about

Pirates Canoe Kyoto, Japan

–– A roots music loving band, hopelessly stuck somewhere between American and Japanese ––

Although the members come from all sorts of genres, the band focuses mainly on Americana and roots-based music. All songs are original, yet sound like they could have been around for a while, managing to create a traditional but fresh sound.

Track Name: Dragon
You never said you wanted me, you never lied like I did
This was an honest mistake on my part, and you never cried like I did

Your goodbye was so sweet, it almost made me feel complete
Cut, bleed, melt and disappear like icy hail, thoughtless sleet

Nothing can touch your soul, your words burn my marrow cold
Track Name: Spider Tattoo
I’m going right for that trap that she laid out
There’s something inside me saying I’ve gotta have her right now
The way she holds me, it turns me inside out
The way she holds me

Honey in her eyes
Danger in her lies
A little poison in her sighs
And in a place where nobody can see
A spider tattoo
Oh, she’s got me now

Blind as a beetle, I’ll pay for this I know
But she’s got a hold on every namby-pamby rose-clutching boy
The way she kisses, it puts me on a role

Honey in her eyes
Danger in her lies
A little poison in her sighs
And in a place where nobody can see
A spider tattoo
Oh, she’s got me now
Track Name: Powder Moon
Underneath a powder moon I held you for a while
There I saw your lovely face for the first time
There is no more good or bad, the world has changed, you know
But of course, there are some things that never will
Can you guess what?
Track Name: The Witch of the Hills
She lives alone in a cave decorated in brown
She sells dangerous charms at the market in town
She grows yarrow and thyme and red willow-berries
She’s the witch of the hills in the dale of Surrey

Nobody knows the way she dreams away
Nobody knows the way she screams

Powdered bones and vanilla beans make for a powerful potion of love
Bright lights and scary shadows are for naughty young children
Bugs and wine for a fortune
She’s the witch of the hills in the dale of Surrey

Please don’t tell her what we took from her garden last night
She’s the witch of the hills, she’s the witch of the hills
She’s the witch of Surrey
Her love charms and spells sell so well
See all the kids go this-a-way that-a-way
Her dreams and her screams, they’ll find a way to see the light

She lives alone in a cave decorated in brown
Track Name: Cocktail Wanderlust
I’ve got my suitcase, I’ve got a ticket and a little bit of cash
I’m gonna catch that early Greyhound westward bound
I’ve got a feeling, I’ve got a feeling that I’ll never get enough
Of this old roaming around

[Chorus]
When I arrive
When I survive another morning without your face

I never have a reason, there ain’t nothing wrong with this old town
I can’t help following that long and lonesome way
A little bit of sunshine
A little bit of guilt, courage and pain
A little bit of someday

*Repeat chorus

I’ve got my suitcase, I’ve got a ticket and a little bit of cash
Another cup of wanderlust
Track Name: En Ulas Ta
Hunon el toug rapo uja
Tougo mon ah egriya
Moji vadot uja

Owra el sigou mon sig
Lantie, hutulie
Mosya kaw dinch ta

Hunon el toug rapo uja
Tougo mon ah egriya
Moji vadot uja

En ulas ta!
Carno sig bau poaku nu feidow

En ulas ta!
En ulas ta!
