Track Name: Salty and Free
Salty and Free

I'd like to be
Salty and free
I looked around
And something
I found out:
Out of all possibilities
I'd like to be
Salty and free

I'm moving quick
Towards a place
where my tears drip
into the sea
I'd like to be
Salty and free

This drink tastes exquisite
And I sit and sip
It tastes so exquisite
But I have to admit:
Out of all possibilities
I'd like to be
Salty and free

I'm moving quick
Towards a place
Where my tears drip
Track Name: But to the Water
But to the Water

The people's most beloved daughter
Drowned in the moat
The nurse had rumbled her rose was rambling
No one's been told

And I am glad that you're alive
You know I'd follow you anywhere
Track Name: Money for Millionaires
Money for Millionaires

I say: „Please don't.“
You say you won't
But still
I know you will

There's no use in talking to you
It's pointless, all in vain
It's useless, senseless and insane
Like raising money
For a millionaire

I stopped thinking 'bout you
Half a minute ago
And I didn't want to start
Thinking 'bout you again

There's no use in thinking 'bout you
It's pointless, all in vain
It's useless, senseless and insane
Like raising money
For a millionaire
Track Name: Bowser
Bowser

Springtime is wasted on me
Sitting in an office
Springtime is wasted on me
Sitting in an office

Staying inside all day
I don't work, I play
Tetris, Yoshi's Island, Bomberman
I try to beat high scores
I do the best I can

'Cause
Closing time is late
And I am ill paid

Springtime is wasted on me
Sitting in an office
Springtime is wasted on me
Sitting in an office

I can't afford
To travel abroad
all I've got is my browser
I dress up as a clerk
I go to work
And try to defeat Bowser

'Cause
Closing time is late
And I am ill paid
Track Name: Idon Twanna
Idon Twanna

The film on the inside of my forehead
It is called 'I Don't Wanna'
Which also seems to be the name of
the main actor, Idon Twanna
And I think I don't wanna
see this film time and again

The very title art is made up of miserable
cubical letters, the 'Idontwanna' font
Obstructing my view of the story
Anyway I know the story inside out
It goes:

I don't wanna
I don't wanna
I don't wanna...

Anymore
Track Name: This Isn't Happiness
This Isn't Happiness

Nowhere to go
Nothing to do
A gloomy sunday afternoon
Feels like my entire world
Is one long sunday afternoon
And nothing appeals to me

You just dropped by
Drunken and full of expectations
And I'm not inspired by your presence
Not even to ask you to leave
It's all the same to me

Nowhere to go
Nothing to do
A gloomy sunday afternoon
Feels like my entire world
Is one long sunday afternoon
And nothing appeals to me

You keep on smiling at me
Seems like you want me to smile back
And strike up a conversation
Or something like that
As we lay on my bed
I won't do that
I won't do anything

Nowhere to go
Nothing to do
A gloomy sunday afternoon
Well, you may like me
And I may like you
It just doesn't appeal
No, it just doesn't appeal to me
today
Track Name: Mated
Mated

Seeing work as duty is so outdated
So me and my employer
Got mated

All the day I grant his wishes
And afterwards I do the dishes
All the day I grant his wishes
And afterwards I do the dishes

So I do all the housework
And I have to pay the rent
I get the sneaky suspicion
I'm not more than a friend
To him

But I never get annoyed
I hope to get employed
In an open ended, permanent position

Seeing work as duty is so outdated
So me and my employer
Got mated

All the day I grant his wishes
And afterwards I do the dishes
All the day I grant his wishes
And afterwards I do the dishes
Track Name: Uncover
Uncover

I sing along David
As if being Jonny
Though the drummer's gone
And my throat's turned to a rook's
From drink-smoke-drinking
From six to zero
Next to the shoeshine boy
Getting nearer

To some red hot suspicion
Making me believe
That summer's gone
And that I had thrown away
Quite some realm of mine

I blow my cover
I drop my bow
Two strings go

I sing along after I've made my bet
Where deliberation falls
While I watch myself
Crash-land my credits
Uncovering my stealthiness

As someone soon will uncover me
With my own volubility
Track Name: Mail
Mail

All the leaves are brown
And you just left town
All the leaves are brown
The sun fell down
Burnt a hole in my shoe
Where the rain gets through
Water, hit the ground
While I walk, I walk around

I'll write another mail
You're too big to fail
„Girl don't tell me you'll write“
In my head
All night
But my life won't get too hard
As long as there are postcards
I'll write another postcard
But it would be better
If you sent me a letter
Track Name: Salary Workers
Salary Workers

They go out and grab a cab
They grab a cab when they want to go back
Then go to bed and have a little nap
Four hours later they are back on track

Because some of my friends are
Salary workers
And I think they are
Really nice

When I call them with my pay as you go phone
To tell them that I feel so alone at home
They invite me to where they roam
And buy me drinks all night

Because some of my friends are
Salary workers
And I think they are
Really nice
Track Name: Silver Salute
Silver Salute

I still refuse to wear pretty clothes
And I'll abuse swearwords
I feel unwell with people who
get along well with people

I prefer the skies' silver salute

Never regret it is always you
to bake the first pancake
They're choochie woochie, and they'll throw it away
But you'll crack another egghead

I prefer the skies' silver salute
