The Shak & Speares Italy

There is Marlowe Family goin’around with a circus gang. They have no destination but they know the direction. This musical journey is made to move…to move bums, souls and cactuses. When a circus arrives in town, nobody wants to know where it comes from, but everybody wants to see the balance on the edge and the imbalance on the sand. Everybody wants to hear the shout after the silence... ... more

Track Name: Subway In Love
Hey it’s another day!
the clock is ticking and telling us we're late
we've got a lonely bowl then get dressed
we've got no time to get a morning rest

in the subway we await trains
we await someone to calm our brains
and I find you there on a bench
and you smile to me moving your trench

"You look so lovely today"
I try to say...
"I wish you a lovely fine day"
is all I said

We’re on a date

We are lovely
We are all that we needed today
Some days in the subway
We are lovers and comets in trains
We are not lonely there and I swear
We’ll be the life-breath on this smoking rail
We are not lonely there and I swear
We’ll be the life-breath on this smoking rail

"You look so lovely today"
I try to say...
"I wish you a lovely fine day"
is all I said

We’re on a date

Kenton Kew gardens Kilburn
Barking Balham Aldgate

Pinner Stockwell Star lane
Lancaster Gate Queensway

Oval Old Street Moorgate
White Chapel….Angel’s your name….

Uxbridge Camden Holborn
Victoria Mile End Leyton

Go in… Go in….
Go and…

Tell me what you think
Of the carebbean sea
Our rhapsody is changing the way of the rail
Do you feel the breeze that is the soul of the sea
A lullaby is what we can listen to here
You don’t know where
I neither know where we’ll go
You tell me that morning can wait on this love
Stand up my dear
a stop and we’ll dive in the sand
open the door
a stop and we’ll stare at the sun

do u want to drink?
Why don’t we go to a bar?
I’ll take a gin
And you?: “amaro lucano”

We’re at the same
Way to go falling in love
Drink by my heart:
It’s very very Italian!

Who uses Parmisan?
And good wine?
Who doesn’t work but
can have sex?
Who travels on this train
Without tickets?
Who has lost his head?
It’s me: mad for you!
Track Name: Sailor's Promises
You are my oxygen
I love your keen intelligence

You are a sublime thing
I am just a human being

I ride a thousand waves
and I’m looking for the land

I need a bit of rest
And I find u on those cold docks

it's so easy.
hey my girl I’ll go
it's so easy.
But my heart will not

it's so easy.
hey my girl I’ll go
it's so easy.
But my soul will not
You are my oxygen
So take my heart and soul

I need your innocence
Let’s go behind the fence

I’ll show u happyness
Save it for my absence

Haha It’s your first time!
For sure it’s not the last

it's so easy.
hey my girl I’ll go
it's so easy.
But my heart will not

it's so easy.
hey my girl I’ll go
it's so easy.
But my soul will not
Track Name: Dreamland
Jane why don’t u send
A letter from away?
Full of dollaries,
And written with a dreamland pen.
You say now you’re fine
In your new house in Canada.
A Happy traveller
You were
And now u got the base!
Thank you Mary Jane!!!

Jane in the jungle
You did surfing,
You went to Spain
to design a stripper dress

Jane even marble
You did work
But u made so many holes
And u got to Frankfurt

Are we insane
To think….
let’s understand
Are we insane
To bet….
let’s understand
Are we insane
To guess….
let’s understand
Are we insane
Oh lord….
we’ve understood!

I just can’t calm down:
I’m coming up your way!
Shaking dollaries
You’re sleeping in another bed…
You say now you’re fine
In your new house in Canada.
A Happy traveller
You were
And now u got the base!
Happy Mary Jane!!!

Jane in the jungle
You did surfing,
You went to Spain
to design a stripper dress

Jane even marble
You did work
But u made so many holes
And u got to Frankfurt

Are we insane
To think….
let’s understand
Are we insane
To bet….
let’s understand
Are we insane
To guess….
let’s understand
Are we insane
Oh lord….
we’ve understood!

I just can’t calm down:
I’m coming up your way!
Shaking dollaries
You’re sleeping in another bed…
That’s why
Now you got the base!!!

Jane in the jungle
You did surfing,
You went to Spain
to design a stripper dress

Jane even marble
You did work
But u made so many holes
And u got to Frankfurt

Are we insane
To think….

Are we insane
Oh lord….
we’ve understood!

I just can’t calm down…
Bloody Mary Jane!
Track Name: Stuck In A Bottle
I did not have words
I was in a tunnel before december
It took a lot of days
I’ll not drink a fucking glass…no more!

You did not have words
You were in a tunnel before december
It took a lot of days
We waited a lot to burn. Come on!

Arrested coma…please calm down…
(once again now)
I shout for
The sense of a kiss to come out
(once again now)

You have had
sad tears run down in summer
(once again now)
….Whatever…
just have one piece of moon!
(once again now)

why are u so blind?
Our days have come bright
Our days have life
Oh Kiss me on my mind!
Track Name: Courtney Is Dead
Dave, I want you to get a buggy
To go to the beach
I want you to get a buggy
To go away from here
I want you to get a buggy
So cool and kitsch
I want you to get a buggy
With no fear!


I wanna get free from madness
No no way
I wanna get free from madness
No no way
I wanna get free from madness
No no way
I wanna get free from madness
It’s been two years…

Grohl, I want you to get a buggy
To clean with bleach
I want you to get a buggy
To go away from here
I want you to get a buggy
So cool and kitsch
I want you to get a buggy
Negative creep
Track Name: Criminal Prayer
Black birds start flyin'
in a criminal world
Badlands are dry
cast the first bloody stone

Look back to watch your back
They’re back again

Here’s your badge
don’t u want now
to be shot again?
It’s your horse
that is kicking up?
I’m wondering!!!
Those nice people
wanna see you die
and so shoot again

Give us back the sunshine
and bed all down
as a mad dog
have a bug-jus
restart feeding your Black-eyed Susan

It’s the best way
Through the window
With a jump out of your life
There’s no memories
I am feeling you
I can see a bounty hunter tonight

Look back to watch your back
They’re back again

There’s a grave
ready for the world
do you feel the pain?
It’s the brave
that we want now
not a poltergeist
it's the brave
that will change the world
not your Jesus Christ

Look back to watch your back
They’re back...

Give us back the sunshine
Come out from the dark
Go among the Willows,
don't waste the time of your life

Give us back the sunshine
Come out from the dark
Go among the Willows,
I can see a bounty hunter tonight
Track Name: Casto Street
Resistance to your existence
Ignores where exactly it can go
Hey my friend you did so well
Why do you think it’s better to go?

On your bed you overstand
As you were 87 years old
Hey my friend you’re young and strong
So change your mind, don’t say hallo

get up and let ‘em in
You need some visiting

Stand up and let ‘em in
You know when it’s better to go

Resistance to your existence
Ignores where exactly it can go
Hey my friend you did so well
Why do you think it’s better to go?

On your bed you overstand
As you were 87 years old
Hey my friend you’re young and strong
I see u shaking during the show
Track Name: No Prey, No Pay!
hey my sailors keep away!
lustful Johnny just belay!
Sea legs ‘s gone and now you’ll taste the whale…

hey my friend you have no chance:
more you move more you dance
water has no mercy for you all!

You have changed the same clothes
What if I burn you
Lighting up this crackling dynamite?

Yes save it all for charity
What a chance of sanity!
Water is just waiting for your leap!

You’re behind the mast
I see the shape of you walking this way…
Who am I to shoot the gents ?!?
shoot at that shadow
‘cause No pray, no pay!
