Track Name: Time out (radio edit)
Another day, another hero
In the ratrace to the top
From a nono to the CEO
He’s going fast and it doesn’t stop
I need to think while time goes on and on
I have to be the number one
and I just want to lay down in the sun

(aaaaaah) Come on mister Referee
(aaaaaah) It's all going too fast for me
(aaaaaah) I'm on a different frequency
(aaaaaah) And you can kill the enemy
for a while, or I will never catch up
I need a time out

I’m really good and have big ambitions
But I’m not going fast enough
I’m not a man of quick decisions
To stay the course is really tough
I like to play and keep things open
Like always being twenty-one
and I just want to lay down in the sun

(aaaaaah) Come on mister Referee
(aaaaaah) It's all going too fast for me
(aaaaaah) I'm on a different frequency
(aaaaaah) And you can kill the enemy
for a while, or I will never catch up
How will I ever catch up?
I want the time to stop
I need a time out

And how I want to lay down in the sun

I need a time out to chill
I need a time out to think
I need a time out to stand still
I need a time out to drink
I need a time out to relax
I need a time out to remind
I need a time out to go back in time
Track Name: You need a shredder (radio edit)
Now that you are famous
What entertains us
Is every little detail of your private life
And when you tell us nothing
They'll search in your dustbin
And find the information we like

You need a shredder
You need a shredder
You need a shredder
You need a shredder

You need a shredder in your life
When you've got everything to lose
You want to keep your secrets to yourself
And so you choose
The shredder as your best friend
You can call him John
Though he's the one that sees it all
He'll never pass it on
The shredder

You need a shredder
You need a shredder
You need a shredder
You need a shredder

You need a shredder in your life
When you've got everything to hide
You’ve learned that there is no-one you can trust
So you decide
The shredder is your best friend
You can call him Pete
Though he's the one that sees it all
He's determined to delete
The shredder
You need a shredder

Is heel je leven openbaar
En ben je met die toestand klaar
Maak dan je dromen waar
Papierversnipperaar
Track Name: No matching socks (2009 remix)
It's early in the morning and this room is a mess
I can't find no matching socks today
No, it isn't easy getting up and getting dressed
I can't find no matching socks today

No matching socks
And I am in a hurry
No matching socks
And they called it a day
Still I've got you
So there's no need to worry
We fit together in such a perfect way

I wonder why those socks have left each other last night
Cause there are no matching socks today
In my little drawer, there must have been a bloody fight
There are no matching socks today


No matching socks
And I am in a hurry
No matching socks
And they called it a day
Still I've got you
So there's no need to worry
We fit together in such a perfect way

No matching socks
And I am in a hurry
No matching socks
They didn't want to stay
Still I've got you
But do we need to worry?
Cause we fit together in such a perfect way
We fit together in such a perfect way
Just like those socks,
We fit together in such a perfect way
Track Name: My second life (AL synth edit)
I want to be alone I’m sorry but it’s true
I need to slip into my secret world
And I’m not prepared to share this world
With anyone, so you’ll Just have to wait
‘till I come out of it again

O, it’s not that I am mad at you
And it’s not that I don’t care or that I
Don’t want to be with you
It’s just that I feel bad about my life
And all the things that I cannot change
Though I want to

My secret world is good and it makes me quite relaxed
My secret world has everything I need
It gives me power, new energy
And the strength to carry on
I’m doing what I want and I feel free

O, it’s true that I am hiding
And it’s true that it’s not fair
To keep a part of me from you
But my secret world’s providing
Me the part that’s missing here
And that's belonging to me too
So in this world I lead
My second life

There’s a picture in my mind
That shows exactly how my life should be
But it’s not reality
And it doesn’t count you out
Cause in my secret world you’re still
My only love and you’re with me
But for now, I really need
My second life
