There's gonna be a tsunami It's written on the walls of this city And if you're looking for the answer I tell you we can deliver Secret societies, it's true Forgotten knowledge, it's true Ancient technologies, it's true Everything is a lie Don't need a good reason for burning your books It's not a matter of opinions You just can't afford to ask any questions Gotta get myself away from here It's just a matter of time before they find me It's just a matter of time before they get to me It's just a matter of time before they kill me Well how do you think they did it ? Landing a guy on the moon They say seeing is believing Well how do you know it's the truth ? Illuminati, it's true Sacred geometry, it's true Whatever happened to Atlantis, it's true Everything is a lie We're building a new arcology It's not a tale of superstition We're just trying to make sense of the confusion Gotta get myself away from here

In the light of constellation That I've never faced There's a time and there's a place That leaves a trace along the mainline And you can draw all your conclusions By the way I treat you In the dark-ness of the room where I have found you I keep on pulling you in / You know well I don't want to I don't know where to begin / Why can't I keep my clothes on ? When you're here and you've got me Exactly where you want so please On the first night that I met you at the brothel And the lights were low You hypnotised me, tantalised me with the motion Of the slowest Apsara dance But here's the thing that is rubbing me the wrong way And you need to know To understand that I can't stand the other men Who get to see you when I'm not there Tried to convince you to stay / But you never listen You'll be the goddess I pray / You never get things done Anyway, there ain't no promise that I can make He pretends there's a way to justify it I'll tie you to the bed until the morning She expects him to be another darling And you can hide it all with makeup I can feel your dedication When the whip comes down And you moan, and you howl And you don't fail to fulfil your obligations You keep on building me up / Because you let me down You kept it hidden in your smile / I couldn't make a sound I had no reason to live / Don't say I gave you one That is the way I wanna feel / Well you can't get it from me Every time that you feel you're going to die

I was sailing away in the wind I was minding my own business Then you came along and you proved to be Stronger than expected How I wish I had the forecast I could have waited Now I've drowned at the bottom of your eyes I look to the sky, the sky is so far I look to the sun, the sun is so far I'm slowly sinking down Don't miss me baby Your love, like water, quickly Gets inside of me Now I've drowned at the bottom of your eyes
4.
I better look outside my window Someone's calling my name Take a moment in the sunrise Before they take me away Leave it behind, when no one else is around Come out at night, don't wanna lose what I just found Well I got so tired of the city I'm a wanted man there I've settled in a temple I am pretending to pray Tell me the truth, what no one else knows about You're supposed to know, you must blind me with your light I made friends with a monkey It follows me everywhere But when the priest came to help me It ran right out my way I got lectured by the old man About man and god and law He tied a bracelet to my ankle I've been wearing it since then It's my lucky charm, but I never got it to work I'm stuck with it now, but I'm never gonna look back I've said my lines, now I'm letting you reply You can write it in a letter, before we say goodnight

about

Flo Brown's second release with Rendez Vous Records is a 4-track long fantasy journey to Cambodia. Inspired by both the music and the history of Cambodia, Flo Brown here also brings out the best in sixties revivalism. Featuring a large cast of instruments, a fully self-produced recording and lyrics that speak of a fractured semi-fictional adventure.
