Track Name: Little paranoia
Little Paranoia

1. And there are people, i see every day
And there are people, I talk to every day
They seem to like me
I seem to like them
Sometimes I’m not sure about it

Then a little paranoia goes through my head
Then a little paranoia goes through my head

2. And when I tell these people
That I am not so sure about our friendships
They also show their insecurities (we all have paranoia)

Then a little paranoia goes through our heads
Then a little paranoia goes through our heads

3. And there are people, i see every day
And there are people, I talk to every day
They seem to like me
I seem to like them
Sometimes I’m not sure about it
Track Name: Internet Gangster
Internet Gangster

Ref.: internet gangster transparent like an open Chord
he might be clever maybe dyslexic
he might wear an ugly old wig
he isn't really organic
he is only super-mechanic
he makes up names for his identity
he will always be a stranger to me
he infects you wth some viral disease
he is just an electronic tease
he wants the number of your credit card
before he steals your internet heart
Track Name: Let's do it all again
People come and go
People say hello
And i’m wondering
Who will stay until the end
People lose their face
People shave their face
And i’m wondering
Who will shave until the end
Track Name: White Wall
You cut every house
Every room is isolation

You’re both figure and ground
Everything is on you and you are on everything

You’re a western phenomenen
White wall paper white wall paper white

You’re an inspiration
for all those graffiti artists

You always listen
Even when I stop talking

I think I like you
‘cause I cannot explain why I like you

my white wall, my white wall, white wall

a little melody for this white wall symphony
just to waste some time
Track Name: Tear Shirt
time passes by and i'm not getting older
as long as i stay in my room
i keep my age of 25

i said 'good night'
took my scarf and coat
and walked home
after a fight, i prefer to stay alone


Ref: But my t-shirt was only a wet tearshirt,
and my t-shirt was only a wet tearshirt

i said 'goodbye, it is better when we don’t keep in touch
you started to cry and I tried hard to keep my eyes dry

Ref: and my t-shirt was only a wet tearshirt x2

time passes by and i'm not getting older and
i'm wondering if it's still the same with you
do you still cry when it gets a little
colder?

Ref: and my t-shirt was only a wet tearshirt x2
Track Name: Anything (friends on a ship)
I don’t have anything in common with my friends
They just slipped into my life x2

I’m a diving bird a flying fish

I don’t have anything in common with you
You just slipped into my life x2

I’m a dirty word and dirty dish

Ref: Friends on a ship x4


I don’t have anything in common
With myself i just slipped into my life x2
I’m a diving bird a flying fish

Friends on a ship x4
Track Name: Blind Date
I put a contact-ad in the local magazine
I felt so band almost escaped in my vocal limousine
And I received some letters of some men in their thirties and fourties
And I’m only 25, but I think I’m really tolerant towards people in the thirties
And people in the fourties and to those who were born in the seventies.

And I replied with a letter to a letter that I liked
Of a guy who didn’t seem to have a telephone-number.
I’m not really into phone-calls, but three days later he really called,
And we exchanged some words and we organized a so called, a so called

Ref:
blind date – three hours
Talking of nervous nothing
Blind date Three hours
Talking ‘bout nervous nothing

He had a coffee and about thirteen cigarettes
I had one coffee
And a sparkling water with lemon
And we were talking
And I was talking and I was talking
And I was walking
Quickly away afterwards.

Refrain again!!

And while we were sitting at this table in that café
I couldn’t forget about that imaginery shield above our table
what said: this is a blind date;
these two awesome people meet for a blind date,
an embarrassing blind date,
an unromantic blind date
oh my goodness,, those two people, they are so lonesome,
‘cause this is a blind date!!
Track Name: Mystery of Love
My best friend
Told me ‘bout her boyfriend
And I’m wondering why they’re still together
‘cause he treats her like a piece of pizza
and I’m wondering why they’re still together

REF:
that’s the mystery of love
nothing can be said with certainty
it’s the mystery of love
explanations fail in mystery

my neighbour tells me ‘bout his girlfriend
and I’m wondering why they’re still together
‘cause she has a second second boyfriend
and I’m wondering why they’re still together

and when I’m talking to my boyfriend
I might wonder why we’re still together
‘cause we don’t talk too much
and I might wonder why we’re still together
Track Name: Science is over
Ref: :Science is over
I’ll join scientology:

Your last exam is like
A flight to Las Vegas
Homesickness just
Makes me travel
Like a rebel

Ref:
:Science is over
I’ll join scientology:

They like you disorders
So don’t mind the borders
Keep gazing your shoes
And dance the blues
Track Name: Crocodile
And i’m asking you
Almost three times a day
If you still love me
Is that okay?

And you try hard
to make me believe
you say yes, of course
and make me a tea

and if I had to compare
you with an animal
you would surely be
some reptile

so calm and clever
both slow and quick
you would surely be
a crocodile

Refrain:
I would like to have your teeth and your patience
Like a crocodile
I would like to have your thick crunchy skin
Like a crocodile
I would like to have your sense of logic
You’re my crocodile

the city is tiring
a jungle for kids
but we will get older
and so do my tits

I like it when you
Cook me guinea pigs
With a bowel of rice
And fresh picked figs

Your jaws always open
They pretend to be shut
By a set of muscles
hide in tropical mud

Refrain:
I would like to have your teeth and your patience
Like a crocodile
I would like to have your thick crunchy skin
Like a crocodile
I would like to have your sense of logic
You’re my crocodile
I would like to lead the life of a reptile
Of a crocodile
Track Name: Happy
life just hurts
even when I’m happy
you don’t know anything about me

life just hurts even when I’m with you
you you don’t nothing at all

life just hurts even whe I’m sleeping
I don’t sleep at all

Ref: Happy and I can’t believe that I’m happy
And keep this state for seven days now, happy

Life just hurts, even when I’m smiling/laughing
Jokes are, jokes just just are

Life just hurts, especially when I’m with
You just need my smile

Ref: Happy and I can’t believe that I’m happy and I keep this state for seven days now
Whooo happy..
Track Name: Lullaby for Punks
Lullaby for Punks
even the punks, they need to sleep
even the punks, they sometimes weep
even the punks stop drinking
their cheap beer
to take a little nap
even the punks fall in love
even the punks want to get married
even the punks dream of babies
to roll them 'round in prams and green parks
good night, punks!!
