Track Name: King Kong
There was this guy
Who looked
Into my eyes
Then took
Out his knife
I shook
"I'll take your life
you rook"


I looked at him and said
Boy you will regret
You may have lost your bet
But you ain't seen nothing yet!

Put that knife away, kid! And make some miles quick!


Get along, King Kong!
You better run away,
You better shut your mouth,
You better hide your tongue!


He wanted me
To run
I let him see
My gun
You better flee
My son
I'll burst your knee
You dumb-
ASS!

I told you once, man! And I'll tell you another time:
Put that thing away and run!


Get along, King Kong!
You better run away,
You better shut your mouth,
You better hide your tongue!

Let's sit together side by side
And talk a little for a while
You showed your knife and now it's time
For me - I think - to show you mine!


Get along, King Kong!
You better run away,
You better shut your mouth,
You better hide your tongue!

GET ALONG!
GET ALONG!
Track Name: Sounds Of Harmonicas
Do you break yourself down,
For there's a sick thought around?
Homed in the folds of your brain
Making you insane!

Do not let them eat you up!
Mortal they are, mortal they'll stay!
They're caught all day
Their bodies free, their minds are trapped!

Stick to the plan, pray for the man!
Note down the alpha, erase all the omegas
And send them all far away to sounds of harmonicas!

Cut their tongues out, turn them still,
Toss your wrong doubts down the hill
To break their backs on stones of will!
Track Name: Love Me
Eradicate me!
I know that you hate me...
When you face me,
Do not embrace me!

Your snake eyes watch me.
Your serpent hands they touch me.
I'm all yours, a slave...
At your command, I bury my grave!

Love me, love me harder!

Your love is like a string around my neck
My hands are tied and you pull on the strings
With your knee in my back!

Hate me, hate me more!

I'm dedicated
To be devastated.
For death I waited.
More love, more hatred.

Now what's left over,
When the caskets lower?
Can you show me
The world below me!


Your love is like a string around my neck
My hands are tied and you pull the strings
With your knee in my back!


Push your teeth into my skin!
Now you control me!
Swallow me whole!
Track Name: Same Nothing
I'm so alone,
The sky is my home.
The only one that I've ever known.
I can't die, but I cry every time,

When they call my name
But you're all the same,
The same to me...
The same nothing to me!

I don't care,
Although that I'm there.
What you call "there" could be anywhere,
I only wish I wouldn't hear

When they call my name
But you're all the same,
The same to me...
The same nothing to me!

Oh how I wish I was like you,
Stuck on earth, mortal and true.
Besides the fact, that you're nothing at all,
You megalomaniacs won't stop to call.

When they call my name
But you're all the same,
The same to me...
The same nothing to me!
The same nothing to me!
The same nothing to me!
Track Name: In My Heart
I saw you stare,
Covered in blood you lay there
"My son, I don't fear! - I'm fine!"

Oh father I'll drag you out!
Oh father I'll bring you home!
Oh father pleeeaaaseee!
"We had our time, son! I'm proud of you!"

"Son, this is a war
War is a whore
And you pay the price!

Now here're my words,
I know that it hurts
But I won't tell you lies!"

"You are
And you were
And you stay
In my heart forever!"

Keep on shooting we shoot 'em down!
Keep on dancing to bombing sounds!
Oh what a joyful town!
"It's just war!"

Am I dreaming or leaving myself?
Oh father I'm so alone!
Oh father I'm coming home!
"Dad, I just wanted to tell you this"

"Dad, I know you are dead
I was holding your head
and listening to you!"

Now listen to me,
I hope you can see,
that this is the truth!"

"You are
And you were
And you stay
In my heart forever!"
