Should you be up to the heavy lifting a digital audio optical disc is available from Firestation Records Of Berlin.
www.firestation-records.de

We've used the translation ギツ instead of the more technically correct ギッツ as they represent a guitar headstock and a smile thus summing up the band to a certain extent.

Track Name: The Greatest Gift
I am tired and I am lonely in this God forsaken town
The noise of silence is so nervously loud
The ticking of a watch or a car in the street
Is enough to make this poor boy shiver in the heat

Why can’t I be near you now, why can’t I touch your face
Your eyes I know are beautiful, but lost without a trace

Sitting all alone with cigarettes as his friend
I think of all my heroes’ and pathetically pretend
I am that man, the one that gets the girl
The one that is so far away living in a separate world

Your picture is on wall like a sentimental guard
Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you hide, but I always try too hard

So rest my imagination and consider the truth
He is a romantic and you have all your youth
Summer dreams and summer looms like the greatest gift of all
Tell her she is beautiful and tell her not to full

Why can’t I be near you now, why can’t I touch your face
Your eyes I know are beautiful, but lost without a trace
Your picture is on wall like a sentimental guard
Sometimes you laugh, sometimes you hide, but I always try too hard
Track Name: JK Rant
Oh God I’ve had it up to here with you
Your clothes, your face, your voice just grates and grates and grates
And you, you hypocrite oh was I fooled
White soul boy on the pull, which girlfriend is she on the pill?
Your pack of six will soon be full, but not of gold

As I’ve heard the words behind the backs
Give me fiction dismiss the facts
You can have it all, You can have it all

The words that I speak aren’t quite what I feel
Even my mouth can’t get that contorted, may the truth be distorted
Dope head or smack head it’s all the same to me
Blow by blow she’ll make you grow that I can guarantee
But into a man or a cripple you’ll just have to wait and see

As I’ve heard the words behind the backs
Give me fiction dismiss the facts
You can have it all, You can have it all

You see I’ve heard it so many times before
And I’ve seen it so many times before

I don’t have to explain myself to you, you know
The price was right but it’s you they’ve sold
I’d rather rip my tongue out than be told
Oh daddy darling daddy, I want that one
It’s gotta be pink so I can get turned on all day long
Now I’m in the driving seat but I think I’ve said something wrong

As I’ve heard the words behind my back
Goodbye to fiction this is fact
I don’t want it all, I don’t want it all
As I’m hearing the words behind my back
Goodbye to fiction this is fact
You can have it all, You can have it all
Track Name: Bottle Of Delight
Stumbling home late in the afternoon
Puke stained suit singing this tune
I remember what I forgot the night before
The conversation that I had with the ever understanding bedroom floor

My master is the bottle and I’m a slave to it’s delight

Now is this my home or is it my brain
Trying to trick me has it won again
Familiar smells, familiar rooms gently swaying
An all to familiar voice shouting and screaming at me

My master is the bottle and I’m a slave to it’s delight

Is this true or was I dreaming
But didn’t she say something about leaving
Worshipping at the bar clears my mind
And now I seek the comfort, That special comfort of the liquid kind

My master is the bottle and I’m a slave to it’s delight
Track Name: Very Little Point
“What’s the matter with you?” She said, she said
“What’s wrong with you?”, I replied
“All of a sudden I feel very quiet”

So very quiet, so very quiet
Very little to say, so very little point
And I said, and I said

“I know what you mean” She said, she said
“I’ve been there before”
“Eloquence in silence, so very clear”

So very clear, so very clear
But how could she know, could she know?

“What’s the matter with you?” She said, she said
“What’s wrong with you?”, I replied
“All of a sudden I feel very quiet”

So very quiet, so very quiet
Very little to say, so very little point
“Of a kin” I said. “But it can’t be the same”

“What’s the matter with you?” She said. “He’s dead”
Track Name: Spend & Learn
As the actress said to the Bishop, “This will only take a minute”
“You must be joking” he replied, “Less than five would hurt my pride”
She hid the sound of laughter by saying

It’s just a matter of time, and time means money
So spend as much as you can

As the jet roared down the valley, bombing reds camouflaged as sheep
The pilot saw angels up in the clouds, “I think I’ll join them” he said out loud
Waving goodbye from his ejector seat

It’s just a matter of time, and time means money
So spend as much as you can

They analysed all the moves and soon came to a decision
It’s a strange game in the way that the only winning move is not to play
Lets hope that they can keep a promise

It’s just a matter of time, and time means money
So spend as much as you can

I’ve seen him bear that cross so many times before
A cross of his own choosing, a cross of his wrong doing
He should have learned by now

It’s just a matter of time, and time means money
So spend as much as you can
Track Name: I'm Hit
See the fist, but wait for the smile
Here it comes rushing to my face
I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, But I’m hit

I’m falling and calling on bended knee
Don’t take me down here with you
I never meant what I said but say it I did
You know it hurts to be hit with the truth

My nose in the dirt, palming the sweat
Muscle taught, biting at the bit
I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, But I’m hit

I’m falling and calling on bended knee
Don’t take me down here with you
I never meant what I said but say it I did
You know it hurts to be hit with the truth

But don’t even the score
I couldn’t take that again
But don’t even the score

So you’ve evened the score
I can’t take it again
Not again

So here’s the twist, you missed by a mile
And now I’m laughing, laughing at your face
’cause I’m it, I’m it, I’m it, but I’m hit

I’m falling and calling on bended knee
Don’t take me down here with you
I never meant what I said but say it I did
You know it hurts to be hit with the truth
Track Name: Touch Down
These last two days have been a revelation
I’m back is what I think I said
Feeling boxed in, out of time and out of tune
Was I glad to be alive or still wishing I was dead

Touch down

I’m not a buck an hour
That’s why I’m driving away
My mind is full of diamonds
You too will be great one day

My brother he was so right
Personality that is the key
So what’s the secret how could you do so well
Did he throw it all away because of me

Touch down

I’m not a buck an hour
That’s why I’m driving away
My mind is full of diamonds
You too will be great one day

I look back at what could have been achieved
Of a hero turned to waste
Who looked at me with spite in his eyes
Now I see tears of love streaming down his face

Touch down

I’m not a buck an hour
That’s why I’m driving away
My mind is full of diamonds
You too will be great one day
Track Name: Bear Up
As I stand here alone all I can see around me
Are clowns, so in love with themselves
Excuse me if that’s too precise
You’re well past taking my advice
So just keep on sniffing away girls

And here from our sponsors is the final word

You’re only one of five billion people
And I hope that makes you feel real small
Your mind is your own cage and keeper
If you find the key you’ll grow up tall

And guess who I think is the cause of this disaster, it’s Clare Rayner
For the population explosion how could you not blame her
She took the fun out of fear of being in love
The fun out of fear of being in love
And that’s why I think it feels so empty

And here from our sponsors is the final word

You’re only one of five billion people
And I hope that makes you feel real small
Your mind is your own cage and keeper
If you find the key you’ll grow up tall
Track Name: Happily Mad
I don’t like to argue, but when alone with my thoughts
I want to scream at myself (to try and think)
To wake myself up (to make a change)
To kick me where it hurts
Then pray to change our luck
Then pray to change our luck

I don’t want to speak out, but when I’m in a crowd
I want to scream at them (to make them think)
To shatter their sleep (to blow a fuse)
To wipe the smug smiles off their face
Wave goodbye to our dreams
Wave goodbye to our dreams

Don’t get mad at me, don’t get mad at me
I just want you to be happy, so don’t get mad at me
You’ve got to come of age, you’ve got to come of age
I wrote this song for you, badly written but certainly true

You’re still mad at me, you’re still mad at me
I just wanted you to be pleased, but why are you mad at me?
I think you’ve come of age, I think you’ve come of age
I wrote this song to you but I don’t think it could be true
Track Name: Mother Knows How
They walked up the hill hand in hand
Her thoughts were pure his were bad
She came back home a crying, he forgot to tell her he was only lying
How soon will her mother know

Now Jill has a plan for revenge
To finally get even with Jack
So she invited him up for a picnic and laced the well with arsenic
And told him to drink deep

But he’d been warned before and so he knew the score

Your mother knows how, your mother knows
Ask my dad he should know that your mother knows how

His face was smug when she told him to go away
Another win lad well done that’s what his father would say
The cacophony of the explosion made her feel quite ill
That she really meant to tell him she had mined the hill
Just like her mother had told her

Your mother knows how, your mother knows
Ask my dad he should know that your mother knows how

Erase him from your heart she said
Erase him from your heart she said
I’ve erased him for my heart as only mother knows how
Track Name: Factory
With my mouth in my heart
I wake up in a sweat
Remembering what might have been
In my utopian dream

Don’t throw stones in greenhouses
You’ll only end up hurting yourself
The vision is clear but yours is misting
Everything I say you just keep a twisting

Remembering what might have been
In my utopian dream

I tried to be good
But it came out as God
What felt like a river soon became a flood
So if what I say comes out in a muddle
It’s because I want you, plain and simple

Remembering what might have been
In my utopian dream
