Lyrics

Marlboro Man
I'm your cigarette man
I'm doing the best I can
I'm your cigarette man
I'm doing the best I can
You might find me on your TV-screen
Or on the cover of a magazine
But I'll be sitting on a horse
With a smoke of course

Coz I'm the Marlboroman
- I'm the Marlboroman
Coz I'm the Marlboroman
- I'm the Marlboroman

I just stand here in the shade
I'm american made
Coz I'm tough and I'm mean
I'm the american dream
Do as I: Inhale, don't blow it!
You'll get the feeling & you know it...
When the smoke gets to your brain...
It makes you quite insane...

Coz I'm the Marlboroman
- I'm the Marlboroman
Coz I'm the Marlboroman
- I'm the Marlboroman
Call of the Wild
The night they took him to the graveyard
It was moonlight; call of the wild
They forced him to bury his father
Oh boy, he was only a child
He grew older, meaner and vicious
And the glance of his eyes got malicious
He thought about revenging his father
He sweared he would turn out as another
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild

He travelled on trail wide and narrow
He would draw and shoot at any shadow
Checking the decks with his back to the wall
Hiding the tracks of his lonely call
The blood on his hands was still dripping
Hunting by instinct and no sleeping
He remembered the face of the gunman
Who slaughtered his dad the same evening
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild

The night they took him to the graveyard
It was moonlight; call of the wild
They forced him to bury his father
Oh boy, he was only a child
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Call of the wild
Come on, call of the wild
It's the call of the wiiiiild
C-c-call of the wild
Riding With Sue
We went out riding
Me and my girlfriend Sue
Riding through the desert
Where noone ever gets through
We got off our horses
And laid down in the sand
Suddenly I noticed
That we were in Disneyland..

- And I was looking at the sky
Looking at the *** above
Thinking 'bout the days
When we were still in love
Sweet, sweet, sweet harmless love...

We saw the hills in the distance
Their shape was coming clear
Her voice was full of tension
As she whispered in my ear:
- If you take me there I'll make you fly!!
(She petted my hand and she gave me the eye...)
- We'll be closer to God - Oh me, oh my
I didn't know she was going to die!

Chorus

We was heading for the mountains
And we started climbing up...
But when we reached the viewpoint
Sue decided to drop - Aaaaaaaargh
She fell for an hour
Turning 'round and 'round like a wheel
And when she hitted the bottom
I knew my heart would never heal!!!

Now I'm looking at the stars...
It's After Dark
I'm looking at the sky, I'm trying
Not to cry, coz' it's over
The're turning down the light
It's late now
Wave the last
Goodbye...

Coz it's after dark now
And Disneyland is closed
We've been served
Icecold beer
And Walt is our host

It's after dark now
And Disneyland is closed...
The party is over
The night is here
Let's bring out a toast...
Isn't That Wild
I was driving home late 1 Saturday night
Suddenly I saw this flashing light
A big hole in the ground
I thought it was a lie
It was a satellite It fell out of the sky

Now I'm 40 feet below
Running my own show
Isn't that wild
The programs allright
Coz it's my satellite
Yeah wild
Hello there at home
I'll be your host tonight

I'll give you x-rated nightmares
Your mum wouldn't allow you to see
Tom & Jerry & films 'bout the birds & the bees
Turn your big dish down & receive my lot
Forget about the news, workout & 700 club

Now I'm 40 feet below
Running my own show
Isn't that wild
The programs allright
Coz it's my satellite
Yeah wild
Hello there at home
I'll be your host tonight

Yeah wild...
I Won't Cut My Hair
I got hair in my ears
I got hair in my nose
I got hair on my back
And between my toes
When the time comes & my hairwash is due
I'm gonna use one ton of shampoo
But don't give me those sentimental eyes
Coz I'm proud & my hair is nice

It's not fair when people they stare
I love the colors I wear
I wont cut my hair
I wont cut my hair
Oh no, I wont cut my hair
Coz I'm proud of my hair

And like in the funny fairytale
I dry my hair the Rapunzel way
U just climb up the six floors
To my hairy home
& I fix u a smoke in the blend of my own
Yeah, I'll make u a hot pot of tea
Take off your clothes feel free
And get down in my hair
And make me insane
Lets get airborne on window pain

It's not fair...

I would die without my hair

Yeah right, I'm playin' in the band
And I would love to be your private Disneyland
I'll be your own amusement park
Then you can ride me
And ride me after dark
If they send me to the rows of death
For having illegal dope
I will order as my last meal
Before's the chair
Hamburger french fries n coke

Take those scissors away
I wont cut my hair

'Cause I'm proud and my hair is nice
I love my hair
I'm in love with my hair

I'm in love with my haaaaiiiir
Black Crickets
The winter of fortynine had passed
A winter of haunt n fear
Coz hunger had knocked at the city gate
And threatened the pioneers
Then low in the east strange clouds appeared
And dark became the sun
And the courage to fight n win a war
Was all of a sudden gone

Black crickets
By 10 of millions or more
Black crickets
By 10 of millions or more
Until the fields that waved were few
Black crickets

Crickets by 10 of millions came
Like fog on a british coast
They swept down from the mountain sides
Settled down by their mormon host
Then the eldest old man got this bright idea
And he called for all the men:
We'll build a giant nest & the crickets will fear
That the big bird is here again!!

Black crickets...

They constructed this nest 2 days went by
They all prayed that by the end of their work
The unexpected guests would fly

They saw the nest the vision occured
& the dogs would wag their tails
The crickets all shouted: Bird is the word!
And the insects hit their trail
All heads were bowed as they thanked their lord
And they reaped while the devil raved
Coz their harvest was saved to tons of praise
And the pioneers were saved

Black crickets...

Hundreds of thousands
Thousands of millions
Millions of billions
Billions of trillions
Trillions of zillions
D.A.Dillions of fantazillions
Of black crickets
Sleeping My Day Away
Mumbling goodmorning & raising my head
A bad breath kiss to my pillow pet
I take a look at the day turns & stay in bed
Open my eyes when the day have died
I turned the world and I slept allright
Now my daymare is over I zip my jeans tight
Oh lord won't you bless this night...

From the pale lips of a youth who lay
I'm sleeping my day away
And when the night comes to the city I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! With my pale lips in the pillow I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
After dark is the game I play
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away

When my dreams begin I'd be proud to be letting you in
With a smile on my face I guide our dreamboat in
So if you wanna travel along with me
You better sleep tight the rest of the day
You see I could be a sleeper it's not rest I lack
'Coz I hit the sack when the suns coming back

From the pale lips of a youth who lay
I'm sleeping my day away
And when the night comes to the city I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! With my pale lips in the pillow I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
That after dark - is the game I play
I'm sleeping my day, I'm sleeping my day, I'm sleeping my day
I'm sleeping my day away
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! Now I've turned the world around yeah! I did it again
I'm sleeping my day away
And now I have to wear my shades down sleepers lane
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! All the good people have gone to bed again
I'm sleeping my day away
'Coz the devil's at work inside my brain
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away away...
Jihad
From the steamin Mekong delta
To the shores of Tonkin bay
Bombs of yellied gasoline
Is making night as bright as day
And the mogul's hard tank masters
Adore their new grenades
And the D.A.D. find their 9" shells
Are great for border raids

Yeah! I'm superfurious
I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims

And you can shake your fist at the T.V. set
And you can slam your hand in the table
And you can cry and curse
Through tightlocked teeth
Just as hard as you are able
But you can't run away from trouble
'Coz there ain't no place that far
No fuel left for the pilgrims
Yeah! That's just the way we are

'Coz I'm superfurious I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims

This is tower again, do you read me? You can get the girls & the
videomachine but the fuel you asked for... You cannot have!

What?! Blow me to heaven!!
Jihad I'm getting so mad I'm getting so mad
..Who's mad I'm mad, so mad
Jihad I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims.
Etc.
Point of View
Yeah, you like a man when his mind is strong
When his ego's so high he couldn't be wrong
And you like a man when he's right at the top
When his ego is growing and it don't seem to stop

See I'd like to share your point of view
As long as it's my view too
Can't win on a comprise I'd rather loose on my own
'Coz I feel kind of good when I'm all alone

And you play the games by the book and the rules
See I play'em backwards - let's see who lose
Yeah, you don't gor for the man, you go for his balls
So let's see who stands & see who falls...

Yeah, I'd like to share your point of view
As long as it's my view too
Can't win on a comprise I'd rather loose on my own
'Coz I feel kind of good when I'm all alone
And if I take a stand it will be my own
And take it yeah! Yeah!!

Shhhhhh... Take a look in these eyes
Do they look sincere?. Do you read my lips
Do I make it clear? Bye bye so long,
I don't want you here...

Yeah, I tried to share your points of view
If not all then maybe just a few
I couldn't win on a compromise
I'd rather loose on my own
'Coz I feel kind of good when I'm all alone
And if I take a stand it'll be my own
Get out of my heart.
And my mind..
And my home...
Girl Nation
I had a ticket to fly so I boarded a plane
When a combat dressed stewardesse shouted my name
I'm wanted alive yeah! I'm in for a trial
It's minimum mercy coz they found my file
Hijacked, kidnapped, trailed and trapped
They fly me in I'm gonna pay for all of my sins - now it begins
Yeah! I've a found place where girls eat men
Now I'm back in girl nation again
Girl nation Female civilization
Girl nation Female civilization

It's a female tale it's hard to use words
But I'm landed and stranded among oysters & birds
Bad bush & dangerous curves bad boys get what they deserves
Wild sisters dancing all night Round that totem
With a knife to my throat Round that totem
Yeah! They're chanting the oath
Singing 'bout mama all through the night round that totem of the red light
In girl nation Female civilization
Girl nation Female civilization
In girl nation by interstellar navigation
And sweet female persuasion
Globetrotting to ladyland Back where time began

One wild second then I was down
One full circle they stood all around
Counting my bones waiting to be dead
When a soft loving hand lifted my head
Tender lips kissing my chin, whispering:
- Honey, where have you been?
In girl nation Totem of the red light
Female civilization
In girl nation Totem of the red light
It's a female civilization Girl nation
Totem of the red light
By interstellar navigation & sweet female persuasion
Globetrotting through ladyland - back where time began
In girl nation ...
Bad Craziness
Straight out of frame'n'bend out of shape
Nothing's real x-cept the money that we made
Staring at the place where the 2 walls meet
Yeah! - Take a chair'n'have a seat...
Well, I should see it as a brand new start
But I'm all Adams apple'n'a f-f-f-fast beatin' heart
My nerves they twist'n'they jerk
See no drugs will do the work
And I'll tell U for free
How I started stopped bein' me
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness

See the shadows dancing' on the cieling
Say, do U hear what I hear?
Like a T.V. no one watches
My head's filled with Yeahs'n'Overmuches
Walking trails on my livingroom floor
I feel that life won't be the same as before
Like an x-plorer; lookin' for help
I'd be happy to find myself..
And join the temple of hope
To keep my balance on this globe
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness
I had 2 feet on the ground now I'm almost gone!
B-B-B-Bad Craziness
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness ...

It's a bird, no a plane, it's a maaan insane!!

You won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness
I had 2 feet on the ground; now I'm almost gone
B-B-B-Bad Craziness
Now you won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
Bad Craziness
Yeah!
Bad Craziness Bad Craziness
Anything for a good night's sleep
Bad Craziness
I'm counting nightmares instead of sheep
Bad Craziness
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone!.
Grow or Pay
There was a real thin line
Between right or wrong
In those Walt Disney times
When my parents were young..
But the line has disappeared...
And you wonder where it hides....
And you wanna go out; but you stay inside.....

I got run over by truth one day
Didn't see the red light
Since the accident I've walked this way
- I only did what felt right...
But from this day on; it's either: grow or pay!
Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by truth one day

Sometimes the sky's so grey
That you cannot see beyond it
And even the wildest of dreams
- Can't take those lines from your forehead
Yeah! I know there's a bill
- And it's gonna make it's way somehow
With and excuse and a bow; I'll be paying it now:

I got run over by truth one day
Didn't see the red light
Since the accident I've walked this way
- I only did what felt right...
But from this day on; it's either: grow or pay!
Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by truth one day
Grow or pay
From this day on it's either: grow or pay
Grow or pay

Grow or pay
I got run over by the truth one day
And since the accident I've walked this way
Didn't see the red light
But from this day on; it's either grow or pay!

Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by the truth one day...
Laugh and a ½
I learned politeness on my mother's knee..
I learned by uprightness my number of friends
Should increase...
- When I think about the things I've done...
I laugh out loud to noone ...
- Yeah, to noone..
- 'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good...
- But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- But I became honest Mr. Mistaken
In spite of the curves my smile was makin'...
Bumpers and kickers in one big stream
I grew up in a life size pinball machine!
Yeah! - They're mean!.
'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart...
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good...
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- I tried to fill some silence -
'Coz the silence feels so long..
- I knew the ice was gettin' thinner
But I kept skating on!..
My mother threw me into this world as a winner
- But by the light of the yellow beer
They tell the jokes I'll never get to hear!!
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2.
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2..
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2...
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2....
Reconstrucdead
When the fever burns your brain
When your heart has got a name
And you long for generous days
You want a spring in your walk and a smile on your face..
Another day inside the pearl
You could have screamed; leaving this world
You laugh'n'joke without a care
And bear a depression you can see from the air..

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead

A tambourine rings in my blood
The circus' rolling'n'the cage is locked..
So where's the light - a match that flares
- The pot at the end of the rainbow's where
Pick your nose as you pick your friends
Or spend a life in fear of the end
To tell a nodding shrink won't help
- So I say to myself: Hey, get a hold on yourself!

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead, reconstrucdead..

My eyes are blind My mind is numb
But my ears begin to hear - to hear the growing hum
Like a statue, jealous of the rush hour
I'm reconstrucdead like a monument, a monument to power
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
Standing high up as a tower now, but still the cracks will - yeah
The cracks will show
A lifetime of frustration - the things that I can't get
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead
Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead
Naked (But Still Strippin')
My tongue's tied and sliced in two
And wagging at both ends...
Yeah, I've learned to talk -
Both sides of my mouth makes sense
You'll see the skin of my teeth
But you won't see a smile
So here it is, the big truth
Hiding in the little lie...
My throw decides my aim
And with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end
As if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!
I'm naked but still stripping..

Luxury tends to be the same every day
But I know misery's for each in his own way..
I count on amputated fingers who I call a friend
The end is hard when brought about
By what you thought made sense...
My throw decides my aim and with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end as if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming - yeah!
I'm naked - but still stripping..

Some people live so close
To their bones; with just themselves to be
But I run around; inside myself
- Like something's after me
I take off my skin
Underneath there's nothing
Everything's gone ... A naked skeleton!
Piece of an arm piece of a leg
A piece of my tongue
And peace for everyone...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!
Empty Heads
Hey, I'm the guy there on the wall and I'm all dismembered parts
Yeah, I got not arms or legs: So go ahead and call me - Art!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..

And now I'm floating in the sea. 'Coz I'm the guy that lost his job
Yeah, I lost my arms & legs, so go ahead and call me: Bob!!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..
Home Alone 4
Gently my eyelids close, I'd rather be good than clever
I'd rather have all facts wrong than no reply whatever..
I learned before I could speak with those "being patient eyes"
When God created my kind. But he forgot to tell me why
So gently my eyelids close..
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had...

Led by hearts & ears - memory lagging behind
No shame being a fool, I got many things on my mind
Pick up the phone on first riiiing - I never get out anymore..
There's nowhere to go, but back and there's quicksand outside my door
So gently my eyelids close
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had.. I lost it - I lost it. Yeah!
Is that a shadow - or a hole in the floor?
And what's that noise outside my door??
Home alone. On my own.. And all alone...
Hate To Say I Told You So
I need to be afraid, said the kindweak man
As he lay cuddled up in his bed with those whispers around his head
Yeah, he'd come to nothing in a way - in a way that left him
With nothing to say but: o.k.! Yeah, his eyes only worked one way
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..

Old scars, but the cuts were new, said the girl, who loved many
But trusted a few, yeah, it's true - 'coz she feared anyone new
She lend out her feelings of pure affection, he kept the collection
And the missing piece of her heart - Yeah, her eyes only looked that far
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..

There's murder going on inside...
Yeah, 'coz you only see so much through the human eye
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..
Everything Glows
I keep moving into myself
I keep all my hate to myself
I keep the polaroids of my hell
I keep all my hope to myself

Days when life does man a favor
Days when everything glows
Days when luck is handed over
Still my eyes are closed

Days when life just grabs your shoulder
Days when everything flow
Luck has found its rightful owner
Still my eyes are closed..

I know that your eyes are on fire
I know that your ears are on me
And because my thinking is quiet
I'm the calm and deep blue sea

Days when life does man a favor...

Days when life just grabs your shoulder...
Nineteenhundredandyesterday
I let a lie come true
I even cared enough to lie
Recieve what I transmit
And slowly close your eyes
Yeah, to unlock your locked up love
And set it free
You need a complicated key
You need a key as big as me ..

You were almost on my mind
Yeah, and though I'm doing just fine
I've hurt myself in many ways
Back in nineteenhundredandyesterday
Yeah, I think of you every time
Every time I leave it behind -
Back in nineteenhundredandyesterday

And when I lie in bed
And I'm going through the day
What's been done and said
It slips into my head
You open up one door
And then you're faced with many more
Yeah, I know all of them well
I keep my questions to myself

You were almost on my mind ...

Hey, I thought I wanted it
I thought I needed it
To unlock your locked up love
You left the key and then you walked off

You were almost on my mind ...
Something Good
Do you really think that you're lost?
And that you'll never find the way
Learn the secrets of the woods
See the picture if you could
You grow a little every day
And now I'm grown and I look like you
Who'd ever know - how I turned out
But, I'm grown, and I look like you
I look like someone I never knew..

Speak while your lips are trembling
Talk to me when I'm listening
Finally someone said something good

We grow a little every day
And now I'm grown and I look like you
Like a voice that fills out the room
How do you know when you've grown up?
When you tie yourself down and give yourself up.

Speak while your lips are trembling
Talk to me when I'm listening
Finally someone said something good
Because we're leaving nothing
But moments of belonging
Finally someone said something good
Finally someone said something good
In the end someone says something good..
Evil Twin
Just like an indian
I chant and dance around
A shiny new room
With a shiny new sound

Today I woke up screaming
-Hello, my evil twin
Who's the old and boring
Like a change of skin
Yeah, I tried forever
Forever is like chains
Now the chain is torn
Inside this quiet form
Is a roaring thunderstorm

Friends stopped by
Left when they learned
All having wasted, time and concern

Today I woke up screaming...

Yeah, I'm for longer living
And I'm for laughing loud
Now I'm the kind of person
I warned myself about!.

Yeah, today I woke up screaming ...
Soft Dogs
Wrong words
Out of confusion
Yeah, I risk losing
The flesh you wear so well
Lost words
Eating away with no patience
Noone mentions
Our hearts like a small machine
Giving
And finding the place where your soul is
It's just that I know this
It's near the wound - it's near the pain
Listen
To the warm red water
Making me smaller
And soft as tears - soft as rain

I'm finally on my knees
The stupid pride recedes
Baby, I'm all ears..
Finally
I hear every word you're sayin'
Baby, I'm a soft dog at your feet

Wrong turns
Maybe I ordered
But, you followed
Me straight to hell
And wild words
Like I know what I'm doing
Like I know who I'm using
I can never tell..
Changes
The kiss of life that I'm giving
I've been afraid for no reason
Again this feels like home

I'm finally ...

Yeah, it's nothing but spoken words
But, it's the words that hurts
And some will never be said again ..
Mistakes, we'll quickly forget it
The one false line, I really regret it
Because the original scratch remains
Scare Yourself
You scare yourself with the future
Yeah its hollow chest seems full
No room for rebellion
You only see the strings that pull
Scared into boredom
Yeah 'coz the things that tempt your fate
Just grows into trouble
Both some old and some up to date
Scare yourself into empty space
A distant star above the human race
Scare yourself about the getting down
'coz when you look down you never left the ground

Scare yourself into darker nights
Scare yourself on how you live your life
Scare yourself far away from the light
Today is the worst day of your life...

You're too afraid to remember
You know you're going to dream what you saw
But you will not be listening
To what it says but for the knock on the door
Scare yourself up against the wall
Your face is white from a voice that calls
You're the trap and the bait as well
You're so smart you're gonna scare yourself

Scare yourself into darker nights
Scare yourself on how you live your life
Scare yourself about the getting down
'Cause when you look down you never left the ground...
You never left the ground...
Lawrence of Suburbia
Wide eyed
Open mouthed
Blank faced
Low clouds
Long walk
Up from hell
But I came back
Back unbent
What it means
Is that I'm good
That much
Is understood
But all in the room
Is dark because
Life is no longer what it was

Lawrence of Suburbia
Real life is murder
Wake up from Utopia
On it again
All aboard the moneytrain

Everyday
As a rule
I'm distant
I'm cool
Not the same
As before
I've folded up suicide
In four
But this dirty sun
Shining down
Pierce the dark
And the sound
All you'll see
Is a tightlipped smile
On a scared little man
As the train runs wild...

Monster Philosophy
Harmony
Is a bit of you
And a lot of me

Tranquility
When rule number one
Is how I feel

A warm embrace
With instincts set
On human prey

I've overdosed on peace
What I wanna hear
Is honesty

Underneath the rules of liberty
You've got a monster philosophy
YOU'VE GOT A MONSTER PHILOSOPHY

A fountain of life
The ticking bomb
Of a reptile mind

A mutual trust
A face on fire
With brutal lust

The allknowing heart
I'd rather be lucky
Than wise and smart

A mystery
The monster is barking
Up the wrong tree
A New Age Moving In
Yeah you've hit glass ceiling
Yeah you've hurt you're head
All these beginnings
None of them perfect
But bad seeks good
Like dark seeks light
Yesterday was wrong
But today is right

There's another world to come
A place we can believe
Where the clever eats the strong
Could we change it all
And could I tell them how I feel
Or should I wait
Should I save myself
Or is it already too late

Cuz there's a new age moving…..
There's a new age coming
There's a new age moving
A new age moving in
There's a new clock running
Gonna let a new storm in
There's a new age moving in
A new age moving in

The last highschool dance
Yeah no more of that
Cuz you've turned to the future
Hey you're done with the past
And if you can't understand
What's coming from within
Yeah bottomfeeders
A new age is moving in

A creature taking form
Yeah it's gonna knock you down
Now everybody listens
Both rich and poor
Could I tell them how I feel
Or should I wait
You better save yourself
Or is it already too late

Cuz there's a new age moving…

In the black water where the dolphins used to roll
Floating as the last living on earth
The cities drowned, the trees as black as coal
It's the same world turned alien
It's a world you recognize in pieces
In a sea of burning flames, in a sea of burning flames
The stink that fouls the air - is yourself

New clock running…..
Gonna let a new storm in…
Cuz there's a new age moving…..
I Want What She's Got
She holds out her hand
In warning or welcome
Haven't told anyone yet
She takes mine and says
If you can't do it right
Try again…
Yeah I've been repeating mistakes
Just to see what breaks
In someone else, or myself
She breathes deeply
And keeps me inside…

Until the stars disappears
And the sun's coming up in my eyes
I want what she's got
I can see her heart
And not the rules we live by
I want what she's got
I feel her hands will catch
Whatever may come
I want what she's got

She says that life is a toy
It's not a game
Don’t be afraid to get caught
I said I wish I'd felt the same
To be someone I'm not
With my name
But if it's in you you'll find it
Don't be afraid of me
I'm close but never in the way
She's my morning,
At the end of the night

Until the stars disappears …..
And the sun's coming up in my eyes
I want what she's got
I can see her heart
And not the rules we live by
I want what she's got
I feel her hands will catch
Whatever may come
I want what she's got
The stars disappears
And here comes the sun…
Here comes the sun

-Yeah look at that girl
She ain't got no plans
Yeah look at that girl
She's my locomotive
She knows the answer
The answer is love if you can

Done!
We All Fall Down
All three wishes used
And the world is not amused
The door to your heart's still shut
A truckfull of flowers ain't love
Sorry's not enough

A brand new broken heart
Needs breaking in
Needs breaking in to start
To see it a whole new way
I wish you could hear what I say

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
I just couldn't turn myself around

And we're digging up the past
Your own karma bites your ass
Like the invisible man in the rain
Your covers blown my friend
We're slipping once again

But in the midnight of everything
You turn yourself
And wonder where you've been
For all the truth in the world
I couldn't see it I just observed

Yeah we all fall down
All fall down
We all fall down
We can't turn ourselves around
I'll always wonder how
What's lost, can be found
Are you there if I dare turn around?
I'm there if you dare turn around

In the midnight of everything
We'll be slipping again
We'll be slipping again
