Lyrics

Haunted

Written By: Big Charlie

DEAR FRIEND,
WE LIVE like SMALL ANTS
AND NOW I think I DON’T WANT TO BE MORE AN ANT
SPENDING
MY LIFE BEATING MY ANTENNA
AGAINST ANOTHER ONE
OVER AND OVER
WE ARE LIKE
ANTS OR INSECTS
WITH AUTOMATIC PILOT BUT
WITHOUT MAKING HUMAN actions ...
NEVER.NEVER AND NEVER!!!
STOP! Forward! Back! GO HERE! And GO THERE!
STOP! Forward! Back! GO HERE!

THEY ARE ONLY SIMPLE
ACTIONS
TO SURVIVE ...
HERE'S TO YOU! HOW CAN I HELP YOU ?
DO YOU WANT A STRAW?
NO! I SAY
I WANT
REAL HUMAN MOMENTS!
THE ANTS STOP
AND LOOK AT ME
ANT QUEEN IS COMING FROM BEHIND
MAYBE I WILL NOT DIE
AND THE RED ANTS WILL EAT ME
AND BRING ME INTO THE
UNDERGROUND?
YOU SEE HOW THE ANTS DO?
THE ANTS WILL EAT ME LATER

STOP! Forward! Back! GO HERE! GO THERE! (X4)
go here! go here!

THE RED ANT CHOSE ME
THE RED ANT IS HUNTING ME
THE RED ANT FOUND ME
THE RED IS COOKING ME

STOP! Forward! Back! GO HERE! GO THERE! (X4)
go here! go here!

STOP! Forward! Back! GO HERE! GO THERE! (X4)

The Sun

Written By: Big Charlie

When it comes up over me
the sun rises in me.
when it comes up over you
the time stops beating.
When it comes up over me
this time let me in
When it comes up over you
the sun

rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you breathe it
rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you crawl

When it comes up over you
don't talk, just let me in
when it comes up over you
the sound

rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you breathe it
rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you breathe it
rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you crawl


don't stop
we are trains off the rails
but we can keep rising
so please
don't stop
we know we’ll always be there
and we can’t forget the reason
to say
don't stop
we are trains off the rails
but we can keep rising
so please
don't stop
we know we’ll always be there
and we can’t forget the reason
to say
don't stop
don't stop

rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you breathe it
rage will come
rage will come closer
and this time you crawl

Here Comes The Mobster

Written By: Big Charlie

Here comes the mobster
I can see he comes
And catches every one he sees
Here comes the mobster
You can hide yourself
But he will hunt for you
Here comes the mobster
Yeah!
He can read your mind
And pose to buy everything
He comes too faster
You can run away
At home and hide yourself
HE’s already behind you

Head and shoulders baby 123
Head and shoulders baby 123
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders baby 123

Here comes the mobster AAAAAAAAAAA
He’s moving faster every pawn to play his game
He’s fast and snatches every pound for his big home
You are the next to meet him
You are the next to meet him

Head and shoulders baby 123
Head and shoulders baby 123
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders
Head and shoulders baby 123

Here comes the mobster
I can see he comes and catches everyone he sees
Here comes too faster
you can run away at home to hide yourself
Here comes the mobster
You can run away at home to hide yourself
You’re the next to meet him
You’re the next to meet him

123
You’re the next to meet him 123
You’re the next! You’re the next
You’re the next to meet him 123
You’re the next to meet (x2)
You’re the next to meet him

Morphine

Written By: Big Charlie

It's too late for me
is there a place where to be?
did you listen? did you listen?
it's too hard to admit
you're the wrost thing i ever need
did you listen? did you listen?

this melody
sets slowly my downfall
the remedy
is too far away from home
and the tragedy
will not completly fall apart

Slowly
You become my morphine
Did you know
This attitude?
You become my morphine
It’s your fault

This time I will
(No no no)
Feel it
No no no
Reality
(No no nowhere)
Distraction
(No way!) (X2)
the melody is killing me
sets slowly my downfall
and the tragedy
will not completly fall apart

Slowly
You become my morphine
Did you know
This attitude?
You become my morphine
It’s your fault

start your countdown
your whisper
will follow
me in the hole
the screams now
are all in my head
and scare me
more than nightmares
you become my morphine
slowly
you become my morphine (x2)

Headache

Written By: Big Charlie

They just want to be upset
with me
wherever I go
they don’t care
saying “everything is ok”

I'm tired of their words
of what they say about me

I'm afraid of my headache
it shouts to me
you can't be satisfied
no more

the shadows will dance with you
OH no!!
You will smile and rise again
The shadows will dance with you
Oh no!!
the shadows will dance with you
OH no!!

I don’t want to give up
Again
I feel a thing
My headache Is pushing me over

The body falls apart
The floor is writhing Around me
I’m possessed by my headache
It shouts to me
“you can’t be satisfied no more”

the shadows will dance with you
OH no!!
You will smile and rise again
The shadows will dance with you
Oh no!!
the shadows will dance with you
OH no!!
