Sail The Sea (free) 06:43
You can take your words back You can take your love back You can see the sea down You can sail it now The only thing you can't do You can't take me down With your Love With your words You can reach the moon You can sail the sea You can take your words back You can take your love away You can't take me down I like staying with my Uncle Dave And I like playing with his great dane But I don't fit I feel alien and strange Kinda outta range I like riding in my Uncle's car Down to the beach where the pretty girls all parade And movie stars and paparazzi play The Charles Atlas kicking sand in the face game

Step On (free) 03:25
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man You're twistin' my melon man Gonna stamp out of fire, he can change your desire Hey rainmaker, come away from that man You know he's gonna take away your promised land Hey good lady he just wants what you got you know He'll never stop until he's taken the lot (Hey Hey he hey hey) Gonna stamp out of fire, he can change your desire

Spring (free) 03:20
Little lamb, Here I am; Come and lick My white neck; Let me pull Your soft wool; Let me kiss Your soft face; Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year. Sound the flute! Now it’s mute. Birds delight Day and night; Nightingale In the dale, Lark in sky, Merrily, Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year. Little boy, Full of joy; Little girl, Sweet and small; Cock does crow, So do you; Merry voice, Infant noise, Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.

Mother Will Call (free) 03:24
So hello and take my fear and I'll throw it away With the slowly sea and the falling rain Suddenly the window will open and Mother will call it's time to go The wall will part I will enter heaven in muddy shoes I will come to the table and answer questions rudely I am all right leave me alone. Head in hand I sit and sit. flies buzz Father dozes

Safe From Harm (free) 05:24
You can free the world, you can free my mind Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight You can free the world, you can free my mind Midnight rockers, city slickers Gunmen and me yeah On a feature on the freak show And I can't do nothing 'bout that, no no But if you hurt what's mine I'll sure as hell retaliate I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin' back at me To see me lookin' back at you Lucky deepest, crazy chances seems to be moving fast What happened to the niceties of my childhood days Well I can't do nothing 'bout that You can free the world, you can free my mind Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight You can free the world, you can free my mind

What If (free) 02:55
Last night, while I lay thinking here, some Whatifs crawled inside my ear and pranced and partied all night long and sang their same old Whatif song: Whatif I'm dumb in school? Whatif they've closed the swimming pool? Whatif I get beat up? Whatif there's poison in my cup? Whatif I start to cry? Whatif I get sick and die? Whatif I flunk that test? Whatif green hair grows on my chest? Whatif nobody likes me? Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me? Whatif I don't grow talle? Whatif my head starts getting smaller? Whatif the fish won't bite? Whatif the wind tears up my kite? Whatif they start a war? Whatif my parents get divorced? Whatif the bus is late? Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight? Whatif I tear my pants? Whatif I never learn to dance? Everything seems well, and then the nighttime Whatifs strike again!

Red Orchid (free) 03:34
Red Orchid like the sun Always stands alone Red Orchid like an orphan Waiting for someone I can take you down But I won't I can bring you a star But I won't So the red one It's your faith It's your race Take a chance Red Orchid brings you fire Red Orchid brings the warmth Red Orchid like the sun Waiting for the dawn She smells like an angel She looks like a gold Red Orchid will kill you She will take your life So the red one It's your faith It's your race Take a chance

about

О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня "What If?" в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.
