Track Name: Carpenter of Tripolis
I arrive the place where I am free
Up, above you all and nobody see
Just hang around or party all day long
I can choose what I’m looking for, looking for

(Will you ever see the place in the sky
Or are you gonna go down if you die?)

Visit friends on earth, but even they don’t see
I’m invisible now, am I really free?
No touch, no love, no respect, no one cares
If I am up or down the stairs, invisible stairs

(Will you ever see the place in the sky
Or are you gonna go down if you die?)

I arrive the place where I am free
Up, above you all and nobody see
Just hang around or party all day long
I can choose what I’m looking for, looking for
Track Name: Mr. Teeny's Last Cigarette
Hey kids, do you remember
The story I told you once,
About my time, when my arms become long
And I want to take my chance?
I took my breast full of this smoke
And then I met this crazy clown
I never laughed about his jokes
Oh god, why can’t he drown?

So now I will kill him
I’m gonna shoot him down to ground
To get wild and free
Take just one last cigarette
One swig from my whiskey, oh,
It will be my time

Look on the colors on my coat
And at the cigarette in his eye
I will take my chance another time
And go up to sky
Burn his foolish shoes
And his bogus hair
I’ll take a picture and I think
I’m gonna share
Track Name: PPF
See this little pigeons flying over my realm
Rats of the sky, so ugly, I wanna kill
Oh look, the ground is dirty
Wanna see their blood beside their dung
That would be nice
Never leave them up to the sky

Pigeons gonna die, gonna die

The only animals, wich don’t belong to me so long
I have the masterplan to show them, who is the King-Kong
The eagles on my side, they will help
To get the pigeons down and ripping their hearts out
Never leave them up to the sky

Pigeons gonna die, oh, they gonna die

See the blood is falling down on the earth
This is the beginning, yes something like a birth
Of a quiet and nice place, it’s gonna by my world
Give me the pigeon, don’t say a word

Oh, look in the sky, so clean and the sky is so blue
Can’t see no pigeon, not even in the zoo
Oh, so much thanks to the eagles
They help my catching all of the rats, nobody fly
Never leave them up the sky

Pigeons gonna die, gonna die!
Track Name: Turtlerider
Welcome to my world
Come in and take a look
It is my paradise
Better than your picture book
I am the king now
The lions are away
They all obey my babe
I am the sense of their pray
Riding on the back of a turtle
Which has just one eye

The trees are so green
You can pick every fruit
Don’t be so shy, just taste one
They are so juice and so cute
Come on baby, sit down
Do you like what you see?
Then be nice and stay
Come around and marry me!

They all obey me babe, I’m riding on the back of a turtle

You will get a crown like mine
Just little smaller and trim
The other animals will sing for us
Our new Apewards-Hymn
We can climb all day now
Or I can fly you to the sun
You can ride on the back of a turtle
You will be so stun

They all obey me babe, I’m riding on the back of a turtle

You are what I deserve
In my big kingdom, girl
Oh baby just let swerve
You are my monkey-pearl
