[VERSE]
Your smile blurs my bad memories
When we hug and chill in bed
Like a green day in the seventies

If the sun threatened to hide his face
I would always choose your eyes
No matter the side effects

[PRE-CHORUS]
Only you can fill the void
Feeling high and paralyzed
Paranoid in paradise

[CHORUS]
I need you more and more
Like a fanatic
Like a fxxxin' fanatic
I want you more and more
Like a love addict
Like a damn love addict

I need you more and more
Like a fanatic
Like a fxxxin' fanatic
I want you more and more
Like a love addict
Like a damn love addict

[VERSE]
Sprinkle my soul with fairy dust
I wanna fly far away
And taste that psychedelic lust

Baby, give me another dose
I've got you under my skin
Between the spirit and the bones

[PRE-CHORUS]
Only you can fill the void
Feeling high and paralyzed
Paranoid in paradise

[CHORUS]
I need you more and more
Like a fanatic
Like a fxxxin' fanatic
I want you more and more
Like a love addict
Like a damn love addict

I need you more and more
Like a fanatic
Like a fxxxin' fanatic
I want you more and more
Like a love addict
Like a damn love addict

[BRIDGE]
Got your name
Your beautiful name
Tatted on my body
I need you so bad
I might OD

[PRE-CHORUS]
But only you can fill the void
Feeling high and paralyzed
Paranoid in paradise

[CHORUS]
I need you more and more
Like a fanatic
Like a fxxxin' fanatic
I want you more and more
Like a love addict
Like a damn love addict

I need you more and more
Like a fanatic

I want you more and more

Love Addict

[VERSE 1]
A smell of beer and cigarettes
Daddy's home, and he's angry
Mom hasn't set the table yet
Cause she worked all day in the laundry
He drags her to the kitchen
She's bleeding from the head
I run under the bed
Hiding from my dad's addiction

[PRE-CHORUS]
I freeze up
I freeze up
When comes the stormy weather
But I won't stay little forever

[CHORUS]
I'm breaking the circle
I will heal your soul
With jewels and gold
I'm breaking the circle
I will cover your road
With a thousand roses
I'm breaking the circle
I'm breaking that curse

[VERSE 2]
Mom died from overwork
I didn't grow up fast enough
I make new friends and go berserk
Bleeding inside but acting tough
Yet another bar fight
I spill beer on your ruffle dress
Sorry, ma'am, I'm such a mess
But I believe in love at first sight

[PRE-CHORUS]
You can see the pain
Of the little boy I used to be
Cause you feel the same
You feel the same

[CHORUS]
I'm breaking the circle
I will heal your soul
With jewels and gold
I'm breaking the circle
I will cover your road
With a thousand roses
I'm breaking the circle
I'm breaking that curse

[BRIDGE]
A smell of coffee and fresh violet
I just got home, and I'm hungry
But you haven't set the table yet
Another thing that bugs me
Our son wishes
He could send me to hell
And I know only too well
What's on his mind when he picks up
The broken dishes

[PRE-CHORUS]
I freeze up
I freeze up
When comes the stormy weather
But I won't stay little forever

[CHORUS]
I'm breaking the circle
I will heal your soul
With jewels and gold
I'm breaking the circle
I will cover your road
With a thousand roses
I'm breaking the circle
I'm breaking that curse

Breaking the Circle

[VERSE 1]
You reminded me of
When the psychedelic rock was on top
I found the Fountain of Youth on your lips
You used to put your hands on me
As if there was nothing more sacred
Than my naked body

[CHORUS]
The sweet love you vowed
Made me feel like I was flying
Until I hit the ground
I can't escape gravity
Just like I can't beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

[VERSE 2]
I gave you my very soul
The only asset that will never be old
But you left me anyway for a girl your age
You forget about me so easily
I'm thrown away like a pagan deity

[CHORUS]
The sweet love you vowed
Made me feel like I was flying
Until I hit the ground
I can't escape gravity
Just like I can't beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

[OUTRO]
I can't escape gravity
I failed to beat fate
In a Shakespearean tragedy

Shakespearean Tragedy

[VERSE 1]
Love or war, I'm fxxxed anyway
But I'd rather die with a needle in my head
Than with a gun in my hand
No, I won't kill my brother on my way
To the Promised Land

[HOOK]
On death row
I say, "Peace and Rock and Roll"

[VERSE 2]
Red or blue, same bed in the basement
And I'd rather die running from a manhunt
Than welcome their lies into my brain
I need art, not entertainment

[HOOK]
On death row
I say, "Peace and Rock and Roll"

[VERSE 3]
Hell or Heaven, the rent is too high
And I'd rather be placed in isolation
Than live like a slave in the afterlife
I'm ready to die
Cause I am my own salvation

[HOOK]
On death row
I say, "Peace and Rock and Roll"

[OUTRO]
Peace and Rock and Roll
Peace and Rock and Roll
On death row
I say, "Peace and Rock and Roll"

On Death Row

[VERSE 1]
Your new girlfriend doesn't change the weather
You're still a wolf in a cashmere sweater
Playing the nice guy really doesn't suit you
We should shine together like we used to
I'm the black sheep meant to be with you

[PRE-CHORUS]
Demons are only mean
Because they miss heaven
I want you back by any means
Baby, you're my bad obsession

[CHORUS]
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't upset me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't forget me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler

[VERSE 2]
I'm good at everything
But I'm highly gifted at doing evil
My love is lethal
Don't get it twisted
I run hell better than him
And emerge from the flames with a pretty tanned skin

[PRE-CHORUS]
Demons are only mean
Because they miss heaven
I want you back by any means
Baby, you're my bad obsession

[CHORUS]
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't upset me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't forget me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler

[BRIDGE]
I hurt you, you hurt me, I'm tired of counting the score
I don't wanna play this game anymore
But you started a war, and I'm too proud to end it
My white flag has turned into a blue velvet

[CHORUS]
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't upset me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler
Please, don't make me a bunny boiler
Don't forget me or I'll destroy her
Not a threat, baby, that's a spoiler

Spoiler

[VERSE 1]
My bed feels like a cramped coffin
And when she lies down next to me
My room stays dark and gloomy
Love can't save a dead man walking

[PRE-CHORUS]
Trapped inside my body
I'm buried alive
Everything gets so muddy
I'm barely alive

[CHORUS]
I'm a dead man walking
On the wane
Like the moon tonight
I'm a dead man walking
Only pain
Still binds me to life

I'm a dead man walking
A stranger
To living species
I'm a dead man walking
No angel
Ain't the man she sees
I'm just a dead man walking

[VERSE 2]
Beneath the fleeting masks
Freaks never rest
So I light a cigarette
And spend the night staring at the ceiling cracks

[PRE-CHORUS]
Trapped inside my body
I'm buried alive
Everything gets so muddy
I'm barely alive

[CHORUS]
I'm a dead man walking
On the wane
Like the moon tonight
I'm a dead man walking
Only pain
Still binds me to life

I'm a dead man walking
A stranger
To living species
I'm a dead man walking
No angel
Ain't the man she sees
I'm just a dead man walking

[BRIDGE]
Another sunrise
A timeline of empty numbers
Happiness is six feet under
Sun's glaring in my dull eyes
But dark thoughts don't melt away
So I keep them in a foggy place
And put on a happy face
Like I did yesterday

Dead Man Walking

[CHORUS]
I just wanna be a part of this world
But no one wants a broken bird
My soul left me down in the flood
People throw me in the mud
I hear so many jokes and jeers
I wish they were drowning in my tears

[VERSE]
They blow the conch shell
And banish me from the City Lights
"You're nothing but a squonk," they yell
"An ugly creature of the night"
(Creature of the night)

I find myself within a dark forest
And I hear a voice ask
"Don't you know who the Black Boar is?"
"One step further and it will be your last"
(It will be your last)

[CHORUS]
I just wanna be a part of this world
But no one wants a broken bird
My soul left me down in the flood
People throw me in the mud
I hear so many jokes and jeers
I wish they were drowning in my tears

[VERSE]
Dry your tears, my dearest child
Grab a virgin and stab that goat
I welcome you to the wild
Let my blood flow into your throat
(Flow into your throat)

I found my beauty
Among the creatures of the night
Angels better not fly close to me
Or their heads will be on a pike
(Heads on a pike)

[CHORUS]
I don't wanna be a part of the herd
"Hail Satan" will be my last words
Darkness led me down to the woods
My whole being bows at Your hooves
I no longer hear jokes or jeers
I'm the dream that drowns them deep in fear
I'm the dream that drowns them deep in fear

Squonk

[VERSE 1]
John Doe got my number
Written on the back of his hand
He's not in a rock band
But he looks like my favorite drummer
His body keeps my mind faded
But now that our night song is over
Your voice is getting closer
Maybe I'm just sad and naked

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway
With my messy hair and a sick face

[CHORUS]
I do the Walk of Shame
With brand new accessories
Hiding from the memories
Of how we used to be
Catwalk queen, that's the new me
I walk down the street in slow motion
And do the Walk of Shame
Better ashamed than broken

[VERSE 2]
All your pictures are gone
But visions of our past are like paparazzi
So I'm wastin' my time with a guy I met at a party
I feel almost sober, but the show must go on

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway
With my messy hair and a sick face

[CHORUS]
I do the Walk of Shame
With brand new accessories
Hiding from the memories
Of how we used to be
Catwalk queen, that's the new me
I walk down the street in slow motion
And do the Walk of Shame
Better ashamed than broken

[BRIDGE]
My heart is locked and barred, baby
So do it hard, baby
Bring some wild love into the bed
I want him out of my head

[PRE-CHORUS]
The morning after is my fashion weakness
I get dressed and run away
I'm on the runway
With my messy hair and a sick face

[CHORUS]
I do the Walk of Shame
With brand new accessories
Hiding from the memories
Of how we used to be
Catwalk queen, that's the new me
I walk down the street in slow motion
And do the Walk of Shame
Better ashamed than broken
