1. Out Of Hand

Don't wanna have to take your shit anymore
I finally concluded that life is way to short
The ticking of the hourglass, the tiny grains of sand
it beckons me like gravity, like signposts on the land
and you got what you wanted without force of reprimand
the seconds are all running out, this burdens out of hand


1. Poza kontrolą (tłum. Nikt)

Nie mam ochoty dłużej znosić twojego gówna
W końcu doszedłem do wniosku, że życie jest zdecydowanie za krótkie
To tykanie klepsydry, drobne ziarenka piasku
Przyzywają mnie jak siła ciążenia, jak drogowskaz na lądzie
A ty masz to, czego chciałeś, bez odczuwania siły nagany
Ostatnie sekundy już się kończą, to brzemię jest poza kontrolą
2. Follow The Leader

A loose cannon on your shoulder
You've got a strawberry on your hips
And you've got some phantasmical images
And you've got, you've got your rich hips
Because, you're all looking for adventure
And you've got earphones on your bicycles
There's people watching over
And you got a bong in your pocket

Follow the leader

Put some fish in the tank
Give batman back his cape
Don't ask for a sucker
You stupid mother fucker

I've got a lot of problems
'Cause I sound like Beck
What I do over in Germany
Is order alot of Speck*
You know what I'm talking about
When you go home for dinner
You gotta keep on your shoulder

Follow the leader

We're not the Foo Fighters
On Saturday, we like our grinders**
If you go home for pizza
You kiss mother Theresa

She is in her coffin
Lady Diana's coffin

* bekon po niemiecku
** rodzaj kanapki


3. Mediocrity

I've spent my life observing
and then pondering this place
and never has confusion ever ceased
I've also heard a lot of exaltation for our kind
and sanctimonious reverence for peace
The stories from our childhood
condition us to think
that beauty is a basic human trait
but how are they reconciled with daily realities
like poverty and dominance and rape

But you have to be
stone cold dead not to see
overwhelming incongruity
as we search for suggestions to remedy...

...Mediocrity

If you just sit back and record what you see
the tragic and exquisite are the same to some degree
but most events depict a common theme:
there's far more disorder than there is harmony

I said you've got to be
stone cold dead not to see
overwhelming incongruity
It is pointless to search for teleology

Mediocrity
(always mediocrity)


3. Miernota (tłum. Ofmika)

spędziłem życie obserwując
a później zastanawiając się nad tym miejscem
a moje zmieszanie nigdy nie ustało
słyszałem także mnóstwo zachwytów nad naszym gatunkiem
i świętoszkowate poważanie dla pokoju
historie z naszego dziecinstwa
przyuczają nas do myślenia
że piękno jest podstawową cechą ludzką
ale w jaki sposób godzi się to z codzienną rzeczywistością
jak ubóstwo, dominacja i gwałt?

lecz ty musisz być
zimny i martwy jak głaz, by nie dostrzegać
wszechogarniającej niedorzeczności
kiedy szukamy sposobu na zwalczenie...

...miernoty

jeśli tylko usiądziesz i zapiszesz co widzisz
rzeczy tragiczne i świetne będą tym samym do pewnego stopnia
lecz większość wydarzeń to jeden temat
jest znacznie wiecej nieładu, niż harmonii

ale ty naprawdę musisz być
zimny i martwy jak głaz, by nie dostrzegać
wszechogarniającej niedorzeczności
bezcelowe jest szukanie teleologii

miernota
(wieczna miernota)
4. Running Fast     [info]

How would you like to be my friend?
I thought this trip would never end
I've been away for a long long time
I can't wait to see my home again

'cause I'm running' fast from the world out there
you know I'm running' fast from the world out there

Ever since I ran away long ago
I never had much money to show
for what I have contributed to humanity
I feel satisfied with them believing me alone

You know I'm running' fast from the world out there
Yeah I'm running' fast from the world out there

There's things to be said for good but mostly bad
Just keeping my distance from the freaks makes me glad
And I'm trying my best to instill what was here before
but I better get a move on

'cause I'm running' fast from the world out there
You know I'm running' fast from the world out there
Yeah I'm running' fast from the world out there
You know I'm running' fast from the world out there


5. Waiting For The Fire     [info]

two young lads on distant shores
tending to the riggers of their daily choice
their parents told them what's going on
and they're waiting for the fire

two young lads on distant shores
tending to the riggers of their social noise
the news will tell them what's going on
and they're waiting for the fire

waiting for the fire
the heat is rising and their tongues are getting drier
The culmination of an ancient tire
they are waiting for the fire


6. Who We Are

It's cold again, it looks like rain
A procession of humanity, strikingly simian
Saunters by, I can't explain
Why it's troubling to see them so

Better than who we are with mania and yearning for and learning from
Better than holiness and candy aisles of loneliness and sweet revenge

A cigarette, a memory
All connections to the permanent are burning
The pedestal gets in the way
And cannot withstand our honest scrutiny

Better than who we are with mania or standing for or dead against
Better than holiness and candy aisles of loneliness and sweet revenge

Do you feel the chill of December
In the rioting of Spring?
And are we made of something better than clay?
A leap, a fight, a secret rite,
The lonely quest for meaning and the universe is dreaming
6. Kim jesteśmy (tłum. Wanderer)

Jest znów zimno - pewnie będzie padać.
Nieodparcie małpi pochód ludzkości przechadza się obok i mija mnie.
I nie umiem wyjaśnić, czemu tak ten widok mnie niepokoi.

Lepsze niż to kim jesteśmy, w obsesji, w tęsknocie za czymś, w nauce od kogoś
Lepsze niż świętość, i dział z cukierkami i samotnością, i słodka zemsta

Papieros, wspomnienie
Wszystkie drogi do niezmienności - płoną.
Piedestał wychodzi nam naprzeciw, lecz nie wytrzymuje naszej rzeczowej krytyki.

Lepsze niż to kim jesteśmy, w obsesji, czy obstając przy czymś, czy przeciw czemuś.
Lepsze niż świętość, i dział z cukierkami i samotnością, i słodka zemsta.

Czy czujesz ten grudniowy chłód
podczas zamieszek na wiosnę?
Czy ulepiono nas z czegoś więcej niż glina?
Skok, walka, tajemny obrzęd.
Samotna wyprawa w poszukiwaniu sensu, a wszechświat spowił sen.



7. We're A Happy Family

We're a happy family we're a happy family
we're a happy family me mom and daddy
We're a happy family we're a happy family
we're a happy family me mom and daddy
Siting here in Queens eating refried beans
we're in all the magazines, Gulpin' down thorazines
we ain't got no friends, our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send daddy likes men

daddy's telling lies baby's eating flies
Mommy's on pills baby's got the chills
I'm friends with the President, I'm friends with the Pope
we're all making a fortune selling Daddy's dope
Siting here in Queens eating refried beans
we're in all the magazines, Gulpin' down thorazines
we ain't got no friends, our troubles never end
No Christmas cards to send daddy likes men

We're a happy family, we're a happy family
we're a happy family me mom and daddy



8. Fuck Christmas

Don't despair just because it's Christmas
People there are so gay at Christmas
See the children on the street
Hope they get something good to eat
But for me it's not so great
Fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas
Fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas, fuck Christmas



9. I Saw The Light

I wandered so aimless, my life filled with sin
I wouldn't let my dear saviour in
Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I saw the light, I saw the light
No more darkness, no more night
Now I'm so happy, no sorrow in sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

Just like a blind man I wandered along
Worries and fears I claimed for my own
Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight
Praise the Lord I saw the light

I was a fool to wander and astray
Straight is the path and narrow the way
Now I have traded the wrong for the right
Praise the Lord I saw the light




9. Ujrzalem swiatlo (tłum. Ofmika)

wędrowałem bez celu, moje życie było przepełnione grzechem
nie wpuszczałem mego drogiego Zbawiciela do środka
wtedy Jezus nadszedł jak obcy w nocy
chwalcie Pana, ujrzałem światło!

ujrzałem światło, ujrzałem światło
nie ma już ciemności, nie ma nocy!
teraz jestem taki szczęśliwy, nie widzę już smutku
chwalcie Pana, ujrzałem światło!

wędrowałem jak ślepiec przed siebie
sam prosiłem się o zmartwienia i strach
a wtedy Bóg przywrocił mi wzrok
chwalcie Pana, ujrzałem światło!

byłem głupi, wędrując i błądząc
przecież ścieżka jest prosta, a droga jest wąska!
teraz zamieniłem zło na dobro
chwalcie Pana, ujrzałem światło!



10. Go Your Own Way

Lovin you isn't the right thing to do
How can I ever change things that I feel?
If I could, baby I'd give you my world
But how can I when you won't take it from me

You can go your own way
You can call it on the lonely days
You can go your own way

Tell me why everything turns around
Backin up, shaking it's all you wanna do
If I could, baby I'd give you my socks
Open up, everything's waiting for you



11. Every Day

Well I'm coming home to gypsy, I never thought it'd be so cool
Her big sweet eyes and body are enough to make me drool
And when she wraps her arms around me, I just want to melt inside
And then she whispers in my ear, boy, I tell ya what she really likes
But don't be deceived by my wife
Now I'm stuck here all the time
It's a lonely life
Yeah, and every day, every day, every day, it's just the same
Every day, every way, and every day, it's the same ol' game
Every day, and every day, and every day, it's just the same
Every day, every day, every day, it's the same ol' game
Well next week there's an auction for everybody in the town
And gypsy's got the best hand, smoothest fingers all around
I'll put her up for auction, and then be free once more
I'll have her bags awaiting on the steps next to the door
But don't be deceived by my wife
Yeah, I'm stuck here all the time
It's a lonely life
Yeah, and every day, every day, and every day, it's just the same
Every day, every way, and every day, it's the same ol' game
Every day, every day, every day, it's just the same
Every day, every day, every day, it's the same ol' thing
Every day, every day, every day, it's just the same
Every day, every way, every day, it's the same ol' game
And every day, and every day, and every day, and every day
Every day, and every day, and every day, and every day



12. Do They Know It's Christmas? (Feed The World)

Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?
Feed the world
Do they know it's Christmas time at all?



13. God Rest You Jerry Mentlemen

God rest ye jerry mentlemen, there's nothing you dismay
Remember Christ our savior was born on Christmas day
Who'll save us all from Satan's hand when we have gone astray
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Good tidings of comfort and joy
Now when he was a little lad he walked around this place
He had two stilts for feet and he had whiskers on his face
But then he died upon the cross and left but just a trace
Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy
Good tidings of comfort and joy



14. Joy To The World

Ladies and gentlemen, and the community of angels
I'd like to share a little something we've done

Joy to the world, the Lord is come
Let Earth receive her king
Let every heart prepare Him room
And Heaven and nature sing, and Heaven and nature sing
And Heaven... And Heaven, nature sing
He rules the world with tooth and nail
And makes us follow him
He can't tell us why, they just fall in line
And he shall rule the world, and he shall rule the world
And he shall, and he shall rule the world
He was the one, I said it before
And now I think I'm done
I can't remember anymore of this crazy song
But hey it's Christmas time, but Hell it's Christmas time
And hey, hey, and ho, ho, it's Christmas time



15. The Forst Noel (Leon)

The first Noel the angels did say
Was a lonely, poor shepherd, asleep as he lay
He was born in a box, in a barn on some sand
And he walked out of there with some hay in his hand
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the king of Israel
Noel, noel, noel, noel
Born is the king of Israel



16. Let's Do It

When the little bluebird who has never said a word, starts to sing (Spring)
When the little blue bell at the bottom of a dell starts to ring (ding-dong, ding-dong)
When the little blue clerk in the middle of his work, starts a tune to the moon up above
It is nature that is all, simply telling us to fall in love
And that's why birds do it, bees do it, even educated fleas do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
Cold Cape Cod clams against their wish, do it, even lazy jellyfish do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
I've heard that lizards and frogs do it, lyin' on a rock
They say that roosters do it, with a doodle and cock
Some Argentines without means do it, I hear even Boston beans do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
When the little bluebird who has never said a word
When the little blue bell at the bottom of a dell
When the little blue clerk in the middle of his work
The most refined ladybugs do it, when a gentlemen calls
Moths in your rugs they do it, what's the use of mothballs?
The chimpanzees in the zoos do it; some courageous kangaroos do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love
I'm sure sometimes on the sly you do it
Maybe even you and I might do it
Let's do it, let's fall in love


17. Silent Night

Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent night, holy night
Shepherds quake at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly hosts sing "Alleluia"
Christ the Savior is born
Christ the Savior is born
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace
Silent night, holy night
All is calm, all is bright
'Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace


17. Give Punk a Chance
