NO CIGAR 

Tell us where you're from, what you want to become.
And we'll say if you're OK Where did you go to school?
Right answer and you're cool, yeah, you're the kid the whole day
You get a sticker in your face. Information about the case, so you know your potential.
Don't you think you can extend. Don't you think you can extend, just comprehend.
But I don't wanna hear it, no, it's more than I accept

I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.

We will shut you out. We'll put you in doubt if you think that you're special.
We'll tell you who you are. Tell you that you're close but no cigar.
But, I don't wanna hear it, no, it's more than I accept.

'Cause I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.
And I won't waste my time fitting in.
'Cause I don't think contrast is a sin.

What they say is...
Go back where you came from.
They'll tell you that but I don't wanna hear.
No, I don't wanna hear. No, I don't wanna hear it.
No, it's more than I accept.

'Cause I don't care where I belong no more.
What we share or not I will ignore.
And I won't waste my time fitting in.
'Cause I don't think contrast is a sin.
No, it's not a sin.



FOX

I met a fox the other day.
When I asked how much she cost, I had to pay.
All of a sudden I'd brought her home.
She's one hundred kilos dressed in silverchrome.

She's my world, she's so rad.
She's the best ride I ever had.
She's my life, she's so bad.
She's the best ride I ever had.

When I imagine me and her.
You know that I get a stand-up fur.
I give her oil, I give her gas,
And get her seat beneath my ass.
Then the turtledoves drive away.

She's secondhand, so what ? She's true, she's by my side.
For all I care she's hot, she's a real good ride.
When we go out people stop and stare with jealous minds.
It's OK for me as long as they let her be...
To prevent something like a theft I got her locked around a tree.



MATERIAL BOY 

I'm leaving the Wat. To Buddhism no longer loyal.
I'm breaking my heart, as my compassion to the third world turned to greed.
Bye bye, real Mc Coy, no ideals as if I was royal.
Now, I'm a material boy. There's nothing in this world I don't think I need.

Now I'm shopping, I'm not stopping.
There will always be new stuff to buy and I'll expand my needs somehow.

I bought an iMac and mouse, a phone to go with my new spirit.
Next step might be a house, six bedrooms and pool just for me.
I will live like a Tsar, the beggars chant won't hear it.
I'll have a boat, new TV and car. And in my mouth a fat Cuban cigar.

Now I'm shopping, I'm not stopping.
There will always be new stuff to buy and I'll expand my needs somehow
I'll expand my needs somehow I swear.



DUCKPOND

Everybody is leaving from this town and from me.
They've got the burning flame, they sure achieve their aim.
You know that's tough for me to see.
Oh, how I wish that I could do the same as them and go.
Just pack my bags and good-bye, get out fast or fade away real slow.

What you see is what you get right here, where a change is nowhere near.
What you see is what you get from me. In this duckpond, leave me be.

I pretend my life is perfect like the faces on TV.
Yeah, that's the only way to face another day, try to deny the misery.
But those are the ways of looney's and like a clown, yeah, I do act
No matter where I could be or would like to go, I'm stuck here. That's a fact.

I'm too weak I'm down on my knees. Too feeble for something new.
Feels like there's nothing I can do.
Keep on laughing 'bout me, keep on doing your own,
But someday I will be that one. Be that one,
yeah, someday I will be that one...



RIGHT ABOUT NOW

I gotta get me a grip and be strong.
Gotta show I can rip, moving on.
As I trembling, It's not ending.
Gotta avoid to make slips and meet nongs.

'Cause I want it, yeah I wanna live my life.
I wanna live my life in this world.
And I need it, yes I need it,
yeah, I need to spend my days on this earth.

I gotta learn to say NO, disallow.
Well, it's my turn to go pro, right about now.
I've been fading for too long, degrading.
I gotta earn me some dough, this is how.

At 23, I was far from feeling free.
At 24, my life was a big bore.
Now I'm 25 and I'm still not high,
yeah, I'm 25 but still alive.
I'll never give up until I reach my goal, until I reach my goal...
Controlling body and soul.



PENGUINS & POLARBEARS 

I don't want you to know too much about me, oh no.
'Cause I know you'll take advantage of the words that I say.
You're looking for a way to depress me, make me pay.

You don't want me to be too close around you 'cause I would see.
All the weak sides that you got, but which you're trying to hide.
You know that I would nail you if I could nurse my pride.

You're on the top when I'm low.
As soon as you're fading I will grow.
I don't like you. You don't like me.
We're lacking energy,
yeah, we're lacking energy.

It's a mindgame we play. Rule the roost, major clicheī.
While one of us is fit the other's going insane.
And every time we think the positions will remain.

You're on the top when I'm low.
As soon as you're fading I will grow.
I don't like you. You don't like me.
We're lacking energy,
yeah, we're lacking energy.
So you got me up against the wall
and I'm only waiting for your fall.
I'll get back on top and be carefree.
It's not the end for me, no it's not the end for me.

I know we're thinking the same and our opponent's the one to blame.
Thinking this way is not something that we both longed for.
Living this way is something we never did plan.
But I don't think we will change,
'cause we're stuck in roles as other's antipoles.



HELLMAN 

No matter what I feel for you, those three words I can't say.
I regret the times I used the word OK.
I know how much it means when people show they really care.
Of the value in honesty, I'm quite aware.
But still there's much in me that I don't share.

Don't have the guts to say what I think.
I'm too scared to say what I think of you.

The other way around I'd say I function the same way.
The darker sides of me I underplay.
Afraid to get into conflicts, afraid to tell you, NO.
Though I know this weakness keeps me low.

There's so much inside me that I don't show.
Somethings I can never show. Why I don't know.....

Don't have the guts to say what I think.
I'm too scared to say what I think of you.
I'm too scared of what I really think of you.



DEVIL ME

Yes, I'm a Yugoslav, indeed a Swede.
Got two brothers, girlfriend, dad and mom.
Good boxershorts I need, lots of maps I read.
I would love to run my own farm.

I like the Beatles, funk and punk.
I watch hockey, basketball, play chess.
I eat veggie-junk and I love Superchunk.
To boule and travel I say yes.

All this I adore at the same it's just me.
It's what I care for, it's what I want to be.

I want it all, I want it all to stay right here.
I want it all to be a part of Slick Nick's sphere.
I want it all to be sincere where ever I go.

Lisa, Madonna are girls who knows where it's at
and Dr. Kris is a favorite rocker.
My main star is Miat, we have a car, a Fiat.
Yeah, still my dearest sport is soccer.

I'm not an ace on bass, it's what I face.
But yeah, I think it's king to sing.
Sailingboats I chase, I'd like to go into space.
Riding my silverfox is the real thing.

I want it all, I want it all to stay right here.
I want it all to be a part of Slick Nick's sphere.
I want it all to be sincere where ever I go.
Where ever I go, Where ever I go, Where ever I...
All around the world I go, Pennybridge, Belgrade and even T.O.



STOP TO THINK

You never wanted me to go.
You didn't dare to let me know.
That luck could turn back to my side.
I knew my wishes qualified,
so why won't you let me show who I am.

I'm not doing this because of you.
And I, I'm not here because you want me to.
I know you're feeling you can see me through.
Well, it's all lost the moment I stop to think.

Now I'm leaving you in fear,
but I will come back every year to be the fifth wheel you don't need.
I'll be a reason for you to speed.
So why won't you let me show who I am.

The moment I stop to think, same moment as I start to sink.
Sometimes I wish I were like you, so why won't you try to see who I am.



THE MAYFLY

Everythingīs complete, the newly wed syndrome.
The mayfly hit the street, everybody in plus.
Burnt out as can be, watching you go home.
It's crystal clear to me, you no longer need us.
It's OK we'll come around.

Now there's nothing left for us, we're packing up, saying goodbye.
To a place no one can trust. To a scene based on a lie.
I truly hope we won't retreat. The same mistake we won't repeat.
The bond was stabile as a shed.
Love is mutual, love is dead.

Everything went great with lot's of beginners luck.
The mayfly on a skate, timing in perfection.
Bored out as can be, monkey's getting stuck.
The four of us agreed we need to follow the action,
where ever that might be...

Here I go, I'm tired about what all you say.
-Just one show, you owe it to the kids, so play!
That's all bull, the main thing's that we're having fun!
Said and done, said and done, I don't owe a shit to anyone.



HIGHWAY DONKEY

When I was younger I did not know how to be.
I lived my own lie and I never asked the question why.
I always talked and dressed like everyone 'round me.
Where were my own view and my own thoughts?

I didn't have a clue. Insecurity, no confidence that's my style.
I did some false things, you'd say I was playing the wrong strings.
To realize and see how lost I was, it took a while.
But it was worth it 'cause now I'm much more confident and fit.

I'm not going down the highway,
'cause I had the might to stop and turn around before it was too late.
Instead I'm slowly going my way and if I don't reach the top,
I still got lots right here I appreciate.

Just because I'm older now does not mean I'm complete.
Yeah, I still have got fear, it's not as strong but it's still here.
And I'm confused at times, but now I know where to put my feet.
Right in my own trail, that's the only place if I don't wanna fail.



A-TEN 

I'm holding you as you feel scared and small.
You've lost someone you love and it's her you're thinking of.
It's all that matters to you right now and it will be like this for long.
I'll be close to you, won't hide 'cause I know you need me by your side.

You wanna see her back again.
You wanna see her back into this world.

These past few months have been the toughest of your life.
You've lost someone you love and there's no greater pain above.
I know how close you were you two and the joy and love you shared.
It was sweet for me to see but now it's aching inside me.
If only she could see you now. Deep inside I think she can somehow.
She'd be the happiest mom, she'd be so proud. She'd laugh and smile.
-Shut up you're dreaming ! You're screaming at me loud.
And that's the way you really feel.
Back into this world...



PEPPER

So you ain't got all your chickens home.
From what I do recall you don't have incurable syndromes.
So don't you worry 'bout a single thing.
Don't you hurry, you're a future-king.

I know it's all in you, just gotta find out what you wanna do.
I know it's all in you and deep inside you feel it too.

They say you're lazy and don't wanna work.
It's not too crazy not to wanna slave, you're not a jerk.
So don't you doubt about your future plan.
You're a knockout and I'm your biggest fan.

You know it's up to you. You always have an option
to choose what you wanna do, take control or run and hide.
It's OK to take a fall, if you have good intentions.
As long as you give it all, youīll feel good inside.

I know it's all in you, just gotta find out what you wanna do.
I know it's all in you and deep inside you feel it too.
I know it's all in you, the common sense, splendid point of view.
I know it's all in you, all your dreams they can come true.



THE BALLAD

The last selection in the ballgame.
Does never get a pass. Not appreciated's just his first name.
He's the scapegoat of the class.
There are no friends to cheer him up and no girls, no sweet romance.
It's impossible to expand, when you never get a second chance.

Do you know, who's that guy, who's all alone?
Do you care enough to see? He's in pain and misery.

He's not going to the school-prom. He said he had the flu.
Trumped-up excuses as he told mom.
- Iīm safer here with you.
She told her son.
- Someday, they'll all be sorry for mistreating you.
Don't be afraid my son and trust me,
-You'll be someone they will look up to.

Do you know, who's that guy, who's all alone?
Do you care enough to see? He's in pain and misery...
Do you care to see?

Do you know, who's that guy, who's all alone?
Do you care enough to see? He's in pain and misery.
