Track Name: Spoon To The Moon
Isn’t it nice to be young?
Nowhere to stay and always on the run
Isn’t it nice not to know
What will happen, where your path my go?
I enjoy it so much, I can barely hide
I enjoy it so much, let’s take a ride
On my magic spoon, we’ll fly to the moon
Hold on to my back, we’ll be there soon
I planted a tree for each of my dreams
The black side of the moon is rather green
Dreams dissolve into dust
Just the day they come true
So I hold out in lust
And have some beer with you
I’m refusing to grow up, try to make me do
Grow up up up up up up up
And down down down goes all I know
Track Name: The Insurence Society
This day is black and grey
The sun is shining, never mind
The flowers you have found me on the way are way to nice
The insurence society is not prepared for you and me
A sick and sad-faced generation studying philosophy and arts
Why does this feel tragic and how did you fall apart this time?
How did you fall apart this time, why would you fall apart this time?
How did you get to slow your mind before it went to far?

The city is an awful crowded place
But there are ways not to be here
You take the bus, you take the train
And yet the monsters will remain
See this society is not prepared for you and me
A sick and sad-faced generation studying philosophy and arts
Track Name: Winnie - The - Pooh
He’s been sitting on this tree forever
And he sort of hopes the wheather’s gonna stay
As misty as it is
And some bees fly by and wonder why
It took him so long to make some conversation time
It takes a day or even two
To find Winnie The Pooh inside of you
Trying may be good, but ain’t succeeding?
All the time he has been pleading for the sun
To float into his lungs
Track Name: Hello, Hello
You like me, yes I know you do and you
Would like to kiss me and I know
You miss me when I go
Hello, hello you look so gorgeuos, what about a cup of tea
Hello, hello you talk so tender, come and spend the night with me
Let us sit and talk about the things we’d like to write on walls
But never do because we are too lame
Let us go and get some wine and then get really drunk and maybe smoke
although that’s silly and a shame
When will the day come when you eat me
Dont you know I’m longing for your pants
To lay on the floor of my bedroom while we
Have little bed room dance
Track Name: Ok Please
It’s been a while and I feel fine
Is that ok, please?
I guess I could care less, as well as more
See, I don’t feel like going for
The pain you might cause me
If I gave you again power
Is power the word that I need?
You’re so sweet, you never speak in categories like these
So tell me how you think this works
You text me everytime you feel?
Are you for real? Did you forget who cut the line
May I remind you who it was?
Track Name: March 29
And you say it’s alright, there’s no need to be afraid
But I am, but I am, but I am
And you try to ease my mind
Which a rhyme you have read on a pad calender
March 29
And you say that it’s best to let go of what you love
But I can’t
And who can by the way, who can easily say
I don’t mind if you leave, though I’d love you to stay
Track Name: Cages
Trapped in cages that they call our bodies
I’m falling in love with the idea of fading away
I’m far too massive and my flesh disgusts me
Perhaps it’s best to disappear oh take me away
I need to be less and I need to let loose
I need to spread sex whereever I cruise
Trapped in bodies that are judged by pictures
of anorexic girls for Vogue, I’m fading away
I don’t deserve not to diet, nor to bitch or to riot, I’m supposed to be great and up to date
Otherwise I’m gonna be replaced by these images that chased me into this cage
Track Name: From Fool To Fool
Once upon a time in a summer’s night
There were two fools sharing excuses for not
Being faithful and true
Some more nights went by and they had a try
Being truely uncommitted to each other
And the world seemed kind of new
Do do do do do do do do do… If there’s anyone I want to know the mess that I am it’s you
Once upon a time in a winter’s night
There were two fools sharing the promise to be faithful and true
Some more nights went by and they had a try being
Truely well committed to each other
And the world seemed kind of new
Do do do do do do do do do… If there’s anyone I want to know the best that I am it’s you
Once upon a time in a summer’s night
There were two fools on the phone
Feeling extremely alone
Track Name: Not The Fun
Ev’ryone I talk to tries to find
New ways to commit without being hit
My heart was broken
I can’t focus on the books I’ve got to read
Make this pain disappear, make this bleeding stop
This is not the fun they told me it would be
I don’t know what I need cause I want so much
I want bodies and closure, I want your touch
I want safety and pure, honest tenderness
I want you to want me, I don’t want nothing less
Track Name: Ellen Page
Evrybody’s sort of nervous though we know we shouldn’t be
I’m drinking yogi tea, telling me to slow it down
I tend to be short-tempered just in cases when I shouldn’t be
I’m drinking yogi tea, telling me to slow it down
There is no way to peace cause peace itself’s the way
Does anybody have something less helpfull to say?
But Ellen Page made my day
Making a difference today
It seems to me the hardest part is learing when to let it be
I’m drinking yogi tea, telling me to slow it down
If we all tried to be a bit more kind
I guess that might be nice
If ev’rybody tried to be a little bit more kind
that might be nice
Track Name: A Sailor Knows
It takes some courage to cast off and I’m afraid, my Dear
It takes some courage to cast off, ain’t that profound?
It takes some courage to cast off and I can barely get my feet to touch the ground
Now I sit here with my nervousness and all the little ghosts a sailor knows
It takes some courage to cast off that I will grow, my Dear
It takes some courage to cast off, ain’t that profound?
And I can barely get my feet, oh oh, to stay in touch with me and on the ground
Track Name: Mirror, Mirror + Hidden Track
It was a morning like any other morning
I looked into the mirror, it said„Damn Queen, you look good.“
I said „Thank you, any news?“
It said „Well, indeed, there’s a new girl in town..
She supposed to be very very pretty quite nice
And even pretty witty
Her hair so dark, her skin so light
They’re calling her Snow White.“
Mirror mirror go to hell
Fuck yourself and fuck your spell
I am better off without the things you tell
I’m so fed up with being compared
and comparing myself to the rest
I’m so very sick of figuring out
who’s the fairest, the smartest, the best
I’ll burn her hair, scratch out her eyes
Until she cries no more
That dirty little whore is stealing what was mine
I bet she’s feeling fine
Why is it always such a fight, is it always such a fight, is it always such a fight?
What are we fighting for and why, are we fighting for an why, are we fighting for and why?
I have not fully figuered this out, but I doubt it’s a very healthy game to play
