Track Name: Stretching for the sky
Stretching for the sky
(lyrics by Dimitris Lampos, Kostis Stefopoulos and Manolis Chrysanthou)

It was a long time ago, a thousand miles away
I was stretching for the sky, for that crystal blue ethereal way
I felt the rain from above, my mojo was all gone
I was stretching for your touch, all downbeat and alone
And I fell down on my knees, the broken mirrors of my dreams
Now I’m stretching for the sky, it’s turning red or so it seems

The light of night

If you wanna go, do it now, do it somehow
If you wanna see the light of night
If you wanna find the darkness of day

a wee little song that came out during a hazy soundcheck in one of our live show nights, somewhere around 2013... the venue we were playing at, was burned a few weeks later under dubious circumstances... isn't that a lovely story?

Blues in E minor and mild despair

I got 37 dollars and I don’t know what to do
Should I spend it here darling, should I spend it all on you
Should I just go out right now, get us some ice cream and some wine
Would that make our lives better or even just this night fine?
It’s only money, blood money

That's an improvisational song we penned as the closing theme for all our live shows. Manolis insisted on not adding any more chords to the damn thing than e minor and a7, holding true to his moto "if it's good don't fix it". and you know what? people didn't seem to mind, not at all, on the contrary, they always seemed to enjoy it.... as for the lyrics, they refer to a certain night in New York during the last milenium, when I was left with just 37 dollars in my pocket and a lot of hope for the future. Many years later, the 37 dollars and the hope are both long gone.
Isn't that a lovely story?
