about

These songs come from my interest in Taoist teachings.
Tao I = Words are not truth, only approximations.
Tao II = There can be no good without bad, no God without the Devil.
Tao III = Concentrations of power cause corruption. It is best to work without taking credit.

I am a Stupid Human and these are my Tricks (hence the name). These are all home recordings with all music written, performed and recorded by yours truly. Mostly the songs are about the human condition, my personal trials and tribulations with inner demons and addictions, and anything else that I find interesting or amusing. ... more

Track Name: Tao I
The way I speak of is not the eternal way.
Names for things I´m giving, not eternal names.
The sky and earth come from a place without name.
The name is the mother of a million billion things

A secret´s not a secret when it´s not kept secret.
Things I never told you, truest of them all.

Without desire the forest can be seen.
Full of desire, only see the trees.
It´s all different, from the same source.
Hard to handle, looks like chaos.

A secret´s not a secret when it´s not kept secret.
Things I never told you, truest of them all.

Truest of them all dear. Truest of them all.
Things I never told you, truest of them all.

A secret´s not a secret when it´s not kept secret.
Things I never told you, truest of them all.

Darkness within darkness, the gate to mystery.
Darkness within darkness, are we too blind to see?
Are we too blind to see?
Track Name: Tao II
In this world we all know beauty, as beauty, knowing ugliness.
In this world we all need evil. Through evil we know true goodness.

So to have and not to have come together.
Difficult and easy work off each other.
Front and back are father and are mother.
Long and short following one another.
High and low build upon each other.
Sound and silence need each other.

So the wise walk this world doing nothin,
Teaching no talking, going with the flow.
Millions rise, millions fall. They burn so brightly.
Don´t cling too tightly. Love them. Let them go.

Creating yet not holding ever.
Working without trying to look clever.
Work is done, no credit taken whatsoever.
That way it lasts forever.
That way it lasts forever.

In this world we all know beauty, yours truly, knowing ugliness.
Track Name: Tao III
Lookin´ for losers. Havin´ a contest.
Fight to the finish. Only one is best.
But all this struggle, so like a muggle.
Learn how to lose falling flat.
No pullling rabbits from your hat.

All of your gold eggs just in one basket.
Dude comes along and he tries to snatch it.
Own all you want to, things can own you too.
The bait always brings out the rat.
Hooked on that sweet, salty fat.

Leaders don´t lead us to temptation.
Borrowing from future generations.
And all the pundits pushing what tastes good.
Don´t chase shiny new. Just do what you know you should.
Do what you know you should.
The hero did all he could.
The hero did all she could.

Society´s based on terms of temptation
Taboo on the screen, surreal titilation.
You´re not OK, they´re OK, models in neglige.
They stare at you don´t stare back.
They live to show what you lack.

They live to show what you...
They live to show what you...
They live to show what you lack.

They stare at you don´t stare...
They stare at you don´t stare...
They stare at you don´t stare back.
