about

With Beautiful Explosion, Plajia radiates a very special energy, a certain kind of magic justified by its brit-pop influences and key words in their lyrics, sent like floating musical notes into your hearts and brains, which convey romanticism, melancholy and optimism, but also with hard-rocking, vibrant and catchy rhythms.

The title-track, Beautiful Explosion is the album’s first single. It’s also the last of the eleven recorded songs of the album; it was inspired by the fact that if explosions are often reported in the news, they can also be joyous, festive and playful! Musically, the album is influenced by the British-pop compositions of the 60’s and 70’s icon groups, often with a psychedelic and progressive twist.

Track Name: Dummy
Dummy
I shake the dummy
Until it suddenly awakes
So you wanna be afraid?
You still want to be impressed
It takes all your breath away
Dummy
I beg the dummy
To dress nicely
Dummy

Shifting, fragile like the eyes
That can see through you
Whether you like it or not I can see through you
Now open up the eyes and let it breathe
Track Name: God's Waiting In Line
Coming out of the war
The only one we're born for
Bashing tv sets, running after cabs, proud of our cars
I'm wasting my time
Waiting in line

Everyone at their best
I've never heard of the rest
Going out isn't free and having you near me
Is not wasting my time
Wasting my time
Waiting in line
Coming out of the war
The only one we're born for
Bashing tv sets, running after cabs, proud of our cars
I'm wasting my time
Waiting in line
Track Name: Sleeping
I’m so tired of this life
Tired of this side of me
I could never talk to God
Never talk to us
I’m free, I’m free
Ohhh Ohhh

I’m so tired of this life
Too tired to decide for me
I could never talk to love
I never thought it was
A dream, a dream
Ohhh Ohhh

I’m so tired of this life
Tired of this side of me
I could never talk to God
Never talk to us
I’m free, I’m free
Ohhh Ohhh
Track Name: Beautiful Explosion
Fly down, hit bounds
From Rockefeller
I slip a water balloon
It took like
Fifty seconds
To get their New York heads
Wet and surprised

Had those USA firecrackers
I called one of my friends
Then we, dressed up a donut into a sugar bomb
Oh lord! it all disappeared

Whatever happens to the skies
And when the movies are no lies
Bang is no deadly word

Just stay away from the subways
Don't stand close to suspicious cars
Move out into the country
Get away, get away

What about rock shows like Paul McCartney’s
When he says "Live and let die"
Big flames, come out high from the stage
Clearly seen from a plane

Anyway, anyhow we suffer little
Until the sun blows us up
Yeah baby
If I can only see the morning
After we all disappeared

Whatever happens to the skies
And when the movies are no lies
Boom covers it all

Just stay away from the subways
Don't stand close to suspicious cars
Move out into the country
Get away, get away

I’ll let you know when I blow (up like a)
Symphony of debris
I’ll let you know when I blow (up like a)
A symphony of debris
I’ll let you know when I blow (up like a)
A symphony of debris
I’ll let you know when I blow
Track Name: Crazy Lovely Happiness
I’m on my way
Seal it inside
Bloody marks shall suddenly know
What I’ve planned

I will stay in love
I will stay in love
I will stay in love
I will, I will
Track Name: A Love Song For Everyone
Nobody knows what I say
Nobody wants to live this way
Nobody, cries for me

Nobody tries to save the world
Which has been saved already pals
Nobody, nobody

It’s a love song for everyone

Nobody reaches perfection
Because they don’t know what this word means
Nobody, just me

Because our love is reflection
Do this for me, you sweet person
Nobody, nobody

It’s a love song for everyone
Track Name: Meet Me In Hong Kong
Get your play, get your cause
Catch her faith, stadium joke
Graduated, e-mail pros
Can you make it?

He was getting closer
Nobody told her
That he was a freaking liar

The plane was real
Hours killed away

Pretty lights, get you far
A billion stores, same with floors
Many faces, but no love
She was waiting

Guess who never came
Nobody told her
That he was a freaking liar

She felt breeze
Down her knees
No way
Track Name: Beating The Charms
Not so long ago I was just a lonely man
Losing faith over things that break
Now I got myself a hell of a deal
Her and me happy and it feels ok, but

One lie, one lost
All this love, undone

Once you go there,
They'll be no fun
Be sure my friend
I'll beat the charms

Donne moi ta main

One lie, one lost
All this love, undone

Prend ton élan
On saute en bas
Dans la confiance
Dans l'insouciance

Donne moi ta main
Track Name: This House
You know, I started to feel pain
When my toys all went away
Hiding places got mislaid

I know, behind is now much older
Well my lady still is young
Everybody’s gotta run

‘til I reach this house
Something there
Always there
Makes me sad
I miss this house

You know, my heart is getting colder
All the phonies on the streets
Missing love that brings a home

I know, despite the wood and brick walls
Yes I’ve learned to get along
Making soup or making songs
‘til I reach this house

Something there
Track Name: Is That The End?
Is, is that the end?
Tell me please
So i can bleed

Falling knives
Going down my soul
My belly jams
One cure for this
Your love
Your love

‘cause I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
Tell me please
And make it clear

Yes I'm still bleeding
Not believing
But I'm still bleeding
I'm still bleeding
Tell me please
The end is near
Track Name: The Other Life Of Squared Pixels
Girl would you like me to leave, to leave my very dreams
Get on a sofa so far somewhere with my stupid games
No no, this ain't my story but surely it's really neat
Geeks by the beach all playing role playing Microsoft games
Why search for greatness in such tiny worlds of squared pixels
Boy get out there, it's not fair, get a girl and touch a pair
Get on a sofa so close to her you can smell her legs

Now you wanna let go
Now you wanna let go
Now you wanna let go, go, go, go, go

Yeah yeah yeah yeah

Get inside my song
Get inside my song
Get inside my song
