Andrew Triplett I saw Their Performance LIVE, on TV though, at the Children's Cancer Benefit in London a short while back, and they played, "Die Young", and, (I Kid You Not), I had to had the album right then!!! Watching her play guitar & sing LIVE like that, + her attitude, reminded me sooo much of Kurt Cobain's performances. I'd love to see them Live, but right near DC, who knows. Before you buy this, find that LIVE performance on Youtube, it was from 2012 I THINK, it's easy to find on Youtube. Favorite track: Die Young.

Track Name: Darling Dear
I throw myself out of bed
Throw myself in the chair
And dress my two naked feet

Some clothes
Some bottles some books
A letter with it written
Words that say:

My darling dear
Come back to bed
My darling dear
There’s a sweet bitter taste
Running through my head

The very next day
I’m half undressed
You find me lying
On an empty bed

Pistol in hand
Objects here and there
You wake me with a jump
And an evil stare

My darling dear
Come back to bed
Come back to bed
My darling dear

And you
You want to get me out of here
You want to take me from my obscure world
Back into your head
Back into your bed
What will be wrong then?
When we are all dead?
You said to show you my tongue
But the chemist is closed
And the world is my song
La la la la…

My darling dear
Come back to bed…

And so it’s here
That I find my pistol
Diffuse it of its bullets
And push it to my head

‘Cos I got no reason
And I got no mind
‘Cos I got no reason
And I got no mind
Can’t stop the blood
Pouring from my head
Can’t stop the blood
Pouring from my head

My darling dear
Come back to bed…
Track Name: Bang! Bang!
Finished up the nightshift
Feelin’ kind of up for it
Waiting at the bus stop
Smoke a fag until it stops
Listenin’ to my music
Wishin’ I could fluke it
Gates to hell are open
1,2,3 and here we go!

Blow a kiss if it feels right
Blow a kiss if it feels right
Blow me a kiss if it feels right
Blow me a kiss now sugar

Going to the Ghetto
Kick the door as I go
S’all gettin’ friendly
All a cause for envy
Party on the West End
Tying up my loose ends
There’s a lip swingin’ hips
And I think I just found the girl

Blow a kiss if it feels right…

Digging up for sunlight
Drinking all the red wine
We got no money
The bouncer’s getting funny
Slidin’ on the floor
And the toilet seats a bore
I just wanna go now
Just wanna go! go! go!

We’re gonna break, gonna suffocate – oh!…

Blow a kiss if it feels right…

Found a cab outside
Throwin’ up my insides
Slouchin’ on the back seat
Wishin’ you would kiss me
Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!
Gotta Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!
S’gonna break! S’gonna break!
S’gonna break! S’gonna break!

Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!
Track Name: Am I Crazy?
Shake me well
Before I open
Do you think that
I am wasted?
I travel light
When I’m not needed
I travel light
Into the night
Into the night
Into the night

Am I crazy? Am I crazy?
Am I crazy? I’m out of my tiny mind
Am I crazy? Am I crazy?
Am I crazy? I’m out of my tiny mind

Send! Send for help!
Won’t you send! Send for help!
Send! Send for help!
Won’t you send! Send for help!

I didn’t plan to, I didn’t plan to
I didn’t plan to fall in love with you
I didn’t plan to, I didn’t plan to
I didn’t plan to fall in love
Fall in love, fall love with you

You point the way
You want to go
Be strong we live in circles of tomorrow
The hour clock strikes ‘one’
No will
I lie here awake and
I’m restless and pacing
I’m restless and pacing
I’m restless and pacing
I’m restless and pacing

Am I crazy?…

Send! Send for help!

I didn’t plan to…

Est-ce-que j’suis folle?
Est-ce-que j’suis folle?
Danser dans la mer
On a glisse dans l’air
Est-ce-que j’suis folle?
Est-ce-que j’suis folle?
Danser dans la mer
On a glisse dans l’air
We danced through the air
We slipped through the sea
But when our eyes met
For you I let go of me fear
You smiled and said
“Sorry you were late
Sorry you were late
Sorry you were… late?!”

Send! Send for help!…

I didn’t plan to…

I’m out of my tiny!
I’m out of my tiny!
To fall in love
Fall in love with you
Track Name: Heroin Dance
Rising blue smoke in golden air,
Where the promises you held have gone,
Deep clear water or violent days?
Years pass in the shadows as we fade.

Where will I find protection?
From the lonely days when I cry alone,
Who’s gonna give me salvation?
When above all I wanna be loved.

Before I sleep you turn your back on me,
I fall to my knees in rage,
You raise your hand against my check,
World moves in spite of my pain.

Where will I find protection?
From the lonely days when I cry alone,
Who’s gonna give me salvation?
When above all I wanna be loved.

I don’t want to die alone,
Wanna say that I love back to someone,
I just want to be loved,
Will you take me to the last dance, my heroin?

If there’s another way to love,
There’s another way to fall,
If there’s another way to hurt,
Then I want to hurt more,
If there’s another way to take,
Then I want to take it all,
How long?
How long?
If there’s another way to move,
There’s another way to breath,
If there’s another way to take,
There’s another way to need,
If there’s another way to change,
Then I wanna stay the same,
How long?
How long?

I don’t want to die alone,
I just want to be loved,
Wanna say that I love back to someone,
Will you take me to the last dance? My heroin.

Charming blue vein,
Golden sun,
Let me fade to where the nightshade has gone.
Track Name: Sweat n Shiver
Sweat ‘n shiver
Sweat ‘n shiver

Don’t you know that I never really loved?
‘Cos the sun don’t rise in the east
I’m looking through the eyes of a vanishing mask
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep

Whisper me cold blazing light
Whisper my cold blazing light
It’s early morning keep the curtain closed
I been out all night and I lost my name

Sweat ‘n shiver…

Hands and knees, crawling on the floor
Cigarette burning on a cockroach wall
Tear and suck, said my skin crawls
Chewing on a mattress, screaming up the walls.

Don’t you know that I never really loved?
‘Cos the sun don’t rise in the east
I’m looking through the eyes of a vanishing mask
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep
My eyes are glazed I’m pretending to sleep

Whisper me cold blazing light
Whisper my cold blazing light
Like you I could live on a grain of sugar

Sweat ‘n shiver…

Scratch me, won’t you scratch my back?
I said, I’m tired, I’m tortured, I’m drowning
I’m looking through the eyes of a vanishing mask
I can’t sleep I can’t hold my thoughts

The Cadillac man keeps standing in the hall
Keeps banging his fist on my motel wall
Won’t you scratch me? won’t you scratch my back?
I said I’m tired, I’m tortured, I’m drowning

I can’t sleep I can’t hold my thoughts…
Track Name: Baffled and Beat
I feel like going away
To a place in the sun
Where people play
Where music sings
I’m out on the beach
I hear people talk about
The bird and the bees
La la la la
La la la la

I feel like the echo of a cockle
Where nothing looks right
Even through your eyes
I swagger like a cowboy
To get out of sight,
There’s a bad taste of karma
And I’m dead in advance
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la
La la la la

In the low light
I watch you
In the low light
I watch you

Constrained
Baffled and beat
It’s the sky and the sea
Where the shore line meets
And the sun and the journey
Dances in-between

I feel like going away
To a place in the sun
Where people play
Where music sings
I’m out on the beach
I hear people talk about
The bird and the bees
La la la la
La la la la

Like the echo of a cockle
Where nothing looks right
Swagger like a cowboy
To get out of sight,
There’s a bad taste of karma
And I’m dead in advance
In your eyes see the pain of mine

I feel like going away…

See the rain
Cover the sea
Blue sky fall
Down to its knees
I fell to the earth
Drank tears from your cheek
Feel the heat won’t let me breathe

I feel like going away…
Track Name: You, Me and the TV
She’s a gin-soaked heroine
In worn out shoes
In the furthest corner of her dream
There’s a coded truth
She’s the dirt with desires
Oh! That just aren’t mine
Where is your love for me?
Can you cure my mind?

People move in the hope of a better life
People kiss yourself good morning and good night
You can’t cancel me
Even if I leave London
And turn on the TV

As the libertine betrays
The romantic lover
And beauty becomes
Lighter than the lightness of feathers
Without warning
Sing as you march!
Where is your love for me?
Can you cure my heart?

People…

I’m dying for a smoke
In exchange for a piece of lived life
Too tired to hate
Relieve my sorrow with knife!
As we kiss and hiss and spit at one another
Where is your love for me?
Can you cure desire?

People..

People…

Oh no! You can’t cancel me
Even if I leave London
And turn off the TV
Track Name: Die Young
I am the sun
I borrow your name
Got off my motorbike
Walked to the dust
Through the desert plain

When I first came here
There was a black hole
Now there’s an ocean
I am floating doll

Whistle in vain
I whistle alone
Wish I could have loved you
My flesh and bone
We’re all born to die
We live alone
Fetch me a pistol
And get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Let me die young

I am the wind
Undress my skin
You keep me dancing still
My shadows on a cliff
And I’ve already fallen in

When I first came here
There was a black hole
Now there’s an ocean
I am floating doll

I’m helpless
I’m helpless

Whistle in vain…

Tomorrow’s horizon
S’gonna come and visit me
To announce
To announce its promises of hate
I hate it when its words aren’t for me

Whistle in vain…

Whistle in vain
I whistle alone
I wish I could have loved you
My flesh and bone
We’re all born to die
We live alone
Fetch me a pistol
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Get me a gun
Track Name: Luck's Run Out
I lost my way
I lost myself
I am hurt
My luck’s run out

I’m here and I can’t explain
Why I live in nerves
My records are old
My cat’s dead
I’m bored of the radio
I’m waiting for promises
Of something that never came
Don’t push me now
I am the life of the party

I lost my way…

An empty stare
An evil thought
A fist hangs in the air
Locked in a room
With my sick head
Lying naked on the floor
Is this the life that I’ve been living for?

I lost my way…
Track Name: Whiplash
The night
Is sleeping
And the people
They are waking
I’m fine with that
Said “I’m fine with that”

Protect me from the people
They are strangers
I’m so lonely
I’m fine with that
Said “I’m fine with that”

Life is naked without you
My life is naked without you

You give me whiplash
I got whiplash
You give me heart attack
I got kickback
You give me whiplash
I got whiplash
You give me kickback
And I love it when
You paint your eyes black
Est-ce-que j’t’ai dit que j’t’aime?

Skinny fingers
Make me nervous
Call me over
And break faith
I’m fine with that
Said “I’m fine with that”

The floor
You will find me
All my pleasures
They serve me pain
I’m fine with that
Said “I’m fine with that”

Life is naked without you
My life is naked without you

You give me whiplash…
Track Name: Hallelujah
Wind’s crawling through
Winter wants some warming
I feel like a thief
Looking for religion
In an unknown city
Makes breathing so God damn heavy

If one is hurt
The other will shortly follow
Spirit is injured first
And money your friends will borrow
Dying we’re told is easy
So why is living so God damn hard?

I cried Mercy
They gave me Hallelujah
I cried Mercy
They gave me Hallelujah

You can be the skeleton or the meat
Behind there’ll be your enemies
Better than the key, to your creed
Is the cold affection of the sun

Sweat, blood and water!
Sweat, blood and water!
I feel like money, look like money
Sin in being poor, no sin in poor
Sin in being poor, no sin in poor

Sweat, blood and water!
Sweat, blood and water!
I feel like money, look like money
Sin in being poor, no sin in poor
Sin in being poor, no sin in poor

Song of ‘the shirt’ is “work, work, work”
Song of ‘the shirt’ is “work, work”
Song of ‘the shirt’ is “work, work, work”

I cried Mercy
They gave me Hallelujah
I cried Mercy
They gave me Hallelujah
I cried Mercy
They gave me Hallelujah
I cried Mercy

They gave me Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Track Name: Sorry State
I sing
My sorry name
Is there nothing left to say?
My tomorrow
It has gone missing now
And the clock on the wall
It is my witness
Keep hold of the simple things

Why does misery like company?
You’re such a sorry state
Throw your anchor out at me

Why does…

I chose
To forget the day
And everyday feels
Just like a Monday
I switchin’ off the stars
With my dreams of people
They keep judging me
My worth
My empty stare
No I’m not free.

Why does…

I’m dyed black
I’m on the ocean
And no-one sets me free
I been waiting for days
For you to find me
Come, follow me

Why does…

I don’t know?
Why you’re unknown?

Why does misery like company?
You’re such a sorry state
Throw your anchor out to sea
