Track Name: Because I'm Awesome
I’ve got the new style, uh huh
And I’m walking right down your street
I’m on your speed dial, you know
The one everyone wants to meet

I always tell you how great you dress
It’s cause I’m fashionably socialized
You’re smarter, better, no, the best
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you cause I’m neato and I beat you
Cause I’m awesome
That’s right

They say I’m gifted, uh huh
Well I’m a certified prodigy
I’m gonna own you, uh huh
I’m gonna bring you to your knees

I always tell you how smart you are
It’s cause my brain is really supersized
You’re an academic superstar
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you cause I’m neato and I beat you
Cause I’m awesome
That’s right

Got a career plan, uh huh
Gonna make lots of money
And bought a self tan, uh huh
Don’t I look healthy?

I always tell you how great you smell
It’s cause I’m naturally deodorized
You’re stronger, faster and can spell
Just look at me

I’m a leader, I’m a winner, And I’m cleaner
Cause I’m awesome
I don’t need you cause I’m neato and I beat you
Cause I’m awesome
That’s right (2X)

Rah rah rah rah rah rah rah! (3X)
I don’t need you
Cause I’m Awesome
Uh huh

Track Name: Out of L.A.
A driving hot day
The whisky warms my body
Out through the desert
We’re passing means we’re on our way
We’re on our way out of LA

The snowy Converse
Melt on me while I’m walking
So sick and broken
Not gonna make it past halfway
We’re on our way out of LA

On and on and on and on and on and on we won’t be long
And on and on and on and on and on and on we don’t be long, we won’t belong

Basements Wisconsin
The Abbey Lounge in Boston
A floor to sleep on
A two-month bender so I say
We’re on our way out of LA

On and on and on and on and on and on we won’t be long
And on and on and on and on and on and on we don’t belong, we won’t be long, we don’t belong, we won’t belong

Hey hey hey, Hey hey hey
NO oh oh, no oh

No concrete ocean
Nobody telling me to
But we keep looking
For those we’ve lost along the way
While on our way out of LA

We won’t be long, we won’t be long, we don’t belong, we won’t be long, don’t belong, won’t belong!
Track Name: Brand New Key
Lyrics by Melanie Safka
Track Name: Hysteria
You think it’s funny
To keep me waiting
But I’m not laughing it’s so wrong so wrong
It’s got me feeling
Under the weather
But you can cure me won’t take too long too long

Time need some of the
Only thing that makes me calm

I like it when you touch me touch me
You keep me waiting so long so long
I like it when you touch me touch me
Your kiss your kiss is curing my hysteria huh
Uh huh

And you’re my favorite
When I can’t take it
So come on over and hold on hold on
You kissy face me
Can’t take your teasing
And now you’re dragging me along along

I need some of your
Time need some of the
Only thing that makes me calm

You keep me waiting so long so long
I like it when you touch me touch me
Your kiss your kiss is curing my hysteria huh

Touch me touch me
So long so long
Touch me touch me

Only thing

Your kiss your kiss is curing my hysteria huh

Track Name: A Desperate S.O.S.
Mass extinctions global warming we need DNA profiling
Anti-government militia ecoli from baby kissing
Seatbelts seatbelts
Strangle me when I don’t listen

Satellites are listening an asteroid is gonna hit
The corporations steal your money we all know that Bush is phony
Secrets secrets
I’ll stay inside if it’s code yellow

Another another
And I can’t back down , I can’t back down again
Another another
With my back to the wall, Yeah this is the call
Reaching to crawl out, reaching to call out
S. O. S.
They wanna hear this
S. O. S.
They wanna hear this
S. O. S.

So fuck this

Spinning alley big big brother families broken struggling mothers
Terror plotting greenhouse gassing always looking for another
Defect defect
In my genes will make me get sick

Ice caps melting children killing mass destruction atom bombing
Homelessness rising mad cow slaying think they stole my eyes for cloning
Star wars star wars they hunt us down with pinpoint lasers

Another another
And I can’t back down , I can’t back down again
Another another
With my back to the wall, Yeah this is the call
Reaching to crawl out, reaching to call out
S. O. S.
They wanna hear this

So fuck this

Who are you afraid of?

Star wars star wars making us call out
Making us call out

Track Name: Watch Me Go
I’m gonna tell a little story
About the ones I left and left me
You’ll know if you’re one
Cause you know what you’ve done
Woah oh

Spending days and nights with Matty
For weeks on end only to dump me
I had my suspicions
Your jealous convictions
Woah oh

And you deny
You’ve done wrong
Well I‘ve kept my mouth shut too long

Get out of my way oh way oh
First you kissed me then you killed me
Get out of my way oh way oh
Won’t stop me watch me go
Watch me go

Eddie always wore a tie
Got drunk and called and made me cry
Why he did it
He wouldn’t admit it
Woah oh

Emilio was a two-timer
Hooked up with my friend the liar
Spread the wrong story
Made sweet people hate me
Woah oh

And you deny
You’ve done wrong
Well I‘ve kept my mouth shut too long

Get out of my way oh way oh
First you kissed me then you killed me
Get out of my way oh way oh
Won’t stop me watch me go
Watch me go


Still you deny
You’ve done wrong
Well I‘ve kept my mouth shut too long

Get out of my way oh way oh
First you kissed me then you killed me
Get out of my way oh way oh
Won’t stop me watch me
Get out of my way oh way oh
First you kissed me then you killed me
Get out of my way oh way oh
Won’t stop me
Watch me go
Watch me go
Watch me go
Just watch me go
Watch me go!
Track Name: This Crush
I see him there
Why do I care
His reputation warns me
To be with him, be with him, be with him, be with him
Fulfill his whim, fill his whim, fill his whim, fill his whim
And hope he keeps me maybe

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me
No oh oh, wha oh oh oh

We’re doing fine
I shouldn’t mind
But when he keeps me waiting
To be untrue, be untrue, be untrue, be untrue
Oh what to do, what to do, what to do, what to do
I know he’ll soon be paying

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me
No oh oh, oh oh oh oh

But all I want to know is should I let him go
Or kill him tonight in his sleep
No matter what my choice
He won’t be taking me

Was my boyfriend
With her again
I guess he’s found another
So now my turn is over

This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me
This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for
This crush is dangerous
I know he has no love for me
This crush was dangerous
I know he has no love for me
No oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Cat Calling
No! No!
No! No!
No! No!

Hey baby baby
Whatcha want your calling me
Dumb standing around the lunch truck so greedily
Hey baby baby
Just another dog I see
Rolling in the dirt you’re barking up the wrong tree

So maybe you’re crazy
Never get a bone
Ooh you’re just too much man for me
Yeah maybe you’re crazy
Never catch me

Cat cat calling so I’m out of here
No no never gonna hear you
No no never to be near you
Never to be near you

Hey baby baby

Bang bang your hammer
Caveman sensibilities

So maybe you’re crazy
Never get a bone
Ooh you’re just too much man for me

Acting out a fantasy
(Hey baby baby)
I’ll get you so bad you’re crying for my sympathy

Track Name: 17
Don’t you think you’re a bit too grey
Inviting her out for a coffee
Enamoured by pictures you paint
Spontaneous lust so naïve

Making out
Strawberries and skinny swimming
Keeps coming back because she was young
And that’s how you like them to stay

Hold me hold me
Tell me I’m the only
One I want to
17 and lonely
I want you
I want you
All to myself
That’s what he told me

Casual you ask her to play
Illusions of romance burning
Innocent but still no mistakes
Cause she smelled his last girl victim

Sneaking out
Heart pounding her bare feet racing
Dangerously close to her last chance
Cause he almost got her to stay

Hold me hold me
Tell me I’m the only
One I want to
17 and lonely
I want you
I want you
All to myself
That’s what he told me
Hold me hold me
Tell me I’m the only
One I want to
17 and lonely
17
She’s just 17

He knows what works he put out the bait
She bites again unsuspecting
He’s beautiful such a worldly face
She’s thinking he’ll be her teacher

Figured out
She’s soft and she thinks you’re worth it
Keeps coming back each time more jaded
We wonder what made her that way
We wonder what made her that way

Hold me hold me
Tell me I’m the only
One I want to
17 and lonely
I want you
I want you
All to myself
That’s what he told me
Hold me hold me
Tell me I’m the only
One I want to
17 and lonely
I want you
I want you
All to myself
That’s what he told me
17
Track Name: Nobody Wants U
It must be how you look
When you woke up
Or got choked up
Ruby eyes bloodshot

See the way you can’t sit still
With no mention
But attention
For a dead flower

So I write write write
All the things I didn’t miss
And despite spite spite
My conclusion is

Nobody wants you
Nobody wants you
Like I do

It must be what you said
Just the wrong time
To be laughing
What goes through that head
And you won’t just act you age
So you dance it
Too romantic
Put me on display

So I write write write
All the reasons I should quit
Change my mind mind mind
Cause my conclusion is

Nobody wants you
Nobody wants you
Like I do
Like I do
Like I do

Excuses, abuses
You’ve used me up
My patience, can’t take it
I’ve had enough

It must be meant to be
When you make up
From the breakup
So now I see
It must me how you looked
When you woke –up
Right here next to me

I made a list you found it
And you left and said we’re through
So I’m here outside your window
In the dark and calling you
It opens hear you breathing
My fingers through you hair
Tell me
Tell me
Tell me
Tell me

Nobody wants you
Nobody wants you
Like I do
Like I do
Like I do
I do
I do
I do
I do
I do
I do
Track Name: Turn You Down
Keep on checking around inside but I can’t can’t find it
Wasted all my time because I won’t convince you
You tease me

Cause now I’m making up the sounds of feeling nothing
Played me it’s a joke and you just confuse me
