Track Name: I Guess You Love the Undergrond
The thin black dress you wore that day
A scene that's burned into my brain
Taken by a serpent in the grass
It kills me just to think of that

And if I had to disappoint you, would you turn around?
I hate to break it to you this way
I guess you love the underground 2x

Down, down, down through the dark and chill
Don't speak to me just wait until
I bring you back from the other side
But that's the day that pigs will fly

And if I had to disappoint you, would you turn around?
I hate to break it to you this way
I guess you love the underground 2x

I had the wind in my sails 2x
I hit a rock and then I hit the bottom 2x

Wake me up with kicks and cries
Or was this just a dream of mine?
I though I'd lost you in the depths
I don't really, think of that

And if I had to disappoint you, would you turn around?
I hate to break it to you this way
I guess you love the underground
Track Name: Heartbreakers
Heartbreakers, sit down
Keep fighting, you'll drown

Crashing through the door
You'll break yourself, I'm sure

This violence, tears apart
Keep silent, in your heart

Crashing through the door
You'll break yourself, I'm sure

Even the sirens had their good sides
Singing from the shores
Even the sirens had their good sides
If you can escape their songs

Wouldn't you love them if they haunt you?
How can you be so sure?
Wouldn't you love them if they haunt you?
Track Name: Kansas Anymore
Richard was a banker, yeah
The worst type you could say
And together with his sycophants
He dragged the bodies away

And they made money that turns days into nights 2x

Dorothy was a dancer, yeah
She danced the nights away
And Billy was a butcher
He had blood stains every day

And they made money that turns days into nights 2x

Can I buy you a ring with stone?
From the money that I earned
Can I buy you a ring with a stone?

Did you hear the news today?
About the raging storms?
I guess we're not in Kansas anymore

Richard was a banker, yeah
The worst type you could say
And together with his sycophants
He dragged the bodies away

Can I buy you a ring with stone?
From the money that I earned
Can I buy you a ring with a stone?

Did you hear the news today?
About the raging storms?
I guess we're not in Kansas anymore

Did you hear the news today?
About it raining toads?
I guess we're not in Kansas anymore
Track Name: No time
I'll be there in no time, watch the kids play
I'll have my dreams explained
I'll take all the heat and close all the windows
And in the winter I'll dig graves 2x

I'll be there in no time, I'll take chances
Sixty times a day
Somebody asked you "where are you from?"
Still in the winter I'll dig graves 2x

I'll be there in no time, hear what you say
You touch me like a saint
Heavenly archers shoot their arrows
And in the winter I'll dig graves 2x
Track Name: Raise the Dead
I heard that you fell down from the seventh floor
You jumped they saw you flying
They saw you flying

That's when you spread your arms
Like a gust of wind you took of, yeah you ride it
Yeah you ride it

Heartache never comes from the stomach
But nightmares do!

And if I'd raise the dead for you
Would you come back down to embrace this fool?
Trouble never comes alone,
It hits you where it hurts you most

I heard that you swam down to the ocean floor
With wales you sleep beside them
You sleep beside them

But under waves and thunderstorms
The shipwrecks pass you by
You live inside them
You live inside them

Heartache never comes from the stomach
But nightmares do!

And if I'd raise the dead for you
Would you come back down to embrace this fool?
Trouble never comes alone,
It hits you where it hurts you most
Track Name: The Hold
With the sores under your tongue
With the sores under your tongue
That's how it all began

And they tell you to keep holding on
Yeah they tell you to keep holding on, again...

When I still had all my guns
They shot my neighbours and their sons
That's when it all began

And they tell you to keep holding on
Yeah they tell you to keep holding on, again...

Throwing bricks and throwing stones
And then they bomb you with with their drones
That's how it all began

And they tell you to keep holding on
Yeah they tell you to keep holding on, again...
Track Name: Captain captain
Oh Captain, captain!
How did you sail your ships?
Through muddy waters
We try to steer it clear, not go under

Oh father, brother!
We dive for pearls in a black sea
We see through ink, yeah
We try to steer it clear, not go under

I had a dream and it took all the strength I had lef in me 2x
But I don't remember a thing

Oh mother, mother!
We looked at all the charts
The course looks crazy
We try to steer it clear, not go under

I had a dream and it took all the strength I had lef in me 2x
But I don't remember a thing

When the stakes are high, you can't afford to loose your mind 4x
Yeah they sunk but you didn't go down without a fight! 2x
Track Name: Some plans
Head first into this situation
I can't decide if I'm down
Take into consideration
That takes ain't looking up now

I'll be the sunshine of the nation
I'll hold my head up high
If it's any consolation
If it's any help at all

I'll be the Head of Information
I'll dig up what I can find
On babies, mortgage, sickness
And the insurance of life

I'll take on the Administration
I'll paint with word and with time
I'll do some magic tricks
Yeah, I'll do some magic tricks

I'll take care of the translation
Between what's wrong and what's right
Do I speak a different language?
I see in black and in white
Track Name: 22 Life
I had twenty to life in this old world
Seems like I'm stuck on an island
Suddenly overdosing
All the time

I had twenty to life in this old world
That's what I heard in a song
Currently I am
Doing my hardest time

Hear me, I'll bring sunshine
You're wish is my command
Hear me, I'll bring sunshine
Into night and day
It keeps the ghouls at bay
