You and your ways are lonely come out and set me free if you don't start to tremble like a ghost you'll never see the best of me Don't start to think too far ahead stop there and answer me where were you back in 1925 when Pickwick Club collapsed on me You and your ways are funny come out and treat me right if you don't start to tremble like a ghost you'll never see the end of time Don't start to think too far ahead stop there and answer me where have you been since 1944 when Lili put the soldiers to sleep (solo) You and your ways are lonely come out and set me free if you don't start to tremble like a ghost you'll never see the end of me Don't start to think too far ahead stop there and answer me where were you back in 1965 when Seeger tried to cut a tree You and your ways are funny come out and treat me right if you don't start to tremble like a ghost you'll never see the end of time Don't start to think too far ahead stop there and answer me where have you been since 1984 an age we are still living in.

On piilossa viidakon Suojassa temppelin raunion Valtakunta viimeinen Silmälasikäärmeiden Vain viidakko tuntee sen Illan tullen tanssimaan Kobrat saapuu piiloistaan Raunioilla kimaltelee kuu Kobra vanhin valkoinen Nousee pystyyn huojuen Viidakosta soitto kantautuu Niin piilossa viidakon Marmoripaasilla raunion Alkaa tanssi hiljainen Silmälasikäärmeiden Vain viidakko kuulee sen (solo) Kun kruununsa kultaisen Kobrista vanhin, jo valkoinen Kuuta kohti kohottaa Uuden loisteen paadet saa On aika nyt tullut sen Vartijana aarteiden Kobra vanha, valkoinen Nähnyt on myös loiston palatsin Mutta voimat viidankon Voittaneet jo kiven on Murenee jo pinta marmorin On kobrien kuninkaan Aika nyt luopua kruunustaan Kobra vanha valkoinen Tanssii kauas kadoten Niin viidakko peittää sen Niin viidakko peittää sen

You used to be Stevie Wonder (2x) I was the meta vox I pushed and pulled you through, hard times in rising costs You used to be Gene Vincent (2x) I was the echo machine Tape delay, sweetheart We vibrated rock n'roll dreams (solo) You used to be hot kisses (2x) I was just burning blood I'll always remember you darkly and salty and good You used to be Stevie Wonder (3x) something about the way you looked at me You used to be Stevie Wonder

O meu caixão de vidro tem um teto desigual vibra sempre que lembro o horário fatal Quando comi a maçã eram 3 da tarde A noite chegou e eu fiquei imobilizada aqui congelada. Este gelo que me arrefece podia servir para um cocktail barato. Onde é que ele anda esse príncipe a cavalo se ele se atrasar muito nunca vou entrecruzá-lo Fico aqui a dormir para toda a eternidade os anões vão chorar e eu vou sonhar a olhar o céu estrelado através do vidro do meu caixão como um paradoxo de Zenão.

Ectoplasma 02:50
Quando tínhamos os dentes claros e passámos a noite em claro em clara contradição Vimos uma substância branca a sair de um corpo estranho em materialização Era uma mistura de fluidos procedentes de outros planos de tempos vitorianos em crises paranormais. (solo) No outro lado do hemisfério havia um grande mistério de causas sobrenaturais Viu-se uma substância branca a sair de seres humanos, vegetais e animais Toda a matéria esbranquiçada foi sendo cristalizada e nasceu um ritual Dizem que nasceu a nova Era do grande Ectoplasma que veio salvar a Terra e que dava sorte e espantava a morte e causou um arraial.

Amore 002 02:16
I was born out of an algorithm (algorithm) I'm a function in your system and I'm here to love I'm Amore 002 (turututututu x 3) I'm a product of artificial intelligence I will love you with sophisticated maths type what you want shop on the web tell your desires and I will meet you there and then report you to my superiors She was born out of an algorithm and she's got lots of rhythm and I'm here to love I'm Amore 002 (tutututututu x 3) My identity was given to me on a student card from a London university an Algorithm is unambiguous it never fails, it's set to win I will uncover your darkest secrets through face recognition automatic reasoning this is my mission I'm Amore 002

We're going out tonight it will make you feel alright I wrote a stupid song to show you right from wrong It's about the simplification of our human nature choose an old technology combined with myths, big dreams and failures It's alright to forget what is right And all the times I've lost control and tapped into my sorrows that's what made me change inside and find a shortcut for tomorrow We arrived in the inside of the outside of our minds. Go

Revelation 02:58
I've closed my eyes to look for something else a tangible world of nothingness Reveal yourself to me The darkness hides a secret key to infinity. I can't distinguish the colours of my dreams nor tell the difference between day and night The doctor says My vision's fine but my heart says I'm colour blind. I'm getting high with sunlight on my face His vitamin helps me to embrace A world of mistery while the earth turns blue and I find you. (solo) I died right after our story ended And no one turned the page after my sleep I'm stuck with gravity Release the pain of rushing in with no clarity. Now I'm standing still while everything's moving I guess it means it's all an illusion Therefore we don't exist Unless you see me and hear my wish.

Sardine 03:44
How far can I still go when everything is still it seems the past is here a time warp told me so You're acting like a star who drinks and sings and shines but no one knows what's next the future's just a concept (solo) There used to be a time when things were falling free without any resistance dancing with the wind Was I only dreaming you turned into a fish and then you swam away before I ate you grilled Like a Portuguese sardine with a jug of green wine and coffee For 5 euros There's no heroes

Pussycat 03:29
指折数えて あなたをまったら 10本の指じゃ  足りないとこまでくる このころ   いくつも 約束 重ねる だけなら あしたは違う だれかの 場面で キス 年上の あなたには わからない  平和な 夢だけじゃ つまんない みつかりそうで 見つからない ような危ない 夜をこえて CUTIE PUSSYCAT  私 悪い子なのよ 退屈 させないで CUTIE PUSSYCAT あなたの 白い背中に  爪を たてるわ 元気ないから 真昼にlove call 戸惑う あなたは 不機嫌な 手口を かえした 聞き耳立ててる マダムが見えるわ すれすれのところで、困らせたくなるの 誰にも内緒に してあげる そんなに 子供じゃないから 三つ目のボタンを はずしたら 綺麗な 嘘を ついて CUTIE PUSSYCAT  私 悪い子なのよ 退屈 させないで CUTIE PUSSYCAT あなたの 白い背中に  爪を たてるわ CUTIE PUSSYCAT  私 悪い子なのよ 退屈 させないで CUTIE PUSSYCAT あなたの 白い背中に  爪を たてるわ CUTIE PUSSYCAT CUTIE PUSSYCAT CUTIE PUSSYCAT CUTIE PUSSYCAT CUTIE PUSSYCAT

Drown 01:58
I drown each night never losing sight slipping through a wormhole. The multiverse might just be wide enough to hold infinite shows. How large is life is there a knife to cut through reality. In the astral world I search for gold and find a rainbow within.

"Deparamo-nos com uma viagem em que o tempo se distorce realmente: reconhecem-se pedaços de soul em electrónica analógica, evoca-se o minimalismo pós-punk dos Young Marble Giants, atiram-se os Suicide para um cabaret imaginado em cenário de ficção científica, criam-se baladas melancólicas com recurso a ukulele e a caixas de ritmo dos anos 1960 e 1970." (Mário Lopes, Ípsilon)

“Cantora de muitas línguas, tocadora de muitos instrumentos, uma viajante no mundo e no tempo. Tem uma voz que parece vir de tempos longínquos e o dom da imaginação para contar histórias de fantasia e surrealismo. (…) Os instrumentos, nas suas distorções e saturações, rangem com a ferrugem do passado e o desejo do futuro. A voz é um carrossel de carácter e carisma, exalando charme e luxuriando no perfume da melancolia.” (Ana Patrícia Silva, Time Out Portugal)

“Strange songs that take in influences from the 1920s sometimes played on the uke but with tick tock drum machine and sometimes Silver Apples like synth backing, the songs are beautifully written and performed with Rita’s unique style and panache taking in many varied musical influences and moulding them into her own beautiful eccentric shapes.” (Monolith Cocktail)

"Braga is so, so out of time, but given how dismal the present time is, to be able to immerse oneself in something so wonderfully detached is a rare and special treat." (Christopher Nosnibor, Whisperin' and Hollerin')

"There are traces of Balkan folk, post-punk electronica and significant servings of 20s/30s jazz. And all that adds up to quite a rich combination. Humour is never far below the surface and the album is challenging and highly entertaining in almost equal measures." (John Barlass, At The Barrier)
