about

Alicia Edelweiss Vienna, Austria

Alicia Edelweiss’ shows should rather be described as dramatic and comic performances than as concerts. She will go as far as stroking chicken toys and strangling herself with toilet paper to make a good show. Most of the time she plays accordion, sometimes her granny's guitar and if there's a grand piano standing around she'll start chanting and yelling to it as well. ... more

Track Name: The Cockroaches And Me
I was broke
so I got me a job
They gave me a bed
and made sure I was fed

Well after the night
I woke up in delight
cause I wasn't on my own anymore
my whole life was changing for sure

While the others
would trip and drink
in the meanwhile
I would have a think
How to free my mind for real
How to get myself into a peer
good friends to hang out in dirty streets
good friends to watch porn and make some beats

Well God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
drinking tea, singing let it be
the cockroaches and me!

They accepted me
straight away
without antenna
still they said I could stay
I never knew that cockroaches were so nice
In school we'd learnt that they were dirty parasites
And noone was better or worse
and if you wanted to go to church
they wouldn't bug you
no they wouldn't bug you

Well God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
daytrips to the sea
finally set free
the cockroaches and me!

Though history tried to seperate us
and others said that we were just posers
we formed
an anarchist collective
and laid out
our basic objections:
to stop this pointless seggregation,
more warm dark public spaces,
no compound-eye-discrimination

oh our friendship was so strong
we proved the world it was wrong
that indeed we could go hand in hand
and rule the world together
oh and rule the world together

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
climbing trees, bruises on our knees
the cockroaches and me!

As the human beings
were destroying themselves
the cockroaches gave a crashcourse on endurance and health
in the end everyone died except for us
oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush
oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush no more, oh no more!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
drinking tea, singing let it be
the cockroaches and me!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
daytrips to the sea, finally set free
the cockroaches and me!

Well, God sent me a harem of insects
who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect
climbing trees, bruises on our knees
the cockroaches and me!

The cockroaches and me
oh! the cockroaches and me!
the cockroaches and meee
Track Name: See The Generations
See the generations
see them passing by
a host of memories
bearing dreams for light

One to slay
and one to weep
and one to lose and one to keep

And one to hurt, one to heal
one to give and one to steal
and one to loathe, to loathe

See the generations
see them trudging by
how their tears fall
how their faces shine

I have been them all
I remember well
my birthings and my dyings
the colours of my soul
but now I'm so tired, mother
take me with you when you go

Ah no, my child
go back to sleep
for living is a dream
and you must learn to play your part
and call them by their names
the comrades with whom you fight this life
so many and many a time

See the generations
see them marching by
how they bravely live their lives
how they bravely die

I have been them all
I remember well
my birthings and my dyings
the colours of my soul
but now I'm so tired, mother
take me with you when you go
Track Name: The Flamenco-Whore
You asked me why
I was going to leave
So many times
It made my ears bleed

Oh you know it's just the weather
and mummy didn't love me

Your French just didn't have style
"Vous etes tres belles" never made me smile
When you started with your Spanish
Antonio would razz another tuneage

Oh how sorry I felt for that self of mine
Listening to the Flamenco-whore whine and whine

As we were getting on with it
The Flamenco-whore had one of his fits
Oh my, he had no respect for kids
And I'm pretty sure he saw my tits

Oh I lost all self-control
You had a terrible accent and put it on show
When you said "Je cherche la verité"
I punched you in the face and ran far away
oh I'm so sorry I had to punch you in the face and run run away

Oh you know it's just the weather
Oh and mummy never loved me
As the Flamenco-whore would drink his wine
You knew that girl will never be mine

So I decided that your black curly hair
just wouldn't keep me there
I decided your high-pitched girly laugh
just destroyed all my dreams

And of course I do feel some guilt and shame
But seriously I'm not the one to blame
For you falling in love
with an immature, selfish cunt

Oh but you know it's just the weather
And mummy didn't love me
And the Flamenco-whore would never stop
Just to remind me what real pain was

So I was driven out of town
By your friends and a sad sad clown
And to end this whole story
I thought you were really really boring
But still I'll say sorry
Cause you did cause me slight worry

But as I said it was the weather
and mummy didn't love me

And the Flamenco-whore went on and on
singing all of his heart-breaking songs

If the weather had been better
maybe but probably not, I'd still be in your arms
maybe but probably not, we'd be holding hands
maybe but probably not, I'd stand a minute by your side

But as I said it was the weather
and mummy didn't love me
and noone ever loved me
except for you
so I threw you away
Track Name: Ivan The Terrible
He crossed the sea for one pretty girl
he found himself in a crazy cell
away from his brother, away from his cat
who if they had the chance, would stab him in the back

He crossed the town for one single fuck
craving for safety, a devoted slut
It's a pity that I don't have a bed
'Well we can still kiss', that's what he said

And all the girls went wild
oh when he gave 'em his smile
And all the girls went wild
oh when he gave 'em his smile

He crossed the park for my stolen stuff
sons of bitches, he was my love
he kissed like a wolf, devouring his pray
and when he talked a lot, I didn't know what to say

We crossed the night, it ended bad
It had been three days, that we'd had
flirting while holding my hand and guitar
rolling and rolling in the ragged grass

He had the devil's face but never won the race
he had the devil's face but always lost the race
and all the girls went wild
oh when he gave 'em his smile

Oh you don't have to seduce no more
you don't have to seduce no more, no more
I'll never see him again
Oh no I'll never see him again and his devil's face

And all the girls went wild
oh when he gave 'em his smile

He had the devil's face but never won a race
He had the devil's face but never won the race
and all the girls went wild
oh when he gave 'em his smile
Track Name: Insects Crawling Under My Skin
Insects crawling under my skin
something's wrong and I know it's not the drugs
I bet you trust everyone and everything
Oh, I know you'd never want to hurt me
oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you

What are you trying to escape from?
you're so young, never killed, you should go home
so listen girl, I really like you
and if you left without saying goodbye
oh sister, I would die
oh sister, I would die

So take these pills
they will make you really chilled
oh you know I'd never want to hurt you
oh you know I'd never want to hurt you

But when you smile everything seems alright
and between those smiles I catch those lonely eyes
and the whole world is falling into you
and the whole world is falling into you

Oh do you think I'm pretty enough?
Oh do you think I'm woman enough?
Oh I wish I was human enough
oh I know you'd never want to hurt me
oh I know you'd never want to hurt me

Well insects are crawling under my skin
something's wrong and I know it's not the drugs
I bet you trust everyone and everything
Oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you
oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you

Oh when you smile everything seems alright
and between those smiles I catch those lonely eyes
and the whole world is falling into you
and the whole world is falling into you
and you know I'd never want to hurt you
and you know I'd never want to hurt you
Track Name: Pierre
He was such a lonely guy
paragliding through the sky
but after landing hard
he gave it a new start
with a career as a taxi driver
and a badass womaniser

Oh you know one week in hospital
can be quite traumatising girl
So let daddy show the direction
oh, let daddy give you some affection

Oh Pierre, oh mon père
don't you think it's a bit unfair
Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père
Should your hands really go there?

A wife and a bunch of kids
were not enough for Pierre's big big heart
and as long as you had a pair of tits
you were pretty sure to get a major part
in his romantic action comedy
indeed, a midlife crisis tragedy
he was a sexmachine, not only on stage
he didn't give a shit, don't know to behave

Oh Pierre, oh mon Pierre
you had so much love to share
Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père
Should your hands really go there?

Stress is not in my vocabulary
since my accident I'm always merry
Carpe Diem is my thing
and all the ladies deserve the king
I'm the lion come out of my cave
and you're the lost soul I'm gonna save

Oh Cindy always thought she was gay
but at the end of her stay
she paid for one more day
as she met the Frenchman of her life
he was the fire for her dynamite
oh no better place for making love!
in the common room it would get quite rough!
And the bathroom floor would suit as well
oh how impulsive Pierre would moan and yell:

Oh Pierre! Oh Pierre!
You had so much love to share!
Oh Pierre! Oh mon cher père
Don't you think it's a bit unfair?
Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père
Should your hands really go there?

Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père
oh don't you think it' a bit unfair
oh you had so much love to share

Oh Pierre, oh Pierre, oh Pierre, I miss you so
Oh Pierre
Should your hands really go there?
Track Name: When There Is No Home
When I come home from a bad night out
it makes me philosophical, thinking about
that one and one make none and all my friends have gone
and I wish I'd never seen the sun,
oh I wish I'd never seen the sun

Strangers come and go, some stop to say hello
once a week you might have a cup of tea
and they always turn out different
from what you thought them to be
but does it matter in the end
that you made one more friend
to spend some time
for the sake of some memories
for the sake of wasted memories

But, where do you go
when there is no home?
where do you go
when there is no home

People wanting bread and games
others enlightment, is it the same?
oh, is it really brave to live this life
or just stupid not to turn to suicide?
oh, I'd have to drop that knife
if I found there was eternal life
oh I'd be so disappointed
to cancel my last appointment
to cancel my last appointment

But, where do you go
when there is no home?
Tell me, where do you go
when there is no home

After all you change the place
in case someone starts to read your face
which coast it doesn't matter
someone just show me something better
I can't stand the harem of people no more
I keep to let me forget what I don't know
I keep to let me forget what I don't know

But, where do you go
when there is no home?
Tell me, where do you go
when there is no home

I know it's all just there for me
the turn-off-button is hidden in the sea
and it'll take me more than a thousand years
to dive to the bottom of my fears
but in the end you're on your own
and it seems like you still haven't grown
no one you love can really fill your soul
no one you love can really fill your soul

But, where do you go
when there is no home?
Tell me, where do you go
when there is no home?

Tell me, where should I go when there is no home?
Tell me where should I go when there's no place to belong?
Tell me where do you go when there is no home?
Tell me where should I go when there is no home
