Track Name: Pretty Girl
Pretty Girl

The first time that I saw her
She was marching on a parade in the avenue
She was demonstrating
Everything she wanted
Everything she needed

Oh pretty girl
With the long long nails

I wish I could take a photo
I'd keep it in my office up on the wall
I'd tell my son it's art
He wouldn't mind looking at her at all
The way she moves like a dancer
Reminds me of a princess stuck in a castle

Oh pretty girl
With the confidence of a man

The way she dances down the street
It looks like a merry-go-round lost in space
I look at her thighs moving fast
It looks like she has at least seven of them
Her hips go up and down
And I can see something as she turns round

Oh pretty girl
With the confidence of a man
Track Name: Las Vegas Made Me Sad
Las Vegas Made Me Sad

Everybody
Is spending their Money
Like zombies
They keep pressing their Cassino Machines
It’s hard to believe but
Las Vegas made me Sad

Look at all these jerks
They do too much effort
To look like they’re having such fun
While the beggars are out cookin’ in the sun
Nobody cares but
Las Vegas made me sad

There’s a Japanese dealer
That won’t trust your ID
She won’t even tell you if
You loose the game (‘cause she’s not in the mood to)
I made twenty bucks but
Las Vegas left me broke

Everywhere I look there’s
Something that reminds my own world
All the news of home you read
Just give you the blues
I ain’t gonna spend my money no more
‘Cause Las Vegas made me sad
Track Name: Better Person
Better Person

The truth is that I still hold grudges from you
It’s been so many years and I wish I was mature
And accept your silent apologies
But I guess I’m not that easy going person
That knows how to deal with the past

Five years past
And I’m still afraid of you
Five years past
And my worst nightmare come true
But just for tonight
‘Cause tomorrow I’ll be a better person

Guess I was right that whole time
It wasn’t just neurosis from my sick mind
I may want you to admit it
C’mon admit it
I was right
I was seeing clear

Five years past
And I’m still afraid of you
Five years past
And my worst nightmare come true
But just for tonight
‘Cause tomorrow I’ll be a better person

Calmin’ down
There’s nothing to worry
Nothing to threaten
Nothing to fear
Sounds like a silly joke
No more feelings to joke
I can breathe
I can rest
Feel the air on my chest
Track Name: Sad Affair
Sad Affair

Oh this love
Is a sad affair
I don't know what you're doing
But that just ain't fair

Oh ma
What a sad affair
You've tried to grow me
But that wasn't my plan

Oh this labour
Is such a sad affair
Everything I do
Is for those stupid men

Oh this town
Is placed a sad affair
People are invisible
And no one sees you there

Oh this girl
She's such a sad affair
She can't have it all
She doesn't even care

Oh this life
What a sad affair
You spend your life tryin'a'hide
And soon you will be dead
Track Name: Spirit Desire
Spirit Desire

Young spirit is searching
It has the angry youth's passion
It has delusions of a history book

Young hurricane is whirling
It has distinguished opinion
It has distinguished appearance

Spirit Desire
We will fall

Young spirit is highlighted
It has the energy of a lion
It's setting guitars on fire

Young blooming doesn't give a shit
It's not supposed to be perfect
It's not making much sense

Spirit Desire
We will fall

Young spirit's lost
Track Name: Noise Ring
Noise Ring

In a dark room
Curtain shuts
Low beam
Density
Suddenly
The carpet turned
A noise ring

And I feel Like
I've been
Dropped from
Somebody's hand

A huge crowd
For a tiny space
Everyone sits
So we can see
Suddenly
She leaves
And ain't coming back

And I feel Like
I've been
Dropped from
Somebody's hand

When he came
He crossed the stage
The noise blast
Blew my ears
Suddenly
The lights are out
And he disappears

And I feel Like
I've been
Dropped from
Somebody's hand
Track Name: Bohemian's Agony
Bohemian’s Agony

I sat the beauty on my lap
And I felt
The bitterness
Of a life
Made of excess

I ran from misery
Looked for constancy
And created
A Whole war
Against Myself

Oh the spring
Turned me an idiot
I can’t help it
How sad
My own self pity

Lying there in the mud
Crime neighborhood
Tried to fool
My own madness
I’ve booked my season
In hell
With all the poets
That once stepped
This land

Oh the spring
Turned me an idiot
I can’t help it
How sad

The spring
Turned me an idiot
I can’t help it
How sad
My own self pity
Track Name: She Said
She Said

Pressing herself against the pane
She turns to not face his crazy eyes
Looks out the road and car lights
She doesn’t wanna touch his arm
Feels dizzy but that’s just his charm


He insists, he won’t take no
She has no right to turn him down
Only with a look or a frown
Like she did to so many before
‘Cause he tried even more

But she said Stop
Get your shit away
I don’t even know you well
And I don’t care
‘bout your sick plans

He moans as if it’s a tough game
That’s just his disgusting joy
Acting as if he found a toy
She feels like a puppet on strings
There’s no desire so she’ll cut off his fake wings

But she said Stop
Get your shit away
I don’t even know you well
And I don’t care
‘bout your sick plans
Track Name: I Hate My Job
I Hate My Job

What’s the meaning of this?
I’ve been waiting for a chance
To practice what I’ve been taught
Thirst brought me to this hole
Where I’ve been stuck

No, I won’t
I deny

What’s the meaning of this?
I’ve been waiting for a chance
To get out of this machine
Hunger brought me to this line
Where I’ve been stuck

No, I won’t
I deny
