In November 2011, their second album „Walrus“ was released on the Berlin label staatsakt. Hans Unstern and Dirk von Lowtzow ( Tocotronic ) were co-producers. Moses Schneider designed the sound. The release was followed by a tour in Germany, Austria and Switzerland with two additional musicians (Simon Bauer & Hans Unstern), who played contrabass, organs and keyboards. Their self-made video for the single „Try“ won the third MuVi prize of „Internationale Kurzfilmtage Oberhausen“. In 2012 Jolly Goods played concerts in Canada and the USA.

Lyrics

  • Eating Fries (Slowlife)

    Eating fries
    Late at night
    I left the party
    Early on
    Who should I talk to
    If I don’t want to hear myself

    Eating fries
    At midnight
    In my four walls
    I listen to the sounds
    That the fries make in my mouth
    I’m not going out ever again

    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy

    All the time you did not know
    People come and people go
    Clinking glasses, dancing feet
    All but without me

    Right after you said hi
    I decided I’d rather stay
    Home alone
    I don’t wanna see your new life

    It’s sucking all my energy
    You are so much stronger than me
    It’s sucking all my energy
    You are so much smarter than me

    Eating fries
    Late at night
    I left the party
    Early on
    Who should I talk to
    If I don’t want to hear myself

    Eating fries
    At midnight
    In my four walls
    I listen to the sounds
    that the cats make while I moan

    I’m not going out ever again

    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy
    It’s sucking all my energy
    Self-hate is sucking all the energy
    Self-hate is sucking all the energy
    Self-hate is sucking all the energy
    Self-hate is sucking all the energy

  • If I Were A Woman (Walrus)

    I’d touch myself where the raindrops miss
    If I were a woman
    If I were a full moon night
    I’d drop my strawberry juice forever on your face

    There are two lines
    Floating down
    And these two lines
    Will never meet at
    Any time

    All I know is that I
    Wish I was a walrus
    A Walrus

    I meet myself in a photograph
    Like I was a prophet
    With a balloon next to my mouth
    It says: When i grow up I wanna be a backstreet boy

    There is a thin line
    A tightrope walk
    And this thin line
    Will always cut your feet

    All I know is that I
    Wish I was a walrus
    A Walrus

    Nearly puking all the lonely
    days out

    Yes I do hate
    Everything around me
    Yes I do hate
    Everything around me

  • The Trees (Walrus)

    There was nobody
    In the trees where you left me
    Coated in morning dew
    I strangled and stretched
    Pelting mountains

    And I wonder, I wonder, I wonder
    Do you feel good now
    For the first time in your life

    You could love anybody instead of me
    It’s a stupid accident
    I could love anybody instead of you
    I don’t believe in love
    And that’s my cure

    There was nobody
    In the trees where you left me
    Bound in golden phantoms
    That flatter
    And replace you

    Underneath the moon
    I was breaking the beauty
    I started to distrust it
    Growing leg hair, drinking my period blood

    Go under, go under, go under
    From the cradle to the casket
    Love tortures you

    I could fuck anybody
    Instead of me
    Under the trees
    I don’t believe in love
    And that’s my cure

    I’m a free walrus again
    Floating on the ice flow
    Captain of the universe
    That you build
    And I constantly
    Destroy

    Burn the forests down
    Burn the forests down
    Burn the forests down
    Burn

  • Sad Side Of The Tongue (Walrus)

    On the sad side of the tongue
    I feel nothing but numb
    On the sad side of the tongue
    I feel nothing but numb

    Factory of tears
    Factory of fears

    Lay with me
    Loose your fear
    Lay with me
    Breathe your tears

    On the lazy side of the moon
    We slip into foreign shoes
    Walking on forgotten lakes
    With no cause to be awake

    Factory of tears
    Factory of fears

    Lay with me
    Loose your fear
    Lay with me
    Breathe your tears

    On the sad side of the tongue
    I feel nothing but numb
    On the sad side of the tongue
    I feel nothing but numb

  • Winterbones (Walrus)

    Winterbones
    Frozen bones
    Break the ice
    Nowhere
    Nowhere
    Is my home

    Crashes and crannies are cold
    Pillows and candles are cold
    Crashes and crannies are cold
    Pillows and candles are cold

    We are not what we want to be
    Wearenotwhatwewanttobe

    Light creatures
    Freeze to the bones
    Hands crippled to stone
    Breaking the core
    Stroke it off my shoes

    Crashes and crannies are cold
    Pillows and candles are cold
    Crashes and crannies are cold
    Pillows and candles are cold

    We are not what we want to be
    Wearenotwhatwewanttobe

  • The Lines (Walrus)

    I can read between the lines
    You hate yourself all the time

    Do nothing all day long
    Do nothing all my life
    Do nothing go on and on
    It’s a short life
    Hi, I’m gone

    I can read between the lines
    I rewrite my words never on time

    Do nothing all day long
    Do nothing all my life
    Do nothing go on and on
    It’s a short life
    Hi, I’m gone

  • Try (Walrus)

    Try
    Don’t ever try
    To change your life

    Stick to your sleepy heart
    Leave them
    Leave them all behind

    Don’t change your ways
    Don’t change your life

    Try
    Don’t ever try
    To change your life

    Stick to your rusty heart
    Let them have their insights

    Don’t change your ways
    Don’t change your life

    Try
    Don’t ever try
    To change your life

    Stick to your sleepy heart
    Leave them
    Leave them all behind

    Don’t change your ways
    Don’t change your life

  • Any Trays (Walrus)

    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Any trays

    Crawl up in holes
    Hide what I know
    Feelings that are there
    I don’t care
    What I’ve seen
    Some unbearable things
    Smiling at your grin
    Piling self-hate within

    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Any trays

    The laughter on the plate
    The thunder of a fake
    Gulp down and cry
    For more beautiful crimes

    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Are there any trays of consciousness left
    In my holy brain
    Any trays

    From one illusion to the next one
    Lalalalala
    From one illusion to the next one
    Lalalalala
    It doesn’t really matter what you do
    Your illusions they feed you
    It doesn’t really matter what you do
    Your illusions they eat you
    It doesn’t really matter what you do
    Your illusion they need you

  • Travel (Walrus)

    Travel with your ghost
    On a lonesome street
    Cry for something new
    Cry for fire
    In fingers and moves

    Winter’s turning into autumn
    Hey hey my cells will be free free from rules
    There’s a plant in your head that gets no water
    Cause they they they throw stones in your earholes

    Travel with your ghost
    On a tired street
    Cry for something new
    Cry for fire
    In fingers and moves

    Winter’s turning into autumn
    I killed the bear to have a company
    And the ghost it luckily swallowed me
    Into a wagon with broken wheels
    Embrace all that you fear

    Travel with your ghost
    On a tired street
    Cry for something new
    Cry for fire
    In fingers and moves

    Winter’s turning into autumn
    We’re swimming in noise oceans
    I can’t help my notion
    I have to walk with
    Have to walk with
    Have to walk
    With my ghost
    With my ghost

  • Black (Walrus)

    Destroying symphonies
    Betraying harmonies
    It is a part of me
    It is a part of me

    If I could ever ever make the strings unwind
    I’d bend the silence
    Through the night
    Through the night

    When the mind turns bright and dies down
    All my screams turn
    Black, black
    Shoot, shoot
    Shoot in your head

    Rejecting company
    Repeating strategys
    It is a part of me
    It is a part of me

    For every word that went too far into my way
    I pinch pins deep into my flesh
    Squeezing out
    Hollowness

    When the mind turns bright and dies down
    All my screams turn
    Black, black
    Shoot, Shoot
    Shoot in your head

    With ghost notes in my coat and hope all choked
    Insignificance is humming rope
    Through the night
    Through the night

    The innocence is over
    The heart still hums
    Angel hyms rising
    The beat is gone
    Hearts are wrong
    Hearts are wrong
    Breaths falling silent
    The black heart lingers on

  • Failure (Walrus)

    My heart
    It is swimming in the glass
    You drained
    The second I wait for
    Never comes around
    In my room at night
    Breathing air
    Is what I like
    Is what i like

    I’ve overcome my fear
    I sang straight into your ear
    Let me, let me, let me
    Let me be your home
    All you need, All you need

    I am a failure
    Always underwater
    Falling in love with strangers
    Never arriving
    Never arriving

    I’ve overcome my fear
    I sang straight into your ear
    Let me, let me, let me
    Let me be your home
    All you need, All you need

  • Thanks For Your Tip (Walrus)

    Thanks for your tip
    But scratching my wounds doesn’t feel good
    Turn pages back and erase them
    A head so empty
    I know what you feel

    I like the way you spit out words
    I like the room sizzling through your mind
    Roses and amonia
    And they way our heads
    Droop like lilacs

    Your eyes
    Are stars
    In my dark mind
    Try to balance my brain
    But the days are meteorites
    I need
    Slow motion
    I fast forward and I die
    It bores my mind

    Thanks for your tip
    But I forgot to forget
    Don’t forget to forget
    Frantic thoughts come back
    A head overflowing
    And I want to forgot
    I want to forget
    But they keep coming back
    They keep coming back

    I like the way you don’t know the names
    I like the way you black out your mind
    Roses and amonia
    And they way our heads
    Droop like lilacs

    Your eyes
    Are stars
    In my dark mind
    Try to balance my brain
    But the days are meteorites
    I need
    Slow motion
    I fast forward and I die
    It bores my mind

  • Freight Train (Elizabeth Cotten Cover) (Walrus)

    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Please don’t tell what train I’m on
    So they won’t know what route I’m on

    When I’m dead
    And in my grave
    No more good times
    Here I crave
    Place the stones
    At my head and feet
    Tell them all
    I’ve gone to sleep

    When I die
    Lord, bury me deep
    Way down on old Chestnut Street
    There I can hear old Number nine
    As she comes on rolling by

    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Please don’t tell what train I’m on
    So they won’t know what route I’ve gone

    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Freight Train Freight Train
    Run so fast
    Please don’t tell what train I’m on
    So they won’t know what route I’m on
