‘MIRRORS & SHADE’ CD - 2004

Mirrors and shade

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


The grin on my face ties me over the days without you


I stay out of trouble while I’m seeing double

It makes me scream inside!


ALL THIS PAIN JUST KEEPS ON GROWING

IN MY MIND: MIRRORS & SHADE.

ALL THIS PAIN JUST KEEPS ON GROWING

IN MY MIND: MIRRORS & SHADE.


Life’s smell’s an intrusion, raised and doped with illusion.

Download god!


I know I’m in trouble when I’m seeing double

Come on, make me scream!


ALL THIS PAIN JUST KEEPS ON GROWING

IN MY MIND: MIRRORS & SHADE.

ALL THIS PAIN JUST KEEPS ON GROWING

IN MY MIND: MIRRORS & SHADE.

Still

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


All these days that I strive so hard to calm the waves

Of the oceans and seas with the palm of my hand


Every day like a lifetime – oh, save me a piece, a piece of the cake

Past, just like a haze – trying all so hard to cling to fake


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.


A sunny autumn day – drifting on the heath, nothing to say

The cars on the shore sing in the breeze,

Rushing all so fast to pay the lease


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.


Open my mind’s eye and see the coat that you wore on the day

When you made me laugh like no one ever could before!


And still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing to work out.

Still, I haven’t worked it out that there’s nothing, There’s nothing.

All I can really do now is laugh - The rest is, the rest is, the rest is

All I can really do now is cry - The rest is, the rest is,

the rest is STILL, STILL – THERE’S NOTHING...

You could

(Words and Music by ike Moriz)


I’m on the way to the surface -

Just to drown in you - in your eyes of grey.

How come I know all about you -

Since we never met - a sharp glance ago?


I dreamed you into my life

Past the crowd in the void – into my life!

Ah-uh


YOU ARE THE SEA - YOU ARE THE SUN

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE

YOU ARE THE SEA - YOU ARE THE SUN

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE


I’m lost in the rain; it’s always the same

Oh, it’s such a shame,

Nothing and no one to blame,


We’re lost in the rain; it’s always the same

Playing the game and nil and no one to blame

Oh-uh-oh


YOU ARE THE SEA - YOU ARE THE SUN

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE

YOU ARE THE SEA - YOU ARE THE SUN

YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE


YOU COULD THRILL ME - YOU COULD KISS ME

YOU COULD KILL ME - YOU COULD MISS ME


WE’RE LOST IN THE RAIN IT’S ALWAYS THE SAME!


YOU COULD BE YOU – I COULD BE I  - YOU COULD BE YOU

YOU COULD BE YOU – I COULD BE I  - YOU COULD BE YOU

Oh boy, oh boy, mmm

Another Day

(Words and music by ike Moriz)


Dust swirls in the breeze

Pink rays lick concrete

Cold smells crawl out the tunnels

It’s the beginning

Of another day

Another day


Oh – I know it’s not real

I just know what I feel

Oh – I know it’s not real

I just know what I feel


Sucking up another volume of this blood red poetry

Well, my lies keep on fading dried out in the sticky rain

Like a crushed piece of flesh on the boiling motorway

No beginning

Like the end

The great, grand end

With your face in the sand


Oh – I know it’s not real

I just know what I feel

Oh – I know it’s not real

I just know what I feel

Fall into the sun

(Words and music by ike Moriz)


I see the light at the centre of this cosmic flight.

Since you’ve been gone it’s been hysterical fun!


I feel the sun, golden beams on the tip of my tongue.

Smashing through concrete walls, pulled by shrill siren calls!


FALL INTO THE SUN

FALL INTO THE SUN

BE ONE! BE GONE!


Avalon, beyond the borders of this beauty salon,

That’s where I’ll go!

That’s where I’ll glow!

That’s where I’ll live - live my show!

Oh, oh, oh-oh.

Uh-uh-uh-uh!


FALL INTO THE SUN

FALL INTO THE SUN

BE ONE! BE GONE!


That’s where I’ll go!

That’s where I’ll glow!

That’s where I’ll live - live my show!

Oh, oh, oh-oh.

Uh-uh-uh-uh!


FALL INTO THE SUN

FALL INTO THE SUN

BE ONE! BE GONE!

Flame Blue

(Words AND MUSIC by ike Moriz)


My tragic dove calls again

Under the milky starless sky

You burn our tie – fake a cry

Then fly away. Burn me!


Your flaming tongue strikes again

Like the insect’s deadly flight

Into the light – bright, holy white

I crave your kissing bite. Fool me!


FOOL ME – BURN ME FLAME BLUE

FOOL ME – BURN ME FLAME BLUE


How did we cross this raging stream of time?

It couldn’t have been our love

Our dying dove – falling from above

Drowning in the waves. Oh, take me, too!


FOOL ME – BURN ME FLAME BLUE

FOOL ME – BURN ME FLAME BLUE


Your razor lips

They slide over my face

Your breath burns my flesh

Your claws tear out my ribs


And still I crave for more!

And still I crave for more!

And still I crave for more!

And still I crave for more!

Our gold

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


Digging deep in noble ashes

Like the solemn faced clown prepares his shows.

No glimmering rainbow at the end of the tunnel

But pale tongues, too numb to moan,

A hotbed of extinct cravings, acid hunger in their dead bones,

Fame beast – worn out, worn well

Last but not least we’ll break the spell


There can’t be no more repetition

There won’t be no more repetition

And I say: No, no, no, no - no, no


THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD


In sleepless sweaty nights their skin smells of dead cells.

The stars shiver in their beds, too fond of their grandeur.


Sisyphus cracked the rock and built himself a big, big castle.

Now he runs up and down the stairs

longing to be blessed with pain again.



THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

THIS SECOND IS OURS - THIS TIME IS OUR GOLD

Fake fatale

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


It’s been raining milk and fish today,

Gizmo powers are at work.

Feel so subtle all a glow today,

Give me space to settle down.

Drift in circles – all makes sense today,

Shadows in the maze are doors.


Beyond all this cliché flows the soul.

Beyond all this fear is pure joy.


DON’T FAKE ANYMORE / DON’T TAKE ANYMORE

DON’T FAKE ANYMORE / DON’T TAKE ANYMORE

Ah - ah, ah / ah - ah, ah / ah -ah, ah / ah - ah, ah

It will come to you from the sea

In colors vague and frowned.

Or it will hit you in the traffic fumes

Drowned in the London sound.


Beyond all this noise flows the soul.

Beyond all this fear are you and I.


DON’T FAKE ANYMORE / DON’T TAKE ANYMORE

DON’T FAKE ANYMORE / DON’T TAKE ANYMORE

THERE’S TOO MUCH AT STAKE THIS TIME

THERE’S TOO MUCH YOU COULD BREAK THIS TIME

Visionary

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


Uncertain of what’s happening to me

Same day; same play

I see you shiver in the wind

Catch your thoughts – seal my mind


VISIONARY – BREAKING DOWN

WALLS OF ICE & STONE & TIME

& THOUGHT


The sun is burning on my face

Blisters come – blisters go

I hold your head within my hands

Close my eyes – close your eyes


I feel the heat is pulling me

To places where I cannot be

I’m dreaming all my life away

In one day...


VISIONARY – BREAKING DOWN

WALLS OF ICE & STONE & TIME

& THOUGHT

Drowning (In London Town)

(Words AND music by ike Moriz)


In London Town the sky Is brown –

It makes me dizzy.

I look at you; you’re skinny too,

We’re gonna faint now.

In London Town we shake around

As if on fire

Time rushes by, some blur memories, then we fly –

I cannot stand the rain!


I FEEL THE SAME AS YOU DO NOW:

DROWNING IN THE RAIN!

I FEEL THE SAME AS YOU DO NOW:

DROWNING IN THE RAIN!


You take the pill that makes you ill

Cause you love falling.

In London Town they shot the clown

Whose jokes were funny,


Time rushes by, some blur memories, then we fly –

I cannot stand the rain!


I FEEL THE SAME AS YOU DO NOW:

DROWNING IN THE RAIN!

I FEEL THE SAME AS YOU DO NOW:

DROWNING IN THE RAIN!
