Track Name: I'd Like You To Know
Do you know what it's like to be raped
Like to be raped of passion?
Do you know what it's like to be left
Without a youth of your own?

I'd like you to know
That's why I go away

Do you know what it's like to feel
Like a child that's afraid of the sun?
I'm a child, but your arms are too weak
Your arms are too weak to hold me

I'd like you to know
That's why I go away
Track Name: Outside They're Dreaming
I'm sleeping in my boots again, I'm living off of cigarettes and words again
There's tobacco on my lips again, the cinema shows pictures from inside again
Try to forget all the world
Try to forget that outside they are dreaming, too

Well, I'm writing down all my thoughts, and then I feel alone and I walk out of the bar again
The streets are cold, we stumble through the night, and then we wait for the bus again
Try to forget all the world
Try to forget that outside they are dreaming, too

But there's nowhere to go, nowhere to stay
We face the longest of all our days
And the sun won't go down until we found the place
But there's nowhere to go, nowhere to stay

The sun shines through my window and wakes me up, sweat dried on my brows again
I've been sleeping in my boots again, it's far too late to dream and dream of you again
Try to remember all the world
Try to remember that outside they are dreaming, too

But there's nowhere to go, nowhere to stay
We face the longest of all our days
And the sun won't go down until we found the place
But there's nowhere to go, nowhere to stay
Track Name: Empty Bottles, River St.
You can call me, I won't be out tonight
When I told you I'd be there for you I wasn't joking
There's empty bottles all over the floor
Grinning at me like I've made a mistake
Did I mistake you?

I told my friends that I wanted to stay at home
And read a book, but I just stare at the phone
The rooms are cold and the fridge is empty
I think I will wait for another hour
Then I'll probably go to bed

The TV sings me a love song
While I'm falling asleep
The phone stays quiet

It's getting late, the movies are over
The soaps are, too, the heroes went to bed
Somehow it's cold in here, maybe I'm just tired
I'll have another beer and then I'll turn off the lights

The TV sings me a love song
While I'm falling asleep
The TV sings me a love song
The phone stays quiet
Track Name: There Is No Such Thing As Canada
A deeper silence, white and blue as the water flows
I think about you, and you in a land that nobody knows
Oh can you hear me?
Do you still sing our songs?

It's not quite maybe, and candy on the tapes we made
Dressed up in dreams was our favourite game to play
You did me this favour
You drank with me to the death of a clown

You are still with us
In all the songs that you played and smiles
We hear that you're happy, so we're, too

Not many letters, but out of sight ain't out of mind
It's so much love, our blood kin, still alive
We wish you were with us
Are you still getting closer to fine?

You are still with us
In all the songs that you played and smiles
We hear that you're happy, so we're, too
Track Name: Ginny's Toys
It is late in the evening
Ginny is playing with the boys
All the good friends are leaving
Ginny hands me her toys

I don't want to leave her
Ginny is sweet and warm
I always want to stay with her
I don't want to go home

Sirens scream through the evening
Ginny got killed by the boys
I got no one to believe in
I broke all Ginny's toys

Oh, no one will miss me
Oh, when I have gone
Ginny has always been with me
Ginny has taken me home
Track Name: Black Daddy, White Boy
Well
Track Name: Another Beautiful Day
I woke up from sleep late this evening
And the city seemed new to me
All the good friends, they are leaving
My smile has set them free
I lit a cigarette in the moonlight
My tears had dried on my cheeks
Some are leaving for Berlin
And some are leaving for Greece

But the silence's still singing its songs for me
I'm happy to hear you're so wild and so free
And that you will never come back to me
It's nice to be out here

Remember the old man at the corner
With his rags and his thumb in his mouth
He's left for some place or other
Since the lights have gone out
I talked to him late one evening
And asked him what I should do
But he just couldn't answer
For his eyes were pinned on you

So I'll clean up my room and I throw it all away
I guess this will take less than one day
And I'll burn all the things that you left on your way
To a place where everything's new

It will be easy now that you've all gone
If you got no choice there's nothing you can do wrong
And if there is no war all the men can rest
I guess I have found some peace

Now I have time for all the letters
That I promised to write since three years
I can sleep all day, so please do not stay
And please, my dear, shed no tears
One thing: You know where to find me
If you return some lucky day
Maybe you won't recognize me
But I'll be the one who always stayed

So I'll open the door and I'll throw it all out
Except for this one thing of which you're so proud
I'll keep it, my darling, if you allow
I'll keep your love
Track Name: A Very Physical Love Song
Sorry darling, there's not much I can say
Just a question: Have you ever been fucked in this way?
There's not much I can give, but with a little luck
You ain't never had somebody better to fuck

Oh and this is my sorrow, and this is my fear:
If you had, then tomorrow you will not be here
I ain't got no future, and I'm afraid this makes you sick of me
I ain't got no hope, but I still have my dick

We never talk, we just groan at night
But if we ever tried to I believe that we'd fight
Until somebody bleeds, and it won't be you
So I fuck you again, there's nothing else I can do
My darling

Don't ever leave me, don't ever go
You are the last one I have, don't you know
You are the last one around here
So please shut my mouth and fuck away my fear
Track Name: Au Revoir À Jamais, Les Enfants
And now I'm leaving your life
Does it feel like there should be some apology
Now all is wrong that was right
I guess you could say it's lost some quality all in all

There's just one way you can choose
And some say that you either win or lose
And I love the sweet smell of your hair
But frankly, there wasn't much more there between us

And I will leave with no trace
Like you left no trace in the hearts that you conquered
Like a girl without grace
Like some idle machine you go on gossiping around yourself

But I'm free to ride the wind
To sing a song without being home at nine
I'm free to talk aloud
About politics, feelings and little queer smiles in the rain

And now I'm leaving your life
Does it feel like there should be some apology
Now all is wrong that was right
I guess you could say it's lost some quality all in all
