ALL THEY EVER WANTED (2008)

18 KARAT GOLD

18 karat gold wouldn't fill the hole
The bleeding hole in her heart
That's made from circumstances at home

Because they kept pulling her hair
And so it choked her words
She don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
And she's home

I thought 18 karat gold would save a lonely soul
But she don't sleep at night, afraid to turn out the light
Cause they kept pulling her hair
Wouldn't leave her alone
But if only I could read her mind
And release that stone

In her heart where the sadness grows
I'd operate with this knife
And cut a big fat giant hole
To fill with gold and light

But there's an endless battle to be won
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
So you scream about it in the night

In the night....

My 18 karat gold, it fills a dirty hole
A dirty bleeding hole in my heart
You people think it's made from circumstances at home
Well if someone ever should be pulling your hair
Then I guess you should leave them alone
And now you want me to read your mind
And release that stone

That stone in your heart where the sadness grows
You know I, I'd operate with this knife
And cut a big fat giant hole
To fill with gold and light

But there's an endless battle to be won
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
So you scream about it in the night

There's an endless battle to be won
And me I ain't a man with an educated mind
And soon, you won't have the strength to carry on
So you scream about it in the night

In the night....

PARTY WITH MY PAIN

She's lump, she's lump, she ain't got it
She's talking about regrets and I can't see them
Can't seem to follow through, what I had promised

I stumble upon regrets, me too, so instead....

I party with my pain
When you don't seem to come around
With fluids in my brain
We seem to get along just fine
I party with my pain

She's drunk, comes home in the morning
I wonder where she's been, and I can feel it's burning in my chest
(No kiss), no smile for nothing
I'm longing for the time when I turn off and....

Party with my pain
I got fluids in my brain
You don't seem to come around
Fuckin up with strangers in strange towns

But you should know I never wanted to be in this ocean
Of not knowing what you will do
Hold it down, this foggy notion
Or take away all my skills

I crumble in my pain
When you don't seem to come around

A stamp, a letter, a mailbox, a hello and goodbye
Don't try to turn this into something good
There ain't no good about it
Do you dance under the stars? While I go out and....

Party with my pain
I got fluids in my brain
You don't seem to come around
Fucking up with strangers in strange towns

You should know I never wanted to be in this ocean
Of not knowing what you will do
Hold it down, this foggy notion
Or take away all my skills

I party with my pain
You don't seem to come around

SEND MORE MONEY

All I can do is just send more money
But it ain't love, it ain't love
A voice on the phone telling me to take care of my family

But it ain't love, it ain't love

What if I'd throw my heart in a cage
And send it back home to your address
Will I earn mpre time to earn more money

I said all I can do is just send more money
But it ain't love, no it ain't love
Can't sleep at night cause I do worry about you honey
And the boy, what about the boy?

I throw my heart in a cage
And send it back home to your address
Will I earn more time to earn more money

I hear the school bell ring
Class is running out from rehearsals
And I'm the only one in the corridor that's left
But when I look back now at everything I thought back then
I thought I'd have more time now to sit back and relax
But instead sometimes I just feel insane

But if I throw my heart in a cage
And send it back to your address
Will I earn more time just to earn more money?
 
Money

TRAIN SONG

I grew up as an orphan in a big old house
I had no mother and no father, they had left me out
Confused was the word for me, the confusion

It planted a seed, in me

And I was placed in this home as a five year old
I was presented to my forster mother, she was so old
She took advantage of my company
It was nothing but slavery, slavery

She's dead in the house
She's dead in the house
She's dead in the house

You grow up under pressure and psychic terror
Then eventually your brain will just flip out and go "error"
The satisfaction of a murder for a little boy
Is so unhealthy, but it helped me on my journey to joy

And I prepared for a sweet revenge
No regrets ever since, ever since

Dead in the house
Oh she's dead in the house
She's dead, dead in the house
Oh she's dead
Spread out she's all over the place in the house
And she's dead

A chainsaw is nice it's a healthy tool
Or perhaps a good old fashioned drowning in the garden pool
Or a brick in the head for all the stuff she said
A machete-massacre, I'll shred her up in my head
There's a blood thirsty killer and a caterpillar
It would crush her into pieces, I would gladly drill her
A big hole in the skull to fill with gasoline
Light a match and watch the fire sprinkle out what a scene
I would be happy oh so happy, by the time I'm done
I would be running around the house with a taser gun
And tase all the different body parts, electrifying
This must be the greatest day ever, no I ain't lying

As happy as a boy can be
On his way to puberty, puberty

Dead in the house
Oh she's dead, dead in the house
She's dead, dead in the house
Oh she's dead
Spread out she's all over the place in the house
And she's dead

IN THE MYSTERY TIME OF COLD AND RAIN

In the mystery time of cold and rain
I was your boyfriend and you were my friend

Soon, the sun lifted you to higher ground
And you went looking for another in town

You should know there's nothing else to do
But for me to sit and wait for you
In a place where everything tastes the same
No mystery time just cold and rain

I know I lift my values high above ground
But it's a knife in heart not having you around

If an important piece is torn apart
And you need a cure for a heavy heart

Then I'm the champion yeah, I'm the champion you see
I don't wanna beg but come and hang out with me and Ossi

In the archipelago we could swim
Between the islands
Never mind all the folks
And perhaps we would breathe again

Go to sleep, go to sleep at night
Hugging pillows, passing out on the couch
Me myself I'm laying under the bed
The wooden floor is where I lay my head

I know I lift my values high above ground
But it's a knife in heart not having you around
 
Will I ever breathe again?

ZEPPELIN

Gone, gone, gone baby's gone
Leave me broken on a dead end phone
You said you reached for the time

But this time the time ain't enough

A split second a blink of an eye
When she's gone yeah she's gone, baby's gone
Yeah she's gone baby's gone
And I've just felt like shit ever since

We had a real good time, and we were best friends
But we would drive and strive until we hit a dead end
And she's gone baby's gone
And I've just felt like shit ever since

Gone, gone, gone baby's gone
Leave me broken on a dead end phone
Now you can feast on the time
And catch up on all you left out

Dead head, yeah I'm dead in the head
Cause when she's gone yeah she's gone
Baby's gone yeah she's gone baby's gone
And I've just felt like shit ever since

We had a real good time, and we were best friends
But we would drive and strive until we hit a dead end
And she's gone baby's gone
And I've just felt like shit ever since

Waking up from a coma with your brand new eyes
See the world in a different way
Even though the past ist just a memory away

Even though you lost it
I remind you that thing ain't that easy to forget
Disappointments and weak regrets
What about my broken heart?

Gone, gone, gone baby's gone
Leave me broken on a dead end phone
You said you reached for the time
But this time the time ain't enough

A split second a blink of an eye
When she's gone yeah she's gone, baby's gone
Yeah she's gone baby's gone
And I've just felt like shit ever since

BOBBY

Soaked and alone, on his knees in a house
He escaped to the countryside after commiting a crime
Bobby was young, heavy heart and his gun

And the man drove him out of the city wanted dead or alive
Yeah everything because he couldn't abide

Now he knows, that at the start of his strife
He was like "as far as being young and wild
I am up for whatever"

Bobby was young, heavy heart and his gun
And to take somebody under his wings
It wasn't too very clever

Everything that he couldn't afford
He wanna smile on a big street again
He wanna follow his dreams, but instead....

Annie may go down and still make a sound
She may go down and bleed in your mind

Because you hold your breath and your tongue
But she would still go down, make a sound
Make a sound, make a sound, make a sound

So come along to the local jailhouse
Two walls and a bed
Inside they only reach for the time

Bobby was young, heavy heart and his gun
And the man found him outside the city
He was barely alive

Everything that he couldn't afford
He wanna smile on a big street again
He wanna follow his dreams, but instead....

Annie may go down and still make a sound
She may go down and bleed in your mind

Because you hold your breath and your tongue
But she would still go down, make a sound
Make a sound, make a sound, make a sound

Annie may go down and still make a sound
She may go down and bleed in your mind

Because you hold your breath and your tongue
But she would still go down, make a sound

ALL THEY EVER WANTED

Rotten trees outside the city
They've been there for years
And that's all they ever wanted


Shallow figures within the city
They've been there forever and ever
And that's all they ever wanted

Don't follow me into the city
I won't show you a good time
I won't take you out dancing

Wouldn't it be nice to be stuck in the forest
Like an old rotten tree with no need or wanting

Guns were made for disturbing the peace
People in the city will never all agree
On what they ever wanted

Some people think we all should have just one task
And some people don't think before they ask
Or everything they ever wanted

People in the city will never all agree
On what they ever wanted

UP IN THE AIR

Up in the air, just above the clouds
Looking out the window
Oh what a beautiful sight


Up in the air, way above the ground
Unplug my ears and think
What a terrible sound

That the engines make, it don't seem right
Being here it don't make no sense to me
Although I'm up in the air
I can go anywhere, up in the air

Up in the air in an old machine
Black clouds, rain, thunder outside
What a beautiful sight

Up in the air, cheating on gravity
But I'm stuck, stuck in this shell of steel
It ain't place for me

The noise that the engines make
It don't seem right
Being here it don't make no sense to me
Although I'm up in the air
I can go anywhere, but then I see -

The fine line between space and the atmosphere
And suddenly everything makes sense to me
I could go anywhere, without a shell or a care

And when the aeroplane breaks in half
Just leave your body behind
Then we could all float around, no run and hide

No worries up there, save the treasure you've found
It's all yours to keep, in the air - don't be scared

LIE LIE DIE

Your mind it slips cause you're getting old
And there ain't no new chapter to unfold
In the book you've been writing all your life

The ending don't seem right
It keeps you up at night
Oh, it hunts you in your sleep

lie, lie, lie, die, lie, lie, lie, die

But you remember the time when you were just a little boy
The Christmas tree and the presents full of toys
No concern about when tomorrow comes
You and your plastic gun
It would protect you in your sleep
And problems left alone

lie, lie, lie, die, lie, lie, lie, die

If somebody would come by just to say hello
A kind stroke on my cheek before I go
Cause soon my heart can't provide my body with blood
And I will just give up
And slowly slip away
On to an unfamiliar place

lie, lie, lie, die, lie, lie, lie, die,
lie, die, die, die, die, oh, oh, oh, oh

What a great suprise, what a great surprise
When you die, die, die, die, die, oh oh oh oh
