Track Name: Catholic Riffraff and the Allston Amazon
sunday morning i'm walkin the street
my headache blasting, some glass in my feet
skippin first communion cause i don't care
look up right in time to see her standing there

i thought it was a hangover but it's my heart
allston amazon came, she chewed it to parts
i'd pray the lord to save me but what good would it do
for a catholic riffraff who's a lesbian too

she's seven foot tall she's wearin all black
gets a lotta lip and she spits it right back
i watch her stare hard at all the young males
got a look on her face like she's shittin nails

i thought it was a hangover but it's my heart
allston amazon came, she chewed it to parts
i'd pray the lord to save me but what good would it do
for a catholic riffraff who's a lesbian too

father, i don't need blessings or none of that crap
just one dying wish: bury my head in her lap

well she took my heart so now i'm spittin up blood
close my eyes and sink right into the mud
got no soul so now i'm with the devil, ooo ooo
turns out she's been damned by the amazon too

i thought it was a hangover but it's my heart
allston amazon came, she chewed it to parts
i'd pray the lord to save me but what good would it do
for a catholic riffraff who's a lesbian too

Track Name: Mystery Pills
i left the party bout an hour ago
and i don't remember where my money did go
mystery pills and a bottle full of wine
i don't remember if i'm having a good time

i saw some kids they were smoking grass
real square cats they can kiss my ass
tried to stand all i could do was lean
tried to speak all i could do was scream

i'm not one for parties but they're spinning northern soul
i'm not one for dancing pills have got me on a roll
i'm impressed with the hostess' 45 collection
i hope to catch her look in my direction

if i was a little more sober ya know i'd ask you to dance
but i just can't do it under the circumstance
you're boyfriend's big the biggest guy that i see
and i don't like the way he's lookin at me

i'm not one for parties but they're spinning northern soul
i'm not one for dancing pills have got me on a roll
i'm impressed with the hostess' 45 collection
i hope to catch her look in my direction

i saw some kids they were smoking grass
real square cats they can kiss my ass
tried to speak all i could do was lean
tried to stand all i could do was scream

i'm not one for parties but they're spinning northern soul
i'm not one for dancing pills have got me on a roll
i'm impressed with the hostess' 45 collection
i hope to catch her look in my direction
Track Name: I Hear Noises
i come in at night all drunk and alone
the lights are on but there's nobody home
hinges creak like arthritic bones
baseboards squeak and floorboards groan

don't know what they want
(i know what i want)
they're coming after me
(i'm coming after you)

i hear noises down the hall
i don't know if they're there at all
i hear voices down the hall
i feel so good i feel six feet tall

i kick off my boots, they don't hit the floor
see mystery lights float under my door
the furniture moves as i drift off to sleep
all the ghosts keep my company

don't know what they want
(i know what i want)
they're coming after me
(i'm coming after you)

i hear noises down the hall
i don't know if they're there at all
i hear voices down the hall
i feel so good i feel six feet tall

don't know what they want
(i know what i want)
they're coming after me
(i'm coming after you)

i hear noises down the hall
i don't know if they're there at all
(i'm stalking you from down the hall)
i hear voices down the hall
(drag my nails across your wall)
i feel so good i feel six feet tall
(chop you up til you're small small small!)

Track Name: Tsunami
picking up bones on a distant shore
(i think i've seen you somewhere before)
looking for scraps of the clothes you wore

the tide was high

walking in a strange terrible place
(i wonder if you'd know my face)
i felt the plates shift and the water displace

the tide was high

see the ocean draw back
waiting for that wave to crash
see the ocean draw back
and here it comes, here it comes

the ocean floor is laid out bare
(i feel too close to even bare)
it's coming soon but i don't care

the tension's high

see the ocean draw back
waiting for that wave to crash
see the ocean draw back
and here it comes, here it comes
tsunami

they found your watch and nothing more
what became of me, no one was sure

the waves were high

see the ocean draw back
waiting for that wave to crash
see the ocean draw back
and here it comes, here it comes

see the ocean draw back
waiting for that wave to crash
see the ocean draw back
and here it comes, here it comes
tsunami
