Track Name: Cat Power Girl
she says goodbye with the sweetest smile
i say i'll love her with all my heart
she does this thing with her lips and tounge
i hope to god our lips will never part

those stories are gold
we won't write no end
the curtains can fall
but the smell won't fade
love always grows where the love always grows
know this, i'm yours tonight

she has that cat power in her blood
there's something raw sparkling in her eyes
she puts her eyeliner on for me
she never questions and never fights

those stories are gold
we won't write no end
the curtains can fall
but the smell won't fade
love always grows where the love always grows
know this, we'll be lost tonight
Track Name: G R O W L ! ! !
and when the torture fades
you've lost your eyes
the sad surprise was lost
you fake the things you hide behind

but I'm not looking for a lot
I'm game
I'm a bird in your cage
and I'm not falling for those lies again & again
I hide my feelings inside

so tell me one more time
who's skin you've washed
it's more the circumstance
the chance to go again

and I'm not looking for a lot
I'm game
I'm a bird in your cage
and I'm not falling for those lies again & again
I hide my feelings inside
Track Name: Heart
I <3 you
lonely hearts are we
I <3 you
but worrying <3 <3 <3 will collide
i <3 you
and you <3 me too
i <3 you
you get me, quietly
Track Name: Vampire
the sun in the night time, baby
will eat you alive
the war fought at peace time sweetheart
will keep us apart

the stars in the black sky, honey
the words on the street
the love on your shoulder, baby
will paint your old heart

but I'm hoping that you will dodge the light, with me

and your eyes will always kill cats
and your partys suck
the part of a life time, honey
you will fuck it up

but I'm hoping that you will dodge the light, with me
Track Name: Whale
I'm a whale
I'm a fork on your sheet
I'm a safe bet for sure
you come and ease my worries now

dance to the beat
I'm a dog on the street
I'm a boy, chandelier
you come and ease my worries now

fake plastic ring
for the fire, make them sing
I'm a dead bean you know
you come and ease my worries now
Track Name: Clarinet Doll
Clari-clari-net doll
Clarinet doll
I'm about to sell the bulk of my soul
so hear my dying breath
stall my dying words
but all my words are wrong
and all my senses dulled

Clari-clari-net doll
Clarinet doll
I'm about to do what no one has done
if only paper spoke
if all the pens had mouths
I get what I deserve
I get that makes it worse

Clari-clari-net doll
Clarinet doll
never ever change the things in your mind
I'm only flesh and bone
I'll sit outside and mold
there's nothing after this
there's only paper smoke

Clari-clari-net doll
Clarinet doll
I'm supposed to know what no one has known
I'll carve out all your brains
I'll pick it from the dust
You get what you deserve
Your praying makes it worse
clarinet doll
Track Name: You
party's over watch my back
painted red, all go, attack!
tainted souls obey me now
you have never caused a wow
but it's you
I'm going with you
you
you

I don't know, it's hard to say
get me now, the end of the day
friday caused me nothing good
paper cuts and chopped up wood
but now it's you
I'm going with you
you
you

let my head out of that sack
put my feet back on the track
get my arms to move again
I thought nothing of my friends
but it's you
I'm going with you
you
you
Track Name: Shelter
I'm not your fighter
I'm not your friend
I'm not your brother, not your aim

and we are blessed with weather
wind, sun, rain or snow
we fall into the desert, dead & gloomy, watch the sun

I'm always stranger
I'm not your son
I'm always further, always gone
I'm all the waste in your old land

So take heed
I'm near
Take shelter
Don't you girl
