I’m not here to play any vain little games I’m on my own now and deadly as nightshade I try to stop caring about what other people say I do things my own way, there was a time that I thought I would be Broken, leering, no love’s beckoning Why should I have to hold and bend when it’s got nothing to do with love When it’s just insecurity, when it’s not about love, cause I want a love That’s fulfilling, opening, stretching forth I hope you see I hope you see me one day, doing my own damn thing I hope you see me even if you don’t need me One day I hope you see me

Oil slick on my lid, razor slick I beat this face for me Feral red, messy bedhead, your lusty cred Cause I hold my whip and my key And now the climax of my purchasing Can’t catch me This Glamour is not for the man, its for me Can’t catch me This Glamour is not for the man This Glamour is not for the man Can’t catch me This Glamour is not for the man, this swagger is not for the man Its for me Can’t catch me This Glamour, this swagger Is not for the man, it’s for me I paint these wings high for me And I wear any damn thing I want For me Can’t catch me This Glamour is not for man

Let’s sing ourselves a hymn to find comfort in When the world eats you away say ‘You won’t erase me today’ Find someway to laugh, it’s okay to cry Find your trusted company, now all say these words with me ‘Oh, no, you won’t knock me down this time’ ‘Oh, no, I will learn from this pain now and get better’ ‘I will learn from this pain now and get better’ ‘I will learn from this pain now and be better’ Let’s sing ourselves a hymn to find comfort in When the world has gone astray say ‘You won’t erase me today’

La misma vaina, diferente día Obsesión en la nación de opresión Por mas que luchamos, nos comprometen con sus mentiras Concentración en maldición ¿Que vale el progreso unido del mundo? ¿Que vale la paz unido del mundo? ¿Vale menos? La verdad esta hecho en un nido Convertido en mierda Muérdelo vampiro, muerde la lengua De desquiciarte con la gente Con su sangre de su sangre, desquitándote Haciéndote arma de guerra para los que tienen Poder y odio Vale menos el honor, pero vale mas el dinero Vale menos la justicia, y vale mas el dinero Vale menos la verdad pero vale mas el dineral Que vale mas el billete, que vale mas el dinero

You want to find out about me? All you have to do is ask me I mean it when I say ‘No means no’, man You want to talk about it? You should know all about it I mean it when I say ‘No means no’, man He’d like to try and rip me From the inside Try me Don’t try No means I don’t want to talk about it, you should know all about it I mean it when I say ‘No means no’, man He’d like to wrestle it from me, he thinks he can make me cum? See, I mean it when I say ‘No means no’, man Flying high on that crap delusion You’ll still come to the same conclusion No! No means no, man No means No means no

Maker and Marker You place the imprint of fine expectant loving Relieved at counting on it Now count on it stay and count on it, on love Counting on Maybe I’m jealous But I want you to myself, feeling lost and mad Wanting, hoping, praying that you’ll be… Time flew you by while I let love decide

It should have been you and me In that rickety house, ready to burn I had to make out that it couldn’t be You were so angry and I was ready to learn Oh, how the truth ashes like paper How pleasant is the fragrance? And my love, for you, Gets weaker every time Not that you asked, but I’m doing just fine Singing my song, screaming out to you In the depth of my soul from blood And too many times you screamed out at me Saying things that I couldn’t believe Oh, how the truth ashes like paper How pleasant is the fragrance? And my love, for you, Gets weaker every time Not that you asked, no, not that you asked but I’m doing.. Don’t call me, don’t write I’m doing just fine And you know what? I’m doing just fine

La juventud aprendemos las exageraciones y compromisos De una historia, del pasado, nuestro futuro no es legacía Es evolución, que somos todos Todos tenemos responsabilidades importantes para hacer el cambio Que queremos en el mundo, nuestro futuro no es legacía Es revolución Y todos somos partes de este mundo, que tenemos que cambiar

I had a fantasy of marital bliss and sweet independence But I found myself corrupted cause I don’t want to give anything up And I don’t wanna give anything away And in that fantasy I found myself in the same old, damned predicament Of being told what I want and what I need, I know what I want And I know what I need I don’t want to give anything away I don’t want to give it all away I don’t have to give it all away

I miss the place where earth slaps gasoline Sun-kissed equatorial heat Naked and whipped up in a fever dream Sunspots on eyelids, invisible palm trees Oh how I’d like to go, even though What is paradise? A trite delusion? And obsessive lie? Give it up child Even though we are sinking Paradise is still a place where I’ll bleed Even though we are sinking Paradise is still a place where I’ll bleed
