Track Name: Ballad of one girl and a madman
Should you have to lick my door,
Than I don’t need my shirt.
A liver like my life,
Adds sugar to my thirst.
I’d rather fit my toy
Wide rivers form a skin
Try to lock it in my lower side

Have to get my bus,
I have to catch my tail
I’d love to turn my bed, I just can’t
Nobody read my mail,
Uf, Somebody lit my mail

Shouldn’t lick my bad cells
Then I’d better hit my bone
What a little life I get
She sells the sides as well

Got a rattle in my bag
There’s a wizard in my coat
Use a saddle in my bed,
no let my pictures grow

total madness come on

there’s a rattle in my bed
another snake is born
I never lose my share
What I never wanted for
I’m lost, she’s coming, she banged
With the shit she’s got to stay
Oh no she’s gonna stay now
Buggar in my hell

Refain refrain now
Track Name: Supermarket hero
I am your supermarket hero, your supermarket hero
I am your supermarket hero, your supermarket hero

Wondering what’s on your mind if you go
and squeeze me in a day
Go shopping in your favorite supermarket mall
with a nightingale
I heard your music, touched your hand,
sniffed your dog and watched your friend
Saw a girl that walked around the corner looking for a man

I’ll be your supermarket hero

Late at night still wondering if you would come
and ask me for a light
you shooked me up and told me that she was
eager to pick up a fight
I had no money and I had no dope and had nothing to give
away
The girl at the counter said: “…”
You know who I am

I am your supermarket hero
Your supermarket hero

(repeat)
Track Name: Butterfly
Saw them eat off gold plates until the morning falls
And if you paint my ghost life don’t wear no crown
Oh yeah, you’re lonely, but can you tell me why
‘cause in the end it’s all just chickenshit and burned up lies

saw them dance like ghost men with no reflection ‘cause
all the friends around you are too old to be born
oh yeah you’re lonely but can you tell me why
‘cause in the end we’re all just a butterfly, just a butterly
butterfly, butterfly

Get a life you’re an old god, get a life you’re an old god now
I’m loosing you without a trace of being good
And in the end you’re just a friend
That was not even close to help
Me out in different moments I was you, I was you

They broke my fortress, they cut my tree
Leaving an endless white masterpiece
oh yeah I’m lonely but can you tell me why
‘cause in the end we’re all just a butterfly, just a butterly
butterfly, butterfly

Get a life you’re an old god, get a life you’re an old god now
I’m loosing you without a trace of being good
And in the end you’re just a friend
That was not keen on heaven help
I never tried to understand
Your coolness was not showing off my friend
So get a life, get a life,

Get a life you’re an old god, get a life you’re an old god now
I’m loosing you without a trace of being good
And in the end you’re just a friend
That couldn’t not stand behind his man
I never tried to understand you’re cool, you’re so cool
Track Name: Scarface
Scarface came to dinner, and he was my friend,
I knew him so well since we were little boys
He had brought a king size burger with cheese
and schrimps on the side, didn’t know what that was for
He also had brought a bottle of the finest red wine,
and a fork, but nothing to uncork
now he can never enter my house not once again,
yeah you’ll understand, ‘cause the story goes like this.

Scarface had a chance to break my hand
But I’m grooving on love
Shake, shake, scarface, move yourself
‘cause I’m grooving on love

but after two weeks he was there again with all of his friends
and his entire family
he had three cute sisters, well that’s what I thought
they messed up my house, all filled with babyshit
it wasn’t even clean since the last time
Scarface came to my house with the bottle and the cork
and the goddamned thing he forgot
well he can never enter my house not once again
yeah you’ll understand, ‘cause the story goes like this.

But just yesterday I heard knocking at my door so I went
upfront to have a closer look
There was a dog sitting at my front door
It was the dog of my friend
Scarface’s back in town oh what a bloody mess

Scarface had a chance to break my hand
But I’m grooving on love
Shake, shake, scarface, move yourself
‘cause I’m grooving on love

shake shake yeah honey you can shake shake…
it was a morning in september and I was driving kids to
school, never heard about a monster that could drink a
swimming pool
I heard it once I heard it twice and I could never understand
that the memory for those little kids was
exactly what you ment
that I don’t wanna be your substance I’m not going to be
king the only way to express myself lies in the word I sing
and maybe in a next live I’ll be guided by a god that will tell
me that it was all wrong, it was all wrong, I don’t know how

I was still driving I was heading south, I had to go to work,
the place where you constantly have to act like a jurk
I told them once, I told them twice but they just coulon’d
understand that the place for me lies outside and not here
behind a desk
And I don’t wanna be their sultan, I’m not going to be king
I’m acting like the son of god until they lose their faith
and maybe in a next live I’ll be guided by their god that will
tell me that it was all wrong, it was all wrong, I don’t know
how

she’s no monster (repeat)

she’s no monster (repeat)
Track Name: World
World, on your marks, I need space to go on
World, on your marks, I need space to go on

I don’t like this fever
It burns the guts out of my soul
Pooring out the faeces

And if you watch my tv
You’ll see violence without hate
Just fed up to take it

World, on your marks
World, on your marks

Cultivate your weakness
Burn it down and leave no trace
Smell the core of your decay
Stop your tears from leaking
Merky fluids that could burn
Holes in our faces

World, on your marks
World, on your marks
Track Name: Unicorn
I don't wanna be the single one, single one, single one
in a band
I don’t like that uniform, uniform, uniform
in my land
I don’t have my life complete, life complete, life complete
on my side
I don’t know my superstar, superstar, superstar
pretty tight
You got to fight

That’s right, no left, no right

No I won’t hang out with anyone, anyone, anyone
but my friends
No I won’t take out my unicorn, unicorn, unicorn,
makes no sense
Take it home where it belongs, it belongs,
it belongs on a pile
Give it to the paranoid, paranoid, paranoid
for a trial
You got to fight

That’s right, no left, no right
Track Name: Many boys
you’re so close now, guess you’re mine
nobody knows not even you and I
we dance the future, trouble’s cold
“mess up my name and I will mess up yours”

but I don’t want to disappear
go dance my lover
commencing countdown one-two-tree
and see that we are all alone

‘cause you’re so close now, guess you’re mine
nobody knows not even you and I
we dance the future, trouble’s cold
“mess up my name and I will mess up yours”

but I don’t want to disagree
go dance my lover
commencing countdown one-two-tree
and see that we are all alone

it’s a setup

many boys, many boys are strong
if you look from a distance
and the girls, cry a waterfall
to hold on to their tradition

Many boys, many boys don’t have a gun to be sure they’re
guiltyand the girl cry waterfalls to have
Their little setup, a major setup, it is a setup,…
Track Name: Virtual gravity
I feel all right with my head under a stone all alone
And I can’t fly ‘cause the weights around my chest are
keeping me low

I’t true you’re a damn good reason to go out and dance
I hope that I can take this fence

Virtual gravity
Virtual gravity

I feel OK now that I have come from under shade lanes
And I can stay in these odd and misty clouds
around your frames

I’t true you’re a damn good reason to go out and dance
I hope that I can take this fence

I feel all right, no time to hide,
I’m gonna climb up that hilly mountain side

Your fathers hand contrains me flying like a pie
Into my face I take it flying like a pie
A broken nose can not go flying like a pie
Pa-pa-pie pa-pa-pie
I wish that I could raise my hand…

Virtual gravity is keeping me down
Virtual gravity, my feet on the ground
Virtual gravity is keeping me down
Virtual gravity
Track Name: Buskidscumbags
The boy went to his bed and never never slept no more
The girl he saw that day had never been his way before

The girl that made him smile was sitting on his bus to school
And only for a sec she turned around and made him grow

But there were buskidscumbags
And they will never try to be my friends
Their only purpose on this earth is to enjoy a little tease

Buskidscumbags, no they will never try to be my friends
They’re seventy-four on a bus heading to school
And what I really want to know
is if that little girl thought I was cool

the boy said to his bed:
“you’ll never be the same no more,
‘cause I have sowed my seed
and love will grow out pretty soon.”

But there were buskidscumbags
And they will never try to be my friends
Their only purpose on this earth is to enjoy a little tease

Buskidscumbags, no they will never try to be my friends
They’re seventy-four on a bus heading to school
And what I really want to know
is if that little girl thought I was cool

whatever I want, whatever you need
those buskidscumbags made me freeze

The boy went to his bed and never never slept no more
The girl he saw that day had never been his way before

(Repeat some parts from here)
Track Name: Yellow Caribbeans
I was a little bit afraid to see your face
when you came in turned on the light
The bloodstains on your little shirt
made it impossible to think of going out
I know that nothing’s really true until it’s said,
until the words have made a sound
The mystery behind it all was fading out
After two years and ten more guys

Don’t wanna be the one that hurts, no I don’t wanna,
wanna be the one that hurts

But now I’m coming home and see that face
into a yellow simple life
Indecency is what you gave, turned it around
and made it pretty much all right
I know that nothing’s really true until it’s said,
until the words have made a sound
The mystery behind it all was fading out
After two years and ten more guys

Don’t wanna be the one that hurts, no I don’t wanna,
wanna be the one that hurts
Track Name: Sugar
I don’t like to be your soulmate
I would love you like a man
I will always be your sad boy
And I will tease you like a friend

And I’m the guy you understand
That helps you out when you’re not there
When you’re not there

I will never be your sad boy
I will please you like a friend
Under a sky of hope I do love you so
If you would leave me now I won’t let you go
All the good fortune that I have installed
Would have a worthless meaning next to everything I adore

That I’m the guy you understand
That helps you out when you’re not there
When you’re not there

The wine is out so when you go
Bring the sugar
My body dried up you should know
Bring it bring it bring it
The wine is out so when you go
Bring the sugar
My body dries I need to know
Bring it bring it bring it
Bring it bring it bring it

(Repeat)
Track Name: Confusion
In my head you have moved the furniture around
I can not find my own strategic summer sign
confusion, confusion
I was born with a little help from an old friend
Secret coïncidence to fall into your land
confusion, confusion

Every year the summer brings me
energy and a beating heart
every year the summer’s looking bright

In your head I have moved the furniture aside
You have not lost your own strategic summer sign
confusion, confusion
You were torn bit by bit and never had a chance
Secret coïncidence – you keep it in your hand
confusion, confusion

Every year the summer brings me
energy and a beating heart
every year the summer brings me
pheromones to find you oh girl,
you win my heart

nanana, nanananananananana,
nanana, nanananananananana,
confusion, confusion

nanana, nanananananananana,
nanana, nanananananananana,
confusion, confusion
Track Name: Attitude
Some friends are trying to peel our skin
But they will never be a part of
The life that we would like to live
A house where every stone’s a part of
Dark face that’s not faking truth
My force and that force in you
Don’t run with a burning shoe

attitude, attitude, this is my attitude
Attitude, attitude, this is my attitude

A broken key can please a nun
But it can never be a part of
The whole extension of your sun
Enlightening me ‘cause I am part of
Tall hope for a better place
Where we can stay inside
Don’t run with a bleeding vain

attitude, attitude, this is my attitude
Attitude, attitude, this is my attitude
