about

Cairo Braga’s new single ‘Thanatos’ is the first chapter of his first album cycle (prefaced by his previous single ‘Nature Boy’).
the song is a personal reflection upon the death drive and how to live with it, or not live at all. it’s backed with a cover of Girls’s ‘Lust For Life’ as an attempt to bring a less fateful perspective to an ill-fated narrative. but does it really succeed in that intention?

this release is part of Netlabel Day 2015, the worldwide independent free music event on July 14th. know more at netlabelday.blogspot.com

Track Name: Thanatos (Single Version)
we think we will live free
running naked up & down the streets
bodies getting pleasure from the lack of bounds
bodies blowing up, bodies stuck underground

we think planting a tree
will make up for the crimes of humanity
forests being loved for the air we breathe
forests burning down, forests out of our reach

we're better off
locked inside
a dark room

we've had enough
life's tide
is gonna end soon

we're better now
trapped inside
our own minds

we write our vow
life's time
will be left behind

I think I'll find paradise
on the arms of a pretty lover in disguise
future looking bright in my wildest dreams
future on a slackline, future busting the seams

I think I will prevail
if I keep all my ideas on the rails
art is the best way to make a living
art is a tormentor, art is unforgiving

I'm better off
locked inside
a dark room

I've had enough
life's tide
is gonna end soon

I'm better now
trapped inside
my own mind

I read my vow
life's time
will be left behind

you think you will find love
on the lost & found section of the club
hearts being stomped by the kick drum sound
hearts so confused, hearts are spinning around

you think you'll conquer life
on a subject matter, on the tip of a knife
brains being crushed by mass media opinion
brains bleeding poison, brains gonna oblivion

you're better off
locked inside
a dark room

you've had enough
life's tide
is gonna end soon

you're better now
trapped inside
your own mind

whisper your vow
go into hide
there's nothing
to leave behind
Track Name: Lust For Life (feat. leitecruz)
oh, I wish I had a boyfriend
I wish I had a loving man in my life
I wish I had a father
maybe then I would've turned out right

but now I'm just crazy, I'm totally mad
yeah, I'm just crazy, been fucked in the head
but maybe if I really try with all of my heart
then I could make a brand new start in love with you

oh, I wish I had a suntan
I wish I had a pizza and a bottle of wine
I wish I had a beach house
then we could make a big fire every night

instead I'm just crazy, I'm totally mad
yeah, I'm just crazy, been fucked in the head
and maybe if I really try with all of my heart
then I could make a brand new start in love with you

c'mon, c'mon, c'mon, hey now
