Track Name: Charming
Lyrics:

How i became charming, likeable and delightful. I sleep very late. I commit suicide at 65%. My life is very cheap, it's only 30% of life for me. My life has 30% of life. It lacks arms, strings and a few buttons. 5% is devoted to a state of semi-lucid stupor accompanied by anaemic crackling. This 5% is called DADA. So life is cheap. Death is a bit more expensive. But life is charming and death is equally charming.

A few days ago I was at a meeting of imbeciles. There were a lot of people there. Everyone was charming. Tristan Tzara, a small, absurd and insignificant individual was giving a lecture on the art of becoming charming. He was charming, at that. Everyone is charming. And witty. It's delightful, isn't it? Everyone is delightful, at that. 9 degrees below zero. It's charming, isn't it? No, it isn't charming. God isn't up to it. He isn't even in the directory. But even so he's charming.

Ambassadors, poets, counts, princes, musicians, journalists, actors, writers, diplomats, directors, dressmakers, socialists, princesses and baronesses are charming. You're all of you charming, very subtle, witty and delightful. Tristan Tzara says to you: he's quite willing to do something else, but he prefers to remain an idiot, a practical joker and a hoaxer. Be sincere for a moment: what I've just said to you - is it charming or idiotic?

Track Name: The Awakening
Lyrics:

Together it comes
Together it falls
Together we’re one
Together we’re all

Awaken today
Awaken to be
Awaken to you
Awaken to me

Forever today
Forever will be
Forever in you
Forever in me

Track Name: Another Near Future
Lyrics:

On – this – dry – sand
Near, not far
In – this – hot – land
Where you are

Turn – to – the – light
Dare to trust
In – this – dark – night
How soon you must

Keep – your – head – down
Stay in line
Look – all – around
All things in Time

Track Name: See Thru Head
Lyrics:

Wait in line for your time to come.
Maybe in this life or maybe the next.
Where’s the joke?
A punch line should go here.
Or at least a chorus,
Or a funky break you can dance to.
