Track Name: Love is Wasted
Love Is Wasted

Knelt down the floor, know that it doesn’t make it right
Granted me forgiveness, but you still can’t sleep at night
Just like a tornado, I’m gonna tear this fucking city down
Eating people for breakfast, burning love to the ground

Loved is wasted on the loved

Gave everything to you from my body to my pride
It pains me so much just to see you, it twists me up inside
And to look at you in the eyes is one-fucked-up-a-ride
Broke my soul and stole my mind yet you still get to decide

Love is wasted on the loved
Track Name: Hedonism
Hedonism

Won’t you maybe kiss me goodnight?
If only I could tuck you in tight
Itch me, itch me where it feels right
Lovin’ through the long, lonely night

Lovin’ is the thing I do best
You fill in the blanks, I’ll give out the test
Touch me, Touch and all the rest
Cupid’s arrow shot through my chest

I only want to live like a dream
All boudoir walls all covered in steam
I want the syrup, cake, the peaches and cream
So now we feast, and drink and twist ‘til we scream
Track Name: He's My Muse
He's My Muse

Here comes my muse: sunshine boy, sex bomb
He’ll never know: the novels, the eternal song,
the poetry in his eyes, the ballads that lie in his bones
There goes my muse: sunshine boy, sex bomb

Looks right, he talks right, he does right, he feels right, nice and light
I take a little time, I try to occupy my mind,
but then I find you deep inside and then I feel right, nice and light

Here comes my muse: sunshine boy, sex bomb,
He’ll never know: the rainbow of betrayals,
the embellishments and the lies, the stretching of the holy truth
There goes my muse: sunshine boy, sex bomb
Track Name: New Lows
New Lows

Been thinking I might just give up on myself
Been thinking about wellbeing/mental health
Been thinking about dropouts, lovers and sex
Been thinking about giving up on the rest

Please call me down from this ledge
Something call me down from this ledge

Not the first man that I gave way too much
Not the first time that I burned at the touch
Not the first woman I learned not to trust
Not the first place where I wasn’t enough

Please call me down from this ledge
Something call me down from this ledge

Nothing feels at home like this ledge
Track Name: The Future
The Future

Take my head right off my body
I’ve been waiting, in pain, saying:
I feel nothing, I feel something
Like a calling, please transplant me now

Technology will transform me
It transmutes me, it translates things,
What I mean, I need to say is
Please release me, science meets the body now

Take my mind, it’s full of yearning
Full of longing, full of wanting,
To be one with the future to be,
Like a machine, lean, mean, clean and free
Track Name: Judge Me
Judge Me

You don’t own my body
You don’t make me randy
You don’t even know me
Don’t act like I think you adore me

Why I gotta say sorry when it’s not my story?
No, I don’t need forgiveness, that’s not my weakness
You want me to bend me down on my knees and pray, but I don’t feel no shame descend on me, I set it free
I got off my knees, blew kisses to the bees, set sail on the seas, are you with me sugar pea?

You don’t own my body
So don’t you call me naughty
And act like you think you’re above me
Oh man, if you knew how that bugged me

You don’t own my body
So don’t you call me snobby
I’ll walk these streets proudly
And don’t give a shit if you judge me
Track Name: No Time For A Crisis
No Time for a Crisis

I don’t regret the things I do
I get over it, don’t get blue
And to myself I’m always true
Too busy in pursuit of the truth

Someone got the best of me
That don’t mean they’re better than me
So they don’t get the rest of me
No, this won’t make a mess of me

Wanna feel good, not gonna dwell
Shame and blame- what a living hell
A "Fuck you!"- don’t wish you well
Not gonna fall under a spell

Quittin’ time! This game is through
I’m punching out of my time with you
Getting’ out while the getting is good
No time for a crisis, dude
Track Name: Humourless Rock Music
Humourless Rock Music

You gotta put away those toys
If you wanna play with the big boys
If you wanna break through that noise
It’s all about distinguishing your choice

It’s humourless and colourless
It tastes like piss,
It looks like this,
It wraps the cuffs around your wrists
And most of all it feels timeless
It’s objective and subjectless
It’s merits they are endless
It’s proponents: relentless
It leaves you feeling restless

It’s more than a play thing
It’s not just a play thing

I studied ‘cause I wanted to be good
To do as the master says I should
Track Name: Damage/Control
Damage/Control

Worked into the same corner again, Haven’t I been here before?
Haven’t you been here before? Haven’t we been here before?

Friends are just too tough and love it gets so rough, Haven’t I been here before?
Haven’t you been here before? Haven’t we been here before?

Rally up the problems, ‘cause, yeah, they just keep coming
Guess I’m just like the rest with me there’s always something
When I’m not staying true to a boy like you
Then I’m not staying true to what I need to undo

Love me like you once did before!
Can you love me like you once before?

Tell me something good I don’t know
Haven’t I been here before? (That’s why I’m going)
Haven’t you been here before? (That’s why I’m going)
Haven’t we been here before? (That’s why I’m going)

Stop acting like you know what it means
Haven’t I been here before? (That’s why I’m going)
Haven’t you been here before? (That’s why I’m going)
Haven’t we been here before? (That’s why I’m going)
