Track Name: Teardrop Son
It's a strange perk
I must confess
You cannot resent
This written mess

The wall black
Egg revoking
The ink blur
I ain't joking

I lost
You won
Teardrop son

Filthy seance
Wonder ego
Herb hating
Yeti witch
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Start
I'm like my car
On a bad day
I'm like a train
With some delay

I'll do it tomorrow
Mañana sounds fine
The couch is soft
The wine devine

I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna
Start
Today
Track Name: Second Term President
He nice to meet you
I'm your man
Tell me what you want
And I do what I can

I can lower taxes
Decrease the deficit
Banish unemployment
And defeat that mormon Mitt

I'm a
3x Second Term President

I'll end all wars
And close GBay
I'll fix global warming
Osama won't get away

of wait, we already got him

I'm a
3x Second Term President

vote!
vote!
vote!
vote!
vote for me.

I'll never tell a lie
I'm the man with the plan
And when I die
I'll rise again

I'm a
3x Second Term President

And with a bit of luck
I won't be a lame duck

(this message was not approved by president Obama)
Track Name: Silent Movie Stars
I’ve got pictures on the wall
Some large some small
They don’t live anymore
Old movie stars I adore

They live on the screen
All these brilliant movies to be seen

Silent movies speak so well
The women look so swell
Old movie stars I adore
I’m not alone anymore

They live on the screen
All these brilliant movies to be seen
Track Name: Daddy Ran Away
Papa didn’t save
Enough money
To be our dad

So he ran away
So he ran away
So he ran away
Daddy ran away

Now we’re starving
Begging for food
Mam is a junk
Mam is drunk

Daddy ran away
Daddy ran away
Daddy ran away
Daddy ran away
Track Name: I Feel Free
I don’t care about you
You don’t care about me
We don’t care about each other
And I feel free
Track Name: In Front Of The TV
let me present you
with the things I know
it may sound ridiculous
but it’s just for show

it may be creepy
it may be lame
you can loose your money
i’m not to blame

another productive day
in front of the TV
is this what your life
is gonna be

in the end you wonder
what just went by
and you may ponder
to laugh or to cry

sometimes it’s better
not to think about things
sometimes you can get there
without committing sins
Track Name: Jonathan
he saw her
while repairing her car
at his garage
a real movie star

he watched her films
read all her books
visited her concerts
admiring her looks

jonathan
jonathan
her biggest fan

he wrote her letters
poured out his soul
so much to say
to his idol

he send her emails
composed her a song
never a reply
something must be wrong

her brake fluid light
went red instead of green
her car dissappeared
in a deep ravine

he visits her grave
twice a day
a flower for his lady
and so much to say
Track Name: Letting You Go
verse
every night the same whining
I don’t listen anymore
I am bored when we’re dining
because you always end up crying

chorus
every room has a door
I can’t help you anymore
you seem to be forgetting
I’m letting you goooo

verse
u preach with your hand
u fall on your knees
the rock beneath the sand
is unable to bend

chorus
I can’t help you anymore
every room has a door
you seem to be forgetting
I’m letting you goooo
Track Name: My Cat Is Dead
She was sick
Laid down her head
Now she’s gone
My dear loved cat
My cat is dead

I’ve saved her
From the animal shelter
Fat and smart
She stole my heart

She became thinner
Her vision retarded
Her hearing impaired
Her fur matted
She couldn’t hear me anymore

In my mind she is still alive
Leaving a path of destruction
With her sweeping tail
In a feline paradise
Track Name: Big Leap
When you leave your home
To live on your own

When you marry your spouse
and buy a new house

It's a big leap
It's a big leap

When you hold your newborn
baby in your arm

When you're dying in bed
Filled with regrets
Track Name: The Summer's Sun
I like to take long walks
Through the wavy hills
Seeing cows grazing grass
Four stomachs to fill
I feel it in my bones
I am no longer alone
Trees are moving
Wind is grooving
Fresh like it's just begun
Fresh like a summer's sun

I like to sit
Near the fire place
Reading books on the couch
No more pain to face
I feel it in my bones
I am finally alone
Flames are moving
Warmth is soothing
Fresh coals are fighting to glow
Fresh like the winter's snow
Track Name: Noziroh Eht No Epoh
There's always a new beginning
Hope on the horizon
One day you'll be winning
And realizing
Life is worth living
Track Name: (Just A) Soundcheck
I can say that I love you
I’ll move for you
I want your children
I’ll even love them too
But it’s worth a heck
This is just a soundcheck

I can say I feel happy
I can think I feel free
I’m smart as a whistle
And rich like a bee
But it’s worth a heck
This is just a soundcheck
Track Name: Fire & Ice
I would like to talk to you
See you
Wouldn’t that be nice?

I would like to hug you
Like other people do
Wouldn’t that be nice?

But it would be like
Fire .... and ice

You can ran away
Like and old school dictator
Go astray
Won’t see you later

I like to visit you
But we are through
We pay the price

We’re like
Fire .... and ice
Track Name: I'm NSFW
I ruined my assignment
I yell at customers
I crashed the companies car
And sole our trade secrets to the Chinese

I’m always late
And leave early
I break my computers
and pay the wrong accounts

I’m the nightmare
Of every manager
I’m a 1st class jerk
I’m NSFW

Harass my female colleagues
Sabotage the outings
I spit in their coffee
I insult the CEO

I steal from the canteen
Clog the toilets
Play pc games all day
My desk is a total mess

I’m the nightmare
Of every manager
I’m a 1st class jerk
I’m NSFW

The company is running at a loss
They are blaming me but I just blame my boss
Track Name: Werewolf
Kitty roams the streets
day and night
searching for food
or someone to fight

Kitty is a werewolf
Kitty is a werewolf

Her presence makes you laugh or cry
sometimes she is brutal
sometimes she is shy

And when she picks you
to mate with her
put your hands
in her warm fur
Track Name: This World Will End
In the event of the money misspent
Worrying if you can pay the rent
One man’s ceiling is another men’s floor
Poverty consists in feeling poor

We’re heading for the main event
A global big bang, this world will end

It’s no surprise, people aren’t so wise
They hit themselves against the same stone twice
The Mayan people already said
In 2012 we’ll all be dead

We’re heading for the main event
A global big bang, this world will end

We’re heading for the main event
A global big bang, the world will end
The world will end
Track Name: This May Not Be My Best Day
Last year I was sad
Just married a gingerbread
Finally we went to bed
I discovered she was a lad

This may not be my best day

Last week I was sad
There were mice in my bed
Put poison in the bread
Accidentally killed my dad

This may not be my best day

Today I am sad
Wall Street went into red
Want to play Russian Roulette
Put a gun against me head

This may not be my best day
Track Name: (I Want To Live In) New York City
I want to see the Hudson
Cruising towards Albany
Taking a break in Poughkeepsie
That’s where I want to be

I want to live where the life is pretty
I want to live in NYC

Peekskill, Kinderhook, Coxsackie
Catskill and Schenectady
Yonkers, Bronx, Staten Island
There is so much to see

And of course I want to see Brooklyn
Cony Island, JFK
Flushing, Flatlands, Rockaway
Long Island here I come

I want to stay where the life is great
I want to stay in NY State
Track Name: Why Don't You Talk To Me
Why don’t you talk to me
Am I so hard to see
You’re my inspiration
Why don’t you talk to me

Why don’t you notice me
Am I the enemy
You’re my inspiration
Why don’t you notice me

I was standing near the Wailing Wall
I felt so small
In the Church Of The Holy Sepulchre
I wondered if you still care

I do exist
(You can’t ignore me)
Track Name: I Want To Start All Over Again
I want to start
all over again
I want to start
all over again

all over again
all over again
all over again
agaaaaain

I want to start
all over again
I want to start
all over again

all over again
all over again
all over again
agaaaaain

Back to square one
I have lost
You have won
The damage cannot be undone
Let’s remember how we began

I want to start
all over again
I want to start
all over again
Track Name: I'm Still Around
Drums to the left
Keyboard to the right
Bass in the middle
Dark, not bright
Guitar in the back
Digital track
Vocals in the front
With some feedback

I’m still around
Tightly homebound
I’m still around
Improving my sound

Waiting for something to happen
Waiting for something to happen
