Track Name: Keep The Change
We screamed: ‘Oh my God!’ as we got into the store
Blinded by the light
A man tapped me gently on my shoulder:
‘Hold on to your dreams and you can keep the change’

So let’s think this through
‘Cause what we’re about to do
Might turn out to be a huge mistake
Track Name: Porcupine
Disappointment, oh disappointment!
Fucking sticking to me like a stinky ointment
It ain’t something that I learned from F.O.D.
But when I was born into society

I’ve got inner heat,
I’ve got inner heat, I’m out!
If you’ve got inner heat,
If you’ve got inner heat, stay out!

We’re trying to survive as we get together
That’s why we start chatting about the weather
And I know it’s hard to smile
While dirt’s being rubbed into your face
What the hell? What is this place?

I’ve got inner heat,
I’ve got inner heat, I’m out!
If you’ve got inner heat,
If you’ve got inner heat, stay out!

‘You’re a really odd dude, man!
You know that, right?’
‘I do. But it serves a purpose.
I don’t really like people all that much.’
Track Name: Dirty Chocolate
DIRTY CHOCOLATE

The truth is bittersweet
The chocolate that we eat
Is poisoned by a ruthless industry
Where children’s dreams have drowned
To keep the prices down
They use them for their slave machinery

No, I don’t wanna be a part of this crime
Let them free, let them free now!

We’re blind ‘cause we don’t see
Half of the sick shit
Happening all around us
We’re deaf ‘cause all we hear
Are lies from western media
But If there’s just a grain of truth
About this human right abuse
We gotta think
Gotta stand up
Gotta scream out:
‘Let them free!’
Track Name: Punch Ready
I was hanging at the mall and
Taking drags of my stoge
Mustache man in uniform said:
‘Son, you better turn off that smoke!’

Let me explain
Well, I can’t see a switch, you son of a …

It was a nice day for skating
I was grinding on a rail
A cop showed up
‘They like guys with those crappy ear rings in jail.’

Let me explain
Well, I might look a mess, but you can kiss my AAAASS!

My answers hurt so bad
Track Name: Billy
A little man with a big guitar
Potent on stage and at the bar
He talks a lot and is mostly right
You better don’t argue, don’t start a fight

A human dictionary
Competent and hairy
Not only a member of the band
But an awesome guy and a friend

Billy, he really knows how to play
But I gotta ask for one thing anyway

Turn the bass down and listen up
My ears bleed, my head aches

Billy my friend, please don’t get me wrong
Let me explain while you go on
Your bass melody – so nice
But I gotta heed my doc’s advice

The ringing in my ear
Is what I really fear
‘Counterclockwise’ – the magic word
Only until it stops to hurt

Go on, just a bit more quietly
So wrong this step cannot be
Track Name: What's Your Style?
WHAT’S YOUR STYLE?

An idea that has been stripped down to its look
Is like a nice car without an engine:
Might look good, won’t take you far

So you’re going to a hardcore show
The only thing you do is judging other people
By the clothes they’re wearing
Come on, quit bugging me and tell me instead:

What’s in your head
What’s in your heart

Those are really nice tattoos
Matching your new shoes
All the piercings in your face
Are a genuine grace

But it’s not about how tight your pants are
What really counts is:

What’s in your head
What’s in your heart

Post this on facebook, sucker
And leave me alone
Post this on facebook, bitch
And leave me alone
Track Name: Officer Friendly?
Hey kid, what are you up to,
Alone out in the dark?
The favor of the night won’t help you
‘cause you’re wearing the mark

It’s your freakin’ ugly face
An embarrassing disgrace
Which I’m taking care of now
Just to put things straight

Don’t you move
Don’t you scream
Now your mine

No, I’m not
(You better watch out)
(Listen up! Listen up!)
(You better run fast)
(Can you here the noise?)

Hey kid, I gotta tell ya
Your timing’s kinda bad
I had a hell of a day and you’re gonna pay
Believe me I’m upset

This little gleaming on my chest
Not exactly for your best
You’re a troublemaker
And you’re going down by law
Trust me, this is righteous
‘Cause I told you so

No, it’s not
(You better watch out)
(Listen up! Listen up!)
(You better run fast)
(Can you here the noise?)

It’s the hangman’s time
In the streets at night
It’s the hangman’s time
In the streets by day
Track Name: Heidi Klum Ate A Kid
I know her so well, she don’t know me at all
If I only had her number, I could give her a call
She visits me every week on Thursday night
I just turn on the telly and I feel alright

Ain’t she sweet?
My knees get weak
Her piercing voice inside my head
Hard to ignore, hard to forget

Heidi Klum just ate a kid
And I can’t deal with it
The audience was so amused
And I’m left here confused

Heidi, sweetie, baby, what did you do?
How can I even dare to be mad at you?
Just one look into your empty eyes
And I know that loving you has its price

Our love is real
And that’s why you dumped Seal
Her piercing voice inside my head
Hard to ignore, hard to forget

Heidi Klum just ate a kid
And I can’t deal with it
The audience was so amused
And I’m left here confused

Heidi Klum just took a shit
And I can’t deal with it
The crowd started to applause
And I don’t the cause
Track Name: The Sailor Song
Sometimes I feel all alone
Sometimes I feel like the whole world is against me
Sometimes I just wanna stab myself in the back
But then I realize my arms are way too short
And I can’t stab myself in the back
That’s when I’m feeling hopeless and stupid
But today...

I’m doing alright
I’m feeling just fine
I’m doing alright
You motherfuckers here we go

When I was a sailor
The ocean was my home
I left my burdens all behind me
Was in peace with my own
It will never gonna be, never gonna be
Never gonna be the same no more
‘Cause I will never gonna see, never gonna see,
Never gonna see this place no more
Call me Jack Kerouac
’Hey Jack!’
Always on the road
Looking for the perfect moment
I'm a rolling stone

And it will never be the same again
Gonna leave it all behind farewell

It was a Friday when they tried to get me
All my creditors
‘Cause I was a buffing fluffing
Good for nothing gambler
Chiggachiggaching chigga ching che ching,
I spended (that’s drunkish for ‘spent’)
All my money on horse racing,
The bardoor’s burstin out cause they kicked it in,
One-eighty spin and jump right out the window
Goodbye I´m sorry and don´t be angry
The tide is in, I clear the port

I swear i will get back on track
And one fine day I´ll pay it back

Taking one step forward, taking two steps back
You never lose track and you never gonna slack
The doctor said: ‘Just go ahead.’
What do you know? I said: ‘Fuck that!’
Track Name: The Big Sleep
So here I am, I can’t go on
And I’m sick of trying to
What’s the use of staying strong?
I cannot think of one

Reason to go ahead
Reason to get out of bed
Night and day are all the same
So I just stay lying down

As I’m staring at the ceiling
I slowly go insane
You can tell by the scratches on my arms
I close my eyes and hope these voices fade away
Get off my back, I really need
A bit sleep

Optimistic
Self-deluding
Hope is a tale that you have to believe in
Or else you will fail to survive through deceiving

I’m not like that
I’m not like that

My bleeding bitten fingernails
They cannot catch the attention of my restless mind
As I’m trying to fall asleep
What’s that you’re saying, Grim Reaper?
Come on and sit next to me
Whisper in my ear and tell me about

The Big Sleep
Track Name: Nothing Brings Me Down
You think I’m lonesome
‘Cause I got nothing to hold on to and believe in
Screw all your fake-gods
And fuck politicians on their lie missions
No promise will be kept

Nothing brings me down
BRINGS ME DOWN
Nothing brings me down
NOTHING BRINGS ME DOWN

Please keep in mind everything has its end
Every time that you count on a friend
That kind of luxury I cannot afford
I threw all my fucking faith overboard

Nothing brings me down
BRINGS ME DOWN
Nothing brings me down
NOTHING BRINGS ME DOWN
‘Cause I don’t trust anyone
ANYONE
Nothing brings me down
NOTHING BRINGS ME DOWN
