Track Name: A Ridiculous Mind
You can wait
if you say
take my place

Why you may
not afraid
for today

Everyone you know
Anywhere you go
All the saints you bribe
You don’t even know why

A ridiculous mind
Certainly of one kind
Can you render this
Can you fail me in this

You will never be the one
to end up just like a renegade
Look around and ask your self
would I be on your side again

And every day I look
into your fire-driven soul
And I wonder man I wonder
how could you ever sink so low

Even so
aiming low
for the road
off you go

You and me
constantly
I can’t see
through the trees
Track Name: Mean Proportional
Suddenly there was a freak show within
And I was there while I was winning
And then all over and then the end
And then the message a cheating hand

And all the planets approaching me
And they were dying to meet me
This reddish fella he grabbed my hand
and I was thinking peculiar land

He said I know ya
I'm from above
But I'm not sure
Are you in love

I said in love is a girl you cannot get
A kiss on the cheek and a heated head
Oh Lord have mercy for the hungry bait
Adultery is not a chosen fate

Stop pushing me stop beating me witch
You stupid, reddish, freakin' son of a bitch
Track Name: A Contemporary Classic
This is a conference
of the civilized world
I can’t believe it
Hail to the minister
of development aid
Livin' his own lie

Don't like your attitude
Getting kicks outta being rude
Acting pretty, being a bitch

Missing the message
but I don't care
Being a gal
Living quite fair
Just don't look up
Don't allow me
And don't be stressed
to make you all right
Track Name: Leave Me Wary
Head down gotta make it fast
and I got no time to set
Don't want you in my way

And every one'll keep on starin'
They're a mob they leave me wary
I'd rather be a shade

I will never be alone
you will follow when I go
You're always in my head

Whenever you're running out
of alibis all too foul
you're mad enough to crack

Don't know you
but you used to be all right

A real one
Yeah I want you in my life

Still on the verge of getting violent and wrong
The love has gone and all the worst has yet to come
The morning feels already empty and gone
The mesmerizing scent of bodies here at dawn

Now I am a wrong design
It shall never redefine
I'm so tired and frail

Would you hold me in your arms
if you knew I was at large
I am merely insane

You're at me
You want me too deranged

You rob me
of my precious quality

Still on the verge of getting violent and wrong
The love has gone and all the worst has yet to come
The morning feels already empty and gone
The mesmerizing scent of bodies here at dawn

My conscience clear but I am walking in shame
My mind is bursting and my eyes are full of rain
The One he called me for his devilish play
And all the while I keep on guessing what I'll say

If you come by a lonely man
Keep off your way my only friend

Look up fall down, your will is mine
So brave, you'll get all recognized
Track Name: Screwdriver Crimes
You left my right
Break this vile crime
Can't breathe my life
Save me this time

Leave me here now
Let me roam
Feel it give in
Coming home

Mean one you came
Meet my ill fate

Leave me here now
Let me roam
Feel it give in
Coming home

I will be under and you will be fine
Can't stand the feeling of life fleeting by
Never seen hatred like this in one's eyes
Why did you choose me for your lonely cry

Quiet remains
Gone with the pain
Free as a flake
Meet me today

Carry on, marry on
Lead me all astray
Let me off, wrap me up,
Throw me all away

Pray for the night
Leave me behind

You got me wrong
You don't belong
You got no home

You're all in your own
You don't really know
You're only alone
Track Name: Blind Pig Blues
Let me in please Charlie
no one here but me
I'm speaking easy
give me a pint of stingaree

Pour me out some white mule
pour me out some sandy rye
I don't want no bug juice
that old stuff is too darn high

Liquor darling liquor
give me liquor until I die
And I'm always happy
when I've got my liquor nigh

I'm kind of worried
got something on my mind
That's why I drink my whiskey
make my faro wait behind

Wasted in the sewer
living like a crazy rat
Liquor in my body
ugliness inside my head
Track Name: Never Underestimate The Fool
Another time
I would love you to be mine
I'd never ask you why
is it all in vain?

Have you ever lived
a life with the man you're with
I hate to see you in
this ordinary myth

Now you're staring at me
and I feel like I could be
Another way to be free
from a loveless enemy

You're a lot like me
You just wait in misery
So you'd rather be
Feeding on the nearest treat

Never underestimate the fool
Keep it coming right in to the gloom
No escaping I'll always be estranged
Don't wanna live a life of raging hate

You are riding my heart
Keep me off the right wrong
Cutting useless flowers
for another one

Now you're staring at me
and I feel like I could be
Another way to be free
from a loveless enemy

You're a lot like me
You just wait in misery
So you'd rather be
Feeding on the nearest treat

Of all the days I really was in you
So many signs of a manic dream come true
The less you know the more you will agree
Let us be for all eternity
Track Name: Maddening Mockery
Remember the days when we were amazed
by the maddening mockery
The better part of it is all that matters
and the rest is history

The modern lover never got his love
while he was all around the world
he always wondered why he got no love
but there just were no modern girls

So many nights that I wanted me to be on your side
Your love is mine gather all the time for a mighty cry

People what you’re going through
Isn’t all that sits and lies

Oh you ought to know
you're coming back too

It suits you all the same
I cannot keep you waiting

You got it made
you said

The sun is hot but I feel all frozen
by the way you move your head
I cannot stand your raw and ready brain
this misery will kill my death

Expectation and a pretty face
are just some reasons to be worse
I agree to all that you are bragging about
you are a true and honest jerk

What is it for, never wrong again, it will be all right
Better retire, gonna make it happen, gonna make it nice

People what you’re going through
Isn’t all that sits and lies

Oh you ought to know
you're coming back too

It suits you all the same
I cannot keep you waiting

You got it made
you said

Seed of regret
Raving in a wreck
Be well in there
Track Name: Haar Ogen Of De Goed Gebruikte Wensvorm
Ogen wentelen lichten
lichten laaien landen
in de verte brandt een vuur
mij
vlamt een gloed
mij
en stil trilt het onbekende
sterrewachten wachten mij
dat ik reize

Ik vat nooit de vlam van het vuur in de verte
