Track Name: Lilac Girl
Ooh, It's in the air
Came in like the spring
Hey, you know who I am
Hear the red robin sing

I am the lilac girl
I visit you tonight
So stop and smell the flowers
In the purple light

I am the lilac girl
I linger in your room
You know this flower baby
A strange perfume

Ooh, I'm coming nearer
And I feel your energy
Hey, you know who I am
You give your love to me

I am the lilac girl
I visit you tonight
So stop and smell the flowers
In the purple light

I am the lilac girl
I linger in your room
You know this flower baby
A strange night bloom
Track Name: Freak
Hey mister why ya staring at me?
Do I make you feel a little uneasy?
I'm a little nice
A little bit sleazy
I'm the weirdo that you don't know

Freak

I'm a freak

You're not turning
You're not looking away
You tell your friends that I'm probably gay
I don't give a shit about you
No way
I'm the weirdo that you don't know

Freak

I'm a freak

I like to express myself today
Be myself, and hey
I'm not like you
So you make fun of me
It's plain to see that I'm not plain

Hey mister did you tell all your friends?
That I'm the stranger where the fun never ends
You can stare at me and my fashion trends
I'm the weirdo that you don't know

Freak

I'm a freak

While your having fun at my expense
You should realize it makes perfect sense
You're so boring
So I'm so intense
I'm the weirdo that you don't know

Freak

I'm a freak

I like to express myself today
Be myself, and hey
I'm not like you
So you make fun of me
It's plain to see that I'm not plain
Track Name: Take Me
Take me to a room
And fuck me 'til I'm senseless
I don't want to feel the world today
Take me to the picture
Take me to the show
I don't wanna know
Anything but laughter

You and me over the ocean
Like the sea
Rocking in motion
Far away
Sinking in pleasure
Happiness, no one can measure

Make me smile again
Tickle me inside
Make me forget the things
I have to hide
Show me a good time
I've been working hard
Keeping it in line
Wanna spend some time
Oh, rock me!

You and me over the ocean
Like the sea
Rocking in motion
Far away
Sinking in pleasure
Happiness, no one can measure

Give me what ya got
You know I need you bad
Whisper it to me
Undo the sad
Show me the picture
I want to see
Under the water
Get wet with me
Track Name: You Really Suck
You're looking out for number one
At the starting line
You jumped the gun
Trampled on your friends
You trampled on me
I hope to God
That someday you will see

That you suck
It's no joke
You hold the pitchfork
And you constantly poke
You really suck
Your potently lame

You really suck!

You're the angry boss
Who let a worker go
Because he accidentally stepped on your toe
There's no such thing as letting go
In your world everything's a show

You're in the tow truck
You passed the broken down
Sadism with a smile
Your motto's upside down
I just don't understand the plan
But then again
I'm not "The Man"

Oh
You suck
It's no joke
You hold the pitchfork
And you constantly poke
You really suck
You're potently lame

You really suck!

Bulldoggy big dog
Bulldozing your world
And yet you whine
Just like a spoiled little girl
Somebody ought to pull your chain
And tie you to a tree
Where you can't complain

Just when the light turns green
Sitting in your machine
Pounding your horn
Like it's something long and mean
"Don't touch the suit, it's just been cleaned"
Oh you're the big man on the tanning bed scene

Oh
You suck
It's no joke
You hold the pitchfork
And you constantly poke
You really suck
You're potently lame

You really suck!
Track Name: The Devil Made Me Do It
He sits in a room, dabbling with doom
Playing with a force that's so unknown
He's playing with your mind
I know about his kind
He'll call you on his "telephone"

The devil made me do it
He made me do it
I had nothing to do
I've nothing to do with it
The devil made me do this to you
Oh, he made me do it
You know he made me

He's talking in his sleep
He made me do it
He wants to hear you weep
I've nothing to do with it
He said the devil made me do it
Oh, he made me do it
You know he made me

Sticks and stones will break your bones
And names can hurt you
You don't want to find out why
For if you ever do
He'll have a hold on you
This boy will always make you cry

Needles and pins
You walk with aching limbs
You stumble to the ground and hear his voice

The devil made me do it
He made me do it
I had nothing to do
I've nothing to do with it
The devil made me do this to you
Oh, he made me do it
You know he made me

He's talking in his sleep
He made me do it
He wants to hear you weep
I've nothing to do with it
He said the devil made me do it
Oh, he made me do it
You know he made me
Track Name: Shiny Red Car
A red car was speeding by
It caught my eye
I love the way they shine
Mirroring the light

Cherry lollipop delight
It is so right
Red cherry sliding down
The flavor of tonight

Red lips parting, pout your name
I'm not the same
Red liquid lolli
I'm your dolly
Kiss my face

Red hot, running down my spine
The fever line
Is slowly melting sugar
All over the place

Oh how you make me feel
It's so surreal
In the back of the red car
Our little secret
In the back of my mind

The red knobs, and buttons too
I ride with you
Out of my window
See the sunset sky

Cherry sweet and sticky things
Licorice strings
Red shiny cellophane
Sticking to my thigh

Oh you are my candy boy
My dandy boy
you drive me better
Than anyone around

50-60-70
I feel so free
Your here with me, baby
Turn up the sound

Oh how you make me feel
It's so surreal
In the back of the red car
Our little secret
In the back of my mind
Track Name: Vertigogo
You've got a certain smile
You've got charisma to the hilt
You turned me upside down again
You've got a mischievous tilt

Vertigo a go-go, baby
Verti go go go
Zip my go-go boots up
Nice and slow

The lights are spinning in rhythm
The fog is rolling in fast
I like electric blue visions
I want this moment to last

Vertigo a go-go, baby
Verti go go go
Zip my go-go boots up
Nice and slow

Vertigo a go go, baby
Verti go go go
Track Name: Mr. H
Down at the tent
Or vacant warehouse lot
Spaced out on synthetic blot

You can't hear yourself think
You can't hear yourself scream
Staring at the colors of your insular dream

You don't realise
They like it this way
They don't want you to think
Keeping you happy
Watching you blink
Falling into the hands of the mind-melt pusher

Peace, love, and happiness
Is what they say they sell
But that's bullshit a mile away, and I can smell

Don't swallow it baby, hook, line, and sinker
Just pull yourself up before you sink deeper

Oh no, it's Mr. H

Laser heights
Brain dead nights
35 thousand bags of shit
Stay the Hell away from it

Oh no, it's Mr. H
Track Name: Home
There is a night I never will forget
A memory that time won't melt away
A shadow of a figure in a doorway
That led me to another day

It's hard to look away
As your going astray
Burning road beneath my wheels

You better pray

It's hard to look away
As your going astray
Burning road beneath my wheels

You better pray

A night like no other
Who was that standing in the door
I viewed the faceless face
As a trembling basket case
Don't wanna feel that way no more

It's hard to look away
As your going astray
Burning road beneath my wheels

You better pray

I don't miss home
Track Name: Bad Weather
You'd better brace yourself
The winds a coming through
The drought of thought is near
And it feeds off of you

Bad weather's knocking down the door of your hotel
You spin inside the dust bowl
The bellboy's ringing all the bells

Invisible horns
An invisible head
Like a bull will mow you down
You fought hard to keep it at bay
Now it's ripping through your town

To tear the hair from the back of your neck
Kick dirt into your face
Get the hell out of the way
It's stirring up the place

Bad weather's coming
To make badlands of your mind
It's gonna rip you up
And leave you far behind

Bad weather's coming
To cleanse your words
The mind tornadoes coming
There go the birds

You'd better brace yourself
The winds a coming through
The drought of thought is near
And it feeds off of you

Bad weather's knocking down the door of your hotel
You spin inside the dust bowl
The bellboy's ringing all the bells
Track Name: I Love You (We're Evil Now)
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you, I love you
We're evil now, I love you

Are we evil?
Track Name: Flame
My love you glow today
With all the warmth of the sun
The planets spin around in space
And you're my golden one

Everything's so beautiful
About you dear
I am so fortunate
To have you near

My love you are the heat
That warms the frozen soul
You set my soul on fire
A burning lust out of control

Feel the passion
On the windowpane
Streaming down
Just like the rain

Feel the heat of the yearning flame
Feel it burning away
My hands are warm
Our hearts are one
Dance with me under the sun
Track Name: Wake Up
In a corner
By the corner store
He don't live here anymore

Enough is enough
Wake up
Unroll your cuff
Wake up
They'll take your mind
Wake up
Open the blind

He is losing
Shards of glass
Lost his smile
Lost his past

Enough is enough
Wake up
Unroll your cuff
Wake up
They'll take your mind
Wake up
Open the blind

His vision
Thrown in the can
He is waiting
For the man

Enough is enough
Wake up
Unroll your cuff
Wake up
They'll take your mind
Wake up
Open the blind

Wake up...
Track Name: Hope Springs Nocturnal
He takes her hand
And spins her round
The dance floor
No boundaries

Hand in hand
Eye to eye
The colors swirl
In this dream

The ballroom spins
Every things hazy
She's not lazy
Tonight
The world feels right
The world feels right
Tonight

Hope springs nocturnal
The sun is set
And I'm ready to go
He said
Hope springs nocturnal
The moon is round
Like an orange ball

She looks at him
Across the room
And calls him
To her lips

She can't resist
His charm
His face is painted
With the mysteries
Of the night
Of the dark
Lips so red
Eyes so green

I want you she said
I want you
I cant resist
Your twisted head

Hope springs nocturnal
The sun is set
And I'm ready to go he said
Hope springs nocturnal
The moon is round
Like an orange Ball

Hope springs nocturnal
The sun is set
And I'm ready to go he said
Hope springs nocturnal
The moon is round
Like an orange Ball
For the orange ball
Track Name: Blind
You took it all away from me
But you won't win

Took your nail and drove it in
But you won't win

Took madness to a higher degree
You held the glasses
But you still couldn't see
There is someone
You wish you could be
But you won't win

Everyone has left my side
But you wont win

You almost took all of my pride
But you won't win

You left me up in the sky
You didn't stop
To wipe the tears from my eyes
You don't have an alibi
And you wont win

It wasn't meant to be
I was blind and you couldn't see

Took madness
To a higher degree

You held the glasses
But you still couldn't see

There is someone
You wish you could be
But you wont win

You left me high and dry
You didn't stop
To wipe the tears from my eyes

You don't have an alibi, and you won't win
