There are men that make you sad and men that make you mad those men you got over  not the ones you did not understand You say you have been had that you’ve been tricked so bad those days are over this time you say you’ll make a stand (CHORUS) She’ll tell you outright that she pulls your heart out and you will blown, for sure to smithereens not what you had in mind, now did you if you’re lucky she’ll abuse you if not humiliate you most likely she will cry don’t ask me why and then she’ll shout hysterically until there’s nothing nothing left of you and me ‘I love you too’, is what you said Another lie that got me mad More hopes got shattered I should have passed on him instead 'Better loved and lost', they said Or it will hurt until you’re dead those days are over this time I know I’ll make a stand
(Verse 1) It has been a while, I know that I saw you here You can tell me if I’m wrong but have you dyed your hair? (Interlude 1) I saw your eyes, the were ferocious If looks could kill then I’d be gone I didn’t know you’d been so hopeless I must admit that I moved on (Verse 2) Do you know where I went wrong ‘cause I’m not that sure You said you wanted to be strong Said you would endure (Interlude 2) The moment you knew me well I got slightly disappointed The moment that I could tell You got slightly disappointed She’s coming along (3x) (Verse 1) I think you understood me wrong ‘cause I don’t lie that much Didn’t want to cause you harm I was surprised it hurt that much I think you understood me wrong
Limpy Jack has dancing shoes to spare and he is painfully aware that he is making a fool of himself ‘cause everyone stares while no-one dares to come on the dance floor so Jack remains a one-man show you have to give it to him nowbody wants to join in don’t know what’s more pathetic a limb that is prosthetic or Limpy Jack that turns around (2x)
Who will survive the Apocalypse (guess why) (3x) Who will survive, who will survive No, the zombies won’t (guess why) (4x) Oh, we won’t make it Who will survive the Apocalypse (guess why) (3x) Who will survive, who will survive
(Verse) So glad that you confessed (you know) Our God will do the rest (you know) You won’t feel the pain (you know) It’s not that we’re insane (you know) It's all for the best (you know) Our God will do the rest (you know) James Foley, Ali Al-Sayyed, Steven Sotloff, Haruna Yukawa, David Haines, Alan Henning, Peter Kassig, Hervé Gourdel, Kenji Goto, Abbas Medlej, Hujam Surchi And the list goes on and on... (Verse)
All right, Girl it’s you that ride along no seat belts this ride is for the brave and strong but then the turn goes wrong so wrong Too bad, Girl this ride did not take long had fun though until that very turn went wrong how could that turn go wrong? so wrong My bad, Girl you only left the door slick driving is what your parents hate me for too bad you are no more no more So sad Girl once again I’m on the run they blame me for all the evil things I’ve done such bad can’t be undone undone
I’m late for work That wouldn’t be too bad if I wasn’t a fire fighter Everyone goes beserk Now that wouldn’t be too bad if this fire wasn’t getting brighter (CHORUS) Who puts the fire out? (get the hose, and aim for the flame) That red axe is oversized now every door - or what’s behind - will be chopped into a thousand pieces if the kid is carbonized then I leave him be and take care of me before the temp increases (CHORUS)
Twins, are most likely to win a lookalike contest (don’t have to tell you why) But Siamese Twins, are least likely to take their loneliness serious (don’t have to tell you why) (CHORUS) Hey (yes, you are) Am I stating the obvious? (2x) Friends, are not likely to be among your enemies (don’t have to tell you why) And if your enemy wins, you are not likely to celebrate his victory (don’t have to tell you why) (CHORUS)
(Verse 1) Friday night, the night was young Had to score at least one more hit When we fight, we show that we’re strong The hurt, well they deserve every bit (Verse 2) You were right and I was wrong Should have been the first to admit I denied, you knew all along Getting us into all this shit (CHORUS) Out goes the light This party is over The crowd goes quiet The bouncer moves over (2x) (Verse 2)
(Verse 1) You have been a beauty queen you have been But beauty runs skin-deep you knew that Eyes green, emerald-like green (Verse 2) Your skin has been slowly wrinkling it has Cosmetics A major spending they have (CHORUS) Eyes green, emerald-like green Eyes green, emerald-like green (Verse 1) (CHORUS 2x)
(Verse 1) When the girls go out you have to stay behind When the girls go out you’re on your own (Verse2) When the girls go out it’s a girl’s-only night When the girls go out you’re on your own (Chorus) they smile, they shout they drink, they laugh they talk they dance then fall in love they cry, they grin they don’t ask much but once exposed you have to touch Girls’ night out (2x) (Verse 1) (Verse 2) (Chorus)
Three Times Hooray, Another crony left the bank Resilient as he is Three Times Hooray, And all that’s left is empty hands As empty as our heads Allow me to explain I don’t know what I sell You’ll be broke, I can tell High frequency trading (2x) If your morals fade then more money is made High frequency trading (2x) Three Times Hooray, Buy in September, sell in May It’s easy if you know Three Times Hooray, The Fed Reserve has almost tanked While the worst is yet to come
I take a bow before we begin and take your hand, resistance is futile You turn around, prepare for a spin With every move I pull you closer This song is loud, this crowd is a sin We dim the lights, the basses keep pumpin’ No standers-by, the floor is filled-in Let’s reconcile these beats with somethin’ (CHORUS) On da floor On da floor On da floor On da floor (4x) (INTERLUDE) Guy: Common Harry, get that body on the dance floor Harry: No man, I don’t really feel like dancing today Guy: Oh, common Harry, don’t be like that, it’ll be fun, you’ll see! Harry: Seriously man, I’d rather stay here on the side, okay? Guy: Now Harry, if you want me to, I can lead... Harry: It’s not that man, I just had too much of a drink Guy: Oh common, Harry, this party is almost over Harry: No, I really don’t want to man, I’m more into other kinds of music, like Reggae or something Choir: Reggae! Harry: Oh shit...
Last thing I saw is the rainfall


Songs about sociopathic firefighters, ridiculed amputees or religious fanatics aren't readily encountered in the habitual album. Electric Polygraphs is a surrealistic band that does exactly that in their debut album. Get ready for a mix of electro-pop with an eighties flavour.

Electric Polygraphs is a band from Brussels, Belgium. For undisclosed reasons, they are unable to perform live and as such write, perform and record their music from their private studio exclusively.
Thematically, most songs are as mundane as they come, but occasionally a more twisted topic will arise. This is to be expected, as Belgians are fond of surrealism and unconventional weirdness.
