Track Name: Nothing Can Stop Me
if i show you that i'm alive
if i show you i've got feelings inside
if i show you that i'm not perfect
then will you know that you can hurt me


but if you think
that i'm not strong
you best watch out
nothing can stop me


i read your words and cry
you betray my trust a million times
you poison my life with lies
you victimize, victimize, victimize you victimize


but if you think
that i'm not strong
you best watch out
nothing can stop me


i got a heart that's true
i got somethings i must do
i know that everything's fucked up
but i ain't ever gonna shut up


but if you think
that i'm not strong
you best watch out
nothing can stop me
not you, not you! (nothing, you can't stop)


but if you think
that i'm not strong
you'd best watch out
Track Name: Decide
Do you wanna get married baby
Is that the way he said it
Is that the way you asked him
I know you have to live your life and i live mine
But when i think about it, it still makes me want to cry

I will decide my life
I will decide
No man is gonna rule my life
I will decide

Make a million promises that you won't keep
Holding on boygirl i'm dying in my sleep
Wait for something different
Holding on to nothing else but him

Waiting on forever
Waiting on tomorrow
Waiting on a faery tale
You can get rid of all those traps they put around you
But can you get rid of that seed they planted in your head

So is he a real prince charming is he really worth it
All those things i saw you give up
I wait for a happy ending
But i will never say goodbye
Track Name: Stay Away
I saw the way you looked that day
I saw the way you looked at me
I know the things you want from me
I know the things you take from me
My love my life my words my heart
My innocence was torn apart
I'll never trust a word you say
You're just a bad memory
Stay away
I feel the rain as it comes down
I feel like i am being drowned
You always sit and watch me die
A fuckin' million times
I want to know
Does anything touch you any more
Or are you rotten inside
I wish that you would just die
Do you think that this is for you
Do you think that i'd do anything for you
Do you think that i adore you
Do you think that this is for you
I still breathe i'm still alive
There's things that you can't take inside
My love my life my words my heart
Are things that you can't take apart
I could do this a million times
I'm one of the bravest girls alive
I feel inside
I feel that you have already died
Track Name: Calculated
My hate for you is a passion
That will run for a million years
My fury is a force that is equal to
A billion of your tears
It's calculated
What I'll get back
I'm taking everything
I'll get it back, well
I've got a knife that's sharpened
Exactly for one white boy
My target is your heart
And the knife will go deep
The knife will go inside
It's calculated
What I'll get back
I'm taking everything
I'll get it back
I'll get it back
I'll get it back
Track Name: Waitress Hell
miss, i need another glass,
this one is smudged and my
lips are too precious for this
we want the window table clear and set it for us
it's not too busy for us
bring a million different things to my table on a silver
platter you've got nothing better to do
if you smile really big and kiss my whitey ass
maybe you'll get a dollar today

you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell
you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell

yeah i just do this job for a hobby so
don't worry about a tip
4.25/hr suits me fine yeah i just love to serve
sure i'll take your plate your glass your bowl and then
i'll wipe your chin
and in the end i'm covered in your shit-
you look at me like i'm the dirty one

you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell
you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell

what you do comes back to you
what you do comes back to

you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell
you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell

i'll see you burn,
i'll see you burn in my hell
i'll see you burn,
i'll see you burn in my hell

you're going to waitress hell
you're gonna burn in my hell
Track Name: Axemen
here we go axemen here we go
at the pep rally i stole the show
wearing our purple and our whites
hey look around there's so much white
do you wanna live this teenage dream
the punk white privilege scene
oh quarterback i'll steal your axe
and cut it out of here

i'm out of my head
i'm out of my mind
i'm out of my life tonight
i'm going out there and i'm going fast and going hard
i'm going crazy do you wanna watch
do you wanna come
i'm out of my head
i'm out of my mind
i'm out of my life tonight

i asked my teacher
i said teacher tell me what to do
or do you believe those white lies
you're supposed to teach in school
she said don't believe everything you read
that's written down
she said don't believe
and i will burn the school down

i'm out of my head
i'm out of my mind
i'm out of my life tonight
i'm going out there and i'm going fast and going hard
i'm going crazy do you wanna watch
do you wanna come
i'm out of my head
i'm out of my mind
i'm out of my life tonight

cut off the part of me
the privilege inside of me
cutt of the part the privilege
but that's too easy this is work i have to do
high school it's in me high school
Track Name: Terrorist
you follow me on the fuckin street
you make me feel like a piece of meat
you think i don't know what war means
now i'm the terrorist see how it feels

i'm going to kill you
i'll cut you up, gouge out your eyes
i'm going to kill you
i'm not your prey i'll make you die

on my mouth there is a gag
everything i say is wrong
you laugh at me and knock me down
well now your turn is coming around

i'm going to kill you
i'll cut you up, gouge out your eyes
i'm going to kill you
i'm not your prey i'll make you die

i'm not kidding
i've had it just about to here
i'm not kidding
i threaten everything you hold dear
Track Name: Complicated
I don't know how to be good to you
You're too close and you know it too
Nobody has a good enough excuse
I'm just fucked up and so are you

I love you so much you could hurt me
So I do it first so you won't see me
Laugh it off and I don't feel it
Hard as rocks and nails underneath
Hardly anyone is sincere

All I know is anger that is real
I barely know how true goodness feels
I don't even know how to feel
I know I built walls all around
I'm begging you to knock them down
But yours are just as big and mean as mine
Tight defenses and we draw the line

If you want to go, just go
I'll watch you walk away
I don't care if you go
I'll watch you walk away
I'll die if you go
I'll watch you walk away

Stop everything
Stop all these fucked up games
Promise me we'll be good to each other
Promise me, I need it signed, sealed, delivered

Stop everything
Or my heart will break
My pride isn't worth it
Help me this is hurting
If you want to go just go
I'll watch you walk away

Super girl
She isn't real
I can't fly all alone
I can't even get off the ground
I don't know what else to say
I don't want to push you away
I need your help today
I can't get off the ground today
Track Name: White Girl
We should have talked about this a long time ago,
But I didn’t have to think about it,
And that's what this song is about.

White girl.
I want to change the world,
But I won’t change anything,
Unless I change my racist self.

It's a privilege, it's a background.
It's everything that I own,
It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white song,
It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white world.

White girl.
I want to change the world,
But I won't change anything
Unless I change my racist self.
Track Name: Paralyzed
I've seen the way you looked at the sky
you looked right up at it with unclouded eyes
that ain't the way I see anything
I don't know if I can stand another day of rain
you left the nest so long ago
you walked right out one day
it was easy for you
ruffle your feathers
everything you have in my face
well, I had to leave my wings at home today

cause I've seen you in the sky
how did you get so high?
I don't know how to fly
cause you leave me paralyzed
I wonder why only some of us get to touch the sky

you were born with blue, baby boy blue in your eyes
you were born to touch the sky, the sky
my sky, my sky

cause I've seen you in the sky
how did you get so high?
cause I don't know how to fly
and you leave me paralyzed
I know why only some of us get to touch the sky

I know what privilege is
I know what mine is, and why
but if I could, I'd steal yours
and I would fly so fucking high

cause I've seen you in the sky
how did you get so high?
cause I don't know how to fly
and you leave me paralyzed
I wonder why only some of us get to touch the sky

all that I can do is watch you fly
all that I can do is watch you fly
all that I can do is say goodbye
