Track Name: Miss Lindsay
Miss Lindsay always kept a neat apartment
She tidied all the corners every day
Miss Lindsay always threw the biggest parties
Too bad her favorite guests could never stay
'Cause she wears a face that she keeps in a jar
In the closet where she's gone so far

Wow, look at all the broken people
Stuck inside a life they made themselves
Wow, feel so bad for broken people
Just don't make me join them in their hell

Miss Lindsay always kept all her appointments
She did what was expected, right or wrong
Miss Lindsay knew which way the winds were blowing
Her moral compass bartered for a song
And she'll huff and she'll puff so you cannot hear
But the rumor says she's kind of queer

Wow, look at all the broken people
Stuck inside a life they made themselves
Wow, feel so bad for broken people
Just don't make me join them in their hell

'Cause there's sun enough to go around
If your heart's not buried underground ...
Wow ...
Look at all the broken people

One day Miss Lindsay's garments came unraveled
The empress was naked on her throne
Miss Lindsay's many servants could not help her
Sometimes a lie must wither on its own
And her so-called friends went on the attack
Having learned from her how to stab a back
And the ones who might have lent a hand
She'd betrayed before all this began

Wow, look at the broken people
The kind who think their own lives are a crime
Wow, feel so bad for broken people
I've been among their number in my time
Deliver us from all the broken people
Hiding out in houses built of shame
Wow, feel so bad for broken people
Deliver us from all their fear and pain
Track Name: Nothing
Life
Has not been good to you
Sweet
Is not your word
Fire and acid
Filling you
Spilling
From your shore

I don't want your venom
I am not the cause
I don't want your bullshit
You don't care, because ...
The void has come
The void is in you
Nothing spawns nothing but nothing

Truth
Does not come easily
Guile
It drips like clouds
Demons and angels
Hide from you
Imbue with specious vows

I don't want your kindness
You know it's not real
I don't want the sadness
You don't really feel
The void has come
The void is in you
Nothing spawns nothing but nothing

I don't want your venom
I am not the cause
I don't want your bullshit
Track Name: Process The Pain
With you behind me there is nothing that I can do
You always find me and I put my trust in you
You stand behind me, I wait for the whip to crack
You stand behind me, and you know you have my back
I broaden it

Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
And then I'll return for more

With you behind me there is nothing that I can't do
With you to guide me, when I put my trust in you
I kneel before you, waiting for my master's word
I kneel before you, I am humming like a bird
A hummingbird

Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
And then I'll return for more

With you behind me
No rope to bind me
You split me open
And I open up once more
Giving part of myself
I make myself whole
And your pleasure
Is the goal
I broaden it
A hummingbird
All over me

Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
And then I'll return for more

With you behind me I put all my trust in you
Nothing to bind me as I wait for what is due
The bittersweetness
The pleasure and the pain
The messy neatness
The throbbing of a vein
All over me

Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
And then I'll return for more

Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
Give me time, give me space
I can process the pain
And then I'll return for more
For more
Track Name: Wonder Drug
You wake long after noon
Thick curtain smothers your room
I hung around on a hope
Quite near the end of my rope
You take a leisurely shave
I miss the closeness I crave
It's up to me if it works
I choose to live with your quirks
We go for coffee outdoors
Five scoops of sugar in yours
You're pissed at hipsters again
Your tongue's a terrible edge
It's been a blade all along
I guess I got it all wrong
Put all my eggs in this trap
Can't seem to get my heart back

And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You wave goodbye to the high
To say hello to the low
And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You sit there dumb through the numb
It never softens the blow

Nobody made me afraid
Despite the choices I made
But I'm drifting out of control
The more I work at the role
You seem to care when I'm gone
Come back, my timing's all wrong
I'm patient up to a fault
I'll take the verbal assault
I know the terrible past
Know all the steps of that dance
And you're tough on telling the truth
Until it happens to you
Can't take the weather inside
This place of pain where you hide
It's a collaborative crime
The way we've murdered our time

And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You say goodbye to the high
To wave hello to the low
And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You sit there dumb through the numb
It never softens the blow

And I?
I wish you well
But I won't live in hell

And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You say goodbye to the high
To wave hello to the low
And love, love, love
Is such a wonder drug
You sit there dumb through the numb
It never softens the blow
Track Name: Make The Call
Comes a time
In your strife
When something comes to light
Comes a time
In your life
When everything seems right
And that's when
You can make the call

Be a man
Be a boy
Be what you invent
Make a plan
Make a ploy
Make it with intent
'Cause that's when
You can make the call

What you demand
What you decide
What you command
What you do with pride
No reprimand
Nothing denied
You're in control
And you can make the call

On your own
Being scared
Trust me
I've been there
On your own
Now you've dared
And everything seems pear
You still have
Time to make the call

Take a chance
Take a deal
Take the time to try
Try to dance
Try to feel
Try to reach the sky
You still have
Time to make the call

What you demand
What you decide
What you command
What you do with pride
No reprimand
Nothing denied
You're in control
And you can make the call

Don't let them tell you
That pigs must fly
Grow your wings
And shit in their eye
Make the call

What you demand
What you decide
What you command
What you do with pride
No reprimand
Nothing denied
You're in control
And you can make the call
Track Name: How To Be A Fashion Queen
I buy on discount
I pay with cash
You don't like my look, man
'Cause I'm full of sass
I clean up nice
I'm down and dirty
I dress to kill
I'm suave and purty
Look good in clothes
I look good naked
I'm the king of cool
No need to fake it

And this is how
This is how
This is how to be
A fashion queen

Don't follow fake trends
Not living plush
Ain't got no fast car, cause I
Still take the bus
I make heads turn
Just with my style
I make hearts yearn
Kill 'em with a smile

And this is how
This is how
This is how to be
A fashion queen

My endless selfies
Are a cry of defiance
If I don't get your approval
I'll compel your compliance
Took so long to find myself
I don't care what you think
Two right in the eyeballs
And one in the pink
You'll say my look
Is too bizarre
With a big old stogie
And a silver tiara
A designer shirt
And leather pants
But you will never catch me
'Cause you're afraid to take a chance

And this is how
This is how
This is how to be
A fashion queen
Track Name: Pretty As Fuck
(Well, aren't you just the cutest thing ever?)

Gaze of the wolf
Meek little lamb
But I ain't no sheep
Just take a look
See where you stand
I'll just want to sleep

Life of the wary
Interpret all
Bud, I see right through
I'd hit that hard
I want to ball
But I don't care to know you

Pretty as fuck
Glint in his eye
Pretty as fuck
For all it's a lie
And now I'm moving on

I may be low
Weak little sop
But I know the score
Who's gonna win?
Who's gonna top?
You don't get no more

Pretty as fuck
That's what he said
Pretty as fuck
Out of his head
And now I'm moving on
Now I'm moving on
Track Name: Elusive Now
Was it just one more role?
A costume for the crowd?
Hard to say when he's elusive now
Gone away and he's elusive now
Star Man, Thin White Duke
Too strange to call him proud
Hard to say when he's elusive now
Gone away and he's elusive now
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone

Blew open every door
Or was he just strung out?
Hard to know when he's elusive now
Strike the show, 'cause he's elusive now
Jester in hints and paint
A truth wrapped in a cloud
Hard to know when he's elusive now
Let him go 'cause he's elusive now
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone

And the bitter hearts will say
He traveled less than half the way
Lonely hearts gone fallow say
We're unfit even for his shadow
Have to lose your heroes
When they're insufficiently queer
Oh damn
I only know my changes took heart
From his passing strangeness
But he's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
He's gone, he's gone, he's gone
Track Name: Share Your Senses
Raise your voice
And let us hear the call
Make the choice
For all the men in thrall
Be the noise
Resonate
Raise your voice
So all can hear
And know you're not alone

Open eyes
So you can see the view
Spy the prize
Make it belong to you
Be the scene
Captivate
Open eyes
And all will see
And know they're not alone

Share your senses
Be the world
Alone, we're not alone
We're not alone

Bare your skin
The air is feeling fine
We'll begin
When you give me
The sign
Be the hit
Palpitate
Bare your skin
So all can feel
And know they're not alone

Breathe it all in
Inhale the world
Let it begin again

Loose the zest
So we can taste the day
Like the rest
And never look away
Be the tang
Cultivate
Loose the zest
So all can taste
And know they're not alone

Share your senses
Be the world
Alone, we're not alone
Share your senses
Be the world
Alone, we're not alone
Track Name: Damn
I just watched my fantasies
Go up in smoke
You're the bloke
With the perfect ass
I'm the butt
Of a cosmic joke
Handsome face
Working out
When you speak
You've got a brain
Everything I dream about
And I can't stand the pain
I don't wanna start a fight with fists
But I think that God is taking the piss

Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but I've met your wife
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, and it's plain to see, she's looking fine
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but it's obvious you're straight
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but it looks like I've been fucked by fate

I just watched my fantasies
Go off the tracks
She's the babe with the bangin' bust
And I'm good, but I can't compete with that
Pretty face
Killer smile
Everything she says is smart
Might as well confess right now
It's a dagger through my heart
I don't wanna rile your better half
But it looks like God is having a laugh

Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but I've met your wife
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but it's plain to see, she's looking fine
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but it's obvious you're straight
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, BRB, I gotta masturbate

I can't get my fantasies
To solve this quirk
Been so long since I went both ways
Don't know if it still works
I'd like to show up at your house
Make you flip your lids
Turn the both of you inside out
But we'd probably wake your kids
Don't wanna get stuck here playing the fool
Thank God my boyfriend's hot as you

Damn!
I'll never fuck you, or your smoking wife
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, and it's plain to see, she's looking fine
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, but I guess that it can wait
Damn!
I wanna fuck you, better get home, 'cause I'm running late

DAMN
