DRAMA!

One rule for us, for you another
Do unto yourself as you see fit for your brother
Is that not within your realm of understanding?
A fifty-second capacity of mind, too demanding?

Woah, then poor unfortunate you
There are a myriad of things that you can do
Like pick up a pen and paper (pick up a pen and paper)
Go and talk to a friend (go and talk to a friend)
The history of the future (history of the future)
No violence or revenge

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty (guilty)
And how you ever entered into this life
God only knows the infinite complexities of love

We all have the ability
Our freedom is fragile
We all laugh and we cry, don’t we?
We all bleed and we smile

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
You are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how you ever entered into this life
God only knows you’re not to sacrifice the art of love

Your shame is never ending
Just one psychological drama after another
We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows the infinite complexities of love

We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows we’re not to sacrifice the art of love

We are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
The Lord only knows the infinite complexities of love

You are guilty (guilty, guilty)
And how we ever entered into this life
God only knows the ultimate necessity of love

SWEET, SWEET BABY

Attention!
Set your atom transmitter at 0 3 5

You are my sweet, sweet baby
You are my sweet, sweet baby
You are my sweet, sweet baby
You are my…Aou! Aou!

Attention! Ship’s computer to bridge

You are my sweet machine
You are my sweet machine
You are my sweet machine
Baby, you are my world!

Aou! Aou!
And you know I really like it

I must disengage your recreational music

You are my sweet, sweet baby
You are my sweet machine
You are my sweet machine
Baby, you are my world!

And you know I really like it

Attention! Ship’s computer to bridge

PARADISE

Hey, now did I tell you that I was going?
Yes, I’m leaving, because there’s no room in this house
You’re just too much in love with yourself

Tired of living in slow motion, gonna make the bubble burst
And fill the ocean with your crocodile tears from your eyes
Instead of swimming against the tide

There are better things that a man can do
Than to waste his time on a no good fool like you

Falling into a pool like paradise
Falling into a pool like paradise

You say that you’re really sorry, but sorry don’t work
When you’ve heard it for the fifty-second time
You should be ready to say goodbye

Tired of your dead-end dreaming
Baby who on earth do you think you’re kidding?
Don’t put another record on, I’m sick of hearing the same old song

Don’t wanna hear your little white lies
They can break the moon and decimate the sky

Falling into a pool like paradise
Falling into a pool like paradise

There are better things that a man can do
Than to waste his time on a no good fool like you

I’ll be going away soon, only time will tell
If I’ll ever be back again
I’ll be going away soon, only time will tell
If I’ll ever be back again

Falling into a pool like paradise
Falling into a pool like paradise
