Track Name: Continuity
There is a pain
Which says a lot
His lashes closing on a tear.
To listen, to say:
“Despite, despite it all
We’re here, we’re here.”
Walking at dawn
I stop at every mirror
of each car to see
What you last saw of me.
Track Name: Tapuz 9
You’re waiting, I’m here and you’re waiting
You’re waiting, I’m here and you’re waiting
But there won’t be no wedding.
there won’t be no wedding
there won’t be no wedding
There won’t be, no.

Oh, I know I promised
But all those boys on the tram
Got me so confused
I can’t choose!
Oh I know I promised
I know I promised
I know I promised
Oh, too bad, well

Tearing up the laces of my wedding gown
I refuse to cut my hair
After drinking all that wine
There’s no use to go upstairs

And now you’re waiting
I’m here and you’re waiting
You’re waiting, I’m here and you’re waiting…
Track Name: Death of a Parent
His wounds have already suppurated
When we’ve seen him last
His soul had been that of a broken man
When we’ve seen him last
And all his broken words strolled down to the lake
Telling us all it was a big mistake

Her bones were already far too scattered
When we’ve seen her last
Her heart had been left old and swollen
When we’ve seen her last
And all her drunken tears swam back to the sea
Telling us all there was nothing left to see

The story of a death of a parent
The oldest one in our book
The story of a death of a parent
The oddest one.

His wounds have already suppurated.
Track Name: Microwave
Looking for my little maid girl
She’s gone out of this town

Everything is oh so messy
And I am left undone

Who will love me
When you don’t love me?
And who will seek me
When you don’t seek me?

You should know I still keep
A train number, a name of a band
On a picture: a type handling his car

But that is all behind us now
Now that we have a microwave
Now that we have
Solutions.
Track Name: Sea My Eyes
See my eyes weeping
See my smile curving
I know that I have fallen again

But he steps into the other room
Just to avoid my gaze
Track Name: GoNowFool
Take me where your belt is
Lying, take me to the chair
Then the window where
I wait for the bells
To quiet me and they
Come with wind too cool
So go
now
gonow
gonowfool


I’m tired of just watching them
I’m tired of just watching them
I’m tired of just watching them

I know I know he thinks about it
I know I know how good it feels
To have a girl so
Leaning on you
Her closed eyes
Soft
Against
Your breast
Her drowsy innocence
At your disposal
And you are honest
Honestly
You think you’ve
Known her
All your life.

My body functions
It’s a tool
It’s old and oily
Made of steel
My body functions
somehow still
Somewhat ill
It sweats on

Neglected tormented, wishing it were other
Neglected tormented, wishing it were other

Take me where your belt is
Lying, take me to the chair
Then the window where
I wait for the bells
To quiet me and they
Come with wind too cool
So go
now
gonow
gonowfool

Neglected tormented, wishing it were other

And you are honest
Honestly
You think you’ve
Known her
All your life.

I’m tired of just watching them.
I’m tired of just watching them.

Take me where your belt is
Lying, take me to the chair
Then the window where
I wait for the bells
To quiet me and they
Come with wind too cool
So go
now
gonow
gonowfool
Track Name: Keltish
When she told me he was there yesterday
Something in me died
And today quite unsurprisingly
Other things have died beside

I’m not the saint that people make of me
All my virtues are in vain
I’m vain I’m vain I’m vain

Don’t you lay your precious trust in me
I am bound to let you fall
In my dreams no lover is haunting me
It is I who haunt them all

I’m not the saint that people make of me
All my counsels are in vain
I’m vain, I’m vain, I’m vain.

I will soon demand your secrets
But I’ll stay as blank as dead
And tomorrow quite unsurprisingly
I will look from my deathbed

I’m not the saint that people make of me
All my sorrows are in vain
I’m vain
I’m vain
I’m vain
Track Name: Sheryl Crow Down Hill
It’s just as easy as it seems.
It’s just as easy as it seems.
Why won’t you take my word for it?

I sink, I dive
I think, I care
I think, I dive
I sink, I care

All of a sudden I was facing the ground
All of a sudden there were people around me
They were gathering all around
And they were asking all sorts of questions
They were asking do I need a glass of water?
Where do I come from?
Do I need to be taken home?
And I was saving my skin
And I was saving my fare
Just to save my affair

It’s just as easy as it seems
It’s just as easy as it seems
Why won’t you take my word for it?

I sink I dive I think I care
I think I dive I sink I care

All of a sudden you were facing my heart
and you were standing on the balcony
and throwing my stuff downstairs
and you said:
“take your clothes and take your stockings
take your fluffy cat away
and I don’t ever wanna see you
and don’t you ever come back here”
and you were hurling me away
and, and I was saying: “please, baby, please, just give me one more chance and you, and I was… and I was… and I didn’t know what to do and I didn’t know where to turn and I just didn’t wanna lose you.

I sink I dive I think I care
I sink I dive I think I care
I sink I care I think I dive
Nowhere
Track Name: Corridor
I search: salvation
In the corridor
But when the clock rings nine
I’m searching no more
You haunt me when I’m green
And you try me till I’m tired
And I’m tired of these things
And I want you to go
When I’m done with my searching
I want you to go
When I’m done with my searching
I want you to go

When I’m down by the fountain
I’m down where you left me
I’m done when you left me
I’m done
But I’ve so much to learn
I’ve so much to learn.
Track Name: Curtains
The curtains are made for moving
Cause you know sometimes you’re not always there
You don't need it now, your head just like a cow
Till all is here, the world's just a sphere
No bigger than the balls you suck

Hey, you with your head down
Don't you know they’re can't be where it's always at?
You've all been always here, your head just like a pear
You search through the light, instead of jump in the pot
Of life that just lies till it’s just right.

You so often sit alone
On the west side wheel of the meals that you steal
To get around the curtain of this lodge
It always make you feel the best
You always mean less and less of the casual voices
That lead you away from the nest.

I know your face, It's all out of place.
Track Name: I'll Get It
Ah, I’ll get it
I’ll get it
Ah, I’ll get it
I’ll get it
I will have to go now all the way with it because you let me

Stay here
I’ll get it
I’ll get it
Ah, and regret it
Regret it
I will have to go now all the way with it because you let me
Ah…
Ah…
Track Name: Henry's Dream
Henry comes up to me
In his silver suit
Henry comes up to me
With his silver fruit

And he comes to me with his gown
And he comes to take me down
And he comes to me in the corner
And he corners me

I am running away
I am hiding in the ladies room.

Henry comes up to me
In his silver suit
Henry comes up to me
With his silver fruit

And he comes to me underground
And his smile turns into frown
And he comes to me in the corner
And he corners me

I am running away
I am hiding in the ladies room

I am running away
I am hiding in the ladies room
- “Come into my arms
it’s all gonna change now”

Come, descend into my arms
It’s all gonna change now

Come, descend into my arms
It’s all gonna change now

Come, descend into my arms
It’s all gonna change now

Come, descend into my arms
It’s all gonna change now

It’s all gonna change now
It’s all gonna change now
It’s all gonna change now
It’s all gonna change now
It’s all gonna change now

Change now
Track Name: True Love
True love will find you in the end

You'll find out just who was your friend

Don’t be sad, I know you will,
But don’t give up until

True love will find you in the end.

This is a promise with a catch

Only if you're looking can it find you

‘Cause true love is searching too

But how can it recognize you

Unless you step out into the light?

Don’t be sad I know you will
But don’t give up until

True love will find you in the end.

True Love Will Find You in
