Track Name: Misfortune
Should you ever smash a mirror
Misfortune falls for seven years.

And if a cat should cross your path
You better hope the cat's not black.

Ding, ding, ding, a ding a dang dong
The tree is high and the rope long.

Fee fie foe, fie fiddly dee dum
And fire burns most everyone.

Oh no

Drop the fork and drop the knife
Drop a spoon, see who arrives.

But don't you drop that old dishcloth
Your luck will turn, your heart will stop.
Track Name: 3000 Megatons Of Love
If only love was a bomb
I'd be bombing everyone.

If love was a hurricane
I'd fly it over everything.

I know, I'm packed full of love
From my hair to my heels

If only love was wildfire
I burn down the fields.

I can't put it into words
The way I feel about you darling
But these are words that could express
it best.

I'm gonna bomb you with my love.
Carpet bomb you with my love.
I'm gonna explode
3000 megatons of love.

If only love was a ring
I would put it round your finger

If love was a murderer
I'd certainly let it linger.

I'm packed full of love
From my toes to my crown.

If only love was King Kong
I'd never put you down.

Just for you
3000 megatons
Track Name: Stumble On
Mistakes were made, I know that for a certainty
We were never meant to walk alone.
But every heart is hardened by hard circumstance.
Everyone's got wounds now turned to stone.

And we've been casting shadows as we walk towards the light
Hand in hand we stumble through it all.
And I'm so very happy that it's your hand in mine
To lift me up as we stumble on.

And so we fall in love.
Though trouble surrounds us, yes trouble enough
Though the storms they may rage
They can't wash us away
The fire inside us burns on.

Honesty's a policy but who can say
That it's better than the lies we're taught to tell.
There's a place reserved for each and everyone of us
It's just getting there that ends up being hell.

And we've been breaking bottle 'gainst the walls of Jericho.
We've been singing songs all along.
And I'm so very happy that it's your voice I know
Will lift me up as we stumble on.
Track Name: True Crime Television
I'm having trouble
getting to sleep at night
I think we watch too much true crime television

Darling, don't you see that it's just too much for me
The death and the murder and the woe
And it's on
All day long
Like some miserable song
That keeps repeating
On and on.

Sweetheart, it's enough, Oh, can't we take a break
Can't we watch comedies instead?
Cause my head is filling up with
horror and despair,
Don't you care?
Don't you care?
Track Name: Let's Begin Again
I wanna get outta here, she said, I wanna go.
But there’s nowhere or me on the planet earth, nowhere I’d feel at home.
I don’t even feel comfortable in my skin.
She took a swallow of her whiskey neat
And chased it with Vicadin.
She laughed at me and said,
“Let’s begin again.”

I wanna get outta here but I never wanna die.
I think that maybe in a thousand years
The future might be alright.
I know that I am just a silly, silly girl
But it is simply so broken, a beautiful, broken world.
She laughed and smiled at me and said,
“Let’s being again.”

As we were leaving
Oh, she started crying
I simply just held her
She said, Oh, I’m dying
And I, don’t know why

And when we got there
Oh, she started crying
I simply just held her
She said, "Oh, I’m dying
And I don’t know why
I’m alive."
Track Name: The Love You Keep
Father are you bothered that I never care to call
I guess you're never bothered 'cause you don't call at all.
I guess maybe it's true
What they say about you
You're only a good as
The people you use.

Mister, will you kiss her when she says she has to leave
And she's never coming back
'Cause she's taking off with me
Oh, we'll take in the sights
And we'll stay out all night
And we'll never look back
Looking left to the western lights.

Oh, the love that you keep hidden.
Is the love that no one sees.
And the love you've never given.
Is the love you don't receive.


Lovely little lady, oh, why so full of rage
I know that things are hard but there's a better way
Sure, life is unfair
But the children are scared.
And shouting all day
Well, that's just gotta wear you down.

Me, myself, and I, yes I'm talking to you three
Well, I hope you get well soon and please take care of me
Cause I'm all that I got
And surer than not
My mind's gonna break
My heart's gonna stop.

Me, myself, and I, oh' what'cha gonna do
You gotta love yourself if you want the others to
And I know that it's hard
And I know that you're scared
But it's better in here
So much better than out there.
Track Name: Fierce Butterflies
My voice is so very small, it's a wonder that I'm heard at all
Like a fierce butterfly I try to fly through the squall.
These are a few of my words, it's a miracle they're ever heard.
Like a fierce butterly I duke it out with the birds.

And though I fight, I'll surely die.
But while I fight I am alive, so I say let it come down.

And when it's all stacked against you
And when there's nothing you can do, ooh, you can fight.

So this is my tiny song, soon enough it will be gone.
Like a fierce butterfly, I take the windshield head on.

Once I dreamed that I might, live a significant life
But like all my dreams, upon waking it seems that they die.
Once, I chanced upon hope, but hope is a very long rope.
And with enough length, and so little strength, you will choke.

But I will fight, and I will die.
For while I fight I am alive, so I, say let it come down.

And when it's all stacked against you
And when there's nothing you can do, ooh, you can fight.

So this is my tiny song, soon enough it will be gone.
Like a fierce butterfly, I take the windshield head on.
Track Name: Something Worth Fighting For
Life can be hard,
Life can be cruel,
Oh, There's no rules to read
There's not much anything
That turns me on, anymore.

But since I found you
I've turned around
And now I finally see
Something worth fighting for.
Something worth dying for, darling.

But I know that there will be
hard times too
Cause life it never seems
to just go smooth.
But I promise you that I will do
everything that I can do.

I never want to hurt you, darling.
I never want to break your heart.
I always want to love you, lover.
I never want to be apart
from you, my love
from you, my sweetheart.

Some people are dumb
Some people are cruel
Some people are fools, you see
Some are quite miserable
And others make misery.

But since I found you
I am not doomed
To be one of these.
I can be better now,
I will be better now
You'll see.
Track Name: The Cost Of Everything
Shelly was exhausted and she never ate dinner 'cause she worked two jobs
and could never fit it in her schedule.
Shelly rubbed her belly cause she knew that she was late again,
she said a little prayer and went back to her tiny section
She was gonna be a movie star someday
At least that's what she thought when she moved to LA
But all she wants right now
Is twenty-four hours of sleep.
All she wants to do is keep up.
With the bills, and the rent, and the high price of gasoline
All she wants to do is keep up
With the price of diapers and the cost of everything.
All she wants to do is keep up
With her car, so filthy and the dishes, oh they're never done.
All she wants to do is keep up
'Cause there's nowhere to go, nowhere that she can run.

Shelly's youngest baby got some sorta infection, so she waited at the clinic
but the minutes they kept adding up.
Three hours later, her baby got some medicine, and she got written up
For showing up late again.
She was gonna be a movie star someday
At least that's what she thought when she moved to LA
But all she wants right now
Is twenty-four hours of sleep.
All she wants to do is keep up.
With the bills, and the rent, and the high price of gasoline
All she wants to do is keep up
With the price of diapers and the cost of everything.
All she wants to do is keep up
With her car, so filthy and the dishes, oh they're never done.
All she wants to do is keep up
'Cause there's nowhere to go, nowhere that she can run.

There was a murder suicide today in Echo Park.
A mother of two toddlers, it breaks our heart.
But we know that he was evil.
We know that she was wrong.
And we ask everybody to stay strong.

All you gotta do is keep up
With the bills, and the rent, and the high price of gasoline.
All you gotta do is keep up
With the price of diapers and the cost of everything.
All you gotta do is keep up
With your cars, so filthy and the dishes, oh they're never done.
All you gotta do is keep up.
'Cause there's nowhere to go, nowhere that you can run.
