about

Zeke Virant Belgium

Hi. I'm from Georgia, and I'm living in Belgium. I try to write stylistically diverse music, including pop songs, orchestral suites, chamber music, electro dance--you know, it's that scrappy, "I'll write whatever-I-can-think of" sort of affair.

Track Name: How much corn can you put up your nose?
How much corn can you put up your nose?
Track Name: Baby Don't Cry
Baby don't cry
It's alright, it's all alright
Baby don't cry, cry, cry, cry

Baby don't cry, don't cry (the final moment is you)
And all these tears,
It's goodbye

I love you more than you could ever know
Does it show?
Does it show?
Track Name: Whistlin' in the Wind
Well we've all whistled in the wind
Those long nights where you never could find a friend
It's hard to be a young man facing the streets
With nobody
Track Name: not Walt Whitman
The ocean is foaming and pretty
And I never thought it mattered how to say it

That's not Walt Whitman, it's a park
Just a part of me
And there's never hallelujah
Just...

And when I get home,
I don't want to hear "What's Going On"
"What's Happening Brother" (What's happening brother?)

Cause that's not music, music,
That's a job,
Just some part of me,
And never hallelujah
Just goddamn
Track Name: The Road
Well, the highways
And the byways
Cutting through our town
Then before too long
The road becomes a home
And our children are stolen away

Well the chain gangs
And the choo-choo trains
Drove the farmers out of town
And now all the boys are gone
The road stole our sons
Stealing the songs our fathers loved

Now I'm not the kind of guy
Who has to have a cry every time he skins his knee
But the road it came to town and it turned my life around
And now, now I all I ever see--

Is those highways
And those byways
That rotten, bloated street
People ask "What's wrong?"
I say, "The future came and gone,
and you know something, man, I think we were beat."
Track Name: Apple Pie
Hey sweetie pie, you're the love of my eye
I want to make love to you like I eat my apple pie

First I peel all your skin off and cut you apart
Put you in a pan and cook your heart

Girl you know it's true
Sugar and spice and everything nice
Yes, I do, I do
I really love you
Track Name: The Wrinkler
They call me the Wrinkler of the seven seas
They call me the Devil of your ancient need
They call me a freight train burning into your heart
They call me the Wrinker, the two-faced lark

The fellows say "Wrinkler" (Hey Wrinkler!) when I'm asleep at the wheel
The ladies say "Wrinkler" (Hey Wrinkler!) when I'm copping a feel

They call me the Wrinkler of the seven seas
They call me your mother cause I've got a disease
They call me a freight train burning into your heart
They call me the Wrinker, the two-faced lark
Track Name: There You Are!
Slowly, the pain in our hearts becomes you and me
So when you sing, sing sad songs,
Shitty memories

You know that sometimes words they don't work
You know that sometimes nothing's all you feel your worth
And everything that you say is painful and revealing

But there you are, here I am
Shitty memories
There you are, here I am,
Here I am

You know that sometimes words they don't work
You know that sometimes nothing's all you feel your worth
And who cares if everything you say is painful and revealing
Track Name: Love at the Beach
Maybe it's everyone but me in love already
Maybe it's everything I've said but never done
Maybe it's sitting here alone in this room
Dreaming of love at the beach, at the beach

Did you say?
Every day's a beautiful day?
Every day's a big new wave?
Every wave's a ripping ride?

And everyone I've loved is dead to me
And everyone I know is beautiful in love already

Every day's a beautiful day!
Every day's a big new wave!
Every wave's a ripping ride!

Did you say?
Every day's a beautiful day?
Every day's a big new wave?
Every wave's a ripping ride?

Surf's up!
Track Name: At the Ocean
We've been together for so long I don't know how long
And we'll be together forever,
Baby, I said baby

And when you call me up late at night
It's a long distance telephone call
I just got one question for you darling

Just one question
Just one answer, please
Who are you talking about
You or me

Cause I say I love you
And you say I love you too
What does it mean to love
When love don't come through

At the ocean
I will be
At the ocean
You and me

Now that we're older
Now that we're on our own
What does it mean to be in love
And all alone

Cause you say I love you
And I say I love you too
What does it mean to love
When love don't come through

At the ocean
I will be
At the ocean
You and me

What you are
What you are are (repeat a lot of times)

Understand!
Contain yourself.
Track Name: Home
Home
In the country
On the highway
In the real world

And I
I feel so lonely
Like a young man
Like a young girl

And I want to tell you
How to feel
But I just don't know

And I
Feeling lonely
In the homeland
In the real world
In the world
Track Name: Teenage Bride
Yeah you, wanna be my teenage bride
Wanna go, wanna dance all night
Wanna die, wanna be my wife

And I, I don't wanna live no lie
Wanna die, wanna go outside at night
Wanna go out

Honey, honey, honey hey
I want to dance the night away
Lady baby, it's all right
I want to dance away the night

Yeah you, wanna be my teenage bride
Wanna go, wanna dance all night
Wanna die, wanna be my wife

I wanna go outside
I wanna go outside at night
I wanna teenage bride
I wanna be a teenage bride
I want love!
Track Name: I feel beautiful tonight
I feel beautiful tonight
I wanna go outside and shine an ocean blue
And say I love you here tonight
I wanna go outside

At the ocean
Nothing's real now darling
Everything is real
