Track Name: Be My Animal
I’ll never be a high school queen
The boys laugh, the girls are mean
Every day, the same routine
A bell rings, in between
But now...

I belong to an animal, an animal saved my soul
We met in detention and we sang of Trojans and cloves
He came from Baseline, middle school of love
We share infections, the body and blood

Be my animal, baby

I am hungry like an animal, an animal built for love
I feel you near me, your body and blood

Be my animal, baby

Bridge

I am truant like an animal, an ingénue lost in love
Messy teenager, my body and blood

Be my animal, baby
Track Name: Tech Boys
With your mustache
And your paycheck
And your blue badge
And your limp dick
With mouth full
of the party line
And your weekends
working overtime

Overtime

Tech Boys

Titilation
We got an app for that
Masturbation
We got an app for that
Desperation
We got an app for that
Gentrification
We got an app for that

Isolation
We got an app for that
Intoxication
We got an app for that
Humiliation
We got an app for that
Gentrification
We got an app for that

Tech Boys

You gotta feel that rhythm
That algorithm

TECH BOYS
Track Name: So Hot
I am I am I am I am so hot
I am I am I am I am so hot

Hey baby girl are you ready
I get so inspired just looking at you
You got me hypnotized
My heart goes boom boom when I look in your eyes

Where did you get that mojo from
You’re like a brand new stick of bubblegum
So pristine if you know what I mean
Ready or not I gotta get what you got
She said…

I am I am I am I am so hot
I am I am I am I am so hot

Hey hey mama don’t feel alright
She got all banged up in a cat fight
Her man got popped with a kitty on top
Fuss and fury in the parking lot

Doctor Oh! He did it again
I need something for the pain, what do you recommend
Lay down child I know what you got
It’s called heartbreak fever and it burns a lot
She goes…

I am I am I am I am so hot
I am I am I am I am so hot

I stand at the ocean
Salt in my eyes
The seagulls are crying
They don’t know what’s coming
Hear the sound, engines drown
They day of light, has turned to night
Alive!

Friday night and I’m TCB
It’s the season of pleasing and they’re looking at me
We’re all in the mood for a new romance
I hit the ATM for a cash advance

Downtown boys always give me the eye,
“Me gusta bay-bee, you look so fly,
what are the odds you stay with me tonight?”
I said nuh-uh. What does it look like dummy?

I am I am I am I am so hot
I am I am I am I am so hot
Track Name: Speak in Tongues
I heard their voices in the forest
tell me what I’ve always been
I hear their voices in a chorus
calling me to come with them

I got addicted to the noises
music when the night does fall
I got addicted to the voices
whisper when the sunlight falls

I wanna speak in tongues

I feel temptation so euphoric
crawling underneath my skin
Hallucinations so euphoric
show me what has always been

I feel religion as it courses
boil all the living blood
I feel the fiction get distorted
underneath the rising flood

I wanna speak in tongues

I saw a shadow in performance
higher than the midnight sky
I feel it watching in the forest
always underneath it’s eye
I feel the rain of benediction
falling from a starless night
The flesh in every contradiction
worshiping the appetite

I wanna speak in tongues
Track Name: COOL
He pops the jukebox
Like Fonzarelli
On TV

Queen of the radio
Ice cold and in control
She moves in slo-mo

We make the sunshine
Do you believe it
Life is a masquerade
You look divine

Everything I do
Everything I say
Is gonna be cool

You tell the story
I’ll take the glory
Serve with tea, for you and me

Easy American,
They love you in Japan
This is a sham

We make the sunshine
Do you believe it
Life is a masquerade
You look divine

Everything I do
Everything I say
Is gonna be cool (from now on)

Cool, Rock
Cool, Rock

Everything I do
Everything I say
Is gonna be cool (from now on)
Track Name: St. Mary
I slipped a secret note
Inside my best friend’s coat
A list of all my sins

Promise to never tell
Stash it at the motel
Under the foam and mattress springs

Dazzling rain
Psychic drain
Saint Mary Jane

My anecdote
Take winter by the throat
Knock on my best friend’s door

We like a tiny push
OG or banana kush
The time is 20 past 4

Dazzling rain
Psychic drain
Saint Mary Jane

Stimulate, stay out late
In the haze

Shift and shake, gyrate
In the haze

Levitate, saturate
Saint Mary Jane
Track Name: Love
I see love

It’s the view from the outside
That’s keeping you tongue tied
I want the love like the love I see

I want the big paycheck
The song on the tape deck
I want the love like the love I see

I wanna be on the guest list
I’m here for the french kiss
I want the love like the love I see

The heat in the hot sand
The sun and the suntan
I want the love like the love I see

I see love

It’s the view from the outside
That’s keeping you tongue tied
I want the love like the love I see

I need a sensation
So turn up the station
I want the love like the love I see

I see LOVE
Track Name: Dance with Me
Red Silhouette
Willing coquette
Lit cigarette
Warm Leatherette

Soft Mademoiselle
Wild carousel
Heartbreak hotel
I want you to…

Dance with me
Infinity
653
Shake me

I turn to the left
Spin to my right
Revolve around you
Lovely satellite

We dance to forget
It’s such a cliché
Love saves the day
I want you to…

Dance with me
Infinity
653
Shake me
Track Name: Alone
I don’t need to know your name
to know your game
I don’t wanna hear the rain
it’s all the same

I don’t
don’t really mind
being ALONE

Why go out when
I feel more
at home?

being alone
being alone

I don’t have a thing to prove
and less to do
I could make it up to you
if I wanted to

I don’t
don’t really mind
being ALONE
Disconnect me from
my telephone

being alone
being alone

If I wanna waste my time
It’s not a crime
I don’t need an alibi
so please don’t try

I don’t
don’t really mind
being ALONE
Why go out when
I feel more
at home?

being ALONE
