Lyrics
YESTERDAY'S DICE
By┬ęBernardo Barreto

Alone at night
Rolling yesterday's dice.

The sounds are tears
As I wander between the air of water pipes
And the blind bodies of my cats.

I search for a woman so divine
Without pain or past
A woman of neon
A woman of thorn and sky.

As I keep rolling
Yesterday's dice.

(solo)

I sink under the sheets
The heat fills me up in the night
Of the first year of the century

As I keep rolling in my mind
Yesterday's dice.

I watch the moon and the skies
And I hear the sounds of a distant TV
The cats are sleeping.

Children songs announce is time to fly
Sleep and fly
Drawn into the ocean of a brand new night.

An dream about
Rolling yesterday's dice.

Most unique
This is very spacey-cool. Good modern psychedelic tune. Vocal was extremely odd and absolutely perfect for this hypnotic tune. Lyrics are very, very interesting.

Yeah!
Great song Barretok. Love the guitar that comes in and out - for some reason reminds me of Robbie Robertson. Such a clean sounding production too. Nice work!
All the best,
Doug

enjoyed it very much, shades of Captain Beefheart. Nice to see a familiar face as well, don't feel so homesick now.

Familiar faces
Familiar faces are always good, they help you feel at home. On the other hand all the new faces, words and feedback have given me a new perspective. Thank you both.
