TELL MY MOTHER \
DON'T FORGET TO SHUT THE DOOR

Tell my mother that I am going away

Far from the animal

That has been brought up in my veins

Sharing the edges of your facial features

One at a time, galloping past

The feathered lines

Burning me.

 

Tell my mother that I am going away.

 

The pink television’s blur

On it shows a man in sulphur

Fortune telling a feebled mother

That her hair’s golden crisp of anger

 

But then a stranger comes gushing in

Slide his feet on silky chin

Made of wool and holy sin

So let’s watch some tele

Oh dear Eileen.

 

Hear the cries of antlers

Fishing fathers out sea of danger

Opening of canyon’s laughter

Spitting slime from getting pleasure

 

But don’t forget to shut the door

Moaning flowers of paramour

Singing sinners, joyous galore

Trust in him in thrusting her.

KAMIKAZE KID

The kamikaze kid wakes up

And fills his lungs with air

There is sweat

Running down his face

His face smashed on the chair!

 

The mystifying afterlife

Teaches us humility and grace

But it’s easy to

Fall into

Instant gratification too.

 

So don’t you dare

He will see you anywhere

And don’t you forget

The vultures are in the air

Waiting for you

 

Your hands were made for a purpose

Yet you drown them in sin sucrose

When midnight comes

Follow your eyes

Temptation is evil in disguise

 

So don’t you dare

He will see you anywhere

And don’t you forget

The vultures are in the air

 

And don’t you dare

He will see you anywhere

And don’t you forget

The vultures are in the air

Praying for you

ETERNALLY BARE FEET

Hey darling tell me

Where you’re going now?

By the way

Did you hear?

Your shoelaces are untied

 

Hey darling what’s the dream?

Green grass and

White pickets

By the way

Tell me how?

Your gravity is divine

 

Now I walk

Eternally Bare Feet

Looking for someone

To take away

On infinite sands

And a maze

To get lost into

Now I walk

Eternally Bare Feet

Looking for someone

To take away

On infinite sands

And a maze

To get lost in love

 

Hey darling can you see?

The sky is blue

perpetually

By the way

Did you hear?

You speak in other languages

And I’ve been running on the sidewalk

Turning head towards the Sun

Hoping for the glare to subside

And there the angel appears

Now I walk

Eternally Bare Feet

Looking for someone

To take away

On infinite sands

And a maze

To get lost into

Now I walk

Eternally Bare Feet

Looking for someone

To take away

On infinite sands

And a maze

To get lost into

Now I walk

Eternally Bare Feet

TANAH INI MILIKMU

Kami bersama

Untuk pergi

Abang dan kakak.

Bukit cakaran

Semoga kalian

Tabah dan gagah

 

Jangan kau serahkan suaramu

KAU HINA

Berkawan dengan penipu tua

Engkau tidak pernah tahu

Berkawan dengan pencuri wang

Engkau tidak pernah tahu

 

Perbezaan jahat dengan

Yang baik untuk dirimu

Perbezaan jahat dengan

Yang baik untuk dirimu

Kau Hina

 

Berkawan dengan pencaci Tuhan

Engkau tidak pernah malu

Berkawan dengan si jalang Bulan

Engkau tidak pernah malu

 

Dengan perbuatanmu

Mencuri, mencaci, merogol

Dengan perbuatanmu

Menipu, memukul, bertolol

 

Kau Hina

 

Berkawan dengan si hantu hujan

Engkau tidak pernah mahu

Berkawan dengan si babi hutan

Engkau tidak pernah mahu

 

Berdoa pada Tuhan

Engkau hanya mahu yang senang

Berdoa pada Tuhan

Engkau hanya mahu yang senang

 

Kau Hina

IPOH / INFINITY

Shelter me

From the voices in my head

Shelter me

From my own destruction

 

To infinity

I’ll wash my hands from the blood that reeks

To infinity

I’ll run in circles smiling free

 

Watch your head now

Watch where you go and

Where you leap

  

Shelter me

From my arms that are not here

Shelter me

From my graceful fall in abyss

 

To infinity

I’ll wash my hands from the blood that reeks

To infinity

I’ll run in circles smiling free

 

Watch your head now

Watch where you go and

Where you leap

 

FACELESS NAME

I’ll wake for you now

In the forest

Who is with you now

Is he faceless?

 

And falling

Where was he now?

And falling

What’s his name now?

 

And time and time (again)

You were the ocean

And time and time (again)

I was the tide that you brought

Whistling your name

And time and time (again)

He was the potion

And time and time (again)

I am the ocean

Dawn only comes when

Darkness dies

Fools told me

“Son. Don’t be afraid”

 

And falling

Where was he now?

And falling

Forget his name now

 

And time and time (again)

You were the ocean

And time and time (again)

I was the tide that you brought

Whistling your name

And time and time (again)

He was the potion

And time and time (again)

I am the ocean

SILAP SIAPA

Suasana pagi

Memanggil kesilapan

Oh cahaya Bumi

Mengapa engkau sedih?

 

Benarkah harapan

Disaluti kekuasaan

Oleh sesiapa

Yang menang pertaruhan

 

Cukup sudahlah

Tangan penat mengguli

Oh pakcik bertahanlah

Makin hari, makin pulih

Benarkah harapan

Disaluti kekuasaan

Oleh sesiapa

Yang menang pertaruhan

Silap siapa?

Usaha kita sia-sia

Silap siapa?

Titik peluh tak terkira

Silap siapa?

Usaha kita sia-sia

Silap siapa?

Dah jatuh dipijak juga

 

Silap siapa?

Usaha kita sia-sia

Silap siapa?

Dah jatuh dipijak juga

CORVIDAE

Take your time to waste

Take a deep breath in

Closed eyes they know you well

Do you know your name?

 

A father figure to the world

He became a silent

The patterns on the ground they show

God’s name

Oh

 

A drifter he came to me

He brought the settling sea

“Don’t you worry”; he said

“It’ll all be alright”

 

Fingers caressing my face

Who the hell was he?

Where we fall is where

We will rise again

 

Oh

We drift like a stone

On the rugged lawn

And Corvidae, take me home

She is there

And so is home

We drift like a stone

On the rugged lawn

And Corvidae, take me home

She is there

And so is home

We drift like a stone

On the rugged lawn

And Corvidae, take me home

She is there

And so is home

We drift like a stone

On the rugged lawn

And Corvidae, take me home

She is there

So I must go now

THE FOOL INSIDE THE LIGHT

Look at all the birds go

Yeah it all seems normal

What with all their circles

Murmurations turmoil

Then you came and spoil it all

And your teeth are jarring tall

Telling us about the fall

 

Showing us the open seas

And all the aging trees

Before the laughing bees

Meandering out

You go and buck your feet

Towing in the line for free

Jumping at her awful beat

Balls and all

 

The fool is dancing desperately

I watched you fall in ecstasy

The morning comes

And then you leave again

Have you heard that

The fool is dancing desperately

I watched you fall in ecstasy

The morning comes

And then you leave again

 

The fool inside the light

Joking by the window

Can seem fun and all

Even with your gracious fall

Breaking all the necks and storms

Like the Hitlers of the wars

Caring not for the striped boys

Under cold clouds

 

Showing us the open seas

And all the aging trees

Before the laughing bees

Meandering out

You go and buck your feet

Towing in the line for free

Jumping at her awful beat

Balls and all

Have you heard that

The fool is dancing desperately

I watched you fall in ecstasy

The morning comes

And then you leave again

The fool inside the light
