crime in the pale moonligh

On the bar is closing
And the lights are off
Only sky is tense
And I can't feel my empty car

Don't you get too distant
But don't you get too close
Why don't you kiss me good night
No need to be polite

You are intoxicating
You're such a pretty girl
I'm falling
And in a little while, a little while you'll do it too
Oh it's too late to stay here too early to go home
Is it sex? Is it love? Or is it alcohol?
Or is it a crime in pale moonlight
A crime in pale moonlight
A crime in pale moonlight

You make it look so easy
So why is it so damn hard?
Please throw (in the towell ?)
Let's just go home [3x]



down the river

Drifting down the river
I'm floating down the stream
My girl has got some junk no ticket and no plan
And box with a pair of silver dice
To make decisions on a life
Well she has got to be the one Who finally drives me around the bent

This is the beginning of a beautiful day
Thing are easy on the river “Less serious”, river saying
I want to jump into the water
Lose my money, lose my head
Or what's left of it
And by my girl again
Settle down to the country
Until I die of boredom

I don't care
So what if it rains today!
I got my map, I got my wand
Do really wanna hear about the one next thought someday?
I don't care
So what if the politicians maintain a lie today
To follow up a new world And anyone who's anyone
Can pay their way into oblivion

I want to jump into the water
Lose my money, lose my head or what's left of it
And by my girl again
Settle down, live in peace
Until I die of boredom
Oh! Until I die of boredom
Oh! Into oblivion Oh! Into oblivion


Hope to Hear Back Soon, Honey

I want to live forever
I want to (fly us ?) together
I want to look into the sky and find a star
I want send a letter
One through the rainy weather
I want to put it in a post and hope to hear back soon


When a rain make dirty streets
And dirty (lines ?)
And dirty feet
Trying not to think to ??? about it
I hope to hear back soon, honey

There is a letter waiting
My heart is (contemplating ?)
I want to know just what to read between the lines
???
???
?? to find out it wasn't you

When a rain make dirty streets
And dirty (lines ?)
And dirty feet
Trying not to ??? to think about it
I hope to hear back soon, honey


in my car

In my car
? flashing pass me
Speeding card
(Fine as long ?) my money could buy
I drive so fast
All the colors move around me
In my past no regrets

I'm a star
Of my own movie ???
You may laugh
But ?? as well proof you're wrong
Cold champange
And many other kinds of ???
All night long no regrets

In my car
Traveling over border line
It's not far to a live a little (quite life ?)
No distress with your faithless arm around me
And in my heart there is no regrets

    15/Jul/2005 Atom™ and Burnt Friedman release a new FLANGER album on Nonplace ... This new Flanger album is all about re-imagining a period when music was still playful in itself - because back then, there was just no reason to be too serious about it. Back then, people would come to call their songs Spirituals, for their inspiration to sing and play them came from above and would leave them in high spirits. Which was all the more reason to sing and play their songs. As Atom™, one of the two main players behind the Flanger project, put it, Spirituals goes back to a time when music was recorded in an almost documentary manner, when such things as production and recording techniques and technology did not yet exist - and therefore did not influence the nature of the musical creation itself. One could define it as a musically naive period, historically the last time music contained something like an immaculate, innocent spirit. It is this spirit which Atom™ and his long-time Flanger comrade, Burnt Friedman, are trying to catch. Only that it's nearly a century onward, and they are doing it their own global way. Over the last three years, both have recorded material, sending their efforts back and forth electronically between their studios in Santiago de Chile and Cologne de Germany. All the while, both kept touring the world with their diverse musical projects, always carrying their mobile recording units along to have musicians from many corners of the world play with them. Much like the fin-de-siecle researchers who recorded the first Spirituals. Only that afterwards, both would bend the recorded material, give it a little twist to this side and that - be playful just like in the olden days, but with the use of modern instruments. This album is not about re-constructing endless virtuoso solos via mere knob-twiddling. With Spirituals, Flanger first of all want to explore and relive the emotional sides of this jazz-before-jazz, its moods and sentiments. As Friedman points out, the album may very well be seen as the restoration of a lost sensibility.

    Drifting down the river I'm floating down the stream ? I'm boxed with a pair of silver dice To make decisions on a life Well (?) she has got to be one ? This is the beginning of a beautiful day Thing are easy on the river The it is riverside I want to jump into the water There's my money lose, my head I once left at it And by my girl again Settle down to the country Until I die upon her I don't care So why I'm the (?) today I got my map, I got my wand Do really wanna hear about the one next thousand days? I don't care So why do the politicians mantain a lot today To follow up a new world? And anyone curse anyone Can pay the way into oblivion I want to jump into the water There's my money lose, my head I once left at it And by my girl again Settle down, live in peace Until I die upon her Until I die upon her Until oblivion Into oblivion Goddamn difficult lyrics!!
