He crossed the sea for one pretty girl he found himself in a crazy cell away from his brother, away from his cat who if they had the chance, would stab him in the back He crossed the town for one single fuck craving for safety, a devoted slut It's a pity that I don't have a bed 'Well we can still kiss', that's what he said And all the girls went wild oh when he gave 'em his smile And all the girls went wild oh when he gave 'em his smile He crossed the park for my stolen stuff sons of bitches, he was my love he kissed like a wolf, devouring his pray and when he talked a lot, I didn't know what to say We crossed the night, it ended bad It had been three days, that we'd had flirting while holding my hand and guitar rolling and rolling in the ragged grass He had the devil's face but never won the race he had the devil's face but always lost the race and all the girls went wild oh when he gave 'em his smile Oh you don't have to seduce no more you don't have to seduce no more, no more I'll never see him again Oh no I'll never see him again and his devil's face And all the girls went wild oh when he gave 'em his smile He had the devil's face but never won a race He had the devil's face but never won the race and all the girls went wild oh when he gave 'em his smile

You asked me why I was going to leave So many times It made my ears bleed Oh you know it's just the weather and mummy didn't love me Your French just didn't have style "Vous etes tres belles" never made me smile When you started with your Spanish Antonio would razz another tuneage Oh how sorry I felt for that self of mine Listening to the Flamenco-whore whine and whine As we were getting on with it The Flamenco-whore had one of his fits Oh my, he had no respect for kids And I'm pretty sure he saw my tits Oh I lost all self-control You had a terrible accent and put it on show When you said "Je cherche la verité" I punched you in the face and ran far away oh I'm so sorry I had to punch you in the face and run run away Oh you know it's just the weather Oh and mummy never loved me As the Flamenco-whore would drink his wine You knew that girl will never be mine So I decided that your black curly hair just wouldn't keep me there I decided your high-pitched girly laugh just destroyed all my dreams And of course I do feel some guilt and shame But seriously I'm not the one to blame For you falling in love with an immature, selfish cunt Oh but you know it's just the weather And mummy didn't love me And the Flamenco-whore would never stop Just to remind me what real pain was So I was driven out of town By your friends and a sad sad clown And to end this whole story I thought you were really really boring But still I'll say sorry Cause you did cause me slight worry But as I said it was the weather and mummy didn't love me And the Flamenco-whore went on and on singing all of his heart-breaking songs If the weather had been better maybe but probably not, I'd still be in your arms maybe but probably not, we'd be holding hands maybe but probably not, I'd stand a minute by your side But as I said it was the weather and mummy didn't love me and noone ever loved me except for you so I threw you away

Insects crawling under my skin something's wrong and I know it's not the drugs I bet you trust everyone and everything Oh, I know you'd never want to hurt me oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you What are you trying to escape from? you're so young, never killed, you should go home so listen girl, I really like you and if you left without saying goodbye oh sister, I would die oh sister, I would die So take these pills they will make you really chilled oh you know I'd never want to hurt you oh you know I'd never want to hurt you But when you smile everything seems alright and between those smiles I catch those lonely eyes and the whole world is falling into you and the whole world is falling into you Oh do you think I'm pretty enough? Oh do you think I'm woman enough? Oh I wish I was human enough oh I know you'd never want to hurt me oh I know you'd never want to hurt me Well insects are crawling under my skin something's wrong and I know it's not the drugs I bet you trust everyone and everything Oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you oh, you know I'd never want to hurt you Oh when you smile everything seems alright and between those smiles I catch those lonely eyes and the whole world is falling into you and the whole world is falling into you and you know I'd never want to hurt you and you know I'd never want to hurt you

I was broke so I got me a job They gave me a bed and made sure I was fed Well after the night I woke up in delight cause I wasn't on my own anymore my whole life was changing for sure While the others would trip and drink in the meanwhile I would have a think How to free my mind for real How to get myself into a peer good friends to hang out in dirty streets good friends to watch porn and make some beats Well God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect drinking tea, singing let it be the cockroaches and me! They accepted me straight away without antenna still they said I could stay I never knew that cockroaches were so nice In school we'd learnt that they were dirty parasites And noone was better or worse and if you wanted to go to church they wouldn't bug you no they wouldn't bug you Well God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect daytrips to the sea finally set free the cockroaches and me! Though history tried to seperate us and others said that we were just posers we formed an anarchist collective and laid out our basic objections: to stop this pointless seggregation, more warm dark public spaces, no compound-eye-discrimination oh our friendship was so strong we proved the world it was wrong that indeed we could go hand in hand and rule the world together oh and rule the world together Well, God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect climbing trees, bruises on our knees the cockroaches and me! As the human beings were destroying themselves the cockroaches gave a crashcourse on endurance and health in the end everyone died except for us oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush oh what a beautiful world, no need to rush no more, oh no more! Well, God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect drinking tea, singing let it be the cockroaches and me! Well, God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect daytrips to the sea, finally set free the cockroaches and me! Well, God sent me a harem of insects who didn't judge me for my lack of intellect climbing trees, bruises on our knees the cockroaches and me! The cockroaches and me oh! the cockroaches and me! the cockroaches and meee

See the generations see them passing by a host of memories bearing dreams for light One to slay and one to weep and one to lose and one to keep And one to hurt, one to heal one to give and one to steal and one to loathe, to loathe See the generations see them trudging by how their tears fall how their faces shine I have been them all I remember well my birthings and my dyings the colours of my soul but now I'm so tired, mother take me with you when you go Ah no, my child go back to sleep for living is a dream and you must learn to play your part and call them by their names the comrades with whom you fight this life so many and many a time See the generations see them marching by how they bravely live their lives how they bravely die I have been them all I remember well my birthings and my dyings the colours of my soul but now I'm so tired, mother take me with you when you go

He was such a lonely guy paragliding through the sky but after landing hard he gave it a new start with a career as a taxi driver and a badass womaniser Oh you know one week in hospital can be quite traumatising girl So let daddy show the direction oh, let daddy give you some affection Oh Pierre, oh mon père don't you think it's a bit unfair Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père Should your hands really go there? A wife and a bunch of kids were not enough for Pierre's big big heart and as long as you had a pair of tits you were pretty sure to get a major part in his romantic action comedy indeed, a midlife crisis tragedy he was a sexmachine, not only on stage he didn't give a shit, don't know to behave Oh Pierre, oh mon Pierre you had so much love to share Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père Should your hands really go there? Stress is not in my vocabulary since my accident I'm always merry Carpe Diem is my thing and all the ladies deserve the king I'm the lion come out of my cave and you're the lost soul I'm gonna save Oh Cindy always thought she was gay but at the end of her stay she paid for one more day as she met the Frenchman of her life he was the fire for her dynamite oh no better place for making love! in the common room it would get quite rough! And the bathroom floor would suit as well oh how impulsive Pierre would moan and yell: Oh Pierre! Oh Pierre! You had so much love to share! Oh Pierre! Oh mon cher père Don't you think it's a bit unfair? Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père Should your hands really go there? Oh Pierre, oh mon cher père oh don't you think it' a bit unfair oh you had so much love to share Oh Pierre, oh Pierre, oh Pierre, I miss you so Oh Pierre Should your hands really go there?

When I come home from a bad night out it makes me philosophical, thinking about that one and one make none and all my friends have gone and I wish I'd never seen the sun, oh I wish I'd never seen the sun Strangers come and go, some stop to say hello once a week you might have a cup of tea and they always turn out different from what you thought them to be but does it matter in the end that you made one more friend to spend some time for the sake of some memories for the sake of wasted memories But, where do you go when there is no home? where do you go when there is no home People wanting bread and games others enlightment, is it the same? oh, is it really brave to live this life or just stupid not to turn to suicide? oh, I'd have to drop that knife if I found there was eternal life oh I'd be so disappointed to cancel my last appointment to cancel my last appointment But, where do you go when there is no home? Tell me, where do you go when there is no home After all you change the place in case someone starts to read your face which coast it doesn't matter someone just show me something better I can't stand the harem of people no more I keep to let me forget what I don't know I keep to let me forget what I don't know But, where do you go when there is no home? Tell me, where do you go when there is no home I know it's all just there for me the turn-off-button is hidden in the sea and it'll take me more than a thousand years to dive to the bottom of my fears but in the end you're on your own and it seems like you still haven't grown no one you love can really fill your soul no one you love can really fill your soul But, where do you go when there is no home? Tell me, where do you go when there is no home? Tell me, where should I go when there is no home? Tell me where should I go when there's no place to belong? Tell me where do you go when there is no home? Tell me where should I go when there is no home
