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

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

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

36 01:22
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

Heroes 03:07
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

Joke 02:37
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

Like Them 01:29
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

Ontario 03:21
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

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

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

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

Carry On 02:38
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

Wasted 02:15
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

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

Decade 01:40
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
