    Hi all!
    I'm sort of collecting MP lyrics here and there in the net, and there's a lot of blank spaces around.

    95% of the early production (up to IALC) is covered by the Bent himself here in the site. And that's awesome.

    Three other albums (Black Holes Blank Canvas, Death Defying Unicorn, Here Be Monsters - And Here Be Monster 2 too!) have lyrics on their sleeves, and that's great.

    Most of the remaining material have been decrypted by some people quite good at understanding English, probably some of you northern psychonauts who are taught English when you're children.

    But I'm Italian, and though I've studied and used and talked English for decades, my vocabulary is still not rich enough to understand all the deliriums sung by the Bent and Snah.

    I tried. And I'm sharing you some very poor results just as an encouragement for someone who's smarter than me to fill in the blank and correct the ugly attempts I made on some lyrics.

    If you'll submit your versions, I'll update my post. Thanks in advance to whoever will cooperate!

    President Block (Stenøien)

    Helge's singing is a mess. So I referred to the cleaner original Epinastic Movements version that you can find on Spotify, even though I'm sure that MP's version have some different words

    All the time in the president block
    I was feeling alone in this (securing van)
    (???) noise from the depths of my mind
    Searching in a field what I find
    Did one thing that I knew it would hate
    Still justice is based in someone’s other way
    I am mad but I’m fixed and went bad
    Learning for the freedom that I had

    And I am riding down the interstate
    In a car that isn’t mine
    I’ll fly like bridges over waters
    Free from (?) and what I’ll find

    All the time in the president cell
    I was conned but still able to communicate
    With a part of my body and my mind
    Wishing I was juggling……….. mind
    I have terror and killing in my face
    Those scum is well willing to cooperate
    And a Christian (?) deal that I have done
    Wishing that I haven’t missed around

    And in the early morning I will laughter
    As the sun stands up
    And smile and smelling glory feelings
    Watching echoes full of crap

    And I should’ve done a better job in
    Finding freedom
    And I should’ve killed those bastards
    Since I’ve got the time

    All the time on the execute block
    I can feel all the time running out from me
    In a way I’m perfectly dwell
    Knowing that’s there’s no get (?)

    (Chorus)
    (Bridge)

    (Here in the) rain and feeling the wind blow
    Shutting my eyes in search for one chance
    That I’ve never got in my life

    BLISSARD DELUXE EDITON OUTTAKES:

    I'm quite clueless on most of these lyrics, all you will read is just something that sounds in my ear...

    The Matter with Her

    This one is 90% done by Rolf!

    Super-Sister understands
    All that makes this wonder-man
    Try to be who you can be but share it with me some
    Wonder worlds and daydream land
    (Should he take and win again???)
    And hold it for a while but then she took a fall
    She mesmerized (?)
    She took our guilt upon herself and burn

    I didn’t know I didn’t see any of
    That the matter with her was

    She soldiered on while we still slaved
    Back while the road was truly paved
    With good intentions by a heart (???)
    No one really asked for it
    I couldn’t blame myself one bit
    I didn’t know (???) what I thought
    Oblivious to the fall to mesmerize us all
    She took our guilt upon herself and burn

    (Chorus)
    Was me

    When the World Sleeps (Sæther)

    When the world sleeps quiet sleeps
    Keeps me awake
    When the world sleeps I’m awake again
    You’re not…..
    ?
    ?
    I’m so ….. now you shell
    Can sustain yourself against….
    When the world sleeps

    Black W’abbit (The Alabama Kids)

    She has sleep see ….
    Six hours and seven days of official lies
    Been so alone, so fucking …
    ….
    Better ….. and turn on me

    Well he say you can rock and roll success
    They say it’s just a matter of…
    And it gets you surprise to us
    Just to make another lousy 50 cents….

    At night when I sleep I see the colors
    I hear them…. outside
    ….. and never stops
    Raise up man say these things are so easy
    ....different man
    Sure that feels like

    They say you (make your own) can rock and roll success
    And they tell you on telling it’s just a…. way
    So it get you …. Pasture vows to get on
    Just to make another lousy 50 cents….

    But money that care we all like money huh
    …..what he really was
    And you know ………………………..

    I really want you have a key
    And I’ll believe in that bullshit
    Now I’ve seen that the world….. before him
    Tel you there’s no such….. concorde
    And the black w’abbit tell him home…..
    Instead of…….

    (Chorus)

    They only repay you….

    AADAP DELUXE EDITION OUTTAKES

    Caterpillar (Ryan / Sæther / Øien)

    Wrong and meaningless

    I wouldn’t cut on that it’s a lasting thing again
    These hum offences winding on the final frame

    My film was clouded by
    Your tainted wear
    The seasons breathing odor (?) clear

    Day all of initial
    Retreats as the tireless who trusts perfectly
    Something seems to stole away
    Just cross the terms somewhere down there

    (Chorus)

    Push to valor and I’ll pull a stray on you
    Relaxed and blissful would I tell now what to do
    Makes no difference if you lose to flam
    Will the (?) understand

    WALKIN' WITH J EP

    Bent once said "I'll ask Gebhardt for the lyrics", but then never happened...

    Junkfood Mailbomb (Gebhardt)

    Big contributions by Rolf

    I saw nothing I saw everything and all
    Laughed at everyone but it wasn’t fun at all

    Junkfood mailbomb
    Shouldn’t do what I have done
    Junkfood mailbomb
    I can’t escape what I’ve become

    Wiped out everything made it nice and clean for all
    But there was no one no one made it through the fall

    (Chorus)

    So I’m (confusional) for a while
    So I can take it with a smile

    Captain Geebheart (L: Gebhardt; M: Sæther / Ryan / Gebhardt)

    When I see other people do
    It doesn’t look like me and you
    It doesn’t even mean a thing to me
    When I hear other people see
    It makes me wanna go away
    It doesn’t even mean a thing to me

    And when I try to be myself and anybody offer self
    It doesn’t even mean a thing to me
    As long as I can be with you I can be a nice guy too
    It doesn’t even mean a thing to me

    And if it’s raining cats and dogs
    Anywhere cloathing tons of coats
    It doesn’t even mean a thing to me

    KR-3 (Gebhardt)

    Total nonsense here, I actually don't understand a word...

    In exception like Seattle
    We will look away the way I was
    Lyrics of the manor to blame
    Service as the jail in my saloon
    (????????)
    However bloody pilling left my ceiling
    In ash nobody seem to read
    (??????????)
    Silver needles share all sparkles
    Blurred stars and tons of martyrs
    Poly biscuits running stitches
    Burning wishes almost fixing

    There should be enough

    SERPENTINE EP

    Fade to Grey (Sæther / Ryan)

    Someone arrive today
    The city’s alight when I’m on her interplay
    The girls they all seem to glow
    When the gold of the sun ain’t the brilliance of rainbow

    I don’t need no (?) no loneliness
    I wish that he would stay
    June in my heart till the end of May
    May he never fade to grey

    Will arrive at (?) sprayed
    Will (???) by the end of the day
    ? my dogs and hits
    Mining for (document???) between the sheets

    (Chorus)

    Dream away wake up to your headache
    Capture her I know I’ll never fade to grey

    Bonny Lee (Sæther)

    Great contributions by Rolf

    I know you think you know me
    Or who I might have been
    I know where I’ll be standing
    When the saints come marching in
    Nothing comes from judgment this all is always free
    Nothing’s all I’ve been left with
    When I’ve paid my lawyer’s fee

    I used to be a player you’ve seen me once or twice
    I’m more than just the reruns
    And a face on the merchandise
    I fought all pretenders I never took a die
    I have my share of bad rates but hey I’m still alive

    I didn’t do it I didn’t do what they claim
    I can never play that game

    Now Bonny liked my money Bonny dug the play
    Everyone liked Bonny ‘cos Bonny like to swing
    Bonny was a teacher Bonny liked …..
    Bonny had a mouth on her drive any man insane

    I swear it’s all hearsay I don’t have explained
    Never pretending never this hard
    Never forgotten never (???)

    I.C.U. (Boinganoid) (Sæther / Ryan / Kapstad)

    Seeking silence breaking from the storm
    Seeking shelter from the noise
    Finding anger finding pain finding nothing said again
    There’s no real difference ‘tween (?)
    And so (?) to your point of view – I see you

    Be a stoic be a dream be the diver in the sea
    Catch a fever catch the sky catch the world if you try
    I see you

    THE MOTORPNAKOTIC FRAGMENTS

    I really spent few time here, I didn't even try to make sense of the verses. So you'll find mostly wrong stuff...

    The Jig Is Up (Kiss the Snake) (Sæther)

    Hey man the jig is up
    (???) will not see no empty head
    For you the jig is up
    We have no turn with anything that it gets slow

    So now that the jig is up
    It’s when (?) behind the (?) in the glow
    ‘cos now the jig is up
    I think you only have a word misunderstand

    Waiting I ain’t got love or fear
    Waiting I hope that someone cares

    So now the jig is up
    My head explaining and see (????) mouth
    Oh yeah the jig is up
    And nothing now can save me…………

    Saving I will not know your eyes
    (?) in heaven …..
    (Chorus)

    So now the jig is up
    How does it feel to know you failed and missed too late
    As (?) has truly said

    (Chorus)

    Mockingbird (Sæther)

    Don’t believe a single word
    Never mind what you have heard

    I sort of (?) never true
    And breaks (????)
    But only lies will never sue

    His (?) warning hymn
    I’m almost always blind
    But in the morning hymn
    This desert really ……..

    So don’t believe a single word
    ‘cos I cannot (???) the mockingbird
    My words are nothing true when the sunlight lies to you
    But if I told you ……..

    His (?) warning hymn
    I almost never heard
    But in the morning hymn
    This desert really ……..

    (Repeat 1st verse)

    My words are nothing true when the sunlight lies to you
    I sing so I can dream for you

    Cannot (???) the mockingbird

    One Way or Another (Sæther)

    With contributions by GBD

    I would show no man no push over one way or another
    And I would show them I won’t take it laying down
    One last time
    ‘cos I have had as much as I can take
    And one way or another
    I would show that I’m no loser and no clown
    One last time

    ‘cos if I don’t it won’t ever start
    Pushing pulling down
    It’ll never end and never be enough
    Pushing me this way pulling me that way
    Tearing me down

    I never thought that it could go this far
    One way or another
    The grind ground on and somehow raised the bar
    One more time
    It’s not too late there’s still some fight left in this hound
    In one way or another
    I left my leg and widdle on your playground
    One last time

    (Chorus)

    Forget It (Sæther)

    I keep my shoulders elevated
    High strong I will (????) high
    You always act as you’re sedated
    Sometimes it makes me wanna cry

    Forget it no one wants to know
    Forget it just can’t stand (???) soul
    Forget it find some other way
    Forget it
    But it’s never quite as rigid as they say

    When the time you took get tracking
    They’re like me impatient but up-tied
    Why don’t you do your self-(?)
    Done through unless you do it right

    Forget it no one wants to know
    Forget I just (???) when it’s small
    Forget it find some other way
    Forget it
    But it’s never quite that rigid anyway

    I’m calling different dispositions
    I say fast when you say slow
    But if we don’t get stuck in other sessions
    We’ll get fine whichever way we go

    Forget it I don’t really wanna know
    Forget it just get (???) when it’s (???)
    Forget it we’ll find some other way
    Forget it
    It’s never quite as rigid as they say

    Cutie in Decay (No Parachute) (Sæther)

    Lots of corrections by Rolf

    He pulled his pants down in despair
    Checked to see if all was there
    He felt so neutered by those words
    Maybe maybe he misheard

    He knew it wouldn’t be no way so much scored
    But then one day the blinds were drawn

    I started sitting (???) through
    Doesn’t matter what you too
    The man said it’s all in your head
    If you wake up then you’re dead

    Chill your eyes
    This cutie in decay withstand and look away
    In the end it doesn’t matter anyway
    It’s so hid in there effervescent (???)
    Of selfish hollow caress
    When you wake you know it’s fake

    And when the circus tent’s in town
    You turn you up and they turn you down
    And nothing less than overpaid
    (At least you get to do it again in a day)

    Chill your soul
    Make sure you leaves us (scary?)
    If you drown (????)
    (???) remember just how beautiful (???)

    So take these senses please calm down
    Try this gruesome everywhere
    It doesn’t matter what you do
    In the end it all could talk to you

    So dream sweet (???) from everyone
    (chorale)
    (chorale)
    Build (???) ever sing a song
    (chorale)
    (chorale)

    Whiskey and Rock ‘n’ Roll (Sæther / Ryan / Borten / Rocket / B)

    You give me whiskey I’ll play guitar
    You take my picture and you tell me I’m a star
    I’ve never worried I know my part
    My special talents always getting to the arms
    I’m ever rocking I rock and roll
    My funky music makes you (?) lose control
    I always (?????) when I hear that call
    ‘cos I’m a (???) sucker for that whiskey and rock and roll

    I dance with demons I play with rust
    You never meant (????) to get enough
    Down in your (???) this boogaloo
    As if this (???) has whiskey and rock and roll
    Come on let us (????)
    Hey this unreachable fame
    Gets much to my guitar and may (???) sing

    When I start drinking I get drunk
    And when I’m dazing then I wanna play some funk
    I gotta (???) you know my love
    You know for sure will make it and never fake it
    You know will nights flow
    With whiskey and rock and roll

    Future of Our Nation (Ford)

    Everywhere see despair
    People what’s the future of our nation
    Look around we’re going down
    What happened to our jubilation
    If we’re strong we will force (????)

    There is no time for hesitation
    What is the future of our nation

    Every day in every way politicians give solutions
    But in my mind I know it’s time
    (To be the future institutions)
    Just wait for me…….. (?????)

    (Chorus)

    All a while we try to (???)
    We can tell …. (????)
    (???) today (???) we better pray today
    Someone will come to protect us
    Just wait for the …….

    (Chorus)

    (Repeat 1st verse)

    (Chorus)

    Dominoes (Ryan / Sæther)

    Lots of corrections by Rolf

    You found me when I was an open rose
    When I was yours for the taking
    Well my defenses they came tumbling down
    You put an end to all my (???)

    No one will say it
    But everybody knows
    Down they came tumbling
    Like falling dominoes

    I gave you everything that I could give
    I loved you like I’ve loved no other
    Oh in a sparkle they came tumbling down
    When you went looking for another

    (Chorus)

    HAVE FUN!

    I posted my take on "One way or another" some time ago. Think it's pretty much right ->

    One way or another

    I will show them i'm no pushover
    One way or another
    And i will show them, i won't take it laying down
    One last time
    Cus i have had as much as i can take
    And one way or another
    I will show them i'm no loser and no clown
    One last time

    Cus if i don't it won't ever stop
    Pushing, pulling
    It'll never end and never be enough
    Pushing me this way, pulling me that way
    (Pushing, pulling)
    tearing me down

    I never thought that it could go this far
    One way or another
    The grind ground on and somehow raised the bar
    One more time
    It's not too late, there's still some fight left in this hound
    And one way or another
    I'll lift my leg and widdle on your playground
    One last time

    Cus if i don't it won't ever stop
    Pushing, pulling
    It'll never end and never be enough
    Pushing me this way, pulling me that way
    (Pushing, pulling)
    tearing me down

    If i don't it won't ever stop
    Pushing, pulling
    It'll never end and never be enough
    Pushing me this way, pulling me that way
    (Pushing, pulling)
    tearing me down

    I'm like you, always trying to figure out the lyrics! Here are some attempts to correct/improve:

    Cutie in Decay (No Parachute)

    He pulled his pants down in despair
    Checked to see if all was there
    He felt so neutered by those words
    Maybe maybe he misheard

    He knew he wouldn’t be no way so much scored
    But then one day the blinds were drawn

    ....
    It doesn't matter what you do
    .... said it’s all in your head
    If you wake up then you’re dead

    Chill your eyes
    This cutie in decay .... stand and look away
    In the end it doesn’t matter anyway
    It's all meaningless
    Effervescent ........
    .... selfish hollow caress
    When you wake you ....

    And when the circus tent's in town

    And nothing lasts ......
    At least you get to do it again in a day

    Chill your soul
    Make sure you leave us ......
    If you drown ..... ???
    .... remember just how beautifully ....

    So take(?) your senses, please calm down
    .... is gruesome everywhere
    It doesn’t matter what you do
    In the end it all could talk to you

    So dream sweet dreams for everyone
    (...)
    (...)
    .... ever sing a song
    (... dream their dreams for you ...)
    (...)

    Dominoes

    You found me when I was an open (rose?)
    When I was yours for the taking
    Well my defenses they came tumbling down
    You put an end to all my (aching?)

    No one will say it / is saying
    But/what everybody knows
    Down they came tumbling
    Like falling dominoes

    I gave you everything that I could give
    I loved you like I've loved no other
    And then I ..... it came tumbling down
    When you went (legging?) for another

    No one is saying
    What everybody knows
    Down it came tumbling
    Like falling dominoes

    No one will say it
    Everybody knows
    Down it comes tumbling
    Like falling dominoes

    The Matter With Her

    Super-Sister understands
    Only makes this wonder-man
    Try to be who you can be, but share it with me some
    Wonder worlds and daydream land ....
    She took .....
    And hold it for a while but then she took a fall
    She mesmerized ......

    I didn’t know

    To mesmerized us all
    She took our guilt upon herself and ....

    I didn't know
    I didn't see it
    That the matter with her was me

    (chorus x2)

    Junkfood Mailbomb

    I saw nothing
    I saw everything and all
    Laughed at everyone
    But it was no fun at all

    Junkfood mailbomb
    Shouldn’t do what I have done
    Junkfood mailbomb
    I can’t escape what I’ve become

    Wiped out everything
    Made it nice and clean for all
    But there was no one
    No one made it through the fall

    (Chorus)

    So I go fishing(?) for a while
    So I can take it with a smile

    ----------------------------------------
    And a couple of personal favorites:

    The Afterglow

    So the wheel has turned again
    And we're left here at the end
    Of something that was bigger than us all

    The old god has stepped down
    A king passed on his crown
    And left us tumbling in free-fall

    Nothing fills the void that we are facing
    No one's gravity is as strong
    And here we are spinning
    Farther apart as we were clinging
    To the memories we still share

    It's never just an end
    But it's not easy to transcend
    An entire lifetime and its weight

    The memories will last
    But the hole is just too vast
    Truly too big to negate

    A place is empty at the table
    Unanswered questions pile up on the floor
    And that former alliance
    Yields only the silence
    That we break as we learn to crawl

    Smaller than we were
    This math is all that were (?)
    We need more strength to hold the fort

    So be with us if you can
    We lack a holding hand (?)
    We need all your kindness as it were

    The things that you taught us
    About things in the cosmos
    It's time that we learn to walk

    Ghost

    Please understand it doesn't matter
    'cause right now you don't exist
    You have no place, you have no purpose
    And you're never ever missed

    I hope that you're flattered
    You've picked the scab off the sore
    So utterly worthless
    It's a hollow point that you score

    It's a high stakes game you're running
    But I'm not playing any more
    It's just endless repetition
    And I have heard it all before

    I see you've found a good companion
    I think you got what you've deserve
    I understand and I no longer worry
    You've got a brand new master to serve

    Let's stop feeling guilty
    I'm too tired and I'm closing the door
    I hope that you're happy
    'cause I'm not (here?) I'm sure

    (I really love you any more ???)

    I know you think you know me
    Or who I might have been
    I know where I'll be standing
    When the saints come marching in

    Nothing comes from judgment
    The soul is always free
    Nothing’s all I’ve been left with
    When I've paid my lawyer's fee

    I used to be a player
    You've seen me once or twice
    I'm more than just the reruns
    And a face on the merchandise

    I fought all pretenders
    I never took a die/dive
    I've had my share of bad rates
    But hey, I'm still alive

    I didn’t do it
    I didn’t do what they claim
    I can never play that game

    Well Bonny liked the money
    Bonny dug the ...
    Everyone liked Bonny
    Cause Bonny like to swing

    Bonny was a teacher
    Bonny liked the ...
    Bonny had a mouth on her
    drive any man insane

    I swear it’s all hearsay
    I don’t have explained (?)

    Never pretending
    Never this ...
    Never forgotten
    Never ....

    @GBD: Thanks a lot, our versions were really similar, I'm happy to see that my English is not totally rubbish!

    @Rolf: great, your contributions are really brilliant! I've taken 90% of them, and kept 10% of my interpretations. You solved me some puzzles!

    An update to my take on this one:

    The Matter With Her

    Super-sister understands
    Only makes this wonder-man
    Try to be who you can be, but share it with me some
    Wonder-worlds and daydream-land
    She took my wheel in hand
    And held it for a while, but then she took a fall

    She mesmerized us all
    She took our guilt upon herself and (broke?)

    I didn’t know
    I didn’t see
    That the matter with her was

    She soldiered on while we still slaved
    Back while the road was truly paved
    With good intentions by a (hard to beg?) for a ride
    No one really asked for it
    I couldn't blame myself one bit
    I didn't know ... what I thought
    Oblivious to the fall

    She mesmerized us all
    She took our guilt upon herself and (broke?)

    I didn't know
    I didn't see
    That the matter with her was me

    (chorus x2)

    Update to my take on Cutie in Decay, not perfect, but I think this makes more sense:

    Cutie in Decay (No Parachute)

    He pulled his pants down in despair
    Checked to see if all was there
    He felt so neutered by those words
    Maybe maybe he misheard

    He knew he wouldn’t be/feel no way so much scorn [yes, scorn]
    But then one day the blinds were drawn

    The storm in zenit was so true (??)
    It doesn't matter what you do
    The man said it’s all in your head
    And if you wake up then you’re dead

    Shield your eyes
    This cutie in decay understand, but look away
    In the end it doesn’t matter anyway

    It's all meaningless,
    effervescent, don't make sense
    .... selfish hollow caress
    When you wake/wait you ....

    And when the circus tent's in town
    They build you up and they tear you down
    And nothing lasts (on overpay?)
    At least you get to do it again in a day

    Shield your soul
    Make sure you leave (unscathed?)
    You don't drown, you just (stale?)
    .... remember just how beautifully you ....

    So take(?) your senses, please calm down
    .... is gruesome everywhere
    It doesn’t matter what you do
    In the end it all comes home to you

    So dream sweet dreams for everyone
    (...)
    (...)
    .... ever sing a song
    (... dream their dreams for you ...)
    (... wake up ...)
