Track Name: A Bit Dark
Have you ever got the feeling
That you've been cheated
The ones you used to worship
Have all gone a bit satanic
But maybe that is just me
That's being conceited
Taking on a different course
Is hardly a cause for panic

I'm a little bit conceited
in my contention
That the new direction is
a path of least resistance
Even so I can't escape holding
too much tension
Between what there is now and
what was once there in abundance

So the caravan continues
No doubt about that
Notwithstanding all the dogs
Who still project a mean bark
Even then some turns are quite good
While others are bad
Why is that so I'm afraid
I'm still a bit in the dark
Track Name: Fading Shades 1012
One needs to be nourished
If one were to flourish
Also needs a shelter
To maintain one's welfare
In our time one needs money
For life to have a taste of honey
This necessitates work
to pull life through this murk

Certain types of work sadly
are valued rather badly
Often money does not spin
Not a nice state to be in
A lot of work is done for free
As if such labour grew on trees
Maybe one can work for exposure
Absent a threat of foreclosure

Now, why not guarantee
to meet our basic needs
Basic income for all folks
regardless of their strokes
To each according to his needs
Enabling abilities
To be used in autonomy
from wage labour's hegemony
Track Name: Ruby You're My Friend I Love You
Hey listen dear Guy,
Don't put your finger in the pie!
The meringuetan won't like it!
The meringuetan won't like it!
It's a monkey made of pie!
It's a monkey made of pie!

Pay attention dear Jocasta,
Don't put your finger in the pasta!
You will wake up the Spag-yeti!
You will wake up the Spag-yeti!
It's a big and noodly monster!
It's a big and noodly monster!
Track Name: Saatanaga voodis
Sa ära needma kipud neid kes pole sinu moodi
Justnagu oleks nad kõik Saatanaga ühes voodis
Kas tõesti paistad iseendale teistest parem
On sinusuguseid peavalu andnud meile varem
Miks tervet mõistust kipub asendama veendumus
Ei saa ju olla vaid kahte tüüpi arvamust

Kas tõesti näha on vaid kahte tooni: valge ja must
Ning kui, siis mis küll toetab seda veidrat arvamust
Et kõik on meie vastu, kes ei ole meie poolt
Moraalse puhtuse eest iga hinnaga kannad hoolt
Kuid enda kõrval teisi näha pole ju veel allakäik
Kui nii siis parem see kui jonnakas vähjakäik
Track Name: Merkuurimürgitus kaevupõhjas
"Ma kannan eksperimenti" ütleb manerist
"Ma olen sõltumatu" hüüab parempopulist
"Ma olen vabadusvõitleja" skandeerib terrorist
"Pooldan võrdset kohtlemist" vannub anti-feminist

"Sa väldid tööd" nii süüdistab sind paadunud tätšerist
Su ahnust halvaks paneb turufundamentalist
"Kus su saavutused" pinnib pursuikapitalist
"Sa vihkad eestlasi" karjub ksenofoobne rassist

C'est la vie
C'est la guerre 
C'est la vie
Sur cette terre

C'est la guerre
C'est la vie
Des gents sont
Etranges ici. 

Accepter les deviations
Supporter les aberrations
Non avoir pas aucun peur 
De ces que sont humains: erreurs.
Track Name: Loodan aga ei usu
Ma soovin, et mulle annaksid märku
Ent seda märguannet ei tule
Ma tean et leidub paljugi tarku
Kes ütlevad, et saa juba sest üle

Seda ma loodan, aga hästi ei usu
Siiski ma ootan, et kord see enam ei rusu

Ma lootsin, et sidet pidata saame
Ent hoopis vaikus meie vahele laskun'd
Ma tean, et oleks mõistlikkuse raames
Unustada rada, kus ma kunagi astun'd.
