Track Name: A Well Educated Man Part I
He is lovely and handsome as can be
Polite he is a well educated man
He’s never been down
Every Monday he goes to the gym
He is in good shape but as time goes by
He’s wondering why

Isn’t it the same for everyone on this city,
On this planet, in this world ?
He says « everybody should follow me
And if they don’t, they don’t deserve to be happy »

On the Tuesdays he goes to his mother’s
There is no one home and she feels alone
Since father is gone but he does not think about it
Does not think at all
He’s got a job, a new television set,
He payed all his debts, so why

Isn’t it the same for everyone on this city,
On this planet, in this world ?
He says « everybody should follow me
And if they don’t, they don’t deserve to be happy »

He’s a well educated man, he’s a father, he’s a worker
But he still hasn’t found the deep meaning of his life
And that’s why he is so sad, because he thought he’d reached it
So why isn’t it the same for everyone on this city,
On this planet, in this world ?

He says « everybody should follow me
And if they don’t, they don’t deserve to be happy »
Track Name: Searching For A Shadow
When I came home I searched for you the other day
After looking everywhere I know you had gone away
But I don’t panic I know you’re not so far
You’re just hiding somewhere or underneath a jar

Oh I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still want you by my side
I love, I love you, I still
Still need you just behind me
I just wanna know for real
If you’re hiding from me
‘Cause I love, I love you, I still
Still need you close to me

I miss your darkness and sympathy
I love the way you’d take
Everything you’d see
And now each time that I look behind
I don’t see nothing except
The bliding light of the sun

Oh I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still want you by my side
I love, I love you, I still
Still need you just behind me
I just wanna know for real
If you’re hiding from me
‘Cause I love, I love you, I still
Still need you close to me

You were my shadow and I was your man
How can we live without each other ?
Now I believe that you found somebody else
To regain a proper shape

Oh I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still want you by my side
I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still need you just behind me
I just wanna know for real
If you’re hiding from me
‘Cause I love, I love you, I still
Still need you close to me

Oh I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still want you by my side
I love, I love you, I still
Still need you just behind me
I just wanna know for real
If you’re hiding from me
‘Cause I love, I love you, I still
Yeah
Oh I love, I love, I love you, I still
Still want you by my side
I love, I love you, I still
Still need you just behind me
I just wanna know for real
If you’re hiding from me
‘Cause I love, I love you, I still
Track Name: Lazy Larry
Larry is sitting on the beach
The sun is burning his skin
He needs the solar cream
But he can’t reach it without moving
He says « i’m going to bake »
But he sees that the sea’s too far
So he decides to wait for the rising tide

And then he finally comes home
Red like a lobster and dehydrated
It’s lazy larry

Larry is his kitchen, totally starving
He wants to cook some rice
But there are too many dirty dishes
He doesn’t want to clean a pan to boil some water
So he puts the rice with water in a box
In the microwave

Half an hour later he finally eats
But it’s not as brillant as he could expect
It’s lazy larry

Oh larry you are so lazy
Why don’t you get going
Already ?
Track Name: A Well Educated Man Part II
He is a well educated man
Track Name: Christmas Day
Well I just woke up and tomorrow it’s Christmas day
I’ve got to order some food, they won’t do it anyway
I run to the store, everything’s going away :
« Is there some turkey left ? »

« No, sorry you should have come way earlier !
‘Cause there is nothing I can do by the hour
You should have been organized
If I may advise »

It’s just another Christmas day
Nothing to worry about, it’s always the same
The same faces you don’t want to see
The old uncles, the mean aunties that you hate

The little nephews all over the place
The useful gifts you receive
And you’re smiling, pretending your so glad

Oh I just need love tonight
Oh I just need love all the time
I’m sick and i’m tired of this life
I can’t control myself when I’m down
Oh yes I’m down
Track Name: Missing Horses
Up on the hill he’s hiding the horses
That he just stole from your ranch
Everyone knows your a man of pride and honour
You must catch him yourself

But how could you find bill ?
He’s the best bandit boy around
Your horse’s colt will
Be dead before you shoot him down

With three of your men you’re out in the wild
Danger is everywhere
The snakes, the spiders, the indians, the gangsters,
There’s not enough bullets for that

But how could you find bill ?
He’s the best bandit boy around
And if you ever find him
He – the first – will shoot you down
A week has passed and you don’t see the end
Of your ambitious adventure
The boys are tired , they are starving to death
And so you scream out loud :

« How could I find bill ?
He’s the best bloody bandit around
Up on the high hills
For a few horses I won’t get shot down »
Track Name: Devil In Her Eyes
« A man’s going to tell you a story about a little girl he knew
She was young and pretty but nobody knew what she liked
Or what she thought
She was lost, and alone »

But one day she came to Highschool
And discovered a group of cool guys
And she decided to be part of them
So she took the same drugs to become
Cooler than them.

She’s got the devil in her eyes.
Track Name: Lost In The Desert
Standing in front of the sun
Waiting with my feet in the sand
I’m looking for the one I love
I’m looking around and i’m looking above

I know there is no hope
No living soul
I’m gonna drown in this ocean of sand
All alone

No more water in my body
Soon I will come back to dust
I might find something that worth it
But I’ll never get used to it

I know there is no hope
No living soul
I’m gonna drown in this ocean of sand
All alone
Track Name: Gambling
Mr Johnson’s going up he’s going down
He has got a dog, he has got a car
But sometimes he sleeps on the ground
He’s living his life day by day
He’s loosing his wife a little more everyday

‘Cause he spends his nights gambling
All around
Playing all his money loosing is mind
There’s no one on earth who could convince him to quit
When the gambling fever has taken his spirit

Working all day gambling all night and that’s all
Johnson doesn’t mind to act like an asshole
The only thougth that is running through his brain
Is to get the winning card, and put it on the table

‘Cause he spends his nights gambling
All around
Playing all his money loosing is mind
There’s no one on earth who could convince him to quit
When the gambling fever has taken his spirit.
Track Name: Jerem's Catfish
Well I woke up this morning
Ran to the window
Stared at the water
Something was going on

I knew today was the day
Couldn’t explain why but somehow I felt it

Then I went to my son’s
I said « Get out of bed
I hope that you’re ready
To fish some mermaids »

And we jumped on our boat
In the middle of the lake we started to wait

After waiting all day long
We caught a fish so strong
He nearly sank our boat

Now let the fight begin
It’s gonna be so hard
I said « son you must save your strenght
‘till the fish is yours »

Now we can see is back
This catfish is so huge I can’t believe my eyes

I’m really turning mad
Even in my fanciest dreams
I never ever hoped
To witness such a thing

Now the beast has almost given up
But I still think that we’re living in a dream

We’re so excited
Jumping everywhere
But we still need to lift that fish

Oh I’m so proud of my son
He caught it on his own
Now we can go back home
Track Name: Moonlight Murder
Late at night you can guess our shadows in the dark
But by the time you realize it we already surround you
A red moonlight is brightening our guns and knives
And when we quietly start working
You know you won’t survive ‘cause

You wont ever feel fine
When the boys are back in town
Just in case you’d cross our way
There’s no chance to see the next day
Don’t even try to fight
‘Cause if you do you’re gonna die
We know how to make it quick
So you’d better not resist

When the daylight’s coming at last we are delighted
And we never feel ashamed of being bloody handed
As soon as we can we’ll be back
Back to play with your fears and your lives
So this is why I’m saying

You wont ever feel fine
When the boys are back in town
Just in case you’d cross our way
There’s no chance to see the next day
Don’t even try to fight
‘Cause if you do you’re gonna die
We know how to make it quick
So you’d better not resist

You wont ever feel fine
When the boys are back in town
Just in case you’d cross our way
There’s no chance to see the next day
Don’t even try to fight
‘Cause if you do you’re gonna die
We know how to make it quick
So you’d better not resist

You gonna die
Track Name: What Are You Gonna Do ?
She’s walking straight she will never turn back
‘Cause after so much pain out there
She won’t go back for more
The rain is falling down and the sky is grey
It’s not what we could call a lovely day
The night is coming, the wind is blowing

Oh you should have thought about all this
Before you came to me
Saying that you behaved so awfully wrong
But what is done cannot be changed, cannot be turned
What do you want me to say
She’s walking, she’s running away

And now this girl who was in love with you
Will start her life again
And you what are you gonna do now that your all alone
You should begin right know
To search for some something knew
Instead of letting you die
Stand up and be strong know
And please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past

Oh why do you fuck up everything
I’m the little voice inside your head
I know exactly who you are
If I’m so tuff it’s for your own good, your own wealth
I’m just trying to help you out
But I have the feeling that it’s not working

Oh you know I feel sorry for you
Maybe because you are me
But you got what you deserved
This schizophrenia won’t help us out
We must work together on that
The best way we’ll find

And now this girl who was in love with you
Will start her life again
And you what are you gonna do now that your all alone
You should begin right know
To search for some something knew
Instead of letting you die
Stand up and be strong know
And please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past

You’re so sad and she must be to
She learned to be careful and you learned something about you
She will think twice before she trust someone knew
You’ll be happy when you’ll undertand it too

Oh she will never come back
‘Cause after so much pain out there
She won’t go back for more
The rain is faling down and the sky is grey
It’s not what we could call a lovely day
She’s walking, she’s running away

And now this girl who was in love with you
Will start her life again
And you what are you gonna do now that your all alone
You should begin right know
To search for some something knew
Instead of letting you die
Stand up and be strong know
And please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past

You should begin right know
To search for some something knew
Instead of letting you die
Stand up and be strong know
And please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past

You should begin right know
To search for some something knew
Instead of letting you die
Stand up and be strong know
And please don’t repeat the mistakes of the past
