about

There are those who claim that Erik Hofland, aka dyzack, has made a comeback. They are wrong.
After impressive performances, both in Holland and abroad, 3 studio albums, raving reviews and awards, it was time for a change. From 2005 to 2011 he was composing music for theatre, amongst others for theatre company Vis á Vis.
The reason for the appearance of his new solo album, This mangy soul, is a bizarre and recurring dream.
Dyzack is now approaching the age at which his father committed suicide.
In his dream, as with most dreams, this subject gets a surreal twist: a medical procedure raises his father from the dead.
However, confusion surmounts as he realizes nothing is what it used to be.
This mangy soul is undoubtably dyzack's most intimate record so far.
The album is a collection of songs about loss and existential fear hovering over humans.
But that fear is never the main subject: above all this album is a consolation for our mangy souls.

Track Name: Without blue
Without Blue

The river is up there
Touching the sea
The wind seems easy
and I'm ready

Here's liftoff
I'm floating towards the sun
It feels kinda weird
In my belly, I go on

Now I'm higher
Than any tree
Loose my weight
I'm above here
Without blue
Track Name: Whatever it moves
Whatever it moves

A gasoline haze
Followed by blaze
All thoughts of sin
They're ready to go down

Whatever it moves
It's got to wait
Whatever it moves
I still got this need for love

Aha

Crackle soul, it's too hot to hold
Who'll hurt ones hand, who'll hurt ones bones
A crackle weep, a howling sweep
Common sense
I hate to search for that

Itchy brain, catch that flame
Douse all souls, save those bones

That tickled pink, it's all over my face now
Mask my dreams please all lies falling down
Common sense
I hate to search for that
crumble, fumble I stumble my way
hoping to reach you in some way

Whatever it moves
It's got to wait
Whatever it moves
I still got this need for love
Track Name: Zombie trail
What if a second
Was all that you had to
Make my day
All that you care for
Put it in the grave
And dig it up again

What if a second
Was all that you had to
Make a move
Do a rhumba baby
Ballroom music
It's in my head
(The living dead)

Face up high
and walk straight the line
Do a little hey hey
watch your zombie trail
Face up high
And walk straight the line
Do a little hey hey
Watch your zombie trail
You think you caught it
The holy Grail

What if a second
Was all that you had to
Make my day
All that you care for
Put it in the grave
And dig it up again

now face up high
and walk straight the line
Do a little hey hey
watch your zombie trail
Face up high
And walk straight the line
Do a little hey hey
Watch your zombie trail
You think you caught it
The holy Grail
Track Name: This beautiful place
I'll show you
This beautiful place
I know
Now follow me
Around that corner
And you will see

Maybe
Maybe we will kiss
Maybe
You will go, go with me reveal our
love
Hand in hand
We turn and we turn
We turn and we turn
While we are looking down at the world upside down
I hold you

When you let me go
When we both not know
What will happen
Don't let me go lone
Imagine this
Your soul at ease
You rest
We will rest in peace

I'll show you
This beautiful place
I know
Now follow me
I'll show you

We turn and we turn
We turn and we turn
While we are looking down at the world upside down
I hold you
Track Name: There's the surface
This water is the air,
I wish I could live in.
Together with my friends,
the whale & the fish
Just wonder if I ever,
will breath again
I don't wanna drown,
before I know

There was a crack
and a high screeching noise.
Oh yes now I remember,
it all too well.

Looking at that movie,
a flash before my eyes.
Spirit made instant.
a pearl filled with time.

That's my life,
I'm looking at.
Oh yes now I remember,
it all too well

And it makes me mad, for what I have left behind,
there's the surface.

There's water all around me,
a pity that I'm human.
Ropes around my ankles,
weighing me down.

Grab for a knife,
that I can't find.
Oh yes now I remember,
it all too well.

And it makes me mad, for what I have left behind,
there's the surface.
Track Name: You saw it
You saw it happen you said it before
All that was scary the twist we were in
I thought of dying & the things i'd missed
You said it was just a tease from the wind

Something wrong, what have I done
all I though when we tumbled down

You saw it happen you said it before
Stop fooling me, I was not that wrong
The end is there well you have to admit
I'll give you this it's a choice for some bliss

You're not that
Thankful for the
Moments of love
When we tumbled down


We were as high
as a human can be
that it was risky
we knew
Track Name: You make my day
You make my day
It's all that I care for
No matter what
You think of me
You might know me
As a dear friend
You might know all
the tricks of the trade

Please wait your turn
not move a muscle
Please keep your voice down
And save it for as long

When the moon hits the earth
And the earth kisses back
When you think you've waited
Until you're at your wit's end
When the night becomes day
After a too big laugh

You may say whatever you want about me

I'll make your day
That's my job hey
No matter what
I might think of you
I used to know you
As a dear friend
I used to know you
as the enemy

Please hold your horses
your movement is not that strong
Please keep your voice down
And save it for as long

When you think you've waited
Until you're at your wit's end
When the night becomes day
After a too big laugh

You may say whatever you want about me

When the moon hits the earth
And the earth kisses back
When you think you've waited
Until you're at your wit's end
When the night becomes day
After a too big laugh

You may say whatever you want about me
Track Name: Faded to soul
I'll have to embrace
It was a stitch in time
I'll have to inhale
it did not save nine

All that I retain
Your image, it complains
That it's almost
Lost

Out of sight,
out of my mind
A replaceable piece in
This heart I have

For a life goes on
Where nothing seems wrong
For me or
For somebody else

Faded to soul
That's what you are
Faded to soul
Between the clouds somewhere
Faded to soul
That's where you are
Faded to soul

Stupidity,
that's in my mind
I'll never forget
And I'll never ditch

Those memories
I was way too young
To act as I
should have done

Faded to soul
That's what you are
Faded to soul
Between the clouds somewhere
Faded to soul
That's where you are
Faded to soul
Track Name: The race
I'll have to race
Trespass on the case
I've lost nothing yet

Wonder how I do
A wish for love from a fool
Maybe some will be hurt

I'll have to race (getting ready)
Snatch the rat by the tail ( I'm not that steady )
Gonna climb that hill ( for all I want to get )

Nothing will ease my need for the rush I'm hooked on
I want to get it higher than anyone has ever gone

I'm on top of it all
