Track Name: 2nd Chance
2nd Chance

Listen baby, I ain’t here to dance
I just turned back to get a second chance…
I don’t waste my heart like fucking schoolboy
I talk with you ‘cause I’ve got nothing else to lose

While everybody dance gimme a second chance
This situation seems to me so fake, oh yeah
You could even give me another chance
Track Name: 989
989

my mind is under arrest when you don’t want me
my life’s been a mess and you say you don’t need me
never felt so lonely, I can lose my soul
the devil’s by my side, please don’t leave me alone

my heart is drunk and dark, it ain’t hope what I’m feeling
I swear it’s not my fault and you know that I mean it
I’m gonna change my life , please forgive my bones
I never meant to hurt, baby please don’t go

989
take me to sea
take me down oh please
989

down, down I’m slipping down and streets keep on calling
no rest and a gunny sack but you know how I’m living
why don’t you come along? God will bless your soul
never let me down, baby I need your love
Track Name: Smash it up
Smash It Up

I don’t know what I’ve got
I swear you cross my heart
can’t find peace inside me
‘till I’ll smash you up
there’s no good place to be
other countries to move in
I’ll find you everywhere you’re gonna hide

oh no! I can’t stand to see your snout anymore
oh yeah! I’m blastin’ my fuckin’ life


yeah yeah you gonna smash it up
yeah yeah we gonna break it up
yeah yeah we gonna smash it up!

we’re living under command
it’s so hard to see an end
and someone gotta manage to make it last
c’mon hurry up join me!
no other way to be?
They’ll catch us everywhere we’re gonna hide

oh no! I don’t wanna smell your stink anymore
oh yeah! they’re blastin’ our fuckin’ life


yeah yeah you gonna smash it up
yeah yeah we gonna break it up
yeah yeah we gonna smash it up

yeah yeah we gonna smash it up
yeah yeah we gonna break it up
yeah yeah we gonna smash it up!
Track Name: once, twice, millions of times
Once, Twice, Millions Of Times

well I told you once
then I told you twice
and we spoke about it
millions of times

smiling, crying and riding
I don’t know the sense of it all
but we’ve gotta do it more and more

sure I ain’t gonna feel so fucked up anymore
I don’t wanna get out through that door

when we talk we don’t listen
and we can’t be so kind
I wanna do that for the rest of my life
living just to free my mind
so come on let’s do it all the time

I listen to the falling rain,
my heart’s driving me insane
and I’m begging the time to avoid this pain

ain’t just cloudy days
when the sun was bright
sparks in my soul!!!
oh yeah I felt alright
sure I ain’t gonna feel so fucked up anymore
I don’t wanna get out through that door
Track Name: All right!
ALL RIGHT!

I was sleeping on a couch then my body felt so cold
they were there all by my side when I left the world behind
I’m telling all my friends now I really have to go
but it’s all right, it’s all right don’t feel so blue

it’s all right, it’s all right, now it’s time to say goodbye
it’s all right, it’s all right, now it’s time for me to die
it’s all right, it’s all right let me go!

I’m gonna sing it out loud
hey hey
yeah scream and shout
hey hey

I’m so tired of this world, of this bitter pool of tears
I just need to take a rest and the ground will be my nest
even if the night is dark I won’t suffer any fear
it’s all right, it’s all right a light will shine
Track Name: Kneel down
Kneel Down


I wake up every morning with a bad taste in my mouth
and this fucking headache doesn’t stop to beat so hard

living, eating bullshits from the sunrise ‘till late nite
and even when I sleep I guess I can’t wait to think about it

as time’s becoming hard they use to give the dog a bone
that’s the easy way they used to know to keep control:
“what i do is not for me, what i do is just for you, gimme all
gimme more...let me drink your blood”

can’t trust in what you say can’t trust in what you do!
can’t wait for the fuckin’ time you finally move away and lose
living, eating bullshits from the sunrise ‘till late nite
all they gonna say to me: “kneel down! pray for your life!”
kneel down and bleed! (they say)
Track Name: Opportunities
OPPORTUNITIES

I’ve got a jacket of rags
I’m looking over your head
I’m going down to the city
I’ve gotta make it!

down at the station there’s a train leaving at quarter to five

my little darling don’t cry
this is the very last time
you’ll see my name in light’s
I’ve gotta make it

something gonna come, gonna come and pull me out in the stars!

someone told me not to cross the line
raised opportunities
better find it by myself
raised opportunities

I’ve got a hat full of cash
I’m driving my limousine
I swim in champagne on ice
I’ve gotta face it

digging up more money playing my electric guitar

but now I wanna come back
follow the railroad track
see you waking my bad
I’ve gotta face it

better cross the country and get back, get back to the start!

Raising opportunities
Track Name: FFR'n'R
F. F. R’n’R

I’m bored, really bored
I don’t know what to do
that’s the way I’m livin’
when I wake up I don’t feel so loose
c’mon let’s do it

fuckin’ around with my held
that’s what I’m doing
make some noise in the night
that’s the way I like it
I just wanna be nasty
deep to the bones

fucking fast r’n’r
following the masses
fucking fast r’n’r
call me master of puppets

I’m tired, really tired
I only wanna puke
I just don’t wanna live
sometimes mood’s up
much more down
this really bothers me

answer to the roll call!!
I don’t really want it!
swimming in the stream!!
I don’t really like it!
I just wanna go back
back to the bones
Track Name: Jupiter's party
Jupiter’s Party

it was a summer night
you told me that you couldn’t sleep so well
I heard i strange noise from above
somebody’s ringing at the door

“who’s there? who’s there?”
“I’m Mr. ronnie kang! some say you’d better fly
and hit the stars with me...tonite!”

oh oh oh jupiter’s party
tonite!

we stopped at “Saturn Rings”
ate some cheese and got some gasoline
I’m sucking lots of booze, chicks to choose
and than I saw the man
“who’s he? who’s?”
“he use to be the king!
now he sings his better songs
and hit the stars with me... tonite!
Track Name: Victim of the circumstances
Victim Of The Circumstances

everything I do will put me in the fire,
‘cause everything I do is turning into bad signs
all the friends around, all the girls I’ve got
are packing up their suitcase and running far away

I didn’t mean it
I didn’t want it
what can I say now?
You’ve gotta believe me

I didn’t mean it
I didn’t want it
what can I say now
I’m just another

victim of the circumstances

even my old dad says that I’m liar
‘cause all the money’s gone blowin’ up on Monday
my neighbours and my wife, all the guys in town
are pointing with their fingers asking for my head!
