Who do you want to be? Do you want to listen to the girls who say you are worthless? Who do you want to be? What's your favourite thing to do when you're all alone? And who says it isn't cool Reading all the books at school Knowing the names of all the planets and the stars? And who says it isn't cool To know all about world war two And read about dinosaurs all night long? Do you still not see? There's no need to fear a heartless crowd with just copies of ideas Do you still not see? There's no need to hide, they will try to take you anyway And who says it isn't cool Dancing every afternoon Go fishing with your dad, or play piano or harmonica? And who says it isn't cool To figure skate in winter time Read too much of ancient crime, and love statistics? And this is a love song for the geek For the boy who knew he was ugly and no good And oh, for the kids who knew too much And still too little, and yet too little After all... And this is a love song for the geek For the girl who was narrow minded and annoying For the kids who knew too much And still too little, and yet too little After all...

Extra Life 01:17
There's a killer on the loose And we all wanna hide He is dangerous as hell He might come after us There's a drunk man driving fast He is angry and lonely He's tired of his life And goes the same way as me But I don't care I've got an extra life Tonight I got an extra life No matter what goes wrong now I'm gonna be all right There's a woman going mad Making poisonous drinks And she's working late at night In my favourite bar There's a girl running fast With her mother’s machine gun Now she's hiding in the woods Near my favourite park

Well, I'm a clown now Oh, I'm a fool! I followed the rules But took the wrong path Was it a choice? I sit and wait for what? Sit and wait for what? I sit and wait for what? Sit and wait for what? If I knew where to look... I really want to leave Please tell me I can go! I've relived all my past The future doesn't show And I do care! But no-one tells me how, and why, and where to go I'm staring at the sun The clouds are far away Why do I feel the rain I close the door behind But I do care But no-one tells me how! I seem OK now? I never know when to smile What to say Laugh with the others Then turn away

Oh Oh 03:19
The story goes like stories go Like worms crawl in the rain And I'm scared of you I'm scared of me And you could be insane Still I look you in the eyes We meet so often on the bridge When I turn my head You turn your head What does it mean? It's so Oh-oh! I'm running more these days Than I have ever run before I'm scared of eating Scared of leaving footprints on the floor And I know that I'm imagining The interest I see Still it keeps me running laps So I can retrace you and me! Come and take my hand! I don't care where you are coming from I don't care where you're off to Come and dive through the rain Come and take my hand! I don't care why you are out so late You're running on a Friday night That's all I can know Come and take my hand! Take me far away 'cause I can't stay Behind this time You're running by... I try...

I know you work all night, and the whole day too But listen to me please, there's something I wanna do I wanna take you out for a snack or a meal Will you agree, do we have a deal? I wanna hug you forever! Whisper sweet things in your ear I could tell you my secrets I'll tell you all you wanna hear! I know you work all day and the whole night too But won't you come with me, there's lots of things we could do We could watch a movie, or go for a walk We could hang out all night and talk! Be my girl, my one love! Be my girl, it would be all right! If you say yes you won't regret I'll hold you all through the night

Touch me! Then wake me up slowly and psychologically save me from today Touch me! Then stroke my hand gently Make sure I get home safely But never stay... And then what? I say, I said it now And then nothing! you reply Untie me, untangle me gently Then close the door forever Throw the key Hold me! Then lift me and move me Take care of me forever Throw the key Forget the past, build a castle made of straw Then wait a while, let it fall down Forget the straw, build a castle made of wood Then wait a while, let it fall down Forget your home, build a castle made of stone Then wait a while, let it fall down Forget your past, go get out, you win at last Then wait a while, let it fall In a while, I'll wait, I'll say it then Now there's something, you'll reply

Some months had passed I moved away to another place Another pace And I tried to make it go away But then we were broken I didn't eat I wish I could get the time to stop To turn it back And I disappeared and never saw The ghost I became But the island, the grass, and the water The ferry, the cat, and the cows And R and K and Y and K and T kept me safe from the Dark thoughts and the endless cold silence The holes and the years All the years that vanished fast And left a vast Desert of nothing I didn't vanish, though I tried so hard And I'm still around, 'cause I try so hard But a big part died I think I cried It out in the soil Where some flowers grow The silent kind And the endless nights The stars that shine And I start to see another me Not broken and shallow There are days where nights used to be There are mornings fair and aimless There's a hand that's searching for me Will you lift me out of darkness? There are moons where wounds used to be There are craters, plumes, and fountains There are worlds just waiting for me There are rivers, paths, and mountains There are roads I've never yet seen There are deserts, forests, waters There's a hand that's searching for me Will you lift me out of darkness?

about

We Were Never Being Boring Collective Italy

We want music to never turn into something boring for us. It would mean that we have become boring. Because music does not die with mp3′s or copyright: boredom is what brings it down, when it becomes a habit. All we need is a small do-it-yourself collective, as tiny as a simple smile. ... more
