about

Pygmy Johnson Paris, France

Pygmy Johnson was born in the Cayman Islands. During his childhood between the seashore and the offshore companies, he developed a taste for travel and a sense of secrecy. This mythomaniac « rock crooner » had been travelling through Europe before he came to Paris where he started to compose and play an electric and sexual music, mixing fiction and derision, erotic pulsions and strange melodramas. ... more

Track Name: Motor
MOTOR

Oh baby I feel a little dizzy tonight
I need someone like you to give me a ride
It's getting dark, the streets are empty
Drive me, drive me, drive me

Oh baby we are now facing the night
I need someone like you to hold me tight
It's getting cold, the wind blows harder
Drive me, drive me, drive me

Bring me back home
Don't let me go wrong

Bring me back home
Where I belong

Bring me back home
Please bring me back home
Track Name: My useless woman
My useless woman

She keeps on yawning day by day
Never listen to a word I say
She smokes and drinks and drinks again
She sighs and thinks about the rain
But nothing's ever gonna keep her down

She wears a black dress and her lips are red
Everybody she knew at high school is dead
She walks along the streets of dawn
She doesn't care, she's never fair
But nothing's ever gonna make her scared

My useless woman is all I need
A private monster I have to feed
My useless woman is soft and deep
This is the secret I have to keep

She's burning every unpaid bill
Cleans her gun and takes a pill
She knows the world is just a lie
She never waves to say goodbye
But nothing's ever gonna keep her down

She reads my mind like a open book
She gets what she wants by hook or crook
She's a witch, she's a ghost, she's the devil's host
She doesn't care, she's never fair
Cause nothing's ever gonna make her scared

My useless woman is all I need
A private monster I have to feed
My useless woman is soft and deep
This is the secret I have to keep
Track Name: This is not Hollywood
THIS IS NOT HOLLYWWOD

No super hero
No happy ending
Don't you see that there is nothing

No angel dust
No sex for free
Just rotten fruits from the devil's tree
No chance to grab
No pleasant dreams
What you see is what it seems

No glitter make up
No path to follow
Just wounded flesh and sorrow

This is not
Hollywood
Hollywood
Hollywood

Hey little girl
just watch your step
What you see is what you get

The prince is a wolf
He locked the room
and you drum against the door
boom boom boom

Honey, honey
I'm gonna get you

Honey, honey
I'm gonna get you

This is not
Hollywood
Hollywood
Hollywood

No lights, no camera
No silence on the set
No tape rolling
Track Name: The beauty of it
The beauty of it

You come to me with your doubts and fears
But all I can see are exhausted tears
Running down your cheek
All the goddamn week

When you appear with your hurt and pain
All I can hear is a weak complaint
Your life is so confused
And all I need is a good excuse

I'm going to make you cry
For the beauty of it
I'm going to make you suffer
For the beauty of it

When you tear down, torture and destroy
All I can feel is a delightful joy
Your mind is such a mess
All you need is a god to bless
(Look at me now)

You like to play and you like to cheat
Guilt and remorse make your life complete
Now you've crossed the line
Sweet little liar, I'm gonna make you mine

I'm going to make you cry
For the beauty of it
I'm going to make you suffer
For the beauty of it
I'm going to tell you lies
For the beauty of it
I'm going to hurt you
For the beauty of it
Track Name: Strange little boys
Strange little boys

They look at me with distant eyes
They like to hear the sweetest lies
But deep inside something is broken
Yeah deep inside something is missing

They want to dance, they need to cry
A true romance to live and die for
But somehow everything is sad
Just watch them fall, poor mum and dad

Strange little boys
Moving to the rythm like creepy broken toys
Strange little boys
Strange little boys

Another skin, another kind
Another journey in their mind
But they will never find the way
Afraid to leave, afraid to stay

Strange little boys
Moving to the rythm like creepy broken toys
Strange little boys
Strange little boys

I watch them walking all along the boulevard
When night is falling and the streets become bizarre
Some lost bodies waving in the dark
Glittering puppies who never bite or bark

Strange little boys
Strange little boys
Strange little boys
Strange little boys
Track Name: It's only pain
It's only pain

You know there's something wrong with you
You're not the one you wish to be
In this old world there's nothing new
No mystery oh can't you see ?

It's only pain
It's only pain
It's only pain
It's only pain

You feel so useless and untrue
You wish you could run away and flee
So many doubts without a clue
No mystery oh can't you see ?

It's only pain
It's only pain
It's only pain
It's only pain

And you keep a silver bullet right next to your heart
You never know, you never know
And you hear the distant sound of your life falling apart
You'll walk alone, you'll walk alone
Track Name: Gone
Gone

We fight in vain
Broken / insane
I'm done
I'm done with you
I don't need you
I don't feel you
I'm gone

I'm done with you

We fight in vain
Abel and Caïn
I run
I run from you
Don't call my name
Don't feel no shame

I'm gone
I'm gone for good
Track Name: Queens of salem
Queens of Salem

Queens of Salem
Hear my voice
Heal my body

Queens of Salem
Hear my voice
Heal my soul
Track Name: The stalker
The stalker

I wait for you
Every night on my own
I dream of you
Every night after dawn
My angel
I'm pointless, worthless, hopeless
like a star in a pop corn box

I burglarize
Your empy house when you're gone
I steal your soul
Every night after dawn
My angel
I'm pointless, worthless, hopeless
like a star in a pop corn box
