"The Show Tonight" as written by and John Engelbert....
Well tonight I stay home
'cause I don't want to bother
my child who feels empty
and sick of it's mother, when you're
bored by yourself you wanna
care for another but empathy
don' fit in emotional slaughter

Death won't greet you with open
arms, you'll accept it, because
your heart has been crying
right from the start of your twenties
so let's not pretend

Hey

Well tonight I stay home
cause I don´t want to bother
my child who feels empty
and sick of it's mother, when you're
bored by yourself you wanna
care for another but empathy
don't fit in emotional slaughter

Death won't greet you with open
arms, you'll accept it, because
your heart has been crying
right from the start of your twenties
let's play in the sand,
like we used to
take comfort in mum
like we used to, have a caramel
and be happy, plan one day ahead
like we used to

Now put your hands together for
the persons who made it
that look of success is the one you
just hated
Aren't you bored by yourself,
oh you share with another
you've gone through the book now
you care for eachother, right

Death won't greet you with open
arms, you'll accept it, because
your heart has been crying
right from the start of your twenties
let's play in the sand,
like we used to
take comfort in mum
like we used to, have a caramel
and be happy, plan one day ahead
like we used to

Well tonight I stay home
cause I don't want to bother
my child who feels empty
and sick of it's mother,
but forget it, you just
get in the snow with the others
the rest of the pigs are
your sisters and brothers

I don't care about the show tonight
as long as you're with me
I´ll be ok.
