Track Name: Be Quiet
BE QUIET

walked out, climbed a mountain
got a tremendous view
all sounded nice
and so peaceful too
and then a jetplane flew over me

gonna get me some cotton
to put it into my ears
it’s sunday morning
a quarter past eight
big kids make some shotgun noise

it was on that long bus ride
from salt lake to el paso
I was so tired
and a man in front of me
was talking and talking and he could not stop

oh please be quiet, that noise is killing me
oh please be quiet, that noise is killing me

Lyrics and Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Dry Throat
DRY THROAT

in my town they treat me
treat me like a clown
in my town they cheat me
the town of my birth goes down
patronizing treatment over you and you and me
leads to isolation, separation, desperation
cuts off my will makes a funny fool out of me
all these days and all these dreary nights

I see christ of cheese
nailed to every door
sanctimoniousness
written on the floor
meek as a lamb I have to ask them first
when I only want wanna quench my thirst
holy shit my head will burst
this is politics at its worst

easter wednesday midnight
nineteen-ninetyeight (1998)
self-determination
is far out of sight
any boring midnight everytime the same
law and order, prohibition, cops are running wild
the keyword is oppression I ask you where’s your pride
take a look around and walk to the other side

jealous neighbours old or young
frustrated, false and mean
behind their curtains wasting time
controlling every scene
they cannot take it easy, they hate to celebrate
to be a party-pooper is a lousy fate
they feel great satisfaction when bad mood’s rising up
don’t listen to their grousing and fun will never stop
don’t listen to their grousing and fun will never stop
dry throat – dry throat

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Crosscheck
CROSSCHECK

battlefield is shiny fighters fast and tough
you cannot walk you’re sliding wind blows cold and rough
the trouble is a black one slick and small and gone
before you reach to touch a quicker one is on

but crosscheck is so painful to everybody’s body
especially on your nose and mine!

the stick is in your own hands this game is now for real
the trouble is in motion and scorers get the deal
the crowd is yelling deafning: «we wanna see some blood!»
red blisters on a white field mood is heating up

but crosscheck is so painful to everybody’s body
especially on your neck and mine!

high sticking, slashing, crosscheck
too much for your bones
spearing, boarding, kneeing
every victim moans
hooking, tripping, charging
too much for your mind
you want big trouble come on
come on come on you’ll find!

but crosscheck is so painful to everybody’s body
especially on your back and mine!

Lyrics and Music by Mario Giovanoli
Track Name: Sitting Joe
SITTING JOE

I am sitting on a lake
sometimes dreaming sometimes awake
my mind drifting there
over water into air
mother earth holds me tight
father fire wants to fight

torture and disease
endless war instead of peace
boundless greed bears flaming hate
is this really mankind’s fate?
dinosaurs and galaxies
sudden death – eternities

polluted skies (and) infected seas
contamineted rivers and trees
all animals dead and gone
insects on the run
mother earth in agony
father fire raging free

I’m still sitting on that lake
no more dreams I’m wide awake
feeling chaos everywhere
terrifying dark despair
turning back is not in sight
our future filled with fright

plants and creatures know
without water and air they can’t grow
’cause air is the earth of the sea
fire without air can’t be
water and earth, fire and air
sometimes I think we should care!

Lyrics and Music by Mario Giovanoli
Track Name: Smog Alarm
SMOG ALARM

I look around it’s everywhere
millions of cars pollute the air
I’m going out in my poison-proof-dress
smog alarm is everyday’s stress
long live the car production
don’t care about our planet’s destruction

mobility became a nightmare
city traffic is warfare
leaving for a holiday in the sunshine
for five hours you stand in line
the choice is mine: BP or shell
racing on the road to hell

so many little children died
by carbon monoxide
a total failure of policy
fuckin’ lies and dirty tricks

ruin the land with freeways
self destruction of the human race
millions of cars you cannot stop
one by one we gonna blow ‘em up
you tell your doctor that you feel ill
time to write down your last will

so many little children died
by carbon monoxide
a total failure of policy
fuckin’ lies and dirty tricks

Lyrics by Marcel Reich / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: McKenzie Highway
MCKENZIE HIGHWAY

I’ve been out to the east
well I’ve been out to the west
been drivin’ up north
that was the best

drivin’ in a Pontiac
dust is all over
got a flat tire
and still hundred miles to go

meetin’ indians
full of booze
drinkin’ ’cause
there’s nothin’ to lose

fishin’ in a creek
swimmin’ in a lake
pickin’ up some mushrooms
as much as I can take

on McKenzie highway, on McKenzie highway
oh I’ve been rollin’, rollin’
rollin’ on a dusty gravel road

Lyrics and Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Tiny Little Secret
TINY LITTLE SECRET

I know a little secret that turns on all my lights
I call it when I’m sick at heart and days are dark as nights
this is my tiny secret so powerful and bright
brings good vibrations back to me if hope is not in sight

laughter is best medicine breathe in is essential
laughing is contagious breathe out is outstanding
breathing makes me sing and shout dance and play long and loud
music makes me high and proud and that’s what it’s all about

a tiny little secret for everyone for free
you cannot buy you cannot sell this mystic fantasy
my tiny little secret secluded and so shy
needs sometimes just a sturdy push please let it fly not die

laughter is best medicine breathe in is essential
laughing is contagious breathe out is outstanding
breathing makes me sing and shout dance and play long and loud
music makes me high and proud and that’s what it’s all about

this tiny little secret has wings as big as skies
it shows me possibilities to stand against the lies
I love my little secret it’s wonderful and mine
I have the opportunity to share it any time

open wide your mouth fill your lungs with air
a thunderstorm is coming up cleans out the athmosphere
I’m doubled up with laughter you hear my happiness
harmonious sounds and lyrics will conquer times of stress

Lyrics and Music by Mario Giovanoli
Track Name: Gravedigger
GRAVEDIGGER

so mad and lonely so lonely is the brave
so mad and only lonely he’s digging his own grave

we are our own gravedigger
we have our own finger on the trigger
we are our own gravedigger
stronger higher quicker longer bigger sicker

so sad and lonely so lonely is the brave
so sad and only lonely a hopeless digging slave

we are our own gravedigger
we have our own finger on the trigger
we are our own gravedigger
stronger higher quicker longer bigger sicker

so dead and lonely so lonely is the brave
so dead and only lonely nobody’s here to save

we are our own gravedigger
we have our own finger on the trigger
we are our own gravedigger
stronger higher quicker longer bigger sicker

so brave and lonely so brave and only mad
so brave and lonely so brave and only sad
so brave and lonely so brave and only dead...

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Dreams Of Doom
DREAMS OF DOOM

wake up in my room with dreams of doom
in my head and I’ll be soon as well as dead
but I try to change my view
try to step out of queue
and I know I know I know I’m breaking through
and I know I know I know I’m breaking through

wake up in my room with dreams of doom
in my head and I’ll be soon as well as mad
but I try to change my blow
try to feel my body grow
and I know I know I know I know I do
and I know I know I know I know I do

wake up from my dream and suddenly
I can feel what I'm looking for
‘cause I try to change my mind
try to walk on edges blind
so I learn I learn I learn I learn to find
so I learn I learn I learn I learn to find

my left side is my right side my left side is my right
my left side is my right side and both are in my sight
I’m looking for the third one I’m looking for the one
I’m looking for the third one the fourth and fifth come too

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Downhill Rider
DOWNHILL RIDER

downhill rider crazy man
down down down
downhill rider crazy man
as fast as you can
snow and ice whizzing ‘round your head
a little too late (is) driving you mad

downhill rider crazy guy
down down down
downhill rider crazy guy
faster with every try
spinning brain and breaking bones
on a one fifty-two point sixty-nine run

downhill rider crazy boy
down down down
on your skinny little toy
down and down and down
prick on ice and balls in heat
with the taste of death on a white linnen sheet

downhill rider crazy fool
down down down
yes you are a crazy fool
tacky, slick and cool
get your ego goin’ your body in gear
you win you lose – you’ll be in fear!

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Moondaynight
MOONDAYNIGHT

swimming in a raindrop, waiting for the sun
the sun will not shine
burning in a sunbeam, waiting for the rain
the rain will not fall
only the moon staring down with a grin
telling you: «rock through the nights and you’ll win!»

shaking on a hailstone, waiting for the snow
the snow will not cover
floating on a snowflake, waiting for the hail
the hail will not rattle
only the moon staring down with a grin
telling you: «rock through the nights and you’ll win!»

sun and rain, snow and hail – don’t look for or you will fail
sun and rain, snow and hail – moonshine leads you on your trail
moondaynight
shine on bright
do not be a fool, look up to the moon
leading through the doom

riding on a moonbeam, rocking in a fancy town
it’s moondaynight
dreaming in the moonshine, rolling into nightmares
it’s moondaynight
and still the moon in the sky with a smile
laughing at you while you creep and crawl blind

sun and rain, snow and hail – don’t look for or you will fail.
sun and rain, snow and hail – moonshine leads you on your trail
moondaynight
shine on bright
shine on bright moondaynight
all right!

Lyrics and Music by Mario Giovanoli
Track Name: Reason For The Hitch
REASON FOR THE HITCH

when I look through my keyhole
what do you think I’ll see
there I can see a fat mole
diggin’ a hole for me
mole thinks about the black hole
reaching from pole to pole
now mole looks through YOUR keyhole
so many holes to see
look look at that old fat mole
dig diggin’ holes for all
this mole digs just our own hole it’s
the reason for the hitch
