Track Name: I Came Here To Be Defeated
i came here to be defeated by the death of 1000 cuts
i came here to surrender i came here to give up
i came here to be defeated i came here to go nuts
yeah

sometimes i get the feeling our knees were made for kneeling
sometimes i get the feeling that our knees were made for kneeling
and when they hit the floor i remember love is war
yeah

when things start looking up then i run outta luck
when things start looking up that's when i run clean outta luck
and if i ever draw a winning hand then i'll know that it's the end
yeah

i came here to be defeated by the death of 1000 cuts
i came here to surrender i came here to give up
i came here to be defeated i came here to go nuts
yeah
Track Name: Lost My Spot Blues
listen here lover gonna tell you that you're wrong
if you say that you'll be happy when i'm gone
well there might be pretty boys to keep your mattress warm
but they'll set you adrift and you'll sink like a stone

so listen here lover 'cause it won't be like you thought
when i walk out the devil takes my spot
he gonna rake your pretty white skin across hot coals
gonna keep you locked up in a coffin of gold

listen here lover 'cause you made a mistake
when i walk out, won't be my heart that breaks
gonna cut off your hair and turn it into a wig
find you a gravesite and force you to dig
no the devil ain't ever gonna let you be
and you'll wish you never told me to leave

so listen here lover i could pray for your sins
but i'm too busy doing wicked things
and maybe i'll succumb to my own curse
but when i meet the devil he'll have met you first
Track Name: Parthenogenesis Blues 1
there was a star that was lighting up its last
that was the past
like moonlight tides and like dust becoming flies i arise
i take my first steps and the ground is traumatized
i arrive

was i a bull or a swan or a rain of gold
was i a raging thunderbolt
howls of confusion echo down your haunted halls
i am the bloodstains on those walls
i'll be a no one if you'd rather not explain
walk through the night and clank my chain

faceless in crowds you're all masters of disguise
trumps in a tarot pack of lies
gave song and dance and not a note of it rang true
guess maybe i conceived of you
you left me orders and my head remains unbowed
i've walked away you're orphans now
Track Name: It's TAB
it's tab bitch
you can drink it with a sandwich
it goes down like a prison snitch
ya know it's tab bitch

yeah it's tab bitch
it'll make you handsome and rich
when you start to tremble, when you start to shake and twitch
ya know it's tab bitch

mmm comes in a pink can
mmm once you hold it in your hand
it's like hoppin in a stranger's van
takin candy from a crazy man
drop the lever and hang saddam and drink tab

it's tab bitch
now it's too late to switch
it's gonna leave you for dead in a roadside ditch
ya know it's tab bitch

mmm comes in a pink can
mmm and that's all part of the plan
'cause you're being watched by a man
from his office in viet nam
and he's hacking into your webcam while he drinks tab
it's tab!
Track Name: Bubbleworld
little bubbles everywhere
Track Name: Devil Been Here
we lost our way a while ago
and he found his way home

maybe you can, maybe you can't believe
hoofprints in the snow and it ain't christmas eve
ashes in the sky drift down like falling leaves
and every time i feel like the culprit's the same
he who cannot be called by name

we lost our way a while ago
and he found his way home

shoulda warned you, should've given you a sign
devil's been here and it's no one's fault but mine
so come and break down the brimstone and i will let flow the wine
and come burn and brand me for all the bad things that i am
i'll take the heat, i won't be beat, i won't let you be damned

we lost our way a while ago
and he found his way home

pater filius et spiritus sancti i seek forgiveness and i am unworthy
pater filius et spiritus sancti i called you forth and i abjure thee
pater filius et spiritus sancti i seek forgiveness and i am unworthy
pater filius et spiritus sancti i called you forth and i abjure thee
Track Name: I'm Gonna Be The Next Dead Rockstar On My Block
i'm gonna be the next dead rockstar on my block
i'll wear a studded leather jacket and i just won't give a fuck
i'm gonna start practicing the black arts
i'm gonna cover my arms in track marks

exploit me now girl
you know that you know how girl

i'm gonna run away from my own bodyguards
'cause celebrity is in the cards
i'm gonna be the next dead rockstar on my block

next i'll jet to paris for some fun
when the single i despise hits #1
i'm gonna drink unpronounceable wines
and then i'll stay up all night doing lines

exploit me now girl
you know that you know how girl

and then i'll trash my label's private plane
and france won't let me back in again
i'm gonna be the next dead rockstar on my block

and i'll leave you for the next thing that comes along
i'm gonna get three numbers by the end of this song
then i'll watch the new girls hanging off my arm
kick you back to that alley where you came from

exploit me now girl
you know that you know how girl

honey what did you believe?
fans are so easy to deceive
i'm gonna be the next dead rockstar on my block
