i know your sorrows but why do you fight the poor? you´re standing here angry with a feeling about to fall one hour until sunrise and the city´s burning bright, you´re standing there wondering, if this way is right you can feel the anger but don’t know how it’s meant to be while fearing the unknown it’s not better to be free one hour until sundown and the house is burning down you´re standing there angry with a feeling about to drown take a nugget and build yourself a goldmine of truth take the truth and build yourself a castle of fear there is no right life in the wrong one you´re blinded by hatred of those you don’t know you´re fighting your sisters that lived years ago you meet yourself early morning to do your own parade to march, to let out anger to sing your songs of hate you think of a better living while you crucify your soul as you do it to your brother like it was your only goal the streets end up in smoke like your mind that is subsided and your visions of a better life end up divided take a nugget and build yourself a goldmine of truth take the truth and build yourself a castle of fear there is no right life in the wrong one

she says goodbye and now you go she had her blue, blue summer pants on she says goodbye like you did ten times before i am sorry, but i just don’t know what i know for sure, yes i know you ought to go. summers heat and summers rust summers mud and summers dust burned her heart and cooled cooled down her mind i am sorry, but i just don’t know what i know for sure, yes i know you ought to go. and when she comes back in my open arms it feels like never been apart i am sorry, but i just don’t know what i know for sure, yes i know you ought to go and i got to go.

you rest here in your gentle life little boy of security the hokey voice shouts ´look at me, i even got a silent wife´ but then there is the day after when nothing appears intimate and your elder friend whispers hard ´grab your feet that’s all you’ve got´ guess you better open your eyes start thinking and stop to admit that all your teachers told you lies so you go along with it but there is nothing on your way neither caught nor in liberty ´i´m floating but it’s up to me´ you rest here in your gentle life little son of the furious the mother´s voice shouts ’stay with me‘ ´then you’ll have a quiet ride´ guess you better open your eyes start thinking and stop to admit that all your teachers told you lies back at home back at school and then, out on the streets they told you lies

Hotel Room 03:50
the first floor is where the landlord lives with his wive and the kids and they always stay in the hotel room in the hotel room on the second floor the housemaid waits and the landlord comes from time to time to see in the hotel room in the hotel room the gluesniffer crawls on the third floor’s ground explores a resurrection that brunhild found in the hotel room in the hotel room on the fourth floor hides the pusherman dragging and rushing through the midnight land in the hotel room in the hotel room in the last apartment on the fifth floor hallway old lady waits for the man to call her in the hotel room in the hotel room 6th floor, 7th floor, 8th floor, nine climbing to the rooftop hoping to find some sight in the hotel room in the hotel room
5.
Cigarettes 04:29
sitting here with another glass while breath outside is freezing and it feels like she´s laying next to him instead he holds a cigarette and a bouquet of ideas he holds an apple, he holds the bread the white men have paid for and he does not know what he is running for instead a slight misgiving hazes through his head who is running who is hiding who is watching what other men have been through he sees his brother come along carries loads of disturbance and knows that all the thousands here came by fishtrucks, land and sea

Road Song 04:12
i heard you lost your, heard you lost your heard you lost your father yesterday car accident, it was a car accident down road chile, down road chile i heard there was a baby child born i heard there was a baby child born six years ago six years ago he won´t do the the same mistake again won´t do the the same mistake again it´s about leaving it´s about leaving and he knows something’s wrong for to show that it’s gone, that it´s gone earn some money, take the airplane earn some money, take the airplane return back again return back again he won´t do the the same mistake again won´t do the the same mistake again it’s about loving it’s about loving and he knows something’s wrong for to show that it’s gone, that it’s gone

Last Year 03:37
we just met about eight years ago she was turning around on a moving floor alright little boy you are so fine come on over and have a nice time so she came to my hometown again we were strolling around and then she missed her last bus though she came on time and had to stay but that was alright right after a neil young concert the boys took the bus and i went nowhere to her three room apartment that was close to that place ended up withe the feelings in haze the silver hinge held me three years more but last month i released me for sure i recognised that the way is too far and keep these memorys in furry jar

Sea 03:01
going out, wondering ´round gonna see, went to dream guess it is not what it seems to be got a mountain´s peak in my back strange thoughts in my neck going down to the river where the track is waiting for me i follow the river i see what it delivers i’m going down to the sea where the big surf is coming in monolith logs are floating whales are moaning waves are rolling and the water pours in me i start to feel now i start to need now i start to sleep now for the sake of some relief i’m back on the beach my blue face bleeds i’m dug in the sand but i’m finally free
9.
Mama 03:51
mama tries to keep her baby warm raper arrives just before dawn and says ´your boy is pretty good looking´ another woman seems to be afraid her son smiles, turns his head and points at the gun in his fingers we prefer some loving but you better get your boots on i got a friend down in nowhere´s land he crawls on his knees again he points at a woman on the kitchen floor he points, shoots, he´s killing mama opens kitchen door finds her family torn apart and leaves the city she was raised in found another place to stay it took months for the way and no one knew where it lead to we prefer some loving but you better get your boots on
10.
and i don´t know my name i mean the blank on my way can´t tell the fortune of fame my mind just wants me to stay i wouldn´t greet this old man sitting behind the black door he says `now step in my van` i wouldn´t tell you much more but. life is visiting when i´m already late life is leaving when it turns out great. now i´m captured by her and then they pine over me there is so much to sober but i´m too gutless to flee right here is the place in my sweet drunken steps moms are covered in haze it´s just the beauty of gaps but. life is visiting when i´m already late life is leaving when it turns out great.

about

FOR YELLOW COLOURED VINYLS PLEASE VISIT THE NASONI WEBSTORE: www.nasoni-records.com/catalogue/new-releases/sirkus_release_the_noise_of_time.html

can time be noise? colourful tones are the whispers and screams of chronology, heard above the noise of time.
trying to understand major and minor circumstances in the present, both private and political, by involving everything they fear and love, sirkus recorded the noise of time.
they twist the djembe with spaced out synth, blues with moroccan gnaua rhythms, creating an earthquake for both mind and soul. feel a mixture of psych, kraut and western african influences combined to form a rolling, yet fragile sound.
