Track Name: My Deviance
1. My Deviance

Oh the glow of the morning
we never left for school
We ditched our books and we
snuk in to you room
From here on
we´ll play by our own rules
We´ll pet each other
in our private petting zoo

Now,
Tell me ´bout your childhood babe,
show me the games you played
As love keeps shooting it´s heroin
You know it will burst your veins
It will burst my veins

You know.. you´ll always be
my little deviance
I´ll be the parasite crawling on your skin
I´ll taste it - and hope it won´t break
And there´s still some time for my
hardened hand
to hold your dream of tomorrow,
then break it

Now,
Tell me ´bout your childhood babe..

(Lempinen/Lempinen)
Track Name: The Prisoner
2. The Prisoner

Your shiny stones, a red flower
behind your ear, crickets in your eyes
We stood on trial - lustful, unspoken
Oh, we were set free - as though
there was no crime

´like your car crash without headlights
you lived to see these autumn nights (you belong to)
Escape´s an art - of that I´m sure
another love that is the cure (you belong to)

A brittle love, a dead flower
it didn´t know that it would die
And the stones here in my pocket
are getting smoother, defaced by time

´like your car crash without headlights
you lived to see these autumn nights (you belong to)
Search the sand for stones - another shore
another love that is the cure (you belong to)

The prisoner,
you belong to love

(Gonzalez/Lempinen)
Track Name: Dynamo
3. Dynamo

Swingin´.. oh how you swing it
on the floor
It´s you little girl smile
that makes me wanna take you home
There´s no use in telling you,
you do as you please
Well I got my - and you got
your needs

You better run run run, better go-go-go
Shake those hips, oh shake those bones
You better move, oh move!
Better run run run, I said a-go-go-go
Shake those hips, oh shake those bones
You better move -
´cause I can see you both

(Gonzalez/Lempinen)
Track Name: Elektra (You Were Such Fun)
6. Elektra

Here we go..
Well I´m still feeling empty
Don´t hold yourself like I do,
don´t hold yourself at all

Here I go..
I try so hard to make you love me
I´m counting all my time,
you´re just counting on..

Elektra here we go
I´m still catchin´ the waves
from the end of the sea
Now you throw them out
to me..
And then you´re gone,
you were such fun..

(Gonzalez/Lempinen&Gonzalez)
Track Name: Superferries
7. Superferries

I see my baby sleep
She´s all tangled up in my sheets
She´d been gone for a while
I saw her needles - I saw her eyes

Oh lord! Her skins turning cold
Oh lord! It´s taking a hold
"Don´t know about you, my love,
but I´ll never grow old"

I see the superferries leaving
Are we still here or am I just dreaming
She´d been gone for a while...

(Gonzalez/Lempinen)
Track Name: A Mess
8. The Mess

It´s now or never, the old man told me
"Never" is a great word
To leave things be..

Now what are you trying to hide
You´re fucked up in your mind
´Cause you look so beatiful

It´s now or never..

(Karjalainen/Lempinen)
