WHERE’S YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR NOW?
 WHERE’S YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR NOW? 
WHERE’S YOUR LORD AND SAVIOUR NOW THE WHOLE WORLD IS ON ITS KNEES? 
I WANNA FEEL IT. 
THE END IS CLOSER
 AND I WANNA SCREW IT, 
GO UP IN FLAMES / RAIN FIRE TO THE TREES
 DOWN IN A DAZE / ARE YOU GONNA FLEE, BROTHER?
 COME BEFORE ME / BOW BEFORE ME
. FEEL THE STING IN YOUR KNEES
I AM A BEAST / MAJESTIC ANIMAL. 
I’M CLOSING IN A FORGOTTEN SPIRAL
 AND NOW FINALLY 
ALL FINELY TUNED / EVERYTHING RUINED 
 ALL FINELY TUNED / STANDING IN RUINS
 AROUND ME YOU ARE WATCHING 
WHY SO BLUE? 
AND SO WE’RE OFF / DEPART 
IT’S TAKING OFF IN A BIG BIG SPIN 
RELEASE THE ANCHORS BUT BE WARNED 
FOR I AM RUNNING A TIGHT SHIP 
TIGHT AS A DRUM
. THE TRIP WILL SOON BEGIN, YOU SEE
 GO RIGHT ON / GET IN, 
EVERYBODY JUMPS IN
 SENDS SHIVERS DOWN MY AGING SKIN 
YOU’RE STARTING / RESTARTING LOW
 SCRAPE AT THE BOTTOM
PRESS LIPS AGAINST THE HAND THAT FEEDS 
FOLLOW THE SUIT THAT LEADS
 FOLLOW THE SUIT THAT LEADS
 THIS IS THE END OF WORLD ANNOUNCEMENTS
 THROUGH BLACK SCREENS AND THROUGH TV ANCHORMEN
. AFTER THE BOMB WENT OFF HALF A GLOBE AWAY 
I HARDLY BLINKED, BROTHER 
AFTER THE BOMB WENT OFF TWO BLOCKS AWAY 
I HARDLY FLINCHED, BROTHER 
AFTER THE BOMB WENT OFF INSIDE MY WEARY BRAIN 
YOU HARDLY FELT IT

I TRAVEL THE WORLD, THROUGH RIVERS AND FJORDS, MOUNTAINS AND HILLS, TO FILL A VOID AND FULFILL, MY MIND WONDERS OFF TO A VAGUE MEMORY, FEELINGS ELEMENTARY, FROM WHICH EVER EXTREMITY, WE RAN DEEP & LIKE THE SENTIMENT WE KEEP, IN THE GRAND SCHEME OF TIME WE ARE NOTHING BUT A BLIP I FELL STEEP & KEPT ROLLING DOWN DIZZY OVERWHELMED BY YOUR GAZE & WENT ON TO GET BUSY. MIND YOU! MAY I REMIND YOU, LOVE IS LIKE A GAME OF CHESS, YOUR NEXT MOVE WILL DEFINE YOU TRUTH FORM THE HEART, UPFRONT NEVER BEHIND YOU HOLD YOU IN MY ARMS, LET ME REFINE YOU AS YOU TO I, CAUSE REEL FEELINGS NEVER DIE, STOP LOOKING FOR A REASON TO EXPLAIN OR JUSTIFY, ON WHAT WE FOUND, BUILD A FOUNDATION FORM THE GROUND UP, EACH AND EVERY MORNING SHARING FROM THE SAME CUP. I KEEP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES, LONELY FACES, ALL AROUND FROM ALL RACES, TAKE TEN PACES, AIM YOUR ARROW AND SHOOT LIKE CUPID FOR PASSION ON ALL BASES, ADORATION FILLS MY SOUL WITH IMAGINATION, FROM WHERE WE ARE TO OUR NEXT DESTINATION, FEEL THE BURNING SENSATION, FOR WHEN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES SHORTY, I GET INSPIRATION, THIS IS A STORY WITH CHAPTERS YET UNWRITTEN, YOUR LOVE IS A DISEASE AND I’M BITTEN, HIDDEN FORM YOUR GAZE TOO LONG FROM NOW ON, I KNOW WHERE I BELONG, YOUR LOVE PRISON, LOCK ME UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY, SO WE CAN BE TOGETHER AIN’T NO I IN WE, I CAN ONLY SAY AND GUARANTEE, ITS STRONGER WHEN ITS YOU AND ME AND THATS REAL. KEEP LOOKING FOR LOVE IN ALL THE WRONG PLACES.

UN GRAIN DE SABLE DANS TON DÉSERT
 UNE GOUTTE D’EAU DANS TA RIVIÈRE
 JE SUIS PARÉE, QUOI QU’IL ARRIVE
 LETTRE MORTE DANS TES PAGES BLANCHES 
TU ES SOLEIL BRILLIANT ET MOI LE SEUL NUAGE A UNE IMAGE QUI SE FUIT UNE MAL NOUVELLE APRÈS TON ÉVEIL
 À LA NUIT TOMBÉE, UNE FOIS ENCORE TROMPÉE MAIS SI ÇA COMPTE POUR LE JEU, JE SUIS PARÉE. JE SUIS PARÉE, QUOI QU'IL ARRIVE.
 A LA NUIT TOMBÉE QUI ME REND BLESSÉE
 AVEC LA PALE DE NOS BAISERS
 LA COULEUR DE LA FUITE EST CLAIRE, 
LE DIABLE SE TROUVE CACHÉ 
A LA LUNE QUI PORTE LA MARÉE - BIEN JOUÉ MAIS SI TU PENSE QUE TU M' AS BIEN TRAITÉ DANSE LE FEU QUE TU M’ AS LÂCHÉ
 JUSQU’AU FIN, ET DEPUIS JE M’ EN VAIS
 UNE FLEUR UNIQUE QUI GARDE SON AMOUR
 SUR UNE PLANÈTE ISOLÉE TOUJOURS
 MON PETIT PRINCE, TELLEMENT CRAQUÉ
 UN AVENIR QUI VOLE AU VENT
 COMME FEUILLES MORTES LES JOURS D’ AUTUMN JE SUIS PARÉE ET JE PARS
 UNE PIERRE QUI ROULE SANS RETOUR 
NI DÉTOUR, TELLES CARTES QUE JOURS 
JE DIS ÇA, JE DIS RIEN
 ET JE PARS 
...JUSQU’AU FIN, ET DEPUIS JE M’ EN VAIS SI ÇA COMPTE POUR LE JEU, JE T’ AIMAIS

ONCE IN A LIFETIME
 ONCE IN THIS SHORT TIME
 ONCE YOU CAN
 FIND THE ONE ONCE IN A LIFETIME
 ONLY ONCE IN THIS WHOLE DESIGN
 YOU’LL FIND THE ONE FIND THE ONE TO HEAVEN SOMETIMES IT’S HARD TO STAND
 STAND THROUGH ALL OF THIS MESS SINCE I HAVE LOST THE ONE
 SINCE I FELT SO UNDONE
 NOTHING IS THERE
 TO KEEP ME ON KEEP ME ON TRYIN’
 KEEP ME ON HOPIN’
 TELL ME NOW WHERE
 DO I BELONG

about

Cayetano’s «Melanie» is a fiction character, starring in an imaginary film. The sound refers to the 70’s progressive rock days and it was produced on an analog 70’s concept. This project is a combination of live percussion, voices, orchestral instruments and sounds recorded in China, Maldives, Greece, Romania and U.S.

In total, 26 people contributed to the making of «Melanie», the most ambitious, authentic, and artistic album ever produced by Cayetano.

The story:
1975. There is this ancient tale about love, but not just any love…True Love, love that can only be found at the edges of this Earth. The legend has it this tale was the last thing He whispered in her ears. Mesmerised, Melanie set out to find Him again. Undeterred by warnings, cautions and pleas from voices unseen, she ploughed on regardless. Through winding rivers and dark forests, on top of snowy mountains and amidst desert valleys, Melanie finally reached The End. Standing above the Edge, she looked in daze; there was nothing to be found. Mute in despair, she jumped inside a void of emotions. «It must be here», her voice echoed as she kept falling deeper and deeper in His True Love…

The album contains a .pdf file with lyrics, credits and poster. :)
