about

SILLYBOY Αθήνα, Greece

Sillyboy lives in a old detached house, above railway network, in a working-class suburb of Athens. This railway peculiarity is the trademark of his home studio, a peculiarity that one could easily find in many aspects of Sillyboy. From urban music and temperamental lyrics, to bass grooves and rhythmic vintage-pop orchestrations. ... more

Track Name: Name your God
NAME YOUR GOD

The only thing that bothers me
is that you never shine when we're in need
of a friendly voice a power to steal
and you always run away

And while we try to keep our faith
you go and hide yourself in endless hate
the distance is bigger day by day
and you blame it all on me

You could be the one...
I want you to be the one...

They fight they die they have no eyes
to see the brighter days are in disguise
and though you promised love you're full of lies
my heart is full of guilt

You hide the faces of your girls
you let your children die on your commands
the times I've spend dividing grace
it all comes back to me

I could be the one...
I want you to be the one...
Track Name: Coast to Coast
COAST TO COAST

This time I'll get it right
I'll pack my things
I'm driving coast to coast
and I'm not looking back
all those faces in my life
and if you wonder why
a single place
is not enough for me
you'll break the spell one day
out of boundaries

No room for second thoughts
no regrets you're stepping out tonight
and you're not looking back
all those places in your life
now you'll get it right
pack your things
we're driving coast to coast
and we're not looking back
out of boundaries
Track Name: Selling Plenty
SELLING PLENTY

Tile up all my good staff
giving it free of charge though I know that
no one will ever notice
I'm putting a price I'm afraid

For years my bench is full off
feelings in bottles ready to go off
light up all my fuse dear
and blow up this market for good

I'm selling plenty
Only for those who buy authentic

Now there's no one around here
stay close to me and I'll put my heart near
walk away from the big fuzz
stepping our feet in the Nile

So this is your new name
I gave it to you you gave me the same
no one will ever notice
blow up this market for good

I'm selling plenty
Only for those who buy authentic
Track Name: All the Records
ALL THE RECORDS

There'll be a time when you'll hear
all the records you made
your thoughts will run wild
deep in your haze

Even then you'll see that things
could be done otherwise
for you where the one
all in disguise

You should start and think about
all the people you've touched
the ones that where true
but it didn't last

Don't you know that they love you

There'll be a time when you'll hear
all the records you made
your thoughts will run wild
deep in your haze

But even then you'll see that things
could be done otherwise
for you where the one

You should start and think about
all the people you've touched
the ones that where true
but it didn't last

Don't you know that they love you
Track Name: Nature Of Things
NATURE OF THINGS

Let's go for a drink and let's stay for a while
and then we have another one and take time out of time
i will get you drunk but not more than my self
cause there's a plan in my head I need to drive you to bed

Let's take an all night walk and have a dizzy talk
I wanna make my move right on the next block
it couldn't get any better I think the time is right
but there's a pleasant surprise your lips will sing tonight

And we take it and take it for hours
only to find that she's into girls
and we take it and take it for days
only to find that she's into girls

Creeping through your walls
love is like a ghost

Now I'm into your room I find my way to your bed
you take off my blouse I take a sniff of your neck
you see I'm always to close but not enough for a kiss
and there goes another night than I'm gonna miss

love is like a ghost
Creeping through your walls
love is like a ghost

Sometimes the nature of things might get in your way
and then you'll find that there are plenty good reasons to stay
but when you come to think about it I'm not to blame
cause there's only one thing that we have the same

That we're crazy crazy for girls
like your self and nobody else
That we're crazy crazy for girls
like your self and nobody else

love is like a ghost
Creeping through your walls
Track Name: Got Your Numbers
GOT YOUR NUMBERS

White skin blue eyes
you call my name and I feel nice
with your old car and short skirt
you left no room for me to think twice

You pick words in the air
and then pretend that you don't care
you find excuses to stay up late
stuck in a house is what you hate

You got your numbers baby
who will love you more than me

Your parents want to see you married
but you get angry when they get carried (away)
Oly baby you know I'm close
not like the other ones not one of those

I'll take you a trip to the islands
although you know that I hate to hold hands
we'll make love on the beach
go tell your friends they cannot find us

You got your numbers baby
who will love you more than me
Track Name: Over My Name
OVER MY NAME

In a way it's the end of good times
if you think that your past was enough to hide
and I know what a fool I can be
when your only request is to hear from me

I don't know if you feel everything is wrong
and the earth is shaking around you
all the days that they took away from you
here and there now or never

But I try to be part of the world
I will give what I take and I need no more
If you think that I'm ready to quit
be a afraid I will rise back on my two feet

All the few may their seats crumble and fall
now it's time for some crowd pushing
and you have to be ready for all
here and there now or never

I don't know if you feel everything is wrong
and the earth is shaking around you
all the days that they took away from you
here and there now or never

Here and there now or never
Track Name: The River
THE RIVER

Down by the river I know
women are washing their hope
they all stand naked
and I'm feeling so close

Down by the river of deceit
men are washing their guilt
they all keep shouting
with mud on their feet

Scream like you mean it
Moan like you mean it
Come if you want it
To the river

Curse your tears and regrets
place your hands on my chest
and ease this weary heart
by giving it back

Claim what's yours and don't run
make it sound like a plan
and drive your fears away
you'll see that is fun

Scream like you mean it
Moan like you mean it
Come if you want it
To the river
Track Name: Supply Chain
SUPPLY CHAIN

I have all that I wanted
and most of all I found love
In the way you hold me close
the night

I know that you wonder
why he couldn't stay a bit more
is he someone else
when you turning off the light

I will come to your home
but I feel nothing more
than a part of a supply chain

You'll see me laying on your floor
drinking wine making jokes
a part of a supply chain

Sleeping into your room
the dark of night so close

A small part of your heart
a big old part of me
on a supply chain

I have all that I wanted
and most of all I found love
when your breath is on my chest
tonight

I know that you wonder
why he couldn't stay a bit more
is he somewhere else
when you turning off the light

I will come to your home
but I feel nothing more
than a part of a supply chain

You'll see me laying on your floor
drinking wine making jokes
a part of a supply chain

Sleeping into your room
the dark of night so close

A small part of your heart
a big old part of me
on a supply chain
Track Name: Animal
ANIMAL

Just like you promised
I found that all I can take
Is more than enough and you know
It's not to late

I learned to crawl
and I scratch my nails on your flesh
I'll burn down my cage tonight
oh what a mess

Just like you wanted me
an animal

I smell the fear
and I'm ready to kill with my hands
to feed what is left of me
on my own terms

And when the time comes
and there'll be nothing left to drink
my thirst will be even worse
is that a sin

Just like you wanted me
an animal
