Track Name: Charming
Dead horse waiting to be beaten don't know when to stop
Frowning at the sunset 'til the sun comes up
Peel me like an onion, don't forget to cry
Tug the heartstrings tighter smile and sigh

You're worse than W waiting for the X
Line the walls with purple prose maudlin and daft
Drama queenie meanie at the curtain call

With your invisible backbone its easy to slink into oblivion
With your invisible backbone it’s easy to fade into obscurity

All your talk is like white noise in my head
Making me remember what I’d rather forget
You're going nowhere – I wish you’d stay right there

You're as charming as a gun
Say goodbye to the lovely ones
You're as charming as a gun
Like a leper on the run
You're as charming as a gun
Trigger happy for all the lovely ones
You're as charming as a gun
Say goodbye to the lovely ones

Spreadin' rumors like a nasty disease
No time for thank you's excuse me please
You bear your grudges like a saint bears his cross
Ten index fingers pointing across

I'd rather die alone than end up with you
I'd rather dry up than waste my tears on you
I'd rather blind myself than look at you again

You're as charming as a gun
A shadow of what I wanted once
You're as charming as a gun
Shootin' blanks at the lovely ones
You're as charming as a gun
Not exactly my idea of fun
You're as charming as a gun
A cry goodbye to the lovely ones
Track Name: Sick Of Myself
SICK OF MYSELF

I don’t like centipedes and I don’t like ants
I despise my enemies and I sure don’t like my friends
I don’t like to listen and don’t make me talk
I don’t like to play nice – you can fuck off

I’m so sick of everybody else
But most of all I’m sick of myself
I’m so sick of everybody else
I’m so sick of myself

If you’d be walking in my shoes
I bet your feet would hurt you too
If you’d be walking in my shoes
you’d go down that same road too
same road too

I don’t like to wait in line or sweetness on the sly
I don’t like fake flowers they make me wanna cry
I don’t like drunk people unless I’m wasted too
I don’t like to take the time and I don’t like you

I’m so sick of everybody else
But most of all I’m sick of myself
I’m so sick of everybody else
I’m so sick of myself

If you’d be walking in my shoes
I bet your feet would hurt you too
If you’d be walking in my shoes
you’d go down that same road too
same road too

I’m so sick of everybody else
But most of all I’m sick of myself
I’m so sick of everybody else
I’m so sick of myself
I’m so sick of everybody else
but most of all I’m sick of myself
I’m so sick of everybody else
I’m so sick of myself
I’m so sick of myself
So fucking sick of myself
Track Name: Halfway There
HALFWAY THERE
What ya doing hangin’ ‘round here
Wasting time wasting my space
This ain’t no lost and found here
for the lost and out of place

You wanna rock’n roll? Well fuck you all
‘Cause what it’s supposed to mean runs outside the machinery
Another super-fan doin’ the safety dance
You wanna talk the talk but Its a tightrope walk

Got no place riffin’ round here
Time is mine got none to waste
Let me let you in on this one
The catch is better than the chase

And when I soar I soar I don’t need your wings
I don’t look back or down never turn around
Not afraid to crash and burn because today
That’s where I‘m heading anyway

Riding on the tail of easy
Smoking on the ash of greed
Solve the puzzle of the needy
What you own you gotta feed

If you sell your soul, don‘t sell it cheap
You sow ashes, dust you reap

And when I get shot down don’t pick me up
When I’m high as a kite I’m always right
When I lose my mind I’m halfway there
Already halfway there

What ya doing hangin’ ‘round here
Wasting time wasting my space
This ain’t no lost and found here
for the lost and out of grace

And when my hearts explodes on overload
I know dead sure I’m alive alive
Cause when I dare I dare I don’t really care
If I go somewhere anywhere nowhere
cause I’m all the way halfway there
All the way halfway there
All the way halfway there
Track Name: Chicka Boom
CHICKA BOOM

Sex... Drugs... Rock n Roll
Sell it down the river baby
Punk’s dead. Says who?
Who’s dead?...You?

Get in line buy mine
Repeat line by line

Love Me Please
Say hello Miss. Popular
Feed me now
Smack or ice cream I don’t care

Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me
Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me
Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me
Please Please Please Please Please Please Please

Buy me a river
a house, a car, a brand new nose
Try be a giver
Instant karma lucky charma

Get in line buy mine
Repeat one more time

Talk to me
Tell me what I want to hear
„You’re a star You’re a star You’re a star You’re a star “
but I don’t wanna shine for you

Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me Need me
Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me Want me
Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me Like me
Please Please Please Please Please Please Please

Are you down?
Down with it but don’t know why
Truth or dare
Don’t fuck up my lullaby

Don’t you don’t you don’t you
don’t you dare
Track Name: Cheap Tattoo
CHEAP TATTOO

Dog or god?
You were so hot
But now you're not

Still I wear you
Still I wear you
Still I wear you like a cheap tattoo

Like the hit that never hit
Like the star that never shone
Like the dress that never fit

Like the itch that you can't scratch
Like the frown between your eyes
Like a pocket full of lies

I wear you
I wear you
I wear you like a cheap tattoo

I wear you
I wear you
I wear you like a cheap tattoo

Out of sight
Out of mind
You let me down too many times

But still I wear you
Still I wear you
Still I wear you like a cheap tattoo

Like the glitch that you can't fix
Like the pitch that makes you sick
Like the bitch that won't shut up

Like the system you can't beat
Like the shit that you don't need
Like the life that makes you bleed

I wear you
I wear you
I wear you like a cheap tattoo

Like a kite without a string
Like a pimp without his bling
Like all the stupid pretty things

Like a rumor to be spread
Like the voices in your head
Like wishing you were dead

I wear you
I wear you
You're skin deep like a cheap tattoo
