Track Name: Yolk
YOLK

Keep on breathing
Preconceiving

It’s not your problem I suppose
It’s not your fault
Natural labour as it grows
Fruitfull assault

Leave out the sentiments
Enter the pain
Leave out the cleanliness
Show me the stains
A miracle
My miracle
More miracle than I’ve conceived

Keep on breathing
Heavy breathing

It’s not your problem I suppose
It’s not your fault
Natural labour as it grows
Fruitful assault (2x)

Music & words: F.E. Scholtens (2003)
Track Name: Friends?
FRIENDS? (MY SELFISH FRIEND)

Fell off my horse again, I climb back up
And ride till you say when
It’ s time for a full stop! Obedience to you, my so called friend

I’m old enough to be a man
And man enough to be a little boy
But hangin’ on to you is leaving my emotions in a void

My ego’s tumblin’ up and down as I roll
Along with you

Ooh, ooh, ooh, and here I go, ooh
Ooh, ooh, ooh, and here I go….again

Excuse my imprudence
It’s not my aim, to charge you with neglect
I just find these circumstances
Altogether somewhat incorrect

Music & words: F.E. Scholtens 2000
Track Name: What's Left To Begin With? (Dance With Me)
WHAT’S LEFT TO BEGIN WITH? (DANCE WITH ME)

Palmreader in my head
Why won’t you answer me
Maybe the line is slow
What do I have to begin with

What if I never know
What’s behind these eyes, if I dare to
Keep the resistance low, will you
Tell me what’s left to begin with

Cast away insecurity
Open up to your destiny
I’ve got the perfect remedy
All becomes trivial if you dance with me
Dance with me

Words & music: F.E. Scholtens 2000
Track Name: Have A Nice Day
HAVE A NICE DAY

Have a nice day Bm Am E
Let your ideals reach the sun G#min B
Make your peace with everyone A E

Have a nice day Bm Am E
Leave your footprints in the sand G#min B
Like you never got away A E

If you’ d ask me to F#
Come along for a ride A B
I’d be happy to Bmin
Catch the waves A
When you find yourself subside G#7 C#7

So have a nice day Bm Am E
Let the fluid cleanse your soul G#min B
While your water slips away A E

Have a nice day Bm Am E

Words & music: F.E. Scholtens
Track Name: 30 Seconds Flat
30 SECONDS FLAT

Raise your eyebrow
Point your finger
Tie your shoes
And make it linger
Take a pee
Then slam the door
And other stuff like that

Raise your voice
Out loud in anger
Dump the girl
And swiftly hang ‘er
Out to dry
Then make her sigh
In 30 seconds flat

Words & music: F.E. Scholtens
