about

Love or die, it’s as simple as that. It’s what we were expecting from them that they keep on reminding us that life is much easier than it seems at times. If “Squared Wheels” was like a cure for anxiety or a pick me up, the second album “Love or Die” (or even the one with the heart tree) continues to make us see beaches where because of the need for asphalt there aren’t any. We know that Ferran, Xavi, Carles and Enric (Bullitt) have something to say and that’s why they put out records. In the 21st century, with every passing decade, this happens less. And they strive to break down this temporary barrier that devastates some albums. We could be wearing shorts on a summer’s day in the nineties, messing around after high school graduation, on the way to the office with bottled water a decade after or imagine ourselves finding this record after a move, 25 years later, crossing our fingers that the record player needle has stood the test of time. If it hasn’t, I’m not worried because after listening to it so many times I almost know all the songs. Simple? Natural. Good? Without a doubt, because of this we experience a pleasant, some would say chemical, feeling in our bodies. Looking for an explanation in Punset’s programmes, I call it well being. That beach that I imagine while listening to “Survivors”, recognising the dependence of a fine thread in the perfection of “Don’t ever fail” or knowing with “Vision of condition” that the values that we got while wearing shorts in the nineties, are still around even though nowadays white hairs aren’t just for old people. “Beta Pelican” is another call to camaraderie and doesn’t let us get flustered by those who say that life is difficult to understand, when sometimes it’ s enough to feel the illusion and understand the wind. It’s good to know that we are more. That our soundtracks are going to be timeless and everlasting. That’s what Bullitt say between grooves and make it sound good. They show up all the paraphernalia of the trends. Where were you looking? Don’t forget who you are, it seems to recommend an album conceived to be listened to while watching how people walk, laugh and play. Songs that have such an impact are never by chance, they only come about when you have something to say and without this it would be impossible for an album like Love or die to exist.

Track Name: Love Or Die
back on a trip to the end of the world
I was collecting views from the top
you don’t seem to be going nowhere around
and you think about this awful reaction
and everything that we’ve made
knowing anyone else was going to fade

do you know me like I did
It’s always like the 80’s
I wait and see

back on a trip to the end of the world
I was collecting views from the top
you don’t seem to be going nowhere around
and we go for a walk to the mountains
now the iceland is near
I’ll meet you where waterfalls are waiting to break

do you know me like I did
It’s always like the 80’s
I wait and see

If you don’t love me no more
back on a trip to the end of the world
Track Name: The Meaning Of The Sound
we spent some time in the city
and we went party all night
we had some drinks in the hostel
before we closed every bar

we took our way to the highway
Carlus was driving for hours
we had a meal in a lost place
Ferran was talking to Pla

we lost a cell playing frisbee
outside the restaurant park
we spin around and we found it
we crashed it under the van

are we playing next monday
we‘ve got a new one to try
It’s not gonna go on the record
but maybe santi will like

we had a perfect time along the road
are we gonna miss a chance to make it once
and we just can’t wait for the next day
would it be things are going well
yes we care about the meaning of the sound
Track Name: Survivors
I’m going around in circles
to rise a new myself
low on the deepest dark grave
the rule I don’t understand

I wanna drift till the end of the year
I wanna take care about my dear
I wanna reach for the end of the sky
I wanna teach you how to survive

while roses are waiting to fall

I’m looking for my shelter
to ride the perfect wave
get ready for the shore days
to loose my fears on the sand

I wanna drift till the end of the year
I wanna take care about my dear
I wanna reach for the end of the sky
I wanna teach you how to survive

when roses have grown you’ll know
if I made things right
the truth in your eyes will show
that I’ve let you down
Track Name: Lying Way
If you don’t know where to go
If it’s written in your soul and you’re just reacting
I will show you where to go
If you’re trusting me once more when it all comences

If you don’t know where to go
If you’re waiting for the call and you’re just reacting
I will show you where to go
If you’re turning on the score when I just can’t fight this lying way
I would do it If I could
I’m in a mood
I just can’t hide

If you don’t know where to go
If it’s written in your soul and you’re just reacting
I will show you where to go
If you’re trusting me once more when I just can’t fight this lying way
I would do it If I could
I’m in a mood
I just can’t hide

and I see this cold is driving me insane
Track Name: Countryclub
I searched for gold on empty rivers
and passed the bounds from valley hill
I’m once again straight to the crossroad
I’ve found a way to disappear

I’m just a poor guy
who’s reward is not complete
don’t worry baby
I’ll try to leave no tear

so dry your eyes
and please stay close to me this starry night
my hands are tired I still have time to think about how I
wish you where here
Track Name: Don't Ever Fail
I walk alone and I don’t really know how
ready to make always the same mistake
If at least I could go where you’be been for a long time
promise I’d keep falling to the bright side

am I ready to go where you’be been for a long time
leaving the pain underwater again
I remember the day when we came to this old town
sleep unafraid waiting for a postcard

If I ever loose this feeling would it take me far away
If I ever listen to it I Would never be the same
ain’t it easy to get faster when you’re rising to the end
If I ever listen to it I would never be the same

are you standing still to walk with me this long road
honey don’t ever fail pick me up on tuesday
Track Name: Cold Surrender
I wake up on a sunny day
waiting for the moment
I get blown by a shiner light
and I could get some rest

there are times I clear up my mind
and I see the answers
but the memories still arise
wishing for the old days

waiting for the fall
a cold surrender
screaming out for more
the cold surrender

by the night I go for a ride
through the fields I wonder
and I wait for the rain to come
in a way I can’t explain

there are times I do ask myself
what I’ve done for ten years
when electrical call at last
came into the wrong place

waiting for the fall
a cold surrender
screaming out for more
the cold surrender
Track Name: Vision Of Condition
here it comes a new way to be cruel
welcome to the drowning corporated
protest for the high prices that you pay
everything is ready to release you out of state

there must be another point of view
‘cause the one we have is now obsolete
burn your money down, throw it to the air
anything it’s ok if you don’t give it to them

and it’s a vision of condition what I have inside of me
you got a minute to keep running, got a minute to feel free
there is another kind of vision coming up the end is near
you got a minute to keep running
got a minute to feel free
Track Name: Beta Pelican
I was waiting for the radio
when you came around i was alone
how can I reach out this melody
many words doesn’t make sense to me

well done
get a break in no time
I’ve been sinking through the night
is it just the wind it breaks
would it help you someway
I’ll be waiting by the sea
is there only room for free
is it just the wind it breaks
would it help me someday

I was waiting for the radio
too much concentration
running out of steam
now it looks i’m breaking through it
Track Name: Switch My Lighter
do you feel any strange connection
with the age of technology
do you need any broken mirror
to predict what it’s gonna be
have you seen an enormous lightning
when it breaks through the atmosphere
and you’re thinking about to reach out
you may look for a time machine

maybe someday we try to lift up
let me tell you now all the truth
do you make everything with passion
or you live like the others do
will you ever begin to know this
and I just need a lover too
when she came out to make things over
and she still got a lot to proof

wake up and don’t lie down
you’re the one to switch my lighter
tiny dancers never break down
they just stand to switch your lighter
