Track Name: Horror Movie
You talk to yourself without trying
I gather my things while you're lying
A delicate game of half truths
And you stand and you stare and you drool and you lose

I walk to the car right behind you
You open my door without being asked to
A delicate game of polite dance
And you sit and you drive and you're good at romance

You don't know
You don't notice it

I'm starting a fight without trying
I gather my thoughts but you keep lying
A delicate game of insults
And you think and you preach and you open the trunk

I run from the car at the stop sign
You're faster and catch me from behind
A delicate game of anger
And you hit and you tie and you're full of danger

You don't know
You don't notice it

Can't break the bonds though I'm trying
I tell you it hurts, you say I'm lying
A delicate game of fucked up minds
And you laugh and you kiss and you grab and you cry

I'm locked in a car with a psycho
The pain in my heart's nothing compared to
The delicate pain of knife from boot
And I stab and I stab and I stab and I kill you

You don't know
You don't...didn't.. .notice it
Track Name: Eponymous #1
underneath a bridge am i
billy goats are passing by
little birdies in the sky
how i wish that i could fly
not an ogre or a vole
sorry i am just a troll

now i'm underneath the stairs
feet are coming down in pairs
now that they have said their prayers
hope i catch them unawares
santa left a lump of coal
sorry i am just a troll

now i'm tromping through the shire
didn't mean to start that fire
i should eat before i tire
situation getting dire
can't fit in a hobbit hole
sorry i am just a troll

children walking through the wood
little children taste so good
let them go i know i should
but i really want some food
i should have some self-control
sorry i am just a troll
Track Name: Ruins (Year of the Cat revisited)
In an evening from a Bollywood movie
In a haze of road dust and smog
You walk through the shadows of skyscrapers
Bring tourists back from the ancient ruins

You go home to the old part of the city
Eat your dinner of curry and rice
The noise and the smell of the 21st century
And the ruins of a world left behind

And it's always and never the Year of the Cat

You left her with the monsoon rain
Just like you knew you would all along
Your parents sent you money and a plane ticket
It was time to go back home where you belong

You changed your mind while waiting at the airport
You thumbed a ride back to town
The flat was empty, all of her things were gone
Your reason to stay was nowhere to be found

And it's always and never the Year of the Cat

Now everyone you know has a cell phone
Some of them even have cars
They tell you that it's good for business
They can always find out where you are

For the first few years you hoped you would find her
Pretending she'd come back passed the time
Now staying here is easier than going back
And tourists like an English speaking guide

Pretty college girls wearing patchouli
The memories and the moss-eaten stairs
Your wasted life in this ancient city
Where you keep your foolish heart and aging bones

And it's always and never the Year of the Cat
Track Name: Frustration
Whoopie-ki-yi-yay, my brains are on fire
My brains are on fire and I don't know why
I sit here and shake my fists
My neurons are arsonists
My brains are on fire and I don't know why
Track Name: Mad Tom of Bedlam
For to see Mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I'd travel
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
To save her shoes from gravel

(chorus)
It's well that we sing bonny boys
Bonny mad boys
Bedlam boys are bonny for they
All go bare and they live in the air
And they want no drink nor money

I went down to Satan's kitchen
For to break my fast one morning
And there I got souls popping hot
All on the spits a-turnin'
(chorus)

The spirits howled as lightning
Did on that journey guide me
The sun did shake and the pale moon quake
Whenever they did spy me
(chorus)

My staff has murdered giants
And my pack a long knife carries
For to slice mince pies from children's thighs
From which to feed the faeries
(chorus)

Tonight I'll go a murderin'
The man in the moon to a powder
His dog I'll shake and his staff I'll break
And I'll howl a wee bit louder
(chorus)

For to see Mad Tom of Bedlam
Ten thousand miles I'd travel
Mad Maudlin goes on dirty toes
For to save her shoes from gravel
(chorus)
Track Name: Carousel State of Mind
Well I came to a conclusion
That every one is insane
And I have twelve thousand voices
Telling me the same
With all these voices talking in my head
I have no room to complain

Well I came to a conclusion
That every one is insane
And I have twelve thousand voices
Telling me the same
With all these voices talking in my head
I have no room to complain

The ceiling fans are spinning
And the lights are all on
It's a carousel state of mind
The lights are very bright now
And they're spinning to the time
They've left me anything but blind

I can see the world from here
It seems so very small
The jarring of my little perch
Sends worries of a fall
But I'm still standing tall
I'm still standing tall

The lightbulbs of my carousel
They are my guiding lights
Like beacons from lighthouses
On those dark and stormy nights
The voices are my spirit guides
They tell me it's okay
The question of my sanity
It quickly fades away
So maybe if we all pay heed
To guides and guiding lights
We'll all be safe tonight
We'll all be safe tonight
We'll all be safe tonight
Track Name: Three Suitors No Refunds
I'm going to set the record straight here
Then you'll finally know
That spark's been gone for quite awhile now dear
That's why I let you go

I took some of your innocence from you
A mutual attack
And though you took something away from me too
I can take mine back

This heart is mine
It's undeniably mine
I'll dish it out in pieces to whomever I like
And if you find
You've got a piece of what's mine
Just know I'll take it back one day
And I'll be just fine

You are not going to drive me insane
Though you've gotten close
I know you're only trying to entertain
I swear I'll break your nose

You've truly shown me new ways of the heart
A trust you could call love
It should be known that someday, baby, we'll part
I want my own true love

This heart is mine
It's undeniably mine
I'll dish it out in pieces to whomever I like
And if you find
You've got a piece of what's mine
Just know I'll take it back one day
And I'll be just fine

You're my favorite tall dark and handsome thing
My longest running bet
It's your fault I changed the standards of screening
No one has matched up yet

There are so many pieces that have charred along the way
If I don't pay attention then it's my fault so I pay
The trying and the lying starts the crying.. . stupid girl
I don't have hope so prove me wrong, she screamed out to the world

It hits the fan, tears things up, there's never any time
It shouldn't be so hard to find your own partner in crime

This heart is fine
It's been beat up but it's fine
If you want a piece of it you might as well get in line
So if you find
You've got a piece of inside
Just know I gave it freely knowing
You'd like to be mine
Track Name: Killing Time
Sittin' here on a lazy Saturday
It's so nice out I should go out and play
First sun in weeks and it feels great on my face
The snow is gone and the world's a whole new place

Walk down the street
Got my red flip flops on
Love night so much that I
Almost forgot the dawn

I'm killin' time waiting for the
Night to fall
Killin' time waiting for my
Baby to call

I go to work in the morning and afternoon
Everyday it seems the night can't come too soon
I take the bus home and plot something to do
There's gotta be a way that it can involve you

Put on my party dress
The sun is almost gone
We love the night so let's
Hang on until the dawn

I'm killin' time waiting for the
Night to fall
Killin' time waiting for my
Darlin' to call

I read a book about the end of the world
Bombs and time travel, slavery and a girl
She fell in love with a man twice her age
Had healthy twins and their freehold is all the rage

We made it through the night, I'm still holding on
Without I don't think I'd ever have seen the dawn

Killin' time waiting for my baby to call
Killin' time waiting for my darling to call
Don't even know if I'll get to see him at all
Killin' time waiting for the night to fall
