about

This is the fifth album of the Dolls and it's their best so far! Existing more than 12 years, lots of records and concerts all over the world the Dolls are THE Punkrock Institution in Europe! On this record you can hear 15 short melodic PopPunk tunes within nearly 30 minutes. The sound is absolutely perfect: fantasic refrains, fat guitar sounds supportet by a killer beat machine and great lyrics!

Track Name: Got Busted
1. Got busted (hanging out with you)
She’s not just anyone; she’s a one in a million girl
She wears her heart out on the sleeve and her hair in curls
She does what’s wrong, but not to me
She’s a whirlwind, can’t you see
Hitting on my summer beach
Let’s go!
Found her own ways to make a living in this world
I’m always scared to death when she says: “not a word!”
Sometimes I lie awake and think of that girl all night
Wishing everything’s alright
Got busted hanging out with you [x2]
She does what’s wrong, but not to me
She’s a whirlwind, can’t you see
Hitting on my summer beach
Got busted hanging out with you [x4]
Track Name: Gimme All The Good Stuff
2. Gimme all the good stuff
Sugar, honey – sugar is the best
Gimme all the good stuff, baby
Carbohydrates, always a blast
Gimme all the good stuff
Vitamins all, up and down the alphabet
Gimme all the good stuff, baby
If you don’t give a damn about nutrition facts
Gimme all the good stuff
There’s good and bad fat to feed your ass
Gimme all the good stuff, baby
Proteins, minerals, sugar’s still the best
Gimme all the good stuff
If you don’t give a damn about nutrition facts
Gimme all the good stuff, baby
Gimme all the good stuff, baby
Gimme all the good stuff
Track Name: In Case You're Unaware
3. In case you’re unaware
Lying on the floor watching posters on the wall
She does her homework with the record player on
Dreaming of a day she’s cutting out of line
And she won’t be home for dinner time
For now she’s stuck in this dirty little town
But her family’s all nice; she’s got a room for her own
Her friends are happy when she says with a sigh
Let’s hang out on Saturday night
(She thinks :)
“Those darn kids these days just buy the shit they’re faced, why don’t they make up their own mind and their parents will be proud to see them grow up to live their same old greedy lies”
“Well, that is life… “
Kicking at the door, scratching lines in the wall
Counting the days she’s been waiting for the call
But no one’s going to come to get her out of there
She’s got her own plans, but they have better ones for her
For now she’s stuck in this dirty little town
But her family’s all nice; she’s got a room for her own
Her friends are happy when she says with a sigh
Let’s hang out on Saturday night
(She thinks :)
“Those darn kids these days just buy the shit they’re faced, why don’t they make up their own mind and their parents will be proud to see them grow up to live their same old greedy lies”
In case you’re unaware
We’re nobody’s superstars – just a pain in the ass – we are
Nobody’s superstars – just a pain in the ass – we are
Track Name: Yeah, Me Too
5. Yeah, me too
Did you say something, baby?
I really thought you did now
Did you say something, baby?
Hard to tell when the music’s loud
Anyway, anyway, anyway
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, me too
Anyway, anyway, anyway
Stick with me, ‘cause I’ve got the glue
Did you say something, baby?
I want your unconditional love
Did you say something, baby?
I’m almost ready for you now
Anyway, anyway, anyway
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, me too
Anyway, anyway, anyway
But what’s your name?
Track Name: I'm A Flower, Too
6. I’m a flower, too.
An all plastic heart, not special to no one
With all moving parts got caught up in some chewed up strawberry Rocket Power™ bubblegum
You’re not the only one [x2]
Stupidly proud of nothings and nonsense
We stupidly shout our pre-thought and most un-thought phrases at the classroom walls
Words are bullets, son
And we all have a gun
Why don’t we take this world apart and build a better one instead?
We all need a brand new start! Or aren’t we tired of banging heads against the walls?
Lovers stealing rhymes from loved ones,
The future of love to be a cover version of the entire Parasites discography
Who said we can’t have fun [x2]
An all plastic heart, not special to no one
With all moving parts got caught up in some chewed up strawberry Rocket Power™ bubblegum
You’re not the only one
And that is all you’ve got
Why don’t we take this world apart and build a better one instead?
We all need a brand new start, but it takes more than breaking bread and drinking wine! [x2]
There’s no time, there’s no time, there’s no time to lose!
Your whole town knows you’re beautiful,
but you don’t know that I love you!
Your whole town knows you’re beautiful,
but you don’t know that I love you!
Seems I’m not going to tell you,
but you should know that you’re beautiful!
Did you know that I’m a flower, too?
You should know that I’m a flower, too!
Track Name: Something To Hold Onto
7. Something to hold onto

Many thanks to Dave for helping out with the lyrics and even more for being a major influence on the Sonic Dolls to become what they are now. “The future of love to be a cover version of the entire Parasites discography” – we give it a shot.

I’m sick and tired of always turning away
Give me something to do, give me something to say
Seems what I need is hard to find
Only a child with a head full of dreams
I don’t know what life is, I don’t know what it means
Turns out it’s just a waste of time
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I’ll pull through this time
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I’ll be feeling fine – feeling fine…
I’m sick and tired of seein’ you every day
Thought you were looking at me, thought you were looking my way
Seems you’ve already changed your mind
Only a fool for a heart full of schemes
I don’t know what love is, I don’t know what it means
Turns out it’s just a waste of time
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I’ll pull through this time
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I’ll be feeling fine –
Then I’ll be feeling fine…
If you believe what the people say
And if you’re happy almost every day
And if you think that the sun still shines
Trade your life with mine sometime – hey!!
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I'll pull through this time
Can’t somebody give me something
Something to hold onto
And then I’ll be feeling fine –
Then I’ll be feeling fine
Feeling fine - Feeling fine
Track Name: J. Merrick Stomp
8. Joseph Merrick (does the stomp)

You’re frustrated with the truth
It’s either monkey see or monkey do
You’re mind’s an undecided zoo
See the elephant man do the hoola-hoop
See Joseph Merrick do the elephant stomp [x2]
You may decide to be a fool
For hate, fear, anger, love a bitter blue
You’re mind’s an undecided zoo
See the elephant man do the hoola-hoop
See Joseph Merrick do the elephant stomp [x2]
You’re the monster, you’re the freak [x4]
Track Name: Do You Wanna Go?
9. Do you wanna go?
Do you wanna go? [x2]
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
You know my heart is always there.
Been out of the red
Just around the day we met - on skid row
Let’s not do, but say we did
Deep down in the blue, still
Stepping out of my dancing shoes – on Broadway
We had our chance, let’s not dance on
Out in the green, I’m counting sheep
That’s what I do if I can’t sleep
Do you wanna go? [x2]
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
You know my heart is always there.
Been sleeping in the shed
Ever since the day we met - I was drunk
Let’s not do, but say we did
It’s not been boy to man, just some
hand in hand – or hand to mouth?
We had our dance, let’s not dance on
I’m counting sheep but I can’t sleep
I’ve been counting them for weeks
Do you wanna go? [x2]
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
You know my heart is always there.
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
You know our legs will take us there
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
You know the sheep will lead us there
Do you wanna go where it hurts?
Track Name: My Love, You're A Freak Show
10. My love, you’re a freak show
Could be someone
Could be anyone
Could be just a waste of time
But time is all I have, it’s all I have
Could be your one
Should be my one
Cause one life is all we have
And it’s a waste of time, a waste of time
I got those visions on my mind
And I’m trying to make them real
We’re trading in our dreams
Trade them in for something real
My love, you’re a freak show
Thought you were on medication oh
My love, you’re a freak show
Thought you were on medication
Could be somewhere
Could be anywhere
Could be just a waste of time
Those things are hard to find, they’re hard to find
Could be something
Could be anything
But those things are all we have
Cause I’m not yours and you’re not mine
I got those visions on my mind
And I’m trying to make them real
We’re trading in our dreams
Trade them in for something real
My love, you’re a freak show
Thought you were on medication [x5]
My love, you’re a freak show
Thought you were on medication about that
Track Name: Happy Days
11. Happy days
And I go „Hey!
I know you’re sad, but the world will be okay”
And she will say: “Everything is flowers today”
You can see it in her happy face [x2]
Like we’re on teenage drugs
And it’s only ten o’clock now
That’s what, what you do to me
Like we’re on teenage drugs
Just like we’re all alone now
That’s what, what you do to me
Happy days on my mind
“Don’t be ashamed
You know you’re giving love a better name”
And she will say: “Everything is roses today”
“Just called up to say hello” – “hello” [x2]
Like we’re on teenage drugs
And it’s only ten o’clock now
It’s what, what you do to me
Like we’re on teenage drugs
Just like I’m all alone now
That’s what, what you do to me
Happy days on my mind [x3]
Track Name: Holes In Our Hearts
12. Holes in our hearts
Thumbs up for love if you’re ready to take the blame
When right’s not really right or wrong just the same
The palest face at night
Is just a blank for the brightest smile
Why’s that we always hurt the one we love
We’ve got holes in our hearts
From all those bullets and darts
Yea we’ve got holes in our hearts
“Come on, I love you and you love me and that’s how it’s got to be, baby!”
Why ask about the where and when? we only know the who!
Or don’t you think we look pretty good together?
The greyest cats at night
Dreaming rainbows day by day
You can’t paint love with just black and white
Proud of our colourful hearts
So full of bullets and darts
Yea we’ve got black and blue hearts
“Come on, I love you and you love me and that’s how it’s got to be, baby!”
If you want to start a war
You got to be prepared to go all the way
But who would have thought of love
As being as much of the same
The palest face at night
Is just a blank for the brightest smile
Why’s that we always hurt the one we love
We’ve got holes in our hearts
From all those bullets and darts
Yea we’ve got holes in our hearts
“Come on, I love you and you love me and that’s how it’s got to be, baby!”
Track Name: Living In A Tracksuit
13. Living in a tracksuit
Hey little girl, can I walk you home
My head is all wood, but my heart’s not stone
Hey little girl, can I walk you home
Cause you are not safe alone, yeah
The Pope’s on TV
There’s nothing god can’t see
The Pope’s on TV
Everybody is – happy
Hey little boy, can I walk you home
My head is all wood, but my heart’s not stone
Hey little boy, can I walk you home
Cause you are not safe alone, yea
The Pope’s on TV
There’s nothing god can’t see
The Pope’s on TV
Everybody is - happy
Living in a tracksuit [x4]
Track Name: All It Means
14. All it means
It’s not enough to be a rebel inside
It’s the look, the talk you need to hide behind
Though those dreams are not my own
I’ll join the rats with my new uniform
All it means: a whole lot of nothing [x4]
I saw the crying face in the crowd
We’re all the same just the wrong way round
Though those dreams are not my own
I’ll join the rats with my new uniform
All it means: a whole lot of nothing [x4]
Track Name: It Doesn't Matter At All
15. It doesn’t matter at all
Another week into another month
It doesn’t matter at all
The money’s short and the beer’s all gone
It doesn’t matter at all
Colours bright on a crooked grump
It doesn’t matter at all
The party’s on and we gonna have fun
It doesn’t matter at all
There’s one, two, three, four, five kids on the floor
And the little girl’s been asking for more
So we get back on stage and play this stupid song
As a matter of fact it doesn’t matter at all
Drove all night to make it to the show
It doesn’t matter at all
So if you think you wanna sing along
It doesn’t matter at all
Two chords make a two-twenty song
It doesn’t matter at all
Two chords just can’t be wrong
It doesn’t matter at all
There’s one, two, three, four, five kids on the floor
And the little girl’s been asking for more
So we get back on stage and play this stupid song
As a matter of fact it doesn’t matter at all
It doesn’t matter [x4]
