Pit

My flesh and bones may burn in sweat
because I stress every moment that I get
I wish for calmness in my blood
but i rapidly wish for futures hug
and I may name myself a queen
A queen of my own recipe
I stir and stir what needs to be blent
And I forget to add myself again
I am surely to subsideI feel my skin is melting of of me
I wish to hard that it would stick
But life stuck me hard with Its ungraceful flick

At night in terror
I loudly shriek
I wish for him to hurry, come and get me
Down here, down here, down here in the
Down here, in the pit
I need help to get out from the pit that I´m in
from the pit that I´m in
Down here, in the pit
I need help to get out from the pit that I´m in
from the pit that I´m in
In the sun, in the sun
where the shadows are shadows
Not hidden away in the dark
I´ll take the moon, I´ll take whatever
Just some light to give me power
Some strength to get through the night

Porcelain

Keep your head above the water
The chills she gave you are only there for a season
Then your on your own
Then your on your own
Don´t bother I´ve tried myself to bond with her
Your suitcase is your head
Your heart
And your humble reason
Stay put and clear and mow your lawn
Don´t think about committing treason
Keep your head above the water
Underneath it´s surface you won´t live for long.

When the night comes
You have your worries
Just like the rest of us
When the night comes
You have anxiety
How I wish I could tell you
Your not alone

Oh, you´ve been oh so fragile
Like porcelain on the edge of the ledge
Keeping it together
When the days have light
But your sunken eyes tells me otherwise
So here you are
Close beside me

When the night comes
You have your worries
Just like the rest of us
When the night comes
You have anxiety
How I wish I could tell you
Your not alone

Putting on cologne
Covering your tender skin
Still it seeps out bits and pieces of your hurt
Putting on a show
So no one will know
that your every step
Is an effort
Putting on cologne
Covering your tender skin
Still it seeps out bits and pieces of your hurt
Putting on a show
So no one will know
that your every step
Is an effort

When the night comes
You have your worries
Just like the rest of us
When the night comes
You have anxiety
How I wish I could tell you
Your not alone

Money

They grabbed it they´re trying take it all
It´s so expensive to breath
don´t let them make you crawl
You´ve got your dream hun
That thing your working so hard for
Don’t turn your back
Them little demons them little devilish things
Those weird beings that´s quite hard to distinguish

They want our money, they want our soul
Everything we’ve been working for
They want our money, they want our soul
Everything we’ve been working for

Let´s tear the walls down
Down to the ground
Let´s cut through the strings
That our self-proclaimed kings attached on us
Let´s tear the walls down
Down to the ground
Let´s sing from the top of our lungs
Free us, free us

They tell me to lay low close to the floor
And only to stick to what I know from before
So grab your shield friend and close the door
I´ll stay by your side that´s all you need to know.

Let´s tear the walls down
Down to the ground
Let´s cut through the strings
That out self-proclaimed kings attached on us
Let´s tear the walls down
Down to the ground
Let´s sing from the top of our lungs
Free us, free us

Let´s sing from the top of our lungs, from the top of our lungs
Let´s sing from the top of our lungs, from the top of our lungs
Let´s sing from the top of our lungs, from the top of our lungs
Let´s sing from the top of our lungs
Free us, free us

Talibé

He sits beside a candy store to rest his legs
His feet are sore, the days been long and the lucks been bad
No one had any gold to give away
The sun is sharp and could blind a man
The shadow is kind if you you´ve got your own piece of land
He´s just a child, a little boy who lives by the law of the jungle

It´s time to go
This place is borrowed
No candy can do
What sweetens the mood where fortune follows

Can do no candy for this boy.
Ai ai ai
Where did he go?
Ai ai ai
Where did he go?

He finds a shed, nearby the ocean
Just a place to stay for the night
He light a fire and cooks a chicken
Yes, a chicken he stole, he had to fight
He makes a bed of sticks and stones and some dried up chicken bones
He´s just a child, a little boy who lives by the law of the jungle

I saw him on new years eve
Running the streets, shedding some tears
His shoes were gone and the night was black
I was moved but covered in filigree
It said bang and the sky was lit
Sprinkle, sprinkle
Glamorous rocket
And just like that, he was gone, gone to whatever he calls home
And just like that, he was gone, gone to whatever he calls home.

Skit

At night in terror I loudly shriek
I wish for him to hurry come and get me
down here, down here, in the pit
While I´ll wait for the perfect unknown

I look up and I see the sky

burning blue

While I´m here

in the pit
down here in the pit
I need help to get out from the pit that I´m in

Happen

I wanna be where it happens
at the right time
the right place
no need for ass licking
just good timing baby
In this labyrinth
You gotta know her how not to get swallowed
down by the Crocodile Dundee sharp teeth
wanna bring you down

I wanna be where it happens

like a slave

to my passion

play me, raid me

do whatever to me

I see them collecting my medals
My passion
Carved in gold
Need one to get on
To hold on to

I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens

Down below
Don´t make a sound
It´s only for the people
Who built this ground
I already know I´m the odd one out
They built this ground
Built this ground

I wanna be where it happens
just lucky, like that
no need for ass licking
just good timing baby
Oh the nightlife
Might give you courage
but in the shadows your worst nightmares are hiding
wanna bring you down

I wanna be where it happens,
like a slave
to my passion
play me, raid me
do whatever to me

I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens
I wanna be where it happens

Down below
Don´t make a sound
It´s only for the people
Who built this ground
I already know I´m the odd one out
They built this ground
Built this ground

Down below
Don´t make a sound
It´s only for the people
Who built this ground
I already know I´m the odd one out
They built this ground
Built this ground

Break

I know we shouldn´t break up
I know you shouldn´t leave
Packing all your belongings
Who are we trying to deceive
Don´t you walk out that door now
We might never meet again
Troubles come troubles go
We used to work it out
on our own
But it´s what you´re gonna do
You´re not gonna be here
We talk and talk
talked it through
Soon you´ll disappear

Sunday morning you´ll be gone
That day my heart will turn into stone
Empty apartment without you home
Don´t you walk out that door
Sunday morning we´ve lost it all
Breakfast fun and our intwined souls
Empty bottles from before
Don´t you walk out that door

Looking at a picture of your sister
Your father and your mother
Wish I´d spent some more time with them
Why should I even bother
Don´t you walk out that door now
We might never meet again
Troubles come troubles go
We used to work it out on our own
But it´s what you´re gonna do
You´re not gonna be here

We talk and talk
Talked it through
Soon you´ll dissapear

Sunday morning you´ll be gone
That day my heart will turn into stone
Empty appartment without you home
Don´t you walk out that door
Sunday mornig we’ve lost it all
Breakfast fun and our intwined souls
Empty bottles from before
Don´t you walk out that door
Don´t you walk out that door
Don´t you walk out that door
Don´t you walk out that door

Pink & Silver

I just can´t get it down
On a piece of paper

She’s all around in my mind
No way I can erase her

What’s it to you
Your way out of line
What´s it to you
No need to be unkind

She’s getting way to close
Take a step back roller-coaster
Take me to the other side
For a moment
Ride with pride
No one ever needs to know
Oh, babe I want a second round, a second round,, a second round

I just can´t get it down
On a piece of paper

She’s all around in my mind
No way I can erase her

What’s it to you
Your way out of line
What´s it to you
No need to be unkind

She’s getting way to close
Take a step back roller-coaster
Take me to the other side
For a moment
Ride with pride
No one ever needs to know
Oh, babe I want a second round, a second round,, a second round

She’s getting way to close
Take a step back
Roller-coaster
No one ever needs to know
No one ever needs to know
She’s getting way to close
Take a step back
Roller-coaster
No one ever needs to know
No one ever needs to know

She’s getting way to close
Take a step back roller-coaster
Take me to the other side
For a moment
She’s getting way to close
Take a step back roller-coaster
Take me to the other side
For a moment
Ride with pride
No one ever needs to know
Oh, babe I want a second round, a second round a second round
A second round, a second round, a second round

Worries

One two, three, four tequilas
Runs down my throat like rivers of evils
Spinning around feeling young and all
But it´s not the same
Like before
Gold and green and purple and white
Are the colors for me to explain this night
Just around the corner we shared a glass of wine
Stumbling innocently through the town

No worries, no sorrow
There is no day after tomorrow

I once lived in that fragile old house
In the basement with him who owned my every night
Slept long in the mornings forgetting about school
Lost in those eyes so calm and cool blue

No worries, no sorrow
There is no day after tomorrow

I walked the streets of a billion prints
of hands and feets and torn up knees
and echoes of laughter from when we all met
In the city center to get a party set
Here I am dancing with the shadows of the past
The kebabs the fuck it all attitude brats
While snowflakes melt at the tip of my nose
I´m happy now, I suppose

No worries, no sorrow
There is no day after tomorrow
No worries, no sorrow
There is no day after tomorrow
No worries, no sorrow
There is no day after tomorrow

Never

Take a good look into my eyes
What do you see
Am I disguised disguised
Take a good look deep down inside
We´ve got all night, baby don´t rush it
I´m sure you´ve got your point of view
Something you think you saw and knew
Take a good look deep down inside
We’ve got time, baby dont rush it

Mmmmmm
Baby don´t rush it
Mmmmmmm
Baby don´t

What if i told you
I did some stuff
Some dark and out there shit
What if I told you I´ve seen some things
that would make your mind go

But I guess you´ll never know
No you´ll never ever know
´Cause I´ll never ever show
No you’ll never ever know
Never

So you´re still up for another drink
Ups there you go vomiting in the sink
I guess we both had a little to much
I can´t see anything now
Out of touch
Oh we drink then we go blind
Inhabitions
Feel my spine
Carry me on your strong long back
We´ve got all night, baby dont flush it

Mmmmm
Baby don´t rush it
Mmmmm
Baby don´t

What if I told you that I´m not really here
That I´m lost in space
Surreal
What if I told you I may bark as a dog
Purr like a pussy but inside I´m

But I guess you´ll never know
No you´ll never ever know
´Cause I´ll never ever show
No you’ll never ever know
Never
But I guess you´ll never know
No you´ll never ever know
´Cause I´ll never ever show
No you’ll never ever know
Never

Father

May the gods be with him now, despite the heads that came tumbling down
Oh, how I wish he could see me now somehow
Cut through his heaven or hell and see me now

Oh father, oh father
Oh fater, oh father

I am my fathers child and I have the courage of Joan Of Arc
How I wish he could see me now somehow for I have been a motherless child

Oh father, oh father
Oh father, oh father

I am my fathers child and I have the courage of Joan Of Arc
How I wish he could see me now somehow
Cut through his heaven or hell and see me now

Oh father, oh father
Oh father, oh father
