about

Sweet Gum Tree Angers, France

Both a beautiful, romantic adventure and an unnerving trip through a mind crowded with troubled creatures, singer-songwriter Arno Sojo’s new LP confirms that he is amongst those who still believe that music and words can touch the soul, by way of sincerity, constant reinvention and fine craftsmanship. ... more

Track Name: Glow Ants
Stargazer in a wilderness
Of lattice masts and litter bins and fake success
Daydreamer, out of a thousand ways
To make a fool of oneself, this is what I picked

And from a tower’s height, late at night
Down there in the distance
Cars are glow ants, glow ants
Queuing in search of some light
Glow ants, on familiar trails
Maybe on the wrong track

Why be just a number, I couldn’t carry that load
An item ready to be scanned, doomed as a barcode
Early loner in a schoolyard microcosm
Teased and singled out where souls begin to blossom

And from a tower’s height, late at night
Down there in the distance
Cars are glow ants, glow ants
Queuing in search of some light
Glow ants, on familiar trails
Maybe on the wrong track

Oh there must be more than material ways
To our beautiful ephemeral days

And from a tower’s height, late at night
Down there in the distance
Cars are glow ants, glow ants
Queuing in search of some light
Glow ants, on familiar trails
Maybe on the wrong track
Track Name: Pictures From Utopia
You may now turn off the daylight
And turn on the night
Switch off your left brain
And switch on the right
Let the alpha waves in
And pictures from Utopia
Like a prelude to slumber
All vanishing criteria


Let go of your ritualized space
Just close your eyes and rest your case
Sensorial calm, subconscious pace
Find yourself leaving with no trace
Bring silver moon chips from that remote place
Stringed as some transcendental necklace
For the one you love


You may now turn off the daylight
And turn on the night
Switch off your left brain
And switch on the right
Let the alpha waves in
And pictures from Utopia
Like a prelude to slumber
All vanishing criteria
Track Name: Little Luxury
Strange beauty permeates me
Little luxury
To whoever cares to see
Rapture comes easy

Spare me the harsh discord
Of your skeptical grating jar
I never wished that I could be
Cynical as you are
And I’m not

Bittersweet flavours thrill me
Fringe’s ecstasy
Staggered by authenticity
Pure pleasure for free

Between how things should be
And the way they really are
Same old discrepancies
As you wear your snear like a scar

Unceasingly moving through me
Poetic electricity
The laws of love and artistry
Always defying gravity

Between how things should be
And the way they really are
Same old discrepancies
As you wear your snear like a scar
Spare me the harsh discord
Of your skeptical grating jar
I never wished that I could be
Cynical as you are
And I’m not
