[Intro]
D.A. got that dope!
 
[Chorus: Travis Scott]
Ice water, turned Atlantic (Freeze)
Nightcrawlin' in the Phantom (Skrrt, Skrrt)
Told them hoes that don't you panic
Took an island, (Yeah) flood the mansion (Big water)
Dropped the roof, more expansion
Drive a coupe you can stand in (It's lit)
See the bitches undercover (In the sheets)
I'm an ass and titty lover (Big ass)
Guess we all made for each other
Now that all the dawgs free (Yeah, yeah)
And we out in these streets (Alright)
Can you do it, can you pop it for me?

When I got a mil', got me the chills, don't know what happened (Hoo, chills)
Pop pills, do what you feel, I'm on that zombie (Hey, hoo)

[Verse 2: Kodak Black]
In a Hellcat 'cause I'm a hell-raiser
Self-made, I don't owe a nigga nann favor
When you get that money, nigga, keep your heart
I'm slidin' in a coupe, ain't got no key to start
I got the fire on me in BET Awards
When your well run dry, you know you need me for it
When I pull up in the Buick, you know what I'm doin'
If the police get behind me, I'm fleein' and eludin'
Sleepin' on the palette turned me to a savage
I'm a project baby, now I stay in Calabasas
Like I still serve fiends, like I'm still jackin'
I be sippin' on lean, tryna keep balance
Hit that Z-Walk, Dickie's with my Reeboks
I don't say much, I just let the heat talk
Your jewelry water whip, diamonds like re-rock
My lil' baby ride the dick like a seatlock
When I stepped up on the scene, I was on a bean
When I jumped up out the Beam', I was in Celine
Baby girl, you just a fling, that ain't what I mean
Money bustin' out my jeans like I do the scheme
 
[Refrain: Kodak Black]
Pull up in a Demon, on God (On God)
Lookin' like I still do fraud (Fraud)
Flyin' private jet with the rod (Rod)
This that Z shit, this that Z shit (This that Z shit)
Pull up in a Demon, on God (On God)
Lookin' like I still do fraud (Fraud)
Flyin' private jet with the rod (Rod)
This that Z shit, this that Z shit (This that Z shit)

Giant

[Verse 1: Rag’n’Bone Man]
I understood loneliness
Before I knew what it was
I saw the pills on the table
For your unrequited love
I would be nothing
Without you holding me up
Now strong enough for both of us
Both of us, both of us, both of us
 
[Chorus: Rag’n’Bone Man]
I am a giant (Ooh)
Stand up on my shoulders, tell me what you see
'Cause I am a giant (Ooh)
We'll be breaking boulders, underneath our feet
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am a giant (Oh)
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am a giant (Oh)
 
[Verse 2: Rag’n’Bone Man]
Don't hide your emotions
You can throw down your guard
And freed from the notion
We can be who we are
You taught me something, yeah
That freedom is ours
It was you who taught me living is
Togetherness, togetherness, togetherness
 
[Chorus: Rag’n’Bone Man]
I am a giant (Ooh)
Stand up on my shoulders, tell me what you see
'Cause I am a giant (Ooh)
We'll be breaking boulders, underneath our feet
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am a giant (Oh)
I am, I am, I am, I am, I am, I am a giant (Oh)
 
[Bridge: Rag’n’Bone Man]

In the twilight

Now you must remember when
There was a time
When I was on the inside
I was looking out
Living only to defend
All that was mine
I had nothing and no one could touch me
And you know that
 
If it hadn't been for you
If it wasn't for your touch
For giving me the hope
I needed so much
Now I look into your eyes
And I see that you're afraid
You're living in a world
That you have made
That you have made
 
Feel the strength
In the twilight
Break the chain
That binds your heart to the dead of night
Come feel the hope
In the twilight
Let it take your soul
And we'll go on forever and ever
 
Here in the circle of my arms
You must return
I know you're on the inside
Can you find your way back?
Where no one can bring harm
Your bridges shall burn
And the only direction to turn
Is to the morning
 
When the shadows fall hard
And you've played your last card
Like a shot in the dark
We'll find that star
We're gonna find that star
 
Feel the strength
In the twilight
Break the chain
That binds your heart to the dead of night
Come feel the hope
In the twilight
Let it take your soul
And we'll go on forever and ever
 
The world you've made
Look at this world you've made
If it was yours to say
Where would you be today
 
Feel the strength
In the twilight
[?]
'Cause our love is strong
And we'll go on forever and ever
 
Feel the strength
In the twilight
Break the chain
That binds your heart to the dead of night
Feel the hope
In the twilight
Let it take your soul
And we'll go on forever and ever
 
Feel the strength
In the twilight
Break the chain
That binds your heart to the dead of night
Feel the hope
In the twilight
Let it take your soul
And we'll go on forever and ever

Don't Blink

I turned on the evening news
Saw a old man being interviewed
Turning a hundred and two today
Asked him what's the secret to life
He looked up from his old pipe
Laughed and said, 'All I can say is
 
Don't blink
Just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high-school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
So don't blink.'
 
Well I was glued to my TV
When it looked like he looked at me
And said, 'Best start putting first things first
'Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can't flip it over and start again
Take every breath God gives you for what it's worth
 
Don't blink
'Cause just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high-school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
So don't blink.'
 
So I've been tryna slow it down
I've been tryna take it in
In this here-today-gone-tomorrow world we're livin' in
 
Don't blink
Just like that
You're six years old and you take a nap
And you wake up and you're twenty-five
And your high-school sweetheart becomes your wife
Don't blink
You just might miss
Your babies growing like mine did
Turning into moms and dads
Next thing you know
Your better half of fifty years is there in bed
And you're praying God takes you instead
Trust me friend
A hundred years goes faster than you think
So don't blink
 
No, don't blink
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
So don't blink
Life goes faster than you think
Don't blink
Don't blink
Life goes faster than you think

Hold me like you do
Hold me like you do
Make me high
I can’t deny
I’m in love with you
I’m in love with you
(I’m in love with you)
 
[Chorus]
Babe, I’ll take you closer, for sure
Babe, babe, babe, I’ll take you closer now, closer, closer
Babe, I’ll take you closer, for sure
Babe, babe, babe, I’ll take you closer now, closer, closer
Babe, I’ll take you closer, for sure
Babe, babe, babe, I’ll take you closer now, closer, closer
Babe, I’ll take you closer, for sure
Babe, babe, babe, I’ll take you closer now, closer, closer
 

Without You

[Intro]
Without your love
Love, love
 
[Verse 1]
When the night gets colder
Just make it right and keep me warm
Will you love me tomorrow? (tomorrow)
Don’t say goodbye, don’t leave me alone
 
[Pre-Chorus]
So baby pull me closer
Just take your chance before it’s gone
Only you make me wanna
Stay and sing this song
 
[Chorus]
I can’t breathe without your love
Without you
You give me something new
I can’t live without your love
Without you
You give me something new
Without you
 
[Verse 2]
When the party is over
Just stay the night, don’t take me home
Will you call when we're sober? (sober)
You’re on my mind, you already know
 
[Pre-Chorus]
So baby pull me closer
Just take your chance before it’s gone
Only you make me wanna
Stay and sing this song
 
[Chorus]
I can’t breathe without your love
Without you
You give me something new
I can’t live without your love
Without you
You give me something new
Without you
You give me something
You give me something

Without you
Without your love
Without you
I can’t live
Without you
Without your love
Without you
 
[Outro]
Without you
You give me something
Give me something new
Without your love
Without you
Give me something new
Without your love
Without you
 

Ecstasy

[Verse 1]
I love you in L.A
I don’t know how you did it
You stole my heart that night
You know just what to say
To make me weak in my knees
But I’ll be fine
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah I’m growing, growing up with you
We’re rolling, rolling down the hill
And I’m falling, falling hard for you
Baby, you're my ecstasy
 
[Chorus]
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby (hey, hey)
These drugs, they ain’t enough (hey, hey)
They ain’t, baby (hey, hey)
 
[Verse 2]
I hate you in L.A
I took too many drinks
You'll never see me cry
I'm gonna walk away
You got me poppin’ these pills
But I’ll be fine
 
[Pre-Chorus]
Yeah I’m growing, growing up with you
We’re rolling, rolling down the hill
And I’m falling, falling hard for you
Baby, you're my ecstasy
 
[Chorus]
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby (hey, hey)
These drugs, they ain’t enough (hey, hey)
They ain’t, baby (hey, hey, hey)
 
[Bridge]
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby
Only you can give me feels
These drugs, they ain’t enough
These drugs, they ain’t enough
They ain’t, baby
 
[Outro]
Ecstasy, ecstasy (ecstasy)
You're my ecstasy
Ecstasy, ecstasy (ecstasy)
You're my ecstasy
 

In This Place

What can it be that calls me to this place today?
This lawless car ballet, what can it be?
Am I a baby pigeon sprouting wings to soar?
Was that a metaphor for something more?
 
Now I'm flying, my spirit's climbing
As I'm called through this fog of maze (ooh-ah)
My body, my spirit aligning
In this, in this place called Slaughter Race
Slaughter Race
 
What would you say if it turns out, oh, that I stay?
Would it be okay, here in this place?
'Cause you know that I love these fallen wires
Dumpster fires, burning tires
Everything that I desire
Everything that I desire
 
Now I'm flying, my spirit's climbing
As I'm called through this fog of maze (ooh-ah)
My body, my spirit aligning
In this, in this place called Slaughter Race
Slaughter Race
 
I know I should go but
I really don't want to yet
I really don't want to yet
Oh, I know I should go but
I really don't want to yet
I really don't want to yet
 
There's nothing like Slaughter Race
Slaughter Race
It's only here in Slaughter Race
Only here in Slaughter Race
Only here in Slaughter Race
It's only here in Slaughter Race, yeah
 

Mein Diamant

Es kann keiner sehen, kaum einer verstehen
Es blutet so sehr und nichts wiegt so schwer
Es spricht eine Sprache, totenstill, die jeder versteht
Vergisst keinen Schmerz
Bestraft mich mit Liebe die nicht mir vergeht
 
Ich lass dir mein Herz hier
Ich kann's nicht mehr tragen
Es ist so schwer
mein Diamant
So nimm doch den Schmerz mir
Was soll ich noch sagen
Ich kann nicht mehr
Hältst du es sanft
In deiner Hand?
 
Es verbrennt vor Sehnsucht in mir
Befreit von Rachsucht und Gier
Und es schlägt hart und fast springt es aus
meiner Brust
Es ist schwarz wie die Nacht und blutrot wie die Lust
 
Ich lass dir mein Herz hier
Ich kann's nicht mehr tragen
Es ist so schwer
mein Diamant
So nimm doch den Schmerz mir
Was soll ich noch sagen
Ich kann nicht mehr
Hältst du es sanft
In deiner Hand?
 
Mein Diamant
So schwer, mein Diamant
Bleib mit mir am Leben solange ich kann
 
Ich lass dir mein Herz hier
Ich kann's nicht mehr tragen
Es ist so schwer, mein Diamant
So nimm doch den Schmerz mir
Was soll ich noch sagen
Ich kann nicht mehr
Ich will nicht leer
 
Ich lass dir mein Herz hier
Ich kann's nicht mehr tragen
Es ist so schwer, mein Diamant
So nimm doch den Schmerz mir
Was soll ich noch sagen
Ich kann nicht mehr
Hältst du es sanft
In deiner Hand
 

Herr der Berge

Stürme, immer wieder Stürme,
Überall zerbirst das Holz,
Blitze, immer wieder Blitze,
Donner fegen durch das Tal,
Felsen, immer wieder Felsen,
Lösen sich aus steiler Wand,
Schreie, immer wieder Schreie
Rübezahl besucht das Land
 
Über so viele Jahre wurde er nicht gesehen,
Er ist der Herr der Berge, wild und verwöhnt
 
Menschen, viele, viele Menschen,
Einige trifft seine Wut
Zauber, tiefer, tiefer Zauber
Sich verwandeln tut ihm gut
 
Über so viele Jahre wurde er nicht gesehen
Er ist der Herr der Berge, wild und verwöhnt (x3)
 
Erde, tief in dieser Erde
Geisterfahrt zum Mittelpunkt
Heimat, das ist seine Heimat,
Das macht unser Leben bunt.
 
Stürme, Stürme, Blitze, Blitze,
Felsen, Felsen, Schreie, Schreie
 

Maiennacht

Als das Feuer angefacht in der ersten Maiennacht,

  • 1. Sprache unbekannt

Schön, schön, schön

Du siehst betörend aus und wieder wie geleckt
So eingepellt in Lack und Leder
Die spitzen Schuhe hast du lange schon versteckt
Ich kratz und kitzle mit der Feder
 
Der Geist, so flüchtig aber nicht dein alter Duft
Gefangen, wo die Lippen blühen
Ergründe niemals alle Ecken deiner Gruft
Ich kann mich also noch so sehr bemühen
 
[Refrain:]
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
Ich hab dich nicht verdient
Ich hab dich nicht verdient
Nicht verdient
 
Wenn ich dir näher kam, kam ich nie nah genug
Ich sondre Schleim ab bis ich triefe
Ich war dir viel zu zahm, und war es Selbstbetrug?
Denn niemals drang ich in die Tiefe
 
Noch immer winsle ich und wedle mit dem Schwanz
Doch stetig schickst du deine Wächter
Die schmücken sich mit aufgesetzter Toleranz
Und sind doch nimmer etwas echter
 
[Refrain:]
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
Ich hab dich nicht verdient
Ich hab dich nicht verdient
Nicht verhaßt
 
Hast du dich vielleicht ein bißchen zu sehr eingeschnürt?
Willst du noch Hilfe oder bist du längst verloren?
Hast mich herzlich oft an deiner Leine vorgeführt
Drum lass ich dich auch gern im eignen Saft verschmoren
 
Und doch: Ich schnitte dich behutsam aus deinem Korsett
Kochtest du dich nicht selbst in deinem eignen Süppchen
Ach, wenn ich doch ein gut gewetztes, scharfes Messer hätt'
Ich helf' doch gern und wo ich kann, mein kleines Püppchen
 
Wenn du mich brauchst, dann bin ich buchstäblich schon da
Du bist das G, Punkt
Ich bin SP, Komma A.
 
Nur mit der Maske fühlst du dich ganz unmaskiert
Und der Gesichter hast du viele
Die meisten find ich schön, doch wär ich bald kastriert
Blieb ich bei dir und spielte Spiele
 
[Refrain x 2:]
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
Schön, schön, schön
Ich weiß, ich hab dich nicht verdient
 
Nicht verdient
Nicht verdient
Nicht verdient
 

Marina

[Refrain]
Marina, Marina, Marina, mit Dir wird die Liebe erst schön.
Marina, Marina, Marina, ich lasse Dich nie wieder gehen.
Wunderbares Mädchen, willst Du mit mir leben?
Mein Herz macht dir soeben ein Sonderangebot.
Wunderbares Mädchen, glaub mir ich bin ehrlich,
Du bist mir unentbehrlich wie Wasser, Milch und Brot.
 
Bei Tag und Nacht denk ich an Dich Marina,
so ein Gefühl das war bei mir noch nie da.
Ich weiß genau, das geht nie mehr vorüber.
Ich weiß genau Du bist die richtige Frau.
 
[Refrain]
 
Mein Herz ist krank und gar nicht zu beneiden,
Du lässt es jeden Tag aus Liebe leiden.
Das wäre sicher heut schon zu vermeiden,
wenn Du nur sagst: Ich bin für immer Dein.
 
[Refrain]
 

Dämon

Der Rauch verdunkelt die Sterne
Er schleicht und verwandelt die Nacht
Er hat so viele Menschen schon umgebracht
Zu spät ist jedes Verlangen
Die Zeit noch mal zurückzudreh'n
Es bleibt nur tragisch dem Tod ins Auge zu seh'n
 
Hätt' ich nur einmal mit Verstand auf dieses, mein Leben geseh'n
Ich fühlte mich jetzt nicht so verlor'n
 
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ihr löscht mein Leben
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ich wollt' noch weitergehen
 
Der Geist verwaltet das Grauen
Und wird zum brennenden Flur
Verzweiflung steht in den Augen aller Menschen nur
Mein Leben rauscht noch vorüber
Mit allem Leid und auch Heiterkeit
Ich seh' die Kinder noch tanzen, doch es ist soweit
 
Hätt' ich nur einmal mit Verstand auf dieses, mein Leben geseh'n
Ich fühlte mich jetzt nicht so verlor'n
 
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ihr löscht mein Leben
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ich wollt' noch weitergehen
 
Halt mich fest (Halt' mich fest)
Halt mich fest (Halt' mich fest)
Halt mich fest
Bitte enger (Halt' mich fest)
Bitte enger (Halt' mich fest)
Bitte noch enger (Halt' mich fest)
Bitte noch enger (Halt' mich fest)
Bitte noch enger (Halt' mich fest)
Ich wollt' noch weiter
 
Hätt' ich nur einmal mit Verstand auf dieses, mein Leben geseh'n
Ich fühlte mich jetzt nicht so verlor'n
 
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ihr löscht mein Leben
Deus, dei, Dämon
Ich wollt' noch weitergehen
 
Ich wollt' noch weiter
 

DENK AN DIE KINDER Alligatoah

DENK AN DIE KINDER
Alligatoah
[Part 1]
Schaut nicht weg, wenn das Elend plagt
Seit Neustem mach' ich wieder Urlaub in Dänemark
Den Tränen nah, ich fahr' wieder ein' hässlichen Gebrauchtwagen
Ich dachte, man wächst mit seinen Ausgaben
Doch, wenn uns mal die Trends überholen
Ist Existenz bedroht bei uns prominenten Personen
Will mich ausnahmsweise wieder eine Sendung promoten
Muss ich Känguru-Hoden fressen trotz schändlicher Quoten (Bah!)
Und so stopf ich meinen Riesenkamin
Mit unverkauften Exemplaren meiner Biographie
Dem letzten Paparazzi hab' ich ins Gesicht gepuncht
Der knippst den Strand, wo ich lag, doch hat mich nicht erkannt
Zeit, dass ich mal wieder in die V.I.P.-Logen darf
Außerdem muss ich die Raten für mein Speedboot bezahlen
Also muss ich möglichst viele Likes generieren
Ohne Zeit zu verlieren, und ich weiß auch schon wie
Denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada
Los, denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada
Los, denk an die Kinder, denken tut nicht weh
Denk an die Kinder, spende ein 'Oje'
Denk an die Kinder, endlich auf CD
Los, denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada
 
Wir Stars habens schwer, denn alle warten
Dass wir etwas falsches sagen - Hashtag Galgenraten
Ja okay, ich versteh, dass mich kein Fernsehmoderator mag
Seit meinem Selfie von der Nashornjagd
Doch warum ernte ich schärfste Kritik
Als Monsanto Werbegesicht?
Vielleicht, weil es nach jedem meiner Trinkgelage Imageschaden gab
Als würde man ein' Pimmel krakeln auf Da Vincis Abendmahl
Ich bekam für meinen letzten Hit in der Hackfresse
Meiner Frau kein Applaus von der Klatschpresse
Klar, dass mich die Leute nicht mehr lieben
Denn ich war unter Alkohol am Steuer hinterziehen
Wurde inhaftiert, wegen Ringelpietz
Mit einem Tinderteen, aber ich grinse fies
Denn ich gewinne wieder eure Sympathie
Mit einer Masche, die immer zieht
Denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada
Los, denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada
Los, denk an die Kinder, denken tut nicht weh
Denk an die Kinder, spende ein 'Oje'
Denk an die Kinder, endlich auf CD
Los, denk an die Kin-dadada, dadada

Constantinople

Across the western world
The fights are going down
The gypsy armies of the evening
Have lit their fires across
The nether side of town
They will not pass this way again
So here in the night
Leave your home it's time for running
Out of the light
 
I see the hosts of Mohammed coming
The Holy Sister bars her doors against the East
Her house has stood too long divided
The uninvited guests are breaking up the feast
She may not bid them leave again
So here in the night
Leave your home it's time for running
Out of the light
 
I see the hosts of Mohammed coming
I dreamed I stood like this before
And I'm sure the words that I heard then
Were much the same
It's just an old Greek tragedy they're acting here
Held over by popular acclaim
So here in the night
Leave your home it's time for running
Out of the light
I see the hosts of Mohammed coming
 

Wall of Berlin

[Verse 1]
Where am I?
In a universe of paradoxical design
Reality of merely in the mind
In my head or in some German town
She said 'you want a four leaf clover
In the round?'
Ain't superstitious
And eye don't believe in luck
But eye heard the thunder
Before the lightning struck
Couldn't read the writing
Because it was so small
But according to the document she got on the wall
 
[Chorus]
She gets down like the wall of Berlin
I come round about a quarter to ten
We just met or at least we pretend
It's so fresh knocking down
The wall of Berlin
 
[Verse 2]
Where am I?
A galaxy of monumental delight
Or parallel hologram copyright
The call comes unexpected
Like a mugger in a park
And the sound of the train interrupts
Is that the queen of Sheba
Or an alien dream?
The marks on the table say
Somewhere in between
Not one for rituals
But one thing eye have found
Everything's better when you come around
 
[Chorus]

Radio Baghdad

Suffer not Your neighbor's affliction
Suffer not Your neighbor's paralysis
But extend your hand Extend your hand
Lest you vanish in the city And be but a trace
Just a vanished ghost And your legacy
All the things you knew Science, mathematics, thought
Severely weakened Like irrigation systems
In the tired veins forming From the Tigris and Euphrates
In the realm of peace All the world revolved
All the world revolved Around a perfect circle
City of Baghdad City of scholars
Empirical humble Center of the world
City in ashes City of Baghdad
City of Baghdad Abrasive aloof
 
Oh, in Mesopotamia Aloofness ran deep
Deep in the veins of the great rivers
That form the base Of Eden
And the tree The tree of knowledge
Held up its arms To the sky
All the branches of knowledge All the branches of knowledge
Cradling Cradling
Civilization In the realm of peace
All the world revolved Around a perfect circle
Oh Baghdad Center of the world
City of ashes With its great mosques
Erupting from the mouth of god Rising from the ashes like
A speckled bird Splayed against the mosaic sky
Oh, clouds around We created the zero
But we mean nothing to you You would believe
That we are just some mystical tale We are just a swollen belly
That gave birth to Sinbad, Scheherazade We gave birth
Oh, oh, to the zero The perfect number
We invented the zero And we mean nothing to you
Our children run through the streets
And you sent your flames Your shooting stars
Shock and awe Shock and awe
Like some, some Imagined warrior production
Twenty-first century No chivalry involved
No Bushido
 
Oh, the code of the West Long gone
Never been Where does it lie?
You came, you came Through the west
Annihilated a people And you come to us
But we are older than you You come you wanna
You wanna come and rob the cradle
Of civilization And you read yet you read
You read Genesis You read of the tree
You read of the tree Beget by god
That raised its branches into the sky Every branch of knowledge
Of the cradle of civilization
 
Of the banks of the Tigris and the Euphrates
Oh, in Mesopotamia Aloofness ran deep
The face of Eve turning What sky did she see
What garden beneath her feet The one you drill
You drill Pulling the blood of the earth
Little droplets of oil for bracelets Little jewels
Sapphires You make bracelets
Round your own world We are weeping tears
Rubies We offer them to you
We are just Your Arabian nightmare
We invented the zero But we mean nothing to you
Your Arabian nightmare
 
City of stars City of scholarship
Science City of ideas
City of light City
City of ashes That the great Caliph
Walked through His naked feet formed a circle
And they built a city A perfect city of Baghdad
In the realm of peace And all the world revolved
And they invented And they mean nothing to you
Nothing to you Nothing
 
Go to sleep Go to sleep my child
Go to sleep And I'll sing you a lullaby
A lullaby for our city A lullaby of Baghdad
Go to sleep Sleep my child
Sleep Sleep...
Run Run...
 
You sent your lights Your bombs
You sent them down on our city Shock and awe
Like some crazy t.v. show
 
They're robbing the cradle of civilization
They're robbing the cradle of civilization
They're robbing the cradle of civilization
 
Suffer not The paralysis of your neighbor
Suffer not But extend your hand
 

Girl from Athens

So this girl from Athens, slides into the bar
If only she knew that she'd take it this far
Like a leaf without a tree she lost her roots
Tell me where they ignore you
In your world of fiction
You'll meet fact rolling like a train so thanks for the chat
Thanks for the chat
 
Chorus
We all do what we do, just to get by
We all see what we see, not to ask why
We will look the other way, when you walk by
So don't ask us tomorrow, who did the crime?
 
So this girl from Athens claims she's the one
That told all the big guns to go where she's from
Come down off your thrown before we knock you down
In a pool of lies you're gonna drown, you're gonna drown
 
So this girl from Athens walks in here
She knows she's all that minus her fears
Bringing me down seems to be her game
She knows now who is to blame
For all the rejections that she will face
Maybe one day she can stand in my place, stand in my place
 

Athens County

Way down in Athens County, that's where I am
I'm goin' on the road tomorrow, up to Amsterdam
Way down in Athens County, we stop and have some wine
Athens County, Maria and me, we're doin' fine
 
Sweet Maria, never long gone
Sweet Maria, never long gone, never long gone
I just got into this town, I'm feeling mighty good
I found my good friend sound, I had a hunch I would
Way down in Athens County, that's where I am
I'm goin' on the road tomorrow, up to Amsterdam
Way down in Athens County, we stop and have some wine
Athens County, Maria and me, we're doin' fine
 
Sweet Maria, never long gone
Sweet Maria, never long gone, never long gone
 
That's my good friend John, he's whistlin' a bluegrass tune
He'd pick it in the sunshine, sing it in the afternoon
Way down in Athens County, that's where I am
I'm goin' on the road tomorrow, up to Amsterdam
Way down in Athens County, we stop and have some wine
Athens County, Maria and me, we're doin' fine
 
Sweet Maria, never long gone
Sweet Maria, never long gone
Well, hello, Maria
Sweet Maria, never long gone
So long, Sweet Maria, never long gone
Hello, Maria
Sweet Maria, never long gone
Oh no
 

Detroit, Michigan

Talkin’ ‘bout soul, soul, soul
Hey Memphis
Talkin’ ‘bout rock n roll
Hey Texas
New York City’s uptown grooves
A little Mississippi Delta blues
Flossin’ Austin and the Boston Pops
And everybody knows that Cleveland rocks
 
Talkin’ ‘bout girls, girls, girls
California
Talkin’ ‘bout fine, fine girls
Oklahoma
A downtown Nashville honky-tonk
Some big fat back beat DC funk
Jacksonville and the Southern rock
In New Orleans the party never stops
 
Detroit, Michigan
 
Ya heard about Marvin Gaye, we got him
Can I get a witness?
Talkin’ bout Hitsville USA we got it
How sweet it is
We got those fine, fine super Supremes
The kind of girls ya see in your dreams
When ya hear our thunderin’ sound
Ya know it comes from Detroit town
 
Talkin’ ‘bout Rosa Parks we sent her
Talkin’ ‘bout Henry Ford the inventor
Talkin’ ‘bout Aretha yeah we got her
The Queen of Soul
Bob Seger yeah we got him
And that old time rock n roll
Slim Shady set the world on fire
The Big Three baby and the finest cars
George Clinton’s P Funk all stars
We spend our days on the line and our nights in the bars
 
Detroit, Michigan
 

Don't belong in Hollywood

[Verse 1]
Hello, my beautiful friend
Did you get the money that your mother sent?
Your pictures don't make sense
Are you happy or do you just pretend?
You live in a town made by movie stars and educated hearts
Might sound like Amy Winehouse singing in your car
Do you wanna play that part?
Wear a dress your record label bought you
Fall in love with some Californian boy
 
[Chorus]
Fool me did you think you could
You don't belong in Hollywood, no no
 
[Verse 2]
Hey kids, look at my face
I'm sick and tired of being somebody that you hate
Gee whiz, pack all my bags
I'll buy a first class seat direct to LAX
No boy, I'll be an music star
I'll buy a Jaguar
And every joke I tell the audience will laugh
Beverley boulevard
One day we'll be standing there face to face
But you won't see the tears beneath my Prada shades
 
[Chorus]
Fool you all I thought I could
I don't belong in Hollywood, no no
 
[Verse 3]
Say what you wanna say
How people change and there's no point reminiscing
It's three AM and I'm still awake
I keep thinking babe, my phone's vibrating
 
[Chorus]
Fool me did you think you could
Come back to America
I should've loved you when I could
Oh, we're hopelessly misunderstood
We don't belong in Hollywood
No, we don't belong in Hollywood, no no
