In life sometimes the wonderful
go under stress and crack in the back
A song as obscure as a whale’s goes
fast away

Hear those echoes being raised
rip my eardrum from my head

I used to roll my wheels on the fast lane
couldn’t tell the bad from the nice
Hey babe join me on my skid ride
on thin ice

See that light passing through
Ice opaque sticks like glue

If time is on your side and helps you
carve your track with huge success
lasting long looking up high
called luck

If space is ample beneath your feet
and you’ve taken the millionth walk in the very
same terrain do you feel proud
sedated as a rock

At first we painted a landscape to ourselves
tricky things kept somewhere else
mountain lines and riverbeds
and a few colors in subtractive sense

Chopped down our childhood trees
bonfired the bench of our first kiss

Baby when i met you it was all
already falling apart
being with you was like pollen to the bee
or maybe meat to the shark

Touch my skin and feel my heart
can you heal the crack in the back
Touch my skin and feel my heart
Can you heal the crack in the back


from Zanó (2017), released January 15, 2017
