SONG LYRICS

what could I ask for?
what should I last for?
what is the best for me?
what do i know?

what is that breath for?
we’d be livin‘ too fast now
gotta get me a rest, girl
we wither
together

the day I met you
it was a bad bad day for the blues

oh heart I beg you
don’t dare to let loose
the day I met you
it was a bad bad day for the blues

what is that past for ?
what’s in that glass, lord ?
vanish one last time
with me
baby, let’s sink back to the days of roses
deliver me right to these moments
we felt incurably alive
febrile nights
where no beauty has to hide

oh heart I beg you
don’t dare to let loose
the day I met you
it was a bad bad day for the blues

no side effects
no in-between
I came to last
inside that dream

don’t step back from this abyss of mine
while I drop another selfish line
like „I love you“
it’s too late
can’t stop thinking of you“

oh heart I beg you
don’t dare to let loose
the day I met you
it was a bad bad day for the blues

It’s Jimmy „Mumble-the-Peg“
who told Billy „the Knife“
what happened down at the market last night

they ‚ve got a brand new show
way down at the fleet street
with creatures he ain’t seen in his life

here at the freak show
where the trouble began
with a man named Frederick Treeves

his life did change
when he saw Joseph Merrick
formally known as „the Beast“

Here comes the Elephant Man
Here comes the Elephant Man
But his name is John Merrick and he ain’t no animal

well, Mr Treeves saw the chances
when he saw the monster
and he brought him to his office that day
John was a sensation
-his strange deformation
and so Frederick Treeves made him stay

the doctors were scared
they thought Johnny was insane
‚cos they kept on thinking with their eyes
but then the beast started praying down on his knees
and suddenly they started to realize…

Here comes the Elephant Man
Here comes the Elephant Man
But his name is John Merrick and he ain’t no animal

so John lives in London
up under a roof
of a hospital since that day
Merrick started talking, painting and working
like a common man

but after a while
Jack the Ripper started killing
and you know people are scared of the strange
so they accused John Merrick of all these crimes
and the trouble started again

For the Elephant Man
Here comes the Elephant Man
But his name is John Merrick and he ain’t no animal

Staring at some lips
like no one’s watching
let’s share a kiss
let’s force these tears „keep dropping!“
longing for a face
and untold smiles
this shot of poison
it might taste better for a while

I need a system that i don’t need
i need a rhythm i don’t feel
I want a vision that ain’t real
want to listen but not hear

Heal a wound
but not too soon
be grateful
you still got a body left to ruin

I need arrogant lipsticks
faked enthusiasm
hair as black as crows
decomposing decisions
I need to borrow a dime
Need to worry for a while
I want to camouflage till there is nothing left to hide

Heal a wound
but not too soon
be grateful
you still got a body left to ruin

Everybody I know got terribly old
and everybody I adored got terribly bored
Everybody I love got terribly soft
and everybody I wanted moved to London

Heal a wound
but not too soon
be grateful
you still got a body left to ruin

drag my body
to the cool cool well
well, the blood is drippin‘
on the boiling sand

they stole my boots
and they took my land
they raped my sister
and they buried a bullet in my chest

it was five days ago
jerry the worm
told Bad Bob Kruger
he found gold on my farm
when I heard their horses
and i heard their shots
i told Mary
„baby hide in the truck and pray to god!“

but then the clock struck twelve
i felt down on my knees
I asked god for help
i am a man of peace
oh lord, forgive me
there’s a devil up my sleeve
and i can hear him singing to me:

„get your gun!
let it sin!“

There comes a time when a peaceful man got to let it sin!

one by one
they fell like dominos
the pulse was pumping
and the blood ran cold
their gurgling screams
died away in remorse
teeth and pieces of flesh
all over the floor

Now I’ve been dragging my poor body to the cool cool well
I’ve been thinking about the heavens
while I’m wading through hell
the pain is sizzling
and the nerves they burn
there is only one bullet left inside the gun
i let it hum
the devil sings along

time has come
to get annoyed
you’re looking good
gettin‘ paranoid
day by day
inch by inch
I lose a bit
of my former glance

they say live your life
as if each day was the last one
someday you will be right

they say if you’re getting bored
just eat a pill
don’t ache no more
It’s totally dull

you’re totally dull!

it’s ok
you hate yourself
get in line
i got limited tears

here’s a phone
call for help
i’ve gotta go
to look at you
is hard to take

don’t ask me why
just close your eyes
we’re used to dyin‘
don’t strain yourself

they say live your life
as if each day was the last one
someday you will be right

they say if you’re getting bored
just eat a pill
don’t ache no more
It’s totally dull

you’re totally dull!

it’s ok
you hate yourself
get in line
i got limited tears

moonlight seems to be wasted
‚cos it ain’t shining down on you
Baby i guess
we ‚re all guests
and we’re just passing through

Please fill in another line
I’ll cut myself a half
so I can love you twice

the world is done
so let’s have a ball
I’ll pick you up at 8 o’clock
and we can watch mankind fall

meet you on the opposite side of the road
„live the life you love“
as a child I’s told
walking on
but all i love
blows up like smoke
and this is all I know

here i am
scratching at your door
just an off-tuned body
that needs to be adored

my opinion –
just a king without a kingdom
emotional phrases
pull my daisies
the world is crazy
but I try my best
wear my sunday best
getting ready to confess

Please fill in another line
I’ll cut myself a half
so I can love you twice

the world is done
so let’s have a ball
I’ll pick you up at 8 o’clock
and we can watch mankind fall

„Methedrine Caroline“
she was once a love of mine
she was kind of borderline
but love can make you oh so blind
struck by love
paralyzed,
i thought bout her all the time
Caroline, Caroline
would you be my valentine ?

CHORUS:
but suddenly
there was a robbery
she took everything from me she could steal

but honestly
she coulda had it all for free
oh what she’d done to me
a robbery
and now she(’s) gone

Anna-Belle
straight from hell
oh, she was a pretty girl
had a smile that rang my bell
the cutest, rudest drugs to sell
kissing at the wishing well
the best thing in the whole wide world
tell me little Anna-Belle:
„what happened to us all the way?“

suddenly
there was a robbery
she took everything from me she could steal

but honestly
i could hat it all for free
oh what she’d done to me
a robbery
and now she(’s) gone

Penny-Jane
was a saint
she was running ‚round my brain
probably she wasn’t sane
but that wasn’t interesting
i loved that girl like no other before
so i knew what i had to do

suddenly
there was a robbery
I took everything from her I could steal

but honestly
I coulda had it all for free
oh what I’ve done to her
a robbery
and now I’m gone

Watch me leave!

don’t say no
just do the skeleton and
dance till we’re sore
with the skeleton
and even your pa‘
does the skeleton
if the bones don’t rattle
you’re doin‘ it wrong

Lisa-Marie
she was 25
left her hometown
barely alive
she met Ted the plumber
that summer
and he told her how to dance
the Skeleton Jive

and if the bones don’t rattle
you’re doin‘ it wrong

we do the Skeleton
Skeleton
all night long!

don’t you stop
just do the skeleton
quit your job
just do the skeleton
you will love
the skeleton
if the bones don’t rattle
you’re doin‘ it wrong

Timmy Quince
he’s so shy
in Junior High
lonely days go by
but that night
he asked Peggy Sue
„you wanna do the skeleton jive?“
„Yes I do!“

and if the bones don’t rattle
you’re doin‘ it wrong

we do the Skeleton
Skeleton
all night long!

Before you leave
take this body
as a gift
i won’t use it

And if you stay
you’ve got to be aware
I can’t be repaired
but I’ll try do better

I feel now is the time
I see the saints marching in
I hear the beat of a drum
when did the dyin‘ begin?

But if you still love me
without any doubt
now is the time
spit it out

I wish you the best
I wish i could last
a little bit longer
I swear I’m tryin‘

And it’s ok if you fade away
you deserve better
you’re all that matters
in the end

Before i leave
I’ll let you know:
I’ll take the burden
that you’ll be hurting

I feel now is the time
I see the saints marching in
I hear the beat of a drum
when did the dyin‘ begin?

But if you still love me
without any doubt
now is the time
spit it out

there was a wound
I used to tease
there was a truth
that preferred me on my knees

let’s have a drink
become extinct
last night they found his front teeth deep inside the sink

one peculiar morning
he got older
than he could shoulder

let’s start the overfeeding
give me all you’ve got
way more than I’m needing
my love
give me one last bite
before we burst
let’s go!

shake up the beast
kill your make-up for me
hoist up your necktie and breathe
everything that you once despised
wants to give you some good advice, like

one peculiar morning
he got older
than he could shoulder

let’s start the overfeeding
give me all you’ve got
way more than I’m needing
my love
give me one last bite
before we burst
let’s go!

man was made
man was made to fail
like the storm was made
storm was made to rage
don’t forget to breathe
in the presence of beauty

lost a million miles
a prophecy of lies
meet you right on the edge
pretending we could fly

I send a toast out to to those we lost
to the void

chain me to the clock
‚cos I’m running out of time
take my body to the ocean
fill me up with morning- light
i need simple answer
to a question i can’t hide
its engraved on my face
but got buried by a smile

and I’d rather be confused
‚cos confusion ain’t no lie
i’m trippin‘, stumblin’, mumblin‘, weepin‘
waiting for a reply
i need no reason for bleeding
but thanks for the advice
till the devil names the price
i’ve got my system of decline

I send a toast out to to those we lost
to the void

Barefooted dancing lady
shakin‘ feathers like a hen
I really could get a li’l more drunk
but I prefer the state I’m in
I got so sick of these excuses
can’t hide the melody
that’s dripping from my tongue
while you remind me of the former me

love in all forms & figures
sweet love pushin‘ fingers at my triggers
Now I only ache twice a day
I knew it when I heard you say:
„ain’t too done to die young“

I hear you tappin‘
the bubble is bursting
lips doin‘ their job
and they keep getting thirsty
and everything’s good just as long as we’re blooming
I want you to share your loneliest moment with love in all
forms & figures
sweet love pushin‘ fingers at my triggers
Now I
only ache twice a day
I knew it when heard you say:
„ain’t too done to die young“

love in all forms & figures
sweet love pushin‘ fingers at my triggers
Now I only ache twice a day
I knew it when I heard you say:
„ain’t too done to die young“

i need some cheap wine
to kill some time
some cheaper girls
in the meanwhile

pass away
just a little while
the master says:
„i need no reason why“

i’m just looking for a weak god
who could take me for what i am
don’t tell me what i need not
maybe someday i will be back again

with my
weak god
papa i know
it might sound strange
but i’ve got some wounds to rearrange
tell me i’m good
tell me i’m enough
tell me you’re in love
with my weak god

i’m a little bit cleaner
than i was
the day before
and the day before that
every time i fall asleep
i dream of you
that’s why I camouflage myself
with that cheap perfume

7 a.m.
socks in the fridge
zombies in the bathtub
looking for a hit
so hard to remember with a hole in your head
it’s the wake-up call
did you miss the wake-up call

burned-out candles in the „bottle-shrine“
shut down all the windows
too much sun to shine
the smell of rotting roses is on my mind
it’s the wake-up call

tear-stained letter
on the floor
too much ego to ignore
raise my hell
or praise the lord
it’s the wake-up call
did you miss the wake-up call

and it’s only time to lose

cigarette stuck
in her neck
plastic flamingos in the sand
the world is torn
the fish is dead
it’s the wake-up call
did you miss the wake-up call

i’ve got my lyrics
i wear my scars
i’m blaming
700 bartenders
in a hundred bars
i nail my shadow
across the wall
it’s the wake-up call
did you miss the wake up call

and it’s only time to lose

sixteen years in the belly of a whale
done built me a shrine of fins
i’ve got a little house
right beside the liver
made by bones and bowels

the whale died many years ago
100 miles down in the sea
now i’m caged inside this sleepy giant
and no one hears my scream

welcome to the final chapter!
sit down and we can rot together!

spent my life in this shipwreck
and i never ever spoke a word
sometimes i hear the sirens sing
but i don’t dare to scream for help

maybe i was made for this
how else could I stand this hell
i gotta make the best out of it
down in the belly of the whale

welcome to the final chapter!
sit down and we can rot together!

Sally Mae told Bobby Joe
meet me after school
at the record store
don’t bring nobody else around
i’ve got something , i need to tell you about

the oldest feeling

Rosaly,
she was eighty-nine
one year earlier
her Frankie died
now she’s starin at the moon
whispering „Frankie imma follow you“

for the oldest feeling

i’ve met you at a city dance
you looked young and you felt the same
you’re the moment I’ve been searching for
so let me tell you all about

the oldest feeling

they call me Betty
but my name is Lou-Anne
this is my story
don’t know where to begin
i’ve been withering on this stage since i don’t know when
lips as red as lobsters in a frying-pan

but don’t ask me how the weather was
‚cos i might not know
don’t ask me if i crave for too much
while I’m starving at a sold-out show

behind the curtain
just a planet away
this is where i live, where they’re fixing my grave
the dagger in my heart
i hear my mama say:
„babe you can’t be free as long as you’re safe“

so bring your worries and your sad lives, too
i‘ll tell you stories and a little bit of truth
i gave my youth and my madness and myself to you
watch me decompose ‚cos i do it for you

gotta find me peace of mind
diseases and reasons i’ve left behind
come on sun don’t you dare to shine
your bony hand it was made for mine

let’s shrink down to the bottom of the pit
i believed in it
when i said i adore most of the things
you love me to do, when i do what i can
to lose what i am

the void is calling
the dance is slack
one more day
and I won’t be back

i“ll never forget what grandpa‘ said:
i’ll reincarnate as a cadillac

take me to the Well
give me my concrete shoes
take me to the Well
i gon‘ testify for you

drowning men
came to stay
we’re still alive
we just decay

and if you still got some more soul to sell
come on, save your tears for the well

the world weighs heavy
the crown is cracked
the knife fits perfectly with the back
come on mama let us „chain-react“
the heart has to wither so the love could last

let’s shrink down to the bottom of the pit
i believed in it
when i said i adore the most of the things
you love me to do, when i do what i can
to loose what i am

Sally Kruger was the cream of the crop
she had curly blonde hair
every school boy fell in love with her

and Barry Hicks
was a boy with hands as big as pancakes

he fell in love
the moment she raised up her eyelid
he asked her if she wanna take a ride with him
it was fall
and the leaves began to leave
when the church bells rang on sunday
sally hung down from a tree

tell me who took
tell me who took
tell me who took sally the prom night

Sheriff Walter Brown
was staring at his boots
he never saw a murder
as bloody as this one was

he was talking to Barry
but he refused to speak
he bit off his tongue
and fell down on his knees

it was a friday night
the town was getting nervous
Mr. Kruger was working and
he’d been drinking since his thirties

the rifle full of bullets
and the body full of wine
he shot down Barry Hicks
as fast as teardrops leave the eye

tell me who took
tell me who took
tell me who took sally the prom night

most of the people think
this is where the story ends
but when barry hicks looked up
and saw the rifle in Pa‘ Kruger’s hands

Barry couldn’t breathe
‚cos before he kept on dying
he saw in the eyes of the man
who took Sally’s life

and he could read her scars
like a postcard
and she never looked that alive
a night before
with an knife sticking out of her skull

every rose
has to fade
watch me go
i’m head of the parade

and every leaf
is gonna leave
a ghost is living
in my memories

i‘ll take my booze
and my walking stick
i count to ten
yeah, I won’t be back

oh lonely world
just a raging mind
i try to carry on
these miles of mine

and I only believe
in the weakness of the heart
in the silence of a grave
in the whisper in the dark

and I only believe
in the marching of the drum
in the love of a life
in the patience of the numb

i‘ll find a place
where i could rest
somewhere safe
i can forget

there’s a healing going on
but I can’t tell you where it belongs

and I only believe
in the weakness of the heart
in the silence of a grave
in the whisper in the dark

and I only believe
in the marching of the drum
in the love of a life
in the patience of the numb

every day i try
still I’m wondering why
i can’t
i cant make it over that mountain

every word i speak
tells me how absurd it is
but i can’t
can’t make it over that mountain

what you gonna do when the angels
turn their backs on you
and you feel like
you’re stranded in a heart you can’t sell!
just another lonely tale

tell me who you are
how you feel
where you come from, what you want?
it don’t mean nothing
nothing
by the end of this song

every single truth
is another jigsaw of a lie you feed your soul
there’s no path, there’s no religion, there’s
no rock that’s left to roll

don’t blame me for the scars you
wear like diamonds on your skin
don’t tell me that you are
what i never dared to be

love itself
is a multiplier
that sets your poor heart on fire
there’s no question left to ask
you look beautiful behind your mask

i testify
i testify
that nothing in this world is free
you can’t deny
it’s not much time
but you can have the rest of me

and i don’t need no grammar
i despise these words
i throw kisses on the trigger
till the trigger does its work

and i’m hungry for a memory
i’m not telling you to stop
i’m the only excuse that i’ve got

its just a lack of information
that made this love so true
you need the patience of a patient
while I finish my song for you

it’s been five
long days of dyin‘
since my baby shot me in the back

now you won’t
keep from crying
when you get these postcards from my death bed

i am standing
at the crossroads
in the shade of an old dead tree
i am longing
for salvation
one day i goon‘ be free

raise up your glass
scream halleluja
wake me up
if i stop to rot

i’m still starving
i can feel it
but one day i’ll be free from the world

hear them vultures
they keep whistling
while they rattle with their chains

there’s a hole
inside this breast
there’s no poison left to test
come on darling
let’s fade together

love
at all costs
do you really know what you are dyin‘ of?

we
can get lost
all you gonna need is trust!

and don’t you know
that nothing really matters from now on?

just take my hand
and together we try try try

a different state of mind

i can feel it in my bones
my empire falls

and everything i was sure about
makes me feel so confused about it now

i count them one by one
the saints go marching in
well, the future’s gone
the past stumbles in

i feel
like a hole in the wall
i steal
my name from your door
you’re here
but but i need you far away
it’s a private pain

who
gonna tie the noose?
who
gonna lie for you?
and who
gonna wear your shoes
when you’re six feet under the ground

well, i wish i could wipe
all my troubles away
and i wish i could find me
a brand new yesterday

promise me you wake me up
when i’m sleeping in my grave
there is no more tears
no more second left to waste

i can’t stand the chatter
all that knocking at my door
too many wounds
not able to ignore

welcome to the point
where the drama begins
down in the gullet of the truth
in a ten foot cell
don’t ever try to stop the rot
i do what i can
to ache a bit, break a bit
i waste what i am

i try to tame tomorrow
i try to hide the beast
i cut myself in pieces
so you can love much more of me

All your laughter
reminds me of the tears
your cloudy eyes at 6 o clock
situation’s gettin‘ weird

your lips keep movin‘
but you ain’t gon‘ say a word

I’ll meet you at the bottom of this world
and i gon‘ sing for you.

hear the voices
they are talkin‘ french
what did you expect, girl?
i’ve never been a simple man

another lonely body
a night flyin‘ bird
I’ll meet you at the bottom of this world
and i gon‘ sing for you.

have no need for the answer
no use for the truth
rest my soul in arms
just like you did, too

forever broken
forever hurt
I’ll meet you at the bottom of this world
and i gon‘ sing for you….

Some men
try to follow
and some men
stand in line
i try to drink myself trough the day
it helps to keep from cryIn‘

the old man is dripping down the table
„Its the last one boys“
he’s sayin‘
you know that Cain slew abel
here comes another same old story again

mama mama gimme shelter
just a little sip of your love
and hear that storm over yonder
hinkin‘ my way back to god

just like a Three legged Dog!

early early this morning
a nail hammered through the door
babe, i didn’t get the warning
you won’t be hangin‘ here no more

all my baby’s left me
is her lipstick on side of my brim
i try to drink myself under the table
livin‘ in that bottle of gin

mama mama gimme shelter
just a little sip of your love
and hear that storm over yonder
hinkin‘ my way back to god

just like a Three legged Dog!

There is thunder in the alley
and the leaves refuse to die
i never knew how to laugh, babe
since the day i saw you smile

you said you never liked the winter
but you’d love to share a beer
i like to lay right here beside you
while i endow you with all my years

and i keep on waitin‘
while the sun crawled up the hill
i got tired of foolin‘ myself
but i’m sure i will

you send out those vibrations like the strings on a guitar
stuck in this dead end you’re my getaway car
constantly moving but still standing there
chained to this mad world like an Old Rockin‘ Chair

i know my haircut’s a disaster
let’s put on our fancy shoes
i wanna drown in your laughter
and change my ways for you

i like the way you do your make up
how you begin your days
i never knew how to dance, babe
till the band refused to play

If i go back to heaven
my mailbox will be full
Saint Paul is on vacation
the devil’s on the loose
and i say
hey i got religion
hear the work-bell ring
evil crossed the border
while god is out of order

Hey! Hey! Judgement Day!
Let me welcome you to Judgement Day!

Puttin‘ on my grandpa’s shoes
he wore the day he died
he was fumbling with the noose
a glimmer in his eyes

lord, lord have mercy
my body is caged
evil crossed the border
while god is out of order

Don’t say nothing at all!

she’s got a heart full of thunder
and a body like a toothpick
the jukebox’s obsessed with Stevie Wonder
and her limits are useless

she’s dancin‘ like a raindrop
and some say „she’s too old to die“…poor mary

she thinks that:
„god is on permanent vacation“

tap-dancin‘ in a bubble
romances in the bottle

she knows the words to destroy you
you need a friend, go get a lawyer
a screaming letter in the mailbox
for you i wanna be a better beast

but that’s my fate
always one kiss too late!


i wish this cigarette could last forever

i cross my heart
i spit pictures on the wall
wrap myself into your wig
and tap-dance down the hall
i know my hearts kinda incomplete
and i take you with me when i go

don’t say nothing at all

i jump outside your letter
get me a taxi to the trash
the world is sick of spinning
when broken dames begin to laugh

i hear a billion voices
they’re roarin‘ in my head
and i don’t get it

but that’s my fate
always one kiss too late!

Still doin‘ my circles
every day 9 to 5
tell me who deserves it
to believe these lies ?

my head’s in the cellar
my feet in the clouds
things are getting mellow
while the sky crushes down

no man’s able to stand a Good World
no man survives this life
sing it one more time!
just let it go!
and if i deserve it
i’m gonna let you know

that’s my confession
i’m gonna write it in my bones
and it’s a Good World
and i don’t wanna go

down in the darkness
i hear your breath
don’t you dare to make a fool out of me
i’ve already done my best

let me tell you that i care ‚bout you
they say it’s all about love
but if i’m wrong let me know, girl
i’ll find a better position on the cross

still doin‘ my circles
don’t be afraid
the day will end
maybe that’s ok

i feel it in my belly
can you feel it, too
no man can stand it
what this Good World can do to you

We chose the road
less traveled by
don’t ask me why
i’d have to lie

you wear these tears
so full of pride
all these years
we had to hide

but now i’m standin‘ here confessin‘
this world looks so much better with you in it babe

You ain’t nothing but a Compliment!
You ain’t nothing but a Compliment!
You ain’t nothing but a Compliment!
to all i am
here you’ve got me singin‘ it again!

i’ve got time
and you’ve got wine
i guess it’s kind of beautiful mixture babe

close these eyes
it’s alright
let’s get rid of these shadows
for a little while
today i woke up in a dream
i dare to sacrifice
these lovely lies of mine

Motorcycle Jonny
had to two kids and a wife
he’s working in a coal-mine
7 to 5

gamblin‘ at night
goin‘ downtown
with a head full of bourbon
at the „boogalow-barn“

he’s got
black eyes
black hands
black is his body
down in the dirt
pickin‘ up his shovel
let’s go!

oh baby
let’s go low low!!!

300 feet
under the ground
this is where Jonnys poor body was found

he got low!
oh
he got low

and with his last bit of breath
he scratched some words in his back
and this is what Jonny the pitman said

he said:
Don’t Don’t Don’t Don’t
Go Back To The Coal Mine!

Never ever ever go back
inside the shaft!!!

his kids and wife
started to cry
when the other miner carried the sack

Jonny was inside
his kids and wife
realized that Jonny was dead

his body got smashed
his eyeballs got cracked
he’s never coming back again

My baby’s got a heart
as big as a wheel
she shot me in the morning
but i guess i love her still

i’m looking for salvation
the drama looks new
come on let’s get buried
in this coffin for two

the moon up in the heavens
wears a diabolic smile
my baby’s got a heart-attack
he loves to feel alive

we’re headin‘ for the highway
the mirror don’t like me
come on let’s get buried in this Coffin for Two!

Heyyyy !
I want trouble
no one leaves this room
till we finished that bottle
Heeey!
we need action
buried in this Coffin for Two!

i don’t care ‚bout what the weather-men say
‚cos it has been rainin‘
all of my days
all you need is patience
every lie becomes the truth
come on let’s get buried in this Coffin for Two

put on your dress
i never liked the barber
countin‘ every minute
while i’m stuck in this cadaver
be my cinderella
step inside the shoe
Come on let’s get buried in this Coffin for Two

don’t speak
don’t breath
take place
right there on your knees

and have a little mercy
the drama looks new
Come on let’s get buried
Come on let’s get buried
Come on let’s get buried in this Coffin for Two!

A little pain
won’t hurt you
a little rain
will show you what you’ve got

a little pain won’t hurt you
a little pain will wake you up

big old sky
runs out of blue sometimes
you get nervous
and lose a little time
these old love letters
ain’t gettin‘ better
in a while

you feel like leavin‘
at the crack of dawn
you take your dusty boots
and sneak out of the living room
new years‘ in sweden
can’t get you what you’re needin‘
the wound is sick of bleedin‘
but…

the waiter
wears a silly tie
the piano roars „as time goes by“
the same old chords
combined
with a new fine bottle of wine

the dames are meltin‘
in the midday heat
i pawned my champagne glass
to the sea
when the teardrops fall
you’ll be all by yourself

countin‘ all these
lowdown years
causes nothing
but burned out tears
so i will do my best
and remember
to forget

You’ve got your
and i’ve got my
very own way
of decline

guess someday
it’ll be soon
i burn this whole town down
and slip back in mama’s womb

Poor mary’s too old
Poor mary’s too old
too old to die!

let me inhale
your lies like smoke
it feels so good
to die that slow

collectin‘ kisses
like you always do
the only lie I told
is to be true

Poor mary’s too old
Poor mary’s too old
too old to die

meet me down
at the tracks
with a kitchen-knife
in my back
i burned your pillow
i love these flames


poor mary’s too old
poor mary’s too old
too old to die

You’ve got me
sliding‘ down to Montreux
in a  pick-up full of guns
you said you meet me at the old church
sipping‘ on a bottle of scotch

you’ve  got me shaken‘ like a flag on a pole
and i’m a good boy except for drinking alcohol
„my my my“
the old lady said
I realized she was a hooker
when i woke up in her bed

Oh Happy Worst Day!
Another sip of Blues around!

Down at the village
had a table for two
me and my big fat mama
and her tiny broken voice

she whispered mean things
i didn’t get
I released that she was evil
when she took my cigarettes

so we moved back to chinatown
there ain’t nothing wrong with
somebody who’s drinking and drowning

put on your sunday best
and we gonna sink
if the bar-man is the only
who would offer you a drink

She don’t like the way i’m shakin‘
so please fill up my glass
i’ve never found religion
and I don’t believe in jazz

i feel so rock’n’roll now
and i still refuse to fade
i never dared to be a sinner
since the age that I was twelve

JACKLEEN!
Don’t you dare to wake me from this dream!

16 grey apostles
and everyone is blind
they order dry martinis
and buckets full of vine

she’s standing in the corner
and all she gonna need
is a hangman and butcher
at the bottom of her feet

JACKLEEN!
Don’t you dare to wake me from this dream!

tell the moon it’s time to go
tell the stars to fade
there is still love inside my toes
and mistakes left to make

i wanna get Rid of it
but i don’t know how
i wanna get rif of it!
this ghost
that i’ve been singing about
so full of doubt my love

tell the wound its‘ time to heal
tell the tiller-man my tale
give me love you wont give to yourself
there’s still air left to inhale

i wanna get Rid of it
but i don’t know how
i wanna get rif of it!
this ghost
that i’ve been singing about
so full of doubt my love

tell the king i’m broke as him
tell the minute to linger
while i balance a spoonful of world
on the edge of my finger#

i wanna get Rid of it
but i don’t know how
i wanna get rif of it!
this ghost
that i’ve been singing about
so full of doubt my love

Woke up next to a bloody axe
shivers over my cold skin
she said i love your sweet dilemma
i said i love your incompletion

i told her
don’t let us waste some time
let’s get married right away
so i got myself a silver spade
and opened up her grave

we were dancing
in the pale moonlight
i wore my favorite tie
and somewhere in the distant night
i heard a lonely siren cry

i wish i had
a cigarette
i would cover us with gas
come a little closer
let’s suffocate on this kiss
