lyrics

Your face, is like a blank canvas.
Your body, is like a mural on the wall.
Eyes gaze, into the iris.
Of the most, beautiful, of them all...

Your face is like a blank canvas, waiting to be painted on.
With a spectrum of colors, splattered along.
Brush strokes, around her cheekbones, her hair grew long.
She always drifts, back to sleep, with the new dawn.
Hand, drawn, portraits....
Of the woman, who has eyes, like the sunset.
Jet black iris, sun kissed lips, coffee cream hair.
I still reminisce, of her, hazy dream stare.

Paint on your skin, and shed your mask, and make-up.
Faint dim light reflects, on your face, when you wake-up.
A stained coffee cup, cigarettes for breakfast.
A full ashtray, and an empty stomach.
She knows, all the thoughts, in your head that linger.
She heard, all the words, you're about to whisper.
She sees your dreams, swallows your desires.
Breaths in the shadows, that crawl inside of her.

She says, “I crave the weight of your body, pressed up against mine”.
Complains, what's played on the radio, poisons her mind.
Wants to paint a different picture, another scenery.
Change the frame, change the name and alter the reality. Because.
For a masterpiece, there’s no rest, there’s no sleep.
The paint drips down and leaks, all the way to her feet.
Knee deep, in all the beauty that she keeps.
I swear I hear you speak, and I can feel your heartbeat (And I see).

Your face, is like a blank canvas.
Your body, is like a mural on the wall.
Eyes gaze, into the iris.
Of the most, beautiful, of them all...

about

l'Algorythme Montreal, Québec

After 8 years L'Algorythme is still here...
Producing a nice collection of sampling-heavy frankenstein- hip-hop mutant-disco beats.
l'Algorythme is like Johnny 5 ( of the movie Short Circuit 2) when he rebuilds himself as a crazy ass punk robot after being attacked by 2 motherfuckers.
