Bumble Bat 02:48
Hail! We're setting sail - wind at our tail - not for the frail. Yo! We're off you know - straight and narrow - not to and fro. Off you'll be - in the salty sun - everyone off with me! Off you'll be - in the salty sun - everyone off with me! Hey! Here not we stay - no time to lay - must make our way. Hie! This bat will fly - impish and spry - this is goodbye! Off you'll be... Everybody off! Everybody off! Everybody off!

Ich Warte 01:16
Horst du den Krach Ich warte - Ich warte Alle werden Gleich Ich warte - Ich warte.

Pack it up, baby, there's a front comin' through Where are all the children? Don't bother with the pictures or grandmother's ashes Let's go! Time to meet the neighbors They're your best friends now that the world is crumbling Don't you think that you're entitled And all will come if you believe? Don't you think that you deserve a better life than you've been given? But don't look at me - I've got what I need. Don't you think that you're entitled? This isn't filed under greed Don't you think that you deserve a better life than you've been given? But don't look at me - I've got what I need!

Dark Innards 06:12
Sun in her hair - red roses about us Day gives way to night and so it goes Out of our lair and step into moonlight Things never seem the same... Think about the reasons why you'd want to stay inside Think about the hopelessness you cover up with pride Think about regret and pain that never will subside Open up the demon box and let those bastards free Open up the journals that I never get to see Open up your heart and soul and give it all to me And can I still believe you? Of course, one more question: Can I take you out this Friday?
5.
The sun rose behind me - suddenly there's open space The road feels lonely now since it's clear that I'm no place I push and press and hope for something: Help? A word? A long embrace? The sun lifts higher still yet I can't stare into its face I'm tired of drying in the desert Sick of drowning in the sea So how long till I'm gone? How long till I'm gone?

Nanuet 01:28
Endless sea of pavement No bicycles or trees Flatter than a tombstone You still occupy my home Why can't you leave bad enough alone? Memories will languish On the hard drive in my skull I try - I can't erase them You still occupy...
7.
I am but a simple guy I work my eight and clean my plate I watch the news and get the clues all straight You are not so literal The words you twist to make a fist And flail about to punch me out But I can spot a mile away the lies that you say! You are the worst case in point You make us tense but your two cents Ain't worth a penny - or that many I can spot a mile away the total crap you say The faulty facts you spoke You one big fat joke!
8.
Open up your sorry shell Stale and wrapped in plastic This is how the world begins and ends Aim high! Listen to the words inside Beauty in disaster Empty wallet, empty bed and so... why not? If you're old and lost your way You can change your own fate People will appreciate the strong action You're coming home Watch the newscast You're not alone but you're the last
9.
Over there by the kitchen - can't ignore the sound Over there by the front door - can't ignore the wind Over there by the window - can't ignore the sights They take me from you Distract me from you...

World Cup 01:10
Don't take this the wrong way but I find it amusing That more than one billion humans Were fixated on the outcome Of an athletic event ultimately decided By a childish and pointless act of aggression And the tally of a series of quite rudimentary Yet seemingly random ball-kicking exercises.
11.
Empty and silent and giant in scope But up there's a grain of hope They try to listen but nary a word Don't you think it's absurd That the sky's not crashing in, sea's not rising? The deep dark ceiling is so surprising But the stars are drifting out - suns are burning Our big blue cradle is barely turning Why are we blinded by nothing we see? So who wove this tapestry That depicts a father that we're never with? Don't you think it's a myth That the sky's...
