Lyrics

Reconstrucdead
When the fever burns your brain
When your heart has got a name
And you long for generous days
You want a spring in your walk and a smile on your face..
Another day inside the pearl
You could have screamed; leaving this world
You laugh'n'joke without a care
And bear a depression you can see from the air..

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead

A tambourine rings in my blood
The circus' rolling'n'the cage is locked..
So where's the light - a match that flares
- The pot at the end of the rainbow's where
Pick your nose as you pick your friends
Or spend a life in fear of the end
To tell a nodding shrink won't help
- So I say to myself: Hey, get a hold on yourself!

Ride the tail of rhyme
Break the legs of time
- Snap it's spine..
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
A monument to power, standing, but on reconstrucdead toes
At my feet there's a plate I haven't read..
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead, reconstrucdead..

My eyes are blind My mind is numb
But my ears begin to hear - to hear the growing hum
Like a statue, jealous of the rush hour
I'm reconstrucdead like a monument, a monument to power
As a statue wearing complicated clothes
Standing high up as a tower now, but still the cracks will - yeah
The cracks will show
A lifetime of frustration - the things that I can't get
Apart from that - then I'll be reconstrucdead
Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead Reconstrucdead
Written In Water
Set out on a laughless day
Like a troupe of clowns
Peekin' out of a show man's car
Through cabbage town...
You feel a cold wind blow
Through your open mind
The end is about to start
So you shut it hard...
As the weather girl predicts:
Conducting the clouds with her stick
The day will be clear'n'funny
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Down the crater of your ear

As long as the flavor lasts
In c-h-e-w-i-n-g gum
As long as we float around
This golf ball sun...
The light to replace the day
Is ten shades of gray
A kiss removes the skin
Shows you where you've been
Under the ultra-violet ray
A rule every fool obeys
Hold up your name in fire
- Before it rains...

Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear..
Written in water
Yeah, it's bound to disappear
Down-the-velvet-crater-of-your-ee-aa-rrr

Yeah, written in water
It's bound to disappear
Written in water
Written on a wave of fear
Written in water
It's bound to disappear
Down the velvet crater of your ear
Iiiiiiiiiiiihhjairr!... Written in water
Helpyourselfish
I've been bounced around
But I'm still standing up
I've been so far down
That my ears they popped
And it was then I knew
By all the wrongs you do
- That if you can't be good - Be careful!
To achieve your happiness
On this terrestial ball..
Gotta have a clean conscience
But even better: None at all!!
But if you can't be good - Be careful yeah!

It's when a pat on the back becomes a slap in your face now..
Don't look back just helpyourselfish.
And when your friends begin to loose their way..
Don't look back just helpyourselfish..
Yeah, it's easy to be hard, if we got everything now
Don't look back just helpyourselfish...
Through the revolving door on someone elses push
Yeah it's easy to be hard Easy to be hard...

In between those who've got it made
- And those who've got to wait..
Yeah, I'll offer you a chair
But when you sit down - It isn't there!
Always quick to lend a hand
Sorry - Not today I can't...
But I'm always there when I need you - yeah!

It's when a pat on the back becomes a slap in your face now..
Don't look back just helpyourselfish.
And when your friends begin to loose their way..
Don't look back just helpyourselfish..
Yeah, it's easy to be hard, if we got everything now
Don't look back just helpyourselfish...
Through the revolving door on someone elses push
Yeah it's easy to be hard Easy to be hard...
Yeah, when a pat on the back becomes a slap in your face now
And when your friends begin to loose their way
Don't look back - just helpyourselfish
Through the revolving door on someone elses push
Yeah, it's easy to be hard Yeah, yeah easy to be hard...
Soulbender
I've got a painters eye
And a skilled musicians ears
And I'm silent - in 7 languages
And I've got all my family's fears...
What lives inside you?
Yeah, what stuffs your skin??
- Someone elses memory..
How come I never hear what I wanna hear
How come I never see what I wanna see...
The choice is small If there's choice at all
But I'm holding on as if I'm going to fall
Now I know how it feels
- To be ragged and wild
-- Whipped like a stepchild
Feel the soulbender
Fear's knocking at your skin
Feel the soulbender
Just to see if any soul is in..

When the wounds begin to heal
Whether one want them to or not
So far between a while well spent
And the time spent keepin' up...
Make one devoted
And settle like a bird
Forgive and try not to hurt
Don't take your garbage
- Anywhere but out..
Before the pup in your heart
- Becomes a dog in your mind
And it's licking my brains...
Sucking reason out
It will be cooking my head
With the lid on tight
You know how it feels:
- 'Till I'm ragged and wild
Whipped like a stepchild
Feel the soulbender - Fear's knocking at your skin
Feel the soulbender - Just to see if any soul is in..
Feel the soulbender - Fear's knocking at your skin
Feel the soulbender - Bend you - Break you..

With empty eyes; Blank, like two wet stones
In search for a home; In search for a soul
Handed down on the family network
Learning how it works... - To be a jerk..
Feel the soulbender...
Unowned
I found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises, than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
Where there's a will; there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned..
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
Then you're proved, that is's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man, not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat, who's lost his oars..

Going through your things; but nothing's new
A wild imagination with the tightest view...
Our voodoo dolls are full of holes
- You learned by going, where you had to go
Where there's will, there's a won't..
From I to "we" - but still unowned
Read it between the lies
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..
Yeah, yeah..
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah! You're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars..

'Found a way of payin' off old debts
Always make more promises than you can break
An argument that calls for more
Ends with a cold message on the freezer's door
When someone's asking someone something
And then you're proved that it's a dumb thing
Yeah, you're telling a drowning man - not to grab for straws
I'm a kid in a rowboat who's lost his oars...
Candid
This is the lazy quiz
And you got all the time there is
We'll spend some time on greed'n'wealth
And then some on mental-health...
No need to sweat or bite your lips..
No grand prize, cars or trips
It's knowing when to quit...
If it wasn't for me and the likes of me
And what I choose to do..
If you could tell, I'd like to know
Why you've become:
So candid unreserved'n'true
I'd rather you were I, than I were you
Candid
As if you held the truth
Sometimes honesty
Will kill the fool

Now, my word no one relies on
Never said a foolish thing..
Then again... never said a wise one
It is never what you think - it's knowing when to quit..
If it wasn't for me and the likes of me
And what I choose to do..
What the hell I'd like to know
Why you've become:
So candid unreserved'n'true
I'd rather you were I, than I were you
So candid
As if you held the truth
Sometimes honesty will kill the fool
So candid unreserved'n'true
Yeah, I'd rather you were I, than I were you, yeaah
Candid...
But you don't know me that well.!!
Blood In/Out
Yeah, I've changed but I kept my name
To retell a joke, it won't be the same
My eyes burn new black hollow holes
My fate's revealed my future's told
Mercurychrome..
Waitin', when the wound's scraped raw
Bones...
The biggest stitches that you ever wore
Blood in blood out Feel your past unwind
Blood in blood out Through sweat'n'hair
Blood in blood out My anorexic mind
Blood in blood out Gaspin' for air

I'm all right, I'm habituated
So I tip my hand, afraid to play it..
And then my ribs goes twang
- And off they fly..
It wasn't meant for human eyes
Let it go...
Yeah, another life, another form
Slow...
But, nothing happens when it comes along
Blood in blood out Feel your past unwind
Blood in blood out Through sweat'n'hair
Blood in blood out My anorexic mind
Blood in blood out Gaspin' for air

Check my heart'n'respiration
I feel I look a little pale
I just missed another station
- I'm stepping off the carousel...
Blood in blood out...
Prayin' To A God
Yeah, I know I'm in trouble
A case of the unkindest kind
But I resent being reminded
About what's already on my mind
When hope beats high
And I wake up with a sleepy grin
The dream I fell asleep to
Just blew up; I know I never win..
I'm prayin' to a God who always says..
I'm prayin' to a God who always says: No!
I'm down on my knees for crying out low..
I'm prayin' to a God that always says: No!!
The light at the end of the tunnel
Is nothing but the burglar alarm
Praying to a God that always says
I'm prayin' to a God that always says: No!

As if each drop of rain is tryin' to get at me
Yeah, the joke's over
And it feels as though my heart's empty
And I can't sleep from hearing
All the things I never said..
Because the dream I fell asleep to;
Is just a cloud above my head
I'm prayin' to a God who always says..
I'm prayin' to a God who always says: No!
I'm down on my knees for crying out low..
The light at the end of the tunnel
Is nothing but the burglar alarm
Praying to a God that always says
- I'm prayin' to a God that always says: No!

Yeah, I know, like a shadow when the sun is gone
And it seems the things I wait for never comes
I need someone to believe in me
Yeah, I need someone to throw blue sky at me
Praying to a God who always says
I'm prayin' to a God who always says: No!
Praying to a God who always says
Praying to a God that always says
I'm prayin' to a God who always says: No!!
Praying to a God who always says
Yeah, to a God that always says: No!
Yeah, I'm down on my knees for crying out low
I'm prayin' to a God that always says: No!!
The light at the end of the tunnel
Is nothing but the burglar alarm..
The God who always says: No!
To the God who always says: No!!
To the God who always says: No!!..
Naked (But Still Stripping)
My tongue's tied and sliced in two
And wagging at both ends...
Yeah, I've learned to talk -
Both sides of my mouth makes sense
You'll see the skin of my teeth
But you won't see a smile
So here it is, the big truth
Hiding in the little lie...
My throw decides my aim
And with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end
As if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!
I'm naked but still stripping..

Luxury tends to be the same every day
But I know misery's for each in his own way..
I count on amputated fingers who I call a friend
The end is hard when brought about
By what you thought made sense...
My throw decides my aim and with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end as if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming - yeah!
I'm naked - but still stripping..

Some people live so close
To their bones; with just themselves to be
But I run around; inside myself
- Like something's after me
I take off my skin
Underneath there's nothing
Everything's gone ... A naked skeleton!
Piece of an arm piece of a leg
A piece of my tongue
And peace for everyone...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!
Are We Alive Here???
We're leaving every turn unstoned
And every lesson is unlearned..
With nothing said and nothing done
I know it works on everyone....
Because love cools and friends drift apart
Too old to be shy
But I wonder what to say
- After I said: Hi!
Are we alive here? Are we loosers are we winners
Are we alive here??
Sometimes I doubt, but if we get it all out; it's so clear
But, hey what's on for dinner?
Are we alive here?
Would you please pass the guilt...

Just like a tune on ears of stone
It will be ringing through your bones
It's the push that no one sees..
That gives a mouth of broken teeth, yeah!
Because love cools yeah, and friends drift apart
And the sky's weighed down with clouds of stone, yeah!
And the mirror stares back on a smile of it's own..
Too old to be shy and I wonder what to say - After I said: Hi!
Are we alive here? Are we loosers are we winners
Are we alive here??
Sometimes I'm in doubt, but if we get it all out it's soooo clear
But, hey what's on for dinner?
Are we alive here?
Are we alive or not - do we have nothing in our head but..
I know it's time to go now we've said hello!
Are we alive here? Are we loosers are we winners
Are we alive here??
Sometimes I doubt, but if we get it all out, it's sooo clear
But, hey what's on for dinner?
Are we alive here?
Would you please pass the guilt yeah!
Love cools yeah, and friends drift apart
And the sky's weighed down with clouds of stoooneeeehhhnnn
Are we alive here? Are we alive here?? Are we alive here???
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
There's many a difference quickly found
Between the different people walking around
But you know it's a strange illusion, chaos and confusion..
When the tree of life is cut down to where
There's nothing left, but a toothpick of despair
So instead of support you - we find it's cheaper to deport you!
I carry it over my shoulder like a lance
A pole with a banner sayin'; T-To-Tolerance!!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright

Some have more than some will ever get
A farewell to arms; a farewell to legs
You know it'll only get worse, when it stops getting better!.
The smell of a dozen countries cooking
The whole beserk package on end while you're looking
There'll be no red light that stops us when the road is ending
I carry it over my shoulder like a lance
A pole with a banner sayin'; T-To-Tolerance!!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
Yeah, It'swhenit'swrongit'sright!
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
It'swhenit'swrongit'sright
- It's all wrong; but that's all-right!!
Flat
Small ideas on little minds
Many fish of many kinds
Easy cash'n'lots of leisure
Above primal law; the prize of pleasure
It pulls you down
It's perfectly clear
There's an end
To even the worst career...
Everybody knows it's up'n'down
But here it's forth'n'back..
And though money makes the world go around
It often makes it flat...

All talk of taste's beside the point
Shift your ideas; make up your mind
- Did you know fun, was this much work
If there's a cost, is it still worth it...
But, I declare each one a friend!
And take day by day untill the end..
Everybody knows it's up'n'down
But here it's forth'n'back..
And though money makes the world go around
It often makes it flat..
It often makes it flat-
But I declare each one a friend
And take day by day untill the end
Everybody knows it's up'n'down
But here it's forth'n'back..
Though money makes the world go around
It often makes it flat..
Everybody knows it's up'n'down
But here it's forth'n'back..
Though money makes the world go around
It often makes it flat.
It often makes it flat..
It often makes it flat...
