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.

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…

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!

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

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.

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…

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…

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

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

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…

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…

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

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
