LYRICS FROM THE ALBUM

 

 

JUST MY LUCK

I was aching for someone to heal
All the sorrow and shame that I feel
Trying so hard to be kind 
That I let you break my heart the whole time

Might say 
I played right into your game

Just my luck
You choose me
Just my luck
And spin the wheel
Just my luck
Right through me
Just my luck
Raw deal
You're one sick fuuuu....

Something to the men that I pick
Being cruel is what makes 'em tick
But you screwed me up so smooth
You were gone before I suspected you

Might say 
I played right into your game

Just my luck
You choose me
Just my luck
And spin the wheel
Just my luck
Right through me
Just my luck
Raw deal
You're one sick fuuuuuu...

Fundamentally broken man
And yet I'm stuck
Yeah, you're just my luck
You're just my luck

Might say I played right into your game

Just my luck
You choose me
Just my luck
And spin the wheel
Just my luck
Right through me
Just my luck
Raw deal
You're one sick fuck

Yeah, you're just my luck
You're just my luck

SUPERSTAR

You
You are stardust
You are glitter
You are gold
You have learned not to trust
Don't go bitter
Don't grow cold

You are a superstar
Don't let them steal that away
You are a superstar
Shine every night
Every day

Torn from the heavens
Wings of promise
Feet of clay
Worn, bloody, senseless
No one heeds what you say

Now...transformation! 
Your cosmic stuff sparks a new race
Shine, shine
Bright my love!
Put particles in their place

You are a superstar
Don't let them steal that away
You are a superstar
Shine every night
Every day

You are a superstar
You are a superstar
Light of the night
Queen of Space

You are, you are, you are
A Superstar

DADDY ISSUES

Hey!
Remember me? 
I'm coming for ya

She's been treating herself rough
Begging, "Please just tell me, tell me I'm enough!"
Chasing men around, but all they do
Is cut her further down and poke the wound

Hey patient
Ain't no use
So blatant what's eating you

You got daddy issues
Yeah, you got daddy issues
You got daddy issues
Do you love me, Daddy? 
Do you?

Aficionado of apathy
Mistaking bravado for virility
Shed a tear? Nah, he'll fuck her up first
His papa showed him how to prove his worth

Hey now honey, ain't nothing new
Anybody can see the truth

You got daddy issues
Yeah, you got daddy issues
You got daddy issues
Do you love me, Daddy?
Do you?

Hey baby, I'll put it plain
If you don't sort it out, you'll just pass off the pain

Cuz you got daddy issues
Yeah, you got daddy issues
You got daddy issues
Do you love me, Daddy? 
Do you?

Do you love me Daddy?
Do you?

MS. MOREAU

I'm a geek girl
I'm a freak girl
You exclaim like it's a bad thing
Well I, I will slide up the long way
I will feed it cream from my tits
My knife raised to your face
Oh the pain you will sing
Kills your old mind 'til you get high on my wrong ways

I made a unicorn, vivisection porn
Creature, oh
I fed you chloroform, shed your human form
Now you know 
I'm Ms. Moreau

When I listen
I can hear them
Whispering over me like I ain't even there
As if I died, but I shoot life like a rocket
I make dream things
Doctor so strange
Leopard tongue, gator lung, an amphibian so fair
Came from my mind
Now it fills my little socket

I made a dragon cry, opaque from aching eyes
Creature, oh
I shot you up with gold, sucked your lipids cold
I made a puma pup and then he ate me up
Creature, NO!
So I go
Now you know
Now you know
Now you know
I'm Ms. Moreau

CREATURE

Many a moon
I've been on my own
Paying my dues
Hollywood to Barcelona
Quixotic and starry-eyed
Impetuous and stoned
I can't help but fantasize on sharing my throne

With you, beast to my ingenue 
I'm crying for the creature I once knew
Creature

Once in a dynasty or four, a chick like me darkens your door
Bruised from her Elysian tumble
Into the brute she's bound to stumble
I bear your marks under my flesh
I'm horrified but I'm impressed

Late at night, I turn my gaze above
At the stars who laugh at my love for you
Monster to my shrew
Am I still the creature you once knew?
Creature

Velvet shot from a gun
Razor blades that taste like butter
Hallow planet and the sun
Circling each other

What am I to do? 
I thought that I knew
Am I the real creature, or are you?
Creature

ROCK N’ ROLL NO MORE

Get a job at the studio and wallow in the bar
Ain't no fuckin' freeload freak like you gon' be a star
Ace entrance exams and jam your head with rules
You could be on NPR if you had finished school

I'd rather be a wicked child 
Like Bowery, Byron, Oscar Wilde
A glitter queen of gutter lore
But nobody loves rock n' roll
Nobody loves rock n' roll
Nobody loves rock n' roll no more

Hang me with a Les Paul string an drown my flesh in ink
Ready your arrow as I float across the kitchen sink
Light me up and I'll slip through the drain a small Viking
Setting fire to all of my pipe dreams

I'd rather let my voice ring out 
Get high on that midnight crowd
How the stadium kids would roar
But nobody loves rock n' roll
Nobody loves rock n' roll
Nobody loves rock n' roll no more

Except me, I love a mean twelve string harmony
Not some auto-tune lobotomy
Culture can be saved if we let the golden age of art be creed
So c'mon, turn up your car stereo and sing along
Hear every lick, every lyric of this song
Let me play with your mechanics
Don't you panic, baby
Let me turn you on

Can you feel it? 
I can feel it
Can you feel it? 
I can feel it
Can you feel it? 
I can feel it
Can you feel it?

ATLANTIS

Our city is sinking
The flood is what binds us
We're building a castle from sodden detritus
That washes up on Pacific Coast Highway
Now wrapped in long tendrils
Of stargrass I tremble
Memories of mountains and fire so ephemeral 
And, drowning, I cling to the last buoyant rock in LA

When suddenly 
I hear the call of the sea
A song from beyond the pillars of Heracles
Atlantis

All that I want sank with Chateau Marmont 
In the flood of '03
No longer will I wait for my illustrious fate 
When Atlas calls to me

Oh, the hubris of a dream
The weight of ecstasy
Proved too much for fickle land to bear
Now ancient emerald shores 
Of ancient myth and lore
Are beckoning and I'm no longer scared
So current take me down
I'm not afraid to drown
In fact I'd be enchanted
For I will be made whole in Atlantis

Saw Regina Spektor hit by Capitol Records
The tower tumbling down as waves overswept her
And gazed at my demos awash in the unopened mail
Heard the Santa Anas wail like Santana
Found drift wood by Fred 62
As I built a small raft
A trust fund in a mustache laughed, "Well, what a strange thing to do!"

But I ride on and make for the isle of Poseidon
Though priests and prophets claim its glory is long gone
Atlantis

Oh, the stark plasticity of human entity
Tore the San Andreas like old silk
Now I'm sinking low into the undertow
That's carrying me towards my kind, my ilk
Goodbye to the bars and sunken reservoirs
Midwesterners transplanted
For I am going home to Atlantis
