1. (She's In A) Bad Mood  

She's in a bad mood
But I won't fall for it
I believe all her lies
But I can't fall for it

She's in a bad mood
But i won't fall for it
I believe all her lies
But i can't fall for it





2. Protect Me You top

Protect me from ravagement
I am ten years old
I don't know what I do
Protect me myself
I am fourteen
There's nothing to do
Protect me yourself
I am sixteen
Protect me from starving
I am eighteen
Protect me you
I don't know what you do
Protect me demons
That come at night
I don't know what they say
Their whispering
Sends the night air away
And makes me forget
I hope they come
Again and again

Here they come
Again and again
I hope they come again
Again
Again

Be your dog

6. The World Looks Red top

Push it away
The world looks red
People with fisheyes
The ground sucks
Walk on my fingertips
Displacing the fog
The weight of my body
Is too much to bear
The memory drained
The life from the doll
An ocean of insects
Moved like a sheet
The immovable fact
Buried my mind
In a horsehair coat
In a pile
On the floor

Push it away
The world looks red
People with fish eyes
The ground sucks
Walk on my fingertips
Displacing the fog
The weight of my body
Is too much to bear
The memory drained
The life from the doll
The ocean of insects
Moved like a sheet
The immovable fact
Buried my mind
In a horsehair coat
In a pile
On the floor





7. Confusion Is Next top

I maintain that
Chaos is the future
And beyond it is freedom
Confusion is next and next after that is the truth
You gotta cultivate what you need to need
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth

Stick your fingers
In your mouth
Squeeze your tongue
And wrench it out
From its ugly fucking cancer
Its ugly fucking cancer
Root
You gotta cultivate what you need to need
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth

Chaos is the future
And beyond it is freedom
Confusion is next and next after that is the truth
You gotta cultivate what you need to need
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth

Stick your fingers
In your mouth
Squeeze your tongue
And wrench it out
From its ugly fucking cancer
Its ugly fucking cancer
Root
You gotta cultivate what you need to need
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth
Sonic tooth

Tell nothing but the truth





8. Making The Nature Scene top

Going back to these origins
The city is a natural scape
Order in details
Confusion uproar in the whole
In nature reality is selection
The tool of critical intervention
Fragmentation is the rule
Unity is not taught in school
You are in unnatural growth
On a funny sunny street
The city has forgotten you
Symbols of its past
The meaning of its state
Its order of decay
Stand now in a column
And make the nature scene

Standing all in columns
Making the nature scene
Making the nature scene
Waiting to make them pay
There is no resistance to
The signs along the way
Standing all in columns
Waiting to make them pay
Making the nature scene
Waiting for the day
There is no resistance to
There is no resistance to
Salvation means
To count on you
It just means
To count on you
Make that nature scene

Making the nature scene
Making the nature scene
Making the nature scene
