about

bordeaux lip Switzerland

bordeaux lip sound like pete doherty and the queens of the stone age fighting for the most beautiful girl of the night. though she probably isn't that beautiful. they have commited themselves to celebrating the ugly. with their love-hate-relationship with guitars they do everything the cool kids currently hate: huge and catchy melodies, sung with the desire and the charm of an empty bottle. ... more

Track Name: A Perfume
darling come with me / to lonely places like in documentaries / lets hunt with polar bears / lets sing on ice bergs where unheard voices freeze / im gonna pluck the silence / distill its blossom and then make a perfume of it / so we can take a noseful / everytime were sick but cant afford to say no

darling come with me / where millions of dollars dont have a use at all / where they wont ever find us / and street noise is replaced by caterwaul / im gonna pluck the silence / distill its blossom and then make a perfume of it / so we can take a noseful / everytime were sick but cant afford to say no

like it or believe it / the bite is worse than the bark / she asked if she could ask me something but there was no question mark / she went: i dont care about you being bitter / you can snarl at the one by one / but dont act surprised if once they stop you running riot with your shot gun
Track Name: Maybe Tomorrow
i'd be honest if i didnt fear your laugh / and those emerypapervoices coming back / and i would stand up if i wasnt afraid of heights / i could trip and fall and even break my neck / so maybe tomorrow / maybe tomorrow / i think tomorrow ill begin to try

i would speak up if i wasnt as short as time / and if i knew where to put my shaky hands / and id say yes but i have never heard them ask / if they asked im sure i wouldnt miss that chance / but maybe tomorrow / maybe tomorrow / i think tomorrow ill begin to try

tomorrow im gonna stand up at four o clock in the morning / im gonna have a healthy breakfast and then i go outide / into the forrest where i can breathe in that fresh air ive heard about on tv / and then ill write love letters / love letters to each and every girl i have ever adored / whole books of compliments that wouldnt come across my lips / and after that im gonna travel the world / and visit all the places ive always pretended to know / ill find the time / ill forget the sorrow / ill find the guts / at the latest tomorrow
Track Name: Interlude (An Alien)
a petal drifted lose / from a great magnolia bloom / your face hung in the gloom / floating white and close / we seemed alone / but another bent over you with lips of flame / unknown without a name / hated and yet my brother / your one short moan of pain / was an exorcising spell / the devil flew back to hell / we were alone again / pain / we were alone again / pain / we were alone again
Track Name: On The Quiet
i already hear your handmade china heart hitting the ground / burst to thousand pieces with an earpiercing sound / so im not really sure if i should show you what i have found / does staring at each other make our heartbeat synchronize / she asked: do you think these colors all look different in all eyes / and im not really sure if that sounds foolish or very wise

in my song she sleeps tonight / goes along in peace and quiet / on the quiet / on the quiet

i cut her into pieces and then hide her in a song / a lovely little melody that still feels kind of wrong / cause im not really sure if i could ask you to sing along / her laughter is the chorus to a long and bitter verse / her lips are precious poetry without speaking a word / but im not really sure if im allowed to steal a kiss from her

in my song she sleeps tonight / goes along in peace and quiet / on the quiet / on the quiet

from time to time the echoes of her perfume cross my way / i chase them through my mind trying hard to make them stay / cause im not really sure if i am happy theyll fade away / im not really sure if im happy youll fade away
Track Name: Ifeveryonesunique
we take drugs when we are bored / we dont need to be adored / you told us to follow since we were young / you told us to follow since we were young / now we take drugs when we are bored

we take drugs when we are bored / we dont need to be adored / if everyones unique then im the only one who is not / if everyones unique im the one who is not / now we take drugs when we are bored

i met a girl in the waiting room / her eyes were red but still in bloom / ignorance is bliss i said / she only shrugged and shook her head / wake up / fit in / work / dont complain / love hate / hate love / just play the game / well you could earn a living but you wont learn how to live / in the end well die alone / nothing left of what weve grown / and even if it sounds unfair / the universe wont even care

so we take drugs when we are bored / we dont need to be adored / if everyones unique then im the only one who is not / if everyones unique im the one who is not / now we take drugs when we are bored
