Skin & Pain






Lady Placebo

She´s got her lips
always ready for a kiss.
She says,
I know that life means more than this
and while stroking her hair
and laughing so smart,
she says,
- taking drugs is a kind of art,
you don't feel the pain
of your empty heart.
All the places I have been
people cried out

- Lady P. is the Queen -

but a vacuum head isn't an empty heart.
So keep attention
that you won't die with those
who died before on this boredom overdose.

 

Skin and Pain

Ocean's deep
we ignore it for a while
having fun that even
Buster Keaton's gonna smile.

I fulfill all your wishes
by giving you Skin and Pain.
Oh, I believe I could steal the Sun
and the Lord above
will cry in vain.

I don't know
if it´s Bourbon, Speed or the Moon
by your side
I feel so safe
even safer than
in a prison room.

Ocean's deep
we ignore it for a while having
fun that even
Buster Keaton's gonna smile.



Do you think I should?

She stops talking
and her eyes tum sad -
do you think
my thoughts are mad?
­She says
you don't love me,
you don't love me anymore!
Life is a perverted kick,
do you think
my thoughts are sick?
Do you think I should?
­She's got a whole power-station
in her heart.

That's what she wants
that's what she needs
and that's what she'll get.

You don't love me
you don't love me anymore!
Life is a perverted kick,
do you think
my thoughts are sick?
Do you think I should?
She's got a whole power-station
in her heart.

My Baby says,
she needs me,
but she never needs
what she gets.


Never be kind

Today l could start a career
like those women who learned their lesson
oh so well
anything they could teach me
is that what makes me pity men.

I could try to learn to make photos or write
be a manager or even politician
or be the Queen of the nightshow
possibilities are all in one
and one is not enough.

They say paint your eyes
and paint your fingernails
be positive and work,
but I´m much better in my room
watching changes grow and meditate
which way to go.

I always was a shy person
watching before I moved
needed confidence to love
and sincerity to be
even vices could not break this rule.

Smiling I show them my rotten teeth
and say - Doctor says they are all allright
sickness must be deep inside of me
and energy somewhere
but this trouble
is mine.

I want to be soft
and I want to be wild
sometimes proud
and sometimes shy
but I hope
yes I hope
that I'll never
I'll never be kind.



I call it just

Anxiously try to recollect
the rags of yesterday's faces and dreams
but I can't, no I can't
too many tears in my glass
I can't remember

Voulais etre ta femme pour toujours
mais toujours
il est passé.

Too many drinks in my brain
No regrets
I swore I´d never regret anything
Some call it sad
I call it just

Wanted to be your wife forever
but forever
passed.

Some call it sad
but I call it just
Voulais etre ta femme pour toujours
mais toujours
il est passé.

Anxiously try to recollect
the rags of yesterday's tears and fears
but I can't, no I can't
too much of a smile in the eyes
of my friends
I can't remember.

Voulais etre ta femme pour toujours
mais toujours
il est passé.


Ain't it time

I hate you
I despise you
ain't it time for you to go?

When you talk you complain,
that's why I hate you
I despise you.
Ain't it time for you to go?


Sick of Sermons

I hate you for my deepest needs
as you surely know them.
It ain't difficult
cause I'm busy telling you
all day long about
what I want
and what I need
and what I don't get.
You always have to remind me
of what I already got.

Why do I always nag for something else?
Why do I always long for something else?
Why do I always nag for something else?
Why can't I stop to preach,
when I'm so deep in a mess,
that I can't help me out myself?
Why don't I listen only once
to what you don't say?
Why don't I try to stop
to control every situation
and insist that I do already know?

I need someone to lend me a hand
but I wouldn't take it.
wouldn't take it anyway.
I need shelter!
I want to know you,
I want to feel you.
understand you

I need someone to lend me a hand
but I wouldn't take it
wouldn't take it anyway
I have to surrender sometimes
finally learn to surrender


One Of These Days

these days
I'm gonna leave my man

One of

these days
and he for sure will cry
and I for sure will cry
but I'll finally learn
to walk alone again.

One of

these days
I'm gonna shoot my man
and he can't hurt me no more
and he can't leave me no more
and he won't touch
no other woman no more.

One of

these days
and he'll be finally
MINE.
