Track Name: Johnny
I met him in a basement bar
Amongst the shine of diode stars
He said to me his name was Johnny
I knew that he was a commie
He had the deepest bluest eyes
I bought each of his filthy lies
I knew his crimes were undetected
My heart completely unprotected

Oh Johnny, I know so well you’re good for nothing
Oh Johnny, nothing matters anymore

I’ve had my faith and I’ve always served well
My country first and the rest would follow
I could never fear, I could never doubt
But now none of this matters
My little world has been shattered
Finally I’m free, but I can’t get out

Oh Johnny, I know so well you’re good for nothing
Oh Johnny, nothing matters anymore when you’re around

A red star stuck on his leather jacket
He says it’s just out of force of habit
I saw his eyes on the rising sun
My heart is caught in confusion
My soul has been disillusioned
Could I ever stop what I have begun?

Oh Johnny…

Don’t you answer any of my questions
Don’t you tell me any of your secrets
Don’t you ever tell me anything at all
Oh Johnny
Track Name: Destroy the Heart
You must break their heart
Right from the start
You must, you must destroy the heart

I see them sitting by the telephone
They moan and they groan when they’re all alone
Their skin is grey and cold as stone
They will suck your soul right from the bone
They never close their eyes at night
They’ll never let you out of sight
They don’t run fast, but they will bite
They will cling to you with all their might

It is love that caused their sorry state
It is love and it can’t wait

You must….

There’s danger here, oh can’t you see
This sickness spreading endlessly
We lose ourselves so easily
In sweet caress we cease to be
So stay away, or you will catch it, too
This love that wakes the worst in you
You’ll hang around, your heart askew
You’ll shuffle on to pay your dues

It is love…

But if you follow suit
I don’t know what to do
Please, if you follow suit
Tell me what I must do

If you should follow suit
(If I should follow suit)
I don’t know what to do
(You know what you must do)
What must I do?
You must destroy the heart!

You must break my heart
Right from the start
You must, you must destroy
You must break my heart
Right from the start
You must, you must destroy the heart
Track Name: Alien Eyes
She’s got alien eyes

I don’t know what I’m here to do
There’s not a man I cannot see through
Don’t have a soul and I lost my heart
I’m bleeding life and I’m about to come apart

I don’t know where I have come from
All I know is there is something wrong
I wasn’t made to live like this
Blood and flesh are not a perfect synthesis

I’ve got, I’ve got alien eyes

I’ve been to all the dark places
I’ve seen all the boring faces
I’ve walked through a world of glass
And it shattered into tiny little shards

There must be more than I can see
Amongst the things that mean nothing to me
Or am I just slipping away?
Have I been turned and am I doomed to stay?

I’ve got, I’ve got alien eyes
Track Name: Don't Wanna
It’s been good
It’s all been fun
But I just cannot stand
When you’re so drunk
I think I wanna go home

I’ve had fun
I’ve had a good time
I think that you’re just
Out of your mind
I think I wanna go home

I’ll stay alone
Shut down my phone
Cause I don’t wanna
Talk to you
I don’t wanna talk

I’ll shut my door
I will ignore
Cause I don’t wanna
Talk to you
I don’t wanna talk
Don’t talk
