LYRICS

AUNT LILITH

CH  please put aunt Lilith to the test

she’s a fake, she’s not going to die

please slip it into her glass

and she will tell you everything’s alright

 

you told us in tears you started chemotherapy

now we know, you were just shaving your head

the time has come to take you apart

to see yourself as you really are

 

the brain scan showed

well there ain’t no tumor in your head

you made us really upset

please put aunt Lilith to the test!  hey  CH

 

the get-well cards, mini flower bouquets

we sent them, you had nothing to say

and now there’s an elephant in the hospital room

you call the nurse and just tell her to shoot it

oh please put aunt Lilith to the test! 

 

SHOOT AND I’LL ANSWER

can aeroplanes fly backwards?

can the sky just break in two?

you need to get your head straight

 

and can astronauts text in space?

can a robot do your job?

you keep on living inside a dream

 

can a bird fly with a broken wing?

can you see England from France?

don’t you want to be with a person like me?

 

medicate yourself with laughter

finish your supper, I know they’re after me

they really hate me

 

barricade your door from disaster

finish this song, I know they have the key

can aeroplanes fly backwards?

can you heal from PTSD?

 

NEVER MIND YOUR SHOES

do-da-da-do-da-da-do-da-da

never mind your shoes when you go into the working room

never mind your shoes, she will untie your shoes for you

never mind your shoes, never mind, she’s just a prostitute

and I’m leaving for the top

and I’ll meet you at the top,  I’ll meet you there tonight

we’ll have a few drinks and we’ll have a real good time

 

do-da-da-do-da-da-do-da-da

never mind your shoes when you’re strapped to a metal bed

never mind your shoes when you’re wallet is in her hands

never mind your shoes, never mind, she’s just a cokehead, man

and I’m leaving for the top

and I’ll meet you at the top,  I’ll meet you there tonight

we’ll have a few drinks and we’ll have a real good time

 

do-da-da-do-da-da-do-da-da

never mind your shoes when you go into the living room

never mind your shoes when you knew she would really find out soon

that the truth is out when she starts to shout at you

and you knew from the start you would really break her heart

now you could try to win her back if you put yourself for once in her shoes

 

RIFLEMEN

all the redmen are waving a white flag

walk the Navajo, safely to the end

they’ll heal you, painting in the sand

don’t let this Captain take command

 

CH  Oooohhh aaahhh oohhh  – they’re taking down the riflemen!

Oooohhh aaahhh oohhh – they’ll fire when they see you again

 

in his heart, a seven-pointed star

get the head of the white Confederate

he kneels down, down on your ground

the Navajo are in the lost and found   CH (2x)

 

HEAT SEEKING MISSILES FOR PLEASURE

stone record guy doing 88 skips

she gets a micro-injection for beautiful lips

a totally blind wife baking chocolate chips

a nervous dude lines up girls in a row

 

CH  I know what you want

an astrophysics degree

but I saw that you flinched

and took it back to the streets

 

joking with people in a positive way

got 11k likes, I don’t think it’s so great

he’s hopping freight trains and you say that it’s cool

user60 announced he is starting to shoot  CH

 

jaded old man, can’t see you what I mean?

you started wasting your time and forgetting your dreams

jaded sad girl, can’t you see what I mean?

we’ve got to wake up before the alarm will go off,

we’ve got to take out the trash and

then a new life begins, an empty recycle bin

 

MAJORETTE

look for a girl, baton in her hands                                               

she stands — shoulder to shoulder                                                          

the looks of that girl staring back at me                                                

unease ‘cause I am much older                                                        

I know you slept with everyone                                                      

in the marching band, somebody told me                                                    

shows no signs of despair, majorette                                                         

                                                          

CH  blue is the color of the patriotic color palette                                      

nobody told her                                                        

red is the color of hardiness and valour                                                  

oh yeah, as you grow much older                                                      

and then, — the sun will be fading away                                                 

and you — will twirl and turn in your grave                                                     

                                                          

they are lining the street, keeping their eyes

on your thighs — you show a lot of skin, girl 

they measured your chest, your waist, hips and girth

and prayed you would not grow older

I know you kept a secret no one knew                                                         

but now I do, somebody told me                                                        

you were a stranger to your family, majorette CH
