well, it’s getting hot in here the pavement songs I’ve sung ‘em for all to hear well it’s been so cold in here i’ve been waiting so long, but no one’s coming near once more it’s cold in here a summer breeze is piercing through, but all i see is fear for burning up in here and I don’t seem to understand the fading lights of my own sabbatical year
2.
She shakes on the phone I never wanna see her go on and on ‘bout things you don’t discuss when you’re all alone but she just rattles on and on and on I gotta bring her down ‘cause she off her bones she’s dancing to the smiths, but on her own and singing out of tune cause she’s home alone macauley culkin libertines getting stoned they’re singing YEAH YEAH YEAH she’s down on the farm with Alex and the kids, such a charmin’ man say cheese to all the tourists from Japan soon returning to the streets of Amsterdam to go YEAH YEAH YEAH!

I know you 03:28
well I wanted to see you another day but the words that you said didn’t come my way or any other way and I know you, you were right again but I’ll show you, well I wanted to tell you that you could stay but the words that came out seemed to fade away like a painting of claude monet and I know you, you were right again but I’ll show you i wanted to see you i wanted to feel you again how you do what you do when do what you do to your man well I wanted to feel you another day but you’re so out of touch with reality, my stroke seems to lead you astray do I know you, am I right again let me show you i wanted to see you i wanted to feel you again how you do what you do when do what you do to your man
4.
Do it 02:03
you do it yeah you do it when you do what you do then you do what you do when you do what you do then you do what you do and you do it you do it you do when you do it when you do what you do then you do what you do when you do what you do and you do it you do it you do
5.
I take a lot from everyone I’ll give it back to just anyone I’ve been doing it all since I was young and do it all again no way no way no way a winner wasting what he once won the singer singing the same sad old song I felt it once but now I feel numb every other day no way no way no way I got everything to lose I took a lot from everyone but I gave it back to just anyone I never knew what I’d become I’ve felt it all, I did it all, I knew I’d fall into nothingness any other day no way no way no way I got everything to lose
6.
New Deal 02:14
I wanna try for you only I am trying to kill the future and I can’t feel the things they seem so unreal just wanna kiss Kim & Kelly Deal I wanna fly on flight 666 and then I would even try to overthrow the pilot and I think you know why he’s a better singer than I but I surely doubt if he feels I got the better part of both deals
7.
Clap clap 02:27
well I see you going off on your own and I see you dancing there all alone and I can tell that you’re a long way from home in your world where you’ve become Jakob Boehm and I see you’re getting started just by being broken hearted and I see you going funny touch your fanny for the money and you’re feeling unknown with no direction you’re gone and you don’t want to be alone left without a backbone and I see you try to find your way home but it’s gone, it’s gone gone gone on the sidewalk humming a Fall song ‘cos you don’t know just where to belong and you see me starin’ at ya your manga eyes just met mine then we know we’re broken hearted got too nervous so I farted and I see you walkin’ away walkin’ walkin’ walkin’ away and I see you walkin’ away and I still see you in the distance a mere shadow of existence I feel like showing some resistance but I’m lacking the persistence should i follow you if you just wanna spend it on your own
8.
U-Talk 04:32
You talk bout everything you like here I don’t wanna hear you go on about the newsfeed You cunt i know you never got it but I just hit the wall like a tramp that hits the garbage You come like you never really had it coming onto you is like playing with my boundaries You fuck and now I got it can only shut you up if I keep on getting at it
9.
when i see you thrilled by a lustrous light you come careering out of the darkest night cos you’re a sight for sore eyes (2x) come with the trumpets sounding shrill with fright come with the flutes and pipes, the mutter of drums and i wrestle through what i write no boughs to nestle my body, weary of empty clasp, strong as a lion sharp as the sting of a wasp but when i kill we all go down when i kill we go down and i am numb number one and i’m awake in the grip of the snake the eagle slashes with beak and claw and we withdraw come with the beasts come with the flutter of man and you are born to death on the horn of the unicorn and we all go down and i am numb number one and i rave and i rape and i rip and i rend everlasting world without an end

about

Ensor Amsterdam, The Netherlands

Ensor is indierock in its purest form, loudQUIETloud, strong choruses, tender verses, crazy lyrics and each instrument delivering what is necessary to come to a great popsong.
Pixies, Pavement, dEUS, Ramones, Smashing Pumpkins, Elastica, and a healthy dose of Amsterdam idiocy.
Practice, perform, play, practice, play, perform, yeah yeah yeah!
