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

1. 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

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

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

3. After The Crop
(A. Letecheur - M. Guccio - R. De Greef - JP. Devaux)  

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

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

No Way To Heaven

Runin’ around from town to town
Waistin’ time in the heat of the night
From girl to girl I’ll never get enought
It’s like a drug deep inside my soul, it’s like drugs turnin’ up side down!

Ragin’ love just for a wile
living in the shadow,the shadow of the night
Always sex and fun, we’ll never get enough
It like a drug deep inside your soul, like drugs, like drugs

NO WAY NO WAY TO HEAVEN
NO WAY NO WAY I FEEL IT
EVEN IF IT’S ALL YOU NEED BUT HE’S GOT A SPECIOUS MIND
NO WAY NO WAY TO HEAVEN

Payin’ the game breakin’ every rule
He’s like a devil but he’s not a fool
From love to love he’ll never get enough
It’s like a drug deep inside his soul
It’s like drug turnin’ inside out
Hot blood a guy with a gun
Under preasure he needs some more fun
For ever and never shame on him
It’s like a drug deep inside his soul like drugs,like drugs

NO WAY NO WAY TO HEAVEN
NO WAY NO WAY I FEEL IT
EVENIF IT’S ALL YOU NEED BUT YOU GOT A SPECIOUS MIND
NO WAY NO WAY TO HEAVEN

IT’S LIKE A DRUG DEEP INSIDE HIS SOUL

 
Lyrics

5. No Way To Heaven
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - T. Plas)  

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

6. Summon Up Your Strenght
(A. Letecheur - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - JP. Devaux)  

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)  

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

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

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

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

Lay down

Let me tell you, tell you something
I work everyday, I share all my nights
I’m gonna tell you, tell you something
I’ve thought that true love would change my life
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s no love left in my eyes
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s only one thing on my mind

Lay down

Let me tell you, tell you something
I care ’bout your dreams, but I can’t help mine
It ‘s hard to leave, leave you alone
Love me one more time, goodbye
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s no love left in my eyes
Don’t ask me why
Don’t ask me why
There ‘s only one thing on my mind

 
Lyrics

I’m waiting for you at night

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

12. Solstice
Hervé Borbé  

The Fifth Season

The snow pearled the sky and slowly it melted drop by drop
A rainbow of eight colours was hanging in the sky
Offered by the gods for the new season
Under a cleaned sky, as far as its blue bark
The mural notches bustled up like bursting scales
The hollow of the valleys swallowed the shade of burning winds
A lemon clearness shouted out the reunion of the moon and the sun
Breaking idols of the fading stars
The tree had no birds, no dead leaves, just flowers and fruits !
There was no day, no night, just a lemon clearness
fareaway, the horizon was slowly wearing
Separated by the sea, a rock and a tree were tearing up
another horizon
It was the beginning of the fifth season

Seated on the stairs of the church a man was left in the lurch
His barrel organ played “Jester”, a tune of the seventies
A little boy wasn’t laughing he just stayed there and said nothing
With his little merry-go-round that he made turn on the groundµ

He really knew it was not a dream
And while tasting a blu ice cream

Without having a good grouse
With his other mouth he cried
“Mother I want another” It ‘s strange but the boy was me
When the seasons where only four !

The moon and the sun were shining in the sky
Offered by the gods for the fifth season

 
Lyrics

13. The fifth season
(A. Letecheur - M. Ysaye - R. De Greef - JP. Devaux)  

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

14. Nobody Knows
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas - L. O)  

Turn Off

Waking up the morning
Get up, come down to breakfast
Still there on the morning show
Sounds that have no meaning, makes no sense

Coming home in the evening
After a useless, a stupid schoolday
Turn on the tv
Pictures flicker, nothing there for me

Everyday in and long day out
At home, at school, atcetera
I hear all around me
The same blah-blah which drives me crazy

Today I turn the radio off
Today I turn the tv off
Today I’m gonna turn to rock and roll

Just another grey morning
Instant coffee and shitty cornflakes
Turn on the radio
Plastic masticated emptiness

Trakking back in the evening
Feels like they’re chatting my whole life away
Reach out for that tv
Picture flicker, sends me off to sleep

Today I turn the radio off
Today I turn the tv off
Today I’m gonna turn to rock and roll

 
Lyrics

15. Turn off
(R. De Greef - M. Guccio - M. Ysaye - T. Plas)  

 

16. I'm In Love live
(Marc Ysaye, Thierry Plas, Roland De Greef, Mario Guccio, Herve Borbe)  

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

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

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
