Track Name: Spiderette
Shed the mirror, shed the light,
Standing on the candle white
Hands stuck in the crystal ball
Face to face against the wall
Spider webs to catch my fall
Severed limbs I use to crawl

Shed the mirror, shed the light
Hold me by the candle white
Hands stuck in the crystal ball
Face to face against the wall
Spider webs to catch my fall
Severed limbs I use to crawl

Innocently, violently,
Innocently, violently,
Innocently, violently touching me
While I was sleeping,
Innocently violently touching me
While I’m asleep.
Track Name: Walking Sleep
You rode a horse through the second wave
You threw bodies in the human waste
I can’t find a heart to beat
Like nails to feet, I walk alone-
Walking back again,
Back to my machine
Back to my machine,
Back to back to back.

Germs, germs, they can be mean
And they can be green
But they’re on your team, so
So don’t you scream, scream in your

Sleep, walking, walking sleep,
Sleepwalking, walking sleep

You made monsters out of naked space
You killed a girl just to see her face
I can’t find a pulse that beats
Like a sheet, she sleeps alone

Sleepwalking, walking back again
Sleepwalking, walking back to my machine

Germs, germs, they can be mean
And they can be green
But they’re on your team, so
So don’t you scream, scream in your

Sleep, walking, walking sleep,
Sleepwalking, walking sleep
Sleepwalking, walking sleep,

I dream so I can talk to you again
I do it every night I need you back
They shot you in the chest
You’ll burn them soon.
Track Name: It's A Horrible Day
Look at this day
It’s a horrible day,
Look at this day
It’s a horrible day,
Look at this day,
It’s a horrible day
Look at this day
It’s a horrible day
I was going my way
But I couldn’t look away

And we need more water
For this circle jerk
Talking to me like I care
Cat spray in my hair,
I might regret this
But I have to say
I’m trying to break the ice
Tired to be so fucking nice

Daddy never told me why
Daddy never told me why!

Why is it that every time I walk in
my body becomes a hole? Why are
there no women here and why
do your eyes look like claws?
And why is it so hard to sing
a long to this song? My heart’s
a package being thrown around
in this body. If I can’t give a name
to it, I can’t stay with you.

Look at this day
It’s a horrible day
Look at this day
It’s a horrible day
Look at this day
It’s a horrible day
I was going my way
But I couldn’t look away

You’re my slave
I’m gonna cum on your face

And it feels like danger
When you act this strange
Walking fire for a dare
Cat spray in your hair
I’m trying to roll the dice
Landing snake eyes every time
I might regret this
But I have to say
I’m not okay at all!

Daddy never told me why
Daddy never told me why!

You look perfect with yr wedding
bands and tailored suits talking
about gay rights. It must be nice
sitting on top of this pyramid,
telling me my lips are too red
and my body’s too small, defining
my worth by putting measuring
tape around my bicep. You ask
to take me home without inviting
all of me. How much do I have
to leave behind to ride the rainbow?
Track Name: Are Friends Electric?!?!?!?!?!?
Gary Numan original lyrics:

It’s cold outside
And the paint’s peeling off of my walls
There’s a man outside
In a long coat, grey hat, smoking a cigarette

Now the light fades out
And I’m wondering what I’m doing in a room like this
There’s a knock on the door
And just for a second I thought I remembered you

So now I’m alone
Now I can think for myself
About little deals
And issues
And things that I just don’t understand
Like a white lie that night
Or a slight touch at times
I don’t think it meant anything to you

So I open the door
It’s the `friend’ that I’d left in the hallway
Please sit down
A candle lit a shadow on a wall near the bed

You know I hate to ask
But, are `friends’ electric?
Mine’s broke down
And now I’ve no one to love

So I find out your reason
For the phone calls and smiles
And it hurts
And I’m lonely
And I should never have tried
And I missed you tonight
So it’s time to leave
You see this means everything to me
Track Name: A Mother
Lipstick red upon the wall
Granny I know that’s not all
Did you lose yr teeth again
Or was it just your mind?
Was it just your teeth?
We can chatter all we want
About the place you used to haunt
We’ll go back with out darkest hands
And write our names on that old fence

You said you could never be
A mother to someone like me
You said I could never be
The daughter I used to be
And all the cherries we used to eat
Met their fate on George Washington’s tree
And all the cookies we used to bake
Burned like mother at the stake

You said you could never be
A mother to someone like me
You said you could never be
A mother, a mother!

Lipstick red upon the wall
Granny I know that’s not all
Let’s take a walk down memory lane
Put on yr coat I’ll get yr cane
We can chatter all we want
About the place you used to haunt
We’ll pretend that we’re still there
And I’ll comb the webs out of your hair

Chorus Repeats
Track Name: Heteronightmare
Dressed as the Plague on Halloween,
On Halloween, a right winged dream
To lock my lips with your red state
To take you out on a bloody date!!!

You said I shouldn’t
I said you will
Your penis wouldn’t
I go for the kill

Kill! Kill!

I strip off your muscle Tee
To see what you mean to me
You say ‘baby you look pretty’
I say ‘well do you really see me?’
You say ‘wait you’re not a chick!’
I said I am, but I have a dick!!
I will lie right next to you
And watch yr nightmares coming true

True, true, true!

You censor me
I’m sensing you
You’re kissing me
I’m killing you

You said I shouldn’t
I said you will
Your penis wouldn’t
I go for the kill

‘But all homosexuals are not passive,
some resort to violence. One never knows
what a homosexual is about. He may
appear normal, and it may be too late
to discover he is mentally ill'

You say ‘please put down the axe’
I like that you politely asked
Except I do this for my sisters
And all the bruises from their misters
Left on roads like dead raccoons
Naked to the mother moons
I will lie right next to them
In a grave of bloody gems.

You censor me
I’m sensing you
You’re kissing me
I’m killing you
(x2)
Track Name: Trigger Warning
Sep: Wouldn't you say it's a fucked up world
Being told yr a boy when you're a girl?
Taking what you need for ejaculation
Choking it down for the validation
Crystal: I'm not really sure what yr trying to say
Did you make it up just to feel okay?
Sep: I don't really mean to cut you off
But it's hard enough just trying to talk
I was there in the alley on my knees
Crystal: What was his name again?
Sep: Ronny,
He said he 'd kill me if I told a soul
Drown with the secret until I'm old
Crystal: Is that why you cry every time you fuck?
everytime yr weak everytime yr stuck?
Sep: I bleed like a queer with a jigsaw heart
Living as a mess and calling it art

And I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
But the thoughts are heavy and I start to crack
(x3)
Is that why you cry every time you fuck?
Every time yr weak, every time yr stuck?
I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
But the thoughts are heavy and I start to crack

Crystal: So when did you start to block it out?
Have you told yr mom what yr all about?
Sep: I told her how he locked his room
With me inside and his cock my doom
Crystal: She didn't believe a word you said I bet
Left you with a kiss as you crawled into bed
Sep: Can't really blame him-
Crystal: Please stop,
You have every right to hate his guts
Sep: I hurt with anger and I can't trust
Hang up my will and join the dust
I swell with pain when I smell his breath
Begging for answers before my death
Crystal: How can you bare all this guilt and shame
If I were you I'd change my name
Sep: As a broken fag I swear I'm strong
Sometimes I slip and it all goes wrong
Living in panic while feeling the breeze
Holding my heart as my blood runs free
I can't really feel what I can’t touch
It hurts to love when I can't say much
Crystal: I can tell now that you're not this size
You're a lot smaller than your disguise

I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
I wish I could act like I didn’t look back
But the thoughts are heavy and I start to crack
(x3)
Back!
Track Name: Rejects
A toast to no future
And a world without saviors,
You’re not going anywhere
While we remain ill,
This is the final level,
Take it as you will.
Our dreams are eager to swallow
Our bodies down their pipes,
So you offered us a living
In exchange for our lives.
We knew it was ransom
And we said no to it.

He said no and she said no
And they said no to it.
He said no and she said no
And they said no to it.

They’ll leave me here for dead
With yr voice inside my head
I can’t fucking take it
I can’t fucking breathe
I’m going to fucking kill myself
I’m so fucking scared
There’s nothing I can be
You know this about me!

Escape seemed impossible
When we turned to face the boss
He saw that we were weakened
And he offered us his claws.

We said no, we said no!
We said no, we said no!

No! No! No! No! No!
No! No! No! No! No!
No! No! No! No! No!
Nooooooooooo!!!!!!!!

How are we the rejects
When we rejected it?
How are we the rejects
When we rejected it?
How are we the rejects
When we rejected it?
Track Name: Grave Robber
Raising the door to her coffin
And you ask: “do you recognize her?”
“Wed to my father,
the happiest of brides, grave robber.”
Holding her body rotting
She’ll dance with me,
Her carcass crawling in my arms
And he gives me her rings
With rust and dust,
Coating the stones,
Please give her away.

Counting sheep, she sleeps again
(Day to day, we are filth)
She must have known he was the weasel
(Gray is gray, we are still)
He wanted her blood, her virgin blood
He was her master,
She was all alone,
He broke inside her pubic bone

Blood on the flowers
A parade has come
We dance, we wine
We feast again!
Light at the windows
My husband has returned
You will come to love yr father

Must I love you?
Yes, child
Can I look through?
Just wait
Do you love her?
No, child
Is this the end?
Just wait
Has she left me?
Yes, child
Where are my earrings?
They’re gone
Must I love you?
Yes, child
Then I’m yours
(x2)

Graverobber, I want the life of a loved one
In my arms, and he pulls the rings like teeth
And he gives them to me, it’s a gift for free,
Looking underground for my father’s will
Dreading the haunt of a necrophilic white eye
To lie inside a tomb of doom
The feeling is meaningless

We change rooms as the haunting subsides,
the window asking for its veil to be lifted,
for the light to claim us in eternal love. The
moment growing ominous as circus filth
mate with shadows behind corpses, lifting
coffin doors to whisper curses in between
our vows. I look to the mirror and watch my
reflection decorating father’s trident with
mother’s favorite rings, begging her to look at me.
All she sees is another body.

Must I love you?
Yes, child
Can I look through?
Just wait
Do you love her?
No, child
Is this the end?
Just wait
Has she left me?
Yes, child
Where are my earrings?
They’re gone
Must I love you?
Yes, child
Then I’m yours

Blood on the flowers
A parade has come
We dance, we wine
We feast again!
Light at the windows
My husband has returned
You will come to love yr father.

Your father, you will come
To love your father
Your father, you will
Come to love your father.
