Track Name: Be a Bad Son
You got
You got to find another hideout
You gotta bleed a little bit, child
Like a dog in a wolfpack zone

It´s a cruel world
You got to fight to feel welcome
You need to write on your own tombstone (ou ‘Come on, write your tombstone’)
And be a real bad-bad son

Be a Bad Son

Your god
Your god is sleeping in a hot tub
Is cheating your momma on a nightclub
He’s a flop - Don’t you know, dear?

Try now
You got to find another hideout
You got to stay awake all night
And be a real bad-bad son

Be a Bad Son
Track Name: Candy Shop Fire
Don’t you realize
She’s working to keep you alive

Yes I can’t complain
She’s bringing my home back again

Grow-up, man-child
You’re lost in… in a candy shop fire

I never thought about it before
I was wrong
I was blind for sure

Wake-up
She’s getting tired
Don’t you see her frozen smile

Goddamn, you’re right
I should have read all these signs

Don’t you realize
She’s working to keep you alive

Yes I can’t complain
She’s bringing my home back again
Track Name: She’s Leaving Town
She is leaving town (3x)
She is leaving town
In a winter grey and blue
She is leaving town
With her suitcase and her hopes packed for you
She is leaving town and her teardrop
Is now frozen and…
Lost in the woods

All you fake people don't matter to me anymore
All you fake people can't steal away my soul
Here she goes now
Ring the bells loud
Track Name: Traveling Man
Your strange eyes
All your fears behind
You’re never relaxed, never controlled
You’re just leaving

All your strange words
You’re afraid of folks
You’re never relaxed
Don’t want to be found
You’re just leaving

Just a sad traveling man
Tell me where you think you’ll get
Trying to be free

Strange times
When you hear the signs
You’ re never relaxed
You’re never controlled
You’re just leaving

Around the world
You just got to run
You’re never relaxed,
Cause nobody told you,
You just need me

Just a sad traveling man
Tell me where you think you’ll get
Trying to be free
Track Name: Unkind
You’re so unkind
Never treat me right
Some things must die
But maybe love will come to shine
When you say love is blind
I wonder if you’re ever gonna
Take me
Along
Let me
Be yours
Take me
With you
Allow me to enter into your world
Will you be
With me
Will you
Need me
In this game I always say something wrong

I think you lied
Always treat me so cruel
Can’t love be shared?
Simple plans
For just one truth

Will you hate me when you realize
I’m just like this I have no disguise

Will you
Leave me
Alone
With no words
Disappear and
Never let me be your helpless love
Could you
Turn on
Your heart
Be strong
This time
I know you always treated me like a stupid poet
Track Name: Are You Mad at Me?
I have been thinking a lot in daytime
Ain’t a good way to see it…
All the daily fights and scandals
It’s just the ashes of my dreams

Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?

Now I’m trying to be stable
But we shared a sinking lifeboat
I think it’s time for you to go free
When you think about happy endings
Better stop, dear, and look around

Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?

Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?
Are you mad at me?

Da da dan dan dan
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Track Name: I Walk Alone
The streets are on fire
As I walk alone
All that I had now is gone
You keep hanging around
Kicking my bones
I feel like a stranger in my home

I walk alone

You treat me unkind
You’re always doin’ wrong

The streets are burning
As I walk alone
Got smoke in my eyes
And coal in my lungs
You keep hanging around
Dropping bombs
But I…
Can do it on my own
All my life I’ve slept on a bed of stones
We know
This is taking too long

The streets are burning
As I walk alone
All that I had now is gone…
Track Name: Red Alert
Guess what
I just don’t need you
Forget about me somehow
Just leave me in peace now
I’m warning you, don’t be near

I tell you
A little secret I’ve lived with
I never wanted you
And right now I ‘m just burning
Like a flag on fire
And I’m done with the nightshift
You better beware of me now
Oh I can hurt you

I’ll neutralize the pain
In a way you can’t feel it
I’ll try to explain the best way
I can do it
You can smile and ignore my reflections
And try to resist and insist on this nightmare
oh you can blame me
And hate me
And hate me
But why don’t you think about the horror we’ve been in
And the risk to pretend
we can stand
Why don’t you leave me
Track Name: Take Me Back To Planet Earth
It’s bleeding, baby
And it looks pretty bad
I’m a rat man moaning in a dying bed
Bring me the doctor
Bring me the pills
Stop this fever
Stop these chills

Take back me to planet earth
I wanna know
I wanna know all about it
Take me back, baby
I wanna know
I wanna know what it’s like

Tell me the truth before dawn
There’s a blackhole, baby
Right in your eyes
I cannot deal with that
Kick me off
Kill me fast

Take me back to planet earth
I wanna know
I wanna know all about it
Take me back, baby
I wanna know
I wanna know what it’s like
Track Name: Dumbo
Don’t you know
You’re a stranger in this town
Don’t you know (don’t you know)
You’re a stranger in this town
(in this town)

On the stage
When you’re shining
You can hear the claps and shouts
But don’t you know (don’t you know)
They see you as a clown

Don’t you know
You’re a stranger in this town
Don’t you know (don’t you know)
You’re a stranger in this town
(in this town)

You’re far away
From your homeland
And mama’s not around
No place to fall
No money or honey
To make her proud

Don’t you know
You’re a stranger in this town
Don’t you know (don’t you know)
You’re a stranger in this town
(in this town)
Track Name: Work
Days, working all day
Always, always, working all day

It takes me too long
(a long, long time my love)
It takes me too long
(a long, long time my love)

Days, working all day
Always, always, working all day

Don’t get me wrong
(I spent too much time on it)
Don’t get me wrong
(I waste too much life on it)

I’ve been alone, doing my duties
Thinking alone, why do I do this
Why do I have to wait so long
Until you, will you?
