Track Name: STAB
(Goodbye sun, goodbye moon
I'm coming to where you are soon
Take a picture, make a wish
I've never felt as sure as this)

I've got a fetish, love is pathetic
And the world's about to end.
I'm up in the attic,
With Dad's automatic
And a note writ on my hand.
I've got sisters and brothers
Same as my mother
Won't get off my case
In the papers tomorrow
They'll fake all their sorrow
Then they'll leave me here to waste

Rest me in pieces now, and cauterize your love for me (your love, your love)
Rest me in pieces now, and vaporize my history (my history)
Now take another stab at my heart.

I'm feeling sorry, nobody wants me
I'm gonna eat some steel
Adrenaline's peakin'
Logic is tweakin'
Life's never felt so real
I'm so sick of Al Qaeda
They're entertainers
Playin' on people's fear
So I'm fucking the system
I'm not a victim
I'm getting out of here

Rest me in pieces now, and cauterize your love for me (your love, your love)
Rest me in pieces now, and vaporize my history (my history)
Now take another stab at my heart.

Take another stab at my heart
Take another stab at my heart
Now fight for my body
Fight for my body

Rest me in pieces now, and cauterize your love for me (your love, your love)
Rest me in pieces now, and vaporize my history (my history)
Now take another stab at my heart.
Track Name: BILLY BONES
Thin and long
He was a ticking bomb
Gutter Mouth
Bred in the deepest South
Billy Bones
As he was always known
Was a horror of a human being
Hand grenades
Rockets and razor blades
Fifty tins
Of nitro glycerin
Billy Bones
Spent all his time alone
Lost in pyrotechnic dreams

Billy Bones
What an awful creature
(Billy Bones...)
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
'Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things

Breaking news
Billy has blown his fuse
Out of hell
Into a padded cell
Billy Bones
Was throwing sticks and stones
When the doctors came to take him in
(naughty boy...)

Billy bones
What an awful creature
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
Billy Bones

What an awful creature
He's so full of sin
Billy Bones
Better get the preacher
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
Cause when the sun goes down
Billy does evil things
(What an awful creature)
Billy Bones
(Better get the preacher)
Billy Bones
(What an awful creature)
Billy Bones
Track Name: SPASTIC ANNIE
(Spastic Annie, Spastic Annie)
(Spastic Annie, Spastic Annie)

Strapped to a wheelchair
Her body is broke
She twitches and jerks
She drools and she jokes
But underneath everything
She's quite aware
Of what people say
And how people stare
But she doesn't care

Spastic Annie looks so pretty
She talks to herself cause there's nobody else
Who'll listen to her crazy little words

Tired of the sympathy
Of being left out
The thoughts in her brain are twisted about
So no matter what she does
Or how she tries
Nobody can tell
What she feels inside
Cause her tongue is tied

Spastic Annie looks so pretty
She talks to herself cause there's nobody else
Who'll listen to her crazy little words

Annie, Annie we're much the same
Annie, Annie I'll ease your pain

(Spastic Annie, Spastic Annie)

Spastic Annie looks so pretty
She talks to herself cause there's nobody else
Who'll listen to her crazy little words

Spastic Annie
Spastic Annie
Spastic Annie
Spastic Annie looks so pretty, yeah
Spastic Annie
Track Name: STUPID FRIDAY
Sunlight woke you up at ten
Midnight passed you by again
But you're still the same
And years seem to fly like time
You've been walking the white line
But you want to change

So long, love you dearly
I've got to go away tonight
I don't know quite what to say
Stupid Friday
And now all my words are gone
I've swallowed every single one
Didn't have to be this way
Stupid Friday

No more speaking from the heart
No more hiding from the past
Gonna go it hard
Pretty boy don't think you're so tough
Pretty boy not pretty enough
Now you've gone too far

So long, love you dearly
I've got to go away tonight
I don't know quite what to say
Stupid Friday
And now all my words are gone
I've swallowed every single one
Didn't have to be this way
Stupid Friday

It's the only way
That you learn to live
We can only pray

So long I love you dearly
I've got to go away tonight
I don't know quite what to say
Stupid Friday
And now all my words are gone
I've swallowed every single one
Didn't have to be this way
Stupid Friday
Track Name: APPARITION
Out of my nightmares,
Into my headlights,
I see a little child,
Making it hard for me to hide.
Out of my bloodstream,
Onto my radar,
Murdering you for miles,
I feel uneasy as you cry.

Out of my nightmares,
Into my headlights,
I see a little child,
Making it hard for me to hide.
Out of my bloodstream,
Onto my radar,
Murdering you for miles,
I feel uneasy as you cry.

I'm not a vegan,
I'm not a sadist,
I'm just a little boy,
Talking 'bout all that we've destroyed,
Porno beauticians,
Talking proficient,
Soon in a little while,
I'll find it easier to smile.

Out of my nightmares,
Into my headlights,
I see a little child,
Making it hard for me to hide.
Out of my bloodstream,
Onto my radar,
Murdering you for miles,
I feel uneasy as you cry.
Track Name: YES! MATRON
Paging Dr. Feelgood
I think I'm having too much fun
Dolled up in a nurse's skirt
Chewing bubblegum

Tell me that you want me
Take me to the ER
Put me on an IV
Lay me on a crash cart

Oh, Yes! Matron
I'm in love again
My operation went all wrong
Oh, Yes! Matron
Every now and then
Your occupation turns me on
and on...

Listen, my physician
I'm really feeling kinda sick
But you can make me better
It only takes a little prick

Calculate my heart rate
Feel it getting faster
Up my daily intake
You're just what I'm after

Oh, Yes! Matron
I'm in love again
My operation went all wrong
Oh, Yes! Matron
Every now and then
Your occupation turns me on
and on...

Bandage my wounds and tie me down to your slab
I'm gonna be the best damn lover you've ever had
Treat me all night cause baby, I've been so bad

Oh, Yes! Matron
I'm in love again
My operation went all wrong
Oh, Yes! Matron
Every now and then
Your occupation turns me on
and on...
Track Name: ORDINARY GUY
The streetlights could make me cry
and so could your empty eyes.
I couldn't help you if you fell down
in this small suburban town.

I'm not strong enough to be your saviour;
I can't take you that high,
I'm just an ordinary guy.
I'm not brave enough to be your hero;
I've got nothing to hide,
I'm just an ordinary guy like you,
like you

There's nothing that you don't know,
There's nowhere else left to go
Sorry to tell you the sad truth is
There's nothing more than this

I'm not strong enough to be your saviour;
I can't take you that high,
I'm just an ordinary guy.
I'm not brave enough to be your hero;
I've got nothing to hide,
I'm just an ordinary guy like you,

Like you and your friends,
and the man in the paper.
The lady who drinks cause her husband still hits her

A checkout chick with great aspirations
All ordinary girls
and ordinary guys like you
...like you

I'm not strong enough to be your saviour;
I can't take you that high,
I'm just an ordinary guy.
I'm not brave enough to be your hero;
I've got nothing to hide,
I'm just an ordinary guy like you,
Just like you,
I'm just an ordinary guy.
Track Name: MAKE BELIEVE
Colour fades away, slowly swirling down the drain
You're bitter and you're tired of waiting
Someone's banging down the door
But you've heard it all before
Nothing they could say would change things

The chemicals of love you can smell it in the air
Blissfully deranged and screaming.....

Don't come crawling to me
I'm living in a world of make believe
I'm all that I wanna be
I'm living in a world of make believe
and I'm not coming home

Alcoholic fumes, carpet stains and empty rooms
You're talking to your own reflection
And someone you don't know
Says it's time for you to go
They say it's for your own protection

The residue of love, you can taste it everywhere
Hoplessly estranged and pleading......

Don't come crawling to me
I'm living in a world of make believe
I'm all that I wanna be
I'm living in a world of make believe
And im not coming home
I'm not coming home
I'm not coming home
I'm not coming home

Colour fades away, slowly swirling down the drain
You're bitter and you're tired of waiting
Someone's banging down the door
But you've heard it all before
And they won't go away

The chemicals of love, you can smell it in the air
Blissfully deranged and screaming........

Don't come crawling to me
I'm living in a world of make believe
I'm all that I wanna be
I'm living in a world of make believe
I'm all that I wanna be
I'm living in a world of make believe
And I'm not coming home
So just leave me alone.
Track Name: SUBSEQUENTLY SAD
Just say what you want to say
Turn around and walk away
And I'll just stand here wondering why
We can't give it one more try

No more shelter from the storm
No more faith to keep me warm
And we're standing in the rain
But it doesn't feel the same

You know I can't live this way

I lost the best thing that I had
And I am subsequently sad
All the good times and the bad
I still don't know who I am
Sad...
Sad...

Sometimes wonder why we're here
Fall in love and disappear
Blood is red, your eyes are blue
I need both to get me through

So kiss me now - don't put up a fight
I'll make everything alright

You know I can't live this way

I lost the best thing that I had
And I am subsequently sad
All the good times and the bad
I still don't know who I am
Sad...
Sad...

Tell me now, just spit it out
What is all of this about?
We've been through all this before
I can't take it any more

I lost the best thing that I had
And I am subsequently sad
All the good times and the bad
I still don't know who I am

I lost the best thing that I had
And I am subsequently sad
All the good times and the bad
I still don't know who I am
Sad...
Sad...

You know I can't live this way.
Track Name: TOUCH
Do you know you steal my breath
Make me feel I'm second best
Hold me up at gunpoint whisper in my ear
Just a narcissistic crush
That doesn't seem to matter much
'Til I find that you're here
Even when you're not

You mean so much
Cause all I've got is your touch
All I've got is your touch

Do you know how juvenile
I feel when you make me smile
I'm above you but I love to be brought down
And if only you'd resist
All the boundaries that exist
I could look you in the eye and tell you now

You mean so much
Cause all I've got is your touch
All I've got is your touch
Track Name: TRAILER TRASH THEME PARK
Somebody call me an ambulance
I'm coming down with a new romance
In America, in America

Silicon actors and beauty queens
Auto erotica magazines
In America, uh huh

It's my trailer trash
It's my trailer trash
theme park

Somebody call me a taxi cab
I'm gettin' down with the latest fad
In America, in America

Counterfeit faces on dollar bills
Money can buy you the cheapest thrills
In America, uh huh

It's my trailer trash
It's my trailer trash
Theme park, Theme park

The United States of America

It's my trailer trash
It's my trailer trash
It's my trailer trash theme park

In America, In America
Theme park
In America, in America
Theme park

Somebody call me an ambulance...
Theme park...
Somebody call me an ambulance...

I think I'm in love.
Track Name: THE MANNEQUIN BALL
She lived on the 17th floor
Above an accessory store
She'd watch the sun rise and then fall
And dress for the Mannequin Ball

For every night at 12 o'clock
Her father would close up his shop
And visit his only true love
They'd dance all the night

And he looked in her eyes
Of porcelain ice,
And told her that he had to go
Over the moonlight,
Where your dreams can't be sold
And you never grow old

And after her love disappeared
The mannequin waited for years
She stood by the window alone
And wished for her love to come home

And although he never returned
No matter how long that she yearned
She could still here him whisper her name

She danced all the same...

And he looked in her eyes
Of porcelain ice,
And told her that he had to go
Over the moonlight,
Where your dreams can't be sold
And you never grow old

She was left on her own
Looking for love
Spent her time counting the stars

And the whole world will fall
For the Mannequin Ball
And the whole world will fall
For the Mannequin Ball
And the whole world will fall
For the Mannequin Ball
Track Name: TRACES
Walking down your street
Wondering what I have come to
Counting down the weeks
Since I've been left without you
And I remember way back when
We made it first, and my heart burst
We hung out every weekend
But then you sent me...

A long story
A short letter
And everything we had was finished forever
And even though I know we're through
In everything I do, I find traces of you

Every day I'm torn
But I know that you're some place
Constellations form
That remind me of your face
And sometimes when I close my eyes
I fade away into the days
When we would talk 'till sunrise
Before you sent me...

A long story
A short letter
And everything we had was finished forever
And even though I know we're through
In everything I do, I find traces of you

This isn't how things should have been
I made you mine on Valentine's
I even bought you ice cream
But still you sent me...

A long story
A short letter
And everything we had was finished forever
And even though I know we're through
In everything I do, I find traces of you.
