about

Think of psychedelic, post-punk, middle-eastern tunes electronically built up and then intertwined with guitar, sax, percussion, keyboards and flutes. That's Psychosamba. Try it.

Track Name: Psychosamba
psychotic waves
clouding my eyes
there's nothing left to see
so what do i do

i wanna find
a new kind of sound
repetition i can't stand
so what do i do

the world is so strange
the world is so hot
the world is a picture
of everything that's not
Track Name: My Soul Was Being Dragged Away
couldn't help my poisoned brain
hot lava from hell, hot lava from hell
freaking my well
worms breathing snow and pain

she's the boat and i'm the baby
floating throughout, floating throughout
shrieking me out
lacks of conscience on a tray

my soul was being dragged away
my soul was being dragged away
my soul was being dragged away

i had those moments of slither
raving my mind, raving my mind
stretching me over
fluxes of all colors and kinds

she's the nightly woman of blue
telling me things, telling me things
whispering thoughts
memories i've lived through

my soul was being dragged away
my soul was being dragged away
my soul was being dragged away
Track Name: Mensagem
o vento me avisou
do que a noite cantou
e o pranto das montanhas
não nevou na cidade das aranhas
e dos escorpiões
eu pensei que as razões
fossem mais do que símbolos
mas o eco dos pássaros
voava na trilha
longa e sinuosa
o chão rolante de alumínio
ao lado um canal de gelos e peixes
eu te peço nunca me deixe
enquanto sinto nossas mãos desgrudando
e nossas mentes colando
a noite havia dito
que o lençol passou batido
negro e bordado de estrelas dormentes
prontas a riscar o céu de sementes
e de frutos
Track Name: Dar as-Salam
pisando folhas caídas e framboesas
ao passo em que aquela serpenteia
minha dupla estrada me traz princesas
e entre todas uma verde sereia

Dar as-Salam, Dar as-Salam

partindo da casa do velho das horas
cada dia como um instantêaneo de memória
ele não compreende porque tu choras
porque ele faz parte de outra história

Dar as-Salam, Dar as-Salam

eu estou dançando porque eu estou cansado
o gozo é perene no espírito que fica mas
a pressão permanente na carne do bardo
reflete o que ele replica e treplica

Dar as-Salam, Dar as-Salam
Track Name: Mindkiss
into a billion flashes
that hurting scene
over these burning ahses
it seems like a mindkiss, mindkiss
please kiss me in my mind, a mindkiss

she's deeper than a candle
trembling in the wind
all voices whispering ramble
she needs a mindkiss, mindkiss
she needs to be kissed i her mind
just a mindkiss

never before as cynical
as he still remains
never more that typical
he's always waiting for a mindkiss, mindkiss
he's screaming for some kiss in the mind
just a mindkiss

transforming the brain
making the road
he is a velocity train
god told he must live for a mindkiss, mindkiss
his food is a kiss in the mind
just a mindkiss
Track Name: Child
nevermind the girls
you have loved before me
nevermind the boys
you have kissed before me
you're a child
i think that's what you are
you're a child
which side are you on now?

nevermind the critics
who demand you what to do
nevermind the bollocks
'cause they never do what they really want to do
you're a child
so come into my arms
you're a child
so just sleep under the sotrms

don't you be afraid of the sea
don't you be so scared
to open yourself to me

nevermind the days
that ou no longer recall
nevermind the times
when you couldn't do but fall
you're a child
'cause you're so tender and sweet
you're a child
maybe that's why i want you to eat (it)

nevermind the words
that had cut your mind like glass
nevermind the swords
that ry to fake the blast
you're a child
so take off your pants and dress
you're a child
there's no more loneliness
Track Name: Tempo
eu vejo no sopro do vento
este rosto ancestral
apesar da ampulheta do tempo
envolvendo-me em esquecimento

a turva tarde torce o sol
este hemisfério surreal
minhas mãos, completo girassol
tua pele-pano, seda isca anzol

qual era o tempo do esquecimento
oh deus
que águas banham este alumbramento
oh céus
qual era o tormento deste vento
oh zeus
qual era o tempo do esquecimento

a memória fugaz se desfaz
este tecido branco
mares revoltos, rocha que jaz
qual sussurro a brisa traz?
Track Name: Under the Snowstorm
under the snowstorm
tress are stuttering
icy winds threatening
i can see your face
floating in space
under the snow
under the snowstorm

under the snowstorm
thoughts are moving
tears are hiding
i can feel my skin
linked to your grin
under the snow
under the snowstorm

is there life after hard working?
is there any rock concealed in the basement?
is there warmth after freezing
or should i live between chilling to the bone
and melting like butter?

under the snowstorm
streets are screaming
people keep dreaming
i can breath your kiss
memories of bliss
under the snow
under the snowstorm
Track Name: Pensamentos Subversivos
a lua me guia
através de um sinal
vindo e indo a luz do dia
e me enlouquece a ordem normal
mordo os lábios
pensamentos subversivos são sábios

as moedas douradas
sacodem em meu bolso
e as batidas programadas
são a base do que ouço
mordo os lábios
pensamentos subversivos são sábios

um amor que foge
nada é para o louco dançante
a caverna de hoje
mesmo ontem eterno horizonte
mordo os lábios
pensamentos subversivos são sábios

visto magenta
feitiço é matar o carneiro de ouro
a incerteza atenta
mas entre o zumbido prefiro o estouro
mordo os lábios
pensamentos subversivos são sábios
Track Name: Abrasax is Singing
there isn't any compromise
between me and you
that's nice
that's why i put my trust on you
i must

i don't even know your nationality
or if you understand my ambiguity
i don't even know if you're a girl or a boy
or exactly the reason why you're so coy

there is no communication
between you and me
that's a situation
that turns me into misunderstanding
so that's how i'm still standing

i don't even know if you like yoko ono
or if you remember the difference between stereo and mono
i don't even know if you're from east or west
or if you're the same one
i knew before from the past

Abrasax is singing something (let's listen)
