01. StoleShowSoul

A CHANCE TO make a CHANGE
A chance to tell the tale the way it is
A chance to REARRANGE
A chance you never had, just merely wished
You're lying in the gutter
Not feeling at all well
Some parasite read your letter
A one way ticket off to hell
The juicier the story
The quicker one will get in
And no one will be sorry
After chucking you in the bin
I lost my soul while others stole the show
I lot my soul cos it has been shown all over the world

Got to keep up those ratings
I'm rich because of you
Must be awfully frustrating
Here have a cigar or two
Still lying in the gutter
Media made it look swell
So no one can be bothered
That you're in a hell

"Hey damn baby
hey are you going away
so I'll give you a chance
a chance to bring you a little higher
hey just a little bit
then thrown in fire
"Oh dear you unfortunate thing
oh please next week you must come to the
show
oh goody am I not the king
oh yes I know you know
I'm lower than low"


02. Achin'

Leave me alone, but I do need some company dear
Oh please don't leave home, don't really mean what I'm saying here
The outside may look okay, not all of it was hell,
My biggest wish and fear is to forever drift and dwell
Leave me alone, let's pretend that we're not here,
Oh please don't leave home, wouldn't it be great to disappear
Leave me alone don't leave me alone, & will I ever know?
All the pressures I feel
They're building up around me
I hope you'll never feel this aching pain inside


03. Sometimes

Soms... Zijn je wonden nog te diep of vers
Vaak is er nog die pijn
Weten wat je hebt verloren
Niet, wat de zin er van moet zijn
Soms... je denkt dat alles is verloren
Komt er stil een nieuw begin
Ontvankelijkheid door pijn geboren
Geeft het leven weer wat zin
Soms...Als alles lijkt verloren
Zingt een vogel in de nacht
Als je dat maar weer kan horen
Krijg je na het duister kracht
Stil... je voeten op verdwaadle paden
Je gaat het licht weer in
Je weet behoedzaam...


04. I Lost My Cookies In The Disco

I'm off to an island of my dreams...
Far away from home, with nobody else but me
Peaceful & all alone, surrounded by a blue
I'm off to build a raft for me...
Just let me be free, peaceful & all alone
Just let me be me, far away from home
Why...do I feel...
...that this life wasn't really meant for me?
Try... to become...
...a person, someone else, the opposite of me
So... I'll try to escape...
...this world with it's so-called possibilities
And then... I'll sail away...
...to leave it all behind, don't follow me, please
Why...should all the soil...
...we have, be deadend by lifeless concrete?
...the grip on this evergrowing, urban disease
So...it won't take long...
...before the last drop of water turns black in
these seas
And then... I'll sail away...
...to leave it all behind, don't follow me, please


05. I Hope You Know (In 4 Parts)

Part I:
There's a cry in July
I can feel the aching pain again
Just wanna change the hands of time and take
you away
Away from this hell I've put you through... Away
What are they thinking?
I can't look them in the eye
My confidence is sinking
We all know what happened in July
What are they saying?
To mirrors on the walls back home
Are they hoping or sweating now
"Is there a god... is there a god at all?"
I'd love to give them a stroke
Or tell them a joke
But this was too real
I screamed up to the sky:
"Exchange theirs for mine!"
But this was all too real!
I tryed to help someone out
On a beautiful, shiney day
A task so simple
Yet making my life all grey
Cos that day I had become the worst of devils
And I wished that I was dead
I almost took two lives away
Of people... of people I'll never forget!
I know... no one deserves this
I know... I'm the one to blame
I know... I never meant to harm anybody
I know... I'll be living in shame!

Part II:
I hope, oh baby
that you'll became a lady
And please do, baby
Just hang in there & become amazing
I hope, oh baby
For openness, no nothing hazy
And listen, baby
I hope you know that I'm still here
Never lose hope, oh anybody
Never lose hope, oh baby
Never lose hope, oh anybody
Remember, there's still a maybe
There's always a maybe
There's always a maybe
Maybe?

Part III:
Dear begetters, I'm understanding
Not as callous as you fantasize
If it's compassion, you are demanding
I've really given it, not before your eyes, please
realize
Imagine me as a higher being
Imagine all the broken pieces I could mend
And eventhough I'm dreaming now
Real is the love from me I'll send out to you...
I'd love to give them a stroke
Or tell them a joke
But this was too real
I screamed up to the sky:
"Exchange theirs for mine!"
But this was all too real!
I tried to help someone out
On a beautiful, shiney day
A task so simple
Yet making my life all grey
'Cos that day I had become the worst of devils
And I wished that I was dead
I almost took two lives away
Of people... of people I'll never forget!
I know... no one deserves this
I know,.. I'm the one to blame
I know... I never meant to harm anybody
I know... I'll be living in shame!

Part IV:
What are they thinking?
I can't took them in the eye
My confidence is sinking
We all know what happened in July
Imagine me as a higher being
Imagine all the broken pieces I could mend
And eventhough I'm dreaming now
Real is the love from me I'll send out to you...
