Track Name: Sick and Tired
SICK AND TIRED

I’m sick and tired of waiting for U to knock on my door
I’ve left my light lit for so long – What am I waiting for?

U feed me a little, just a little at a time
Getting in my head and you’re messing with the mind
U tease me a little, just a little at a time
U throw me a nickel but you’re turning on a dime

I’m beat and I’m bruised and my back’s to the floor
So U better be worth my waiting for

Chorus:
Ah! I’m sick and tired of waiting
U need to be right here by my side
Ah! So sick and tired of waiting
You’re running this show my hands are tied
Ah! I’m sick and tired I told U – When will U decide?

I shoot for the middle, cause I’m fixed on the prize - Yeah
Finger on the trigger, it’s a dead bull’s eye
Yeah, yeah, uh
Your love is a gamble and the stakes run high - Yeah
I’m going all in when the cards don’t lie
Yeah, yeah, uh

I’m torn and I’m tired and it’s down to the wire
Am I gonna get burned if I play with fire?

Chorus

Sick and tired - What am I waiting for?

Chorus

Sick and tired of waiting for U to knock on my door
I’ve left my light lit for so long – What am I waiting for?
Track Name: Superstar (By Myself)
SUPERSTAR (BY MYSELF)

U can tell me all your stories and I can listen till the dawn
U can brag about your trophies while I smile to hide my yawns
U can tell me it's a sure thing, I'll do my best to play along
U can promise me the world and more but I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

CHORUS:
U had me baby
U had me feeling like a superstar
Cause that's what U are now
U had me baby
So where's the glory and the big cigar
Cause I've come too far by myself

U can tempt me with tomorrow, U can tease me to the core
U can tell me I'm the one and only, I've heard it all before
U can call it what U want to, sugar-coat it on & on
But doesn't matter how U slice it now cause I'm gone, I'm gone, I'm gone

CHORUS:
U had me baby
U had me feeling like a superstar
Cause that's what U are now
U had me baby
So where's the glory and the big cigar
Cause I've come too far by myself, myself, myself…
I’ll take it to the top by myself, myself, myself…
I’ll take it to the top by myself!
BRIDGE:
U had me baby – Yeah
U had me baby

CHORUS
Track Name: Bitter Pill
BITTER PILL

Hey Jack, you really should be watching your back
You're bringing out my bad side
That's right - push a little more, I might crack
Then you're done hun!

They say one innocent little mishap
Can really make it look right
Payback is a better dish served cold
I've been told

Oh! You're in trouble - Oh! Watch out!

CHORUS:
You're a bitter pill to swallow
And I'll go as far as I can go
Or I'll get over it tomorrow
When I'm sane and sound and sober

Here goes, I'm thinking I could tamper with your brakes
And send you on a long drive
Wrapped up in a carpet at the bottom of the lake
Sounds nice…

One blink I'll be slipping you a Mickey in your drink
You better keep your eyes peeled
Payback is a better dish served cold
So I've been told

Oh! Get your game on – Oh! Right now

CHORUS:
You're a bitter pill to swallow
And I'll go as far as I can go
Or I'll get over it tomorrow
Who knows? I’d like to think so
You're a bitter pill to swallow
So cold, the worst that I have known
I'll get over it tomorrow
When I'm sane and sound and sober
When hell freezes over

BRIDGE:
I wonder, should I tie you up and throw you off a cliff?
Or hire me a goon to pay a call?
A poisoned box of chocolates always makes a lovely gift
Or I can poke another pin into my voodoo doll…

CHORUS

Oh! You're in trouble - Oh! Watch out!
Track Name: Miserable Ride
MISERABLE RIDE

U want me to be what U believe in
Want me to see that you're right - Yeah
U wanna bring me on your miserable ride
I won't be crossing that line – No!

U want me to breathe what you’ve been breathing
But don't seem to me you're alive - Yeah
U wanna bring me on your miserable ride
I won't be taking that drive – No!

Chorus:
What am I supposed to say?
What am I supposed to do?
Take a backseat to myself
And leave it all up to U?
Did U think you'd bring me down
To where you like to play?
Think again cause I won't pretend
That it's halfway okay

You want me to run, run where you lead me
I'd just be chasing a liar
Still trying to drag me
On that miserable ride of yours?
I won't be jumping into that fire!

Chorus

Don't care how U lie
Don't wanna be on your miserable ride
Your mistake's not mine
Don't wanna hear what U think U thought U knew
Don't care how U lie
Ain't gonna go on your miserable ride
Your mistake's not mine
You're just afraid cause U know what I can do

Chorus
Track Name: I Get the Shakes
I GET THE SHAKES

I can’t eat, can’t sleep – No!
You’ve been killing me softly with your ups and downs
U twist me and turn me around – Yeah

I’m in debt, in deep – Oh!
It’s a miracle I still walk this tasteless town
I hang on, hang on - But my feet keep leaving the ground

Chorus:
Cause U take me high, U bring me low
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over
We touch the sky, fall below
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over around U

Lost sight, can’t breathe – No!
Think you’re breaking me slowly while U string me along?
Singing the same old song – Yeah

Well my heart still beats – So!
You better fasten your seatbelt cause I come back strong
I hang on, hang on – This time I know I belong

Chorus:
U take me high, U bring me low
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over
U hold me close, U let me go
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over around U (2x)

U spin me around – I fall down but I get up again
U spin me around - Inside, in circles
U spin me around – I’m down now, but I’ll be back again
U spin me around - And up and down and around we go!

Chorus:
Cause U take me high, U bring me low
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over
We touch the sky, fall below
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over around U

U take me high, U bring me low
Spin me around – I get the shakes all over
U drive me wild, it’s the life I know
And I like your style – I get the shakes all over around U (5x)
Track Name: Join the Infestation
JOIN THE INFESTATION

This beat's getting up inside me
And all this heat's frying up my brain
Taking over all of my senses
Making me high like an aeroplane

So hot like a shot of brandy
Going down sweet as a candy cane
Tearing down my wall of defense
It's a cut-throat shock running through my veins

Doo doo…

You know you can feel it rising
Coming up quick like a burning flame
It's a hot flash holding you fast
It's a non-stop freight train 1-2-3-4

Chorus:
Let me take you on a new sensation
Won't you come on out to play?
Lose yourself and join the infestation
Cause we're going all the way

Doo doo…

My feet are a flight of fancy
Cutting this rug like a hurricane
Beating up my heart rate - Pumping
Turning me out - Taking me away

You know you can feel it rising
The pressure's so high that you can't contain
It's a countdown waiting to sound off
Scream it out loud now 4-3-2-1

Chorus

Doo doo… (X2)

1-2-3-4

Chorus:
Let me take you on a new sensation
Won't you come on out to play?
Lose yourself and join the infestation
Cause we're going all the way

Oh! Let me thrill you with a new sensation
Won't you come on out to play?
Lose your mind and join the infestation
Cause we're going all the way
Oh! Won't you come on out to play?
I said, we'll be coming around today
That's right, we're going all the way!
Track Name: Call Me Crazy
CALL ME CRAZY

Chorus:
Call me simple, call me weird, even special, call me crazy
Call me different, but at least I dare to be me
So you see… Call me crazy

Some girls might ask U for diamonds
Never liked those shiny things
Just keep it subtle and simple
If U want to pull on my heartstrings
Who needs tight dresses and high heels
When you’ve got your jeans and Fryes?
Don't seem to fit with your ideals? That's alright!

Chorus

Some girls need lots of distractions,
And anything that might excite
I find I get satisfaction
Drinking wine by candlelight
And don't send me chocolates or roses, (don’t U know?)
Pick me up in fancy cars, (I won’t go)
Drop names like everyone knows them
Couldn't care less who they are

Chorus

Naturally…
I know what I like
And that’s why I find what I’m looking for
Cause baby inside, it feels right
So leave me alone!

Call me crazy, but I’m really easy, a simple lady, oh!

Chorus:
Call me simple, call me weird, even special, call me crazy
Call me different, but at least I dare to be me
Call me simple! Call me special!
Call me weird or crazy maybe, yeah!
Call me different, but at least I dare to be free
So baby… Call me crazy!
Track Name: Onto Something
ONTO SOMETHING

Here U go again blabbing about
What to do – I have my doubts
Show a little faith and shut your mouth
Maybe I’m onto something

Here U go again working it out
Save yourself – I have my doubts
Show a little faith and shut your mouth
Maybe I’m onto something

Cause I just want to feel what I feel for myself

Here U go again burning me down
Raise a glass and flaunt your crown
Show a little faith and shut your mouth
Maybe I’m onto something

Cause I just want to feel what I feel for myself
Cause I just want to see what I see for myself

Seems to me like maybe I’m onto something good
Seems to me like maybe I’m onto something good
Maybe I’m onto something
Maybe I’m onto something
Seems to me like maybe I’m onto something good

Here U go again, here U go again
Maybe I’m onto something
Here U go again, here U go again
Baby I’m onto something

Cause I just want to be what I’ll be by myself
Track Name: Gutless and Blue
GUTLESS AND BLUE

Too bad for U
U never really did what U wanted to
U do it to yourself and now you're stuck in your life
So sad but true
You never really fought for your point of view
You're living in your shell - two kids, a dog, and your wife

Come on, come on, come on
Not my fault you're no go-getter
Come on, come on, it’s now or never for U

No surprise, you’re gutless and blue - Gutless and blue!
All this time and didn’t have a clue - Gutless and blue!
Gone for good, you’re gutless and blue - Gutless and blue!
No time left, so what will U do?

So now you're screwed
You hate that I love what I'm going through
But keep it to yourself and stay away from my life
Nothing I can do for "Mr. I haven't got a clue"
As far as I can tell
You're just a thorn in my side, wasting my time

Come on, come on, come on
Think you're smart and so damn clever
But U do yourself in, whatever U do

Chorus

Come on, come on, come on
You’re gutless and blue
Come on, come on, come on

Chorus

Get off my back, clean up your act
Fix up your life, it’s all outta whack
Get off your ass, take out the trash
Fix up your life, you’re on the wrong track
