I've done nothing but to stare at the waves and the clouds staring at the sun and the sea and the sky I've seen naked bodies running from the clouds dreaming on the sand and horizon stretch for miles and done nothing but to stare at the waves and the clouds singing at the sun and the sea and the sky I've seen aging bodies lying on their shrouds children shaping sand and women passing by but done nothing but to stare at the waves and the clouds laughing at the sun and the sea and the sky I've seen lifeless bodies burning on the ground waves unshaping sand and women kissing child And done nothing but to stare at the waves and the clouds cursing at the sun and the sea and the sky then found my aching body crying to the sound of the everlasting melody of wives and children's laughs I've done nothing but to stare at the waves and the clouds staring at the sun and the sea and the sky

Why does "pleasure" always rhyme with "never" and "never" with "forever"... while "you" and "me" would never ever fit together? and why does "pleasure" also rhyme withe "over"? The less is more we could dream ever...

baby what good would it ever do? what good would it do? would it ever do? if all I ever cared about was you there’s no good way to say goodbye anyway there’s no good way to say I love you anyway darling what good would you ever be? what good will you be? will you ever be? if all you ever think about is me there’s no good way to say goodbye anyway there’s no good way to say I'll miss you anyway

Just Human 03:04
There's no meaning... no reason no... There's no justice... there is no point... You know it comes the way it goes ain't nothing wrong it's just human There's no feelings... there is no fun... There's no relief... there's no return... You know it kills the way it grows You know it's wrong it's just you man It's just you... but it's human You know it comes the way it goes ain't nothing wrong ain't nothing but you man it's just human it's just you...

screw the world for all I know I’m goin’ on down where the cold wind blows I’m goin’ down for all I know just screw the world and let the thunder roll one cold dead dreamer

it’s funny how when you’re in it it sometimes gets so hard to live but when you’re on your way out how it gets so hard to leave never seen as safe a place stripped of all for your own sake a nameless love a voiceless call the higher I get the higher the walls I’d rather grow insane what have i got to lose? I’d rather burn you than love you it’s funny how when you’re in it it sometimes gets… but once you’re out how it gets… I’d rather burn you than love you what have i got to lose? I'd rather grow insane it’s funny how it sometimes gets so hard to live cause no one ever leaves alive so live a lie alright I’ll say it once again never seen as safe a place stripped of all for your own sake a nameless love a voiceless call the higher I get the higher the walls but still I climb to rise above yeah I’d rather burn you than love you what have i got to lose? I’ve lost my faith I’ve lost my pride I’ve lost my time here I’ve lost my mind lost all my money I’ve lost my life into your arms

"Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone.. Captain can't hold them the way I do Eddie's got a gold mine way above her knees Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone.. Well I've been walking all day long And she's been talking, babe, all day long Looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder... looky looky yonder when the sun 'done gone.."

The Absolute Never Paris, France

"Just screw the World... and let the Thunder roll..."
The Absolute Never is a duet from Paris France that delivers a unique blend of primitive obsessive down to the gutter nervous and filthy kind of Blues as a timeless summoning of the universal storm's infinite power... self proclaimed as "Thunder Blues"
