Track Listing:

Walk in a corner shop
See a shoplifting cop
See the old lady with a gun
See the hero try to run
Nothing's what it seems, I mean
It's not all dirty, but it's not all clean
There's children paying bills
There's monks buying thrills
There's pride for sale in magazines
There's pills for rent to make you clean
Marvin Gaye, there's no brother, brother
Woody Guthrie's land can't feed Mother

[CHORUS]

Mothers weep, children sleep
So much violence ends in silence
It's a shame there's no one to blame
For all the pain that life brings
If you will just take me It might just complete me
And together we can make a stand

A waitress brings me lunch
We meet but do not touch
On TV, D.C. is selling lies
While in the corner, King's dream dies
Go to the counter, pay for me and my friend
A homeless man pulls out a roll, says it's on him
The mayor has no cash
He said he spent it on hookers and hash

[CHORUS]

you will love me, I will love you

[CHORUS]




Hey little baby, little lover boy
Get in my arms, give me some joy
I wanna hold u tonight
It'll be alright
'Cause the night is long and I hunt for u
In this darkest hour, where have u gone 2?
Won't u come 2 my side
I need u tonight

[CHORUS]

Run 2 me, I'll run 2 u
Let me crash into u
Run 2 u, you'll run 2 me
I alone can love u
U belong 2 me

I need u for dark reasons, dear
For greed and lust and seed and fear
For all the songs that I can hear when u are near
'Cause the places I've been, well I'm trying 2 forget
But the further I run, well, the further I get
But with just one kiss, u know that it do not exist
So won't u dance for me beneath the street lamp's light
With your arms stretched out, baby, drunk on wine
U know it feels so good, like it should, just 2 laugh
I knew that it would

[CHORUS]

La, la, la, close your eyes
La, la, la, it's a lullaby

[CHORUS]




I'm just a simple girl
In a high tech digital world
I really try to understand
All the powers that rule this land
They say Miss J's big butt is boss
Kate Moss can't find a job
In a world of post modern fad
What was good now is bad

It's not hard to understand
Just follow this simple plan

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You look at me
but you're not quite sure
Am I it or could you get more?
You learn cool from magazines
You learn love from Charlie Sheen

If you want me let me know
I promise I won't say no

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby

You got something that you want me to sell
Sell your sin. Just cash in.
You got something that you want me to tell
You'll love me. Wait and see.

If you want me
Don't play games
I promise
it won't be in vain
Uh-uh-uh

Follow your heart
Your intuition
It will lead you in the right direction
Let go of your mind
Your Intuition
It's easy to find
Just follow your heart baby




I like your smile
Don't like complication
I like your style
Don't like calculation
Come towards me, dear
There's something u need 2 hear

[CHORUS]

I said If u want my love
U can try my love
U can't buy my love
Just take my hand
If u want me, dear
Then just beckon, dear
And I will appear
I said-u can leave the lights on
U can leave the lights on

I believe in love, dear
Without limitation
Believe in being clear
2 avoid aggravation

If u want me 2
I will exist just for u

[CHORUS]

I will mesmerize with milky thighs and languid eyes,
I'll prophesize your moans and sighs
Just look at me sacredly, religiously, hungrily,
let your eyes say, "Please," I will not leave

[CHORUS]




2 Find U

If I asked u a question
Would u look me in the eyes?
Has our love been built on lies?
Well, why I'm asking
U see, the time is now
2 turn our backs forever
Or work this through somehow
And I want 2 see u
I want 2 feel new again

[CHORUS]

Hey, U
Do not walk away
Let's choose love, come on
What do u say?
Hey, U
Know that I would spend
My whole life all over again
2 find U

We've layered hurt on hurt
I've seen pain cloud your eyes
But we are bruised, not broken
Like a phoenix, love will rise
And do U see me?
Do u feel new again?

[CHORUS]

Look in my eyes
Kiss my mouth hard
Let your conviction
Reassure my heart
Promise me now
I'll promise U, too
I love u




If u want my heart
U have 2 promise not 2 tear it apart
'Cause my heart
Has been hurt a lot
And it always seems
Love is not sweet, like in dreams
Something falls through
But I don't want that 2 happen 2 me and u

[CHORUS]

So be
Careful, warning
Fragile heart

Last Saturday
We ate dinner at your parents' place
Last Saturday, u said
How u feel will not go away
Well, all the fishes in the sea
Could not be happier than me

[CHORUS]

Only fools believe that
Nothing changes, nothing leaves
But I need 2 believe that we at least
Will have some dignity
'Cause everything changes
Nothing stays the same
But that's no excuse 2 be casual
Or 2 place the blame
U have 2 be careful with me

[CHORUS]




Doin' Fine

We are what everyone wants 2 be
We are young
And carefree
Life's a breeze for people like u and me

If U look
Life lays out just like a road
It's for us 2 grab ahold
There's no one that can tell us no

[CHORUS]

So come on, baby
Let's just have fun
Let's breathe stardust into our lungs
Let's drive too fast
Let's go too far
When our hearts bleed it lets us know we are-alive
And that we are-doin' fine

We lay down
Look at the sky
From upside down
There's nobody we have 2 be
Let's live fast and see where it leads

[CHORUS]

Let's get lost
In love like wine
Let kisses quench
This thirst of mine
Let me feel the weight of your skin
Pressing in

[CHORUS]




I watch u while you're sleeping
Messy hair, chest bare, moonlight on your skin
I wanna breathe u in
In the silence, words come easy
I can tell u now just how simple it's been 2 let u in
Don't move, this mood is a painting
We'll never find the same thing

[CHORUS]

Love, do not make a sound
Melt into me now
2 become 1

Love is so close 2 hurting
With a shake we could wake from our own dreaming
But we must make a vow
'Cause I have waited a lifetime
Now is the right time

[CHORUS]

Love, let's make time stand still
Let this moment last until
2 become 1

Like a bird owns its wings
Like a song belongs 2 melody
U belong 2 me
I fold your arms around me
Let your flesh, your breath, your love, surround me
Oh, u feel like home

[CHORUS]




I will come 2 u
In the still of the night
And I will crush u
With the burden of sight
And u will understand
The shadows in my heart
The fury of my conviction
Will cause your heart 2 quicken
And then, my dear
U will see u want me here

[CHORUS]

And when u wake up
U will see yourself through my eyes
And when u break up
You'll understand
Why it is I cry

Let me speak quietly
So your heart can hear
I will hypnotize and mesmerize u
With the sound of your own fear

[CHORUS]

I just wanna get along
This is your song
I wrote it in my head
But the melody's all wrong
And it's driving me crazy
Not having u, baby
2 keep me company
In my own private world
You're my one true girl
And I won't be stoppin' Just 'cause your knees are knockin'
When I decide 2 drop in
So don't make a sound
'Cause there's no one around
2 come between us now
I'm gonna haunt u, girl

[CHORUS]




(Running fast through a fairy tale
Dark woods; starless night
Feel cold air in my lungs
Full moon, u follow me-u say
"Why do hearts so often stray?"
U pierce me like an arrow
Beneath the blanket of night
Longing for flight

[CHORUS]

When u fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
Softly calling
Come 2 me u will see, just give in
2 this sweet temptation

I awake, do a double take 2 see
Where it is that I lay-it could be
Day or night, I'm not quite sure
Your absence is a thorn
Your flesh, your skin
Is the only flag there is 2 believe in

[CHORUS]

I can love u like nobody else

When u fall into me
It feels so sweet, like dreaming
Press yourself into me
Let me feel your breathing
There's a voice in your heart
Softly calling




Make your way through mirrored halls
See the boys with all their dolls
A pretty maze, like candied streets
U feel a thrill when your eyes meet
U pick the one with the feathered hair
But I'm the one that makes the boys stare
There's a room, or so I'm told
Where the DJ rocks and we don't grow old
Would u like 2 take a ride?
All u have 2 do is come inside

[CHORUS]

Say hello 2 the room where the party's jumpin'
Where the boys all freak 'cause boots are bumpin'
Where the girls are naughty and always saying
"Yes u can, yes u can, yes u can"

U got on your money rags
And Papa's got a brand new bag
And Mama's got her hot pants on
While in the back, the beat goes on
Would u like 2 come along?
Then shut up and sing this song

[CHORUS]

The boys are pale
The girls are soft as nails
The band strikes up and it starts 2 wail
There's a price on everything
It's not cheap 2 buy your dreams

[CHORUS]




Walk down the street
2 a psychedelic beat
I'm a real girl
In an unreal world
Disco lights and buff bodies are nice
I'm like any girl; I enjoy the sights
But I'm no Cinderella 2 your storybook fella
I'm no Barbie doll for your fantasies and all
If u let me be me, I'll be better than your best dream
U and m-e spells l-o-v-e 2 me

[CHORUS]

Come on, baby, won't u crash into me?
I'm like nothing that you've ever seen
Dynamite,
I'll blow your mind
Guaranteed 2 mesmerize
You'll say, "Ooh la, la, la"

Old Spice is nice
But sweat is better
E-mail is cool
But romance lives in a letter
Batteries are fine, but I'm
Energized all the time
U and m-e spells l-o-v-e 2 me

[CHORUS]




Walkin' 2 the corner of Main Street, USA
Look at the good people, hear what they gotta say-uh-huh
All right
See a sexy girl with her long black hair
See a preacher man sporting Abercrombie wear-uh-huh
All right
Walk into a corner store
A man says, "This is what I'm fighting for"

[CHORUS]

We are living in America
We're giving in America
We're tripping in America

Everywhere I go, seems like Bush is on TV
We shed blood in the name of liberty-uh-huh
All right
The circus tents are dead, but the sideshow is doing well
The Osbournes and Anna Nicole are too freaky 2 tell-uh-huh
All right

Take the bad with the good
I wanna change it, but I wouldn't leave it if I could

We are trying in America
We're spying in America
Getting high in America
We are laughing in America
We're crying in America
We're dying in America

We are trucking in America
We are f**king in America
We are lucky in America
We are breaking ground in America
Just another town in America
We are breaking down in America

Take the bad with the good
I wanna change it, but I wouldn't leave it if I could

[CHORUS]

We are trying in America
We're spying in America
We're getting high in America

We are getting tan in America
We love Spam in America
Polanski's banned from America

10 million served in America
Have u heard in America?
We're crying in America
We're laughing in America
We're living in America




Listen, heart
Listen close-listen
2 the melancholy
Melody of your own voice
I am weary of my own dreaming
I am tired of waiting
So this time, I'm leaping

[CHORUS]

I reach-beyond myself 2 see
What I find, beyond my mind, there is no time
In this place beyond my sight
My heart knows what is not yet seen
I'm witnessing my own becoming

Lash myself 2 the
Mantle of my desire-I will
Turn from its temptations
But the wanting takes me higher

I am hurting
Oh, I am not yet born
I am the mother and the father
Of what is not yet known
Darkness surrounds me
I scratch, I struggle, I breathe

[CHORUS]
