BROKEN ANGEL

Broken angel / porcelain skin / fallen to pieces / again and again/ they wouldn’t let you live 2x / broken angel / a bottle of glue / can’t fix the cracks/ deep inside of you / they wouldn’t let you live 2x / broken angel / porcelain skin / how do you fly / with your porcelain wings / they wouldn’t let you live 8x

CAN’T BREAK ME

I know you loved to see me / down on my knees / I know you loved to see me / begging you please / you can’t break me / you can’t bring me down / you can’t break me / you can’t break me now

COME BACK

Forget about the sleeping pills / and the nights out on the hills / it doesn’t mean that we’re no good / forget about the kitchen knife / and the sorrow in my eyes / don’t go and tell the neighborhood / yeah, it’s hard to trace back / where we lost the thread / I’m waiting for you to come back / come back / I’m sorry about the broken frames / and the times I called you names / it’s just that I was scared back then / and now that all the colors fade / I can see who we impersonate / why don’t you come back again / yeah, it’s hard to trace back / where we lost the thread / I’m waiting for you to come back / come back / in the morning heat / I can find no sleep / so come crawling under my sheets / come back / I am missing you just as much as I was missing myself back then

FAKE A SMILE

She says: I can see right through you / I can read what’s on your mind / she says: I know you’re in trouble / even when you fake a smile / So don’t fake a smile / don’t fake a smile / don’t say you’re fine / don’t say you’re fine / she says: I can see right through you / so don’t you tell me no lie / she says: I can see your sadness / when I look into your eyes / So don’t fake a smile / don’t fake a smile / don’t say you’re fine / don’t say you’re fine / when you’re lost I’ll pick up 4x / Don’t fake a smile / don’t fake a smile / don’t say you’re fine / don’t say you’re fine

FISHBOWL LIFE

Everyday they stare at you for no particular reason / and when you close your eyes it’s like you still can feel them / you got no privacy they all can see when you’re dreamin‘ / and when they tell you that it’s not true you better don’t believe them / you got a fishbowl life / all day and all night / the world is looking inside / what a fishbowl life / all day and all night / why don’t you mind / no matter where you go they already know your destination / so it’s no surprise your inner life is given no vacation / you got a fishbowl life / all day and all night / the world is looking inside / what a fishbowl life / all day and all night / why don’t you mind / don’t try to run / you cannot hide / it’s just a waste of time / they will find you anyway / you got a fishbowl life / all day and all night / the world is looking inside / what a fishbowl life / all day and all night / why don’t you mind /

IN REVERSE

There comes a time when you don’t fight no more / when you lay down your weapons and make peace / there comes a time when you unlock the door / make friend with all your enemies / there comes a time when you forgive yourself / when you don’t blame yourself no more / there comes a time when you can love yourself / so go unlock your inner door / here is your life in reverse / watch it roll from death to birth / don’t you think it could be worse / forgive yourself / there comes a time when you don’t feel anxious no more / when you leave your demons far behind / there comes a time when you don’t worry no more / so go and ease your troubled mind / here is your life in reverse / watch it roll from death to birth / don’t you think it could be worse / forgive yourself

MY ROBOT HEART

My robot heart / it always remembers / my robot heart / it never surrenders / I sleep with your ghost / I sleep with your ghost / ‚cause my robot heart / it can’t let you go / my robot heart / cables and wires / that glow in the dark / like a lighthouse on fire / I still sing your name / I sing your name / wherever I go / I still sing your name / sittin‘ around waiting for another nervous breakdown / counting the hours ‚til I hit the ground / I always felt you like some kind of home / you always knew I was bound to be alone / my robot heart / it never fails me / it works over-time / ‚til it finally kills me / will I see you again / will I see you again / can I call you a friend / when I see you again / sittin‘ around waiting for another nervous breakdown / counting the hours ‚til I hit the ground / I always felt you like some kind of home / you always knew I was bound to be alone

NEW YEAR’S EVE

Here’s a picture of myself / dressed up like somebody else / here’s a way to clear my throat / here’s the new year grab your coat / there’s a song on the radio / a song by grant-lee buffalo / watch me driving through the rain / monday morning here we go/ in the near future this all will be gone / here’s the pain you can’t deny / here’s a way to say good bye / one more drink before I’m gone / future’s here the party’s on / in the near future this all will be gone

PILLOWS FOR SOULS

There’s a man / a bottle in his hands / sitting on a bench / at the corner of the street / and I have heard / when the weather gets worse / he walks into a church / to lay himself to sleep / you should see / him walking ‚cross the street / he doesn’t care about the speed / of the cars passing by / here’s the news / you can’t find no truth / in a bottle of booze / no matter how hard you try / why don’t they sell / pillows for souls / hearts as heavy as stones / so they can rest / all of us need / some place to go / a place to call home / when nothing else is left / why don’t they sell / pillows for souls / she sits down / on the cold concrete ground / somewhere around town / with her suitcase and her bags / and every day / she prays for the rain / to come and wash away / the smell of ammoniac / why don’t they sell / pillows for souls / hearts as heavy as stones / so they can rest / all of us need / some place to go / a place to call home / when nothing else is left / why don’t they sell / pillows for souls

RUN

Mind strikes again / middle of nowhere / we agree when we’re wrong / the party is over / give me time to sleep / give me light or a fire / we’re no strangers / in this place called desire / run away 4x / picture your face / middle of nowhere / feel your teeth on my tongue / we need to go somewhere / I rise when you drown / you wake from your slumber / let’s call it an exercise / I don’t need you mantra / run away 8x

STOLEN SHOPPING CARTS

Changing the channels / lighting the candles / trying to kill some time / talking to myself / when there’s no one else / to call a friend of mine / I dream of stolen shopping carts / and ways to catch a fallen star / I dream of stolen shopping carts / so here we are in the getaway car / watching commercials / running in circles / another day goes by / shadow boxing / tossing and turning / another sleepless night / I dream of stolen shopping carts / and ways to catch a fallen star / I dream of stolen shopping carts / so here we are in the getaway car / am I falling? 4x / I dream of stolen shopping carts / and ways to catch a fallen star / I dream of stolen shopping carts / so here we are in the getaway car

STUPID SCIENCE

Angels come down and pick me up / I’m a serious case of being lost / angels you gotta hurry up / ‚cause I’m a fast train not knowing how to stop / it’s stupid science 4x / angels I’m calling out to you / I am so afraid I don’t know what to do / angels I’m waiting here for you / won’t you pick me up and take me some place new / it’s stupid science 4x / sharks are circling / but I’m not dead yet / I’m just out of my head / it’s stupid science 8x
