1: Collision


Collision, My mission,
When the dawn breaks
With a handshake
Relaxed and feelin' great

Screeching' head on, head on, head on
I'm needing a head on, head on, head on
Screeching', head on, head on, head on
I'm needing a head on, head on, head on

All the day's plans
All the shaken' hands
Beepers and suntans

Screeching', head on, head on, head on
I'm needing a head on, head on, head on
Screeching', head on, head on, head on
I'm needing a head on, head on, head on

Collision, My mission

Head on, head on, head on, head on

(sample of people talking)

When the dawn breaks
With a handshake
Relaxed and feelin' great

Collision, My Mission
Head on, head on, head on,
Head on, head on, head on,

Head on,
Head on,
Head on

2: Stripsearch

It's over today
The heat is gone
Time is gone
F for fake
I feel no wrong
Hide no wrong
I love this place
The lights
Under this face
So dry

Only way to change
Give yourself away
Don't be ashamed
Next in line
Close one eye
Just walk by

In these days
I'm breathing stone
Crying alone
I'll win this race
I'll leave alone
arrive alone.

Love this place
The lights
Under this face
So dry

Stripped to the bone
I did no wrong
Truth is my name
Give yourself away

F for fake
F for fake
F for fake
F for fake
Give yourself away
Give yourself away
Give yourself away

3: Ashes To Ashes

I want them to know it's me
It's on my head
I'll point the finger at me
It's on my head

Give it all to you, then I'll be closer

Smilin' with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you

I will let you shout no more
It's on my head
I'll pick you up from the floor
It's on my head
I'll let you even the score
It's on my head

Give it all to you, then I'll be closer

Smilin' with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain
I'll see you

Give the same to me then I'll be closer closer
Give the same to me then I'll be closer closer

Smiling with the mouth of the ocean
And I'll wave to you with the arms of the mountain

Give the same to me then I'll be closer closer
Give the same to me then I'll be closer

4: Naked In Front Of The Computer

My box is full
And my mouth is full
And my life is full

And now my memory's full
In how many ways and words
Can you say nothing
Millions of ways and words
To say nothing

What'd I say,
I'm empty

I bought the thing
I taught the thing
And I fought the thing

They said it's normal,
but they're keeping me dumb and hot
You're missing something
Keeping me dumb and hot
You must be missing something
Keeping me dumb and hot

What'd I say
I'm empty
What I say
I'm empty

I'm sending it back to you
I'm sending it back to you
I'm sending it back to you
I'm sending it back to you
I'm sending it back to you

5: Helpless

Day is warm, I hear
The wind and the trees
I know I'm there, but I'll never be...
The wind is soft tonight
The tide is low
And I know the way
I never felt better, now

Sometimes life, it moves too slow
Slows to a crawl,
And then the poetry is lost
And without speed,
Hope becomes certainty
And for once, I'm certain
I never felt better, now

A garden is it's own perfect world
Where everything has a place
Mmm, every leaf, every stone
Every speck of dirt
But where's my place?
I never felt better, now

I even tried
To get arrested today,
But everyone looked the other way
I count the hours
And I count the days
But for once, I'm certain
I never felt better, now

Don't want your help
Don't need your help
Don't want your help
Don't need your help

Helpless x5
[You found a way to make me say, "Help me please someone"] x2

The water's clean
I see that it's full of dimes
For every wish, I wonder why
Why all I want
Is something beautiful
A place to rest
I never felt better now

(whistling)

Don't want your help
Don't need your help
Don't want your help
Don't need your help

You found a way to make me say, "Help me please someone" x5
[Helpless] (repeated)
Found a way, found a way,
found a way to make me say, "Help me pleas someone"
[HELP!!!] x12

6: Mouth To Mouth

Ahhhhey!
Ahhhhey!
You tied the knot,
a legend is what you bought
I give you cold water,
And you swear it was wine
You bought time
If you can fool yourself,
Then why not them?
Just keep passing it,
mouth to mouth to mouth
Ahhhhey!
Ahhhhey!
You tied the knot,
a legend is what you bought
I give you cold water,
And you swear it was wine
You bought time
If you can fool yourself,
Then why not them?
Just keep passing it,
mouth to mouth to mouth
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life
Bring it out, bring it out
Ahhhhey!
You tied the knot,
peeled your skin off,
leave a bungle of nerves
I give you a wet noodle,
you swear that it was my tongue
A sharp one
Instead of that same old
mouth to mouth to mouth to mouth
I can dress up the dead man, I can't bring him back to life
Bring it out, bring it out
Ahhhhey!
Ahhhhey!
Mouth to mouth
Mouth to mouth
Mouth to mouth
Ahhhhey!
Mouth to mouth
Mouth to mouth
Mouth to mouth to mouth to mouth
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life
I can dress up the dead man, but I can't bring him back to life ...

This is getting old
and so are you.
Everything you know
and never knew.
Will run through your fingers
just like sand.

Enjoy it while you can.

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones.
Take a deep breath and swallow
your sorrow
tomorrow.

So raise it up and lets propose a toast.
To the thing that hurts you most.

It's your last cup of sorrow.
What can you say?
Finish it today.
It's your last cup of sorrow.
So think of me
and get on your way.

It won't begin
until you make it end.
Until you know the how the where and the when.
With a new face you might surprise yourself.

Like a snake between two stones
it itches in your bones.
take a deep breath and swallow
your sorrow
tomorrow.

So raise it up and lets propose a toast.
To the thing that hurts you most.

It's your last cup of sorrow.
what can you say?
Finish it today.
It's your last cup of sorrow.
So think of me
and get on your way!

You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself
You might surprise yourself

8: She Loves Me Not

I'm here, alone,
on the the telephone line
I'm right where you want me to be
And I'll wait alone and never ask why
I'll be where you want me to be

And I know
And I know
And I know
And I know

I've been here before, and I know your kind
You're right where I want you to be
Now I'll say what I think,
I'll never be what you want me to be

Just to be who I am
What you want me to be
You'll be on your knees

Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me it's not true

And now I'm here,
alone on the telephone line
I'm right where you want me to be

And I know
And I know
And I know
And I know

I'll wait,alone,
And never I ask
I'll be where you want me to be
I'll say what I think,
I'll never be what you want me to be

Just to be who I am
What you want me to be
You'll be on your knees

Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me, tell me - Tell me it's not true
Tell me it's not true

Why don't you tell me, tell me
Tell me, tell me
Tell me, tell me
Tell me it's not true

9: Home Sick Home

Come home
It's been so long
We're missing you at home
So hang up that phone
Cause I'm coming back home
Back home

Come home
It's been so long
I can hide no more
So hang up that phone
Cause I'm coming back home
Back home

Drive me home
Drive me home
Drive me home
Drive me, keep on driving me
Keep on driving me, keep on driving me
Keep on driving me, keep on driving me
Driving me, driving me home

Come home
It's been so long
We're missing you at home
So hang up that phone
Cause I'm coming back home (I'm coming home)
Back home (I'm coming home)
I'm coming back home (I'm coming home)
I'm back home

10: Got That Feeling

Got that feeling
Luck is a little of it
I got that feeling
I cant stop winning

A to Z
Look what you're missing
As we speak
Your number's rising
Take a peak
There's just enough to go around
Get a piece
Your own little piece of hell

Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold

Got that feeling
Loving every minute of it
Got that feeling
I can't stop winning
Stop winning

Have a drink
A pot of coffee
Cannot think
To many friends here
Just an inch between striking out and striking rich
If that's the risk, why not take it, take it, take it

Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold
Get it, get it, get it, get it, get it, get your gold

Got that feeling
Loving every minute of it
Got that feeling
I can't stop winning
And start living
Start winning
Start living

You can't borrow, tomorrow

11: Paths Of Glory

You squirt out red and turn so yellow
And then you made me kill my own
I'm not afraid (coming, coming,...)
But I'm afraid (coming, coming,...)

(chorus)
Blood in your eyes again
Bravery, the face of man
Blood on your mind again
Chivalry, the face of man
Blood in your lies again
Enemy, the face of man
Blood in your eyes again
Again, again, again

Is this the only path of glory?
If so, then I won't go along
Follow the trail (running, running,...)
Follow the trail (running, running,...)

(repeat chorus)

Again (x 21)

I'm not afraid
But I'm afraid
I'm not afraid
But I'm afraid

12: Pristina

I'm watching you
I'm watching

You shall weep no more
It's your last breath of air
These walls won't week them out
They'll keep you in
But who's going to protect you?

Who's going to protect you?

Who?

In every dark land
In every flower bed
In every marriage bed

I'll be with you

I'm watching you
