Tell me where to take you
And we’ll go there in the night
Not sure if you noticed
But this little bird’s got flight
What are you lookin’ for?
Neurotic captivity?
If it’s not what you want
I got it, ‘cause I fly free

The only bird left in the tree
Went out to find what she could see
Those deep, dark waters looked fantastical
Inspired by mutant tyrannical
Educated enough to know she could
The little bird left the tree for brotherhood

The only bird left in the tree
Was briefly held in captivity
Caught in a deep, dark, demon disaster
Spiraling down faster and faster
Enlightened enough to find her wings
That bird got out and cut those strings

All I wanted was to fly
Soaring through the stormy sky
Soft unspoken wind gets me high
Like a sparkle in the night
So broken, I can’t even cry
All I wanted was to fly

All I wanted was to fly
Maybe making your day bright
Helping you to shine your light
Giving though you never tried
So broken, I can’t even cry
All I wanted was to fly

I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it

I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it
I don’t think you get it

Tell me where to take you
And we’ll go there in the night
Not sure if you noticed
But this little bird’s got flight
What are you lookin’ for?
Neurotic captivity?
If it’s not what you want
I got it, ‘cause I fly free

I Fly Free

Took a ride
To Chinatown
Lookin’ for what might be found
Diversity complexities
Always puzzled me
And I wanted to see what I could see

I arrived
In Chinatown
But there was no one around
Segregated atrocities
Left me on my knees
All I wanted was to be and be free

Your words are cruel (cruel)
Say I’m your favorite girl (girl)
Won’t ever be in your world (world)
Cause your words are cruel (cruel)

Ideas
Enlightened me
Subsequently frightened me
Chauvinistic proclivities
I could barely breathe
He liked me more when I aimed to please


Storybook
Of love letters
Couldn’t get any better
Intricately manipulated
So I could not see
He liked me better on my knees

Your words are cruel (cruel)
Say I’m your favorite girl (girl)
Won’t ever be in your world (world)
Cause your words are cruel (cruel)

Cruel

Hit the wall, heard a crash
Went back and asked, did I do that?
Pretended to care, but really I didn’t
Because I came here, to explode in an instant
Off the wall, shattering your paradigm
Take me to hell, I don’t care; I’ll investigate and make a rhyme

Cause cancer comes to those who wait
And jewels if you don’t hesitate
We’re the women of the world
And we have sex appeal
You think you can stop us
Are you for real?

We’re a tribe of warriors, movin’ and groovin’
They try to set up road blocks
We just turn around and use ‘em
‘Cause anything can be turned around
Torn apart and upside down
The clock struck 10 like the infinity symbol
In the mood to make something crumble

Like Marilyn in a bath tub, I’m mind controlled
Movin’ around like a puppet, something sweet to behold
‘Cause we know about Oz, and all the shit you pull
Problem with that is, we don’t follow your rule

Cause cancer comes to those who wait
And jewels if you don’t hesitate
We’re the women of the world
And we have sex appeal
You think you can stop us
Are you for real?

We’re a tribe of warriors, movin’ and groovin’
They try to set up road blocks
We just turn around and use ‘em
‘Cause anything can be turned around
Torn apart and upside down
Shattered your glass and exploded into ecstasy
Thought you were my worst nightmare, but what if that was me?

So really the question is, did you ever have us spelled?
And the answer is only momentarily, so we could learn about your hell
You see, we’re in control, and that’s just how it is
We’ll give you a smile and a kiss, and exclaim, “gee wiz”
Cause we know what you want to hear, and we know how to work it
Move around like a puppet for a while; finish our research and desert it

Cause cancer comes to those who wait
And jewels if you don’t hesitate
We’re the women of the world
And we have sex appeal
You think you can stop us
Are you for real?

We’re a tribe of warriors, movin’ and groovin’
They try to set up road blocks
We just turn around and use ‘em
‘Cause anything can be turned around
Torn apart and upside down
Also known as the comeback kids
We ignite Earth’s magnetic grids

Cause cancer comes to those who wait
And jewels if you don’t hesitate
We’re a tribe of warriors, movin’ and groovin’
They try to set up road blocks
We just turn around and use ‘em

Marilyn’s Bathtub Song

I could barely cry
The day I opened my eyes
Thought life had passed me by
But I was just lost in the night
He told me to listen to him
(He told me to listen)

I could barely breathe
When it confronted me
Thought I knew everything
But it was just the beginning
He told me to listen to him
(He told me to listen)

He said he didn’t deserve me
(Desert me, deserve me, desert me)
He told me not to worry
(Don’t worry, I’m worried, don’t worry)
He was on my team

I wanted her to feel my truth
(please feel me, feel my truth, please feel me)
I could see chains of abuse
(chained abuse, she abused, chained abuse)
She didn’t say goodbye

I could barely cry
The day I opened my eyes
Thought life had passed me by
But I was just lost in the night
I could barely breathe
When it confronted me
Thought I knew everything
But it was just the beginning
(He told me to listen to him)

He said he didn’t deserve me
I could barely cry
He told me not to worry
I could barely breathe

I wanted her to feel my truth
The day I opened my eyes
I could see chains of abuse
When it confronted me

Thought life had passed me by
But I was just lost in the night
Thought I knew everything
But it was just the beginning

I could barely cry
The day I opened my eyes
I could barely cry
She didn’t say goodbye

She Didn't Say Goodbye

Robo lady moves to the beat

Tear drop
Loved ‘til I fell off
It was a spiral getaway
Sometimes you have to go backwards to know the way

Hit a rock
Iceberg fell off
‘Cause this was just the tip of it
Physical reality’s the last to get hit

Hip hop
She moves like a bot
Squeak squeak
Not sure if there’s a heartbeat
Promo
Smilin’ for that daemon show
She don’t know, no she don’t know
That lady’s sinkin’ her own boat
(Robo lady)

I told her I loved her
But she’d be better off dead
Sometimes the best gift
Is off with your head
Too painful to watch you
Too tough to know
Plug yourself in to your headphones
(Robo lady)

I gave her a hug
But she wasn’t even there
Wanted her to love me
But she didn’t care
Too painful to watch you
Too tough to know
Plug yourself in to your dark tones

You leaned back and took a stab
But I was livin’ on White Tail Drive
Took a Sycamore to find
The house I lived when I was nine

Darlin’ they said we were cute
Thought all I did was daydream of you
Me and you, we ate that fruit
Nothin’ sweeter than me on you

I wanted to love you
(I wanted to love you)
Sometimes I still use you
(Sometimes I still use you)
‘Cause I can be cruel too
(Oh, oh, oh, cruel to you)
Baby, it was never about me and you
(Baby it’s never me and you)

When I caressed all that pretty trauma
I played with the darkness of your affection
‘Cause I needed distraction
(I needed distraction)
Tried to get lost in me and you
Wanted you to love me too
The most beautiful thing you’d ever seen
It was an illusion
You were my illusion
My trauma substitution

I wanted to love you
(I wanted to love you)
I wish I was sorry
(I wish I was sorry)
I know where you’re goin’
(Oh, oh, oh, where you go)
And sweetheart, I’m throwin’ an angel party
(Sweetheart, it’s an angel party)

Floating through the ashes of the mire
I wanted you to be my heart’s desire
But couldn’t find the fire
(Couldn’t find the fire)
We played like turtle doves in love
As Marilyn’s resurrection
And you whispered sweet nothings just because
It was an illusion
You were my illusion
All wrapped up in confusion

When I caressed all that pretty trauma
I played with the darkness of your affection
‘Cause I needed distraction
Floating through the ashes of the mire
I wanted you to be my heart’s desire
But couldn’t find the fire
Sometimes I still use you
‘Cause I can be cruel too
I wish I was sorry
I know where you’re goin’

You leaned back and took a stab
But I was livin’ on White Tail Drive
Took a Sycamore to find
The house I lived when I was nine

Sycamore Cleanse

There was something cyclical about their moves
Something fanatical in their blue suede shoes
I didn’t like it, but it was all that I knew
So I took a vacation to remember my youth

Om, om baby
fxxx your life
Go crazy
Take back all my energy
No more mediocrity

Om, om baby
If only you
Could save me
Can’t you read my mind?
You’re so far behind

Walkin’ through the sand
Sinking
An ocean of forgiveness
Seein’ the big picture
Used to be confused
Then I thought I was bruised
Lookin’ for a hug
Lookin’ for a hug

Gettin’ off the nightshift
Chaos
I exposed it
They beg for my attention
Can’t do that affection
He wanted me to know
Learning as I go
Learning as I go

Om, om baby
fxxx your life
Go crazy
Take back all my energy
No more mediocrity

Om, om baby
If only you
Could save me
Can’t you read my mind?
You’re so far behind

Take you on a shaman trance
Movin’ to an erotic dance
This ritual is spiritual
Unstoppable tornado

Like a goddess, dance through fire
It’s that unicorn desire
Healin’ like an animal
Ceremonial rodeo

Walkin’ through the sand
Sinking
Gettin’ off the nightshift
Chaos
This ritual is spiritual
Unstoppable tornado

Walkin’ through the sand
Sinking
Gettin’ off the nightshift
Chaos
Healin’ like an animal
Ceremonial rodeo

Something cyclical about their moves
Fanatical in their blue suede shoes
It was all I knew
Took a vacation to remember my youth

Take you on a shaman trance
Movin’ to an erotic dance
Lookin’ for a hug
(Lookin’ for a hug)

Like a goddess, dance through fire
It’s that unicorn desire
Just wanted to be loved
(Just wanted to be loved)

Found you on a cold, rainy day
Thought that maybe one day you’d stay
Loved the way you called me bae
‘Cause your desire took me higher
Yeah your desire took me higher

Walking through a desert storm
Barren and lacking, weathered and torn
Victim status won’t save your soul
‘Cause the storm will ride the desert ‘til you let go

Found you on a cold, rainy day
Thought that maybe one day you’d stay
Loved the way you called me bae
‘Cause your desire took me higher
Yeah your desire took me higher
‘Cause your desire left me inspired
Yeah your desire left me inspired

Trees of wisdom don’t cry when broken
With just one seed, new life’s awoken
‘Cause life’s abundant, and lack’s an illusion
Trees don’t get lost in human confusion
Just because I was lost
Doesn’t mean I can’t be found
Pruning plants makes them stronger
Despite starting from the ground

Found you on a cold, rainy day
Thought that maybe one day you’d stay
Loved the way you called me bae
‘Cause your desire took me higher
Yeah your desire took me higher

But you were the eye of the storm
Manikin mask that came unwired
Your manikin mask came unwired
And lovin’ you was just an illusion
I guess I got lost in human confusion
