about

second studio album by The Magnificent Brotherhood

Rudi Protrudi of The Fuzztones on "Dope Idiots":

In this age of crass consumerism and mindless mediocrity, true craftsmanship seems to be all but extinct. When some faceless shmuck gets more respect by spinning records for the masses than an actual band receives by playing live music, what is the incentive to create? How many times have I listened to some old record, and been totally knocked out by the superior songwriting, the advanced musicianship, the inspired performance, and remarked, "They don't make records like this anymore!" Well, it turns out that they still do! - or at least someone does - and that someone is The Magnificent Brotherhood! Rich with intricate riffs, clever arrangements and hooks to spare, each song on this album is a masterpiece and would probably be a top 10 record back in the day when talent ruled the airwaves. They say Talent Is It's Own Reward. If that's so, the Brotherhood are very rich men. And that's incentive enough.

Track Name: I Want To
I WANT TO
(Kiryk Drewinski)


Every time I think of you, I want to call you.
Every time I call you, I want to see you.
Every time I see you, I want to feel you;
feel you, touch you, kiss you too,
do all the things that lovers do.

I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.
I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.

Every time you see me you’re runin’ from me.
Every time you’re runin’ I come to follow.
Every time I follow you try to hide, girl.
I know you don’t want me now
but that turns me on somehow...

I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.
I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.

I got tired one day of runin’ for you.
Found me another girl that I now belong to.
Now you come along and looking with your deer eyes,
right into my puzzled face suddenly I hear you say:

I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.
I want to. Yes, I want to. I want to, yes, I do.
Track Name: All Because Of You
ALL BECAUSE OF YOU
(Kiryk Drewinski)


It’s all because of you!
All because of you!
All because of you!

There’s nothin’ I can do and there’s nothin’ that I could say.
There’s really nothin‘ that could stop me now from feelin’ this way.
And just before I go I would like to let you know,
I would rather tell you straight than to be untrue.

Yes, it’s all because of you!
All because of you!
All because of you!

I can’t eat and I can’t sleep and I can’t even write my name.
Day time, night time, any time, it’s all the same.
Just before you go there’s something you should know,
I would rather tell you straight than to be without you.

AAaaah, yeah!!

I know, I know, I know, I know I’m gonna love you anyway.
There’s nothin’ you can do and there’s nothin’ that you could say.
Just before we go I would like to let you know,
I would rather tell you straight than to be untrue...

chorus repeat
Track Name: Divine Advice
DIVINE ADVICE
(Erik Haegert)


Asked the oracle and the wise men. Here is what they all would say:
„If you search releaf from sorrow you must dance your life away“.

„Move your feet, shake ypur ass, it‘s no test you must pass.
Once you´re out on that dancefloor kid, you´ll have gotten rid of that pain you hid.
Take divine advice“.

Got dressed up, went to a club with mirrorballs and lights of red.
Bunch of freaks out on the dancefloor, here‘s what everybody said:

„Move your feet, shake ypur ass, it‘s no test you must pass.
Once you´re out on that dancefloor kid, you´ll have gotten rid of that pain you hid.
Take divine advice“.

Now I am a happy fellow, geting down with no delay.
Theres no use for science and schoolbooks when you can dance your life away.

„Move your feet, shake ypur ass, it‘s no test you must pass.
Once you´re out on that dancefloor kid, you´ll have gotten rid of that pain you hid.
Take divine advice“.

„Move your feet, shake ypur ass, it‘s no test you must pass.
Once you´re out on that dancefloor kid, you´ll have gotten rid of that pain you hid.
Take divine advice“.
Track Name: Too Much
TOO MUCH
(Kiryk Drewinski)


There‘s a feeling I get when I look in your eyes,
some time ago I did realize.
It seems that we both were made for each other
but playing sister and brother.

And deep inside my thoughts I hide.
Girl you better stay away because I ...

...do like you just a little bit too much.
I do like you just a little bit too much.
Don‘t you call. Don‘t you try to get in touch
‘cause I like you just a little bit too much.

You know that I know that you feel it too.
We never lose a word about that big taboo.
I‘ve got my woman and you‘ve got your man
and his is a thing I hardly understand.

Deep inside our love we hide.
I guess you better stay away because I ...

...do like you just a little bit too much.
I do like you just a little bit too much.
Don‘t you call. Don‘t you try to get in touch
‘cause I like you just a little bit too much.

Aaaaaah!!!

It took a long time to recognize my lover.
I can‘t hold out; won‘t keep love undercover.
The more I‘m saying nothing the more I‘ve got to say,
so listen baby what I‘m putting down today:

I went inside. I made up my mind.
For tonight I‘m gonna stay here with you because I ...

...do like you just a little bit too much.
I do like you just a little bit too much.
No more hiding, no delusion no more such
‘cause I like you just a little bit too much.

Come on and do your thing now!

...Because I do like you just a little bit too much.
I do like you just a little bit too much.
Don‘t have to call, baby now we‘re ought to touch
‘cause I like you just a little bit too much.

I do like you just a little bit too much.
I do like you just a little bit too much.

A little bit too much!
A little bit too much!
A little bit too much!
A little bit too much!
Track Name: Degeneration
DEGENERATION
(Erik Haegert)


Lookin’ at me, what I am and what I could be.
I think to my self there is a slight difference and this thought comes to me:

The sweets we used to eat were poisoned.
The ice cream melted in the sun.
It bured my brains and now I am here, degenerated,

degenerated, degenerated, yeah!

Lookin’ at you, what you are and what you could be.
I found out that you are just as degenerated as me.

You fell asleep when you were fourteen just to awake at fourtyfive.
You’ll find your life’s a mess and that you’re a degenerate.

Degenerated, degenerated, degenerated, yeah!

..degeneration, degeneration...

So, when I feel down, degenerated. There’s not much I have to do.
Still lucky. Degenerated in a different way than you.

Here have some sweets, don’t care about poison. You’ll
sweat it out here in the sun. I bought a fridge and you know
I think I rather keep degeneratin’,

degeneratin’, degeneratin’, yeah!

degeneratin’, degeneratin’, degeneratin’, yeah!
Track Name: Last Song About You
LAST SONG ABOUT YOU
(Kiryk Drewinski)


There was a time when I was needin’ all your love ...your love.
That was the time when there was nothin’ else above ...above.

but baby, now that time has changed and maybe I’m the one to blame.
But now I know this song I sing’s gonn’ be the last one
about you...

...’cause I am through with you ...Ooooh! That’s right!
now I’m in love with another girl. ...Ooooh! And that’s fine.
I’m feelin’ oh so fine.

There was a time when I was tryin’ to make up ...your mind.
But you just turned away and told me all your lies ...so I cried.

but baby, now that time has changed and maybe I’m the one to blame.
But now I know this song I sing’s gonn’ be the last one about you...

...’cause I am through with you ...Ooooh! And that’s fine!
I’m feelin’ oh so fine!

Found me a girl and she is sweet as she can be ...uuuuuweee!!
I love my baby and my baby is in love with me ...you can see.

And baby, now the time has changed and baby I’m so glad to say
that now I know this song I sing’s gonn’ be the first one ‘bout my gal...

...’cause I’m in love with her ...Ooooh! That’s right!
I’m in love with a girl so fine. ...Ooooh! She’s mine.
I’m feelin’ oh so fine!
Track Name: Psychosis
PSYCHOSIS
(Erik Haegert)


This is ‘bout me, who once had a c to buy some lsd.
So I bought some trips for me and my peeps and wondered
how it would be.

When it had begun and it sure was fun, I had a funny feelin’
but then it came on strong and something went wrong and I
went out through the ceiling.

I is gone. Something is wrong! What’s happening?
Minutes ago I still would have known just who I am.

aaaAAAHHh!!...

I went for a flight, I tell you, outtasight! Right trough my
subconscious dynamics.
Fell into a void, said hello to pink floyd and talked to
Jimi Hendrix.
Then I went to the moon, had to realize soon that I had to
get away, cause there were monsters around and my mind
was just bound for a happier day.

I is gone. Something is wrong! What’s happening?
Minutes ago I still would have known just who I am.

Then the rain fell down and it made a sound I just couldn’t
understand.
Soon a woman came along and told me to go on and I came
to a wonderland.

I is gone. Something is wrong! What’s happening?
Minutes ago I still would have known just who I am.

Psychosis...
Psychosis...
Psychosis...
Psychosis...
Track Name: You Can Only Guess
YOU CAN ONLY GUESS
(Kiryk Drewinski)


Now you know it. It‘s got to be the truth cause you saw it on telly.
Yes, they show it again and again and again you take it.

But suddenly you realize that words can burn you like fire.
Your imagination is drawing pictures more or less...

...but you can only guess.
You can only guess what you don‘t know.
You can only guess.
But you will never know.

So you love her. She said she would be home for dinner at seven.
She‘s also in love but you‘re still alone and it‘s half past eleven.

So you start to fantasize. A thought can burn you like fire.
Your imagination is drawing pictures more or less...

...but you can only guess.
You can only guess what you don‘t know.
You can only guess.
But you will never know.

...guess what!!...

Intuition, anticipation or paranoia.
Your mind is going around and around and around the corner.

Again you come to realize that thoughts can burn you like fire.
Your imagination is growing pictures more or less...

...but you can only guess.
You can only guess what you don‘t know.
You can only guess.
You can only guess if you don‘t know.
You can only guess.
Now, you can only guess what you don‘t know.
You can only guess.
But you will never know.
No, no, no, no, no, no!
Track Name: Upside Down
UPSIDE DOWN
(Kiryk Drewinski)


Come and step into my world. I‘m living upside down.
There was a smile up on my face where now is a frown.

I go to bed with the sunrise and I awake with the moon.
I use to eat my soup with a fork, cut my meat with a spoon.
I cut my meat with a spoon.

I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down.

I give a smile when the pain comes. I have to cry when I‘m glad.
And all those jolly, plastic people are making me sad.

I‘ve got bad, bad luck. Can‘t tell a fly from a bee
but sometime I just close my eyes and then I can see.
And then I can see it:

I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down.

chorus: Turn around, around, turn around, around...

Somebody told me to.
That‘s what I went to do.
I turned around just to see.
180 degrees.
But not a thing has changed
and all remains the same.

Oh yeah, all right, aaaaah! Well ok, come on, bring it on down now!

There‘s no good and no bad. There‘s no in between
and if your wourld is upside down I guess you know what I mean.

Even my crazy life is the best I ever had
and the funniest thing about it is that I like it like that.
I guess I like it like that.

I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down,
with my head to the ground.
my ass is wearing a crown.
I‘m livin‘ upside down.
