Call The Doctor

They want to socialize you
they want to purify you
they want to dignify, analyze and terrorize you

this is love and you can't make it
(look out they want what you know)
in a formula or shake me
(steal a kid break a heart steal the show)
I'm your monster I'm not like you
(peel back the skin see what's there)
all your life is written for you
(I'll never show you what's in here)

your life is good for one thing
you're messing with what's sacred
they want to simplify your needs and likes
to sterilize you

this is love and you can't make it
(don't need you to explain the pain)
in a formula or break me
(I can prove to you it's all fake)
I'm your monster I'm just like you
(she's dead but she can stand she can walk)
all my life is right before you
(call the doctor miracle she can talk)

call the doctor
(you)
call the doctor
(are)
call the doctor
(not)
call the doctor
(me)
call the doctor
(YOU)
call the doctor
(ARE)
call the doctor
(NOT)
call the doctor
(ME)

this is love and you can't break it
(this is not really me at all)
in a formula or make me
(stunt girl daring twirls watch me fall)
I'm no monster I'm just like you
(carbon copy same body different hearts)
all my life is right before me
(can't tell anymore the real parts)

Hubcap

Write in passing when there's time
hide the paper hide my mind
keep you quiet keep you blind
don't rock the boat don't read the sign

you're my co-pilot
not my god pilot

you take everything
you take what I want
you take everything
you take what I want

want from you is so defined
your suit and tie your shiny smile
your calm belief your piece of mind
I'll trade you for it then run then fly

you're my co-pilot
not my god pilot

you take everything
you take what I want
you take everything
you take what I want
you take what I want
you take what I want
you take what I want

Anonymous

she's worried she's worried she's worried she said too much
and talking I'm talking she's talking like books I read
it's easy it's easy it's easy to shut yourself off
never on the record it'll never show up

she wants to be to be anonymous
I sign I sign I sign anonymous

feel safe, inside, inside those well drawn lines
boyfriend, a car, a job, my white girl life
she swallowed the spider to catch, to catch that fly
but I don't know why, why she swallowed that lie

she wants to be to be anonymous
I sign I sign I sign anonymous
she wants to be to be like everybody else
I sign I sign I sign anonymous

not enough for you to know
not enough for you to own
not enough for you to know
not enough for you to own

she wants to be to be anonymous
I sign I sign I sign anonymous

these words are all I have
these words are who I am

Stay Where You Are

I can't find you
stay where you are
I'm in the dark
stay where you are

(I'm alright
I feel fine
you're my life
I'm alright)

she's dead if you want and that's me if you want
stuffed in the corner, "little girl lost"
and I claw and I scratch and I beg and I scream
I just need you to save me one last time
it's me if you want but it's not what I want
I want to burn up the place
set it on fire
she's bad because she wants to not be contained
I can't tell the truth, I can't speak this way

you can't find me
you're in the dark
I'm right here
stay where you are

(I'm alright
I feel fine
you're my life
I'm alright)

she's dead if you want and that's me if you want
stuffed in the corner, "little girl lost"
and I claw and I scratch and I beg and I scream
I just need you to save me one last time
it's me if you want but it's not what I want
I want to burn up the place
set it on fire
she's bad because she wants to set things on fire
I can't tell the truth, I can't speak this way

stay where, where, where you are
I'm where, where, where you are

(I'm alright
I feel fine
you're my life
I'm alright)

she's dead if you want and that's me if you want
stuffed in the corner, "little girl lost"
I claw and I scratch and I beg and I scream
I just need you to save me this time
it's me if you want but it's not what I want
I want to burn it up
set it on fire
she's bad because she wants to not be contained
I can't tell the truth, I won't speak your way

Good Things

got this feeling when I heard your name the other day
couldn't say it, couldn't make it go away
it's a hard place, can't be friends, we can't be enemies
it's just too much, feel the weight crushing down on my face

the hardest part is things already said
getting better, worse, I can not tell
why do good things never wanna stay?
some things you lose, some things you give away

broken pieces, try to make it good again
is it worth it, will it make me sick today
it's a dumb song, but I'll write it anyway
it's an old mistake, but we always make it, why do we

the hardest part is things already said
getting better, worse, I can not tell
why do good things never wanna stay?
some things you lose, some things you give away

this time, it'll be alright
this time, it'll be okay
this time, it'll be alright
this time, it'll be okay

the hardest part is things already said
getting better, worse, I can not tell
why do good things never wanna stay?
some things you lose, some things you give away
some things you lose, some things you give away

I Wanna Be Your Joey Ramone

It's fine
when it's all mine
it's on my wall
it's in my head
memorize it till I'm dead
it's yours
now I'm so bored

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna be your Joey Ramone
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
pictures of me on your bedroom door
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
invite you back after the show
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm the queen of rock and roll

I just don't care
are you that scared?
I swear they're looking right at me
push to the front so I can see
it's what I thought
it's rock 'n 'roll

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna be your thurston moore
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
wrestle on the bedroom floor
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
always leave me wanting more
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
throw away those old records

we go downtown
put on our best frowns
give me a chance
I know I can dance

yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I wanna be your Joey Ramone
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
pictures of me on your bedroom door
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
invite you back after the show
yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
I'm the queen of rock and roll

it's fine
'cause it's all mine

Taking Me Home

You come here to my work
You come here every day
To make sure i'm still here
You look at me that way

Rings on my fingers and
Bows in my hair
You think i'm your present
You'll unwrap me here

Is this a bad dream
Is this really my life
Well you wanna know
You'll show me tonight

Not for sale
Not your girl
Not your thing

I'm here on the counter
with no money down
For nine ninety-nine
You're taking me home

A dozen red roses
A cute little house
A cheap little ring
The deal is cut, now

Something is messed up here
Something isn't right
We're suppose to be free
I'm suppose to be mine

This part of my body
That you're pricing now
I'm cutting it off
I'm throwing it out

Not for sale
Not your girl
Not your thing

I got me mixed up with somebody else
I got me mixed up with somebody else

Taste Test

bad thoughts bad car bad drive
(where are you now)
a mess a lot a lie
(where are you now)
I can't be alone tonight
(where are you now)
I'm tired I'm hurt I'm fine

you've always got me guessing why
(that's how things happen to find you)
nothing the same after tonight
(and how am I gonna tell you)
nothing is gonna make it right
(don't start I'm not gonna fight you)
keep the house quiet dark tonight
(could be I'm not gonna find you)

one sour one sweet one lime
(where are you now)
taste both taste yours taste mine
(where are you now)
too late too long no light
(where are you now)
I can't see a thing tonight
(where are you now)

you've always got me guessing why
(that's how I happen to find you)
nothing the same after tonight
(and how am I gonna tell you)
nothing is gonna make it right
(don't start I'm not gonna fight you)
tell me what's going on in sight
(could be I'm not gonna find you)

you've always got me guessing why

My Stuff

say no way
we won't let them grow up that way
things have changed
but some things have stayed the same
hold on to what you want to
but some things are passed down anyway
hold on to what I want to
I don't think I know what I just

leave me without a god without belief without a cause
without a path that I should take
without a choice that I should make
such an easy thought and now I had it but I lost it
I guess I need your help and now I
guess I need your help and now I

say no way
don't let things go on this way
a clean slate
but it don't work that way
hold on to what you want to
but some things are passed down anyway
hold on to what I want to
I will have to own what I have

leave me without a god without belief without a cause
without a path that I should take
without a choice that I should make
such an easy thought and now I had it but I lost it
I guess I need your help and now I
guess I need your help and now I

it's not my stuff it's just too much
it's just my stuff it's just my

leave me without a god without belief without a cause
without a path that I should take
without a choice that I should make
such an easy thought and now I had it but I lost it
I guess I need your help and now I
guess I need your help and now I

I'm Not Waiting

I'm not waiting
till I grow up
I'm not waiting
till I grow up
to be a woman

go out on the lawn
put your swimsuit on
go out on the lawn
put your swimsuit

to be a woman

Heart Attack

heart attack
I wait for
hit and run
could happen any day

I'm walking into your house
'cause I really want to figure you out
it's always somewhere/someone new each day
as long as I'm not, I'm not

looking.. for me
looking.. for me

insomnia
popping pills
it's still too tight
it's never right

threw out everything I own again today
something's bound to give me a disease
I still feel like nothing next to you
because you want every, you want it

everything
new
everything
new, new

stress case undone preplanned no fun
I'm scared i've scared them all away
high strung let go loss of control
I'm scared I've scared sleep all away

heart attack
hit and run
