about

I brought myself to town late at night. I cadged a cigarette off a tramp and took a seat on the railings till all that noize and fuss at the station made me wanna lurk somewhere in the dark. I was roaming a couple of hours before I managed to find a decent bar which offered booze I could afford to get up to the moment. Down in the cellar among fools and drunkards, trapped between stench of cheap liqueurs and acrid smoke I saw a nice chick who dragged me out in the streets. We hung out for a while and later on made out near a deserted car park on junk. We had a really good time. I lost her somewhere around downtown, crawling there, followed by a police car.

Nothing can bring me down. I like this music. I call myself a City Hound. They call me Absent One.

Track Name: Splendour Station
Get some whiskey at the bar and play some blackjack.
When the shit hits the fan – there’s a backdoor
Mr. Daniel, do you mind if I call you Jack?
There’re so many things here that I still adore.
Like opportunity to talk and to tank up,
To shine as a star or to burn out.
Stick’em up! Don’t move! It’s a cleanup!
Love is a card game, such a pointless rout.

We are short of destination.
Sha-la-la-la!
We arrive at “Splendour” station.
Sha-la-la-la!
Electro thunder and acid rain,
I’ve got all things to waste today!
Limitations, fluctuation, everything as you say.

At the table in the corner in a red dress
There’s a woman with a glance of a porn star.
I can’t bare this stress! Can’t bare this stress –
There’s a woman with a glance of a porn star.
She does nothing to provoke.
She puts her hand in a cookie jar.
I float across the room along with exhaled smoke.
She is a woman with a glance of a porn star.
Track Name: Night and City
We are frozen to the bone.
There is no more place like home.
Don’t stop ever! Cause you know,
I will never let you go.
Yeah, alright, we’re on our own.
Our future is unknown.
Don’t stand as if turned to stone!
Just can’t let you be alone.

Come along with me lil’ kitty -
I will show you Night and City!
Take my hand and sing a ditty,
Cause tonight we are so pretty!
Come along with me lil’ kitty -
Be my night, I’ll be your city.
Take my hand and sing a ditty,
Cause tonight we are so pretty!

I will guide you to a place,
There’re no others, there’s no chase,
There is just enough of space for both of us.
Don’t be scared anymore!
There is no more word “before”.
Shut this door and forget your past.

What if I’m in love with you?
What if you do love me too?
What if I’m in love with you?
What if it’s true?
For real, babe!
Track Name: Go Places
Every day you rout,
Every night you rise.
Nothing can put out
Fires in your eyes.
You say that (all idols are gone.
I play over and over my favorite song.
I don’t know where I belong
But I can go no wrong).

Go places in the midnight!
New faces in the moonlight.
Go places! I’m your satellite.
Go places, girl! Go places, girl!

You like to be so deranged.
You like to waste your time.
Nothing really has changed
Since 1969.
(I like rock, I cry for more,
I tore my jeans…) A lovely whore!
They ask you, gal, what the hell
Do you need it for?

A while ago I met a girl and she sad:
(Hello)
She was so nice and her eyes just paralyzed.
She said:
(Let’s go, don’t be a bore!
I’ll show you all, cause you can have it all.)
She said: (Wake up!)
She said: (Get up!)
She said: (Get up!)

Cause we are going places in the midnight!
We’ll see new faces in the moonlight.
We are going places! I’m your satellite.
We are going places, yes we are!
We are going places, yes we are!
We are going places in the midnight!
We’ll see new faces in the moonlight.
We are going places! Be my satellite.
We are going places, yeah, babe.
We are going places, yeah, babe.
We are going places!
Track Name: Hollywood
That’s what I like, that’s where I go!
I’m alone in a killing zone.
I guess she’s killing me.
Yeah, she’s killing me
But she is looking fine, baby.
That’s too slow. I don’t know
What to do or where to go.
That is so sad.
But she is looking fine.
Just like young Sharon Stone.

I see it in her eyes, my Hollywood.
(Hollywood)
My, mama, my, my Hollywood.
(Hollywood)

Oh, she’s so special.
I know she’s the one,
The one I need tonight.
She is looking fine.
That is it!
That’s what I need!
That’s passion.
Love in the street.
Cast your love on me, babe!
See, this is speed and this is weed
And I bleed, baby.

I see it in her eyes, my Hollywood.
(Hollywood)
My, mama, my, my Hollywood.
(Hollywood)
I see it in her eyes, I know, she would
Cause she is looking good.
Oh, baby, baby, Hollywood!
(Hollywood)
Track Name: Car Park
I hear this music.
The music’s just fine
Do you hear this music?
It will totally do just for you and I.
I say, it’s great to be with you.
I like you, yes, I like you.
It does not matter at all
If I’m wearing one shoe.

It’s car park. Radio lights going dim.
Headlights flickering on your beautiful face.
You’re smiling, I guess, we’re totally in love.

(Close your eyes now
And feel the love within.
Close your eyes now
And breathe in.
I feel like living forever.
Perfect night for perfect guys.
We are so hot.
We are so nice).

It’s car park. Radio lights going dim.
Headlights flickering on your beautiful face.
You’re smiling, I guess, we’re totally in love on heroin.

It’s car park. We’re listening to the radio.
Headlights are flickering on our faces.
We are the cool guys, the good guys.
We are beautiful and we love each other.
And we smile.
Track Name: Wonder Boy
So many contradictions.
Inherent contradictions.
Every single animal knows its place
But for me there are so many ways.
I’m so tired of contradictions.
I just wanna live my life.
I wanna live a perfect life!
All I need is a sudden success.
I don’t care if I look like a mess.
I just want my perfect life.
But so many contradictions.
Inherent contradiction.
Every single animal knows its place
But for me there are so many ways.
Ha, too many contradictions.

Wonder boy, my homeless little wanderer,
I need your powers in my play.
Wonder boy, my homeless little wonder,
Make my low spirits go away!

I wanna buy a TV.
I wanna watch some of BBC.
But my rakish style of living
Is not always that forgiving.
Oh, man, I want my new TV.
Look man, that’s complicated.
So, hm-hm, complicated.
I was reaching for a gun
When I saw a dancing bum.
Oh, baby, he had so much fun!

Wonder boy, oh wonder,
Give me joy and thunder!
Together we can touch the stars tonight.
When you’re away – I run astray.
Wonder boy… Wonder boy!
Track Name: Colors
You must believe me.
Suspicions grow like weed.
I can’t remember nothing
Of what I did.
I knew that girl, a friend of mine,
Also she was a game.
You say, I did that? But for what?
For money, power, fame?
I heard someone was screaming,
The blood was everywhere.
I knew the gun was in my hand,
And it was right there.
When I came to myself
She was already dead.
She was lying in her bed
With a bullet in her head.

The colors of the picture faded
From being kept in light.
Today so many men are willing
To shoot me on sight.

They think, I am a wild beast.
An evil, brutal lad.
I think in my head:
If only I was mad
I could have done so many things -
The world could be my dream,
I’d be the first man live in space,
My breath would make your mirror dim.
As emerging from nowhere
Snowflakes dissolve in pools.
It seems like I was born
To break all human rules.
If so then let it be
The fate can’t be denied.
A human need to prove his right.
The right to walk his night.
Track Name: Other Side
Someone dances for the money.
Someone dances to the beat.
Let’s go dance to my place honey –
That’s what I need!
Everybody has style.
Everybody has a taste.
The only thing that is worthwhile
Is a life to waste.

I go no limit, sister; I take a ride to the other side.
I’ve got no fear, sister; meet you tonight on the other side.

Going crazy in the morning -
Could be better, still not bad.
Don’t give a damn for a global warming.
We share one bed.
And from 7 to 11 chasing my bedbugs,
No hangover in my heaven,
Free liqueur and drugs.

Now I take a ride.
Sweet baby, now I take a ride…
Track Name: Downtown
Street lamp goes on.
I'm walking the main street.
That’s quite high…
Still I've got a strange feeling that I'm actually going down
Down, down, down, down, baby, yeah!

I'm going downtown,
Nothing can bring me down.
I like this music,
I like this sound.
I want everything
Right here, right now.
I want it now.

I'm going downtown,
Nothing can bring me down.
I like this music,
I like this sound.
Beauty surrounds,
Beauty's ahead.
I don't care
If I'm already dead.

I'm a city hound, babe,
I'm a city hound.
I bark at passers-by
And howl at the moon.
I'm a city hound,
A city hound.
I like it loud.
Make it loud
Cause I'm a city hound, babe,
A city hound.
I like it loud.
Make it loud
Cause city hounds,
They like this sounds.

Good, good, good,
I'm going downtown
Good, good, good,
I'm going downtown
Good, good, good,
I'm going
Yeah, baby, good, good, good,
I'm going
Downtown.

Side street - my street
Side walk – that is my seat
Wild beat baby, it's a wild beat.
Wild beat, baby! No shit!
Track Name: Dark Corners
You, you spit on me,
While I drink “Delasy”.
I, I never loved you,
Never loved you, no,
But I've always liked
The way you smell.

You, you lay on me
Your sacred fantasy.
While I, I never loved you,
Never loved you, no,
But I've always liked
The way you smell.

In my room
Sitting in a dark corner,
I guess I've always been alone.
There is no one by my side
Since my old cat died
It’s in my room
I don't pretend,
I lick it, it tastes like sand.
Is it friend or is it white?
Maybe snowflakes outside.
