Track Name: I'm Afraid the Bird Will Die
I'm Afraid the Bird Will Die

It's hard to look directly into the sun
There's a bird flyin' in the sky
Things done can never ever be undone
“I'm afraid the bird will die.“

Bird's been flyin' high yet now she's fallen low
Mrs. Fox found her lyin' in the snow and said:
“Frozen ground's replaced her bright blue sky.“
“I'm afraid the bird will die.“

Rabbit the Postman is runnin' through the woods
Runnin' fast, screamin' out the news:
“Have you heard about the bird in the sky?“
“They all say that she will die!“
“Oh, they say the bird will die!“

All at once all the woods knew her name
The sad news stopped young beavers at their play
Doctor Bear said: “This bird will never fly“
“Her wings are broken, she will die.“
“I'm afraid the bird will die.“
“I'm afraid the bird will die.“
“I'm afraid the bird will die.“

With a tear in his eye
Even the Wolf began to cry.
Track Name: Little Red Ridin' Hood
Little Red Riding Hood

Once upon a time in a land not far away
Little Red Riding Hood
Stepped outside her house just to play
But then came The Bad Wolf
With some candies in his hand, and
He gave some to the poor little girl
Just to make her a one night stand

She shouldn't have gone so alone with the lonely wolf
Can't blame her for she's just a girl
But how many more times do we have to see the story end
Oh, the way it shouldn't end?

And there she goes right there
Dancing with the Wolf
Sure, momma said: You shan't!
But she danced and danced and danced

... Oh, she danced alright ...
... Now listen what happened next ...

The Big Bad Wolf put a smile upon his face
And said to the girl:
“Child,let me take you to my place
It's warmer inside
And you won't be feelin' so alone, no
C'mon, let's take that red coat off
You better make yourself at home.“
He wanted to eat up her legs and her everything
Can't blame him for he's just a wolf
But how many more times do we have to see the story end
Oh, the way it shouldn't end?

And there he goes right there
Tearing apart the girl
There is blood everywhere
But noone seems to care

Then suddenly, somebody appeared at the front door
The Bad Wolf got scared, he threw the child on the marble floor
It was her daddy, his name was John, but they called him Stich
He had a rifle in his hand, he came to kill that son of a bitch
And you may assume how this dreadful story ends
But it will surprise you
Yeah, the Bad Wolf got shot
But the girl, she was dead
Oh, the girl, she was dead

And there he goes right there
Blowin' up his brains
There is blood on his hands
Now everybody cares

... and the mother ...
She lived happily ever after ...
... I don't think so ...
Track Name: The Wolves
The Wolves

He cut himself on the blade of life
Now he's on his own, lost in the night
A pack of wolves behind his back hope he bleeds to death
Or is it in his head?
The wolves were in the skins of sheep
He didn't see the claws on their feet
But there he stood in foggy woods with the strong will to survive

I don't understand
Your knife in my back
I thought we were friends
Ready to bite whenever he can
I don't understand
Man is a wolf to another man

He cried for help but there was no one there
To feel the pain that he had to bear
They tore him apart, his blood was hot
He could see his own guts in the mud
To tell you the truth, no he won't lie
He thought: “This is the way that I am going to die!“
Then suddenly he saw the light, the night was out of sight

I don't understand
Your knife in my back
I thought we were friends
Ready to bite whenever he can
Man is a wolf to another man

/They live in a pack
Better watch your back, son/
