Track Name: My Lobotomy
Sanitize my brain!

When you're out on the town
There are some things that you should never say aloud
So you swallow it down with a nice glass of scotch
Yeah the next one on the rocks

When you're out on the night
There are some things that are considered impolite
So keep your exits in sight coz you're bound to go wrong
Oh it won't be very long coz

It's a soul-sucking surly charade
I wanna stick a knife right in my brain
I get lifted and twisted instead
I might be able to take it
Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa

Sanitize my brain!

When you're out on the town
There are some things that you should always keep around
Like Apocalypse Now and your favorite song
It'll keep you safe from harm coz

I have figured it out
The intellectuals have been run out of town
As the candle burns down
How can mankind move on
When the scientists have gone

It's a soul-sucking stupid charade
I wanna stick a knife right in my brain
I get lifted and twisted instead
I might be able to make it

Sanitize my brain!

I'm not so sure of what will become
I know I'm not some fortunate son
And I can't change the rules of the game

So come on and pass that bottle oh brother
The mainstream's getting too dumb
And I can't change the way that I play
It's too late
For my brain
Today
Oh oh oh oh

When you're out on the town
There are some things that you should always keep around
Like Apocalypse Now and your favorite song
It'll keep you safe from harm coz

I have figured it out
The intellectuals have been run out of town
As the candle burns down
How can mankind move on
When the poets all have flown

It's a soul-sucking sordid charade
I wanna stick a knife right in my brain
I get lifted and twisted instead
I might be able to fake it

some are made out of sugar
some are made of snakes and snails
oh but some ain't like the others
some are rare

Lorelei
Lorelei
oh you're my kind of girl
you're a hell of a guy
Lorelei

you are strong as thunder
coz you were forged in flames of love
so much love it could light
a hundred million suns

Lorelei
Lorelei
oh you're my kind of girl
you're a hell of a guy
Lorelei

oh your daddy's a sinner
and your momma's a saint
but who is the captain of your fate?
oh we're born to be sinners
and to sing "Amazing Grace"
oh it's true that you are the captain of your fate

Lorelei
Lorelei
oh you're my kind of girl
you're a hell of a guy

Track Name: Wasteland
Cover it up again
Just a part of the wasteland
Between lovers and friends

Climb on the carousel
We are one with the darkness
That we keep to ourselves

Stand your ground
Show no sign of weakness
Just bury those bones below the ground
Bury those bones below

Bodies and broken shells
They're a part of the wasteland
Between heaven and hell

Bibles and wishing wells
There are things I could offer
That I ain't gonna sell

So drag me down
Exploit my weakness
Then bury those bones below the ground
Bury those bones below

Then cover it up
I become a part of that wasteland oh
Cover it up
I become, I become, oh
Cover it up
I become a part of that wasteland oh
Cover it up
I become, I become

There's three for hope
And two for dreams
And one for this reality
One for this reality

There's three for you
And two for me
And one for this reality
One for this reality

Poppies and pestilence
They're a part of the wasteland
Between liars and men

Climb on the carousel
There are things I can promise
But can never foretell

So strip me down
Enjoy my weakness
Then bury those bones below the ground
Bury those bones below

Then cover it up
I become a part of that wasteland oh
Cover it up
I become, I become, oh
Cover it up
I become a part of it
Please don't come back
Cover it up
I become, I become

Stand your ground
Show no sign of weakness
Just bury those bones below the ground
Bury those bones below
Bo-bo-bo-bo
The ground
Track Name: The Empath
Oh it thrills me
To see you smile
Yeah it fills me
With love and light
Oh I know what it is
To feel happy as you do
My dear

Oh it kills me
To hear you cry
Yeah it guts me
So deep inside
Oh I know what it is
To feel deeply as you do
My dear

You'll never be fighting alone in this war
And if I have to I will fall on my sword for you
Go up to heaven and claim my reward
It's right here with you dear
Just hold on tight

You'll never be fighting alone in this war
And if I have to I will fall on my sword for you
Go up to heaven and claim my reward
It's right here with you dear
Just hold on tight

Oh...

You'll never be fighting alone in this war
And if I have to I will fall on my sword for you
Go up to heaven and claim my reward
It's right here with you dear
Just hold on tight
Track Name: Intermezzo
fat cat in the lap of luxury
what shall you do today?
sell your soul for a piece of gold
or a nice 401(k)?
but time has gone away
time has gone away
gone away
aha!
the hourglass is now half past
what shall you do today?

running late to the masquerade
who shall you be today?
the snitch or the witch
or the bum in the ditch
or the one who always pays?
who are you today?
who are you today?
haha!
you don’t know
and so you roam
like a zombie on parade
yeah!

take time (take time)
make time (make time)
join me down at the camp
where the gypsies dance
and play and drink and sing
ja!

running late to the churchyard gate
will you repent today?
or live in sin
let the fun begin
and go your merry way?
go your merry way
go your merry way
hahaha!
come down to the camp
where the gypsies dance
and play and drink and sing
JA!
