I was a teenage Frankenstein I have been improvising since I came to life I was always one of a kind Pieces of my mind were found in an old garbage can No no no! I ain't got no brainstorming disorder Yeah yeah yeah! My head is a rollercoaster They say weird is negative when you are on the inside But we are what we are I say weird is relative when you are on the outside Because two heads are better than one I have got spider webs inside my soul Woven to both sides of my anxiety It is all for me and one for all Because I have many manes but many more identities No no no! The vicious circle never ends Yeah yeah yeah! Tonight I will be somebody else They say weird is negative when you are on the inside But we are what we are I say weird is relative when you are on the outside Because two heads are better than one I eat phobia for breakfast Paranoia for lunch Schizophrenia for dinner I keep my insanity fed I throw it up and go to bed No no no! I'm not a raving lunatic Yeah yeah yeah! But if we are we are loving it

Hey! Have you ever dreamed of being the big next thing? Hey! Don't you wanna be the king of the silver screen? You wanna see the other side So take a seat and watch What you will see will blow your mind Now here I am Your brand new friend Sit back and let me take command Just be carefree You can trust me I will show you things you have never seen It is the chance of your life It won't happen twice You can never have another slice I am your terror vision Blowing up your video It's a sick world of zombies You are my little puppet till I fade to black Here today and gone tomorrow Like a shooting star Be careful what you wish for You might go too far You wanna be somebody too Just let your body talk And I will see what I can do Come and turn me on You have waited so long I will penetrate your soul to the bone You are down on your knees You do what I please And you never miss a drop of it You are remote-controlled You swallow me whole And I fulfill your bottomless hole I am your terror vision Blowing up your video It's a sick world of zombies Welcome to my private show I will take you somewhere beyond the rainbow And you will drown among the pack You are my little puppet till I fade to black I will swallow you in and I will swallow you out And when I'm done with you I will beat you to the ground You're just one in a million I have marked with my wound Do you remember hearing your one-day-old heroes on the radio? It was a long time ago

Long-haired and pale white-skinned With my horns up I'm dressed to kill I'm gonna make my revolution Last night I have sold my soul To all the gods of rock and roll I only want their absolution Finally I will spread my wings I will fly among my fallen kings I am a loser but I will win This is where it all begins I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue I'm gonna live my dreams I will drown in dollar bills I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue I will be your lollipop Someday I will make it to the top All the kids on the streets I will treat them all with all my tricks They want nothing but a ghoul time And when one day I will be rich I will hold them all on a silver leash And I won't give them a dime When there is a will there is a way Who dares wins - that is what they say I will do anything it takes Against the world I will stand I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue With mascara and lipstick I will be the cream of the creep I will be the prettiest boy in the morgue All the rebels will yell Until I give them a proper farewell I will be your teenage poster boy The angry youth will be my toy I will sell them lots of hate I know they just can't wait Let's sing this anthem till we drop Dead! Remember what the wise man said Rock and roll leads you straight to hell But we will all bite the dust someday The grim reaper is gonna wait

It is just another day My jingle bells are ringing all the way The curtain falls And I'm wearing a mask for everyone I am the clown I have learned to smile when my world is coming down I will entertain Life is nothing more than a good game I have rolled the dice and could not roll it twice And all the king's men scream my name in laughter From the hereafter I'm Comedy When the tears are falling I am laughing I'm Tragedy When the horns are playing I am crying Duality Hand in hand together we are one Heads I live tails I die I have painted my heart and soul in black and white My heart is a spade I play my part in this theatre of pain With all my lies I became the master of disguise I am the fool You are the kings and I live up to your rules But I'm not the mime I am the wasp among the flies I have dealt the cards I will send you my regards And all the king's men scream my name in laughter From the hereafter I'm Comedy When the tears are falling I am laughing I'm Tragedy When the horns are playing I am crying Duality Hand in hand together we are one Heads I live tails I die I hold my hands up to the sky Will I get an answer in time? I sing the soundtrack of my soap opera Half sitcom and half drama When come the end credits Will another season be broadcast on TV? Is there a four-leaf clover in the hands of destiny?

Ever since I was a young man I have locked myself far from the human hell But there is something in the basement The phantoms living there are on the hunt Rolling over and playing dead Wreaking havoc inside my head There is a party deep down where there is no sun And it is no fun without a gun Redrum Asylum I'm locked inside the Redrum Asylum I can't get out of the Redrum Asylum I'm breaking down I'm quiet in my room tonight In my dark place I stand alone My jaded heart has turned into a stone Wailing for the curtain to fall I'm waiting in the wings My time will come I go mental inside these walls No one listens to my silent calls Buried alive in my tomb sweet tomb I age Every prison is not a cage Redrum Asylum I'm locked inside the Redrum Asylum I can't get out of the Redrum Asylum I'm breaking down I'm quiet in my room I'm tired but I can't sleep I can't eat They have locked the only exit I have the key but a demon is hiding underneath Madness here madness there There is madness everywhere I don't fear but instead I'd give my life to be dead Everybody has left this place And I am the only one left They are so far now They don't look back They have found their way And I can't reach them anymore It's over there is not a thing I can do I do what the little voices tell me to There is no light coming through This ain't no room with a view And while I'm thinking of yore I hear you banging on the door The time you are there with the cure I'm laying cold on the floor

I was alone and miserable I was talking to my bedroom walls I was under lock and key at home I never had someone to call my own Somebody in my head used to come up and tell "If you can't have friends, make one" Now here I am waiting for a strike of lightening To bring this dead body to life My own little monster The one who holds me My hand-made blood brother You will forever be with me My own little monster You are my only friend I am your creature feature And we belong together till the world ends With these hands i am making a hunk Who will not run away from me He will dance for me in underwear Just like in my wildest fantasies And when comes the night between his sewed arms He will make me feel like a child He will lay my body down between his decaying legs Just to make me feel like a man My own little monster The one who holds me My hand-made blood brother You will forever be with me My own little monster You are my only friend I am your creature feature And we belong together till the world ends All I ever wanted was to be loved by someone To feel your cold hand in mine But you are not awaking You were just a dream With my own eyes now you can see Don't be afraid it is only me

Oh Mother Madness How do I look through your eyes? You pull the strings and I'm a monster in disguise When I was seeking for a bit of tenderness You kept me in the dark like a well-guarded secret Oh Father Sadness Am I meaty as you are? Can't say myself since I am hiding behind the scars You are the hand that feeds but you are scaring me to death While you are drowning in the bottle I am waiting for your last breath And you say (Mother Madness) "Oh Glen, you have always been such a fright All alone and dressed in black You are misanthropic" (Father Sadness) "Oh Glenda, wipe that painting off your face Your hair is such a disgrace Shame on you my girl" Pretty on pictures like a happy family I hide my smile behind a row of broken teeth You put some make-up on to cover up the spots And always the show must go on no matter what And I don't know what I am A boy, a girl or a man? I'd like to be all but I can't And when I'm awake in my bed I hear what you are saying (Mother Madness) "Oh Glen, there are names for boys like you They are all gonna laugh at you You sick little thing" (Father Sadness) "Oh Glenda, you are all wet and drenched in blood You name is written in the mud You ain't that pretty" My toys are broken My mind is shattered I'm seeing red I only wanted to be an eye candy But the whole town is out hunting the black sheep I'm in the death row The flames are burning at my feet (Mother Madness) "Oh Glen, now you have swallowed your pride And you will have nothing to hide When you are six feet under" (Father Sadness) "Oh Glenda, you ate all your fingernails Nailed on the cross in your dress We are setting you on fire"

Hey boy - you got the look that kills You give everyone shaking chills Walking in the streets with an evil grin But something is missing Are you having a bad hair day? Why don't you put a smile on that face? And again you disappear without a trace Yeah something is missing We don't know what your name is We don't know what is your disease You don't believe in fairy tales And you are biting your own tail Nobody knows what is on your mind Nobody sees what is deep inside Because you are hiding behind those sunglasses at midnight The sun is shining in the sky The light is burning your eyes And like a vampire you lay in your grave But look who is sneering You show up and it is a merry-gore-round But your brain is nowhere to be found You are just a shadow among the glimmer slaves Oh look who is sneering We don't know what is the real you We can't see what is going through You don't face the world in the eyes And now you have become blind Nobody knows what is on your mind Nobody sees what is deep inside Because you are hiding behind those sunglasses at midnight Nobody tries to break the shell Nobody wants you as a friend Because you are fading behind those sunglasses at midnight And we don't care if you behave L.A.M.F. And what does that spell? Like a monster freak You are just a faceless nightmare Look what you have done to yourself You can't rewind it is too late We are all going to pass you by But remember tears don't lie

He Wolf 05:51
In the daylight he walks among us But there is someone else deep inside Who is just hiding in the closet And hardly tries to keep his pride When the mood rises up at midnight The fever is starting to grow But somehow things have never felt that right Be careful you never know His eyes get bigger than his stomach His hair is growing And he is breaking the chains that hold him back The beast is unleashed on Saturday nights The dance floor is his playground He does not eat meat but that is what he bites He wolf - hungry for blood When the whole neighborhood sleeps tight He dresses up in tight blue jeans It is a dirty business but he can't help that A little meal is what he needs He smells the air and picks up his pray A simple look into its eyes He does not have a word to say A scratch takes him to the sky This is when he finally feels alive And when he is done You can hear him howl at the moon much to his delight The beast is unleashed on Saturday nights The dance floor is his playground He does not eat meat but that is what he bites He wolf He lives undercover He has got a passion for the chase But when the sun comes up He has to clean up every trace Before he goes out for another taste He is like an animal in cage hunting down some tender flesh He is letting out all of the rage just to have a taste of little death What the small game hide beneath is where is wildly sinks his teeth The only way to heal the wounds is to run in the woods with the hounds

Bare Bones 04:45
Please tell me Captain Howdy If someday I will be a star I'm ready to stay hungry I will work that muscle and go to war I have been waiting around the clock Wondering about surrender It is just a long way to the top In the end the game is never over Mirror my sweet mirror How am I reflecting? Am I too fat? Am I too big? I wanna get rid of my chin i wanna be scrawny and thin Like famous people in magazines I'm gonna be bare bones again I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience Yeah I will be bare bones again As I'm wishing upon a star I'm writing my memoirs Mom and dad have always told me That I need to feed to survive It became a catastrophe When suddenly I was twice my size Now I don't care what people say I'm taking my life back I will run a million miles To put my rib cage back on track Screaming for an ice cream I am not getting it I say "troop on, put that skin down" But once I have beaten my score It comes back for more And I have spare sets of it in store I'm gonna be bare bones again I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience Yeah I will be bare bones again I'm joining the skeleton army I'm gonna be bare bones again I'm gonna be beautiful for my audience Yeah I will be bare bones again My fans will wish they were like me Depressed, empty and skinny Like they all are on TV I just wanted to be bare bones again I hold my hands to the sky and say amen I can't be bare bones again I am running out of breath I will find success in death I'm bowing out with grace I leave you a deadicace

I'm here every night I stay by your side I am singing this lullaby You can't hear me Yet I'm so happy When you finally close your eyes While visiting Wonderland You can catch me in your dreams Because you can't put your arms around a memory I'm high in the skies Running out of time I came to say one last goodbye I was feeling weak I am gone to sleep I'm finally on the other side I thought I heard someone cry So I went upstairs just to see Behind the door I found out that it was only me Tonight I'm leaving home for the summer holidays I will see my friends in no man's land Don't be sad when I'm gone I'm just fading away We will meet again on the ghost highway When the organ starts to play The priest recites a prayer They carry my wounded body in a black little casket From above I see you all At my own funeral And there is nobody there but me I was alone all along
12.
I'm on my way to Disgraceland I have not been allowed to heaven I have made a mistake once or twice And I can't get to paradise Halleluia I have got a one way ticket down I wear my best suit and my tie The best damn hat money can't buy Maybe this time i will steal the scene I will celebrate like a rotting queen Halleluia There is a dead man's party down When you are young and you need to bite You spin around like a maniac And when you are home alone Everybody is gone You know what is feeling right Now I'm too dead to repent my sins I start to dance on the devil's swing Hell is in control Madness takes its toll It's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife I had a meeting with the king He told me: "Boy, let's make a deal There is no room for the two of you But looks like you are of easy virtue It is all free so enter Don't worry son, you will pay later But once you are in remember The chips are down" When you are young and you need to bite You spin around like a maniac And when you are home alone Everybody is gone You know what is feeling right Now I'm too dead to repent my sins I start to dance on the devil's swing Hell is in control Madness takes its toll It's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife Mom and dad as I'm writing this There is a feast I don't wanna miss The weather is really well and I am doing swell And I'm blowing you a kiss Here they all treat me very good Like every devil in the world should I wish you were by my side to enjoy this crazy ride Because it's a wonderful, wonderful afterlife
