Digi-digi-digitonium

Did you ever think the day would come?

Digi-digi-digitonium

Did you ever think the day would come?

Digi-digi-digitonium

Did you ever think the day would come?

Digi-digi-digitonium

Legend has it it'll soon be sung
 

Lift it Up
Uther once was feeling strong

But weaker as time rages on

Uther I can hear you cryin'

Now

It's over

Will there be a next in line?

Visions of him fill the mind

Of Whiz bang wizard waiting long

Soon

The wait's over

 

Somebody pick it up

You got to pick it up

Somebody lift it up

You got to lift it up

Try pickin it up

You try liftin it

Try pickin it up

You try it! You try it!

 

Tell me once and future king

Can you hear the echoes ring

Of father calling from beyond

Son

Take over

 

In the wooded doom and gloom

Creatures stir below the moon

Flocking flying all around

Be still

They're coming now

 

(chorus)

 

Someone will come along

look for a sign

They may not yet be strong

But there still is time

 

(chorus)


 

Murder Face
Look at how he moves not leaving a trace

He's a real cool customer

Look at how he smiles

That murder face

He'll get you yea

 

He's got a job to do,  but he can't cling to the same machinery for two or three straight hours it's the truth

The smoke, it helps him cough, now the systems off, and he won't be phased or get engaged no matter what the cost

 

You tell him hey, you think this is a game? Now don't you feel ashamed?

whats inside your head?

Soon I will be dead

 

Talk talk talk!

Talking but your mind it wanders

Just how would it feel?

Ha ha

So funny up until its real

The laughter the screaming the laughter the -

 

Run run run!

Running but your legs are tired

Just how will it feel

Oh no

So frightening up until its real

The laughter the screaming

It's murder face

 

He stares right into me

Eyes lookin dead

They're watching they're watching

Listen to the man

Now hear what he says

He'll tell you, yea

 

He says thank you very much

Hope you're as pleasant to the touch as you are to my eyes I'm not surprised I'm moving into such confusion

Everybody shouts, and now my knife is coming out, it goes into your heart and tears apart your hatred and your doubt

If you only you could all have trusted me, it'd be different cant you see?

 

Here he comes

He's coming to get you

 

Double sorrows bubble

Gods and guns will get you

Oh you hope he lets you

 

Go!

 

Think think think

What's the last thing you remember?

Is it a white light coming heey!!

And just how did it feel?

The laughter the screaming

Remember remember how to

 

Talk talk talk!

Talking with your mind it wonders

Just how did it feel?

Doesn't seem like it was real

The laughter the screaming

The laughter the screaming


 

Nightswimming
night swimming

night swimming

 

now's the time to pantomime you're way to sleep

your dreams get goin'

life's a coin

 

(now flip it)

 

down around that roundabout you're counting sheep

you snooze along

life's a song

 

(now sing it)

 

you tread water long enough

to see your son and daughter strong and tough

 

(men and women)

you feel sonic splendor move

into your deep sub­conscious and your thoughts improve

 

(nightswimmin')

 

just float along

you’re goin’ where you've gone a thousand times it won't be wrong

 

(nightswimming)


 

idolize those vitalizing eyes and feet

the vision's clear

the movement's here

 

(you love it!)

 

nevermind that passing time, it's never been

all is none

none's a ton

 

(I feel it)

 

you've learned lessons time and time again

lessen the rest of those messages they can't be sent

you've failed the best of those tests and yes you can repent

for things you meant to do differently it never ends

 

(start over)

 

just float along

you’re goin’ where you've been a thousand times it won't be wrong

you've got the gist, yea

you've never missed a thing, now have you? are you feeling stronger?



 

Bijou Drains (The Birddog)
Bijou drains the bird dog

Before that dog bird drains bijou

You know it's gonna happen to someone sooner or later

Don't let it be you

 

(Bijou)

 

Gonna start a fire

Then I'll put it out

That's my one desire

That's what I'm, thats what im talkin' bout

Causing some problems

long as I'm the only one can solve 'em

Because I'm

Notorious in days of new

You gonna hear about him sooner or later and you best be sure that it's before he's comin' for you

 

(Bijou)

Bijou drains the bird dog

Before that dog bird drains bijou

You know it's gonna happen to someone sooner or later

Don't let it be you

 

(Bijou)

 

Gonna flood the city

Then I drain it out

Then they'll form a committee

To see, what it’s all about?

They can't get to the bottom

But I got to the top

Because I'm

 

Bijou drains, the bird dog

Notorious in days of new

You gonna hear about him sooner or later and you best be sure that it's before he's comin' for you

 

Bijou drains the bird dog

Before that dog bird drains bijou

You know it's gonna happen to someone sooner or later

Don't let it be you

EFN (European Festivity Nightmare)
Quaint old town

A bit run down

But the people populating are the type I like around

 

Cobblestone streets and

Bobble head thieves

But then wait I get a feeling that I'm not on my feet

 

ich will weißes pulver

I ain't no frankfurter

But wait, gimme some sugar baby

why do I feel like I just..

 

Crossed that sea with uncrossed T's

And frosty cold chills, old villains spitting out a number

 

Is it real or is it slumber?

I've been flying through the air tonight

I've got to get back over

I think I'm in a --

 

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I took a plane, oh yes I paid the fare, I had the

(time of my life but I had no business there)

Wish I could let it go, I wish I didn't care, I declare a

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I hopped a train, to take it anywhere, I swear I

(thought I was in the clear and really it's not fair)

Oh yes ive done it this time, it's time to get scared


 

Mixed up the route in my mind

And then I paid the fine

Nine hundred dollars and long distance callers calling

 

Extenuating circumstances

I'm deplaning in France

Is it getting better? Can't really tell a letter from a number

 

Is it real or is it slumber?

Nightswimming in the air - alright

I've got to get back over

I think I'm in a--

 

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I took a plane, oh yes I paid the fare, I had the

(time of my life but I had no business there)

Wish I could let it go, I wish I didn't care, I declare a

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I hopped a train, to take it anywhere, I swear I

(thought I was in the clear and really it's not fair)

Oh yes ive done it this time, it's time to get scared

 

It’s time to get scared

But you really aren’t there

You really aren’t there


 

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I took a plane, oh yes I paid the fare, I had the

(time of my life but I had no business there)

Wish I could let it go, I wish I didn't care, I declare a

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I hopped a train, to take it anywhere, I swear I

Oh yes i’ve done it this time, it's time to get scared

 

(European festivity nightmare)

Oh yes I took a plane, oh yes I paid the fare, I swear I

(got over the sea free and easy it’s not fair)

Oh yea you've got the brain, oh yea you've got the hair, I declare a

Digitonium
Pixelated avenues are spilling up into my shoes
It feels like they're swallowing me

 

Ones, zeros raining down exploding light cascading 'round
As far as the eye can see

 

It feels like the first time
but I close my eyes and know it isn't so

 

I always pick the worst time
to get out of my mind and let it show, oh no

 

(digi-digi-digitonium)

I say

(did'ya' ever think the day would come)

oh yea

(it's never over till it's overflowing)

I'm losing my control

(digi-digi-digitonium)

I say

(cut deep in the stoney one)

oh yea

(we won't stop till ya' memory’s done)

and still it's spinning round

 

round round round round


 

Never be the same again

Equation is my only friend

Solution, my enemy

 

Presti-digitonium

and now I'm not the only one

Multiplication complete

 

feel's like my mind is moving faster than ever before

I try to unwind it but it keeps wanting more and more

 

Fine Sir Ector, Motherboard

Please help me to remove the sword

So once and for all I can see

 

Rush into the future

find the time to rewind

take me back through evolution

never guess what you will find...

 

(digi-digi-digitonium)

 

(did'ya' ever think the day would come)

 

Zynth
through space and time you flyin
dimension multiplyin’

out for a quick vacation
and then disaster

you’re burnin up on fire
lost all control haywire

there is no explanation
what happens after?

Far from home
You’re spirit’s thrown
By gravity, you’re fallin’

Your journey beginning
Time is thinning
but never ends

Bending and twisting
Dimensions dripping

atomic clock, it’s ticking

Travel faster than light
From that great height
You descend

a place unfamiliar
breathe until you're

blending in it’s time now

To mimic what you see
Or this could be
The very end

From lights years away
you hear them say
Today is your tomorrow

Warped and distorted
you're transported
you ascend

now it’s up to you to crack the code
4 times 10 and 9 keys get you home

burning up you lost control
into a place unknown
Then we will all know the truth
It's what you're trained to do
But then all your work is done
Transformed and then you’re one
Many moons, it’s clear to you

What you must do

Turn on the converter
now juice the transformer

You can feel it getting warmer
You’re force is getting stronger

No time to stop now
You've learned it somehow
You're programmed to know

Gravity reversing
Your body is traversing
Through a thousand universes

There's no time to rehearse

This is the real thing now
Oh no kaboom! pow!

Your body explodes



King Computer
Random access meditation
Digital perfect second glance
Inter-kinetic demonstration
Central processor circumstance

Something happening in the mainframe
A battle to settle everything
Do not mistake it for a mere game

This names the one and only king

But he's the one you least expect (you shouldn't doubt it)
the zero you neglected (but you've clicked around him)
you pushed him to the side (soon that won't be happening)

never paid him any mind (you did not know he was the king)

(He'll soon be) the king of computer world

knock knock knocking on the door
(what is it that we're looking for?)
you thought you knew but now unclear
now what have we got here?

go step up right up to destiny
this may just unlock the key

take one last look around
now pull it from the ground

they never will expect it (but it's no disaster)
soon you'll be respected (start running faster)
they'll put you the test (they'll be sorry after)
he was always such a pest (soon he's the master)
wait!
this says that he's the king of computer world

it cannot be
just look right here it's plain to see
come and look (we've got a clue now)
it said it in the book (it's coming true now)
He can't be!
I am the king computer

You shouldn't doubt it
They still deny it
Watch them try it

Don't deny it
Let him try it

He really is the king
The king of computer world
He really is the king
The king of computer world
Bow down to your king
The king of computer world


 

lyrics for the ep 'stereochrome'

1. The Fader

 

2. Tiptoe Through the Crypto

I see this life flash before my eyes
a million suns tend to hypnotize
cactus make me crazy I realize
growin' helped to shrink me down to size
I realize


sun is beatin' down upon my shoulders
world keep spinning round as I get older, yea
move across the ground, towards the boulders
shaman tell me now, gimme some orders
I need some water


he said know not what you know
go only where you go


you gotta tiptoe through the crypto
set your mind countdown for liftoff
now when you're locked up by calypso
keep on tip toe'n thru the crypto


oh if you're king for a day it'll haunt you all your life
but you're the gimme gimme gimme gimme gimme that feelin' type
and then you don't give a damn If you kill the desert blue
but you can't be a man if you cannot tell the truth
tell me who are you?
because you know not what you know
you go only where I go


you gotta tiptoe through the crypto
set your mind countdown for liftoff
now when you're locked up by calypso
keep on tip toe'n thru the crypto

 

3. It's So Hard

there's almost nothing I wouldn't do
and there are many things I'd do for you
and I am ready now to come on through
it's true, just tell me to

 

'cause it's so hard for you baby, this I know
it's getting so hard for you lately that's for sure
it's getting so rough
and though you have come so far it isn't enough
you've got to work it out, lets see what you can do
i'm telling you to

 

'cause it's so hard for you baby, this I know
it's getting so hard for you lately that's for sure
yea it's so hard for you baby, this I know
so hard for you lately that's for sure

 

now I can promise you eventually
all of this pressure will be relieved
and when this happens girl we finally can sleep
but we got to keep on at it right now 

 

'cause it's hard for you baby, this I know
it's getting so hard for you lately that's for sure
yea it's so hard for you baby, this I know
so hard for you lately that's for sure

 

 

4. Gettin' a Little Closer

well I've been around this planet now a hundred times
and I've seen all that you can see (ooh ooh ooh)
though you'd never understand it I will tell you why (I'll tell you)
you've just got to, (yea) you need to believe
i've seen it (I've seen it)
an hour or two is all that it took
and i didn't even leave my front door (no no no)
i've got the power (yea) and you can come take a look
if you're feeling the need to explore (gimme more)


oh the sky, the water, the mountains
colors of green and blue (green and blue)
we can find the fountain
that will keep us alive oh yes I'm telling the truth I've seen it


gettin' a little closer everyday
gettin' a little closer all the time 


well now everybody's singing all these songs of love
and it keeps ringing out in my ears
just as sure as there are stars up in the sky above
i can dry away your tears
'cause I've been picking up those pieces of the love that we lost
and it reminds me of what I used to be
anything was possible no matter the cost
now there's a timeline we need to complete


now we all know there are some problems in the world these days
we all ask ourselves what can we do?
oh we can sing and play all of our fears away
and just hope that everybody's gonna join in too


because the sky, the water the mountains
they were created for me and for you (me and you)
we can find the fountain
at the top of the world oh yes I know we can do it I've seen it


gettin' a little closer everyday
gettin' a little closer all the time

2. Tired of Talkin’

 

oh the exception to the rule it excites me

i'm never hip to feeling safe and warm

yes the reflection in your drool it invites me

yes it's the calm right up until the storm

oh yes I'm tired of walkin'

TIRED OF TALKIN’  yea

i hear the forty­-three seconds of silence

preceded only by my second wind

i need that orderly beckoning to violence

that keeps the other beast from climbing in

oh yes I'm tired of walkin'

TIRED OF TALKIN’  yea

you never hear about the other side

the one that takes you there

you never get beyond that foolish pride

although you get inside my hair

i think I'm turning into twenty machines

i'm feeling quite under the weather

oh yes it's dirty when your mind is so clean

i fear i'm changing for the better

oh yes I'm tired of moving

no improving, no

the glass is full when it is upside down

i'm looking back into the louder

you only taste me when I'm making sounds

you only drink if it is powder

oh yes you're tired of blinking

tired of thinking, yea

i get a feeling from this purple breeze

that I will never be another

i've got plan to plant a seed

and i will talk amongst each other


3. Future 86
 

EIGHTY five years in my head

still alive and you're killing them dead

you said you liked it

you said you liked it you did

and still we move down the road

i think the city's still where I'll go

the FUTURE is coming now

seventeen times I told you

melody winds, unfolds you

the FUTURE is coming now

seventeen times I told you

melody winds

flip the gear right to reverse

did you hear? 

there's no time to rehearse

you said you liked it

you said you liked it you did

and still we move down the road

i think the city is where i’ll go


4. Club Foot

 

so inviting, so exciting

looks like you're walkin' on your ankles

yet you move so smooth across that floor

(to the right, to the left, you step)

you've got one hundred reasons why

you supply the right style and there's more

(two more, one right, one left)

you could be the boss (you know this)

we could be the one (i tell you)

you could be the two (you tell me)

never be the first one there

(ya never had a dream) in your life

(and though it doesn't seem quite right)

it's only ‘cause you move all night you're never sleeping

you never thought we'd be meeting again (oh no!)

but now they tell us we're the closest of friends (uh huh!)

i hate to feel just like a means to an end (no good!)

but take me there I've got a message to send 

CLUB FOOT!

so exciting, so inviting

i tell you never take for granted the things

that you've been granted from the start

(your mind, my love, mankind)

then have the guts to know you're stupid

and soon you'll see you're pretty smart

(it's true, have faith, we do)

you could be the boss (you know this)

we could be the one (i tell you)

you could be the two (you tell me)

never be the last one there 

(ya can't get a word in) edgewise

(but everybody heard it) two times!

(they’re waiting on the verdict)

that's fine but they will never hear it

i never thought i'd be sleeping again (oh no!)

but now they tell us that we're dreaming my friends (uh huh!)

i hate to feel just like a creep on a bender (no good!)

but i got the message, i'm returning to sender

CLUB FOOT!

moves so smooth yea

never sleeping

one right, one left

5. T.V.

 

well my mind it moves a mile a minute 

my heart is hurting' everyday

my soul is catching fire, no, i ain't no liar

listen to me when i say

that you fooled me one too many times

and you’ve crossed me twenty more

in a daze every night but I'm mourning the likes of you 

weaker than a month before

now these people they're talkin’ about me 

oh but they don't hear a word i say

and they never once told me why they think they know me

when they don't even know my name

and they've fooled me one too many times 

and they’ve crossed me plenty more

it's only right that i put up a fight 

because now its time to settle the score

i'm taking back the power with remote control buttons

on the hour, this is the time, i know it's sudden

but I'll never get it done unless I learn to have some fun 

without you muting me T.V., it's time to

(Bleep out) every single distraction

(Seek out) every critical action

(Freak out) i think that i’m crazy right through to the end

start it up again

now the television ain't that funny 

but beep beep he's got a mind of his own

he sits you in your chair, gets you halfway there 

but he never gets you home

and he's fooled me one too many times 

and he's crossed me a million more

it's a cool mint light but a foolish plight

for a freak tryin to get out that door

this'll be my one shot, so i better not miss it

and i've not got a whole lotta time to get with it

i'm an old dog soon i can't stay tuned 

i gotta set me free T.V. it's time to...

(bleep out) every single distraction

(seek out) every critical action

(freak out) i said i'll  be crazy right through to the end

start it up again

i know i'm better without you but you're a part of me

i'm so sorry to doubt you

can you find it in your heart to forgive me please T.V.

 

i need you in my life yea, every night and every day

i'll make it right, yea i promise you never again to stray

just take me back into your circuits i know we can make it work

because you’re just what i need T.V. you help me


(bleep out) all those things so improper

(keep out) all the pain yea you my doctor

(freak out) i think that i'll be crazy right through to the end

now start it up again


6. Physical Challenge

 

this is a PHYSICAL CHALLENGE

on your mark

get yourself set

just before

it is time to go

when you can't find the answer to 

one of life's many questions

you can always just opt into

one of my best suggestions

then they send it right back to you

you have two ways to win it

you can look deep inside your mind

or just race to the finish


7. E.Y.E. (Lookin’ Good)

 

if you are sure of anything then you have got a lot to bring to the table

if you're in need of something new, there is so much that you can do if you're able

but with such sticky, icky, tricky little lives

you'll get it done much more quickly through the eyes when you're LOOKIN’ GOOD

yea you LOOK so GOOD when you lie

yea you LOOK so GOOD to the E.Y.E.

when you are trying to progress and it all turns into a mess you're frustrated 

(don't you just hate it?)

when you've just about had enough, well then it's time to get tough and elated 

(oh yea now you've made it)

you needn’t utter but a flutter of the lips

that’s when your silence and reflection eclipse it's cuz you're LOOKIN’ GOOD

yea you LOOK so GOOD when you lie

yea you LOOK so GOOD to the E.Y.E.


8. X.Y.Z. (Feelin’ Tough)

 

arrogant artificial architects are all

behaving brilliantly berserk

carnivorous canary cutting corners cause

direction directly diverts

even eventual everlasting everythings

fall flat forget fullfilling fate

go-getters getting going, godless gremlins give

heavenly hell harmonic hate

communicate!

it's not too late!

row your boat, it's sinking

but there's still time!

illegitimate immitations innate in

jumping jack jill just jubilates

killing kinetic karma kindles kinder kids

long lost love leaking liberates

mischievous mermaids moving many million miles

never negating nothing no

outstandingly ordinary objects object

purposely pushing pinnacles

excommunicate, send them off

why? cuz it's too late

count down to zero 

your boat is sinking 

feelin' tough, let go, no thinking

quietly question questions quickly quantify

rewards regarding reality

such sweet sedation singing simple silent songs

time ticks to tweak triviality

under useful umbrellas uselessness unwinds

venomous victors villify

we worthless wounded wonks willingly wait while well wishers wish wishing wells were wise 

we won't win will we? well, why wait? we

X -

communicate

send them off

Y -

cuz it's too late

count down to 

Z - 

ro your boat is sinking 

feelin' tough let go no thinking


9. Snap Your Fingers

 

who do you love? (you babe)

baby how do you plead? (guilty)

tell me what do you want? (nothing)

s-wow! SNAP YOUR FINGERS!

swow! SNAP YOUR FINGERS singin’

hey-ey ey hey-ey-ey

how do you walk? (this way)

what do you need? (nothin')

talkin' to me now!

hey-ey ey hey-ey-ey

you’re talkin’ to me now


10. Electric Habitat

 

choose a side

life collides inside you

anywhere, anytime

change the tide

coincide with action

anyway, nevermind

startastic waves

i can't complain i'm feeling alright today

up in the clouds the creatures shouting out loud 

i hear them them shriek, squeek

one with the backdrop 

because i know when the last stop is here then it's

off with their heads off with their heads

what they said 

off with their heads off with their heads

what they said

hey you, stay tuned

pray you stay cool

if you’re one of them

are ya’? are ya’? are ya’? are ya’?

are ya one of them?

play with time

send sand seeping upward

bend the light

end the lie

close your eyes

open up your head and 

spill it out

fill your mind

fantastic blue

elastic facts color true feelings

ELECTRIC HABITAT

you're brain's healing

now how bout that?

insane dealings 

nowhere to go

except back down there below reason

HABITAT

it's hunting season

how bout that?

we can't believe it


11. Pickin’ Up (Where You Left Off)

 

it's a brand new day

so tell me what you feel inside

far away

someone's thinking you should feel alright

now give it away to somebody you don't know

then you'll hear them say, this is how we all go

you know we hurt ourselves in the places that we take love

we've got to put ourselves into the places that we make love

 

i'm PICKIN’ UP WHERE YOU LEFT OFF

‘cause this is how I feel 

let's make it real and I said I love

and why would I waste your time?

some would say

you're waiting just to see the light

but your brightest day

is coming at you on your darkest night

then you give it away to somebody you don't know

then you hear them say, this is how we all go

you know we hurt ourselves in the places where we take love

we've got to put ourselves into the places where we make love

LYRICS FOR THE ALBUM 'ZERBERT'

1. Smarter Than The Speaker

(smarter than the speaker, smarter than the speaker)

smarter than the speaker it gets weaker every time I freak it out
she's all about it, she's been screaming I've been meaning to say..

she says she loves me but she lives so far above me
now it's raining when it's sunny I've got bloody money through the day

moving up a level gimme a game in my mind
I've got time to just sit back and chase the cares away

now you hate me so just sit there and debate me
never really care, but act like that because I always know you will stay

(ooooohhh)

I'm coming up, I'm coming
I'm coming up, I'm coming

smarter than the speaker it gets weaker every time I freak it out. hey, hey, hey
smarter than the speaker it gets weaker every time i freak it out, hey, hey
smarter than the speaker it gets weaker every time I freak it out. hey, hey, hey
smarter than the speaker it gets weaker every time i freak it out, hey, hey

(ooooooohh)

I'm coming up, I'm coming
I'm coming up, I'm coming


2. Gremlins

Am I talking to someone?
You know I cannot see
It's all been undone
Man it moves so quickly
Feelin' crazy
Please don't ask me why
Don't act so shady
Man you look awfully high

Cuz you don't seem so sure
They're turned around now
Walkin' out that door

Ooooh
Please don't ask me why I'm singin'
Ooooh

Welcome to the party
You can come for free
Just bring your body
This is you and me

You know I cannot see
It's all been undone
Man it moves so quickly
Feelin' crazy
Please don't ask me why
Don't act so shady
Man you look awfully high
Are you talking to someone?
Cuz you don't seem so sure

You're mistake was when you thought you were alive because you've never been

4. The Rules

Oh oh oh
you said those were the rules
my babe

Hippy chick
comes with it quick
oh yes she moves in all directions

She leaves a note
that she wrote
without love but with affection

Oh oh oh
you said those were the rules
my babe

famous hang with famous
kids admire
quoted often
yet uninspired

make it stick
seems like a joke
jack be quick
jack be mixed with coke

(we flyin' high)

action is reaction to distraction you see
don't waste one waking moment on conventionality

(we flyin' high, high, high, high, high)

you learned the rules
now let them go
follow the directions you are programmed to know

(let's go!)

Oh oh oh
you said those were the rules
my babe

50 miles
takes a while
when you move in all directions

(heyy)

missed the show
missed the blow
but we made all the connections

Oh oh oh
you said those were the rules
uh huh
uh huh
uh huh
uh huh

the total is now equal to each one of it's parts
every time you finish you are back at the start
sometimes the sugar is not so sweet
hearin' sirens, seeing lights out on this one way street

action is reaction to distraction you see
don't waste one waking moment on conventionality
you learned the rules
now let them go
follow the directions you are programmed to know

(let's go!)


5. Getting Closer

(oooohh)

Well i've been around this planet now a hundred times
and I've seen all that you can see (ooh ooh ooh)
Though you'd never understand it I will tell you why (I'll tell you)
You just got to, (yea) you need to believe
I've seen it (I've seen it)

An hour or two is all that it took
and i didn't even leave my front door (no no no)
I've got the power (yea) and you can come take a look
If you're feeling the need to explore (gimme more) 

Oh the sky, the water the mountains
colors of green and blue (green and blue)
we can find the fountain
that will keep us alive oh yes I'm telling the truth I've seen it

gettin' a little closer everyday
getting' a little closer all the time

Well now everybody's singing all these songs of love
and it keeps ringing out in my ears
Oh just as sure as there are stars up in the sky above
I can dry away your tears

Cuz i've been picking up the pieces of the love that we lost
and it reminds me of what I used to be
anything was possible no matter the cost
now there's a timeline we need to complete

Now we all know there are some problems in the world these days
we all ask ourselves what can we do?
ooh we can sing and play all of our cares away and just hope that everybody's gonna join in too

Because the sky, the water the mountains
were created for me and for you (me and you)
We can find the fountain
at the top of the world o yes I know we can do it I've seen it

gettin' a little closer everyday
gettin' a little closer all the time


6. Chatte Lunatique

Chatte Lunatique

Chatte la-la-la-lunatique

It's a little scary when you see the sign
You picture it hairy and quite mean inside your mind
So try your luck, and open the gate
You tempt the beast, and now you're tempting fate, singin'

Chatte La-la-la-lunatique
Chatte Lunatique

C'est un peu effrayant quand vous voyez le panneau
Vous l'imaginez tout poilu and vraiment mauvais
(dans vos tete)
Bonne chance si vous ouvrez le portail
Tentez la bete, et vous tentez
(le destin)

Chatte Lunatique
Chatte la-la-la-lunatique


7. The Toolbelt

I take the toolbelt out tonight
Time to tune and tweak twelve trillion troubles it ain't right
Can't catch a wink night after night
Forget those bugs I've got some bedsharks and they bite

I'm like a chicken, got my head chopped off
You're like a dog, you're just chasing your own tail
You get the story from the paper
I'm in a hurry just to keep them off my trail

Ooooh
Look what they've done to me man
Ooooh
I can hardly believe it
Ooooh
Look what they've done to me man
Ooooh
I can hardly believe it

Oh my god! Look at my brains out on the floor!
(Oh my god, look at my brains out on the floor)
Can anybody tell me where in the world I gotta go if I'm lookin' to
find me some more?
(hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

My god! Everybody get down on the floor
(Oh my god, everybody get down on the floor)
I tell you it's a serious thing, if you're delirious, sing!
I gotta get around these gremlins and material things
(hey hey hey hey hey)

Oh my god! Look at my brains out on the floor!
(Oh my god, look at my brains out on the floor)
Can anybody tell me where in the world I gotta go if I'm lookin' to
find me some more?
(hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

My god! Everybody get down on the floor
(Oh my god)
I tell you it's a serious thing, if you're delirious, sing!
I gotta get around these gremlins and material things
(oh oh oh ooohhh)

I take a look round every corner
I take a glance down every hall
Before she speaks I try to warn her
All she's gonna do is back us up against a wall

She looks at me like I am crazy
I turn around and look away
Now my vision's gettin' hazy
What can I do when there's nothing left to say? 
except for

Ooooh
Look what they've done to me man
Ooooh
I can hardly believe it
Ooooh
Look what they've done to me man
Ooooh
I just can't believe that

Oh my god! Look at my brains out on the floor!
(Oh my god, look at my brains out on the floor)
Can anybody tell me where in the world I gotta go if I'm lookin' to
find me some more?
(hey, hey, hey, hey, hey)

My god! Everybody get down on the floor
(Oh my god, everybody get down on the floor)
I tell you it's a serious thing, if you're delirious, sing!
I gotta get around these gremlins and material things
(hey hey hey hey hey)

Oh my god! Look at my brains out on the floor!
(Oh my god)
Can anybody tell me where in the world I gotta go if I'm lookin' to
find me some more?
(oh oh oh ooohhh)

My god! Everybody get down on the floor
(Oh my god)
I tell you it's a serious thing, if you're delirious sing
I gotta get around these gremlins and material things
(oh oh oh ooohhh)


8. Lookin' Tough, Feelin' Good

Turn outside the inside-out-cry-baby
Now outshout the out crowd ouch our lady
Don't get pissed you're twisted and misunderstood
Just get tough you look it and you're feelin you're feelin good

Get out the womb
Cut the chord

Test what's next and guess all the best you can be
Just expect the rest to connect what you see
Twist and turn the worm squirms and burns through the wood
Just get tough you look it your heads reelin', you're bed's feelin good

Get out the womb
Cut the chord
snip, snip

uh oh!

LYRICS FOR THE ALBUM 'TURKUAZ'

1. The Mountain

Out of my bed there's a cloud in my head
Everything seems like a joke
The fog has turned to smoke
Bit dehydrated my memory's faded
I can't quite recall
What went down at all

What was I looking for?
Remind me once again
I know it had something to do with a celebration
Now the mood is setting in
Fill the cup
Drink it up
Till it knocks you out
Then you wake
Now it's time to shake it off
Keep climbing
Keep climbing the mountain

This is the way that we go through the day
Doesn't phase me one bit
I've been taught never to quit
The mountain is tall
If I don't look down then I wont fall
Back to the same old spot
Keep climbing to the top

No reason to get excited
I suppose this could be true
But it's feeling pretty good to me
How does it feel to you?
Fill the cup
Drink it up
Till it knocks you out
Then you wake
Now its time to shake it off
Keep climbing
Keep climbing the mountain 

What was I looking for?
Remind me once again
I know it had something to do with a celebration
Now the mood is setting in
Fill the cup
Drink it up
Till it knocks you out
Then you wake
Now it's time to shake it off
Keep climbing
Keep climbing the mountain

Get your things

Pack your clothes

Put up your feet

Sit back relax

In your seat

Crazy man

Drum in hand

Always wants to start a band

Loves to move across the land

We're moving down the road

Hey-ey-ey………



4. 20 Dollar Bill


Look at how they come and how they go

See these people dance across the floor

20 dollar bill oh man I gotta spill my guts

Can you do the job like everyday

It's legend to do but can be shady to say

That if the level's too high, still the vibe is okay I said

Oh no man this is strange

I'm home but I'm living on the shooting range

Someone's got to stay and something's gotta change

Feeling like my body's always ready

And my mind thinks it's a shame it's a shame it's a shame

(Look at how they come and how they go

See these people dance across the floor

Look at how they come and how they go

See these people dance across the floor)

5. Desert Island

 

We could sail away to a desert island
we could sail away, sail away
sail away to a desert island
sail away, sail away

You seem kinda itchy man, whacha been doin'?
Things sound kinda glitchy your life is in ruins
the shoe fits so wear it, it hurts the foot growin'
something smells good man, whacha been brewin?

Is it dark out yet? Okay now to drink
did the sun come up and can I even think about hittin' the sheets yet?
Nope... can't catch a wink
passed out like a sick day... gone in a blink say..

(crazy)

One time too many
twice too few
you've got some pennies
I put em' in a bank account for me and you I said

We could sail away to a desert island
Sail away

Is it dark out yet? Okay now to drink
did the sun come up and can I even think about hittin' the sheets yet?
Nope... can't catch a wink
passed out like a sick day... gone in a blink say..

One time too many
twice too few
you've got some pennies
put em' in a bank account for me and you I said

Or we could sail away to a desert island
or we could sail away to a desert island
or we could sail away to a desert island
(we could sail away, we could sail away, we could sail away....)


6. Back to Normal

Baa doo ba, doo ba, be doo be doo
Baa doo ba, doo ba

She's talking pretty loud
There's a trace of a doubt in my mind
Should I leave the twisted fantasy behind
She said I need it now
I am sweet don't be sour
Keep it coming coming out
I will be there to receive I said

(oooooohhh)

What do I care?
See the wind in her hair
After a while if I stare
I can see she's the one who…
Don't mean a thing
In the morning I will sing
In the shower 12 hours
I'm going back to normal again

Early in the morning
I receive a warning
My brain is still yawning
My body's got to go
It's no laughing matter
My teeth start to chatter
It's cold but I would rather be playing in the snow I said

(ooooohh)

What do I care?
See the wind in her hair
After a while if I stare
I can see she's the one who…
Don't mean a thing
In the morning I will sing
In the shower 12 hours
I'm going back to normal again

(aaaaaahh)

What do I care?
See the wind in her hair
After a while if I stare
I can see she's the one who…
Don't mean a thing
In the morning I will sing
In the shower 12 hours
I'm going back to normal again


7. Monkey Fingers

(Heeeeyyy)

From the top of the tree
Everything looks fine to me
Ive got room and board for free
So what could go wrong?
If I fall asleep
Then an enemy may creep
If I rise then he'll retreat
This is what's been going on, I said

Monkey fingers
Gonna snap you into place
Monkey fingers
Gonna slap you in the face
Monkey fingers
Gonna snap you into place

Jungle's pretty warm
In the ocean there's a storm
Yes I'm feeling pretty torn
Perhaps the city's where I'll go
This is how I feel
Let's make a deal, I said

Monkey fingers
Gonna snap you into place
Monkey fingers
Gonna slap you in the face
Monkey fingers
Counting up to ten
Monkey fingers
Let's count down again

hey hey hey hey hey

Monkey fingers
Gonna snap you into place
Monkey fingers
Gonna slap you in the face
Monkey fingers
Counting up to ten
Monkey fingers
Let's count down again
Monkey Fingers 

ON THE RUN

On the run

Oh no I can't stop moving

Never done

It never stops

 

On the run

I find the madness soothing

Never done

I never stop

 

I will not deceive you this time

I'm about to leave you alone

'Cause I do not believe your lies

And I can't take it no more

 

I'd been circling 'round

On a dead end street

Not sure what I had found

But I was sure I had to leave

 

On the run

Oh no I can't stop movin'

Never done

It never stops

 

On the run

I find the madness soothing

Never done I never stop

 

I'll never trust somebody again

Everything they say is a lie

And I don't need no stupid friends

To make me feel that I am alive

 

I don't care what people say

They don't know the truth about me

I'll live to see another day

I live to know that I am free

 

You think I'm running scared

You think I'm running blind

But I am running for something

And I don't look behind

 

Bleed a little thicker when you ride alone

 

On the run

Oh no I can't stop movin'

Never done

Can't stop

 

On the run

I find the madness soothing

Never done

I never stop
