Lyrics

Simpatico
That's where you go, yeah. It's the home of the uprooted
It's here and there Hey, I got both feet planted solid in the air
Hard to know, yeah, if you're dead or you're just too slow
But I should have known, but I was confused
And that you're innocent until you're abused
I stare at the frame 'coz the mirror hangs too low
And here's a man who never says No!
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico!

It's time to explain, I hear I haven't heard you right...
What's in your head - see I got no idea; 'coz my party's inside!
I stare at the frame 'coz the mirror hangs too low
And here's a man, who never says: no!
Simpatico! Wherever you go. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Simpatico! Simpatico! Simpatico!
Empty Heads
Hey, I'm the guy there on the wall and I'm all dismembered parts
Yeah, I got not arms or legs: So go ahead and call me - Art!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..

And now I'm floating in the sea. 'Coz I'm the guy that lost his job
Yeah, I lost my arms & legs, so go ahead and call me: Bob!!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..
Bad Craziness
Straight out of frame'n'bend out of shape
Nothing's real x-cept the money that we made
Staring at the place where the 2 walls meet
Yeah! - Take a chair'n'have a seat...
Well, I should see it as a brand new start
But I'm all Adams apple'n'a f-f-f-fast beatin' heart
My nerves they twist'n'they jerk
See no drugs will do the work
And I'll tell U for free
How I started stopped bein' me
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness

See the shadows dancing' on the cieling
Say, do U hear what I hear?
Like a T.V. no one watches
My head's filled with Yeahs'n'Overmuches
Walking trails on my livingroom floor
I feel that life won't be the same as before
Like an x-plorer; lookin' for help
I'd be happy to find myself..
And join the temple of hope
To keep my balance on this globe
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness
I had 2 feet on the ground now I'm almost gone!
B-B-B-Bad Craziness
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness ...

It's a bird, no a plane, it's a maaan insane!!

You won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
I got to tie my head to the T.V.'n'unplug the phone
Bad Craziness
I had 2 feet on the ground; now I'm almost gone
B-B-B-Bad Craziness
Now you won't believe what I believe when I'm alone
Bad Craziness
Bad Craziness
Yeah!
Bad Craziness Bad Craziness
Anything for a good night's sleep
Bad Craziness
I'm counting nightmares instead of sheep
Bad Craziness
'Coz U won't believe what I believe when I'm alone!.
Grow Or Pay
There was a real thin line
Between right or wrong
In those Walt Disney times
When my parents were young..
But the line has disappeared...
And you wonder where it hides....
And you wanna go out; but you stay inside.....

I got run over by truth one day
Didn't see the red light
Since the accident I've walked this way
- I only did what felt right...
But from this day on; it's either: grow or pay!
Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by truth one day

Sometimes the sky's so grey
That you cannot see beyond it
And even the wildest of dreams
- Can't take those lines from your forehead
Yeah! I know there's a bill
- And it's gonna make it's way somehow
With and excuse and a bow; I'll be paying it now:

I got run over by truth one day
Didn't see the red light
Since the accident I've walked this way
- I only did what felt right...
But from this day on; it's either: grow or pay!
Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by truth one day
Grow or pay
From this day on it's either: grow or pay
Grow or pay

Grow or pay
I got run over by the truth one day
And since the accident I've walked this way
Didn't see the red light
But from this day on; it's either grow or pay!

Grow or pay
'Coz I got run over by the truth one day...
Riding With Sue
We went out riding
Me and my girlfriend Sue
Riding through the desert
Where noone ever gets through
We got off our horses
And laid down in the sand
Suddenly I noticed
That we were in Disneyland..

- And I was looking at the sky
Looking at the *** above
Thinking 'bout the days
When we were still in love
Sweet, sweet, sweet harmless love...

We saw the hills in the distance
Their shape was coming clear
Her voice was full of tension
As she whispered in my ear:
- If you take me there I'll make you fly!!
(She petted my hand and she gave me the eye...)
- We'll be closer to God - Oh me, oh my
I didn't know she was going to die!

Chorus

We was heading for the mountains
And we started climbing up...
But when we reached the viewpoint
Sue decided to drop - Aaaaaaaargh
She fell for an hour
Turning 'round and 'round like a wheel
And when she hitted the bottom
I knew my heart would never heal!!!

Now I'm looking at the stars...
I Wont Cut My Hair
I got hair in my ears
I got hair in my nose
I got hair on my back
And between my toes
When the time comes & my hairwash is due
I'm gonna use one ton of shampoo
But don't give me those sentimental eyes
Coz I'm proud & my hair is nice

It's not fair when people they stare
I love the colors I wear
I wont cut my hair
I wont cut my hair
Oh no, I wont cut my hair
Coz I'm proud of my hair

And like in the funny fairytale
I dry my hair the Rapunzel way
U just climb up the six floors
To my hairy home
& I fix u a smoke in the blend of my own
Yeah, I'll make u a hot pot of tea
Take off your clothes feel free
And get down in my hair
And make me insane
Lets get airborne on window pain

It's not fair...

I would die without my hair

Yeah right, I'm playin' in the band
And I would love to be your private Disneyland
I'll be your own amusement park
Then you can ride me
And ride me after dark
If they send me to the rows of death
For having illegal dope
I will order as my last meal
Before's the chair
Hamburger french fries n coke

Take those scissors away
I wont cut my hair

'Cause I'm proud and my hair is nice
I love my hair
I'm in love with my hair

I'm in love with my haaaaiiiir
Cloudy Hours
For tomorrows unpaid fears - now I'm seeing future years
It's not death - it's hell I fear - Yeah, but still I come and go
What I pay to see the show - Yeah, right now it's all I know
'Coz in all those cloudy hours when your demons seize your brain
Yeah, you think, you're going crazy, but I'm going back again..
Yeah, I'm going back again

Yeah, moving walls of sound up to my neck, but I can't drown.
The rooms so small I can't fall down. I'm feeling lose,
But never free noone but myself to be. Oh, I wish you were like me
'Coz in all those cloudy hours when your demons seize your brain
Yeah, you think you're going crazy, but then you're coming back again
Yeah, in all those cloudy hours. see it's a game within the game
Yeah, I felt that I'd gone crazy - I'm going back again..
Yeah, in all those cloudy hours when a demon seized my brain
Yeah, I falt that I'd gone crazy - But I'm coming back again
Yeah, I'm coming back, I'm coming back again...
Reconstrucdead
When the fever burns your brain
When your heart has got a name
And you long for generous days
You want a spring in your walk and a smile on your face..
Another day inside the pearl
You could have screamed; leaving this world
You laugh'n'joke without a care
And bear a depression you can see from the air..

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead

A tambourine rings in my blood
The circus' rolling'n'the cage is locked..
So where's the light - a match that flares
- The pot at the end of the rainbow's where
Pick your nose as you pick your friends
Or spend a life in fear of the end
To tell a nodding shrink won't help
- So I say to myself: Hey, get a hold on yourself!

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead, reconstrucdead..

My eyes are blind My mind is numb
But my ears begin to hear - to hear the growing hum
Like a statue, jealous of the rush hour
I'm reconstrucdead like a monument, a monument to power
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
Standing high up as a tower now, but still the cracks will - yeah
The cracks will show
A lifetime of frustration - the things that I can't get
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead
Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead
Black Crickets
The winter of fortynine had passed
A winter of haunt n fear
Coz hunger had knocked at the city gate
And threatened the pioneers
Then low in the east strange clouds appeared
And dark became the sun
And the courage to fight n win a war
Was all of a sudden gone

Black crickets
By 10 of millions or more
Black crickets
By 10 of millions or more
Until the fields that waved were few
Black crickets

Crickets by 10 of millions came
Like fog on a british coast
They swept down from the mountain sides
Settled down by their mormon host
Then the eldest old man got this bright idea
And he called for all the men:
We'll build a giant nest & the crickets will fear
That the big bird is here again!!

Black crickets...

They constructed this nest 2 days went by
They all prayed that by the end of their work
The unexpected guests would fly

They saw the nest the vision occured
& the dogs would wag their tails
The crickets all shouted: Bird is the word!
And the insects hit their trail
All heads were bowed as they thanked their lord
And they reaped while the devil raved
Coz their harvest was saved to tons of praise
And the pioneers were saved

Black crickets...

Hundreds of thousands
Thousands of millions
Millions of billions
Billions of trillions
Trillions of zillions
D.A.Dillions of fantazillions
Of black crickets
Sleeping My Day Away
Mumbling goodmorning & raising my head
A bad breath kiss to my pillow pet
I take a look at the day turns & stay in bed
Open my eyes when the day have died
I turned the world and I slept allright
Now my daymare is over I zip my jeans tight
Oh lord won't you bless this night...

From the pale lips of a youth who lay
I'm sleeping my day away
And when the night comes to the city I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! With my pale lips in the pillow I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
After dark is the game I play
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away

When my dreams begin I'd be proud to be letting you in
With a smile on my face I guide our dreamboat in
So if you wanna travel along with me
You better sleep tight the rest of the day
You see I could be a sleeper it's not rest I lack
'Coz I hit the sack when the suns coming back

From the pale lips of a youth who lay
I'm sleeping my day away
And when the night comes to the city I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! With my pale lips in the pillow I say:
I'm sleeping my day away
That after dark - is the game I play
I'm sleeping my day, I'm sleeping my day, I'm sleeping my day
I'm sleeping my day away
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! Now I've turned the world around yeah! I did it again
I'm sleeping my day away
And now I have to wear my shades down sleepers lane
I'm sleeping my day away
Yeah! All the good people have gone to bed again
I'm sleeping my day away
'Coz the devil's at work inside my brain
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away
I'm sleeping my day away I'm sleeping my day away away...
Jihad
From the steamin Mekong delta
To the shores of Tonkin bay
Bombs of yellied gasoline
Is making night as bright as day
And the mogul's hard tank masters
Adore their new grenades
And the D.A.D. find their 9" shells
Are great for border raids

Yeah! I'm superfurious
I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left
For the pilgrims

And you can shake your fist at the T.V. set
And you can slam your hand in the table
And you can cry and curse
Through tightlocked teeth
Just as hard as you are able
But you can't run away from trouble
'Coz there ain't no place that far
No fuel left for the pilgrims
Yeah! That's just the way we are

'Coz I'm superfurious I've done it again
I reach 50 when I count to 10
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims
Jihad, I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims

This is tower again, do you read me? You can get the girls & the
videomachine but the fuel you asked for... You cannot have!

What?! Blow me to heaven!!
Jihad I'm getting so mad I'm getting so mad
..Who's mad I'm mad, so mad
Jihad I'm getting mad
And there's no fuel left for the pilgrims.
Etc.
Written In Water
Set out on a laughless day
Like a troupe of clowns
Peekin' out of a show man's car
Through cabbage town...
You feel a cold wind blow
Through your open mind
The end is about to start
So you shut it hard...
As the weather girl predicts:
Conducting the clouds with her stick
The day will be clear'n'funny
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Down the crater of your ear

As long as the flavor lasts
In c-h-e-w-i-n-g gum
As long as we float around
This golf ball sun...
The light to replace the day
Is ten shades of gray
A kiss removes the skin
Shows you where you've been
Under the ultra-violet ray
A rule every fool obeys
Hold up your name in fire
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear..
Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Down-the-velvet-crater-of-your-ee-aa-rrr

Yeah, written in water
It's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear
Written in water
It's bound to disappear
Down the velvet crater of your ear
Iiiiiiiiiiiihhjairr!... Written in water
It's After Dark
I'm looking at the sky, I'm trying
Not to cry, coz' it's over
The're turning down the light
It's late now
Wave the last
Goodbye...

Coz it's after dark now
And Disneyland is closed
We've been served
Icecold beer
And Walt is our host

It's after dark now
And Disneyland is closed...
The party is over
The night is here
Let's bring out a toast...
Laugh 'n' A 1/2
I learned politeness on my mother's knee..
I learned by uprightness my number of friends
Should increase...
- When I think about the things I've done...
I laugh out loud to noone ...
- Yeah, to noone..
- 'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good...
- But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- But I became honest Mr. Mistaken
In spite of the curves my smile was makin'...
Bumpers and kickers in one big stream
I grew up in a life size pinball machine!
Yeah! - They're mean!.
'Coz it's so hard to meet the eyes that I see
When I try to open up my heart...
There's something inside me'n'I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good...
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- I tried to fill some silence -
'Coz the silence feels so long..
- I knew the ice was gettin' thinner
But I kept skating on!..
My mother threw me into this world as a winner
- But by the light of the yellow beer
They tell the jokes I'll never get to hear!!
- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good..
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2

- On my behalf
There's something inside me and I know it's good
But understanding, it's misunderstood
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2.
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2..
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2...
At the end of a smile, there's a laugh'n'a 1/2....
Jacketless In December
I'm freezing
Them I'm letting go
You only hear the silent snow
Running from it; am I getting weak?
But what are friends for
I only remember:
Jacketless in icecold december

In a dream, but wide awake
Now I know my own mistakes
- from without - to within...
Now I'll live with everything

Blame another, but the shame is in your mind
For what is lost and hard to find
The door is closed, to light and truth
What are friends for
Yeah, I remember:
Jacketless in icecold december

In a dream...

I've seen how the world appears
- through a mist of tears
I've been in a very bad mood,
as if I knew...
You always end up empty
- so full of yourself
I can safely say now,
even the oldest trick that exist:
That you can still disappoint a pessimist!

Yeah, in a dream...
