No more TV 03:19
Fire and smoke filled up my room I woke up swimming in sweat My nightmares around me created a pool It was a bad dream, or maybe not Lookin’ around my eyes won’t decipher What this black veil imminently brought I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching no more TV x2 Fire and smoke filled up my room I woke up swimming in sweat My nightmares around me created a pool It was a bad dream, or maybe not Lookin’ around my eyes won’t decipher What this black veil imminently brought I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching no more TV x2 And I’m pounding, hearts surrounding And what made my brain so high Oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching no more TV I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching any more TV I’m not watching no more TV

Solidarity 02:26
There is dark room inside that building Where men in suits enjoy old whiskey blends And as they sip it down they make decisions They bring to lives of millions bitter ends Stripped of any kind of dignity Contemplating sick serenity Using all forms of authority A system of total severity Deprived of social services Corrupted governments Foul play over the people Under the table agreements Justified outrage x7 There is a dark room inside those hearts It’s from the time they killed their own souls Shameless minds dressed up as gods Disperse the fear of distant black holes. Stripped of any kind of dignity Contemplating sick serenity Using all forms of authority A system of total severity

Scream 03:29
Stuck into a loathsome situation I refuse to take part in I wanna scream I see those around me sleepwalking Alone and circles forming I wanna scream , I wanna scream I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way Stuck into a loathsome situation I consume poisonous thoughts I wanna scream I see those around me sleepwalking Deprived of breath and love I wanna scream, I wanna scream I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way We find pleasure in this prison But when I look outside my cell I feel the warmth of the sun rays And I wish they were mine for a day I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way I wanna scream I wanna scream and run away in every way

Feel Sorry 02:40
You are so soft, to sing punk rock It’s not appropriate for you Punk rockers are the sweetest kids on earth They have a heart that’s made of gold All the rest is just a pose A costume for the Halloween You are so far from understanding Yet you are judging as if you know Oh oh oh oh oh ohhhh I feel so sorry for you now, I feel so sorry, so sorry I feel so sorry for you now, I feel so sorry, so sorry Quite possibly I’m scared Quite definitely I care But ultimately, it’s just me x2 You are so soft, to sing punk rock It’s not appropriate for you Unless you fake all sorts of shit You’ll be an outcast in a sec Well, I’ve got news for you my boy It’s not a fuckin’ competition It’s always been about the music And saying outright what you feel Oh oh oh oh oh ohhhh I feel so sorry for you now, I feel so sorry, so sorry I feel so sorry for you now, I feel so sorry, so sorry So fuckin’ sorry

Last night I didn’t lock the door And so my dog went out in the cold He must have frozen all night long But he came whistling the happiest song He had met the sweetest bitch The other day nearby a ditch Oh, she was all so lost and stray So he decides to make her stay Sweetest of girls stay now by my side I’ll give you shelter, no need to hide Those who hurt you are now long gone I will protect you, I’ll drive you home, he said He brought her home, I smiled in pain I saw in her eyes she’d leave one day All she wanted was to get some rest But my poor hound fell for our guest The time goes by and they grow by five My dog buzzed around like a bee hive And then one morning without a warning The bitch had left him and he stayed mourning Sweetest of girls stay now by my side I’ll give you shelter, no need to hide Those who hurt you are now long gone I will protect you, I’ll drive you home, he said Oh oh oh oh oh, he said…

Tanqueray 02:51
One fine day, she gets to say Tonight I’ll stay awake and pray To keep myself away from tanqueray That fine night she got into a fight She wasn’t right, can’t find the light Kept holding on to me so tight Hey, poor girl, give your hand I’ll take you home Hey, poor girl, rest in my car I’ll pretend I’m mom Over my fretful, feeling fingertips, Over my bitter-tainted, trembling lips, With melody, deep, clear, and liquid-slow. She woke up and threw up She dragged herself off from the bed And cursed to God she wasn’t, wasn’t dead She made tea she cleaned her shit She went on to sit and pray To keep herself away from tanqueray Hey, poor girl, give your hand I’ll take you home Hey, poor girl, rest in my car I’ll pretend I’m mom

The hardest thing is waking up To a day you know will tear you apart Simply because it’s one of the same The hardest thing is opening your eyes To all those you know are nothing but lies Simply because there is no one else The sun, the stars, where have they gone? The kiss, the touch of clever thought You’re left inside a big man’s cave The shadows you expect are always late The hardest thing is reaching out To another soul without being loud Simply because inner strings are cut The hardest thing is breaking free In a place, a spot that no one can see Simply because we have left none. The sun, the stars, where have they gone? The kiss, the touch of clever thought You’re left inside a big man’s cave The shadows you expect are always late Oh, where have you gone? I need to feel My spirit burn Oh, where is the light? I’m turning blind I’ll turn to dust The sun, the stars, where have they gone? The kiss, the touch of clever thought You’re left inside a big man’s cave The shadows you expect are always late

KK 01:51
KK is a true pain in the ass Sweet little addition in full blast I picked her up last Saturday She made me wait half of the day She never comes on time She never brings her file She has an array of boyfriends She’ll play them like cards in her hands She never comes on time She never brings her file She has an array of boyfriends She’ll play them like cards in her hands Oh KK , a true pain in the ass Sweet little trouble, that always makes a fuss I try to understand her thoughts But that train runs along her faults She never comes on time She never brings her file She has an array of boyfriends She’ll play them like cards in her hands She never comes on time She never brings her file She has an array of boyfriends She’ll play them like cards in her hands KK, KK, KK, KK….

In the darkest times, when all is black In the room you’re staying all day drunk Hold your breath for a moment and listen To this burden you carry Hold your breath for a moment and listen To this burden you carry Try my brother to piece together what is left of you All alone, defy the weather In vain, but still do In the darkest woods where you walk alone Among bare, naked trees, as one of their own Close your eyes, hit and feel your chest Shake the nest of crying birds Close your eyes, hit and feel your chest Shake the nest of crying birds Try my brother to piece together what is left of you All alone, defy the weather In vain, but still do

Pain 02:45
Oh pain my friend, sit down next to me I want us to stay silent and hold hands Oh pain, my friend you‘ll never leave my side I cannot refrain from calling you out loud Oh pain, my friend, my sweetest of truths Without you, I do not exist What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again? Oh pain my friend, you don’t have a name How come I have never thought one for you? You reside in my cells and dance in my mind Oh pain my friend, sit down next to me I want us to stay silent and hold hands Oh pain, my friend you‘ll never leave my side What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again? What will become of me, once you leave again?

Sierra you were white and pure as snow Now daisies grow where you died Sierra in your eyes there was light Of a kind, a gannet’s glide Cut those hands that have touched you Fuck those eyes that have scared you, I will never forget Cut those hands that have touched you Fuck those eyes that have scared you, I will never forget Oh oh oh oh my child Oh oh oh oh my sweet child Nobody cared, no front page news, you were all by yourself Nobody cared, no front page news, you were all by yourself Sierra I saw you dancing like a flake In the lake where you died Child of some no one you were thought There’s a lump in my throat Cut those hands that have touched you Fuck those eyes that have scared you, I will never forget Cut those hands that have touched you Fuck those eyes that have scared you, I will never forget Oh oh oh oh my child Oh oh oh oh my sweet child Oh oh oh oh my child Oh oh oh oh fuck you all
