01 Army Of Me


Stand up
you’ve got to manage
I won’t sympathize anymore

And if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

You’re alright
there’s nothing wrong
self-sufficience please!
and get to work

And if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

You’re on your own now
we won’t save you
your rescue-squad is to exhausted

And if you complain once more
you’ll meet an army of me

02 Hyperballad


we live on a mountain
right at the top
there’s a beautiful view
from the top of the mountain
every morning I walk towards the edge
and throw little things off
like: car-parts, bottles and cutlery
or whatever I find lying around

it’s become a habit
a way
to start the day

I go through all this
before you wake up
so I can feel happier
to be safe up here with you

it’s real early morning
no-one is awake
I’m back at my cliff, still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
on their way down
I follow with my eyes ‘til they crash
imagine what my body would sound like
slamming against those rocks

and when it lands
will my eyes be closed or open?

I go through all this
before you wake up
so I can feel happier
to be safe up here with you

< Terug

03 The Modern Things


all the modern things
like cars and such
have always existed

they’ve just been waiting
in a mountain
for the right moment

listening to all the
irritating noises
of dinosaurs
and people
dabbling outside

all the modern things
have always existed
they’ve just been waiting

to come out
and multiply
and take over

it’s their turn now

< Terug

04 It’s Oh So Quiet


It’s oh so quiet : it’s oh so still
you’re all alone : and so peaceful until

You fall in love (zing! boom!)
the sky up above (zing! boom!)
is caving in (wow! bam!)
you’ve never been so nuts about a guy
you wanna laugh you wanna cry
you cross your heart and hope to die

‘Til it’s over and then
it’s nice and quiet
but soon again
starts another big riot

You blow a fuse (zing! boom!)
the devil cuts loose (zing! boom!)
so what’s the use (wow! bam!)
of falling in love

It’s oh so quiet : it’s oh so still
you’re all alone : and so peaceful until

You ring the bell (bim! bam!)
you shout and you yell (hi ho ho!)
you broke the spell
gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
this guy is gorge and I got hit
there’s no mistake : THIS IS IT

‘Til it’s over and then : it’s nice and quiet
but soon again : starts another big riot

You blow a fuse (zing! boom!)
the devil cuts loose (zing! boom!)
so what’s the use (wow! bam!)
of falling in love

The sky caves in! the devil cuts loose!
you blow blow blow blow blow your fuse!
when you fall in love

Ssshhhhhh…

05 Enjoy


I wish : I want to stay here
I wish : this be enough
I wish : I only love you
I wish : simplicity

Look at the speed out there
it magnetizes me to it
and I have no fear
I’m only into this to

ENJOY

I wish I’d only look
and didn’t have to touch
I wish I’d only smell this
and didn’t have to taste

How can I ignore?
this is sex without touching
I’m going to explore
I’m only into this to

ENJOY

06 You’ve Been Flirting Again


All that she said was true
all that she said was true
give her some time
give her some space
all that she said was true

All that she meant was good
all that she meant was good
give her some time
give her some space
all that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
how you reacted was right
give her some time
give her some space
how you reacted was right

07 Isobel


in a forest pitch-dark
glowed the tiniest spark
it burst into flame
like me : like me

my name isobel : married to myself
my love isobel : living by herself

in a heart full of dust
lives a creature called lust
it surprises and scares
like me : like me

my name isobel : married to myself
my love isobel : living by herself

when she does it she means to
moth delivers her message
unexplained on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

nana na nana : nana na nana

in a tower of steel
nature forges a deal
to raise wonderful hell
like me : like me

my name isobel : married to myself
my love isobel : living by herself

when she does it she means to
moth delivers her message
unexplained on your collar
crawling in silence
a simple excuse

nana na nana : nana na nana
nana na nana : nana na nana

08 Possibly Maybe


Your flirt
it finds me out
teases the crack in me
smittens me with hope

Probably maybe probably love

As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn’t mind, perhaps
spending little time with you
sometimes, sometimes

Possibly maybe probably love

Uncertainty excites me, baby
who knows what’s going to happen?
lottery or car crash – or you’ll join a cult

Probably maybe possibly love

Mon petit vulcan
you’re eruptions and disasters
I keep calm
admiring the lava : I keep calm

Possibly maybe probably love

Electric shocks? I love them!
with you : dozen a day
but after a while I wonder
where’s that love you promised me? where is it?

Possibly maybe probably love

How can you offer me love like that?
my heart’s burned
how can you offer me love like that?
I’m exhausted – leave me alone!

Possibly maybe probably love

Since we broke up
I’m using lipstick again
I’ll suck my tongue
in remembrance of you

< Terug

09 I Miss You


I miss you : but I haven’t met you yet
so special : but it hasn’t happened yet
you are gorgeous : but I haven’t met you yet
I remember : but it hasn’t happened yet

And if you believe in dreams
or what is more important
that a dream can come true
I will meet you

I was peeking : but it hasn’t happened yet
I haven’t been given : my best souvenir
I miss you : but I haven’t met you yet
I know your habits : but wouldn’t recognize you yet

And if you believe in dreams
or what is more important
that a dream can come true
I will meet you

I’m so impatient
I can’t stand the wait
when will I get my cuddle?
who are you?

I know by now that you’ll arrive
by the time I stop waiting

I miss you

< Terug

10 cover me


While I crawl into the unknown
cover me

I’m going hunting for mysteries
cover me

I’m going to prove the impossible really exists

This is really dangerous
cover me

But worth all the effort
cover me

I’m going to prove the impossible really exists

11 Headphones


Genius
to fall asleep
to your tape last night (so warm)

Sounds go through the muscles

These abstract wordless
move : ments

They start off cells
that haven’t been touched before
THESE CELLS ARE VIRGINS
waking up slowly

My headphones
they saved my life
your tape
it lulled me to sleep

Nothing will be the same
I’m fast asleep

I like this resonance
it elevates me
I don’t recognize myself
this is very interesting

My headphones : they saved my life
your tape : it lulled me to sleep

I’m fast asleep now
I’m fast asleep

My headphones
they saved my life
your tape
it lulled me to sleep
