All you thought you knew wasn't true. But in the end, you saw through. Are you all torn out of shape? Cause if you are I've got tape. All you thought you knew. Couldn't cut the mustard. But in the end... you were such a buster. All you all sent out of stamps? Cause if you are I've got spam. Now is the time, for us to dance. Then we can go home and get in your neck. When will you sing to me this night or next? I cannot wait some more give me your best! Now is the time for us to dance. Then we can go home and get in your neck.

I got your number in my pocket it's calling today. So when I ring pick up the phone cause I got something to say. I'm going coocoo crazy as a bird in a box. Cause your the one that I desire and I'm ready to pop. You like a kamikazee hussy with a full throttle heart. And you turn our hanky panky into a work of art. So where are yo-o-o-o-o-ou I don't see you know how. I gotta get you in my vision and the momment is now. I'll take a taxi to your flat we'll sip on Earl Grey tea. Throw the TV out the window cause it's just you and me. Fly up on you gotta eye you like a hawk on a mouse. And sing hey diddle diddle as you take off your blouse. So who are you? (I need to know you right now). Let's turn the heat up in this spot because it's time to get down. So who are you? (I need to get with you soon). And all this beeping is the smoke detector up in your room. I got your number in my phone and it is dialing itself, got no control I'm at it's mercy and it's making me melt. I'm going oo oo crazy as a break dancing ghost. Your underwater dynamite leaves all my fish comatose. I'll serenade you underneath you window la la la la If you lean out to far to see me I'll catch you when you fall. It's hard to stop now, your like a drug I can't quit. I'm overdosing on the potion that I know I won't kick. Your like an evanescent comet buring up in the sky. Out atmospheric pressure's passionate and that is no lie. So tell the truth, you gonna want me this way? Because I need you, gonna get you and there's no more to say. So who are you? So who are you? (I need to know you right now). Let's turn the heat up in this spot because it's time to get down. So who are you? (I need to get with you soon). And all this beeping is the smoke detector up in your room.

The time is after the after time bring yourself. The time is after the after time bring yourself. The time is after the after time bring yourself. The time is after the after time bring yourself. If you want me to strain what friendship remains these words are salt statues in rain If you want to converse as if it's a game these words are tokens in your arcade Ambassador toiling subterannean fantastic actions flash pan man. Heartach betraying reactionary mayhem Oh such a brain, electrical strange. The life is after the after life bring a friend. The life is after the after life bring a friend. If you want to obtain secrets from the mainframe the passwords your deepest hidden pain. If you want to portray a much richer display you got to exit your pensive layer Temperature boiling celcius elevate. Fantastic plan you flash pan man. Free spirit minister enter police state. Oh such a brain, electrical strange. The time is after the after time bring yourself.

Hang-Ups 03:25
Hangups can you chill a little bit? Been a strange life I admit. New Order on the acid test. Heros and villians on your TV set. Break-downs can you stall just a little bit? Grease and spit on the midnight shift. Open season on the polygraph. Sticks and stones and shredded maps. Getting over you has been difficult. Cause I'm faking it through my future. Hangups can you harmonize a dial tone? Been feeling out of place within my own bones. Kool-Aid on a sidewalk stand, flashback static casting shadows on our plan. Hangover on tomorrows hit list. Shadow Boxing with the angel of death. Reformation for the old routine. Unfamiliar faces on the same old screen. Getting over you has been difficult. Cause I'm faking it through my future. Can't carry you around with me no more. Time to let you go.

When I fall apart...In my mind. Will you catch me when...I fall from my cloud? Are you sleeping? Walking through your day a zombie unable to open your eyes? When you fall apart...In your mind. I will cut your strings...so your puppet can fall freely. Are you hung up on all your goals? Glory, riches and plastic things. (Are you hung up?)

Klairvoyance 03:31
Konrad "Klairvoyance" --------------------------------------------------------- I can see the future. I can see the future. I can see the future, the planets OK. Never mind what they say on T.V. I can see the future. I can see the future. "I must confess, I'm a bit psychic"] Our parents did a pretty good job. Teachers did a mighty fine job, politicians did a swell job... Of ruining our planet. Calling all Star Children (calling all Star Children) Calling all Star Children (calling all Star Children) [sample: "we're gonna live!"] Calling all Star Children, this is the fight. Calling all the future boys and girls. Calling all Star Children this is the path. We can save our future, our future's not dead. Grow outside our past. Now is time for revolution. I can see the future. I can see the future. "I know what's gonna happen" Calling the future, this is our fight, every revolution begins inside. Kick kick kick that kickstart heart. Calling all shadows banned from light. Calling all Star Children. Countdown to Armageddon. 4-3-2-1 "goodbye" Government did a fine job. Industry did a good job. Media did a swell job. Of poisoning our planet. "Winning!" Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children "I wanna tell 'bout tomorrow"] Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children (I can see the future) Calling all Star Children "I wanna tell 'bout tomorrow"]

Sticks and Stones can break your bones, but words hurt most of all. Bruises heal, blood can clot. What you say, penetrates the heart. On the phone you broke the mold until your crowd grew near. Starving eyes feeding blind what you take is what you give away. Customary to disguise you underneath a cloud. Customary to disguise you underneath a cloud. Customary to disguise you underneath a cloud. Customary to disguise you underneath a cloud. There's a time clock cloggin' my veins. My heart is upset, blockin' my brain. Help me. I'm thinking in circles. Dizzy and lost and I'm hopping the hurdles. It's times like these that people feel sad. People feel happy it's all a tapestry. It's signs like these that balance the act. Challange the particulars sour the task.

When I wake up early in the morning, Lift my head, I'm still yawning. When I'm in the middle of a dream Stay in bed, float up stream. Please don't wake me, no don't shake me Leave me where I am I'm only sleeping. Everybody seems to think I'm lazy I don't mind, I think they're crazy. Running everywhere at such a speed Till they find, there's no need. Please don't spoil my day I'm miles away And after all I'm only sleeping. Keeping an eye on the world going by my window Taking my time. Lying there staring at the ceiling Waiting for a sleepy feeling. Please don't spoil my day I'm miles away And after all I'm only sleeping.

There's a silence inside us all. There's a silence inside us all. It's moving through and through. It's moving through and through. Take your chances and head the call, another day to lose. The cracks climb higher sinking stories, suitcase suffocation owns, silly little glories, of your kingless empty thrones. Roll your dice up against the wall. Roll your dice up against the wall. Gambling away tomorrow's day. Gambling away tomorrow's day. Theres a primal inside us all I heard it on the news. A week ago or someday so when clicking clicks were flippin' slow Through vast past channels future show I witnessed Twilight Zones. May the chips where they will to fall. May the chips where they will to fall. Were tunneling to doom make room. Theres a tiger out on the prowl, I hear it's never loose. But I can't track no silent ghost cause phantom power left me mostly, on the out-mode compost regions of the rat race. Theres a siren inside us all. Theres a siren inside us all. It's whispering today. It's whispering today. Been feeling quite distant these days, coming in waves upon waves upon waves. Cappin' potion bottle tops tip top shapeshifting global cops, got lonely villians hoppin' scotch from the paper chase.

Breaking ups the easiest part it's the longing. Holding you hostage to dawn. When you finally pass out, the dreams their haunting, eating you conscious apart. I'll see you out on the street with you phantom desire, only a whisper would do your a holler. Tearing me down with love killing eyes, feeding my heart to the ants. Tearing down's the easiest part, it's the building. Trapped in our temple of doom. I rewrote all the blueprints but your busy spinning, in somebody else's cacoon. I'll see you out on the town with you frigid "move-on" It's only a heart I think it's time for some thawin' Can't you give in you lonesome terrible child? We both know this aint your true self. I'll see you in another lifetime, one can only hope. It's very clear I'm in a bind here dear, my heart done got itself broke. I'll see you in another space and time, or so I pray. It's very clear we made a big mistake, were at the end of days. Breaking up's the easiest part (it's the longing). Breaking up's the easiest part (it's the longing). Breaking up's the easiest part (it's the longing). I'll see you out on the town with you poisonous friends. Instant death would do your torture. Tearing me down with your hearless disguise, we both know this isn't the end. I'll see you out on the street with you poisonous friends. Instant death would do your torture. Tearing me down with your heartless disguise, we both know this isn't the end.

Luxury of wishful peace, it's a catch and release. Broken wings natures fang. Oldness comes to those who waste time waiting away, for the day to make it's case. Look into the sky, sky is an eye. Spying your mind. It's a habit of repeat patterns developing. Method acting all night long. Luxary of mindful peace tranquilizer the beast. Turning all these off days on. Look into the night. Swallowing you mind. Luxury of wishful peace. Timeless war. It's all the little things that break my heart. With or without a dagger. Peace everlasting anger. Light House guide us to the shore. Luxury of mindful days these apocalyptic ways. Witnessing natures fang. Shadows come to those who chase setting suns across the plains, in pursuit of fickle dreams. Look into your eyes, mirrors own disguise. Who are you? Luxury of wishful peace, timeless war. It's all the little things that break my heart. With or without a dagger, peace everlasting anger. Light House guide us to the shore. Luxury of wishful peace, timeless war. It's all the little things that break my heart. With or without a dagger, peace everlasting anger. Light House guide us to the shore.
