Track Name: Eric
Eric is sitting in the rain
protected by a cardbord frame
he spends his day with cans of beer
someone get him out of here

he has got nothing to lose
no clothes in stores for him to choose
no home for him to return to
so he takes a bag of glue
and he wonders to himself...

who am I? Society?
a peanut? A fucking flee?
Where did I deserve all this
sitting in a corner that smells like piss,
begging all day to survive
Eric and his miserable live

What is left for him to choose?
all that he has are drugs and booze
and everything seems now OK
he has lived it through the day

and he's singing on the streets
drunk of the problems he don't need
dumpsterdiving all night long
finding food to get along
but he still wonders to himself...

who am I? Society?
a peanut? A fucking flee?
Where did I deserve all this
sitting in a corner that smells like piss,
begging all day to survive
Eric and his miserable live
Track Name: Ship Of Anarchy
six months we're sailing the sea
forgotten what life used to be
no help we're here on our own
just going wher the winds us have blown

set sail throughout the night
with drinking, robbing and sometimes a fight
this is how it feels to be free
a pirates life for me!

Say hey! (hey!)
come aboard (woohoohoo)
there's room enough for more
and drink (hey!)
rum with me (whoohoohoo)
on the ship of anarchy

some say, that pirates are rude
like killing and raping, but that's not the truth
we're not that stereotype
but we do like drinking and a good fight!

Set sail to paradise
where drinks are cheap and women are nice
let's drink a bottle or three
a pirates life for me!

Say hey! (hey!)
come aboard (woohoohoo)
there's room enough for more
and drink (hey!)
rum with me (whoohoohoo)
on the ship of anarchy

Say hey! (hey!)
come aboard (woohoohoo)
there's room enough for more
and sail (hey!)
along with me (whoohoohoo)
on the ship of anarchy
Track Name: Tonight Is Mine
Morning time, stand in line
traffic jams and stress are just an everyday routine
coffee to get up and start another day
working hard for dreams that are far far away

at your desk the telephone rings
a strange voice that welcomes you and it starts to sing
of a new life, without dismay
Take me away!

I never lose control, I always stand in line
all that is gonna change 'cause tonight is mine
I do my work thorough, I always look fine
but not anymore cause tonight is mine

Hey, hey, let's drink some more
enough with being bored
and just please me, and I feel now and I feel
I'm better of now

I never hoped to live like this
but society got me right back on my knees
living for my work and not working just to live
always taking from someone but now it's time to give

at the bar drinking beer
thinking on a plan how to get me out of here
another round
untill last call
Again I fall!

I never lose control, I always stand in line
all that is gonna change 'cause tonight is mine
I do my work thorough, I always look fine
but not anymore cause tonight is mine

Hey, hey, let's drink some more
enough with being bored
and just please me, and I feel now and I feel
I'm better of now

Hey!
Together
Hey!
Unite
we'll bring down
what has brought us down
Track Name: Come Out Now
Leaving the house to take a walk on the street
it's a sunny day, everything's OK
but i'm alone here on the street

no kids are playing around
no grannies are gossiping
so I ask: where is everybody
why don't they come out to join

Hey unlock your door
(come out now)
turn of your TV
(and kick it)
we will make the world
(whoohoo)
a better place to be
because there's something in the air today
can you feel it to?
It's friendship coming on your way
the love from me to you
(me to you)

wandering on in a completely empty town
on an empty road, where it feels so cold
where I feel lost and never found

no people who say hello
no grandpa's on a bench
so I ask where is everybody
why don't they come out to join

Hey unlock your door
(come out now)
turn of your TV
(and kick it)
we will make the world
(whoohoo)
a better place to be
because there's something in the air today
can you feel it to?
It's friendship coming on your way
the love from me to you
(me to you)
Track Name: Don't Be An Idealist
What if our planet dies today?
It will be boring that's the least that you could say
no more pollution 'cause everyone is dead
but I won't be the one who will save the world instead of you
don't hesitate

this is a protest song
(whoohoohoo)
so why don't you sing along
(whoohoohoo)
I can not do this on my own
(whoohoohoo)
so show the world what's going wrong

I'm not the one who'll stop this rage
so I say the truth here now on stage
I don't live in trees and I do have a car
but what have driven all you people so far
don't hesitate

this is a protest song
(whoohoohoo)
so why don't you sing along
(whoohoohoo)
I can not do this on my own
(whoohoohoo)
so show the world what's going wrong (x2)
Track Name: I Cannot Manage It Today
Go buy some groceries in town
and do the dishes, mow the lawn
don't forget to clean up your room
and the garbage is coming soon

but mother now I must leave you
I got better things to do
like playing music in a band
and drinking beer with my friends

I cannot manage it today
“work to do” is easy to say
but did you thought I just live for you
no friends no live no job to do
get of my back and go away

Why don't you fix our broken sink
wash the car or do something
like our mail or the laundry
there is work to do you see!

But baby now I must leave you
I got better things to do
like playing music in a band

I cannot manage it today
“work to do” is easy to say
but did you thought I just live for you
no friends no live no job to do
get of my back and go away

Go away and leave me
you're just annoying me
go away, sometimes
im better without you
why can't you leave me alone
and treat me like a real full grown
go away now
don't you tell me what to do
Track Name: Should I ?
Standing on the playground acting stupid with some friends
fifteen years we were but good times do always end
memories have fade away but I do remember you
you're gorgious ass hell, I didn't know what to do

everyone stopped talking, so astonished by your beauty
people were looking up and down, just to see
that you're the one, the only one that I want
but it's no option for me that I take my chance

Why didn't I go for it, no matter what she says
probably she would say no, but what if she said yes (whoohoohoo)
and I wonder why, why am I so shy
and I really want this mess
out of me (x3)

many girls were on my mind, there were many in my life
but I still think about it when you were passing by
with a short skirt, long leggs, and breasts that are just perfect
and i ask myself: what is my defect?

Why didn't I go for it, no matter what she says
probably she would say no, but what if she said yes (whoohoohoo)
and I wonder why, why am I so shy
and I really want this mess
out of me (x3)
Track Name: Not A Good Day
My girl has left me
and I don't know why
she has gone with my friend
but I do understand
That it's sadness I feel
and the anger is real.
(not a good day)
I'm all alone and i think that it's
not a good day
and it won't go away

Well yeah,
Yesterday I was coming home from a party
and why am I alone
The world is at my feet
but it is you that I need
But you're not here 'cause you left for that jerk
and in bed I'm think to myself
is this what I deserve
Empty heart
filled with hate
broken apart
god help me!

Nothing goes good i must say that it's
Not a good day (x2)

and it won't go away

My girl has left me
and I don't know why
she has gone with my friend
but I do understand
that she's not worth it no
and i gotta go
to a better world
where love is not sold
to monsters like you
and creatures like him
yesterday i have lost,
but tommorow I'll win singing

Nothing goes good i must say that it's
Not a good day (x4)
Track Name: Rollercoaster
Girl, I think about you
of good and bad times with you
but now, we're not together
and i'm glad this story is through

but there is nothing wrong
the love is gone
but I do still love you
(still love you)
and everytime
you pass me by
I'm acting like a fool

it's not so long since we were together
( short but beautifull time)
but you're just like a rollercoaster
( short but beautifull time) (x2)

Girl, you think about me?
When you lay down in your bed
or was I, just a joyride,
or was I just being misled?

but there is nothing wrong
the love is gone
but I do still love you
(still love you)
and everytime
you pass me by
I'm acting like a fool

it's not so long since we were together
( short but beautifull time)
but you're just like a rollercoaster
( short but beautifull time) (x2)
Track Name: Back In Town
They, they don't want any peace
or won't ever sleep
an ugly smell, a nasty face
they are the cavetrolls

They live in caves were it's wet and cold
they're not so smart but very old
watch the gates of saurons wrath
the guardians of evil faith

(aahaaa)
un ugly smell
(ahaaa)
so big and brown
(ahaaa)
the cavetrolls they are back
back in town

They, they're too dumb to fight
and not a pretty sight
with their clubs they gonna raid
the guardians of evil faith

They're back (x2)
they're back in town
