Track Name: Short & Sweet
Short and sweet
No time to waste
Stroke and kiss
But it tastes the same

And it feels the same
And it tastes the same
And it feels the same
Is it over yet?

Pay your man
He keeps you safe
Bite his hand
And you’ll regret

Don’t bite the hand
That feeds you bitch
Don’t bite the hand
Or you’ll regret

You’re the reason
I’m going to prison
You’re the reason
I’m going mad
You’re mine
Only mine


S&M
At your request
No foul play
No accidents

No foul play
No accidents
No foul play
No insurance claim

Lock and key
To hide away
All the things
You can’t explain

They ease pain
They keep you sane
They ease pain
Is it over yet?

You’re the reason
I’m going to prison
You’re the reason
I’m going mad
You’re mine
Only mine

Don’t let them call you
Don’t let them call you ever again
Track Name: Manifesto
You don’t need to understand
You just need a leap of faith
Oh, please don’t turn me in
Kiss me before I leave

I hear Jesus Christ call my name
I never thought that I’d play his game
I never thought that I could be his pawn

It’s in my manifesto
I’ll clean up my homeland
Cold night in the island
Warm hands on my shotgun

I hear Jesus Christ call my name
I never thought that I’d play his game
I never thought that I could be his pawn
Track Name: Goodbye My Friend
Goodbye my friend
I had enough of all your lies today
I’m so fed up
With your lack of commitment, it really brings me down

Goodbye my friend
I had so much for the sake of yesterday
I thought you’d grown up
Spoke to your girlfriend, she said you’d settled down

You don’t realise and that’s it so sad
I was impressed by how self-centred you are
I never guessed how much you were holding back
It’s not right, it’s not right

Goodbye my friend
Where is that present you promised but never arrived
Did you get my text
It’s been ages, and no, you never got back

Goodbye my friend
I’ll have someone else collect my books from your place
Good luck with your band
We played together but it was just a pass time
Track Name: Kurt
He had a good childhood
Was the centre of the family
Could not forgive them
When they took that away from him
Afraid of the man who took his place
Banished in his room
He created another world
The source of his inner force

His blue eyes seduced you
His voice subdued you
His blue eyes burn you
His voice crushed you
One obsession was his life
One obsession took his life

He dropped out of school
He was kicked out of home
He turned to God
In seek of love
Traded guns for guitars
He played in a rock n’ roll band
Everyone thought he sucked
But nevermind
Cause he’ll prove them wrong

The kid had a gift
The kid had a heart
What he loved to create
He loved to destroy
Who thought he’d be rich
Living under a bridge
Who thought he was chaos
And nothing good could come from him
But he’ll prove them wrong
Track Name: Money With No Ties
Toiling, struggling to make ends meet
Squeezed by another year of pay freeze
Payday always comes too late
Promises keep collectors at bay
Ruthless sharks follow the scent

They lied, they said they’d give you
Money with no ties
Their crime, they knew that you
Could only loose

Can’t buy your son a new pair of shoes
They bully him, the other kids call him names
The teacher asks how things are at home
Has your husband found a job
Ruthless sharks close in their prey

Move out of the city
There’s no place for you now
