1.
Sitting in a car or lying on a roof, standing by the fire or pissing on the roots, walking on the dam, proudly, at noon, looking at the road signs or singing an old tune. People spend their time staring at the sky, you never know why. Every passing hour of every passing day, from the bottom to the top, from the thief to the cop, whatever comes a day, no matter what you say, this is just that simple, there’s nothing you can change. People spend their time staring at the sky, you never know why

Happy & safe 03:34
Bye bye to you You know I’ll miss you And I know it’s hard for you to leave everything. You sold your house, your package is done, and tomorrow your old life will be gone in the air. I hope you’ll find a place, happy and safe. I hope you’ll have a pretty life with your wife and your children around. Bye bye to you You know I’ll miss you And I know it’s hard for you to leave everything.

Sad & lonely 03:17
Sad and lonely, the way I feel when you’re gone the way I feel when you’re far away Sad and lonely, but I know lights will guide you home, even when you have a bad and wrong day Sad and lonely Like in an old David Lee Roth song Sad and lonely Just like Romeo in Verone Sad and lonely Proud and happy The finest years I ever knew were all the years I had with you, baby Proud and happy To be the man who’s in your arms, to be the one who drives the car back home Proud and happy Like in an old David Lee Roth song Proud and happy Just like Romeo in Verone Proud and happy When you’ve got a heartache and your mind’s confused, when you’re sleeping bad and feeling abused, when your days just seem right out of a dream and just make you want to shout out really loud, if you got no space between your teeth, if you want to get back on your good old feet again… just switch you up from sad to happy!

I hate you 03:15
You’re looking at me with your wide-opened eyes and what you see baby is a bunch of lies I’m not that funny It’s not my fault You make me sometimes feel like an astronaut I hate you with all my heart You once put your faith in someone who looks like me But that guy you once knew just disappeared I hate you with all my heart
5.
Bring with you a photograph machine so you can catch the faces and the smiles of people that you like. You’re having trouble with remembering things. Just write letters and buy flowers for your friends and you’ll remember them forever, until the end. Leave the tape recorder “on” to capture all the songs, the voices, and the sounds, before they hit the ground. They’ll finally escape in a new shape. Just write letters and buy flowers for your friends and you’ll remember them forever, until the end. You recall the sound of the past, you know it won’t last. A sad machine on repeat plays your dream on the beat...

I’ve spent my life travelling the world looking for something I’ve never found. It’s hard to believe what I’ve seen. Now all seem to be part of a dream. Betrayal and conspiracy were the only things I had for free. I never meant to be untrue but those times around I had to. It’s easy to fall you don’t need a push my friend. Never trust anything but the lines of your hand. When the thrill is gone, when your bad teeth hurt, you’d better go and hide your head in the dirt… Goodbye, goodbye… I’ve spent my life traveling the world looking for something I’ve never found. It’s hard to believe what I’ve seen, and that I’m still around.
7.
This is not my heart You broke it in two But that won’t stop me from loving you I tried to do my best I guess I did it wrong Don’t leave me waiting too long My head’s spinning round faster and faster Here I stand on the edge of disaster Before the rain falls on me Stay another night until the morning brings sweet thoughts of me in your dreams I tried to do my best I guess I did it wrong Don’t leave me waiting too long I know every smile might be your last You’d better get out while you still can Before the rain falls on you
8.
The way it is, the way it was, the way it has always been. Refracted light, dead sea, bells ain’t chiming for victory. No more shadow, no more light, no more God on your side When the dark comes falling from the sky. They’re gonna have rough days, but memories will keep them moving. Distant cities burning, dead trees are falling. No more hero in the shades, no more people in the graves When the dark comes falling from the sky. The way it is, the way it was, the way it has always been. Refracted light, dead sea, bells ain’t chiming for victory.

The sad ugly boy lives in the outskirts. Old faded pants and a Kurt Cobain shirt, (lightnings over shadows). The sad ugly boy stares at the world He’s always been told heaven’s like home. No future only tomorrows… that’s enough. The sad ugly boy is filled up with dreams. He wishes he could jump into his TV screen with girls and superheroes. The spots on his skin he wears like pins. It’s like he comes out of a Rock’n’roll machine. Chemicals and rainbows... that’s enough.
11.
...I’ve never seen the ocean, never been to Coney Island. It fills my heart with pain. Sometimes I feel like a hooker, I spend my time kissing strangers, one day they’ll find me dead. Sesame noodles on the rocks, my favourite dish in Chinese blocks. I’ll never go away.
