Track Name: Lipstick Love
Putting on your makeup just to see how it feels
Putting on your dress and putting on high heels
And now you don't wanna find it in the back of a van
'Cause if your mother couldn't love you well then nobody can

Goin' to the bars, you feel like a jerk
Gonna find somebody that don't leave you hurt
And now they're gonna break you down they're gonna beat in your skin
Because they don't wanna know where it's even gonna begin

And if it hurts
Just put on those new skirts
Forget they left you here
'Cause I won't be here anymore
And if they bring you down
Then why don't you turn it around
Just look out from above
And be my lipstick love


Slinking through the alley like a fairy savant
Gonna get somebody who needs what you want
But now you don't wanna see it coming down from your eyes
And you don't know if you can take another look of surprise

Comin' in at midnight and you're havin' your cry
Don't know if you feel like you're going to die
But now you know that you can bring it if you reel it all in
But you don't know if it's a crime, you don't know if it's a sin

Don't you cry
Wipe it out of your eye
You don't know what they want
But you know that it's coming around
I can see it now
Dressed up in your gown
Just give me what I know
And I won't be here anymore
'Cause if they bring you down
Why won't you bring it around
Just come up from above
And be the lipstick love
Track Name: Boys
Sittin' with the schoolboys to assess the situation
She says fuck your recognition what I needs appreciation
These papercut people with their magazine eyes
You got a message for 'em
She's got a treasure trove

Drinkin' things to kill you just to cower from the street
Shootin' down the burden just to lay it at her feet
Tryin' not to swallow now you'll be spittin' back their lies
There's something under there
Leather pumps will get you there

So pushing through a masculine asylum
Makeup running down your face
Shave your legs and kick 'em up to try 'em
She's beauty as she's falling from grace

I've got a light that's burning right between my eyes
Silicone sister with her straight lace thighs
Call me a boy now
Call me a boy

Now driving in the rainstorm just to get back in time
She's clinging to your sleeve trying to make up her mind
The scene is getting heavy but you've gotta keep clean
Kick out the chemicals
She's burning high, she's burning dull

Strip into your skin now you'll feel pretty and dead
The floor is full of anger so you better watch your head
Girls they're gonna kill you if you don't get mean
Don't let your father down
Pull it in and let it drown

So shoot up in a masculine asylum
Let makeup glitter down your face
Shave your chest and stop all your cryin'
He's beauty and he's falling from grace

I've got a light that's burning out my eyes
Silicone sister with her straight lace thighs
Call me a boy now
Call me a boy
Track Name: Minnie Miñoso
I was trying to catch the train
I wasn't crying but I was stuck in the rain
I was with someone who made me feel stupid
I was thinking how I wasn't in pain

I don't remember the last time I was so happy
I don't remember the last time I was so free

But I know Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
And I didn't take anything to sleep at night
Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
Minnie Miñoso's alright

I was driving and I was making good time
I'd be lying if I said I had a clear mind
The roads were empty and I could see for miles
Knew I could make it to the end of the line

I can remember how I never returned to the suburbs
And I can remember how I never thought I wanted to leave

Well I know Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
And I didn't need anyone to show me the light
Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
Minnie Miñoso's alright

Well I know Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
And I didn't need anyone to show me the light
Minnie Miñoso was the king of Chicago
Minnie Miñoso's alright
Track Name: Strut
Put on your makeup and dress like a whore
You're turning heads when you walk through the door
All them schoolboys they'll shout from their cars
Your family just wants to know who or what you are

And if you want to leave it now
They're coming after you
They'll hate the way you look and act no matter what you do

Here, pretty boy now, heard what you said
You could kill me in my sleep but you couldn't handle me in bed
High heel boots coming out tonight to dance
You know they'll kill me if you give them chance
Now my family, they just want to know who I am
I'm not a woman but I sure ain't a man

And I don't know how it's gonna come along to me
You put your lipstick on but who is it that you'll be
Track Name: ...Baby One More Time
Oh baby baby, how was I supposed to know
That something wasn't right here
Oh baby baby, I shouldn't have let you go
But now you're outta sight, yeah

Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby 'cause I need to know
Because
My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time

Oh baby baby, the reason I breathe is you
Boy you got me blinded
Oh pretty baby, there's nothing I wouldn't do
It's not the way I planned it

Show me how you want it to be
Tell me baby 'cause I need to know now
Because
My loneliness is killing me
I must confess I still believe
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
Give me a sign
Hit me baby one more time
Track Name: Apple Trees
And your mother wrapped in plastic bags
And your father's flesh around you how it drags
And your skin it tore away
Hoping out the window of your day
But your mother'd never know
So she said
I'll keep them in a row

And you met her by the railway
With the bottom half around her torn away
She was carving at herself
Wishing all around her for her health
Carving apples in her chest
Carving apples all around the rest
And she said
I'll cut them in a row
Track Name: ♥♥♥♥♥
All my life if someone told me I was lost
I'd say you found me
Didn't know that I was swimming
Until I was drowning
All my life

Feeling hard I'm feeling cold I'm
Feeling sick I'm feeling old I
Don't know how long I'll be here, Don't
Don't care if I have my hair all my life
All my life

There's always gonna be someone trying to bring you down
They're always gonna try and keep me in the ground
Well I don't know what I'll do
But I know I'll do it for you
All my life
All my life

I've been cold and I've been lonely
I've been weird and I've been ornery
But I don't care about that now
Just want to see how I'll be
Keeping along for a long time
Waiting for so long for sometime
Now I can see

Didn't know I've been waiting for
Waiting for you
All my life
All my life
All my life
Track Name: Evil/Laïka
There's nothing inherently evil
About the way we choose to live
It's based in the the things you get
But not in all the things you choose to give
So get back if you can't relate
Put the money in the bag
And put the bag back in
The bag back in the bank

Laïka I can hear you drown
From an engine burning out
And when they find and dig you out
I will know
To cut you in a row

There's something inherently evil
About the way we chose to live our lives
We keep it wrapped inside
Until the ticking bells swallow in time
And I will keep it in my head
And they will unravel every thread

Laïka I am burning down
And I can feel it in every sound
When they find and dig me out
I will know
To put me in a row

There's nothing inherently evil
About the way that I have chosen to live
And I won't apologize for the things I know
That you won't forgive
Track Name: Ex-Freaks 2ⁿᵈ
Cut your hair all short
Bought a pair of jeans
You want to cut the pain
You want to feel clean

Well I don't know you now
I thought you were my friend
And I can hear your voice
Tell me it's the end

Take a shower
Wipe your eyes
You check your power
Every time he lies
I don't wanna know

They don't let you in
Now that you cut your hair
They don't wanna hear you baby
'Cause when you used to be here
Now you feel weak
They said you was a freak
You was a freak
You was a freak
