Track Name: Last summer of youth
On these scribbled lines, here comes the rain,
it washes the dirt away,
as night gives way to the new day
I am overcome by the power of your grace,
a new life comes my way,
oh, and I can barely stand the beauty of your face.
Time runs on unreal rails
and I forgot to care about it,
but it doesn't really mean a thing anyway
and I won't die till it's gone,
it's a lie and we're all deceived.
Hear, life is calling me.

My doubts, this is me again,
maybe we live too long
to keep our dreams from escaping
or getting stuck in puddles of mad hypocrisy,
of a sad mediocrity,
am I just bad or something worse
'cause I want much more than the time
I've been given to fade?
While all friends just go or change
or simply disappear in a haze
I won't die till it's gone,
I will fight till I lose or win.
Hear, life's calling me.

And I know this might be silly, unworthy.
Can you trust me, understand my words?
I won't die till it's gone,
it's a lie and we're all deceived.
Hear, life's calling me.
Track Name: Punky boogie
I'd like to boogie, oh, I'd like to boogie
and forget all 'bout myself,
'cause my mind is such a mess
1,2,3,4 EVERYBODY SHAKE IT!

And you, you're just too far
from whatever it comes around,
start living for a start
1,2,3,4 EVERYBODY MAKE IT!

This time I just won't hide
'cause you and I, babe, are two of a kind
and really I've really needed you badly
for all my life
and I think that maybe
I got tired of it being highly pathetic.

I'd like to boogie, would you like to boogie?
Get your boogies on, babe,
cut the crap, do the steps
1,2,3,4 EVERYBODY SHAKE IT!

This time I just won't hide
oh, won't you please dance with me all night?
I'm really sure nobody else would do,
you're just the one,
and I might be crazy
but your everything's keeping me in rhythm.

I'd like to boogie, oh, this punky boogie,
we could dance like nobody else,
poke your head out of the fucking nest
1,2,3,4 EVERYBODY MAKE IT!

This time we just won't hide,
we'll cross the dance floor like falling stars
and if we just burn out
I don't care much,
cause now we're ready
for rockin' and rollin' or else fading our fate away.

Now it's our show.
Come on, it's all we know.
Come on, it's all we got.
Come on!
Track Name: I've been lysergic
Hey, I've lazed the whole world away,
been lysergic all day,
hypnotized
by the flashing light of the traffic light.

While plastic men keep repeating their days
and making sure everything stays the same,
dreaming's never been easier,
ok, maybe I'm lethargic but it's not a tragedy

I know what they say
but I don't mind at all, I don't mind at all
I forgot to grow
could you slow your roll, would you slow your roll?

Hey, I'm slipping outside of my brain,
I'll wait for the strawberry rain,
black & white rainbows
and fluorescent clouds in a crimson sky.

While iron men keep defending our past
and making sure all they do's gonna last
I just refuse to become one of them,
well it's no tragedy, it's hardly a tragedy

I know what they say
but I don't mind at all, I don't mind at all,
I forgot to grow,
could you slow your roll, would you slow down, slow.
I've been here before
and though it could be charming it's not what I want
so I stay on my own,
please, don't count on me
you just let me off.

Oh, what do they say?
but I don't mind at all, I just smile and let go.
Why, what do I know?
I don't know what's right but you obviously are wrong,
I've been here before
and though it could be cool it's not what I want,
sometimes when I'm on my own
I have this obsessive thought
I was like you, like you.
I was like you, like you
I was like you, like you
I was like you, like you
but you'll never be like me.
Track Name: Napoleon sleeps
In the breeze
Napoleon sleeps
on the place he chose to lay and rest
his sad worried head.

I got lost
at his silhouette
and his nose points to the sky
just like his tight aim.

Sleep...

It's ok,
Napoleon stay,
you can have your very own social page,
make new friends today.

Hush now, please,
Napoleon sleep.
Though it can be mean
your past don't mean anything here.

Sleep,
sleep now.

Far from dreams and bright illusions
I guess you can retire for good
or can you?
oh, how I feel like you do,
with no sparks, humor and blues.
Track Name: I feel like I'm done
I've just let my
I've just let myself down
one more time.
I've just let my
I've just let my mind
get heavy and dirty again.
It doesn't feel right,
it doesn't feel ok, oh no,
least I feel something
which is not pain.

And it's lightning up my brain
and it's driving me insane.
I feel like I'm done.

I can't stand my
can't stand myself now
one more time.
I guess what I
I guess what I've found
is way beyond my plans.
And it's not nice
and it's not a game (oh, and not love either),
it's you who's messing
with my mind again.

And you lightened up my brain
but you're driving me insane.
I feel like I'm done.

And you're lightning up my brain
and you're driving me insane.
I feel like I'm done.
At least it's something.
At least it's something.
Track Name: Written on the magazine
I was trying
trying to find myself,
I was fighting
fighting for a chance.
Oh, but sometimes
it's hard enough to stand on my feet,
let alone stand a chance…
when I got caught by a colorful haze
and in a minute I disappeared.
Where have I been?
It's written on the magazine!

I was trying
trying to find a place,
I was looking
looking for somebody else.
Oh, because she
she almost wouldn't notice me,
she thinks that I'm no big deal,
but this is gonna drive her crazy,
everybody's gonna know 'bout me.
You won't believe
what's written on the magazine!
