Track Name: Midnight Bride
Tell me, sweetness, what’s the worry

if I have you one more time?

Does it matter if the moonlight knows our secret?

What’s the crime?

Put your arms around my body,

tell me that you’ll keep me warm.

I won’t notice if you are the

one who trembles at the storm

Way out here.

I would never disobey you,

not for money, not for pride.

Ring around my rosey finger

claims me as your midnight bride.

Comb the shadows, seek me through the

twisted secrets of my lies.

As the sparrow falls from Heaven,

do you notice when it dies?

Way out here,

out here, you’ve made me wait so long.

Out here, out here, pretending you belong

beneath my gaze, you’ll slumber through my fear.

Through endless days you’ll find me wasting away

way out here.

Sugar, sugar, don’t let go o’ me.

If you know me, show me slowly.
Track Name: Toyshop
Bring your broken hearts into my toyshop.

I will make you whole with my tools.

I will hammer on your soft arteries

’til they make way for God’s love. Fools

come from far away, bringing balls of clay

for my hands to hold, mold, enfold.

Come into my shop, my sweet lollipop.

Shield yourself from the April cold.

When you went away, I thought I heard you say

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t take it all the way.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.

Come from solitude to my toyshop door.

Come and say to me one more lie.

Smile, I’m watching you. Watch me watching you.

See the things I do with my eyes.

When you bring me down, I feel all around,

I taste every sound, I want more.

Come in, ecstasy, exit empathy.

Come and knock on my Toyshop door.

When I went away, I turned back to say

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t take me all the way.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.

When we went away, we turned back to say,

“You’ll regret the day you didn’t wipe it all away.”

Hey-yay-yay don’t you come my way,

won’t you bleed the day from your heart of clay

singing hey-yeah, hey-yeah, no more lies.
Track Name: Monica's Getting her Tits Done
This place shuts down at 2 o’clock
We go outside and take a walk
We wish that we were 21
But being legal kinda takes out all the fun

I wish we had a set of wheels
I’d wear my 4-inch leopard heels
I’m getting blisters on this street
When I get home you better kiss my sexy feet

Monica’s getting her tits done
She’ll be the hottest piece in Boston
I never thought it was all about me
‘Til I found out that it is
I am the sun

You’ve never met a girl like her
And she’ll make sure that you concur
No one except for maybe me
I’ll let you go but I can never set you free

Monica’s getting her tits done
She’ll be the hottest piece in Boston
I never thought it was all about me
‘Til I found out that it is
I am the sun
You can worship me
Build all your gods to me
Circle your life ’round me
Burn for me
Die for me
Hot, can you handle it
Blind, you can’t look at me
I’ll send your world up in flames if you fuck with me
I think you know the score
I’ll make you want it more
If you walk out the door
You won’t get two blocks
This town shuts down at 2 o’clock
We’ll beat the clock
Let’s rock

Monica knows the game
She knows it’s name
She knows the rules
She has you fooled
Those pretty eyes
Think fast
She’s gone
She lied
It’s on
Poor you
Round 2
Track Name: Vision
I had a vision of you

crying in the cold.

Through sobs you called out my name,

begging me to hold you.

And as you cried, your tears caught in the sun.

And I saw they were beads of jewels, every one.

I had a vision of you standing by the willow tree.

You knew I was all alone, so you said a prayer for me.

I saw you in my mind,

how I held you tight

for you were sad and afraid,

frightened in the night.

I said, “I’ll protect you,

don’t worry, hon.”

You laughed, “You’ll protect me, huh,

little one?”

And I just nodded at you,

and you knew, in that moment you knew.

You looked down at me so still

and you said, “Yeah, I guess you will.”

Every night I close my eyes

I hear your voice inside me.

I feel your breath upon my neck.

I know that you’re beside me.

And I pray to the gods that made us to be

That you’ll find your way back to me.

That soon I can squeeze your hand

and we’ll find us a happy end.

And now I feel your eyes

searching for my soul.

Wondering if I’m still here with you,

begging just to hold you.

If only you knew

these visions are true.

If only you knew

I’m still here for you.
Track Name: 'Kay
Run away. That’s all I can say to you.

Hold me. Tell me you’ll be back again someday.

Leave behind all my love had promised you.

From now on, I’ll just be in the way.

Don’t look at me, don’t look at me.

There’s nothing I can–

Don’t look at me, don’t look at me.

Get out before I–

‘Kay. I promise not to turn you over.

But me, I’m so weak, so small, so helpless in it all.

Don’t leave your life to me.

Don’t leave your life to me.

There’s nothing I can do

To save you

save you.

Can you say you’ve nothing to hide from me no more?

I don’t think I would believe you anyway.

But go ahead. I just want to hear it from your voice.

I’ll pretend everything’s okay.

Don’t scream at me, don’t scream at me.

There’s nothing I can–

Don’t scream at me, don’t scream at me.

Get out before I–

‘Kay. I promise not to turn you over.

But me, I’m so weak, so small, so helpless in it all.

Don’t leave your life to me.

Don’t leave your life to me.

There’s nothing I can do

To save you,

save you. And I say, and I say

Don’t worry what I’ve got, because I’ve got a life to live.

And I won’t worry whether not you’re gonna take what you can give.

I can handle it. I always do.

I can handle it, but how ’bout you?

And I know, and I know

that someday you’ll be back beneath the guidance of the wind,

And I know somewhere you’ll be fine within your sin.

After all, it’s you.

After all, it’s only true.

And I say, and I say

Don’t worry what I’ve got, because I’ve got a life to live.

And I won’t worry whether not you’re gonna take what you can give.

I can handle it. I always do.

I can handle it, but how ’bout you?

And I know, and I know

that someday you’ll be back beneath the guidance of the wind,

And I know somewhere you’ll be fine within your sin.

After all, it’s you.

After all, it’s only true.
Track Name: The Sky is Close
Are you trippin' boy, you think I'd let you come along?
The wind is all I need to turn me on.
I've got the sun in my hair, I've got wings, I've got the air,
And echoed in my ears I've got the song.

Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
The sky is close, I feel the sun.
Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
And now is where I come undone
No one
has been around and around my orbit like you.
It’s true.
“Let go, let go” my heart keeps calling.
If you can’t keep up you’ll fall right down, you’ll fall right down,
and if you fall there’ll be no turning back.
And as you slip through the cracks, take a breath, try to relax.
And brace your body, brace for the impact.

Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
The sky is close, I feel the sun.
Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
And now is where I come undone.
No one
has been around and around my orbit like you.
It’s true.
“Let go, let go” my heart keeps calling.

So enthralling
If you heard what I heard, you saw what I saw,
then nary a word could call you away.
But say what you will, I’ll say what you won’t,
You’ll say “Darling, don’t.”

Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
The sky is close, I feel the sun.
Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
And now is where I come undone
No one
has been around and around my orbit like you.
It’s true.
“Let go, let go” my heart keeps calling.

ooo
Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
The sky is close, I feel the sun.
Uh-uh-uh-oh, uh-uh-uh-oh
And now is where I come undone.
Track Name: The Reason
Having sex with you is like pulling teeth, yeah

The best days we went through weren't worth the least, yeah

And I know you wanna take me back

And I know our time is through

‘Cause your love isn’t worth your bullshit

And that’s the only reason I hate you.


You’ve got so much drama and you’re no fun, yeah

And when we go out you wreck it for everyone, yeah

And I know we’ve got some things to say

Only that I think you’re gay, and that’s okay,

But your love isn’t worth your bullshit

And that’s the only reason I hate you.


Whoah whoah whoah whoah

You’re the last man on earth, I’ll go fuck a baboon

Procreation’s not worth all the crap that you spew

For the last time, it’s the last time.


If you love a butterfly, set it free, yeah

If you hate it all the better if you ask me, yeah

If you’re done with talking all your smack

Go away and don’t come back

‘Cause your love isn’t worth your bullshit

And that’s the only reason I hate you.

And that’s the only reason I hate you

Douche.
Track Name: A Carol
One was the call, and one was the fall,
And one was the hope of all:
Knowing that death, for all that it’s worth
Must have its start in birth.
Come down from your lair
Come burning the air

Oh
Silent night, Silent night,
Star of wonder, star of light.
Burning bright, holy night,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Come from the sky, oh do or we die.
Answer your children’s cry.
Remembering when you walked among men,
Set foot on the Earth again.
Come down from your lair
Come burning the air

Oh
Silent night, Silent night,
Star of wonder, star of light.
Burning bright, holy night,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Away in a manger all time comes to solidfiy.
Away in a stable the Lord of the Earth learns to cry.
Oh king of creation, who are you to come in this way,
To blast through the atmosphere, landing asleep on the hay.

Give us your peace or give us your sword,
Just don’t keep us waiting, Lord.
The earth is aflame, our hearts are the same.
Establish your holy name.
Come down from your lair
Come burning the air

Oh
Silent night, Silent night,
Star of wonder, star of light.
Burning bright, holy night,
Guide us to thy perfect light.
Track Name: Snowshadow
No sound of footsteps, you don't cast a shadow.
Silently you die on my breath without a scream, without screaming.

Grains from Heaven's realm, I crush you beneath me.
Do you feel the pain that I bring, or do you dream, are you dreaming?

You give your life for the warmth of human touch.
Only the frozen realize that it's worth that much.
You fall like an angel, conquering the darkness down below.
Yet in an hour you are sacrificed to the sun's soft glow.

If all the stars up in the sky grew cold and lost their glow
They'd touch us one last time and fall to Earth as snow.

In the cold lamplight, you shine like a rainbow,
And I thought I saw you cast a shadow...
Track Name: Pull Me Up
Early in the winter it’s still raining, though it’s cold.
Sunlight breaks the morning- oh don’t touch me, eyes of gold.
‘morrow I’ll be sleeping where the rainbows won’t appear.
Somehow it makes me feel better just to realize my time is near.

Mother, can you hear me? I’m waiting for your call.
Hurry to your baby. I can’t make it alone to where you are.

Someone’s wishing for me, hear their whispers on the wind.
But what can I tell them? My hands are empty, filled with sin.
Satan, please forgive me. You’re the last one I’ll betray.
Preacher, is it sinning? To hurt the devil, is that okay?

Mother, can you hear me? I’m waiting for your call.
Hurry to your baby.
I can’t make it alone through the night.
I can’t make it alone through the night.
I can’t make it alone to the light.
I can’t see the light.
No I can’t reach the stars from my own two feet
I can’t climb my way to the mountain peak
I can’t lift my corpse from off of the street
I can’t hear a thing, mama lemme hear you speak.

Reach out your hand and pull me up, mama
Pull me up
Mama pull me up, mama pull me up
Mama pull me up, mama pull me up
Mama pull me up, please pull me up
Please pull me up, please pull me up
Please pull me up, pull me,
Pull me, pull me, pull me up…
