Track Name: Alzheimer is Calling
Forgetting and raging
Lonely
My body is aging
Slowly
But it's fast enough to get old,
Old in no time, old in no time.

Alzheimer is calling
Quietly
Not ready to fold
Cannot be
I am barely breathing
Wasting my last times
For tomorrow I'm leaving
To the other side, to the other side.

Cover me - I'm cold
Who are you - I'm not
Quite sure
Are you my mother,
My daughter, nurse
or another
Person or a dream of mine?
I'm afraid I'm out of time.
Track Name: Sentenced to Death
I'm sentenced to death
from the moment I was born
I'm sentenced to death
all of nature wants me gone
my lawyers cannot argue for more time
come down here and tell me what is my crime
I am with neither reason nor rhyme
I can't forget i'm sentenced to death
I just can't forget i'm sentenced to death

I'm sentenced to death
I'm no sinner, I'm no fraud
I'm sentenced to death i am calling,
where are you G-d?
I can hear someone knocking at the door
I can't seem to feel myself anymore
all my loyalties are on the floor
can't settle my debt
can't settle my debt
can't settle my debt
I'm sentenced to death
Track Name: Serve Me
Keep outta sight; keep outta sight
Don't wanna hear you talk but you better look just right.

Serve Me; only my needs.

Nothing left for you is how it's gonna be then.
You don't matter when it comes to sharing feelings.

Don't override; don't override.

Serve Me; only my needs.

I make all the rules here and your only job is follow.
Take it all in shifts; your only job is swallow.

This is your plight; no use in flight.
Make the same mistake and you’ll find yourself outside.

Serve Me; only my needs.

Faking only gets you hung in double trouble
Leaving cancels the reward of any

lyrics by Kim Noble
Track Name: Brainless Woman fights for Peace
She left her brains
On dusty shelf
Where television's on forever
She will repeat what it'll say
And nobody knows if she's dumb or clever
Nobody knows where she lives
Nobody knows if she loves someone
Brainless woman fights for peace
For she's a brainless, brainless woman.

When alone she likes to wipe the dust,
She knows no past, no Holocaust.
She fights for peace saving the Middle East from the Jewish beasts.

Nobody needs you, pretty baby
Noone to wipe your tears
Fighting for truth is what you're craving
To fight those enormous fears.

When alone she likes to wipe the dust,
She knows no past, no Holocaust.
She fights for peace saving the Middle East from the Jewish beasts.
Track Name: Candy
This world is a candy. It says "FUN" on a wrapper. Youthful, gluttonous fun. Too sweet to eat it all at once.

A candy. This world is a candy.

I ate my candy. My teeth fell out, corroded with sugar. I need another candy. I cry and I ask - give me my candy back. I will change, I promise. Just give me another candy for more fun. I want to sin again but cannot chew anymore. I need another one.

My system collapsed in diabetic nonsense.
The wrapper is all torn, the caramel is all but finished and mother's dead hand cleans the table. Time to go for a walk.

A candy. This world is a candy.
Track Name: Boomerang
Lyrics by Kim Noble

I got it bad; real bad, too bad, I got an itch; an itch that I wanna scratch.
Do ya think about life about strife about what’s eatin’ what’s eatin’, what’s eatin’ you alive?
Do wanna escape run the next big race?
Have your cake and just shove it, shove it all in your face?
Life can be such a doom, lotta gloom, a big boom boom boom Boomerang.
Like a Boomerang released into the wild.
Will you return to me or become wayward child?
Forget everything you’ve learned when you were young.
Step out; no fear; don’t let your hero go unsung.
Boom Boom Boom Boom Boom Boomerang
So where ya go, what’s the flow, are you bound, have you found what’s the next big show?
Or will you try, try and strike on your own or just give up and let the wind blow blow blow blow.
What’s up next for you do you gotta prove or are you fine with whatever room they put you in?
Life can be such a doom, lotta gloom, a big boom boom boom Boomerang.
Track Name: Nothing
Nothing
