Track Name: LEAVE ME OUT OF THINGS
LEAVE ME OUT OF THINGS

You don´t need to talk to me
Don´t need me wrapped around you
Be what you wanna be
But you must leave me out

Do what you wanna do
I´m lost but they have found you
Whatever you´re going through
You must leave me out of things

Well it is loud and clear
I hear what you say
You may even say I´m listening too
Try to convince me now
I don´t know the way
Tell all your friends I don´t have a clue

I´m looking at nothing
still with eyes open wide
You mean that I´m blind, it´s easy to see
Being right here
should make me unsatisfied
when there are better places to be
Track Name: GUNS & AMMO
GUNS & AMMO

Once upon a time there was a little eye
looking in the mirror to be seen
To be identified
To find out who was watching

Once upon a time there was a little ear
listening to the evil children sing
songs about the sun
how it made them joyful
how it made them shine

Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are

Once upon a time there was a little mouth
snapping for some dried-out mama boobs
only one last time
to suck itself unconscious
to hang there like a leach

Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are

The papers and their readers
now have their puppet leader
They’re here to be your partners in crime
All the way from zero
to front page superhero
and some television prime time

Once upon a time there was a little hand
squeezing off some point blank Uzi rounds
steady as a clock
Wasn’t even shaking

Once upon again there was a little eye
watching all the classmates going down
Then a final look
straight into the muzzle
straight into the flash

Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
Now, now you’re all ‘bout guns and ammo
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
all ‘bout guns and ammo you are
Track Name: LOSE YOUR HEAD
LOSE YOUR HEAD

Still in the middle of the night
Don’t know what is up or down
And I got you on my left and on my right
I almost scream without a sound

But some one taught me to shut up instead
‘til I know what it’s like to be you
It is my fault that you do bad
that you lose your head

You let me get what I deserve
And that must mean you treat me good
But being happy starts getting on your nerves
It’s me not you, it’s understood

And I am sorry for the tears you shed
So sorry for being the one
who made you say the things you said
made you lose your head

What would you be without a man
who is always weak and always wrong
and what would I be the day I understand
that the only time you make me strong

is when your life is hanging by a thread
when I carry the stones for your walls
when I'm acting like a living dead
when you lose your head
Track Name: GREAT TONIGHT
GREAT TONIGHT

No attempt to leave a trace
can be seen from outer space
You’re right
Just a spot in universe
That’s my blessing, that’s my curse
so why try

I’m happy that you tell it to me straight
that a friend like you
gives me the truth
Now
may I
at least feel great
tonight

So sad how soon we disappear
among the stars not many years
from now
There’s nothing that could guarantee
my place in eternity
no how

Anyhow I do appreciate
having friends like you
telling the truth
Now may I
at least feel great
tonight

You won’t hush ‘til I accept my fate
I understand that too
I really do
Still
may I
at least feel great
Track Name: OH SO CLEVER
OH SO CLEVER

Oh yeah they sang whiskey in the jar
Went wild in the karaoke bar
Played some air guitar
And then they all went to let us be
provided a chance for you and me
to make history
now that it was more

space for us
When everyone was gone
They had enough
And left the only ones
who knew it all
We were oh so clever

Oh no that was not some stupid chat
I know we’re pathetic to look at
Well, let’s drink to that
‘cause finally there’s more

space for us
When everyone was gone
They had enough
And left the only ones
who knew it all
We were oh so clever

Oh no we could hardly sit upright
But yeah we could save the world that night
just by being bright
Don’t know what the hell we talked about
An orgy of hyperbolic doubt
before passing out
At least it meant more

space for us
When everyone was gone
They had enough
And left the only ones
who knew it all
We were oh so drunk
and clever
Track Name: DID I ALMOST
DID I ALMOST

She said she hadn’t seen me in a while
All those years and how quickly they passed
I was dumbstruck by friendly hugs and awkward smiles
Then she was gone, it all happened so fast

Did I almost cry on her shoulder?
Was I just about to bring her back home?
Did she almost buy what I told her
that I’ve really grown
by having the time of my life
living alone?

So I made her bump into me by choice
just to watch her lips moving again
All my answers were given with my deepest voice
trying to hide how damn shallow I am

Did I almost cry on her shoulder?
Was I just about to bring her back home?
Did she almost buy what I told her
that I’ve really grown
by having the time of my life
living alone?

Did I almost think I didn’t really lie
to myself
Has she almost always been aware that I
couldn’t stand
to stand on my own
living alone

Well I tend to let chances slip away
Like the one right in front of my nose
So the words in my mind that I’d prepared to say
didn’t come out, it was not even close

That I’ve really grown
by having the time of my life
living alone?
