Track Name: EXTERNAL FACTORS
drown your sorrows in a well
bury them where nobody can tell
put those fears in a box
together with a blanket of small pox

shoot your problems in the head
nuke those motherfuckers till they dead
put your doubts in a concentration camp
now this metaphor is getting out of hand

when everything is going wrong,motherfuckers sing along:
laa da da da da daa
we're still in love with life (yes we are!)
whatever may be going on, motherfuckers sing along:
laa da da da da daa
we're still in love with life


yes we are painfully aware
that negative emotions are there to
protect us from unnecessary harm
you could think of them as kind of an alarm

and alarms can be totally annoying
those pesky fuckers stop you from enjoying
everything in life that's good and great
so fuck that shit its really getting late

no, this is no plea for ignorance
but it really makes a difference
all you can do is try,
start looking for incompetence
and cope with your own impotence
external factors
Track Name: CALM AND STILL
we're all caught in the moment
always so close to fucking things up
we're our favourite opponent
laying down where moths and rust corrupt

we're all so full of wanting
always so prone to disappointment
we're nonstop pleasure hunting
in constant need of punishment

we're all terribly earnest
as if anything we build could last
we add fuel to the furnace
the future ashes of our past

we are making a big fuss
always pointing fingers, shifting blame
we love playing the big boss
erecting towers in our name

we leave the light on
but just a little spark
creates a shadow that hunts us through the dark
we keep on running
running of the mill
beneath the bridges water from the hill
calm and still

we're so tied to our concepts
not much room for flexibility
conscious of all the aspects
but still we lack in clarity

we're all living in patterns
but few ever do connect the dots
allegories and caverns
skeptics, believers and sunspots

we leave the light on
but just a little spark
creates a shadow that hunts us through the dark
we keep on running
running of the mill
beneath the bridges water from the hill
calm and still
Track Name: THE PONY THAT YOU WANTED SO BAD
spontaneous
combustion is the thing
I long for
when you're

complaining
when you are simply going
on for hours

I know, dear
the entire universe
is out to
get you

nobody
appreciates the things
you have to offer

all those selfless deeds,
all those countless acts of true compassion
holier than thou,
sinners come to you for their confession
paragon of light
we should all take part in your procession

well...
no

I figured
it must be difficult to know
that life is
unfair

I agree,
that the whole world has to know
of your ordeal

all pitched in
for a giant monument shaped in your
image

to make sure
that you will never forget
you are special

let me carry those bags for you
let me dryclean those slacks for you
such a shame that you never got that
pony that you wanted so bad

let me manage every chore for you
let me work my body sore for you
such a shame that you never got that
pony that you wanted so bad

let me be a little whore for you
let me empty every store for you
such a shame that you never got that
pony that you wanted so bad

the pony
that you wanted (you want it)
you would have been so happy
no more existential angst

the pony
it's representing jesus (sweet jesus)
you would have been delivered
from all the nasty things on this world

the thing is
we'd had to crucify it (the pony)
the eucharist communion
we'd had to drink its blood

and that is rather silly
Track Name: DANCE-OFF
I snap my finger, clap my hands
I take a kung fu fighting stance
I wear my super awesome pants
... this is a dance off

I shake my hips from side to side
i hope my moves don't look to white
there is just one way to make this right
baby this is a dance off

you will remember this fine day
when you see this wild boy sway
you are about to lose your mind
but , baby, i'll be kind

by day I'm working in IT
by night i'm wetting your panty
I am the sexual cavalry
... I'll chew your pants off

and when I'm going down on you
you know the fairy tales are true
I call this move the fu manchu
... I'll blow your pants off

you will remember this fine day
when you see this wild boy sway
yore about to lose your mind
...


I bedazzled my nutsack for you
look at it shine
it's a display of my potency,
a gift to the world from me
I bedazzled my nutsack for you
and isn't it fine
look at the way it refracts the light
let it guide you through the night ...

I'll have to ask you in advance
please recommend me to your friends
my reputation's in your hands,
... you'll get 20 percent off !

another thing I need from you
is a five out of five review
throw in a like on facebook, too
and you'll get 50 percent off !

you will remember this fine day
when you see this wild boy sway
you are about to lose your mind
Track Name: FAR AWAY
everyone know there's a snake in the grass and
everyone prays it won't be crossing their path
as long as someone else is biting the dust
we clasp our hands, in god we trust
it's far away, so far away ...

as long as evil is nowhere to be found and
me and my people are save and sound
we sing the song and praise the name
they make the rules, we play the game
it's far away, so far away from here

I'll turn my cheek and love my neighbour,
sometimes even some hard labour
all I really want to be
is nestled in security
it's far away, so far away from here

but should it ever reach my porch,
i'd grab my pitchfork, grab my torch
we'd drive the witches out of town
make the fire their nightgown

for they had led us far astray
made us leave the righteous way
those charlatans have rigged the game
pretty sure we're not to blame

we're not to blame
for anything at all
Track Name: LIKE, TOTALLY SUPER UNACCEPTABLE
I know you want to - go down that road
I'll guess you need to - sugarcoat
I don't believe you - when you say
it really is the devil (that) makes you feel that way

You know you've got to - do allright
you gotta work hard - work allnight
you gotta please'em - make them proud
another smiling face in the faceless crowd

oh, what is there to gain (this is like totally super unacceptable)
insane in the membrane (thats kind of the lamest deal ever made by anyone)

keep on playing house, of course of course
you can't show remorse, of course, of course
we're all dirty whores, of course, of course
we're all dirty whores, of course

your intentions - so pure, i know
your comprehension - it's rather slow
your motivation - crystal clear
the kinda subjugation being born of fear

I will keep your - pretty lies
I know it's hard to - ignore the vice
the pressure on us - everyone
the holy ghost, the father and the fucking son

you give an inch - they take a mile
an when you flinch - they fake a smile
this world is oh so - sinister
come get your consolation form the minister

always take one - for the team
but when it's their turn - they kick and scream
you're on your own now - best regards
promises will mostly end up breaking hearts
Track Name: ROYALLY SCREWED
rub it in - make sure everyone heard your
triumphant comeback burn
fuck with them - gonna make a mark gonna
piss on every tree in the park

some might say
it's pretty sad that you were
right today

take the spot - you'll be king for a while, it's
your only time to shine
watch your step - cause you might fall and
we will have no king at all

take it in
you will inevitably
lose that grin


go play it it cool,establish your rule
you'll be royally screwed
if they ever knew what you would do
dont let it show cant let them know
that you're not able to grow
it's all downhill from here

every day - I prepare my speech for
when you will finally reach your
breaking point - when it's all too much when
you have lost your golden touch

soon my friend,
your mediocrity will
find its end

take a hint - it is time to let go, I
prefered the status quo
break a leg - i don't mean good luck, I
literally want you to get fucked up

guess what's fun
a good old fashioned
hit and run

i hope you will die
in a car fire
if you were a knight
i'd poison your squire

listen to me
I hereby declare
that I'm fucking jealous
and life is not fair

so here I am
constantly comparing
grinding my teeth until my muscles are tearing
I have to admit and I can't say Im proud,
I'm just an asshole, like the rest of the crowd
Track Name: FINISH HIM
oh the weary things are plenty
and the time we have is short
shit, I am no longer twenty
and im getting fat and bald
I've kissed my share of women
and maybe once a man

but dude, it was a friday
and I was drunk again


oh the story of my life
turned out to be quite lame
a house, two kids, a wife
and no penny to my name
all the lessons folks have taught me
turned out to be quite wrong

'cause most of them were idiots
and this one wrote a song

all my life I was ready to roll with it
all my life I was ready to go
always hoped circumstance would make the most of it
but it never did show, no no no

oh, the peak of my achievements
greatest thing I ever did
was a round in mortal kombat
where I never took a hit
and the icing on the cake was
when the screen said "finish him"

i fumbled with the D-Pad
and just kicked him in the shin

I chose the path of least resistance
and with this I was okay
kinda felt like a spectator
in a poorly written play
I've grown accustomed to the boredom
you could say I feel at home

but sometimes I feel cheated
when I am on my own

all my life I was ready to roll with it
all my life I was ready to go
always hoped circumstance would make the most of it
but it never did show

soon we will be over the hill
and see if life is still
soulcrushing repitition
soon we will be over the hill
and see if there is still
reality television

if not i might just take up dynamite fishing
Track Name: SAVIOUR
you tied me to the radiator
in the basement of my guilt
promised to untie me later
once the trust has been rebuilt

I was softly taken hostage
by your lack of self esteem
so I didn't get the message
that I'm no longer on your team


and you will go
down the path of solitude
if you don't change your way
don't think this kind of attitude
is gonna make me stay

bitch and moan in moderation
everyone can be a mess
you embrace this situation
pushing it to the excess

you're a slave to your emotions
a scrap of paper in the storm
take refuge in pills and potions
so soft and warm

so soft and warm

I'm not your saviour
please get your shit together,
I beg you to get a hold of yourself
save your tears for a romantic movie
and stop projecting all that hatred on me
Track Name: UMBRELLA
spin me around
like an umbrella
read from my hand
like an old fortune teller
promise me probably possibly
maybe tomorrow

folding my hands
saying a prayer
fifteen balloons
I am walking on air

in any case sunny days will always have to follow


the rain
I'll always follow
the rain

brothers and sisters,
we'll all be forgiven
the less you give in,
the more you'll be driven to

vanity, insanity, calamity and
sorrow

yet in the end
there's a hole in the scripture
that bloody old thing doesn't
paint the whole picture
there is kindness in blindness but that's not what life is about

the rain
I'll always follow
the rain

I leave my footsteps in the sand
but the tide will always wash away everything,
I don't know where to begin,
the leafs are falling on the surface
leaving circles, ripples , patterns in patterns it's going on, on and on
on and on

gazing upon
star constellations
yearning for love, external
validations
the sheep and the shepard, the deer and the leopard, oh my

running around
screaming and mumbling
pillars of sand (that are)
constantly crumbling
life is for living yet quite unforgiving and mundane
Track Name: BEGGARS, LIARS, IDIOTS AND CUNTS
looking at photographs of people who once lived
tumbling through fantasies about getting lost at sea
thinking about every mistake ever made
searching for traces of dignity

beggars, liars, idiots and cunts
everywhere I go there's always a bunch of
beggars, liars, idiots and cunts
they rule the world, there is nowhere to run

inspiration, creativity
illumination, possibility
Filth, that is all Filth, there is no room in this world
Filth, that is all Filth, there is no room in this world

beggars, liars, idiots and cunts
everywhere I go there's always a bunch of
beggars, liars, idiots and cunts
they rule the world, there is nowhere to run
