Lyrics

I'm So Naiwe

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

I'm So Naiwe [2011]

(Verse 1)

I'm like a Mowgli here, taught by a bunch of books
Two thirds of my destiny I shared platonic looks
Now something suddenly appears to set my eyes
On sex and politics, stupidity and lies

(Bridge)

And I come to conclude that

(Chorus)

I'm so naive
Can't tell a rival from a friend
But I'd be so honored if
My pulse had stopped in your hand

(Verse 2)

This woman's inner world is a mistery and a curse
It ruined everything I knew of universe
All human philosophy was made by virgin males
That's why for a common sinner it's all just fairy tales

(Bridge)

But they're better than the truth
And this is what I used to think, cos

(Chorus)

Be kind to me
Cos I'm kinda truly not involved
So guess I gonna fold

(Chorus)

TV & Sofa & Beer

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

TV & Sofa & Beer

(Verse 1)

She only wanted money
Oh fine
Hence I'm as usual only standing in line
For friends
For milk
For piece
I'm sorting papers..
Very nice
And I'm a bitch for my boss I despise
And my life is hit
And mostly miss

(Bridge)

So fascinating
Ate him
In the bar, at home or wherever it may be
You're lame and lazy
Baby
So come and touch me, come and taste me

(Chorus)

TV and sofa and beer
I feel the heaven is near
Sofa and beer and TV
Nobody cares for me

(Verse 2)

I'm getting home from work
Feel no fault
Watching kitties crawling in the cold
Pathethic as I am
I'm my ages Buddah
I'm a king
Smoking and drinking 'till I smell myself stink
Then 'till I
Don't give
A damn

(Bridge)

It's all he can do
What about you?
Seems sad, but it's true
Now what about you?
You're lame and lazy
Just like my baby
So come and touch me, come and taste me

(Chorus)

TV and sofa and beer
I feel the heaven is near (and the stars are so bright)
Sofa and beer and TV (and I'm feeling allright)
Nobody cares for me

I'm just like everyone else
Buying what grocery sells
Yelling
And smelling
Complaining
And losing pals

Push the Relay

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

Push The Relay

(Verse 1)

You may not be the first, you don't give a damn
Or may be not, but it's not for the cam?
It's cool to be normal, this is your motto
Cos you're sure, you're special by default; sorry no

You didn't enjoy today, neither yesterday
It means, tomorrow better run away
From all your microwave and your TVset
And friends and habits that you can't forget

(Bridge)

How deep the pound of your memory is?
You'll sink in it, you'll sink, don't you see this?
Only escape from home can free us
Ooh ooh ooh

(Chorus)

Our state is so
delicate
I'm afraid
we're totally late
Get up move on I call you
Get up move on to

(Verse 1')

Still nothing's changin
And with time it ain't becoming more gay
Can you imagine
For how f#&$%n much more long will we stay?

(Chorus 1')

We're still playing solitaire
Like we were never going there
As if we don't know that the danger's near
Prepare your old self to go
Like that guy from the trueman show
Push the relay
There's nothing left to say

(Verse 2)

And we open champagne
And drink to our pain
And we know that stain' will kill us
And as we're getting drunk
We decide to run
But in fact we're just having fun,
still not serious

Another night is gone and we're waking up
With a head ache,
a rather good excuse to forsake
Were back to our usual amnesiac
State,
as it's getting too late

(Chorus)

(Verse 2')

The time we've wasted
Multiplied by the speed of light
Results in trace that (lies)
Between us and our lost pride

(Chorus 2')

What's wrong with our Trueman now?
Are we on the run or how?
Where now is the man who once drank the sea?
The truth has another mask
What's behind it, you might have asked
But I'm not sure that you'll wanna see

Why don't we just go?

(A long solo)

Way is ours, d'we wanna sit?
Way is ours, d'we wanna sit?
(Where is our democracy?)

..don't push the relay..

Elvis in My Heart

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

Elvis In my Heart

(Verse 1)

Mama,
Buy me a coffin
I'll be a rockstar, I wanna die young
So please hurry

Tomorrow
Will be my birthday
And daddy bought me a six string
So I've de?ided

(Chorus)

You know it's so complicated
And I'm a little frustrated, think I'm Elvis in my heart

(Verse 2)

Mary,
I am preparing
For tons of sex & drugs & so on
& et cetera

Mama
I am not joking
I wanna die young, I wanna die young
I wanna die pretty

(Chorus)

Who Are We (but Rats)?

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

Who Are We? (But Rats)

(Verse 1)

You you, a filthy creature
When you're drunk, become a preacher
When you starve you beg to spare
And when you're rich you never share, now

(Chorus)

Who are we but rats?
Who are we but rats?

(Verse 2)

All the people are psychotic
Always chasing for exotic
And nobody will confess
But they just worry 'bout their ass

(Chorus)

Who are we but rats?
Who are we but rats?
Who are we but rats?
Who are we, who are we

And noone's an exception
And noone's an exception
And noone's an exception

(Verse 3)

Now, rat's a gorgeous animal
And in the chorus I recall them
Only cos it sounds a goal
In fact they're better than us all

(Chorus)

My Melee Skills

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

My Melee Skills

(Verse 1)

You may have a brain and a heart
But it ain't gonna help you gain respect if you're of my kind
You must be a man and a half
If you wanna wear a woman's skirt, you've almost constantly gotta fight

(Bridge 1)

And I got no money to spend on a gun
So my fist really helps, although my manicure's gone
I'm willing to keep on

(Chorus 1)

My melee skills
Are saving me again and again
I wear my lipstick
And I don't get abused when
Somebody confuse my sex
GO!

(Verse 2)

Now humans hate other humans
Too many times we failed trying to make it up with words
Now females hate other females (shemales)
And everybody who is in between as well

(Bridge 2)

For those who don't like my unnatural bust:
Smack some punch if you don't wanna discuss
Don't wanna discuss

(Chorus 2)

My melee skills
Are saving me again and again
I wear my lipstick
And I am sure I can protect my innocence

My melee skills
Are saving me again and again
I wear my lipstick
And I don't get abused when
Somebody confuse my sex

(Bridge 2)

(Chorus 3)

My melee skills
Are saving me again and again
I wear my lipstick
And I am sure I can protect my innocence

My melee skills
Feel like I'm wanted for a reward
I eat my bisquits
And I don't wanna hear
Your spoken aloud fear
And I don't wanna care
About your crazy stares
As if I could infect you all or what

The Feet of the Daughters of Men

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

The Feet Of The Daughters Of Men (Bonus Track) [2009; Liza - Single]

(Verse 1)

Sarah was smokin in the hall of the conservatory
Oh how she was crying for love-
Love is all, love is God, love is gettind us pissed
She straightens her sight through the candle,
And love was one thing she couldn't handle
She walked in the mist, she walked in the mist

Why did the things go so wrong though we gave all our powers?
Why must our love be so cruel,
Why did it fall so deep, if it's sent from above?
These questions they still have no answers,
He'll find them in later romances,
But she'll never love again, never love

Ooououooh, wa-hoo-uu-uu, yeiyeah

(Chorus)

Thank God at last my heart breaks
There's nothin more left to ache
But underneath it all
I'm still afraid to fall (Johny buried Pau)
There's nothin more left to ache

Lock me, destroy me, love me-ee

(Verse 2)

Please send me back, please make me feel secure, like I did then
A voice from within screams to me- you have made a mistake, you have made a mistake
I knew from the start of this scandal
That this is the thing I won't handle
The love I can't give, the hits I can't take

Ooououooh, wa-hoo-uu-uu, yeiyeah

(Chorus)

Liza

Written By: Boris Demidiuk

Liza [2009; Liza - Single]

(Verse 1)

There is a dream among my dreams that I love best
But in my life she only seems to be a guest
I let her in, let my love begin,
My needles & my pins

We didn't talk much and our words were always right
We never dated, we met casually each night
And I could only see that it was love
When she was running off

So please

(Chorus 1)

Liza Liza, hear my calling
I'm always waiting, you know that
Liza Liza, I can't help falling
In love with your sweet image in my head

(Verse 2)

She said- you're fun, we kissed, and then she whispered- well...
I thought- I love her, and I asked- is this farewell?
All other girls, except this girl of mine,
At this place would start crying, crying, crying

She didn,t need to answer, it fas in her eyes:
No milk today, no more romance, no more surprise
Ethernity is where our love belonged,
We knew it won't last long... so long!

So long

(Chorus 2)

Liza Liza, read my thoughts, girl
And you will find there only you
Liza Liza, hear these chords, girl
This my love howling is brand new

(Verse 3)

There is a wish among my wishes I want most
But knowing we should part she vanished like a ghost
Cos in her life I'm nothin but a joke,
I'm so glad that I awoke

It was too easy- from beginning to the end
We took it easy: you're my lover- I'm your friend
But without me there's something she will lack
And I feel that she'll come back

(Chorus 1)

(Chorus 3)

Liza Liza, let's meet naked
Let's load your guns again and try
Liza Liza, I know we'll make it
We'll break on throu this house of lies
