It’s an accident waiting to happen going straight where we need to turn no map or captain to guide us soon we'll crash and burn this clash we'll never win we'll all go down you've got to learn to swim if you don't want to drown like the dance band on the Titanic we just go on on on on on like the dance band on the Titanic the future is gone we're dancing and we're singing we're playing and we're grinning but it is a mess playing dumb won't be a success this clash we'll never win we'll all go down you've got to learn to swim if you don't want to drown like the dance band on the Titanic we just go on on on on on like the dance band on the Titanic the future is gone

The phone is ringing day in day out People blabbing in my ear Babies are crying out loud Newspapers filled with fear It is raining all day long I am soaking wet They say do this do that My boss my wife the president I just wanna sit in my garden Enjoying a cold beer I just wanna sit in my garden In the sun Grocery shopping cooking cleaning Mailing typing meeting speaking Driving running yelling cursing Watching walking waiting wishing I just wanna sit in my garden Reading a book I just wanna sit in my garden In the sun

You better believe It is a serious gift It can save your life Don't mess with it Planets align Bad poetry rhyme The sour wine Everything is a sign To the true believer Everything is a sign Be the receiver Of a gift divine Planets align Bad poetry rhyme Your hairline Everything is a sign

the managers say you must succeed they imprint the infallible doctrine success is what you need every game a win every battle a success losing is a sin always someone to impress but listen to what I say Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option don't believe all the dumheads you meet don't believe the bastards on tv don't listen when they speak just believe in you and me Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option Failure is always an option so think about this the next time you feel down

Waiting, waiting, waiting Waiting and anticipating Some much time spend On waiting Plants wait for rain The newborn for a name The wound for the pain Waiting, waiting, waiting Waiting and anticipating Some much time spend For the waiting To end The player waits for a game A scapegoat for the blame The match for a flame

Hee I'm a Lawn Mower man I'm a Lawn Mower man I like to decapitate Those useless green blades Everyday I take another route Nobody tells me what to do Hee I'm a Lawn Mower man I'm a Lawn Mower man And I do what I can

From the fields of Elysium To the gardens of Babylon From the halls of Valhalla To the remains of the Parthenon I want you I want you I want you NOW If this is a chore You will be contracted If this is a war You will be drafted I want you I want you I want you NOW

lyrics by thedustcollector Smile shadow tree shadow teeth shadow dark-under-bed Come out to play for the cupboards and creaks in my head Come out to crawl on the carpet and die in my hair Mornings have monsters and someday I’ll dance with you there Someday I’ll dance with you there Someday I’ll die with you there Where Nowhere Here I’ll eat you up, I love you so I’ll eat you up, I love you so I've never learned to grow I never could let go

What you need Is a message from above When you're in need Of spiritual guidance You may expect To be bombed (In your face) What you need Is a message from above The far away gods May send you a message Or the messiah Or a tapestry of bombs (In your face) What you need Is a message from above

You need no ignition Our relationship is a collision I need my freedom, just like you I need to swing around So many fish in the sea I made the decision We need a half time intermission
12.
The first glimpse Of the sun The breaking Of the dawn Step out of bed The shower is hot Everyday is a new beginning Forget what happened in the past Everyday a new beginning To do something that will last Everyday is a new beginning Forget what happened in the past Everyday a new beginning Create something That will last

in the inevitable situation I need some consolation my moodswings are down the floor for an unknown duration of pain and stagnation I need you more and more please hold me I'm going down please hold me now I'm going down like lemmings on a cliff I feel like i have slipped please hold me I'm going down please hold me now I'm going down
14.
I think you’re so special With your little smile You’re a new level Of sophistication and style But your head is in the clouds You never express doubts Of your worries and your fears And the hidden tears You’re so smart Always two steps ahead Libraries can be filled With all the books you’ve read And now you are so sad Suicidal sad Standing on the edge Ready to be dead
15.
The walls are empty The bed is cold The plants are dead The couch has been sold People are bullying Fighting and arguing They’re never satisfied Always looking For a reason To fight I … don’t like it here I … don’t like it here I don’t wanna be here anymore I’m gone The endless rains The dreadful games Never being a part of the winning team Nothing is what it seems I … don’t like it here I … don’t like it here I don’t wanna be here anymore I’m gone I’m so gone

You're my trophy wife Beautiful and full of life But although you're my honey You cost me a lot of money Why do I buy these things Golden necklace diamond rings I just need more bling blings You're to one I adore I can't tell you i am poor You will leave me I am sure Baby, you're high maintenance

You don't have to listen If you don't want to You don't have to listen If you don't want to You don't have to listen If you don't want to I Don't Mind In the morning Or in the evening In the kitchen Or in bed In the car On the plain Or the train You don't have to listen If you don't want to You don't have to listen If you don't want to You don't have to listen If you don't want to I Don't Mind

I watched a long movie Till the very end The music was groovy But I lost the plot again I've got a dip In my dip A serious dip In my dip Dip dip dip This coffee machine Is out of beans This automobile Has only three wheels I've got a dip In my dip A serious dip In my dip Dip dip dip
