A good head of hair To measure one by If not in coins or towels The sound of my voice We have no other choice There are no coins or towels The size of your screen It cannot be seen And all your coins and towels We'd got it all wrong Now our objects are gone And all our coins and towels It's over and we're nothing now Forget it / Regret it The size of your cock To measure one by If not in coins or towels The things that we know There is nowhere to go There are no coins or towels Without all this stuff There is nothing to bluff And all your coins and towels We'd got it all wrong Now our objects are gone And all our coins and towels

More musicians came into town Through the backdoor Through the window More musicians came into town Just to make it Or to break it But it doesn't seem to matter any more Can a voice still break the walls down just like it did before More musicians came into town On an airplane Just to complain More musicians came into town On a record That's what I heard More musicians came into town On an iPod But then it got robbed More musicians came into town On a website Until they had a fight More musicians

I'm afraid to open this book For fear that someone might look I've a problem with drink 'Cause it stops me to think And it's just like the weather It might just get better But you're better not fooling yourself It's hardly a way to go down But to keep one's head up in this town The drink makes you float And you start to gloat When you brain is at large Your mouth is in charge You're better not fooling yourself The story I tell you is true So don't it happen to you But if it does Remember me 'cause I'll buy you a drink When you're on the brink But you're better not fooling yourself

Silly little fly was burning on a candle Burning the small fry, smoke that is so tender Little star has fallen into the puddle by the steps The squadron did not notice the fallen fighter The dead one did not live, the sick's not kicked the bucket The seer was not blind, the sleeper is still tucked in Merry beating brave hearts (in Morse code would tell) The squadron did not notice the fallen fighter No-one was more dear, no-one was more pretty No-one was more pained, no-one was more happy There was no beginning and there was no end The squadron did not notice the fallen fighter

See how the people make it We fall on the ground

My explorer's cap is on I found a winch to hoist me I go witness, I progress And a thousand smiles, and a thousand miles Just send me some colourful postcards With a funny anecdote written at the back My address won't change We have to sit on a stump Without a seat reservation The ground has turned to dust Our mouths are dry

Can we have a conversation through the floor? Belladonna, I stare blankly at the screen Sending you my virtual love and all its frills I stare blankly at the screen, does it dilate my pupils? Bacchanalia, if anyone is looking for some tender love in this town You can tell them all the boys and girls are very friendly

Elle court, ce n'est qu'un début, en esquivant les dangers Elle court, elle avance à tout prix, elle virevolte sur un cheval Elle court, sans peur du hasard, se jette à toute vitesse Vers la Chose, un monstre final, l'inconnu redouté redouté Il n'y a pourtant aucune déclaration officielle Mais un conflit permanent, les faits divers sont bien autopsiés On attend un grave écroulement, ou une ébullition Que la Chose enfin survienne, l'inconnu redouté redouté Elle attend comme nous tous non pas l'amour en tapant du pied En se grattant parfois entre les sourcils et derrière l'oreille Elle court, ce n'est plus le début, elle esquive facilement les dangers Elle court, elle avance à tout prix, sans jamais descendre du cheval Elle court, elle fait abstraction d'un potentiel ennemi violent Elle va droit, tout droit vers la chose, vers la Chose redoutée redoutée ...elle réfléchit, attend le moment opportun, boit un coup C'était un jour tranquille sur une plage froide, sous une averse grise, un vent douteux la pinçait La chose bondit depuis la dune, elle lui demanda où elle allait Elle dit qu'il n'y a pas de fin, que tout est maintenant, tout est maintenant Alors commença l'affrontement, mais je ne me souviens plus de rien Elle marche, avance lentement, se cogne contre tous les coins Elle marche, en forçant son âme, elle avance malgré les larmes Elle coule dans les vagues la chaleur, descend jusqu'au fond Où elle trouve la Chose redoutée, cette Chose redoutée redoutée ...pour prétendre réfléchir elle n'attends plus aucun moment, elle bois un coup

Second hand living Just taking not giving No matter the weather Apart not together Secondhand money On second hand time In the end it doesn't matter Maybe it will just work out fine We had it all but that wasn't enough We tried it all but that wasn't enough Total delusion Delirium is deep Onslaught of unhappiness If we let ourselves be weak Peace comes from within And not from without Hardly a slogan For living through drought

about

"Always in front of a bookcase with a sweater or some other wimpy world music clothes on, this Franco-Anglo Ian MacKaye circa midlife crisis never disappoints when it comes to highly listenable jams."
