1) A CLEVER COMBO (breetveld)  
When all the calendars arrive
Make sure the messenger survives
Take cover opening your eyes
Here comes millennium surprise

And the world’s half crazy
And the world’s half lazy
That’s not a clever combo, is it?
And the world’s half stupid
And the world’s half cupid

The politicomedian’s center stage
New century’s children come of age
The care for millions goes undone
Relax, let’s watch the setting sun

And the world’s half greedy
While the world’s half needy
That’s not a clever combo, is it?
And the world’s made their mind up
And the world’s got their mind down

Strange colour on the lamp tonight
Doesn’t ‘splain why the world’s not bright
There’s a corner of the Earth at peace
With the angel called Elyse
To protect me
(repeat first verse)

2) LOVE HANDLES (breetveld)
 (chorus)
Love handles
Can handle the world
Love handles
Can’t handle my girl

You know me
You know where I come from
It’s so intensive
I tried my best lick
 (repeat chorus)

I know you
You like to hang around
You’re so reclusive
I’m not so lucid
(chorus)
Love handles
Can handle the world
Love handles
Just me and my girl

3) THE CLASS (breetveld)
1- She closed the window and disappeared
I said, "never thought I’d see you"
She said "that’s weird"
Did you see how fat the Fugly twins got?
I haven’t had the pleasure
I heard Jerry got shot
Goodbye, goodbye this time
And don’t stop reading about the class

2-Ruthie died among the rocks
She fell from her teepee
in High Point State Park
Her husband said she’d been depressed
Silly young girl from across the tracks
Goodbye, goodbye Ruthie
You never had faith in yourself
High school reunions terrify
The creeps of yesterday are your best friends

3-Billy had an awful year
His laundry business had washed out
He had six wee ones to support
And seven years payments on his Porsche
Surprise, surprise William
Another kid is on the way

High school reunions terrify
Goodbye to ‘91 and’ 89
The hipsters I once knew are now the average guy
Goodbye to ’81 and ‘79
I don’t remember yesterday
Goodbye ’71 and ‘69

4) TAKE FREEDOM GIVE ME SECURITY (breetveld)
There's a cousin on the hill
And he's getting 'fraid to read the papers
And he's lying very still
Try'n to rectify the difference
'tween the Garden and Grim Reaper
Safety, privilege, which comes cheaper? oh oh oh

Take freedom give me security
Fake freedom I want somebody watching me
Take freedom please take my insecurities and
I won't be too hard to please no no no
(refrain)
Don't stroll through the city tonight
You're in for the night, enough for one day
Take freedom give me security

I don't want to feel alone
This insanity just drives me deeper
Nothing ventured nothing groaned
Unbelievable to live here
In this day of pain and outrage
Send me back to sleep in my cage oh oh oh
(repeat chorus)
Don't go through the roadblock tonight
You'll be shot on sight
(solo)

There's a cousin on the hill
And he's much too 'fraid to read the papers
And he's lying very still
Try to rectify the difference
'tween the Garden and Grim Reaper
Safety, privilege, which comes cheaper? oh oh oh

Take freedom give me security
Fake freedom I want somebody watching me
Take freedom please take my insecurities and
I won't be too hard to please no no no
Brave soul through the city tonight
