lyrics

PAFF YOU

SHE WAS SITTING NEXT TO ME
BROKEN INTO A SINGLE PIECE, I SEE
HER STILL GREY HAIR, GREY FACE, GREY SMILE
GREY PAST- GREY FUTURE IN HER EYES

SHE ONCE MIGHT HAVE BEEN HAPPY
SHE MIGHT HAVE BEEN FAIR
AND NOW- BLOWING SMOKE RINGS INTO THE AIR
SHE TOOK A SIP OF BEER N TOASTED THE DEAD
AND TURNED TO HER GHOST FRIENDS- AS SHE SAID:

LA VIE C’EST COMME UNE CIGARETTE
ÇA BRûLE- ÇA MONTE A LA TÊTE
QUAND ON NE PEUT PLUS S’EN PASSER
TOUT ÇA S’ENVOLE EN FUMER

LA VIE C’EST COMME UNE CIGARETTE
ÇA FLAMBE COMME UNE ALLUMETTE
ÇA PIQUE LES YEUX- ÇA FAIT PLEURER
ET ÇA S’ENVOLE EN FUMER

DEMONS AND GHOSTS
THEY COME
WHEN A POOR SOUL IS ON THE RUN
THEY WILL CATCH YOU WHEREVER YOU ARE

THEY KNOW ALL YOUR WORRIES
THEY KNOW ALL YOUR FEARS
THERE’S ONLY ONE THING THAT MAKES THEM DISAPPEAR
AND THAT’S A STEADFAST LOOK INTO THEIR EYES

SO NO MORE NEED TO RUN
AND NO USE TO HIDE
JUST TAKE A HEART AND SWITCH THE SIDE
IF YOU CATCH THEM- THEY’LL GO ALL UP IN SMOKE

TANKRIS are four musicians from Vienna, all prolific in their own ways between improvised music, jazz, free form/noise- rock, rather not sticking with too clear defined or hollow genres in their work. The 11 songs from „Tankris“ follow Chris´ vision of a „different“ pop-band, in the process creating an exciting and unique mix of musical ideas and grooves. Best enjoyed with open ears! ... more
