YALLINGUP (2019)

Recorded, mixed and masterd by Lukas Speissegger www.speissegger.ch



1. Sharks Don't Eat Zebras 
--------------------------
I pretend to be poisonous 
so you don't fancy me
and take a chunk out of me.
So no offense against your intellect.
I think you're perfect,
no need to be upset.
But what if you know it?
Can you smell it
that I'm afraid of you?
Would you kill me?
My last adventure would be with you.


It's funny how I feel untouchable,
apparent powers though
will fade away.
Uncovered feels more naked to the soul
than when I'm wearing no clothes.
So how will you do it?
Just do it quick,
cause i'm still afraid of you.
I don't know you.
My next adventure will be with you.


Now you dive somewhere under me.
With your open jaws
you're shooting up towards me.
Unaware of your dinner plans, 
I start to paddle hard
to catch a wave.
I feel how you hit me.
I stop to breathe,
the world starts to fade away.
Then I wake up
under water, where are you?


2. My Brain Is On Vacation
--------------------------

La cosa con mi cerebro es una historia,
junto con mi corazón son una joya.
Este problema es que tengo,
a veces uno de los dos esta durmiendo.
Cuando duerme el corazón soy frio,
cuando duerme el cerebro estoy jodido. 
El corazón esta de fiesta y se enamora
en el instante cuando siente una mirada y canta:

My brain is on vacation, my brain is on holidays
sorry I'm not here today, my brain is far away.

Mi cerebro donde esta, no lo se a donde va, 
se que no me ayudara, cuando vea calidad. 
Que es esa curiosidad, Que es esa curiosidad.

Fíjese que mi cerebro esta durmiendo,
no se da cuenta de lo que esta sucediendo. 
El corazón se aprovecha de su ausencia,
se pone loco hasta que llegue la ambulancia y canta:

My brain is on vacation, my brain is on holidays
sorry I'm not here today, my brain is far away.

Mi cerebro donde esta, no lo se a donde va, 
se que no me ayudara, cuando vea calidad. 
Que es esa curiosidad, Que es esa curiosidad.

El corazón agotado al cerebro:
Mira vos tengo que salir de este lio.
El cerebro se ríe porque sabe,
contra el dolor de corazón no hay jarabe.  
Es el tiempo que cura las heridas,
las que olvidas cuando bailas en las fiestas y cantas:

My brain is on vacation, my brain is on holidays
sorry I'm not here today, my brain is far away.


3. Bread Instead
----------------

Imagine all the weapons
turned into bread
the soldiers on the battlefields
would have a feast instead.         

At first they try to shoot                
but all they hear are crumbs
instead the sound of guns                 
there is a smell of buns.                   

We all would live in peace
happy and obese
from eating too much bread
and maybe too much cheese.

What about some vegetables
But that requires tolerance
not gluten or lactose that kind
but rather about our state of mind.

Weapons turn to vegetables
ammunition into herbs
rockets, drones and aeroplanes
into ice cream and desserts. 

Fantasies are sweet to dream
with ice cream even more
like Alice in wonderland
down in the rabbit hole.

Sometimes I lose myself
in the rabbit hole
time becomes meaningless
no way to take control.


The flow of thoughts is steady
I try to make some sense
If I lose myself forever                               
trapped in a happy place.                 


4. Prison Of Thoughts
---------------------

No soy esclavo del dinero
ni de la sociedad,
es el camino por en medio
para estar libre de verdad.

El estorbo en el camino
la razón por no llegar
se encuentra en mi cabeza
mi manera de pensar.

So good to be free
free from myself.
Feels good to be free
free from my thoughts, and myself.

El dinero solo es un medio
la vida hay que gozar,
la sociedad es el nido
para vivir y jugar.

Muchos retos a cada rato
la paciencia me ayudara
a tomarlo mas tranquilo
la neblina se quitara.

So good to be free
free from myself.
Feels good to be free
free from my thoughts, and myself.

No slave to the money.
No slave to society.
The only thing in my way         
are my thoughts and myself.         

So good to be free
free from myself.
Feels good to be free
free from my thoughts, and myself.


5. Feel The Flow
----------------

Estoy en el aire
aquí no hay nadie
solo el viento
y los rayos del sol.

No siento mi peso                            
que fácil que es                                
el movimiento                                  
me lleva por donde voy,                   
volando voy.
Enjoy the show
feel the flow.                                     

A veces el viento
sopla mas fuerte
comienza a doblar
la superficie del mar.

Se vuelve tormenta
comienza a viajar
nos lleva las olas                             
la belleza comienza a bailar                      
a deslizar.                                              
Enjoy the show
feel the flow.

Enjoy the show
feel the flow
effortless motion                                         
is rolling on.
So go go go.                                                 
 
I'm high, above the ground
no one's around
the wind blows in the sun.
My weight is gone
I'm in tune
effortless motion is rolling on
like a song
it unfolds to the rythm 
of the flow.
Feel the flow, feel the flow.


6. Walking On Gold
------------------

Estamos caminando sobre oro 
y no nos damos cuenta que esto es un tesoro.
Seguimos caminando por la calle, 
a donde vamos, lo sabe nadie.

Lo ciego que fui, lo ciego que soy, 
no veo quien soy, corriendo me voy. 
Lo ciego que fui, lo ciego que soy, 
el ciego vera, el ciego lo sentirá.

El tiempo perdido, dejalo tranquilo, 
que nunca volverá.

And we're walking on gold that we don't see, 
walking on gold, that we don't see.

No sabemos lo bueno que tenemos 
hasta el día cuando lo perdemos.
Y cuando es demasiado tarde, 
lloramos el dolor que arde.

Lo ciego que fui, lo ciego que soy, 
el ciego vera, el ciego lo sentirá.

El tiempo perdido, dejalo tranquilo, 
que nunca volverá.

And we're walking on gold that we don't see, 
walking on gold, that we don't see.

No vemos que es lo que queremos, 
por el rumbo que da vuelta al mundo.                                                      
Si me enseñas como puedo verlo, 
para gozarlo antes de perderlo.

Walking on gold, that we don't see

El tiempo perdido, dejalo tranquilo, 
que nunca volverá.

Walking on gold, that we don't see


7. Slow Driver
-------------

I'm a slow driver, going slow
life's too fast it's moving on,
let me go, going on, slow.

Me gusta viajar despacito, 
no importa si dura un ratito,
es cuando siento mi vida resonar.

El mundo da vuelta deprisa, 
a veces le falta una sonrisa.
A donde corremos, nadie lo sabe de verdad.

Los sueños perdidos, 
los sueños vividos, 
los sueños nacidos, 
los sueños torcidos,
les gusta viajar despacito, son la música.

I'm a slow driver, going slow
life's too fast it's moving on,
let me go, going on, slow.

La vida a paso ligero, 
pierde momentos como un agujero.
Quiero viajar despacito, es calidad.

Con calma con calma, 
que estamos deprisa, 
los pasos pensados, 
si no, no llegamos,
la mente agitada no escucha la música.

I'm a slow driver, going slow
life's too fast it's moving on,
let me go, going on, slow.


8. Feet In The Sand
-------------------

I feel so easy 
feet in the sand
the smell of sea salt 
never ends
we never grow up 
we always play.
this the moment 
this is our way.

I feel the wind blow 
así sopla el viento
in my hair
por mi cabello
and the same words
y las palabras
in my ears
en mis oídos

Never grow up boy
nunca deja de ser niño
dance to your song
baila tu canción
the rhythm takes you to
el ritmo llevara
where you belong
a donde veras.

Listen to the rhythm, to the rhythm of your song
Your song, Your song, dance to the rhythm of your song.

I feel so easy
aquí se siente rico 
feet in the sand
los pies en la arena 
The smell of sea salt
siento el olor a sal 
never ends
por siempre estará 
We never grow up
no vamos a crecer 
we always play
siempre vamos a jugar
this the moment
no existe el mañana 
this is our way
así es el rumbo


9. La Buena Vida (feat. DC Green)
---------------------------------

La surfeada es una droga   
asesina, una paja egoísta 
que me deshizo 
pedazo por pedazo, décadas de dolor. 

Y devoro los mejores años de mi vida
si no fuera por la adrenalina, 
probablemente tuviera un par de trajes finos 
cuales ninguno me reglaría alegría. 

Como las olas compartidas con amigos, 
arco iris, tormentas, tiburones, tortugas, 
pinguinos, ballenas y miles de delfines.
Cuando estaré contando mis días 
en una casa de ancianos, 
ya se que sentiré una gran alegría 
por esta vida bien vivida. 

Estaré demasiado ocupado 
con mis recuerdos 
para tenerle miedo 
al esqueleto vestido de un hoody negro.
 


10. I Know I Can Walk All Night
-------------------------------

This is a happy song, 
a happy song for those 
who like sad songs,  
the happy within sad songs.

When things go wrong 
relax move on 
before you know 
you'll be lauging 
you ll'be laughing because you know.

I know in the dark, I cannot see
I walk then I stop, I try to hear
I know there will be a light
I know I can walk, walk all night.

Come, leave your bag behind, 
let's run,
to the unkown.
Don't be afraid it will be fun.

The night has come 
the rain is on
we're on our own 
and we'll be laughing,
we'll be lauging cause we know.

So, this is where it ends, 
I'm stuck
I can't go on.
The end, I can't go on.

I feel relief 
in giving up
it is the joy 
of a new beginning,
a new beginning and I know.





SUNZAL (2015)

A couple of songs for this album were written in Sunzal on
surftrips over the last 10 years. Others were written on the
road around the world in the 4 years after the 2nd album
Produced by Al-Berto & the Fried Bikinis
Recorded, mixed and masterd by Lukas Speissegger www.speissegger.ch



1. Surf Eat Sleep 
---------------
Surf eat sleep, surf eat sleep, simple minds in paradise

De paso ligero las veo llegar, el horizonte se mueve estoy en el mar
Montañas de agua, qué ganas me da, risa en el pecho el miedo se va,
Llévame ola hazme viajar, fuera del tiempo y del lugar
No siento mi peso, volando me voy,
No se quién soy yo, porque ya no hay hoy 

Surf eat sleep, surf eat sleep, simple minds in paradise

El agua me pasa por la nariz, aunque me ahogue me siento feliz,
Este es mi mundo la vida de mar, gozo el instante se va acabar

Surf eat sleep, surf eat sleep, simple minds in paradise

A dondé vas mi vida, a donde vas, quédate hoy. 
And all the other yummy activities
 
Surf eat sleep, surf eat sleep, simple minds in paradise


2. In the Air 
-------------
Te veo sonreir y asentir
Entiendo tu razón
Nos dejaste acá, te fuiste para allá
En una estrella fugaz

A veces quiero ver, que es lo que pensás
Es ahí cuando te ríes más
Porque yo no me di cuenta de tu plan
Hoy te viera volar.

In the Air in the Air in the Air in the Air in in in in in the Air

No vas a envejecer, quedás como te vas
Entiendo tu razón
La nieve y el color, del cielo quedarán
Las ganas de volar

In the Air in the Air in the Air in the Air in in in in in the Air

Bienvenidos a la vida, somos turistas, 
venimos vemos y nos vamos

Para arriba, me gusta volar
Para abajo, no quiero parar
De lado, me gusta bailar
Mi vida, la quiero vivir

La quiero sentir
La quiero oír
Quiero cantar
Y volar

In the Air in the Air in the Air in the Air in in in in in the Air


3. Crazy People 
---------------
Out of all the crazy people it is you, who I love the most

A ti te gusta la montaña, tu mundo es escalar
A mi me gusta la surfeada, la vida en el mar

en el mar, en el mar

A veces voy de viaje, tu no puedes venir
a sitios retirados, solo locos quieren ir
Tal vez encuentre una ola y me quedo a vivir
pero la ola vale nada sin poderla compartir

Without you nothing is as funny, 
no one sees me the way you do,

Out of all the crazy people it is you, who I love the most

I think you are kind of crazy, like you think that I am crazy, too
That's why life feels like a movie, when I am cruising with you.

It's all about the crazy people, all the crazy people (and) you.


4. Panic Attack 
---------------
Why are you inside my head? How long are you going to stay inside my head? 
It's been so long now, It's been too long now.

Why are you around my head? Don't know how I got inside your head.
It's been so long now, It's been too long now

Remember when you took, over my mind? I felt like decaying from the inside?
It's been so long now, It's been too long now.

rembember when you lost a part your mind. I had to take control from the inside. 
It's been so long now, It's been to long now

So please go away go away go away. Go away go away go away, 
It's been to long now, can't stand you no more now.

Go away go away there is no place for you to stay, 
It's been too long now, there is no place for you now. 

I'd go away, would go away, let me go to go away, 
it's been so long now, my time with you is done now

Are you still inside my head? Or are you hiding somewhere instead? 
I hope you're gone now, I feel like you are gone now


5. It's you
-----------
How many flowers grow in your mind
The ones that help you leave your sorrows behind
Your colors make feel at home 
I'm not afraid to be alone

I'm ready to move on

I have some flowers growing in my mind  
Can't see the beauty `cause I'm going blind 
I need your eyes so I can see
What kind of colors are growing in me

So let me see,
It is you who gives me wings to fly
There is no one of your kind
It's you who makes me fly fly fly 

How many flowers are here to stay
Nobody sees them as they are fading away
That's how it goes and we don't complain
We are blooming, loving the rain
And that's the only thing that matters



6. Outlaws 
----------
We are the outlaws, we are the freaks, 
they don't let us talk to their kids
You want to join us, you want to feel, 
what life is like when you're not real
We're not alone, we're always home, 
we're everywhere and we care,
We don't bother, we are the others, 
we are always on the run,


Entre dos tierras comencé a caminar, 
entre dos tierras hubo mucho qué viajar,
Entre los viajes las culturas conocí, 
las diferencias y costumbres aprendí,
Son un disfrace de la personalidad, 
para integrarse en una comunidad,
Muchos disfraces sí que pude probar, 
mi preferido no lo tengo qué llevar



7. Wipeout Off The Comfort Zone 
-------------------------------
You were in my dream last night man! 
We were both waist deep in the ocean
You were cooking breakfast on this big stove 
Then a wave came and wiped us both out

And ruined our breakfast
We felt a sense of loss at first 
but then quickly realized it was all ok! 
I took it as a metaphor for my life. 

It's ok, it's ok i'm still here so it is ok!



8. Un Poco Tonton
-----------------
Me desperté, ya no estabas aqui
Este fue el dia que comensé a vivir 
Qué burro yo, te aprovechaste de mí
Bajo tu encanto fui un esclavo de tí
Tus palabras me mandaban y tus ojos me comían 
y tus labios me dejaban un poco tontón

Soy un tontón, porque no mucho cambio
Cantando por el mundo ahora es mi pasión
El pisto da, una posibilidad
Demasiado pisto sólo miedo me da
Que la plata se convierta en cadenas contra el tiempo 
Y su brillo que me deje  un poco tontón

And so, you're moving on and leaving me behind
And so, you're moving on and leaving me behind

De día, un poco tontón. De noche, un poco tontón
Me Llaman, un poco tontón, y cantan un poco tontón y cantan

Ven Tontón, cuando aprendes tu lección, 
cuando aprendes a aceptar, y dejar de soñar. 
Tu vida está lejos de la realidad, lejos de lo normal,
Un día vas a despertar 

And so, I'm moving on and leaving them behind
And so, I'm moving on and leaving them behind


9. La Seña
----------
I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
No one, no one will do it for me

Este sueño está en mi cabeza, 
lo dejo ir pero siempre regresa.
No me deja pensar en otras cosas, 
tiene mi mente bajo sus esposas
No va ser fácil de alcanzar la meta, 
si fuera fácil ni me diera cuenta,
¿Por qué tengo miedo de arriesgar mi buen lugar?, 
¿Por qué tengo miedo de no lograr, es una seña.  

¿Cuál es la seña uh?

parece que no estoy pensando ...
Estoy luchando, reaccionando, lastimando, defendiendo, 
solo que no estoy pensando

I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it
No one, no one will do it for me

Tendre miedo de lo que piensa el mundo, 
que digan que lo mio no es profundo,
Pero que va pasar si no lo pruebo, 
el quien no prueba ahi se queda. 
Se que mis ganas son mucho más fuertes, 
que el miedo al fracaso y lo que pierdes
Ya cuántas veces he logrado lo desconocido 
como cuando comencé a caminar de niño. 
¡Que buena seña! 

¿Cuál es la seña uh?

Ya no tengo miedo de la caída, 
porque voy a caer toda mi vida
Ya se que duele la caída al oyo, 
porque también lastima el orgullo
Tengo que ahogar mi orgullo, 
el es enemigo de mi sueño 
Me caigo me levanto y me caigo otra vez, 
es el momento cuando entiendo que no olvidaré 
- la seña, ¡esta es!

I gotta do it, cause I wanna do it


10. Enjoy the Ride 
------------------
Today the train left
Without me inside
I chose to take another one
here I am

I don't want to know, 
what could have been,
i want to enjoy this ride,
here i am

Choose wisely, enjoy the ride
You'll know what wise is, after the ride

Whatever you do, it's gonna come back to you, but don't worry it's gonna be fine fine fine. 


I WANNA SURF (2014)

This single containing 2 songs was recorded at the Gasthaus 
Grünenwald (www.gasthaus-gruenenwald.ch) around Christmas 2012 
and mixed by Lukas Speissegger (www.speissegger.ch) 
The song 'I wanna surf' is a tribute to the 
first Swiss surf documentary www.IWannaSurf.ch
1. I wanna surf 
---------------
You call me dreamer
head in the clouds yeah
I can't escape - no way

i wanna surf, i wanna surf, i wanna surf surf surf surf
i wanna surf, i wanna surf, i wanna surf surf surf surf

My mind is surfing
head in the waves yeah 
i'm slowly fading away

You call me dreamer
this is my life yeah
no need to escape

i wanna surf, i wanna surf, i wanna surf surf surf surf
i wanna surf, i wanna surf, i wanna surf surf surf surf


2. It was the wind 
--------------------
it was the wind who brought me here
and with the wind i disappear

My life is like a river
flowing to the sea
don't know how it all started
but i know where i will be

it was the wind who brought me here
and with the wind i disappear

my body starts to crumble
it's crying for relief
shall i wait for better times
or burn without belief

I need a sign to follow
to make sense out of this
A happy man once told me to
follow my own bliss




TAGHAZOUT (2011)

Produced and Recorded by Lukas Speissegger www.speissegger.ch
except 12. 'Quien Eres' Home production Al-Berto
except 11. 'The Search' preproduction version

Addtitional Musicians:
Jean-Pierre von Dach - Solo guitar on 6. 'Above the Fog'
Markus Duerrenberger - Akkordeon on 3. 'Esperanza'
 
First we only wanted to record a single, and it turned out to
be a whole album :) 

 
1. The World is like a Book                                 
---------------------------
For those who travel
For those who stay
The world is a book
That's what they say

So what are you
looking for?
Is it salvation or
danger?

This is how it feels when you're on a journey
when you start to read the book about the world
if you don't travel stay in a safe place
you only get to read the first page

I am only trying to read the whole book about the world

so many places
so many faces
many religions and
languages

everybody wants serenity 
hang out with your friends like you and me
everything is new and somehow the same
what is life about through another frame

no matter what you expected
it's only a fraction of 
what you'll find
and no one tells you
that's  no easy read


2. Jack Johnson
---------------

People say to me I sound like Jack Johnson
That is fine with me and so i wrote this song.
I don't want to sing  i want to surf like Jack Johnson
and I want to live by the ocean.

ay ay ay i want to live by the ocean
ou ou ou, i want to surf like Jack Johnson 
uuuh, i want to live by the ocean,
 and feel the waves like Jack Johnson, ahh

G. Love & Special Sauce, Donovan Frankenreiter, 
The Beautiful Girls, John Butler Trio
People say they sound like Jack Johnson
Or is it  b just because they all live by the ocean?

well i have to see, i grew up in the mountains
i can feel the rock, love the smell when it snows


3. Esperanza
------------
Sueño cada dia, de ese lugar
que tanto me atrae y quiero llegar

No se lo que me espera, cansado de esperar 
es la esperanza que me hace caminar

salir, correr, dejar, volver sin regresar
volver, correr, salir, dejar sin olvidar

Sueño cada dia, de ese lugar
que tanto me atrae si voy a llegar

No se lo que me espera, no puedo regresar
es la esperanza, no me deja olvidar

ESPERANZA - Al-Berto & the Fried Bikinis [official video] from Fabian Weber on Vimeo.



4. Sweet Melodies
-----------------
Toujours avec, les melodies
dans mes oreilles il y a pas de bruit
En voyage, sur la plage,
The melodies, yes please

sweet melodies, are always travelling with me

Ce ne sont pas les mots, ni les histoires
qui restes colles a mes oreilles
c'est comme le vent, qui me caresse
The melodies, yes please

et si un jour, sans melodies
tout ce qu'il faut faire, c'est voyager
laisse toi aller, sur ton trajet
et tu entendra mmhhh


5. Sigo Mi Vida
---------------
Can you tell me, how you,  feel when you get pierced  
by the vibes of that sound that is streaming through your body
through your head through your soul, and through your soul man!
intuiition is the move to keep alive the rythm
see the children dancing to the rythm of their
song thats the reason why i'm going on laughing and 
dancing with steady rythm in my body. 
melody unite my soul with what  i feel now

yo sigo mi vida
pregunto si es una mentira
con cada paso
siento cual es mi verdad

Me puedes contar lo que sientes
el sonido atravese tu mente
te hace la piel de gallina  
o te da fuerza de gasolina
es la cancion de tu vida
te hace bailar cada dia
tu rytmo es el tuyo tu vida tambien
baila tu vida tu rytmo tambien


6. Above the Fog
----------------
Hey don't you know we should be moving
cause look outside the fog's almost in front of the house 
so take your cup of coffee and start drinking
and then we should go and see the sun

but hey do you think we gonna make it?
cause look outside the fog is already here, oh oh
look at the trees they are moving cause the wind 
is blowing that comes with the fog

Inside the fog it feels kind of cozy
don't worry about the things that you can't see. 
I see that the trees are moving in the wind
who wants to know where the wind comes from

we are creatures of the sun, we don't belong underground
that's why we always end up above the fog.
here i can see as far as i want to be
i wonder about the things that remain in the fog


7. Kickstart My Heart (remake of the Moetly Crue Song)
---------------------
When I get high I get high on speed
Top fuel funny car's A drug for me
My heart, my heart Kickstart my heart
Always got the cops Coming after me
Custom built bike doing 103
My heart, my heart Kickstart my heart

Ooh,are you ready girls? Ooh,are you ready now?
Ooh, yeah Kickstart my heart
Give it a start Ooh, yeah, baby
Ooh, yeah Kickstart my heart
Hope it never stops Ooh, yeah, baby

Skydive naked from an aeroplane
Or a lady with a Body from outerspace
My heart, my heart Kickstart my heart
Say I got trouble Trouble in my eyes
I'm just looking for Another good time
My heart, my heart Kickstart my heart

Yeh, are you ready girls?
Yeh, are you ready now?
Ooh, yeah 
Kickstart my heart Give it a start
Ooh, yeah, baby 
Ooh, yeah
Kickstart my heart Hope it never stops
Ooh, yeah, baby

Ooh, kickstart my heart...

When we started this band
All we needed, needed was a laugh
Years gone by...
I'd say we've kicked some ass
When I'm enraged Or hittin' the stage
Adrenaline rushing Through my veins
And I'd say we're still kickin' ass

Ooo, ahh, kickstart my heart
Hope it never stops
And to think, we did all of this...
To rock


8. Like a Rubberband
--------------------
Try to strech me like a rubberband
I will return to who i am

Upside downside one thing you should know
I return to myself when you let me go

Try to change the way a river flows
To the ocean is where it goes


9. Cut n Bass
-------------
how did we get there?
there is sand under our feet
this planet should be blue
but its dizzely green

no matter what i say its still so
i'd like to stay but dont know where to go
fish are bubbling in the white white o
life is easy and the country flows
mo matter what i say its still so,
dont know where to go, dont know where to go

we left the red planet
for a better place
cause we were too greedy
like the human race

I wish we be could be living
without killing a place
why are we so greedy
like the human race?


10. Wise Men
------------
the higher you fly
the deeper you fall.
once you are high
don't forget us below  
it was a wise man who told me so.

the harder you try
the less you will flow
sometimes you have
just to let go
it was a wise man who told me so.

"so many things i don't know" 

do you know god
i said i don't know
he said he was was a believer
and thats a hard job.
it was a wise man who told me so.

if you are clever,
you can do what you want,
i am a true believer
and that's what I want!
it was a wise man who told me so.

so many things i don't know
so many people i meet on the road
everyone's got a story
i could learn from
but instead i have to learn it on my own

i take on my path
but there is no road
i can't see a signs
where shall i go?
there is no wise man to tell me so.
[ that's ok, cause i can do it on my own]

Where ever i go
i will keep my flow
and when i fly high
i know where i'm from
no need no wise man to tell me so.

so many things i don't know
so many people i meet on the road
everyone's got a story
i could learn from
but i want to learn it on my own.

11. The Search
--------------
We're on the search of happiness
Somedays we get more or less
everyday we're running without rest
we're on the search of happiness

running hiking walking falling
in the search of glorious moments
i feel bad and so tired
my eyes are open and i'm focused
i keep running, i'm on fire
cause i'm filled with one desire
i'd do all for happiness
i'm not blind for this test


12. Quien Eres
--------------
por cuantos caminos tu quieres contarme lo que no eres
contarme lo que sabias las ideas que tu tenias

pero si quieres, contarme lo que eres
con allegria te escuchare todo el dia

lo que quieres, lo que amas y que llena tu vida
lo que quieres, lo que amas y   te lleva para arriba

camino el destino, no se de donde vino
son las cosas que no adivino, ni aunque tome vino
Dime porque, me cuentas cosas que yo ya se
es lo otro que m interesa que solo existe en tu cabeza

estoy buscando la forma que esta dentro de la norma - lidad 
de tus pensamientos para que entiendias estos cuentos

no se de cual manera te fuiste mas afuera
de lo que sabias, las ideas que tu tenias



BYRON BAY (2009)

Produced & Recorded by Lukas Speissegger www.speissegger.ch
except 13 'Hehehehey' home production by  Al-Berto

The album was first recorded in 2008 as a 4 Song EP including the songs
Dive, Single for a week, Time is all, Yo te quiero. After the success
in the video clips of those songs the demand for more grew in the
climbing scene. So the whole album was recorded in 2009.

 
1. Dive                                 
-------
If you wanna meet me
don't go to a bar
If you wanna hear me
in that boulevard
just dive into your head
unlock your dusty soul
i'm the wind in your hair
the song where you come from

Soy el gusanito
me ves te da igual
te crees muy bonito
y sentimental
just dive into your head
unlock your dusty soul
i'm the wind in your hair
the song where you come from


2. Single for a Week
--------------------
when i was single for a week
i had the world to my feet
i had the keys to the city
all the girls looked damn hot pretty

no thoughts on you at any time
i laughed at sadness i felt fine
i had the keys to the city
all the girls looked damn hot pretty

pretty mini fried bikini
what you wear is very meany
i was single for a week
i was king but i am too weak.

but then again i was the same
there were no cells in my brain
they were all downstairs at the party
cause all the girls looked damn hot pretty    

I am too horny for my own good
the pretty girs says it's ok dude
you can touch me, it's just a pity
i am not the only girl in this city

Hot girl is holding my hand
my life as single comes to an end
i am in love, and i bounce
one day we're kings, but most we're clowns


3. Tu piel sabe a miel
----------------------
tu risa me acarizia tu olor en el calor dame otro beso de licor
tu piel sabe a miel tu olor en el calor dame otro beso de licor
cuando andas por las calles mueves tu cadera mira y mi corazon
tu mirada deja nada de pereza en mi cabeza y mi corazon

ven mi amor dame otro de beso de licor 
que ya estoy ebrio de amor de tu olor en el calor

sueño despierto, despierto me voy

ven mi amor dame otro de beso de licor

sueño despierto, despierto me voy
me gusta vivir y soñar donde voy
vivo mi sueño, mi sueño de hoy
sueño despierto, y despierto me voy

esos dias van deprisa tu recuerdo me da risa, que locura y dolor
si estuvieras en mi vida, quemarias todavia por locura y dolor
que alivio de saber que ya no te puedo ver mira y mi corazon
o sera asi que un dia vendras aqui y quemaras mi corazon? 


4. Quit that game
-----------------

quit that game
hey, this is just a song, would you come?
and then you came and you would try to pull my strings again
I'm so sick of your games
that you try to play 
won't you just quit that game.
come back to life and be with me

won't you be with me?
anything con migo, mas y mas, mas y mas,
y si te vas, nunca estaras mas y mas, mas y mas
y se me voy, nunca estas con migo mas y mas, mas y mas
y si te vas, nunca estaras mas y mas

hey, solo es una cancion, sal de tu cajon
luego saliste y tratste de cambiar mi cansion  
ya stoy harto de tu ley
que me tratas de imponer
porque no dejas de ver
solo por ti ven aqui


5. Searching for you
--------------------
I've been a longtime searching for truth
there was a way between our youth
had always tried to be by your side
i came out, but you were too proud

i am sorry, i tried so hard
so you could hurt me, be my silent art
my hope did grow, with every twist of the knife
that one day you could be my life

to 
gimme your heart, gimme your soul
gimme all your problems and i give you my heart
i would give you my soul, too

you were not right, i was not wrong,
you were too pretty and i was too young
today I'm older, i think i learned my part
days are over of my broken heart


6. Sweet Summertime
-------------------
Sweet Summertime
(album version)
summertime is a song
when i come its gone
hanging out in time
thinking of you, thinking of you

(youtube version)
I am looking for this summer-song
but when i come the song has gone
i often hang out back in time
thinking of you

And so it comes, warms you up
chills you down, sweet summertime, sweet summertime

sand, wind, sun
some birds are having fun
girls are working their tan
boys are looking at them

i move on 
still looking for this summer-song
i heard it in that store, 
eating ice-cream i am not sure

was it over on the street?
it was hot when i was hit,
the brick-wall and the cake of cheese
in the hammock in the breeze
where i slept in my surrong
i heard the song moving along
inside my brain so what a shame
i did not see from where it came

(youtube version)
i am looking for this summer song
but when i come the song has gone
humming bird flies by
humming this song of summertime


7. My Brain is a Slavedriver
----------------------------
something got me driving all day long
and it is deciding if i'm right or wrong

when i was three i had to be
that awesome kid they want to see
when i was nine i felt fine
i played all day did not fit line

when i was twelve true to myself
my world was clear i had no fear
until one day i had i crush
i started running in a rush

i began to smoke and to drink
i was worried what they would think
about my life and my choices
my head was stuck with all those voices

am i a slave of the world
am i a slave of myself
i hear my thoughts all through the night 
why are these thoughts in my mind?

am i a slave of my expectations
am i a slave of your expectations
i'd like to see how it is to be
when you live free from society
why is it wild when i stop to think
live like child that is true and sings

am i a slave of my expectations
am i a slave of your expectations
some like to be what they see on tv
others like see what they cannot be
and beastie boys say to you all
be true to yourself and you will never fall


8. Yo te quiero
---------------
Yo te quiero mas y mas que en el tiempo cuando yo te amaba mas

mira que sera, mira que sera

Mira mamasita linda todo el mundo esta perdido y mi corazon
Yo quiero mas olor en el calor de tu amor

Tu te fuiste y me salvaste cuando vos te escapaste de mi corazon
Yo quiero mas sabor y no rencor de amor 


9. I wanna bleed on a Cactus Tree
---------------------------------
A drive on a desert no clouds in the sky
the sun is low and the heat is high
you won't believe what i saw on a tree
weird of a man singing down to me

I wanna bleed on a cactus tree

The man looked friendly down to me
he said won't you come up and hang on with me
he seemed happy doing his thing
so i climbed up and now we sing

It seems awkward even to me
one week later over the trees
thousands of people singing this song
we are so many we can't be wrong


10. Time is all we have
----------------------- 
Es el tiempo en la vida
Un amor no se olvida
en el corazon en un rincon
siempre estara asi sera
si fue verdad, el tiempo 
lo descubrira

for everyone time is free,
we have the power to be free
to do with it as we wish and
everyone can have a wish

mira mamasita linda todo el mundo esta perdido y mi corazon,
dame otro beso.

Es el tiempo en mi vida
que me enseña todavia
que mi corazon es un ladron
mira aqui esta que pena da
es la verdad, el tiempo
me lo-curara

mira mamasita linda todo el mundo esta perdido y mi corazon,
dame otro beso
es el tiempo que te enseña, con el tiempo apreciaras
de tu corazon, y de tu vida


11. Just let go mate
--------------------
sometimes you got to believe
that you're gonna make it
that you're ruling your world
with your thoughts. And then you re gonna
believe everything is in it
when you're ruling your world
with your thoughts

just let go mate, everything is alright, when you're here

Ann loves Ken, cause he is the man
but Ken is in love, with the girl from above
so what can, do little Ann
buy a fan, yes she can
to dry her tears, and open her ears
open her eyes and stop with the lies
she's telling herself, harming herself
look at Ralph, he plays golf
his magic stick with the funky trick
ken is a dick and Ralph is so sick

Ann does know how to go
off on Ralph while he plays golf
his magic stick with the trick
belongs to Ann not to Joanne
Joe Ann peter pan
skinny man with no tan
he is on the road
but his blood is running cold
he's not old he's not bold
and his veins full of grains
of Vaseline and heroine
of love and hate like his mate
on the floor in the bore
life is nothing in the coffin
and he goes on and on
on and on on and on


12. El Sol
----------
Good morning, i m goin to tell a story  

about a girl, who died for fame and glory
sus ojos de todos los colores
y su corazon sin pedir perdon

and so are you

esa chica fue la campeona de los dolores
no porque los tenia sino porque los hacia
lo sabia? No lo se todavia
y su corazon sin pedir perdon

and so are you

About  a girl, who killed me with
su belleza, i guess she would  impress ya
con sus labios, you only wanna kiss those
y su corazon sin pedir perdon 

but i killed her from mi corazon
she is dead, in mi corazon
she lives for ever in mi corazon

and so are you


13. Hehehehey
-------------
Yo llego por la luna , tu llegas pot el sol
quando llego ya tes ido ya saltando para ya
quando llegas yo me ido ya volando para ya.
nuestras vidas no se cruzan, no hay camino par andar

yo camino y camino tu te quedas no te vas
estoy lejos de tu vida soy la nieve tu el mar
dime porque estas sentada en mi camino para ya
si me siento a tu lado llevame a bailar

Yo llego por la luna , tu llegas pot el sol
quando llego ya tes ido ya saltando para ya
quando llegas yo me ido ya volando para ya.
nuestras vidas no se cruzan, no hay camino par andar



CHECK ME OUT (2005)

After a year of climbing and surfing a lot of ideas were ready to be
recorded and 'check me out' was born on a classic 8-track recorder. 
10 Songs reflecting on a incredible year. Here two songs we still
play on concerts.

 
1. Si tu vida                                 
-------------
Si tu vida se parece a la mia
estaras bailando de alegria
estaras llorando por un amor
estaras soñando de otra vida

y no te atreves a vivirla
por tu temor de no conseguirla
por tu temor que a medio camino
este camino no te convino

si ta vie est la meme que la mienne
tu danse et t'es heureux quand meme
tu reves de tes amours dans le passe
et de la vie que t'a jamais essaye

et t'oses pas d'y aller
parce que t'as peur de pas arriver
parce que t'as peur, qu'au mi chemin
ce chemin etait pas le tien

te sientes perdio te sientes jodido
esta es la vida que has escogido
si no te atreves a cambiar
con las ganas te vas a quedar
 

2. Alone on the moon
--------------------
It's so simple, simple to be
it's so simple, i think i'm not here
i'm alone on the moon
i'm alone on the moon

Seals are over, over the beach
clouds are waving, waves they can't reach
i'm alone on the moon
i'm alone on the moon

And i'd like to share this with you

I feel like staying, go for a swim
we keep on driving, i think i'm no in
i'm alone on the moon
i'm alone on the moon

It's so simple, simple to be
why can't i simply be me

And i'd like to share this with you
why can't i simply be me


3. Tumble your mind 
--------------------
What would you do if i sat next to you?
Would you close your eyes or would you close your mind?

Mira mamasita linda todo el mundo esta perdido
y mi corazon
