United Colours (5:31) :

Instrumental

Slug (4:41) :

Don't want to lose my shirt

Don't want to dig the dirt

Don't want you to get hurt

Can't help it, I'm a flirt

Don't want to take your drugs

Don't want to be your slug

Don't want to overdress

Don't want to make a mess

Don't want you to confess

Not under duress

Don't want to be untrue

I want to be with you

Don't want to lose my nerve

Don't want to clothe the curve

Don't want to make you swerve

Don't want what I deserve

Don't want to change the frame

Don't want to be a pain

Don't want to stay the same

From "Slug" (Peter Von Heineken, Germany)

 

 

 


Your Blue Room (5:28) :

It's time to go again

To your blue room

Got some questions to ask of you

In your blue room

The air is clean

Your skin is clear

I've had enough fun hanging 'round here

It's a different kind of conversation

Your blue room

Saw me coming

In outside

Saw me coming

Somewhere I can hide

And time is a string of pearls...

your blue room

(I'm a swinger)

See the future just hanging there...

your blue room

A new frame, a new perspective

Looking down on my objectives

Your instructions whatever their directions

Your blue room

Saw me coming

East by the moon

Saw me coming

Can you feel

(It's allright)

Your blue room

One day I'll be back...your blue room

Yeah, I hope I remember where it's at...

your blue room

We see me slide

Won't you give me a home

So much for change

Zooming in

Zooming out

Nothing I can't do without

A lens to see it all up close

Magnifying what no one knows

Never in company

Never alone

No car alarm

No cellular phone

From "Par-Dela Les Nuages/Beyond The Clouds" (Michelangelo Antonioni/Wim Wenders)

 

 


Always Forever Now (6:24) :

Bono

Voices

Always

Always

Always, forever, now

Always

Always

Always, forever, now

Always forever

Always forever now

Always forever

Always forever now

Always forever now

Always forever now

Always forever now

Always forever

Always, forever, now

Always, always

Always, forever, now

Always, forever, now

Always, always

Always, forever, now

Always, forever, now

Always, always

End Titles From "Always Forever Now" (John Leg Qi, Hong Kong)

 

 


A Different Kind of Blue (2:02) :

Those cars

All new

So small

Down there

From here

So high

We drift

We fly

The twlight breaking through

A different kind of blue

More lights

Blue signs

More gold

More new

So small

So high

Down there

Tonight

With the twilight breaking through

It's a different kind of blue

The twilight breaking through

It's a different kind of blue

From "An Ordinary Day" (Lurlene Clewman, USA)

 

 


Beach Sequence (3:32) :

Time

Shoots on by

From "Par-Delà Les Nuages/Beyond The Clouds"(Michelangelo Antonioni/Wim Wenders, Italy)

 

 


Miss Sarajevo (5:40) :

Is there a time for keeping your distance

A time to turn your eyes away

Is there a time for keeping your head down

For getting on with your day

Is there a time for kohl and lipstick

A time for cutting hair

Is there a time for high street shopping

To find the right dress to wear

Here she comes

Heads turn around

Here she comes

To take her crown

Is there a time to run for cover

A time for kiss and tell

Is there a time for different colours

Different names you find it hard to spell

Is there a time for first communion

A time for East 17

Is there a time to turn to Mecca

Is there time to be a beauty queen

Here she comes

Beauty plays the clown

Here she comes

Surreal in her crown

Dici che il fiume

Trova la via al mare

E come il fiume

Giungerai a me

Oltre i confini

E le terre assetate

Dici che come fiume

Come fiume...

L'amore giunger

L'amore...

E non so più pregare

E nell'amore non so più sperare

E quell'amore non so più aspettare

Is there a time for tying ribbons

A time for Christmas trees

Is there a time for laying tables

And the night is set to freeze

From The Film "Miss Sarajevo" (Bill Carter US)

 

 


Ito Okashi (3:25) :

Japanese Original Lyrics

English Translation

Utsukushiki mononi tuite katarimasho

Chikyujono anatano sugu chikakuno

Omomukino arumononi tuite

Muneno kodoo takameru monono yoni

Kito narikaga ito okashi

Let's talk about something beautiful

On the face of this earth,

something very close to you

About something that is tasteful

Like something that makes the heartbeat faster

Certainly something is very interesting/pleasant

From "Ito Okashi/Something Beautiful"

(Rita Takashina, Performance At Wakari Hotel Theatre Centre, Fukushima)

 

 


One Minute Warning (4:40) :

A lonesome soul

In an old black boat

A lonesome frown

What a way to go

Chasing though

The strings to hold

In an old black coat

A lonesome soul

A lonesome soul

A lonesome soul

From "Ghost In The Shell" (Mamoru Oshii, Japan)

 

 


Corpse (These Chains Are Way Too Long) (3:35) :

Hey, see you soon

Sail through your room

I'll meet you there

Hey, be my friend

Stay 'til the end

Don't walk away

Hey, hey, hey, hey...

Hey, take 'em off

Don't talk that way

Don't feel my lover say

Hey, hey, hey...

Chains move that thing

Chains we can see

My chains way too long

Chains in this

Chains move that thing

Chains we could see

Chains are way too long

And I hear my song

Hear my song

From Gibigiane/Reflections" (Aldo Gianniccolo, Milan)

 

 


Elvis Ate America (2:59) :

Elvis...white trash

Elvis...the Memphis flash

Elvis...didn't smoke hash

Would've been a sissy without Johnny Cash

Elvis...didn't dodge the draft

Elvis...had his own aircraft

Elvis...having a laugh

On the Lisa Marie in a colour photograph

Elvis...under the hood

Elvis...with Cadillac blood

Elvis...darling bud

Flowered and returned to the Mississippi mud

Elvis...ain't gonna rot

Elvis...in a Memphis plot

Elvis...he didn't hear the shot

And Dr. King died just across the lot from...

Elvis...vanilla ice cream

Elvis...girls of fourteen

Elvis...the Memphis spleen

Shooting TVs reading Corinthian's 13

Elvis...with God on his knees

Elvis...owned three TVs

Here come the killer bees Head full of honey potato chips and cheese

Elvis...the bumper stickers

Elvis...the white knickers

Elvis...the white nigger

Ate at king burger and just kept getting bigger

Elvis...sang to win

Elvis...the battle hymn

Elvis...the battle to be slim

Elvis ate America before America ate him

Elvis...

Elvis...stamps

Elvis...necromance

Elvis...fans

Elvis...psychophants

Elvis...the public enemy

Elvis...don't mean shit to Chuck D.

Elvis...changed the center of gravity

Made it slippy

Elvis...Hitler

Elvis...Nixon

Elvis...Christ

Elvis...Mishima

Elvis...Markus

Elvis...Jackson

Elvis...the pelvis

Elvis...the psalmist

Elvis...the genius

Elvis...generous

Elvis...forgive us

Elvis...pray for us

Elvis...Aaron

Elvis...Presley

Elvis.
