about

It seems we all have two selves; a human self and a Universe self. My human self is a clown named Henk and my Universe self is Oo, and Oo is an Instrument of Imaginative Revelations. This song is a dialogue between them. They both like magic, albeit on different levels, and in different ways. They are also both funny. Isn't life but a lucid dream? But then, I also just like to observe it all, watch it unfold, and see what happens. I am particularly fond of surprises. This "I" speaking here is the human-form-I of course. Or is it? The Universe has a most peculiar sense of humour.

lyrics

I am a god,
Of nothing I shape a little world
With a bite of each arm,
Subtle, nice and bold
It comes in many ways
And i know by now
Beckon the ancient fires
This is my evening dress
I watch them glow
and I will stay
Your gnarly ghost
Happening at the same time:
Your shining guide,
Delight all the darling boys
With or without the old soul-and-so
You just can't bribe brightness

Sleepers should be dreamers, oh i know
It's so obvious it drives me crazy
Making up entire scenes
That used to taste so sweet to me
And if you want to catch those arrows on your bow
You should simply believe, and
Do & be & do do be do
Waahoooooooooo

I'm on a train of thought
I've got nothing but nought
I should have brought
My binoculars, oh
See me boys, looking for something
I'm down in the dumplings,
Open the bin bag
Bragging and boasting, b&b
You're surely not just anybody
But what's in a name?
You're not yourself,
You just can't bribe brightness

Sleepers should be dreamers, oh i know
It's so obvious it drives me crazy
Making up entire scenes
That used to taste so sweet to me
And if you want to catch those arrows on your bow
You should simply believe, and
Do & be & do do be do
Waahoooooooooo
