Track Name: Phantom Psychosis
blind eyes and the most naive lies
that you’ll give me an eternal bliss
I’m close to overdose of your placebo pills
a disease you try to heal does not exist, why don’t you believe
that the last dance of innocence is over for me ?

I’m sorry to say that
I’m not what you expect

standing here, I’ve got nothing to hide
from now on you won’t see me around
in this place where we don’t belong
I’m off to where the music’s born
riding on this rock’n’roll wave…wow

blind eyes, the most cruel lies
you only care for your own bliss
now I am overdosed of your placebo pills
but still no light or fireworks, it’s only in your head
the ring of innocence is closed for us till the end

I’m sorry to say that
I’m not what you expect
Track Name: Don't Wake Up The Swan
she moves the way you’d like to move
she does the things you’d like to do
she lives the life you’d like to live
she dreams a dream you’d like to dream

a sleeping princess in your heart
don’t wake her up, don’t wake her up
a sleeping princess in your heart
she’s all you’ve got…

I’ve tried to wake her up one day
she looked at me and flew away
do you have dreams ? because I don’t
to have them back is all I want

please don’t wake up the swan

she thinks the way you’d like to think
she is the one you’d like to be
she says the words you’d like to say
she sleeps inside your heart today

a sleeping princess in your heart
don’t wake her up, don’t wake her up
a sleeping princess in your heart
she’s all you’ve got…

I’ve tried to wake her up one day
she looked at me and flew away
do you have dreams ? because I don’t
to have them back is all I want

please don’t wake up the swan
Track Name: More or Less Depressed Vampire Protest Song
hey stranger, where did you leave your smile?
since we met last time
you’ve kind of changed your style
colours you always used to like
were never black and white
but now it’s all you see
tell me, what happened to you, mate
your crazy escapades
when did you start to fade ?

teethmarks on your neck
maybe you’re not dead
but they made you obey
it’s more or less the same…

bitten by a vampire, bitten by the empire

sunset, you’re waiting for the sunset all day long
behind the curtain of black roses’ thorns
‘cause the sun may burn your eyes
cool victim of our time

teethmarks on your neck
maybe you’re not dead
but they made you obey
it’s more or less the same…

bitten by a vampire, bitten by the empire
Track Name: Alternate Ego
sometimes I feel my head explode
my brain is sprayed over the walls
I cannot stand my thoughts inside
I cannot stand those two guys fight

all the words that can’t be told
are trapped within my two-faced soul
what has happened to me?
the mirror shows my face no more

(I see a stranger in there, he says…)
hello, I’m your alternate ego
if you like me, if you don’t
I will be here all night long
let’s go to the other side

midnight, outside on the street
my head is spinning with an echo of that tune
through a black door in the darkest corner of this town
I follow the scent of her perfume
so many people talking and laughing
and drinking to flush away the emptiness of next morning
me too, I realize I’ll need another drink…
the band onstage, ghosts in the cigarette smoke
a quiet sound,
just the singer is screaming his lungs out
then she walks into the room
stealing every single pair of eyes
but she doesn’t care, she just listens to that man

hello, I’m your alternate ego
if you like me, if you don’t
I will be here all night long
let’s go to the other side

and I would like to hear myself speaking to my ear
you can cross the borders, only tonight
(WTF? ...who’s there?)
you can touch the stars...alright
Track Name: Mad Romance
another midnight drive outside of the town
a little drunk, a little bit of freedom we found
we’re making love on the roof of your car
and when you come, a star falls down
running deep into the womb of the night
to be reborn in the morning light
but nothing ever changed at the next sunrise
they’ll turn the page and lock our hearts in cage

but we are breaking out
almost every night
so dance! dance! dance!
oh what a mad romance

this is a kind of a casual story
about love and so-called drunken glory
when you don’t know why or how
but you’re driving like crazy somewhere far

another midnight drive ended up in the town
like a strange dream about new world we have found
we have our love and that’s the petrol of life
so come on girl, it’s your turn to drive!

we’re breaking out
almost every night
so dance! dance! dance!
oh what a mad romance
Track Name: A Night at The Freak Hotel
you’re peeling off my skin
like I was a rotten tangerine
take a juicy bite
and spit it out
I’ve got a bitter heart…because of
la la la la lies in your beautiful eyes

those little secrets we all have
don’t take it, baby, to your grave
it’s time to scream it out
so scream out loud
come on

what’s on your mind?
when you walk the streets of a neon town
what’s on your mind?
when you lock the door of your room each night
what’s on your mind? when you close your eyes
here’s my lullaby
but you will never sleep well
in this dirty freak hotel

those little secrets we all have
don’t leave them inside freak hotel
it’s time to scream it out
to bring it out
onto the light
la la la la lies in your beautiful eyes

what’s on your mind?
when you watch TV and feel a strange disgust
what’s on your mind?
when you smile, when you drink,
when you fuck, when you cry
what’s on your mind? when you close your eyes
here’s my lullaby
but you will never sleep well
in this dirty freak hotel
Track Name: Moon Chase Polka
driving in your car I wonder what’s this all about
chasing after Moon across a quiet sleepy town
let’s pull it down! let’s pull it down!
let’s pull it down to our cold and frozen ground

let’s cut the rope that keeps it tied to the Earth
let’s fly away and escape from the truth
oh what a night! oh what a night!
sometimes you need a proof that you are still alive

I’ve been to all parties, but wasn’t too impressed
I was reading poetry and listening to jazz
sometimes having sex, I know it’s not allowed
but my heart just don’t beat right
when you’re not around

lying with you on the bed waiting for the time
biting your legs I’m moving up to your sky
you’re screaming now! you’re screaming now!
we broke the rules of reality and time, love

now take my hand and walk away from the line
I hate the fools who always think they’re right
let’s kick some ass! let’s kick some ass!
let’s say goodbye and send them back to the past

there are many places they call a paradise
I said: “shove it up your face!”
and got beaten by those guys
but if I was religious, then you would be my god
‘cause my heart just don’t beat right
when you’re not around

I’ve been to all parties, but wasn’t too impressed
I was reading poetry and listening to jazz
I have stolen all the stars
from the sky above your face
but can’t conquer your heart…I call this a Moon chase

walking down the station the night you took the train
I met a boy who had no eyes and he made me realize
that he lost his sight, but it’s me who was blind
my heart just don’t beat right when you’re not around
Track Name: The Day After I Killed My Girlfriend
what’s the time ?
there’s no tick-tock
stereo pumps a funeral waltz
drastic awaking in the dark it’s so cold
when did you leave, my love ?
where did you go ?

is this a nightmare or a psychotic mind ?
the bottle is empty, so is this night
the TV is screening some low budget porn
I hear the ringing, but can’t answer the phone

my face on the floor
I give up the fight
small carpet people tied me too tight
I look like Guliver, who was trapped in the sleep
with horrors in mind
that his true love was killed

no no no NO!!!!
I’m screaming out loud
loosing consciousness
I feel like a clown
policemen knocking on my unlocked door
what did you do last night ?
where did you go, mister ?

lights don’t shine
the music has stopped
this room full of shadows is my private world
and I don’t hear him asking twice,
I don’t give a fuck
what happened outside of this carnival house

take off your mask of white porcelain
the wolves are in town
so where have you been ?
when she was screaming for help,
when she was facing the end
‘cause you are the last one
who was seen holding her hand

yeah I held her hand,
I remember now
those tears in her eyes in the moment she died
I kissed her goodnight for one last time
tell me why... why? why?

yesterday night was a full-moon, my God
hands covered with fur
my teeth were too sharp
I met her down there, I couldn’t explain
I’m a werewolf, sweetheart, please run away!!!
…I loved her too much
