Track Name: Small Mind
All the empty words flying out of your mouth
and into my small mind

All the little birds are flying around
in the little blue sky

Never mind the things that they might tell you
go and find your own truth
Track Name: Everything Is Full Of Capital
There is no more coffee left
you have to go and buy some
to buy coffee you need money
money is bad because it's everywhere

Everything is full of capital
everything is full of shit
everything is full of smoke and noise and my voice
smoke and noise and my voice

She lights a cigarette
in the room where we could drink coffee
now she's going to the internet
that's the first thing you do in the morning

Outside men are building houses
that makes a lot of noise
inside she's smoking a cirgarette
and i'm making music yeah
Track Name: Fire
I could use a little fire here
I could use a little fire here

You know it’s nice sitting here
On the balcony with you
But my feet are pretty cold
And I can see you’re shivering

We could use a little fire here
Uh what you say?
We could use a little fire here
There’s a nice fire place inside

I ain’t sure if you want me
Ain’t sure if I want you
I still assume that you’re lonely
And we could do each other good
So the wine keeps flowing down
Down our throats
Soon the bottle is empty
And I don’t want to be alone
I don’t want to be alone!

You know it’s nice sitting here
On the balcony with you
But my feet are pretty cold
And I can see you’re shivering

We could use a little fire here
Uh the crackling sound of wood
We could use a little fire here
And maybe a blanket
Track Name: A Little Disappointing
I tried to write a song yesterday
and I was
playing it through a couple of times
'till suddenly I knew
that it was nothing new
yeah it's been here before
this melody

that's why it's just a little disappointing this song
you know it's just a little disappointing this song

and you go
la la-la-la yes it is
yeah you go
la la-la-la yes indeed

I tried to talk to you yesterday
yes I was
and I wanted to express
my deepest inner emotions
but all the words i used
they didn't belong to me, no
they were culturally indoctrinated

that's why it's just a little disappointing this language
you know it's just a little disappointing this love
finally it's just a little disappointing this live

and you go
la la-la-la la la shopping
Track Name: Long Island Ice Tea
Darlin' I'm glad that we ate something
before we went to bed
not only to protect myself
from a huge hangover

but also to get something in my tummy
so that the love in there
wouldn't be on its own
creating a vacuum and implode

And I know that I sound
like a stupid singer-songwriter this time
I can't be serious about using those words
like love and speechless
but I am speechless over you

and you, you're a ghost
moving through this song
you're a fiction, you're a lie
and I can't help myself
but trying to invent you
and say:

why can't there be uncertainty in love
you know why is there only uncertainty in words
"it's time to mix things up", they say
and I want to believe them

but then again, they come from me
and not from you
no not from you
not from you
they don't come from you

so then let's have another
long island ice tea
with two straws this time
then our money's gone
and I didn't feel so small and useless
in quite an amount of time
and you just keep on smiling
that's so fucking wonderful

and I do the same
yes I do the same
uh I do the same
and I don't find myself
feeling quite as comfortable
as I supposed to feel
Track Name: White Men With Guitars
They gave me something to play with
it was a guitar
it was a guitar
They gave me something to play with
it was my dick
it was my own dick
They gave me a history of color
and it was white
it was asshole white

So don't you ever listen to white men playing guitars
They will only comfort you
They're in the service of capitalist money makers
And bourgeois values

They might tell you to burn down these houses
and they might tell you to tear down those banks
They'll romanticize theft and crime
because they say that the rich are the problem
yeah the rich are the problem (and always were)
They'll exploit the topics
of poverty and war
and they'll exploit the topics of enviromental damage

But they will only comfort you
they will only comfort you
just don't you imagine what you could do
if you would go out now
and forget about the beer
walk out to the next ATM
take all the money you've got
take it out there, take it out
and tell everybody around you
that they should do the same
so we could bring that system
we could bring that system down

WALK OUT TO THE NEXT ATM
TAKE ALL THE MONEY YOU'VE GOT
TAKE IT OUT THERE TAKE IT OUT THERE
AND EVERYBODY AROUNG YOU
TO DO EXACTLY THE SAME
WE WILL BRING THAT SYSTEM
WE WILL BRING THAT SYSTEM DOWN

But don't you ever listen to white men playing guitars
they are cynical assholes they are certainly cowards
cuz nobody who'll ever appear on a stage
will ever be radical enough
no they will not be radical enogh
and nobody who'll ever make a film or write a book
they will never be radical enough
they will never be radical enough
and nobody who'll ever put a work of art on display
they will never be radical enough
they will never be radical enough

no they will never be they will never be re- they will never be red- they will never radical enough

to take to take to take
that system down
tötö - tötö - tötö - tötö - to take, to take
that system down

So walk out, go out of this now
why are you still listening now
walk out to the next ATM
take all the money you've got
take it out there, take it out there
and tell everybody around you
that they should do the same
so we could bring that system
we could bring that system down

WALK OUT TO THE NEXT ATM
TAKE ALL THE MONEY FROM ALL THE BANK ACCOUNTS - ALL THE BANK ACCOUNTS
AND SELL ALL YOUR STOCKS
AND TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO DO THE SAME
WE SHOULD BRING THAT SYSTEM
WE SHOULD BRING THAT SYSTEM DOWN

GO! OUT! TO THE NEXT ATM
TAKE ALL THE MONEY YOU'VE GOT
TAKE IT OUT THERE - TAKE IT OUT THERE
AND EVERYBODY AROUNG YOU
THAT THEY SHOULD DO THE SAME
SO WE COULD BRING THAT SYSTEM
SO WE COULD BRING THAT SYSTEM DOWN

BUT DON'T LISTEN TO WHITE MEN WITH GUITARS
THEY WILL ONLY COMFORT YOU
AND THEY ARE CYNICAL ASSHOLES
SO SLEEP WELL
SLEEP THIGHT GOOD NIGHT GOOD NIGHT
