Finally a full release for this record!

about

Guy James Girona, Spain

From my secret hideout north of Barcelona I create sonic and visual content to charm your senses. Stratospheric Analogue Juice: a direct injection of energy into your heart.

A big YES to the good dreams, the juiciness, the lovers, the infinity, the luxury, the magick, the why-not squad, the opportunists, the genii, the includers, the friends, the laughing, the impossible, the Oneness.

Track Name: Satellite
there's been a million knockdowns
might be a million more
see them queuing for attention
waiting to score
and I'm keeping watch
like a satellite
buzzing 'round your heart babe
in the lonely night

conversation, moving slowly
I gotta get out before I get too lonely
christ... I gotta get out of here

something comes between us
don't know what it is
might be death or taxes or trouble
hidden in every kiss
there's been a million knockdowns
might be a million more
see the satellite up there
spying on the war

conversation, moving slowly
I gotta get out before I get too holy
christ... I gotta get out of here

there's been a million knockdowns
might drive me insane
every time I get knocked down
I just get up again
Just get up again
Track Name: No Prisoners
I don't need no prisoners
I don't need anybody along
I can't feed your expectations
I gotta walk this road alone

And you can cry me a river
But I don't care

I gotta be like the blue sky
I am more than I'll ever know
I gotta burn it down all around me
I am transparent as the snow

And you can cry me a river
But I don't care

I got one eye to look straight at you
I don't need any more
And my knife is my vision
I can cut you down to the floor

And you can cry me a river
And you can cry me a flood
And you can cry me all the tears in your body
You can cry me all the blood
Track Name: Crashing On The Rocks In Your Head
Hey babe, having a marvellous time on my own again
You can put my face on the fire with all the others
I'm blown by the wind into dreams upon dreams
upon dreams upon dreams again
And each cloud is gone
Just to reveal another one

I'm stone now she's gone
And I feel so alone
And I cry

Crashing on the rocks in your head

Sometimes I feel like a rock in a valley
Rolling downhill for all eternity
Until I find my way back to the ocean
Where the tides of the world turn me into sand

I'm stone now she's gone
And I feel so low
And I cry

Crashing on the rocks in your head
Track Name: Glorious Way To Die
in my darkest hour
never thought it'd come to this
and all the prophecies of doom
the spell is broken with a kiss

now you're going now the songs are flowing
I still ask myself why
I tried to hold and not let it slip
now there's something in my eye

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die

and so many reasons for forgetting
I just can't believe she's gone
our ivory tower came crashing down
and I did do nothing wrong

where was the faith you once had
when you kissed a frog and made a prince
I know I'm over-romantic
does my sentiment make you wince?

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die

you held my soul to ransom
and what a price to pay
I was tested, found wanting
and my self got in the way
what you love will kill you
that is true for me as well
I've been all around just lately
up in heaven, down in hell

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die
Track Name: Living Surgery
hello my lonely love
tell me what is real
I wanna write you a letter
tell you how I feel

look behind the words I write
like a knife behind a screen
see the living surgery
of the hopes behind my dreams

and all the ways of living
passing through my eyes
never let me go
ahhh ahhh...

you're living so far away
and I wish I was with you
scraping ice off the windscreen
trying to keep shining through

now the snow is falling
on the tiny northern town
and the winter light is fading
catch you as you're falling down

and all the ways of living
passing through my eyes
never let me go
ahhh ahhh...
Track Name: Lay My Burden Down
when I lay my burden down
bells will be ringing
people won't know what's hit 'em
I'm gonna be singing
when I cast off all the cheap trash
from the time I lived a lie
I'm gonna re-write the bible
I'm gonna tell the reason why

gonna lay my, gonna lay my, gonna lay my burden down

when you've banged your head
so many times before
you say 'I'm just gonna give up,
I'll never win this war'
but I step outside the prison
I know it can be done
and we will watch the fireworks
when the loser's heart has won

gonna lay my, gonna lay my, gonna lay my burden down
Track Name: Residue
baby we're just residue
nothing else for us to do
I saw you on the midnight train
you didn't care about the rain
you were just flying home
flying home
Track Name: I Can Carry On
you know I love you
I can't believe you're gone
I gotta wake up in the morning
tell myself I can carry on

I'm the last of the lovers
I'm a snake in the grass
can you tell me why
all things have to pass

all things have to pass
