|Stereolab – Emperor Tomato Ketchup Lyrics||17 years ago|
The comings and goings, labyrinth, well who's this I see?
The exit it is there, I see it, we're not too, the exit I see it, it is there, we're not too
(unfinished sentence, probably means we're not too far)
Much too close from across, thick walls I can do it.
To bring down the screens of deception, of deception.
Holding to emptiness, to smoke the balls are burst, start everything over.
What will we want to see? The curtain rise, silence is golden, I disagree.
To not make an effort and yawn a lot, to be able to rise up and salute you.
We are not pigeons, perhaps idiots, reality in another way.
|Stereolab – The Emergency Kisses Lyrics||17 years ago|
what I wouldn't give
to be once more
sitting on a bench
at the park with you
the bottom of my heart
and ther all the colors
and then I saw
it huddled up
against the void
tenderness is finite
the violent caress
|Stereolab – Eloge D'Eros Lyrics||17 years ago|
no, in fact nothing is more precious to me
tan to make myself the best I can be
seeing the attention he paid to my beauty
I thought it was a godsend for me
I surely made of this flower of my beauty
a tremendously advantageous idea
thus it is a matter of love's passion
its nature, its virtues, its twists and turns
beauty is the splendour of truth, oh yeah!
beauty is the splendour of truth, oh yeah
it's true that its feet are so delicate
as it is not on earth that it moves
halfway between madness and wisdom
it walks on the heads of men
|Stereolab – Double Rocker Lyrics||17 years ago|
Yes you are pure joy,
The square of butter
That makes life so delicious.
(Open up your heart, open up my heart)
Forgive me I've resisted so,
Our reflection has scared me so.
There your heart.
You're the one that gives it its deep taste.
(Open up my heart, open up your heart)
Fear leaves me, I can surrender my self,
I can feelsmell, and finally love you.
There your mouth.
The heat rises in the abdomen,
You feed it and the fire awakens.
I was of ice, within ice,
Completely part of the mass.
The fire crackles, it has found the bones,
The flames dance, they give me back strength.
Your increasing heat
Made me melt, liberates me.
|Stereolab – Diagonals Lyrics||17 years ago|
Remember the vacation
Vacation of the petty
That seeks to resemble
The Great bourgeoisie
Through which difference
Can they be distinguished?
Their imprudent tortures
Or passionate lives
Lives of addiction
Or very small people
Return to the importance
Of their dizzy lives
A moment of vacation
Nothing after forbidden
Moment of independance
And how beautiful life is!
A moment of vacation
To forget your worries
To embrace the abundance
That life has to Confer
I want us to move on
That we take some distance
Divisions bore me
And hurray for Harmonies!
