I'm staring at the sunlight looking so white and pale Time is fleeting slowly when you are already dead Lost in a desert island that is filled with nothingness I wish I could fall asleep and never wake up again I'm just another drifter whose sky is crimson red I'm all dressed up as always with nowhere else to land The message in my bottle sends an S.O.S. I cross my fingers to be heard but only silence remains I'm waiting by the lighthouse for someone to guide me But nothing is at the horizon but an endless sea I’m whistling again but nobody is answering Death feels like a scourge yet it looks so appealing A thousand shadows take shape in the sand But none comes to life swept by the wind I'm digging a hole and I'm smiling I'm giving it a rest by burying myself The grim reaper is coming but just seconds away The hopeful coward I am turns his back on the ashtray But it is just a matter of time before I drop the curtain To take my well-deserved post mortem vacation

My dear little diary Would you like a slice of my life As I'm confined to my bed waiting to blow the candles out There is a bird of ill omen over my shoulder That is looking forward to celebrate a long lost season The sun is shining but I feel so cold inside Youth happens only once in a lifetime I'm having a psycho beach nightmare Trapped in a white straightjacket Another endless cruel scummer Every day is like a Sunday turning in decades Where regrets and guilt keep me tightened by the legs I have been dreaming of a world where there was no one around But while I'm wasting my days I am missing all the fun Won't someone rescue me from my self-made tower? If you look beyond the trees will you catch my fall? I'm having a psycho beach nightmare Trapped in a white straightjacket Another endless cruel scummer I'm having a psycho beach nightmare Sleepwalking in a casket Another useless cruel scummer I'm staring at them passing by They are running scared but I wonder why They cannot see me through my window shades Just like I'm not even there I have been dreaming my life instead of living it But the dreams have turned sour because frogs don't make princes I have been counting my hours instead of making my hours count But when your hours are so long you can't help but see them pass I can't wait to get old to finish this once for all But if I ever get there will I be alone?

Let me introduce you my best friend It has no name but lives in my right hand As it closed its doors it has opened A brand new world of then unknown games I lived my fantasies by procuration Seeing pictures of bodies in motion Imagining I was inside the screen I closed my eyes and started to scream I might just do it once or I might do it twice It is supposed to be warm but it is as cold as ice Swimming in trouble waters while flooding in white I'm fainting in formaldehyde I'm surfing on a gravestone when I reach the seventh sky If I sharpen my own bone I might become deaf of blind Every night the temperature is rising In the dark when everyone is sleeping I wake the snake without making a noise Birds of a feather hide when they die Within minutes my heart is at full speed I'm dripping with sweat Waves are coming after me I want to sink but when I'm about to explode The warmness drops as fast as it rose There is nobody here There is nobody there The giant rises up but I don't understand Why my nasty habits have to stay a secret How can something so good be so bad? I'm surfing on a gravestone when I reach the seventh sky If I sharpen my own bone I might become deaf of blind I'm surfing on a gravestone when I'm flying high towards the forbidden zone As my wings begin to fry They say that if I don't go straight My dirty soul will burn in hell But why can't I prevent myself To do it all over again and again? I stand in desolation after the earthquake A short-term effect indeed but somehow I can't wait To fill the emptiness that is inside me once again And if this is a sin then I will be damned

He is the man that commands With the fist on the table But he knows he cannot control The people living in the bottle Telling him to fill himself He feeds his disease like a sponge And he wrings it out upon everyone's eyes So let's raise our glass to the man As his grapes have turned to wine She is the one who does the dishes Her hands are full of stiches but it's okay She used to dream of better days But she stays quiet while wiping the floor That is wet from her tears And when she awakes late at night She does not turn on the lights The kitchen calls her And she goes down sleepwalking Trying to fix the cracks on the walls And we are all together Biting the hands or our beloved genitors One hell of a feast... Her world is a playground filled with sand Everybody has a hand in their pocket Her head is cut but she is still bitching Complaining and winning about all that she needs But too much is never enough Even when times are rough Everything has a price When there is a penny on her eye You never see it twice And we are all together Pulling the hair of our foster sister One hell of a feast... The tiny minds in the box Told him to take a little walk by the trees So he flew high to get there Meeting shapes in the air near the woods With floating feet On his way he reached a greenhouse With some other butterflies With flowers in their hair But there were bars at the windows So he could not reach the sky And we are all together Smoking the brain of our mental elder And now the middle boy has his revenge And we are all together I'm finally getting the attention I deserve One hell of a feast with my deadbeat relatives Home is where the heart is and it is finger-licking good

I have built many stone castles With walls of bricks surrounding me And as if desperation was not enough Nature has played a trick on me I wear my true colors with pride But I'm the only one to know I am not raising my flag high Because I'm an odd against the odds I have never slept with a teddy bear I never got the playful eyes I never threw balls in high school I just could only play with mine I never had a taste for lemons I have always preferred bananas I'd sink my teeth in tighty-whities More than in a padded Wonderbra I'm surrounded by wolves I'm seeing them everywhere But I do have my cross to bear Why do things are so unfair? I'm growing on frustration On hunger and obsession I have been starving for the passion fruit I feel a full moon rising My flesh grows out of my skin But I can't even go berserk out with the dogs They laugh at me and turn their back but I don't always mind It is unfortunate but sometimes the view is better from behind But while they are out having a ball I am having none So here I am with my duck in the hand Waiting for an invitation to the promised land I was the Jestermaster The Blondie Zombie Rocker But I'm out of the rainbow while they are all so dummy I'm not the typi-call boy I'm not coming from next door So I'm dancing with myself with the tail between my legs I bear the curse of the Queerwolf

Alien Nation 04:18
When you are anonymous and strange You don't know how to act to socialize You are ill at ease and out of place But somehow attracted by the other side You wish you were somebody else To drown yourself among the faceless sheeps In a jungle of monkey brains Because we are all brothers under the skin I know I don't belong in the computerized land There is no way I can like in a world like this Will they awake before they die? Everyone looks so asleep in the alien nation You try so hard to play the game And pretend you are like anybody else But while fitting in you are afraid That they find out what is hidden in the shell You can't face them with your own eyes But you are not alone to wear a mask Everyone is wearing a disguise We all have a knife hidden behind our back I know I don't belong in the computerized land There is no way I can like in a world like this Will they awake before they die? Everyone looks so asleep in the alien nation Sinking in a walkabout In a sea of noise and silent shouts Going on with the flow My rocket ship is sinking low I can't stand this masquerade It feels like outer space

The Candyman 05:29
If I call your name three times Will you appear before my eyes? My sugar daddy Let me sit on your knees Your magic wand will wipe away my tears Won't you fill the void that is in my heart? Show me the milky way After placing your cherry in my donut Read me a happy fairy tale Then take me to my little bed Your strong and warm arms make me melt I kiss you goodnight my Candyman Would you come in my chocolate factory? There is no sign that says "exit only" Please be as tender as a butter knife The entrance might be tight But it is hunky dory Your key is right Won't you please take my tiny hand? I have won the golden ticket Let me ride your carousel My silky cotton Candyman Would you brush my teeth until they are white and clean After I have tasted the juicy cream From the finger-licking cone that is dripping Make me feel young again I want to be your child Take me to wonderland But don't you take me home just before midnight C.A.N.D.Y.M.A.N. That is how I call my Candyman He is not mine but let's pretend I give him head until he is dead

When I saw you There was magic in the air But time was floating in despair As I believed I would never risk the bet to fall in love Because hearts are fragile toys Still unopened Hello? Where are you gone? I know you are there but you don't recall So close yet so far away It's all over Before it even began Will I see you again where you used to go? I close my eyes And the only thing I see Is your hollow arms pulling me from the shadows Hello? Where are you gone? I know you are there but you don't recall So close yet so far away I don't know who you are I can't hear the beating of your heart Wishing me a good mourning skin And I'm chasing your phantom in the breeze Running after another fancy dream You have vanished into the unknown long ago And I'm again on my own tonight I cannot breathe because I know you are somewhere While I'm climbing inside an empty bed

What's the weather like today? Will the sun rise on my private hell When I wake up on the wrong side of the bed I drink some caffeine while I'm knowing The sword of Damocles is hanging over my head I'm hiding from the boogeyman He used to hide under my bed He is my own worst enemy When there is mental backup in progress Do not disturb my room I put my blinkers on and try to chase The dark side of the mood It is all right but it is all wrong There is a funny bitter taste beneath my tongue Got marks on the face that no one can see I need your help yet don't you dare to bother me When I question my sanity It replies occasionally And it is as ugly as it can be When there is mental backup in progress Do not disturb my room I put my blinkers on and try to chase The dark side of the mood I have a mind for all seasons The sky up there is shining bright But the thunderdome is just in sight The drums are pounding in my ear Reminding me my greatest fears But nevermind it's okay It does not matter anyway But just a blink against the wall And here we go again
10.
My mind is haunted by the people in the mirror Making faces to them does not hide the sorrow once for all There was a time I thought I could have turned my back But they keep me chained And they prevent me to live my own life Sometimes I don't hear them and I wonder if they are really gone But they never leave They are in the corner waiting to come back for more I only wish i could leave them all behind Before they catch me and bury me six feet under the ground They are marching like an army They are here to hunt me down And I'm tired of fighting "Come out and play" The skeletons in my closet "You can't escape" The skeletons in my closet "Give up" they say The skeletons in my closet “And join the other side We have candies” I'm hearing footsteps on the floor They are waiting behind the door Don't make a sound Don't even move Just let the silence fill this room But they get smarter and cleverer and they learn fast And they begin to know me really well by now "We are coming out to get you" Just go away

I'm on the edge of the gallows every dawn I got to get up on my feet I'm still on a cloud while dragging chain and ball Another soul trapped in the wheels Life is killing me And through the light I see The dark at the end of the tunnel Pass the gun around And leave in an empty sound With one shot of routine roulette I'm leaving my brain at the door from nine to five But somehow this is keeping me safe And it would not matter if you were by my side Running in circles like slaves Life is killing me And through the light I see The dark at the end of the tunnel Pass the gun around And leave in an empty sound With one shot of routine roulette Chasing the summer sun and waiting to die Counting the days and swirling round and around...
