Track Name: Racket Rating
RACKET RATING

Here we are again
On a scale from one up to ten
How'd you rate this band and all I’m sending you
Somewhere down below
Probably less than zero
This is where your comprehension's failing you

This music was supposed to scare
This music was supposed to scare

This music was supposed to scare
This music was supposed to scare

Halfway you were there
This racket's more than you can bare
We'll go on and on and on and on and on and on and on
Track Name: 20 Second Song
20 SECOND SONG

Think hard!
Got to get it tonight
There must be one waiting for me ...
And the hours went by, but finally:
She moved like a millionaire
But as I tried to get a grip
She kindly said to me
There's got to be
Some way to score with dignity

Well, I guess it all went wrong
Way before we got along
And this thing is way too long
For a twenty second song
In fact, this thing is twice as long
As a twenty second song
Track Name: Passing Teralfene
PASSING TERALFENE

Setting up gear in front of empty chairs
And four behind the bar
Saturday afternoon, playing open air
I know that chances are
This crowd won’t build up as the sky is turning grey

Passing Teralfene
I know it’s there because I just read the sign
Passing Teralfene
And somehow it reminds me of the shit we left behind

Been there, done this way too many times
No loss and nothing’s gained
Skipping some notes and I am glad we have
Some shelter from the rain
This will be closer to rehearsal anyway

Passing Teralfene
I know it’s there because I just read the sign
Passing Teralfene
And somehow it reminds me of the shit we left behind

Soaked to the bone, this guy in front of me
Determination got him a ‘Dance To This’ EP

Just another day for the vaults, another step to nowhere
Keeping score!
All hell breaks loose on the market square
There’s time for an encore: “Do you wanna hear some more?”

Passing Teralfene
I know it’s there because I just read the sign
Passing Teralfene
And somehow it reminds me of the shit we left behind
Track Name: 36
36

Well, it’s been 36 years since they threw me on this planet
Set me off on a doubtful start
I never tried that hard to fit in or be different
I just went along and tried to follow heart

They seemed absolutely certain that I would amount to nothing
These tests that I would never pass
Guess I proved them wrong, I flunked on total failure
Now I’m standing at the best part of the class

I’ve got two kids, there’s one more on the way
I’m married to my girlfriend, I love her the same
I got a house, a tree, a lawn
Maybe a little bit autistic (I’m okay!)
There are days that make me wonder why I’m here at all
But I know I’m doing pretty fine today

I’ve got two kids, there’s one more on the way
I’m married to my girlfriend, I love her the same
A better man she made out of me
Maybe a little bit too much into repeat
There are days that make me wonder why I’m here at all
But I know I’m doing pretty
(Yes, he’s absolutely pretty!)
Well, I know I’m doing pretty fine today
Track Name: Heroes
HEROES

We took off one day becoming heroes
The world was ours to have, there would be no mistakes
And we would walk tall and proud
The music we went for was faster and loud
Never thought about things going wrong
We stood equally strong

As time went by, we lost track of each other
Alone we went and got into the daily grind
And I can’t help it, but sometimes
I reminisce about all those days long gone by
We built up this void in our hearts
Let it all fall apart

If we could buy more time
We would stand aside
We opened up the gates and swallowed life
She caught me as I nearly fell
Defined how to make it all worthwhile

We took off one day to become heroes
A fact we just never did realize
Now we think it’s so much better
We were young, we'd live forever
She caught me as I nearly fell
These are stories to tell

If we could buy more time
We would stand aside
We opened up the gates and swallowed life
She caught me as I nearly fell
Defined how to make it all worthwhile

She caught me as I nearly fell
These are stories to tell
She gave me a reason to go on
Track Name: Joke
JOKE

You seem to think we’re stupid anyway
You want to take over this time
You know it all

This is where we stand
This could be the downfall of a scene that lives on unity
And now we just get banned
This ain’t the way to lift your credibility
You failed on this one

I know there’s need for regulations
That rule out total randomness
And what about freedom of choice?

This is where we stand
This could be the downfall of a scene that lives on unity
And now we just get banned
This ain’t the way to lift your credibility
You failed on this one

Never been more right when you said that you had to learn
Learn about the matters you decide upon
Did you ever talk to those who run the shows you’re picking on
Improve your reasoning

I’m sure you want to be taken seriously
Now you’re a joke

You failed on this one
Track Name: Like Them
LIKE THEM

Businessman is waiting for the money train to come
He cannot see the poverty and the impotence of some
The government allows it to go on for another day
Never hears any complaints

Yes, money makes the world go round, a sad and true cliché
And if you haven’t got any, well, I guess you’ll have to stay
Behind the rest with a gap so wide you’ll never pass over
Despondent with a sense of closure

The system’s rotten, has forgotten everything it said
Now it’s time, watch ‘m die
Can’t you see we’re all like them

Civilized we call ourselves so why do we act blind
This new world is aging, dementia in its mind
Society has built protected circles for the strong
The poor are always wrong

Some elected, others neglected
We’ll make history!
Can’t we stand hand in hand
Bleeding red just like them
Track Name: Ontario
ONTARIO

It’s been twenty years of making music
We’ve been through some highs, forgot the lows
We’ve settled for playing garden parties in the rain, well, so it goes
I don’t think we’d ever had the chance to
Get bigger than what we are today
We never got further than a name-drop in a nineties Wölf cd

Still we do the same
We’re there once a week to revel in stereo
Slowly turning grey
And I’m pretty sure that we never will tour Ontario

So far, so good, so what if we’re older
(Did you see No Use in … ’94, I think?)
Those were good times but as years went by, we slowly parted ways
So now it’s Apollo Radio burning
Sometimes we get paid, sometimes for free
We’re aiming for 15 songs in a 30 minute show
Reliving younger days

Still we do the same
We’re there once a week to revel in stereo
Slowly turning grey
And I’m pretty sure that we never will tour Ontario

It’s hard to tell where we’ll be going from here
We might call it quits in a couple of years
Someday we will tell our grandchildren all about the days
When we were big and all ablaze
Going for the moment doing ‘Aaah’
And still this sounds like fun

Still we do the same
We’re there once a week to revel in stereo
Slowly turning grey
And I’m pretty sure that we never will tour Ontario

Track Name: Frenzal Records (FREE DOWNLOAD!!)
FRENZAL RECORDS

Well, I was feeling kinda sad
I was alone
Had a lot of work awaiting me
I decided that I had
To take a break
So I listened to a new cd
On the cover there’s a pet food factory

Now I do wish that there were much more
Frenzal records landing on my doorstep
A reason to break away
It makes each day a better day
And I’ll press play

I cannot say I understand every song
Is there a story behind ‘bird attack’?
‘Back to the suburbs’ is the one I like the most
‘Metrognome’ or ‘Dead celebrity’
Your ‘My dearest friend’ just gets to me
'Just because it’s soap, it doesn’t mean it’s clean'

Now I do wish that there were much more
Frenzal records landing on my doorstep
A reason to break away
It makes each day a better day
And I’ll press play

And there’s a catalogue of older stuff that waits for me
I’ll move down under, is that pronounced ‘Sans Souci’?
Determined to collect them all
So I will check out the local mall
And stick ‘m on my party wall

Now I do wish that there were much more
Frenzal records landing on my doorstep
A reason to break away
It makes each day a better day
Now I do wish that there were much more
Frenzal records landing on my doorstep
A reason to break away
It makes each day a better day
And I’ll press play again
Track Name: Song For Baby Hoping To Get Laid
SONG FOR BABY, HOPING TO GET LAID

When I wake up, she is usually still asleep
And though my moves are rather cheap
It’s time that stops us to succeed

So I stumble through the day
And in the back of my mind she satisfies
My primal needs arise

And when she gets real close
I get overdosed so merrily
She’s what makes me go on a daily base
She’s heavenly
She got me where I am today
The nearest far away hideaway

And when she gets real close
I get overdosed so merrily
She’s what makes me go on a daily base
She’s heavenly
She got me where I am today
The nearest far away hideaway
Track Name: Because You're The One I Love So Dearly
BECAUSE YOU’RE THE ONE I LOVE SO DEARLY

Well I would like to brush my teeth with you
Do all the things that you want me to do
Having you for breakfast, coffee too
And let time pass
I’m just your pain in the ass

Giving you a call
While I’ve got nothing to say at all
Telling you the news
And all the things you already knew
Single bed for two
Imagine what we could do

That’s me in the corner
Quoting your favourite band
Losing my ambition to use my hand
In the place where you live is where you'd rather stand
You let time pass
I’m still your pain in the ass (Yep!)

I will do for you
Anything you want me to
I will be your clown
When you want to smack me down
Would you share my name
And join the hall of shame

We could marry too
If it’s alright with you
Would you share my name
And join the hall of shame
Track Name: Carry On
CARRY ON

When you’re down and there’s nothing to lose
Sick and tired of the daily abuse
Don’t know how to fuse and light up inside
So these walls make a prison of life
You’re fed up with the pain and the strife
How you’re supposed to go on and never can hide

Carry on, carry on
There will be someone to guide you
Carry on, carry on
Let it all go peacefully

When you feel like you’re left all alone
Out of reason and sorrow has grown
Why should you hold on to another day
Crash and burn out, it’s bound to fall down
Could it be there is no one around
Hard to see the dark light up on your way

Carry on, carry on
There will be someone to guide you
Carry on, carry on
Let it all go peacefully

Left behind or stepped out of this race
Broke down or just a change of pace
You know you are just as important as anyone
It might take some time to
Get yourself together
Take all the time you need
There’s no reason for perfection
You don’t have to be complete
And the good do last
Your sorrow’s in the past
Just take a look around you and you just might see

Carry on, carry on
There will be someone to guide you
Carry on, carry on
Let it all go peacefully
Track Name: Wasted
WASTED

Well, I’ve been around some time now, some say I’m getting old
And I’ll never claim to be a wiser man, so uncontrolled
I am spitting out frustrations in this song
And I will hold on to the ones I trust to take over control

Hey, I don’t believe in politics and the assholes it provides
They all talk the same and in the end it’s hard to see they tried
So I decided not to notice but I simply can’t deny
It always gets to me, I run but I can’t hide

And there’s always something you can do
But this is a loss for words and I’m heading for oblivion as long
As long as I am wasted

Well, you know, I do appreciate the little things we do
And I read about global warming, yes, I really think it’s true
Let’s all hope this place is filled with good hearted people
Because I don’t think heating up will pull us through

And there’s always something you can do
But this is a loss for words and I’m heading for oblivion as long
As long as I am wasted

You thought the sky to be your limit
It must have hurt to see the bubble burst
Watching all you gambled for heading for the worst
And I will simply play another verse

I just read in the papers that the money’s gone
And so we’ll be hoping that nothing breaks, no rivers overflow
We’ll be filing charges because all the roads are filled with holes
What you’re selling, I don’t want to know

And there’s always something you can do
But this is a loss for words and I’m heading for oblivion as long
As long as I am wasted

Yes, there’s always something you can do
But this is a loss for words and I’m heading for oblivion as long
As long as I am wasted
Track Name: Starchild (for Wout)
STARCHILD (FOR WOUT)

I don’t always know what I should do and how to react
To things you do and stuff you talk about
Sometimes we get stuck in conversations, we try to let go
Often it takes some time to work it out

I will try
To be there when you need me to
I’ll help you on your way
I know sometimes
You will feel like I’m on the other side
But I hope you know that I’ll love you just the same

I hope the world will treat you kindly
And lets you go where you go
But know that things will go wrong now and then
I promise you that

I will try
To be there when you need me to
I’ll help you on your way
I know sometimes
You will feel like I’m on the other side
But I hope you know that I’ll love you just the same
Track Name: Decade
DECADE

And after these ten years I still know
What we said and how it all began
Laying my head down, dreaming
Never thought to make a back-up plan

Setting goals and watching them all fade away
The slightest glimpse of hope, another better day
A blinking dot appearing on the screen

Look at where we are today
This is more than we had hoped for
Grateful
Thank you for what you had to do to make this family grow
