Track Name: Sucker For Fairytales
Sucker For Fairytales

Once upon a time my heart got broken badly
but instead of blaming her, I did blame love
Like been cast a spell, no leprechaun, no wishing well,
no fairy and no dust to bring me luck

You will never catch a rainbow, when you're looking for the gold
Never find a happy end, if you don't believe what's told
Love is just no fairytale, or we are just too old
But I am just a sucker, I am just a sucker, baby
Aren't we all just suckers for fairytales

Once upon a time my heart seemed to surrender
as I kissed this girl and tried to wake her up
Put in effort, keep on yearning, as the spinning-wheel kept turning
But I never got on top

Never look into the future, when you look into her eyes
Never look into a mirror, when its telling only lies
Don't eat fruit you get from strangers, what you give is what you get
I can only say that I'm just a sucker, baby
Aren't we all just suckers for fairytales

Oh my god, they put a spell on you
Can't get you out of my mind
Oh my god they put a spell on you
Kiss me now and hold me; Once upon a time
I'm a sucker for fairytales; Once upon a time
I'm a sucker for fairytales; Once upon a time
I'm a sucker for fairytales; Once upon a time

Once upon a time my reason said surrender
but instead I did march of and fell in love
I'm no knight in shining armor, she could only do me harm
Least I could expect it to get rough

You must clim to highest tower, if you want to get real high
You must fight the biggest dragon, and now wish you don't get fried
Don't get the “happily ever after”, when the storyteller fails
But I am just a sucker, I am just a sucker baby
Aren't we all just suckers?
Don't call me a sucker
Well, I am just a sucker for fairytales
Track Name: The End Of Laissez-Faire
The End of Laissez-Faire

It's the end of laissez-faire, again
We've come upon the same mistakes, but hey, we are just men
It wasn't greed, just speculation
the Greater Fool, extrapolation
Bathing in the bubbles of our wealth

It's the end laissez-faire, again
No point in pointing fingers, we do the best we can
In fact for years we did our best in making interest
More interesting we took a little chance

May I suggest an aneurysm of all capitalism
It's like a surgeon has to cut
In simply everything we've got

I think it's time we stop injections
You can't undo with right intentions

Our state of anaesthesia has slipt into amnesia,
the whole of all eurasia, injected to dysplasia,
I'm suffering aphasia, now get me to fantasia

It's the end of laissez-faire, again!?
It's the end of joy de vivre, but still je ne regret rien
In fact I don't regret a single dime
I've got a gut feeling my stocks are going to climb
So if you want to join me, get in line
And let's dive into the bubbles, dive into the bubbles
let's dive into the bubbles of our wealth
Track Name: The Crash
The Crash

Little Humpty Dumpty sat on the wall
for some time he enjoyed that sight
Little Humpty Dumpty didn't worry at all
Would he'd fall, he'd be alright

But it's a crash, did Humpty fall?
It's a crash, he had a fall
And no King's horses, no King's men
couldn't help Humpty at all

Oh, the crash was heavy and the ground so hard
He just couldn't understand
He never took a warning, only took the chance
Now he head-first hit the sand

Little Mrs Dumpty shed a couple of tears
then she took care of the mess
She had always warned him “What goes up must come down,
Climb too high, ensure your crash”

Well, it's a crash, he had a fall
It's crash, he reached the floor
And no King's horses, no King's men
couldn't help him anymore
Track Name: Way To Go
Way to go

There's a girl in my bed, and I'm filled with regret
'cos this is not supposed to be
There's a smile on her face and I'm filled with disgrace
of myself, what have I done

I don't know which way to go
I don't know which page to turn
I cannot believe I did this
I don't know which way to go
I don't know which page to turn
This cannot be true

See this girl, still undressed, and my life seems such a mess
but I can't look any other way
As she lays in our sheets and I'm thinking of my deeds
I guess there's nothing left and nothing left to say

I don't know.....

Tell me love are you still there for me
This ain't the first time that I fell
Tell me love is there still hope for me
This ain't the first time that I fell
Tell me now, will you forgive me
Tell me now I still can see
Tell me now, then I am sorry
Tell me now or set me free
Track Name: Love You Anyway
Love You Anyway

I want to love you
Every day
But you make it so hard to do
When you say we are through
I'm such a fool

I've said I'm sorry
But you seem to regret
All we had

But don't take it out on me
There's nothing wrong you see
Don't call me crazy, well I might just be crazy for you

Don't leave me out in the rain when I'm shouting your name
I'm not crazy, well I might just be crazy for you

Don't say you didn't feel all we had, it was real
Don't say you never felt loved

Cos I've got some news for you
You might have said we are through
I will love you anyway


I, I'll keep on dreaming
But you, you were woken up
And messed me up


But don't take it out.....


Don't leave me out....
Track Name: Wasted Love
Wasted Love

Let me tell you about a girl that I once really loved
She gave me everything at time I thought that I was really dreaming of
But another sunny day I saw her with another guy
I knew all the things she said they must have been just lies

She said: I'm sorry for your pain but things will never be the same again
I swear I really loved you, Love, but now I'm falling for another man
Is love just a funny feeling, not easy to resist
And true love a different story, it might not even exist

But sometimes I think of you
and I hope you'll do so too
Because I just can't bear the thought of wasted love

Now here's the story of another woman who took possession of my dreams
She said it might not feel like love but it just isn't always what it seems
Let's not wast our time together, it might be al we've got
I dare not admit it, oh but you can't deny it's not

She said:
Do you truly understand that everything we felt was meant to be
Are singing songs of love, or are you singing in a different key?
Oh love's such a funny feeling, not meant to be or to be understood
And this love no different story, but it felt real and it felt so good

So sometimes I think of you
and I hope you'll do so too
'cause I just can't bear the thought of wasted love
Track Name: Past Perfect
Past Perfect

You broke my heart, my head
while you're stabbing my back
You stole my love, insane
and now you handcuff my brain

You broke my heart, my soul
when you ruined it all
You took my pride in ease
left me down on my knees

Can't you see that I don't want to hurt you
But I hate to hurt myself a little more
I never said that you and me were trouble
But whatever's been the past it's history

You broke my...

Well I don't want to live my life the wrong way
But I might not want to live your life at all
Can't you see I try to do
what seems to be for me and you inavoidable

You broke my...

Instrumental

You broke my...

You broke my...
Track Name: She Can't Breathe
She Can't Breathe

When she's down and low
And she tells you so
There is nothing in her world, except for emptyness and hurt
Please, do comfort her

When she's down and out
Wants to scream and shout
It may not seem to make much sense, but what she needs is just a friend
Please, do comfort her

Everything is not what matters most my love
I know, it's true
I would take your place, just if I could my love
I do love you
But if you hold too tight she can't breathe

When her love seems gone
And just on and on
Every single night the less you love the more the fight
please, do comfort her

When she's almost lost
And at every cost
it cannot be the easy way, the things she does, the words you say
please, do comfort her

Everything is not what matters most my love
I know, it's true
I will take the fall instead of you, my love
I do love you
But if you hold too tight she can't breathe

She can't breathe
Track Name: Don't Let Go
Don't Let Go

What goes up must come down
The dangers of a little learning
Now you can't always be around
and prevent the leaves from turning

Take a look outside where grass is growing
and the wind is blowing in your face

Life is not without tears,
you told me after I had fallen down
Face the facts, face your fears
On your feet, or just keep crawling

Take a look outside where the sun is hiding
don't you feel like riding off

No, don't let go
You won't let go
Please don't let go
And if you do please let me know, cause I'm so scared I'd might fall down

What goes around comes around
I guess I never saw it coming
Hold me tight, let me go
Learn to walk and then start running

Take a look outside where the girls are playing
Go ahead, I'm right behind

No, don't let go you said you'd never let me
You won't let go you said you'd never let me
Please don't let go you said you'd never let me go
And if you do please let me know - I'll let know - cause I'm so scared I'd might fall down

No, don't let go you said you'd never let me
You won't let go you said you'd never let me
Please don't let, please don't let, please don't let go
And if you do please let me know,
Please let me know cause I'm still scared I'd might fall down
Track Name: Anymore
Anymore

She looked into the mirror but couldn't see herself
Her eyes looking back, thought what the hack this is not me
Painting the past on a loosening canvas
Behind a mask day by day, then she said

I don't want to do it
No, I don't want to do it
I don't want to do it anymore

After forty days and forty nights
She washed away, clean all this madness
Now is nature playing this trick on us
Or are we going down in blindnes

Say: I don't want to do it
No, I don't want to do it
I don't want to do it anymore

Free another, holy water, let her know you saw
her beauty before she puts that mask on

Free all the pretty girls
Free all the pretty girls
Free all the pretty girls

'Cos I don't want to do it
No, I don't want to do it
I don't want to do it anymore
Track Name: Uncertainly
Uncertainly

Say you'd walk through a town and you could go anyway you'd like
Would you stay, would you go, would you take a hike
I wouldn't know where to look, where to find the road you didn't take or took
It's out of sight and out of mind

What is the point you're showing?
Where is the logic going?
Then what the hell we're doing?
There's no way of knowing where we came and where the hell we go

It's suggested that at rest, when asserted not a single force,
things will stay, or on their way, for better or for worse
But when you know where it's at you might just as easily forget
where it's been once you've seen it's out of sight

What is the point you're showing? (there is no way of knowing)
Where is the logic going? (there is no way of knowing)
Then what the hell we're doing? (there is no way of knowing)
There's no way of knowing where we came from and where the hell we go

Now it's said that our universe expands like apple pie
But that might sound off topic in this song
I just like to state we'll never know exactly where we are
Even Einstein, being right, thought he was wrong

What is the point you're showing? (there is no way of knowing)
Where is the logic going? (there is no way of knowing)
Then what the hell we're doing? (there is no way of knowing)
There's no way of knowing where we came from and where the hell we go
