Pull yourself together and fall in love with me

Official video. Music, words and images by Cold Mailman.

What now, muhammed?

What have I done
What have I made, what have I turned to gold
I am but one
I am afraid, but I can learn from the bold
What can I do
What can I say, what can I celebrate
What about you
You ran away, out of the track they made

What have I done
What have I made, what have I burned to coal
I am a son
A razorblade incision through your soul
What will I be
What will I look back on when I am old
Beyond the sea
Somebody's laughing at the dice I rolled

Pull yourself together and fall in love with me

christian ballerina come fly away with me
fly me to the moon, let me down and leave me be
now i don't mean to burden you with my uncertainty
but halfway or the highway is the only way, you see

listen to yourself and your ambiguity
the way you talk it sounds just like i'm on bended knee
now i know i'm a good girl and i know that you agree
so pull yourself together now and fall in love with me

just because my head's stuck in 2002
doesn't mean i don't wish i'd fall in love with you
and just because i'm nowhere near prepared to say ‘i do’
doesn't mean that all the things i've told you aren't true

if you're on a quest for divine security
i suggest that you bow down to the referee
now i know i'm a good girl and i know that you agree
so pull yourself together now and fall in love with me
pull yourself together and fall in love with me

Petra Pan

Growing up isn't giving up
It isn't giving in to unspeakable sin
You should know
that none of us are in this so-called game to win
But the state you're in
would indicate that you believe
that there's someone trying to relieve you of
all your hopes and dreams and leave you numb

Tables turn and pre-conceptions burn,
but you just stay as you are
You keep scratching your self-inflicted scar
Letting go of something
isn't letting go of everything
But the state you're in
would indicate that you believe
that there's someone trying to relieve you of
all your hopes and dreams and leave you numb

But there is no one holding a gun
to your head forcing you to run
From this chance you've been given
So just grow up and start living

Fatal conversation

I was once told
how to appear both young and old
How to shape and mold
any situation that might unfold
Words were exchanged
under circumstances that fate arranged
During our embrace
this fatal conversation alledgedly took place

You said:
You take my breath away
And I said:
What does that mean anyway
And you said:
I don't know but I know that you do
please just let me be with you

I once learned
how to escape cause and effect
How to disconnect
from the laws that gods protect
You told me
how to let go and how to be free
C-A-U-S-E A-N-D E-F-F-E-C-T

Relax; the mountain will come to you
Relax; the mountain will come to you
Sit back, calm down, i will comfort you

Salva me

Talk to pretty people and pull their pretty strings
Ask the pretty people to give you pretty wings
until your belly stings from all the needles you've swallowed through the day
I bet that in the evening you lie alone and pray
for someone to take it all away

The road to a meaningful and wonderous life
goes through believing what you know is right
So save me and all the words I've lost along the way

Sail your sea forever if just to watch the stars
Concrete mourns in silence while you project your scars
along with everything you are your lack of meaning in life is juxtaposed
And all this makes you see we're all born and die as ghosts
It's the thought you fear the most

The road to a meaningful and wonderous life
goes through believing what you know is right
So save me and all the words I've lost along the way

Tell me that none of this is true
Tell me the force is strong with you
Tell me that this is what you do
and i'll believe you

Time is of the essence

building a time machine
is easy when you are alone
but sad as it may have been
it got you a dinosaur bone

I'm lee ranaldo and i'm thurston moore
I am the stranger that lurks at you door
and I guarantee that wherever we go
I've been there before

touring the riot scene
to see just how far you've been thrown
but as long as your grass is green
it may just turn you into stone

I'm lee ranaldo and I'm thurston moore
I am the stranger that lurks at you door
and I guarantee that wherever we go
I've been there before

play
hide and seek
kill the freak
with a tear on your cheek
and a smile on your face
fall from grace
into place
spending your days
longing to play...

Back in your bed

For ten minutes you were gone
You'd vanished and I convinced myself you were dead
But then there you were like nothing had happened
And I was back in your bed

You showed me gravity and how to defy it
Became a part of me without ever trying
I miss you and I won't deny it
'cause grief-ridden as they were those days were the best I ever had

I fell overboard and broke the first rule in the book
of love and stupidity
But you cleaned of my sword
I spoke, too scared to even look
Too stupid to see

You showed me gravity and how to defy it
Became a part of me without ever trying
I miss you and I won't deny it
'cause grief-ridden as they were those days were the best I ever had

If all this was part of your plan
of making me prove I'm a man
then hit me as hard as you can,
make me part of your band
It's a modest demand

I showed you my idea, but you wouldn't buy it
Became a parody without ever trying
And will miss you as long as you keep dying

Exploding potion of home

The road is icy
Sky is cold
The streets are empty
and I am old
I tried to live here
Tried to stay
But turned to wither all away

But I face the truth
and try to put myself in the shoes
of those for whom wasted youth isn't even worth talking about

My perceverance is at stake
Your love just isn't mine to make
I tried to tell you
tried to say
I'd hate to let this
just fade away

'Cause under these hills and sheltering mountains
I've lost my skills and my ability to
face the truth and try to put myself in the shoes
of those for whom wasted youth isn't something worth talking about

Katrina

Katrina
How can you do this to me?
I've seen her being washed off to sea
I need her
but she needed oxygen to breathe
And I don't need to have been there
to know he's a tough one to reach

Believers
raise your hands
you'll have turned around by tomorrow
If you'd seen what I've seen
you'd never question my sorrow

In no time
I'm up to my neck in your filth
I won't climb
'cause the levee was never even built
I don't mind drinking the milk that you've spilled
'cause I've lost mine
and all I need is courage and a quilt

Believers
raise your hands
you'll have turned around by tomorrow
If you'd seen what I've seen
you'd never question my sorrow
Believers
turn around!
You'll be safe and sound by tomorrow
If you'd seen what I've seen
you'd never question my sorrow

Katrina…

The end of the day

it's the end of the day
and i think it's safe to say
that i'm ready to go home
all I wonder is why you would ever deny
that you are of flesh and bone

and this is the last song i'll ever write about you
i'm changing the topic into something new

now it's all about me and my
co-dependency
which is of no importance anymore
i see that nothing has changed
into the better, yet i've reached
a temporary shore

and this is the last song…

say goodbye to that which don't do you good

Lullaby

The source of income you may choose will not control you
nor put you in a cage, but merely help you pull through
You say you're void of hopes and dreams, and you're decaying
I could tell you we're invincible, you'd still be saying:

‘Is it all we are?’

The course of history is not easy to alter
Compare them to the sea, your tears will still taste salter
You feel your list of possibilities is shrinking
I could tell you everything is love, you'd still be thinking:

‘Is it all we are?’
