ST-CLEMENTINE-ON-TEA-AND-CROISSANTS

Where is your son?
Where did he go?
Where is your son?
Where did he go?
Sweet Sugar Stranger
Where did he go?
I am asking you, where did he go?
Where did you leave him?
Do you know where he is now?
Do you care?
Go look for your son
For even he who has no son looks for a different
Kind of son to be their son
Little Clementine is no tea and croissant

QUIVER A LITTLE

Talk to me friend, talk to me, talk to me
I am listening to your advice
Slowly, slowly, please, slowly,
We have a lot of time
Sometimes I would wish that you were I
To see clearly, not just visualize
Many people said
Oh I’m lost, I’m a bastard, Oh I’m lost
Those same people pray,
For the best, for their own brothers,
So why would I quiver but quiver a little,
Then burst in laughter

Read all the books and you will find
Nothing new has been hidden underneath the sun
Integrity is sometimes hard to climb
But if I look up, not down, and maybe who knows
I might go a bit further up there
Many people will say
Oh you’re lost, you are a bastard, you’re lost
Those same people pray
For the best, for their own sisters
And so I will only quiver a little,
Then burst in laughter

Life is as cold not literally as in Greenland
Where snowfall is the norm
As opposed to the ray of sunlight
But, like the boy who woke up one night
To see his poor mother on the floor
And he screamed, “Mother, wake up!”
So why would you waste a lot of you energy
On what people might say
Just quiver a little,
Then burst in laughter
Quiver a little then get back to your stride

NEMESIS

If I held my breath on you,
I would have died a thousand times
And if chewing was to show you how much I cared
I would probably be wearing dentures by now

If I held my breath on you,
I would have died a thousand times
And if chewing was to show you how much I cared
I would probably be wearing dentures by now

Promises broken
Nemesis our token
So you turn around and march on out to your new home
Wherever you’ve gone darling,
Please don’t you ever forget to

Treat others the way, you want to be treated
Remember your days are fully numbered

March on

If you held your breath on me
You would have died a million times
And if chewing was to show me how much you cared
You would have probably swallowed
Your tongue by now

All I’m trying to say darling,
Is that you know very well
That I left her for you
Now I guess you are doing the same old,
Same thing to me now

These days Hennessy dries my veins
As our genesis smiles back at me
Now heresy might be your new fate, faith
Whatever you‘ve chosen to believe in darling
Don’t you ever forget to

Treat others the way, you want to be treated
Remember your days are fully numbered

Treat others the way, you will want to be treated
Remember your days are fully numbered

Can’t say anything for you no more
Nemesis is on your case, darling
Next time,
Treat others the way you want to be treated
Otherwise you’ll get your punishment
And life ain’t a bitch,
Nemesis is,
Is the mother of karma

So long you run

LONDON

Now as I sit on the back of this grey caravan
Tomorrow I will probably be
Jumping Parisian metro barriers with
A bottle in his hand

Sparkling, sparkling water mixed with
Peaches and rhum
Honestly I don’t drink but if I did this sure will
Be my favorite punch, he said

Walk out the door with her
And he could see everyone
Dressed in black a class
That seems too far too fetched

She said, “Look at you, look at you, the game is over,
The cup is full, stop praying for more exposure”

“It is obvious that you are trying,
Dubious stop or you will die here,
You’re pretending but no one is buying”

London is calling you, what are you waiting for,
What you searching for?
London is all in you, why are you denying the truth?
“Well I might be boring you” he said
“Although it’s not clear as the morning due,
When my preferred ways are not happening,
I won’t under estimate whom I am capable of becoming”

History will be made to day is written
Boldly on his face
So clear you could hardly miss it,
You could hardly miss it.

For transcending the barriers of you,
Yesterday was and is the dream
On a road where Cleopatra comes and goes
Like fishes caught in ponds then thrown back for fun

She said, “look at you, look at you, just pick a fleet
Your cup is full, what have you not yet achieved?”

“It is obvious that you are trying, dubious stop or you will die here, your pretending but no one is buying”

London is calling you, what are you waiting for,
What you searching for?
London is all in you, why are you in denial of the truth?
“I might be boring you”, he said,
“Although it’s not clear as the morning due,
When my preferred ways are not happening,
I won’t underestimate who I am capable of becoming”

GONE

I remember walking down the A406
Holding bags of mother sent cornflakes
Guessing somebody might have noticed
A little boy big head small ears
Whilst making a ballad through a Sunday mist
Sure we’ve all been there, done it
Prepare a little time to reminisce
On all that eventually falls into nothingness

Oh, all will be gone
After all
Before we all get to the knowing
All will be gone

I went back to where life seemed promising at first
Gambling on memory’s lane
I tried a trip through all the pavements and fields
But I lost cause all had changed
Like the road I used to cross to school
Is now full of prostitutes
No wonder why the priest is dead
No wonder why the priest is dead
Oh brother, when did you get married?
Neighbours, where did you vanish to?
If it was to a wonderland,
Well, it’s not known to my kind, mankind

All will be gone
After all
Before we all get to the knowing
All will be gone

And what about relationship?
What is it about relationships that we just don’t get?
Here we are always thinking we’ve learnt
Only to get smacked and realize we are
But mere students of life
And feels like
We’ve been fighting a lost battle
To have always realize at the end of it all
It feels like
We’ve been brought to a royal banquet,
Just to be served a brew and a wretched floor
But I say
It doesn’t matter anymore,
It doesn’t matter
All because I’m here now
I can’t go back, it’s too late
And so I will get it all going,
Whilst it all gets lost and gone.

CORNERSTONE

I’m alone in a box of stone
When all is said and done
As the wind blows to the East from the West
Unto this bed my tears have their solemn rest

I am lonely, alone in a box of stone
They claimed to love me, but they’re all wrong
For I have been lonely, alone in a box of my own
And this is the place I will say I’ve only belonged
It’s my home

It wasn’t easy getting used to this ; I used to scream
It’s not true that it’s only when a door is locked
That nobody enters
Cause mine had been opened till your own demise
But none had come, well who am I?
What have I done?

I have been lonely, alone in a box of my own
They claim to be near me but they’re all lying
For I have been lonely, alone in a box of stone
And this is place I now belong

Home home home home home

Friends I have met, lovers have slept and wept
Promises to stay had never been kept
This bare truth of which most won’t share,
I hope you share

Cause I’ve been lonely, alone in a box of my own
They claimed to love me
And be near me, but they’re all lying
I have been lonely, alone in a box of stone
And this is the place I now belong

It’s my home.

CONDOLENCE

I swear, you’ve seen me
You’ve seen me here before
And so don’t tell it, don’t tell it otherwise

This voice, this particular voice
Yes, you’ve heard it before, before
And so don’t you dare tell it,
Don’t you dare tell it otherwise

No wonder, why the road seems so long
Cause I had done it all before
And I won
You felt this feeling, tell me don’t be ashamed
You felt it before, before
And so don’t tell me
Don’t tell me otherwise

I almost forgot, foolish me, I almost forgot
Where I am from we see the rain
Before the rain even starts to rain

No wonder why you’ve been buggering me
This walk is a previous journey

And I won
Before I was born there was a storm
Before that storm there was fire
Burning everywhere,
And everything became nothing again
And then out of nothing
Out of absolutely nothing, I, Benjamin, I was born
So that when I become someone one day
I will always remember that I came from nothing

No wonder, why you’ve been buggering me
This walk, it’s a previous journey

And no wonder why the road seems so long
Cause I had done it all before

And I won

I’m sending my condolence
I’m sending my condolence to fear
I’m sending my condolence
I’m sending my condolence to insecurities
You should know by now
You should know by now
That I just don’t care
For what you might say
Might bring someone downhill
I’m sending my condolence
To fear
I’m sending my condolence
To insecurities

ADIOS

Adios
Adios
Adios to your afternoon
Tonight I will be forever
Following the colosseum moon
Into a certain room

Adios
Adios
I am sorry for quickly jumping into the train
I waited but no one came
You’re just a little bit too late

The decision is mine
The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Let the lesson be mine
The decision is mine
The decision is mine
Cause the vision is mine
The vision is mine

Adios
Yes, goodbye, adios
Adios to the little child in me
Who kept on blaming everyone else
Instead facing his own defeat in Edmonton
After all, why should I regret
If it wasn’t for the mistakes we made yesterday?
Where would we be by now?

The decision is mine
The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Let the lesson be mine
The decision was hard
The decision was hard
Cause the vision is mine
The vision is mine

Lest the trees cease breathing
Lest all the bees cease breeding
And all the salts in the dead sea ferment to honey

Until then, I will be forever
Chasing it all till the very end

The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Cause the vision is mine
The decision is mine
So let the lesson be mine
Cause the vision is mine
