about

The loss of innocence... Oh boy, what a big deal !
Where are they gone ? Where are the stars dancing with the sun ? Where is that beautiful light we've all had in our eyes ?
It's gone ! And it will never come back.
Knowing that, there's only two choices left : cry or laugh.Or both at the same time.
Well, I'd rather have a laugh remembering that temporary state of grace.

This is a tribute to childhood, to where it ends...

Cheers !

Track Name: Ghost And Children
I've got the incredible map of a land
Where ghost and children dancing hand in hand
This land is living through a door in the space
And this space is placed between your nose and your hairs
A word you have to say to come in and play
Find it in those crazy words that I'm gonna say

Inbaligogoloozoodabalinogiladacenceabiganabooboobabibobo
Inbaligogoloozoodabalinogiladacenceabigana to come in here

You were one of us a long time ago
Remember the good fun we shared together
In our heads we had nothing but games
We saw the stars dancing with the sun

World was simple, life beautiful
You still got this light in your eyes
The day was timeless
A wonderful quest
We discovered life in a cloud

We just waited for a new dawn arise
Not in a hurry, day comes to an end
We just sing about the secret of life
The way you see it is the way you enjoy the world

World of hopes and dreams

Never look back boy, never look back

Run and play

Bye bye my sweet little land
Track Name: Harpo
Harpo, in your pocket something sparkling
Harpo, a little piece of what we're searching
Harpo, in our pockets we got nothing
Harpo, we need your tools to build our things
Harpo, a world for those who never grow up
Harpo, a quiet and silent place to dream on
Harpo, and think about the men we could be
Harpo, we dress as men to be nothing

Harpo, there's not enough cream on my birthday cake
Harpo, how could I throw it to someone's face
Harpo, time's playing hide and seek with my head
Harpo, I've finished counting is it too late ?
Harpo, there's really too much noise in our heads
Harpo, now I can understand your silence
Harpo, come back and take us by the hand
Harpo, no no no no no

No matter how long
But I hope some people realize it's a world of children
No matter how come
But I hope some people understand that we need much more fun

And at the speed of time
There is a ghost in your head
Getting ready to growl
And finally, you, the kid, you're down in a hole
Track Name: Goodbye Little Boy
Someone that I love is gone forever
I'm not sad I know he's flying higher now
On a stellar horse, Indian of a stars
I can hear him laugh, on my sleepless dreamful nights

Goodbye little boy, keep an eye on my life
If I'm getting old, come back and kick my sad ass
Goodbye little boy, there is no way to step back
If I'm getting lost, just light a star on summer

No don't dress as a ghost
I'm still afraid of the dark
Please run away from this world
Run, please my boy
Just run away

I remember when the dogs were all your brothers
At this time for you death was for older people
And all the plans we've made for our wonderful future
None of them will be it was just a freaking nightmare for me

Goodbye little boy, keep your hands on my eyes
If I'm getting old, come back and kick my sad ass
Goodbye little boy, there is no way to step back
Goodbye little boy

Goodbye my little
Track Name: You'll Have To Laugh
There's a lot of advice I could give you to make it good
Show you so many ways to fight when the darkness will hit you too
How hard could be your life
I won't tell no lies

You'll have to laugh a lot, yes there'll be light coming out from your mouth
You'll have to laugh a lot, this is the only way to make it good
You'll have to laugh a lot
You'll have to laugh a lot

Nothing stands forever boy you gotta write it in your mind
Even life has to end and it's gonna hurt you so bad
So smile anyway when your heart cries out
Now you know you only live once

Time is the same for you and I
I won't tell no lies
How hard could be your life
So now it's time to be mad

You'll have to laugh a lot, nothing can stop me having a big laugh with you
You'll have to laugh a lot, this is the only way to make it good
You'll have to laugh a lot
You'll have to laugh a lot

Make your tears go back in the land of smile

You'll have to laugh a lot, yes there'll be light coming out from your mouth
You'll have to laugh a lot, it's all you got to fight back the deepest pain
You'll have to laugh a lot, smile away
You'll have to laugh a lot
Track Name: Shaving Like Daddy
I begin this little song telling you
One spicy thing or two
Everywhere I'll go, anywhere I've been
Without a Daddy

I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is
A kid becomes a man when he's shaving like his Daddy
My friends David and Dale shaving like their Daddy
I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is

Being a male lying to be so strong
Women are much stronger than you
When the coward meets the mirror
He feels all alone, all alone

Sometimes I see some good Daddies
Playing and laughing with their babies
These scenes make me cry and hope that
All the fathers in the world love their children

I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is
A kid becomes a man when he's shaving like his Daddy
My friends David and Dale shaving like their Daddy
I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is

I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is
A kid becomes a man when he's shaving like his Daddy
My friends David and Dale shaving like their Daddy
I'll never know what shaving like a Daddy is

Love you Mummy
Track Name: Whatever That Means
Look around they're telling me
Our world is dying
Whatever that means
I look around all I can see is you and I
Whatever that means
Some bloody stars can hit the sky
I've got your heart
Whatever that means
An army of shadows can burn our land
I'll see their fire in your eyes

Whatever that means

Pray

Maybe life will give our love a chance to live anyway
Whatever that means
Maybe love will give our life a chance to stay as today

If life is choosing what our love can be
Just take my hand
Whatever that means
There's no need to plan a destiny
It's writing on today
Whatever that means
Now you see baby that some people love to break
The purest things
Whatever that means
But we know a place in a faraway space
Just grab my hair
Whatever that means

Maybe life will give our love a chance to live anyway
Whatever that means
Maybe love will give our life a chance to stay as today
Track Name: Killed By A Kid
It was on Saturday
That day the summer reigned
I was taking a break
And felt a bit depressed

Then came this unexpected sound
From behind that dirty wall

Few kids were playing around
Soldiers and magicians
Dragons flying in line
I saw their wonderland

Then one of them got close to me
Sir, would you play the dead old tree ?

Killed by a kid
Wasn't prepared to
If life could help me remember for a minute
That kids can hurt us too

I took my jacket off
And threw my tie and phone
My new friends had a laugh
As they see me jump and roll
My problems seemed so far away
Oh how I wished I could stay there

Then came suspicious eyes
A lady passing by
Our laugh was a bit too loud
The witch called 911
And then the cops arrested me
Freedom is only in our dreams

Killed by a kid
Wasn't prepared to
If life could help me remember for a minute
That kids can hurt us too
Track Name: Enlightened Highway
I have burnt all my money
It couldn't help reaching my goal
For a moment I've regretted it
But I've had a vision in the smoke

A sunny enlightened highway
And the time became the road
A pure light on my baby
We're driving free to the unknown

The freedom thrills my brain out
And my soul cries to that sun
No need to find a way out
It's time to see what life is made for

I see god my brother
I see life itself

The worst is behind us now
Never felt so good before
My eyes are about to cry now
It's the tears of a newborn

Our trip is going to end now
I can see the rainy road
Now baby take off your seatbelt
We're gonna free our souls together
Together...
