Last Chance To Change

Suppose I've got no direction
But continue I must
I've gotta use the gift
In my possesion
Though the reason is lost
It's like a big bad seed
In my head now
It's like a germ that infects
It's a plant that's taking over
And growing
It's a thing that I must do to exist
I need the attention
Like a cat in a tree
Becoming the monkey
And you wanna be me
Yeah I lost the last chance to change
Yeah I lost the last chance to change

I'm tangled up in indescision
With or without a good plan
Leaping forward without a mission
Into a sea of waving hands
What is the truth
For a tired old joke
If it's handgrenade humour
I'll wash my mouth with soap
Yeah I lost the last chance to change
We lost the last chance to change

Last Mango In Paris

When I'm wrong I admit it
When I'm right I shut up..
But, if you're hairless with apes
You get to mop the mess up
U do me no justice
U can't sentence or judge me
I know u can't grade me (oh no)
Change is pain

So here we go:
Yeah, yeah, yeah
What a show
I won't bossanova my way outa this
No no no
What a blow
I won't bossanova my way outa this
Hey-he-yh-ey
This, I know: I won't bossanova my way outa this
It feels good to be careless
Last mango in Paris
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I've fooled everyone completely
Everyone, except you..
And maybe a few others
Yeah, what can a fool do?..
I got clothes in my wardrobe
They'll make me feel allright
I was aiming to please
'Coz you see... Yeah
There's just a few of us..

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....

Laugh and a ½

I learned politeness on my mother's knee..

Lawrence of Suburbia

Wide eyed
Open mouthed
Blank faced
Low clouds
Long walk
Up from hell
But I came back
Back unbent
What it means
Is that I'm good
That much
Is understood
But all in the room
Is dark because
Life is no longer what it was

Lawrence of Suburbia
Real life is murder
Wake up from Utopia
On it again
All aboard the moneytrain

Everyday
As a rule
I'm distant
I'm cool
Not the same
As before
I've folded up suicide
In four
But this dirty sun
Shining down
Pierce the dark
And the sound
All you'll see
Is a tightlipped smile
On a scared little man
As the train runs wild...

Life Right Now

I heard a cold advice: pick on someone your own size
And that leaves you, and rules out me.. 'Coz it's a kick in the head
Hey, everybody said, I didn't turn the other cheek
You think I'm weird. How weird are you?
Do you get tired when people stare?? Hey, I know, I do...
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile

I fly around like a bee and everything you do - I see
Yeah, I see you when you're weak - but with my head on my spine
I go to yours and you go to mine - the world's rocking under my feet
As though the present's never here
Hey, hey.. It's always last week and it's always next year
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile

It's hard to do - too hard to take - I'm pretty scared and very wide awake
I see the road, not the turns ahead - so I say...
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile
It's the way life is right now and I'm seeing things in a different light

What if tomorrow wasn't there - never a next week
Never just another year - Yeah, like time just disappear
It's the way life is right now...................... I heard a cold advice:
Pick on someone your own size and that leaves you and rules out me..

Little Addict

Little addict
Worst I've seen
For your own good
Don't get mean
If I seem distant
C'mon guess who moved
It's your own existence
No excuse
Won't you tell me
What you find
When you get a life
And start shaping your mind
Then I'll tell you
What I see
When you do it for money
You'll never do it for free
Yeah you had it too close to the bone
You're perfect
When you're not stoned

Tell me how it feels
To be in your shoes
With your natural gift
For hiding the truth
When the world outside is slowing
You stop yourself from growing
Won't you tell me
What you find
Little addict
Too close to the bone
You're perfect
When you're not stoned

Look What The Drug Dragged In

Sky blue
And a desert tan
Faded, jaded, doomed star
The mystery showman
Listens to no man
He's just itching for his old guitar..

Moanday, tearsday
He'll walk on legs of clay
Waitsday, thumbsday
He's only in the way
Frightsday, shatterday
Again a voice will say:
Look What The Drug Dragged In....

Lords Of The Atlas

In my travelling heart, there's an urge to see
Foreign lands and alien birds, new stories that noone heard
To stick a pin in the globe and to believe and hope
There's a whole new world to unravel
As far as a boyscout can travel..
Company of adventurers On the secret track
Caesars of the wilderness Around the world & back
Cardcarrying members Lords of the atlas

To see God standing on a local hill
And to know there's forests unthrod still
Don't look back when you climb the stairs
I'm travelling on mental fares
Going through the eternal cloudland
To the ends of the world..
And after 2000 steps of climbing...
- I know it was the whole trip worth!
Company of adventurers On the secret track
Caesars of the wilderness Around the world and back
Cardcarrying members Lords of the atlas
- We're the lords Yeah, we're the lords of the atlas

Sitting crosslegged on a persian rug
Addicted to a 1000 drugs
Our flags nailed onto a mast
Captain says: Forward .!

Company of adventurers On the secret track
Caesars of the wilderness Around the world and back
Cardcarrying members Lords of the atlas

Mad Days

Making the the worst of a bad situation with an ants patience and a fleas strength
Like a kid about to squash an insect - I'll break it down and build it up again
Yeah, mad days to shut out the pain - the 7 sins - the sorrows seven
You seek wild friendships, but never a friend - it's always mad days to shut out pain

If you can't have all; have some more of the bitter best or the sugared worst
Yeah, the blackest night on another planet - a hand out of space; picking you up
You seek wild friendships, but never a friend - it's always mad days to shut out pain

It's the same situation - same head - my eyes are fire-engine red
Staring at a hole through space - the pain goes away - the wound stays...
When love is a nothing place - dive into: mad days...

Makin' Fun Of Money

Yeah! See the milk's in the fridge
And it's turning into cheese
If I'm so smart; how come I ain't rich?
- No one knows'n'no one sees...
My moral compass went out of course
And I ran aground
U gotta watch how you get...
- But what the hell what the heck!
-- I mean, I wrote out the check!!
It ain't the money you got / No it's the money you spend
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
- See it's already a mess
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
The Visa's, Diner's'n'Master, Express

The cold hand of currency
Grips my heart at night
Right now it's raining unpaid bills
From an unknown height..
Though the story ain't that funny
There was once when I had money
I act like I got it / Pretend I know
- It's minus 500,000...
It ain't the money you got.. / No it's the money u spend
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
See, it's already a mess
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
The Visa's, Diner's'n'Master, X-press...
- Makin' fun o' money
It's the D.A.D.'n' the I.R.S.
Yeah! I ain't got no hot water
And the cold's running thin..
I keep conversations from a public phone
- In this place I call home; I'm livin' in...
Makin' fun of money
¥ $'n'all...
Makin' fun of money
All rolled up in a ball..
Makin' fun of money
And with a tremblin' hand:
Makin' fun of money
- I pay what I can
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
- No, it's already a mess
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
The Visa's, Diner's'n'Master, X-press
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
The D.A.D.'n'the I.R.S.
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
Yeah! It's already a mess
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
No'n'I know; 'Coz I tried it!?
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
- It ain't funny no!!
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
- I'm way behind
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
It ain't funny makin' fun of money
