Track Name: Butterfly Valves For Butterfly People
In a perfect world I'm a perfect guy and baby, you know it's all right. I got a lot of things to say about the times and baby, you know it's all right. I've come to know one thing - it's you that I despise but baby, you know it's all right. I still think that books are the perfect crimes.

It's all said and done. You have lost and I have won now I'm more than one to you. I'm two and three to me for show.

I'm riding shotgun for a trip down your retire but baby, you know it's all right. If I do one thing good I get to not admire, baby you know it's all right, the phony idols of mine that were left to burn, baby you know it's all right, in the fire, in the flames, in the burden of their names.

In a perfect world I'm a perfect liar, baby you know it's all right, in the fire, in the flames, in the burden of their names.
Track Name: Femme Fatale
She walks through open doors. Beauty steps upon the dirty floors. Leaning against the wall she lights a cigarette. So innocent. Her lips caress the paper death. Sweet scents of wanting with her every breath. A smile of sweet demise to fan the ugliness.

Tonight she'll fall in love with you. One reason not to follow through with your heart - she'll break that heart in two. Tonight she'll fall in love with you to prove that she cannot be controlled, that love cannot be bought or sold, that broken hearts come back tenfold, that it's the little things that hurt the most of all.

Now if I didn't hear you then I must not be listening. Talk to me. Be my baby doll or nothing at all.

You only deserve the best but I'm just like the rest. Behind this chest of bones lies a beaten, torn up, scratched, all worn out fragment of my broken heart.

Tonight she'll fall in love with you. One reason not to follow through with your heart - she'll break that heart in two. Tonight she'll fall in love with you and me.
Track Name: Charlie Don't Serf
I'm waiting for you even though I'm not allowed to wait for someone who can't catch up and let it be know that I'm really not that proud of what I'm doing for you right now. So what are you going to do? What are you going to say when that opportunity comes. I'm waiting for you even though I'm not allowed to wait for someone who's still in love and can't catch up to me.

I'm waiting for you now.
Track Name: Ragsdale
Missing teeth from biting into your city life. On every building there's a story and with every ending their lies you.

Father children with penicillin. Making babies during commercials. Turn the channel just in time to watch the news... today.

Stomping grounds for little robots with more food than plate. Shop around for better bargains to be saved.

Pop life story. Found that boring. Never guessed it. Driveway regrets are last attempts to getting on where you left off... today.
Track Name: Man Plus One
We'll set our higher standard. Put them in their place. This one untrained emotion causes me to face what no one wants.

No one wants this.

No time for you.

I'll set my standards higher. Stick it in your face. This one untrained desire causes me to place what no one wants.
Track Name: Mollycoddle Me
Your sympathy's my heroin. I'll sell myself for something worth the price to pay. I'll sell myself to you any day.

Read me like an open book. You are acting like a me without a you. I've come to realize my place in outer space.

Maybe I'd mind when I find something to take away this way.
Track Name: Vampire Boy
Vampire boy meets vampire girl. Slaves to every word they say. Feeding off of their dead life. The malnutrition leaves a mild heart attack.

Don't know what they want. Don't know what they like. Don't know who to love. They get fucked in the end.

Vampire boy meets vampire world. Working hard to get ahead. Ahead of what he does not know. Ahead of life, I guess, to die just like the rest.

Don't know what he wants. Don't know what he likes. Don't know where to run. He gets fucked in the ass.

Don't know what they want. Don't know what they like. Don't get me started on love.

This is your bright future.
