Track Name: My Turn
My Turn
You can say what you want
You can do what you want
I don’t care what you want
It’s My Turn

When you’re off on your own
You say you’re feeling all alone
honey who answered the phone
You don’t learn

You think you have a knack
to keep me off of the attack
just wait til you get back
It’s My Turn

Cause it’s always the same
When you won’t say my name
I know it’s just a game
I don’t learn

Baby, when you’re bad
You know I just go mad


You just do what you do
but you haven’t thought it through
I’ve had enough of you
it’s my turn

You’re a slave to your lust
and it’s why we’ll go bust
you’re a brand I don’t trust
you don’t learn

You can sell shoes to snakes
got the charm that it takes
but your cover always breaks
you don’t learn

And the buyer best beware
cause there ain’t nothin’ there
love is war, all is fair
it’s My Turn

Baby, don’t feel bad
I know all men are mad

You won’t feel
any-thing
it won’t mean
not-a-thing
maybe when
you’re sleeping
close your eyes
no peeking
x2

You don’t like it that’s tough
cause I’ve finally had enough
lover boy don’t wait up
you gotta learn

You can say what you want
you can do what you want
I don’t care what you want
It’s My Turn

Baby, don’t be mad
it’s My Turn to be bad
Track Name: Fathom5
FATHOM5

The air is still across the sea
You long for what you cannot keep
A stranger tide
A lover’s sigh
A pull below that you can’t deny
That’s why you’ve come searching for me

Let my voice be your guide
Til you find your way to my side

You’ve been warned of what you seek
You’ll find my heart five fathoms deep
No regrets
For what you’ve left
Let my voice guide your every breath
Your heart is strong your will is weak

Let my voice pull you down
You won’t stop until you’re trapped beneath the sound

Lost alone on a lonely tide
This ship, the shore, this endless lie
All you need is the sea
All you want is here with me
(when)Love’s the air that you breathe

The air is still you cannot sleep
You hunt for what you cannot keep
Lovers lie
Say goodbye
Lose yourself to what you’ve left behind
You lost your heart five fathoms deep

Let my voice be your guide
Lose yourself to the end
in the air you cannot breathe

Loose yourself in the tide
Lose yourself to the end
in The air you cannot breathe

Til you rest by my side
Lose yourself to the end
in The air you cannot breathe

Let my voice be your only guide
Lose yourself to me
Track Name: Permission Withdrawn
Permission Withdrawn
You ever been cursed by a witch?
It makes you cold, makes your skin itch
It makes you feel like there's a thousand eyes
Watching you, all the time.

I feel lonely and nervous like
I got a dead small feeling I keep inside
I leave a trail when I touch the ground
And my feet, my feet feel like they weigh a thousand pounds

You said, that's fair, done you been there
And I got that feeling again
There's truth, in lies
When you, realize
Giving it to someone means they can give it back to you

Perhaps you'll be more careful like
When you hate me, date me, make me vanish
Out of sight
I've trapped your voice so you won't get found
and I'm so close to you that I hear your every sound

Friday night a drink drunk
Saturday night a card shark
And sunday on a train to West Berlin

(break)

Well I don't think you know it yet
Who's cursed to thirst for tears and whose eyes are awfully wet
Loyal creatures by your side
If you're hungry or you're hopeless it's a great place to hide

You said, don't care, forgot, I'm here
And I know you're lying again
But you realize
Need wings to fly
Long as I can reach you you're never getting off the ground

That's right, you said
Don't care, I'm here
And I know you're lying again
There's truth, in lies
When you, realize
Long as i can reach you you're never getting off the ground

Friday night a drink drunk
Saturday night a card shark
And sunday on a train to West Berlin
Track Name: With You
With You
No one can hear or see us tonight
This is not for them to enjoy
sometimes I just really need some release (from this)

with you

I know how to *turn you on so
lets make like movies, all in slo mo
some_times it’s just better when I’m alone

with you
with you

chorus
It is like a rushing wave
breaking lose a rusty gate
it is like a primal force
Five star meal of just one course

it is just like you
but it is not you

I know you like no one else can
tucked away into our own world
sometimes i think i have all i need (inside)

no one can come between us i know
*you will only *respond to my touch
sometimes it’s much better when i’m alone (at night)

with you

chorus
It is losing all control
letting go and taking hold
riding on a rising tide
shaking up from deep inside

it is just for me
but it is not me
Track Name: Pink Dance
Pink Dance
someday we'll go to drive
a lovely
trip to the country side
so pretty
think of the ways we tried
i'll think of the ways you lied
so happy inside
you on the outside

scenery dashing by*
so dizzy
just like the days can fly
so busy
you try to hold my hand
i try to understand
so happy inside
you on the outside

*chorus*
la la la la la loving you
la la la la la losing you
days gone by
long gone by
you still wonder why letting go
*chorus*

we met when we were young
innocent
you were just having fun
i wasn't
think when we came apart
i think when you broke my heart
so happy inside
you on the outside

you needed to be free
to do what
you said it wasn't me
of course not
think of my lovely eyes
i'll think of the times i cried
so happy inside
you on the outside

*chorus*
la la la la la long ago
la la la la la lovely though
days gone by
long gone by
i can't let it die letting go
*chorus*

*BRIDGE*
how do you spell happiness?
R-E-V-E-N-G-E

and what kinda guy's gonna need that mess?
A-S-S-H-O-L-E

don't give me that weak ass shit
A-P-O-L-O-G-Y

I'm here to tell you this is it:
G-O-O-D-B-Y- laugh

i know we'll still be friends
so lovely
someday we'll meet again
so lucky
think of me once and sigh
I'll think of you once you die
so happy inside
you on the outside

countryside whizzing past
careening
i'm having quite a blast
you're screaming
beg me to let you go
i turn up the radio
so happy inside
you on the outside

*double chorus*
i can't quite recall loving you
now i don't regret losing you
days gone by
long gone by
la la la la la letting go

i made up my mind long ago
watching my revenge is lovely though
die die die
die die die
time to say goodbye letting go
Track Name: Let Me
Let Me

verse
Don’t lets talk about tomorrow right now
You’re here with me that’s all that counts
Lets pretend you’ll never have to leave
Tell me everything I want to believe

Just ignore the world outside
Stay in here where you’ll always be mine
Now is the only time you have to give
Here in your arms is where I live
chorus
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end

verse
Don’t let me tell you how I feel right now
words can’t make it all work out
just lie with me a little more
there’s no me, no you, no her, and no door

Let me make believe a part
I can play when we are gone
Where “ifs” and “ours” do not exist
and “wrong”, it has no part in this

chorus
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end

break
I wanted to be
here where lies can be free
but now you’re tel/ling me
to mur/der our fan/ta/sy

Don’t try to tell me how you feel right now
Time for words has all run out
There’s nothing left worth lying for
I won’t pretend I didn’t always want more

Tomorrow when we’re far apart
we’ll make believe you’re glad I’m gone
pretend you had no heart in this
and you and I do not exist

but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
but these dreams, well these dreams
are coming to an end
Track Name: Millermania
Millermania
It’s a sideways glance, through a staring crowd
eyes held too long, it’s attention found
It’s an elbow touched, when we shake hands
A brief pleasantry that wants to make plans

It’s a long, long way to where the coats are checked
And it’s a good excuse for a cigarette
In the quiet dark on the balcony
always better with some company

I see you watching
Don’t leave me waiting

you say my name
just to hear the sound
just to catch my eye
when I turn around
it's a baited breath
before the game begins
we can play it cool
but we want to dive in

it's a long long walk
to where the car is parked
and we don't quite touch
but I feel your heart
beat the quite dark
on the silent street
always better there
with some company

i feel you watching
don't leave me waiting

waiting in an empty hall
a coffee shop
the corner park
a cul-de-sac
a busy mall
or anywhere you want to go

watching for the smallest sign
the slightest clue
your heart is mine
a private note
a midnight call
a secret only we can know



it’s a careful way
that we never touch
and we say too much
when it’s not enough
and it’s fun to play
but it ends too soon
in the staring glance
through a crowded room

you see me watching
don’t leave me
Track Name: She is X
She is X
verse
Do you think it’s the lights?
Do you think it feels nice, baby?
Do you think it’s the wine?
Do you think you’re alright, hey?

It’s like a constant vibration that tells you that you’re in control
But I’m the ghost pilot secret driver puppet master who says no no no

chorus
I am the want, inside you
when you are bad, I’m there too
I’ll make you do all these things
I am the only thing you’ll ever need to feel good now

verse
When you narrow your eyes
Like you’re in disguise, baby
When it never feels right
Feel like taking a bite, hey

It’s like a fever dream delirium that tells you where you’ve, got to go
But I’m the shoulder devil inside voice hallucination who says no no no

CHORUS hit it
I am the want, inside you
when you are bad, I’m there too
I’ll make you do all these things
I am the only thing you’ll ever need to feel good now

verse
When you look at the lights
Will it still all feel nice, baby?
Do you want some more wine?
Everything’ll be fine, hey

It’s like a constant vibration that tells you who is in control
But I’m the ghost pilot secret driver puppet master who says go go go

CHORUS hit it
I am the want, inside you
when you are bad, I’m there too
I’ll make you do all these things
I am the only thing you’ll ever need to feel good now

I am the want, inside you
when you are bad, I’m there too
I’ll make you do all these things
I am the only thing you’ll ever need to feel good now
Track Name: Without You
Without You
I have lost control
I have lost all feeling
but I can see below
it’s your love that I’m stealing

I can’t be late
I don’t feel safe
with you

But I can’t stand to be here
without you

when you’re all alone
I know what you’re thinking
no one else can know
lets be glasses clinking

I take mine straight
I feel insane
I have lost control

But I can’t stand to be here
without you

I think we both know
we’re light as a feather
time for us to go
lets disappear together

I feel it’s late
I hate this place
I have lost control
and I can’t stand to be
without you
Track Name: Oblivious and Invincible
Oblivious and Invincible
Well it’s another crime
and you think you’ve got the answers
but it’s one more time
that you can’t stop with the chatter
you’ve dropped all your names
and now you’re tripping on them
anyone can make a scene, drama queen
but just cause people look at you does not mean you’re an entertainer.

don’t trust danger
cause she won’t pay ya
watch where you leave it
cause someone will steal it


you say you’re on the list
but names plus one is zero
cause to be a star
you just shoot the sky with people

the music plays too loud
so we don’t have to listen
wasted, pasty, sketchy people strung out oh my
if you wanna rock the house you gotta sometimes rock a dirty house

don’t trust danger
cause she won’t pay ya
con an can wreck shit
and then they’ll delete it
(fear’s got the best shit
you might have to take it)

and I wanna steal all the fun
and you want to never be done
but you know, we know

you took all the cash
but you don’t know where you stashed it
anyone can rent a stage, miss spare change
well keep the money you’ll need it to pay for lawyers and rehab

don’t trust danger
cause she won’t pay ya
talk to me sweetly
and just talk about me
Track Name: Sleepwalking Showtunes
spider on the sill
does she spin there still?
kept always dark and cool
her room was just like you

one small square of sky
this is where we’d hide
there’s barely room for two
I’m here now where are you?

smiling as you sleep
only there for me
but now your smile is dust
it maybe always was

PRE-CHORUS 1
everybody knows
when the curtains close
what you can’t see’s not there

and you take your bow
and it’s over now
now it’s only ever now

CHORUS 1
feel you standing close to me
I don’t need to see
I can walk to you in my

sleep just brings you back to me
you don’t let me be
I just wish you’d say good bye

verse 2
Once I thought I’d drown
Staying in our town
The park where we held hands
It’s lake has turned to sand

Standing on your street
wish my heart could freeze
pretending not to care
that you’re never everywhere

PRE-CHORUS 2
what nobody knows
with the curtains closed
they can’t see you’re not there

cause you closed the show
so our love’s a ghost
now it’s only ever no

CHORUS 2
they say this will fade away
fainter every day
still i search for you in my

dreams can’t keep you by my side
there’s a reason why
that you never said goodbye

feel you standing close to me
I don’t need to see
I can walk to you in my

sleep will bring you back to me
dreaming endlessly
So I can hear you say good bye
