lyrics

Red red red is the sky above the harbour,
I have a dream of sailors and a lady just barely dressed
I have a dream that tastes like oxidized metal
and red wine
and smells of seaweed and sweat.
Corroded iron in my mouth and a rock between my legs
as we get to know each getting drunk in bars
and a minute just before they take us oh, back home
I can hear the lady blonder than an angel singing

la la la la la la la la...

Red, red, red is the sky above the harbour
while the sailors kiss us, the sailors undress us,
they sailors take us far away,
they show us an ocean deep and wide,
they sail us to the end of the world
and did you know the world is not really round at all?
In fact we reached the part where it pours
down down down
into the Universe and we took a glimpse of the abyss
and the minute just before
I let myself fall and die in pleasure
I can hear a lady blonder than an angel singing

la la la la la la la la...

Red, red, red was the sky above the harbour,
now it's black, lit by a killing moon.
The sailors slap us, the sailors beat us!
Blood, sweat, tears and cum, they make me fuck you
my dear lady,
strangely I like it so I keep my hard-on
while one of them is giving me hard time from behind,
the sheets are manic waves
and these men´s bodies Leviathans
but you, like a siren, you can tame the monsters
my dear lady blonder than an angel singing

la la la la la la la la...

Blue, blue, blue now is the sky above the harbour.
I open my eyes but I still can feel my beautiful sailors
with thighs stronger than mine
and arms stronger than mine.
They could suffocate me in a deadly hug but no,
this did not happen to me but a friend came by to see me
he had a blackened eye and he could hardly walk
and sported a wining smile upon his face,
and as the day unfolds I can't wait for the night to come
so I can go to sleep and dream
my sailors and my lady singing

lalalalalalalala, lalalalalalalala
just take me to the end of the world,
just take me to the end of the world
and did you know?
The world is not really round,
the world is not really round at all,
the world is not really round at all!

Red, red, red is the sky above the harbour.

about

Evripidis and his Tragedies Barcelona, Spain

Evripidis and His Tragedies is Evripidis Sabatis. The "Tragedies" are the devastating, confessional, self-sarcastic, darkly humorous songs that draw on his classical piano training, queer sensibility and storytelling skills to examine and own up to the vicissitudes of life. Evripidis' pop inclinations take us for a bumpy, dancey ride across the fine line between tragedy and joie de vivre. ... more
