Track Name: Fun Mistake
Why is it every girl I meet’s
A little off in the head?
There’s something ‘bout a loco girl
That makes her better in bed
But I’m not sure the benefits
Outweigh the risks
It’s like throwing dynamite
Into the middle of the mix
Your craziness is probably
More than I can take
But let me tell you this my dear
You look like you’d be a fun mistake to make
Yeah, you look like you’d be a fun
Mistake to make alright
So let me make mistakes with you
Over and over and over tonight
Whoa!
When all is said and done
I know I’ll be worse for wear
It’s hard to wash a psycho girl
Completely outta your hair
They always leave their mark on me
And usually it’s a bruise
You can’t win with a cuckoo bird
But then again you can’t lose
Your craziness is probably
More than I can take
But let me tell you this my dear
You look like you’d be a fun mistake to make
Yeah, you look like you’d be a fun
Mistake to make alright
So let me make mistakes with you
Over and over and over tonight
Whoa!
Track Name: Lethe's Water
I had such big plans for us, now I’m so let down
Things just didn’t work out right, I feel like a clown
Why’d I get my hopes so high? I fell for you too fast
Should have figured from the start it wouldn’t last
There’s so much I would have done for you, now you’ll never know
You could have been queen of my world if you’d have let love grow
I want to drink the waters of the river Lethe
Purge the sadness, ease the pain, and set my soul free
Waters take me back to the time before we met
River Lethe, please help me forget
Mystic waters cleanse my mind, clear my memory of your stain
Can’t eat, or sleep, or anything, your presence burns my brain
We could have been great together; you must have felt it too
Did you find me demanding? Did you think I would hurt you?
You couldn’t be more wrong – your happiness was my desire
Lethe escape you banks, let your waters quench this fire
I want to drink the waters of the river Lethe
Purge the sadness, ease the pain, and set my soul free
Waters take me back to the time before we met
River Lethe, please help me forget
I told you things that I’d never told
I thought you were someone I could trust
Did that scare you? Did I move too fast?
Did I tell you too much?
Wish I could forget you, wish I could move on
Because any chance of a romance 'tween us is gone
I want to drink the waters of the river Lethe
Purge the sadness, ease the pain, and set my soul free
Waters take me back to the time before we met
River Lethe, please help me forget
To forget
Track Name: Ideal Woman
Five foot six, weight one oh three
Auburn hair, age thirty-three
Hazel eyes and healthy tan
Not interested in a one night stand
Likes 30 Rock and working out
Ryan Adams, Beck, No Doubt
Wants to dance and shoot some pool
Thinks that honesty is cool
She’s an ideal woman – too good to be real
She’s an ideal woman – hearts are hers to steal
Money’s no priority, she seeks spirituality
Love’s children and does her part
Supports charity and the arts
Wants to find a soul mate who
Will be there when she is blue
She just doesn’t understand
Why she can’t find her ideal man
She’s an ideal woman – too good to be real
She’s an ideal woman – hearts are hers to steal
Sometimes we compromise, lower our standards
Settle for what comes along, marking off the words
Lists of what we want in life never seem to last
They are soon forgotten when hope’s part of the past
She’s an ideal woman – too good to be real
She’s an ideal woman – hearts are hers to steal
Track Name: Dolled Up
I wanna take you out
To the local rock show
So get dressed to the nines
Off to The Blue Note we'll go
I'll get your out on the floor
And watch you shake it all night
So get you make-up on
And fix your hair up nice
Dolled up! That's what you need to be
Dolled up! Set your wild child free
We've got places to go and people to see
So baby, get dolled up for me.
And when you get on the floor
And start shaking what you've got
You'll make the other girls all green
Because you're so damn hot
And you that all know the men and boys
Are liking what they see
Just remember at the end of the night
I'm taking you home with me
Dolled up! That's what you need to be
Dolled up! Set your wild child free
We've got places to go and people to see
So baby, get dolled up for me.
Dolled up! That's what you need to be
Dolled up! Set your wild child free
We've got places to go and people to see
So baby, get dolled up for me.
We've got places to go and people to see
So baby, get dolled up for me.
Track Name: Coffees Past
Standing alone a the end of the day
At the corner of Ninth and Cherry
Remembering a girl I let get away
The feeling is still so very
Sweet like mocha
Strong like espresso
Rich as Italian roast
Warm on a cold night
Kept me up late
Now I’m a decaf ghost
Haunting the places we used to go
Just me an my reflection
Craving the buzz I used to know
When the menu still had my selection
Sweet like mocha
Strong like espresso
Rich as Italian roast
Warm on a cold night
Kept me up late
Now I’m a decaf ghost
Sweet like mocha
Strong like espresso
Rich as Italian roast
Warm on a cold night
Kept me up late
Now I’m a decaf ghost
I’m just a decaf ghost
Track Name: Admission
I don’t wanna send you on a big guilt trip – but I can’t keep this inside – gotta let it rip
Even though I told you we were through – my heart tells me it’s not true
So even if you don’t give a damn about me – I still care about you
I don’t know why I didn’t stick it out – so what if things weren’t perfect and I had my doubts
Something’s better than nothing, true? Someone tell me what to do
So even if you don’t give a damn about me – I still care about you
Now I’m feeling lonely, you’re out having fun - so now I’m thinking “hey what have I done?”
Want to tell you I miss you and I’m feeling blue, but talking to your voicemail doesn’t do
So even if you don’t give a damn about me – I still care about you
I bet you’re out dancing at our favorite place, someone new is holding you close - face to face
Can’t get you off my mind ‘cause you’re stuck like glue – always thinking ‘bout what we used to do
So even if you don’t give a damn about me – I still care about you
Track Name: Oh Allie
I wish I had the words to tell you exactly how I feel
Not that it even matters since I made this losing deal
You were the sweetest lover that I had ever had
But now you’re with someone else and I’m alone and sad
Oh Allie, I miss you so much
Oh Allie, your gentle, loving touch
Your smile and your kindness, your open, brilliant mind
It breaks my heart to think that I left you behind
We were never meant to be more than lovers and friends
We knew our time together had to come to an end
Your heart was on loan to me, but I gave mine away
And even though I let you go, I wish you would have stayed
Oh Allie, I miss you so much
Oh Allie, your gentle, loving touch
Your smile and your kindness, your open, brilliant mind
It breaks my heart to think that I left you behind
I know that you’re happy now and I wish you the best
But my love for you lives on and never lets me rest
I can’t stop thinking about you and I never will
You will never leave my heart until it stands still
Oh Allie, I miss you so much
Oh Allie, your gentle, loving touch
Your smile and your kindness, your open, brilliant mind
It breaks my heart to think that I left you behind
Track Name: Thrift Shop Guitar
She grew up in the suburbs of a Midwest college town
But she had dreams of stardom she just couldn't keep down
She wanted to be a singer in a rock and roll band
She got a used guitar so she could try her hand
She bought it from the thrift shop down on the business loop
Found a drummer and a bassist and formed themselves a group
In her fantasies she’s rockin’ out and she’s livin’ large
The band got it together, escaped her dad’s garage
But she knows it’s just a dream and she won’t get far
While she stuck here playin’ a thrift shop guitar
She went off to college and the band just fell apart
She knew that it was something that was doomed from the start
But the music was always there inside her head
She wrote lyrics in a notebook that nobody read
Then senior year on Christmas break visiting her folks at home
She found her old guitar sitting in the corner all alone
In her fantasies she was rockin’ out and she was livin’ large
The band got it together, escaped her dad’s garage
But she knew that it was just a dream and she wouldn’t get far
While she stuck there playin’ a thrift shop guitar
Now many years have passed, she has a daughter of her own
About to turn 14 she can’t believe how time has flown
One day her daughter comes to her, excitement in her voice
She wants to learn an instrument and she’s made her final choice
So with teardrops in her eyes, she gives her the guitar
The one she thought so long ago would make her a rockstar
In her fantasies she was rockin’ out and she was livin’ large
The band got it together, escaped her dad’s garage
But she knew that it was just a dream and she wouldn’t get far
While she stuck there playin’ a thrift shop guitar
She takes her daughter into town to the music store
She feels just like a kid again when she walks through the door
So many fine guitars are here but one catches her eyes
A red sunburst Les Paul and that’s the one she buys
Then she gives her daughter the notebook with all her songs
And tells her that they’re finally in the place that they belong
Track Name: Violet Wand and the Wartenberg Wheels
Down to the dungeon on Saturday night
The freaks are all bound, and feeling alright
Past the velvet ropes that are tied so tight
In leather and silver, a beautiful sight
They’re here for the shocks and the pinpricks of fear
It’s Violet’s song that they’ve all come to hear
She can whisper softly or scream like a banshee
She whips the crowd into frenzy
This band is so tight; you’ve got to take care
They’ll take your last breath, leave you gasping for air
Pleasure and pain is all you can feel
Violet Wand and the Wartenberg Wheels
By the end of the show, you’re fit to be tied
Your senses are shattered; your nerves are all fried
Your skin will be flushed and hot to the touch
I tell this band, well they’re really too much
With glimpses of thigh, she drives men insane
She has a power that’s hard to explain
And though they’re not here to see ass or tit
She somehow makes all the girls submit
This band is so tight; you’ve got to take care
They’ll take your last breath, leave you gasping for air
Pleasure and pain is all you can feel
Violet Wand and the Wartenberg Wheels
This band is so tight; you’ve got to take care
They’ll take your last breath, leave you gasping for air
Pleasure and pain is all you can feel
Violet Wand and the Wartenberg Wheels
Violet Wand and the Wartenberg Wheels
