Track Name: Capricorn
CAPRICORN

riding on a mountain high
powerful and also shy
fighting hard no time to die
flashing eye – burning sky

capricorn – bonebreaker, capricorn – troublemaker
capricorn – bonebreaker
capricorn

climbing up and down the stairs
while the sun begins to flare
rocks and ridges everywhere
horns are rising in the air

capricorn – bonebreaker, capricorn – troublemaker
capricorn – bonebreaker
capricorn

sliding over grey moraines
boiling blood in happy veins
takes a shower in the rain
horns protecting stubborn brain
flying on his woollen coat never creeping like a toad
eagles crossing vultures road horns attracting every goat

capricorn – capricorn – capricorn – capricorn

Track Name: Turn On Your Radio
TURN ON YOUR RADIO

turn on your radio, TV, tape’n’video
turn on your radio, TV, tape’n’video
square ears – square eyes
square minds – square lies
turn on your radio, TV, tape’n’video
turn on your radio, turn on your radio!

sun is shining down
can you see the sound?
sound from outer space
can you hear the face?
face is lifted up, face is lifted up
face is lifted up, stop stop stop

sun is shining down – down down down down down
sun is shining down – do you see the sound?
sound from outer space – din din din din din
sound from outer space – do you hear the skin?
skin is lifted up – lifted up enough
skin is lifted up – stop stop stop!

Lyrics and Music by Mario Giovanoli
Track Name: Love And Air
LOVE AND AIR

here comes a realistic tale ’bout love and life and food
’bout animals and cannibals and vegetarian mood
consumer-information’s not available I’m sorry
newspapers need sensations now listen to this story

today they say it’s BSE, foot and mouth disease
tomorrow swine and avian flu, yesterday ’twas rabies
I understood these messages and changed my eating habits
no beef, no pork, no snake, no stork, no chicken and no rabbits

what can I eat, what can I do, what can I believe?
today they say, tomorrow too, one sea of grief

with salad, fruit and mushrooms, vegetables and corn
I’ll be the last survivor, meat-eaters are forlorn
the shock came in the morning, quite frankly from the news
EHEC in soya-sprouts, man, then I got the blues!

what can I eat, what can I do, what can I believe?
today they say, tomorrow too, one sea of grief
I had a great idea so simple, good and smart
and now I live on love alone until I’ll fall apart
and now I live on love alone until I’ll fall apart

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Jolanda Casutt
Track Name: Weisenheimer
WEISENHEIMER

1. I am hungry I must eat
vegetables and lots of meat
roasted chicken sour-sweet
rice and noodles quick indeed

2. hundred people feel the same
it’s the reason why they came
to the MM-market here
high noon fills the atmosphere

3. there’s a man a real man
tells me loud what I can
and this man this real man
in the crowd is not my fan

4. he was here five steps before
checkin’ out all in the store
who is first and who is last
knows the future knows the past

5. he’s our watchman and our savior
full of wisdom and behavior
without him we’re all forlorn
we’re so lucky he was born

6. but the bus waits not for me
from discussion I must flee
and I run off to the street
in my ears a funny beat

REF weisenheimer shut up now
otherwise life shows you how
weisenheimer take a breath
otherwise it’ll be your death


Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Clearance Sale
CLEARANCE SALE

clouds are hanging threatening above
on its flight a pale infected dove
under its ragged and discoloured wings
millions of producers buying, selling things

clearance-sale – trash for food
clearance-sale – evil for good
push and shout it’s a clearance-sale
clearance-sale – make your choice
clearance-sale – pay the price
soul sold out at a clearance-sale

they don’t ask if you refuse or approve
corrupt grabbing hand protected by the government
overbearing arrogant self-crowned kings
their promised progress for mankind sinks

clearance-sale – trash for food
clearance-sale – evil for good
push and shout it’s a clearance-sale
clearance-sale – make your choice
clearance-sale – pay the price
soul sold out at a clearance-sale

blowing in the wind riders on the storm
this genetic change into a deadly norm
stinks to high heaven pollutes the deepest sea
drives the whole world crazy nobody can be free

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Green Blue Lake
GREEN BLUE LAKE

I’m gonna move (I’m gonna move)
I’m gonna move (I’m gonna move)
way out of this town (way out of this town)
way out of this town (way out of this town)

summer can be hot (and the) green blue lake is near

glimmering air covers the tar and the heat crawls up your leg
glimmering air covers the tar and the heat crawls up your leg

summer can be hot (and the) green blue lake is near

the shirt sticks to the body so I think I need a shower
the shirt sticks to the body so I think I need a shower

summer can be hot (and the) green blue lake is near

I’m gonna move (I’m gonna move)
I’m gonna move (I’m gonna move)
way out of this town (way out of this town)
way out of this town (way out of this town)

summer can be hot (and the) green blue lake is near
summer can be hot (and the) green blue lake is near

Track Name: Jack D.
JACK D.

I have a friend
His name is Jack
He knocks me down
And pushes me up
His face is black
You know it’s true
My nose is red
And I am blue

With Jack I paint my world in colours
cause life’s sometimes a bitch
You know I’m just a poor girl
But my honey is rich
He has a wife a house a friendly dog
and at the CIA a job but I am just head over heels in love with this cop

Oooh my friend Jack
This holy liquor
It makes me cry
And sometimes fly
It comforts me
You know it’s true
My nose is red
And I am blue

With Jack I paint my world in colours
Cause life’s sometimes a bitch
My favorite is a good man
But I’m a little witch
He has a wife a house a friendly dog
And at the CIA a job but I am so in love
I loose my head for this cop

Somewhere under the rainbow, I am blue
walk the line with Jack Daniels
And I dream of you...

Lyrics and Music by Jolanda Casutt
Track Name: Surviving The Game
SURVIVING THE GAME

surviving the game is the name of your fight
for the right to survive the shame it’s your blame
that you live take and give come and go
suck and blow love and hate it’s your fate
in your hands cruel romance

surviving the game is the name of your fight
for the right to survive the shame it’s your blame
that you live win and lose force and choose
rack and soothe bear and kill it’s your will
that your mind will be blind

surviving the game is the name of your fight
for the right to survive the shame it’s your blame
that you hope and despair extirpate and create
fighting wars against your source bloody fool

dance or die, don’t ask why
laugh or cry, I don’t mind
fall or fly, to the sky
or to hell, I feel well
born to live, not to fake
born to give, not only take
but take care and beware of yourself

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Solutions
SOLUTIONS

when a wolf attacks your herd
a rifle’s cheaper than alert
when a bear sleeps somewhere
extirpate its cozy lair
every bird that catches fish
steals the food out of your dish
spider, beetle, worm and fly
any animal, destroy!

when a shadow’s on your head
kill the clouds be that mad
when your sweat’s pouring down
kill the sun be a clown
when a drop makes you wet
kill the rain be upset
when you stumble and you fall
kill the ground, kill it all!

when a stranger’s in your town
don’t be slow to stab ’im down
when somebody’s not like you
shoot ’im down through and through
if your neighbour is a spy
hang ’im up hang ’im high
and a nation you don’t like
nuclear strike!

not one problem disappears
by the use of guns and spears
the solutions you will find
are located in your mind
all aggression, rage and hate
stop ’em now, it’s not too late
’cause compassion is a power and a peaceful seed
we are human beings, yes indeed!

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Botox (On The Rocks)
BOTOX (ON THE ROCKS)

I woke up this morning stepped out in the hall
I’m scared of a mirror that hangs on the wall
my face looks so boring my lips are so thin
and here is the story of my wrinkled skin
my body looks flat my titties hang down
I want to be sexy and then rule the town

give me silicon give me botox fill me up from hat to socks
I need silicon I need botox both of them and on the rocks
big balloons for better looking and for better selling me
I’m not only here for cooking pay the price and you will see

I woke up this morning stepped out in the hall
I’m scared of a mirror that hangs on the wall
please show me a doc I want under his knife
I don’t fear the shock to be dead or alive
please show me the way to fulfil all my dreams
my brain isn’t really as smart as it seems

give me silicon give me botox fill me up from hat to socks
I need silicon I need botox both of them and on the rocks
big balloons for better looking and for better selling me
I’m not only here for cooking pay the price and you will see
pay the price!

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Fairy Tale
FAIRY TALE

I’m a princess nice and fair all the time I brush my hair
I have diamonds, pearls and rings but I really miss a prince

stepping out the door one day what I saw is what I say
’twas a frog under a tree and I knew he would help me

so I kissed ’im on his mouth but no prince came plopping out
then he spoke t’was like a shout resolute and mighty proud:

«I’m a frog I’m not a man I do only what I can
and what nature’s telling me it’s the very best for me

go away with your illusion ’cause I hate all self-delusion
live your life don’t wish you mine do it right and you’ll be fine.»

this cruel wisdom in his words ’tis the truth that always hurts
illumination filled my soul made my heart as black as coal

then I looked into the air stork with baby in its care
sees the frog as he stares down sitting there with legs and crown

baby falls down from the sky froggy’s life is soon to end
high from the meal the stork takes off and changes to a prince with a puff

Newton’s force of attraction is no fairy tale at all
in the end no satisfaction only bodies in free fall

now I stand here all alone got no prince and got no throne
’cause my father, biggest king, threw me out thanks to this fling

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Rocking Chair
ROCKING CHAIR

tell me what the hell is going wrong with you
you don’t try to change you don’t change the rule
’cause you’re sitting fat and lazy in your rocking chair
watching television see the world despair

tell me what the hell are you looking for
you can’t even peer through your judas hole
’cause you’re sitting fat and lazy in your rocking chair
watching television see the world despair

and for heaven’s sake what is biting you
that you think you’re right, responsible and true
you’re just sitting fat and lazy in your rocking chair
watching television see the world despair

tell me who the hell do you think you are
you are not a genius you are not a movie star
you’re just sitting fat and lazy in your rocking chair
watching television see the world despair

never mind rise and grind
never mind
you’re not kind you are blind
you don’t find peace of mind

Lyrics by Mario Giovanoli / Music by Ruedi Stamm
Track Name: Everybody's Waiting
EVERYBODY'S WAITING

everybody’s waiting nobody knows what for
but everybody’s waiting nobody slams the door
everybody’s waiting and everybody knows
that everybody’s waiting no matter where it goes

someone waits for something nobody knows the spell
to stop this silly waiting somebody’s gambling well
there’s a rotten graveyard where death comes up from hell
he shows you the red card and then he rings the bell

everybody’s waiting nobody knows what for
but everybody’s waiting nobody slams the door
everybody’s waiting and everybody knows
that everybody’s waiting no matter where it goes

someone waits for something nobody knows the spell
to stop this silly waiting somebody’s gambling well
there’s a rotten graveyard where death comes up from hell
he shows you the red card and then he rings the bell
everybody waits
