Hunter

If travel is searching
and home has been found

I’m not stopping

I’m going hunting
I’m the hunter
I’ll bring back the goods
but I don’t know when

I thought that I could organize freedom
how scandinavian of me

(Icelandic part)
thegar hann bidur eftir mer

(Hopelandic part)
hann can

you sussed it out, didn’t you?

you could smell it
so you left me on my own
to complete the mission
now i’m leaving it all behind

I’m going hunting
I’m the hunter…

(you just didn’t know me!)

(you just didn’t know me!)

Árvore querida!

As árvores

As árvores são fáceis de achar
Ficam plantadas no chão
Mamam do sol pelas folhas
E pela terra
Também bebem água
Cantam no vento
E recebem a chuva de galhos abertos
Há as que dão frutas
E as que dão frutos
As de copa larga
E as que habitam esquilos
As que chovem depois da chuva
As cabeludas, as mais jovens mudas
As árvores ficam paradas
Uma a uma enfileiradas
Na alameda
Crescem pra cima como as pessoas
Mas nunca se deitam
O céu aceitam
Crescem como as pessoas
Mas não são soltas nos passos
São maiores, mas
Ocupam menos espaço
Árvore da vida
Árvore querida
Perdão pelo coração
Que eu desenhei em você
Com o nome do meu amor.

Maria Bethânia

Everybody knows that our cities were built to be destroyed
You get annoyed, you buy a flat, you hide behind the mat
But I know she was born to do everything wrong whith all of that
Maria Bethânia, please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
Better, better, Beta, Beta, Bethânia
Please send me a letter I wish to know things are getting better

She has given her soul to the devil but the devil gave his soul to God
Before the flood, after the blood, before you can see
She has given her soul to the devil and bought a flat by the sea
Maria Bethânia, please send me a letter
I wish to know things are getting better
Better, better, Beta, Beta, Bethânia
Please send me a letter I wish to know things are getting better

Everybody knows that it’s so hard to dig and get to the root
You eat the fruit, you go ahead, you wake up on your bed
But I love her face ’cause it has nothing to do with all I said

Daily Nightly

Darkened rolling figures move through prisms of no color
Hand in hand, they walk the night, but never know each other
Passion cast in neon lights light up the jewelled trav’ler
Who, lost in scenes of smoke-filled dreams
Find questions, but no answers

Startled eyes that sometimes see phantasmagoric splendor
Pirouhette down palsied paths with pennies for the vendor
Salvation’s yours for just the time it takes to pay the dancer
Once again, such anxious men find questions but no answers

The night has gone and taken its infraction
While reddened eyes hope there will be a next one
Terror signs look down upon a world that glitters glibly
And mountainsides put arms around the unsuspecting city

Second hands that minds have slowed are moving even faster
Toward bring down someone who’s found
The questions, but no answers

The Guns Of Brixton

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

When the law break in
How you gonna go?
Shot down on the pavement
Or waiting on death row

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you’ll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of brixton

The money feels good
And your life you like it well
But surely your time will come
As in heaven, as in hell

You see, he feels like ivan
Born under the brixton sun
His game is called survivin’
At the end of the harder they come

You know it means no mercy
They caught him with a gun
No need for the black maria
Goodbye to the brixton sun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
Yes, even shoot us
But oh, the guns of brixton

When they kick at your front door
How you gonna come?
With your hands on your head
Or on the trigger of your gun

You can crush us
You can bruise us
Yes, even shoot us
But oh, the guns of brixton

Shot down on the pavement
Waiting in death row
His game is called survivin’
As in heaven, as in hell

You can crush us
You can bruise us
But you’ll have to answer to
Oh, the guns of brixton

Walk

Can't you see I'm easily bothered by persistance?
One step from lashing out at you.
You want in to get under my skin and call yourself a friend.
I've got more friends like you, what do I do?
(PRE)
Is there no standard anymore?
What it takes, who I am, where I've been, belong.
You can't be something you're not.
Be yourself, by yourself, stay away from me.
A lesson learned in life, known from the dawn of time.
(CHORUS)
Re, spect, walk.
What did you say?
Re, spect, walk.
Are you talking to me?
Are you talking to me?
Run your mouth when I'm not around, it's easy to achieve.
You cry to weak friends that sympathize.
Can you hear the violins playing your song?
Those same friends tell me your every word.
(PRE)
(CHORUS)(x2)
No way punk!
(SOLO)
(CHORUS)(x2)
Walk on home boy!

Glory Box

I’m so tired of playing
Playing with this bow and arrow
Gonna give my heart away
Leave it to the other girls to play

For I’ve been a tempteress too long

Yes

Give me a reason to love you
Give me a reason to be… a woman
I just wanna be a woman

From this time unchained

We’re all looking at a different picture
Through this new frame of mind
A thousand flowers could bloom
Move over and give us some room, yeah

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be… a woman
I just wanna be a woman

So don’t you stop being a man

Just take a little look from outside when you can
Sow a little tenderness
No matter if you cry

Give me a reason to love you

Give me a reason to be… a woman
I just wanna be a woman
It’s all I wanna be, it’s all, a woman

For this is the beginning of forever and ever

It’s time to move over

So I wanna be

I’m so tired of playing

Playing with this bow and arrow
Gonna give my heart away
Leave it to the other girls to play

For I’ve been a tempteress too long…

Love Trap

I have fallen so deeply, so steeply in love 
The harmony that you charm me with cascades from above 
Bewitch me, beguile me and lead me astray 
Don't you fret on me, don't you rat on me, no way 

(Your body is a love trap) your body 
(Your body is a love trap) is a love trap 
(Your body is a love trap) and you captured me inside 
(Your body is a love trap) 

Tantalize me and tease me with your tender kiss 
Your honey lips are impossible to resist 
Enraptured and lost in your labyrinth 
I can't say where I end and where you begin 

(Your body is a love trap) your body 
(Your body is a love trap) is a love trap 
(Your body is a love trap) and you got me hypnotized 
(Your body is a love trap) oh 

I don't care 'bout the others, don't care what they say 
I just want to make love to you night and day 

Lost inside, deep within 
The pleasure palace of your warm skin 
The nectar of your lips 
The motion of your hips 
I dream of you, night and day 

(Your body is a love trap) your body 
(Your body is a love trap) is a love trap 
(Your body is a love trap) and you got me deep inside 
(Your body is a love trap) 

Your body, is a love trap (love trap) 
And you got me hypnotized 
You captured me inside (love trap, love trap) 
You captured me (love trap, love trap) 
Ahhh (love trap, love trap) 
(love trap, love trap)

Youngsters, OG´s, Hustler´s, Homies, 
lass mich die Hände sehen
wenn ihr Hip Hop noch liebt
das my sound
ich weiß ihr liebt es
FK style ihr kriegt es

Hippster, Hot chicks, backpacker, Ghetto kids, 
Nimm eure Hände hoch
Zeig mir, dass ihr Rap noch liebt
Thats my sound
Ich weiß ihr liebt es
Thats my sound

1. Strophe

2007 und wir sind nochma kurz da
FK10 der erste runde Geburtstag 
(es ist) schon ne Dekade her 
wieder 10 Jahre mehr 
die Lieder spiegeln den Erfahrungswert

Stell Dir vor Du bist 15
Deine erste FK Show
Das hieß dann Du warst 17 bei Esperanto
Jetzt biste 25 denkst´echt so lang schon
Stehst noch mal vor der Bühne
Und hebst die Hand hoch

Denn yes wir haben´s noch
den Shit, der dir gut tut
Die Hits, die einem´ Ohr hängen bleiben wie blue tooth
Lyrics mit Weitblick
Wie einklick bei youtube
Für die Kids vom Schulhof ins Schulbuch, nun gut
War nie der Jesus
Nie euer Petrus
Kein Genius, einfach nur ein Rapper mit Ethos
War nie nur ein interlektueller kleiner Studi Futzke
Fakt ist: war nie an der Uni
Macht mich nicht zu Rudi Dutschke
Waren einfach nur die coolsten, Rapper und Producer
Weil wir den mund nicht halten
Galten wir als Revoluzzer
Jetzt hör ma gut zu 
wenn du´s sonst nicht checkst
das´ nicht nur, concious rap
Das ist en Monster Track

Hook

2. Strophe

2007 und ihr wolltet noch mehr haben
wir bringen ´s zurück
Raps goldene Era
Das ist FK10
Der Rest kann gehen
Wir holen uns extra fame
Für die nächsten 10
Denn wir sind immer noch so cool
So verdammt old school
Der Don sitzt im Rollstuhl
Vor seinen Pro tools
Komm wieder mit dem Don
Der Rap Veteran
Fric-Frico zuck die Nadel
Hier is dein Methadon Programm
Kann verstehn, was viele Leute über Rapper denken
es ist nicht der Sound
Es sind die Werte, die wir representen
Oftmals sind Raps sinnlos wie Blindtext
Im Sinn unserer Kinder 
Ich bring nix für´n Index
10 Jahre Business
10 Jahre cashflow
10 mal zu sehen unsere 10 Jahre Splash Show
10 Sekunden, um 5 Finger zur ne Faust zu ballen
10 000 Heads, die mitsingen
ich brauchs von allen

Too low to find my way
Too high to wonder why
I’ve touched this place before
Somewhere in another time
Now I can hear the sun
The clouds drifting through the blinds
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

A satellite recalled your voice
Sent me round the world again
All the night you’ve dreamt away
Sent me round my heart again
One touch upon my lips
And all my thoughts are clear
I feel your smoky mist
Up to the stratosfear

Did you notify my way
To hide a wonder why
I’ve touched this place before,
So we’re in another time
Now I can hear the sound
The clouds drifting through the blidge
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

Did you notify my way
To hide a wonder why
I’ve touched this place before,
So we’re in another time
Now I can hear the sound
The clouds drifting through the blidge
A half a million thoughts
Are flowing through my mind

Young Liars

My mast ain't so sturdy, my head is at half,
I'm searching the clouds for a storm.
My lady reveals herself of marked-down freedom,
Forever cashed out to no more.
She put the plan in the blame. Who is bearing the name
For each digress who's left you up to
Save the skins for a pelt and the rest for a belt.
We can't open, no nothing. Can't open, no nothing. 

Young liars
Thank you for taking my hands
Young liars
Thank you for taking my hands

Well, it's cold and it's quiet, and cobblestone cold in here
Fucking for fear of not wanting to fear again
Lonely is all we are
Lovely so far, but my heart's still a marble in an empty jelly jar
Someday suppose that my curious nervousness stills into prescience, clairvoyant consciousness
I will be calmer than cream,
Making maps out of your dreams
But will psychic ability kill the nativity or simply diminish the flinch?
Ooo Young liars,
Ooo Young liars,
Thank you for taking my hands 

And burying them deep in the world's wet womb
Where no one can heed their commands
Where no one can heed their commands
Except you liars
Young liars

Voice strings on vocal before it on words to receive
Take my picture soon all I will be is my disease

Take my picture soon all I will be is my disease

Take my picture soon all I will be is my disease

Satisfaction
When I'm drivin' in my car 
And the man come on the radio 
He's tellin' me more and more 
About some useless information 
Tryin' mess my imagination 

When I'm watchin' my tv 
And a man comes on to tell me 
How white my shirts can be 
But, he can't be a man 'cause he doesn't smoke 
The same cigarettes as me 

When I'm ridin' around the globe 
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that 
And I'm tryin' to make some boy 
Baby, baby, baby, come back 
'cause you see I'm on a losing streak 
When I'm ridin' a round the globe 
And I'm doin' this and I'm signin' that 
And I'm tryin' 
And I'm tryin'

As Long As There’s An Apple Tree

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
And what is meant to be will be
Who teaches birds how to fly

Here in this world
Where so few things endure
Look around me
There still are things that are constant and sure
Love that’s faithful and true
Will go on forever

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
And what is meant to be will be
Who teaches birds how to fly

How many times
Have you looked at a rose?
Think it over can you explain
How it blooms and it grows?
You just know that it’s there
Like I know I love you

Who teaches birds how to fly
Who teaches they [Incomprehensible] survive

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie
As long as there’s a you and me
Love can never die

As long as there’s an apple tree
There’ll be apple pie

The Operation
Charlotte Gainsbourg

I want to explore you
I’m gonna get under your skin
So you can feel me running through your veins

I want to examine
Every inch of your frame
The pressure points that cause your joy and pain

Our love goes under the knife
There is no room for doubt

Now i’m inside you
My hands can feel their way
Further inside than i have ever been

Now i can really
Mess around with your heart
And fill it to the brim with broken dreams

Our love goes under the knife
Two lives may be saved

And if i pull this off
I’ll refuse the nobel prize
Instead i will look into your eyes

If i pull this off your whole body will be mine
And i’m prepared to work throughout the night

Our love goes under the knife
Nothing is taboo
…here on the cutting edge of science

Too much information
I feel i’m getting lost
Absorbed into the fibre of your soul

Deep within the abbatoir
Of your entrails your insides
Lost in you forever far from home

Our love goes under the knife
Someone got too close

Our love goes under the knife
The heart was rejected by the host

Come on, baby, light my fire.

Try to set the night on fire.

The time to hesitate is through.
No time to wallow in the mire.
Try now we can only lose.
And our love become a funeral pyre.

Come on, baby, light my fire.
Come on, baby, light my fire.
Try to set the night on fire, yeah.

Chover (ou Invocação Para Um Dia Líquido)

Cordel Do Fogo Encantado

“O sabiá no sertão
Quando canta me comove,
Passa três meses cantando
E sem cantar passa nove
Porque tem a obrigação
De só cantar quando chove

Chover chover
Valei-me Ciço o que posso fazer
Chover chover
Um terço pesado pra chuva descer
Chover chover
Até Maria deixou de moer
Chover chover
Banzo Batista, bagaço e banguê

Chover chover
Cego Aderaldo peleja pra ver
Chover chover
Já que meu olho cansou de chover
Chover chover
Até Maria deixou de moer
Chover chover
Banzo Batista, bagaço e banguê

Meu povo não vá simbora
Pela Itapemirim
Pois mesmo perto do fim
Nosso sertão tem melhora
O céu tá calado agora
Mais vai dar cada trovão
De escapulir torrão
De paredão de tapera

Bombo trovejou a chuva choveu

Choveu choveu
Lula Calixto virando Mateus
Choveu choveu
O bucho cheio de tudo que deu
Choveu choveu
suor e canseira depois que comeu
Choveu choveu
Zabumba zunindo no colo de Deus
Choveu choveu
Inácio e Romano meu verso e o teu
Choveu choveu
Água dos olhos que a seca bebeu

Quando chove no sertão
O sol deita e a água rola
O sapo vomita espuma
Onde um boi pisa se atola
E a fartura esconde o saco
Que a fome pedia esmola

Seu boiadeiro por aqui choveu
Seu boiadeiro por aqui choveu
Choveu que amarrotou
Foi tanta água que meu boi nadou

Faces and Names

Words and music: Lou Reed & John Cale

Faces and names, I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause trouble for me
Faces and names
If we all looked the same and we all had the same name
I wouldn’t be jealous of you or you jealous of me
Faces and names
I always fall in love with someone who looks
the way I wish that I could be
I’m always staring at someone who hurts
And the one they hurt is me
Faces and names, to me they’re all the same
If I looked like you and you looked like me
There’d be less trouble you see
Faces and names I wish they’d go away
I’d disappear into that wall and never talk
Faces and names
I wish I was a robot or a machine
Without a feeling or a thought
People who want to meet the name I have
Are always disappointed when they meet me
Faces and names, I wish they were the same
Faces and names only cause problems for me
Faces and names
I’d rather be a hole in the wall – looking out on the other side
I’d rather look and listen, listen and not talk
To faces and names
I had a breakdown when I was a kid
I lost my hair when I was young
If you dress older when you’re not, as your really age you look the same
If we all looked the same, we wouldn’t play these games
Me dressing for you and you dressing for me – undressing for me
Faces and names if they all were the same
You wouldn’t be jealous of me or me jealous of you
Me jealous of you – I’m jealous of you
Your face and your name
Your face and your name
Faces and names
