Track Name: Not Just Yet
When it's all getting to you
When it's all getting too much
When you're slowing down your pase
To the rhythm of the base
When tears are pumping through your veins
The blues is writing on your face

What else to do but take the rain
Let it wash you down the drain
Take of your clothes and copulate
Cry your tears and fight your fate
You're many persons change your name
Adjust compass and sail away
Go where you never dared to go
Can you do it flying there all solo?

Staring at a paper white
Drawing in the wrinkles black
Badly lit by candlelight red
It's not doing you any good
No it's not doing you any good
Sitting there and turning blue
Feeling bad with nothing to do
Now don't let it make you sad
Now don't let it make you bad
At least not now, no not just yet

As blood has washed away your tears
Emptiness is all that remains
Take the blues, let it fill your brain
Switch to jazz when thinking of a dame
Yeah don't let it get to you
don't let it make you sad
At least not now, no not just yet
No not just yet
Track Name: Bye Bye Man
I know what to do
And I know just how to do it
Get my phone out my pocket
Press and say: ‘what about it?’
‘What’s up, how are you doing?’
‘What’s up and what’s cooking?’

But why do today what I can do tomorrow?
Why do anything before tomorrow?
Is there at all some time to be borrowed?

What’s up, how are you doing?
What’s up and what’s cooking?

I’m just standing here
blocking my way home
I’m losing my heart fast
it’s monotone sounds bad
But nothing gets done man
for ever halfway there

And all the while the leaves are falling
The snow is cracking
The seeds are hatching
and the sun goes out till late at night

And I’m just watching it
I’m just watching it go by
Bye-bye man Bye-bye man
Track Name: Just A Sound
I’m just a sound
A light vibration
Not very loud
Sometimes simply
Ebbing away
Into a day or a night

I fly a little
and I roam a little
I fade in
and I fade out

Sometimes I’m a cry
Sometimes a howl
Or a sniff in the dark
I could be a rhythm
Mixing beats around
Or a melody
Accompanying chords
in soft timbre brown
Track Name: Fairytale On The Rocks
I see here everyone is happy
They all love the ones they may marry
It's like a fairy-tale on the rocks
And I'm so drunk and sober
I hear love is talking dirty
It makes my thoughts go right out of here

They kiss and smile and kiss again
Like lovers are supposed to
And I don't know what to do, I just don't know

Maybe I should get out of here
and finish this last gallon of beer
Spread out my wings, shoot away my tear or maybe I

Should I sing a song alone for me?
Tell Cupid that I'm ready
Make the moon come down and fall for me
Force the stars to shine a light on me
Go write adds in lovers magazines
or steal the flag of Playboy City

Should I ride out, be a Romeo a day
or Robin Hood and steal Marianne away
Be a gigolo junky, get laid and paid
or a dealer-pimp and never have to wait
Go out flying without a parachute
and hit rock bottom, maybe I should

Nobody smiles to me no more
May had it coming, I don't know
Haven't done nothing, nothing at all
Haven't done nothing, nothing at all

I wish this day would go away
but only tomorrow can end this day
And tomorrow is so long away it’s too long away

My dreams are small & simple
I want love without a wrinkle
The perfect girl to quarrel with
The girl to laugh & sorrow with
The girl always to be alone with
The perfect girl to set up home with
The woman to bury me stiff
One day somewhere & I will stay right here, my dear
Track Name: Seven
In her room she sits and she sighs in little bits
Pieces go out the window with remnants of shadows
She moves her stool, it cracks
and ricochets memories inside her head

White hair is waving, the lady with the stick
She stands on the ledge where her little boy got sick
Listening to sounds, fading from below
a singer's song, wind whistles
steps of a crow

She's sixteen in bed with wet shirt and mini skirt
She's down on her knees
trying to make wind out of a breeze
She's doing it twice
it’s an action to paralyze

She's raining smiles before she cries
and speaks no more
With colorful spring in her eyes
and nameless energy within her secret smile

A feather of a dove sheers through forest air
and lands on the eyes thru which you stare
While morning dew falls fresh beside princess
and I only just caress

She kept in a box a dried up tear
a memory to a little bit of fear
When words were numb and one look
was worth a million songs

As beautiful as sundown
As fresh as sunrise
As shy as frail eyes
She's wandering in timeless
setting foot in rimeless
To hear the bird out saying
I love you my rain
Track Name: Late Nights & Early Mornings
late night streets abandoned roads
early morning blues on raincoats
late night rumblings and staring cool
early morning sirens for the dead and fool

late night sniffing piles of coke
early morning heroin, bleeding joke
late night murders through the heart
early morning payments, credit cards

late night singing telephones
early morning movie marathons
late night windows, alone in bed
early morning sorrows, smoking sad

late night tears sliding down
early morning bloody wedding gown
late night dancers on a screen
early morning trains coughing steam

early morning blooming neon blossom
late night moves things you've forgotten
early morning hissing traffic snooze
late night corners stained with booze

early morning bags toys of wind
late night poetry tossed and winged
early morning footsteps, a sneering voice
late night cobwebs on Dinky Toys

early morning frail fiction moment
late night meets a new opponent
early morning wake ups no tea or toast
late night bye byes, love you most

early morning groom greets the day
late night hookers won't you stay
early morning horizon bending slow
late night sun is all ready to go
Track Name: Bathroom Fight
There's a fight going on upstairs
There's fighting going on in there
There's blood on the tiles
skulls are cracked in half
no skin is left, no hair
it’s an orgy of death in there

Who are these madman men
that are wrecking up our home?
How long have they been in there
tearing flesh from our bones?

There's a fight going on upstairs
There's fighting going on in there
There's a fight going on upstairs

Got murder while bathing
Heavens dreams are fading
Can’t speak, can’t act, can’t help them
So crawl away, run away
and praise them. Praise them

Do you know these madmen then?
Maybe you’re one of them?
Take of that suit and smile
you’re not just an ordinary guy
your words must have traveled far
guided bullets through broken hearts
You threw bombs in every yard
You’re a self made God

There’s a fight going on upstairs
There’s a fight going on right in there
There’s a fight, they are fighting
There’s a fight going on upstairs

It’s not in my house
It’s someone else’s
Track Name: Make A Joint
Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
last one died a minute ago
Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
last one died a minute ago

You know I’m the man, I’m the man
I’m the man the clown
Yeah I’m the man, I’m the man
the man with a frown

You gotta hear what I say, do as I do
save your smiles for me and grin ever so silently
it’s for the good of our souls
that I prey on you you know

There’s no development, there’s no style
you’re just sitting there, hiding out your time
there’s nothing going on, this is not your life
follow me I’ll show you how it’s done right

You should write how I’m writing,
talk how I’m talking
and act how I’m acting
cause it’s all so much better,
it’s all so much greater
then everything you do

Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
last one died a minute ago
Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
last one died a minute ago

I think you’re pathetic man, you’re forgetting who I am
maybe you never did; I’m sorry then
All you do is take a piss on me now,
so I say fuck to you all now!

There’s no development, there’s no style
you’re just sitting here, hiding out your time
There’s nothing going on, this is not your life
follow me I’ll show you how it’s done right

Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
last one died a minute ago
Make a joint, make a joint, make a joint compa
suck it slow every second or so
make a joint, make a joint
Track Name: The Silence Of Honesty
What will I say when I see back her face?
What will I feel when we stand in embrace?
How will we look after so many years?
What will I say when I see back her face?

Why do we go back in time?
there is no more you and I
Whatever is there to find
but some old storylines?

Now the nights are getting longer
to bring back what has gone
And the days are creeping closer
to the day that will come
I’ll tap her on her shoulder
and all is silenced out
And we’ll stare and compare
if we still look the same

And maybe we’ll dance before anything is said
let our eyes do the talking
and the booze in our head
Maybe we’ll dance before anything is said
let our eyes do the talking
and the booze in our head

What will I say when I see back her face?
What will I feel when we stand in embrace?
How will we look after so many years?
What will I say when I see back her face?

Why do we go back in time?
there’s no more you and I
whatever is there to find
but some old storylines?
Track Name: Keep Me Alive
Keep me alive when I'm dreaming
Keep me alive when I sleep
Keep me alive when I love you
Keep me alive when I've gone
away from you
away, away, away

I've seen you asleep and looked in your eyes
I smiled your smile and dreamt for a while
I spoke your voice and I lived your stories
I touched your skin and did your shoulders

so Keep me alive when I'm dreaming
Keep me alive when I sleep
Keep me alive when I love you
Keep me alive when I've gone
away from you
away, away, away

And I'll be back if you want me too
I'll be back if you need me too
Today, tomorrow or the day before
With a flip of a coin
and we're going airborne
Airborne, airborne, airborne

Keep me alive when I'm dreaming
Keep me alive when I sleep
Keep me alive when I love you
Keep me alive when I've gone
away from you
away, away, away
Track Name: Useless Man
Good evening
You know
I'm a useless man of only 23
I have no love to live for me
just a dog and some memories
a fake piano and a room door key
that's all there is for me
cause I'm a useless man of 23
I do hope you understand

Can't unbutton my collar
Can't shoot for a dollar
Tell a joke to my mother
Put one foot before the other
I don't know head from tails
or how to cut my nails
What are cows what are whales
or how to hoist my sails I don’t know

I can't have reason with Satan
or God that create him
Make eggs with bacon
or whisky not shaken

I don't know day from night
how to take a bite
how to fly a kite
or to get out of sight

I can't talk to a stranger
Lick blood from a razor
Beat a Power Ranger
Or fly on a ventilator

I don't know forks from knifes
What to do with my life
What's a pothole what's a wife
and I go to bed with a bee-hive
Well...sometimes
Track Name: Dancing Smile
A dancing smile she was
just beautiful all the while
it lasted through the night

Till morning broke
and we said goodbye
The tale ends here,
no surprise

I fight my way home
Depression in my mind
But all I have to do now is think of her smile
Yeah all I have to do is think of her smile

She was dancing slow
while music was fast
I got caught her flow
and went on for the ride

She was my first dance
in a long long rhyme
that only exists now
when she’s in my mind

My sweet voluptuous smile
For ever beautiful in paused time
I thank you for giving me your smile
I thank you
