I’ve seen the people bow their heads To the man on top in his power suit White-collar conservative feds Don’t you dare take that forbidden fruit Put the heat on Put the heat on Put the heat on You choose your own demise Can’t you choose what’s right But the weather’s still pretty nice Stay outdoors, stay outta sight Put the heat on Put the heat on Put the heat on

I got time baby, I got money too But I can’t, spend it on you I’ve been looking for a way, to let you know That I’ve had enough, since a long long time ago Well now baby Don’t you wait for me I said now baby Good times, good times Coming to me Baby I’ve been on the road, and I’ve seen the show And I just can’t, take no more The sad truth is, that I’d rather keep on Than to come back home, and find out your gone Well now baby Don’t you wait for me I said now baby Good times, good times Coming to me You’re always trying, trying to take control But the good times are coming, I’m gonna let them roll Take me some time off, ain’t gonna weep and moan If you can’t beat the blues, join it and make it your own Well now baby Don’t you wait for me I said now baby Good times, good times Coming to me

Just met you baby But I can’t do by myself Turn around slowly I hope to see you standing there Then I watched you from afar Had me hypnotized, paralyzed Sitting down, you sat across from me Then I realized, we had a bus stop wedding But then you gone and went And I started wondering why Why’d you do the things to me That made me, made me cry You returned the next day But the feeling was gone Now I know I had myself fooled Believing that you, and me, And the world, could think That a failed bus stop wedding Could be agony too

Baby, you look pale by the moonlight And baby, this place ain’t really outta sight Office ceiling and holes in the wall Bland red carpeting, that says it all Honey honey, let’s just go home I know it’s been a riot Honey honey, can’t take no more Gotta go back where it’s quiet Been at this party for nearly two days And it all it all it all just seems like a haze Man, I really need to take me a vacation Gotta go, reach the next phase Cause if I don't get outta here Gonna lose my fucking mind Honey honey, let’s just go home I know it’s been a riot Honey honey, can’t take no more Gotta go back where it’s quiet Layin’ down on the red carpet floor, I don’t think I can take no more Lay me down a line, cut it up well, Messin’ with my brain, it has seen hell Gonna take me a pill and grab me a drink I don’t think I, I can’t think Feeling good, feeling bad Flying high, it’s kinda sad Gotta go, go on home, mmm, take me some time off Lay down on the couch, do some work in the garden Play some games... Maybe pet the dog a little, I don’t know Just…, just… take it easy Honey honey, let’s just go home I know it’s been a riot Honey honey, can’t take no more Gotta go back where it’s quiet

When the day is done And everybody has gone His puppets will dance His puppets will dance   I have been The only one who has seen His wild romance His wild romance Nobody but me can see his feast In his trance he makes the skeletons Do their wicked dance Their wicked dance Glowing eyes in the dark Nothing else, just a spark Strange and intense Strange and intense I have seen The only one who has been So entranced So entranced Nobody but me can see his feast In his trance he makes the skeletons Do their wicked dance Their wicked dance

Travelling at the speed of light We lost too many battles Shooting stars in the night Ship can’t take no more hassle Lasers blaring Shields are flaring Tractor beam’s losing traction Thrusters thrusting Balls are busting Crashing on a gas giant’s moon We’re caught in a time loop Can’t seem to get out Joined a mighty battle group Now we have to come about Lasers blaring Shields are flaring Tractor beam’s losing traction Thrusters thrusting Balls are busting Crashing on a gas giant’s moon An alternate dimension looms Enemies begin their deadly prowl We seem to be heading for our doom In space no one can hear you howl Lasers blaring Shields are flaring Tractor beam’s losing traction Thrusters thrusting Balls are busting Crashing on a gas giant’s moon

I’ve seen the skies Open up for me I’ve heard the wind Howl my name Shells washed up On the shore Writing me words I can’t ignore Took to the road The less traveled one Went round the bend Of time and space Sleeping under a blanket Made of snow Won’t grow cold I’m rolling in dough Her soft voice Was music to my ears Couldn’t take it slow So I took it fast Her deep dark secret And her silken lies I’m heartbroken Left high and dry

The patterns on the wall are obscured, Hidden quite well by the fabled facade The lobby used to be grand But the furnishings have gone south But I shouldn’t worry, oh no Where I am I don’t really know The lady at the front desk, with her beauty gone Smiles at you with yellowed teeth and a sense of calm Takes your credit card and gives you the key: „No smoking allowed in room number fourteen” Well, I’m sitting here, in a thinking mood And I’m looking out the window And all I can see, are the hoi polloi And they are all so fucking simple Shouldn't be so quick to judge All that talk is just double Dutch I’ve done things that the world has never seen And I’ve seen the lord, said take me to the queen I have the world on my shoulders, but damn it Jim I’m getting older And I don’t know if I’ll see the end, the clock is ticking for you my friend --- Tick tock, your time’s up World’s gotta end And the people who know Don’t understand They never do But my mother and my father Were so wise They showed me the light That shines in everybody Shines on through the night Now, it’s been a good run And I’ve tried to spread the word But it meant nothing, nothing, Nobody heard Just let your worries Boil away with the sun --- I'm going home

Lying on the couch about to have a smoke I’ve got a one way ticket to a world of my own It’s own little wonders in an old neighborhood It’s a mirror of my soul The rain outside turns into a note Of the song I’m singing that I never wrote It has no beginning and it never goes It’s a mirror of my soul The lights go on and the lights go off Or maybe my eyes just had enough The shapes I’m seeing are fading away In the mirror of my soul The memory of the day that’s passed Slips from my mind as it always has Like the rain’s that beating on the glass Of the mirror of my soul The steaming train on the old sidetrack Is calling for me so I pick up my bag I don’t know where I’m going but I won’t look back In the mirror of my soul

about

Album Available Now,

NICE, VERY NICE! Wat hebben we uitgekeken naar het moment dat we jullie dit kunnen melden. Dat het debuutalbum van Lucifer’s Playlist, Mirror of my Soul, eindelijk haar glorieuze nullen en enen op een rijtje heeft. Dat moment, beste vrienden, is nu. En ja, we zijn ons er terdege van bewust dat het haast een doodzonde is Mirror of my Soul niet op vinyl uit te brengen. Waarvoor onze welgemeende excuses. Aan de andere kant brengen slechts enkele simpele klikken jou negen bloody awesome songs om jouw auris interna in absolute vervoering te brengen.

Negen nummers die liefhebbers van jaren zeventig blues en rock meenemen op een één uur durende trip down memory lane. Het opbeurende ‘Good Times’, het stevige en energieke ‘Big Space Boogie’, eigentijdse nummers als het funky ‘Put The Heat On’ of ‘Let’s Go Home’ en als toetje het epische, bijna drieëntwintig minuten durende ‘The Suite’.

Arjen Knaap slaat het trommelvlies over en beukt zijn rotsvaste drumbeat rechtstreeks je hoofd in. Kevin de Harde baant zich met zijn stem een weg door je buis van Eustachius. Bram Slinger en Jan Jaap Doeven laten hun orgel en gitaar resoneren in je slakkenhuis, terwijl de bastonen van Dirk van Hoven je schedel sympathisch laat vibreren.

Wij, the founding fathers van Lucifer’s Playlist, laten bij deze met gepaste trots en onbegrensd enthousiasme ons geesteskind los. Download Mirror Of My Soul op Bandcamp en: play it loud, never mind the neighbours.
