Track Name: Waving from Mars to me
Waving from Mars to me

You’re from Mars and I’m from Venus
Put your glasses on
But I think it’s quite obvious that
We have grown up as strangers
And you already want us to be neighbors

When I stand on my feet and look at the sky
Try to focus on the moon
But you’re waving from Mars to me
You’re waving from Mars to me

You are Mars and I am Venus
And let’s just say I have a crush on Uranus
And please don’t tell me it drives you nuts cause
You’ve already stolen the little air that I’d got

Chorus

You’re from Mars and I’m from Venus
You stand for strength and I for tenderness and love
But love is something that I cannot give you cause
Heartbeats have to be shared and I can’t hear my heart move

Chorus
Track Name: Pumpkin Pie
Pumpkin Pie

Nice little suburban houses with a smiling guard at the gate
Coming out of every house, a smell of pie
Baked tuna pied, onion pie, chicken pie
Peach pie, plum pie, cherry pie, pie, pie, pie

The neighborhood party has begun
And it pleases us cause it’s all sun and fun
This is all what we’ve been waiting for
This is all what we’ve been working for

Look at my children they are all so smart
They have the best marks and are very good at sports
Don’t tell anybody but I have a little crush on the last one
She already asks for her own apron

Because she wants to be just like mom
Yes, she wants to be just like mom

Cooking and singing in her brand new kitchen
Boiling, stirring, waiting, mixing
Cause mommy’s gonna make a pie
She’s going to make a hell of a pie
She’s going to make her
Pumpkin pie, Pumpkin pie, Pumpkin pie (x3)

The neighborhood pie contest has begun
And she’s going to beat those bitches’ hands down
Make her husband proud, make her children’s eyes glow
And the best moment of her life is when the jury holds her prize out
She’s a winner, she’s a warrior
She’s a winner, she’s a winner
She’s not a loser, she’s not a loser (x5)
Track Name: Waltz
Waltz

In a city, in a crowd
The sun has gone down
But we’re all up

In a street, round a corner
You drag my lazy lips to yours
And then I’m all up

Chorus:

Oh sweet you are
But please low your expectations
Cause my damaged heart
Is a loaded gun
And it hurts anyone who comes around

In a park, on the grass
We lay and watch the ants
Crawling on your face
Crawling on my legs

In my body, in my heart
It itches too much
To stay calm
To stay calm

Chorus

Oh I could really fall for you
But please do not make me promise it to you
Cause I’d rather live this life alone
Than feeling again like a nuclear bomb

Oh sweet you are…
Track Name: Silent Opera
Silent Opera

Birds asleep on the boughs, suffering from vertigo
Keeping their eyes shut to forget the emptiness below
And feel closer to the leaves beyond, and dream about anything else
Than the coldness of the air surrounding them
Like a lion surrounds the gladiator to make him fall

Oh and you can hear your own breath
Because there’s no one else breathing out there
Even a quick trembling wing o’er your shoulder
Only makes you feel lonelier in this silent opera

If you feel there’s a song to be sung
If you feel there’s something to be done
Sing a lullaby to the silence
A lullaby to the silence…
To the silence so it finally can get some rest
So it finally can get some rest
Like anybody else
