Track Name: All Seeing
I am the one I am the all seeing
Meet me if you think that I'm not dreaming
If you want something you can believe in
I am the one I am the all seeing

Your thinking too much
Track Name: Vogue Model
He said I was a Vogue model
I said I didn't want to be that thin
He said "Lets got to Paris baby!"
I said "I don't want to go where I already been"

He said "You are a queen now"
I said "I don't believe in Monarchy"
He said "Just come with me now"
I said "I don't want to go where I already been!"

He said I was funny (Oh no he didn't)
Do I look like a clown? (Oh no he didn't)
He asked to come over (Oh no she didn't)
but I don't wanna be a Vogue model

She said I was a Vogue model
I said I didn't want to be that ripped
She said I could be on a magazine
I said "I don't think I'm all that hip"

She said "Let me take you out tonight!"
I said "I don't think this is gonna work out"
She said "How 'bout I turn out the light?'
I said "No way! I gotta get out!"

He said I was funny (Oh no he didn't)
Do I look like a clown? (Oh no he didn't)
He asked to come over (Oh no she didn't)
but I don't wanna be a Vogue model

V O G U E MODEL!
Track Name: Make Me A Failure
We pack our bags into littler boxes
before the sky gets darker, like that permanent marker

The clothes I lived in back in winter
balance in bags on top of your printer

Moving day
I'm I coming home ma, does that make me a failure?

I'll live out my suitcase till the final move
When you can hear the echo in my empty room

The car is heavy but we fill it up more
and the junk in the trunk's my favorite Dior

Moving day
I'm I coming home ma, does that make me a failure?
Track Name: How About You?
My Daddy is a Unionist
My Mamma is a Therapist
My Sister is an activist
My Brother is a music mystic
My Sister is a specialist
My Nieces heart is the biggest
My Nephews are the cheekiest

Grandparents were refugees of War
That's what I came here for
And that's where I come from..how about you?

La la la

My Daddy is a record collector
My Mammas always right, no need to correct her
My Sisters are both smart as Dexter
My Brothers are both future actors

Grandparents from all over the world
The world is my oyster, I live in a pearl
That's where I come from..how about you?

La la la

My Mama
My Daddy
My Sister
My Brother
And I, I'm just lucky to be alive

How about you?
Track Name: Stray
Baby's got a cigarette tucked in his ear
And I think I'm gonna love him by the end of the year
There's a man on the beach trying to drown himself
While your mouth tastes like some seawater shells

Baby's jeans are ripped but they still look good
We're made out of water sitting on a piece of driftwood
If we never have money, well at least we got here
With a view and a cigarette behind my ear

I'm right, I'm wrong, I stray for days
I like it when you say my name
I love, I hurt, You hurt me back
I think I'll have a heart attack

Baby took my coat but I still feel warm
And I think I'm gonna kill him by the end of the dawn
There's a girl in my head trying to drown herself
And you tell me you think there's somebody else

Baby looks cute, man you gotta see her
She's a natural born killer and she's from Korea
But we'll never be together, it's a crazy world
I'm head over heels for my best friend's girl

You've been out for days
I like you

I'm right, I'm wrong, I stray for days
I like it when you say my name
I love, I hurt, You hurt me back
I think I'll have a heart attack
Track Name: Maybe Someday (I'll Have A Friend)
Throw me some meat, I'm sick of the bone
Make up my make up, leave insecurities home
I called her a lot, she said "What am I, fat?"
I said "You don't get babe", and she left me like that
Majestic down a firepole, this volunteer's a stripper
He's fire retarded, he can't stand double dippers
Got a collection of zippers, I booked a conjucal visit
For a valentines date, I said "You think I want sex? I got Jail bait."

The weather is fine
My clothes on the line
I'm doing some time
The pleasure is mine

Smoking isn't bad, it's just ideology
My passions lie in art, but I study biology
My friend thinks with his dick, he needs a rectal lobotomy
I'm a fan of the Beatles, and also full-time monogamy
She said it twice, I don't accept her apology
Said it's all in your head, I said "You think I need you? I got a single bed".

The weather is fine
My clothes on the line
I'm doing some time
The pleasure is mine

I met a guy named Jack, he got himself a Cadillac
And he lacked what I lacked, and I liked what he liked
I cut him slack, but I would never take the fucker back
Cause he was made of wax, worse than that he wanted me to wax
And he whacked me on the ass, and I whacked him on the head
And I kicked him out the door when he try put me to bed

Maybe someday I'll have a friend
But for now I think I'm better off dead
dead
dead
dead
Track Name: Female Masturbation
I don't know, I'm feeling low
Is it just me or do all of them blow?

I stroke your ego like your feathers shine
Well baby you got yours and I got mine

I don't need you cause baby I got my hands
You put me down your just an ungrateful man
You can't please me or any other women
We don't need you when there's no chance of cumming
Anyway, baby I got my..

When you walked in the room with just your t-shirt on
I said you look nice but you didn't look at me twice
I don't need that shit in my life
You ain't that great so don't get cocky
and don't come crawling when I don't call you back

I don't need you cause baby I got my hands
You put me down your just an ungrateful man
You can't please me or any other women
We don't need you when there's no chance of cumming
Anyway, baby I got my..

I don't need you cause baby I got my hands
You put me down your just an ungrateful man
Track Name: Tracey
Walk down the street
It's you I wanna meet
I woke you up
and then I put you to sleep

You lead me astray
and then you called me a sheep
I woke you up
and then I put you to sleep

Won't you meet me Tracey?
I 'll never leave you baby
They can try but they can't make me
I'll never leave ya

Open up deceased
You make my heart bleed
Draw up a lung
It's getting hard to breathe

You brought me an ashtray
and then you told me to quit
You walked away
and then you told me to sit

Won't you meet me Tracey?
I 'll never leave you baby
They can try but they can't make me
I'll never leave ya

I don't wanna be civil
I don't wanna be cool
I don't wanna be civil with anyone like you

Oh Tracey, trace me
Oh Tracey, chase me
Track Name: Isla-Mae
Where are you?
Baby blue, baby blue
I'm waiting here in Wellington
but what is there to do?

and I'll swim and I'll swim and I'll swim and I'll swim
deep deep blue

Isla-Mae
Isla-Mae
May I? May I? May I Isla-Mae?

I've been down here
I've been working hard
But you know I'd do anything to make you proud

and I'll swim and I'll swim and I'll swim and I'll swim
deep deep blue

Isla-Mae
Isla-Mae
May I? May I? May I Isla-Mae?
Track Name: Keeps Me Sane (Nobody Cares)
When I'm alone and I'm at home
I play a song
I write my way to other worlds
and your not there

I can imagine anything
when I sing
My guitar is the very thing
that keeps me sane..

Keeps me sane
so I won't make the same mistakes as yesterday
Keeps me alive
Gives me drive
Makes me vibe
I guess I'm just a nobody, nobody cares
(I don't know what to see maybe I'm color blind)
Track Name: Don't Complain
I have to go to work at 8 every morning
I have to ride my bike cause you took the car in
My back is sore from the weight on my shoulders
Maybe it would stop if you quit shifting boulders

I don't know about this what do you think?
All you ever do is drink
Never get a job cause this is what you will get
I lay awake at night hoping I could forget
Don't complain (he said)
Don't complain (she said)
Don't complain to me
