Track Name: Fearless Adventurer
Ferociously intelligent boy
Frail and frightened to the bone
Strange half-baked creature
You grow on me

Stubborn belligerent soul
Never giving up at all
Skillful articulated cheat
You grow on me

Seldomly happy child too smart for your own good
Your blond head boiling with far-fetched stories
Brooding up a cloud on the moon
A story unfolds of a life of your own

Cruel but captivating brother
Unaware of your impact on the world
Bold emotional actor
You grow on me

Affectionately demanding son,
Desperate for attention and love
Fearsome dreamer of a child
You grow on me

Seldomly happy child too smart for your own good
Your blond head boiling with far-fetched stories
Brooding up a cloud on the moon
A story unfolds of a life of your own
Track Name: Cloud Shepherd
Light coming out of a key hole,
Wind and shadows at your door,
A demure cloud brooding upon rainy thoughts.

Feel the pain drops falling down your neck and lay down
Just enjoy the playground of a demure ...
Cloud standing far away from the flock he used to say
'Sheep fall down the hill, give me the storm I want to feel'

He was born under a moody moon
He was born under a moody moon

Stand aside, lightning battle in the sky
Exploding in the pouring rain.
Track Name: Sidewalk Empire
Streets are empty and the moon is asleep
The city silent is a frightening beast
Sparks of light on the railway tracks
The train is there, yet the sun is dark

You laughed at me. I shut the door,
I got myself a new heart at the one pound store

I flip a coin, you wish me luck,
But when it's time, my feet get stuck
Sad luck gamblers on a cigarette break
And a low -life dreamer with a broken heart

You laughed at me, I shut the door,
I got myself a new heart at the one pound store
Why won't you love me no more ?
Why won't you love me no more ?

Walking down the boulevard, I don't feel the same,
I feel like a stranger on a boat with no name.
I'll turn into a fox and set the church on fire
Cause foxes rule over the sidewalk empire

You laughed at me, I shut the door,
I got myself a new heart at the one pound store
Why won't you love me no more ?

I end up drunk on a stool at the bar,
I can't remember how I got that far.
The girl next to me tries a "Hello stranger"
And I burst into tears because you look like her

You laughed at me, I shut the door,
I got myself a new heart at the one pound store
Why won't you love me no more ?
Track Name: L'indomptable
Je vois que l’on ne peux pas te dompter
Je crois savoir pourquoi y renoncer

Toi qui était si jeune et fière
Toi qui vantais ton coeur de pierre
Jamais non jamais une fois ne t’es-tu préoccupée de moi

Si je le pouvais je ne saurais te sauver
Si je le voulais je ne pourrais t’effacer

Toi qui était si jeune et fière
Toi qui vantais ton coeur de pierre
Jamais non jamais une fois ne t’es-tu préoccupée de moi
Track Name: Jockey Full Of Bourbon (Tom Waits cover)
Edna Million in a drop dead suit
Dutch pink pink on a downtown train
Two dollar pistol but the gun won't shoot
I'm in the corner in the pouring rain
16 men on a deadman's chest
And I've been drinking from a broken cup
2 pairs of pants and a mother vest
I'm full of bourbon; I can't stand up.

Hey little bird, fly away home
Your house is on fire; your children are alone
Hey little bird, fly away home
Your house is on fire; your children are alone

Schiffer broke a bottle on Morgan's head
And I've been stepping on the devil's tail
Across the stripes of full moon's head
Through the bars of a Cuban jail

Bloody fingers on a purple knife
A flamingo drinking from a cocktail glass
I'm on the lawn with someone else's wife
Come admire the view from up on top of the mast

[Chorus]

Yellow sheets in Hong Kong bed
Stazybo horn and a Singerland ride
To the carnival is what she said
A hundred dollars makes it dark inside.
Track Name: The Snatcher
Today I stole a newborn for you darling
I found him on the front door of the corner laundry
I snatched the pram at dusk, they didn't see me coming,
And now I drive the highways to bring him to you darling

You don't have a clue, do you ?
What I would do to be with you

At dawn we're still driving, I turned into a rearview mirror
A hard sun is melting the ground and my tires
Spraying baby's cheeks with your favourite water gun,
I smile, I smoke, I shouldn't but the windows are open

You don't have a clue, do you ?
What I would do to be with you

I turn on the radio and hear that in the news
All they talk about is a snatcher wearing red shoes
I feel like a rhino, bursting into flames,
I’ll be your magic cowboy, now will you be my dame ?

You don't have a clue, do you ?
What I would do to be with you.

UNKNOWN WHITE MALE, POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS,
DO NOT TRY TO STOP HIM! DO NOT TRY TO STOP HIM!

Above my head I see, flying in circles,
Hungry vultures willing to catch me with their claws
And when I scream your name out from my window
I see you standing there but I think you don't know

You don't have a clue, do you ?
What I would do to be with you.
