Track Name: Love on the Rocks
Love on the rocks

You don't have to move
To make me run after you
I'm losing my breath, this testing you put me through
You make me play this game that I have never won before
If love must be this way, it must be an endless war

I'm drinking love love love love on the rocks

Sometimes I am a ghost, I'm chasing ghosts myself
And you don't want to be caught, I know, you're a wild animal
My love for you is hurting me and I'm not doing so well
You keep me imprisoned here, while I'm just one stone's throw away from hell

I'm drinking love love love love on the rocks

Icy love, is it love at all
When I hear your empty words
I know I'm just fooling myself

You keep me in your fridge,
And you know that's not fair
My love's got no expiration date you know
It'll never go bad

Love on the rocks
I'm drinking love love love love on the rocks
Track Name: Undertaker
The Undertaker

I'm the undertaker, and I lay your soul to rest
I may look a bit gloomy, yes I may look a bit sad
I may not smile a lot, but really I'm not that bad
I'm doing my job and I am the best in the land

I am the undertaker, I'll be working for you one day
You won't escape your fate, Death is coming all our ways
No reason to panic, you may still Live until you're thirty eight
But there ain't no doubt about it, I'll be working for you one day

Undertaker, Undertaker, he's gonna work for me one day

No reason to start crying, I'm told heaven looks great
Hell didn’t even seem that bad, but that’s what the bad boys said
So don’t get over excited and please stand in line
I will take all your measurements and your coffin will fit you fine

Now let me organise your funeral, you know I can organise so well
You can ask all my dead friends, though they never lived to tell
24 hours a night you can count on my availability
I work twice as hard as anyone else, that’s because I never sleep you see

Undertaker, Undertaker, he's gonna work for me one day
Undertaker, Undertaker, he's gonna work for me one day

I am the undertaker and I take pride in what I do
I do my job the best I can, I make sure there is space for you
And if you ever get unemployed and you don’t know what to do
There is always work in my line of business
I may just have a job for you

Undertaker, Undertaker, he's gonna work for me one day
Undertaker, Undertaker, he s gonna work for me one day
Undertaker, Undertaker, he's gonna work for me one day
Track Name: When I lay my eyes on you
When I lay my eyes on you

When I lay my eyes on you
All my dreams come true
When I lay my eyes on you
I can see you love me too
When I lay my eyes on you

And when we’re walking in the park
Picking flowers in the grass
When I whisper in your ear
Our mouths are drawing near
When we’re walking in the park
When I take you by the hand
We don't need music to make us dance
What started with just a kiss
Turned into a wild romance
When I take you by the hand

When the day comes to an end
We don’t have to say goodbye
We’ll make love all through the night
And everything’s gonna be alright
When the day comes to an end
When I lay my eyes on you
All my dreams come true
When I lay my eyes on you
I can see you love me too
When I lay my eyes on you
Track Name: Head full of cotton wool
Head Full of Cotton Wool

Are you sure we are alone
If only I could explain you what's going on
My head is full of cotton wool
I may be insane, but I ain't no fool
Ain't gonna be treated this way

They lock me up whenever they please
And every time something breaks in me
I beg my demons please go away
I'm not religious, but I still pray anyway.

And the doctors say I'm not okay
For a few months more I will have to stay
I can't think for myself that's what they say
It's these drugs they forced me to swallow yesterday
Yes these drugs keep me from walking far anyway

Just to feel if I am still alive
Sometimes I try to commit suicide
That's what they call a cry for help
But it's just that I don’t know how to do it right

As God is my is neighbour, that's what he says
He keeps getting calls from the secret service
He says that I should join his army one day
I'd make it from soldier to general right away

They said that now that I am cured from insanity
They don’t know any more what to do with me
So they kick me right back into society
And my story starts all over again, I am so sorry

And the doctors say I'm not okay
For a few months more I may have to stay
I can't think for myself that's what they say
It's these drugs they forced me to swallow yesterday
Yes these drugs keep me from walking far anyway
