Track Name: Surfer
Surfer
------

the heart behind the cock
the Roman nose
the face behind the love
we know what we feel
it´s an ancient urge
the joy inside the girl
it´s like we´re exploding
the petal is closing
the body and the pearl
the body and the pearl
the surfer´s in the curl
the colors in the swirl
my voice is on the phone
the heart behind the drone
the gold is in the blood
our head is in the drug
I´m a burnout, you´re a rain cloud
you´re a rain cloud
I´m a burnout, you´re a rain cloud
you´re a rain cloud
we are self aware
and this is our reward
I’ve got a flower on my sword
it gives my life meaning
I´m dreaming of the place beyond the door
the place beyond the door
the grace behind the form
a sigh and then a storm
Track Name: Thugs
Thugs
-------------

it would be awesome
to be inside the front yard
with the same voice
and the fake smile
the gun shots, the house fire

I am one of seven billion thugs
and housewives, and horseflies

we act like them
to fit in, and then
we are them
in the old cars
and the drunk nights
the big dreams
the fist fights
Track Name: We need you
We need you
-----------

when the powerful hoofs
of the riot horse break
the place in your chest
that covers your heart
fire at them, men
with all of your might
just be sure that you don´t
recede into dark

in the dream of the lamb
there´s a hint of a wolf
and a cloud in the shape of a rifle
every droplet of rain
is a tracking device
every orange on the tree is an apple

there´s a voice in our head that cannot be controlled
and a cop in the streets
with a hammer
bury your thoughts under mountains of code
and bow at the feet of the camera

when the sun hits the roof
and the fly rests its wings
and the blood hits the back of your shoulder
better sink like a man
to the end of the blade
soon you will return as a spider

that is not our lord
it´s a falling drone
Track Name: Smarter
Smarter
-----------

I want to take my waitress by the hand
and convince her she´s beautiful
like her I´m doing everything I can
so I don´t feel invisible

I´m just smart enough to survive
not one cell smarter

Adam took a lion by the horn
so he could feel powerful
but like every god in every mythic storm
it wasn´t believable

if I ever find myself a paying job
I´ll kneel down and pray to him
but like most of us I feel I´m being robbed
so until then I´m saving it

I´m just smart enough to survive
not one cell smarter
Track Name: Astrid
Astrid

yes, stepping off a train in Berlin
drinking champagne is a sin
over the applause and clatter
all of her movements matter
walking down the stairs in a shirt
making it work, stopping the clock

yes, every word forms a pattern
a goodbye kiss
her brown hair looks like a snake
her blonde hair looks like a cake
Astrid bathing in a lake
I would like my heart back

yes, every note is for Astrid
every song I ever did
I would like my heart back
I would like my heart back
I would like my heart back
Track Name: Empire of my hate
Empire of my hate
---------
replace the system with a murder and a scream
and lay your head against a never ending dream
I live in a world to which I mostly don´t relate
this is the entrance to the empire of my hate

empire of my hate
under your arches my soldier marches
to the empire of my hate

embrace a rifle and the loss of privacy
destroy the garden of your personality
I am like a rabbit on a long forgotten plate
this is the entrance to the empire of my hate
Track Name: New world lamb
New world lamb
------------

when it is over
a tired man rests
on any damn breast
and it is over

I´m like a dying star
I feel like hell
all my friends are doing well
they do not call me

there is a black flame
that burns in the heart
the butter and bread
is coming apart

when it is over
a tired man rests
on any damn breast
and it is over
and I am tired

in the new world
a butcher is king
he owns everything
this is the new world
Track Name: Touch is meat
Touch is meat
-------------

everything is industry
I don´t like the things I see
I see the thing, the stinking sea
everything is industry

this is how it feels to sleep
threaded like a button
all of us are in the street
everything we touch is meat

everything we touch is meat
caught fucking in the hallways
I think about it always
everything we touch is meat

everyone I know is a cheat
got brought up in the wrong way
I think about it always
everyone I know´s a cheat

I don´t care about people
I keep to myself now
I feel like an icicle
a psycho on a bicycle
Track Name: Curses!
Curses!
---------------

there was a flash in the sky
from a million universes
there go the lights, ring the bells
I do not know where the nurse is
down here there's noise, there are cars,
there is crime, there are curses
there was a flash in the sky
and then up came all the churches
there is a hole in my coat
where the stars and the earth is
I lost the keys to my boat,
my guitar, and my verses
down in the crowd there are girls,
there is fun, there are purses
there is a hole in my coat
and a coroner on every corner
a coroner on every corner
and a photograph of every foreigner
there will be a flash in the sky
then a black hole where the earth is
we become dust, and then stars
then we turn back into urchins
if you have time ring the bells,
cross your heart, close the curtains,
turn off the lights, say goodbye
there's a coroner on every corner
and a photograph of every foreigner
Track Name: Smile
Smile
----------

when I grow up I wanna be a waiter
waste my life behind a coffee maker
I see an apron in my future
when I grow up I wanna hide my failure
behind a smile
Track Name: My black prize
My black prize
-------

all eyes on my black prize
it’s wake then breath
and lunch then death
we go out and get wasted
somebody call me a cab
I wish I guess for peace and meth
over dinner
all eyes watch us
when it hunts it scores
when it skies it floors
when it rains it rains it rains
I crawl to the tips of your walls and your hips
with the swans and the tourists
all eyes on my black prize
somebody call us a cab
it’s love I guess
for peace and meth
over dinner
all eyes watch us
all of our friends
want to be near us
Track Name: Manic high
Manic high
-------

it´s a killing spree
there´s a bead on me
that blows me into the vapor
I´m a falling tree
sliding off of the paper

on a sloping hill
there´s a sleeping pill
and blankets over the windows
I have seen enough
my destiny is the pillow

it´s a fall

on a manic high
I´m a dragonfly
diving off of a building
on a manic high
I cannot control
what I´m feeling
it´s a fall
Track Name: Lemon seed
Lemon seed
-----------

the lemon seed
my girl and me
her leg inspires
the wolves, the choirs
the falling sun
the fallen one
the party´s ending
the body´s bending
the door is closed
the sun has holes
the end is coming
the cum is ending

they kneel to pray
she looked away
a man surrenders
to bars and benders
a ringing bell
we´re high as hell
the tower´s creaking
the water’s leaking
first I´m conscious
then I´m unconscious
then I´m conscious
then I´m unconscious

increase your wealth
but lose yourself
a fool acquires
the cars, the tires
the lemon seed
my girl and me
her leg inspires
the wolves, the choirs
the door slams closed
we are exposed
the end is coming
the cum is ending
