about

The Clowns Switzerland

No buckets of confetti, no juggling, no jokes!
These clowns were on a different mission: Soul music with a Punk attitude!
They fight the dulling effects of the mainstream machinery with nothing but the sword of Soul music, the axe of Rock'n'Roll, the shield of a Punk attitude ... and lots and lots of make up!

The band may have died in 2012 but the music shall live on forvever ;)

Track Name: Hidden Agenda
I’ve got no evidence and no proof
and yet I sing this song
With a notion that something is terribly wrong

I take a long hard look at you
Trying to see and to understand
I’m kind of pretty sure that you,
In the back of your mind, have some kind of plan

Yes you do, yes you do – Oh, yes you do!
Hidden agenda of your soul

You never tell me anything
You never really take a stand
This conversation here is dead
This whole damn thing’s gotten out of hand

Oh yeah, Oh yeah - it’s out of control!
Hidden agenda of your soul
Track Name: Exciting Times I
EXCITING!!! Exciting times - we live in!
We! Live in! Exciting Times!
Track Name: Manic Depression
Manic depression is touching my soul
I know what I want but I just don't know
How to, go about gettin' it
Feeling sweet feeling,
Drops from my fingers, fingers
Manic depression is catchin' my soul

Woman so weary, the sweet cause in vain
You make love, you break love
It's all the same
When it's, when it's over, mama
Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess

Well, I think I'll go turn myself off,
And go on down
All the way down
Really ain't no use in me hanging around
In your kinda scene

Music, sweet music
I wish I could caress, caress, caress
Manic depression is a frustrating mess
Track Name: Exciting Times II
Exciting Times! We live in.
Track Name: Devil & Demon
There’s a devil inside my computer
There’s a demon inside my TV
They are lurking and calling my name
They are screaming that they want to see me
Their voices cut deep into my mind
And make me give up most of my time
I punish myself with contempt
for not being a bit more resistant

Hail the remote control!
Flip the channels you’re on patrol:
From clip to clip and show to show!
You won’t stop till the morning dawns and guilt finally overcomes

Hail! Hail remote control!
Flip the channels you’re on patrol:
From clip to clip and show to show!
You won’t stop - till - the - morning - dawns - and ...
Ohh Lord!

Praise the enter button,
download that shit, password’s forgotten
Surf the bit wave, all or nothing
You won’t stop till the morning dawns and guilt finally overcomes!

Praise the enter button, download that shit, password’s forgotten
Surf the bit wave, all or nothing
You won’t stop – till - the - morning - dawns and
Guilt finally - overcomes and - it’s coming, it’s coming – oh! For sure it’s coming!

Go down, go down, go down, to the bottom of your heart
Take a good look around, make a brand new start

Devil – calling my name.
Demon – is doing the same.
Track Name: Exciting Times III
Exciting Times!
Track Name: In The Gutter
You and me, me and you ...
We never really had a chance to come through
Comunication died on the mediators couch
It went down the drain from there on out

Lets try harder not to fail, yes we owe it to ourselves, and we owe it to L.

We can keep on hurting eachother
Seems that we like it down here in the gutter
We bite, we fight, we pinch and we sting
But maybe it is time for some understanding

Lets try harder not to fail, yes we owe it to ourselves and we owe it to L.


Lets try harder not to fail, yes we owe it to ourselves and we owe it to L.
Now I can’t make it on my own, yes I need you to be strong, come on baby, come on! Come on!

Come on, baby!

Was it love, was it excitement or was it confusion?
All we know is, in the end it was disillusion
I never really thought this could happen to me
But I learnd that sometimes 1 and 1 makes 3
Track Name: Exciting Times IIII
Exciting Times! We live in!
It could be so much better.
It could be so much worse.
Yeah - yeah - yeah
Exciting Times! We live in! Yes we do.
Track Name: Female Kryptonite
When I know you're in the room
all of a sudden I lose my cool - I realize I'm doomed.
The Devil's inside of me can't you see
my ability to dance somehow leaves me completely
Of course I know this is all in my head
I should stop worrying and start enjoying myself instead
I try too hard to make sense and be funny
run out of words, make everything worse,
somebody kill me please!

There is something about you
that turns me into a fool
Something ain't quiet right
you must be female kryptonite

And I know that it's not true
but I make myself believe that I'm in love with you

It's only half a man what you see
Intimidated by your kind - oh baby that's not me
There's a smile so encouraging
But all I can return is a frozen grin
There's a thought that makes me freak
It's that maybe you're just out of my league
I know I gotta stop thinking like this
Or I'm never gonna make it, to get that kiss

There is something about you
that turns me into a fool
Something ain't quiet right
you must be female kryptonite

Oooh-­‐oohh-­‐ooh-­‐oooh
Female kryptonite
 
You give me a smile so encouraging
All I can return is a frozen grin
I’ve got to stop thinking like this
Or I’ll never gonna make it to get that kiss!
