Track Name: Genuine Taste
She's got a genuine taste
She's like a cold Stella Artois

She's like a homemade brew
Track Name: (She's Just a) Wonderful Nightmare
Stacks of stolen kisses through the night
The rain just came down unnanounced
Packs of cigars left to drown
He was haunted by the sighting of her shadow

Girl just give me one more night
So i can work this on my mind
I think this time i'll get it right
And if i don't we'll skip the stoplights

And then the sun came up through the back of the tide
Relentless and unforgiving
After all that time
And resorted lies
His mind just wasn't conceiving
He had the bad shot
In the russian roulette
It was a bad dream
Or a wonderful nightmare
She's just a bad dream
But such a wonderful nightmare

Dozed off by the sleeping pills
His mind wandered through the dreams
Couldn't find the good old thrill
He used to see out in the streets

Many faces of the same - feeling
Had him yelling in the bathroom
Throwing bottles at the sea oh oh
He just wasn't the same man

It's more than mere lust, he put reason first
But she was already in the altar
Deep inside his heart, his mind, his soul

But not his body

It was a bad dream
Or a wonderful nightmare
She's just a bad dream
But such a wonderful nightmare
A bad dream
Or a wonderful nightmare
Yeah she's a bad dream
A wonderful nightmare
Track Name: Rock-o-Plane
Down in a devilishly decoured theme park
You saw a face in between the cracks
Of the rock-o-plane
Wish you had something else to say other than
An old and known cliche
But it was alright
Yeah it was alright

She's just like a ride on the rollercoaster
And you got your hands
On her thighs

Her hair is on the wind on the highest drop down
That scene just won't get out of your mind
So tell me boy
What else is there to wish for?
I feel like i've reached
The peak


Back in the devilishly decoured theme park
Hoped to find her in between the cracks
Of the rock-o-plane
Or maybe some other ride this time
But she just wasn't anywhere to be found
And it was not alright
No not at all

She was just like a ride on the rollercoaster
And you had your hands on her thighs
But suddenly you begin to wonder if
She was ever really there
Or was it just a trick
Played on you by your mind

So tell me god
Was it all just a daydream?

I hope you do reply and the answer is a no
I just wanted something
Other than this
It's wearing me out
Track Name: Caroline
I am gonna build a big house
And hide all of my worries inside
So i can live free of them
Within the rest of the world
The walls are thick and made of tar
Just like the ones around your heart
Caroline

There are no windows
Nor light
To ever shine
And when the mail man comes over
Bringing letters of disorder
I'll lock the door


Under the foundations
There's a graveyard
It holds the souls
Of all of those who ever disrupted me
And made me believe
That i'm not good enough
Well am i good enough?
For you

whoo whoo
whoo whoo
whooo

Well am i good enough?
Am i good enough for you?

whoo whoo
whoo whoo
whooo

I am good enough
Yeah i'm good enough
For you
Track Name: Her Ensemble
You threw the cards on the floor
The dices on the wall
Ripped off ya shiirt
Just to show her your body
Turned her round in a full moon
Blew her scent across the room
Made everyone run down to the lobby
And her ensemble was just outta this world

The candle burned at both sides
Reciprocal enchant
She saw the moon
At the corner of his eyes
Started with a slow grind
Ended in a hucklebuck
And her ensemble caught everyone's eyes
To the morals circumvent
He just wasn't content
Knew that he could have so much more
If you dont know what i meant
The conventions he bent
Did what everyone would know as wrong

She knew
That there
Could be another one
She suspected that he was involved with another one but she wasn't sure

Until she saw her running down the stairs
And the resemblance to her ensemble
Was a disgrace

The absence of
Broken glasses by the end of the night
Would be unnaceptable in her mind
To relief the pain
She would make a scene
And so she did.
Track Name: Beautiful Endeavour
Softly toned voice
Tickles your inner thighs

Softly toned voice
Tickles your inner thighs

He does the doo to the wop to the metaphorical enchant of man and woman
He takes his hat off as you walk by

Softly toned voice
Kisses your inner thighs

Softly toned voice
Kisses your inner thighs

And then it jumps in your ears with the bang of
A thousand fireworks
Although it hurts a lot
You would never think about asking him to stop
The roar of a lion and the beauty of a tulip
In a city of debauchery and sin

Soflty toned voice
Tells you a lie

Softly toned voice
Keeps you alive

He does that cheeky stunt that surely looks improper
Then blows the smoke off the long barrel revolver

Softly toned voice
A demon in disguise

Softly toned voice
Girl, take my advice

He's not the kind of guy you would fall for
But that's exactly what attracts you
A glass of white wine, a full moon night
It's a beautiful endeavour
Track Name: Old Lover
Flowers falling in our heads
We didn't want to be anywhere else
It all felt like a dream i didn't want to wake up from

The sun was up until it came down
Never missing your old hometown
If our bodies won't last forever
At least we can create something that will

Oh yes it will
Ohh oh oh

Strolling down your street it felt like
Everything had fallen in place
So many years of suffering they were
Finally together again

And do you still remember my last name?
Or my birthday or my cats name?
Is your field of work still the same?
Are you still terrified of planes?
Old lover

So many questions and no time
So much to say yet nothing to be heard
Track Name: Paramount Love
Sucked up by the sea and
Suffering to breathe
Unravelled by the breeze of sunday
Fucking goddamn how i wanna hold your hand
My love
I might leave tomorrow

Feelings are to leak, girl
I can barely speak
Please dont leave me without the notion
That you might feel something
Even just a little something
Or me

And you're the very breeze
That made me sick
When i left
The shower
You're that lower ceiling that i'd
Love to hit my head on

But now you're sucked up by the sea and
Suffering to breathe
Unravelled by the coming of monday
Fucking goddamn how i want you to get out
Of my life

To paint a
Portrait of the feelings
I could never show you
I would need a gallon of dark ink
Do i ever come across your mind were we
Anything more than mere strangers?
Are these just the symptoms of a paramount love?
Am i transcedently dependent of you
Girl
Track Name: I'm Gonna Cry You a River, Gurl
Could never get to you
It always comes back around

Could never get to you
It always comes back around

In your eyes i see
The reflection of who i wanna be
Or i wish i was

But your mouth tells me
To go away
And your body says the same

Could never give it to you
Senselessness in a box wrapped in blue
A gift i could never ask for
Track Name: 19 Year Old Sunset
Could never get to you
It always comes back around

Could never get to you
It always comes back around

And its not my fault

In your eyes i see
The reflection of who
I wanna be
Or i wish i was
But your mouth tells me
To go away
And your body says the same

In your eyes i see
A 19 year old sunset
I can't look away
Why did you have to leave?
Do these people make you feel okay?

Could never give it to you
Senselessness in a box wrapped in blue
A gift i could never ask for
