Track Name: Dearly Departed
Been thinkin' 'bout the summer afternoons,
just driving in your car
singing along to the radio.
We never cared if we got there,
home was not too far
but you and I both know.

Some other place or maybe some time,
maybe i can be with you.
the way you walk away from me
and the way you say good-bye.
i know exactly how you feel inside,
i wonder why.

We used to talk for hours on end
every single night
secrets hanging in the air.
Confessions unheard can't be unlearned
now it's useless to pretend because you know
now you know i don't care

Some other place or maybe some time,
maybe i can be with you.
the way you walk away from me
and the way you say good-bye.
i know exactly how you feel inside,
i wonder why.

I feel so alone from being on my own won't you come home, won't you come home

And when i think about the things that i would say to you,
i get so lost in thought of spending all my days with you so,
dearly departed, we should not have ever started this
this is it
just so you know, i'm better on my own
much better on my own
Track Name: Soilent Green
Move out, make room for me,
It's not fun 'less it's more than three.
You've got your crew 'n I've got my friends,
We'll show you how this night will not end.

Bring out the toys, express you're bones.
First one out is the last one to moan.
On the bed keep your eyes peeled,
Listen to how it makes me feel.

[CHORUS]
There's no separation from the sheets and the expectation.
Run and hide; if you dare to try, I'll make you mine.

Kinky, I swear only best intentions.
My one mission, and that is to please.
If u seek it then head my direction,
I can put out your fire with ease.

Feeling soft, now that's not hard,
I assure you I've set the bar.
Have a beer, take a shot, smoke the green,
Just relax leave the rest up to me.

[CHORUS]
There's no separation from the sheets and the expectation.
Run and hide; if you dare to try, I'll make you mine.
Make you mine. I'll make you mine.

It's combustion
just like an eruption
motion in the ocean
or baby, you're turning me on

Feeling greedy
can't help feeling needy
oh please do not tease me
i need you to please me
Track Name: Another Day
My life is still a mess,
got the same wrinkles in my dress
All these secrets in my head, you're not around for me to confess

Records piled on the floor, same old song I've heard before
Wish it wasn't such a chore
Wish it wasn't such a bore

[CHORUS]
It's just another day
I sit and wait for my life to begin
It's just one of those days
I always find myself stuck in

Make me wait, I have no choice
Thinkin' of you I shout I lose my voice
I can't breathe no I can't hear
senses and you diappear

Forget all your promises made,
I have to let this fantasy fade
Loud and clear I must obey
Don't let me waste another day

[CHORUS]
It's just another day
I sit and wait for my life to begin
It's just one of those days
I always find myself stuck in
Track Name: Wolf at the Door
Peaking out the door at midnight,
not a soul alive or in sight.
Chills are going down my spine,
creepy as the mooon light.
Pouncing all the way to my heart,
not a soul to call your own.
Howling at the moon for your heart.
Big bad wolf right at my front door.

I see you staring with your grin from ear to ear.
Step back away, i donnot-donnot want you here.

No, don't come a-knockin' at my door.
So, tempted to want more.

Big bad wolf is at my door,
what am i supposed to do.
Weakened knees fall to the floor,
waiting for the sky to be blue.
The moon changed my love from my childhood fantasy.
Into all i see is, oh oh, so scary.

What big eyes do you have, the better you can see.
Well see your way off my porch get away-way from me.

No, don't come a-knockin' at my door.
So, tempted to want more.
