Track Name: nature
there was you
and there was me
and we were underneath
a tree
oh the sky
through a darkening eye
opened wide
and i am so tiny
next to the water that's shiny
hey rage, i feel you
rolling under the skin
all the way down
all the way in

behind the houses
beyond the walls and fences
into the wild world
with no defences
oh nature
you're a bad mother
you don't protect me
they use you against me

but it's true
that it's you
you keep me sane
when i'm trapped in suburbia
you're a cruel savage garden
where do i belong
i'm used
i'm abused
my body has
a burnt out fuse
i wasn't born to be alive
i was born to survive
Track Name: a girl need room
my life in pictures
my life of crime
i don't want you to look at this
cuz it belongs to me, it's mine
all my bad days
all my sad sad songs
i keep bound, living underground
where it's safe to be wrong

oh i'm wrong

i want to be all by myself
cuz it's the only thing i need
give me a room, give me four walls
with nothing orbiting me
gotta gold it down
gotta make it right
gotta keep it together
but day and night, tiny satellites
the go around forever

woah, good thing i'm strong

i can't make on single thing
in this crowded space
when i try to write when i try to sing
i always lose my place
i'm standing helplessly by
watch my ideas sink like stones
i need a, i need a
i need a room of my own

because a girl needs room
Track Name: parallel day
i leave my doors unlocked at night
pretend it's for no reason
i put out signs i hang a light
the appropriate colour to the appropriate season

uh huh

i'm looking for a way
i'm researching the ether
in a parallel world on a parallel day
we remain this way forever

and oh i dare you
to look into these eyes
and tell me what is true
and after all this time
after all that we've been through
baby i'm not coming back to you

oh i am a lonely animal
i am a proud pride of one
hunting through the night
with my little white light
i'm looking for my plane in the sun
i got a strong fear of rejection
gonna call it all in from all directions

and oh i dare you
to look into these eyes
and tell me what is true
and after all this time
after all that we've been through
baby i'm not coming back to you

so i leave my doors unlocked at night
pretend it's for no reason
i put out signs i hang a light
the appropriate colour to the appropriate season
uh huh uh huh
Track Name: whodo
you call me a fallen women
when i'm chained to the house
while i'm making it happen
sleeping in the bed i made myself
while i'm rocking my babies
rocking my babies one two three
i put it out, feed those hungry mouths
until they're bigger than me

and who do you think you are
who do you think you are
to call me down
i know who you are

making out in a ruined room
remember baby when we were two
it isn't hard to push farther
it isn't hard to get through to you
but how does it happen
how does this happen
is it me, is it you
is this just what we do

and who do you think you are
who do you think you are
to call me down
i know who you are

i'm out on the edge
nobody knows me
out on the edge where
nobody loves me
everybody takes a piece away
let me give you a piece of advice
i'm everything bad when you cross me twice
you'd be better
you just stay the fuck out of my way

it always used to make me smile
every single time i saw you
now you now i would walk a mile
i'd walk a mile just to avoid you
thought i was special, thought i was immune
i thought you'd be the one
but i was wrong

and who do you think you are
who do you think you are
to call me down
i know who you are
Track Name: softer
way up above
it looks like love
written in the sky
and hardest thing
when it comes to you
is that i have to say goodbye
i walk around with
my head down
i got nothing left to lose
cuz all my allies
they joined the other side
they rise up
they get confused

and i'm not even gonna bring my guard up
cuz i'm that soft now, you can't break me

what i say and what i mean
they're not two different things
and i'm here to stay
you can do anything
i just don't go away
yeah it's quiet now
there's hardly a sound
though i can feel the strain
of all those ideas
as they disappear
down the drain

and i'm not even gonna bring my guard up
cuz i'm that soft now, you can't break me

oh you up and left us
in the old old way
you said you don't believe
oh man, i only wish that
i coulda done something
i know you'd have done something for me
on that day you musta
been looking the other way
and you didn't see
me and all the others
all your sisters and brothers
from others mothers

and i'm not ever gonna bring my guard up
cuz i'm that soft now, you can't break me
Track Name: drug problem
i can't sleep in my bed
with all these creepy feelings
crushing me to death
a little depression over on the left
the place where you used to lie
when you slept beside me
but now you
you're long gone
you're long gone

and i got a drug problem
i don't got enough drugs
and all my tribulations
they add up to a mountain
a mountain of love
that i'll never get over
and i'm so far gone
i'm so far gone
i can't let go
i can't let go

and i like it
on my knees
at your feet
my hair twisted in your fists
don't ever let me go
i don't ever want to be free
cuz i don't want to know
i don't want to complicate it

cuz i'm so far gone
i'm so far gone
i've given up
i've given up
cuz i know
that i'm the fuckup
Track Name: man who can go (i need a)
baby, you can't rely on me
i'm no good with time or with measure
i disappear under that kind of pressure
baby, get up on your own two feet
cuz if you lean on me i'll fall over
i don't operate well under cover

and i need you
to be stronger
to try a little harder
a little bit longer
i know you wanna
know what it's like
to ride beyond the limit
but it's no good
if all of your heart
isn't in it

baby, you're sleeping three walls over
yeah you're lying and lying and lying
in the arms of your beautiful model lover
maybe we don't ever get it right
yeah i been leaving my window wide open
when it's high time for that window to be closing

cuz i need you
to be stronger
to try a little harder
a little bit longer
i know you wanna
know what it's like
to ride beyond the limit
but it's no good
if all of your heart
isn't in it

cuz i need a man who can go
oh baby i need, i need a man who can go

and if it's you
well you better come through
right about now
because i need
i need a man
who can go

and if it doesn't come true
well it's too bad for you
cuz i know what you're gonna say
looking back you'll be calling me
the one that got away
oh you'll be calling me
the one that got away
oh yeah, you're looking at
the one that got away
Track Name: a single song
now that i don't have you
i can do anything i want to
i can stay out late every night
and i do, yeah i do

i go downtown
hang around in rooms
though they abound i tell you
they don't move me
always with something to prove
i might pick one up
might bring one home with me
to meet my need
but it doesn't mean
anything

what it means to be
i am not wrong
and i'm not afraid of one
cuz i'm strong
if you could only imagine
you're the star attraction and belong
sing a single song

a thousand men standing end to end
working overtime to be my boyfriend
working for a year and a day
couldn't build a bridge big enough
to carry me away from this
cuz it's what it is
where i belong
singing a single song

what it means to be
i am not wrong
and i'm not afraid of one, cuz i'm strong
if you could only imagine
you're the star attraction and belong
sing a single song

i coulda stayed, had some fun
but instead i went on alone
walking down the street
on my own two feet
all the way uphill til i make
my way home sweet home
let the tv drone
fall asleep with my boots on

what it means to be
i am not wrong
and i'm not afraid of one, cuz i'm strong
if you could only imagine
you're the star attraction and belong
sing a single song
Track Name: not the one
it's hard to be
hard to be me
walking along a line so fine
and you can't see
what i got inside me
right over you eyes
every time

cuz i'm not the one
i'm not the one
who's gonna love you, oh no
i'm not the one want
why can't you see
it'a hard to be me
there's nothing guaranteed

i'm not the one
i'm not the one
i'm not the one
i'm not the one
who's gonna love you always
i'm not the one you want
but i'm good for a ride
every time
so long as, long as
so long as you know

i'm not the one
i'm not the one
i'm not the one
i'm not the one
Track Name: the real thing
stand by some man
half your life
give your hand
become somebody's wife
then you fall
land in the world of men
and you'd give it all
to just be a girl again

you say
i'm not ready
but i'm pure
i'm not ready
but i'm sure

i'm the real thing baby
how could you raise
your fist to me
i'm the softest thing
i'm the mother of children
how could bring me down
in front of them

i'm not ready
ready for this
i'm not ready
so i quit
cuz i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
baby

she's driving along in her old beat up car
she doesn't know exactly where she's going
the only thing she knows for sure is that she's going very very far
and the road is a ribbon cutting on through the night
and the trees stand like centuries on the sidelines
guarding her flight
two little angels
halos forming in the back
as he disappears into a ghost of himself
she gets back on track back on track back on track back on track

i'm not ready
ready for this
i'm not ready
but this is it
cuz i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
i'm the real thing
