Deaded 04:03
-LYRICS- You give us all a bad name. Patronising, unwelcome and I'm glad that you said it, cause now you are dead. What gave you the right to speak to me, didn't get the hint when you saw me cross the street? Fuck you, I wont just smile, cause you said it. I'll smile when you're dead. You don't have eyes the I can see, I just see x's where your eyes should be. So bored, I could cry but, you just don't get it, I'll be bored till you're dead. Bored to tears of what you guys expect of me. I'm single, that doesn't mean public property. Selfish, taking me time, and the lies that you fed? I will eat when I'm dead. Have a fucking bag of crisps for tea, you just gave me a great excuse to leave. Chorus It was something you said, Well, I cant remember, what you said But I wanted you dead. You give us all a bad name. Pathetic, thats right, I said it. You're pathetic, you're gonna be dead. No one owes you nothing in this world, that is not the way to approach a girl Don't look, don't touch. Can't you see I'm a wreck, I would rather be dead Being a human being, leave me be, or I'll creep in while you're sleeping, fucking break your knees. Why do you think I care? I don't care. I just care when you're dead. Truth is, I never gave a fuck. Man, I'm worse than a guy, this is barely lust. You were sleeping, with a horses head in you bed, and you wished you were dead. Chorus It was something you said, Well, I cant remember, what you said But I wanted you dead. You give us all a bad name.

Say it I can 03:33
-LYRICS- You spend your life trying But you'll never make him happy So what you gonna buy him to buy time and dilly dally. Im seeing something in your eyes, have you been crying? Or is it too many years of this bitch whining? All this lying isn't worthy as a cover up, and no one's buying what you're selling when you're muddled up. You might as well leave and join the party, here's a double cup. Did no one ever tell you you aint lived until you try your luck? You can have it all if you could realise when enough's enough. Just fuck it all off, there's nothing wrong with giving up. No home, no job, but no idiots. No hopes, no loss, its easy as that. But that's inevitable and it will never happen You're getting drunk in love, soon turns to getting hammered. You're getting on it and it should of never happened, a little vodka and tonic. Lets make a tipsy sandwich. Because I'm causing too much damage man, I'm fucking famished. Chorus Take a look at look at this from where I stand I think you're getting sick of it like I am In the thick of it, never was my plan. Get rid of it quick, Say it, I can. You think this is it, It aint it. It's gonna get so much worse, before it gets better. You're fate is in the hands of any Tom, Dick or Harry, What about Gary? Gary's fucking weird. Why is Gary always fucking hanging round here? Your mind's wrong, you try not to worry. Why are you even in such a hurry? You need to stop right here, because, aint it lovely? Aint it so nice? Aint it better than your normal life? Your normal wife? Boring old cow, she's never down when you need her to get down, she aint around. You need to put the old cow down. Don't frown, its for the greater good. If I could do it for you, you know I would. You need to get out, people are without, They either pick you up, or they drag you down. How many times? How many nails in the coffin, until its your turn when the knackers yard's knocking? Cardiac arrest you'll be getting from the stress, if you don't give it a rest. You better put it to bed. Chorus Take a look at look at this from where I stand I think you're getting sick of it like I am In the thick of it, never was my plan. Get rid of it quick, Say it, I can.

-LYRICS- I ignored the torture, I've never forgiven me, I am my Father's daughter, he taught me how to be guilty. I see you aching, see you breaking, and my heart bleeds. My mind's tracing, you're waiting but I cant think. There aint distance, there's craters between you and me. Its time to call in those favours if we are to succeed. Or have you given up? You're so quick to quit. You've been down on your luck, but it don't suit you kid. Hell yeah, we're stuck in a rut but still fortunate. You've got food in your gut, your human rights, your funds. The more you got, the more you need, thats gotta be misery, Its all we see, cant you see we're worshipping the money? Its worrying, its happening, this place is never sunny. We're such cowards, dead flowers, they die in our misery. A tragedy on halloween, spooky stuffs happening. The stuff I've heard and what I've seen, its not a dream. Not a joke, not a fantasy, I'm not imagining its a killer the monotony. I ignored the torture, I've never forgiven me, I am my Father's daughter, he taught me how to be guilty. I paint a picture, it will bind your scripture, You can't stick to the facts, look at our habitat. I self combust, this sense of unjust cuts me deep. If I jump, will you take the leap? If I can prove to you concrete, you can't live and let live, Ironically, I cant share this message, just sonically, Cognitive dissonance, every sentence I speak, take with offence. Its no surprise, ego has no pride. We will never love our own kind, Exceptions, now and then. Withhold my right to defend, every last soul, till the bitter end. I think about you now and then, I cant pretend I know what happened to my friend, it is a story that will never end. I ignored the torture, I've never forgiven me, I am my Father's daughter, he taught me how to be guilty.

My Motto 04:01
-LYRICS- Who are we fooling? Whats this achieving? Nothing important Surreal, distorted, its so misleading. Nothing's a sure thing. Live for a living, thats my motto. Find more fun, work not much though. Write a lot of songs, play a lot of shows, meet a lot of people, keep the good ones close. On record i'm aggy, in life I'm zen. The key to being happy is a good outlet. When I'm sitting in my room, feeling really shit, I don't instead I write, make the most of it. I wanna have fun, I don't wanna be in love, I don't wanna be a slut, these extreme's are fucked up. Everyone's like choose, one or the other. Everyone's a judge, even your Mother. But I aint having it, you can keep guessing. You think you know, you don't know where this song's heading. Don't look back, don't look ahead, live for a second. We could all use a bit more freedom, don't you reckon? Who are we fooling? Whats this achieving? Nothing important Our day's are ruled by the sun, and we don't answer to any fucking one. I bust a lung with the words hanging on my tongue Life wasn't alway this fun. Wake and bake by the lake, take my self on a date, I'm always late. But I'm still gonna have my cake and eat it. You wont give a shit when you're sixx foot deep in the shit. How the fuck you gonna get out of it? We all do what we see fit. But you don't wanna end up how your folks did. Stay out in the sun a little while and get fucking toasted. You might as well make the most of it, cause when it comes to give up the goat, you'll have lived life, hanging by the throat. I'm dying in this town. What have you got with no dreams, a job that you hate, no self esteem. No, I don't see the harm in hoping. Nothing lasts forever I aint joking. Man does not live by bread alone, Who would you be without your big home? Do you even know who you are, without the fake nose, the cars and the credit cards. Do you look at the moon everyday? Did you look at the sky tonight, hey? Do you go outside, not to the gym. I dont mean a jog around the road you live in, I mean outside, its just you walking, somewhere nice, green with trees and free from everything, all the talking. Tell me what kind of thoughts then leak in. So introduce yourself, you don't know yourself. Take a brain break from the soul destroying wealth. Live a fucking little, loosen your belt, swap that newspaper for a poem, tell me what you felt. The men all wanna be the richest, the girls they try to prove that they are the sexiest. Competition's high, fully erected. No one treats anyone with any respect here. You drive a hardship you're stubborn, its no good that you're all good so fuck 'em Its one rule for you all of a sudden, there's only you two, you don't need this whole mansion. Oh I don't know, you live beyond your means, its not funny how money controls everything, you keep running before something really takes a hold of you, take a punt, take a chance on something new.

This is hell we are the creators mayhem makers squinting through a sea of spit inhale the hate breath its vapours society does not cater for you and me hold's no responsibility disappointed, to the wildness we flee have all natural instincts been far removed from me? drowning in a deep sleep the comfort strangles please consider every angle My eyes transfix I seek you out I am received with doubt wish someone could figure it out it's not a game this ignorance is pain can't sit on the fence at everyone's expense don't play dumb what have you done minted, the world must seem so rosy tinted where do you go to get your endless money printed take from the poor you're the right side of the law but what are you thinking? This is hell we are the creators
