Album: Undergod/Underdog
Label/Editora: Poison Tree Records
Lyrics/ Letra: Susana de Noronha
Music/Música: Frederico Cristiano and Márcio Décio
Project/ Artista: Pyroscaphe

 

The lyrics for Pyroscaphe’s debut album “Undergod/Underdog” open a door to the streets of a place where mobsters, killers, beggars and gamblers are the leading actors. Demons, dogs, scarecrows and bottles of wine invert the common order of things and fill a world where even God confronts his own frailties. Each song/lyric tells you one of their stories. Released by the North American label "Poison Tree Records" (Los Angeles), the album is available for download in 23 countries since January 13th [2009]

 

1 - Vertigo Red

I know I won’t get off this chair again
can’t find the will to force my knees to leave
I’ll stay and have a vintage wine
until my legs can reach the door

my veins fill up
with floral notes of sin
a toxic garden floor
where I’ll dance and fall
until my heart fails

my mouth is a dry bottle’s neck
while my guts are soaked in vertigo red
I throw away my guilt
and smell your scent
to feel your taste

I’ll stay and have a glass of wine
until my legs walk out the door

my head fills up
with liquid aching lust
a toxic water weed
that binds my will
until I drown

my mouth is a dry bottle’s neck
and I am too tired to be a virtuous man
I swallow my guilt
and throw up the rest
of my own shame

I try to stand up one more time
but my feet won’t obey for a while
I am falling
I have fallen from grace

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

2 - Devilish Resident

I feel a growing presence
underneath my skin
changing flesh and shadow
from within

I hear him laughing
I hear him scream
acid lies through my teeth

my red little devil
find your way out
your scarlet friendship
poisons my heart

I can feel you
twisting my tongue
with your sour poems,
riddles and songs

we both know
God is too old to believe
he can win back my trust
he still preaches
but he has a weaker voice
while your words
please my soul

my red little devil
find your way out
your scarlet friendship
poisons my heart

I can feel you
twisting my thoughts
with your velvet curtains,
riddles and knots

I’ll spit out your name
my red little devil.

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

3 - The Walking Scarecrow

Will I ever walk the unfinished road
made by the stormy wind?
Will I ever feel the smell of dust
left by the falling rain?

I’m just a rotten pile of straw
my open arms and hands
won’t scare the birds away
at dawn, I like to hear them sing
they speak about the world
and never-ending fields

I know distant lands
though I never left this place
I know all the names of flowers and trees
though I share my seeds with crows

I’m just a rotten pile of straw
my open arms and hands
won’t scare the birds away
at dawn, I’ll put on my hat and leave
they’ll show me all the roads
to the never-ending fields

can they take me there?

Music: Márcio Décio
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

4 - Mobster Outfit

I walk with a pistol on my striped suit
I keep Virgin Mary in my wallet
I’m no common crook
I respect the dead
always bless their souls
before I shoot

I’m a family man
God watches my back
from up above
I’m the head of a gang
of vultures and men
behind His back

I carry my secrets in my suitcase
along with the profit of my last crime
I’m no common crook
I respect the law
any business needs
lawyers and lies

I’m a family man
God watches my back
from up above
I’m the head of a gang
of vultures and men
behind His back

behind the back of God
behind His back

Music: Frederico Cristiano & Márcio Décio
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

5 - Contract Killer

I drive around looking for your face
I’ll stay around until I find your trace
they wrote down your name
on my book of pain
I will put you down
and just turn the page

can I clean my hands with ether?
I’m not getting calm or cleaner

I drive around haunted by your face
you’ll stay around until I lose your trace

can I clean my hands with ether?
I’m not getting calm or cleaner
you’re still around me.

Music: Márcio Décio
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

6 - About Men and Mutts

A black dog is barking
his master calls
he won’t hear his voice tonight
they traded places, rabies for rage,
whistles and bites for knives
the ring was made for humans
dogs will sit and watch the fight
their bones will break and shatter
and the hound dogs will eat as lords

a black dog is barking
applauding his man
a crowd of mutts scratching the head
smelling the mud and the sweat
mixing with blood painted flesh

a black dog is barking
his master died
he just sat and watched the fight
his bones are soft leftovers
in the round bowls of feeding dogs
while the ring is calm and silent
the four legged crowd keeps asking for more

a black dog is barking
applauding his man
a crowd of mutts scratching the head
smelling the mud and the sweat
mixing with blood painted flesh

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

7 - Scavenger Jack

Out on the streets it’s all so quiet
my worn out shoes stroll like rats
the unleashed dog that barks all night
sings our pain and tainted life

I stretch my hand in the cold
you turn your back everyday
I’m just a bag of dirt,
warm spit, blood and hope

If you could find a heart in your ironed coat
then I could have a cent in my pocket’s throat
my hunger grows older and stronger than love

I stretch my hand in the cold
you turn your back everyday
I’m just a bag of dirt,
twenty nails, skin and bone

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

8 - My Confinement

Look at me my perfect love
please ignore all my evil flaws
all I see are closing doors
all I touch are the dirty walls
where my shadow lives
outside my skin there’s no room for me

there’s an armchair with my name back in hell
I’m invited to rest my legs
while a calm current of light, ash and flame
dries the flow inside my veins

please go home now
you can’t hold my hand
I’m on my own
you can’t follow me
there’s no room in hell
just go home now
I can’t take you there

there’s an armchair with my name back in hell
I’m invited to rest my head
while a calm current of light, ash and flame
stops the heart inside my chest

do you see a killer while I sit down
or a king of sorrow on a wired throne?
can you tell me what you see?

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

9 - Undergod

I still hear the words of Mary by the crucified
a wooden cross won’t fit the arm length
of your thousand crimes
watch the signs

His broken hands won’t save this town
He cannot move
He bowed his head and lost his crown
He cannot rule

His wounded skin is far from sacred,
just a feast for flies
watch his mouth

His final words won’t save your souls
God isn’t moved
left to hang, he’s trapped and mute
He cannot choose

His wasted vows won’t save this town
you’ve got to move
turn around and leave this town
you’ve got to move

Music: Márcio Décio
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha

 

10 - Underdog

I bet my life on a poker hand
all the odds were against my plans
the dice fell on the wrong side of fate
my virtues have foolishly fallen
while the vice dragged me for more
I cannot lose my soul again

who can ever trust me?
I’m a devil’s puppet
shuffling decks of darkened hearts

I bet my life on a blackjack hand
all the cards were a palm-sized trap
and the Joker kept laughing at my face
all my chances fell before me
my sweat poured out like venom
can I win back my soul again?

who can ever trust me?
I’m a devil’s puppet
shuffling decks of darkened hearts

one more string of rope
holds my gambler’s hand
all my moves and tricks
tie me to despair
I pull myself away
and end up being caught
at the devil’s table
where fate and cards are marked

unlike a Joker’s smile
luck is just one sided

Music: Frederico Cristiano
Lyrics: Susana de Noronha
