Track Name: You never know
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
Track Name: Happy & safe
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.
Track Name: Sad & lonely
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!
Track Name: I hate you
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
Track Name: Flowers for my friends
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...
Track Name: Betrayal and conspiracy
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.
Track Name: Before the rain
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
Track Name: The way it is
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.
Track Name: Sad ugly boy (part 1)
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.
Track Name: Sesame noodles
...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.
