BURDEN

Okay now, lets get this off my chest. We've made a burden for my travel. You pulled my down into your deepest depths, should've left me on the calm cold surface. You know you make my soul scream. Will I ever survive? These burdens take away from my dreams. Voices calling out from the dark. The night is an allusion for the lonesome. Have patience for once and find some for yourself. Unless the higher feeling takes over. You know you make my soul scream. Will I ever arrive? Or will these screams define my dreams? Own a beginning, the ending's where I lack, mmm soft killer of the in between. Strapped for strength, I'll find my way back. At least this time I came clean. You know you make my soul scream. will i ever survive? These burdens take away from my dreams. These burdens, they take away from my dreams.

Blue-Collar sex Kitten

It was awkward like F minor the first time I saw you naked. Thought you found Jesus in me while I lied there faking. You told your mama I was coming late again again again again. My brain has a mind of its own, I don't know which way it goes. Party humor, be my human, be my savior, laugh at my jokes, I've been on good behavior. May seem filthy, sister calls me a little brother, dirty dancing is my Mexico fun. I'm a dyke, dates guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe. You should let me cut your hair to make you look a little better. They'll be barking up your tree Mary, Allison, and Heather. Oh be my friend or hate my guts, it doesn't matter, we're all fucked. My brain has a mind of its own, I don't know which way it goes. I was California dreaming, American dream's deceiving, East coast leaving, weekend heathen. Contemplation, admiration, salivation, masturbation : four - step Friday night. I'm a dyke, dated guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe. I ain't the man I could have been on the East Coast. I ain't the man i should have been on the East Coast. I am the man I could have been on the East Coast. I ain't the man I should have been on the East Coast. I am the man I could've been. Burned bridge builder, got thrown off kilter, brightened up my filter, so I wouldn't kill her, or be sadistic, by those ballistic, or become a statistic! I'm a dyke, dated guys, ain't a crime, won't apologize for my tribe.

did i offend you

Did I offend you? I was only playing games. We could start from the top and tear it down again. You were appointed the master of control. It won't give you self control, you're only getting older. you're only getting older. is this the part where you stumble in? You're only breaking down again. Only fools will let crows win. You're only breaking down. you're only breaking down. Running with the masses, you're only getting fatter and paid. Souls are what could break, your skin is only walls for some odd days. Is this the part where you stumble in? You're only breaking down again. Only fools will let crows win. You're only breaking down. you're only breaking down. Creeps on the other side, don't let them tell you what to find. Keep them where they lie. Keep them there. Keep them out of mind. Is this the part where you stumble in? You're only breaking down again. And only fools will let crows win. You're only breaking down. you're only breaking down. you're only breaking down. you're only breaking down.

HEART IN THE STATES

There’s a heart in the states that beats for your embrace, just to be in the grace of your negative space. I tell it not to be so damn naive. But when my brain agrees, oh, you better believe it's not lust, it's need. And when I try to swallow the feeling devours me. It's not lust it's need. There's no heart in my place I have no breathing space. Took the flower from the vase, left the vase incase. I will catch my breath along with your caress. I'll wear that yellow dress till there’s nothing left. 1-2-3-4. I don't care if I'm alone. Your shadow don’t haunt me no more. You were the calm before my storm. You will be forevermore. Forevermore. Forevermore.

I Feel Cool

Didn't think you'd take my story and throw it in my face. That's a real nice way to throw me away. Don't you even worry, I didn't really need a friend. I was just pretending to be lonely. The jokes on you. How do you feel? I feel cool. Those butterflies were so bubblegum, the only thing you knew to make my feet go numb. This aint a love song. No, you don't deserve one. How did you feel with your hands up in the clouds? What did you have when you brought them down? Hopefully something accountable. I swallowed your knife. Won't be feeding the fear in my new life. My instincts are so much better than yours. My windows are open and you've closed all your doors. Oh, how time flew. I can't recall when I thought you were cool. Now those butterflies all seem bubblegum, the only thing you knew to make my feet go numb. This ain't a love song. No, you don't deserve one. How did you feel with your hands up in the clouds? What did you have when you brought them down? Hopefully something worthwhile.

Make Love To Myself

Buddy, I don't need you I can make love to myself. If you think I'm lonesome then you're lying to yourself. Cause I'ma something else and you're a renegade. Don't even talk to me. Find pleasures more deep cause my skin ain't yours to keep. You may only kiss the waves that radiate from my brain. Cause I'ma something good and you're a bad seed. Don't even look at me. I am not your honey. I don't need nobody for nothing. Got myself for loving. Got myself for loving. You may think I'm yummy but that don't mean nothing. I'm just savory and you are a factory boy. I'm the real McCoy. You're just a broken toy. I am not your honey. I don't need nobody for nothing. I've got myself for loving. I've got myself for loving. I am not your honey and I don't need nobody for nothing, no. I've got myself for loving and I don't need nobody.

Sheet Stains

Sheet stains, giving me stomach pains. Right now I am all alone - didn't make this mess on my own though. Your thighs, making me fantasize. I found your panties on laundry day - can I get a break? Sheet stains. Bad idea, going out without you my dear. When all the fishes wanna piece of me I play dead in the sea. I want you to come home to take me out, to take me back home. Seventeen sleeps till you and me. Ya makin' my heart feel weak, oh seventeen sleeps. Sheet stains. Sheet stains. "Ooh and ahh" my favorite line you sings. Got me salivatin' like Pavlov's dog every time I hear your belle ring. I want you to come home to take me out, to take me back home. Seventeen sleeps till you and me. Ya makin' my heart feel weak, oh seventeen sleeps. Seventeen sleeps till you and me. Ya makin' my heart feel weak, oh seventeen sleeps. Sheet stains. Sheet stains. Sheet stains. Sheet stains.Went to a party on a Saturday night. Everybody ask me where you were I said "alright". I said "okay yeah yeah alright!" Sheet stains. Sheet stains. Sheet stains. Sheet stains.

Sideways

I can't help the way I want. I was born on a Friday. Need new air in my lungs. Lovin' me a good sideways. My disciples are only happy when I'm leading. Saying "it's too late to be a crooner". I'm okay with being a late bloomer. Mama, I'm going sideways. Mama, I'm going sideways. Do you feel like you want to feel? Smiling, dancing, make believing I was happy but the prettier the picture, the border the bitch is. It was a Sunday or someday or a something and I was getting ready, dressed up for nothing. Ain't got nothing on my agenda. Still no time to call my Mama. Mama, I'm going sideways. Mama, I'm going sideways. Do you feel like you want to feel? It was a Tuesday and I was the Lizard Queen. Had on my cheap jeans and I was dreaming. Heavy, wholeheartedly about the things I want to be and all the things I wasn't - I knew I'd need a budget. Got me a job and planned real good. But all the planning didn't go as it should. I was distracted by the people walking faster than me. I'm going sideways. I'm going sideways. Do you feel like you want to feel? I'm going sideways. I'm going sideways. Do you feel like you want to feel? Like you want to feel? Like need to feel?

Staff Only

I am a good woman. I talk nice and I mean it. Why should I apologize for who you think I am being? 'I was a bad daughter, left my mama high and dry.' I'd 'probably make a bad mother' and 'leave my family for some dreams I'll have.' Oh go on and treat me bad. I said now go on and treat me bad. You're a grown-up now and you forgot your favorite color. Won't let yourself get distracted, oh no you cannot be bothered. Go on and treat me bad. I said now go on and treat me bad. You don't wanna make nice, you just wanna make some money. The devil on your shoulders got a chip on his shoulder – ain't that funny? Ha ha. You want to throw a punch? Well I can take a punch. You wanna throw a punch? Well I can take a punch. You've got a sign on your heart that says "Staff Only". A Band-Aid life, you're just staying high and lonely. Go on and treat me bad. Go on and treat yourself bad.

Those Letters

I read the letters that you wrote though they weren't meant for me. And that time that we spoke, I died patiently. Now I hear that you're broken, I guess it's meant to be. See I have salvaged your token, she's safe between my knees. My knees. My knees. Darling dear, you don't know me. You've only guessed my time. You climbed your tower of devotion, though you past your prime. Once the cancer gets cut, I will breathe just fine. And those letters that you wrote, they will escape my mind. My mind. My mind.

Travel Man

Oh my darlin', don't do me this way. I came here for new, now I want to stay. Oh Papa, don't do me this way. You a travelin' man who won't obey. I tried to tell you how I feel. I can't use words, just will. The stone that you gave me is weighing me down. Deep in meditation, no energy found. Oh Papa, when you go, you get around. I said travel man, I am spellbound. Tell your friends to buzz off my hive and let me be(e). 'Cause when I come around your part of town, you're the only one I want to see. Oh well, travel man, next time you leave take me. Oh travel man, next time you leave take me.

Well, Hell

My daddy says he's "friends with Uncle Sam." I try to change his mind and those baby booming ways. Both my hands are full and I still forgot something.I walk fast I talk fast, you better listen fast, or get left behind. My mama loves me she squeezes me, she believes in medicine, wants me to succeed and fix "those things" inside my head. "Love is not loving" mama, that's what Bowie said. He's got some secrets he can't wait to tell. Cathartic, robotic, don't worry about hurting bodies. Guess you don't believe in hell? Well, "hell". She comes around, he kicks her down, she still licks his shadow off the ground until I make a sound. "Don't be cruel to a heart that's true" like Elvis crowned. Maybe I should see my therapist, she makes me feel sane. I didn't mean to make your head spin, I have a lot to say. My puzzle's easy to solve. I still got all my pieces - peace man. You're like a dart on the wall. A far cry from the bull's-eye, you better hold tight or you will fall. Think I'm aggressive? I'm just obsessive. Maybe I'll sleep when I'm dead. "The best is yet to come" like Frankie said. Maybe I should see my therapist, she makes me feel sane. I didn't mean to make your head spin, I have a lot to say. I have a lot to say. I have a lot to say. Thank you for listening to what we have to say. I had a lot to say.
