Track Name: How Do You Function
How you function - Norma

What would you do if we were the damned?
The trampled on and the miserable?

Wishing I wasn’t born the day someone
Decided there and then to make us pay

Feeling stronger when you’re with your lot
Scary Weasel and his little friends

Cartoon characters coming alive
See them end up with a brilliant nosedive yeah

What would you say if we ran the joint?
Lay the rules and make the point?

Wishing you weren’t born the day we
Decided here and now to make you pay

This is the assumption
You must know how you function
Behind the enemy lines
Avoiding all the mines

What can I do to make you understand
We never gonna be walking hand in hand

We don’t have to live in a wonderful world
To be walking, talking and to be heard

This is the assumption
You must know how you function
Behind the enemy lines
Avoiding all the mines

You must know how you function
Track Name: Nail-Biting
Nail-biting - Norma // www.normanoise.com

What if all the lines upon your face
Would all lead back to a secret place?
Somewhere deep inside your crazy brain
Tying up a knot with thoughts in vain.

And all you wanna do is clear your head
Wash it all away, forget what I said.
But all these words are etched inside
With acid burns you just can’t hide.

When you’re away for good she’s always into me.
When you’re misunderstood she’s always into me.

What if all the thoughts you had today
Would never leave your head and always stay?
Bouncing back and forth against your skull
Running down your spine till you turn dull.

When you’re away for good she’s always into me.
When you’re misunderstood she’s always into me.

You’re doing all right your driveway shows
Two shiny cars in the porch light glows
Still I’m a black cloud in your blue sky
It’ll never work but we can try

When you’re away for good she’s always into me.
When you’re misunderstood she’s always into me.

When you’re away for good she’s always into me.
When you’re misunderstood she’s always into me.
Track Name: Teenage Dreams
Teenage Dreams - Norma // www.normanoise.com

Getting rid of the posters I’m too old for
These wasted years won’t come anymore
This Nevermind t-shirt and ragged jeans
My souvenirs of long gone teens

Teenage dreams are well out of range, and you are not
All my thoughts are about change, and you are not
All my days are all the same and you are

In lengthy pauses when the music stops
Just while we’re talking our daytime jobs

Teenage dreams are well out of range, and you are not
All my thoughts are about change, and you are not
All my days are all the same and you are not
Teenage dreams are well out of range and you are not
Track Name: She Said
She said - Norma // www.normanoise.com

She said: I’m tired of you ‘cause you always want some more
She said: All the years we spent were such a bore

If only she would ask me
I would surely say so

She said: I’m better off with a whole lot less of you
She said: You’re second best but you never had a clue

If only she would ask me
I would surely say so

It takes a while to distance me from you
And you can see this in everything I do
to make it worse with you.

She said: you only cried one more lousy tear
She said: what’s the use of another drowning year?

If only she would ask me
I would surely say so

It takes a while to distance me from you
And you can see this in everything I do
to make it worse with you.

It takes a while to distance me from you.

And you can see this, and you can see this.

It takes a while to distance me from you, from you.
Track Name: Illusion & Decay
Illusion & Decay - Norma // www.normanoise.com

Every occasion, every delay is a setback when you are trying to make it on your own
Every illusion, every decay is a backstab when all you want is a reason to be known

Try and loosen up for the weekend
Try and loosen up

Oh so you said I must have known
Always try and loosen up for the weekend
Try to loosen up

Every intrusion, every dismay is a death trap when you are trying to be great all alone

Try and loosen up for the weekend
Try and loosen up

Oh so you said I must have known
Always try and loosen up for the weekend
Try to loosen up

Try and loosen up for the weekend
Try and loosen up
Try and loosen up

Oh so you said I must have known
Track Name: 21
21 - Norma // www.normanoise.com

I was twenty one, I didn’t need you then
I was on a high and didn’t need you

I was holding on to what I had in mind
And I didn’t mind to hold on to you

Oooh, always 21
Oooh, always 21
Track Name: Words Mean Nada
Words Mean Nada - Norma // www.normanoise.com

There’s something I should say
I follow you all day
Your photos at the mall
Are on my basement wall

Been watching you at night
Hiding from the side
Waiting in my car
Spying from afar

The lights were on and someone’s on the phone
So is it true that you are not alone?

Words mean nothing
In the end it’s just you and me
Words mean nothing

I stole your number and
Dialed it twice again
I tried to talk to you
But I could not get through

The lights were on and someone’s on the phone
So is it true that you are not alone?

Words mean nothing
In the end it’s just you and me
Words mean nothing

Words mean nothing
Is it true that you are not alone?
Track Name: Gum On The Pavement
Gum on the pavement - Norma // www.normanoise.com

Something that you’re waiting for?
Wasn’t it the other way around?
All you do is waste your time
On something that ain’t never gonna happen

But it’s not your day, when you don’t have your way

Wasn’t it supposed to be like something you knew?
Wasn’t it supposed to be so easy to do?
Yet it’s not.

Is there something that you’re waiting for?
Wasn’t it the other way around?

And you’re so uptight
Stuck as gum on the pavement right?
Track Name: Hemingway Way
Hemingway way - Norma // www.normanoise.com

You made me understand you just wanna make me laugh
You made me understand no jokes on your behalf
I wish I could wish you a merry Verona
And all I got you was bloody Pamplona
Blazing heat and a madding crowd
And raging bulls walking all over you

Looking good in Hemingway way
I wonder why he enjoyed his stay

Pa pa pa pa pa pa pada pa pa pa

In a Hemingway way
Hemingway, Hemingway, Hemingway

This is a wasteland, not the slightest attraction
This is a hell with the appeal of a ditch
We have to make a search for a piece of the action
Some change of course in a flick of a switch
You made me understand you wanted to rest
You made me understand you’re getting distressed
well so do I

Looking good in Hemingway way
I wonder why he enjoyed his stay

Pa pa pa pa pa pa pada pa pa pa

In a Hemingway way
Hemingway, Hemingway, Hemingway

Looking good
In a Hemingway, Hemingway way.
Track Name: Bad Luck For Wilbur Brink
Bad Luck For Wilbur Brink - Norma // www.normanoise.com

Defending champion Billy Arnold leads
Accidentally losing one of the wheels
Sailing straight at a wandering boy
2316 Georgetown Road

1931 Indianapolis Race
A case of wrong time, wrong place
Legendary for a different reason
This is the story of the darkest season

Bad Luck for Wilbur Brink

Almost 80 years later on
We still remember in a simple song
We still recall in a trivial way
Wilbur junior who just wants to play

He never knew what was coming to him
Struck by lightning ever so grim
We will remember in a trivial way
Wilbur junior who wanted to stay

Bad Luck for Wilbur Brink

He could have been president
He could have been anything
No paper and ink for Wilbur Brink
Bad Luck for Wilbur Brink

He could have been a talk show host
He could have been making the most
No paper and ink for Wilbur Brink
Bad Luck for Wilbur Brink
