Studio Version on DOG DAYS


Failed by the foolproof
Trying to face the truth
Can’t cope or relate
Consumed by anger, hurt and hate
Shrouded in shame
In the wind I hear your name
Crouching coward
Crippled Christ
Meet me in paradise
Help me make it right

Dream with the dreamers
Bleed with the bleeders
Dry as stone
Hard as bone
Shattered and split
2x4 buy six
Get one free
To be who i am
Not who you want me to be
Can’t you see

I’m in and out of time
In and out of mind
The break must be made
The one who lost his way
Pity the password
Pain is the key
Change the lock love
Just don’t forget me
If you can
If you can
Be the woman and
I’ll be the man

Is it in your skirt
Is it in your shirt
Is in what you do for work
Is it in the eyes
Is it in the thighs
Or is in what between there lies

Is it in the hands
Is it in the feet
Is it in the space between your teeth
Is it in the arms
Is it in the stance
Is it the size of what’s in your pants

Is it in knowing nature
Is it in knowing cars
Spending hard-earned money at the bar
Is it being strong
Is it being tough
Is it never wanting to grow up

Is it in the glance
Is it in the stare
Is in the way you wear your hair
Is in fashion
Is it in style
Give you an inch and you take a mile

Is this about money
Is this about love
Is this the bottom line or above
Is this about guilt
Is this about sex
Don’t wanna be like all of the rest
So tell me if you can
If you can
Be a woman and
I’ll be a man
