about

Helmet Compass Denmark

ecstasy rock - copenhagen

Management: Kalle Bremer kalle@laika.dk

Helmet Compass sounds like an electronic version of Happy Mondays bathed in countless dance associations. Balearic breakbeats, halogen house pianos, syncopated synth stabs, and two-ton bass is tumbling out of the speakers with an exalting energy unheard of since the golden age of the throb-throb-music in the early nineties.

Track Name: The Bliss of The Bright Colours of The City Lights
I know it will never be the same again
The clouds over, here comes the rain

Miss the long hot summer nights
Miss the love, and the loving bites
The bliss of the bright colours of the city lights

Back when Madonna sang me sweet lullabies
Shame that today your eyes stay dry

Miss the long hot summer nights
Miss the love, and the loving bites
The bliss of the bright colours of the city lights

Do all the colours turn to grey
Will all the sounds fade away

Miss the long hot summer nights
Miss the love, and the loving bites
The bliss of the bright colours of the city lights
Track Name: Happy Air
Got some gallons of cream to whip
Got a glove and a blueing lip
I am the captain of this airship
Thirty seconds and that's about it

Oh the sweet compound
Anaesthetic rocket fuel
One more time around
Remove another wisdom's tooth

Got a phaser inside my ear
One Balloon and i'm out of here
Two cannisters of happy air
Crack it up, happy birthday my dear

Oh the sweet compound
Anaesthetic rocket fuel
One more time around
Remove another wisdom's tooth
Track Name: Dimitri and I
Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare

Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare

Let's sit down, get to know each other
You smell kind of bad, but it's no bother
You're like and old friend, I've never met before
The times we spend, looking at the floor

Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare

Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare

Never felt so alone, as i did with you
Yet I've never been so amazed with something so untrue
I start to question everything you do
But the sky has never been so blue

Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare

Dimitri and I, we dont care
Dimitri and I, we sit and stare
Track Name: Schrödingers Cat
Careful as you grow up
Clearly marking your spot
Someone is claiming the lot
Teach you how to please the lot

Well... Hello
Makes me feel like Schrödingers Cat for so long

Shoulders, knuckles my son.
This life has just begun
Stay close, don't you go long
Someone is gonna have your fun

Well... Hello
Makes me feel like Schrödingers Cat for so long
Track Name: He Will Hurt You
it hurts me so to catch your eye
reminds me of when we were high
when love was only you and i
and not just down to “hi”, “goodbye”

now and then you pass me by
talking to another guy
and i try to catch your eye
and tell you that he’ll only lie

he will hurt you
don’t believe what he says
he will hurt you
don’t believe what he says
he will hurt you
don’t believe what he says
he will hurt you
don’t believe what he says
Track Name: Fuck It
you say i’m a loser
‘cause i won’t cut my hair
you say i’m a loser
but i just don’t care
you say i’m loser
‘cause i don’t have a job
you say i’m a loser
and you make me throw up

oh. fuck it. oh. fuck it. oh.

so it’s a three chord song
so you think it’s dumb
and we’re doing it wrong
‘cause we’re just having fun
you can suck my dick ‘till i come
‘cause i walk, talk and look like a bum

oh. fuck it. oh. fuck it. oh.

so you think i’m a loser
‘cause i don’t have any money
‘still you’ll see this face
callin’ your girlfriend honey
fuck your grey suited world
my world is sunny

‘cause i say fuck it. oh fuck it. oh

my world is sunny
even though my make-up is runny

Track Name: Mirror Mirror
like the tower in paris
yeah you know i’m high

like the tower of london
yeah you know i’m deep

like the tower of pisa
yeah you know i lean

like the towers of n.y
yeah you know i’m gone

he e e ey

mirror mirror on the wall
who’s the greatest of them all

he e e ey

mirror mirror on the floor
one ring to rule them all
Track Name: Carry The World
i’ll give my life to make it fine
to make it rhyme
i’ll lose my mind to keep you mine
to give you time
no need to fight
it’ll be alright
as long as i

carry the world upon my shoulder
carry the world upon my shoulder

i’ll be your friend, your pin cusion
i’ll make no stand
don’t be content with one finger
take off my hand
so wise and old
prepared to fold
you know that i

carry the world upon my shoulder
carry the world upon my shoulder
credits
Track Name: My Hero
here’s not a lot
to look forward to
there are not a lot
to look up to

you opened up my eyes
so i could see
oh my hero have you forsaken me?

there’s not a lot
to look forward to
and there are not a lot
to look up to

oh

you opened up my eyes
so i could see
oh my hero have you forsaken me?

there’s not a lot
to look forward to
there are not a lot
to look up to

oh

you opened up my eyes
so i could see
oh my hero have you forsaken me?
Track Name: Another Lost Generation
haven’t you heard
what they say
we’re just another lost generation

it makes more sense
to drugs
and sleep all day

than to get a job
that doesn’t pay

guess i don’t really care though
anyway

it get’s lonely here tonight
lonely here tonight
unless you pay
unless you pay
