NO PLACE TO LAND

(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I'm an object high above
I'm nothing but a dot in the sky
I close my eyes and I don't look down
All alone at the speed of light
I keep on moving I've gotta get out
I've got the real world on my trail

No place, no place to land...

Up in glory down in flames
Neck or nothing tooth or nail
That's my bona-tide masterplan
You've got a choice you can come with me
Or you can stay and be my enemy
I'm gonna fly like a moth into the flames
Just like a moth into the flames

No place, no place to land
No place to land it's every man for himself

Can you see me cross the sky?
I'm so high I'm a shooting star
I've got wings and I will fly
I'm gonna touch the pinholes in the curtain of night
I've got a house on milkyway
I've got a house on milkyway

No place, no place to land...


OUT OF THE VOID
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I've been pushed around, I've been lied about
I've seen the bottom of the bottomless pit
I've been out on my own, I've been ripped and torn
But I've never been down on my knees

Going 'round and 'round in a circle line
It's about to break my back
I won't try anymore to be part of the game
'Cause there's not enough cards to play

Out of the void
I've never felt like this before

I've been stuck in this place for far to long
Now something's gotta give
So tell me a lie and I'll follow it down
Because anything's better than this

Out of the void
I've never felt like this before

What goes on in my mind?
I don't know what to feel
I don't like what I find
And I don't know what it means

I hate this place, I can't shake the taste
Gotta bring the hammer down
There's only one reason I'm still around
I can't find the exit sign

Out of the void
I've never felt like this before


JETSLIDE
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I've gotta tell you 'bout the way I lived
They used to treat me with dignity
My position was where you are now
This city used to be so good to me

Don't you wanna come along?
There's something i must show you
Don't you wanna come along?
Don't you wanna come along?

I blew it all you knew how things can be
It all happens with the speed of light
Some people say I've got myself to blame
Maybe I will understand in time

Don't you wanna come along...

Take my hand and see the jetslide where I fell
Lend me your ear for a while...

Yeah, I was one of the idle rich
I used to come here almost every day
I guess they told you all you need to know
But don't believe a single word they say

Don't you wanna come along...

Take my hand and see the jetslide where I fell
Lend me your ear for a while...


NEXT TO NOTHING
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I'm keeping out of sight staying low
Always being quit moving slow
Nothing but a face in the crowd
Trying not to make my fuss to loud

I won't forget my place I stand in line
I always try to pay the rent on time
Trying to find a way to kill my days
Waiting for the frame to crack

Next to nothing, next to nothing
Next to nothing at all

Never been close to what I want
I know what to do but still I don't
I'm sticking to myself I make no sound
Waiting for a chance that might not come

Next to nothing...

Just a flicker in the needle's eye
Just a grain in a desert storm
Just a drop in a river gone dry
Nothing much at all

I've always tried to do what I've been told
Only know my neighbors through the walls
Looking out the window at my street
I don't think this place was meant for me

Next to nothing...


THE BIG SHAKEDOWN
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Tell me how can I trust you
When the things you say are not the things you do
Tell me how can I be sure
When you've broken all your promises before

What am I supposed to do
You've gotta tell me what it means to you
What am I supposed to do
You've gotta tell me what it means to you

Tell me how, how can I know
If the words I hear means anything at all
Tell me how can I believe
When the trust in you is running out of steam

What am I supposed to do...

The big shakedown
I'm on the verge of turning around
The big shakedown
Just on the verge of turning around
Turning around...

Solo

Tell me why, why should I care
When you talk like you would never talk again

What am I supposed to do...


A SAFETYBELT FOR SUZIE
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

She's always hanging around with the cool guys
Trying to get a piece of the action
She's so bright but she'll never find out
That all they want from her is friction

Says she don't do drugs anymore
But she's always on medication
She gets what she wants all the time
She's done her home work to perfection

We need a safetybelt for Suzie
She's not alright...
A safetybelt for Suzie
She's not alright...

She can be the snake in your life
Or the monkey on your back
She can make any man go blind
She's so good at playing games

We need a safetybelt for Suzie
She's not alright...

Too far gone, untouchable
Completely unpredictable

And she feeds from your attention
She feeds from your attention

We need a safetybelt for Suzie
She's not alright...


IT REALLY DOESN'T MATTER NOW
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I could have seen it coming down the road
I could have planned for days to come
It took me some time but now I know for sure
But with a trail of broken things behind

It really doesn't matter now

I thought too much about things too small
It's all so clear with the scene behind
You're not a hero if you lose the war
What was lost now can't be found

It really doesn't matter now...

Everytime I had the chance to stop
And everytime the chance to turn around
I could fool myself but what's the point
We will all be gone it's just a matter of time

So it really doesn't matter now...


KICKELKUM
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Instrumental


RIDE THE JACKHAMMER
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

You borrowed time Watcha gonna do?
You're going down Watcha gonna do?
There's no return Watcha gonna do?
You're gonna burn Watcha gonna do?

Ride the Jackhammer, ride the Jackhammer
You've got it all but you still want more...

You shut the door Watcha gonna do?
You're out of hope Watcha gonna do?
'Cause you've been bad Watcha gonna do?
Now you've been had Watcha gonna do?

Ride the Jackhammer, ride the Jackhammer
You've got it all but you still want more...

You're on your own now
You'd better run
You're all alone now
Well ain't it fun?

Ride the Jackhammer, ride the Jackhammer
You've got it all but you still want more...


I DON'T WANNA TALK ABOUT THE WHEATHER ANYMORE
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I can't do this anymore, it doesn't make no sense
It's just a waste of time
I've gotta run, I've gotta run
I've been through it all before, here it comes again
It really gets me down
I've gotta run, I've gotta run

Already know what you're about to say
So I don't need this conversation again
'Cause it's always the same

I don't know what I'm gonna do
But I know that something's gonna happen soon
I've gotta run, I've gotta run
I'm tired if hanging around
I know the name of every street in town
I've gotta run, I've gotta run

Breaking the rules is the price to pay
But I can't stay here for the rest of my days
'Cause it all looks the same

Don't wanna talk about the weather anymore
My lips are sealed 'cause I've got nothing more to say
Don't need to listen when I've heard it all before
I know what you're about to say

You don't know what you're talking about
It's just a way for you to exercise your mouth
I've gotta run, I've gotta run
You're the kind I can do without
You talk too much and way too loud
I've gotta run, I've gotta run

Already know what you're about to say...

Don't wanna talk about the weather anymore...


BLACK DOG MOOD
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Black dog mood has come to you again
You played the game without a chance to win
A tiny spark lightened up the day
The everything around you turned obscene

Always, sideways, never straight
Wrong time, wrong place, time and time again

Black dog mood turns it all around
Your eyes are as cloudy as your mind
Hurt yourself, drive the staples deep
Wear your misery for a crown

Always, sideways, never straight
Wrong time, wrong place, time and time again

Someone said
"If a tree grows up to heaven the roots reach down to hell"

Always, sideways, never straight
Wrong time, wrong place, time and time again


BOSSANOVA DEATH TRIP
(Gäfvert)

Instrumental


I'M GONE
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I'm gone - I don't know where I am
I'm gone - Like the money I just had
I'm gone - But I haven't left town
I'm gone - More lost than found
I'm gone

You know I'll be gone before
You can count to three or four
You know that I'll be...

Gone as a dog gone dinosaur dog eat dog like a cat in a gold fish bowl
I'm gone for good for better and for worse than you by the way did you see my note NO!

I'm gone - Missing in the fog
I'm gone - I'm drinking with the dogs
I'm gone - I'm not really home
I'm gone - Do you wanna come along?
I'm gone

You know I'll be gone before...

Gone as a dog...


LOSE CONTROL
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Tell me what to do
Tell me where I am
I can't find this place
It must be off the map

Nothing more to lose
No reason to remain
Faster all the time
To keep me from myself

I don't wanna lose control
I don't wanna lose control

I don't like this place
I'm leaving here tonight
If I can't stay awake
Maybe you can drive

I don't wanna lose control
I don't wanna lose control

Time is killing me
But I'm not killing time
The view is always better
From the other side

I don't wanna lose control
I don't wanna lose control
I don't wanna lose control
I don't want  a lose control


FREEZER
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Bartell/Stringfellow)

Do you know how it feels to be lonesome
Have you ever lost your smile along the way
Did you ever see some light in the distance
And suddenly it all gets dark again

I don't care if I feel or if I don't
I don't care if I feel or if I don't

Did you ever walk the night that never ends
Not knowing where to go or where you are
Did you ever drain the cup of loneliness
While demons courted angels with their charm

I don't care if I feel or if I don't
I don't care if I feel or if I don't

Why do I try, when I know the reason why
Now the ember chill inside me burning blue
Why do I try, when I know the reason why
Now the embers chill inside me burning blue

Did you ever try to call out for somebody
And all you got was echoes in return
Did you ever walk the streets of emptiness
Cold and bare and nowhere left to turn

Why do I try, when I know the reason why
Now the embers chill inside me burning blue
Why do I try, when I know the reason why
Now the embers chill inside me burning blue


ANXIETY, COKE AND CHOCOLATE BARS
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

I would never turn my back on you if you were me
I would never talk the way I do
I'm always on your side but please do not forget
I've got a side of my own too

Anxiety, coke and chocolatebars
Took us all this far
Anxiety, coke and chocolatebars
Made us what we are, made us what we are

I've got a million ways to tell you how I feel
But I don't feel at all today
If you can see your own reflection in my eyes
You'd better take a few steps back

Anxiety, coke and chocolatebars
Took me all this way
Anxiety, coke and chocolatebars
Is all I need today

I'm looking for the spice of life
Whatever that could be
Another turn around the clock
I've got a hungry mind to feel

The Sunday paper tells you all the things you need to know
And I've learned a lot from innersleeves

Anxiety, coke and chocolatebars
Took us all this far...


I GUESS I'M OK
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Hey I'm OK, I'm alright
I'm supposed to be this way
I feel great, and I like
All the different shades of grey

Down and out, for a while
Your bark was harder than your bite
I'll be fine, I am sure
It's only a fleshwound

So I guess I'm OK
I sort of like it this way
I don't know what to say
So I guess I'm OK

Common sense, slows you down
Leaves a bad taste in your mouth
It's far too late, to die young
And what is done is done

So I guess I'm OK...

Hey I'm OK, I'm alone
I don't really need a friend
I always say, what I mean
But I don't always mean what I say

So I guess I'm OK...


GOD SAVE TECHNOLOGY
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Arise and sing the praise of our new gods
This is the age of miracles, the best of times
The future has arrived
This is the kingdom come
A new sensation everyday

I'm a modern man
I need modern things to get me through the day
I need modern things 'cause I've got modern needs

The king is dead, long live the king
Bless me science, 'cause I need to sin
Plastic flowers never die
I love highways at night
A new sensation everyday

I'm a modern man
I need modern things to get me through the day
I need modern things 'cause I've got modern needs
I need modern things that I can understand
I need modern things 'cause I've got modern needs

I turn my head to Houston when I pray
And I'm in love with my TV-set
Electronic toys
Artificial joy
A new sensation everyday

I'm a modern man...


BUY NOW, PAY FOREVER!
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Gäfvert)

Come over here, come closer friends
We've got a special treat for you
We take your card, or we take your cash
Yeah almost anything will do
We aim to please, at your command
We've got exactly what you need
We've got it all, don't miss the chance
Your satisfaction guaranteed

A brand new face, or new ideas
We've got it all if you can pay
'Cause in this place, eternal luck
Is never but a step away
Let's try it now, just take the bait
Eat or be eaten, don't be late
Don't think too much, don't hesitate
Come back again and have some more
Have some more

Buy now, pay forever

We sell you dreams of paradise
We build you castles in the air
We've got a heap of great white lies
We've got a reimbursement plan
Don't wait too long, 'cause we can all
Enjoy the lifestyle of the rich
Just let us in, into your life
And all your problems will be gone
Will be gone

Buy now, pay forever

"Those who eat now, who ever ate before
and those who always ate now eat the more"
Eat the more

Buy now, pay forever

IGGY WAS A FARMER (hidden bonus track)
(Kiesbye/Norberg)

Iggy was a farmer
He had a little farm
He had a lot of pigs
And he had a lot of cows

Iggy was a farmer
He was a happy man
He had a nice daugher
And every chicken had a name
Hay!

Iggy was a farmer
He was growing corn
He didn't have a tractor
He was happy with his horse
Hay!

Iggy was a farmer
