about

Mad Chicken's debut album was entirely recorded at home, using non professional studio gear. The band recorded everything by itself and called their friend Michel Custódio to help in the mixing process. Half of the songs were created by the end of 2013, when Mad Chicken was formed, while the rest was composed during 2015, after new drummer joined the band.

Thanks to our families and friends. Special thanks to Wender Salviano (for the recorder); friends from Cassino Driver, Tempos Remotos, River Act, Todos Os Céus and Coletivo Nexalgum (for the support); Nancy and Paulo Roberto (for the keyboards); Carlos Eduardo Lucas (for the mics); Lunara Leto (for Abstract Ocean); and Michel Custódio (for the work, ideas and barbecue).

Track Name: This Ain't A Dream
Try not to drop it now
It's just too precious
you can't imagine how

This is so fragile
This is so nice
It makes us happier
It makes us fly

Fly, lie, die

Let us in disguise
Let it hipnotize
Feel the heat inside

This is so hostile
This ain't a dream
It makes you feel the world
Beneath your skin
Track Name: All I Know Is What I See
All I know is what I see
All I see is what I know
All I want is what I need
All I need is what I want

So let me keep yourself to me
I'll let you keep myself to you
All I want is up to me
All I need is up to you

So let me go further more
Let me knock on your door

All I say is what I mean
All I mean is what I say
All your love is what I need
On my bed you should stay

So let me keep yourself to me
I'll let you keep myself to you
All I want is up to me
All I need is up to you

Let me go further more
Let me knock on your door

This and that
All of these
It just matches when you're with me

All I know is what I see
All I see is what I know
All I want is what I need
All I need is what I want

So let me keep yourself to me
I'll let you keep myself to you
All I want is up to me
All I need is up to you

So let me go further more
Let me knock on your door... yeah

This and that
All of these
It just matches when you're with me
Track Name: Chicken Thieves
Yell amen, amen, amen
Won't save you from hell at all
Yell amen won't take you anywhere

God is watching you right now
He knows that you've just hung up that call

Yell amen, amen, oh geez
Only will hurt your fucking knees
Well amen won't save those chicken thieves

God is watching you right now
Don't try taking those pills
Human kind ain't that cute
They would kill you when in bad mood

Oh right!
Track Name: Chicken Shit
Now it's your time
Don't you like it honey?
Won't you try start running?
Keep on laughing at it?

Can't you see me coming
Won't you stop staring
Won't you tell me you love me?
Won't you tell me you want me?

Can't you see that I'm right here?
About to pull all of your skin

Now this sign is telling
Now the sky is falling
We have reached limit
Ate the chicken shit

Gave our time and secrets
Gave our life and bodies
Won't you stay here with me?
Won't you stay here with me?

Can't you see that I'm right here?
About to pull all of your skin

Can't you see that I'm right here?
About to pull all of your skin (2x)
Track Name: Happy Chicken, Sad Chicken
One more chicken, no more crying
I've been wasting all my life
In search of a good place to spend my time

Sadly my lifetime ran away
There's no such a place where I can stay
Now I'm lost in darkness and forgetfulness
Can't see the end of my own way

But suddenly I found someone
Who gave me love peace and fun

She is my love
She has my soul
She is so pretty
But she's a ghost
Track Name: Why The Chicken Cross The Street?
Finally I've quitted my job
And now I have free noons
I've got a chicken straight and cool
And now I'll enjoy my freedom

Why the chicken cross the street?
Maybe to meet a rooster
Maybe she is in love with me
I don't think I'm a loser

Now I don't know if I can be
The one that might she hopes
Chicken crossing the street
Running from those goats

Why the chicken cross the street?
Maybe to meet a rooster
Maybe she is in love with me
I don't think I'm a loser

Now the game of all my days
Became a chasing for good names
She made me laugh, she made me cry
She made me ill but she can't fly

Now the game of all my days
Became a chasing for good names
She made me laugh, she made me cry
She made me ill but she can't fly
Track Name: Space Chimp
Traveling through space and time
Down on earth I knew the human kind

They are burning their own home
Killing themselves to live today
Future is getting so confused
Kids will have to find a way

I flew around, from south to north
They say they are rich
Just saw the poor

They are burning their own home
Killing themselves to live today
Future is getting so confused
Kids will have to find a way
Track Name: Silly Question
Gotta tell you a story
Oh when I was young
They asked me a question
I didn't know the answer

It's a simple question
Who came first?
Was the egg or the chicken?
But I don't know the answer

What a silly question
That I don't know the answer
Somebody help me with this comprehension

They tried to explain me
But it ain't make any sense
Some of them blame DNA
And some blame the science

What a silly question
That I don't know the answer
Somebody help me with this comprehension
Track Name: Purple Blood
A bottle full of life
A drink to the knights
Its plastic body and dark content
You swallow reality and stop to think

Wild, a purple blood (2x)

At night with some folks
We like to party, we like this blood
It's a different color but it warms you up
We can't stop to drink the purple blood

Wild, a purple blood (2x)

Purple blood (2x)

Wild, a purple blood (2x)
Track Name: Invisible Matters
Fight or stop to rescue?
Hide or run to meet you?

How may we treat you?
Cause all you seem to believe are invisible matters

Why does it happen?
Why you pretend you're blind

How may we treat you?
Cause all you seem to believe are invisible matters
Track Name: She Is So Pretty
I got a chicken
She is so pretty
I got a chicken
It doesn't matter

Aw aw aw aw aw (2x)

I got a chicken
She is so pretty
You should get one too
She is a chicken

I got a chicken
She is so pretty
I got a chicken
It doesn't matter

Aw aw aw aw aw (2x)

I got a chicken
She is so pretty
You should get one too
She is a chicken

She is so pretty

She is so pretty
You should get one too

It doesn't matter

Aw aw aw aw aw (2x)
