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: 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: White Socks Black Bra
I met her at the bookstore
Old fashioned brown
She counted my money
And asked me out

We drank some coffee
Hurried back home
She untied
The knot in her hair

She wore
White socks black bra
She wore
White socks black bra
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: 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: 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: 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: I Am OK
Don´t look at me the way you do,
don´t ask me how I am…
I´ll tell you things that are not true
while the old tape spins in my head again…

Don´t ask me how I spend my days…
what do you expect me to say

(Chorus)
I´m okay… I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
I´m okay… I´m okay…
just bliss and rainbows come my way

I´ve worn-out trousers, an old hat,
a pair of holey shoes…
yes, I just wanted them like that,
all is really fine since I´m not with you…

Don´t ask me how I spend my days…
what do you expect me to say

(Chorus)
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I am lucky, I can say:
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
just bliss and rainbows come my way

(Bridge)
So next time,
don´t ask me if I’m fine,
just keep moving,
I`ll be fine… yes… I´ll be fine…

(Chorus)
I´m okay… I´m okay…
I keep singing all the day,
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
I am happy, I can say:
I´m okay… yes, I´m okay…
just bliss and rainbows come my way
Track Name: The Blonde Bombshell
born a carpenter
in the Show Me state
drawn to the silver screen
by a flying magnate

burned up so fast
but you will last
baby you are missed
you're still on my list

you’re the true Blonde Bombshell
you’re the first Blonde Bombshell
you're the only Blonde Bombshell
we’ll never forget you
my platinum blonde

you played an angel from hell
only fate could break the spell

bright flames burn out fast
but if you're an actress
your fame might last

in my dreams
we're on a date
dinner at eight?
