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!

Track Name: The day i tried to call you from my coffin
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
Track Name: Yeah Yeah Yeah
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!
Track Name: I know you
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
Track Name: Do it
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
Track Name: A song to cut like a knife
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
Track Name: New Deal
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
Track Name: Clap clap
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
Track Name: U-Talk
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
Track Name: The Magickal Return of Scorpio Scarecrow
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
