Track Name: 21st Century Glory
Load your pockets with dough
Work like a dog stop thinking with words
Oh lord I can’t choose this lifestyle

Might need some time to adapt
The way things work is best for us all
Oh lord what a joke they pull on us

They hired a new girl a couple year younger
Free beer with every meal but why would any bother

Shut in the basement your hopes
Yeah why not selling your soul you can buy the whole world
And have one of those rich burials

How much would it be for you doll?
Four weeks per year is all the you’ve got
The happily walk with glory and might

Shine all the four wheels for toilet use this bucket
When mixter Shinny comes please show him to his locker

My head got so tired baby
Still trying to save what matters to me

My head got so tired bay
Still trying to save what’s dear to me
Track Name: Love And Other Demons
Churches won’t stay open at night any more
The Saviour needs some rest so all the evenings he’ll be off
The thief and the cobbler won’t cry for her love
The king is safe her dignity is restored

She told me that she saw once a fairy south in Spain
Wearing sunglasses and smoking like a train
She asked her is it getting any better on the way
“If I knew I wouldn’t be here today my child”

Hold me hand this time might be forever
Strange enough love doesn’t always stay

She well not to fall in love a boy from the south
The never bath they only sing cute stories for lost crowns
And when the night comes they might treat you with their tricks
They whisper to your ear when you sleep

Oh India is thousand miles away ain’t worth
Go just for two weeks you will miss why you came for
A toy air balloon and I’m scared if I fit
Well bring it on ain’t gonna sleep on it honey

Hold me hand this time might be forever
Strange enough love doesn’t always stay
