Cindi 02:58
So hot The metal at your hips is glowing Careful your true colors are showing The hell you left behind, Is it yours, or is it mine? You get no points for bad behavior But this gutter suits me fine Bring me home Hell of a way to make a living Tossing and turning every night There’s gotta be more than this Than battered walls and bleeding fists Just cuz you can’t win Doesn’t mean that you can’t fight Until the end of the world You beat me senseless in the street I was kicking against the pricks I got people I wanna meet And everything went wrong And everything went red I got your hand inside my hand And that voice inside my head I said yeah Yeah Yeah

Centipede 03:46
Fragile yet agile, I watch you skitter Every bitter note every broken tone You left a stain the size of Manila You didn’t notice ‘till the plane back home No well too deep That you can’t dig that hole Take these neon dreams I watched you crawl across the ceiling A sweating shadow with a soul The spirit’s hungry and it’s willing But the flesh won't leave it well alone No well too deep That you can’t dig that hole Take these neon dreams You see that humble caterpillar Reveals herself a centipede You watch that last step, it’s a killer You just won't notice until you start to bleed No well too deep That you can’t dig that hole Take these neon dreams

I’m afraid Just enough to bare my teeth You got that rage Days planning my defeat It’s not about the way you walk It’s the fine, fine line between between a buzzard and hawk You take me down to place Where the wolves... You got that way Of dropping me to my knees Wanna play? Top down, chin up, don’t let them see your disease You fake it just to make it ‘till the wheels come off Crying so hard, they say you gone soft You take me down to place Where we all... DIE LIKE DOGS Clear the room! You know it didn’t have to go down this way Oh I know! It’s the smile that gives it away Poor put-upon girl, poor little rich boy Thinking you’re a player with a new set of toys Take me down to that place Where we all...

Moonlight 03:26
It’s that New England cold that rattles your bones I don’t care if you love me, I just can’t be alone You chose me to suffer, I chose to get stoned I crack in the moonlight, A witness, a witness It’s the psychopomp whisper The garden of death The dreams of distortion Every night in your bed The circuits keep humming The lights growing red The welcome distraction From the ringing, the ringing I’m calling on the omniphone Calling but you’re not home Well you think you’re hot shit When you busted my lip? You wanna transform? Try to be dead for a bit You go pale as a ghost You ride the moon like a witch You got a mean sense of humor Keep laughing, keep laughing Nowhere to hide That tired refrain I’m not trying to be stubborn I’m just trying to stay sane You kicked me so hard I blacked out from the pain I woke in the moonlight But I ain’t the same I’m calling on the omniphone Calling but you’re not home

B.D.F. 02:33
I’m nostalgic for a hangover It don’t have to feel good, it just has to feel earned I hate B.D.F. You give me a headache like a bulldozer It don’t need to feel good, it just has to feel earned Bob and Grant sing “dű you remember?” I didn’t know what to say, I didn’t know what to say I hate B.D.F.

King coward and the queen of thieves Robbed us blind, stole the keys Took my face, took my name Left me guessing about the way Well I never heard of a getaway But if I don’t survive, then this place wasn’t safe Well the lines were tapped and the wires got crossed And the heat, and the heat, and the heat was on Well I found you on the casting couch I wasn’t looking for love, just wanna find a way out Out of my skin, well the boys gotta swing Just give me a box under my feet Another terror, eternal, another relief You got the widest eyes that I ever seen You got the beauty and brains and the heart of a beast Well you know you gotta smile if you wanna succeed Well who’s gonna shelter me? When it’s there for the world to see? Well who’s gonna shelter me? From the, from the consequences? It’s a cold night, a cold night, a cold night (in sanctuary city)

Shake 02:36
Oo, you got a lotta nerve You say I’m worth nothing, it’s what I deserve? Well I’d rather be a lion laying in wait Than a lamb laying under the knife You think you bought a place in my bed? Just 'cause you smoked the brains from your head Just ‘cause you want it, just ‘cause you want it Want it tonight SHAKE You neon ugly machine A little bit faded, a little unclean But I’d rather be a plot, forget me not A line in the sand for what you’ve got You think you got it down by your feet Looking for something mean and elite Well I know that you want it, know that you want it Want it from me SHAKE It’s a dry deserted place Looking for a pretty face Ready for the malice Ready to be replaced

Black Books 04:18

Never thought I’d hold a gun, Now it's in my hands Thought it’d feel like rolling thunder Hot death on my command Instead it feels like acid rain Falling on us all the same Calling the reckless and ready By their names I didn’t know a good night’s sleep 'till I went straight Slept in bathtubs and on balconies Anywhere I was out of the rain No one to point the finger All power, no restraint I knew the reckless and ready By their names Oh, Will someone just let me in? Oh, You got off easy When they told you to hit the floor You were the first one out that door Now you can’t stop running anymore I didn’t fight the rising tide ‘till i got made Listless in my luxury I didn’t see a reason to stay I felt just like a vampire Thirsty for the light of day Calling the reckless and ready By their names Oh, Will someone just let me in? Oh, You got off easy When they told you to hit the floor You were the first one out that door Now you can’t stop running anymore I called out all the cowards in this place I woke up hours later, Dried blood all on my face I dreamed I was a bullfighter But you were there in my way Saying be reckless, but be ready All the same
