Dreams 02:46
dreams dreams are the biggest liars in the world dreams are the biggest liars in the world dreams are the biggest liars in the world don't trust them a word you'll only get hurt they give you some hope they're just like cheap dope taste sweet, honey but provide no money my dream's on a slope it's cutting my rope and it banned me so bad into an exile inside my head yes, they are breathtaking but you are always awaking and no wire to connect them with your day in the morning you're still shaking but reality is breaking every single one of them like prisoners dreams are the biggest liars in the world dreams are the biggest liars in the world dreams are the biggest liars in the world my dreams lie scattered in the dirt dreams are the big losers of our time my dream is just a bum begging a dime dreams are the big losers of our time my dream is just a bum begging a dime

Mermaid 04:47
mermaid three years, no dance three thousand tears per romance all talking was a pity now she's stalking through the city with three beer, half a bottle of gin 27 letters in the waste bin he bought 15 bullets 12 he shot on a bottle three killed the boy within polished chains pale blood in his veins they unmasked his saints they changed his paint once he was familiar to me once this guy in the mirror was me on the bottom of a well one hour is one day thoughts just fight forget how to play words echo in the well sharp like a bell i tell you the years leave a salty melody in your ear but then you come along pump fresh air into my lung cheer up my song wash the dust off my rainbow repair the tubes for the dream flow let's laugh about our sorrow please bite into my arm i wanna feel if you're real release your breaks i grab the wheel you gave me boots and they're fast they take me out of the past they show me a place to rest

Manual 05:38
Manual i seek a treasure in the dust, in the dirt i steal a feather of each bird in the world for your pleasure i could do this forever a set of wings for every weather i'll chop the wood for a fire to keep us warm repair the doors that were damaged in the storm i'll calm you down in those nights that want to harm you play this tune in the mornings to charm you this is easy it's easy easy easy you're afraid of the wolf? he is my friend afraid of the ghost? i understand but it should be easy easy easy easy

Moses 03:53
moses why would i need a shovel in my hand? what's here to dig man? my own grave? i don't need your haircut i don't need your shave why would i need money in your bank? what's here to pay man? my own bone? i don't need your palace i don't need your throne say, why would i need your whip to lick my back? what's here to sweat for? a bed and bread? since i know you i've got the rats in my shed i won't bow, i won't beg to your lack of respect the big desert you spread in my head i won't beg, i won't bow to your glamour and your show the big mountains you pull in front of my window let my people go let 'em go let 'em go let my people go! why would i need your words to cut my tongue? what's here to speak bout? that's your lie! i won't greet you i won't wave goodbye why would i need your rifle in my hand? what's here to fight for? that's my land! i don't trust you i don't shake your hand you're not what i'd call a friend a friend won't spill no tear and a friend does not appear in all this army gear is that what you call kind? kind men don't act like rats kind men don't hang out with the bats i won't beg, i won't bow cause no justice and no law will stop this river of blood that just reached my doorstep let my people go let 'em go let 'em go let my people go!

Sweet Dreams 04:51
sweet dreams i cannot walk on water but i can freeze it to ice you do not trust the truth? i can offer some lies but know, ice is such a slippery terrain it might crack or you fall and break your back and it gets thin up ahead so much weight to drag rub your waking eyes, my dear this is worse than it seams i can't control the fire but it's going to calm down to a glow yes, i chose to perform in this show not to take a seat in the front row though i know every mountain has its peak if i dig too deep, the ship might leak yes, i want to be awake but they disturb my sleep dry your crying eyes, my dear this is worse than it seams sweet dreams don't show them desperate eyes, my dear they're far worse than they appear they were here, here to steal your love equipped with traps to set them all along your path are you sane enough to withstand their wrath nothing gets between a wolf and his feast this desire can't be ceased if you don't want to bleed you'll support them with meat but dry your crying eyes, my dear you know i'm here to be here

Nude 03:05

Stranger 02:33
stranger i have seen you i have seen how much you have been moved i have seen your eyes i have seen what happened when you smiled but i don't want to see that again i don't want to feel that again i touched your heart now i can't get the stains off my hand you have seen me you have seen how much i have been moved you have seen my eyes you felt what happened when i smiled don't you want to see that again! don't you want to feel that again! you touched my heart we're full of blood

Bad Company 04:47
bad company that's someone else in the mirror he puts nails in my pillow someone dances in bone his heart as cold as stone that's someone else in the mirror he carved my name in her willow sends a hollow ghost into her room tied and sealed me up in my cocoon that's my face in the mirror but i look like a killer a stray dog astray with my mind a thousand miles away that's someone else in the mirror he wants always a bit more yes he's always in need he's got a million mouths to feed now who's this clown in my head? he is me – but he's such a bad company he grows with each and every tear what will he do when i'm not here? now who's this boy in my head? says he's me – but whistles such a sad melody he gathers all my scars and melts them into bars
