Absynthe Minded-Envoi

I had to dust off my favorite playlist on YouTube so I can refresh it with new tunes, when this happened! I rediscovered Absynthe Minded, they are better than ever! I like to post new songs here, but this band reminded me that I should appreciate equally the old tracks I loved once in the past! "Envoi" is a sweet and uplifting song to start your Thursday morning. And as long as we are having Throwback Thursdays in social media, I am going to post this oldie with all my love. Pay attention my Belgian friends...this is for you! Absynthe Minded used to be one man band but soon enough they became five. They create nice funky, jazz indie rock music with cool lyrics. "Envoi" describes how a song changes as long as you leave it unreleased! You have to let it go and free yourself from the words that tie you to the feelings of the song. Absynthe Minded are from Belgium! Enjoy their music here.  facebook.com/lyricsonmywall


Absynthe Minded-Envoi

My verses stand gawping a bit
I never get used to this
They lived here long enough
Enough!
I send them out of the house
I don’t wanna wait
Until their toes are cold
Enough!
I wanna hear the humming of the sun
Or that of my heart,
Hardening
Enough!
They don’t screw classically
They babble commonly
And bluster nobly
Enough! Enough!
In winter their lips leap
In spring they lie flat at the first warmth
They ruin my summer
And in autumn it’s girls and a broken heart

For another twelve lines on this sheet
I’ll hold my hand over their head
And then I’ll kick them out
Enough!
Go and pester elsewhere, one-cent rhymes
Find somebody who cares
Enough!
Go now on your high feet
This is where the graves laugh
When they see their guests
Enough!
One corpse on top of the other
Go now and stagger to her
Whom I do not know
Enough! Enough!
In winter their lips leap
In spring they lie flat at the first warmth
They ruin my summer
And in autumn it’s girls and a broken heart
