Got Busted 01:47
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]

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

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

5. Yeah, me too Did you say something, baby? I really thought you did now 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?

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!

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

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]

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?

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

Happy Days 01:59
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]

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!”

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]

All It Means 02:01
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]

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]

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!
