about

A very accomplished album, where Milkymee dives us into her gracefully melancholic musing, with multiple electronic tones often mixed with rage and smoothness, using sounds of her everyday life. She tries to exceed the various visible or invisible borders. A singular voice always suave, delivers us a portrait of a firmly contemporary, elegiac and audacious woman.

THERE ARE TIMES LIKE THIS WHEN ONE ABSOLUTELY MUST GO

AND EVERYTHING HIDDEN WILL BE MADE MANIFEST
WE LL OPEN OUR EYES AND EARS AND WE'LL HOPE FOR THE BEST
YOU KNOW I M WEAKER ON MY FEAT THAN IN MY VERY LONG SPEECHES AND WE'RE JUST A MASH UP OF WHAT WE CHOOSE TO LET INTO OUR LIVES WHAT HAS BEEN WILL BE AND THERE IS NOTHING NEW UNDER THE SUN
SOON EVERYTHING HIDDEN WILL BE MADE MANIFEST
WE LL OPEN OUR EYES AND EARS AND WE'LL HOPE FOR THE... SOON EVERYTHING HIDDEN WILL BE MADE MANIFEST
WE LL OPEN OUR EYES AND EARS AND WE'LL HOPE FOR THE BEST
Track Name: Before the Truth
YOUR OLD HANDS WERE SHAKING IN THE EARLY MORNING IN A CRAPPY HOSPITAL I WISH I COULD FORGET
YOU STRUGGLED WITH LIFE AND I WISH I COULD HAVE REPAIRED YOUR BROKEN DREAMS BEFORE YOU LEFT
HEY YOU ARE AIMLESS AND SERENE NOW AND MY LOVE FOR YOU IS UNDER LOCK AND KEY (*2)
ITS 6 IN THE MORNING IN A RENTED ROOM IN THE BIGGEST CITY IN THE WORLD
IT S 6 IN THE MORNING AND THE ROAD IS LONG BEFORE I FIND THE TRUTH AND RIGHT AFTER
HEY YOU ARE AIMLESS AND SERENE NOW AND MY LOVE FOR YOU IS UNDER LOCK AND KEY (REPEAT)
Track Name: A Little bit too Fast
IT'S FUN TO GET YOU DRUNK
AND LAUGH AT WHAT WE'RE NOT
MY HEART MAY BE BLIND PUNK
BUT EVEN AFTER A FEW DRINKS, WELL MY EYES ARE NOT
SOON WE'LL TAKE OUR CLOTHES OFF A LITTLE BIT TOO FAST
SOON THERE WON'T BE ANYWAY
TO FREEZE TIME
SO LET'S KILL TIME TOGETHER
LET'S KILL TIME, LET'S KILL TIME TOGETHER
AND TOMORROW WE'LL WAKE UP A LITTLE BIT TOO LATE AND THE DAY WILL BE LOST
NAKEDNESS OF THOUGHTS BETWEEN US
MIXED UP WITH SILENCES
AND MY STUPID EMPTY FRIDGE THAT SOUNDS BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
MY STUPID EMPTY FRIDGE THAT SOUNDS BZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
HEY LET'S TAKE OUR CLOTHES OFF A LITTLE BIT TOO FAST
SOON THERE WON'T BE ANYWAY TO FREEZE TIME
HEY LET'S TAKE OUR CLOTHES OFF A LITTLE BIT TOO FAST
SOON THERE WON'T BE ANYWAY TO FREEZE TIME
SO LET'S KILL TIME TOGETHER
LET'S KILL TIME, LET'S KILL TIME TOGETHER
LET'S KILL TIME LET'S KILL TIME
LET'S KILL TIME LET'S KILL TIME
LET'S KILL TIME LET'S KILL TIME TOGETHER
Track Name: Good Luck
I HAD TO LEAVE MY HOME BEHIND
I LOVED IT MUCH HEY NEVERMIND
HOME IS JUST A PLACE TO LIVE IN
AND I HAVE MANY FRIENDS AND A BUNCH OF NEW SONGS GOOD TUNES THAT WE CAN SING ALONG
ALL IN ALL IT'S EASY I JUST WANT TO BE ALL IN ALL IT S EASY I JUST LONG TO BE
EVERY DAY IS JUST A BLESS DAY WHEN MUSIC WAKES YOU UP SING ALONG DON'T GIVE UP
I MIGHT BE SOMEWHERE IN BETWEEN
WHAT S REAL COULD ALSO BE JUST A DREAM
ALL IN ALL IT'S EASY I JUST WANT TO BE ALL IN ALL IT S EASY I JUST LONG TO BE
I VE BEEN UP I'VE BEEN DOWN
I'VE BEEN ALONE AND I'VE BEEN FOUND RUNNING AFTER SOME CLOUD
NOW WHAT'S REAL WHAT S REAL COULD ALSO BE JUST A DREAM.
Track Name: Almost at Home

ALMOST AT HOME
ALMOST HOME
I'VE MET GOOD FRIENDS AND I'VE STILL GOT MY LUCKY NECKLACE SOMETHING TELLS ME MY PERFECT WORLD IS JUST FOUND

AND BEAUTY SURROUNDS ALMOST AT HOME
WHERE BEAUTY SURROUNDS I'M ALMOST AT HOME
Track Name: Colouring Outside the Lines
TIC TAC TIC TAC TIC TAC TOE...
I SPENT THE WHOLE SUMMER COLOURING OUTSIDE THE LINES WITH A GIRL WHOSE WORDS AND LAUGHTER
COULD DRIVE ME HIGH AND LOW
AND EVERYDAY SHE KEEPS ON FREEZING MY SORROW INTO STONE I SPENT THE WHOLE SUMMER COLOURING OUTSIDE THE LINES

AND WE RE SO CLOSE AND WE SO NEAR T HAT WHEN WE TOUCH WE DISAPPEAR
TIC TAC...
YEAH WE'RE SO CLOSE AND WE'RE SO NEAR THAT IF WE TOUCH
WE DISAPPEAR
Track Name: Hey the Stars!
RISE UP RISE UP
THE TRUMPETS ARE PLAYING CHASING THE DREAMS OF MEN
THE STARS ARE LEFT UNLIT
AND THE FIRE IS BURNING
BUT WHERE ARE THE DREAMS OF MEN ?
HEY RISE UP !
WHEN TIMES ARE HARD
I LL HOLD MY HEAD UP HIGH
AND IF THE RAIN KEEPS RAINING ON I KNOW IT WON T BE LONG
RISE UP RISE UP HEY THE TRUMPETS ARE PLAYING CHASING THE DREAMS OF MEN
THE STARS ARE LEFT UNLIT
& THE FIRE IS BURNING
CHASING THE DREAMS OF MEN HEY RISE UP!
WHEN TIMES ARE HARD
I LL HOLD MY HEAD UP HIGH
AND IF THE RAIN KEEPS RAINING ON I KNOW IT WON T BE LONG
Track Name: Cinco de Mayo
I HOPE I CAN CATCH YOU AGAIN NEXT TIME I M IN THIS NECK OF THE HOOD
WE COULD MEET SOMEWHERE DOWNTOWN RIDE OUR BIKES & SWIM
I ALWAYS TREAT YOU LIKE A BROTHER MY FRIEND
WE HELD EACH OTHER THROUGH THE BAD WEATHER AND WE DANCED
BUT NOW YOU RE GONE FOR GOOD AND THERE S NO REAL POINT
IN ARGUING WITH ETERNITY
IN ALL MY SONGS THERE S ALWAYS
AN EMPTY SPACE
WHERE I DECIDED I WOULD SIMPLY SET YOUR NAME
IT WILL BE FIRMLY STUCK THERE IN BETWEEN THE NOTES 8 SMALL LETTERS LAUGHING, APPEASING MY SOUL
HEY YOU RE GONE FOR GOOD
YOU RE GONE FORE GOOD
AND ALL THE PARTS OF ME ARE DISPERSED AGAIN YEAH YOU RE GONE FOR GOOD *3
THERE S NO REAL POINT IN ARGUING W ETERNITY
Track Name: Unconditional
YOU, YOU WISH I COULD LOVE YOU YOU, YOU WISH I COULD BE YOU

YOU, YOU THINK YOU'RE STRONG ENOUGH FOR ME YOU, YOU THINK YOU'RE MY NEVER-ENDING STORY YOU, YOU THINK YOU'RE CLOSE TO WHAT I NEED YOU, YOU FEEL MY BLOOD FLOWING ON YOUR KNEES
BUT WHERE ARE YOU ?
WHERE ARE YOU WHEN I'M DRIFTING AWAY
I DON'T BELONG TO U
STAY BACK FROM ME, GET AWAY FROM MY REALM I DON'T BELONG TO YOU
I WISH I COULD LOVE YOU I WISH I COULD LOVE YOU
Track Name: Monday
THERE'S A STORY HERE I FEAR
YOU JUST WOULDN'T LIKE TO HEAR
BUT SEE I SIMPLY CAN'T SIT STILL
WAITING FOR THE NEXT FIRE DRILL
I TRY NOT TO GET BORED
BUT EVERYTHING S BEEN SAID AND DONE AND THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I M ASHAMED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE HUMAN RACE AND THIS IS ONE SUCH OCCASION
YEAH THIS IS ONE SUCH OCCASION
IT FELT LIKE MONDAY ALL WEEK... (4)
SEVEN YEARS HERE SEVEN YEARS THERE IS THAT THE CAUSE OF MY DISAPPEAR ?
I DISAPPEARED INTO COMPLETE SILENCE AND I SIMPLY NEVER CAME BACK
HEY THERE ARE TIMES WHEN I M ASHAMED TO BE A MEMBER OF THE HUMAN RACE
AND THIS IS ONE SUCH OCCASION
IT FELT LIKE MONDAY ALL WEEK... (4)
Track Name: Pearl's Dream
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS A PRETTY FLY. HE HAD A PRETTY WIFE, THIS PRETTY FLY, BUT ONE DAY SHE FLEW AWAY, FLEW AWAY. SHE HAD TWO PRETTY CHILDREN,
BUT ONE NIGHT THESE TWO PRETTY CHILDREN FLEW AWAY, FLEW AWAY, INTO THE SKY,
INTO THE MOON.
