Track Name: Waiting For The Medicine To Work
in my heart
I feel the pain
need to go on
who to blame

time heals a lot
but the wounds remain
going through the motions
is driving me insane

be patient
there are
no quick fixes
around

waiting for the medicine to work
waiting for the medicine to work
waiting for the medicine to work
waiting for the medicine to work
Track Name: When Will You Be Mine?
Birds fly in the air
The sun is clear
This is the day
I defeat my fear

I don't want to be alone anymore

When Will You Be Mine?
When Will You Be Mine I ask You?
When Will You Be Mine?
Track Name: This Is Not A Good Day
this is not a good day
this is not a good day

the train is late
or derailed
the coffee cold
the elevator failed
when I wake up
or go to bed
there is only one thought
in my head

this is not a good day
this is not a good day
I don't feel so well
this is what I say
this is not a good day
this is not a good day

I crashed my car
bumped my head
I accidently
killed my cat
the IRS
found my secret cash
and my wife
caught me wearing her new dress

this is not a good day
this is not a good day
I don't feel so well
I need to go away
this is not a good day
this is not a good day
Track Name: If You Don't Like It - Give It Back
you can have my car
you can have my house
I give you all I have
you can have my heart

if You Don't Like It - Give It Back
if You Don't Like It - Give It Back

I bought you many presents
and a golden ring
you can have my life
if you stay with me

if You Don't Like It - Give It Back
if You Don't Like It - Give It Back
Track Name: Où Est Ma Melody?

Une vie sans melody est une vie sans vie
L'amour n'as pas de prix

BRIDGE
Dansent, dansent les flocons blancs
Apres la pluie viendra le beau temps

Ne retiens pas tes larmes
Une melody peut briser tous les chagrins

After the rain comes the sun

One melody can shatter all grief

CHORUS
Melody
Where is my Melody
Melody
Where is my Melody

I am here
Track Name: Living Alone
the cat wonders
when you will return
but I don't care
I'm here to learn

I won’t be waiting
next to my phone
you know where to find me
I am well known

I never thought
it would come this far
it started with a fight
it ends with all out war

[solo]

living alone
the silent home
the dead phone

the bird has flown
I should have known
living alone
isn't all
that's it's
cracked up to be
Track Name: Chaos
Chaos
Chaos

We will survive
we’re going down
We will survive
we’re going down
We will survive
we’re going down
so fast you can't blink with your eyes

Chaos
Chaos

We will survive
we’re going down
We will survive
we’re going down
We will survive
we’re going down
so fast you can't blink with your eyes
Track Name: Choose A Better Man
you better choose
a better man
choose
a better man

there you are
fat like a cow
carrying his third child
are you happy now?

your hubby
is sleeping around
drinking before noon
are you happy now

you better choose
a better man
choose
a better man
while you still can
Track Name: Say Nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing

some people cannot shut their mouth
blabbing away like a washout
politicians musicians celebrity stars
I have enough of their witty remarks

If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
If you've got nothing to say - say nothing
say something useful or
say nothing at all
Track Name: Weapon Of Destruction
lyrics Geneva Griffin

Wake up to reality
Face your illusion
Raised to misbelieve
You're super human

Weave
Deception
Suffer
Disconnection
Weave
Deception
Suffer
Disconnection
You're a weapon
Of destruction

In a cut-throat world
Confusion reins supreme
Your guaranteed word
Is not only misleading

You color a lie
You color a lie
With some truth
For the stupid
Track Name: She Just Laughs At Me
everyday we met
for 10 seconds or less
we never speak
nothing to confess

she just laughs at me
she can see who I really am now
she just laughs at me

and when it's 5 o'clock
she leaves the office room
my mood is grey
I have to wait till the next day

she never talks
she never mails
I wonder
how she feels

she just laughs at me
she can see who I really am now
she just laughs at me
da do da deed de
Track Name: Am I Happy?
when I wake up
the end of a dream
the annoying buzzer
this is real

finding some
old clothes to wear
breakfast alone
no news to share

another day
to survive
nothing exciting
in this grey life

chaos in my head
emptiness in my bed
life is dragging on
without any fun

am I happy
am I happy

and when the sun is shining
and the park is green
the skirts are short
nothing feels so mean
life seems wonderful
under a blue sky
everything seems OK
still I feel not fine

and when I lie in bed
doubts running though my head
the silence in the house
the emptiness inside
and I wonder without pride
am I happy?
Track Name: No Comeback
no illusions
no way back
no expectations
it's a fact
no comeback
no comeback

your lover has gone
to somebody else
get over it
break the spell

if you fail
you have to quit
burn the bridges
pay for it

no illusions
don't look back
no expectations
it's a fact
no comeback
no comeback

don't feel sad
there's more to life
be yourself
you'll survive

no recovery
no snappy reply
out of the loop
you can't deny

the party is over
don't tag along
once you're out
you're gone

no comeback
no comeback

[solo]

[chorus]

[silence]

the day is over
the dream has gone
this is not the intro
but the end of the song

no comeback
no comeback
no comeback
no comeback

everything will end someday
welcome to the rest of your life

no comeback
no comeback

come back
come back!
