About This Album

Lyrics

  • Medazzaland

    (Oh, Medazzaland)
    I have a problem, they said they can solve
    Soon I won’t speak
    I have no words left in me
    I dream in pictures
    But the sound is muted
    I have no way to understand what they say
    (Into Medazzaland)
    People are starting to talk
    But I don’t hear them anymore
    Now I can’t see
    But I am still able to think
    Do I have any feeling left?
    What are they saying about me?
    Do they really understand what’s wrong?
    I feel their hands on my skin
    The time has come for them to begin
    I’m sinking deeper and deeper
    Into Medazzaland
    I can feel the scalpel on my skin
    It’s cutting in
    Deeper and deeper
    I’m in Medazzaland
    (Oh Medazzaland)

  • Falling into space
    At the end of time
    Black as the black in your eye
    Staring through a hole in the ozone
    There’s nobody home
    To play back your ansaphone
    Climax out of blue
    Is it just another high?
    No there must be something new
    Now that I’m so alien

    Entering the atmosphere
    Don’t know what is waiting here (oh no)
    If there’s nothing left to fear
    When they come together in
    the Big Bang Generation

    Teardrop in the sky
    Bursting my eye
    Sound of morning sighs
    This life is stranger than fiction
    Surreal addiction
    It’s all I recognize
    Feeding off the habit
    Losing control
    Where is it leading to?
    Now that I’m the alien

    Entering the atmosphere
    Don’t know what is waiting here
    If there’s nothing left to fear
    When we come together in
    the Big Bang Generation

    (Feel like I'm losing control)
    Big Bang Generation
    (Now that I'm here alone)
    Big Bang Generation
    (Feel like I'm losing control)
    Big Bang Generation
    (Feel like I'm losing it)
    We’re gonna come together here

    Where you coming from?
    When we gonna burn out? Don’t know
    Having so much fun
    Greetings from the Big Bang Generation
    Big Bang Generation

    Meet you in the Big Bang Generation
    Together in the Big Bang Generation
    Together we're the Big Bang Generation

  • I knew when I first saw you on the showroom floor
    You were made for me
    I took you home and dressed you up in polyester
    Princess of my dreams
    Emotionless and cold as ice
    All of the things I like
    The way you look
    The way you move
    The sound you’re makin’
    In ultra-chrome, latex and steel

    I plug you in
    Dim the lights
    Electric Barbarella
    Your perfect skin
    Plastic kiss
    Electric Barbarella
    Try to resist
    Then we touch
    Hallucinate and tranquilize

    (she’s so fine)
    (she’s all mine)

    Our private life is subject to investigation
    No time to waste
    People say they heard about our deviation
    But you never looked so good
    Wear the fake fur and fake pearls for me
    And put on your mystery
    The way I feel you know
    I'll never keep you waiting
    In ultra-chrome, latex and steel

    I plug you in
    Dim the lights
    Electric Barbarella
    Your perfect skin
    Plastic kiss
    Electric Barbarella
    Try to resist
    Then we touch
    Hallucinate and tranquilize

    Princess of my dreams
    Princess of my dreams
    Major domo plasticomo Barbarella
    (She’s so fine)
    Pro-genetic you Electric Barbarella
    (She’s all mine)
    My pretty pretty pretty pretty Barbarella

  • Light a candle
    Lay flowers at the door
    For those who were left behind
    And the ones who’ve gone before
    But here it comes now
    Sure as silence follows rain
    The taste of you upon my lips
    The fingers in my brain
    Ever gentle as it kills me where I lay
    Who am I to resist?
    Who are you to fail?

    Got to get you out of my mind
    But I can’t escape from the feeling
    As I try to leave the memory behind
    Without you what’s left to believe in?

    And I could be so sorry
    For the way it had to go
    But now I feel your presence
    In a way I could not know
    And I wonder
    Do you ever feel the same
    In whispering darkness
    Do you ever hear my name?

    Got to get you out of my mind
    But I can’t escape from the feeling
    As I try to leave the memory behind
    Without you, what’s left to believe in?

    How could you dare
    To become so real
    When you’re just a ghost in me

    And I’ve got to get you out of my mind
    But I can’t escape from the feeling
    As I try to leave the memory behind
    Without you, what’s left to believe in?

    Here in the back of my mind

    Deep in the back of my mind

  • I’m giving you the news
    Your domination’s through
    You gave the best you’ve got
    Now I’m out on top

    If you’re in any doubt
    Listen to me
    I’ve got a right to say
    If you know what it’s all about
    Who do you think you are?

    Don’t want to be your enemy
    If I’m not the one you want me to be
    And I’ve got to do things the way that I do

    Always trying to control me
    Who do you think you are?

    Our time on earth is running through
    (This is not a question of my pride)
    Sometimes I think it’s a game to you
    (Ever wonder how I feel inside?)
    And sometimes I play along
    But man I’ve got a mind!

    You’ve got to live with yourself
    For the rest of you life
    Do you understand?
    Everybody asks themselves the question
    Who do you think you are?

    Why do you feel ashamed
    When you can’t explain the things I say
    To other people

    It's just occurred to me
    A possibility
    The thought that you might really want to be me?

  • You shine
    Where others fade
    You dare
    To be so brave

    Don’t compromise
    No one can touch you
    Just believe
    Just believe

    Come to heaven, silva halo
    Come to heaven, silva halo
    Silva halo
    Silva halo

  • I follow you, I wait for you
    You know there’s no escape from me
    You’re more than wallpaper in my room

    I write you letters and bring you gifts
    I’m going through all your trash
    I love you so much,
    I keep your cigarette butts

    Now is the time to come out
    Come out of the shadows

    No need to be scared
    You’re gonna be so happy
    I built you a shrine
    Now you can Be My Icon

    I’m out on the edge
    There’s no way back inside
    All my friends are gone
    They didn’t understand me

    It makes so much sense
    It’s no coincidence
    Just you and I alone here
    And I need you
    Oh

    How many hours have I stared at my face in the mirror
    I get worried sometimes that the image will shatter

    No need to be scared
    You’re gonna be so happy
    I built you a shrine
    Now you can be my icon
    No need to be
    Scared
    Now you can
    Be My Icon

    I know this is real
    Believe it
    We belong together
    What ever happens
    You’re gonna be with me
    Forever

    Be my icon
    You will be my icon
    Be my icon
    you will be my icon

  • Can’t say that I was surprised
    When you broke the ties
    They were hanging by a thread
    But now I have realized
    It couldn’t be the same
    Cause everything has changed
    And still I held out my hand
    Tried to pull you back
    But you were buried in the sand

    I’m glad that you came along
    But here our journey ends
    I say goodbye to you
    My very dear friend

    You were buried in the sand.
    Head buried in the sand.
    You were buried in the sand.
    Head buried in the sand.
    You are buried in the sand.

  • I came over your place today
    In a roundabout sort of way
    Nothing holding me
    Just the company
    Gentle giving the afternoon

    Don’t ever try to be any more
    Michael, you’ve got a lot to answer for
    You unlocked some of the doors
    To my soul

    And I don’t see you for awhile
    Thinkin of you will make me smile
    You never bother me with responsibility
    Misbehaving in candlelight

    Don’t ever try to give any more
    Michael, you’ve got a lot to answer for
    You got me wakin up wise to the world

    Trust you to get caught up in somebody’s war
    You’ll come out of it all in time, I’m sure
    Just remember what friends were put here for
    Michael, you’ve got a lot to answer for

    And I know that you’re gonna call
    If you need me
    When you need me
    If you need me

  • As I watch you flickering slowly
    In the shadows, nothing to hold
    It’s as if I don’t recall our time before
    And would it be so wrong
    Not to remember?

    There are times I look at you differently
    Like I’d never seen you before
    Funny after all we’ve done
    You could be someone I don't know at all
    (Don’t know you at all)

    Catch me I don’t want to fall

    But you pull the mountain from under me
    Look, I’m dangling up in the blue
    And it’s a cartoon coyote eternity
    Before I drop down to you
    What am I supposed to do now?

    There is something beautiful shining
    In the far off night of your hair
    Funny for a while it seemed to come from the sky
    But it’s in your head
    Yes it fills your head

    You and I don’t always fly
    Let me go I want to fall
    Deep into the dark
    But I’ll get back to you
    And I’ll always know how to find you
    Cause you shine like the midnight sun

    Yes I'll always be here beside you
    When I follow the midnight sun

    Follow follow follow the midnight sun.

  • Do you know how to feel?
    Do you know what it means?

    Rock-a-bye baby it’s time to break
    The habit that you fed
    Sweet sorrow while the cherished dead
    Blow in my mouth, every breath I take
    Although I need you I don’t want to bleed for you

    So long suicide
    Going right out of sight, out of mind
    Leave me alone and abandoned
    Hello, I’m alive
    I’m loaded alive, yes I know
    In my bones I know what is going to do it for me

    I steal the beauty and I taste the hurt
    There’s always time for pretty flowers
    growing in the dirt
    But time is your needle aimed to my heart
    And I must be hollow because I can't follow there

    So long suicide
    Gone right out of sight, out of mind
    Leaving me alone and abandoned
    Hello, I’m alive
    I’m loaded alive and I know
    In my bones I know what I’m good for
    Hello I’m alive
    I’m loaded alive yes I know
    In my bones I know what I'm doing

    And I’m scared of being ordinary
    God I swear to live like anyone
    And you know it’s hard to swallow
    But life goes on

    And after all this crash and swell
    We are just human
    And after all is said and done
    We’re only human
    You’re out of sight and out of mind
    I’m saying so long suicide

    The half dreamed shade of yesterday
    In bloom tomorrow

  • We are undergoing treatment
    Watching others in the news
    Studying our worst reviews
    They say we’ll get over it
    Disappear like dinosaurs
    To the sound of small applause
    Resign to the mid-price section

    If you see me walking in the garden
    Don’t ever ask me for an autograph
    If you ever catch me in the arcade
    Don’t even stop me for a photograph

    We are undergoing treatment
    'Til our ethic fits the scene
    Laid out in Q Magazine
    They crave our conformity
    Mediocre to the bone
    Terrified testosterone
    But why do we still face the music?

    If you see me walking in the garden
    Don’t ever ask me...

    Now and then you get the strangest notion
    That there’s something missing
    But it keeps you guessing
    Wild ambition can you really blame us?
    Can you entertain us?
    Can you give a little more?

    If you see me walking in the garden
    Don’t ever ask me for an autograph
    If you ever catch me in the arcade
    Don’t even stop me for a photograph

    We are undergoing treatment
    But will the doctors ever cure
    These delusions of grandeur?
