No Disco [original version]

There’s no disco
Absolutely nothing like this
Gays like disco
Real men do like nothing like this
Give me hip-hop
Even give me rock’n’roll
With my guitar
I will never be alone

Black guys, white guys
Straight guys, cool guys
Real guys, street guys
Girls like tough guys

Play no games boys
Make it real and keep it street
Kicking ass boys
Tough ass punk and gangsta shit
Smoke no weed boys
Real men prefer alcohol
Cigarettes and
Sex in cars and rock’n’roll

Black guys, white guys
Straight guys, cool guys
Real guys, street guys
Girls like tough guys

I Wanna Be A Grrl

Don’t want to beat you in sports
don’t want to get a car
don’t want to go very far
don’t want to smoke a cigar
don’t want to go to schools
don’t want to play by the rules
don’t want to listen to politicians
don’t want to go on stupid missions

I wanna be a grrl
Wear make-up and leather mini-skirts
Get busy with boys and fuck the world
you see I really wanna be a grrl

don’t want to watch TV
the plastic idols are no good for me
don’t want to read no books
they don’t say a thing about the looks
don’t want to be a good boy
don’t want to play with my toys
don’t want to work hard, I want to party
don’t want to end when I just started

I wanna be a grrl
Wear make-up and leather mini-skirts
Get busy with boys and fuck the world
you see I really really really wanna be
I wanna be a grrl
Wear make-up and leather mini-skirts
Get busy with boys and fuck the world
you see I really wanna be a grrl

New Order

Life is hard and it’s all you’ve got
and all you get is a broken heart
I order a pizza and I get it cold
I call help desk and am put on hold
My room is huge with unpainted walls
I light a candle so it feels like home
It feels like this with all I see
I love my PC and my PC loves me

Life is hard and it’s all you’ve got
and all you get is a broken heart
Out of 20 emails 19 are spam
it tells me to change the way I am
should I take the blue or the red pill?
what to take to make my life feel real?
It feels like this with all I see
I love my PC and my PC loves me

I’d like to change but don’t know where to start
I’m not satisfied with one single part
Life is hard and it’s all you’ve got
and all you get is a broken heart

(Grant/Tennant)

If You Love Me

Hey now, what you doing to me
Sleepless in my bed, the clock says it’s three
Thinking about you night and day
You laugh it off like it’s okay

You’re playing hard to get, then you kiss me
You’re telling me he’s the one, but you miss me
You’re saying it wouldn’t be so right
But then you don’t really put up a fight

You need to tell me if you want me
You need to tell me if you love me
You’re playing with fire and it’s not okay
Maybe I should smash the board and end the game

I really can’t decide what I should do
Should I try harder or get over you
Every time I try to back away
You give me a hint that I should stay

You’re playing hard to get, then you kiss me
You’re telling me he’s the one, but you miss me
You want to see me, then you don’t
Years later I might still not know

You need to tell me if you want me
You need to tell me if you love me
You’re playing with fire and it’s not okay
It seems to be my heart you want to break
You need to tell me if you want me
You need to tell me if you love me
You’re playing with fire and it’s not okay
Maybe I should smash the board and end the game

La Perversita

She seems to you to be very much into it
The drugs, a ripped t-shirt and a mini skirt
Nobody wonders how she’s getting through it
The sweat, the men and the other girls

She opens her zip whenever you need it then closes it back
When you touch her face she thinks of her dad

Her body is the only thing she’s got
She doesn’t dream a lot, she knows the facts
Viva la perversita
At the age of twenty five her life will be over
Her place on the street taken by another
Viva la perversita

“No quiero desear” she says in her bedroom
You don’t want to listen, you just want to touch
She thinks about her dentist and life on the moon
When you take what you want, pay and say goodbye

She opens her zip, you think that she likes it cause she closes her eyes
You may be inside her but she’s really outside

Her body is the only thing she’s got
She doesn’t dream a lot, she knows the facts
Viva la perversita
At the age of twenty five her life will be over
Her place on the street taken by another
Viva la perversita

To you she’s but a thing to satisfy your desire
To her you are nothing more but another buyer
There is nothing human about what you do
She doesn’t even hate you; she’s too tired to

Her body is the only thing she’s got…

Move On Again

There is no point in missing the past
In trying to turn back the time
You’ll never get back to who you were
No point in asking why

You never will get home again
You won’t come back to your old life
The man you loved will not return
To kiss your face tonight

How many lovers do you need
to erase the fear and pain?
How many more hearts will you break
Before you move on yet again?

There is no point in thinking of the past
There’s nothing to regret
Move on
Move on again

The Trip

I’m taking a trip on a big big rocket
On a one-way ticket, a one-way ticket
I paid the bills for your thrills
The last one has come through
We went too far too many times
But had to see it through
The trip we had is over now
I wasn’t cool enough
Not cool enough for you

I see stars in front of my eyes
I’m gonna land on one
You were a dark energy star
that nothing could move from
But no, you couldn’t bend my time
While events have rolled through
The trip we had is over now
I wasn’t cool enough
Not cool enough for you

I am a very peculiar star
Abundant in heavy metals
I’m gonna find a supergiant
That has his own chemicals
No substance in your substances
Enjoy them and be free
The trip we had is over now
You were not cool enough
Not cool enough for me

Secrets

Some years ago you were looking forward
To going home, holidays with your family
To home-made food and a glass of sweet wine
Unwrapping gifts under the christmas tree

They ask you ’bout a special someone in your life
your smile is innocent but murder in your eyes
you say you’re still looking and they seem so naive
if you told them the truth they would never believe

Nobody sees what they’re not looking for
Nobody asks if they don’t want to know
You’ve got that cynical look in your eyes
Smile of an angel is still your disguise

Maybe you look different than ten years ago
But in their eyes you’re still that sweet shy boy
They don’t suspect darkness in your soul
And you wouldn’t tell them, for why would they know

You feel that you’re both happy and sad
To be sitting here with your mom and dad
Sweet people who don’t even begin to know
What sort of things you go through at home

Nobody sees what they’re not looking for
Nobody asks if they don’t want to know
You’ve got that cynical look in your eyes
Smile of an angel is still your disguise

Nobody sees what they’re not looking for
There is no innocent boy anymore
You’ve got your secrets and you guard them well
Nobody knows that you’re going to hell

They wouldn’t think of asking where you got the money
For the gifts that you bought and put under the tree
At the same time you want to scream and find it funny
Some people just don’t think about some things

Nobody sees what they’re not looking for
Nobody asks if they don’t want to know
You’ve got that cynical look in your eyes
Smile of an angel is still your disguise

Nobody sees what they’re not looking for
There is no innocent boy anymore
You’ve got your secrets and you guard them well
Nobody knows that you’re going to hell

Crash II

I’m coming down and getting up again
Invincible, just you and I, my friend
We’re gonna get another night
Of unlimited
Fun fun fun fun fun

Look at the snow, isn’t it beautiful?
Don’t you go home, stay with us, party on
It feels so good and you’re turning me on
Carry on
Nothing’s wrong

We’re heading for the crash head on
There’s nothing wrong with carrying on
From dusk till dawn
We’re heading for the crash head on
There’s nothing wrong with having fun
On and on

I’ve never seen the morning sun so much
It’s blazing hot, I’m reaching out to touch
It’s like the fire in my veins
I feel it burn me
again and again and again

Look at the snow, isn’t it beautiful?
Don’t you go home, stay with us, party on
It feels so good and you’re turning me on
Carry on
I’ll come along

We’re heading for the crash head on
There’s nothing wrong with carrying on
From dusk till dawn
We’re heading for the crash head on
There’s nothing wrong with having fun
On and on

Saferoads

you are online now
your friends are watching you
you don’t know who they are
but everyone assures you
it’s all in your best interest
it’s all to make you better
but truth is what they’d like to do
is put a camera in your head

run run run run run run run run

you are offline now
they still know where you are
no longer paranoia
it’s truth about our times
it’s all in your best interest
it’s all to make you better
but truth is what they’d like to do
is put a camera in your head

run run run run run run run run

they can not read your mind yet
but they can blow your head off
remember to be careful
only step on safe roads
they can not read your mind yet
but they can bust your ass
remember to be careful
remember to be careful when you

run run run run…
