Track Name: Shakespeare Was An American
SHAKESPEARE WAS AN AMERICAN

Shakespeare was an American, American, a savage one
Shakespeare was an American, sing a long Americans
Downtown faces all alone
Disco lights but no one home

Shakespeare was an American
Everything is coming up dead roses
Everything is coming up dead roses

Friday night is terrible, Saturday forgettable
Human trash down to the bone
We love your face, in a fade-out-way
Sacred hours on Madison
Dubonnet in Camden Town

Shakespeare was an American
Track Name: Fashion Week
FASHION WEEK

We´re ready for blackout, our faces are blue
Small tiny fingers from pills and glue
Dynamite poses, blowing kisses on que
We´re ready for blackout, some cocaine too
Taking my picture, blowing kisses on que

From fashion to fashion
There´s no killing time
From fashion to fashion
It´s all do or die
We pray at the nightclub

I´m ready to join the human race
But now I´m too busy with Johnnys nails
We´re ready for blackout, our faces are blue
Track Name: Damascus 602
DAMASCUS 602

I used to be a dead man
Now I´m just a man
You wanted something more to break
And my head upon your plate

I used to be a good boy
Then, woken with a kiss

I used to drive a car
I used to be a pig
I used to be a dead man
Track Name: From the Shadows
FROM THE SHADOWS

Alive like flower by the subway rail
Dance like Nijinsky on broken glass
Just like a car crash that lies in wait
One red light away

FROM THE SHADOWS – Everybody says hello
FROM THE SHADOWS –There’s no place to fall
FROM THE SHADOWS – We´ll never say goodbye
These are the nights of our lives

Bye, Little Piggie, your name was on my list
You´re far from the planet of good and bad
Just like a car crash that lies in wait
One red light away

FROM THE SHADOWS – Everybody says hello
FROM THE SHADOWS –There’s no place like home
FROM THE SHADOWS – We´ll never say goodbye
These are our lives passing by

Sangre beauty
So-so beauty queen…
Track Name: They Walked Like Men
THEY WALKED LIKE MEN

Fifteen steps from eternity
Two steps from your door
Sixteen eyes and a greenish tail
One step from your door

There´s nothing in this world that you can´t destroy
So come on let´s fall in love
Sixteen eyes and a dead end smile
No crystal ball

Seventeen and nothing going on
Seventeen there´s nothing going on
Tell the news there´s nothing going on

They walked like men
Track Name: Spirits of the Dead Watching
SPIRITS OF THE DEAD WATCHING

Goodnight, Mrs hangman
Goodbye, beautiful girl
There´s no time for you to pretend
There´s no time for you to make friends
There´s no time, boys and girls
There´s no time to look to the stars

Bright city lights, bright city cries
Let´s burn down the discoteque
Bright city lights, bright city cries
Let´s burn like Mephisto

There´s no time for you to pretend
There´s no time for you to make friends
There´s no time for praying hands
There´s no time for La La Land
There´s no time to surrender
Track Name: European Blood
EUROPEAN BLOOD

From Portugal to Kentish Town
We slept through the day
Snatching bodies with a blink of an eye
Burning slow in Belgravia
Subterranean nights
Snatching bodies, we dressed up to kill

We were the faces
We were the ones
Playground sensation
European blood on our hands

We were the white noise
We had it all
Playground sensation
European blood on our hands

From Portugal to Fulham Road
We slept through the day
Snatching bodies with a blink of an eye
Track Name: Spiders
SPIDERS

Determination – here comes the after world
It’s like suffocation – I’m not the best of girls
Determination – I´m on the night xpress
It´s no celebration - here comes the after world

Spiders in love
We’re two spiders in love

Suburbia lives is something to die for; determination
Suburbia lives is something to cry for
crying for the moon, determination, liebling

Coughs like an angel, no time to play it safe
Down goes an angel, Downtown to Marakech
Determination – here comes the after world
Track Name: Killed Again
KILLED AGAIN

Jesus gave us disco lights
Saturdays and lonely nights
Everything’s so cool
When no one’s in control

Someone gave us a cross to bear
Americans their Savoir fair
We’d love to stay and talk
But we’re dead against it all

Sixteen angels under ground
Babyface, drag me down
Sixteen angels gone today
You´ll never feel the pain
When you´re killed again

Someone gave us a cross to bear
Late night drinking and love despair
The Lord is mighty strong
But fashion’s in command

I can´t tell night from day
How can I tell when there is no hell
Track Name: Crashing
CRASHING

Spare me, little girl, spare me. Spare me, little girl
Spare me, little girl. I’m nobody at all.

I know you won’t. You know you won’t

spare me, little girl, spare me. Spare me, little girl

Just like crashing in that dream again
And I´ll come driving back for more
Just like crashing in that dream again
And you´re no Venus after all

Look upon the sky and tell me, tell me what you see
Look upon the sky and tell me is it really you and me?
