Stuck on Love The first time he saw her All in white Hovering above the ground In a hot Chisinau night Colombian scents pervaded All eyes turned blear She dragged him round the corner And lit a cone of powdered cheer All our lives, all our lives Stuck on love The first time she saw him Floating in the waves The ocean painted Calme, luxe, volupté Beneath the murmuring pines Sleep was dear "The sun's a distant war" She whispered in his ear All our lives, all our lives Stuck on love

Unblues How to sing the blues when you're not feeling blue at all When blues is nothing but a promise of some exotic rise and fall When life is grand and love's alive and work is fun And yet there lures this dark light from a dying sun How to sing the blues when feeling blue is what you miss When gloom's a strange fruit and you hear the serpent's hiss When loss and fear appear as beacons in a joyful mind But when you look inside... all that you can find is We've conquered sea and earth and sky And still we don't know why We're born, we love, we doubt, we fight, we die How to sing the blues when your wife neither left nor died When all your problems culminate in comfort, health and light When skies are blue and faith is true and uncle Joe is kind But when you look inside... all that you can find is We've conquered sea and earth and sky And still we don't know why We're born, we love, we doubt, we fight, we die Your blowjob manual is well received in social mediacracy Hello peers! More lactovegan gluten tender touch functional cross fitzgerald big get by now get along Oh couch potatoe, coach potatoe your daily dose of advice is versus sin Confess confestivity let's party hard, party hard and kickstart your career! We've conquered sea and earth and sky And still we don't know why We're born, we love, we doubt, we fight, we die We've conquered sea and earth and sky And still we don't know why We're born, we love, we doubt, we fight, we die

Overspades Winter is coming The beasts are back in town Blades are clashing, heads are smashing Love and reason down Winter is coming The asshats claim the crown Sense is raped, all tongues are taped The ghetto's all around Winter is coming There's only one way out Before the ice eats us alive We'll dance and sing and shout Overspades! Winter is coming The grapes of wrath are foul Joy and lust give way to crusts Of fear and servile vows Winter is coming Preachers roam the streets Faith and hope return like zombies Clad in dusty sheets Winter is coming Whoever shelters rules Huddle in the domes of science, Capital and schools Overspades!

You Can't Beat the Beaten They say the end is near That we'll all disappear We could not care less 'Cause we're not living here We're living on the run Flyin' from sun to sun In a blaze of speed and dust Our downfall's long begun You can't beat the beaten, Sir A blood star's shining high in the Apocalyptic sky Horsemen, angels, trumpets, dragons The good old lullaby A toast to lamb and throne Hail the terrordrome What is to come has long been with us We're finally at home You can't beat the beaten, Sir Fishermen and costermongers, Brokers, whores, and zealous plonkers Panic with the bumblebees The turtles and the tartar trees And when the seals are broken We pick our winning token And on our satellites we cheer Delivered as bespoken! You can't beat the beaten, Sir

For the Sun I saw you rambling Down the tracks I saw you bleeding Face down with the rats I saw you sitting At the dock of the bay With a loaded pistol And your time flown away I saw you staring Into the devil's eyes Playin' a golden fiddle Backed by a swarm of flies I saw you diving In a submarine With the sons of Nemo To wherenever to be seen I saw you reaching For the sun You grabbed a strong beam And you made it burn

Muscle March Pump! Push! Pull! Lift! Squat! Row! Sweat! Suffer! Curl! Press! Breath! Tread! Grow! Fast! Flex! Pose! Muscle is what we need Contraction, movement, heat Life's a weight so pick it up and lift it Love's a super set you're never through it Can you hear the bar-bells ringing The Holy Pump is near A thousand iron angels singing Lift yourself above your fear! The Gods made muscle For you to enlarge All the pilgrims on the muscle march! All the pilgrims join the muscle march! Join the muscle!

Turtle Tattoo I'm not as desparate as you To get myself a turtle tattoo On a Friday afternoon When there's nothing else to do Than pierce your skin with chinks And fill em up with easy inks I'm not as bored as you I don't need a turtle tattoo To hell with the ink of the week I like my canvas bleak I'm not depressed like you To cheer me up with turtle tattoos Belated totem rites on the Last man's phantasites Flesh in quest of sense And an alibi suspense I'm not as bored as you I don't need a turtle tattoo To hell with the ink of the week I like my canvas bleak You want distraction We are here for action We are gladly sinking You're just wishful inking

Beasts and Bytes I don't want to party With humans any more Human company Is such a fucking bore Left wing, right wing, anarchy It's no use anyway As long as it is human It finally goes astray I just wanna hook up With the stones and sloths I long for coffee parties With algas, quartz and moths I'm entertained by cumuli Enlightened by the sand I'm thrilled by artworks, yes I am If just the artist's dead And should the reign of cyborgs dawn I'll be the first in line To pledge allegiance to their flag And kneel before their shrines I wanna go where the cold winds blow And wolves howl with machines Beasts and bytes, things and strings Our patchwork families Hubba Bubba, fusion bombs Big bubbles, no troubles Hooray for our ingenuity Now watch us turn to last year's rubble We think that we are different Well, that's the difference As for me I am happy To mingle with machines and ants

Stalked by Love The first time he saw her In the flickering lights The hunters blew their horns As he gripped her tight The first times she saw him Lost in dreams She said: "the tides will turn" As she kissed her schemes All our lives, all our lives Stalked by love
