Track Name: The Killer, My Girl
I love my girl, she fills she fills my world
I found her on the road, waiting for a toad
To press against her lips
When I became her prince
I love her legs
She moves she makes me beg
When she slides up to me
I’m weakened to her knee
This desert is her dog
And I’m the meat she’s chewing off

When I found her on the roadside she caused a landslide
She had a gun down her pants
Her fingernails scratched down my back
She whispers in my ear
“say it loud, say it clear”
“that I’m boss and when I’m through, I’m going to take your heart and kill you”

You will never own all of my soul
I never knew I could feel this hollow
And if you want to be my soldier
I’ll take you in, I will drag you under

I saw her in the moonlight, her beauty was a deadly sight
And her eyes were so black in the night like a wild cat
She dances, spins like fire
She says she loves me but she’s a liar
She touches just like the devil
The killer, my girl
You are the cruellest angel

You will never own all of my soul
I never knew I could feel this hollow
And if you want to be my soldier
I’ll take you in, I will drag you under
Track Name: China Doll
I am a china doll I went to the water
I am a china doll I went to the water
I am a china doll I went to the water
I am a china doll I am a fighter

When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
Yeah

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh

When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
When wonder woman was in the sky
When wonder woman was in the sky
You cover your eye
When wonder woman was in the sky

I am a china doll I went to the water
I am a china doll I went to the water
I am a china doll dead in the water
I am a china doll drowned in the water
I am a china doll dead in the water
I am a china doll drowned in the water
I am a china doll dead in the water
I am a china doll drowned in the water
I am a china doll I am fighter
Oh
Hey
Oh
Hey
Oh
Oh ah
Oh ah
Track Name: Nightingale
Nightingale
Nocturnal madness
Prisoner to loneliness
Nightingale
Nightingale
Ohhhh

Singing for a love that I can’t find
Singing for you all through the night
I pour this pain from my throat
Hope you’ll hear it, note by note
Sing my love
Sing for me
Set me free
Set me free from here
Feel my song
Listen for me
Quietly
Gently
Fly to me
Oh Oh Oh
Set me free
From here

This is the night
This is the night
What it does to you
What it does to you
This is the night
This is the night
What it does to you
What it does to you, my love
Track Name: Hyena
She’s like a hyena
She scabs at the feet of your lovers
And she scabbed at the foot of my lover
And I’m a lion and I’m gonna kill her

She’s like a hyena
She’ll rip you to shreds
But only when you’re already dead
And she’s such a loner
With her high pitched screech, a tattered leech
And I’m like the tiger
This hyena’s gotta go but she moves so slow
And she’s just a lingerer
She scabs at your feet and when you turn you’re her meat

She’s like a hyena
She scabs at the feet of your lovers
And she scabbed at the foot of my lover
And I’m a lion and I’m gonna kill her

Meeeeeeeeow!

She’s like a hyena
She scabs at the feet of your lovers
And she scabbed at the foot of my lover
And I’m a lion and I’m gonna kill her

She’s like a hyena
She slips through the tiles and waits there for a while and then she’ll stop
And be stalking while you’re walking
And be listening while you’re loving
And be creeping while you’re kissing
And be racing while you’re running
And then she’ll stop
And then she’ll stare
And then she’ll dart
And try to take my boys heart
And then she’ll stop
And then she’ll stare
And then she’ll dart away
And try to take your heart away

Because she’s like a hyena
She scabs at the feet of your lovers
And she scabbed at the foot of my lover
And I’m a lion and I’m gonna kill her!
Track Name: Echo
I am in a cave
I am in a quiet room
I am in the sewer
I am in the roof

You are in the mirror
You are in the dream
You are in a painted face
You are in a scream

We’ll be forever still
Because of the curse
Down by the riverside
We can’t quench our thirst

You mutter all to yourself
In the night I call
For you I try to sing
But I’m just the echo, echo

If I could only
If I could sing
If I could only
If I could sing
If I could howl
If I could growl
If I could scream if I could shout
I would call out
To you
The flower in blue
Your reflection is askew
This obsession’s only you
I’ll be the echo, echo

Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Narcissus
I hear your heart
From the shadow in the dark
Oh

I am in a cave
I am in a quiet room
I am in the sewer
I am in the roof

While you mutter to yourself
In the night I call
For you I try to sing
But I’m just the echo, echo
I’ll be the echo, echo
Track Name: Fistful Of Fire
Walk with your two feet
Hard on the ground
Got a fistful of fire
Got a head full of wire
Walk with your two feet
Hard on the ground
Got a mouthful of birds
Got a tongue tired of words
Oh
Oh

Walk with your two feet
Soft on the sky
Got a pocketful of lies
But which one is your disguise?
Walk with your two feet
Soft on the sky
Got a handful of scars
Got an eye full of charms
Oh
Oh

Watch your legs
Watch your feet
Watch your hands
Watch out
While you sleep
Hey

Walk with your two feet
Hard on the ground
Got a fistful of fire
Got a head full of wire
Walk with your two feet
Hard on the ground
Got a mouthful of birds
Got a tongue tired of words
Of words
Of words
Of words

Watch your legs
Watch your feet
Watch your hands
While you sleep
Watch your legs
Watch your feet
Watch your hands
Watch while you sleep
Ohhhhhhh
