Track Name: Chewing Your Bones
Chewing your bones
Sucking your knees
You're all alone

Eating your hair
Scratching your lungs
Waiting for your time

Sing a sad, sad, sad song
No you're not, you're not alone

Slobbering in your ears
Licking your eyes
It's gone away.

Nibbling your toes
Sipping your spinal
Killing the hours

Sing a sad, sad, sad song
No you're not, you're not alone

Swallow your teeth
Burning your clothes
Caught in the headlights

Have a party in your car
And call your mum
You’re freaking out

Sing a sad, sad, sad song
No you're not, you're not alone

Hear what I say
You're not on earth to stay
Hear what I say
Only your love is real
Track Name: Death to the Music
DEATH TO THE MUSIC

This repetition you loved
This one chord song, does it still remain the same?
This no-punk band you had
your MDMA friends, are they still in town?

A head, dancing in a bunker, wrapped in a drone
These girls, yelling in the streets,
why am i not one of them?

We met as we were kids
my hand in yours, tense with fear
Not so long ago

As you don't love me anymore, all I can sing now is, Death to the music.

A picture of fright and boredom
Skinheads clothes beached in a junkyard
Organ punishment and bleeding ears
GTAIE Melancholy

A head, dancing in a bunker, wrapped in a drone
These girls, yelling in the streets,
why am i not one of them

We met as we were kids
my hand in yours, tense with fear
Not so long ago

As you don't love me anymore, all I can sing now is, Death to the music.
Track Name: The NBA Conspiracy
I can make it more greasy, sticky and spongy.

I belong to the adolescent plague
I belong to the Bleeder's failures
I belong to my father's apathy
I belong to the same old joke

I belong to the night cramps.
I belong to the grey hole sky
I belong to the NBA conspiracy
I belong to the endless nameless

I'm not that stranger to you.
Track Name: Somebody Else is Living Your Own Life
Little girl and the falling tooth
I'm not the one I really expected
Child where have we landed?
I remember you smell the same

Once more
It's the season of the pharmacy
Don't you know who I am?

Ants on a white plastic chair
are fixing your memory.
Your voice remains the same
while I became a dead fingernail

Once more
It's the season of the pharmacy
Don't you know it is the same?

When somebody else is living your life.
Track Name: Father
FATHER

" Old man from the old land
Have you been trying to kill me all my life?"

-" Oh sweet child
don't ever ask me why,
unless one day you come to hate yourself "

-" I was growing up absurd
Until you've introduced me to the truly important things"

-" True, I've never learned
how to make friends but I learned
early how to fill my needs"

- " So we play by our own rules
This is how houses catch fire. "
Track Name: The Falconer Girl
Cigarettes in her hands seem more graceful than in yours
The smoke before her eyes comes from a country of which you are banned.
Stains on her apron tell more stories than your whole life
From her dextrous hands, trains the love
the love as a bird of prey.

She puts her glove and clenches her fist.
A silver move.

The child walking by her side is the goddess of the dawn
As I saw all the shades of the light day in Ellie’s eyes.

She puts her glove and clenches her fist.
A silver move.

Swallow me, digest my fear
Fly the falcon out of me
Make me forget myself

The Falconer Girl
My Falconer girl
The Falconer girl
My Falconer girl
Track Name: Never Smile
he never smiles
he never smiles
his eyes are dead
truly and simply dead
he never smiles

he never opens his mouth
he never opens his mouth
except to inspire the smoke
except to expire the smoke

let me down gently
on his blank body
let me down gently
on this blank beauty

the night lies by his side
the night breathes by his side
it's waiting for him all day
it's waiting for him all day
the night is on his side

he leaves no traces in the room
he leaves no traces in the air
only scars on my skin
only scars on my skin

let me down gently
on his blank body
let me down gently
on this blank beauty
Track Name: BASEMENT DREAMS
Immaculate is the salt desert.
Just like you
Blind is the hard rain
Just like you
Pure is the scorched earth
Just like you
Oh I can not resign

Lady lying in your basement dreams
Lady laughing at the gates of my night
My voice is real, your body rises over the hill
As long as you are the breath and the bite

Fathomless is the darker ink
Just like you
Majestic is the forsaken factory.
Just like you
Meaningless is the fiery star.
Just like you
Oh I can not resign

Lady lying in your basement dreams
Lady laughing at the gates of my night
My voice is real, your body rises over the hill
As long as you are the breath and the bite
Track Name: Ellie Jane
ELLIE JANE

The moon is bright
The freeway's stars are dancing in my eyes
Oh Ellie Jane I don't need to hide
Oh Ellie Jane I am drifting by your side

The grass is dark
The night is lush, your voice swings in my blood
Oh Ellie Jane you know something we don't
Oh Baby
I knew you'd find me.

The sun is high
The day in bloom, I heard you call my name
With your smiles like hymns,
your country love songs, this wild world inside you.
Oh Ellie Jane does it show on my face?
Oh Ellie Jane, this wild world inside me.


I'll walk through the deserts
I'll travel through the streets
Everything that can sing,
will sing for you.
