I can’t be here
If you’re still young
There’ll be no sun

Life was unclear
Until last year
You’re not so young
There’s still no sun

I often walk past your house
It’s not so far from my home
My vague ideas of its splendor
May be too monochrome

By now you must have forgotten
That you’d been warned of me
Now you’re what you thought I was
You are what I’ll never be

This time of year
I disappear
If you’re still young
There’ll be no sun

Life was unclear
Until last year
You’re not so young
There’s still no sun
Track Name: Escape
I’ve been planning this for a month
Soon I will be out
Soon I will be out
of this place

There are many gunmen
And they must not see me
And they must not notice
And they must not notice
My escape

I’ll cross the border
Unknown, in disguise
Now I’m just someone
They don’t recognize

Through barbed wire
and through the snow
It is not far from here
And I try to reach it alive
I will find my life
in exile

I hear someone shouting
And a gunshot then another
Now I hope they cannot catch me
I avoid the bullets
In the dark

I’ll cross the border
Unknown, in disguise
Now I’m just someone
They don’t recognize

Across the river
Now I’m almost there
The no man’s land
The land of nowhere

My escape
My exile
I’m unknown
In disguise

I’ll cross the border
Unknown, in disguise
Now I’m just someone
They don’t recognize

Across the river
Now I’m almost there
The no man’s land
The land of nowhere
Track Name: Waveforms
Side B
I’ll play more sounds
for you to enjoy
These yé-yé tunes are
brighter, lighter and bloodier

See what they sold me
under the counter yesterday
It sounds like Verdun
and it looks like James Dean

I see people through the window
They all seem to fade
Someone’s standing in the corner
Excited and afraid

Waves in the air
Make houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me

Waves everywhere
All houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me

When a young man shot me
with an electric guitar
I decided to use
an intonarumori myself

I saw objects in the sky
In my early days
All the sounds from Mars and Venus
Were like gamma rays

Waves in the air
Make houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me

Waves everywhere
All houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me

See the waveforms everywhere
See the waveforms everywhere
See the waveforms flying in the air

Waves in the air
Make houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me

Waves everywhere
All houses tremble
All these waveforms
Abduct me
Conduct me
Track Name: Streets of Sound
Are those noises crushing me
I can’t escape, I’m falling
Running through the streets of sound
Uncovered and defenseless
Through the many waves of noise
I hear a distant call

Moment of tranquility
I hear my thoughts and feelings
Running through the silent streets
Uncovered and defenseless

Then the sound is here again
The noises make me fall
Are those noises crushing me
I can’t escape, I’m falling
Track Name: The War to End War
I was sent here
by a president or a governement
I was sent here
by someone who I’d never met
I am here
to defend some strangers’ interests
They’re the ones who should be here
and clean their own mess

In this chaos I don’t know who’s
on my side and who’s against me
In this chaos I don’t know
who or what I’m fighting for
The sky looks gray and brown
just like this pool of mud
There is something red,
I hope it isn’t my own blood

This war like the next war
is a war to end war

In this chaos I don’t know who’s
on my side and who’s against me
In this chaos I don’t know
who or what I’m fighting for
I am here
to defend some strangers’ interests
They’re the ones who should be here
and clean their own mess

This war like the next war
is a war to end war
Track Name: 200 Kilometres from Purgatory
Many days later
I walked past a village
It looked abandoned
But I knew I was not alone

I saw many footprints there
I saw many footprints there
I saw footprints
heading towards the woods

The current inhabitands
don’t understand this land
They feel strange things
but don’t know their origin

I see echoes in the sky
I see echoes in the sky
I see echoes scattered in the sea

Silence
Silence in the valley
Sounds
Sounds in the mountains

Many hours later
I woke up in a barn
I looked out of the door
and saw many forms of life

I saw planets in the sky
I saw planets in the sky
I saw different planets in the morning

Silence
Silence in the earth
Sounds
Sounds in the sky

I saw a girl
with the cross of Saint Peter
She was standing on a hill
Listening to the echoes

I see echoes in the sky
I see echoes in the sky
I see different echoes in the morning

Flames shine
Flames in the horizon
I see the towers
I imagined long ago
Flames shine
Not what I thought at first
Flames shine
Flames in the horizon

Then I looked up
Up through the skies
and saw that space
was covered with blood
The disappearing ship
on its way to the future
I see the towers
The towers in the horizon
I saw that space
was covered with blood

Silence
Silence in the earth
Sounds
Sounds in the sky

Many days later
When I had seen the mountains
I saw the village
It looked abandoned
I saw the towers
The towers in the horizon
I saw that space
was covered with blood
I saw the planets
I heard the echoes

Silence
Silence in the valley
Sounds
Sounds in the mountains
Many days later
I’m still walking
I realize
I’m still at the starting point
Track Name: Ghosts of the Old World

Track Name: The Years
19 years since the last time I was here
In the village I once called my hometown
19 years since the last day of my life
I was taken somewhere east from here

Everything looks dead to me
In the hometown that is not my home
Everything looks just the same
I can’t see myself living here

I will leave this town behind
And erase it from my mind

15 years since 1945
When suddenly I was alive
15 years since I walked into the city
And my years of wandering began

Someone lives in my old house
Hoping not to hear about its past
I’m looking at it from afar
Then it’s buried
in my faintest memories

Now one final look behind
I will leave this town behind
