Kinder Words
No time now for losing tempers
Or filling up with rage or anger
Flying off the handle could be detrimental
Calmer hands are called for here
A breath or two might be applied
We'll count to ten and then decide
A rash decision - crash collision
Damage done beyond repair
Kinder words here we could pick
A kind approach might do the trick
Hurt you, hurt me, well that needs to stop
Kinder words here we could choose
We've kind of got a lot to lose
The temperature we need that to drop
A wrong move now might spell disaster
A selfish one might spell it faster
Let's relax, review the facts
For all involved that might be best
A world of difference might be made
If our next move could be delayed
We'll sort it out and we'll talk about
Just what it was that caused this mess
Kinder words here we could pick
A kind approach might do the trick
Hurt you, hurt me, that's the worst thing we could do
Kinder words here we could choose
We've kind of got a lot to lose
Watch what we say, don't walk away, we'll see it through
Kinder words here we could pick
A kind approach might do the trick
Hurt you, hurt me, well that needs to stop
Kinder words here we could choose
We've kind of got a lot to lose
The temperature we need that to dropback to top
Hell of a Hat
That's a hell of a hat that you're wearing
It goes real well with the earring
Five through the nose, bold and daring
You've got to pardon me if I'm staring
Man, I really dig your shoes
Phat fade and fresh tattoos
Bet the females can't refuse
And if I'm staring please excuse
Sharpest motherfucker in the joint
The other motherfuckers stop and point
The gear you wear seems complete
Why you gotta pack the heat
We question one accessory
Don't think the piece is necessary
We agree you're dressed to kill
But wonder if you will
Hell of a hat you're sporting jack
Diamond cuff links and a sweet tie tack
The pocket watch must've set you back
You're the man, man, you're the mack
The pinstriped number, me oh my, that's rude
And that's a hell of an attitude
You made the scene and set the mood
I'm only staring, cause I'm nervous dude
Sharpest motherfucker, we repeat
No other motherfucker can compete
The clothes you chose, are stylish son
Why you gotta wear the gun
We question one accessory
Don't think the piece is necessary
We agree you're dressed to kill
But wonder if you willback to top
Pictures to Prove It
Well you insisted the day you walked away
That we shared nothing, but I've got something
I'd still like to say
You're not here to listen, and we were never good at that
Let's set the record straight, we shared something great
Even though now nothing's where we're at
Pictures to prove it, I've got the proof
When you hit the bricks, I hit the roof
I hit the bottle, put the pictures on the bar
I'll always have these pictures, but I don't know where you are
And I've got pictures to prove it
If you saw them, I'm sure
You'd be forced to remember
What we don't have anymore
I've got a pile of pictures
I've got a whole stack of proof
I've got pictures to prove it, I've got, I've got
Pictures to prove it, smudged with fingerprints and tears
Cigarette ashes
And our first few happy years
They're old now, they're faded and the edges all are frayed
I'll always have these pictures
But I wish that you had stayed
I've got pictures to prove it
If you saw them, I'm sure
You'd be forced to remember
What we don't have anymore
I've got a pile of pictures
I've got a whole stack of proof
I've got pictures to prove it and all I ever do is
Stare at the pictures for hours on end
They tell the truth to me
While I'm sure you just pretend
And you deny we ever happened and swear it never was that way
Even you'll admit when I submit to you exhibit a right?
I've got pictures to prove it
I'm not just blowing smoke
If you don't believe me, believe them
No this ain't no joke
I've got a pile of pictures
I've got a whole stack of proof
Someone look at the pictures
I've got, I've got...back to top
We Should Talk
Don't touch that dial, don't click the clicker
We love to watch, they love to bicker
Don't turn the knob or change the channel
Hey! where the hell did they get this panel?
Where are they from? where have they been?
They air it out, we suck it in suck it in
Up on stage all in a row
At each other's throats all through the show
The mood is tense, the tension's thicker
We watch, they fight, just who here's sicker?
We're not so bad, I guess after all
Their problems make ours seem so small
We'd be much better off I bet
If we'd turn off the tv set turn it off now
She broke down and he came clean
We stay glued, glued to the screen
Just how much more can we take?
Thank God here comes a station break
We're not so bad, I guess after all
Their problems make ours seem so small
We'd be much better off I bet
If we turned off the tv set turn it off now
Don't think that we can take much more
We've lost it now man, that's for sure
Lost another day, check out the clock
Pull the plug, shut it down, turn it off, now,
We should talkback to top
Stand Off
I couldn't be more confused
But more than that I'm upset
We once stood side by side
We were young when we met
We'd always stand together
That's how we had it planned
Now where do we stand oh
I can't stand the pain
I guess I don't understand
I just don't understand this stand off
There's a lot I don't understand
We're apart and don't have to be
What went wrong? I don't know off hand
I only know this is killing me
So I called your bluff
Said I'd see you around
You stood tough
You stood your ground
Now I'm standing by
I'm trying to stand tall
I'm standing alone
Don't understand this at all
I just don't understand this stand off
There's a lot I don't understand
We're apart, do we have to be?
What went wrong? I don't know off hand
I only know this is killing me
Now I'm standing by - watching myself die
Right beside myself - like it isn't me
It's some other guy
And time's standing still - and I'll stand here until
I understand - or you come back
I really hope you will
I don't understand where we went wrong
I don't understand how it fell apart
Did I wait too long to write this song?
I always thought I was smartback to top
365 Days
It's gripping, I'm ripping
I haven't just been sipping
Stressing no messing
Will I ever learn my lesson?
I'm always amazed, by what can take place
Within the space of 300-365
Sinning, I'm spinning
In the beginning I was winning
Clinging, still swinging
If I could I would be singing
I'm always amazed by what can take place
Within the space of 300-365
I'm empty of answers
Don't nobody search me
The long neck's a twist off
You don't need a church key
I'm still full of questions
But can't quite see clear
Twist off another (3x)
And bring on next year
Drilled it killed my guts are being spilled
Wailed, impaled
My last breath's been inhaled
That's still in me
I haven't failed
I'm always amazed, by what can take place
Within the space of 300-365
I'm empty of answers
Don't nobody search me
The long neck's a twist off
You don't need a church key
I'm still full of questions
But can't quite see clear
Twist off another (3x)
And bring on next year
300-365 (3x) 365 day!

Die mighty mighty bosstones haetten an dieser
Stelle gerne eisgekuehlter bommerlunder von den toten hosen gesampelt,
Doch rechtsanwälte und plattenbosse haben dies mal wieder verhindert.

* translation of german: the mmb would have liked to sample 'eisgekuehlter bommerlunder' by the toten hosen, but lawyers and record company bosses have prevented that again.back to top
Toxic Toast
Queensbury ah #8
Hell hotel punk rock estate
Way way back back in the day
100 years it seems that way
Just across from wayne's junk store
3 floors up then straight ahead
If someone thought to lock the door
Use the fire escape instead
Someone's always up to something
One thing's always understood
If nothing happened in a minute
Wait another, something would
Avoid the landlord spend the rent
Raising hell with reckless style
And sure our time was poorly spent
But toxic toast still makes me smile
Looking back now - not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me - like it wants me
I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
This stuff's 100-30 proof
Glue threw the tv off the roof
The whole damn place just wasn't stable
Andrew trashed the coffee table
Rico's here, the party's reeling
Colam's been spray painting the ceiling
Can't make a call and man it's cold
Alcohol and stranglehold
Toxic toast jake coined the phrase
Haven't thought about it for a while
Mindless endless nights and days
But toxic toast still makes me smile
Looking back now - not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me - like it wants me
I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
Someone's always up to something
One thing's always understood
If nothing happened in a minute
Wait another, something would
Looking back now not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me like it wants me
I remember I remember I remember - toxic toast
Looking back now not sure how
We made it through, not all of us but most
Still haunts me like it wants me
I remember I remember I remember - toxic toastback to top
Bronzing the Garbage
You're off base
Out of line and in my face
Brace yourself - I'm coming through
And before you know what's hit you
You'll have heard my point of view
Trash is trash
Have I got your attention?
There's more that you should know
There's more I've got to mention
You've got to let it go
I was a child, another time another place
Only a child would carry this so far
You're still in my face
I held it back, I was afraid
Didn't want to blow your cover
But I was on to your charade
Trash is trash
Have I got your attention?
There's more that you should know
There's more I've got to mention
You've got to let it go
Bronzing the garbage
There was a time I was impressed
Through all the garbage
It's still not you that I detest
I hate the way
You can't forget, I hate it so
Bronze what you want
But you've got to let it go
Have I got through?
Have I got through to you?
Gave it a shot - finally got to state my case
If you've heard nothing, please hear this
Don't get in my face
Trash is trash
Ahhhh....trash is trash
Bronzing the garbage
There was a time I was impressed
Through all the garbage
It's still not you that I detest
I hate the way
You can't forget, I hate it so
Bronze what you want
But you've got to let it go
Have I got your attention?
There's more that you should know
There's more I've got to mention
You've got to let it go
Have I got your attention?
There's more that you should know
There's more I've got to mention
You've got to let it goback to top
Dogs and Chaplains
Don't mind when it happens
No problem when I am saying it
But when I lose my mind, kick my behind
Because I hate when my mind keeps replaying it
I'm not bragging and I'm not proud
I hang around with a drunken crowd
We are happy, that I can say
And until we're not I kid you not, we're gonna stay that way
My life would start to settle down... johnny!
Then you came along and you turned it upside down... vegas!
Drunks and children they always tell the truth... johnny!
But I'm sober and older and could've held on to... my youth!
Drinkin' the other day
I said I loved you, you turned away
Maybe the drinking, made me cry
But I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy
Drunks and children they tell the truth
And that's what I am a drunken youth
And when I'm drinking I don't know why
But I'm a happy, very happy, very happy guy
Sometimes when I am playing
I never watch what I am saying
Sometimes I lose my head
I lose my head and things get said I never should have said
Sometimes I get housed
Housed soused and shoot off my mouth
And sometimes I kick it out, and I don't know what I'm talkin' about
I don't know what I'm talking about
You know, I've made mistakes, I've had my ups and downs
My ins and outs, my share of bad breaks
But when it's all been said and done
I raise my beer and I swear God it's been fun...
Good God oh my God good God good God good God good God god it's been fun!back to top
Jump Through the Hoops
Wake up and shake myself out of bed again
Shaking the day down in my head and then
It's up and out, rise and shine, on the double
No time to slack, attack, and tackle the trouble
Shake myself out of bed again
No time to stop and assess, can't let it grind to a halt
Can't stop and look at the mess and then find out it's my fault
I can't stop for a single minute
I know hell, well, I'm living in it
No time to stop at all, I've got to jump through the hoops
My job, well, it's a nine to five nightmare
I'm serving whiskey, stale wit, and beer
Come on in, how've you been? have I met ya?
What'll it be now, what can I get ya?
My job, well it's a nightmare
And every day from nine to five I'm there
No time to stop and assess, can't let it grind to a halt
Can't stop and look at the mess and then find out it's my fault
I can't stop for a single minute
I know hell, well, I'm living in it
No time to stop at all, I've got to jump through the hoops
Roll over, sit up and beg
Well I'd much rather lie down and play dead
Here comes another hoop
Holidays have got to be the worst
I've seen so many I've got it well rehearsed
Joy to the world, hark the hey, let me hear it
Deck the halls, trim the tree, that's the spirit
Holidays are not for me, chop down the tree
They've got to be the worst
I'm old and set in my ways, no stopping now, it's a shame
But in my much younger days I'd stop and I'd take the blame
I'm alright if I don't know and can't see
I'll live in hell, till the day, that they plant me
No time to stop at all, I've got to jump through the hoops
Roll over, sit up and beg
Well I'd much rather(3x)...lie down and play dead
All over so long my friend
So long all over the endback to top
