Track Name: You Can Take My Collar Off
From the ears on my head,
to the tip of my tail,
You make my hair stand up.
You really ring my bell
You say your little tiny words
With your big wet lips
You put your big boy hands
On my rosewood hips.
You can take my collar off, I'm yours. <3
I really like the way you say
"Let me know when you get home okay"
I really like the way you flex your mental sex in retrospex!
If you ever needed just a little attention,
You've got all of mine, it's fine.
It's more than I could mention.
You can take my collar off, I'm yours. <3
Track Name: Stuck in My Head
Stuck in my head,
You're stuck on my lobes, and I really don't mind it.
Stuck in my head
Like a chewed up ball of double bubble, oh yeah!
Gotta get you out,
I don't know how, I don't know how.
Stuck in my head,
Every word that you say, every picture that you take,
Stuck in my head,
You can stay stuck, yeah, I really won't complain about it.
Gotta get you out,
I don't know how, I don't know how.
Track Name: Be My Coat Tonight
Keep me warm, Keep me warm.
Won't you be my coat tonight?
Keep me warm tonight,
Hold me close and never let me go tonight.
Track Name: Dysphoria
I don't know just who I am
Nothing left to cover me
Mirrors leave me running scared
Guess I'll have to find a way
What I feel ain't what I see
And it's really bugging me
I don't wanna be alone
Who could love a total freak
Dysphoria's got me feeling weird
All this body talk ain't clean
Now it's stuck inside my brain
There's a difference between these:
Who I am and what you see
I don't bring it up that much
I don't wanna make you strain
I don't wanna scare you off
But I'm always feeling strange
Dysphoria's got me feeling weird
Guess I'll have to make a choice
And it's gonna make one of us twitch
I don't know just who I am
Nothing left to cover me
Mirrors leave me running scared
Guess I'll have to find a way
What I feel ain't what I see
And it's really bugging me
I don't wanna be alone
Who could love a total freak
Dysphoria's got me feeling weird
Track Name: What Do You Care?
I‘m happy for you,
but it hurts to see you all the time.
You‘re doing really well, I can tell,
But I never seem to win like you.
What do you care?
I can‘t stand to see that person in the mirror.
I never wanna wake up.
It‘s just too much weight.
I never asked to be strange,
The dysphoria made me this way.
What do you care?
I can‘t stand to see that person in the mirror.
Track Name: So Long
I‘ve been waiting here for so long.
I‘ve had my ear to the ground,
Waiting for you to come around
For so long, for so long.
Track Name: Leather Jacket Boy
Leather jacket boy,come pick me up
On your motorcycle in the middle of the night.
Take me away, I don‘t wanna go home,
Where they don‘t want me, and I don‘t belong.
With spurs on your boots, and a bad tattoo
and your hand-rolled cigarettes.
Your hair combed over and a 5 o‘clock shadow,
Yeah, you‘re the best.
With the handkerchief hanging out the
left back pocket of your levi 501‘s,
Your James Dean looks and Joey Ramone Hooks,
You‘re my number one, leather jacket boy.
Track Name: Things
I know you‘re out there hating me
Somewhere out there, I believe.
You‘re caught up with the negatives,
I‘m caught up with how intense it was.
Painted by the words you say,
Words just seem to block the way.
'Cause I won‘t show you what‘s the deal,
What I‘m thinking, how I feel.
I‘m trying to pay up for my faults,
I‘m paying more than it should cost.
I‘m cleaning my closet full of doubts,
And all the skeletons come out.
They make you twitch, but I don‘t care.
I really need to clear the air.
Overtime it goes to show,
The more I say, the less you wanna know.
It‘s the things that I won‘t say to you,
That I need for you to know.
It‘s the things I‘m hiding up my sleeve
That I need for you to know.
Track Name: On The Fence
I don‘t think I‘ll come around
I don‘t want to hear you talk
And I don‘t want to see you smile
When I know you know I‘m hurt.
I don‘t care if it‘s what you need,
I don‘t ever want to be
Just another memory,
Please let me go.
But you don‘t wanna let me go
Sink your claws into the bones.
Wrapped around and hold me down
Keep me dying on the ground.
You should know that
You‘re the last thing that I needed,
And I don‘t need you anymore,
Because my nose bleeds, my head screams,
Put me down and let me go.
Things you say don‘t seem to stick
Like they used to in the past.
Now it‘s one ear, out the other
And I‘ll answer with my back.
Take your time and think it over,
But don‘t look for me, I‘m gone
I don‘t want to stick around
and waste my time alone.
Things seem different now,
Everything has changed,
Heart‘s been rearranged,
Empathy‘s been drained.
That‘s the way it‘s gotta be
When you‘re on the fence.
No one likes to stick around
And take on all the hits.
Track Name: You Won't Mind
Put me out here on the curb,
Let me rot out in the sun.
Shrivel up and disappear,
You‘ll never know that I was here.
And I know that‘s what you want.
And I‘m happy to oblige.
I won‘t smile, I won‘t budge.
I won‘t stay, and you won‘t mind.
You never did before,
Whenever I‘d walk by.
You don‘t have a name
anymore to me.
I put you on a pedestal,
Called you gold and held you high.
Now your shine is wearing off.
And you‘re bleeding out my eyes.
I don‘t want your stupid shirt.
I don‘t need it, cause it hurts.
I don‘t need to speak my mind.
I won‘t stay and you won‘t mind.
And we've been here for so long,
I think it‘s time that we move on.
I‘ll go my way, you go yours.
Flip the switch, close the door.
