It Doesn't Make Sense

ALL THESE THINGS

all the things i like to be
make me scared, 'cause they're not clear to me
i stayed up all night trying to figure out
what i need and what i can live without
i don't know, if i'll ever be
all the things that i wanna be
i'm twenty-four, i could have done more
but there's still so much to explore

all the things i like to be
still appear to be a mystery
staying up all night, helped me to find
the answer to what i was looking for
and i know, i'll never be
all the things that i wanna be
time's running out, passing me by
with every day part of me dies

all these things, i like to be
make me scared, 'cause they're not clear to me
i stayed up all night trying to figure out
what i need and what i can live without
i don't know, if i'll ever be
all these things that i wanna be
i'm twenty-four, i could have done more
but there's still so much to explore

NO DEADLINE

something made me come here after all
in retrospect i do admit to have certain flaws
maybe i'm just repeating what everybody else is saying,
but that doesn't make it less true
for me it's still the same, the philosophies don't change
just because you do

i'm the part of you that you try to suppress
never to surface in your consciousness
i just exist to show others how not to live

there's no deadline for me to settle down
you have to destroy to erect, to rebuild another intellect
maybe i'm just repeating what everybody else is saying,
but that doesn't make it less true
i'm a drinker but i'm a thinker
palace-brothers here's to you

i'm the part of you that you try to suppress
never to surface in your consciousness
i just exist to show others how not to live

THE WAY IT HAS TURNED OUT

mistakes, chances i never took
are creeping up to me right now
then i wish i could go back in time
and rearrange things somehow
i would be an astronaut, a president, piano player
in a rundown hotel bar
i would be an astronaut, a president, a pilot man
a poet or a football star

if things hadn't turned out the way they have to this day
i would miss the guy at the bar
that i just talked to yesterday
i think he was an astronaut, a president,
piano player in a rundown hotel bar
i think he was an astronaut, a president, a pilot man
a poet or a football star

ONE OF THOSE DAYS

well i think you know the feeling trying to get out of bed
got a bottle beside me six aspirins in my head
well it's been like this ever since last thursday night
seven days gone by and nothing went right
it's been one of those days all week long

a fraction of my personality wants to split
i walk around from room to room but nothing seems to fit
too many colors on TV ten aspirins in my head
so i go get my covers and slip into bed
it's been one of those days all week long

FRIDAY NIGHT

come on quick we still have time
to lose ourselves in our state of mind
let's get to this place where we don't stand all alone
where the music's loud and we've got something to do
some say people revolve
stuck on a carrousel-ride while trying to get off
i'm only leaving this place when i'll be there all alone
when the music's out and i've got nowhere to go
but something always happens here
where the music suits my interests
i had my share of joy and laughter
i always feel at home

come on quick we still have time
to lose ourselves in our state of mind
let's try and find out just how far we can go
with no conscience for excessive overload
some say people revolve
stuck on a carrousel-ride while trying to get off
well maybe that's me and i am just like the rest
but i don't want to admit it 'cause i just get all depressed
but something always happens here
where the music suits my interests
i had my share of joy and laughter
i always feel at home

STROMGITARRE

well we thought it would be cool
to put a sound like this one here
to create a certain atmosphere
this song isn't about anything special
i hope you're not disappointed
it's just an instrumental

SELFDESTRUCTIVE TODAY

i wanna see, i wanna see all my friends today
well i think it might be time again
to see if i can still take the abuse
laziness is what is killing me
'cause now i have the time to fill the holes
but i feel no sadness
in this grown up world i feel self-destructive today

yes today is the day for something new
to see things i never saw before
but i feel there's nothing left for me
and it's me that will self-destruct again, and again
'cause i feel no sadness
in this grown up world i feel self-destructive today
i wasted all this time
to find the palace of wisdom on the excess road
but i know i can, i know i will get there somehow
'cause i still feel self-destructive today

WHEN I GROW UP

when i was three years old
i got up early once a week and stood outside in the cold
when people would come up to me
and asked what do you wanna be
there wasn't any doubt in my mind
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

ok, it's not the most glamorous job in the world
you drive around from street to street
and pick up other people's dirt
but one time when he came to our house
he looked at me and smiled
oh man, garbage-truck driver won't you take me for a ride
when i grow up, when i grow up
i'm gonna drive a garbage-truck

i never wanted to be a doctor
i never wanted to practice law
i never wanted to work in a barber shop
the only thing i wanted growing up
was to drive a garbage-truck

SUPERFICIAL

i wanna see all my friends today
i haven't been out for a week or two
and nobody seems to be missing me
no superficial talk, i wanna listen to what they have to say
and sometimes it's so much fun i don't wanna leave
i appreciate the times that we spend
talking about how life's gonna end

it feels like weeks since i've been out
and nobody seems to be missing me
no superficial talk get some jacky and we never stop
at times it's so much fun i don't wanna leave
i appreciate the times that we spend
talking about how life's gonna end

i like being with my friends
'cause they are the only ones that seem to understand
it's hard to find people that you really want to meet
although we don't do much it's enough for me

SATURDAY MORNING

come on quick we still have time
to lose ourselves in our state of mind
let's leave this place before we stand here all alone
and the music's out and we've got no place else to go
some say that people revolve
let's not get stuck on a carrousl-ride while desperately trying to get off
let's leave this place before we stand here all alone
and the music's out and we've got no place we can go

'cause nothing really happens here
the people are just like anywhere else
they seem to know it all, they seem so far away
i just can't seem to concentrate

come on quick we still have time
to lose ourselves in our state of mind
let's get out of this place before we stand here all alone
and the music's out and we've got no place else to go

'cause nothing really happens here
the people are just like anywhere else
they seem to know it all, they seem so far away
i just can't concentrate
