Love is the most overrated thing in the world (2x) You say you love me, I have doubts What you want is a Renfield A magic mirror on the wall Telling you you’re so pretty and so special Telling you you’re the only one ever worth longing for Love is the most overrated thing in the world (2x) You’d leap in front of a US drone for me But you can’t hide the boredom Whenever I tell you how I feel Great meaningful words they are so lightly thrown But your WTF face annihilates your credibility Love is the most overrated thing in the world (2x) I found your profile And liked it for a while But then I started reading your list of prerequisites Lines and lines of specifications As long as Apple's latest terms of service As long as Pink Floyd's technical rider As boring as the European constitution As goofy as Kanye West interviewing himself And finally came to the conclusion: Hey, what do you think you're Liv Tyler or something? Love is barely more than a four-letter word

Is there one thing in this life that is not fake ? Is there one thing in this world that is not made of plastic? Is there one thing in this life that is not fake ? Well if someone has found one, I’d like to get my hands on it For we have lost our sense of freedom It is now on sale on Amazon Along with all the things we used to hold dear We have lost all sense and wisdom It is now on sale on Amazon And we smile as we pay the price to have it near Is there one thing that you read that is no lie? Is there one thing left around that money cannot buy? Did they leave a single meadow not defiled? Or is this the final victory of the money-sucking junkies? We have lost our sense of freedom It is now on sale on Amazon Along with all the things we used to hold dear We have lost all sense and wisdom It is now on sale on Amazon And we smile as we pay the price to have it near Life is great fun, thanks amazon, you kill boredom all care has gone (2x) Now & forever We have lost our sense of freedom It is now on sale on Amazon Along with all the things we used to hold dear We have lost all sense and wisdom It is now on sale on Amazon And we smile as we pay the price to have it near

He will not rest until his work is done He will not spread his legs and lay down in the sun He will resist the comfort of a smile He’ll have no rest until the fight is won All is ahead He will not rest until his work is done He will stay strong against the temptation He won’t allow his hands to be idle Nothing can shake his dedication His hands are bleeding But still they work as hard His hands are bleeding But he won’t be discouraged Not now He has no idea when his time will come If he will ever know the satisfaction To let his fingers remain quiet for while To let his eyes embrace his creation His hands are bleeding But still they work as hard His hands are bleeding But he won’t be discouraged Not now

If hope is not hopeless and tears are not useless on this stony gound If will is not endless and god is not helpless can you hear the sound Devoid of all fears and sensations I wake up as the tide rolls in Someday our tears will pour down and feed the holy land Someday our tears will pour down and feed the stony gound If love isn’t restless then why does it fly from us as we lay down If god really hates us, then why did he throw us on this stony ground The trials that stand in the way we never had the time to share Someday our tears will pour down and feed the holy land Someday our tears will pour down and feed the stony gound If love it was harmless and wasn’t so reckless would you take my hand If behind the promise there were no more bruises would you sing my song The stars they shine brighter tonight they bear witness to the showdown The mask wears off, the faces come, the devil laughs inside The mask wears off and all around, you hear a wailing sound The stars they shine brighter tonight but by the morning I’ll be gone The devil smiles and winks an eye it’s only just begun Someday, I’ll cast my arms away and run into the sun

We’ve been lying on the sofa in the comfort of a love That has not made us cry Nursing this new love with the tenderness & care that you would give To a newborn child We’ve been flying for a while on the silken wings of a love That has not yet been tried Oblivious and blissfully unaware whether this love May stand the test of time Someday at some point One of us will tell a white lie And from that moment on, it will only go downward But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world Look at us, we have it all and we know we should feel so lucky Like we got a new toy We just laugh and seize the day, How could anything go wrong? How could it go wrong? Someday at some point One of us will be unkind And from that moment on, it will only go downward But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world Even though the rains are pouring and the weather’s foul to the point of absurdity You and I live in a bubble where the sun is never setting, where we are free Someday at some point One of us is bound to go wild And from that moment on, it will only go downward But right now, there’s no such thing as the rest of the world

Some say I’m a blessing, some say I’m a curse Everybody’s saying something, but my voice is never heard Many say I look threatening, like an inevitable outburst But if you would just stop driveling, here are a few words I had to run from the streets where I used to play when I was a child When the humming of the cars got replaced by the drums of artillery fire I hope you never know how it feels to lie down and close your eyes Wondering whether it’s gonna be your turn tonight. I am on your tv, every single day You simply shrug your shoulders and look the other way Clever people talking they’re on every screen Nobody wants to listen to the children’s screams I had to run from the streets where I used to play when I was a child When the humming of the cars got replaced by the drums of artillery fire I hope you never know how it feels to lie down and close your eyes Wondering whether it’s gonna be your turn tonight. But then again I would hate To stop clever talking You know so much better than I Where it is I came from and where I'm supposed to be going I know you’re wary of me you fear my dark intentions The blackness I have seen is beyond your imagination I had to run from the streets where I used to play when I was a child When the humming of the cars got replaced by the drums of artillery fire I hope you never know how it feels to lie down and close your eyes Wondering whether it’s gonna be your turn tonight.

I’ll never make promises again And if I do, please slap me hard I’m too tired to play these games I’ll never make promises again It’s never worth it and anyway They never last more than a day Hold me so dear while I shake this disease When I curl like an embryo again But if you choose to be free well it is plain to see I will not be waiting again Life flows like sand in my hands Let it flow down like a river To the sea of disappointment Cause every promise ever made Was only fulfilled by betrayal Deception and slow decay I have no more stories to tell I told a million times before And now I’m parched like a dead bone There’s always something you could say Something standing in the way But in the end there’s hell to pay Hold me so dear while I shake this disease When I curl again in shame and disarray Hold me so dear when I get to the point Where I can’t see myself in the mirror When I lie wide awake And I’m feeling homesick again Gather what remains and take me back where I belong Where the moon makes our shadows long The stupid stuff you say when you don’t think twice I’m about to pay for it all I lied to myself like I did with everybody else And I guess I’m just way too far gone and out Hold me so dear while I shake this disease And I shed the old skin I used to brag about When I lie wide awake And I’m feeling homesick again

There are wicked men who like to call for war And enough stupid men to go and fight for them They remember too late when their face hits the ground How it feels to hold a lover’s hand There are many gods and all they have to say Is go and kill for me, I don’t like how they pray I guess they are jealous as they will never know The sweetness of a skin when it glows You & me, under the sun Makes me feel like a lucky son of a gun You & me, under the sun Makes me feel I’m the only one There are men who hoard riches beyond any count Golden toys make en feel good the only way they can But when the reaper comes knocking at their door I wonder what it is they might have to show for But when you kiss me and send shivers down my spine It’s like an earthquake honey, I might just go blind Riches are weak and money is a plight I got enough to take you out tonight You & me, under the sun Makes me feel like a lucky son of a gun You & me, under the sun Makes me feel I’m the only one Love is the most Beautiful thing in the world You & me, under the sun Makes me feel like a lucky son of a gun You & me, under the sun Makes me feel I’m the only one

Wild lady you're a change in the weather You don't intend to make any prisoners I wanna drown in your long hair I wanna tame this feral stare I can't stand it anymore But I keep coming back for more Your love gives me such a thrill But your love makes me deeply ill Let's turn this world to rags I wanna ride baby, what a drag I can't stand it anymore But I keep coming begging for more You are the honey and the chili The fresh sparkling water The burning whiskey I can't stand it anymore But I keep coming with a smile for more Oh baby, be nice to me I will be nice to you Sweet baby be nice to me I will be very nice to you
