about

Recorded during January and February 2013 on Cubase 5, Edirol Soundcard, WinXP, not enough ram, crashing pc, crashing effects, but a nice big screen, bass and guitar.
This album is a little more political than the others. Living in Greece, you just can't get away from the bullshit.

Track Name: Boom Kick
Boom Kick
You're tripping
Caught on tape with your good intentions slipping
Narcisist
You're kidding
21st century is turning on a dime

Chorus:
I run like the wind
Away from everything
Into the desert to Mexico
I took my sister and said let's go, go, go

Tragic word slip
Caught on tape with your good intentions showing
Not him
He'll take the fall
When you go hand in hand to the wire tappers ball

Robert DeNiro
Sounds good when you say that he's someone that you know
He's a believer
He has the faith
He's a believer
He has the faith
He's a believer
He has the faith
That it will all work out better if you just stay in one place

But I run like the wind
Away from everything
Into the desert to Mexico
I took my sister and said let's go.
Track Name: Pressure
Pressure
So much pressure
We should be screaming blue murder
So much pressure
We should be screaming blue murder
There's a line we can't cross
There's a cross we can't bear

So much pressure
Crazy anger
Lift the white glove and solute the power
So much pressure
No happy end
Let's go to happy England

Reached my limit
Someone's got their finger on it
Let the drugs do the work
Let the work be the drug

This hand pushes
This hand pulls you in
Violence, rape, loan sharks and bankers
I can't handle the pressure
Crisis, suicide and cancer
I can't handle the pressure

Here we go
Here we go
Putting our heads in the sand
We are broken
Putting our heads in the sand

This hand pushes
This hand pulls you in

Once a week I have a nervous breakdown
I don't think I'm ever coming down
I can't breathe and I can't think straight

We're all in it together
Riding out the bad weather

Track Name: Love doesn't conquer all, but drugs can
Love doesn't conquer all, but drugs can
I'm alive
I'm alive
But I don't know for how long
It's a black and white photograph on my wall
Goodbye Lennie
This is why she loves the drugs
It's what a happy end is made of
You know I'm sensitive to serial killers

Put your crash helmet on
You know we're riding on a missile
We know it's going to go off
But we just don't know when
The world has rolled over
It can even be flat again
Queenie couldn't take it so she stabbed him with a ball point pen
Let me say it again
The girl couldn't take it
So she killed her best friend yeah

Chorus:
You're in the government
Do you have a plan
Love doesn't conquer all, but drugs can
(The streets are alive with pain
We play in the acid rain
And nobody takes the blame)

So a meteor hits the planet and we all watch it on youtube
Saying "oh ah wow imagin that"
You better get under cover and hide
Hide

Chorus:
You're in the government
Do you have a plan
Love doesn't conquer all, but drugs can
The streets are alive with pain
We play in the acid rain
And nobody takes the blame

Track Name: Who's Been Playing God
So far from the moon
So far from the light
Hammer down on the coin
You might just get what you want tonight
We live in a letigious world
No spark no burn for a fast and wreckless girl
Henry thinks it's a conspiracy
When the only threat is the friendly enemy
Too scared to move or say what he feels
What he needs is a fire lighter

There's no interesting people coming to the party anymore
The less you expect, the more walk through the door
What do we really have to talk about
If it hasn't been on facebook
The conversation's out

Chorus:
It's been raining 40 days
Have my metal raincoat on
It feels so long
So wrong
Who's been playing god
I've been drunk for 40 nights
With my gin sling on
I feel so numb

Spitting out blood from behind this hangover
You're not strong enough for this fragile girl
Sleeping all day, but jumping out of your skin
Sinking into quicksand
I don't want to talk anymore
I have nothing to say

Chorus

Track Name: Anniseed
Anniseed
How long has this been going on
What do you really want
Who do you think I am
Me or some second hand woman

I think the sky is black
Because you hurt me babe
I think that thunder breaks
Because of my heartache

Who do you really love
Me or is there someone special
Who do you think you are
Misunderstood and temperamental
Real love
Tastes like anniseed

Chorus:
Real love tastes like anniseed

Friction, conviction, therapy is what I need
The I Ching, the money rings
Reasons to live happily
So I fall back to this
A bottle of happiness

Chorus

I think the sky is black
Because you hurt me babe
I think that thunder breaks
Because of my heartache

Real love tastes like anniseed

Track Name: Sugar Tongue
Sugar Tongue
One day
I will move and I will come
To make you my sugar tongue

Chorus:
Don't you worry
Sugar Tongue
I'm not crazy
Sugar Tongue

I've got you in my head and your taste on my lips
All the good things always go to my hips
But it feels so good
So Nice
One day
I will move and I will come
To make you my sugar tongue

Chorus:
Sugar Tongue
Sugar Tongue

And it feels so good

One day
Don' t you worry
Don't you worry
One day
I'm not crazy
I've got honey

How I got your number?
I just googled it... Is that alright?

Track Name: Blood and Milk
Blood and Milk
Noah overdosed again
He quit the program
In and out of rehab
He is radioactive they said

Valerie calls the ambulance
She knows each step to this dance
He says he'll never do it again
But she knows it's just a matter of when

Chorus:
Blood and milk can be murder
Life is strange
Love will hurt her

Crawled out from a crack in the wall
He's not happy this time
Makes a promise that it's the last time
It can be murder
It can be murder
Make a promise that it's the last time

Life is strange
It can be murder
Life is strange
It can be murder

Chorus
Blood and Milk
Life just hurts

Track Name: Color Blind
Color Blind
Color blind
Take your time
Alien
Shed your skin Ann

Chorus:
Reflecting skin
Let's sunshine in
Reflecting skin

My girlfriends see in primary colors
Shading scares them half to death
They live life through television
Safe and sound in happiness
Yeah

Chorus

Apple tree
Eat from me
Eyes open
Now begin
Yeah

Color blind
Take your time

Track Name: She Eats Mandarines
She Eats Mandarines
She eats mandarines
All the sweet things
Dead wrong
Dead calm
Dead straight
Sweet bait
In the mean season
It's the wrong reason
To be a storm seeker

Chorus:
Psycho killer
Psycho killer

She eats mandarines
She eats mandarines

First stop was the motel on the E29
She let him whisper sweet things
Before she swallowed him alive
She let him whisper sweet things

Chorus

Her eyes are golden brown
Sundays they are green
Psycho baby
Gives them what they need
Dead wrong
Dead straight
Too late

She eats mandarines
Pyscho killer

Track Name: Bitter Delicious
Bitter Delicious
We're all slipping off the edges
We're all tripping over ourselves
Climbing over fences
High fences
To get what we deserve
Follow the road to the end in the hope you find your dreams
How many dead hearts
Waiting
While the world splits at the seams

Chorus:
Reading the book of changes
While I'm waiting for the world to end
We can party with bitter delicious
While we're waiting for the world to end
Follow the sky to the Milky Way
Waiting for the world to end
I can say that I loved you didn't I babe

Who thinks about you with the lights out
Is there anyone who gives a damn
Shadows and light from the bedroom with mosquitos buzzing round my head
Look at the man on the sidewalk in his alligator shoes
Strumming his guitar in the fallout and he's singing us the blues

Chorus

Hide all your love in the mattress
Don't you show them anything
Just nod your head
Keep your mouth shut
While you find something to believe in
Looking through wire to the crosses that our lives have nailed us to
And if you should get restless then there's nothing you can do

Waiting for the world to end
Waiting for the world to end
We can party with bitter delicious
Waiting for the world to end
I can say that I loved you didn't I babe

Track Name: Weirdo
Weirdo
I can tell you without hesitation
Spending time with me will make you go crazy before too long
Too deep, concerned and opinionated
I'm complicated
So spent just thinking how hard I still have to climb
Before I get to where I am headed

I just don't want to explain it anymore
Tell you my life story
Just because you think I'm a weirdo
No I don't want to explain it anymore
Tell you my life story
Just because you think I'm a weirdo

Chorus:
Weirdo

Why would you trust the facts
When most of them are lies
Keep your mind open to the truth that's unbelievable
Too deep, deceit and propagation
Complete annihilation
My friend Mary she's blonde and kicking
Dressed up like Tennesee
Living vicariously
She doesn't want to explain anymore
Tell you her life story
Just because you think she's a weirdo
She doesn't want to explainit anymore
Tell you her life story
Just because you think she's a weirdo
She doesn't want to explain it anymore
Tell you her life story
Just because you think she's a weirdo
She doesn't want to explain it anymore
Tell you her life story
Just because you think she's a weirdo

Chorus

You've been living in the sky
She doesn't want to explain it anymore
Tell you her life story
Just because you think she's a weirdo

Oh brother it's harder to take it than running when I'm tired
Oh boy what a liar the world is turning upside down
You're a mangirl
Boy-child
Uptight don't suicide

Look up in the sky
Jupiter is hanging out with the moon tonight
So am I
Even when I know that you think that I'm a weirdo

Chorus
