Track Name: Tramp Stamps and Birthmarks
the trouble with almost
always calling your name
is you see the finish line
and drop to your knees
until it's over
sweater and all
oh, you take the fall

and all the bruises
saved for love
were laid to rest
the day you were born

and you bow down
oh honey you bow down
you bow down to the man in charge
and we bow
baby we all bow down
we bow down to the man in charge

tramp stamps and birthmarks
no faces or names
just constant reminders of
all the places you came
where did they take you, my love
and what did they say
oh, how am i different from them
at the end of the day

i'll be your dirty slut
for the night
you can smack me around
until morning light

and i bow down
oh honey i bow down
i bow down to the man in charge
and we bow
baby we all bow down
we bow down to the man in charge

and you bow
oh honey you bow down
you bow down to the man in charge
and we bow
baby we all bow down
we bow down to the man in charge
Track Name: Do You Want Me Or Not?
i can see two ways to go from here
one is jump off
the other is stand very still
and wait around
and wait around
talk in circles 'til we stop making sense

and now we are miles apart
we're miles apart
it's breaking my heart
now we are miles apart
we're miles apart
it's breaking my heart

do you want me or not?
cuz i don't know
do you want me or not?

i just need a little more time
or maybe a lot
only time will tell
but this is hard
it's so fucking hard
being human is a pain in the ass

and now you are slipping away
you're slipping away
it's breaking my heart
now you are slipping away
you're slipping away
it's breaking my heart

do you want me or not?
cuz I don't know
do you want me or not?
Track Name: The Ghost Of Someone Else
maybe i dreamt you up
yeah baby i have been asleep
just waiting for you to come here
just waiting for you to come here
come here

please don't wake me up
i scare so easily
have you come here to steal my love?
have you come here to steal my love?
my love

just tell me what to do
cuz i already know i'm lost without you
am i the ghost of someone else?
am i the ghost of someone else?
someone

someone else
someone
someone else
Track Name: Loud Enough
will heaven help us?
are we loud enough?

when you're small you have no voice
you hide behind the other boys
fold your hands, do what you're told
so the devil doesn't take your soul

will heaven help us?
are we loud enough?
will heaven help us?
are we loud enough?

magic man up in the sky
we talk to you day and night
you should show your face sometime

will heaven help us?
are we loud enough?
will heaven help us?
are we loud enough?

are we loud enough?
Track Name: Turn Me Out (Album Version)
the past is here at all times
we bring it with us when we cum
but when we cum you can go all night
until i'm done

i give my body to you
you can do with it what you want
and if you let me get into you
i'll never stop

i'll never stop

i just want your love
i just want your love
i just want your love
i just want your love

the whore that lives inside me
still likes to put it in your mouth
and wrestle in the bedsheets
'til you pin me down

baby teach me everything
you learned about
come on, get into me
and turn me out

and turn me out

i just want your love
i just want your love
i just want your love
i just want your love
Track Name: Hologram
tell me something true and beautiful
cuz i've been chasing you and it's pitiful
you won't touch me at all but how can you?

i am a hologram
a hollowed out piece of a man

and when there is nothing around
there is nothing to lose
if there's no one left in your house
then no one can hurt you

you always dance alone
dance alone

i am a hologram

and when you've got nothing to live for
you've got nothing to prove
if there's no more love in your heart
then what good are you?

you always dance alone
dance alone

and when there is nothing around
there is nothing to lose
if there's no one left in your house
then no one can hurt you

and when you've got nothing to live for
you've got nothing to prove
if there's no more love in your heart
then what good are you?

you always dance alone
dance alone
Track Name: Radio Silent
boy you've gone radio silent
boy you've gone radio silent on me again
i wish you could make me feel better
just like a man with his shit together

now tell me what i mean by that
it's impossible, impossible
i said what i felt
and it was nonsense
but it was powerful, powerful
i'll take all the power i get
and use it on some grand vision
that will finally make me forget
i'm invisible, invisible

boy you've gone radio silent
boy you've gone radio silent on me again
i wish you could make me feel better
just like a man with his shit together

and you know what i mean by that
you are beautiful, beautiful
i said i've loved you from the moment we met
cuz you are wonderful, wonderful
can we take all the love that we get
and save it for some great distance
when one of us starts to forget
that we are magical, magical

boy you've gone radio silent
boy you've gone radio silent on me again
i wish you could make me feel better
just like a man with his shit together

just like a man with his shit together
Track Name: Go Away, Come Closer
be my light
my primary threat
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement

go away
come closer my friend
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement
emboldened by the size of our disagreement

be my light
my primary threat
Track Name: Everything You Touch Turns To Gold (Album Version)
when everything is yours
you never want for anything
because everything you touch turns to gold

you melt the hearts of angry men
far and wide
just like you have done to mine

so can i be yours?
i've never wanted anything more
take my hand, let's go explore the world

because everything is yours
because everything is yours

so can i be yours too?
i just want to stay here with you
because everything you touch turns to gold
because everything you touch turns to gold
because everything you touch turns to gold
Track Name: Nobody Knows The Trouble I've Seen
nobody knows the trouble i've seen
nobody knows my sorrow
nobody knows the trouble i've seen
glory hallelujah

sometimes i'm up
and sometimes i'm down
oh yes lord
sometimes to the ground
sometimes i'm up
and sometimes i'm down
oh yes lord
sometimes to the ground

still nobody knows the trouble i've seen
nobody knows my sorrow
nobody knows the trouble i've seen
glory hallelujah

and if you get there
before i do
please tell my friends
i'm coming, too
and if you get there
before i do
please tell my friends
i'm coming, too

still nobody knows the trouble i've seen
nobody knows my sorrow
nobody knows the trouble i've seen
glory hallelujah

oh, glory hallelujah
