FOR NATHAN

THE AIR FILLS WITH DIAMONDS
RED PARTICLES
VIOLET FIREFLIES
AN EMPTY CANVASS, AN INSTANT
YOU PAINT A LONELY MAN
WHO CANNOT CRY

I FIND SHELTER IN YOUR SHADOW
YOUR KISSES PROTECT ME
DON´T ABANDON ME

SIGHS OF LOVE
OBSCURE DESIRES
PAIN LIGHTS UP
VIOLENCE IN THE SKY
DEMONS ATTACK
LOVE THAT KILLS
KNIVES SHINE
IN THE DARKNESS

BUT CERTAIN NIGHTS I AM
A PERFECT MOMENT
I HAVE NO REGRETS
THE MOON FILLS UP AND I CONNECT
WITH MY LONELY FATHER
WHO COULD NOT ESCAPE

I FIND SHELTER IN YOUR SHADOW
YOUR KISSES PROTECT ME
DON´T ABANDON ME

SIGHS OF LOVE
OBSCURE DESIRES
PAIN LIGHTS UP
VIOLENCE IN THE SKY
DEMONS ATTACK
LOVE THAT KILLS
KNIVES SHINE
IN THE DARKNESS

CRIME AT THE BLUE MOTEL

MOTEL
A BLUE SIGN
THE FOG DESCENDS
DISSONANT NIGHT
CARRIES ME
CURVE THAT GOES SOUTH
SKY LIKE A VEIL
TWO MURDERERS ESCAPE
RUN

THERE´S NO PAIN
A STRANGE GLOW
THE MOTEL OF CRIME IS SILENT
RAPID CLOUDS
RUN

THE RADIO ANNOUNCES
SNOW
OVER BLACKPOOL
WINTER FALLS
DISSONANT NIGHT

Music: Viktor Krauss

IMAGES OF THE AMAZON (audio clip)

Golden river undulates the evening
The jungle traps the mist
I am so far from me

Rainbow opens its wings
Stops the round and sensuous time
I need to live like this

Canoes that sail
Brown skin
Heat that bends me
Lion river
I let it drag me
The green flash of the sun
Let it invent me
Evaporate, delay me
We are only particles
Flying at random
And we become part of
Wherever we land

Clouds draw dark figures
Rapid mirrors of shadows
I am so far from me

Heated earth utters red halos
That dye the endless water
I need to live like this

Canoes that sail
Brown skin
Heat that bends me
Lion river
I let it drag me
The green flash of the sun
Let it invent me
Evaporate, delay me
We are only particles
Flying at random
And we become part of
Wherever we land

BAY OF BENGAL
Imagine that you died
Forty nine days ago
That your soul departs
Towards
A flight without ports
Without north or south
Into a lunar ocean

A white light
Falls on the water
Carries you away
Your soul leaves
The sea of bengal

A reverie
You come undone
The lightness
Of not being
You let go

Release my hand
Everything´s ruby
Untie me
I´m no longer here
My shadow left me
I am gone

Imagine that you died
Forty nine days ago
That your soul departs
Towards
A flight without north or south
Imagine that you lost
Your color and identity
Your soul no longer lingers
In the bay of bengal

TRANSPARENT DREAM (audio clip)

A transparent dream
I don´t know where
Must have been here before
Woke up one winter
A hundred years old
Shooting stars all around me
Clouds go by
No pain
The absence of fear amazes me
I don´t need love

There´s nothing
Behind the sun
I am a distant episode
That is over

Symmetrical and luminous
The snow falls
An immense moon envelops me
An eclipse interrupts my solitude
The silence awakens me
Night goes by
So blue
Interludes of light
And the rest is darkness

There´s nothing
Behind the sun
I am a distant episode
That is over

HIGH PLAINS

The air undulates
Glitters, oscillates
Doubles the images
Incites noon´s glow
The white light, its pulse
The imagination

The heat rises without compassion
The sun, immobile, tears me apart
And I relapse into a vision
High plains, high, high plains
Hidden, diffuse, lost
High, high plains

The air undulates
Glitters, oscillates
Expands the senses
Incites noon´s glow
Creates illusions
That can´t be found

The heat rises without compassion
The sun, immobile, tears me apart
And I relapse into a vision
High plains, high, high plains
Hidden, diffuse, lost
High, high plains

The white moon falls
Inevitably falls
And I´m in love again
