miscalculated (hagenbuch)
(download)

you told me that someone else has won
that's when you broke my heart in two
and then you leave without a trace
i suspect you've done this all before
i drown my sorrows with a fifth
that's when i begin this hex
my stomach's feeling sick by seven
that's when i see everything i ate

who would have figured
that i would be so wrong about you
and when you left, i waited
i guess that i miscalculated

my troubles tend to multiply
when all you try to do is divide
you were always getting some
i should have seen the warning signs
i thought that we were equals
i guess i didn't add it up
you left me with nothing
now i can no longer count on you

who would have figured
that i would be so wrong about you
and when you left, i waited
i guess that i miscalculated

and i, didn't spot
that you were calculating a viscous plot

mannequin (hagenbuch)
(download)

i dress her up in the clothes she wears
i dress her up and then i stare
in concert t's of days passed
she's a rock and roll girl
at least in my mind

she strikes a pose like a fashion queen
she strikes a pose, yeah she's always seen
perfect posture like she's on display
she's a rock and roll girl
at least in my mind

i took her out dressed scantily
i took her out for the world to see
now all the guys think i'm on a roll
if they only knew she lacked a soul

she's a mannequin
i thought she'd be different
but she's a mannequin

i wanted a wooden girl
and wooden girl i find
didn't think she'd be hard to maintain
at least in my mind

rosie and ruby (hagenbuch)
(download)

oh rosie and ruby
went out to see a movie
on that hot and sunny afternoon
they were feeling the heat
and they had to leave the street
on that hot and sunny afternoon

blame it on the summer
blame it on the heat
blame it on the boredom
or simply who they'd meet
for somewhere along the way
they ran into jose
on that hot and sunny afternoon

now rosie and ruby
didn't think everything quite throughly
on that hot and sunny afternoon
they were in a car all full of booze
and headed south to santa cruz
on that hot and sunny afternoon

blame it on the summer
when things are hot
blame it on the boredom
or on chance that they got caught
for somewhere out on the street
they ran into the heat
on that hot and sunny afternoon

noone is saying that they were any kind of bad kids
just every now and then things don't go your way

oh rosie and ruby
went out to see a movie
on that hot and sunny afternoon
they were feeling the heat
and had to leave the street
on that hot and sunny afternoon

blame it on the summer
blame it on chance
blame it on the boredom
or a bad circumstance
for somewhere along the trail
they ended up in jail
on that hot and sunny afternoon
on that hot and sunny afternoon

wonderful world (hagenbuch)
(download)

i don't want to be stuck in traffic
i don't ever want to hear that racket
so with my mind i will make them go away
i don't want to go to work on monday
i'd like to be someone someday
so in my mind i will make things go that way

i don't like those who interrupt
or leaders who are corrupt
so with my mind i will make them go away
i don't like people that hate
i wish we could all relate
so in my mind i will make things go that way

with a little imagination
i can overcome all frustrations
because i simply erase them all away
i remove things one by one
pretty soon i'm the only one
i guess my mind got a little carried away

with my mental eraser
and my magic pen
I will change everything to be perfect again
oh, what a wonderful world that would be

valentine's day (hagenbuch)
(download)

friday the 13th
isn't so bad i say
nothing ever went wrong
on that particular day
the truth i speak
i'm not a freak
i kind of like... friday the 13th

february 14th
is another case
nothing goes right
i always fall on my face
the truth i say
i will not sway
i do not like... valentine's day

how come valentine's day
brings me such bad luck

the broken mirror's alright
nothing will go wrong tonight
it's the cupid that i fear
disaster is always near

well i live in dread
for the month of red
chocolate and hallmark cards
well i do too much
or not enough, it seems
someday i will conquer it
for now i'll stay inside
i'd rather be all alone
than pressured through
another valentine's day

metric song (hagenbuch)
(download)

in 73, we floated tea
we put our foot down
king george the third, we found absurd
we didn't want him around
and after all this time
we measure up a little bit behind

we learned in school, imperial rule
it's time we brought it to its end
may we erase, this big disgrace
and finally eliminate this trend
it's gone on too long
it's time to right this wrong

it's time we got mad
it's time for a revolution
it's time for a new solution
it's time to end this silly fad
it's time we got mad
it's time to make things neater
it's time to use the meter
it is time we got mad

our system's hurt, we can't convert
it's like some kind of a curse
i feel so numb, our country's dumb
it seems that it is getting worse
we let it all go unplanned
it's time to get up and make a stand

now we had our chance
many, many, many times
but we blew it blew it blew it
will we ever really do it
i don't know i don't know

a reminder (hagenbuch)
(download)

well i'm sitting in my chair
and i'm trying not to stare
so i'm thinking of a simple tune
and i'm smiling deep inside
but my thoughts drift back to you
i've got nothing else to do
and the blank page in my notebook
is staring me in the face

would you sing and dance with me?
would you be my fantasy?
would you be my reminder?

a mosquito bites my arm
i'm sure it didn't mean much harm
as i squash it with my hand
well i remember where i was
the summer's soft refrain
forget that winter pain
i close my eyes and visualize
an old familiar face

would you sing and dance with me?
would you be my fantasy?
would you be my reminder?

wimp farm (hagenbuch)
(download)

i've got some wood and some straw
and some old clothes from grandpa
i'll build a man a protector of the fields
well the birds aren't that smart
and it worked right from the start
i drew a smile on the protector of the fields

wimp farm, the seeds he sows
wimp farm, the wimps he grows
wimp farm, i think he planted me

for a while we were saved
and then one crow was feeling kind of brave
as he landed on the protector of the fields
very soon there were more
and our protector was then ignored
so i made a better protector of the fields
so i made a better protector of the fields

wimp farm, the seeds he sows
wimp farm, the wimps he grows
wimp farm, i think he planted me

this one was meaner, bigger, stronger, faster, cheaper and much better
he is the king of our fields, and he will keep us safe for he is our protector

well we all know how it ends
when just one bird catches on to my trends
then they'll be mocking my protector of the fields
then they'll be mocking my protector of the fields

wimp farm, the seeds he sows
wimp farm, the wimps he grows
wimp farm, i think he planted me

i don't know (hagenbuch)
(download)

she's the girl that i dream of
and i don't know, don't know now
she's the girl that i truly love
and i don't know, don't know if i'll
run away with her and be happy the rest of my life

so far away, the girl of my dreams
and i don't know, don't know love
so far away, unfair it all seems
and i don't know, don't know love
anymore it seems, i'm so lonely now
and i don't know, no don't know
anymore it seems, i'm so lonely now
and i don't know, no i don't know
if she's knowing love
is she knowing love

well i don't know much anymore
since she went away
one thing that i want
is i want to know

who's to blame (hagenbuch)
(download)

won't you wait a minute
it wasn't me who did it
i know i pulled the trigger
but this is how i figure
whoever made the air there
made it kind of thin here
it couldn't stop the travel
of a bullet from a barrel
and though it is an assault
can't you see it's not my fault

i thought that i should mention
while i have your attention
that i couldn't make these choices
i just listened to the voices
did everything that they said
and now another man is dead
don't call me stupid
for i didn't really do it
you may call me insane
but tell me now who's to blame

they call me destroyer
and now i need a lawyer
it's my only claim to fame
and tell me now who's to blame

i can't be the only fool
to be held responsible
they call me an assassin
and say i lack compassion
but no one tried to stop me
and others soon will copy
i tell you it's society
and not my own anxiety
there is just as much evil
in tons of other people

sleepless (hagenbuch)
(download)

if i had my way, i would hear robert cray
his guitar strings would sing me the blues
these walls are paper thin, lets their argument right in
and it seems that downstairs they always lose

well what's the point in fighting?
screaming in each other's screaming face
now stomp your feet and slam the door one last time for me
as i lay awakened in my bed

i don't know why they shout, or what their fighting's all about
i'd really rather not be involved
but as it tends to be, they share their shouts with me
and there will be no rest till it's resolved

well what's the point in fighting?
screaming at each other till you're blue
and one thing that i really hope is that no one has a gun
as i lay awakened in my bed

well finally they stop, i hear the ticking of the clock
echoing around inside my head
and as they trade their screams for the sandman's magic dreams
i find myself awakened in my bed

free will (hagenbuch)
(download)

if i were a robot
i would like that quite a lot
i wouldn't have the pressure
of making life a pleasure
when i got up

if i were a machine
then i wouldn't have to dream
i would never need a a part
to repair my broken heart
when we split up

free will is torture

if i were a device
everything would be so nice
i would never have to panic
i could hire a mechanic
when i would break

free will is torture

imaginary love affair (hagenbuch)
(download)

i dial the phone
answering machine
speak to the tone
hang up and scream
keep my thoughts inside
as my feelings grow
open my heart up wide
will i ever know?

someone to take me away from reality
to eternity

i may turn and toss
or sleep at night
find a win or loss
or find insight
i may find my love
or find a friend
or lose them both
in the bitter end

do my thoughts inside represent real life
bring eternal strife

imaginary love affair
when your heart is heavy and you just don't care
when you've nothing to lose
but a case of the blues
and you've nothing to do
but let your mind just cruise

imaginary love affair
when you're sneaking around in your underwear
in the summer night
let your heart take flight
for you just don't know
what might happen tonight

road trip (hagenbuch)
(download)

i'm bending into the wind
i'm leaving this place is wearing thin
it seemed so easily things became so hard
everything that's beat up is selling in the yard

i'm leaning into the breeze
i'm leaving i have my keys
we will never fit all this junk along our trail
so we decided we were throwing a yard sale

we'll take our car on the road
for this town is getting old
put the pedal to the floor
we'll take a little tour
this is it
it's time to split
road trip

killing me (hagenbuch)
(download)

i shy away from bullets
and i don't like knives
these tools of destruction
won't keep me alive
i don't take chances
and i don't like risk
but i never seem to listen
to my therapist

of all the little things that mess me up
she is the worst i see
it's time to stop this is killing me

i don't like danger
and i don't like stress
i don't like ulcers
or cardiac arrest
for some unknown reason
i keep coming back
the doctor says i'm ready
for a heart attack

of all the little things that mess me up
she is the worst i see
it's time to stop this is killing me

i avoid fatty foods
and i exercise
you may even sometimes
think i am wise
but just when you think
my head is on straight
i call her up again
and i seal my own fate

of all the little things that mess me up
she is the worst i see
it's time to stop this is killing me
