Track Name: Fools Rush In
Fools rush in
Where angels fear to tread
And so I come to you my love
My heart above my head

Though I see
The danger there
If there's a chance for me
Then I don't care

Fools rush in
Where wise men never go
But wise men never fall in love
So how are they to know

When we met
I felt my life begin
So open up your heart and let
This fool rush in
Track Name: In Love With Complication
In the eyes of complication
Lies my only point of orientation
Cause i'm in love
Cause i'm in love

Behind the eyes of complication
Lies the only way to my salvation
Cause i'm in love with complication
Cause i'm in love with complication
Track Name: Relatieplanet
Op de foto was je leuk
Maar nu ik je in het echt zie
Val je tegen

Je staat te wachten in je rooie jas
Maar dat je al grijs was
Dat had je verzwegen

Ik was te lang op mezelf
Tot dat ik met jou wilde spelen

Voor de bloemen die ik jou bracht
Was je allergisch
Hoe kon ik het weten

Het cadeau wat je mij had gebracht
Had je zelf in een toeval opgegeten

Ik was te lang op mezelf
Tot dat ik met jou wilde spelen
Maar na vanavond niet meer
Track Name: The Blues Ain't My Thing
The blues ain't my thing
The blues ain't my thing

Cause I'm just a whiteboy
And i ain't got no swing
Cause I'm just a whiteboy
And i ain't got no swing

Those black momma's
Don't mean a thing
Those black momma's
Don't mean a thing

Cause I'm just a whiteboy
And i ain't got no swing
Cause I'm just a whiteboy
And i ain't got no swing

Contact avec les yeux physiques

J'ai vu l'amour sont
Mais je n'osais pas
Ne la ferai plus

Contact avec les yeux physiques

Se qui peu fair pour la revoir
Elle est toujour dans mon esprit
Je suis perdu à jamais
Track Name: Lice
Lice
Track Name: Priscilla
Ze houdt van disco
En van jongens die op reis gaan
Slecht belichte foto's
En slapen met het licht aan

Ze heeft een enig hondje
En een hele mooie jurk aan
Een super dure ketting
En een nog mooiere voornaam

Ze heet Priscilla
En is net 21
Kijk haar toch feesten
En wat een goeie billen

Ze heeft heel veel vriendinnen
Daarmee gaat ze altijd dansen
En 's avonds op de vespa
Naar de snackbar om te schransen

Ze heet Priscilla
En is net 21
Kijk haar toch feesten
En wat een goeie billen

Priscilla wat doe je met mij
Ik kijk naar je maar je kijkt nooit terug

Ze heet Priscilla
En is net 21
Kijk haar toch feesten
En wat een goeie billen
Track Name: Clinical Blues
I used to be a cheery and joyfull guy
Then certain things occurred
And now I want to die
I tried to get myself together
But it didn't work out on my own
And now I got myself the clinical blues

My momma left my daddy
When I was just around 17
So he killed her with a hammer
In december 99
He just gave me all his money
And went over the borderline
So i had to go and make it on my own

The first month i was cruizin'
And looking for places to stay
But then i started boozin'
And all my money got away
So i got my act together
And found a job with reasonable pay
And I thought it was gonna be a happy ending

But then I started doing bad things
And I do not know why
I started abusing people
And I started getting high
So they put me in this clinic
And now all I can do is cry
So now I'm stuck with that damn clinical blues

I've been here for 2 years now
Under the supervision of the man
But getting well in my position is something no man can
I will never find a wive
and I'm gonna stay here all my live
with only the company of my clinical blues

I used to be a cheery and joyfull guy
Then certain things occurred
And now I want to die
I tried to get myself together
But it didn't work out on my own
And now I got myself the clinical blues
Track Name: Poalo Fernandes
I've been watching
And it's all ending
Its been a pretty long way down

The leaves are discoloured
The light is fading
Autumn is coming
But you're not around

And you....
