Track Name: Mr.Shuffle
If you’re sittin’ home alone and you need some rhythm
Here comes a man… better known as Mr.Shuffle
And he says “I ain’t gonna mess with n.2’s, ‘cose n.1 they learn in my school”
“If you don’t believe a word, check and see, check on yourself..I’m the best player in the world!”

Shuffle is a man with a guitar in his hand
He says that r’n’r is a usless thing
He’s friend with this and that because of his act
Some say he even knows the president
Someone stole his equipment but he’s still n.1
Sooner or later Mr.Shuffle’s gonna conquer the world

How come he’s so alone?

And if you ring his bell you fall under a spell
Shook a lot of hands and got stories to tell
Enter in his car you’ll feel like a star
He ain’t got no license but he could go far
‘Cose the officer’s a friend, he even makes amends
And nobody fucks with Mr.Shuffle anyway…

So How come he’s so alone?

If you’re sittin’ home alone, and watch a stupid poster on the wall….
Track Name: Ghettoblaster suicide
I don’t deserve any of the things that I’ve got
I don’t deserve any of the things that I wish for
You make me walk, you make me crawl
You got me down on my knees
Still, I don’t deserve that you put your eye on me
Your time is money and I’m so incomplete
You got your masterplan and I feel like a thief
I’m stuck inside of your box and I don’t have the key… set me free

You got me hanging on a phone
You got me criyng all alone
I keep on looking in your direction babe
And since I don’t know…… (why?)
It’s just a long time
You got a mystical heart
I don’t deserte what I’ve got

I think that I deserve all of the things that are out of reach
Must be a karmic thing
Must be the turning of the wheel
You don’t know what you got until you loose it
But you play with fire until you burn
Still, I don’t deserve that you put your eye on me
Your time is money and I’m so incomplete
You got your masterplan and I feel like a thief
I’m stuck inside of your box and I don’t have the key… set me free
Track Name: There's a woman on the bench
I flip the coin to see my chances
And she stares at me like I’m some kind of alien…
Somethin’ very innocent to say, about the weather or whatever sticks to my mind…now it’s time!
Say wassup’ girl, how come you’re all alone?
She says nothing but I know that she would be mine
I offer her some cigarette and she turns her head
Little by little, she’s drivin’ me insane
I don’t want to give it up I don’t want to say goodbye
By the end of evening the girl is mine…now it’s time!

And I say hey girl, I know you like latinos,
Well I’m “RUDY” reborn!
Hey girl, I know you like tattoos and I have a little dragon that keeps away the blues
Let me show it to you…

There’s a woman on the bench and soon she will learn my name
‘Cose love never failed me yet
And I think that I need some respect
I don’t want to give it up ecc…
Track Name: Girl on a pedestal
Girl on a pedestal, I know what’s on your mind
Jaws about to drop another time
Your point is clear so is your deal
There’s no stop from now
Days of youth are waiting… take a bow
Girl, is your love in vain or your lover in a frame
So afraid to call things by their name

Where’s the news when you start all over
We’re waitin’ for a curse when you smile and fool around
Where’s the news when you start all over
Well put on a warm cover, it’s time to forget

Girl on a pedestal I know your next bold move
This is your happy hour and you have no time to loose
Come on little sister, time’s a little blister on your fingertip
Life is a sweet and sour trip and you know a couple of tricks
Girl on a pedestal, I know what’s on your mind
Jaws about to drop another time

Where’s the news when you start all over
We’re waitin’ for a curse when you smile and fool around
Where’s the news when you start all over
Well put on a warm cover, and start to look around

Start to look around
Track Name: Walk of fame - part two
An eye for an eye and a thoot for a thoot
You give all yourself, and you gotta loose
Well you know my brother, it’s not news
You have to pretend to be their best friend
When everyone knows to play the game
Well you know my brother, it’s not news

See them on walk of fame
They got money&women
And now you wanna feel the same

An eye for an eye and a thoot for a thoot
They give you the cards but you don’t know the rules
Well you know my brother, it’s not news

See them on walk of fame
They got money&women
And now you wanna feel the same

See all those people 24/7
Good sheeps in queue to get tikets for heaven
And you know that no one’s gonna find a cure for them blues

See them on walk of fame…
Track Name: I.O.U. everything
I still rember that room and my feeling for you
I still remeber that fear
You had cold hands, I just flew
I still rember that look in your eyes
Telling me that after all it was no surprise
Although I never take that for granted, I’ve been locked in a maze with all my ignorance
I do trashed what’s inside of you, I did not understand

That I owe you everything…and love must be somethin’ hid within

Is this the end of the line?
Or is it just a useless try?
You called the tune you paid the piper
You knew it, yes you knew it all the time
I still rember that room and my feeling for you
No, I’ll never take it for granted, and I know about deliverance
But I’ll keep on telling you, there’s no need to an end

Cose you know I owe you everything… but love must be somethin’ hid within
Track Name: Bright,Slow
Now that you are miles away
You’d left me alone with the devil
I’m sinking in the snow
I can’t find a steady job
Tried to write a novel
But in the end I’m seein’ double
I need a comfort word
I think that I’ll pick up the phone

Don’t tell me to stay because I got my eyes glued to the door
And I’m concentrating calculating on the best way to get home

Now there’s a lot of people talkin’ and a stinkin’ crowded room
With Jesus on their mouth
And a big collection of clues
Don’t send me no letters babe I can’t read too good
This trial is a fake
And the whole world knows I’m guilty

But it was you who stabbed me in the back
It was you who told me to relax
It was you to say this isn’t a dawn
On any given Sunday we are coming down
In this long way to spring and I’m wandering

It was cold the other day when I was waiting in the hall
All I did was thikin about you naked but it didn’t get much warm
Gotta head of troubles and I gotta face the whole afternoon
I need a confort word, my hope hangs at the phone

But it was you who stabbed me in the back
It was you who told me to relax
It was you to say this is the end of nothing
It’s the world who calls us into something
Is it a long space to fill?

Well I’m still wandering…
Track Name: Poison in your drink
I saw you with a glass in your hand
When you’re off from work your real job begins
You should have told me that this was your mission
No stupid lies for me to listen
I should have told you where I’m coming from
I come from the land where what you do is wrong
The bartender knows what to do
He’s not the only one who’s lookin for soul food
And everybody stares into eyes of green
They’re talkin ‘bout work but their thoughts are obscene
So when you swallow the next olive and you smile with self-confidence
A voice in your head keeps repeating :
Dont’ be surprised if one day you’ll find…
poison in your drink
poison in your drink
poison in your drink

I saw you… you had power in your hands
You’re a goddes with a cigarette
Figernails are shining back
Well keep on blowing minds with ambition
You’re still in time to learn about submission
Such an ipnotist, but in the end nobody remembers your name
Ask yourself about that
The bartender knows what to do
He’s not the only one who’s lookin for soul food
And everybody stares into eyes of green
They’re talkin ‘bout work but their thoughts are obscene
So when you swallow the next olive and you smile with self-confidence
A voice in your head keeps repeating :
Dont’ be surprised if one day you’ll find…
poison in your drink
poison in your drink
poison in your drink
