Track Name: Knock Yourself Out
There is nothing out there
No magic cure to mend
From a surrogate friend
Because people will try to mangle
Up your beautiful ways
To make you more like them
If you let them

Their remorse may never show
So there’s no need to ever know
All the things they may have said about you
Just let them reap what they sow

I think that maybe I’d go crazy
Stuck in your privileged shoes
And your luxury cell
So I’m running
Though the pace is stumbling
Struck like a match to a fuse
I hope things turn out well
‘Cause it’s a hard sell

Because I see you in my class, girl
I see you nearly every day
You should be up on top of all the world
But you decorate your skies in gray

There is nothing worth cutting
Up your mind or body for
You’ll get no requiem
Because people will try to mangle
Up your beautiful ways
To make you more like them
So don’t you let them
Track Name: She's Candy Covered (Pookie remix)
There’s a girl you want
To give undying love to
But there’s no way, I know
You think she’s sweet as candy
But she’ll break up your family
So there’s no way, I know

Take you for a lover?
Take you for a fool!
Touch her heart of ice
You’ll never feel so cool

You think she must be candy covered
‘Cause she’s the sweetest thing
I’d never take her for a lover
Because you’ll break that ring
So buy some flowers for another
You’ve got to do the right thing
To make a songbird sing
She’s not the sweetest thing

I’ve an eye for many others
It’s my right to choose
But take a good thing from another
Well, that’s the way
That’s the way I’ll lose

There’s a girl you want to
Give undying love to
But there’s no way, I know
You think she’s cute as a button
But she’s a carnal glutton
So there’s no way, I know

See her after work
You see her when you can
But when your time is done
She’ll go home to her man
Track Name: Christian Army Falls (Sgt. Sticks remix)
I got the message when I was 5
Jesus died so I could be alive
Life was boring, but now it’s divine
At 6 I’m born again, and He’s my bottom line

The seeds that you sow
They’re what I know
Everything’s fun, and I will play
The seeds that you sow
They’re what I know
I’m useable, abusable
I know no other way

And I don’t want to die today
The Christian Army’s on it’s way
And I’m a Christian soldier
You’re the prey
I heard that someone has to die today

Foul agnostics with tempted souls
Will spend eternity like burning coals
There’s a devil in deep disguise
If you squint you’ll see him in enemy eyes

The seeds that you sow
They’re what I know
Everything’s fun, and I will play
The seeds that you sow
They’re what I know
I’m bendable, expendable
I’ll work for judgment day

Don’t you know we’ve got the biggest little army?
Lots of boys
To make your preference turn
Every one is just an apple in her eye
And I need to go
Before I cry
There’s something in the way

And now I want to cry today
They took my pastor far away
He’s into sex and meth
They say that he’s gay
But I have faith that he will find His way
Track Name: Hanz Blixx (WMD remix)
Are we ready? Are we set? Are we good?
‘Cause we ain’t found nothing yet

They’ve got me working for a crap wage
They’ve got me buried on the back page
I combed the place, there’s not a trace
I’m ready to run

Oh, I’m always looking for more
Oh, I’m always looking for more

Momma told me
Be what you are
Not everybody is meant to be a star

Is it hidden in a safe place?
They’ve got me looking for a save face
I took the train, to the plane
I’m ready to run

Oh, I’m always looking for more
Oh, I’m always looking for more

And I know, yes, I know
Nobody ever really wants to see me
See, I’ve taken all a good man can take
I’ve seen this all before
No one ever really wants to see me
When I’m knocking on their door

Are we ready? Are we set? Are we good?
‘Cause it isn’t curtains yet
Are we nervous?
Or are we bugged?
There’s a mic hidden underneath the rug
