De nieuwste song van Pieter, uitgevoerd met Tak&Band. Dit keer ‘All The Way’. Een LGBTQIA+ song, van een ouder aan andere ouders en iedereen die zich betrokken voelt bij dit onderwerp.

Nieuwe song / new song: All The Way van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP.

An LGBTQIA+ song, from a parent to parents and everyone who cares


Songtekst all the way- Pieter Tak

You know this and I know that
all those things go round in my head
Like sweet water that reaches the sea
a gap between you and me

I'm all colored while you believe
that your faith is love but grief
Why you hide your hair and face
your eyes shine with so much grace

Gay, straight, all the way

You know this and I know that
don't you tell me what is good or bad
Living long enough
to differ love from hate
in the echo of the past we're too late

Now your boy loves
his neighbors son
and your answer is a religious gun
Why on earth would it be so bad
to love your neighbor instead

Gay, straight, all the way

You know this and I know that
see them happy wearing pink or red
Brackish water
mingles near the shores
but his lonesome mother ignores

You won't see them
as a token of your hate
but my boy is welcome with his date
I give them every chance in my life
give him all my bless as with a wife

Gay, straight, all the way

You know this and I know that
some of you would see them dead
Work together shaking hands
live together
staying neighbors
becoming friends

In tijden waar er buiten niet veel te doen is gaat er binnen van alles met je aan de haal…

In times when there is not much to do outside, everything will happen inside…

Speciale dank aan de studenten van BUAS Production House, Breda University of Applied Sciences, die op creatieve manier de song clip bij Toes hebben gemaakt. Daniel (te zien in de clip), Fien, Oana, Geelika, Isabel, Dobby én coördinator Danny: dank voor deze fijne samenwerking!

Songtekst Toes – Pieter Tak

Instead of an escape through the secret tunnel
I’m laying on the floor
doin’ a whole lot of nothing, nothing, nothing
and I’m not even bored

My naughty hands like to meet the little ends of my feet
and there’s no objection to be heard
although there’s a lot of them hangin’ around
and all of them alert

But suddenly they start crawling all over the place
like ants they’re rollin’ up and down my legs
I try to push them into my colored socks
but all they do is rag

And the reason why they’ve got to stay down there
is to fill up the space in my shoes to wear
and in the winter they’re cold
while the rain is pourin’ down

Auoew…. stupid… ! you stepped on my toes !
and the fat dancer is punched on the nose
well he hit me on an eye so fast that I froze
Oh, bloody toes

Well, in an hour or two I had them back into my boots
they even tried to change places
I had to scream till they dropped off
with angry faces

They’re not so long as my fingers plus nails
they’re not that clever as well
but who will read the lines in the darkness for them
they can’t even spell

So I’m trying to suggest to a meeting in spring
then we can hit the problem very close
In secret we plan a plan for a plan and it’s called
The Year Of The Toes !

De nieuwste song van Pieter, uitgevoerd met Tak&Band. Dit keer ‘Step Outside’. “We gaan weer naar buiten, maar ben je nog dezelfde en doe je nog dezelfde dingen als eerst ?” Wat doet de song met jou? Luister en laat het Tak&Band weten!

Nieuwe song / new song: Step Outside van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP.

We gaan weer naar buiten, maar ben je nog dezelfde en doe je nog dezelfde dingen als eerst ?

We’re going out again, but are you still the same and doing the same things as before?


Songtekst step outside – Pieter Tak

After a dark
and crazy winter
summer is coming soon
And when the nights
get shorter each day
the sun is coming too

Baby, you will warm your feet
in the sand
Feel the rhythm of relief and
dance with the band

All along we
step outside
opening for each other
Some will see
their family
or try along to bother

Babe, you'll stand by the waterfall
in the light
Put your dark glasses on
cause it's too bright

Step outside, step outside
step outside your door
Grab your life, grab your life
grab your life once more

Step outside, step outside
step outside your door
Grab your life, grab your life
not just like before

Will you be gone
on the carousel of fun and desire
Picking up your life
of the consuming fire
No caution is
shining in your eyes
What on earth can attack us
by surprise

After a dark
and crazy winter
summer is coming soon
And when the nights
get shorter each day
the sun is coming too

Baby, you will warm your feet
in the sand
Feel the rhythm of relief and
dance with the band

Step outside, step outside
step outside your door
Grab your life, grab your life
not just like before

Een extra song song van Pieter, uitgevoerd met Tak&Band. Dit keer ‘Put Him In The Can’. Een song die gemaakt móest worden. Wat doet de song met jou? Luister en laat het Tak&Band weten!

Nieuwe song / new song: Put Him In The Can van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP. “Who’s dog is pissing on the roses of the free?”


Songtekst PUT him in the can – Pieter Tak

Put him in the can
Put him in the can
Put him in the can
It's a mean one

Dog was raised by a stone cold face
at the other end of the rope
Eyes are bulging and
teeth are flashing
Is he on steroids or dope

Fooling around on other ones ground
pissing on the roses of the free
Shitting on beds of the innocents
when will he shit on me

Put him in the can...
It's a mean one

Oh, it seems a harmless dog
just a playful pal
But the moment he sinks
his teeth in you
you never can tell

Oh, it's a shameless dog
a stupid grin for the bite
And the day before he comes to you
he barks all night

Put him in the can...
It's a mean one

New Song: Old Edges

Nieuwe maand, nieuwe song van Pieter, uitgevoerd met Tak&Band. Dit keer ‘Old Edges’, met gastmuzikant Wim Dictus op accordeon. Wat doet de song met jou? Luister en laat het Pieter weten!

Nieuwe song Old Edges van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP. Een lied over kleine gewoontes, eigenaardigheden en oude valkuilen…

New song Old Edges from the latest Tak&Band EP. A song about little habits, quirks and old pitfalls…


Op accordeon: Wim Dictus

Songtekst old edges – Pieter Tak

Oh, you old edges
were you not hidden for so long
I almost overslept
the setback we are dealing with
intending to get strong

Oh, my annoying habits
were you just out to play
I seemed to be awake
there was no sign of you
so I was determent to slip away

Was I losing my doubt
denying fear and pain
Or was I just dreaming
to free myself, in vain

Oh, you sharp rascals
I'm tripping over the wires you've set
I've been caught before
in the scheme of the dumb and deaf
it showed me mirrors instead

Was I losing my doubt
denying fear and pain
Or was I just dreaming
to free myself, in vain

Oh, my pointy pitfalls
why did you insist on coming back
We've struggled so many times
on every period of this life
Please go before
please go before
please go before
I finish this track

Nieuwe song Wake Up van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP.

New song Wake Up from the latest Tak&Band EP.


Songtekst wake up – Pieter Tak

Hey, wake up, you
we must be on fire
Hey, it's for you too
we must be on fire

During troubles
we act like one
so why can't we
together move on

We all saw
which work does matter
pay them well
and get that done

Hey, wake up, you
we must be on fire
Hey, it's for you too
we must be on fire

If you own the land
my friend
make it healthy
for our sake

Shareholders
put your shoulders
under the load, now
give us a brake

Anything
that you can do
could make a change
you can deliver

Give a hand
or maybe two
all these drops
will form a river

Hey, wake up, you
-If the water rises
we should all be sound and safe
-Young inventors see the worries
help to solve it just be brave
-Fight polluting, global warming
hunt the poisoners out of their caves
-you're not alone
so we should make some clashing waves

Anything
that you can do
could make a change
you can deliver

Give a hand
or maybe two
all these drops
will form a river

Hey, wake up, you
we must be on fire
Hey, it's for you too
we must be on fire

Hey, wake up, you
we must be on fire
Hey, it's for you too
we must be on fire

New Song: Silence Is A Privilege

Nieuwe song Silence Is A Privilege van de nieuwste Tak&Band EP. Over de cultuur van ‘de andere kant op kijken’.

New song Silence Is A Privilege from the latest Tak&Band EP. About the culture of ‘looking the other way’.


Songtekst Silence Is A Privilege – Pieter Tak

De treffende tekst van deze song is van Kevin Groen.

They were sexually harassing women, 
but I’m not a woman so I kept quiet.
They were making fun of disabled people,
but I’m able-bodied so I walked away.
They were intimidating Muslims,
but I’m an atheist so I looked the other way.

They were scolding poor people
for not working harder,
But I’m not poor so I counted my blessings.
Blessings

They were asking for help,
but I managed on my own so why should I care...

They were discriminating PoC,
but I’m white so I ignored it.
They were physically assaulting LGBTI people,
but I’m a straight person so I kept to myself.
They were telling foreigners to go back home,
but I’m a local so I remained silent.

They were telling foreigners to go back home
but I’m a local so I remained silent
Silent

They were asking for help,
but I managed on my own so why should I care...

New Song: Coconut Blog

‘Coconut Blog’ is de derde song van het nieuwe Tak&Band album, dat nog titelloos is. I like the way you are!

Nieuwe song van de nieuwste -nog titelloze- Tak&Band EP: Coconut Blog.

New song from the latest -still untitled- Tak&Band EP: Coconut Blog.


Songtekst Coconut Blog – Pieter Tak

Don't grow into a coconut, baby
cause the skin is too hard
Don't grow into a coconut, baby
I like the way you are

Don't change into a mannequin
that shield ain't much of a treat
Don't change into a mannequin, girl
I'm still longing for your sweet

Keep the color of a peach
a coconut girl is beyond my reach
a couple of old jeans will do
well I wonder how I get through
these fillers and your silicone... oops

Don't grow into a hashtag, baby
conversation is on the run
Don't grow into a hashtag, baby
I remember when we both had fun

Don't change into a blog girl
I' m longing for real friends to meet
Don't change into a blog girl, girl
your book of faces won't be complete
please stay the way you are
a 24/7 blog is a way too far
I won't miss an open screen in my bed
Well I wonder how I get through
these blogs and hashtags inside of you

Will a web of needlework
soon cover your shoulder
will it remain a sleeve of pretty flowers
when you are getting older
and your flag flies
in colors of the fall
will it fill your notebook at all

Will it fill your notebook of life

New Song: Most of the Night

‘Most of the Night’ is de tweede song van het nieuwe Tak&Band album, dat nog titelloos is. Life carries on.

Nieuwe song van de nieuwste -nog titelloze- Tak&Band EP: Most of the Night.

New song from the latest -still untitled- Tak&Band EP: Most of the Night.


Songtekst Most of the Night – Pieter Tak

I went out walking
I did too much talking
My head was spinning all the way

I went out walking
My mind was drifting
Cause you told me you was leaving today

You said we're done
Now the cold times are coming
And loneliness feeds the light

I feel the tears come dripping
And the time will be ticking
Most of the night

Well, I went back into trouble
My sight felt double
When I hit the pavement at the door

I was bruising my knee
Couldn’t turn the damned key
I was sinking right through the floor

I ran into Joe, Ugly Nope and Karl
for a beer and some shots
They surely know the ride down

Nope slapped me on the shoulder
and drew me a line
I felt so hopelessly fine

Now I’m back on my feet
Though the troubled days ain’t over
But better mornings arrive

I pull the curtains open
Cause I want it to happen
Determined to stay alive

Cause when you said we're done
Life carries on
Although loneliness dimmed the light

I often feel tears come dripping
And time is still ticking
Most of the night

I often feel tears come dripping
And time is still ticking
Most of the night
