Bleed Like Me

Bad Boyfriend

I've got a fever
Come check it and see
There's something burning and rolling in me
We may not last but we'll have fun till it ends
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

I wanna hear you call out my name
I wanna see you burn up in flames
Keep you on ice so I can show all my friends
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

So ripe so sweet come suck it and see
But watch out Daddy I sting like a bee
I know some tricks I swear will give you the bends
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

My fever's rising you ran into luck
Say what sugar
You wanna get what?
I'm wanna give you one hundred and ten
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend

It's wild the way you tease me
It's wild the way you free me
It's wild the way you reach me
Wrapped me up in your wire from the start

You've got the women waiting in line
I'm not asking you to make up your mind
I can make you happy at least now and then
I've got something special for my bad boyfriend

If you can't love me honey go on just pretend
I've saved something special for the very end
If you can't love me honey go on just pretend
C'mon baby be my bad boyfriend
Oh c’mon baby be my bad boyfriend
C’mon baby be my bad boyfriend
C’mon baby be my bad boyfriend
Oh c’mon baby be my bad boyfriend

Sex is Not the Enemy

No evolution
Sometimes it depresses me
The same old same old
We keep repeating history
The institution curses curiosity
It's our conviction
Sex is not the enemy

A revolution
Is the solution
A revolution
Is the solution

I don't feel guilty
No matter what they're telling me
I won't feel dirty and buy into their misery
I won't be shamed cause I believe that love is free
It fuels the heart and sex is not my enemy

A revolution
Is the solution
A revolution
Is the solution

True love’s like gold
There's not enough to go around
But then there's God and doesn't God love everyone?
Give me a choice
Give me a chance to turn the key and find my voice
Sex is not the enemy

A revolution
Is the solution
A revolution
Is the solution
Sex is not the enemy
A revolution

Run Baby Run

Love can be so strange
Don't it amaze you?
Every time you give yourself away
It comes back to haunt you
Love's an elusive charm and it can be painful
To understand this crazy world
But you're not gonna crack
No you're never gonna crack

Run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
Too late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run

Life can be so cruel
Don't it astound you?
When nothing seems certain or safe
Let it burn through you
You can keep it pure on the inside
And you know what you believe to be right
So you're not gonna crack
No you're never gonna crack

Run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
Too late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run

Find out who you are before you regret it
Cause life is so short there's no time to waste it

Run my baby run my baby run
Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun
Too late for solutions to solve in the setting sun
So run my baby run my baby run

Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on
Run my baby run my baby run
Go on

It's All Over But the Crying

Everything you think you know baby
Is wrong
And everything you think you had baby
Is gone

Certain things turn ugly when you think too hard
And nagging little thoughts change into things you can't turn off
Everything you think you know baby
Is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Do you really think I'm made of stone baby?
C'mon
That we only love the things we own?
Baby you're wrong

Certain things just happen when you make no plans
And love can really tear you up and it can break you down
Everything you think you know baby
Is wrong

It's all over but the crying
Fade to black I'm sick of trying
Took too much and now I'm done
It's all over but the crying

Baby we're done
If I could I would
I'd change everything
Cause I can't forget you though you don't believe me
Now I can't walk back
I can't leave behind
Where does it go
All the light that we had?

Everything you think you know baby
Is wrong
And everything you think you had baby
Is gone
Oh baby we're done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Oh baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Baby we’re done
Oh baby’ we’re done

Right Between the Eyes

Don't care what they have to say
No point in listening to them anyway
Why did you have to give them what they want?
They love to watch you as you fall apart

Stick it to them like a phoenix rises
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes

Seek to destroy cause they're scared of you
That's why they try to make a fool of you
They're so jealous of my pretty star
Cause you've got soul inside your shattered heart

Stick it to them like a phoenix rises
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes

And you've been waiting all your life
To fly high into somebody else
And it's true it's a cruel, cruel world
Life's a bitch and then you die my love

Don't care what they have to say
You shouldn't listen to them anyway

Stick it to them like a phoenix rises
There's nothing grander than the big surprise
They can't hurt you with their sticks and stones
About time take them right between the eyes
Right between the eyes
Right between the eyes
Right between the eyes

People like to build you up
Then they'll stab you in the back like that
You know it breaks my heart
Can't see you going out like that

Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love
Stay alive my love

Boys Wanna Fight

The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight
The boys wanna fight

But the girls are happy to dance all night

They know best how they can mess with us
Nursing an opinion's getting dangerous
And in a world where good's not good enough
Let's get loaded and kick up a fuss

The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
Is there anybody else?
Anybody else
Is there anybody else?

What a mess we've made
It's ridiculous
The whole wide world's a stage of complete chaos
It gets so funny that we get confused
We don't know where to turn cause we've all been used

The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
Is there anybody else?
Anybody else
Is there anybody else?

Let's get loaded (oh let's be selfish)
Let's get wasted (and lose our senses)
Let's get shit faced (so we can fake it)
Let's get stupid (just entertain us)
Let's get wicked (desensitize us)
Let's get toasted (don't educate us)
Let's get hammered (yeah paralyze us)
Let's forget it (don't count on all )

The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night
The boys wanna fight
But the girls are happy to dance all night

Sick sick sick of saying nothing

I'm sick sick sick of saying nothing
So let's get loaded

The boys wanna fight

Why Do You Love Me

I'm no Barbie doll
I'm not your baby girl
I've done ugly things
I have made mistakes
And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines
I am rotten to my core if they're to be believed
So what if I'm no baby bird hanging upon your every word
Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me

You're not some little boy
Why you acting so surprised?
You're sick of all the rules
Well I'm sick of all your lies
Now I've held back a wealth of shit
I think I'm gonna choke
I'm standing in the shadows
With the words stuck in my throat
Does it really come as a surprise
When I tell you I don't feel good
Nothing ever came from nothing, man
Oh, man, ain't that the truth

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy
Why do you love me
Why do you love me

I get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it
Do it again

I think you're sleeping with a friend of mine
I have no proof
But I think that I'm right
You still got the most beautiful face
It just makes me sad
Most of the time

I get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it again
Get back up and I do it
Do it again
Do it again
Do it again
Do it again

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
It's driving me crazy

Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me
Why do you love me

Why Don't You Come Over

It's been a crazy time for us,
Of pushing all our limits
Snapping necks and breaking balls
And you'd have done the same
You were baking biscuits
While I went bent the law
Sacrificing something
As you counted all my flaws

Why don't you come over?
So why don't you come over?
Oh why don't you come over?
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
And walk in my shoes

You wanna live freely,
Don't wanna die
You want it,
You got it,
You chase a high
You wanna be out there,
You wanna race
You wanna take over,
Just gotta play

Why don't you come over?
So why don't you come over?
Oh why don't you come over?
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
And walk in my shoes

Well I'm a good person,
Don't wanna fight with no one
But you piss me off,
You keep pushing pushing
You best step off the gas boy,
All bets are off
Fuck you
You taste like toxic poison,
I'll wash my hands of you

Why don't you come over?
So why don't you come over?
Oh why don't you come over
So why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
So why don’t you come over
And walk in my shoes
Ha ha
Walk in my shoes
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you come over
Why don’t you cut it

Bleed Like Me

Avalanche is sullen and too thin
She starves herself to rid herself of sin
And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin
And she says
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me

Chris is all dressed up and acting coy
Painted like a brand new Christmas toy
He's trying to figure out if he's a girl or he's a boy
And he says
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me

Doodle takes Dad's scissors to her skin
And when she does relief comes setting in
While she hides the scars
She's making underneath her pretty clothes
She sings
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
C'mon baby can you bleed like me

Therapy is Speedie's brand new drug
Dancing with the devil's past has never been too fun
It's better off than trying to take a bullet from a gun
And she cries
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
Oh c'mon baby can you bleed like me

JT gets all fucked up in some karaoke bar
After two drinks he's a loser after three drinks he's a star
Getting all nostalgic as he sings "I Will Survive"
Hey baby can you bleed like me?
Oh c'mon baby can you bleed like me
Hey baby can you bleed like me
Oh c’mon baby can you bleed like me

You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
And try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
Just try to comprehend that which you'll never comprehend
Try to comprehend that which you’ll never comprehend
You should see my scars
You should see my scars
You should see my scars

Happy Home

In my happy home I barely breathe
In my lover’s arms I find relief
And there's a sky that's changing and a bird that sings
I never once in my wayward life was heading to run out

In my lover’s arms I wait for morning
I beg my God to speak and tear me apart
I'd lay down my body I'd lay down my arms
I never once in my sweet short life meant anybody harm
Ah, ah

In my happy home I read the signs
In my lover’s arms I move in time
There's no more crying and there's no more lies
I never once in my sweet short life was waiting for desire
Ah, ah

And there's no more crying
And there's no more pain
I never thought for one second I'd have nothing left but shame
Ah, ah
Ah, ah

In my happy home I barely breathe
I never once in my wayward life was heading to run out

Metal Heart

I wish I had a metal heart
I could cross the line
I wish I was half as good
As you think I am

Now that we know for sure
They're telling lies
When they say no one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round

I wish I was as big as you
You'd have to tell the truth
I'd be nothing you could hurt
Nothing you could use

Now that we know for sure
They're telling lies
When they say no one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round
The world is round

I want to be dependable
I want to be courageous and good
I want to be faithful so that I can be heroic and true
I want to be your friend you can rely on
You can lean on and trust
I want to understand so I can forgive
And be willing to love

I wish I wasn't flesh and blood
I would not be scared
Of bullets bent with me in mind
Then I could be saved

My sweet lord, take care of me for I think I'm done
Kiss my mother on her cheek
Lay my burden down
Lay my burden down

Now that we know for sure
They're telling lies
When they say no one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies
You know it's hard to believe anything that you hear
They say the world is round
The world is round
The world is round
The world is round
