Track Name: Dig My Body A Hole
Got a teenage burst
Sundays I’m depressed
Press my bruises hard
But I hide it

You have a secret gun
Sensing when I’m gone
You throw a tricky bait
And I bite it

You have a secret gun
And you can screw my mind
You have a secret gun
You have a secret gun

Bullet hits me hard
Keeps me warm inside
Dig my body a hole
And just hide it

And I became a scum
So you can’t break my heart
Just to fix myself
I hurt others

You have a secret gun
You made me who I am
You have a secret gun
You have a secret gun
Track Name: Palazzo
Heartless shows, in silent places.
Spinning heads, magic tricks and races.

I’m wiping her tears,
With comfort and lies,
Her make-up disappears.
She stabbed me in the chest,
Her eyes turning all red,
“I love you”, she said.

Phony smiles, on painted faces,
I force myself to laugh, on constant disgraces.

She says I’m a mess,
And nurses her pride,
Her stunts are so divine.
Admission? Of course!
Oh yeah, applause!
Just clowns in heartless shows…
Track Name: Exi(s)t
Extraordinary way to live.
What does it need to take control?
I own it all, I own it all!
And got some bruises that won’t heal.

A thousand people, they‘re annoying,
They keep going to their own direction, own direction.

We will be kings, without the slaves,
We will be children, we‘ll be whole.
We want it all, we want it all,
The mansions and the deepest caves.

A thousand people, they‘re annoying,
They keep going to their own direction, own direction.
A thousand people, they‘re annoying,
They keep moving on.
Track Name: Leap Of Faith
The life that we lived so far now we’ ll have to accumulate.
The thievery, the loss, the things that oblige us to suffocate.

And you know that I’m leaving, the road that I take doesn’t like those who wait and the ones who disguise,
As we have to arise and the night we’ll be ours, it’s a new dawn you ‘ll see just as long as we fight.

The recipe is right,
So just be sure what's we're planning to do tonight.
The recipe’s right,
And they will see what we’ll do tonight.

The loves, the fear, the fake, the real,
The choice you make, the friends you hate

And you know that I’m leaving, the road that I take doesn’t like those who wait and the ones who disguise,
As we have to arise and the night we’ll be ours, it’s a new dawn you ‘ll see just as long as we fight.

The recipe is right,
So just be sure what's we're planning to do tonight.
The recipe’s right,
And they will see what we’ll do tonight.

It really happens tonight
We’ll build the world as we promised
It think Gill said it will not be televised
I call to hear you on voicemail
Wear the green coat that I like
Manchester calling Berlin style
No people cannot be accidents in life
And we cannot be in exile.
Track Name: Strange Fever
When engineers are falling,
When the ship is going down,
When engineers are falling,
Who’s gonna keep him going?
Who’s gonna keep him going?
Who’s gonna fix him up this time?
When engineers are falling,
Who’s gonna keep him going?

When engineers are falling down,
When the ship is going,
Who’s gonna fix him up this time?
Who’s gonna keep him going?

Lost only where she needs to be,
she can’t escape herself now.
August’s the longest Sunday of all,
a love not felt but heard of.

He’s feeling dizzy when she’s not back,
(she rarely smiles, she rarely smiles)
just like a sailor on the land,
Low fever, strange fever.

Stars fall off her hands,
her eyes thunders and strikes,
hypnotized he sends his signs,
through machines and heavy drums.
(I wanna keep you from harm,
I’ m gonna tear you apart)
(The love, the guilt, the sorries)
Track Name: Goodnight Mrs. White
Donate part of the pillage,
Fascinate.
Choose your favorite fancy tablet,
Celebrate.

I think I’ m sick,
I think I’m sick,
Deep inside my mind.
I will spill my brains
All across your legs
Or at least I might.

Last deadly chance
(Don’t give a damn)
To start a fight
(Save yourself)
It looks like a dance
(don’t give a damn)
and it goes like…

Feeling bad for injustice,
Eat a cake.
Throw a bone, play the savior,
But I still care.

I think I’ m sick,
I think I’m sick,
Deep inside my mind.
I will spill my brains
All across your legs
Or at least I might.

Last deadly chance
To start a fight
It looks like a dance.

Every day I’m sick
Every day I’m sick
But each night I get better and better
Or at least I think.
Track Name: You Wanna Go For A Ride
Save your rage, save your rage,
I need you so.
All your guns, is your life a circus show.

Spend your rage, spend your rage,
Forget your name.
Work for me,
Make me rich it’s in your fate.

Do you wanna go for a ride?
I wanna ride you!
Come on let’s go for a ride…
(and let me…)



Severin, severin awaits you there.
Taste the whip, love the whip,
Without the fur.

Leave the rest, be alone
And you will be
Modern slave of the 21st century.

Do you wanna go for a ride?
I wanna ride you!
Come on let’s go for a ride

Wanna Go For A Ride?
I’m gonna ride you!
(Don’t stop working
Cause my heart will have to blow
Don’t stop shining
Cause my shine will have to slow)
