Ibuprofen 02:33
Last night I tripped and I fell Chasing my dreams Now I’m infusing my blood With Ibuprofen Dissolve and take the pain away Dissolve and take the pain away Some pills will get you revved up And some help you sleep But if you wanna feel OK It’s Ibuprofen Dissolve and take the pain away Dissolve and take the pain away Dissolve and take the pain away Dissolve and take the pain away They say I’m a junkie But what am I supposed to do When for all the world’s discomfort The perfect cure awaits in the shape of you Yea, I know that I’m broken, I know that I’m soft But that’s show-biz, babe, you go down, you get up Yea, I know that I’m broken, I know that I’m soft But that’s show-biz, babe, you go down, you get up

Legal Tender 03:12
[Verse 1] Not here for the money Just in it for the blood In it to get fucked up Maybe to play a little rock and roll I'm here for the good vibes And not for paper planes [Pre-Chorus] If you wanna do this right You gotta leave this shit behind [Chorus] All my pockets full of holes But does it change a thing if they are never full? Legal tender is just a hoax I've become a socialist 'cause I'm chronically broke [Verse 2] I'm here for a reason Wanna stick it to the man You can throw your rocks I keep playing in a rock'n'roll band I'm here for a good time And not to pay the bills [Pre-Chorus] If you wanna do this right You gotta leave this shit behind [Chorus] All my pockets full of holes But does it change a thing if they are never full? Legal tender is just a hoax I've become a socialist 'cause I'm chronically broke [Chorus] All my pockets full of holes But does it change a thing if they are never full? Legal tender is just a hoax I've become a socialist 'cause I'm chronically broke [Post-Chorus/Outro] Chronically broke (I am broke) Chronically broke (You are broke) Chronically broke (He is broke) Chronically broke (She is broke) Chronically broke (They are broke) Chronically broke (We are broke)

Skyline 03:06
This city’s got no skyline This city is a tourist-trap A homeless man holds the door to a bank for cash This city wishes it was dead And if this is gonna be the end I hope that all the money was well spent This city’s no place for losers like us This city’s no place for losers like us This city is a shit-hole Made of trash and neon-glow All the way home she pretends that she’s on her phone This city wants us to fuck off And if this is gonna be the end I hope that all the money was well spent This city’s no place for losers like us This city’s no place for losers like us This city’s no place for losers like us This city’s no place for losers like us This city is not for you and me - It’s just styrofoam walls and plastic trees It’s just minimum wage and make-believe This city’s not for you

Hell 03:20
[Verse 1] You're on the lowest level You've watched it burn Gave everything to the devil Got nothing in return [Pre-Chorus] Left you out in the cold Divine comedy-gold It's never going to end And it won't get any better, they just don't understand [Chorus] I wanna get to you But it's a long way down and a hard way through You wanna hide in the shade You got a one-way ticket to hell and stayed [Verse 2] Everything's just borrowed Eagles becoming vultures Un trato con el diablo No tienes nada de vuelta [Pre-Chorus] Left you out in the cold Divine comedy-gold It's never going to end And it won't get any better, they just don't understand [Chorus] I wanna get to you But it's a long way down and a hard way through You wanna hide in the shade You got a one-way ticket to hell and stayed One-way ticket to hell and stayed One-way ticket to hell [Bridge] „How are you doing?“, yeah, doing just fine Took a vacation from the borderline They wanna treat you, yeah, treat you so good But they don't know how [Pre-Chorus] Left you out in the cold Divine comedy-gold It's never going to end And it won't get any better, they just don't understand [Chorus] I wanna get to you But it's a long way down and a hard way through You wanna hide in the shade You got a one-way ticket to hell and stayed One-way ticket to hell and stayed One-way ticket to hell

[Verse 1] I feel whole again, I feel like half a man I've been struggling, puppet on a string I'm directionless, that's my manifest At my fingertips, my apocalypse [Chorus] Everyday I'm awake I'm your greatest mistake Always wanted a man, this boy is all you get [Verse 2] One more and i quit, I'm a whiny simp Don't know what to do, but I don't wanna be like you [Chorus] Everyday I'm awake I'm your greatest mistake Always wanted a man, this boy is all you get [Bridge] Yeah, here comes the same shit all over again Yeah, here comes the same shit all over again Yeah, here comes the same shit The same Just a part I'm playing I feel this hole again, I feel like half a man Not who I'm supposed to be, who needs someone like me [Outro] Everyday I'm awake I'm your greatest mistake Always wanted a man This boy is all you get This boy is all you get This boy is all you get This boy is all you get Just a part I'm playing

This is the second full-length album by PABST.
Compared to 2018’s “Chlorine” DEUCE EX MACHINA, with its more focussed and tight production by none other than “Germany’s Steve Albini” Moses Schneider (Kreator, Beatsteaks, Tocotronic), appears like a handsome devil. In addition to their newly found poignancy, the 11 tracks - all recorded in two live-sessions - come in more raw and restless and during their runtime submerge the listener fully with almost no respite. The guitars and drums on most songs have been dialed into squealing, feedbacking overload, making for an adventurous lo-fi, and artifact-laden sonic pallet - prime examples being the singles “Ibuprofen” and “Skyline”. But whether they overhaul the Scandinavian Punk’n’Roll of the naughties in “Legal Tender”, or gallop through the dryest concrete-desert-riffage imaginable in the aptly titled “Hell”, PABST never neglect these catchy, tenacious hook lines that have always been crucial to their work.
