Track Name: Wisdom Teeth
Six ulcers and counting but you're not me. I've seen my gross side and now I know I want to die. Take this seed and plant it inside your head. I hope that it grows to split you in half.

I never wanna go back.

Under this bridge an old crone she lives. In this bag of bones a heart attack pumps alone. She's just a babydoll twist her legs and watch her fall. They're all full of shit and I can't take this.

I can't do this anymore. I can't follow all of them. What does this all mean to you? I never wanna go back.

Take it from me don't worry I don't bleed.

Get out of my head.
Track Name: Dirt
Put on my uniform that says I don't conform. Put on my arrogance to keep my friends.

Seek validation through your peers. Seek acceptance through your label.
Track Name: Witch
I want to be all alone on my own. It's all just for me both me and my queens drinking peppermint tea, do you think that I don't see?

You are not my king my one and only, none and lonely.

I will just lie its too bad we're so shy. I'd rather lay down and die finding my battlecry, ennui comes in July and all you hear is me shy. Please do not cry, well I love this goodbye. With all my chicks aligned my right eye's going blind I can't even tell the time no pills because I feel fine.

You are not my king my one and only, none and lonely.

Oh this banshee, well she helps me feel free. Drowning in a dead sea, hanging from Christmas trees, no longer your devotee I'm just your absentee.

I am a bitch and my heart can't be stiched.

Nothing more I can do take a look at this shrew everything went askew and nothing can be renewed.
Track Name: Menace
Devil's looking for an advocate. I know that you would fit real nicely. Please tell me what it is I meant to say, please tell me what it is I meant to think. I know you're always right, you just wanna get into a fight. I'd rather die than be your little girl, never gonna follow all your rules.

Please put me in my place, I don't belong here, put me in place, be my puppeteer.

Color me shocked that you can read all my thoughts, so obscene that you think you know what I mean. Stare straight down your nose looking at me, pat me on the head don't stop your glaring. Go on tell me what it means to be a girl, go on tell me how to change the fucking world. I know you're always right, you wanna just get into a fight.

Please put me in my place, I don't belong here, put me in place, I need someone to steer.

Devil's looking for an advocate, I know that you would fit real nicely. Please tell me what it is I mean to say, please tell me what it is I meant to think. Its you that put these words in my mouth and its you that put this hate in my head. I'd rather die than be your little fool, never gonna follow all your rules.

You've made it so clear. I don't belong here. You've made it so damn clear.
Track Name: The F Word
I'm all for equal rights but don't call me a feminist. I'm all for equal pay but don't call me a feminist. I'm all for equal power but don't call me a feminist. I'm all for women's lib, but don't call me a feminist!

You can take our word and make it something dirty. Take our fucking word but that's not what it really means. You can take our word and make it something scary. Take our fucking word but that's not what it really means.

I shave both my legs so how am I a feminist? Well I have a boyfriend so how am I a feminist? I don't even like girls so how am I a feminist. I DON'T EVEN LIKE GIRLS SO HOW AM I A FEMINIST?

You can take our word and make it something dirty. Take our fucking word but that's not what it really means. You can take our word and make it something scary. Take our fucking word but that's not what it really means.

I'm all for equal power but don't call me a feminist. I'm all for equal pay but I am not a feminist. I'm all for equal rights but I am not a feminist. I'm all for women's rights but I am not a feminist.

You can take our word and make it something scary. Take our fucking word and make it something dirty. You can take our word and make it something scary. Take our fucking word but that's not what it really means.
Track Name: Venus Envy
I don't much like these bones. Time to carve out my nose. I trust you, you put me to sleep. Look like Venus to earn my keep.

Cut me up or cut me out.

Down on my back under this knife. Scalpel is god, come change my life. I'm in pieces you stare right in. Take your mask build me again.

Cut me up or cut me out.

Cut me up or cut me out.

Down on my back, under this knife. Scalpel is god, come take my life. I trust you, you put me to sleep. Look like Venus, to earn my keep.
Track Name: "Love"
You know just how to rip me apart. But I love it. It makes me feel like I'm home. Shaking nerves are twisting together to form six feet of rainclouds. This thunder never stops.

Like watching scabs form only to peel them off, just to prolong my own healing. Do not ever let me heal. These phantom lines they trace my legs just for you.

Green is such a calming color.
Green is such a calming color.
Green is such a calming color.
Look how calm you've made me.
Track Name: Walk in Fear
Eyes peeled open so you can keep staring at me. Keep blowing kisses I promise that I won't say anything. Is my dress too short please tell me how it makes you feel. I'm just a girl on the street so I guess I'm yours to steal.

Daytime monsters have broken free from all my nightmares. Breathe down my neck just to make sure that I'm always scared. Stare as hard as you can maybe I'll melt into your eyes. In your head you'll take us home and you have won the prize.

You can turn me inside out but you will never win. Not for you and not for him I live in my own skin. I'm not a piece of meat and I'm not your property. I say no but you just keep starting back at me.

You are such fucking scum.
Track Name: Die on the Way Home
Cut me up, tear me out, fuck you too.
