Track Name: (Oh No) Not Another Album
Oh No Not Another Album
All these foolish songs in a row
Oh No Not Another Album
I’ve had enough of this stuff

Another radio throw away
Another string of clichés
A waste if time to play
Albums are so passe

Oh No Not Another Album
This antitainment can't continue
Oh No Not Another Album
Stuck in a neverending loop

Oh No Not Another Album
Another train of thoughts fully derailed
Oh No Not Another Album
But without it I have failed
Track Name: Back On Track
I'm back on track
don’t know where to start
don’t know where to end
back on track
the road ahead
is uncertain

I'm back on track
here we go again
another round
of nothingness
without a shred of hope
I'll find a way to cope

I'm back on track
call me a broken record
like I care
back on track
the show will start
and I play my part

I'm back on track
feel the pain
of a derailed train
back on track
no escaping
no place to hide

I'm back on track
everyday comes
with his own surprises
back on track
Quetzalcóatl’s second coming
Track Name: Don't Blame It On Me
‘Before the just and almighty God,
and by the faith of the holy sacrament I;ve taken,
I am innocent, of the offence
with, which I, am charged.’

don’t blame it on me
don’t blame it on us
don’t blame it on god
it’s your own fault

always complaining
it's never your fault
take responsibility
dare to be bold

don’t blame it on me
don’t blame it on us
don’t blame it on god
it’s your own damn fault
Track Name: Terribly (Ode To Trump)
I am powerful
I can do what I want
Cheat and lie
I'm in command

I like to do terrible things terribly

I'm a super rich
A true alpha male
I know best
I never fail

I like to do terrible things terribly
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Leave me alone
If just for a day
I need that space, only you can give
You're now my stone
Tied around both feet
I need to move, far away from here

Be somewhere else
Even just for a day
I need to feel alive at least once a week

Don't interfere
With the dreams in my head
I need a place to exist alone
Track Name: Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today
be the reason someone smiles today
always have a nice thing to say
be the reason someone smiles today
make the world better in your own way

it’s easier to hate than to love
make a difference to other people’s life
you’ve got more to gain than to lose
make someone feel special
Track Name: Who's Paying The Bill
yolo
as much as you want
the end is near
without a nuclear détente

you can elect
whoever you choose
I don't care
I've only one question for you

Who’s Paying The Bill
Who’s Paying The Bill

progress
is undone
for entire
populations

the price
is too high
we'll be in debt
for many generations

Who’s Paying The Bill
Who’s Paying The Bill

devolution
is not so nice
back to our holes
in the woods
Track Name: Don't Look At Me
You got to do it
All by yourself
Help
Ain't coming

I'm through
I'm gone
Count me
Out

I'm leaving
Through the back door
That's what life
Is all about

Don't look at me
I'm not there

I'm sitting on my stoop now
Looking left and right
Wondering what to do next
To run or to fight

There is nothing to see
So please don't look at me
Whatever you plea
I'm an absentee
Not a referee

I don't know
The answers you want
This is all
Your own damn fault

I'm leaving
Through the back door
That's what life
Is all about

Don't look at me
I'm not here
Track Name: You're So Fab
My hands are shaking
Can't keep up the pace
So many things to do
While you sleep through the day

My head is spinning
Can't keep up the pace
While you have your fun
I'll try to run the place

You just lay down wherever you want
Or eat from the ground
Playing silly ball games
With your filthy mouth

My legs are tired
Can't keep up the pace
Clearing your mess
Please try to drool less

You ask for food all the time
And when I refuse you start to whine

On the couch
With your head in my lap
I forget all the troubles
You're so fab
Track Name: Let's Care About Each Other
let’s care about each other
one day after another
what is wrong
with a little trust

enjoy it while the sun shines
never leave anyone behind
what is wrong
with a little trust

who is leading us, when we go round in circles
sometimes reality is not what you want

let go of your frustrations
clean up your own mess
it’s easier to hate than to love
talk less and listen more

who is leading us, when we go round in circles
sometimes reality is not what you want
Track Name: A Fable (About a Cat, Fish and Dog)
The fat cat is looking
At the fish
The fish is swimming
In his bowl

He is not hungry
Still he wants it all
He want to have
The fish in that bowl

I - need - the - fish
I - need - the - fish

He asks the dog
To help him out
He can touch
The bowl with his snout

The gullible dog
Kicks the bowl
To the ground
An enormous sound

A thousand pieces
Glass everywhere
The dogs cuts his feet
And bleeds to death

The dog is dead
The fish is dead
And the cat
He doesn't care
Track Name: Gossip
Ani talks to Jim
Jim talks to Pete
Pete talks to Su
Su talks to Frank
Frank talks to Hank
Hank talks to Jean
Jean talks to Lee
Lee talks to me

It's all
gossip gossip gossip gossip
It's all
gossip gossip gossip gossip

Did you hear about her man
Man he was so angry then
Then he hit her with his head
Heading to jail made him mad

She was always drunk
Drunks know how to cheat
Cheating with the neighbor's dad
That was so very sad

It's all
gossip gossip gossip gossip gossip gossip gossip
Track Name: What If We Try To Get Along
in the rain
you look at me
two ships passing
in an endless sea

in the train
you talk to me
where are we going
there is so much to see

you only live once
don't hesitate now
life is so short
we got to make it work somehow

What if we try to get along?
What if we try to get along?
What if we try to get along?
Now!

black and white
Christ and Mohammed
living in peace
is so much better

don't impose your life style
on other people
like birds of a feather
let's live together

you only live once
don't hesitate now
life is so short
we got to make it work somehow
Track Name: The Moon King
the dark forces
will take you from behind
when you don't expect it
because you are so blind

it's all going downhill
we end up in the mud
men want to kill
streets filled with blood

the moon king will come
and take away your fun
you better run
cause the moon king will come

the moon king will come
and take away the sun
you better run
cause the moon king will come

they take over the world
in a steady rate
before you realize what has happened
it will be too late

the moon king is here
darkness rules the sphere
feeding off the fear
the moon king is here

the moon king is here
darkness rules the sphere
feeding off the fear
the moon king is here
Track Name: Starting All Over
I don't know where you are now
I still whisper your name
Remember the good times
Forget the fake lies

It's never too late
To start again
Come out of the dark
To be my friend

Starting all over
Starting all over again
Let's start all over
Let's start all over again

Starting all over
Starting all over again
Let's start all over
Let's start all over again, again, again
Track Name: Innocence Is Overrated
you act so innocent
but I know
what you think

you’re the problem to my answers
you reap what you sow

sometimes you pay the price for rolling the dice, rolling the dice

innocence is overrated
don't take it out on me

the world has changed
learn & adjust

sometimes you pay the price for rolling the dice, rolling the dice
there is still room for improvement but you can't see it, can you see it
Track Name: I’ve Heard You Tried To Find Me In Someone Else
I’ve heard you tried to find me in someone else
I hope you're happy now

The snow is falling steady
for the time of the year

I've heard you had a baby
must be a pretty one too

I’ve heard you tried to find me in someone else
good luck with that
good luck with that

the original
is always better
a copy
won't do
Track Name: (Living In A) Fairy Tale
you complain a lot
but you can't
change the world
with a magic want

the info bubble
makes you think you're right
no contradictions
in sight

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real

living on a cloud
high above the ground
keeps you floating
you are spellbound

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real

nothing will be better
when you open your eyes
you better keep dreaming
to stay satisfied

you are living in a fairy tale
you are living in a fairy tale
it ain't real
Track Name: Friday Afternoon
do you work to live
or live to work
you like your colleague
but your boss is a jerk

those dreary hours when do they go by
from Monday to Friday you just want to die

so you get alive Friday afternoon
you work all day all night
and finally it feels right
Friday afternoon

you work so hard
but you don't get paid
enough to feel content

those dreary hours when do they go by
from Monday to Friday you just want to die

so you get alive Friday afternoon
you work all day all night
and finally it feels right
Friday afternoon
Track Name: The Ballad of Sylvia Plath
Poetry will get you
nowhere
The dark clouds
will tear you apart

The kids are fine
The kids are alright

New York is a monster
It swallows you up
and spits you out

People try to help you
But their words mean nothing
A broken heart
can't be fixed

They shock you
They block you
But it's too late
Much too late

The only way out
is to go in
The end to you
A new start to me
Track Name: Nora
Oh how I wish
Just one more dance with you
To tell you how I feel
Do you still love me too

I'm gonna seek salvation
To the end of the line
To the bitter end
Then I will be fine

You're tough on the outside
But your heart is warm
And so confused
Track Name: I Won't Forget
I won’t forget
The closing door
I won’t forget
The empty floor
I won’t forget
The silent phone
I won’t forget
I was alone

I won't regret
I won't regret
Still I'm trying
To forget
Track Name: Hat Trick
I don’t believe
In magicians
Fairy tales and miracles
Science rules

But sometimes
Problems grow so big

The white rabbit
Has left the building
The theatre
Is deserted
The stage
Is empty

Who is leading
Us now

We need
A new
Hat trick
