Track Name: Dance Band On The Titanic
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
Track Name: Sit In My Garden
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
Track Name: Everything Is A Sign
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
Track Name: Failure Is Always An Option
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
Track Name: Move Forward
make your own choices
never complain again
remove all the noises
the white noise in your head

move forward
that's what you gotta do
move forward
nothing can stop you

stop being a cartographer
(cartographer)
and become an explorer
(explorer)
lead a fearless and shameless life
(shameless life)
tell yourself life is worth the price
(worth the price)

move forward
that's what you gotta do
move forward
nothing can stop you

you can do it!
Track Name: Waiting, Waiting, Waiting
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
Track Name: (I'm A) Lawn Mower Man
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
Track Name: I Want You (Now)
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
Track Name: Someday I'll Die With You There
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
Track Name: Message From Above
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
Track Name: == halftime intermission ==
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
Track Name: A New Beginning
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
Track Name: Please Hold Me
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
Track Name: You're So Special
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
Track Name: I Don't Like It Here
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
Track Name: Baby, You're High Maintenance
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
Track Name: You Don't Have To Listen!
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
Track Name: Stop Complaining
that's not what we asked for
that's not what we asked for

the weather is too hot or too cold
your partner too young or too old
you eat too little or too much
the music is loud dumb trivial and such

that's not what we asked for
that's not what we asked for

stop complaining!
Track Name: Dip In My Dip
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
Track Name: Why Do You Treat Me So Bad
Why do you treat me so bad
Why do you treat me so bad
Now I feel so sad
Why do you treat me so bad
