Track Name: all he wants
I know that girl
she's Holly Golightly
she speaks so fucking brightly
that you can't see anything

oh, mother of pearl
you go for adornment
she's another ornament
that doesn't mean anything

all he wants
is just another kick in the shins
why don't you give it to him?

so, place the bet
he'll run from the stables
the jockey is able
long as he's ponying up

the string quartet
will go with the odds here
though the message is unclear
he thinks that the bottle's enough

all he wants
is just another kick in the shins
why don't you give it to him?

the light at the end of the tunnel
is just a funnel for you to slip through

all he wants
is just another kick in the shins
why don't you give it to him?
all he wants is another cyrano curse
baby, if you wish for the worst
you'll get the worst
Track Name: rubber match
I know you wanna knock me out
well, guess what? your goal is a bout.
you're waiting for the count of three
to get at me

I know you wanna crack my head
guess what? I'm already dead
hanging around to haunt the ring
depending on what you believe

but if you think there's hope
well, here's the rope
I'll be the first to hand you the trophy
and if the uppercut
just isn't enough
don't worry, you'll get me
in round three

I know you wanna break me in
well, my glass jaw's wearing thin
but you're more content to bob and weave
than hit me

you think you've got a shot in hell
aim on, I'm just a shell
a blank bold faced legacy
on a marquee

but if you think there's hope
well, here's the rope
I'll be the first to hand you the trophy
and if the uppercut
just isn't enough
don't worry, you'll get me
in round three

'cause you're an amateur, baby
Track Name: everything you read
remember nobody liked you?
the irredeemably shy
now you're that guy

keeping up with the joneses
buying and calling the shots
you're on top

the ballots are in
the homecoming queen says you win
the band starts to play
but don't you remember what you used to say?

I would've liked you anyway
I would've been just as bad off if you wanted to stay

with a gospel so fool proof
who wouldn't believe
everything you read

but you're silently mocking
the crowd at your feet
don't you feel cheap?

the hush through the stands
shows that everything's going as planned
but at the end of the day
don't you remember what you used to say?

I would've liked you anyway
I would've been just as bad off if you wanted to stay

the girls are asking me,
they say, hey, do you know if he's free?
I say baby, he's cheaper than free.
Track Name: the sweetest thing
the anti-ice queen, a shallow brigade
think that you can turn me into lemonade
or fuck me 'til I'm straight and seeing stars

your ingenue, it's a sordid tale
please give me the old hammer and nail
'cause I'm the girl in those smokey, dingy bars

I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen
a pin up girl, poster child for your violence
or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face
with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence

so, let's get busy, but not too busy
to lead you to believe that I'm feeling dizzy
'cause I don't buy your act even for a minute

if your endorphins are misbehaving
that doesn't mean that I need saving
an Oscar Wilde style trial for me to finish

I don't ever wanna be the sweetest thing you've ever seen
a pin up girl, poster child for your violence
or stuck up in your trophy case, the cream pie ends up in my face
with marriage, baby, take the vow of silence
Track Name: wreck my life
baby was good, good from the get go
everyone stood, waiting for the signal
take a double shot
ante up one more for the pot

I've got lots of time
to wreck my life

keep it in gear, it's yours for the taking
though it isn't clear which mistakes you're making
cellophane the sky
hang the jury out to dry
why not try

lots of time
to wreck my life

there's nobody on the line
you'l say that it's enough
but if your demon is just a
part of your business
then, maybe, you've got it rough
Track Name: nebula
I am moving across a crowded room
I am doing my best to impress you
I am trying to avoid the ricochet
I can load the gun, but I'll never learn how to play

I'll move for you each and every time
with the hope that you'll quash my fears
the gravity is thin, you'll pierce the skin
slow motion in light years

I am looming in a dusty cloud of sky
no good assuming that there's more than meets the eye
you will orbit in a vacuum, stuck in time
I can board the ship, but I'll never learn how to fly

I'll move for you each and every time
with the hope that you'll quash my fears
the gravity is thin, you'll pierce the skin
slow motion in light years
