Track Name: Frightday night
We cannot take you
We cannot believe you
We cannot tease you

We cannot praise you
but we cannot leave you
we cannot please you

Looking for some fun on a Friday night
Just carrying the pain of hanging around and….

Being afraid, being afraid

Revving up the engines
I will hit the town
I’m following the manual for having fun

Be afraid, be afraid
Oh! be afraid, be afraid

Looking for some fun in the night, just holding tight to another hand

Looking for someone in the night
to change this endless feeling of despite

Don’t want to freeze, don’t want to get old
Don’t want a bad dream, don’t want to get lost
I’m on the rooftop ready to fall
Looking for a rush before i get old.

Looking for fun on a Friday night

While you keep calling… keep calling…
keep calling… keep calling… keep calling… keep calling… aaahhhhh !!!

(Girl, you’re not a mystery, a mystery will come)
Track Name: Perfect service
Perfect service
The waitress is delicious but she’s looking sad
I cannot escape from things like that

Now or never
If you really love me tell me something clever
I can tell by your eyes when you lie

Hold me tighter,
I need to feel your warmth to keep my heart beating
I will turn the lights on, are you feeling fine?

Perfect service
The waitress is delicious but she’s feeling lonely
I can feel the distance in her smile

Only on a special day,
I can break the gap between our lies
On a hopeless day,
castaway I turn inside my mind


Are you looking for a perfect service ???
Track Name: Violent drama
This is how we stand
To live our lives in peace
We give ourselves with pleasure
To new technologies

New comedia
Violent drama
New dementia
This is how we stand

As we walk the city (when we are down)
We are not alone (we can’t stop)
Memories around us (carving up)
The memories we’ve got (our own thougths)

sometimes we’ll be down (I know)
sometimes we’ll be back (you know)
and sometimes we will fall (we will fall)

Watch out, your smile gets thin
A doubt grows in your crown
A crab with shaky claws
To grab the inner cup
A cloud with smokey tail
But there’s no fire to trace
(I will hit the floor, watch the flowers where they grow)
Are you trying to get some distance?
Are you trying to get some distance?

This is how we stand!

I will take some more electricity

I know, you know, we know, they know:

We will fall!
We will fall!
We will fall!
Track Name: C'mon everybody
Come on everybody
Come on everybody
Come on everybody
Come on….

Come on everybody
Come on and move your body
Come on everybody
Come on…. Come on…. Come on….. Come on….

These are the days to sow
the time to glow has just begun

Come on everybody
Come on everybody
Come on everybody
Come on everybody
Come on…

Everybody, give your body to the music
When you give yourself it’s a brand-new day, Yeah!

Hello radio!
Hello butter and toasts!
Hello breaking news!
Yellow morning lines!

Everybody, give your body to the music
When you give yourself it’s a brand-new day, Yeah!
Track Name: God, give us a chance
It’s been a lonely time
Of freaking cheers,
Awakening sadness
Days of lonesome gathering
With beer through the air
Knives up to the skies
In endless battles of fears and dreams
God, give us a chance!

Since we left our community
We stepped ahead of poverty
Across the dangerous misty seas
Beside the pain to welcome the glee
Jumping below the naked skies
Singing: God, give us a chance!

Holy spirits in the skies
Destiny is written down
God believes in preservation
Guess you have an invitation

After years of preparation
We’ve made a splendid demonstration
Forgiving the boundaries of the nations
Forgetting the traps in communication
Naked below the empty skies
Singing: God, give us a chance!
Track Name: Boy!
I’m stuck inside a dream
I wander around the streets
And I get sick of the empty paintings on the bricks

I’m taking lots of pills
It seems I can’t face life another way
now I’m boring everyone and myself

I just hear:
Boy! why’d you run away from me?
Don’t you know?, boy!, we are living in this world like beasts
Shine! boy! keep an eye on what you say
Step by step, future’s imitating yesterday

I’m missing all the words
The dark night floods my soul
Now I give in to the rough knife like a loaf

I just hear:
Boy! Why’d you run away from me?
Don’t u know? we are living in a fantasy
Shine! But keep an eye on what u take
Day by day
Culture is dictating what u say

Boy! Boy! Boy!
Boy! Boy! Boy!

I’m living life with ease
And thinking more and more that this is not a fantasy

(Boy you’re breaking all you‘re making)
Track Name: My old friend
My old friend
He is my old friend
Coming to life again
He is my old friend

He left his job with tears
to face the heater and the fears
And now he’s turning ‘round his life
to take it all back

He drove a vulgar car
Now the void weighs upon his mind
Over the avenues he stands
with a solemn stare.


‘Cause he is afraid of nothing,
No, anyone can try
To make it happen
‘Cause anything could last
but it doesn’t matter

My old friend
He is my old friend....
Track Name: Nothing but this
I made myself into a common guy
With normal friends,
To have a common life
And now it seems to be so overwhelming
It’s been some time I know I got it coming

And then the strength of living came back to me
I fell away from every philosophy
I realized I won’t be everlasting
Just have a look, you will find nothing but this


Oh! Honey, Honey!
Don’t you ask me for money,money,money,money,
Honey! Honey!
Track Name: Dust is gold
Blinded by the sharp lights of the night
I can hear the bright cars passing by
Sugar melts as coffee burns
Flavored chips and old film lines took me by surprise
And little squirrels, cigarettes and guns
Everyone is raising up his flag
They’re colorblind, colorblind

Steamy faces behind a brothel window
So what’s before the burning of the shades?
He will be betrayed by her true eyes
‘Cause after all, dust is gold and rubbish is a mine.

And little bird’s black silhouettes in flight
Everyone is raising up his flag
They’re colorblind, colourblind

Who achieves the images in black and white?
They left the pictures half and half
(half and half and half)
They left their pictures in the dark...

Sugar melts as coffee burns
Sugar melts as coffee burns
Track Name: Man from outer space
Let me tell you about a young man
He’s been living in danger of death
You may know that he cant feel, no
He cant feel, no! lalalalalalalala!

He is in love with a powerful girl
She uses punk skirts as a masquerade
She doesn’t know but he can t feel, no!
He can’t feel, no! lalalalalalalalalalala!

Let me tell you about a wild man (wild man!)
He’s been living in outer space (outer space!)
After years of denial he lost his will

You can dance
with everyone
But you can fool no one at all.

They stole a rocket from a parking lot
(Told all their friends they were leaving)
Made all the arrangements to leave the earth
(Took all their clothes and their feelings)
Invited friends to a party on the moon
(Falling stars, records and red wine)
To watch the cosmos from the swimming pool
(Hum!)

You may know that they can’t feel, no!
They can’t feel, no!
He can’t feel, no!
He can’t feel, no! lalalalalalalalalalalalala!
Track Name: Margot
You know Margot
Where does her mind go?
What do her hands show?
Holding her dark coat?

She’s only waiting for the day
Standing in the night the city lightens her hair

Think of Margot
(Tell me where she was)
Lost in the alley like a ghost
(Lost like a ghost)
Tell me how much it can cost
Tell me how much

She must be waiting for her man
Standing in the night the city lightens her hair

Margot floats in the night
(yes, she floats through the night)
Like a soft dandelion
(in her feathers and furs)
And she rests in the hands of anyone
Margot floats in the night
(yes, she flies through the night)
In her feathers and furs
(like a cellophane queen)
she’s left the rainbow with her Ma

You know Margot
(you know she will get lost)
Where does her mind go?
(in the alley like a ghost)
What do her legs show?
(tell me how much it can cost)
wearing those black socks
(tell me how much)

You know Margot
You know Margot
You know Margot Aaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh!!!
Track Name: Wild celebration
We had a little romance
But the people in town are still laughing
In a wild old dog celebration
With fire and everyone's in

But we are still dancing, we are still dancing… Ah!

We can buy some land to build a cosy home
with a futuristic garden,
And every afternoon we’ll drink some wine
and play around with our laser rays.
Yet, we must admit that time goes by
and we can argue over simple things.
Babe, is that good for you?
Then we‘ll be safe and losing ourselves in the view.

And every time we have the chance we’ll lie down,
watch the phantom stars breaking the roof.
Within the aluminum grass
the trees will grow as high as interstellar lights.
In symptomatic chemistry we’ll try to realize
what true love can be..
Baby, that’s good for me,
And we’ll be waiting to embrace ourselves in the dark
And…. Uhhhh !!!

After all the medicines we took to turn us on,
our space collapses to a tragic comic end
and galaxies explode.
But there will be another fantasy,
another track, another go!
Track Name: Arthur is lost in loneliness without help
I wanna be alone
Alone with my thoughts
Wanna be alone at home,
alone with my thoughts
Smoking big cigars
Looking like a bum
I wanna be alone at home,
Alone with my thoughts

I wanna be alone
Alone with my thoughts
Wanna be alone at home,
alone with my thoughts
Playing my guitar
Feeding all my cats
I wanna be alone at home,
Alone with my thoughts

Come with me to the sugar tree
It’s a happy place where sugar’s free
Come with me to the sugar tree
Don’t wanna be alone. Oh!
Come with me to the sugar tree
It’s a happy place where sugar’s free
Come with me to the sugar tree
It’s a happy place, c’mon !!!

Are you really alone?
(Arthur’s maze)
Get your stuff off my lawn
You’re not welcome anymore
Leave me the scotch
So you say you’re alone
You’re just a spoiled boy
Take your charts and your songs
You’re not welcome anymore
(Arthur’s maze)

I don’t know if you heard me
But there is something you must know
I will tell you once
And I will tell you twice
I don’t want you on my block

‘Cause I have been my whole life here
Standing on this corner alone
I’m the one who rules here
I don’t want your nose near
I don’t want you on my block
(I don’t want you on my block!)

Like everybody here you are heating your anger
With your mobile phone you are cooking your balls
And all your moves and your violent reactions
Are just a cause of what you’re living up to

And you may say you are doin’ OK
But you don’t know what is coming up next
You better run to preserve your own health
You’ll find a place to be safe from the rain

Well, I don’t know where you come from
And I don’t know who you are
But I will tell you once and I may tell you twice that
I don’t want you on my block

Cause I don’t know why you’re here
And I don’t care if you’re alone
I’m the one who rules here
I don’t want your nose near
I don’t want you on my block
(I don’t want you on my block)

(No! No! No!)


As I walk out of the city
I can see the people coming in
How wonderful to watch all those faces
Full of hope

Here comes Arthur Maze
Smiling on a rainy day
and he’s walking straight to you
so, come on, don’t be a shy boy
open up your eyes
focus your mind
show your white teeth
give a smile to Arthur Maze!

Sure you’re gonna find a better place
(maze, maze, Arthurs maze!)
