Track Name: The Last Thing I Ever Do
I look at this picture of you
It’s all that I’ve got
And even if there is a tiny little chance
I’ve got to take a chance
The dishes are in the sink
I think something is starting to grow
And if there is a reason to live
I simply do not know

The cars on the street
Keep rushing on by
And friends are as distant to me
As the stars up in the sky
And I am like a big ol’ ship
Cast upon the rocks
The lighthouse has gone dim
Gulls are dying by the flocks

I throw this bottle across the room
It smashes upon the wall
I am waiting in my room alone
I am waiting for your call
But the phone will never ring
You don’t love me this way
For these feelings I cannot control
There is gonna be a price to pay

And I
Am going down again
For you
I am drowing in this pain
And if I can ever walk again
I will crawl on back to you
I will hold you in my arms again
If it is the last thing I ever do

I don’t know if I will make it out alive
I don’t know if I even care
You know I really needed you that day
But you couldn’t even be there
I guess that’s just how life is
Sometimes things just work out that way
Maybe things will really get better
At least that is what they say…
Track Name: Broken Girl
2. Broken Girl
I could travel down the same roads
I’ve been a million times
I could lose my self at the bottom
of a bottle of wine
I could walk down every street
in this old town
Bu tnothing would change
I’d keep on falling down

I’m a broken girl in a broken world
I wanna sail away but my sail won’t unfurl
My hair is too short and my voice is too deep
And I tell you friend I wanna go back to sleep

You know I could take this bottle
or I could take my life
Maybe it’s better if I just sit here
and take my time
I could choke on these tears
or on these pills
Or maybe I just have
too much time to kill

I’m just a broken girl in a lonely place
I can’t bare to look in the mirror and see my own face
My hair is too short and my voice is too deep
Please take this broken heart it is yours to keep

I could never be her girl
and it’s killing me inside
I just want to run and run and run
but you know I can never hide
You know I’ve been down every street
in this old town
So I lift this bottle to lift my spirits
but I am only going down

I’m just a broken girl in a broken world
I wanna sail away but my sail won’t unfurl
My hair is too short and my voice is too deep
Please take this broken heart it is yours to keep
Track Name: Izzy
I traveled the back
of a big grey dog
I traveled through the rain
I traveled through the fog
Just to get
Back
To you

I traveled this country
from coast to coast
I traveled these highways
that I love the most
Just to get
Back
To you

I traveled
Ginsberg’s ‘America’
Just to get
back to you
And I
Love
You

And I can’t wait to see you again
And I can’t wait to hold you my friend
‘Cause I’ll be back to see you
And I can’t wait to see you again
And I can’t wait to hold you my friend
‘Cause I will always love you
Track Name: Afraid To Fall
Sometimes I just don’t know
Where it is that my life will go
Sometimes you just need to set yourself free
Let life go and be what it will be
The best part of breaking up
Is knowing that you can fall in love

(Chorus)
I choose to set myself free
See where this life will take me
To live and love every day like it’s the last
I refuse to drown in the past

Sometimes life don’t go as it’s planned
Sometimes it’s hard to just try to understand
And you meet someone that takes your breath away
And you just have to take a chance today
And the best part of life are those chances you take
Whether it ends in love or in heartbreak

(Repeat Chorus)
Sometimes we are so afraid of the unclear
And we lock ourselves in a prison of fear
But if you ever dream to set yourself free
Life is an adventure for us to set out and see
Taking that first step is the hardest of all
and how can we walk if we are too afraid to fall?
Track Name: Bought And Sold
The day is long the night is hard
Sitting alone in my car
Thinking about how things are
I see so clearly right before me
In that shiny new SUV
The instruments of our slavery

(Chorus)
We all have our price
We all have our vice
So we are all bought and sold
So easily we’re bought and sold

Some of us drink to forget
Though it hasn’t escaped us yet
Ignorance is easier you bet
But ignorance won’t come again
We can never forget the pain
Once we open our eyes they can’t shut again

(Repeat Chorus)
Is death the only way out
We can cry and scream and shout
Still seems there’s no way out
We all sell our lives away
to be working slaves every day
can’t afford to eat or bills to pay

(Repeat Chorus)
Headlights are shining in my eyes
Stagelights are shining in my eyes
My head is spinning from the lies
Go to work and I pay the bills
Will these songs ever pay the bills
Why do we do this? Where are the thrills?

(Repeat Chorus)
So what is your price
So what is your vice
So we are bought and sold
So easily we are bought and sold
For how much were you bought and sold?...
Track Name: What More Do They Want
Just because I don’t suppor the way
Doesn’t mean I don’t know what it’s for
They tell you it’s for freedom they tell you it’s for life
But I’m telling you friend, they’re telling you a lie
This war ain’t about Iraqi freedom
If it was do you think they would have done half of what they’ve done
This war is about profit and greed
And if you look at the facts, there was no need

(Chorus)
They have it all what more do they want
Pack our kids off to the front
Give them a gun and tell them to fight
I’m telling you son that this ain’t right
If you really supported the troops you’d bring them home
I fyou really wanted freedom you’d put down the gun

This is nothing new, we’ve seen it all before
America comes in and kicks in the door
Does Vietnam ring a bell
Send our troops off to hell
There was no need other than greed
All that mony spent could help those in need
We need food not bombs, love not war
Peace is worth fighting for

(Repeat Chorus)
How many innocent lives must be taken
Before you realize you were mistaken
Enlisted for a better furture
Were never told you’d be a murderer
Just following orders
Well so were Hitler’s soldiers
The only way war will ever end
Is if you lay down your gun

(Rpeat Chorus)
It’s easy to blame those at the top
Bu only you can make this war stop
If there’s noone left to fight their war
Then we would have war no more
If there’s noone left to fight their war
Then we would have war no more
(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Seeds Of Revolution
I plant these seeds of flowers
I give them sun and water
I pull out the weeds
I take care of their needs
Watch them reach up for the sky

We need some love to grow

They will try to keep us down
But our roots are planted firmly in the ground
We’re planting the seeds of resistance
and they will never conquor us
We will overcome and reach for the stars

We need some love to grown

The future is your’s to make it
Follow the law or choose to break it
We are the seeds of revolution
Creating a new world for our children
In the ashes of the old

We need some love to grow…
Track Name: Girl Inside
Life was kind of bad and I
didn’t know what to do
So I went with you
and now I go alone

I didn’t have no place to go
so I went on out to the coast
And there I lived
without a home

Never in my life did I
ever feel quite right
And now I
know why

I was living as a boy and
it never brought me no joy
Because I’m
a girl inside

For once in my life I
feel like I can be myself
And I don’t
have to hide
Track Name: Wild Irish Roses
I’m picking Wild Irish Roses for my baby
You know it’s been a Jubilee since you left me
You know I took a ride on a Night Train
No no no I’m never coming back again
Now I’m picking Wild Irish Roses for my baby
Life’s been a blur since she walked away from me

I’ve been walking in a daze these days
It feels like life is blurred in a haze
Since my baby walked out of my door
I’ve spent my time on this cold hard floor
And I’ve seen my insides spilled out before me
And I’ve never been so happy in misery

I’m taking the A train to Far Rockaway
Because I’m drinking like Jack Karuac today
Praying for rain because I’m sick of being dry all day
I think I’ll drown my brain in alcohol today
Wet brain – wet dreams
Wet brain – wet dreams…
Track Name: Live my Life In Fear
Well you call me a faggot
And you call me a queer
And you think I should
Live my life in fear

You call me a bitch
you call me a sissy
but I am a girl
it’s plain to see
so why should I feel shame
for what I really am

Well I suck dick
And I eat pussy
And you think you’re
So much better than me
Well I’m a bi-sexual
I am proud to say
Why should I live my life
Any other way?

I was born with a dick
That much is true
But I am not less
Of a person than you
I’m transgender
So get over it
It wasn’t a choice
And I don’t need your shit

Well you call me a faggot
And you call me a queer
And you think I should
Live my life in fear

Maybe I am
All of these things you’ve said
But that don’t mean
I would be better off dead
Maybe you should get a life
And leave me to mine
Maybe get to know me
We might get along fine

But you deny me housing
And healthcare
You would rather see me
Dying out there
Because to you I’m a faggot
And to you I’m a queer
And I don’t know why
That fills you with fear

I’m not contagious
It’s not a disease
And it’s not a choice
So I’m asking you please
Control your own life
And leave me to mine
Stop being a bigot and
Open your heart and your mind
Track Name: Am I A Hipster Yet?
I’ve hung out in Williamsburgh
And I’ve been to uptown Minneapolis
I listen to songs you’ve never heard
And I like bands that are so obscure
Am I a hipster yet?

I like fashion right out of the 50’s
I buy my clothes in thrift stores
And my friends are so cool
They’re so much better than yours
Am I a hipster yet?

I like the sounds of the ukulele
I like girls that sing like they’re from France
I only listen to records
And I like my boys in tight tight pants
I wear clothes that no one else wears
I listen to music that no one ese listens to
I read books that no one else reads
And I write poetry that no one wants to read
Am I a hipster yet?

I write songs that no one hears
I play music and no one cares
And this song is so fucking ironic
Am I a hipster yet?
Track Name: Storm Inside
This is the best year
and the worst year
of my life, of my life
And I just hope
that you’re doing alright
doing alright.

I look out my
windo cill
the sun is in the sky
I look around
this room I fill
a storm is on the rise
Take cover my friends
be sure to shield your eyes
you do not
want to see
this monster inside.

I have no regrets
for these feelings I feel
all the love and all the pain
Outside
the sun is starting to shine
inside so much damn rain.
And this storm will
rise up and destroy us both?
if we can’t find some peace.
On this anger
and frustration
It will make itself a feast.

But I’m doing alright
I’m doing alright
for the first time in my life.
Gues I made it out
made it out alive
made it out alive.
If we can only
weather this storm
we can make it out tonight.
You know that life
can really be tough
but we can still put up a fight.
Track Name: Keep Me From Falling Apart
I’ve been walking around on eggshells in my mind
Looking for the peace that I just can’t seem to find
Since I said goodbye to you nothing seems right
A child in the dark reaching out to find some light
and I just don’t
want to be alone

You know I felt so lonely, trying to get you out
I know it’s for the brest, but I have my doubt
I need someone to fill the boidd that you left behind
I’m looking for the peace that I just can’t seem to find
and I just don’t
want to be alone

I just wish I could get you out of my mind
It feels like I have wasted so very much of my time
I cuddle this pillow in my arms alone tonight
I just wish that you could come here and hold me tight
and I just don’t
want to be alone

Please some one take this fragile broken heart
Help me find the pieces of myself I’ve come apart
Take care my friend ‘lest I be broken again
Only love can heal these broken pieces my friend
I just want
to be with you
I just want
to be loved by you

Pick up the pieces of this broken heart
Please keep me from falling apart
You are my friend, please don’t let me go
Take my mind off the one I had to let go
The one I had to let go
Off the one I had to let go.
Track Name: Weather The Storm
My tiny boat was blown
through this mighty storm
and I don’t know if I’d make it out alive
but I knew I had to try
yes, I knew I just had to try.

There’s no giving up this time
You know we just got to survive
survive…survive…survive…

You know we can weather this storm if we try
to say “we can’t” is just a lie
we use the same handicaps all the time
and giving up now would be a crime
we will never suceed if we never try
yes, I know we just got to try.

We got some hard times in our lives
all these lows getting in the way of our highs
the clouds are darkening the skies
the wind blowing rain into our eyes
sometimes it feels the end is near
and sometimes we give in to our fear.

Gotta batten down the hatches real tight
and we will make it through this night
trim the sails and tie ourselves to the mast
we will make it through if we stay steadfast
oh it’s never too late to weather the storm
no it’s never too late to weather the storm.

My tiny boat was blown
through this mighty storm
and I knew I’d make it out alive
I know I just had to survive
I just gotta weather this storm tonight
and everything will be allrightYou know everything will be alright
if we can weather the storm tonight
if we can weather the storm tonight
tonight, tonight
everything will be alright
alright, alright
you know we ain’t giving up this time
yes I know that victory is mine.
No, there ain’t giving up this time
Yes, I know that victory is mine!
