Empty Heads
Hey, I'm the guy there on the wall and I'm all dismembered parts
Yeah, I got not arms or legs: So go ahead and call me - Art!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..

And now I'm floating in the sea. 'Coz I'm the guy that lost his job
Yeah, I lost my arms & legs, so go ahead and call me: Bob!!
I'm a stick of dynamite and I'm smiling with delight
And it's o.k. - 'coz, they all stay away when you need them the most
Serving up another dream into everybody's empty heads
Stirring up another scene into everybody's empty heads
Whipping up another style into everybody's empty heads
Hoping that it brings a smile on everybody's vacant face..
Simpatico
That's where you go, yeah. It's the home of the uprooted
It's here and there Hey, I got both feet planted solid in the air
Hard to know, yeah, if you're dead or you're just too slow
But I should have known, but I was confused
And that you're innocent until you're abused
I stare at the frame 'coz the mirror hangs too low
And here's a man who never says No!
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico!

It's time to explain, I hear I haven't heard you right...
What's in your head - see I got no idea; 'coz my party's inside!
I stare at the frame 'coz the mirror hangs too low
And here's a man, who never says: no!
Simpatico! Wherever you go. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Wherever you go.. Simpatico! You're a one man show
Simpatico! Simpatico! Simpatico! Simpatico!
Home Alone 4
Gently my eyelids close, I'd rather be good than clever
I'd rather have all facts wrong than no reply whatever..
I learned before I could speak with those "being patient eyes"
When God created my kind. But he forgot to tell me why
So gently my eyelids close..
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had...

Led by hearts & ears - memory lagging behind
No shame being a fool, I got many things on my mind
Pick up the phone on first riiiing - I never get out anymore..
There's nowhere to go, but back and there's quicksand outside my door
So gently my eyelids close
All alone, at home I sit - I'm very tired of it
Burn the midnight oil or pour it on my salad
I lost the thread I thought I had.. I lost it - I lost it. Yeah!
Is that a shadow - or a hole in the floor?
And what's that noise outside my door??
Home alone. On my own.. And all alone...
Cloudy Hours
For tomorrows unpaid fears - now I'm seeing future years
It's not death - it's hell I fear - Yeah, but still I come and go
What I pay to see the show - Yeah, right now it's all I know
'Coz in all those cloudy hours when your demons seize your brain
Yeah, you think, you're going crazy, but I'm going back again..
Yeah, I'm going back again

Yeah, moving walls of sound up to my neck, but I can't drown.
The rooms so small I can't fall down. I'm feeling lose,
But never free noone but myself to be. Oh, I wish you were like me
'Coz in all those cloudy hours when your demons seize your brain
Yeah, you think you're going crazy, but then you're coming back again
Yeah, in all those cloudy hours. see it's a game within the game
Yeah, I felt that I'd gone crazy - I'm going back again..
Yeah, in all those cloudy hours when a demon seized my brain
Yeah, I falt that I'd gone crazy - But I'm coming back again
Yeah, I'm coming back, I'm coming back again...
Hate To Say I Told You So
I need to be afraid, said the kindweak man
As he lay cuddled up in his bed with those whispers around his head
Yeah, he'd come to nothing in a way - in a way that left him
With nothing to say but: o.k.! Yeah, his eyes only worked one way
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..

Old scars, but the cuts were new, said the girl, who loved many
But trusted a few, yeah, it's true - 'coz she feared anyone new
She lend out her feelings of pure affection, he kept the collection
And the missing piece of her heart - Yeah, her eyes only looked that far
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..

There's murder going on inside...
Yeah, 'coz you only see so much through the human eye
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
And the thing that destroys you, is that you had the answers right here
There's no such thing as paranoia, it's always twice as bad as you fear
I told you I told you I hate to say I told you so..
No One Answers
Mr. Smarty held a party - Yeah, and noone came then his brother
Held another - Guess what? - Yeah, just the same!
Still so common, no matter how hard they try.
Eat the dead; but leave the wounded... Yeah!
I can take it, and I don't take it personally
The eye turned inwards of the inside world - way too many parties &
Way too many pals - Hey, I could be falling, yeah! But, I'm fine
And if I should roll over - I don't mind - I'll need a coca-cola
And they don't hear me. So they don't answer back

Listening for the cry to match the cry inside of me
Levis & Lee - they're never as blue as me
Just came to tell you, I got pissed on my way here
Letting go of all stern warnings, yeah - and it's weird
Trying to be different - not a chance - get back on my quadrant
And they don't hear me, so they don't answer back
They don't listen, so they don't answer back
Yeah, they don't hear me, so they don't answer back
Mad Days
Making the the worst of a bad situation with an ants patience and a fleas strength
Like a kid about to squash an insect - I'll break it down and build it up again
Yeah, mad days to shut out the pain - the 7 sins - the sorrows seven
You seek wild friendships, but never a friend - it's always mad days to shut out pain

If you can't have all; have some more of the bitter best or the sugared worst
Yeah, the blackest night on another planet - a hand out of space; picking you up
You seek wild friendships, but never a friend - it's always mad days to shut out pain

It's the same situation - same head - my eyes are fire-engine red
Staring at a hole through space - the pain goes away - the wound stays...
When love is a nothing place - dive into: mad days...
Don't Tell Me Anything
Right now no song on the radio could be too stupid for my heart
Wind me up and let me walk...
I've got no strategy but to suck up the sear and tear the earth apart
Man like dog can be taught not to talk..
Yeah, those who remember me as half good company
As a man who saved himself through irony
- Don't tell me anything - if I hear a secret - I'll burst
Don't tell me anything - unless you wanna hear the worst
I'll never tell anyone what they haven't already heard
Don't tell me anything - if I smell a secret: I'll burst...

My tongue just wanna get rid of the truth - yeah, it's one big misery
And then right here, where silence's king
It goes against the grain of who I thought I was
A bird drops in and I start to sing
I bump into furniture and step on peoples feet
And I say the things I shouldn't say to those I meet...
So don't tell me anything - if I hear a secret - I'll burst
Don't tell me anything - unless you wanna hear the worst
I'll never tell anyone what they haven't already heard
Don't tell me anything - if I smell a secret: I'll burst...

Yeah, those who remember me as half good company
As a man who saved himself through irony
- Subtleties... It's a mean attack of honesty !
- Don't tell me anything - unless you wanna hear the worst
I'll never tell anyone what they haven't already heard
Don't tell me anything - if I hear a secret - I'll burst
- Yeah, don't tell me anything - if I smell a secret: I'll burst...
You Do What I've Just Done
You hunt the smartest animal and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do...

To be childish keeps you young, but to be treated like a child
Makes you old too soon - Haven't spent time with Jesus to know if that's true
Our fathers backs that leaves us, our mothers arms that needs us
Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand

You hunt the smartest animal - and that's the human being
You don't know how smart man is - smarter than he seems...
Their fathers groin that breeds'em, their mothers breast that feeds'em
Yeah, the do - Yeah, they do... Yeah, they do - Yeah, they do...

Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer want to be a fireman
Keep that in mind next time that you do what I've just done
I no longer wanna be a fireman - and I know, I know you'll understand
Life Right Now
I heard a cold advice: pick on someone your own size
And that leaves you, and rules out me.. 'Coz it's a kick in the head
Hey, everybody said, I didn't turn the other cheek
You think I'm weird. How weird are you?
Do you get tired when people stare?? Hey, I know, I do...
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile

I fly around like a bee and everything you do - I see
Yeah, I see you when you're weak - but with my head on my spine
I go to yours and you go to mine - the world's rocking under my feet
As though the present's never here
Hey, hey.. It's always last week and it's always next year
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile

It's hard to do - too hard to take - I'm pretty scared and very wide awake
I see the road, not the turns ahead - so I say...
It's the way life is right now - I get up at dawn; I fall down at night
It's the way life is right now - I hope that noone sees my frightened smile
It's the way life is right now and I'm seeing things in a different light

What if tomorrow wasn't there - never a next week
Never just another year - Yeah, like time just disappear
It's the way life is right now...................... I heard a cold advice:
Pick on someone your own size and that leaves you and rules out me..
Now Or Forever
Rich & free, and a life beyond worries
Time like words can be wasted too much
Tried to cut his own wrist with an electric razor
It's a disease no doctor will touch
Maybe it's now or forever, now or forever
See that's how when you point your finger
That everytime that you throw dirt, you lose a little ground

What not to do & how not to do it
Back when being wild, still meant drinking beers
It's written on the back of his shirt: He don't have to work!
You can call him all day - But he just won't hear...
Maybe it's now or forever, now or forever
See that's how when you point your finger
If later is never, then now is forever, now or forever
Every time you throw dirt, you lose a little ground

Now or forever, I know I'm not wiser & I'm not better
But why do you point your finger
Everytime you throw dirt, you lose a little ground
Now or forever, now or forever
See that's how when you point your finger
That everytime that you throw dirt, you lose a little ground
A Hand Without Strength
An empty plate for love & hate, so hungry like they never ate
And if you fight, noone fights back - 200 killings
Now I know that death is wearing black
A hand that holds me without strength - a hand that touches me without weight

The troops of love are flying out - very angry, very loud
- You can see it from the air - when you get hit,
You don't know where, and nothings seems fair
A hand that holds me without strength a hand that touches me without weight

And with no flag left to defend - a hand that pushes me
Anything as long as you touch me - Touch me - touch me - touch me
