LEAVE NOW AND NEVER COME BACK

 

I never should have told you, that I´ve lost my faith in anything

Sometimes I act quite stupid, saying whiny jerk things, you know,

you know

 

There´s just this pattern in my being, a steady curse on our existence,

when you think you got the answer cuz you fail to understand that you don´t,

you don´t

 

And then you try

 

There´s a blood stain on the carpet that looks like you haven´t done well,

there´s too much out of concept now you fail to understand that you don´t,

you don´t

 

There´s an odd face on the magazine that teaches me to breathe right,

the birthmark of our tiredness, straight into the yellow gray we go,

we go go go

 

And then you try

as if that´s anything to be proud of

 

The blankness

The craving

The circular roads

If you don´t end this there´ll be a thousand to go

So come on voodoo jesus drag queen,

help me help me out

 

Cuz I don´t wanna spend too

I don´t wanna spend too

I don´t wanna spend too much soul on this

 

And I wish I could give birth to anything that´s somehow beautiful

and I wish I was on fire, burning on a medieval stake,

a stake

 

And then you try

 

There´s a blood stain on the carpet, that looks like you haven´t done well,

there´s too much out of concept now you fail to understand that you don´t,

you don´t

 

I remember when I was younger, when they called me in and split my bones

and cut my hair and laughed and moaned yearning for blood

the things had lost their names

 

If noone can see you

Go back south

Bite off the world´s nipple

with your mouth

Bite off the world´s nipple

with your hungry, hungry mouth

 

Nothing ever will end if you don´t end

Words will spread, heads will drop

if you don´t end

 

Seas will rise, cars will crash

if you don´t end

this

 

 

RAISON, RAISON

 

Are you craving for warmth, are you craving for peace?

Are you ready to face all the havoc you wreaked?

How could you be so dumb, how could you fail to see,

euphoria has never yet come for free?

 

This is where you belong, this is where you belong

Was that all you could offer, kid to prove them wrong?

Keep on staring at things, try to make them move

The solitude that you´re in is the solitude that you

choose

 

Don´t aim to high

You´ll fall and roast on fire

 

So stop causing a scene, stop causing a scene

there is nothing you can do to save your freak soul, kid

and if the voice inside your head should cry out in fright

at the emptiest of times in the emptiest of nights

Just mute it

 

Don´t aim to high

You´ll fall and roast on fire

On fire, on fire, on fire

 

Call for mom

Call for mom

Call for mom

 

 

THE EVIL AND THE LOVELORN

 

I´ll cast out the ghosts that haunt me

I´ll cast out the ghosts that haunt me

I´ll cast out the ghosts that haunt me

I´ll cast out the ghosts that haunt me

 

There´s more to this life than the truth

There´s more to this life than the truth

There´s more to this life than the truth

There´s more to this life than the truth

 

There was no mark on our heads when we were born

No mark on our heads when we were born

No mark on our heads when we were born

We´re only evil cuz we´re lovelorn

 

If i really tried

I think that I could

But I´m feeling tired and misunderstood

If I really tried

I think that I could

But my will´s no good, my will´s no good

 

I wanna sleep in the sand

I wanna sleep in the sand within you

My love

And all I´ve ever feared will be buried in the sand within you

Oh love

As now these words leave my mind

And there´s nothing in these words that can be

I must find a home cuz there´s nothing out here to mend me

Oh love, oh love, oh love

 

This creature is me

My pain and lust

It´s shameful to fail but maybe we must

If I really tried

I think I could trust

But my body´s acid and my mind is dust

And now it´s come down to this –

To what we fear the most –

And as I cry out this words the meaning gets lost

So now it´s come down to this and it´s simple and yet absurd

 

“THE MORE YOU DISCLOSE THE MORE YOU GET HURT”

 

 

GUERNICA

 

When I was a child

my head ached every night

I´m not callous

Divisions allied and fought nuclear wars on my mind

The older you grow, the harder you fall is what i learned

I cursed myself and kicked and screamed and yearned

 

I´m not callous

I´m not careless

I´m not callous

I´m not callous

I´m not

 

Be a brave little boy and take things as theyre coming

with your arms open wide and your head to the ground

 

Arrange yourself

Arrange yourself

 Arrange yourself

Arrange yourself

 

We´re not ours

Stop

 

Find me up in the mountains

Past the thorn wall

In a land without a name

I´ll be happy

All by myself

Breaking every rule ever made

And just sometimes

I´ll come raging

On a firehorse to the ground

And I´ll capture

To write history

Oh oh oh oh

Oh oh oh

 

Here I come

 

 

CLARET

 

I was the first to appear,

I´ll be the last one to leave

I came with my boots on but I´ll

Walk off on bare feet

 

And the mob in my head sings of eternal wars

and mad things that they´ve seen

Of the struggle of souls and the wonders of earth

and that the brown succeeds the green

 

And how the true grace of love only shows when you miss it

 

I´m ripping the flesh off my body

And I´ll pile it up in front of you oh ohhh ohhh

Everything I say is pointless

And nothing ever bears the truth oh ohhhh ohhhh

 

The bright fluctine days and

The calm benzo nights

The shivering lows

And the maniac highs

 

And the blessings of birth and the menace of death

And the blank in between

All the waste of ideas

And this permanent state of questioning that I´m in

 

Do the things that I desire still turn to stone when I touch them?

 

This all´s just a fucking pathetic

Last effort to recover youth oh ohhhh oh

Everything I do is filthy

and nothing ever bears the truth oh ohhhh ohhhh

 

Sweet claret hell, sweet claret hell

What was it that shook me that I couldnt tell?

Sweet claret hell, sweet claret hell

Can the poor only buy what the wealthy want to sell?

 

The closer I get to my real self

The further I vanish from you

Everything in here is worthless 

And nothing embodies the truth ohhhh ohhhh

 

Still the cells in my blood

Fuel the mess in my skull

And there´s nothing that ever will change

 

Nor the wrongs

Nor the rights

Nor the spaces and times

Nor the people I´ve met and forgot

 

Let this shell that I´ve made

Be my home till the end

Let me repent and abandon sin

 

Till the water I´ve drunk

turns to wine in my heart,

and by dawn I´ll be gone with the wind ...

 

 

A NEW DAY

 

Stare me down,

but my eyes won´t tell you nothing,

my eyes won´t tell you nothing

of my pain

 

I hear you well,

but the words don´t tell me nothing

the words don´t tell me nothing

of who I am

 

And that old man was right,

when he decried human life

and its perpetual chill

We´re only slaves to our will

 

Knock me out now

I think I need some sleep

I´ll submit myself to mediocracy

The bird song is vicious

and the air reeks of chlorine

Is it becoming real? Can it be?

The sun´s going down on me

 

Leave me now

Drag me to the forrest

Cover me with mud and moss and leaves

 

It´s a new dawn,

but the things still lack their meaning,

yea everything´s as vague as yesterday

 

And so it seems quite odd,

we´ve broken everything up and left nothing to begin

These are strange times we´re in

 

Knock me out now

I think I need some sleep

All that I have been is cold and obsolete

The morning tastes bitter and the air reeks of chlorine

Has it come so far? Can it be?

The sun´s going down on

me

 

And I do miss that time,

when every low had a high

cuz even the worst of pain

would once be allayed again

 

And each delirious night

would still leave traces of life

within this tin heart of mine

I surely do miss that time

 

 

CHAINSAW MASCARA

 

Sweet Elena, only love

Silent queen of musk

Though still you lie here motionless,

you´ll never fade to dust

 

Oh in timeless, sacred nights

the past and gone must linger on

And oh while all the world backs off

I´ll wake bright-eyed till dawn annoys

my sight

 

And when I spread your thighs,

and when I bite your lips

I swear can almost hear you

sigh my name

You know how hard I´ve tried

I failed a thousand times

and yet I went on for you oh say say say

Elena, don´t I move?

Elena, don´t I move

your piano wire heart?

 

Oh and through eternal times

I´ll keep you from their hostile eyes

And oh while all the world backs off

Your hands guide mine further into

the light

 

 

AMBIEN

 

You´ll burn in hell soon

 

Passing out slowly

Passing out slowly

Can you be a part of me and my longing?

Ashtray girl on the picture in front of me

Please say that you can

 

All work and no play

makes Jack a dull boy

All play and no work

makes Jack a mere toy

 

How I hate those average endings,

I´d rather drown than just being best friends

 

The time has come to put the matters straight

To cut the crap and call a spade a spade,

but the slumber won´t just give way

(Oh lord, forgive me!)

Beware! The witch has just cast her net

for all the children with the horseshoe heads

and her oven´s always

on fire

 

You´re dynamite

You´re dynamite

You´re dynamite

You´re dynamite

 

There´s a burden on all of us deadbeats,

half-open mouths with dragon-like bodies

Being fed by our innermost dark deeds

Well this ain´t L.A. and it´s not the fucking Seventies

The future now is a note on our bed stands

only sometimes eyed with a sad glance

The world´s fate is all in my bare hands!

THE WORLD´S FATE IS ALL IN MY!

 

All in my hands

All in my hands

I know, it´s only in my hands

 

All in my hands

All in my hands

I know, it´s only in my hands

 

 

THE INCREDIBLE WHITENESS

 

Turn on, tune in and drop out

feel the heat, taste the sweetness

of my tongue on your tongue

in the eye of the storm

 

Hurry now, hurry now

Don´t look back,

Let it go,

keep on running

from all of the things that they told us were real

 

So let´s choke out our hearts

and carve names on our palms

We can swallow the earth

We can blister the sun

Let the pain be our art

Let the battle errupt

for the sea will divide

and break down behind us

 

Breathe in, breathe out and crawl back

to the wombs of our mothers

and on our way

let´s raze cities to the ground

 

All their blood will gather and crash

into the wasteland´s nameless oceans

Can we dive to the bottom and still not drown?

 

So let´s wallow in dirt

So let´s wade through the night

We can fuse our backbones

We can blindfold the sky

We will never be caught

We will stand all attacks

For the rain will clash down

and extinguish our tracks

 

Let the pain be our art

Let the battle errupt

We can swallow the earth

We can blister the sun

And on our final day

We´ll feel shameless delight

As we crawl towards that beam

of incredible white

 

 

BROOMSTICK JESUS

 

If you want me to rise,

I´ll surely stretch my limits for you,

I will

I will

 

Bear our own paradise

where reason´s just the reverse of truth

I will

I will

 

Freeze myself in the state

of the moment you desired me most

So don´t

So don´t

 

Promise me times of gold,

when all I want is crawl back into

the sadness between your thighs

 

Now there´s nothing here

All is said and yet

There´s a thousand words

Stuck in my throat

And I guess you´re right

I´m silly again

Like I always act

When things break

 

Kiss me I´m borderline,

I could wake 20 hours a day,

I could

I could

 

Chase all your fears away

and crush all of your enemies heads

If you only asked me

 

But great ideas demand great people

and we´re not cut from that cloth

And so lately what we once shared

has just become the next cut

 

And still I can never change

what´s been said today

Knew you couldn´t cope

but I

said it anyway

Knew I shouldn´t have

but it was what I felt

Just the truth

bout how I cannot breathe when I´m close to you

and how you complete me

but I don´t you

 

Boy, shut up and cut the drama

Oh boy, oh poor boy

Boy, now won´t you cut the drama

Oh boy, oh poor boy

Boy, shut up and cut the drama

Oh boy, oh poor boy
