Track Name: Track 1
I’ll let you have your way today
Much to my disdain,
‘Cause I thrive on sunlight
While you love the rain,
And we could stand to understand
Each other’s point of view
Good luck with that
We’ll turn our backs
I’ll smile and say “fuck you!”
Fuck you!

I can’t look you in the eye
If I did, I’d cry
But I knew you’d see through
My poor disguise
So we could hold our breath
And say “I’m sorry, I love you”
Well fuck that, I can’t relax
I’m gone
I won’t come back
I can’t go back!
Track Name: Alien
Atashi wa nikko to yume no ko!!!!
Shikashi, atashi wa nami mi tai!!!!

All kids clamp on jump rope heartstrings
Shaky fingers, sweaty-pink with play
Three-eyed child, mild and smiling
Likes to dance in a way that don’t seem okay

But oooh, she’s growin’ up so strong
Woooah, she’s so high on her throne
You can’t hear the sounds of the ocean
When you’re so damn high up in the clouds!!!

Atashi wa nikko to yume no ko!!!!
Shikashi, atashi wa nami mi tai!!!!
Atashi wa nikko to yume no ko!!!!
Shikashi, atashi wa nami mi tai!!!!

Alien pastries; I want to eat them all!
Show some restraint; NO ONE CAN EAT THEM ALL
Adults cry when they can’t get what they want
But I don’t cry when I can’t be what I’m not.

'Cause oooh, we are tied up in splendor
Woooah, IS THAT SO BAD?
Meet your maker, meet your contender;
Meet who you are before you bloom.

Giddily skip down rainbow road and see!
I’ll let you tell me that art is my soul!!!
Fucking up is a sweeter road ya see!
There’s no such way to stay my soul!!!!

DAAA DAAA
NA NA NA NA NANANANA NA NA
Track Name: Teke-Teke
t’ke t’ke t’ke…

Mischief-maker,
I will make you afraid of me
As I was of you

Scratches on the concrete
Shadowlands of the streets
I am the lordess in corner lights

You’ll meet me on a locomotive machiiine

Oohhh noooo noooo
I won’t let you go!!!!

There’s a blood-willow
Dancin’ in all of our dreams
I’m coming and I’m taking you with me

I know you’ll come crawlin’,
Skitter on next to me, baby
Let me take your hand

Oh truly,
you’re not so cruel as them
“half-girl”, they called me!!!....

Ooohh, no, no
Not by... Not by you!

I see you,
You don’t see me

t’ke t’ke t’ke….
Track Name: Locusts
How’d they get so high?
Shimmering lightning rainbows
How’d they get so high?
Locusts in the sky

They’re tapping on my window…

A storm nears, rumbling,
Raindrops and see-through wings
Seeking out a mate who sings
Earth’s many eyes…

How’d they get so high?
Who are they really, the shadows filling the summer sky?
How did they get so high?
We’re locusts in the sky…

They’re tapping on my windows…
You’re tapping on my windows…

A storm nears, rumbling,
Raindrops and see-through wings
Seeking out a mate who sings
Earth’s many eyes

Chitter chatter the world begins to shatter and you'll kiss me in the rain
Chitter Chatter the world begins to shatter and I'll kiss your little brain
Track Name: Power-Creep
I can’t drink milk without lactase
I play Gameboy in bed all day
I can drink you ‘cause you love me
And we can play games in bed for free

POWER CREEP!

power
power creep
power
power creep

power
power creep
power
power creep
Track Name: Birdgirl
I am a bird;
Nothing is more delicate than little bones
My voice,
A shrill of souls-
That you trapped in a tiny box
I will scream
And I will grow
My talons sharp but you won’t know-
I know
You won’t know
you won’t know
you won’t know-
oh!
I SLEEP!

I love you, you love me too...
