Bad for Me 02:31
Bad For Me He’s bad for me but I want him like chocolate cake He’s bad for me but I want him so bad I ache I’ve tasted the blood of rejection and now I’m craving power like I used to crave protection La da da da La da da da da He entreated me despite my loyalties & then he cheated me of all I thought he’d be What is it that I really want To harness the beast or kill what haunts me La da da da La da da da da Till he’s mad for me or I’ve had all I can take Till he’s mad for me I just can’t see straight La da da da La da da da da How can I escape La da da da La da da da da How can I be brave?

Parachute 03:34
Parachute Morphine for my conscious Forgiveness for my lies For all that needs to live, something has to die You finally found out what you wanted but that doesn’t mean that’s what you’re going to get Can’t tell the Jekyll from the Hyde But it doesn’t change the facts Can’t see the present for the future Can’t tell this moment from the last Don’t want to be a sore loser when I find I can’t go back What kind of man would love me & support my dignity & if I need a parachute for the coming down It all comes down to me & as much as I’d like the assistance don’t want to lose my honesty Can’t see the present for the future Can’t tell this moment from the last Don’t want to be a sore loser when I find I can’t go back & I feel yes I feel When I feel your imposition & I lose when you lose but that wasn’t my intention Ohhhh nooooo! Can’t see the present for the future Can’t tell this moment from the last Don’t want to be a sore loser Don’t wanna hold myself back when I find I can’t go back Don’t want to settle No don’t want to settle

Element 03:50
Element Well rounded concerns pour from your mouth like rhetoric from a jar Expired outdated medicine from the dark ages of well meaning intentions Could you know Could you ever see that I would love you to love me here in my element Misfitted hand me down paradigms I bought from you The way kids always do No refund no return Why should I wear well that truth Why can’t I sell mine to you? Could you know it Could you ever see I would love you to love me here in my element Your shadow is long my spirit is wide There must be a place I don’t have to hide Tiptoe around your blue Out of my way for you Heart on sleeves stains, much to your chagrin Why should I pretend I’m spilling out again Gracefully thriving, finally more than dreaming Worthy of your praise, your pride, your bond I wish you could celebrate what you have grown The best part of you that caught on Whether you ever know or whether you ever see I will love you & be free here in my element Here in my element

The Queen of IDC The Queen of i don’t care is turning heads tonight If shes affected you know it’s her delight It doesn’t matter if you run she won’t fight That’s her mystery That’s her right Ohhh “Too honest to be angry I shoved him away, are you trying to make love to me? Why not? he said furiously jumping up & backing away to the door to make his exit, you go to bed with everyone else why not me?” That’s what she said That’s what she said The Queen of idc holds court here tonight If she’s affected it’s her delight It doesn’t matter if you run she won’t fight That’s her mystery That’s her right All dignity No self control Ah ah ha ah ha She won’t be needing you tonight Are you trying to make love to me That’s her mystery That’s what she said that’s what she said That’s what she said That’s her mystery That’s her right

Psyche 04:22
Psyche Psyche has spilled the hot wax on her lover She needs to be banned She needs to come crawling back on her knees Venus the goddess of love first needs to be pleased I am hoping you are driving carefully Even if you move like a saint sometimes I can’t see straight Caution if you’re acting strange I might have to pull back the reins Am I the standing we will see will I be a safe place for you to feel am I the real thing Will you be a safe place for me to grow? I’m remembering your sweet tears and I just don’t know Even if you think I’m a saint sometimes I can’t see straight caution if you’re changing lanes I might throw a curve in the rain Yeah Da da da da da da da Even if you think I’m a saint sometimes I can’t keep anything straight Caution if you’re acting strange I might throw a curve in the rain Yeah yeah yeah yeah sometimes I feel like a saint Like a saint sometimes I act like a child Sometimes I act like someone I don’t want to know sometimes I feel like someone worth trying for

Silhouette 04:20
Silhouette He steals his pleasure between dreams of someday treasure the color of sage He struggles silent insistently quiet with his neediness and rage & I want to reach out to expose his anger & then absorb him all at once give shelter to the stranger Shelter to the stranger Oh In his head, in my bed spite of all the books we’ve read You’d think that love would pay our debts after everything we meant But I’m burning bridges I’m troubled water I won’t grow now to save our love When I thought I would, you know I knew I could but now I’m not sure what’s to come Cause if I reach out to expose my anger I’ll have to fight the very things that I’ve been running from I’ve been running from Oh In his head in my bed in spite of all the books we’ve read You’d think that love would pay our debts after everything we meant Whose shadow is crowding us out? Might be mine Might be mine Oh In his head, in my bed spite of all the books we’ve read You’d think that love would pay our debts after all the time we spent (mine mine mine) oh In his head oh in my bed You’d think that love would pay our debts after all the time we spent Oh In his head in my bed You’d think that love would pay our debts after everything we meant But I can still see the silhouette of the stranger in my bed silhouette of the stranger in my bed

Plenty More 03:01
Plenty More You like the way that I hang on your every word But I can tell you’re wondering if my sweet intentions are pure I guess there’s no real way of knowing now how long this will last But theres plenty more Yeah there’s plenty more Plenty more where that came from there’s plenty more yeah there’s plenty more where you’re concerned You see I’ve got nothing to hide cause there’s no reason to pretend You seem to pick up where I leave off naturally where your take your turn Let’s just put to test these questions for as long as they last cause there’s plenty more Yeah there’s plenty more Plenty more where that came from there’s plenty more yeah there’s plenty more where you’re concerned plenty more Yeah there’s plenty more where that came from there’s plenty more yeah there’s plenty more where you’re concerned

Anytime, Anywhere Lately baby I’m seeing stars everywhere Ever since you hit me with your love It doesn’t take a genius to care but there’s no way around your Midas touch Anytime, anywhere the muses take us Let’s let love speak for itself We just might rise to the occasion Made a promise to myself for the future I swore that I would never forget Life’s too short to waste our time & our talent on a love that just doesn’t want to fit Anytime, anywhere the muses take us Let’s let love speak for itself On the path of least resistance we just might rise to the occasion Anytime, anywhere the muses take us Let’s let love speak for itself We just might rise to the occasion

Love at Bay 04:17
Love At Bay I told you I was complicated I told you there were no garentee’s I thought it was worth the risk but I didn’t know I would lose so much sleep I thought I shouldn’t try to fight it If it’s a game we both want to play I could see the red flags in the distance but I couldn’t see the pain, with all your beauty in the way Now I’m stepping back Keeping love away I learn the art of keeping myself away If you swim to shore thou It could go either way I’m keeping love at bay You said you were undecided Whatever was would be But every time you pull away I feel you taking another piece of me I still don’t know what you wanted & this is all so new to me You’re not much on talking & I don’t know the first thing about how things should be So I’m stepping back Keeping love away I learn the art of keeping myself away If you swim to shore thou It could go either way I’m keeping love at bay Even if you’re not down with falling in love Even if I am You won’t hear it from me But there’s a chance that you could be stalling for the possibility So I’m stepping back Keeping love away I learn the art of giving myself away If you swim to shore thou It could go either way I’m keeping love at bay I’m keeping love at bay I’m keeping love at bay

Bound To Happen Smell so sweet intoxicate me with your tone of voice Tease me with desire, talk in code & then avoid Tell you you’re too young for me at least that makes sense The end of our respectful roles Typecast by circumstance Drawn in by the dance This was bound to happen anyway Just another role I had to play Give me something to relieve the pain Tell me you didn’t love me This was bound to happen anyway I found an Irish clover back when I believed You with your Cajun superstition sacred mystery I saw you as the hero of a novel you designed I felt you there in all your glory I became intwined but you never knew my mind This was bound to happen anyway Just another role you had to play Give me something to relieve the pain Tell me you didn’t love me This was bound to happen anyway You never say a word You’d rather leave it in the hands of fate You never say a word When I ask you to give it to me straight This was bound to happen anyway Just a stupid role I had to play Give me something to relieve the pain Tell me you didn’t love me Tell me this was bound to happen anyway yeah Tell me you didn’t love me This was bound to happen anyway Tell me you didn’t love me This was bound to happen anyway this was This was bound to happen anyway

Because She Wants To She lets him take advantage of the silence so he doesn’t have to lie She lets him take advantage of her body & the reasons are implied Because she wants to If you see them out you’d never know he knew her name But still she lets him call her at 2 am just the same Because she wants to Because she wants to Because she wants to Because she wants to be surprised She wants to see the other side Surprise Surprise she’s on the other side The moral of the story is simple cause there’s no one here to blame She finds it’s what she doesn’t want that drives her to what it is that makes her change Because she wants to See the other side Because she wants to So she doesn’t to lie Because she wants to Because she wants to till she’s satisfied Because she wants to be be surprised

It's Over 03:00
It’s Over This is not my need no Just a taste of my dream If I could just transcend yes But it’s gotten under my skin It’s over it’s over it’s over It’s over By the time you get this thru your head It’s over it’s over it’s over You are not my fear no Just a symbol & a dare What about all of our ideas What about the way it feels What about the reverence What about our circumstance It’s over it’s over it’s over It’s over By the time you get this thru your head It’s over it’s over it’s over If you have to hide it’s time for change oh it’s time for change Ohhh oh oh oh It’s over It’s over it’s over it’s over It’s over By the time you get this thru your head It’s over By the time you get this thru your head It’s over it’s over it’s over

Afraid of Heights If you see her Tell her why You haven’t seen her in a while Throw her a line but Don’t get to too close if you’re afraid of heights She’ll say she love you every time there’s a chance you’ll fall There’s a chance you’ll fly You just might She will tell you It’s not fair To leave her so long in the air Stay if you date but Don’t get to too close if you’re afraid of heights She’ll say she love you every time there’s a chance you’ll fall There’s a chance you’ll fly You never know you think you won’t You just might You just might You can cross that bridge When you get to it Don’t get to too close if you’re afraid of heights She’ll say she loves you every time there’s a chance you’ll fall You might fly You never know you think you won’t but Well You just might Oh You just might Don’t get too close You just might Don’t get to close if you’re afraid of heights Don’t get to too close if you’re afraid of heights She’ll say she love you every time there’s a chance you’ll fall There’s a chance you’ll fly You just might She says she loves you every time She says she loves you every time She says she loves you
