if i show you that i'm alive if i show you i've got feelings inside if i show you that i'm not perfect then will you know that you can hurt me but if you think that i'm not strong you best watch out nothing can stop me i read your words and cry you betray my trust a million times you poison my life with lies you victimize, victimize, victimize you victimize but if you think that i'm not strong you best watch out nothing can stop me i got a heart that's true i got somethings i must do i know that everything's fucked up but i ain't ever gonna shut up but if you think that i'm not strong you best watch out nothing can stop me not you, not you!

Decide 04:21
Do you wanna get married baby Is that the way he said it Is that the way you asked him I know you have to live your life and i live mine But when i think about it, it still makes me want to cry I will decide my life I will decide No man is gonna rule my life I will decide Make a million promises that you won't keep Holding on boygirl i'm dying in my sleep Wait for something different Holding on to nothing else but him Waiting on forever Waiting on tomorrow Waiting on a faery tale You can get rid of all those traps they put around you But can you get rid of that seed they planted in your head So is he a real prince charming is he really worth it All those things i saw you give up I wait for a happy ending But i will never say goodbye

Stay Away 03:19
I saw the way you looked that day I saw the way you looked at me I know the things you want from me I know the things you take from me My love my life my words my heart My innocence was torn apart I'll never trust a word you say You're just a bad memory Stay away I feel the rain as it comes down I feel like i am being drowned You always sit and watch me die A fuckin' million times I want to know Does anything touch you any more Or are you rotten inside I wish that you would just die Do you think that this is for you Do you think that i'd do anything for you Do you think that i adore you Do you think that this is for you I still breathe i'm still alive There's things that you can't take inside My love my life my words my heart Are things that you can't take apart I could do this a million times I'm one of the bravest girls alive I feel inside I feel that you have already died

Calculated 01:54
My hate for you is a passion That will run for a million years My fury is a force that is equal to A billion of your tears It's calculated What I'll get back I'm taking everything I'll get it back, well I've got a knife that's sharpened Exactly for one white boy My target is your heart And the knife will go deep The knife will go inside It's calculated What I'll get back I'm taking everything I'll get it back I'll get it back I'll get it back

I don't know how to be good to you You're too close and you know it too Nobody has a good enough excuse I'm just fucked up and so are you I love you so much you could hurt me So I do it first so you won't see me Laugh it off and I don't feel it Hard as rocks and nails underneath Hardly anyone is sincere All I know is anger that is real I barely know how true goodness feels I don't even know how to feel I know I built walls all around I'm begging you to knock them down But yours are just as big and mean as mine Tight defenses and we draw the line If you want to go, just go I'll watch you walk away I don't care if you go I'll watch you walk away I'll die if you go I'll watch you walk away Stop everything Stop all these fucked up games Promise me we'll be good to each other Promise me, I need it signed, sealed, delivered Stop everything Or my heart will break My pride isn't worth it Help me this is hurting If you want to go just go I'll watch you walk away Super girl She isn't real I can't fly all alone I can't even get off the ground I don't know what else to say I don't want to push you away I need your help today I can't get off the ground today

White Girl 01:42
We should have talked about this a long time ago, But I didn’t have to think about it, And that's what this song is about. White girl. I want to change the world, But I won’t change anything, Unless I change my racist self. It's a privilege, it's a background. It's everything that I own, It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white song, It's thinking I'm the hero of this pretty white world. White girl. I want to change the world, But I won't change anything Unless I change my racist self.

Paralyzed 04:25
I've seen the way you looked at the sky you looked right up at it with unclouded eyes that ain't the way I see anything I don't know if I can stand another day of rain you left the nest so long ago you walked right out one day it was easy for you ruffle your feathers everything you have in my face well, I had to leave my wings at home today cause I've seen you in the sky how did you get so high? I don't know how to fly cause you leave me paralyzed I wonder why only some of us get to touch the sky you were born with blue, baby boy blue in your eyes you were born to touch the sky, the sky my sky, my sky cause I've seen you in the sky how did you get so high? cause I don't know how to fly and you leave me paralyzed I know why only some of us get to touch the sky I know what privilege is I know what mine is, and why but if I could, I'd steal yours and I would fly so fucking high cause I've seen you in the sky how did you get so high? cause I don't know how to fly and you leave me paralyzed I wonder why only some of us get to touch the sky all that I can do is watch you fly all that I can do is watch you fly all that I can do is say goodbye

about

A fucking great record. Gut-wrenching and powerful. Corin (Sleater-Kinney) and Tracy (the Lies) caught many people's ears off guard with their loud & passionate early 90's debut. Now it's your turn.
