(By Dani Ghassan Arbid) what I mean to say is I tried writing a song about love * I was sprinting, you know back and forth your face in my hands spit in my bowels into your arms into your shower * I wrote this song for the muses not for the ghosts I believe in ghosts * fuck, I’m in love * I share my dances and I share my spirits Do you want to know what I see when I close my eyes? * we rummage through the waste for a first and last meal, escorted on a chariot of amber ash * carry me with you carry me with you when the sweat swims from your nose to your lips and you taste the salts of a stranger’s kiss I want to be there for you

The Mind 02:51
(By Dani Ghassan Arbid) I rise into your temper entering through the mouth I rise into your temper entering through the mouth * I rise into your center entering through the mouth I rise into your center entering through the mouth * I changed everything I changed nothing. I can be anywhere, yet I am here. * I come into your body entering through the mouth. * I rise into your temper entering through the mouth. * I rise into your perspective. Into the stars of our last night. Into the arms of our last night.

(By Dani Ghassan Arbid) To you I lie only gently, and I would never tell a lie (but only gently) I sit for hours staring at nothing, I'm thinking of absolutely nothing * She looked old She seemed tired Nobody came, nobody wants to I walk past you you don't notice love. * When I close my eyes I find you I want to scour the earth in pursuit of you. The gypsy kisses me violently. She bites my chin holds her grasp in my hair, begging for control. She tightens, she loosens, her moan intensifies, her stuttering cries, I anticipate the crescendo, she orgasms, I listen, she builds, I... * She looked old She seemed tired Nobody came, nobody wants to I walk past you you don't notice love.

(By Khodor Ellaik) Forever is a long long time the pleasure lasts a 2 second run we're going for a long drive tonight it's an alleyway Tried to remain at your disposal I'm going my way into rehearsal trying, trying, trying

Arab Prince 03:36
(by Khodor Ellaik) Who's dying now? Are we both taken? I'm not your Arab prince my heart is not for you gonna grab my fist I'll put you on a list Oh you're gorgeous What's the passion Gonna run for me? Where's the delusion? What works for you? I'm not your Arab prince my heart is not for you gonna grab my fist I'll put you on a list

(By Dani Ghassan Arbid) I know where darkness shines. Where light sets free her will. Here we are into the inside and without the other a touch of the sick a touch of love a touch of magic nothing. The drums the absence the crowd the flame. I found my voice I can open doors by thinking I changed everything I changed nothing. I’ve seen the way fear takes a man when he’s healthy, seen the way health takes a man when he’s feared I am the empty quarter. I am setting you free.

(By Dani Ghassan Arbid) Stamina, prolongs my fate I stumble to your memory suffering alone. Cruising the respite of streets oscillating waking dreams I am a mule strung along the invisible of my conscious self. I think of you biding time expecting the weather to turn and with it my language. I try everything nothing works.

Plastic lasts longer than love

about

This album started out roughly based on the 12 phases of love thoroughly represented in Arabic literature. During the creation process, it slowly shifted into exploring the complexity of human intimacy and how visceral feelings and vulnerability would sound like if all other senses of expression were lost.
At a later stage all of the texts and lyrics (with the exception of Arab Prince, One day I'm gone, and Plastic lasts) were based on the writings of my fellow friend and writer Dani Ghassan Arbid, currently residing in Berlin. It took form as a fruitful collaboration and a necessary expansion on the topic.
