Rope Dancer

Rope dancer, we want to help you
To weave the rope of your liberty
Blindman, we want to lead yourway
Into your cloud and you will see

We are young fragile actors of a funny story
A story we can write Open the door, you my friend Pierrot
So I can bring you something to write a word

We are young fragile actors of a funny story
A story we can write

A bird is dying, it dies incognito
So choose well yours steps and don’t believe in them
Rope dancer, they told you they came to help you
To break the rope of your liberty

We are young fragile actors of a funny story
A story we can write

Rope dancer, show us your show
Rope dancer, we want to help you
Blindman, choose well yours steps
Blindman, we want to help you
Friend Pierrot, open the door
Friend Pierrot, I bring you a pen

Lyrics

1. Rope dancer
(A. Letecheur - R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye)  

The Jester

Coasting along the sail of the drunk boat
And only making laugh the mainmast of gold
The Jester loaded the hold
with sincere smiles
The froth was running ashore
On the right bank of the king’s ear…

Rowing across a secret ocean
The sun was not present in the trip
An albatros looking strangely
Like a vulture of ill omen
Followed the mad run of the ship
But suddenly, the rolling became
Harder and harder
Storm and sea broke !
Purple waves smashed the hull

Lying on fresh green grass
His friend, the minstrel
Was making love with a wild flower
“Take care L’Angely, the court
is waiting for you ! ”
Strolling into the garden
of the royal palace
The jester was going down
By this make-up of luxury

Envious of worldly smiles the king ordered
The jester to present his show
“Feeling, the queen wants thrills !”
“And make me smile, make me cry ! ”
Neither his mines not his pirouettes
Made a lip move
Powerless, he hanged himself
With a West madness -
The sail guffawed
“Feeling, the queen wants thrills…”

A mocking tear trickled
down his left cheek

 
Lyrics

2. The jester
(R. De Greef - A. Letecheur)  

Cheerlesness

In a golden cloud
I’ve never seen in all my life someone like you and I love you
Would you try it again
why not do it again
I’ve never seen in all my life someone like you and I love you
A kind off unconscious melancholy came into me and I didn’t see the
Meaness off my old face since you leave me
I’m sure our life can born again
It ‘ s my only wish
Would you try it again
Why not do it again
I’ve never seen in all my life someone like you and I love you
Suddenly I feel so bad when I think you could change a day your mine
I know someone somewhere ‘s waiting for me and all my fits off madness
I’m above my golden cloud oh love I know everything must past
I don’t remember where did the wedding take place

 
Lyrics

3. Cheerlesness
(M. Ysaye - A. Letecheur)  

Let me live my life

Do you thing I’m nothing
Just nothing at all
I’m gona tell you something
I’m not the man you thought
Well you’re not my gardian angel
I’ll break the chain I’m sure I’m able
I know I can do it all alone
Now let me live my life
Let me go my way, go my own way
Let me live my life

I’ll step out of the moving train
I’ll leave the ship before it sinks
No sorrow, no pain
From now on a brand new day is rising
I’ll shut the door and pack up my clothes
I don’t want any more of your laws
I know I can do it all alone

Now let me live my life
Let me go my way, go my own way
Let me live my life

 
Lyrics

4. Let me live my life
(M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - A. Letecheur - JP. Devaux - R. De Greef)  

Wisdom

In my forehead, a sheet of lead
was seeping through holes of power-hammers
My cracked spirit sank into a heavenly wave
A cloud of ether discharged the ballast
A rainbow with gloomy glints
emerged out of a split of velvet
then all veiled…
As if a lobotomy was overcoming me !
Since they have cut my tongue
Another ‘s walking in my head
Following the scattering
of misunderstood saliva
Cut hand grows up again longer
Tail of lizard tracked in a lemon clearness
Gouged out eyes are born again in my back
Eye of chameleon mottled in a rouge of meat
Hey Mary, have you bought the ten pounds
of tomatoes at the supermarket ?
My cracked spirit sank into a heavenly wave
Soon I’ll hear the sound of my life
Soon I’ll see the edge of my life
Soon I’ll sniff the smel of my life
I hope that I shall soon vomit

 
Lyrics

5. Wisdom
(R. De Greef - A. Letecheur)  

Over The Hill

I can see some men walking in town
And I can hear them talking just like fools
And they just walk in their dreams
And they just go with the stream
But they’d better look at what ‘s real
So they will see over the hill
And they can bring to their sides
So many light in the night
And they can bring to their sides
So many joys in their life
I can see some kids running in town
And they just keep on playing the game
And they just walk in their dreams
And they just go with the stream
But they ‘D better look at what ‘s real
So they will see over the hill
And they can bring to their sides
So many lights in the night
And they can bring to their sides
So many joys in their life
I can see some people made like men
And they wonder why they all look the same

 
Lyrics

6. Over the hill
(M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - A. Letecheur - JP. Devaux - R. De Greef)  

Mary

I’m Mary
I’m three
I’m older than my brother
To day I go to school with my mother
She told me
I could be happy
And I’ve put my new dress on
But what ‘s going on ?
We went into such a big home
Then mother left me all alone
A lady who’s name was Mrs Trade
Said to me”Mary don’t be afraid”

Mother, mother take me back home

She told us a lot of nice stories
It was so funny
But when I spilled my milk on the book
She flared up and give me a bad look
The afternoom we went to the playground
There were many torps all around
But when I tried to taste the sand
Raging Mrs Trade tapped my hand
Suddenly a ball hit my head
Such a pain and I lost my midday’s bread
All the children were laughing
Alone with my tears I was thinking :
“Mother, mother take me back home”

 
Lyrics

7. Mary
(R. De Greef - JP. Devaux - M. Ysaye - M. Guccio)  

Summon Up Your Strength

See your shadow she hasn’t followed you for such a long time
She left to follow another sun somethings broken in the depth
of you Eternal Twins !

She ‘s gonna rock the walls of Jericho
But if you want to, you will bring them down – Glory to you !
If you walk from now on all alone, under the middays ‘s sun
May be you don’t need her
Summon up your strenght go on ahead
And you ‘ll catch her up
Please walk hand in hand , you always drive faster and faster
You ‘ll come a cropper
There you’re sure you ‘ll get out of it
She will be at the rendez-vous she will be there
L’aughing to see you being dragged through the mud
She ‘ll do her best so you stay on the ground
She herself drops you will you be helped and praise to the sky ?
Remember we all were
Remember we all were wich you
Dancing the same old dance together
Now everybody has his own fame and dances
If you keep on letting the years fall by
I will stay the same
Rock and Roll, we love you !
Rock and Roll we need you !
Keep on rocking let’s dance all together
Be yourself and sing us your song

 
Lyrics

8. Summon up your strength
(A. Letecheur - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - JP. Devaux)  

Beyond The Silence

Beyond the silence I’ll cry your name
I’ve always been a prisoner behind my eyes
The reassuring fifter that let ‘s pass only what it wants
A thousand times I’ve tried to leave myself to find the truth
One day will the carpet of flowers be pollenated by unnamed steps
Then you came I was waiting for you, if only you knew howmuch
You attracted the bees which pollenated the flowers

Through your eyes, your voice, your kind of life the world is changing In your eyes I m not looking for myself
I’m not looking for anything everything’s explained it ‘s all so easy
I feel like a peblle on the bich that the sea has finally released
Drouned for so long in the doubt which only passed a little light and
many troubles
Here I’m in front of you lit from everywhere
Here I’m in front you, lit from everywhere
Now I feel acrop wind which caresses me with its fragrance
No longer will I spend my days in vain conquets from gliding time
For ages I have wanted these feasts, a smile on your face
the joys in your eyes
There were so many ways to run to the pale sundays of november
Like now to the birthdays of our childhood
Beyond the silence I’ll cry your name
Beneath the oceans we ‘ll fly away
The clay of the ways will rise up itself
The dead houses will be alive provide you’re in them
In the empty sunken shiping in a flood of love
I won’t fal asleep on your beast
I’ll stay awake

 
Lyrics

9. Beyond the silence
(A. Letecheur - M. Guccio - R. De Greef - M. Ysaye)  

After the Crop

The wind had bent the crop when the mountebanks
came back from the hop
Lonely on the road, the drivers of the night followed the light
and took the path to their next plunder or fight
The rain had beaten down the corn
When the mountebanks came back in the morn
Lonely on the road, the drivers of the night followed the light
and took the path to their next plunder or fight

After a hard day far from the land of the sky
The cardboard clouds returned home without a cry
The lights went out one by one
But this day was not like another one
The night woke up like a badly washed bitch
And the voice of the wind was going off pitch
I was always on the rack !
Like a wave that the beach throw back
‘Cause she thinks she ‘s looking too ugly
Or maybe cause she ‘s looking too lovely
Like a star lost in the sky
I had just one friend, my cry
And I heard people play and I heard people say:
“This year the crop will not be good
However we have worked as much as we could”

Roaming under mechanical moonbeams I was going down in my dreams
Without a look and well oiled
I was alone with my world
Like the blind of the electric flock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
My saturated heart cried his pain
But what was rolling in my brain ?

I tried to forget what was said in the books
All their stories of crops and crooks
But somehow I can not talk
I still had this electronic walk
Like the blind sheep of the electronic flock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
My saturated heart cried out his pain
And my revolt broke out off my brain !

They were looking at me with big eyes of ice
But for me it was so nice
I was free ! I was me !
No more what they want me to be
Like the blind sheep of the electricflock
But I knew that I would give them a shock
And the rain did not beatdown the corn
It had been cut this morn

 
Lyrics

10. After the crop
(A. Letecheur - M. Guccio - R. De Greef - JP. Devaux)  

Fly

Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’m waiting for you at night
Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’m burning for you at night
High, I wanna get high
You know babe
We’re gonna make it higher tonight

Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time

Fly, I wanna fly
It’s been a long long time
I’ve waited for this magical night
Now you want it now
And I wanna see you cry
Wanna feel you flying tonight

Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time

Fight, don’t wanna fight
I only want you to be my lover,
My love tonight
Fly, I know we’ll fly
It’s been a long long time
I’ve waited for you at night
Though I know you’ll go your own way
Tomorrow is another day
Forget it babe gimme a good time

 
Lyrics

11. Fly
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

A Life

Forty five years old
And so many questions
Twenty three years
I’ve been doing the same stupid thing
Forty five years old
And so many questions
Twenty three years
I’ve been doing the same stupid thing

And I wonder why I ‘m living here
I wonder what I ‘m doing here ?

How could I find a way
To be happy ?
I hate that machine
I hate that work
How could I find a way
To be happy ?
I hate the forman
And his stupid factory

And I wonder why I ‘m living here
I wonder what I ‘m doing here ?

Five o’clock: the end of the day
The end of the nightmare
All day long
I’m doing the same stupid thing
Forty five years old
And so many questions
Twenty three years
I’ve been doing the same stupid thing

And I wonder why I ‘m living here
I wonder what I ‘m doing here ?

 
Lyrics

12. A life
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

City Flowers

They grow everywhere in the city
Like weeds in a daisy field
They grow everyday in the city
They’re all around you
They are encercling you
Just like a prey, day after day

Their silhouette deforms the skyline
Keeping the sun from shining
The sunbeams edge right and left in search of the way
And finally finish their life as giant shadows
Shadows of concrete
Shadows of sadness
I don’t wanna see all these shadows
Twenty years of my life are gone
And since I’ve been here
I’m looking through the window of my room
In search of the sun, of the moon, of a hill of a river, of a glade
But all around me there is only
Odour of concrete
Colour of sadness
The city flowers are in power
Odour of concrete
Colour of sadness
I don’t wanna see all these towers around me

Walking all alone in a long long a long white corridor
So alone on this floor
I hear people cry in the flat number 9
I hear people laugh in the flat number 6
Walking all alone in a long long long white corridor
So alone on this floor
I hear people cry in the flat number 9
I hear people laugh in the flat number 6
Walking all alone in a long long long white corridor
So alone on this floor
I hear words of love
I hear words of hate
I hear daily words
Going down in a dark narrow lift
So alone in that lift
I hear people cry on the floor number 5
I hear people laugh on the floor number 4
I hear words of love
I hear words of hate
I hear daily words
On the floor number 3
number 2
number 1
Now I’m out
I’m free

13. City flowers
(M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - A. Letecheur - JP. Devaux - R. De Greef)  

Fade Away

Work is done and you fade away
Work is done and you fade away
Work is done and you fade away
Work is done and you fade away
You can go your own way
Work is done and you fade away
Work is done and you fade away
No one will tell you where to go
Work is done and you fade away
No one will tell you what to do
Work is done and you fade away
Just livin’ on the road
Work is done and you fade away
Or livin’ in a palace
Work is done and you fade away
Everything is in your soul

 
Lyrics

14. Fade away
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

Nobody knows

No nobody knows
I’m in love with you
Thrills are in the air
No nobody knows
How it feel inside
Thrills are in the air
Nobody knows that I love you
Nobody knows I do
Nobody knows how I need you
Nobody knows I want you
You and me got life to share

You touch me in my soul
You ‘ve made me feel inside
What I had never felt
Take me where you go
I will be at your side
Until the very end
Call me whenever you want me
I will be there for you
Darling whenever you need me
I will come flying to you
You and I truly care

 
Lyrics

15. Nobody knows
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas - L. O)
