The Dead Suns e a estrada roqueira de “New Days for a Better Man”, seu disco de estreia.

Por Fabio Bridges

A história do The Dead Suns tem, entre idas e vindas, uma década. Mas se colocarmos no papel e somarmos a bagagem musical de seus quatro integrantes, esse enredo seria diferente. E um tanto mais longo. Vou usar um exemplo com conhecimento de causa: em 2008, quando a banda ainda engatinhava com o nome Oort Clouds, quem estava entre seus fundadores? Francisco Kraus, o cara que saiu do (obscuro) grupo Eterno Grito e ainda no final dos anos 80 fundou o Second Come - que só não foi às estrelas porque o mercado musical tupiniquim é, pra não usar palavrões, a imagem do retrocesso. Não sabe quem é Second Come? Pergunte ao Google ou ao Dado Villa-Lobos, guitarrista daquela famosa banda de Brasília... Enfim, só aí temos então uma trajetória com uns 30 anos, e em 2011 quando Maurício Mauk se juntou a Kraus, Renato Fernandes e Yuri Pinta para a formação definitiva do The Dead Suns, a soma se tornou complicada demais pra mim (Mauk começou o Bigtrep – ou A Grande Trepada, como prefiro – na metade dos 80’s, ao lado de um certo sujeito chamado Skunk, que um tempo depois formou a esquadrilha da fumaça, vulgo Planet Hemp).

É história pra mais de metro ou pra algumas noites num boteco, então qualquer dia você me paga um chope e continuamos. Porque agora chega de contar histórias passadas. Estamos em 2018, é hora de escrever a história do presente e “New Days for a Better Man”, finalmente, está entre nós. O primeiro disco dos Suns poderia ter cheiro de mofo ou ser um apanhado de colagens das tantas experiências que seus autores carregam nos cases, mas a ideia aqui não é essa. Olhar para o passado sim, buscar referências também, mas recauchutar os próprios pneus e usá-los como se fossem novos, não. Definitivamente o caminho é em frente. Do punch acelerado de "Living Among The Stars" faixa que abre o pacote até o final iluminado com a psicodélica “Get in The Way” e sua bela mensagem (“The sun shines high in the blue sky. Run, sing and laugh for your life”, ou em bom português, ‘não arregue!’), “New Days for a Better Man” é algo como um ‘road album’, uma viagem pelas diferentes paisagens da estrada esburacada – por onde nós todos corremos - chamada rock and roll.

Abra uma cerveja. Ouça alto!

Track Name: Living Amog The Stars
LIVING AMONG THE STARS

I can't wait anymore for you
There're a lot of things we have to do
Bring us the pills that make us fly
And don't forget to wear our disguise

Now we're ready to leave this world behind
And live among the stars

Everything is good and warm here
No annoying sounds cuts my ears
I'll not invite them to our house
They are so far
Maybe one day we can return
I don't believe this day will come

I can feel a little shiver inside
Calling me to hang out and sleep
Now we're ready to leave this world behind
And live among the stars
Track Name: Fake Smile
FAKE SMILE

I've heard the news about things to come
Some dirty hearts have turned to stone
It sounds to me like an expected shame
They always found somebody to blame

If I can give you an only advice
The lightning never hits the soil twice
We're just waiting for a better wind
Just put a fake smile ahead and sing

A fake smile just once in a while
A fake smile to deny the, trial

I get a fake smile on my face
I get a false eye to see their trace
I get a stronger heart to beat and run
I have a thick skin to wait in the sun

We get the wise man to read their plans
We get the right men to fight and stand
We're just waiting for a better wind
Just put a fake smile ahead and sing

A fake smile just once in a while
A fake smile to deny their trial
Track Name: Old Days, New Day
OLD DAYS, NEW DAY

Days, old days
Living in someplace behind the eyes
Days, old days
Burning memories to feed the heart
And today, body and soul, without you
Dance alone by the light of the moon...

Days, new day
Move around slowly everything in the world
Days, new day living in the tick-tock on my wall
And today, body and soul, without you
Dance alone by the light of the moon...
Track Name: A Long Act
A LONG ACT

Sometimes things seem to be wrong
But they're right in a crooked way
Sometimes we cannot see a way out
But it can be a New Year's Day

Don´t let them push you into a trap - 2X

I should be better and give a chance
Try to see what they see
Guys, you don’t know how hard it is
A long act and people are so mean

Don´t let them push you into a trap - 2X

You could meet me on the ledge
And we know that is not the end
I'd rather say that nothing could be so bad
And, you know, life is not so fair

In this tragic play,
There is no real role
There is no real, people
There's just to stay alive

You could meet me on the ledge
And we know that is not the end
I'd rather say that nothing could be so bad
And, you know, life is not so fair
Track Name: Seed
SEED

Peace beholds across the shining stars
If you keep your laugh despite the wars

You arrived that day and cried
I've tried to scare all lies away

She began to bond the broken tie
Release the clouds so we can see the sky

You arrived that day and cried
I fight to set you to fly away

Sleep and plunge your dreams deep down the sea
Free your mind and trust in what you see

You arrived that day and cried
Set out your strength
I'll die some day
Be proud of the land
Where life gets no end
Track Name: Better Man
BETTER MAN

I'm lost in the woods
Surrounded by threatening eyes
That blame and judge me by my thoughts
I'm walking in rounds and rounds and rounds...
Oh, my love, I'm looking for shelter in your hands

That gives me peace
That makes me a better man
That makes me feel home
And it’s only what matters

At my desk, you're still by my side
Pushing me off this sad reality
People born dead, grateful with their big sleep
Oh, my love, I'm looking for shelter in your hands

That gives me peace That makes me a better man That makes me feel home And It's only what matters
Track Name: Cracked Soil
CRACKED SOIL

When we came here
A bluer sky hailed us
Clear water sprouted below our feet
Blackbird sang a song who sounds like god, if he exists

Now, the lights gone down
And you really showed yourself
Digging my heart with nails, to grab my soul

Oh, mom, do you really must to do this to me?
Walking on a cracked soil, We became strangers at home
Shameless people who doesn’t care about
Feelings or thoughts

Now, the lights gone down
And you really showed yourself
Digging my heart with nails, to grab my soul
Track Name: Free Birds
FREE BIRDS

Things are changing in the world we know
Buy your ticket, get a seat and enjoy the trip
Look at the children, out there is still hope for this world
For all the poison there is an antidote

And it's no use putting out the lights
Where there is love there will always be a glow and we are stars to shine

See the free birds flying in the sky
I brought my wings and we can try
Leave all the fears behind
Release the weight of your back
And make the wind your spearhead
Do yourself a favor and smile
One day our trip will end
And think about what you'll want to leave in this place.
Track Name: Rise and Change
RISE AND CHANGE
I wait in vain for a sign of life
This summer never comes
We used to be so strong

Another cigarette to face
It´s going backwards
As life is passing by

Let me out and face it
You left me all alone
Let me rise and change it
Last time and done
The more you hide, the more I try
You’ll never steal my mind

Along the days, besides the years
Odd joys to embrace old fears
I’ll cry till dry these tears

Now look at the scars around my hands
Oh! Did you dare?
I hope these wounds don’t hurt again

Let me out and face it
You left me there and gone
Let me rise and change it
Once and for all
The more you hide, the best I fight
It’s getting really wild!
Track Name: Secret Ocean
SECRET OCEAN

An ocean made of secrets
Full of forgotten stories
Shaking arms, shaking legs
Swimming between memories,
Chasing the blue fish of Love
Fishing the gold Bird of life
Clean the gun and kill a friend
Now the enemy is anyone

Lost in the secret ocean
Confused in the seven seas
Waves burst in the sand
The wind spread the grains of memories
Track Name: Narrow Egde
NARROW EDGE
You say that everything is fine.
You hide and everything is cool.
You’re crazy
I have no time
You don’t think
I’ve nothing to hide

Do you think you can leave this way? (3x)
This world is about to end in fire!

You say "this is not love".
Cos’ there’s only one way to love
You're on the outside.
I'm inside.
You're the right side.
I'm the left side.

Do you think you can leave this way? (3x)
This world is about to end in fire!

You're the pure side.
I'm the dark side
You're the right side.
I'm the left side.

Do you think you can leave this way? (2x)
This world is about to end in fire!
Track Name: Escape Valve
ESCAPE VALVE

Dreams and wishes wasted
In lives where they don’t fit
Ruled by ghosts and mirrors
That swallows up all sanity
My flesh is old and rotten
And my soul is drowned
But I can breath
It´s not the end to me
You found me among the shadows
Lost in scratches of old beliefs
And showed me sounds and feelings
Point the direction to the exit
Your flesh is old and rotten
And your soul is drowned
But you can breath
I swear to set you free
Between the distant shining stars
I’ll build a warm place to hide
As soon we find our way
To shout forever side by side
Our fleshes are old and rotten
And our souls are drowned
But we can breath
Together we proceed
Track Name: Dead Tree Of Life
DEAD TREE OF LIFE

I’m like the shadow of a dying tree
No leaves and flowers can be born from me

The time is coming, you should be fast
Behind of us remains just dust and past
Forget the person that you used to be
We were like one, but you’re alone
From here

Among the wreckage of this melting world
You catch a light glimpse from falling stars
And let it grow up like an ancient sword
Just by your words the universe might
Restart

Exploding, expanding, colliding, awaking
Increasing, creating, arranging, pretending

Evolving from apes, competing with snakes
And living like shadows of God ‘till the end of the days
Track Name: Get In The Way
GET IN THE WAY

Don't say goodbye
Don't let the tears fall down
The sun shines high in the blue sky
Run, sing and laugh for your life
Don't let the fears dream beside you
Life screams... Wake up?
What will you do?
Get in the way...
