Track Name: Full Grown Man
Hiding in a cellar with a new born pony
Holding out for the day when the prices come down
Scanning through the papers looking for your one and only
Cutting out the oysters from a road kill cat

Your kind of innocent
To how the world sees you
You're kind of stupid
And kind of ugly too

The world ain't gonna stop from turning
The world ain't gonna stop just to watch you burn

Hiding from the world taking pot-shots in the corner
Smiling at the girls cos it makes you cry
Some day you'll change your ways, everyday we think you oughta
Cos hidden in you belly is a full grown man

Your kind of innocent
To how the world sees you
You're kind of stupid
And kind of ugly too

The world ain't gonna stop from turning
The world ain't gonna stop just to watch you burn
Track Name: Heart Of Stone
Give me what i want, what i need
Give me what i want, or something in between

I'm not the kind to wait my turn
And that's the thing you'll need to learn
Make no mistake, treat me well
Put me on a pedastal, give me a crown

Give me what i want, what i need
Give me what i want, or something in between

The heat is on, can you keep up
You are responsible, you're out of luck
I'll be your queen up on a throne
Baby you'll experience my heart of stone

Give me what i want, what i need
Give me what i want, or something in between

Give me your love
Track Name: Thief In The Night
What the hell have you done to me?
Can't get you out of my head, you're like a disease
I keep a picture of you and me
And when i see it my heart just skips a beat
It's like you're putting a spell on me
You make me weak at the knees, I fall at your feet
Like you make me a slave to you
Click your fingers and i come running to you

You keep stealing my heart like a thief in the night
If loving you is so wrong why does it feel right?
Everything was so dark, you came to light up my life

I'm so frustrated, can hardly speak
What can i do to get you to notice me
When I'm with you it's like ecstasy
You don't need diamonds to sweep me off my feet

You keep stealing my heart like a thief in the night
If loving you is so wrong why does it feel so right?
Everything was so dark, you came to light up my life
Track Name: How We Roll
Watch out baby, here i come
I've been talking to the devil gonna sell him my soul

Oh, whoa, whoa, gonna sell my soul
Whoa, whoa, whoa sell him my soul

How we roll
Give in to me, give in to me
How we roll
Your love to me, your love to me

Look out baby, here i come
Your little fire in me made me come undone
Watch me baby, that's how i roll
I'm hanging by a string the devils got my soul

Oh, whoa, whoa, yeah he's got my soul
Whoa, whoa, whoa, I gave him my soul

How we roll
Give in to me, give in to me
How we roll
Your love to me, your love to me
Never think twice, never do right for you
And i just cannot take anymore
Track Name: Story
In the beginning it was good
You had a hold on my heart
Treated me the way you should
Then you tore us apart
You took me over with your charm
You had to take my breath away
Felt so good upon your arm
And then you threw me away

The moral of the story is let nobody in
When you let someone into your heart then you never win
Trust nobody but yourself, i don't trust a thing
The moral of the story is let nobody in

You rolled me up inside myself
Was hoping it was just a phase
You put my life upon a shelf
And then you covered me in chains
I never wanted it like this
I never wanted it to end
There's only so much i can smile
And i'm too tired to pretend

The moral of the story is let nobody in
When you let someone into your heart then you never win
Trust nobody but yourself, i don't trust a thing
The moral of the story is let nobody in

Why did i let you in?
Track Name: Something For The Minute
I'm tired of waiting, so put me out of my misery
If it's a game you're playing, i hope you pray for you and me
Don't try to change me, I'm who i wanna be
And I've been messed around before, don't go messing with me
And I've been messed around before, don't go messing with me

You need a taste of your own medicine
I said you
Still taste the lies upon your lips
Still taste the poison on your kiss
You need a taste of your own medicine

Overhear your conversation
Reassess the situation
I'm not one for confrontation
What a fool you're making of me
Suffocating, i ain't breathing
Can't believe what i am hearing

What a fool you're making of me
Make you wish you'd never met me
Should've thought twice about messing with me
This is how it feels to be free
Track Name: Save Me
Holding on for so long
Waiting for you to come home
But it's over, over, over
Waiting for you to call
Turn the time back on it all
But it's over, over, over

I guess it's in my hands to get you back now baby, baby
I know i let you down, I am to blame now baby, baby
I guess it's in my hands to get you back now baby, baby
I know i let you down, I am to blame now save me

You said you'd save me
Save me
Save me from this hell
Go on and save me
Save me
Save me from myself

She's like the enemy to her friend
It's like she's haunting me, will this end?
Cos it's over, over, over
I never wanted to leave this way
She's suffocating me every day
Now it's over, over, over
Track Name: The Haunting
As i sit here alone, throwing the next bottle down
Drowning my sorrows, drowning my sorrows
I feel so empty inside, to all your lies i was blind
How was i to know?, how was i to know?

And maybe, maybe i was foolish, and i drove you away
But baby, how could you have put me through that pain

No no no, this is not the way it goes, what do you take me for?
I am not your ragdoll, you can't push me around

And as i lie here alone, with your ghost by my side
Haunting my mind, haunting my mind
I feel so empty inside, to all your lies i was blind
How was i to know?, how was i to know?
Track Name: Dancefloor
Turn the lights down, turn the music up
I love it, i just can't get enough
I feel the beat run through my head
You are here, the night has just begun
Think I've been drinking too much
This wine's just gone right too my head

Everyone's jumping
The bassline is pumping
The DJ is mixing up our favourite song

It tingles on my lips
Right to my fingertips
Feel the music through me, don't know what it's doing to me
Moving to the beat
Can't help but move my feet
Get up off your seat, I'll see you on the dancefloor

My head is spinning round the room
The night is just electric
The bassline's in time to my heart
And you here, the night has just begun
Think I've been drinking too much
Time to stop but I'm just ready to go

Everyone's jumping
The bassline is pumping
The DJ is mixing up our favourite song

It tingles on my lips
Right to my fingertips
Feel the music through me, don't know what it's doing to me
Moving to the beat
Can't help but move my feet
Get up off your seat, I'll see you on the dancefloor
Track Name: Voodoo Doll
You mix my whiskey with some iodine
Then count the lashes round your eyes of emerald green
You look peculiar, don't know what you mean
Holding your hostess trolley and a bottle of gin
You make your coffee with your cigarette
But you scream, It's a ploy just to get you undressed
We went out dancing on an unmarked grave
I saw the sadness in your eyes, you hold the key that you made

You keep pulling me down when I'm ready to rise
Don't you know that I'll keep on going
You keep pulling me down when I'm willing to try
Don't you know that I'll keep on trying

You see the ladies in the magazines
It's not the beauty but the hair that's making you green
You look the same, I don't know what you mean
Stand in the mirror you look similar to me
Drowning your sorrows in another dream
Live in somebody elses shoes just to change the scene
Living a life that wasn't right for me
I walked a mile in your shoes, but the shoes weren't clean

You keep pulling me down when I'm ready to rise
Don't you know that I'll keep on going
You keep pulling me down when I'm willing to try
Don't you know that I'll keep on trying

You left your footprints on the bedroom floor
Although i hate you, you still leave me wanting more
Sticking the needles in a voodoo doll
Like a puppet on a string, you were in control
