about

Eluktrick Małopolskie, Poland

ELUKTRICK is a band about ideas, emotions, experiments and experiences forged by the fires of fate. ELUKTRICK is indeed a trick of luck; they formed in 2006 after a chance meeting of an aspiring American songwriter and a perspiring Polish guitar wizard in the crowded shadows of a cafe in Krakow, Poland. ELUKTRICK will release their second album Hieroglyphic Apostrophes in Fall/Winter of 2015. l ... more

Track Name: Wall Power
We started building up a wall
We thought that it could never fall
They came and they destroyed it all
There was no writing on the wall, wall, wall

He cut the stone from Lime and hauled
She carried food to feed us all
We stacked and lifted through the fall
Now all the ruble wears us all

It’s time to rise
Grab your spears and knives
Our enemy’s demise
is Nigh…
Common man stand high

We scoured the lands both far and wide
We knew that God was on our side
They from our blades did run and hide
Then came the end of our supplies

As the sun does rise
So we’ll hunt them all our lives
With our children and wives
We’ll fight…
For the wall and for what is right!
Ahh…. Oooh… Ahh (3x/3x/3x)

We are the destroyers of our wall…
Track Name: Make/Believe
Make, Believe

Say what you say, what you wanted to say
Don’t let me get in your way with that heart on your sleeve
So slick with words skipping, mouth slipping, shape shifting
All that image you breath, tell me what do you believe

You said the same thing about an hour ago
It’s just part of the show, you’re just playing Make Believe
You said the same thing just like an hour ago
It’s time to change your show, to something that we can believe

Say what you say as you’re fading away
As your grass turns to hay and you’re down on your knees
Broken hearts pumping, feet jumping, donors dumping
Coz you got in your own way and head nothing left to say

So stay stay away now is all you can say
can’t turn your dirt into clay, cos you had it your own way
And your family starts a-wondering, questions tumbling, cauldron’s bubbling
Hold your feet to the fire, you just mumble that you’re tired

You had another drink a whiskey sour and so
See how you let yourself go, and forgot what you believe
And I said the same thing a hundred hours ago
You could have changed it all you know
Instead you stayed in Make Believe
But the phone it starts ringing and you can’t let it go
You start to answer it slow, all this pain you will receive
Have another drink a vodka tonic to go
See how you let yourself go - Just tell me what do you believe

You even see through yourself
As you’re amassing your wealth
They have a right to know--o-o-o
Thought you’d do it in stealth
While you still have you health
Past that shadow of doubt

If you were true to yourself
you’d have a right to your wealth
Shut down your own show-o-o-o-
I guarantee you’ll receive
More than you can perceive
In your land of Make-Believe!!!

I said the same thing at the start of the show
You could have saved yourself you know but you stayed in Make Believe
So have another drink a whiskey sour and so
Watch how you let yourself go, and forget what you believe
And the phone it keeps ringing and you can’t let it go
So you answer it slow “I never wanted to deceive”
You said the same thing a hundred hours ago
Your broken record is slow and now you’re stuck in Make Believe
Track Name: Go Again
Took a long time to find where you are
Took even longer to know who you are
You had to get it right, get it right

Every now and then you adjust too far
Everyone pushes you just too far
You can’t make it right, make it right

Now you’re trying real hard not to say where u are
Biting your tongue not to say who you are
You can’t even write, even write

Try humming this song
Or just tap along
You begin to belong……..
That’s when you start running

Take time to think about how you just
Wonder Why, that you
Don’t need no reason, aint’ got the time
Well, it takes time to think about
Why you, well, don’t know why
Two change of seasons one change of time
Here we go again
Take time to think about
Well, just who am I?
You know, don’t need a reason
just need some time

You see me round town and know where you are
I see you downtown I know who you are
We couldn’t make it right, get it right

You slowly start backing out of your shell
I see you start talking you’re doing well
I know you feel alright, Feel alright

Now you’re humming along..
… the first time you trust, don’t get left in the dust just shake off the rust you
know that you must
You know the words to the song
...without word faking, we ain’t bond breaking, it’s there for the taking, your star in
the making, the leaves for the raking, the relief for your aching
You can begin to belong……..
That’s. When. You start running

Take time to think about how you just
Wonder Why, that you
Don’t need no reason, aint’ got the time
There you go again
It takes time to think about
How you, well, don’t know why, that you
Ain’t got no reason, ain’t got no rhyme
Here we go again!!!

You know the way to go I know
Just where the lights are low, I’ll show
You won’t be scared to go I know!!!!

It takes time to think about
Why you, well, don’t know why, that you
Ain’t got no reason, ain’t got no rhyme
There you go again

Take time to think about how you just
Wonder Why, that you
Don’t need no reason, aint’ got the time

Take time to think about
Well, just now, who am I?
Well you, don’t need a reason, just need some time
Here we go again!!!!
Come on, come on
Ain’t got no reason, ain’t got no rhyme
And you’re gone again…
Track Name: Disguise
Uncomfortably forgotten in the absence of your mind
You turned around surprised, I could see it in your eyes
Oh… I could read between the lines

Only a worm knows what’s rotten
From the apples’ insides
You turned around surprised, I could read it in your eyes
Oh… I could hear it in your sighs
I could read between the lines
I could see it in your eyes

And your point of view it doesn’t matter
There’s no disguise with the lights on
Yeah you know it’s true, your future matters
Where’s your disguise when the light’s on
Yeah I know it’s true you’re somehow flattered
No more disguise with the lights on now

No disguise with the lights on
Another disguise now the lights off

Again again you turn to a friend and you try to pretend
You go out to start a fight- Oh...I can see- It - In your eyes

It could be anybody any day, anytime and anyways
You line em’ up to knock em’ down I’ll show you in the replay
You try to stop but you can’t, try to do what you can’t
Picking over bones of all those weaker little specimens

You’re anybody any day, any hour many ways
Waste away your weeks to only piss away your weekends
You could try to be a true man, try to be a new man
just Peel. Back. Your. Disguise…
OH… I still see it in your eyes
OH……… I can’t live with your Disguise
Track Name: The Simple Twist
That simple twist of chance will show the answers
Only time will tell if it’s terminal cancer
You try to take walk but I know you’re a dancer
You either run like hell or you just take a stand

You need a luck trick yeah some sympathy
Something eclectic in your symphony
You need a luck trick yeah some harmony
An unexpected cure for your malady
Or maybe a quick fix, yeah some synergy
Something electric in your symphony
You need a luck trick yeah some empathy
Someone who gets you, standing next to…

That simple twist of chance might find you stranded
By the side of the road and you ain’t got no brandy
You left your compass at home yeah it might’ve come in handy
Your navigational system is just corporate branding!
So it’s time to take that walk, well I know you can’t stand it
Then someone comes along, they weren’t part of your plan

Offering a luck trick yeah some sympathy
Something eclectic in your symphony
You need a luck trick yeah some harmony
An unexpected cure for your malad

You need a luck trick yeah some sympathy
Something eclectic in your symphony
You need a luck trick yeah some harmony
An unexpected cure for your malady
You need a quick fix yeah some synergy
Something electric in your symphony
You need a luck trick yeah some empathy
Someone who comes through standing next to you!
Oh……….
Track Name: Sunken Angel
So you liked to say everything
everything at the same time
And you had to meet everyone
No you couldn’t hear a name twice
Then you couldn’t take a day off
A day became a life time
And every photo lens a selfish eye
No surprise you tried to go and
HIDE----- at the right time at the right time
you try and HIDE ---- at the right time at the right time

Breathing Underwater
I’ll find my sunken angel won’t let her go
She flew too close… to the fire
Wings of wax melted ashes can they regrow?

If you hadn’t said everything
everything at the same time
I could have found you anywhere
Anywhere in your space and time
You were trapped within your afterglow
Rubbing elbows with your so and so’s
So I didn’t see you fall apart
I just filled my lungs and
DIVED--- am in time am in time
I had to DIVE --- at the right time at the right time

Breathing Underwater
I’ll save my sunken angel from the undertow
Flying too close to the fire
She burned her outspread wings and they won’t regrow
Fighting the waves I search ever onward
Oxidized, heavy gasses won’t let me go
Now I’m surrounded by her fire
I’ll drown for my sunken angel now that I know
Track Name: The Upside Down
We got the notes from the Underground
But are pockets are inside out
We wander around and around
We know these streets yeah inside out

I can see us growing old
With a garden growing tall
Then your smile starts to decay
And there’s something you try to say

I’m calling you out
You’re pulling me down
Let’s move to the the town
I’m drawn to the sound

You’re something beautiful and free
I close my eyes and count two three
Put my feet on the ground get my head out the clouds
You got me running upside down
You speak a language I can see
A premature philosophy
With your feet in the clouds
And your head in the ground
I caught you running upside down

So we crawled from the underground
to a hole in the old east side
the city spins us around and around
Which way is us up I just can’t decide

I can’t see us growing old
Without a garden growing tall
I slowly start to Say I’m moving
If we’re not moving on

I’m calling you out
It’s time to move on
I can’t deal with this sound
It’s drowning us out!

You’re something beautiful and free
I close my eyes and count two three
Put my feet on the ground get my head out the clouds
You got me running upside down
You speak a language I can see
Hieroglyphic Apostrophes
With your feet in the clouds
And your head in the ground
I caught you running upside down

AHHHHHHH!!!!!!

You’re something beautiful it’s true
I close my eyes and count to two
Put my feet on the ground get my head out the clouds
You got me running upside down
You speak the language of the sun
I close my eyes and count to one
With your feet in the clouds
And your head in the ground
You keep me running upside down!
Track Name: Blue Sea
I say, Lately I’m the only one here
Who could love You
At 8 dear, I’m the only one here
Who could love you
Coz you see blue sea
And now I see you
Bluesy Lucy, you let your colors bleed through

You see Blue Sea where I see you
Blue Sea Lucy, you let them colors bleed through (2x)

I said lately I’ve been running around here
Just to love you
After 8 dear I’ll be waiting up here
To try and love you
If you want to play your games
You better get your love insured
If you’re going to say my name
You know you better make for sure

You see Blue Sea where I see you
Blue Sea Lucy, you let them colors bleed through
You wear them on your sleeves you see
How the glove fits you
This water coloured dream of you
Might just come true

It’s late dear and I’m the only one here
Who can love you
Say it again dear, I’m not sure what I hear
Is it we or just you
I know you’ve seen blue seas
And I’d see them too
Blue sea Lucy, your true color speaks for you



Since you’re fixed on playing games
let me roll a die or two
Since you’ve gone and said my name
I’m gonna see this battle through
Cos you know that - if you see Blue Sea then I’ll seek you
That Blue Sea, Lucy, is where our colors bleed through
So let’s sail those Blue Seas before our time is through
Blue, see, Lucy’s the only color I’m blinded to
Track Name: All/Most
You said almonds they grow on the trees.
They fall the the ground in a breeze
We can tear them apart, rip them apart at the seams

All that you tried to say to me
To keep me afloat on your sea
You said you dreamed me again but in green
Maybe you’re an actor just making a scene
I’m not sure at all, mostly I need to come clean

You know I don’t know what you mean
You’re speaking in tongues so it seems
Maybe in time wait and see

You know I don’t know - why I know I don’t know - if I go I won’t know what you mean

Arise you said to me
As I crash to the floor at your knees
You’re still trying to speak to me

You know I don’t know - what I know I don’t know - I can’t go till I know what we mean

We’re Almost There (3x)
We were almost there

Are we falling apart - Are we coming apart
Are we playing our parts - Are we pulling apart

I saw the almonds there falling from trees
They fall on their sides on their seams
We tear them apart, they ripped us apart
So it seems
Track Name: Animal
We’re gathered all around you, to help you see it through
So lift your head up from the pavement, And turn to see the truth
Just try to breath it in now, let it wash all over you
How they tried to rearrange you, force themselves right on to you

Hold on, forget what they’ve done to you
Let go slip your head from the noose
Hell no, no one can judge for you
All they know is what they hear on the news

You’re like an animal
Their domesticated animal

So put your paws upon the pavement, see your leash on life renewed
They only think that they can own you, just make them think their slipper’s chewed

But what they don’t know
Is that they won’t know
That you will grow
And they’ll grow slow
So you can let go
As they scream No!!!!

So hold on, forget what they’ve done to you
Let go slip your head from the noose
Hell no, no one can judge for you
All they know is what they hear on the news

Head long, into the tunnel in front of you
Don’t you look back, at what’s falling you
Hell no, no one can tie you to
A wall post is where their read their news...

You’re not their animal… Animated animal, Undomesticated animal, Sugar cereal animal, uncaged animal, circus-slave animal, costume animal, Disney Animal
