Little fallen angel (Cooper)
Recorded 14.7.2007 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 17.7.2007 at Prague

Lyrics:

She's walking thru the city with her head up in the clouds
Like a horse that's hard to tame
With big plans for the future she left the place that she called home
I just don't know who's to blame

Another day is over, now it's time to join the queue
For a ticket to the show
Then you can see her dancing, she's a whirlwind on the loose
Ready for the final blow

CHORUS
Come on, life is short, let's have another drink
No rest, no fear, no doubt, let's go and find some danger
Most games end in tears who cares what people think
Tonight she's gonna be a little fallen angel

Whenever I see her she pretends to be happy
Oh how I wish she knew what a bad actress she is
Don't think she knows my name and I'm not gonna tell her
So I just wear a smile and maybe blow her a kiss

The mornings are so draggy, too much pain and too much haste
All the mem'ries down the drain
'cos it's the same old story I am sure she's gonna try
Someone elses bed again.

Chorus...

Shellfish and Peach (Cooper)
Recorded 27.10.2007 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 27.10.2007 at Prague

Don't you ask me 'bout the freakbeat scene of Prague,
Don't know it well, but I can tell you
It's a drag.

Prague's a dirty rotten city, it's bound to fall,
I must admit, it's a great place for lovers
After all.

Shellfish and Peach...

You can see some funny creatures in the streets,
Thousands of names, thousands of faces
No one needs.

Most of them can do no harm, no need to fear,
Beware of two, I hope my warning
Is quite clear.

CHORUS
Shellfish and Peach are within reach,
Head over heels you better run for your life,
They're crazy dancers, they feed on hamsters,
So keep your distance if you want to survive.

Everybody knows their paper is bright green,
They use green ink and that's the reason
For their spleen.

CHORUS
Shellfish and Peach are within reach,
Head over heels you better run for your life,
They're crazy dancers, they feed on hamsters,
So keep your distance if you want to survive.

 

Little Mystery (Luke/Cooper)
Recorded 26.10.2007 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 27.10.2007 at Prague

Lyrics:

It's a cold frosty morning and I'm sitting on a train,
And it's taking me back in time,
Hope I still got the ticket that I bought so long ago,
Wanna leave my blues behind.
Let me please dream away for a moment,
Let me be a cheeky boy again.
Wish I could meet the lonely girl who lived on the sixth floor,
Maybe she's still the same as she used to be.

It's a black cloudy evening and I'm walking in the rain,
Like I did so many times before,
I can still find the places I discovered as a kid,
But I can come back no more.
Late last night I could hear someone calling,
But I just didn't understand,
Was it her sending me a message half across the world,
I don't know it's a pretty little mystery.

 

Caravan (Cooper)
Recorded 26.10.2007 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 27.10.2007 at Prague

Last night the black sky caught me riding the motorway.
Strange thoughts running through my head.
Last night made me realize I don't want what I'm longing for,
I've lost something that I've never had.

White lies and fake smiles followed by some broken promises.
Guess I've been through this before.
When those red haired angels start fallin' to the muddy ground
I'm not going to catch them at all.

CHORUS
The time has come, the countdown has begun.
For those who have to walk alone.
Off you go, we'll never meet again,
'cos you'll never find your way back home.

The wind is blowin' someone's shattered dreams across the sand.
Dogs bark, the caravan rolls on.
And though I feel like crying this story makes me wanna laugh,
Let's run, another battle is won.

CHORUS
The time has come, the countdown has begun.
For those who have to walk alone.
Off you go, we'll never meet again,
'cos you'll never find your way back home.

 

The Test (Cooper)
Recorded 15.2.2008 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 04.3.2008 at Prague

Come on everybody listen now,
'Cos I’ve got something to say
Bet you’re gonna have a lot of fun
And it won’t take all day

Let me tell you 'bout a funny game
A kind that’s not on TV
If you don’t believe then it's a shame
‘Cos this all happened to me.

Lots of people tried to hurt my pride
But I could beat the best
Devil must have been right at my side
I passed the test

I passed the test, it sounds like a fairy-tale
I passed the test but I actually wanted to fail

I spent a night in a haunted house
And found some tranquillity
I solved a riddle of two clumsy clowns
and one saved virginity

And then the question that was never asked
Come on, you know I don’t lie
I like stories from the distant past
Ant the cherry on top of the pie

Lots of people make me wanna shout
And get it off my chest
Don’t you ask me what it’s all about
I passed the test

I passed the test, it sounds like a fairy-tale
I passed the test but I actually wanted to fail

Suddenly I was back at my place
No time for another near miss
It felt so good that I had won the race
I didn’t ask for a good night kiss.

 

White roses (Cooper/Luke)
Recorded 16.2.2008 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 2.3.2008 at Prague

Locked inside the cold jail
of your own screwed mind
you’ve been on a wrong trail
broken, deaf and blind

You’re just a prisoner right here
Desperately shivering with fear 

Now it’s time for reading
between white cocaine lines
hear those voices screaming
mad nursery rhymes

Where is the sunshine from your eye?
Maybe you want to say good bye. 

CHORUS
Another white rose must fade away
there’s nothing left to say
Another lost soul is bound for hell
Ring the passing bell…

CHORUS
Someone hears you calling
can you see the light?
though the night is falling
there’s time to win the fight.

Maybe you can escape your fate
Wake up before it gets too late.

Ref
Don’t let the white rose just fade away
but face another day
Now let the white rose bloom once again
and feel the morning rain

 

Little red rubber doll (Cooper)
Recorded 15.2.2008 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 2.3.2008 at Prague

The sky looked so friendly on that late summer day
There was something in the air all around
I went out walking to the forest deep and green
To search for a treasure hidden underground

The path that I followed led me to a mighty tree
With a secret ancient sign carved in the bark
Deep down in a hollow in an old wooden box
Was a doll all alone sleeping in the dark.

Hey my little red rubber doll,
lost but accidentally found again.
Tease me with your whimsical smile
In the sunshine and rain

Who could have left you in the cold spooky place
Let me try to find a clue deep in your eyes
I’m sure you won't tell me ‘cause you’re just a toy
And if you did it sure would be a big surprise.

 

Baby don´t you cry (Henry & The Philosophers cover)
Recorded 16.2.2008 at Svitkov studios, Pardubice
Mixed 02.03.2008 at Prague

Baby don't you cry
And just let me try
I'm the right kind of guy
Don't go alone
Let me walk you home.

He has gone away
You know he wouldn't stay
Please stop wonderin' why
Give me your hand
I hope you understand.

I'm waiting for my chance
If you wanna dance now
Baby you're so sweet
Get up on your feet
Say that you're gonna be mine.

Now we're dancin' slow
Baby don't you know
I will always be true
Unchain your heart
Darling that's the start.

I'll remember this starry night
And the moon above
Darling let us just fly away
Give me all your love
Now we're dancin' slow
Baby don't you know
I will always be true
Unchain your heart
Darling that's the start.

 

Crazy

 
I’m a ghost in my own magic castle
I’m a lonely child who’s never gonna cry
Guess that lovin’ you is too much hassle
‘cos you’re boring and you don’t know how to fly

 
I’m another reckless rainbow rider
I’m a wizard and I’m gonna cast a spell
I was tryin’ to be a freedom fighter
I’m a rebel and I’m gonna crack your shell

 
I don’t know why you can’t see
That I'm so fucking free
Troubles don’t mean much to me
What else do you need?

 
Crazy
Don’t have many wishes
Crazy
Just foolish dreams

Crazy
Drawing funny pictures
Crazy
Don’t know what it means

 I want to bring the Beatles back together
I wanna ride a pony ‘long the milky way
I want a love that’s gonna last forever
just before tomorrow kills today

I would like to have my private ocean
I would like to have my island in the sun
But I’m just a fool with no emotion
And that’s why I’m always on the run

Ref....

Down The Tracks (a.k.a. The Man Of Many Names)

Well here I stand, don’t know exactly where to start,
Thank God I am used to playing the hardest part
Guess I’ve been here for too long,
Gotta go, I just can’t stay,
Let the night mourn the dead,
When love slowly turns into hate.

 
You sure did well, you even knew when to shed a tear,
I wonder how you could let me cross that frontier,
Who cares, you just bought and sold,
Let’s see who will fancy the thrill,
I wish I knew how you felt,
When you finally went for the kill. 

CHORUS:
And I am walking slowly down the tracks,
Think I’ve found out who you really are,
Yesterday was yesterday
Yes, of course we went too far

But now I’m walking slowly down the tracks
Watching trains as they quickly pass me by
Maybe it’s hard to believe
But I’m somehow feeling fine.

 
BRIDGE:

Write another poem, stuff it with your own childish rhymes,
Find something to fill your empty hall,
Don’t forget to look around you,
Get off that window sill
Can’t you read the writing on the wall?

 
Someone once said, I was a man of many names,
But most of them will soon disappear with no trace,
I’ll live with the mistakes I make
It’s time for a breakaway
I hope you’ll stay out of touch

You should 'cos it’s just for your sake

Ref...

1994

It’s almost morning and the darkness is about
to finally close the door.
I’m sitting here trying to remember one day
in 1994
Strayed in a strange town
Learning how to live and play
Fingering my first chords
Wishing I could fly away

 

And then I met her, she was the only one
who relayed secret waves.
When she was around, so cool and tender
strange magic filled the time and space
Maybe she felt lonely
When she asked me to play a tune
The world just kept on turning’
That moment ended much too soon

 
Then water turned to ice, I didn’t realize
That something could go wrong
‘Cos I left with my friends
She didn’t have a chance to listen to my song

 
The time was passing, I left the big old town
and then I joined a band
She disappeared, no one could find her
That fairy-tale just had no end
I wrote a song about her
Who knows if it is good enough
The vision keeps returning
I’m so glad we didn’t fall in love.

 
Then water turned to ice, I didn’t realize
That something could go wrong
‘Cos I left with my friends
She didn’t have a chance to listen to my song
