Track Name: Overture
Love ain't the knife in my back,
Love is my heart that's attached.
To the walls, from the floor,
To the strangers door,
It is Love.
Track Name: Time to Kill
Time to roll the dice,
You know you're a little late.
If I steal your heart,
Would I be the one you hate?
Pick a card, hey, any card,
And I'll show you a trick.
Magical, so magic, so tell me what you think.

You just want more,
You want more...

Time to wake in the morning,
And wake in the morning,
'Cause this is how you'll die.
Can't wake in the morning,
Cannot wake in the morning,
'Cause I'm not saving lives.

Breaking hearts like it's my job,
And cheating in this game.
Diamonds are such pretty things,
But I'd rather play charades.
Let me show you why,
I'm not feeling that way,
That way today.

Let me show you how to play, it's...

Time to wake in the morning,
And wake in the morning,
'Cause this is how you'll die.
Can't wake in the morning,
Cannot wake in the morning,
'Cause I'm not saving lives.
Track Name: Blue
It isn't possible, but hey it ain't impossible.
I am impossible, but oh do I love you.
You make me feel like I'm okay,
I see a black cloud heading, but you're blowing it away.

You make it possible, you know that I'm impossible.
You're like a popsicle on the way to the hospital.
Whoa, baby call an ambulance,
I'm dying for you like I'm an addict.

Oh, I never really did much for you.
I never wanted to, I never wanted to.
I tried, but I never knew what to do.
And I don't know how to fix it.
You say you don't need help,
But I don't seem to get it.
Oh, I never really did much.

It isn't possible, but hey it ain't impossible.
I am impossible, but oh do I love you.
Oh, no, get out of my face,
No I did not mean what I said yesterday.

You make it possible, you know that I'm impossible.
You're like a popsicle on the way to the hospital.
I'm sick of living this manic life,
I'm got bruises on my hands from gripping knives.

Oh, I never really did much for you.
I never wanted to, I never wanted to.
I tried, but I never knew what to do.
And I don't know how to fix it.
You say you don't need help,
But I don't seem to get it.
Oh, I never really did much.
Track Name: Funeral Etiquette
One kiss will take you forever.
Help yourself.
I want it all, but I can't afford it.
I wish everything was perfect, but it's not worth it.

I want to take you
Away, away, away, away, away.
I'm afraid, for you my babe,
you don't have long to stay, to stay, to stay.

My lovely little honey,
You're so funny I could die!
If I wasn't dead already,
I would make you mine.

I want to take you
Away, away, away, away, away.
I'm afraid, for you my babe,
you don't have long to stay, to stay, to stay.
I want to take you
Away, away, away, away, away.
I'm afraid, for you my babe,
you don't have long to stay, to stay, to stay.
Track Name: Nightmares
I wouldn't do that if I were you!
You don't know where that knife has been.
I wouldn't go there, I'm going nowhere,
'Cause I've been waiting here for you.

Wake up!

Dream clouds are coming through my window,
Hoping that I sleep tonight,
And I'm sucking the life right out of you,
So I can sleep and you can die.

I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Don't you know who I am?
I wouldn't go there, when I'm going nowhere.
'Cause I'm not an angel.

Dream clouds are coming through my window,
Hoping that I sleep tonight.
And I'm sucking the life right out of you,
So I can sleep and you can die.
Track Name: Bad
You said I was worth a number,
I didn't know I was negative.
You ran, and I st-stuttered,
That I knew what you'd regret.

You want me bad!

Saw the mask covered up your beauty,
I didn't know that it was faux.
Saw the mask as you replaced it,
You're so ugly, why did I know?

You want me bad!
You want me bad!

Cover me in all your magic.
Plastic wrap, and silly rope.
Thought you'd hurt me? Ain't that tragic!
My escape left you no hope.

You want me bad!
I'm all you wish you had!
You want me bad!

And I'm a sinking ship, and you lost me in the storm.
I might as well be a bitch, how am I supposed to care?
It's easy to love, baby....

Ohhhhhh.

You want me bad!
I'm all you wish you had!
You want me, You still want me.
You want me, You still want me.
You want me, You still want me.
You want me, You still want me....
BAD.
Track Name: Elevator
Elevator, Elevator,
Bring me to the top.
Though the building has an ending,
There's no way you can stop!

Elevator, Elevator,
Have you had enough?
You were crying in the lobby,
And all the way up up, up up!

You're made of glass, and I can see right through.
And you've been hurtin' from the way that I've been pushin' you.
You've got another one coming, whatcha gonna do?
'Cause I'm addicted to power, igniting the fire that burns
When I am dictating you.
Oh, you.

Elevator, Elevator,
The way that I use you.
I just keep pushing buttons,
Am I abusing you?
Oh, you.

Elevator, Elevator,
Get me off this ride.
When you told me that you loved me,
I thought that you lied,
And baby, don't lie, no!

You're made of glass, and I can see right through.
And you've been hurtin' from the way that I've been pushin' you.
You've got another one coming, whatcha gonna do?
'Cause I'm addicted to power, igniting the fire that burns
When I am dictating you.
Oh, you.

Oh, you've got another one coming,
Oh, you've got another one coming,
Oh, you've got another one coming, oh...

You're made of glass, and I can see right through.
And you've been hurtin' from the way that I've been pushin' you.
You've got another one coming, whatcha gonna do?
'Cause I'm addicted to power, igniting the fire that burns
When I am DICTATING....
You're made of glass, and I can see right through.
And you've been hurtin' from the way that I've been pushin' you.
You've got another one coming, whatcha gonna do?
'Cause I'm addicted to power, igniting the fire that burns
When I am dictating you.
Oh, you.
Track Name: Little Ghost
Oh little ghost in my home,
I'm in your honor little ghost.
You lift me up, and I can feel your pains.
I'm insane.
Little ghost, I'm insane.

Oh little friend of mine, you died.
You brought the fire in my eyes.
You bring me down and I can see no flames.
I'm okay.
Little ghost, I'm okay.

Scream! Little ghost you're not only just a dream.
I worry myself, and in my sleep I scream.
Little ghost don't haunt me in my sleep.

Oh, I'm waiting for a letter as my little ghost roams.
He said he'd write to me, just come back home.
I'm alone.
Little ghost, I'm alone.

Scream! Little ghost you're not only just a dream.
I worry myself, and in my sleep I scream.
Little ghost don't haunt me in my sleep.
Track Name: The Disease
You're like a diamond in my eyes,
You're so beautiful, and so bright.
You're blinding me, oh can't you see.
Bling me with you light.
Your light.
Your light.
Ohh...

You're like a feather, light as air.
But I want you to disappear.
You've captured me, oh can't you see.
I ain't goin' nowhere.
Ain't goin' nowhere.
Ain't goin' nowhere.
Ohh...

Nobody loves you.
And you've been waiting so long.
One second there here,
Then you look away and they're gone.
Nobody loves you at all.

You'll never get me under your spell.
I hope you think you're funny,
'Cause it's really hard to tell.
And honestly, oh can't you see.
You're better off alone.
Alone.
Alone.
Ohh...

Nobody loves you.
And you've been waiting so long.
One second there here,
Then you look away and they're gone.
Nobody loves you at all.
Track Name: Granny's House
Let's all dance in the wind as she'll watch through the windows.
The clock strikes a number that puts us in horror.
Sweet days, where the sun is at blaze.
You open the door, and I show up at your floor.
The forest is dying, but we're still denying the truth.
Oh, I wish to go back but it's too far, it's too far.
So scream if you're scared, we'll be walking on air.
Granny is nicer, or is she? What is she?
It's monsterous, it's too dangerous, dangerous.

Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go!

Sit and relax as she waits to attack.
You don't see it coming, no survival of sitting in this chair.
Sitting in this chair.
Watch as she waits to go under the floorboards,
and grabs at your feet as she bites at your ankles.
Oh, what a day, time has been wasting away...
You run for the door!

Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go!

Open the door, and seek your get away.
Through the trees and you will live today!

Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go, Granny.
Let me go!
