WAKE ME UP
wake me up

ANSWER
I want nothing but to feel
a little rubbing and a little wheel
should I be worried? she said will I be fine?
the answer is no
I have something it’s not the wheel
it craves the rubbing and you know the deal
stop talking about the wheel
it’s in my pants and it’s like an eel
you know you want it
she says the answer is no boy I don’t want it

PRETTY GOOD
I’m waiting for a sign from above
I want it to be special and all
I lay there in the grass face down
you read me a poem by your hand and now
I can’t believe I would say it
it was pretty good ‘till the end
I died in it
can’t you write a story
a happy one
one where I won’t get hurt
I can’t believe I would say it
it was pretty good ‘till the end

REALLY WANNA TELL YOU
sit up straight baby
I’ve got something I wanna say
I really wanna tell you
there’s a man in the mirror looking back at me
he’s going: WHY?
I really wanna tell you
I’ve got to let it out
I really wanna tell you
baby there’s no doubt
let me show you
something is off something is not right
something is off is it me or you?
can I tell you? is it the knife or the..
I really wanna tell you
I’ve got to let it out
I really wanna tell you
baby there’s no doubt
let me show you

PARDON ME
I hear a voice saying
I wish it was like it was before
when everything was fine
when I look in the mirror and see my face
I don’t like what I see
I said pardon me
what’s the problem man?
he says part of me
wants to play
I can’t sleep or weep for weeks and I’m alone
but i had to let you go so
I’m punching holes into the walls and I confess
I made a bigger mess
I said pardon me
what’s the problem man?
he says part of me
wants to stay here

ISLAND
I wish I was a fish
I used to be an island
covered in shit
in the ocean of shit
I wish I was a fish y’all
I used to be a mountain
a mountain of shit
covered in shit
now I’m needy
I need you to need me too
I don’t want to be forgotten
sing with me
every day I’ll take a shower
for you I’m clean
I’m needy
need your eyes on me
I need your ears
focus on me
I wish I was a fish
I used to be a turtle
covered in shit (couldn’t care less)
swimming backwards
I nead your ears
I need your eyes on me
I need your ears
focus on me
rather soon than a little later I’ll tell you why
I don’t want to be forgotten sing with me
everyday I’ll take a shower for you I’m clean
do you want to know about me? I’ll tell you soon
I’m a clean man
I’m a changed man
I do it for you
all for you
everyday I’ll take a shower for you I’m clean
do you want to know about me? I’ll tell you soon

BETTER ONE
you’ve got me thinking I should read it out loud
what I’ve written about my honey in the south
I should tell you
I come alive when I’m around you
sadder days behind me
I know your hands are for shaking
but I want little side boob
better days in front of me
hmmm love
I’ve got a new one
I’ve got a better one
I’m not wasted
summer daze in front of me
you’ve got me really needy greedy and loud
you’ve got me thinking I should roll into the south
I should tell you
I found the light inside you
sadder days behind me
I’ve got the plans and I’m shaking
I want to be inside you
better days in front of me
hmmm love
I’ve got a new one
I’ve got a better one
obsessive behavior
I’ve got a new one
I’ve got a better one
I’m not wasted

SMUDGE
don’t call me keep waiting
cuz I sleep during the day time
but in the night in the dark
in the hands of god
I need some love
I need your love
don’t give me a sad face give me a smile
I said oh yeah give me your hand
I go:
smoking drinking fooling around
crawling jumping falling down
set it on fire set it in love set it off
jump!
fall in..

ASSHOLE DOWN (written by: Thomas Aram)
c’mon people hear my call
i know we’ve all been bossed around
but it’s time to show our true potential
and drag that asshole down
we’re gonna drag that asshole down
this world is one ugly business
we keep the best things to ourself
but it’s time to rearrange ourselves
and start trading with someone else
the sun and moon are gonna fade too soon when there’s noone left around
it’s time to show that people wont be bossed around
we’re gonna drag that asshole down

K-HOLE
she lives in the k-hole
she doesn’t eat bagels
she used to love bagels
but not anymore
she lives in the k-holes
she doesn’t eat bagels
now the bagels are out the door
but she don’t know what she’s missing out on
I used to be able
to sit at the table
eat a bagel
but not anymore
she says the a-holes
are eating the bagels
now the bagels are out the door
a piece of dough with a glory hole
who made that hole in the middle?
a piece of dough with a glory hole
who put that hole in the middle?

CANDLES
I have so many candles, baby
let me light em up and poor you some wine
damn fine friend of mine
looking fine, baby!
but I need a little time
she says yeah baby
show me what you’ve got
stop calling me baby and maybe I’ll drink the wine
I’m looking fine
you’re right
but I need a little time
I want it now!

SEXY PANTS
lights out for you
are you eye balling my woman
step back
you’ve got your own friend with you tonight
I know she’s looking good
looking sexy
girl, I love it when you wear those sexy pants
lights out for you
are you eye balling my woman again
my friends they say whoot whoot
when I walk in with you and our game faces on
let’s go this party is dead now
and all the boys are crying cuz you are mine
girl, I love it when you wear those sexy pants

DRINKING TIME 7″

DRINKING TIME
I’m on the telephone
calling you at home
I’m on the telephone with you
making plans for the night
making plans to die a little
follow chino
it’s drinking time
not thinking time
the day time is over
it’s drinking time
not thinking time
now we’re downtown hanging out
I’m fearless and beardless
cold cheap wine in the bag
go chi whine is what you said
I will tell you..
my shoes are dirty
your shoes are nice
I wish the summer would never end
follow chino
it’s drinking time
not thinking time
the day time is over
it’s drinking time
not thinking time
in the end we fought a homeless man
drank cheap wine and kicked a dog
kissed each other and broke some bottles
we held a peeing contest which you won though
forgot to mention our fucking heading
we found a warm nest for the night
I told a story about a careless giant
you held your breath for a little while
we named a star
this was the best night ever
it’s drinking time
not thinking time
I’m in orbit
I will…

CRAZY
go down the river and have a fucking swim
I know it’s not really a river but anyway
my friends told me not to follow you down here
I did it anyway and now I can’t stay
baby I know
the last time I saw you
got a little outta hand
got a little messy
blow me a kiss while I wait by the tree
I look up at the birds way up in the canopy
I drank all this wine and now i have to pee
please hurry up because I don’t wanna be late
baby I know
the last time I saw you
got a little outta hand
got a little messy
on the carpet
and on your towels
when I got to the city
I felt so much better
I bought myself a cookie
I felt so much better
baby I know
the last time I saw you
it got a little outta hand
it got a little messy
on your carpet
and on your towels
I didn’t want to be there anyway
it’s not a river but a lake yeah anyway

ANOTHER ROUND LP

ANOTHER ROUND (written by: Jasja J Offermans)
wasted time feels better now
now that I found relief
it’s not a matter of what you did
as long as you believe
spin another word around
spin another world around
can’t see why you needed me
got stuck in this melody
I can’t see why you needed me
it’s breaking up and it’s heavenly
wish it was as easy
as you make it out to be
stay awake another day
see life as it fades away
spin another word around
spin another world around
can’t see why you needed me
got stuck in this melody
I can’t see why you needed me
it’s breaking up and it’s heavenly

ON AND ON (written by: Jasper Erkens)
pick a number
pick yer number
to wait in line
yer wasted brothers
got eachother
it’s drinking time
honey I
I drink to forget all night
and like this it goes
it goes on and on
on the day that never comes
once you start
you can never stop
it’s not allowed
grab the wheel
spin the wheel
let’s do it right
honey I
I’m to blame
I wanted to change
and forget
it goes on and on
on the day that never comes

KEEP IT TO MYSELF (written by: Martijn Konijnenburg)
I fell down from heaven into hell
when you woke up next to someone else
I break all the things I see
why would you end it all for me
so I said
I keep to myself
don’t want nobody else
when you call I slip and hurt my knee
you already stole my precious memories
you say you wanna spend the day
but I tell you it’s not the way I play
so I said
I keep to myself
don’t want nobody else

I KNOW HOW TO PARTY
suivez moi

follow me
I know how to party

I know how to party
la vache
that’s french too
it means cow
I know how to party

I know how to party

BEAT74
I must be dreaming
this room opened up
it’s a garden now
I can’t believe it
what used to be so damp
is now lush and green
I guess I’m dreaming
there’s a river now
where I used to undress
you don’t want to live boy
but you know how it is
when the sun is up
you always got to give
you don’t want to live boy
but you know how it is
you’re in a dream man
you’ve got to come back
I won’t be leaving
I’m here to stay
in the garden of love
it’s making me feel
like I’m supposed to feel
it’s hiding in your mind too
here’s the deal man
we love out loud
stop crying your eyes out
you don’t want to live boy
but you know how it is
when the sun is up
you always got to give
you don’t want to live boy
but you know how it is
you’re in a dream man
you’ve got to come back

I FEEL SOMETHING
seems like every day
brings me down
can’t shake this feeling
I wear it like a crown
feels like every day
shuts me down
staring at the ceiling
staring ’till it’s dawn
I thought I was dead inside
but I feel something again
when the sun goes down it gets louder
can’t shake this feeling
I wear it like a crown
feels like every day
shuts me down
can’t get to the shoreline
swimming ’till I drown
I thought I was dead inside
but I feel something again

WHEELS
I’m here I’m wanted I get it done
not nearly finished but I am done
my wheels are coming off
sometimes it’s better to leave it alone
sometimes it’s better to give up than go on
I said my wheels are coming off
I like that weed and pills but I am done
I heard your voice on the telephone
I see you riding but I’m done
because the wheels are coming off
stop moving your lips (stop talking)
I said I’m already on it
I’m gonna give in
pills? game on!
I like that weed and pills but I am done
we like that weed and pills but I’m gone
I am done

FOR YOU
I’m on my way
I want to be a better man
let’s get it on
let’s do it right this time
it will be better when I get it done
when I get over you
I hold the keys to the hearts again
what’s the deal with love again
I’m overthinking and overjoyed
I’m excited and a lonely boy
not sure where we’re going with it
are we running from it?
do we leave it at this
i’m here for you
let’s get it on
let’s do it right this time
I’m here for you
I’m here for you
for you
I’m here for you
for you

GIMME A SIGN
oh yeah
I love myself again
oh yeah
I found myself again
baby boy
I’ve got you in my hands
I’ve got your back
I always got your back son
I said please gimme a sign of life
I said please gimme a sign
I know you’re somewhere
walking around
with a little black book in a little black bag
walking for hours
head gone head home
oh yeah
I used to get lost in the head
oh yeah
but I found myself again
I said please gimme a sign of life
I said please gimme a sign
I know you’re somewhere

SEPARATION (written by: Bart van der Elst)
you paint a picture for me
it better be good
you think you know me
I’ve got chills all over
oh yeah
you have changed
it’s separation
you used to be mine
so take the time you need
now the time has come
to show what you’re made of
we’ve got each other by the arm
blink and whistle in the wind
people be watching
so you live your life
sunbeams touch what I cannot reach
building up myself brick by brick
I learned to be near you is a mistake
though sometimes I wish I was you
now the time has come
to show what you’re made of
we’ve got each other by the arm
blink and whisle in the wind
people be watching
so you live your life
chained and sad and happy all at once
you used to be mine
I used to be yours

BEHAVE
I must behave
I’m the storm of the century
the weird ones riot
I hooked you in but can you let go?
I am insane
I build a hut in the forest and I sleep inside it
I hooked you in but can you let it go?
put your coat on
don’t look at me
leave this place
and leave no trace
hide your love for me
I can’t be tamed
don’t tell me I can’t run don’t try me
I hurt you when can you let it go?
put your coat on
don’t look at me
leave this place
and leave no trace
sometimes it’s better to give up
than try to move on
make a fire when the sun goes down
open the bottle and down it and drown
put your coat on
don’t look at me
leave this place
and leave no trace
hide your love for me

MR. NICK
I know your name
I know you’re insane
I know two wicked games to play
so here’s your whiskey
all night long he drank

THE B-SIDES EP

LOOKS GOOD (written by: Thomas Aram)
why’d you bring your high heels to the beach?
why’re you wearing yer pyamas in the steets?
why’re you wearing yer sunglasses in the shower?
why’re you changing yer underwear every hour?
because it looks good
you know it looks so good
because it looks good
you know it looks real good
because it looks good
because it looks good
why’re you wearing that big fat fur coat?
why’d you put disco lights in yer over man?
why’d you color yer hair deep purple?
is that yer backpack or are you trying to be a turtle?
why’re you flexing yer muscles in the mirror?
is that a handle bar moustache in the middle?
why’re you making such a fuss about that top hat?
why’re you making such a fuss about that stolen rug?
because it looks good
you know it looks so good
because it looks good
you know it looks real good
because it looks good
because it looks good

BURNING BLUE (written by: Peter Kriek)
I had enough of you
if only dreams came true
tell me something new
I could’ve loved you
I had enough of you
if only you’d be true
there’s nothing I can do
the nights are burning blue
there’s one thing that I know
bitch you gotta go
I could’ve loved you so
come rain come sun and snow

BEAT24
my lies and their lovers
at nights ending I don’t want it
I took it and I got it
now I wanna get ??? 
next stop the other room
they want it and we got it
i’ve got knifes and big bottles
I’ll take you to the man with the colors
ahh there’s Freddy
he’s got something you need
I took it and I got it
wow wanna get ???
same old the party gets cold
what are we doing I want to be alone
same old the party gets cold
the women are gone I want to be alone
I wont name names but someone’s a buzzkill
don’t be like that son of a bitch
son of a bitch
i’m gonna get you now you bitch
I was on my way to a magical place
you got in my way again
same old the party gets cold
what are we doing I want to be alone
same old the party gets cold
the women are gone I want to be alone
I’m leaving motherfuckers
where are my keys?
where’s my phone?
where are my shoes?

 DEEP END EP

SMILES
come on please your man
and put a good idea in your head
startover
when I get up in the morning
I light up my cigarette
I’ve got my soul
I got hurt
but now I know
when I look at your face
I can smile again


OUTTASPACE

forget the mission
I’m on a mission
I’m a chameleon now
I wanna get high
I wanna get low
I wanna get into the bends but
you’re here now
sent from outtspace to get her
you make sure you never forget her
sent from outtaspace to get her
but the light in your eyes is fading as we speak
I made a cult
I trained the cult
it was mine
you were in it
but you wanted to get out
I forgot my mission
sent from outtspace to get her
you make sure you never forget her
sent from outtaspace to get her
but the light in your eyes is fading as we speak
cowboy you’re lookin at the girls
cool boots on
cool hat on
pockets full of gold
you’re riding high on the horse
mothafukka
you’re here
sent from outtspace to get her
you make sure you never forget her
sent from outtaspace to get her
but the light in your eyes is fading as we speak


DEEP END

say goodbye to the ones you love
you’ll be leaving soon
don’t believe me?
look at the stars
look at the map the old lady drew for you
it was in a gypsy place
she read your mind
and slapped your face
you went out for a swim
now you’re stuck in the deep end
you want to play the game
but you suck at defence
first: I don’t believe what’s written in the stars
second: that old lady
she was a shill and not well
it was a shabby place
and oh the smell
she read your mind
and slapped your face
you went out for a swim
now you’re stuck in the deep end
you want to play the game
but you suck at defence
I want to play but it depends
do I have to defend
I’m not in the mood
I’m singing the blues

BABY
I want to be a baby
held up in your arms
I want to leave the world behind
and stay here for a while
stopped caring about anything in the world
stopped believing anything I heard
I want to be a baby
held up in your arms
I want to leave the world behind
and stay here for the night

PSYCHOMIND
*phonecall transcript coming soon*

CYGNUS
you left me when you had enough
I messed up and the dirt is washed
who needs me now
the love is gone
my love is gone
I wanna leave
I wanna fly into the sun
I wanna leave
and dissolve in to the one
sad and lonely citizen
I wanna leave
I wanna fly into the sun
I wanna leave
and dissolve into the one
guess I will leave soon
even though you warned me
I got addicted anyway
guess I bleed
I wanna leave
I wanna fly into the sun
I wanna leave
and dissolve in to the one
sad and lonely citizen
I wanna leave
I wanna fly into the sun
I wanna leave
and dissolve into the one

HANG U UP (Dead Weather cover)
I never know how to treat you
you say you love me but it ain’t true
I’m walking away now
one step forward and back two
I’d like to grab you by the hair
and hang you up from the heavens
I don’t know how to let you go
or if I should keep you
I don’t know how to let you know, hey
I really do got a reason
I’d like to grab you by the hair
and hang you up from the heavens
I never know why I push you
just to confuse you
I make a hole just to see how
see through me how I push you
I’d like to grab you by the hair
and hang you up from the heavens

COFFEEBUZZ
the percolator coffee maker
our saint and savior
mornings former daze is gone
my soul is hungover
I and my fomorian friends are headless drinkers
I lost control
the percolator coffee maker
our saint and saviour
like evil snakes and trouble makers
heavenly intoxicated
in the poisenous landfill
we call the bars and taverns
those spirits are the spirrit killers
my soul is hungover
we come from under the sea of ethanol
we let the good times roll
I lost control
(I can tase the sugar)

RELAPSE

hey baby I’m gonna make you mine
gimme some suger
gime a kiss now

not looking for trouble it’s just a ride
pills bumps goosebumps at the end of the night
relapse
get together and have some fun
let’s get together while we’re still young
you’re the queen of the night I’m the king of lies
we should get together before we’re 45
(shot me right in the heart)
you and I get it done
I’m pretty wasted but we get it done
lo and behold there’s another game we play
should we throw ourselves away like this I said
relapse
(shot me right in the heart)
get together and have some fun
let’s get together while we’re still young
you’re the queen of the night I’m the king of lies
we should get together before we’re 45
get together and have some fun
let’s get together while we’re still young
let’s get a gun and shoot for fun
shoot me in the heart because it’s never enough
it’s never enough!

DAN KNOWS
yeah you know Dan
Dan fucking Lancley
he’s from the GB
he knows things
he knows any knows
things
he is right I do know things
per exemple 
if you know.. you lived in France and speak like a fucking moron
this is what you might say
for example 
one of the things I know 
is that rabbits are not legally aloud to go on ferries
it’s part of maritime law
‘cause when it was wooden boats 
they used to chew through the fuching things
so yeah 
that’s one of the thins I know
it’s not the way I’m wired
we’re talking about the same problems
always
I’m begging you now
stop moving lips moving mouths plug your ears
I’m breaking down walls
I keep on bangin’ now there’s something about her
it’s not the way I’m wired
and no one wants to smell your Minnesota odor
it’s like it’s lost it’s in it’s always in between
it’s not the same it’s slow and no one’s getting on
I want to take it slow and make it so and hate you so
let me soften the blow
I guess that I’m to blame
always
you know it’s all the same to me now
I also know that dog spelled backwards is god
I also know that whenever you’re embarking on a roadtrip
and you’re a little bit lost
and you come across like an old deserted barn
but there’s like a chicken stood on a rock
if he’s lookin’ at you and i mean 
right. fucking. at. you.
you might as well turn around and go home
‘cause you’ll have no luck there today
these are facts
it’s not the way I’m wired
we’re talking about the same problems
always
I’m not the same boy
I might be lost but I’m never ever gone
let me ride the wave
and in this moment let me be your problem
I reckon I can get another 24hrs out of this session
I feel strong..

LOCK DAN
fam we’re in lockdown
I was literally…
the fucking shops over here are deserted
they are barren little stations of hatred
and there’s no eggs
you literally can’t even get a chicken
you can’t even get a chicken to make the egg
ummmm so yeah
I was literally prepared to dilute my jack daniels with human piss
it’s the way the world’s going mate
you gotta clock in log on and shit out
they’re all the same to me
I drop it like it’s hot
I know you feel the same
we’ll work it out as we go
I like the flaky ones
I run ’em down like a dog
let’s run ’em down man
like a pack of dogs
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s nothing wrong with this
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s nothing wrong with me
stop running around
I like it loud
stop being a bitch about it let this man go
I like the flaky ones
I drop it like it’s hot
I like to get ’em to the docks and drown ’em out
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s nothing wrong with this
there’s nothing wrong with me
there’s nothing wrong with me
I drown ’em out

LOCH NESS DAN
did you just say wink or did you actually wink?
I ponder to myself
ok let’s try this again
if you say wink do you actually wink or did you just text it?
how does this work?
well just to clear this matter up
apart from a personal point of view
I tend to say the word wink whilst simoultaneously winking
but for the purpose of full disclosure
I often fuck up the word wink and turning it into a blink
it’s my own personal dilemma that I deal with
so what happens with you?
do you say and wink?
try and le me know
I’m on the edge of my seat
she knows my name
she knows my other face
she knows I’m here for all to see
I need you body and your soul for me
just for me
to dance for me
I need a body and a soul for me
to dance for me
I remember when you talked to me
with your wicked eyes and your dark hair
when you were talking shit
I need somebody to come home to me
just for me
to dance for me
I need somebody to control and bleed
just for me
to bleed for me
just for me
