1. Scratch the Skin (3:39)
I cannot act anymore
Only react once more
The goddamn itch on my brain
I conceal with other pains
I tried to plan all my days
But who could stop the changes?
And when the pressure prevails
I have to use my fingernails

I find my flesh
Where I thought to find my soul
Call me victim
My favourite role

No reason to find
It's not my body, it's my mind
Suffering here all alone
I'm getting down to the bones
You tell me nothing will last
But am I aging too fast?
Still I am locked in this shell
Allergic to my own self

I find my flesh
Where I thought to find my soul
Call me victim
My favourite role

Who doesn't need
Need to be free?
I scratch the skin
I scratch the skin
That imprisons me
Everything else
Failed when I tried
To find myself
I Scratch the skin to get outside

You tell me nothing will last
But am I aging too fast?
Still I am locked in this shell
Allergic to my own self
2. Live to Start Again (3:04)
Bow down when you pray to me
Kiss me when you betray me
Carry my cross through the night
Help to kill when I choose life

I am no Jesus Christ
I'm just a common man
I will not die and live
Live to start again

Touch my woundings, close my eyes
Tell me that your love's a lie
Through flesh and wood
You drive the nails
Make me feel my life has failed

I am no Jesus Christ
I'm just a common man
I will not die and live
Live to start again

The grace of God is much too small
Is much too small, too small for me
Why hast thou forsaken me?
I will not
Live to start again
3. Bright Side of Leprocy (4:01)
Television is my only window
To the world
I'm lying on my sofa and there is
Nothing to disturb
The peace that I can feel when
I am with you all the time
But I smile while you die
I could be happy with the
Situation I'm born in
I spent my youth in school and
Finally learned something
You don't have to be rich but you
Have to win
You may think I'm an asshole
I think you are right
'Cause them not me
Is the bright side of leprosy
Them not me
Must be the bright side of
Leprosy

Do I really have to be connected
With despair?
That happens in a country though
I've never been there
And all I wanna do is watching TV
from my chair
I know I'm guilty
This can't be the news this has
To be a nightmare
Things my eyes don't want to see
I cover with my hair
If there is anyone who knows
Is there anyone who knows?
Though this is not a ballad and
I'm not Hollis Brown
But them not me
Must be the bright side of
Leprosy
4. Push Me Off the Windowsill (4:05)
I expected heaven
But now I'm on TV
No living god to judge my sins
Just astonished stupidity
Staring at me - staring at me
I expected freedom
I expected peace

An exhibitionist whore
On the 11th floor
Come on, you'll get some more
Just watch it 'til the end
I was already dead
Here come the slow motion
Push me once again

I expected freedom, I expected peace
But now I want for a commercial break
To find myself release
5 minutes of peace - 5 minutes of peace
I expected heaven
But I found reality

An exhibitionist whore
On the 11th floor
Come on, you'll get some more
Just watch it 'til the end
I was already dead
Here come the slow motion
Push me once again

Real blood - real tears
Fucked up reality
"Do you want to see me die?"

I expected silence, a place without a sound
Place your cameras all around
To shoot my body down
Shattered on the ground
I expected silence
But even death disappoints me now

There is some blood to spill
Push me off the windowsill
To prove that looks can kill
Watch it 'till the end
This is reality
Just what you want to see
Your fun - your misery
Push me once again
5. Mole (0:41)
6. Mentally Handicapped Enterprise (4:06)
I can feed 4 handicapped people
In about 5 minutes time
I'm getting faster every day
I don't get paid for doing time
We always used to spend the money
Now it's time for us to count
You can put 10 in one bedroom
and you'll get the better amount

Live inside like outside
Get to know reality
Mentally handicapped enterprise
Must be free

I decide for you what's right
Cause someone else decided so
And if you do not like it here
There'll be a time-out room to go to
And if you think you need a bit more
Of my attention go insane
The only way someone can veto
Is my opening his veins

Live inside like outside
Get to know reality
Mentally handicapped enterprise
Must be free

And if you feel a bit forced by me
There is only one thing for you to do
And that's to
Take these pills
Take this medicine
Forget your pocket money
And go to bed early
Mentally handicapped enterprise
Must be free

This is business
This is a factory
Masa carnis
No human being

Live inside like outside
Get to know reality
Mentally handicapped enterprise
Must be free
