Track Name: Mundo Caníbal
Mundo Caníbal (lyrics by J.Kudla & A. Duff)

Fire burning in the street,
dancing corpses in the heat,
Fred Astaire and Charlie Chaplin
feeding a transmuting gremlin

Batman took a holiday
Spiderman fell from the sky
chaos rules the world and we go ayayayay....

Mundo caníbal - carnívoro y canalla
Mundo Caníbal - depredadores y fantasmas
Mundo Caníbal - sangre fácil y barata
Mundo Caníbal - mundo animal

Tgauras e tgauns en tutus
seglian e saulten ballet
turneglian entuorn en rudi
betschan e letgan tgiluts

Holden Caulfield in the Rye,
Sauron and his burning eye,
A drunken dwarf without a nose
a sack of sorrows, a lot of woes

Mackie with a hidden knife,
kisses his dead beggar wife,
humanity is lost and we go ayayayaya...

Mundo caníbal - carnívoro y canalla
Mundo Caníbal - depredadores y fantasmas
Mundo Caníbal - sangre fácil y barata
Mundo Caníbal - mundo animal

Nua ch’ei fa bu l’amur
meina il demoni il botsch
spatrogna e rumpa il cavez
dall’ossa crescha ina flur
Track Name: The Gypsy Song
The Gypsy Song (lyrics by N. Pérez)

There are some days that look so bright
There are some lives that seem so dull
How could you walk against the wind?
How could you stop the earth go round?

You’ll never know which road to take
One never knows which way goes down
Will you get back once to the shore?
Are you ready for the flight?

There are some things you cannot change
There are some ways you cannot play
There are some thoughts you cannot tell
But you can howl loud everyday

Tonight you will not sleep at all
Someone inside your head will roar
How far can you run in the dark
until you crash into a wall?
Track Name: We'll Save The World
We’ll save the world (lyrics by J.Kudla & A. Duff)

Yesterday evening when I had some beers
Old Churchill came to me and said -listen to me son!
An evil force wants to destroy the earth
the only one who can save us is you and your silly band
-now-

Don't you know we'll save the world
and if not today then maybe tomorrow

I told the old man, now sit down and relax
we're natural born heroes, we know what to do
today we're kind of busy but tomorrow maybe
if it is not raining
we'll go out and save the world -now-

Don't you know we'll save the world
and if not today then maybe tomorrow

We save the world and the wales and the penguins and the dolphins that are left
we slice and can them in a bin so they survive eternity

We save the cows and the chicken and the sheep that keep us warm
we store their genes in some bytes so we can clone them as we need

We save the stork and the kiwi and the prettiest butterflies
We dry them out on a stick and let them fly to infinity
Track Name: El Mariachi
El Mariachi

You came walking a long way
you were covered all in dust
your eyes were staring at me
while playing your guitar
playing softly
playing swiftly

I came walking a long way
just for another job
I saw her in the crowd
and I looked her in the eyes
playing softly
playing swiftly

One little moment, vacations from eternity
smile before you shoot me down
tear me to pieces, break my heart and run away
just smile before you shoot me down

Then you walked right at me
and kissed me with a smile
saying: sorry I can't stay
and then you took your gun
killing softly
killing swiftly

I couldn't help but kiss her
even knowing I would leave
I gave her a last smile
and then I saw her gun
killing softly
killing swiftly

One little moment, vacations from eternity
smile before you shoot me down
tear me to pieces, break my heart and run away
just smile before you shoot me down
Track Name: Santa Alegría
Santa Alegría (lyrics by N.Pérez & J.Kudla)
Shining, new, bigger and faster
making noise, smoke and smell
Saints, kings, owners, rules and orders
burning millions everyday
Not just hundred but one thousand
that is happiness, everyone says
More and more, they want everything
nothing is enough for them

Santa, santa alegría
santa lujuria, hipocresía
santa, santa miseria
santa desilusión
-
Free souls running through the jungle
peasants kicked out from the land
machines eating human beings
urban people underground
selfmade robots and space monsters
all living creatures on the earth
may wake up one day
with one idea in their head
to change the world
Track Name: Boogich Bulgar

Track Name: A Russian Circus Story
A Russian Circus Story (lyrics by D. Rodríguez)
Welcome ladies and gentlemen!
Welcome to the russian circus
a place where your dreams never will come true!

Natasha from Saint Petersburg
she was a trapezist
Vladimir from Chernobil
he was a penguin-boy...
Vladi the bloody penguin-boy!

She is flying in the lights
and he is dying for her lips
always hidden, always crying
in the shadows of his van

Trapped in this body
Natasha never looks at me
but this night I got a plan
there's nothing that could fail

Trapped in his body
Natasha never looks at him
but this night he's got a plan
there's nothing that could fail

Children are screaming!
What's this flying monster, mom?
Natasha tries to catch him
but his arms are too short!

The penguin-boy, ...
Vladi the bloody penguin-boy!
Track Name: Hey Moe
Hey Moe (lyrics by J.Kudla)
Hey Moe, I heard you shot your wife down
I heard you did it all wrong
I heard you're running wild

Hey Moe, what’re you gonna do now?
Where you gonna go now?
Don’t you know the devil is after you?

Hey Moe, Satan is looking for you
so fill up all our glasses
before you’re going down, down, down to hell
