young coconut water

from ulu by leslie helpert



This is the first track I made with Dave Bianchi in Barcelona. The story of this song was part inspired by the spirit of a French film written by Yann Samuel.
Here, young coconut water refers to WWII when coconut water (in the south pacific) was used as substitution for IV and transfusion in dire situation, as it is reputably almost identical to human plasma.
I recorded the beginning vocal through a Nokia cell phone walking down the streets of Spain.


it just so happened
when we were each others.
we pricked our fingers
and became blood brothers.
it was an accident really
we were kids
climbing on barbed wire.

to go feed the colts
little bombs on fire.

and then again,
when we were older.
by coincidence met
ice climbing frozen boulders.

we both anchored the pick ax
and by surprise
it struck simultaneously
in each of our sides.

and so this time
we became blood sisters.

I'm your type A
when you're needing transfusion
and you're not to blame
it's both our confusion.

I, too, walk away
like god's born again daughter
like fresh pumped in the vein
young coconut water.

Innocent and Ignoble.

Through all adventure
I've learned a score.
It's not your lover
You've been searching for.
No matter the carriage
The wheels spoke aloud
as you drive'd
this is
not about your lover,
it's not about your lover.

It's your genius you're longing to Keep Alive.
It's your genius you're longing to keep alive.
