The Curtain Shop And Alterations
(Music and Words by Fausto Martin)


Streets don’t hold any fairy tales
And dreams disappear overnight
the curtain shop looks like a jail
Another day goes by

People walking down the street
Traffic’s thundering
All playing their role as a walk-on part
My lead role’s really sad

That’s the way it should be played
Keeping in mind the rules
All my plastic soldiers rest
In an old box of shoes

I am an easy going guy
But I’m not doing well
The screenplay ain’t got any appeal
this story’s out of date

Needles are breaking my veins
These alterations again
Day after day it’s the same

All my life looks like a Murakami’s tale
Always looking for something out there
Surrounded by other people’s loneliness
Would you like to know what’s coming next?
Throw me in at the deepest end

Needles are breaking my veins
These alterations again
Day after day it’s the same

Streets don’t hold any fairy tales
And dreams disappear overnight
the curtain shop looks like a jail
desire’s jail , my mind’s jail

But I don’t know why, I don’t know why…
