Track Name: Calliope
You were golden
A timeless princess
An angel in shining armor
In white pearls and silver grace

You were the star
Came down like a feather
You took their breath away
But now you come here
All naked and bare

As I lay you down
I lay you down

Ease off
Let your hair down
No need for make-belief
Just open up your arms

Shut your eyes
And let me come inside
Lose who you were before
It’s just you and me
Track Name: Wachten op Morgen
Is het dan niet goed misschien
Kijk de horizon. Morgen
Morgen zon
Over de daken. Over wolken
Over wolken jij
Zo ver gekomen
En nu,
Verward in dromen
Is het tijd, is het spijt,
Die jou heeft bevroren?

Jij
Jij verandert
Vertaald
Al mijn woorden tot
Geen woorden meer
Geen woorden meer kwijt
Je speelt verstoppertje
Je speelt verdwaald
En ik kom je niet tegen
Kom daal uit die bomen
Je hebt jezelf voorgelogen
Wacht niet meer, smacht niet meer
Naar de dag die nog moet komen
Track Name: The Girl with the Wooden Crown
Across the ocean lives a girl in a tree
Her eyes are colored both brown and green
And from the branches she carves a crown
Until one day, she climbs on down

She crossed the water of the deep blue sea
And on bare feet she came to me
Skin as soft as a velvet gown
She made me king with her wooden crown

Cross my heart and hope to die
She’ll stay with me til the end of times

I showed her a song that i wrote
She learned how to play it note by note
This girl she has the finest groove
Her bracelets rattle with her every move

Baby now baby don’t stop
Keep on moving me until I drop

Across the ocean there stands a tree
Its leaves are colored both brown and green
There we reign with our wooden crowns
I don’t think we’ll ever climb down
Track Name: Aphrodite
The salt has vanished from the tears that I cry
And these words that I speak, they don’t define
My shadow got cut off from my feet
All my thoughts seem so obsolete

And all my friends can’t seem to remember my name
Can someone please stop this wind from breezing through my veins
I’m not now, I’m not here anymore
You’re the reason that i disappeared

I’m the drug you can’t ignore
Make you crawl back for more
You’re not the man you used to be
As you wrap yourself around me
I’m the drug you can’t ignore
Call me love, call me whore
Crushing all integrity
Hear me laughing hahaha hihihi

So I keep on breathing, keep on trying
But i’m not living, i’m just complying to you
I surrender, I can’t succeed
Hook me up to make me feel complete

And all these memories I can’t extract from my brain
They rule and ruin my life, again and again
Once had cravings, once had fears
But i’m too afraid to lose you if they reappear
Track Name: La Vedette
Juste un égard, encadré, enscèné

Il faut me regarder. Que je me sens aimé. Par vos yeux inconnus et masqués
Tout tournicotant, dans le mirage que je m'invente. A la recherche d’amour négligé

Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux. Tout nu et sans gêne
Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion, de me pouvoir lâcher

Alors tombe la nuit, la solitude se reconstruit
Un peu d'abri merde , ce n'est pas trop demander.Non?
La traînée de mon espoir se répand par les trottoirs
Oh mais demain, sacré demain

Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux, tout nu et sans gêne
Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion de me pouvoir lâcher

Juste, un petit coup d'œil, pour combler le creux, pour nourir le vide, le fringale, et l'orgueil

Je vous en prie, un petit coup d'œil, pour combler le creux,
pour nourir le vide, le fringale, l'exigeance, la manie, l'abattement et l'orgueil

Vient le temps de monter sur scène, allumer les feux, tout nu sans gêne
Je m'éblouis, oh belle illusion, de me pouvoir lâcher

Juste un égard, encadré, enscèné
Track Name: El Purgatorio
“Quien dirá, quien dirá
Infierno o gloria”
Track Name: Carnaval des Carcasses
Feathered creatures woke me, with the stomping of their feet.
I was feeling hazy, strange creatures passing through these streets
I hear a distant drumming, the drone pierces through my brain
Oh medicine man please tell me, am i alright or am i insane

Come join the masquerade, Come join the death parade

There I saw Damballah dancing, around his neck, a creature serpentine
Then it dawned upon me, how could i not have read these signs.
I saw my dear mother in a pale white dress, a gris-gris bag and a blade
Around the fire, Baron Samedi, almighty Oya, and everybody swayed.

It was down on Congo Square, where I last saw my sweet Marie
As i kneeled down to ask her: stay with me for eternity
So darling build me an alter, bring me cigars, flowers and rum
And I will dance and sing with the loudest voice, for you Marie, until the day you come
Track Name: The Silver Dagger
Oh katy dear, go ask your momma
If you can be a bride of mine
If she says yes, come back and tell me
If she says no, we’ll run away

Oh Willie dear, ain’t no use in asking
She’s in her room-a taking rest
And by her side lies a silver dagger
To slay the one, that i love best

Oh katy dear, then go ask your poppa
If you can be a bride of mine
If he says yes, come back and tell me
If he says no, we’ll run away

Oh Willie dear, ain’t no use in asking
For he’s in his room-a taking rest
And by his side lies a silver dagger
To kill the one, that i love best

So then he picked up, that silver dagger
He stove it through his troubled young heart
Saying goodbye Katie, goodbye darling
I’ll die for the one, that i love best

Then she picked up, that bloody dagger
She stove it through her lilly white breast
Saying goodbye momma, goodbye poppa
I’ll die for the one, that i love best
Track Name: Inside You Heart
Am i only dreaming
Or awake in fear and dread
In my head there’s monsters creeping
And thoughts hiding under my bed

Ballerina’s dancing
High on top of trees
When the wind comes breezing
They fall down to their knees

And it’s all inside your head
But it’s not there
It’s all inside your head

Distant voices whisper
Pulling like the undertow
My mind keeps stacking up memories
Under which I’m being buried below
Track Name: Zomerdromen
Appels hangen in de boom,
wiegen zacht, in jouw droom
Zoete adem, zoete geur
Ochtendzon, ochtendkleur

Proef je lichaam, smaak van zilt
Ochtendroes, ochtendschild
Nimmer wakker, nimmer slaap
Jij en ik, droom en daad

Het leven kabbelt voorbij
Een seizoen in een eeuwigheid
Begrensd door de horizon
Ik wou dat ik je kussen kon

Ogen zinderend in zweem,
Heel dichtbij, en zo ver heen
Dieper rakend, wij in zwijm
Onbegrensd, ons geheim

Zoals wind door de bladeren waait,
Mijn hand door jouw haren draait
Het zilt op jouw lichaam proef
Met jou in zomerdromen vertoef
Track Name: Aphrodite (single)
The salt has vanished from the tears that i cry
and these words that i speak, they don’t define
My shadow got cut off from my feet
All my thoughts seem so obsolete

And all my friends can’t seem to remember my name
Can someone please stop this wind from breezing through my vains
I’m not now, I’m not here anymore
You’re the reason that i disappeared

I’m the drug you can’t ignore
Make you crawl back for more
You’re not the man you used to be
as you wrap yourself around me

I’m the drug you can’t ignore
Call me love, call me whore
Crushing all integrity
Hear me laughing hahaha hihihi

So I keep on breathing, keep on trying
But i’m not living, i’m just complying to you
I surrender, I can’t succeed
Hook me up to make me feel complete

And all these memories I can’t extract from my brain
They rule and ruin my life, again and again
Once had cravings, once had fears
But i’m too afraid to lose you if they reappear
