Track Name: Another Messiah
Do you remember the boy so shy
At your fancy-dress ball
You were the cheerleader but nothing supernatural
You trod my rush
You made my nerdy loosy reputation
I lived a hell cause of your bad, mad, sad action

Now do me a favor, gimme the razor
That you used to hurt me
Don't be afraid, I just play the game
You started so be ready

Tell me again that I am dumb like a buffalo
You know my name
I stuck your voice out of my stereo

ALL YOU SEE IS JUST A PART OF ME
A SINGLE PIECE OF MY COMPLEXITY
IMAGINE THERE'S A POWER IN EVERYONE
ALL I NEED IS JUST A VICTORY
A SIMPLE TRICK MAKING OUR HISTORY
IMAGINE THERE'S A COLOR FOR EVERY DAWN

Now all the fuzz has come off you
You're in your little shoes
The gleam has gone
It ain't no fun trying to carry on
No Tinkerbell to give you back the sweet sensation
Your days are gone into the mad…

Now do me a favor, my doll
Could you drop the gloss and endeavour pity
Outrage, blackball
Another gossip book with another messiah

ALL YOU SEE IS JUST A PART OF ME
A SINGLE PIECE OF MY COMPLEXITY
IMAGINE THERE'S A POWER IN EVERYONE
ALL I NEED IS JUST A VICTORY
A SIMPLE TRICK MAKING OUR HISTORY
IMAGINE THERE'S A COLOR FOR EVERY DAWN

Do me a favor, gimme the razor
That's the way it goes
Do me a favor, do me a favor
That's the way it goes
Track Name: Devil In Me
All I see is pale and torn
Faces in the country hall
I don't stand what you say
I throw up all the pills I swallow

They try to get me paranoid
Who's the cop, who's the toy?
And I don't wanna, wanna live in my head
Wanna wanna burn them instead

I FEEL THE DEVIL IN ME

Is Jay a communist?
I'd swear his name's on the list
Bigger plan, a deeper trap
Do they need this kind of contract?

I don't know what to believe
I even doubted of corned beef
Still I don't wanna wanna live in my head
Wanna wanna burn them instead

I FEEL THE DEVIL IN ME

I can feel her wisdom
In a tragic kingdom
By the way

I can feel her wisdom
Like a brain above the mystery wave
Oh oh oh oh

I FEEL THE DEVIL IN ME
Track Name: Motorgasm
Hear me calling you
Let me see on your face
A kind of dirty move
That can destroy your place
Dancing by the light
Revealing flesh and bones
For the victory
Let's hit the floor

To be my lover
You gotta drink more tequila
And you know
I won't pretend to be your Chris Tucker
I won't pretend to know you bitch

Cause you'd be my lover
I don't understand the way you linger
And the pitch is like:
"Beside me keep by my side
Beside you keep by my secret"
Always your pretty face

SO IF YOU PUT A SPELL ON ME
I'LL TELL YOU A STORY OF A DANCING QUEEN
WHO GETS (A) RID OF LOVE
SO IF YOU PUT A SPELL ON ME
I'LL TELL YOU I'M SORRY
BUT I'M STUCK BETWEEN
YOU AND YOUR MYSTIC LOVE

To be my lover
You don't understand it to the letter
And you know
I won't pretend to change your behaviour
I won't pretend to be the one

Cause you'd be my cover
Sealing your lips would be much better
And the pitch is like:
"Beside me, keep by my side
Beside you, keep by my secret"

SO IF YOU PUT A SPELL ON ME
I'LL TELL YOU A STORY OF A DANCING QUEEN
WHO GETS (A) RID OF LOVE
SO IF YOU PUT A SPELL ON ME
I'LL TELL YOU I'M SORRY
BUT I'M STUCK BETWEEN
YOU AND YOUR MYSTIC LOVE

Hey
I'm what you say
I'll be your hobo
Stuck in traffic in L.A.
And I'm your toy
I'm paranoid
I'll be your wooden horse
Into the walls of Troy
And what you see is what you think
You're gonna take away

I'm your toy
I'm paranoid
Into the walls of Troy
You got the way
To my unconsciousness and destiny
Oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Moonlight Murderer
I got it on my fingers
I'm not a lonely dancer
Looking for some girls
Who are looking for some killers
I got her on my knees
But she doesn't have the keys
To open up the cages
On my deepest underground

WHO LEFT HER KNOWS
I BET SHE DOESN'T KNOW
THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL TIME
AND THE BEAUTY OF HER MIND
IS NEVER GONNA GET HER ANYWHERE

I got her on my shoulder
I'm not her swastika
Waiting like a fool
To take of her picture
I got her in my head
But she always seems to be
To most fucking worst
My fucking worst enemy

WHO LEFT HER KNOWS
I BET SHE DOESN'T KNOW
THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL TIME
AND THE BEAUTY OF HER MIND
IS NEVER GONNA GET HER ANYWHERE

(verse 1)

WHO LEFT HER KNOWS
I BET SHE DOESN'T KNOW
THE GREATEST LOVE OF ALL TIME
AND THE BEAUTY OF HER MIND
IS NEVER GONNA GET HER ANYWHERE

WHO LEFT HER KNOWS…
Track Name: Dandy Animals
When your third eyes
On a mummy palm
Frozen fairies
Sing the beach bones
When the off switch
Is way too high
You can call
You can beg
For the crystal knight

WE DREAD NOT DANDY ANIMALS
YOU NEVER GONNA GET IT FROM ME

Well the CK's
They all tangled up
They can lend you
This princess uppercut
When the off switch
Places the X spot
Pray for them
Ask for them
So you can level up

WE DREAD NOT DANDY ANIMALS
YOU NEVER GONNA GET IT FROM ME

We dread not Dandy Animals
Spiderwebs attacks are invisible
Wonder crack on narghile's heels
Boogers, giant claws
They are not for real
We dread not Dandy Animals
Lord pray for me
And these Animals
YEEEAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH!

WE DREAD NOT DANDY ANIMALS
Track Name: She's Going Commando
Love, tears
You draw this picture
On a frozen wall
Pillow passion! now

You've got it all
I've got a mission
Don't be afraid about the distance
Friend-enemy equalization
Paris Hilton Contamination

NO MUSIC ON MARS
NO TWIST AND NO SHINE
SHE'S GOING COMMANDO
HER WORLD IS MINE
SHE'S FEELING DIVINE
CHAMPAGNE AND WINE
SHE'S GONE COMMANDO
HER WORLD IS MINE

Drugs, beers
You never mentioned
When I used to call
Vile addiction! Now

You've got it all
I've got a mission
Don't be afraid about the distance
Friend-enemy equalization
Paris Hilton contamination

NO MUSIC ON MARS
NO TWIST AND NO SHINE
SHE'S GOING COMMANDO
HER WORLD IS MINE
SHE'S FEELING DIVINE
CHAMPAGNE AND WINE
SHE'S GONE COMMANDO
HER WORLD IS MINE
Track Name: Montezuma's Revenge
Lyrics: Elliott Charlier / Music: Nicolas Scamardi / Arrangement: Von Durden
Track Name: Lions of Grace
Saviour in despair
Carpe Diem con
I never realized
The authentic pride
Of your primate vision

A legacy of pain
You “kleos” maniac
It’s like you never knew
Your exquisite crew
Is doomed with silence

LIONS OF GRACE
CHASING MY FAITH
(WITH) RED LASER BEAMS

Speeches from your brain
Are like commercials
As the letters pass
Relayed in mass
They carve our lenses

“Gnothi Seauton”
Is your favorite keeper
Develop your cause
In a genius prose
As we sit and beam

LIONS OF GRACE
CHASING MY FAITH
(WITH) RED LASER BEAMS

Semtex beyond
Rosary trees
Fires and screams
Track Name: Feel You
School is for bees
You'll learn in the backyards
Just get the picture
That's shown on the postcard
OK I'll really do define me as a mentor
Darling I feel you

'Cause ever since
You got out of my diapers
It seems your life is real disaster
Did you feel this youth intoxication
Close your eyes
They're like stickers in motion
If you gimme gummies
I'll show you the back room
You'll learn chinese and hoaxes in Cancun
Follow my tracks I'll cover your back
Darling I feel you

AND YOU'VE BEEN DIZZY THROUGH THE NIGHT
YOU RUN ON THE FUSE YOU'RE DYNAMITE

No creed, no greed
Cause they'll lower your speed
No magical tricks no holy button
To reach your goals
(You know well you're not coach Cotton)

If Jelly Roger is the path you aim to
Load an UZI and drop off the bamboo
Follow my tracks I'll cover your back darling
Cause I feel you

AND YOU'VE BEEN DIZZY THROUGH THE NIGHT
YOU RUN ON THE FUSE YOU'RE DYNAMITE
CRASHED AND BROKEN SATELLITE
AND I WILL BLOW YOUR LOVE

AND YOU'VE BEEN DIZZY THROUGH THE NIGHT
YOU RUN ON THE FUSE YOU'RE DYNAMITE
CRASHED AND BROKEN SATELLITE
OF BROKEN ARROWS MY LOVE

You got me
Here's another kind of good sensation
Track Name: From the Basement to the Attic
Big Soul Rolling Stones Extreme Beatles Nena Pink Michael Jackson Lenny Kravitz Guns'n'Roses No Doubt INXS Whitney Houston Weezer Daft Punk Green Day The Cure Jamiroquai Brakes Hole Velvet Underground Danko Jones Elliott Smith AC/DC Bob Dylan White Stripes Pixies Nine Inch Nails Das Pop Edith Piaf Rage Against The Machine Rihanna N.W.A. The Stooges

MY LIFE IS MADE OF SONGS
I GOT THEM GROOVING ON
THESE ARE THE BAD AND THE GOOD TIMES
THE GURGLES I BREATHE ON
I BANG MY HEAD UPON
THESE ARE THE BAD AND THE GOOD TIMES
Track Name: Jenny (Walkin' on the Moon)
Jenny walking on the moon
Black wings on her back
She pretends peals
Of laughter is a way
To make those people stay
Cause she knows the fall

She builds a spaceship
To travel all over her mind
Between truth and lies
Cause it never comes around

JENNY TALKING TO THE MOON
ASKING HER COME BACK
FURIOUS LOVE
IT'S A PYRRHUS VICTORY
A MASS REALITY
AND SHE KNOWS THE FALL

She plays hide and seek
Disguised all over the week
In a quiet smile

But they're proud of the clone
Skin flesh and bone
Soiled Valentine
Cause it never comes around

JENNY TALKING TO THE MOON
ASKING HER COME BACK
FURIOUS LOVE
IT'S A PYRRHUS VICTORY
A MASS REALITY
AND SHE KNOWS THE FALL

I know you're right
To follow your heart
To blow this theme away
The meds the wine
Just throw them apart
It's the grace in your DNA
Track Name: Electric Skeleton
Ain't it wrong
The way you move your body
And you feel strong
And then…
Electric skeleton

Burn (I wish I had many)
Those (Unnecessarily)
Shoes
Until you get the smell of 'em

Spend (I wish I had some of your)
All (personality)
You want
Electric skeleton

YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW
THE VOLTAGE OF YOUR BONES
ELECTRIC SKELETON
IT'S A SPINAL TWIST
THAT YOUR GUTS CANNOT FIT
ELECTRIC SKELETON

Dangerous
Warming up
Kill the priest
Forget the beast
Take a walk
Chill your skin
Choose the one
To be your queen

Take (I wish I had many)
Your (Unnecessarily)
Time
Unless you put a spell on them

Use (I wish I had some of your)
All (personality)
You've got

YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW
THE VOLTAGE OF YOUR BONES
ELECTRIC SKELETON
IT'S A SPINAL TWIST
THAT YOUR GUTS CANNOT FIT
ELECTRIC SKELETON

Hey… She was wanting me to spank her
Hey… What a twisted mind!
She was wanting me to
Tie her hands together
Rub her with a feather
Bring me to her knees and
Say it's now or never

Hey… What a feeling now to own her
Hey… What a big mistake
She was pushing me in
Changing my behaviour
Love her with another
Breaking all the rules
And making her discover
Track Name: Sex Mouth
She's bounded here
With a leather rope
A gift to me
Tanned and fit, enjoy

Lighting role
The damage is done, whatever
She's sex mouth

She's a slave to me (A toy-mate for love)
She would die for me (Stockings take of)
She shoots my ex (Photos of us)
With a simple fax

I will destroy this love, I mean

ENJOY
FUCKED UP
GLORY
SHE'S SEX MOUTH

She's lying here
On my custom bed
It's a sex-o-drama
Like a pornstar death
A huge scene with carnal actors yeah
She's sex mouth

ENJOY
FUCKED UP
GLORY
SHE'S SEX MOUTH
Track Name: Loony Danny
Hello won't you love me
I'm burning on my feet
I've got some evil skills to show you
And I'm not much bonkers indeed

Hello don't you wanna scream
There's thrills I do always give
I bet you'll find me special

For every Mountain Dew
The devil's on the sweep
I guess he really likes me loony
I think I lost my mind indeed

Laurie don't you wanna live
This love I will never give
I'm weeping out in Texas

Hello won't you love me
Idealistic dream
You'll scream "I love you Danny"
Out of tapes and magazines

Mommy don't you have (my) pills
I'm a ghost and I'm a freak
For West Virginia Christians

HELLO WON'T YOU LOVE ME
WHY DON'T YOU STARE AT ME
MTV FAME AND GLORY
KEEP ME FAR FROM MISERY

7 don't you love me
Satan is number 6
Eternal death's an 8
And 9's what we all wanna be

The church is for the chicks
Not servant of the priest
A funeral home in Austin

Hello won't you love me
I'm burning on my feet
Casual conversation
We're on national T-V

Laurie don't you wanna live
This love you will never give
I'm weeping out in Texas

I threw the keys out by the window
I threw the keys out of my mind

HELLO WON'T YOU LOVE ME
WHY DON'T YOU STARE AT ME
MTV FAME AND GLORY
KEEP ME FAR FROM MISERY
