Track Name: Second best thinking
There must be something more than this,
we're going through the motions.
I just can't stand these so-called friends
and I'm not goin' social.

It's not that you're so bad
and you don't mind playing,
but all you say and do and wear
is such a bore and plain
and it slides away
slides away,
slides away, hey!,
just like all you ever got from me
and it's not so special, not so special.

It’s not enough for me, you know,
it’s not enough for me.
I've had enough of this
oh, I've never got off on the second best thinking.

These times are weird,
it's like we are all fronting
but then we don't feel anything
and I just quit with all this.
And you fade away
fade away
fade away, hey!
'cause there's something else that matters
that you really don’t know, really don’t know.

It’s not enough for me, you know,
it’s not enough for me.
I've had enough of this
oh, I've never got off on the second best thinking.
Track Name: A little bit lowly
Oh, won’t you melt for a while
and let your dripping being all around?
Heavy iron dreams
on such a light sleep
be a little bit lowly, boy,
a little bit lowly.

Everything’s over-floating,
retro-dummies are goadin’ me
but they’re only annoying me…
space and time are exploding in me.
I’ll get along, I’ll get along next time.

Don’t rely on the face of a fryin’ sun
‘cause what you feel is just
useless states of mind,
and everybody needs some money so
be a little bit lowly, boy,
a little bit lowly.

Everything’s over-floating,
retro-dummies are goadin’ me
but they’re only annoying me…
space and time are exploding in me.
I’ll get along, I’ll get along next time.

I shouldn’t be so cross…
I’ll get along, I’ll get along next time.
Track Name: Glass and paper
Feeling like it’s gonna be someday
that magical instant.
Living lies, it’s just a kind of game,
I know…

And when you ask if I’m ok
I look the other way,
I look the other way.
How I’d love to leave this town today.

Feeling like it’s gonna be somewhere…
and should I pretend
when I’m myself and no-one seems to care?
Don’t know

And if you asked me to stay
I’d look the other way,
I’d look the other way.
How I’d love to leave this town today.

I'll never ask you to change
and be me.
Don’t look the other way,
don’t look the other way.
How I’d love to leave this town today.
Track Name: Sinking
So close to the edge of the world,
feel I’m too high and too low,
and Turin lies almost dead
though keeps breathing cool air
and mystery.

Guess I gave you body and pain,
all I gave you is body and pain.
Must have swallowed some thorns
to feel this way…

Make a plea to the emperor,
he always cares but this afternoon.
It really gives me a stomach ache, a tearing break,
it steals me time until I’m late,
and everything just falls apart,
I need no clues ‘cause I know by heart
that it’s the sinner not the sin,
I close my eyes, can’t watch TV
and sordid spokesmen telling so:
“Sorry, folks, New Orleans has gone”.

Guess I gave you body and pain,
all I gave you is body and pain.
Must have swallowed some thorns
to feel this way…

I can’t be with you.

Guess I gave you body and pain,
is it worth the price we both paid?
Must have swallowed some thorns
to feel this way…

I can’t be with you.

So close to the edge of the world,
feel I’m too high and too low.
Track Name: It's always six o'clock
I, well I...
I've enjoyed my tea for an endless time
waiting,
never got for who or what, oh no! But it's ok.

Your Majesty, now I can lose my head.
Your Majesty, now I let loose my head.
Your Majesty, I'm really mad.

Who knows how it is to feign moods,
click went my soaked dumb brain,
now it's always six o'clock,
hands don't tic or toc
just shake and shake.

A friend of mine
has been sleeping all his life dreaming on inside a pot.
He's crazy!
He says he'll breathe the LA ocean air one fine day.

Your Majesty, now I can lose my head.
Your Majesty, now I let loose my head.
Your Majesty, I've always been such a card.

Who knows how it is to feign moods,
click went my soaked dumb brain,
now it's always six o'clock,
hands don't tic or toc
just shake and shake.

I'm really mad.

Who knows how it is to feign moods,
click went my soaked dumb brain,
now it's always six o'clock,
hands don't tic or toc
just shake and shake.
Track Name: The cat from Alpha Centauri
Time whispers sad lullabies,
who knows if you hear them sometimes
somewhere outside,
through the milky way…

Night. Waiting for a sign,
wishing that a falling star
which is comin’ down like a spaceship
could be you…

Why have you gone?
No-one else could find you cool like I do.
Oh, but you’ve gone,
without leaving me a farewell note to cry on.

The CIA was right
and you were just a spy,
I knew it all the time
but still I can’t stop smiling…

I want to put this flat life
on the highest roller coaster
and push it down without warning
like we used to.

Oh, since you’ve gone
I’ve been standing all alone on your hill.
Now that you’ve gone
I won’t ever meet someone like you to laugh with…

Please, come back soon,
please, come back soon,
please, come home soon.
Track Name: Crayon
Can I sing this
though it has no lyrics?
It's just useless and it's not worth a dime
this worn-out game of rhymes.
I need better words
than these weasel ones,
not mine, not today,
something making
whatever kind of sense.
Something that’s not a fake.

So I start sinking again,
no reason for it.
Somewhere hiding in the back of my mind
a crayon memory.
I tried hard to be someone else,
now I love my failings,
and I know
that I need them
I just need them all.
They make me real and not fade away.
I love,
I love them all.

And you’re right, I know,
I’m not much more than anyone;
I could care less,
well, I’ll work on it...
Guess I'll paint myself anew someday.
Track Name: Chameleon
It’s ok, it didn’t work the way we both hoped to
‘cause I was so green, yeah, I was so green.
But I’m not too blue anymore, it's really gone,
just a bit browned off, just a bit browned off.

How can you do it? I can’t explain.
How can you do it? I can’t explain.
How can you do it? I can’t explain
but I feel like it is gonna happen again.

I’m a chameleon,
I can change my soul colour,
disappear in front of you,
I can do it anytime I wanna.

I still turn red when I think how I was yellow
and out of words, yeah I ran out of words.
Whiter than the brightest white, now I'm in the pink
and ready to go so ready to go.

How can you do it? I can’t explain.
How can you do it? I can’t explain.
How can you do it? I can’t explain
but I feel like it is gonna happen again.

I’m a chameleon,
I can change my soul colour,
disappear in front of you,
I can do it anytime I wanna.

Won’t you stay?

I’m a chameleon,
I can change my soul colour,
disappear in front of you,
I can do it anytime I wanna
and I wanna now.
Track Name: Never too late (to get insane)
I wonder if that's my mind...
yeah, I wonder if that is still my mind.
Oh, come on,
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late.

I wonder
how everyday I played alone
while all my life said no.
There is a place left behind,
that's where the wind howls inside,
grey clouds hang from the ceiling,
I'm just fine,
but you dont know how it is
to be gone.
It's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late.

I wonder if that's my mind...
yeah, I wonder if that is still my mind.
oh, well
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late to get insane
it's never too late.
Track Name: The world is waiting
I need a happy thought
to not grow old and cold
and not to be the same,
because something went wrong
with my last plan to stop
and make up for lost days.

And all time is wasting,
there’s a world that is waiting just for me.

Paper pieces where
I scribbled all my life
with words that I once loved
turn into swans,
paper swans
on a fake wood lake.

And my time is wasting,
there’s a world that is waiting just for me.

Here I come,
here I come.

I need a happy thought
that makes me stay
and not ask ten years back.
So time come down slowly
slowly, please, slowly on me.
A feather upon my fate.

‘Cause it’s all ‘bout time wasting,
there’s a world that is waiting just for me.

Here I come,
here I come,
just before I wake.
