Monster Philosophy

Harmony
Is a bit of you
And a lot of me

Tranquility
When rule number one
Is how I feel

A warm embrace
With instincts set
On human prey

I've overdosed on peace
What I wanna hear
Is honesty

Underneath the rules of liberty
You've got a monster philosophy
YOU'VE GOT A MONSTER PHILOSOPHY

A fountain of life
The ticking bomb
Of a reptile mind

A mutual trust
A face on fire
With brutal lust

The allknowing heart
I'd rather be lucky
Than wise and smart

A mystery
The monster is barking
Up the wrong tree

Monster Philosophy

Harmony
Is a bit of you
And a lot of me

Tranquility
When rule number one
Is how I feel

A warm embrace
With instincts set
On human prey

I've overdosed on peace
What I wanna hear
Is honesty

Underneath the rules of liberty
You've got a monster philosophy
YOU'VE GOT A MONSTER PHILOSOPHY

A fountain of life
The ticking bomb
Of a reptile mind

A mutual trust
A face on fire
With brutal lust

The allknowing heart
I'd rather be lucky
Than wise and smart

A mystery
The monster is barking
Up the wrong tree

Motorlove

Yeah, when the sun's outta sight,
And your eyes begin to burn
And you can't see the freeway or a lefthand turn
Then you hit the ground running
And you run into trouble
And you feel like (the e-string on an album (ed.)) of jah wobble...

I pick my nose at the red light, and at green; well you know..

Motorlove
I ended up drunk in som bar
Motorlove
And took a cab right back to my car

If you can't catch the plane
And you can't get a bus
Don't worry you can ride with us..
When the sun's outta sight,
And your eyes begin to burn
And you can't see the freeway or a lefthand turn

Pick my nose at the red light, and at green; well you know..

Motorlove
Ended up drunk in some bar
Motorlove
And took a cab right back to my car
Motorlove
Let's roll the rock away
Motorlove
Where there's a will there's a highway...

Musical Chairs

You know you need to be somewhere,
Trying to grow old as fast you can
Try to get to know the world
And how a little girl becomes a man

And you’re learning to watch
And you’re watching to learn
And you look and you touch
And you hope for your turn

Waiting for the world to come around….

Everybody tries to make a move
Just before the traffic lights turns blue
Yeah it’s clear; you’ve got no idea
and then the music stops and you’re without a chair…..

Running round the face of earth
Looking for a healthy dream to follow
Hanging on to life, there ain’t no wisdom
We only got tomorrow…

Naked (But Still Strippin')

My tongue's tied and sliced in two
And wagging at both ends...
Yeah, I've learned to talk -
Both sides of my mouth makes sense
You'll see the skin of my teeth
But you won't see a smile
So here it is, the big truth
Hiding in the little lie...
My throw decides my aim
And with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end
As if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!
I'm naked but still stripping..

Luxury tends to be the same every day
But I know misery's for each in his own way..
I count on amputated fingers who I call a friend
The end is hard when brought about
By what you thought made sense...
My throw decides my aim and with a phony voice
- Unserious to the end as if I had a choice...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming - yeah!
I'm naked - but still stripping..

Some people live so close
To their bones; with just themselves to be
But I run around; inside myself
- Like something's after me
I take off my skin
Underneath there's nothing
Everything's gone ... A naked skeleton!
Piece of an arm piece of a leg
A piece of my tongue
And peace for everyone...
Here's my heart; my hope's drowning
Here's my eyes; the light is blinding
Here's my hands; my feet are running
Here's my head; my ass' coming ... yeah!

Never Never (Indian Love)

The sun went up
Red and glooming?
Spread heat and light and dust
All over Wyoming
There she went for ever and ever
While I'm standing here on Never Never
Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?
Oh Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?

I was standing above
And my tears were falling
Looking down on my love
While her tribe was calling
There she went for ever and ever
While I'm standing here on Never Never
Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?
Oh Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?

When that sun went up
Red and glooming?
I lost my heart, my light my love
Way out in Wyoming
There she went away for ever and ever
While I'm standing here on Never Never
Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?
Oh Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here, can't you hear my song?
Oh Indian girl, where've you been so long?
I'm standing here

Nightmares In The Daytime

I need a time machine mr. Wells
I'm on top of the world
But it should have been someone else
It feels like I died in an accident
Without time to be afraid or to suffer
My soul just left

I can't even tell you what I've seen
I can't even tell you where I've been

Waking up from living your dreams
NIGHTMARES IN THE DAYTIME
When everything is as it seems
But you're paying it no mind
Let me tell you right away,
First they come,
Then they stay,
Never slip away…

My house is empty I don't care
My world sits on nothing it just hangs in the air
And when the only light is the sun
It's a desperate day and I wonder what I've become

With things to remember to forget
Don't even know whats left to save

Lived by the rules
And going insane
All my ghosts turned into real men
Art was dead
And I'd been a saint
Until last night it happened again
Back to the time
When the beast barked

Nightstalker

I begin again
Wipe the tears off my hands
And I smile like a doomed man
I trained head and my heart
But not my eyes - it's too dark
There's a hole where hope used to be
Yeah hurt me 'till I cry
Kill me - I'll never ask why
Turn reality into a lie
A high romantic idea
Of doomed love
You win - I'm gone

It's better to have a red face once
Than forever yellow
'bout what's undone
Left with burned out eyes
And bigger lies

There's a crack and the light is new
You're taking away that too
A crack and the light is new...

Like a questionmark
On a bench in a park
The dream is broken
A heart is knocked out
Everything's turned bad
Wanna call and take it all back
The door to the future
Where is it at...
Moving silent and slow
And peacefully grow
Try to smile like I'm happy and proud
You've got your coat on
You're leaving
Light is gone
So long....

Nineteenhundredandyesterday

I let a lie come true
I even cared enough to lie
Recieve what I transmit
And slowly close your eyes
Yeah, to unlock your locked up love
And set it free
You need a complicated key
You need a key as big as me ..

You were almost on my mind
Yeah, and though I'm doing just fine
I've hurt myself in many ways
Back in nineteenhundredandyesterday
Yeah, I think of you every time
Every time I leave it behind -
Back in nineteenhundredandyesterday

And when I lie in bed
And I'm going through the day
What's been done and said
It slips into my head
You open up one door
And then you're faced with many more
Yeah, I know all of them well
I keep my questions to myself

You were almost on my mind ...

Hey, I thought I wanted it
I thought I needed it
To unlock your locked up love
You left the key and then you walked off

You were almost on my mind ...

No Doubt About It

I wanna give it my blood
I'm gonna live my dream
But like the tail of a tornado
I never know where it leads...

(chorus)
Let there be no doubt about it
Paradise is too far to go
Let there be no doubt about it
It's close enough for rocknroll

Yeah you could sell your soul
But you know they’ll keep on charging
If hell is where you go
I say you just keep on walking

No doubt about it
We know all that glitters ain’t gold
Let there be no doubt about it
We’re close enough for rocknroll

(downpart)
Sometimes it feels like paradise has been
Postponed
Don’t worry
We’re close enough for rnr

(c-part)
Paradise is too far to go
We’re close enough for rnr
We know all that glitters ain’t gold
But it’s close enough for rnr
