NEW VIDEO: FOKOFPOLISIEKAR | KOMMA



In the wake of their catalytical music video release for Parkiebank, herfs 2017, FOKOFPOLISIEKAR is back with something very special. The band is proud to premiere the music video for Komma, only the third ballad that Fokofpolisiekar has ever written.

Komma is a departure from the band’s usual sound. For the first time the sound is completely stripped down to just a piano and Francois van Coke’s voice.

This song is often singled out as a favourite on Fokofpolisiekar’s latest album, Selfmedikasie, but it’s not common knowledge that it came close to never being written. The band, at first, only intended to produce 10 songs for the album, but during the recording period Johnny de Ridder sat down behind the piano and Komma was born.

Komma Lyrics:

in jou gesig is ’n sterrestelsel

ek is ’n kind wat na die sterre kyk

as jy jou hande deur my hare vryf

in die donker

voel ek weerloos

voel ek weer klein

as die storm weer begin sanik

die berg brand

en die boom omwaai

en die vlamme aan my gordyne lek

dan skryf ek vir ons ’n nuwe plek

want as die weer weer kom

sal dit kom om te bly

ek ken die skaamte en die kwesbaarheid

ek onthou ons het hardop gebid

en ek onthou ons het in ons skoolklere gevry

so ek skryf maar vir my ’n wegkruipplek

want ek weet die weer sal weer kom om te bly

maar

komma

kom maar

komma

kom maar weer

hierdie keer is ek gereed

ek sal ’n byl in my hand hê

partykeer moet jy

iets oopbreek

ek ken van in die hoek geskop word en gil

jou teen die ruit stamp dat ons albei kraak

ek skryf maar vir my ’n wegkruipplek

daar’s ’n berg houtpiele wat brand in pleks van my verstand

maar

komma

kom maar

kom maar binne

weer

hierdie keer is ek gereed

in jou gesig is ’n sterrestelsel

ek is ’n kind wat na die sterre kyk

as jy jou hande deur my hare vryf

in die donker

voel ek weerloos

voel ek weer klein
