TURN OFF THE NEWS

(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

Here's another transmission with annoying information
Another dispatch from a far away nation
Look out man here it comes again
Another shitload of misery and pain

You'd better turn off the news
You'd better turn off the news
You'd better turn off the news
You'd better turn off the news

I saw my neighbors on the news today
They didn't look well in fact I think they were dead
Here's a report at the scene of crime
Woah we're really living in violent times

You'd better turn off the news...

This is reality speaking we've got news on the air
Sorry but we're all out of good news today
Here's another news flash you can do without
So put on your shades and turn the music up loud

You'd better turn off the news...


DOG
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I bought a paper brought it home made a plane made a boat
I can't read
A friend of mine gave me a cigarette I tried to look cool had an asthma attack
I can't smoke
I've got a car I'm shifting gears stomp the pedal it doesn't move
I can't drive
I met a girl I took her home I tried and I tried she started to laugh
I can't...

No matter how I try I just can't get it right
No matter how I try I just mess up all the time

I can't do what I wanna do...
I'm working hard to be a man

I bought a dog to have a friend goddamn thing bit my leg
I need love
Went to a party had a drink ended up in the kitchen sink
I need help

No matter how I try I just can't get it right
No matter how I try I just mess up all the time

I can't do what I wanna do...
I'm working hard to be a man

No matter how I try I just can't get it right
No matter how I try I just mess up all the time

I can't do what I wanna do...
I'm working hard to be a man


GRUESOME SUNDAY MORNING
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

It's a gruesome Sunday morning and another heavy day
I'm looking in the mirror and my whites are turning red
It's another freaky Sunday thanks to yesterday
There's something sticky on the floor and my kitchen's in a mess
There's a body in the bathroom which I can't identify
but I really like to know who is that wasted guy?
I'm checking my apartment it's not a pretty sight
My dog is in a coma it must have been some night

Here comes another freaky day
And I'm feeling kinda strange
I guess I should have stayed in bed

This morning the devil called me on the phone
I pretended to be someone else and said ”Sorry he's not home”
he said ”uh huh! I'll call again” and then he said ”goodbye”
I wonder what he had to say I just can't figure it out

Here comes...

It's a beautiful Sunday morning but I'm too drained to smile
Getting up too early really gets me down
My soul is somewhere else oh, this is worse than Mondays
how can it be so cold in the middle of the summer?

Here comes...


RESTLESS AGAIN
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I'm tired of sleeping on the floor
I'm tired of drinking all alone
I'm tired of being at home
I can't stay anymore

The walls are closing in
I've got bugs under my skin
It's really time to move on
The itch is getting too strong

I'm restless again...

Nobody calls me on the phone
And nothing much is going on
Nothing happens at all
Won't someone give me a call

I can't explain the way I feel
Don't know exactly what I need
And I don't know where to go
I'm going out of my mind

I'm restless again...

I can hear an inner call
Telling me I have to go
I need something new
I have to move along

Baby can't you see
I'm restless again...


AIN'T SEEN NOTHING
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

We've been hearing all kinds of rumors
We've been hearing something's going on
A lot of talking but we ain't seen nothing at all

They're all talking 'bout this big thing coming
All the walls are about to fall
A lot of talking but we ain't seen nothing at all

Come on baby tell me again
Please say that we're on our way
Come on tell me what I wanna know
Come on tell me that it's time to go

One step closer or was it one step further away?
One step closer or was it one step further away?

A lot of people they scream and shout
We don't know what it's all about
A lot of shouting but we ain't seen nothing at all

A lot of rumors in the air tonight
Get ready for the big surprise
They say we're leaving but we ain't seen nothing at all

Come on baby tell me again
please say that we're on our way
come on tell me what I wanna know
come on tell me that it's time to go

One step closer or was it one step further away?
One step closer or was it one step further away?

Ain't seen nothing
Nothing at all...


HITCH-HIKE TO CAUDINE FORKS
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

I was hanging around looking for fun
Trying so hard to find me some
I was wasting my time 'til I met this guy
He said ”Hey man do you need a ride?”
I got into his car he said ”hello I'm God
I can take you anywhere you want Where do you wanna go?”
I said ”I don't know”
He said ”Ever been to Caudine Forks?”

I took a ride on the fatal highway
I took a ride on the wrong highway

”In a car doin' 145 is there a better place to be?
We can go anywhere do anything” he said
”it doesn't matter much to me”
I'm not sure he's got a licence he's a really bad driver
This is going much too fast
Lights are flashing by like tracers through the night

I took a ride on the fatal highway
I took a ride on the wrong highway...

Well it wasn't such fun to ride with number one
He might be The Lord but he can't drive a Ford
I keep looking through the window there's nothing to see
We ain't talking much God and me
But I get shivers down my spine when he cracks a smile
”There's no turning back this time we're going much too fast for that
so shut up and relax”

I took a ride on the fatal highway
I took a ride on the wrong highway...

MACHINE GUN JUSTICE (A LOVE SONG)
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

What can I say what can I do?
I can't let you go
I'm not the same guy anymore
You don't believe me but it's true every single word
I would do all of this for you

You're on my mind all of the time
Machine gun justice
It's gonna bring you back to me
Machine gun justice
I won't stop for anything...

I'll make some stew with my brain and serve it as a meal
If it would bring you back to me
I'd drain the cup of misery all down to the dregs
I'm going crazy can't you see

You're on my mind all of the time
Machine gun justice...

I would mutilate myself
If you want me to and mail the pieces back to you
You just tell me what to do
And I'll give you my heart my kidneys and my liver too

You're on my mind all of the time...


NO REASON
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

Why should I get a job and try to set things right?
Why should I settle down when there's a party on tonight?
I don't care about my body why should I keep in shape?
I've got a real good reason for being just who I am

Can't you see what's going on?

Is there a reason to believe it's getting harder all the time
When the world is full of clowns and everything is coming down
What's the point of going straight tell me why I should behave
When preachers turn to sin and politicians turn to crime

Why don't you take a look around?

No reason no reason to be sane today
No reason no reason
Can't you see what's going on?
No reason no reason to be sane today
No reason no reason at all

What's the point of growing up why should I shut my mouth?
When killers become heroes and truth is turning into lies
I don't care about the world you can have it if you want
I'd rather be a dreamer with a six-pack getting drunk

Why don't you take a look around?

No reason...

RISE AGAIN
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

It's been going on for ages
And somehow it never changes
Read the signs through history
Remember everything you see
Think twice before you act
'cause you're gonna start a chain reaction
You gotta learn from your mistakes
It's gonna hit you hard some day

I don't know how I don't know when
But it will always rise again

You'd better watch out where you're going
You'd better think about what you're doing
We're all affected by the past
You can't deny it it's matter of fact
Think twice before you act...

I don't know how I don't know when...

You'd better watch out where you're going...

I don't know how I don't know when...


BABY DOC HOLIDAY
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

In my plane high up above I am thinking what did I do wrong
People just don't understand I bet they gonna miss me when I'm gone
It's not easy at the top the peasants are complaining all the time
If you make a small mistake 50. 000 people demonstrate

All they think about is money while our country's going down the drain
I only took what I required now I'm on a Baby Doc holiday

I only brought them law and order and this is how they pay me back
But I've got everything I need got some money in a foreign bank

It's hard to please everybody a few got lost along the way
Well if that's the way they want it I'll go for a Baby Doc holiday

Things were getting out of hand I was lucky to get out alive
I had to leave my Cadillacs the art collection and my favourite wife
Got a place in southern France as long as you've got money you've got friends

They haven't seen the last of me I'll be back and I will not forget

Goodbye I'm leaving for a while now but I'll be back again some day
For anyone who tries to reach me I'm on a Baby Doc holiday...


SERGEANT
(Kiesbye/Norberg/Olsson/Gäfvert)

Well I'm six foot seven
I weigh about twenty one stone
I've got forearms wide as tree trunks
And I'm proud of what I've done

Yeah I'm the Sarge I'm a bible man
I'm so sharp I'm gonna cut myself
I don't want to be pushed around
I'm gonna turn you inside out

You know it's payback time
And I ain't got time to bleed

Yeah I'm the Sarge I'm a bible man
I'm so sharp I'm gonna cut myself
I don't want to be pushed around
I'm gonna turn you inside out
Yeah yeah...
I'm the Sarge and I'm here to stay

I'm the good guy on your side
And I'm here to save the world

Yeah I'm the Sarge I'm a bible man...

I'm the Sarge and I'm here to stay
I'm the Sarge and I'm going in
I'm the Sarge and I'm gonna win
I'm the Sarge and I am the king...
