Track Name: Cells
Your blood is thick like petroleum,
War is written in your cells

Your holy book orders me,
Go and live against your cells
Your holy book orders me,
But how could I live against my cells?

I only see shark tails and rattlesnakes

Your blood is thick like petroleum,
War is written in your cells

Cells: ("Cel-les, cèl-lules")

La teva sang es espesa, com el petroli. La guerra està escrita en les teves cèl·lules.
El teu llibre sagrat m’ordena que vagui i visqui en contra de les meves cel·lules.
El teu llibre sagrat m’ho ordena, però com podria viure jo així?
Track Name: The Iron Ship
I took my baby to the shore and left him,

arms up aboard, full sail,

the others said; -take it as it goes-,
I just fell to pieces,

what’s life after all but a long goodbye?



I took my baby to the docks, where we built our playgrounds,

soon understood the meaning of the fog and the clenched fist,

and one day said; -will it make you proud, mum, if I sail the bottomless waters, and join the army of the iron faced ship?



Mother dressed me up, tied my bag and watched me leave, 
said remember son, you’ve got a bond to keep

Years and weeks and passed,
I never heard from him,
Now the captain is crazy and keeps a book with our faults,
Sleeps with one eye open, and talks with the boat
As I lay with one and open I can feel his face hovering over my head
Says nobody is going to take you home and save you

I’ve seen the ship eat little children,
With sharp teeth made of nails

I saw you playin’ a part,
Your spirit being taken

Mother dressed me up, tied my back and bury me in
Don’t tell me now I’ve got a bond to keep,
Mother dressed me up, tied my back to the belly of the ship
Don’t tell me now you’ve got a bond to keep,

(...)

on the beach, some kids play with some carcass;
and sing
"we don't fear no the iron ship"
Track Name: Will you hold my hand?
If I was to meet myself, first question I would ask is why don't you trust me as I want you to and you say no way I will come back there.
Someone is been travelling on my back,
far too much time
Track Name: Peppermint Parade
There are cars and such modern things,
over Peppermint Parade,
some angel perched upon a roof,
counts all the souls carrying your name,

In every family at least there's one
who says forever i will stay eith you there
where you brought solace, where you live,
Hope,
over Peppermint Parade.

And I wandered there and it was wonderful
where the way to a change is the way to be,
I like girls who are wild, well, she was plain mad,
yes she was wonderful
where the way to a change is the way to be.

There are cars and such modern things,
over Peppermint Parade,
but all of them where quiet,
I heard no noise,
when I saw you standing there,
under the porch of your house, all lights there once met
oh forever I will stay with you there,
where you brought solace, where you live,
Hope,
over Peppermint Parade.
Track Name: The Cat Song
excuse me but I don't speak your language
your talk sounds like a bark,
will it ever stop?
excuse me but I don't speak your language
we only agree in discussion, we just can't get along
I don't need to believe in a right or a wrong,
but you do
yes you do
Track Name: There's no need for words
well,
there's no need for words
