Track Name: Last Lines
These are my last lines
I’m texting, agonised
since last night
you are nowhere to be found
you’re my ailment
even when silent, you patronise
i’m patient
but this is too much compromise

You can say what you say,
but there’s nothing you could have done
You can say but I blame myself
because I should have known

Did I want too much?
with a love that isn’t hand me down
Was it too fun
When I was not around?
Did I go too far?
under the autumn skies
Could someone
be a better clown?


You can say what you say,
but there’s nothing I could have done
I can’t stay and I say
you should face it that I’m gone


these are my last lines
you’ll ever get, good bye
Track Name: Straight To Video
Soon I won’t be around,
just another book and it’s over
Soon I won’t be around,
no more deadlines for me
It’s time to bow out
I had my time and i’m colder
It’s time to bow out
there’s nothing left for me here


And if I’m looing back now,
the places and the people i conjured
and if I’m looking back now,
what did my words achieve?
How many nights have I spent
fabricating lives and i ponder
If i’ve missed anything
blocking out reality?


where’s the feel?
where’s the thrill?
where’s the truth I always yearned for?
I’ll never really know
while i still
have the skill
to tell a story
thousands still enjoy
it’s surreal
still I feel
my life goes straight to video
it’s going straight to video
Track Name: Pyrrhic Victory
You’ll never admit you want it
just how it used to be
for she can’t compete
with something the eye can’t see
cause i think every man likes
a bit of a mystery

i can”t get enough of
what only you do to me
Absorbed again
in our carnal discoveries
you think i’m in love
but you’re much more than that to me

tell me, tell me I can stay
cause without you i’m a lost girl
tell me, tell me I can stay
it’s too late for you to walk away
dont tell me you led me astray
it’s too late for you to walk away
i can’t let you throw this all away

you’re back to your home
and tell me we’re history
last night on the phone
your voice, valedictory
but I’d rather live
with a pyrrhic victory
Track Name: Monkey
what are you trying to tell me,
when you tell me i look so good?
what are you trying to tell me,
when you tell me i look so good?
I know I would

Now you’re trying to hit me
but I remember you from school
Now you’re trying to hit me
but I remember you from school
Now you’re trying to hit me
but I remember you from school
and i’m no fool

Now you want to be my monkey
but I think I’m too good for you
Now you want to be my monkey
but I think I’m too good for you
Now you want to be my monkey
but I think I’m too good for you
so, get in the queue

then we take a picture together
tryin’ to impress me, baby
you think you offer fun, but
please just stay away
you’re trying so hard
but you don’t mean a thing
you’re pushing it too far
why don’t you just….
Track Name: Numbers
a mother of two,
a widow on fire
stimulated
a silver spoon
a notorious liar
a perfect facelift
a girl from the moon
a korean spy
too complicated
a maniac fool
a wife-for-hire
well-educated

a hardcore drummer
and one from a choir
(unrelated)
a tattoed one
with a love for ire
decorated
a swedish goddess
with a killer desire
overrated
a pro dancer
who never got tired
yet compensated

so tell me the truth
what makes you cry
when you see me naked
getting it through
depends on you
how you play it
if you get me inspired
before i retire
i guess we’ll make it
I’m a broken tooth
but you’ve got youth


it’s just you and me
it’s just you and me
we are for real
Track Name: No Truce / ism
Can we wait?
until there is another day
and yet another excuse

and can we wait?
for something else to celebrate
an argument for booze


Is there hope?
No it’s never your fault
coz you’re the exception to the rule
is there :D hope?
Where is your protest song
and the next one

can I say?
I can’t just wait another day
its no time for a truce
and can I say?
well i will say it anyway
you get what you choose

there’re many things you want
and even more you can’t
you proved you’re a walk-on
there’re many things you want
and many things I won’t
it’s time for me to move on
Track Name: Cape
How i gape
Why do baddies wear a cape?

Force chokin’
Ain’t no jokin’
Ass kickin’
never nitpickin’

What a gait
There’s no escape

Wish I knew what my plans are
Track Name: Someday
I don’t know what I was thinking
all the way climbing up to my suite
that’s one-way
i’m not a man of confidence
there’s only one thing up my sleeve
find me

It hurts me so
the way you’re arresting my virgin soul
and if my heart’s at war
if you stay, its soldiers’ heads will fall

if there is something that haunts me
it’s when i do something i can’t do
maybe someday
peculiar, odd, unfortunate
wish i could tell you something that was true
maybe one day

A lonely fool, i’ve been cheated
You brought me to my knees
Baby don’t hurt me, no
In wanting you, i plead guilty
You brought me to my knees
Baby don’t hurt me, no
