Love Bone 02:23
My love bone is hurting It´s out of use for a time But my love, it still is burning It really is a crime So I went down to the butcher To slaughter this heart of mine He said: Boy, are you damaged? You will use it in time No wonder what the rain brings Time will cure your problems That´s alright That´s alright My love bone is hurting For all my big black deeds My love bone is hurting That´s all it really needs My love bone is hurting I´m looking for some food My love bone is hurting Man, I´m in the mood So go on take a ride With your fairly beloved sister That´s alright That´s alright My love bone is hurting It´s out of use for a time But my love, it still is burning It really is a crime So I went down to the butcher To slaughter this heart of mine He said: Boy, are you damaged? You will use it in time No wonder what the rain brings Time will cure your problems That´s alright That´s alright No wonder what the rain brings Time will cure your problems That´s alright That´s alright

Borderliner 05:03

Don´t matter if it´s wrong Don´t matter if it´s right I´m staring at my enemy He´s looking for a fight I got no time for warfare I just want my right I cannot heal you, brother So I wish you a good night Dear boy, you should take a pill Don´t risk a nervous breakdown Prozac, Tavor, Valium Will guarantee your self control They built a concentration camp Just for you and me It´s hotter than Guantanamo And colder than the sea They penetrate our feelings And more than this, I fear You hear it every evening Medicine is here Dear boy, you should take a pill Don´t risk a nervous breakdown Prozac, Tavor, Valium Will guarantee your self control Don´t matter if it´s right Don´t matter if it´s wrong I´m staring at my enemy He´s looking for a fight I got no time for warfare I just want my right I cannot heal you brother So I wish you a good night Dear boy, you should take a pill Don´t risk a nervous breakdown Prozac, Tavor, Valium Will guarantee your self control

Marc is a manager He´s working all day long He´s working hard in business He´s working on his own And when he´s got a break As short as it can be He´s runniong to the toilet To get a junk for free The line is on the mirror The stuff is in the nose I´d like to be... Casey is the son Of a multi-millionaire Who blew him every dollar In his decorated ass He came to university And studied fine arts And then he got to know A bunch of decent friends They layed the line before him He´d rather tried a smoke But he tried to be... Peter was a loner Always bad at school Peter tried a reefer He thought: This is cool! He knew every dealer Who sold for a good price He didn´t know that they weren´t healers When they said: Come try a line So he snorted it from the mirror He thought that he was king And always free...
