"Trippy" lyrics

Since I couldn't get a "real" album of the Trip here in Montreal, I purchased it on itunes...was wondering, for those of you who got a hard version, is there a sleeve with lyrics?...if not, I shall as usual contribute my efforts to provide lyrics for those of you who care.

Fluid Sand

Fluid Sand

Like a hamster on a wheel
running 'round, and 'round, and 'round
towards a big crowd,
I was not living my true...
my own death was a type of suicide.
It is tragic because I lost you
when really (I love you)
this one has to find the truth
in the living world.
We began with rolled rock.
first there was one,
then two, then three
as time went on.
(Fluid sand)
So did our desires evolve,
providing a change,
mass was further broken down,
it became shifting sand,
eroding to powder.
(Stack of dust)
The matter I needed to
sculpt a new...

Natural Child

Natural Child

The double "you",
a double "me",
a mirror where one could see
the ancestry.
You dare to look
the double "we",
the side of you open and free,
waiting for love,
tuned to beauty,
spirit of giving, naturally
exchanging all simplicity.
The natural child
with strong legs and shoulders,
was made to carry
a load way too heavy.
Still you were able to raise,
resonate with some loftier way,
so high perhaps, and without fear,
which made you embrace the mystery
that tormented you.
Now that you are
traveling and finding
a new way,
and although I miss you,
now that you are one,
and that I am still two,
I can connect at last
to your presence revealed.
The peace and the knowledge
that you are well,
that all is well.

Statues Can Bend

Statues Can Bend

Statues can bend,
sheltered against openness,
but so hard is their heart
that if it drops, it breaks.
The wind may blow,
caress their limbs,
a softening,
the breath of reminiscence
on a life of reluctance,
pacing in all the body,
burning with sensuality,
the flame is embrace.
The wind (is blowing through)
stripping (the many-colored lights)
dissipate into oblivion,
mirrored infinite.
Unadulterated light,
rejoining the starry night,
who knows but doesn't speak.

Un Soir, Un Chien

Un Soir, Un Chien

Si tu viens me retrouver,
n'oublie pas mes petits souliers.
(Si tu viens me retrouver
n'oublie pas mes petits souliers)
N'oublie pas mes petits souliers.
N'oublie pas de les lacer serrés,
(n'oublie pas de les lacer serrés)
serrés.
Avec tes chevilles entravées,
(avec tes chevilles entravées)
ah! qu'est-ce que tu me plais!
(ah! qu'est-ce que tu me plais!
À tes pieds je serai)
À tes pieds je serai,
(à tes pieds je m'allongerai)
à tes pieds je m'allongerai,
le froid du carrelage contre mon corps.
(le froid du carrelage contre mon corps,
écrassée d'amour, je t'adore)
Écrasée d'amour, je t'adore.
Je t'adore (je t'adore).
Ouistiti, ouistiti, ouistiti,
ouistiti, ouistiti, ouistiti,
ouistiti, ouistiti, ouistiti.
À tes pieds je serai
frissonnate et glacée.
(À tes pieds je serai
frissonnante et glacée)
attirée par la terre,
(attirée par la terre)
rivée par la pesanteur,
(rivée par la pesanteur)
là, je ne pourrai pas
tomber plus bas.
(Là, je ne pourrai pas
tomber plus bas)
Qu'est-ce que tu vas faire de moi?
C'est toi qui décideras.
Si tu me laisseras là, ou quoi.
Oh, c'est toi qui choisiras.
Comment tu m'aimeras.
Ce que tu feras avec moi.
C'est toi qui l'a décidé,
en effet, ces histoires là
t'ont ennuyé.
C'est pas comme ça
que tu voulais m'aimer.
Toi tu voulais de gentils baisers
pleins de tendresse,
(tu voulais le plein de tendresse)
tu voulais le plein de tendresse.
Tu préfères tricoter des étoles de soie
contre la solitude.
(tu préfères tricoter des étoles de soie
contre la solitude).
Quand t'auras décidé,
tu m'as laissé,
je suis restée attachée.
Moi je resterai quand même
attachée, à t'aimer,
attachée, à t'aimer.

One Night, A Dog

If you come to meet me,
don't forget my tiny shoes.
(If you come to meet me,
don't forget my tiny shoes)
Don't forget my tiny shoes,
don't forget to lace them up tightly,
(don't forget to lace them up tightly)
tightly.
With your ankles shackled,
(with your ankles shackled)
ah! how you're attractive!
(ah! how you're attractive!
At your feet I will be)
At your feet i will be,
(at your feet i will lie down)
at your feet i will lie down,
the cold tiles against my body
(the cold tiles against my body,
crushed with love, I adore you)
crushed with love, I adore you.
I adore you (I adore you).
Ouistiti...(*)
At your feet i will be
shivering and frozen.
(At your feet I will be
shivering and frozen)
attracted by the earth
(attracted by the earth)
riveted by heaviness
(riveted by heaviness)
There, I won't won't be able to
fall any lower.
(There, I won't be able to
fall any lower)
What will you do with me?
You will decide.
If you will leave me there, or what.
Oh, you will choose.
How you will love me.
What you will do with me.
You decided,
indeed, these scenarios
bored you.
That's not the way
you wanted to love me.
You wanted nice kisses
full of tenderness,
(you wanted your fill of tenderness)
you wanted your fill of tenderness.
You prefer knitting silken stoles
against loneliness.
(you prefer knitting silken stoles
against loneliness).
When you'll decide,
you left me,
I remained tied up.
I will still remain
tied up, loving you,
tied up, loving you.


*A ouistiti is a marmoset, a type of monkey, but in French it can mean an oddball, a weirdo...I guess it just added to the weirdness of the song...if you know les Rita Mitsouko you understand.

Another Monster

Another Monster

There is something very dark,
the shadow of which can't be turned around.
To diffuse some light,
what is this thing at last?
Whose sound?
Who's been muted and repressed?
Attracted to the color red.
Some dim,
some intimately deep corner.
You're not much loved
under the light.
One war, was one too many war.
One war, the one that killed his soul.
He once looked...closer
to the void...
and although well and in flux,
he teaches no...
Chance crushes the deeper bones.
So what?
You are a monster, but I'm part woman.
Rid yourself of me.
Your case needs opening up,
look inside, feel what needs to be felt.
There are choices you can make,
the humble ones of the poet.
The player, he cannot sleep at night.
The player, whose soul was killed in war.

Ceci Est Le Coeur

Ceci Est Le Coeur

Ceci est le coeur (de Laetitia)
et dans mon coeur il y a
un grand désert rouge
fouetté par la tempête.
Désert crépu de sable vermeille,
reflétant divers strates de lumière,
la tempête par moments se calme
laissant apparaître un château
aux ramparts élevés,
là-haut sur la colline.
La porte en bois s'ouvre
et laisse apercevoir
(un disque bleu duquel un peu
tombait au fond de l'horizon)
au-dessus l'eau verte flambe de désir
(au fond, le...cassant mal acéré,
stagne depuis des millions d'années)
sans relâche un mouvement
qui s'ouvre et se ferme
(c'est une fantôme, qui vit, qui luit,
jaillit du fond de l'univers).
Nos pas foulent la Terre,
d'un grand champ d'air
qui s'élève là-haut.
Oui de l'arbre, la vue est belle,
nous a-t-on dit, d'instinct
nous le savons, nous avançons.

Ceci Est Le Coeur translation

This Is The Heart

This is the heart (of Laetitia)
and in my heart there is
a vast red desert,
whipped by a sandstorm.
Fuzzy desert of crimson sands,
reflecting various layers of light.
Sometimes the tempest abates,
revealing a castle,
with high ramparts,
on top of the hill.
The wooden door opens
and reveals
(a blue disk, from which a little
was falling behind the horizon)
above, the green water
is burning with desire
(at the bottom, a...broken, blunt,
has stagnated for millions of years)
unrelenting, a movement
opens and closes
(it's a "ghost?", that lives, that shines,
emerges from the depths of the universe).
Our steps tread the Earth,
on a field of air,
that rises high up.
Yes, atop the tree,
the view is beautiful,
we were told, instinctively,
we know it, we are advancing.

Re: fluid sand

1.)"Like a hamster on a wheel
running 'round, and 'round, and 'round

spinning the wheels, as it were, and not reaching the goal

2.)"I was not living my true...
my own death was a type of suicide.
It is tragic because I lost you
when really (I love you)
this one has to find the truth
in the living world."

failure to get to a rewarding relationship, did not say the right things, loss of patience


3.)"We began with rolled rock.

then two, then three
as time went on.

Relationship started out working through the larger general issues such as individual preferences, but evolved to the sharing of deeper, if not subliminal, feelings. This is what she wants to work with,the deepest of personal depths, but to shape the perfect realationship:
but it will always be like sand in the wind!
