Part I: Ten days in July. The three of us ; All I know is that we are rich ; I will tell you the truth -- Part II: The city of the damned. The machine and the abyss ; A kiss goodbye ; This is the knife ; Chronicles of disorder ; Here goes nothing -- Part III: These tender times. Cover her face ; The boys springing up amongst us ; It is all over now ; Box him up -- Part IV: The murderers' paradise. Those that know not what they do ; To have you home again ; In the plastic stage -- Part V: With trumpets and sound of cornet. Smooth in the morning light ; Such a hell of a noise
