5 Years
(lyrics by David Bowie)

Pushing thru the market square, so many mothers sighing
News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
News guy wept and told us, he said earth was really dying
Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying
I heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
There were boys, toys electric irons and t.v.’s
My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
I never thought I’d need so many people

A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children
If the black hadn’t a-pulled her off, I think she would have killed them
A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a cadillac
A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer threw up at the sight of that

Well, I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don’t think
You knew you were in this song
And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I kiss you, you’re beautiful

We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got
We’ve got five years, what a surprise
Five years, stuck on my eyes
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got
We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
Five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got
We’ve got five years, what a surprise
We’ve got five years, stuck on my eyes
We’ve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
Five years, that’s all we’ve got
Five years
Five years
Five years
Five years

20-th Century Boy

Friends say it's fine
Friends say it's good
Everybody says it's just like Robin Hood

And it's plain to see you were meant for me
Yeah I'm your toy your twentieth century boy

Friends say it's fine

Twentieth century boy
I wanna be your toy
Twentieth century boy

Twentieth century boy
I wanna be your toy

Been Smoking Too Long
(Lyrics by Robin Frederick)

"Yeah, I really, um, I really, I really wanted to kind of like, to capture some kind of like moment, but maybe it's better if I'm sober..."

Wake up in the morning
I look at my clock
It's way past noontime
I'm late for work
Tell me what have I done wrong?
Nothing can go right with me
It must be I've been smoking
Too long


Go to fix me some breakfast
I ain't got no food
Take me a shower
The water don't feel no good
Tell me what have I done wrong?
And nothing can go right with me
Must be I've been smoking
Too long


I got opium in my chimney
No other life to choose
Nightmares made of hash dreams
The devil in my shoes
What have I done wrong?
Yeah nothing can go right with me
It must be I've been smoking
Too long


When I'm smoking, smoking
Put my worries on a shelf
Try not to think about nothing
Don't wanna see myself
What have I done wrong?
And nothing can go right with me
It must be I've been smoking
Too long


In this blues I'm singing
There's a lesson to be learned
You go round smoking
You're gonna get burned
Fuck me what have I done wrong?
Nothing can go right with me
Must be I've been smoking
Too long
Too long


Bigmouth Strikes Again
(lyrics by Morrissey & Johnny Marr)

Sweetness
sweetness I was only joking when I said
I'd like to smash every tooth in your head.
Oh sweetness
sweetness I was only joking when I said
by rights you should be bludgeoned in your bed.

And now I know how joan of arc felt
now I know how joan of arc felt
as the flames rose to her roman nose
and her discman started to melt

Bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth la da da da, bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race
Oh
bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth la da da da
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race

And now I know how joan of arc felt
now I know how joan of arc felt
as the flames rose to her roman nose
and her megadrive started to melt

Bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth la da da da
bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race
Oh
bigmouth la da dum da da
bigmouth la da da da bigmouth strikes again
and I've got no right to take my place
in the human race.


Boys Don't Cry
(The Cure cover)

I would say I'm sorry
If I thought that it would change your mind
But I know that this time
I've said too much
Been too unkind
So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry

I would break down at your knees
And beg forgiveness
Plead with you
But I know that
It's too late
And now there's nothing I can do

So I try to laugh about it
Cover it all up with lies
I try to
Laugh about it
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry

I would tell you
That I loved you
If I thought that you would stay
But I know that it's too late
And you've already
Gone away

Misjudged your limits
Pushed you too far
Took you for granted
I thought that you needed me more

Now I would do most anything
To get you back by my side
But I just
Keep on laughing
Hiding the tears in my eyes
'Cause boys don't cry
Boys don't cry
Boys don't cry


Carbon Kid
(lyrics by Alpinestars)

Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram

Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we're leaving the ground
Image image we'll never be found
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
With a sinister diagram
Sinister diagram

And when this half is over and we claim our second skin
We can can compliment each other on the state that we are in
And when we leave this place forever and we're floating round in space
Take the easy way to heaven with a smile upon your face
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
Image image you do what you want

Image image you do what you want
Image image you do what you want
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram
Sinister diagram
You're a carbon kid with a sinister diagram


Dark Globe
(Pink Floyd cover, lyrics by S.Barrett)

Oh where are you now
pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
When I was alone
you promised the stone from your heart.
My head kissed the ground
I was half the way down
treading the sand
please.

Please lift a hand
I'm only a person
whose armbands beat
on his hands, hang tall
Won't you miss me?
wouldn't you miss me at all?
Oh
Oh
Oh

The poppy bird's way
swing twigs coffee brands around
brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
My head kissed the ground.
I was half the way down
treading the sand
please
please

Please lift a hand
I'm only a person
with eskimo chain
I tattooed my brain all the way
Won't you miss me?
wouldn't you miss me at all?
Oh
Oh
Oh

Daddy Cool
(Boney M. cover)
She's crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool

She's crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool
I'm crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool

Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool

She's crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool
I'm crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool

Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool

(spoken) She's crazy about her daddy
Oh she believes in him
She loves her daddy

She's crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool
I'm crazy like a fool
What about it Daddy Cool

Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool
Daddy, Daddy Cool

Hardly Wait
(lyrics by P.J. Harvey)
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
I can hardly wait
It’s been so long I’ve lost my taste
Say angel come, say lick my face
Let fall your dress
I’ll play the part
I’ll open this mouth wide, eat your heart

I can hardly wait...
Lips cracked dry
Tongue blue burst
Say angel come, said lick my thirst
It’s been so long I’ve lost my taste
Here romeo, make my world as great

In my glass coffin I’m waiting
In my glass coffin I’m waiting
In my glass coffin I’m waiting...

Holocaust
(lyrics by Alex Chilton)

Your eyes are almost dead
can't get out of bed
And you can't sleep

You're sitting down to dress
and you're a mess
You look in the mirror

You look in your eyes
Then you realize

Everybody goes
leaving those
who fall behind

Everybody goes
as far as they can
They don't just care

They stood on the stairs
Laughing at your airs

Your mother's dead
She said
"Don't be afraid"

Your mother's dead
You're on your own
She's in her bed

Everybody goes
Leaving those
Who fall behind

Everybody goes
As far as they can
They don't just care

You're a wasted face
you're a sad-eyed lie
You're a holocaust



Fuck U

(Archive cover)
There's a look on your face I would like to knock out
See the sin in your grin and the shape of your mouth
All I want is to see you in terrible pain
Though we won’t ever meet I remember your name

Can't believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to God I can't think of a kind thing to say
But I don't think I can so fuck you anyway

You`re a scum, you`re a scum and I hope that you know
That the cracks in your smile are beginning to show
Now the world needs to see that it's time you should go
There's no light in your eyes and your brain is too slow

Can't believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to God I can't think of a kind thing to say
But I don't think I can so fuck you anyway

Bet you sleep like a child with your thumb in your mouth
I could creep up beside put a gun in your mouth
makes me sick when I hear all the shit that you say
So much crap coming out it must take you all day

There's a space kept in hell with your name on the seat
With a spike in the chair just to make it complete
When you look at yourself do you see what I see
If you do why the fuck are you looking at me

There’s a time for us all and I think yours has been
Can you please hurry up cos I find you obscene
I can’t wait for the day that you’re never around
When that face isn’t here and you rot underground

Can’t believe you were once just like anyone else
Then you grew and became like the devil himself
Pray to god I can't think of a kind thing to say
But I don’t think I can so fuck you anyway

So fuck you anyway

I Feel You
(Depeche Mode cover)

I feel you
Your sun it shines
I feel you
Within my mind
You take me there
You take me where
The kingdom comes
You take me too
And lead my through
Babylon

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
You heart it sings
I feel you
The joy it brings
Where heaven waits
Those golden gates
And back again
You take me to
And lead me through
Oblivion

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
And I am whole
I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes

I feel you
Each move you make
I feel you
Each breath you take
Where angels sing
And spread their wings
My love's on hight
You take me home
To glory's throne
By and by

This is the morning of our love
It's just the dawning of our love

I feel you
Your precious soul
And I am whole
I feel you
Your rising sun
My kingdom comes.


Je t'aime moi non plus
(lyrics by Serge Gainsbourg)

Je t'aime
Je t'aime
Oh, oui, je t'aime
Moi non plus
Oh, mon amour
Comme la vague irresolue

Je t'aime
Je t'aime
Oh, oui, je t'aime
Moi non plus
Oh, mon amour
Tu es la vague, moi l'ile nue
Tu vas, tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes reins
Et je te rejoins

Je t'aime
Je t'aime
Oh, oui, je t'aime
Moi non plus
Oh, mon amour
Comme la vague irresolue
Je vais, je vais et je viens
Entre tes riens
Je vais et je viens
Entre tes riens
Et je me retiens

(Oh, I love you) Moi non plus
(Oh, I love you) Moi non plus

Tu vas, tu vas et tu viens
Entre mes riens
Je vais et je viens
Je me retiens
Non! Maintenant viens...


Jackie
(lyrics by Sinead O' Connor)

Jackie left on a cold, dark night
Telling me he'd be home
Sailed the seas for a hundred years
He left me all alone
Now I've been dead for twenty years
I've been washing the sand with my ghostly tears
Searching the shores for my Jackie, oh

I remember the day the young man came
Said, your Jackie's gone, he got lost in the rain
And I ran to the beach And laid me down

You're all wrong, I said
And they stared at the sand
That man knows that sea like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time
Laughing at you

And I've been waiting all this time
For my man to come, take his hand in mine
And lead me away to unseen shores

I've been washing the sand with my salty tears
Searching the shore these long years
And I'll walk the sea forever more

'TillI find my Jackie, oh
'Til I find my Jackie, oh
'Till find my Jackie, oh
Jackie, oh… Jackie, oh


Johnny & Mary
(lyrics by R.Palmer)

Johnny's always running around, trying to find certainty.
He needs all the world to confirm, that he aint lonely

Mary counts walls, knows he tires easily

Johnny thinks the world would be right, if it would buy, truth from him.
Mary says he changes his mind, more than a woman.

But she made her bed, even when the chance was slim.

Johnny says he's willing to learn, when he decides, he's a fool.
Johnny say's he'll live any where, when he earns time to.

Mary combs her hair, says she should be use to it.

Mary always edges her bets, she never knows, what to think.
She says that he still acts, like he's being discovered.

Scared that he'll get caught, without a second thought

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath, trying to talk, sense to her
Mary says he's lacking a real, sense of proportion
So she combs her hair, knows he tires easily

Johnny's always running around, trying to find certainty.
He needs all the world to confirm, that he aint lonely

Mary counts walls, says she should be use to it.


La Ballade de Melody Nelson
(lyrics by Serge Gainsbourg)

"Pour l'amitie… l'amitie entre homme et femme, impensable.
Parce que… il y a toujours sous-jacent le desir animal "

This is the story of Melody Nelson
Apart from me no one Ever took her in his arms
Under her thumb
Ice under sun.
(Oh my Melody my… Oh my Melody my…)
She was nothing but love poor Melody Nelson
Her life was more said than done
But her days were numbered now
Count fourteen falls fifteen call ?

A baby tiger was Melody Nelson
Forever hurrying in the sun
Just as dangerous as a child
With a gun shooting me down

Oh my Melody my Melody Nelson
Still playing hurting games for fun
As adorable as dumb
Deaf to the sound
To what's going down


Requiem for a Jerk
(lyrics by Serge Gainsbourg)

Listen to the organ that I play for you
Since you’ve got no choice, hear me through
You look as if you like it, but you seem reserved
It’s my requiem for a jerk.

I wrote it in the bath, on my breakfast tray
Cut my appetite (cut my appetite)
For the day (for the day)
I tried to raise a toast, ate the second verse
Buttered requiem (buttered requiem)
For a jerk (for a jerk)
It’s an afternoon for mourners but the tears don’t come
Got what you deserve, (got what you deserve)
The maximum (the maximum)
Well I’m getting sentimental but it’s too much work,
What’s a requiem to a jerk?

Well the devil left a message
“Go try paradise, hell’s a lot too hot, not too nice.
Try to take in God if you’ve got the nerve,
Even I don’t need stupid jerks.”

Listen to the organ that I play for you
Since you’ve got no choice, hear me through.
You look as if you like it, in your wooden shirt
It’s my requiem (it’s my requiem)
For a jerk (for a jerk)
I wrote it in the bath, on my breakfast tray
Cut my appetite (cut my appetite)
For the day (for the day)

On your white washed face, blue steal prison wall
I write “Stupid jerk!”
That’s all.
(that’s all)

Running Up That Hill

(lyrics by Kate Bush)

It doesn't hurt me. (oh oh oh)
You wanna feel how it feels ? (oh oh oh)
You wanna know, know that it doesn't hurt me ? (oh oh oh)
You wanna hear about the deal that I'm making ? (oh oh oh)

You, (If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)
You and me. (If I only could, I'd be running up that hill)

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh...

You don't wanna hurt me,
But see how deep the bullet lies.
Unaware that I'm tearing you asunder.
There is thunder in our hearts, Baby
Is there so much hate for the ones we love ?
Tell me we both matter, don't we ?
You, you and me.
You and me won't be unhappy.

If I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
Be running up that building.
If I only could, oh...

"C'mon, Baby, c'mon c'mon Darling,
Let me steal this moment from you now.
C'mon, Angel, c'mon, c'mon, Darling,
Let's exchange the experience"
Oohh

If I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

And if I only could,
Make a deal with God,
And I'd get him to swap our places,
Be running up that road,
Be running up that hill,
With no problems.

(If I only could, I'd be running up that hill.
If I only could, I'd be running up that hill.)


West End Girls
[Pet Shop Boys cover]

Sometimes you're better off dead
There's gun in your hand and it's pointing at your head
You think you're mad, too unstable
Kicking in chairs and knocking down tables
In a restaurant in a West End town
Call the police, there's a madman around
Running down underground to a dive bar
In a West End town

In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
West End girls

Too many shadows, whispering voices
Faces on posters, too many choices
If, when, why, what?
How much have you got?
Have you got it, do you get it, if so, how often?
And which do you choose, a hard or soft option?

In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
West End girls
West End girls

You've got a heart of glass or a heart of stone
Just you wait 'til I get you home
We've got no future, we've got no past
Here today, built to last
In every city, in every nation
From Lake Geneva to the Finland station

In a West End town, a dead end world
The East End boys and West End girls
A West End town, a dead end world
East End Boys, West End girls
West End girls

Where Is My Mind?

(Pixies Cover)

Ooooooh - stop.
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind (3x)
Way out in the water
See it swimmin'

I was swimmin' in the Carribean
Animals were hiding behind the rock
Except the little fish
But they told me, he swears
Tryin' to talk to me to me to me

Where is my mind (3x)

Way out in the water
See it swimmin' ?
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my mind (3x)

Ooooh
With your feet in the air and your head on the ground
Ooooh
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Ooooh
Ooooh

Wouldn't it be good?
(Nik Kershaw cover)

I got it bad,
You don't know how bad I got it.
You got it easy,
You don't know when you got it good.
It's getting harder,
Just keeping life and soul together.
I'm sick of fighting,
Even though I know I should.
The cold is biting,
Through each and every nerve and fibre.
My broken spirit is frozen to the core.
Don't wanna be here no more.

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes,
Even if it was for just one day?
Wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away?

You must be joking,
You don't know a thing about it.
You've got no problem,
I'd stay right there if it were you.
I got it harder,
You couldn't dream how hard it got it.
Stay out of my shoes,
If you know what's good for you.
The heat is stifling,
Burning me up from the inside.
The sweat is dripping from each and every pore.
Don't wanna be here no more,
Don't wanna be here no more.

Wouldn't it be good to be in your shoes,
Even if it was for just one day?
Wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves away?
Wouldn't it be good to be on your side?
The grass is always greener over there.
Wouldn't it be good if we could live without a care?
Without a care,
Without a care,
Without a care,
Without a care.
