Chloroform, the second extract from the upcoming album 1/9/84, is out today on streaming platforms and digital stores. Released after “Down with Big Brother”, it further expands the sonic palette of the new album, introducing a wide range of sounds and moods.

The artwork is an original painting by Giuseppe Vallenari (a.k.a. El Matador Alegre).

Plain with no sign
that this is life
it’s just flashing by 
and disappear again.
Now I’m all alone
and I got no friends to call
on the telephone
(just like yesterday).

Breathe in, something strange.
Breathe out, I sleep all day.
This is not a song,
it’s chloroform.
Well, who cares?

And it’s so lovely
a glimpse of me and you
your red dress in June
I guess we were talking.
Screens spitting out words
but I got nothing to learn
from tv shows
(wasted brains).

Breathe in and fly away.
Breathe out, you know I’d stay.
I am the tornest and dumbest angel
the sky has seen.

This is not a song,
it’s chloroform.
Do you care?
