Track Name: Just One Kiss
Just One Kiss

Just one kiss, oh oh just one kiss, all will be good
Just one kiss, oh-oh just one kiss, you’ll be doing well.
You’ll sit on a golden throne, you’ll wear a purple gown.
And everyone will love you and cheer your name.

But he’s so green and tiny, can’t anybody see?
They say, “Come on just try it! He’ll be a prince, just one kiss!”
But I don’t believe in fairy tales anymore.

He won’t ask that much from you just paint your toenails red,
you’ll be his queen forever, he’ll tuck you in in bed.
He won’t ask that much from you, just let him play his games.
He’s sitting in his castle and waiting for the flames.

If you don’t wanna kiss him, people point at you.
“How can you turn it down? And go another way?”
I don’t believe in fairy tales anymore.

But I hope, there’ll be a princess, who’ll lift the spell from you.
I’m sorry, I’m not royal. My name is Jane Doe.
Did not have magic powers, did not have magic lips.
Was just a simple girl who loved you.

Just one kiss, oh oh just one kiss, all will be good
Just one kiss, oh-oh just one kiss, you’ll be doing well.
Just one kiss, oh oh just one kiss, all will be good
Just one kiss, oh-oh just one kiss, you’ll be doing well.
Track Name: Keys
Come close dear and give me one last kiss
For I am not what you once thought of me
I’m your fatal destiny, you don’t know it but you’re lost, my love
It’s not my fault that I’m so beautiful,
that I enchant bout ev’ry man I see
I sing a deadly melody that’s killing you internally.

Here is my gift for you, you yummy gentleman
temptations are the doorway to your promised land.
Juices are flowing, my appetite is growing as we play.
You lucky prey, dinner is served, but sorry, you can’t stay.

Once you taste my sugary lips
you cannot stop, you hop right in my nest.
The air is honey heavy, your foggy brain wants more and more of me

Here is my gift for you, you yummy gentleman
temptations are the doorway to your promised land.
Juices are flowing, my appetite is growing as we play.
You lucky prey, dinner is served, but sorry, you can’t stay.

Keys in my drawer from men who are no more
locked your treasures, now call to me my pleasures
Cold metal smells so sweet
I close my eyes and sleep.

Here is my gift for you, la la la…
Track Name: Hide & Seek
Purple palm tree’s swaying on
Waves whispering a secret song
In a language only you and I are speaking
Hidden dreams float on the ground,
A fantasy until we found
A place only you and I believe in.

See my soul, it’s the safest place to hide.
Covered by the ocean, the moon is alive.

Don’t know your name, show me your face.
It’s just a game, show me your face, your face, your face.

On the ridge it’s calm and sweet.
You said you used to hide and seek,
And sleep with the moon as your cover.
You ran and ran without a rest.
You said you would have never guessed
In a different life you could be my lover.

Bring me to the horizon, we’re devils and black sheep.
Steering a Black Pearl, the fog is so deep.

I know your name, show me your face.
Come play that game, show me your face, your face, your face.

When the moon gets washed ashore,
There’s no more “either or”,
Maybe one day there will be no more maybe.
When the palm tree stops to sway
I hear my heartbeat far away
In a world where there’s just you and me.

A fire in the window tells me you are here.
Lost in your maze I feel no fear.

Don’t need your name, just need your face.
It’s not a game, show me your face, your face, your face.
Track Name: The Blue Café
I’m sitting in this small and blue café
It’s cold outside, I’m ord’ring some black tea.
It tastes the same as on this foggy day
When you sat there and spoke so kind to me.

I still remember ev’ry single word
Your smile and laugh burned in my memory.
Your facial features far from being blurred.
My skin is marked where you once touched my knee.

It’s not the music not the chat I hear.
The only tone I notice is your voice.
It sounds as clear and near and dear as you were here.
But you are not and I don’t have a choice.

No no no sense in clinging to that farewell song.
Although although our, although although our love’s not dead, I know you’re gone
Track Name: Kitty in the City
The sound of the city makes the kitty wanna break a bird’s neck.
And stretch, and jump and fall and sink my claws in bark or in a dog’s nose.

Wanna drink water from the dirtiest puddle, chase a poodle and get in trouble
the most handsome tom in my hood, just making sure that’s understood.

The pulse of the city makes the kitty wanna sneak out a midnight
as sleek as a snake I slink through the grass with growing delight.

Catch a fish from my neighbor’s pond – the one he’s so very fond of
Catch a mouse just for fun, like to scare it punch by punch.

Don’t put me on a leash, if you’ll just let me go,
I promise I’ll come back, and curl up on your lap.
I’ll be the sweetest boy, I’ll fetch and bring your toy,
keep your feet nice and warm, make you feel less alone!

Back home, I’m the king and you’re the lucky servant, I need a backrub!
I like to dine on finest foods you know mice are not for kings!

When I let you pet my belly, you think I’m so angelic,
and I am until tonight, when my wickedness ignites.
Track Name: The Joker
Pounding heart and sweaty forehead, hush hush, just a bad, bad dream.
I step out of the bed and follow a whispering, what’s that noise coming out of that door?

Just one flip of my coin and I know
Scars mean death but clean will let you go
My hazy vapor as your worst embrace
Those twirl your nightmare are my bare existence?

How do you know I’m mad?--Oh you must be!
Or you wouldn’t have come here, wouldn’t have come, be my guest!

Never eat beans, they’re little devils, and
yes, I’m a little kitty kitty cat, meow!
The president’s sticking his head out of my
ass don’t you see him? He is waving at you?

How do you know I’m mad?--Oh you must be!
Or you wouldn’t have come here, wouldn’t have come, be my guest!

I run and run and run and run, and finally open my eyes.
It’s over, over, they are gone, and sanity runs through my veins.
“Who said, who said, who said, we are gone”


Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, welcome to the funhouse!
Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, why so serious?
Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, Willkommen im Irrenhaus!
Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, why so serious?
Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, welcome to the funhouse!
Boom, zip-a dee-zip-a dee-do-da, why so serious?
Track Name: Would You Rather
A dark devil in my head, can’t make it go away.
A dark devil in my head, I really want it gone
It is grinning like a demon, not letting me go, letting me go-o!
A dark devil in my eyes, a vicious veil blinding me.
A dark shadow falling filling up my soul
With my never ending screaming…. Just let me go, let me go!

In my dreams, I’m lying at a lake
My love just two inches away
A warm breeze blowing from the south
A long forgotten smile on my mouth

A dark devil in my head hisses “Would you rather?”
No matter where you go, you will be cut in half
there’s nothing left to win now, you can only lose, only lose.

And in my dreams I’m suddenly aware
A girl running up and down the stairs
Running, twirling, dancing, catching raindrops.
Holding a treasure in her hand.

They say the sky will be blue again, although you don’t believe it.
They say the sky will be blue again, not only in your dreams.
They say you’ll know the truth again, although you don’t believe it.
They say you’ll know the truth again, not only in your dreams.
They say you will be you again, although you don’t believe it.
They say you will be you again, not only in your dreams.
