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

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

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

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

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...

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

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

about

Finally a full release for this record!

This album has been at least ten years in the making.

I thought I had cracked it, but in the end it cracked me. The results are in this album.

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.
