The band began as a project between Ulf, and Jo in Oslo, Norway in winter 2000/2001. Beginning as an instrumental and sampled vocal project, they were signed for a track on a compilation by Beatservice Records in winter 2001. On hearing the finished track, label manager Vidar Hanssen signed the unnamed band for a full album.

During early summer 2001, Ulf and Jo recorded most of the album and Anja improvised the vocals. After their vocals, Jo layered the guitars, but it would be a year before the album would be completed and released.

In spring 2002, the band was known as Flunk and they released their first single, a cover of New Order's Blue Monday in April. The track was well received in the UK and was included on numerous compilations in North America and Europe. Later in April, their debut album For Sleepyheads Only was released which garnered great reviews in Norway. With the success of their album, BBC invited them to do a recording session for the Radio 1 show The Blue Room in London. Shortly after Notting Hill Art's Club would become the location to their live debut. In the United States, they became signed to Guidance Recordings.

By summer 2002, raving reviews were being returned by British electronica magazines and in July they played Norway's finest rock festival. In October For Sleepyheads Only was released in the US through Guidance Recordings. By November they played the London Jazz Festival.

Throughout 2003 their debut, For Sleepyheads Only was still being echoed across the globe in staggered releases with special editions released to Russia and Greece. Beatservice Records then went on to release Treat Me Like You Do - For Sleepyheads Only Remixed in June. While their debut continued to make its way around, the band wasted no time and began work on their second album for the majority of the year, which was recorded in Paris in October.

Their sophomore album, Morning Star was finished in March 2004 and saw a Norwegian release in May while the rest of the world received it in June. In 2005, Play America was released on Beatservice Records which included bonus tracks from the US version of Morning Star along with remixes.

I Love Music

(sample)
Music... Music...

Ever since I can remember,
I've always loved music.
You know
I didn't know anything about these titles
Until I started dealing with people like you - the media

And they started givin' it names...
Rock and Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Jazz

There's only two kinds of music
Good and bad

I love music
Music
I love music
I love music
Music
I love music
I love music
Music
I love music
I love music
I love music... music

Blue monday

( New Order )

Treat me like you do
Treat me like you do
Treat me like you do
Treat me like you do

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

How does it feel
To treat me like you do
When you've laid your hands upon me
And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard your words
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how do I feel

Those who came before me
Lived through their vocations
From the past until completion
They'll turn away no more

And I still find it so hard
To say what I need to say
But I'm quite sure that you'll tell me
Just how I should feel today

I see a ship in the harbor
I can and shall obey
But if it wasn't for your misfortune
I'd be a heavenly person today

And I thought I was mistaken
And I thought I heard you speak
Tell me how do I feel
Tell me now how should I feel

Treat me like you do

Miss World

This time
I know it's gonna be for real
This time
I know it's gonna be for real

Full stand still
I miss the chemistry of your kiss

This time
I know it's gonna be for real
Full stand still

This time
I know it's gonna be for real
Full stand still
I miss the chemistry of your kiss

This time
I know it's gonna be for real

Full stand still
Alone
And it's for real

Oh full stand still
Alone
And it's for real

I feel so totally happy, and it's all so real
I could surf the earth on a banana peel
I'm so totally into this
The chemistry of your kiss

The way you lose yourself at night
The way you look in the morning light
You're so pretty
Makes me wanna burn this city down

I walk the streets with a frown
The size of a playground merry-go-round
This time (this time)
I know it's gonna be for real

You are Miss World
I miss
The chemistry of your kiss

Full stand still
Alone
And it's for real

Ah full stand still
This time
I know it's gonna be for real

Full stand still
Alone
And it's for real

I feel so totally happy, and it's all so real
I could surf the earth on a banana peel
I'm so totally into this
The chemistry of your kiss

The way you lose yourself at night
The way you look in the morning light
You're so pretty
Makes me wanna burn this city down

I walk the streets with a frown
The size of a playground merry-go-round
This time (this time)
I know it's gonna be for real

You are Miss World
I miss
The chemistry of your kiss
Alone...
The chemistry of your kiss

You are Miss World
I miss
The chemistry of your kiss

Magic Potion

One drop in the ocean
Could be that magic potion
One love, two hearts
You've got to tear your doubt apart

I just couldn't fake an emotion
Faking is poison, my love
This is the one shot
The magic potion
The magic potion

The magic potion...

Your Koolest Smile

Your koolest smile

Sunday People (Don't Bang The Drum)

( The Waterboys' cover of "Don't Bang The Drum" )

Here we are in a special place
What are you gonna do here
Now we stand in a special place
What will you do here
What show of soul are we gonna get from you
It could be deliverance, history
Under these skies so blue
And if I know you you'll bang the drum
Like monkeys do

Here we are in a fabulous place
What are you gonna dream here
We are standing in this fabulous place
What will you play here
I know you love the high life, you love to leap around
You love to beat your chest and make your sound
But not here man, this is sacred ground
With a Power flowing through
And if know you you'll bang the drum
Like monkeys do

Not to pass on by
Not to walk on by
Not to try
Just to let it come
Don't bang the drum
Just let it come
Don't bang the drum

On My Balcony

Here comes summer
Beaming in through my bedroom window
There's a song on the radio
You used to hum back then

Here comes summer
Still feels fresh as morning air
Today I'll just stay here
And do, well, whatever

I'll do whatever
Please, make summer last forever

All I wanna do
Is sit here on my balcony
And think about you and me
And how happy we could be

All I wanna do
Is sit here on my balcony
And think about you and me
And how happy we could be

Here comes summer
Picking flowers in the early hours
Without a care in the world
Except perhaps for bees and birds

Here comes summer
I guess I'll stick to my master plan
Stay away from sea and sand
And do, well, whatever

I'll do whatever
Please, make summer last forever

All I wanna do
Is sit here on my balcony
And think about you and me
And how happy we could be

All I wanna do
Is sit here on my balcony
And think about you and me
And how happy we could be

All I wanna do
Think about you
All I wanna do
Think about you..

Spring To Kingdom Come

Sleeping beauty
Where have you been
You should know
I'm counting on you here

Feels like clouds beneath your wings
It is night, you see it as it is
It is dark, have mercy on us all
You should know
I'm counting on you here

His kiss
His kiss
His kiss
His kiss of spring
His kiss of spring
His kiss of spring
His kiss of spring
His kiss...

Let's talk about the weather
And the snow
Falling from the heavens like crystal feather
The power of the powder
The silence screams louder
I feel cold
This is a nation on hold
It's the chill
Without the thrill

I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
Come to my kingdom
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
Come to my kingdom

I manage to get down to the coffee shop
It's the big freeze, I feel like a pork chop
Jesus it's cold, must be a million below
Nowhere to go, and the snow still falling
Everything's gone white
Still nothing looks bright
There's no signs of daylight
Every day is like an eternal night
I'm out of here soon
I might be back in June
It's the chill
Without the thrill
It's the chill

I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
Come to my kingdom

His kiss
His kiss
His kiss
His kiss of spring
His kiss of spring
His kiss of spring
Spring
His kiss of spring
His kiss

It's the chill
Without the thrill
It's the chill

I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
You should know
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
I'm counting on you here
His kiss of spring
His kiss
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
His kiss of spring
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
His kiss of spring
It's the chill
Without the thrill
I'm waiting for spring to come to my kingdom
To my kingdom

Do you really exist at all?

It's typical of you
Looking like you do
So typical of you
Love me like you do

You've got it all
Six seven times

Thank you
Y'right

I've been waiting all my life

When I see you
I've been wasting all my time to tell you
Oh, when I meet you
I've been waiting all my life to leave you

But when I'm down again
And I'm all alone
And when my head spins round
And I'm feeling small

And when I'm down again
And I'm all alone
And when my head spins round
And I'm feeling small

Won't you believe me
If I told you that I tried all I could
Would you deceive me
If I chose to leave it all up to you

But when I'm down again
And I'm all alone
And when my head spins round
And I'm feeling small

And when I'm down again
And I'm all alone
And when my head spins round
And I'm feeling small, oh

When I see you
Would I dare to leave it all behind

It could be have and hold
If you'd see
It could be all I'd need
If you'd be here

If you'd be here
If you'd be here, ohh

Blind My Mind

Bring your head against the wall
So I can see where I will fall
Bring your mind into my head
Find your playing den

All in all it's just a start
All we had was more than that
All in all I can't go back
To where we started out

So bring my head up to Mont Blanc
So you will see what you would find
Bring my head against the wall
So you can see where I will go

All in all it's just your fault
Made me feel respect no more
All in all I can't go back
Blind my mind inside

Bring my mind inside your head
So you can see where I went then
Bring your head against the wall
So I can see where I will fall

All in all it's just your fault
Made me feel respect no more
All in all I can't go back
Blind My mind inside
Blind My mind inside

All your lies
Made me feel respect no more
All your lies
Blind My mind inside
All your lies
Made me feel respect no more
All your lies
Made me feel respect no more
All your lies

All your lies
Made me feel respect no more

True Faith

( New Order )

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty

I don't care 'cos I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the thing that costs you too much

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see the light in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

When I was a very small boy
Very small boys talked to me
Now that we've grown up together
They're afraid of what they see

That's the price that we all pay
Value destiny comes to nothing
I can't tell you where we're going
I guess there's just no way of knowing

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see the light in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty

The chances are we've gone too far
You took my time and you took my money
Now I feel you've left me standing
In a world that's so demanding

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see the light in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
That my life would depend on the morning sun

Skysong

( Morning Star US bonus Track )

You know that our love affair is a bit like the rainbow
Unpredictable, still it's one of nature's greatest shows
Soon come fall, it's the best excuse for doing nothing at all
There's people and there's sunshine, it's a perfect day for wasting time

Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars
Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars

You should know the beauty of life, is the beauty of falling in love
Still sometimes the future seems too hard to swallow
And you know there's an ocean of time, starting tomorrow
There's people and there's sunshine, it's a perfect day for wasting time

Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars
Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars

Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars
Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars

Looking at the sky
Looking at the sky

Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars
Looking at the sky
Hearing sound of guitars

Skysong

( Other version )

You know that our love affair is a bit like the rainbow
Unpredictable, still it's one of nature's greatest shows
Soon come fall, it's the best excuse for doing nothing at all
There's people and there's sunshine, it's a perfect day for wasting time

Looking at the sky
Watch another day go by
I'm looking at the sky
Waving another cloud goodbye

You should know the beauty of life, is the beauty of falling I love
Still sometimes the future seems too hard to swallow
You know there's an ocean of time, starting tomorrow
Being with you is like sleeping in cotton wool

Looking at the sky
Watch another day go by
I'm looking at the sky
Waving another cloud goodbye

All My Dreams On Hold

All my dreams on hold
They're glittering like gold
Waiting to unfold

I'm seeking what new kind (?)
Of spirit to untwine
The secrets of my mind

You're in my mind this time
Spirit of my kind
In my mind this time
Forever mine to find

I'm seeking what new kind (?)
And who would think I'd find
A spirit of my mind

You're in my mind this time
Spirit of my mind
In my mind this time
Forever mine to find

Everything Is Ending Here

Everything is ending here

I've been using them for all these years
Every word I try to say
Seem to end in tears

I am sick and tired of words
I've been using them for all these years
Every word I try to say

After all I have no more to say

This one goes out to the one I love
Coming to you, on your personal stereo

I'm coming back to play
But I don't know the rules
And I'm nobody's fool but myself
So if you want it any other way - it's OK

I'm coming back to play
But I don't know the rules
And I don't know the name of this game
So should I stay, or should I walk away

And lately you seem to slip away from my touch
Lately I've been shy and not too eager
Lately I've been tired of eating alone

I'm gonna write you a magic letter
I'm gonna send you all a dream
I'm gonna write you a magic letter
I'm gonna send you all a dream
I'm gonna write you a magic letter
I'm gonna send you all a dream
I'm gonna write you a magic letter
I'm gonna send you all a dream

Lately I've been kind of shy and not too eager
And lately I've slipped away from your touch
Sometimes, Sometimes it seems so easy
Cause someday, I'll lose it all, for some more

I'm gonna write you a magic letter...

All that lot of water
All that lies between
All that heavenly water
All is like a dream

If We Kiss

If we kiss the last hour
Will you stay if we kiss
I sit on a corner
Watching people passing by
I walk in a crowd
Looking for one

Haldi

If our love is all that we have, caught up the sleeve
And if I choose, if I choose, the love that we share, would it be here
Keep coming to me, keep coming to me, I'll set you free
And if our love is to keep, if our love is the key, it's caught up my sleeve
All the love, all is love, so wipe out my heart, if you want to see
And if I call, if I call, would you be the one, the one that I seek
Keep coming to me, keep coming to me, I'll set you free
And if our love is to keep, if our love is the key, it's caught up my sleeve

Or so it's said, that the world of ours all lies in dreams
You got to keep them, out of reach for some
I wouldn't like to be the one, the one that you have hurt
So all appear to be as you see here
One too many, too many choices I have here
You've got to choose from the top of your head
I have one too many, too many reasons to be here
And that's what keeps me, so let it be
There are so many people and so much fuzz around us
They keep crashing, into a situation
And so they say, that the world of ours all lies in dreams
We got to keep them, real

Sit Down

I'm still at the front
But I don't, I don't fight
I'm gonna sit down tonight
I'm not buying in
But I can't - pull out
I'm just gonna sit down tonight

Listen to the silence in between
It's louder than the bombs that come screaming in
Listen to the silence in between
It's louder than the bombs that come screaming in
I'm gonna sit down tonight

I'm still in my trench
Cause I keep, the defence
I'm gonna sit down tonight
I'm not buying in
But I can't - pull out
I'm just gonna sit down tonight

Listen to the silence in between
It's louder than the bombs that come screaming in
Listen to the silence in between
It's louder than the bombs that come screaming in
Listen to the silence
I'm gonna sit down tonight

We're still at the front
But we don't, we don't fight
We're gonna sit down tonight
We're not buying in
But we can't pull out
We're just gonna sit down tonight

See you

( Martin Gore - Depeche Mode cover )

All I want to do is see you again
Is that too much to ask for
I just want to see your sweet smile
Smiled the way it was before
Well I'll try not to hold you
And I'll try not to kiss you
And I won't even touch you

All I want to do is see you
Don't you know that it's true
I remember the days when we walked through the woods
We'd sit on a bench for a while
I treasure the way we used to laugh and play
And look in each others eyes
You can keep me at a distance if you don't trust my resistance
But I swear I won't touch you

Well I know five years is a long time and that times change
But I think that you'll find people are basically the same

If the water's still flowing we can go for a swim
And do the things we used to do
And if I'm reluctant you can pull me in
We can relive our youth

But we'll just stay friendly like sister and brother
Though I think I still love you

Two Icicles

I'm a weirdo that's why
I secretly comes by
Now two icicles appear
About to love

We're two icicles on a spree
And icicles they are free
And you belong to me
Like icicles belong to the sea

I'm so happy when it rains
We remain, still everything will change
I'm so happy when it rains
We're the same, still everything will change

You could call this love
If you make me feel wanted
Let's call this love
You can write our names
On the tree that you have chosen
You ought to know

Change My Ways

I've got to change my ways
I've got to change my ways
I've got to change my ways
I've got to buy a new dress, and do my hair
My hair is everywhere - these days
I've got to change my ways

I could change my name, and change my number
Change my frame of mind from slumber
I've got to change my ways

I've got to change my ways
I want to change the world
I can't even change this girl
I want to change the world
But I can't even change myself
I've got to change my ways

I've got to change my attitude
I've got to change my diet
I've got to change my quiet moods
I've got to change that hi hat
I've got to change that ringtone on my phone
I've got to change my habits
I've got to go to Rome in the fall
Before I've had it

Keep On

Come on and make a wish
I don't want to know
I want to see this love
You might as well let go
I want to feel like this
There's something in your eyes
Might be my twisted mind
I think it's paradise
Come on and make a wish
Before the sun goes up
I want to see this love
We might as well let go

You said my life would leave my heart in a deadly spin
So why don't you come on, baby

Come on and catch my kiss
It's flying low
I want to see this love
We might as well let go

Diet Of Water and Love

( The Valium Poets )

When you are here
With me
With valium poets all ears
Floating on clouds
We wait
For whatever comes around

It's so perfectly quiet and I'm
And I'm gonna stay
On a diet of water and love
While life goes on

This Is What You Get

Common Sense

Today I lost my common sense
It slipped away on the corner of Pike and 10th
I guess it happened on purpose
Because lately it's been getting quite intense

Today I wandered round the bend
I took the trip with a friend shopping round for friends
Had no particular purpose
Just picking up the pieces and pretend it all makes sense

You blow my mind
And I'll blow yours
I've seen the force of your pretty smile
Baby, do it one more time

Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time

Today I lost my sense of pride
Hiding out somewhere it wasn't supposed to hide
It might be gone for a while
Like music that suddenly just goes out of style

Today I lost my sense of time
It disappeared like anything you just can't find
I guess I don't really care
I've been running behind now year after year

You blow my mind
And I'll blow yours
I've seen the force of your pretty smile
Baby, do it one more time

You blow my mind
And I'll blow yours
I've seen the force of your pretty smile
Baby, do it one more time

Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time
Do it one more time

Today I lost my common sense
It slipped away on the corner of Pike and 10th
I guess it happened on purpose
Because lately it's been getting quite intense

Cigarette Burns

One day you're gonna ride ahead of yours
That day you're gonna rise above of the occasion
Hurt - you know it comes like this, it goes like this
Hurt - you know it goes like this, it comes like this

I guess the pills don't work and the drinks don't work
In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns
The summer's daft and winter's long

One day you're gonna ride ahead of yours
That day you're ride ahead of your vocation
Hurt - you know it comes like this, it goes like this
Hurt - you know it goes like this, it comes like this

I guess the pills don't work and the drinks don't work
In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns
The summer's daft and winter's long

I guess the pills don't work and the drinks don't work
In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns
The summer's daft and winter's long

I guess the pills don't work and the drinks don't work
In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns
The summer's daft and winter's long

I guess the pills don't work and the drinks don't work
In the morning it hurts like cigarette burns

Ride

I went to a lonely bar and the word was out, so
You could steal my love I guess I wouldn't mind at all
Looking at the cars and looking at the shadows fall
I would let it be, I could let it all go

Oh oh wanna ride with me
Oh oh wanna ride with
Wanna ride with me

Oh oh wanna ride with me
Oh oh wanna ride with
Wanna ride with me

I went into the car heading for a place I know, to stay
You could steal my love, I guess i wouldn't mind at all
Driving through the night, driving to the place I love
I would let it be, I could let it all go

Oh oh wanna ride with me
Oh oh wanna ride with
Wanna ride with me

Oh oh wanna ride with me
Oh oh wanna ride with
Wanna ride with me

Drive drive drive drive...

Love Hearts

Heaven called
Heaven called
Heaven called
Alone for a while
And I wouldn't say
Wouldn't say
Wouldn't stay all the way

You set it higher
You set it too high
You said it's 'your love'
You set it too high

You can choose your love heart
Embrace it hard
Sleeping on your own
You keep coming back for more, for keeps

Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby
You can only keep it to heart
Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby
You can only keep it too high

Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby
You can only keep it to heart
Kiss your love in a sweet lullaby
You can only keep it to high

Speedskating

Is this the spirit of heart
To let me skating here
Into my death

Is this the doom of my heart
To let me fall down
Here under the ice

One, two, three, four
One, two, three, four

Is this worth fighting for
I like to be about it
This is treacherous ice
Not to be skating on
Not to be playing with

One, two, three, four
One, two, three, I fall
Through the ice
Through the ice
Ice, ice, ice

Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for

[spoken part]

Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for
Is this worth fighting for

[spoken part]

Stain

Nothing to dismay
It's sweet stain
Summers roll by
Summers without shoes on
Lovers in a park
It's sweet stain, stain
Lovers in the lane of love
Running back to back

Shoreline

Always
Always

Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline
Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline

(always)
Two thousand miles we have to walk
Before we reach the shoreline
Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline

Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline
Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline

(always)
Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline
(always)
Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline

Always

Two hundred miles we have to swim
Before we reach the shoreline

Down

I've been running, I've been having fun
But I don't know what it means
I've been trying, I've been dying to
But I don't know what it means

I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means

I rest my case, but I don't wanna run the race
I've been loosing you the way I'm loving you
But I don't know what it means

I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means

I've been trying so hard to come to peace
But I don't know what it means
My shelter is a shield
But I don't know what it means

I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means
I've been down, down, down, down, down
But I don't know what it means

I've been trying so hard to be myself
That I've turned into somebody else
I'm in denial or so it seems
But I don't know what it means

Karma Police

( Radiohead )

Karma police
Arrest this man
He talks in maths
He buzzes like a fridge
He's like a detuned radio

Karma police
Arrest this girl
Her Hitler hairdo
Is making me feel ill
And we have crashed her party

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with us

Karma police
I've given all I can
It's not enough
I've given all I can
But we're still on the payroll

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with us

And for a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself

For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself
For a minute there
I lost myself, I lost myself

This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
This is what you get
When you mess with us

Lost Causes

Queen of the Underground

Queen of the underground
Where you bound
What's the soundbite like

Queen of the underground
Where have you been
I didn't get under your skin

King of the alternative scene
Did you fall in
Did your heyday ricochet

Princess heir of the indie sphere
Do you still care
I didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't go under
Didn't get under your skin

Queen of the underground
Where you bound
What's the soundbite like
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Queen of the underground
Miss Babylon, Amazon, take me in
I didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't go under
Didn't get under your skin

Girl of the underworld
Where did you go
I heard you went with the undertow

I didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't get under your skin
Didn't go under
Didn't get under your skin

Queen of the underground
Where you bound
What's the soundbite like

Girl of the underworld
Where did you go
I heard you went with the undertow

Sanctuary

Snow is falling quietly
Careless of it's destiny
Emptyness will kill me soon
Tonight they'll dance outside my bedroom

Someone's walking happily
Carry all their mystery
Isolation's killing me
Tonight they'll dance for me

Wind is whistling down the street
Drowning sounds of happy feet
Temptation's killing me
Tonight the wind will sing for me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Colors fade into the night
Refugees in neon lights
Darkness is killing me
Later light will shine on me

You'll be standing next to me
Soon you will kiss me
Happiness is killing me
Tonight you will be dancing for me

Tonight you will be dancing for me
Tonight you will be dancing for me
Tonight you will be dancing for me
Tonight you will be dancing for me...

Love And Halogen

This goes on for days on end
Let's spend darkness innocent
Let's just kiss and make amends
Spend it on love and halogen

This goes on for days on end
Let's spend darkness innocent
Let's just kiss and make amends
Spend it on love and halogen

This goes on for days on end
Let's spend darkness innocent
Let's just kiss and make amends
Spend it on love and halogen

Charlie's playing the mandolin
While other people count their sins
When darkness comes to swallow them
Go spend it on love and halogen
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
This will last for days on end
Past forever and back again
Charlie says he's lost his friends
He's back on love and halogen

Halogen, halogen
Halogen, halogen

Charlie's up to something good
Setting fire to the neighbourhood
Let the darkness burn and burn and then
Spend it on love and halogen

Emotional conspiracy
Erase it all from memory
So when we start all over again
We'll spend it on love and halogen

Halogen, halogen
Halogen, halogen...

Let's just kiss and make amends
This will last for days on end
Halogen, halogen...
Let's just kiss and make amends
Halogen, halogen...

Awkward

This is awkward
Open territory
Don't wait til February

I need you to cover time
I need you to cover time
I need you to cover time
For me

Golden brown and shiny cyan
Hello abstinence and denial
Please, don't wait til I die
Come February, I'll be fine
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons

Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Goodbye

This is awkward
Open territory
Don't wait til February

I need you to cover time
I need you to cover time

Golden brown and shiny cyan
Hello abstinence and denial
Please, don't wait til I die
Come February, I'll be fine

Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons

Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Kiss my demons
Goodbye

Lost Causes

We went down with November
Lights out, late December
We missed Santa Claus and all lost causes
Burned out and exhausted
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Now rewind to September
So sweet and tender
Air is gentle and nights still warm
Shelter before the storm

June is almost lost on me
When promises come easy
With nothing to lose, but all lost causes
Summer nights never exhaust us

We went down with November
Lights out, 'til late December
I be shelter for the coming storm
But I won't be the one to take you home
But I won't be the one to take you home

I won't be the one to take you home
I won't be the one to take you home
I won't be the one to take you home
I won't be the one to take you home

Subway (J'aime La Pluie D'été)

I love summer rain
I like to leave on the evening train
I love spring
Makes me fall in love with you again

I like the sound of the sea
When it's only the ocean and me
I love the city when it's half empty
I love you when you are with me
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I love the colors of July
I like October, when it's dry
I love your kisses when I leave
You close your eyes like you don't wanna see

I love the European sun
I like the Sex Pistols 'cause they're fun
I love to dance when I'm drunk, sometimes
I like to dance when I'm drunk

I love summer rain
I like to leave on the evening train
I love spring
Makes me fall in love with you again

I love summer rain
I love summer rain

Primer

Come as you are
Come if you like
Please step inside
But come as you are

Entourage
Escaped in my dreams
Borderland
Helter skelter dreams

Walk to the yard
Skating in my dreams
So, we are
Sheltered in my dreams
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Still on my own
Still I'm afraid
No one has seen
But I've seen my head

Ice in my dreams
Ice in my blood
Borderland
Iron cast

Walk through the yard
Skating in my dreams
So, we are
Sheltered in my dreams

Bummed

I'm bummed for reason
Even the trees are mixing up the seasons
Everything will have to go before they close down the flower show
Only fakes will survive

The scene turning sour by the hour
The slow parade got lost in the crowd
And the ten ton trucks with the carnival lot got stuck in a jam
On the road, out of town
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
I'm bummed for time
And the rain pours down
On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind
On the road, out of town

I'm bummed out now
And I don't know how
The ferris wheel stopped, the power switched off with me on the top
With a stranger, and a view

I'm bummed for time
And the rain pours down
On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind
On the road, out of town

I say, yes, I'm impressed
I'm impressed
But I'm still dressed

I say, yes, I'm impressed
I'm impressed
But I'm still dressed

I'm bummed now
And the rain pours down
On the broken parts and disjointed hearts all left behind
And we wept, while the town went to sleep
And we wept, while the town went to sleep
And we wept, while the town went to sleep

Bus Ride

First I climb a mountain high
Then I roam the seas
First I climb a mountain high
Then I roam the seas

We have secrets
In our secret world
We are lovers
In our secret world

Sometimes
I roam the streets alone
Run down borders
Run down hills, to see
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
We have secrets
In our secret world
We are lovers
In our secret world

Excerpt from the movie "A Taste of Honey" (1961)

Well, goodbye
Hey! Aren't you gonna kiss me goodbye?
You know I am
Dream of me
Dreamt of you last night
Fell out of bed twice!

As If You Didn't Already Know

I was sitting in my chair
Waiting for your call
There was a forest fire burning
Somewhere there was war

There were pictures of a plane crash
From the day before
Images of people
At the mall

I'm telling you
As if you didn't already know
I'm still fond you

And I think about you
Most of the time
So what
As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know
I'm always on the run and I hate copy paste for god's sake
Let me think about it
For a minute
There was a forest fire burning
Somewhere there was war

There were pictures of you
From the day before
Images of people
You could see them fall

I'm telling you
As if you didn't already know
I'm still fond you

And I think about you
Most of the time
So what
As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know

I was waiting
Maybe faking
No, just waiting
Contemplating

When the roses die
And the angels fly
I won't go back again
With a dry eye

I'm telling you
As if you didn't already know
I'm still fond you

I think about you
Most of the time
So what
As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know

As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know
As if you didn't already know

Always On My Mind

(Elvis Presley cover / Live)

Maybe I didn't treat you
Quite as good as I could have
Maybe I didn't love you
Quite as often as I could have
Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Maybe I didn't hold you
All those lonely, lonely times
I guess I never told you
I'm so happy that you're mine
If I make you feel second best
Girl, I'm sorry I was blind

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Tell me,
Tell me that your sweet love hasn't died
Oh give me
Give me one more chance to keep you satisfied

Little things I should have said and done
I just never took the time

You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind, my mind
You were always on my mind
You were always on my mind

Femme Fatale

(The Velvet Underground cover / Live)

Here she comes
You'd better watch your step
She's going to break your heart in two
It's true
It's not hard to realize
Just look into her false-colored eyes
She builds you up to just put you down
What a clown

'Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
To see the way she walks
And hear the way she talks

You're written in her book
Number forty-seven, have a look
She's going to play you for a fool
It's true
The way she's in (?) the street
Before you start you're already beat
She's going to smile just to make you frown
What a clown

'Cause everybody knows
(She's a femme fatale)
The things she does to please
(She's a femme fatale)
She's just a little tease
(She's a femme fatale)
To see the way she walks
And hear the way she talks
Hear the way she walks
So see the way she talks
Hear the way she talks
Sometimes talks
Talks, talks, talks

Last Word

(Saint Thomas cover / A Tribute To St. Thomas: Walk With Me LP)

There's a big black cloud coming
And you gotta be cool
And you gotta be strong

There's a big black cloud coming
And you gotta be cool
And you gotta be strong

There's a big black cloud

There's a big black cloud coming
And you gotta be cool
You gotta be strong

There's a big black cloud coming
And you gotta be cool
You gotta be strong

Last word is not spoken
Every bridge is not broken
There's a picture to be taken
And you gotta be strong
And give it to the people right now

You were told where to go and where to hide
Someone's watching your ride
You were told where to go and where to hide
Someone's watching your ride

Every step that you make will be measured
And put into the right report
Every step that you make will be measured
And put into the right report

Last word is not spoken
Every bridge is not broken
There's a picture to be taken
And you gotta be strong
And give it to the people

Last word is not spoken
Every bridge is not broken
There's a picture to be taken
And you gotta be strong
And give it to the people right now

Last word is not spoken
Every bridge is not broken
There's a picture to be taken
And you gotta be strong
And give it to the people

Last word is not spoken
Every bridge is not broken
There's a picture to be taken
And you gotta be strong
And give it to the people right now

Make It Good

(Fink cover / Live)

If it's on it's on for good, yeah
'Cause when it's gone it's gone for good
And if you stayed over, you know we would, if we could
Put it back together, piece by piece
Put it back together, make it good

If I breathe in the future, breathe out the past, yeah
Savour this moment as long as it lasts
Put it back together, piece by piece
Put it back together, make it good

If you stayed over, I'd make it so sweet, yeah
I'd make you remember, baby, from your head to your feet
If you go now, babe, we'll never know
If you go now, babe, we'll never know
If you go now, babe, we'll never know
How it ends

Silent Night

(Christmas song)

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia
Christ, the Saviour is born
Christ, the Saviour is born

Silent night, holy night
Son of God, love's pure light
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus, Lord, at Thy birth

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon Virgin Mother and Child
Holy Infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Oh sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
