Track Name: Kings Of The Class
Kings of the class

She´s sick of dancing alone in front of the black painted wall.
She came to see what would be now she´s out with the whole.
If there´s a hand she could hold, and if there´s a word she could say.
If there are feet she could meet, if there´s a world she could share.

We were the kings of the class in 1985
We were the chocolate revenge
We came to take it with us.
We thrilled the masterminds.
We killed the fashion waves.
We were the kings of the class.
We came to take it with us.

He´s nervous and shy but he likes the song.
His eyes are touching the girl in front of the wall.
Would she be happy if he just said some words to her?
Would she agree if he invited her to a cup of tea today?
If there´s a hand she could hold she´d throw her perfect smile.
She´d say remember me by. We went to the same school...

We were the kings of the class in 1985
We were the chocolate revenge
We came to take it with us.
We thrilled the masterminds.
We killed the fashion waves.
We were the kings of the class.
We came to take it with us.
Track Name: Manège Fou
Manège Fou

The day sticks in our eyes
They´re filled with utter joy
`coz we are still alive
Our bellies love the choice

The Killer on the door
is working on his smile
what is he for?
Perfect english style

Ce soir manège fou
Ce soir la vie facile
Your heart seems to explode

So many godlike saints
shaped in underwear
so many useful pains
to be model of the year

One last postcard smile
before we´re heading into chaos
Dancing into sunlight
But this door it must be closed

Ce soir manège fou
Ce soir la vie facile
Your heart seems to explode
Track Name: Till Monday
Till Monday

It got her, so she said
Hypnotized like sleeps in beds
Without movement of thought
Something tells her not to speak

It´s all too strange for me to know
Why she´s sad when there´s much more
In it till monday´s and its blow
just tells me not to speak

Monday kept her twisted
She fell in love with
The situation
of the spinning of the world
Tuesday she just missed it
She called a neighbour
To ask if he could
feel the spinning of the world

(Background:
You can have it all the sights of today
You can have it all and watch it play)

It got her, so she said
People watched her when she sent
Her whole future to hell
Something tells her just to laugh
About this and the feeling of the state
Must be something strange she ate
This world´s a misery
When you don´t find anything to laugh at

Monday kept her twisted
She fell in love with
The situation
of the spinning of the world
Tuesday she just missed it
She called a neighbour
To ask if he could
feel the spinning of the world

(Background:
You can have it all the sights of today
You can have it all and watch it play
You can kiss the world´s astound unloving face
You could take a sip of any different place)
