NITS - TENT
Paradiso (small hall) Amsterdam, 14-2-2014.

He spent his nights on camping sites
Can this suntan make him a man

He's in one of the tents
She's in one of the tent tent tent

Camping gaz
Can can vas
Pins and poles
Tins in holes

You're frightened of my freckles love
Can this suntan make him a man

Camping gaz
Can can vas
Radio noise

Here she comes, there she goes
I know she's in one of the tents





NITS - PORT OF AMSTERDAM
Paradiso (main hall) Amsterdam, 22-3-2014.



Ik knew MASK was easy to perform at once, that's why I choose this sensitive song which also reflects my daily live. 
Of course I played nothing rather than The Dream together with Robert Jan,
but then we had to rehearse a few times before. 

ROBERT JAN STIPS & BEREND TOL - MASK
V.A.K. (Centrum voor de Kunsten) Delft

Cover up the pretty faces, cover up the eyes and the lips and the things we like
Under a mask

Oh what a feeling it is, oh what a feeling it is to be alive
Under a mask

Cover up the angry faces, cover up the hate and the cries and the things we fear
Under a mask

Oh what a feeling it is, oh what a feeling it is to be unknown
Under a mask

I wanna know, is this really your face?
I wanna know, are that really your tears?
I wanna know, if I'm looking at the replica

Cover up the ugly faces, cover up the tears and the smiles and the things we hide
Under a mask

Oh what a feeling it is, oh what a feeling it is to be alone
Under a mask

I want to be alone
I want to stay here on my own
In the middle of nowhere
I hide my body and soul there
And now it's your turn to strip bare

Cover up slowly,
Cover up slowly,
Under a mask,
Under a mask.
