Tea 03:48
Tea Oh baby, it’s only just I realized We’re not the same But time is on our side Just lately, I found I idealized Our little flame But now it seems to die Couldn’t we discuss this over tea? There is a time and place for all to disagree Couldn’t we forget this over time? Is there a way to put aside this little crime? I’m sorry, if someone lingers on my mind If someone else Just captivates me more Please try to be strong and bear with me While I try to make up my mind Just for today I can’t say I am sure Couldn’t we discuss this over tea? There is a time and place for all to disagree Couldn’t we forget this over time? Is there a way to put aside this little crime?

Hackenslacken Aaah, goedemorgen! we zijn weer wakker hoor. En, ik heb zin! Ja, ik heb alweer zin Ontzettend veel zin In kleine stukjes chocola Of eigenlijk: cacaofantasie Maar toch noemen we het chocola, da's wel zo makkelijk Op een boterham Kleine stukjes chocola Op een boterham Oh ja Da's toch zo lekker 's ochtends vroeg na de thee Doe ik m'n ogen dicht en geniet! Van die heerlijke Goddelijke Onbeschrijflijke Stukjes Chocola 't Is ongelofelijk! Wie dit uitgevonden heeft verdient een standbeeld! Voor die inventieve Progressieve Stukjes Chocola Op m'n boterham M'n boterham met hagelslag Jaha, van Venz, of de Ruyter Maar eigenlijk heb ik liever gewoon het huismerk Van de Albert Heijn Maar ja Je kunt niet alles hebben Hoor je de engeltjes al? Die zitten erin! Jaha! Dat wist je niet hè? Maar er zitten engeltjes in Een boterham met hagelslag Daarom is die natuurlijk zo ontzettend lekker! Dus! Waar kun je me 's nachts voor wakker maken? Waar maak je vrienden mee? Een boterham met hagelslag! Die sloeg nog nooit iemand af. Translation: Hackenslacken Aaah, good morning! And we're up again. And, I long for... Yes, already I long for... I long so much for Small pieces of chocolate Or more precisely: chocolate flavour But still we call it chocolate, that's just as easy On a sandwich Small pieces of chocolate On a sandwich Oh yeah That's so delicious Early in the morning after tea I close my eyes and savour! Those delightful Devine Indescribable Pieces of Chocolate It's unbelievable! Whoever invented this deserves a statue! For these inventive Progressive Pieces of Chocolate On my sandwich My sandwich with chololate sprinkles Yeah, from Venz, or De Ruyter But actually I just prefer the private label Of Albert Heijn But yeah You can't get everything you want Do you hear the angels yet? They're in there! Yeah! You didn't know that, did you? But there are angels in A sandwich with chocolate sprinkles That's why it's so incredibly tasty! So! What can you wake me up for in the middle of the night? What brings you friends? A sandwich with chocolate sprinkles! No one could ever refuse that

Bed Day 03:49
Bed Day Woke up this morning Not feeling too well Opened my eyes and found a mess Woke up this morning Not feeling too well Opened my eyes and found a mess This ain’t no room for living No, no, it’s just a room full of mess Opened the curtains Let the sun hurt my eyes To find the window full of grease Opened the curtains Let the sun hurt my eyes To find the window full of grease TThis window ain’t for watching No, no, it’s just a window full of grease Walked to the kitchen To fix me a drink Found dirty dishes in the sink Walked to the kitchen To fix me a drink Found dirty dishes in the sink There ain’t no glass for drinking No, no, there ain’t no glass for a drink Opened the fridge To get me some food Just to find mildew on the fruit Opened the fridge To get me some food Just to find mildew on the fruit That ain’t no fruit for eating No, no that ain’t no useful fruit Got me the paper And read me some news Only to read about more death Got me the paper And read me some news Only to read about more death This paper ain’t for reading No, no, it’s just a messenger of death So I walk backwards Crawl back into bed And pull the sheets over my head So I walk backwards Crawl back into bed And pull the sheets over my head This ain’t no day for waking No, no, it’s just a day for bed This ain’t no day for waking No, no, it’s just a day for bed This ain’t no day for waking No, no, it’s just a day for bed

Dishes 02:42
Dishes Dishes piled in the elevator Dishes piled out on the grass Dishes are the aggrevator Dishes make my life a mess Dishes stuck to the coffee maker Dishes stacked on the bedroom floor Dishes are the undertaker Dishes chase me out the door And if someone’d be so kind as to do them I could maybe find some time for a life And if not, I am afraid I’ll use paper plates in time Dishes done and the sink is empty Dishes build right from the start Dishes circle is neverending Dishes messing up my art And if someone’d be so kind as to do them I could maybe find some time for a life And if not, I am afraid I’ll use paper plates in time I got dirty dishes Plenty dirty dishes Loads of dirty dishes Dishes in my head

Drops In The Sink Drip, drip, drip goes the water in my sink I want to feel you're really near Tick, tick, tick go the seconds on my clock I want to feel you're really here So we can count the clouds on my ceiling So we can drift away on that feeling Click, click, click go the neighbours on the floor I want to feel you're really near Rush, rush, rush go the tubes of the heating I want to feel you're really here So we can shut the drapes and talk in pictures And wipe the dust away from those pictures Of hope, black and white And the thumbprints of old The flicker of light Through the celluloid snow Flick away, turn the page Tell me all that they show For tonight I've got nowhere to go Drip, drip, drip, drip... Tick, tick, tick, tick... Click, click, click, click... Rush, rush, rush, rush... I want to shut the drapes and talk in pictures And wipe the dust away from those pictures Of hope, black and white And the thumbprints of old The flicker of light Through the celluloid snow Flick away, turn the page Tell me all that they show For tonight I've got nowhere to go Drip, drip, drip, drip... Tick, tick, tick, tick... Click, click, click, click... Rush, rush, rush, rush...

Shower 03:47
Shower The heat of the summer Has gone to my head I find myself riding my bike On a dusty old track I’m not thinking of you But it’s clear that I do Jump into the shower Dripping on my head Releasing the power That’s hiding in my chest The weight of the day Is flushing through the drain Was that all it takes? Oh, it’s nothing. I am not complaining Because the wheather’s so fine But something is seriously lacking At the side of this bike I’m not thinking of you But it’s clear that I do Jump into the shower Dripping on my head Releasing the power That’s hiding in my chest The weight of the day Is flushing through the drain Was that all it takes? Oh, it’s nothing. Pa-da-pa-da-da-pa-da-da… So continues this travel Across simmering lanes The pedals are pushing me forward Keep me ahead of the pain I’m not thinking of you But it’s clear that I do Jump into the shower Dripping on my head Releasing the power That’s hiding in my chest The weight of the day Flushing through the drain Was that all it takes? Oh, it’s nothing. Pa-da-pa-da-da-pa-da-da…

Home 03:26
Home A beautiful day The sky’s without a cloud The children play Everybody’s out But I am home I am home I am home oo-oo The traffic peaks There’s movement all around They’re all busy bees They drown in their own sounds While I am home I am home I am home I am home O, I am home I am home Sounds like there’s a party Didn’t bother to invite me They just are like echos Guess I’ll just go to bed And try to get used to the fact That I am finally invisible A beautiful day The sky’s without a cloud Everybody’s out But I am home

TV 05:12
TV Thoughts have ended, mind’s absented, you may enter now Creep up slowly, go unnoticed, you may enter now We will make you feel fine In exchange for your time Start out gently, watch intently how the plan unfolds Turn up needs and break down creeds until we’re in control We will ease all your pain In exchange for your brain Sit down easily and put it on Put it on, put it on, put it on We’re all here to bluntly bring you fun Put it on, put it on, put it on We proceeded, we succeeded, this subject is done Don’t complain now, lose your brain now, feel completely numb We will silence your strife In exchange for your life Sit down easily and put it on Put it on, put it on, put it on We’re all here to bluntly bring you fun Put it on, put it on, put it on Sit down easily and put it on Put it on, put it on, put it on

Silence 03:18
Silence Lock the door, lock the door, lock the door For now I won’t take no more Shut the drapes, shut the drapes, shut the drapes I just need some time away from all… These affairs, these affairs, these affairs Go find someone who cares ‘Cause I don’t, no I don’t, no I don’t Got some issues of my own to tend to ‘Cause silence is better than sorrow Silence is better than sorrow I’ll be with you tomorrow With a clean shirt and a smile It’s not that bad, not that bad, not that bad There’s no need to be sad Carry on, carry on, carry on I’m sure you’ll manage on your own while I’m… Taking care of these things in my head Or maybe just crawl into bed I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know I just need to be left alone (for now 'cause…) Silence is better than sorrow Silence is better than sorrow I’ll be with you tomorrow With a clean shirt and a smile Silence is better than sorrow Silence is better than sorrow Silence is better than sorrow Silence is better

Record 05:12
Record My life is a record, and it’s playing on repeat It is stuck inside this groove I don’t particularly need And the track is getting deeper while the dust has piled up fast Now the crackles drown the music of my past, ooh And it’s still movin’ on, groovin’ on Movin’ on, groovin’ on Manufactured lovingly, it left the pressing plant But outside its sterile rooms it showed it couldn’t understand That some are hits for millions, and others one day flies Still others downright failures in disguise, ooh And it’s still movin’ on, groovin’ on Movin’ on, groovin’ on And it’s still movin’ on, groovin’ on Movin’ on, groovin’ on Someone take that needle out of me My catalogue needs transfer to cd Shine me up and put me on display So I can keep movin’ on, groovin’ on Movin’ on, groovin’ on So I can keep movin’ on, groovin’ on Movin’ on, groovin’ on
