Dire Straits - Private Investigation

Its a mystery to me
The game commences
For the usual fee
Plus expenses
Confidential information
Its in a diary
This is my investigation
Its not a public inquiry

I go checking out the report
Digging up the dirt
You get to meet all sorts
In the line of work
Treachery and treason
Theres always an excuse for it
And when I find the reason
I still cant get used to it

And what have you got at the end of the day ?
What have you got to take away ?
A bottle of whisky and a new set of lies
Blinds on the window and a pain behind the eyes

Scarred for life
No compensation
Private investigations

The Call of Ktulu - Metallica

One of the the most instrumentals I ever enjoyed. The idea of the song "The Call Of Ktulu" is based upon H.P. Lovecraft's sole book "The Shadow over Innsmouth" which was first introduced to the rest of the band by Cliff Burton. The spark of beeing fascinated by the book began quickly spreading over the rest of the band. The song's name was taken from one of H.P. Lovecraft's main story featuring Cthulhu "The Call of Cthulhu" which has been written in 1928 for the magazine "Weird Tales". The name "Ktulu" is originally written "Cthulhu" by H.P. Lovecraft.

World Citizen- I Won’t Be Disappointed

A song with powerfull words and alot of meanings and simple music it is performed by Ryuichi Sakamoto and David Sylvian. It was a soundtrack in the movie Bable
What happened here?
The butterfly has lost its wings
The air’s too thick to breathe
And there’s something in the drinking water.
The sun comes up
The sun comes up and you’re alone
Your sense of purpose come undone
The traffic tails back to the maze on 101
And the news from the sky
Is looking better for today
In every single wayBut not for you
World citizen
World citizen
It’s not safe
All the yellow birds are sleeping
Cos the air’s not fit for breathing
It’s not safe
Why can’t we be
Without beginning, without end?
Why can’t we be?
World citizen
World citizen
And if I stop
And talk with you awhile
I’m overwhelmed by the scale
Of everything you feel
The lonely inner state emergency
I want to feel
Until my heart can take no more
And there’s nothing in this world I wouldn’t give
I want to break
The indifference of the days
I want a conscience that will keep me wide awake
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be.
I saw a face
It was a face I didn’t know
Her sadness told me everything about my own
Can’t let it be
When least expected there she is
Gone the time and space that separates us
And I’m not safeI think I need a second skin
No, I’m not safe
World citizen
World citizen
I want to travel by night
Across the steppes and over seas
I want to understand the cost
Of everything that’s lost
I want to pronounce all their names correctly
World citizen
World citizen
I won’t be disappointed
I won’t be.
She doesn’t laugh
We’ve gone from comedy to commerce
And she doesn’t feel the ground she walks upon
I turn away
And I’m not sleeping well at night
And while I know this isn’t right
What can you do?

يا شمس غيبى يا مراكب حلى

happy sun

يا شمس غيبى يا مراكب حلى

الموج بيجرى و أنا لسه محلى
يا شمس غيبى يا مراكب حلى
الموج بيجرى و أنا لسه محلى

زغلول يا لولى
امتى تطول طولى
تعرف تقول قولى و تعلم اللى جاى
و تعلم اللى جااى
يا شمس غيبى يا مراكب
الموج بيجرى و أنا لسه محلى
آه يا زمن ياللى شبك مالوش ضلى
زغلولى زغللنى ضلل عليا الضل
ضلل عليا الضل
تعرف تقول قولى و تعلم اللى جاى
و تعلم اللى جااى
يا شمس غيبى
منير و صباح منيرياوى بيضحك
