It‘s hard being a man Sparkling romance Above blue sky All is intact But it is just the first act You wanna become an adventure You wanna be a picture A picture in their mind A picture of the kind It fades, it never It‘s hard being a man

Sinister 02:26
Straight ahead, up your head You find yourself at a cocktail party Dressed so sharp and talking so fancy Talking about things being black or white But actually boy, you know a shade of grey Straight ahead, up your head You gaze at those pretty, pretty girls After words, it follows action You help yourself with a convient lie Put on a charming fake smile Straight ahead, up your head What would your mother say right now And your father, I mean how Your siblings, your brothers and your sister Turned your back on them You went all sinister Straight ahead, up your head You help yourself with a convient lie Put on a charming fake smile A charming fake smile Straight ahead, up your head

My reality is more real than yours My dreams are more dreamy than yours My style, it is cheaper than yours And my wit girl, it is heavier than yours And uh Babe, that‘s a fact Uh Babe, I am a fact It‘s more complicated than that I run hot, when you won‘t I am not, cause you are a lot I am so stressed, ‘cause you always protest I am a mess, but you are no less And uh Babe, that‘s a fact Uh Babe, I am a fact It‘s more complicated than that Oh your eyes, they got more blue than mine Oh your lips, they are softer than mine Oh your skin, it got more colour than mine All in all you are prettier than I And uh Babe, that‘s a fact Uh Babe, I am a fact It‘s more complicated than that
4.
Lately I am not my fucking self Every decision feels like theft You fucked up, thought I‘d understand But it‘s not that easy when you smile like that It‘s hard, I am trying It‘s complicated, I am trying It‘s always you Never me You are not helping, you are not exactly easy And how you dare, treat me as you do It‘s not kind, you‘re fucking with my mind I am losing my cool, I am not your fool It‘s hard, I am trying It‘s complicated, I am trying It‘s always you Never me
5.
Keep getting me wrong Keep saying I am strong Keep making me feel Keep saying I am steel It‘s not okay Not okay That‘s not okay What do you want me to say? Keep saying I am the man Keep saying I give a damn I do what I can I‘ve got a plan It‘s not okay Not okay That‘s not okay What do you want me to say? It‘s hardly working, working out And that is okay What do you want me to say? Keep getting me wrong What do you want me to say?

Christine 05:17
Oh, what did you do? Oh Christine Come on, make it good Come on, make it fast Make me change my mood And make it last Come on be happy Please be funny Don‘t be witty It makes you look silly Oh Christine I really like your style Oh Christine You wanna make me like Oh Christine I like it when you smile Oh Christine Please don‘t let it die Oh Christine What did you do? Come on, crack up a smile Hey act alive Don‘t be too real It makes them feel Come on, you can cry What a stoic life Why would you lie You are nothing like your profile Oh Christine Life is so funny Oh Christine Life is so boring Oh Christine I know that you know Oh Christine Don‘t act so shallow
7.
Possibilities, they are endless So they say, well more or less Sure you can, walk on water As long as you are blessed For others it is just a stressful test I hope you‘ve got what it takes ‘Cause for others it is just like catching snowflakes I hope you‘ve got what it takes ‘Cause for others it is just like eating cupcakes In time there will be light It will shine so bright We will not lose sight Just hold thight

JOHNNY BATARD Graz, Austria

A little indie, more rock'n'roll and three chords. What seems to be few ingredients can be quite filling, as mixed on Johnny Batard's debut record 'What Do You Want Me To Say?'

With Johnny Batard, the Kingsized 'Bastards bass player has finally found the right valve to pour his rascals into indie noise. He is the singer who is looking for love only to throw it away immediately.
