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

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

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

Bowser 02:27
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

Idon Twanna 02:56
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

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

Mated 02:19
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

Uncover 01:51
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
9.
Mail 02:55
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
10.
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

Silver Salute (free) 02:06
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
