Track Name: All Girl Summer Camp
My girls
are coming back.
In packs
they gather round.
Girls from San Antón.

Their clothes
were left behind.
Their shapes
along the lines.
Girls from San Antón.

Tons of lies to hold me down.
Kiss me hard to hold me down.

The sun
is licking down
their skins
of golden brown.
Girls from San Antón.

The beat
and the bass line.
Those pills
are kicking wild.
Girls from San Antón.

Tons of lies to hold me down.
Kiss me hard to hold me down.

Explosions in the sky,
red and white against the blue.
Coming back to me amplified in ecstasy.
Listen to that beat coming down from Tennessee.
Listen to the drone.
Beatles and the Rolling Stones.

The looks
and eye contact.
The move
to bite your mouth.
Girls from San Antón.

Tons of lies to hold me down.
Kiss me hard to hold me down.

Baby, can’t you see, this is all I ever dreamed.
Baby, I don’t know if it’s gonna last too long.
Baby, don’t you leave, won’t you cut some rug with me?
Playing by the sea those three guys from Tennessee.
Baby, don’t you leave, won’t you cut some rug with me?
Baby, don’t you leave, won’t you cut some rug with me?
Track Name: Feral Kids
A creature in a cage
watches the door.
The big green outside
commenced to thrust.

In a rift,
just a little rift,
gliding in,
cracking the stone.

Hiding in the dark,
the vine of the soul.
Visions and ghosts crossing the door.

Every face
Is covered in blue.
Twitching shapes
rolling the drums.

In every little drop
a galaxy explodes.
Flowing downstream.
A peace of my own.

Finding God
in the trees.
Falling down,
down on my knees.
Track Name: Bad Chemicals
I can't recall who was coming to town.
It was huge and we were sorted for supplies
I can't recall where the dolls came from
but our contact was a trustworthy guy.

It's so hard to explain.
I was telling Wayne:
“Well, you know,
it’s bad chemicals.”
“Bad chemicals.”
“Bad chemicals.”
“Running through my veins.”
“Messing with my brain
in some ways that you would never think about,
and it feels that you are turning inside out.”
“Wait, hang on, what were we just talking about?”
“Is it me or this guy is melting on the ground?”
“And it's all because of those bad chemicals”

And there we were, aw, the pride of the town.
We were tripping like a pack of rabid dogs.
Best regards from the marshmallow land.
At this point I can only say “I love you man”

It's so hard to explain.
I was telling Wayne:
“Aw, you know,
it’s bad chemicals.”
“Bad chemicals.”
“Bad chemicals.”
“Running through my veins.”
“Messing with my brain
in some ways that you would never think about,
and it feels that you are turning inside out.”
“Wait, hang on, what were we just talking about?”
“Is it me or this guy is melting on the ground?”

“Blame on bad chemicals”
“Bad chemicals”.
“Blame on bad chemicals”
“Bad chemicals”.
“Blame on bad chemicals”
“Bad chemicals”.
Track Name: Gauche Caviar
You often fantasize
on a youth you never had,
with wildcat student strikes
and the streets taken by tanks.
I'm no gauche caviar.
You are gonna see the light.
It's gonna tear you apart

Well, there is no need to hide
that you attended the best schools.
No contradiction though,
with your believes and what you do.
I'm no gauche caviar.
You are gonna see the light.
It's gonna tear you apart.

Take your bourgeois guilt
and push it down, down past your knees,
until you walk on it.

Blue collar rights are fine
but there is a life you are accustomed to.
You rise your fist and flirt
with the social democrats.
I'm no gauche caviar.
I'm no gauche caviar.
I'd rather die.
You are gonna see the light.
It's gonna tear you apart
Track Name: Leave Me Not
Now baby, if you leave,
I don’t know what I’ll do.
I wish I only knew.
I don’t know what I’ll do without you.

‘Cause we could work it out.
‘Cause we could make it right.
I want you to understand
I don’t know what I’ll do without you.

And if you break my heart
your karma is gonna die
in sorrow.
The love we used to have
was nothing you can steal
or borrow.

And if you break my heart
your karma is gonna die
in sorrow.
The love we used to have
was nothing you can steal
or borrow.

Now baby, if you leave,
I guess that we are through.
I wish you only knew.
I don’t know what I’ll do without you.
And though it was a mess
I always found it worth.
I wish you only knew.
I don’t know what I’ll do without you.

And if you break my heart
your karma is gonna die
in sorrow.
The love we used to have
was nothing you can steal
or borrow.

And if you break my heart
your karma is gonna die
in sorrow.
The love we used to have
was nothing you can steal
or borrow.

Oh baby, can’t you see?
What it would be of me tomorrow?
I wish you only knew
what it will be of me tomorrow.

But baby, can’t you see
what it would be of me tomorrow?
I wish you only knew
What it would be of it tomorrow?

‘Cause when you’re not around,
what it would be of me tomorrow?
Why don’t turn around
And tell me you’ll stay with me.
Track Name: Wild Cooties
Through the gate you
walk into
a sunny afternoon:
fields of cotton to cross.
Hear my call.
Dandelions
that I bring for you to blow.
Save the last one for me.

And all we wish is you and I
will be together till the end of time.
Save that wish for me.
Save that wish for me.

Feel the moonlight caressing
the surface of your skin.
Feel your dreams
in bloom.
Give me your hand and
I'll take you
to a place that no one knows.
Save that place for me.

It's so scary being so young.
We don't know what's going on.
Save your heart for me.
Save your heart for me.

And in twenty years from now
these memories will remain intact.
It was best time we ever had.

And when we'll come close to die
we will be happy when we are back
for we knew love, the real one.

Save your heart for me (for me).
Save your heart for me (for me).
Save your heart for me (for me).
Save your heart for me (for me).
Save your heart for me (for me).
Save your heart for me (for me).
Track Name: Bez
I am the key to the promised land,
the reaction’s catalyst.
I channel all energy around
into perfect harmony.
I give the band the consistency,
the coherence that it needs.
High as a kite. Glittering sky.
It’s a party atmosphere.

I am the key to the promised land.
I’m the new messiah.
Shakers in hand, dancing all around.
It’s the greatest party you will ever know.

I am the chosen one, Lord of the Rings.
I am the master of ceremonies,
a mystic man dancing in ecstasy.
And, yes, I have to do drugs. It’s my job.
Track Name: Fukushima, Mon Amour
They keep saying it’s the end of the world,
that the stars are aligned
and the sun is turning black.
And this time ain’t no mothership to arrive,
there’s nowhere to hide,
no place to go.

Since we are all dying.
Since we’re all gonna die.
Won’t you stay with me and hold me tight.

We are so far from the melting core
that it’ll still take some time
so keep calm and carry on.
No one in town believes in those stories,
especially when they have to hear them almost everyday.

Since we are all dying.
Since we’re all gonna die.
Won’t you stay with me and hold me tight.

Since we’re all dying.
Since we’re all gonna die.
Won’t you stay with me and hold me tight.

Since we are all dying.
Since we’re all gonna die.
Won’t you stay with me and hold me tight.

Since we are all dying.
Since we’re all gonna die.
Won’t you stay with me and hold me tight.

Kiss me away right into the sky, into the starry night.
Kiss me away right into the sky, into the starry night.
The world is gone and there’s nothing else to do.
Nothing else to do, aw-ah.

Kiss me away right into the sky, into the starry night.
Kiss me away right into the sky, into the starry night.
The world is gone and there’s nothing else to do.
Nothing else to do aw-ah.

‘Cause I feel much younger, younger,

And everytime you do that thing you do

It feels like yey, yeah.

Younger! Younger!

Track Name: Amateur Hour
Well, whatever happened to the fat of the land?
It went down a drain you just have called ‘subprime’.
Sorry, the one to blame is you.
Sorry, we know the truth.
We know the truth.

Tell me more stories. How it's gonna be?
Tell me what's the damage, tell me what's my share.
Sorry, it's one for me, ten for you.
No way, we're getting you.
We all know the truth.
The old dirty truth.

Sorry, but it's so hard to believe you.
You have been messing with wrong guys
and you would do it again.
No way. You're everything but our savior.
Don't dare to come with more stories.
'Cause you would do it again.

You did it again.
You messed with us
for the last time.
You did it again.
You messed with us.
For the last time messed with us.
For the last time.

Sorry, but it's so hard to believe you.
You have been messing with wrong guys
and you would do it again.
No way. You're everything but our savior.
Don't dare to come with more stories.
'Cause you would do it again.

You did it again.
You messed with us
for the last time.
You did it again.
You messed with us.
For the last time messed with us.
For the last time.

You did it again.
You messed with us
for the last time.
You did it again.
You messed with us.
For the last time messed with us.
For the last time.
Track Name: Slenderman
Slenderman

It comes around in the last hour,
when I’m trying to sleep.
And there’s no use to try to ignore it.
It’s there. I know it is.
I hear it laughing. I can’t see it. I can’t tell where it is.
It’s creeping closer. I can’t see it. I can’t tell where it is.

It’s touch feels so cold. Just like frozen bones.
My spine shivers and I… I can’t tell where it is.

It feels my fear. I think it likes it.
It’s not playing games.
It whispers words and hide behind them.
It’s getting in my head.
I hear it laughing. I can’t see it. I can’t tell where it is.
It’s creeping closer. I can’t see it. I can’t tell where it is.

It’s touch feels so cold. Just like frozen bones.
My spine shivers and I… I can’t tell where it is.

It’s touch feels so cold. Just like frozen bones.
My spine shivers and I… I can’t tell where it is.
