about

A little ABC of left-overs from rehearsals, radio show, live; all recorded 1996-1998. Some poor quality. Only one song we ever played was never recorded (Unbeschreiblich Weiblich, Nina Hagen Cover). This completes the Demo and Chocolate in documenting Over The Moon 1996-1998 line-up.
If you download it and want to play all songs do NOT normalize volume for best (well, least bad) results ;-)

Track Name: Black Release
Someday it will be crashing, someday it will be gone. I see myself reflected, wonder where I belong. The less we talk, the less we know. Someday it will be breaking, someday it will be smoke. I see myself connected and wonder if I choke. The less we talk, the less we know. Black release, mark my words. (Babs/Johan)
Track Name: Blind
lost....
Track Name: Buddy Holly
When I was going under, when I was going down, I knew I wouldn't grow older, and now my butt's in the ground. And with my head up in the clouds, I never knew, I never cared. But I still have my doubts, 'cause I am here and I am scared. My body's going down, my spirit's going high. Peggy Sue hold my hand, 'cause I'm afraid to fly. Kill me, kill me, kill me I'm Buddy Holly. You gotta sing me a song, 'cause I'm losing my glasses. I won't be here very long, 'cause time, you know, it passes. Kill me, kill me, kill me I'm Buddy Holly... Hello John. (Johan/Babs/Anne/Henk)
Track Name: Disappearing B
You thought you could break the mall, but your head is in your hands. Nothing but an empty skull that is pointing out the end. You were somebody, you were somebody. Now you're standing all alone. How does it feel without a home? And you ask me to hold tight but you know I fear the night. You were somebody, you were somebody... when I was out there. Now you're laying on your knees, praying to an unknown friend, and you only beg and please but you know you just pretend. You were somebody, you were somebody... when I was out there. (Babs)
Track Name: Down
I said it in so many ways. It turns into marble, but that's okay. It turns into marble, everyday. It turns into marble, everything. I know it for sure, but that's okay. I know it for sure, everyday. I know it for sure everything. I said it in so many ways. I'm always down. It turns into anger, but that's okay. It turns into anger, everyday. It turns into anger, everything. I see your denial, but that's okay. I see your denial, everyday. I see your denial, everything. I'm always down. (Babs)
Track Name: Gelted Spell
I'm bewitched in a gelted spell, and I don't know how to leave this hell. What on earth will help me through. I realise that I want you. Smooth the edges with another beeer, doesn't work, wish you were here. Don't want to feel but what to do. I realise that I want you. Who the fuck you think you are rejecting my love?! Trying to hide these rotten words, pretending that I wasn't hurt. Aming to avoid the truth. I realise that I want you. Who the fuck you think you are rejecting my love?! Fearless mind, in the night. (Babs)
Track Name: Keep It Up
It's time to see the sun go down again, another sleepless night with lots of talks in vain. It's time to see the sun go down again, wonder will I rise before drown in pain. The window on the world is slipping through my fingers. Fatigue will stop, will stop all creativity. Making stupid mistakes again and again, here in this small room at a quarter past one. Tired I'm so tired I'm so fucking tired. Gotta keep it up, don't let you down. All the times that I saw you cry, I couldn't find the answers. Will someone please help me out, I still can't find the answers. All the times that I saw you cry... gotta keep it up, gotta keep it up. Will someone please help me out, I gotta keep it up gotta keep it up. (Henk)
Track Name: Naked
I need to see you naked, please let me have it all. I need to see you naked, tie me up against the wall. I need to see you naked, help me before I fall. I need to see you naked, lying on my back. I need to see you naked, enclose you with my legs. I need to see you naked, anxious to know what's next. I can't wait for you, your disfigure is killing me. I will never stay, your disfigure is killing me. Then... remains the silence. I can't wait for you, your disfigure is killing me. I will never stay, your disfigure is killing me. I can't wait for you, your disfigure is killing me. I will never stay, your disfigure is killing me. Then... remains the silence. (Babs/Johan)
Track Name: Painted Face
You see this picture, I was only seven years old. Now they call my name in the juvenile court. You listen to my mother, when she tells she lost control when he set the house on fire, and burned her vulnerable soul. And now I'm locked in a cage. I can only go to the gate, and turn my back on it. And carry on to play my game. They came to bring me my little yellow bird. I'm glad when I'm alone, and no one comes to my room. I think I hate my father, to live such a miserable way. He's just a bad example, he hurts me so don't make me stay. And now I'm locked in a cage. I can only go to the gate, and turn my back on it. And carry on to play my game. I paint my face in different ways. I have a mask for every day. I paint it blue when I'm depressed, I paint it red when I'm devilish. I'll make you think you can't get hold of me; a painted face, that's what you'll see. (Anne)
Track Name: Pink
Don't treat me like a Barbie, don't you treat me like that. Don't dare to call me baby, don't cuddle me as your pet. Pigs are everywhere, everywhere I look. Pigs are everywhere, everywhere I look. Don't force me in this narrow seat, don't make me things I'm not. Don't want to dance on tied feet, don't want to live this rut. Pigs are everywhere, everywhere I look. Pigs are everywhere, everywhere I look. And what about pink? What about pink? (Babs)
Track Name: Silent Witness
Wrapped up in dry papers, your wings injected with fear. Tied to your bones your taken to the rear. Bounded by iron locks, they cut of your hair. Strapped down to the stones, too cold to care. Cry the clouds out of heaven. They will meet the wall, scars that no one knows. Vultures are eager when you let them lose. Wrapped up in dry papers, paralysed for years. Gashes are ruling, 'till green anger appears. Cry the clouds out of heaven. Splintered mirrors don't reflect, silent witness. Splintered mirrors don't reflect, silent witness. (Babs)
Track Name: Spring
September in the spring, and I wasn't aware. That I could loose my wings, no, I wasn't aware. If you really want to... September in the snow, and I wasn't aware. It would continue to grow, no, I wasn't aware. If you really want to... (Babs)
Track Name: Symbiotic Harmony
You say you're hurt because of me, and my request for liberty. So now you're leaving, you're sick of me, 'cause I'm not what you expected to be. It's fine, it's fine, it's fine with me. You say you hope my heart will bleed, and you are there to guarantee. You claim that I'm to blind to see that my behaviour is naive. It's fine, it's fine, it's fine with me. I only want to be free, no symbiotic harmony. Symbiotic harmony... You say you're sure I won't succeed, and I'll come back to beg and plead 'cause I can't stand on my own feet, and you know that it is you that I need. Symbiotic harmony... It's fine, it's fine, it's fine with me. I only want to be free, no symbiotic harmony. (Babs)
Track Name: This Heart Is Aching
I've been watching your steps recently. You made me discover something very mean. You were fucking everywhere, so it's time to throw out your fucking underwear. I can be violent when you hurt my soul. I cannot trust you, so now you've lost me. If you don't keep your words I'd better go. All those promises, they never show. You were fucking everywhere, so it's time to throw out your fucking underwear. I can be violent when you hurt my soul. I cannot trust you, so now you've lost me. This heart is aching, I couldn't care less. You were my sunshine, now I kill you with thunder. And I'm not afraid, I'll easily forget you. And I'm not ashamed of the way I left you. This heart is aching, I couldn't care less. You were my sunshine, now I kill you with thunder. (Anne)
Track Name: Unspoken
Vague promises again, swaying in the silence of friends. The unspoken words in your eyes, the wishes of longing for times... (but) you won't come, and I won't be. Insecurities again, pursuing to ruin the end. The unwritten words in your eyes, the kings of the rules in your minds... (but) you won't come, and I won't be. It's all in there, all in there. It's all in them, all in them eyes. (Babs)

Track Name: (about) You
I understand everything, and yes I know about time. I can accept the tumbling of all this pain in my mind. But I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad. I can't refuse the truth of you, and won't ignore your lies. Can see the beauty I never knew, behind the curtains it's cold. So I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad. No, I won't bend if you want me to bow. No, I won't bend to kiss the ground. I understand everything, and yes I know about time. I can accept the tumbling of all this pain in my mind. But I'm mad, I'm mad, I'm mad. No, I won't bend if you want me to bow. No, I won't bend to kiss the ground. (Babs)
