Track Name: 24 Hour Girl
She a 24 hour girl
She go all the way
She a 24 hour girl
Yeah, she alright

She left her town
She's Memphis bound
Hits 40 as the sun goes down
All black and blue
She come unglued
She spread her wings and flew

She a 24 hour girl
She go all the way
She a 24 hour girl
Yeah, she alright

Some girls are really boys
So many boys want to be girls
So many girls want to be boys
Some boys are really girls

The trucks roll in
The trucks roll out
Near the Gibson/Carroll line
She loves going down
She just go to town
And she's just getting started at 9

She a 24 hour girl
She go all the way
She a 24 hour girl
Yeah, she all mine
Track Name: All Burned Out
He made a splash
But he's feeling trashed
His brain is cashed
He's all burned out
He's a real car crash
track-marked and lashed
His mind's the blade
His soul the gash
He's all burned out
Don't ask him for nothing cause he's all burned out

He's been coast to coast
He can proudly boast
But his brain is toast
He's all burned out
This unholy ghost
With no more barbed ripostes
Ought to get himself diagnosed
He's all burned out
Don't ask him for nothing cause he's all burned out

He's seen it all
Too high to fall
But he hit a wall
He's all burned out
He's in a public stall
He's on a sewer crawl
The night before he can't recall
He's all burned out
Don't ask him for nothing cause he's all burned out
Track Name: Androgynous World
Somewhere past the outer rim
where the sunshine is kind of dim
my noble ship crash landed
on the surface of some planet,
the likes of which I'd never seen before,
and when I stepped outside the capsule's door -

I found myself a man in an androgynous world
where the girls all look just like boys
and the boys look just like girls.
I found myself a man in an androgynous world.

The sky was pink on Ganymede;
the ground was smooth as silk.
The trees' leaves were all made of lace
and glitter rained from the sky.
But the people I met were even stranger still.
To discern the sexes was impossible when -

I found myself a man in an androgynous world
where the girls all look just like boys
and the boys look just like girls.
I found myself a man in an androgynous world.

I didn't know I was in for something bizarre, oh!
when I stepped onboard the Starship Pizarro
at Cape Canaveral.
But now I'm marooned on some orbiting moon
with looking-glass seas and green sand dunes
where transforming is natural.
Track Name: Anything
You're the girl that I want
and I'll do anything to make you mine.
The only one I'll ever love
and I'll do anything to make you mine.
I'll shoot your boyfriend in the head;
if you ask me to, I'll make him dead.
I'll do anything to change your mind.
I'll do anything to make you mind.

No one else can compare;
in beauty you have no peer.
The wise rose would never dare
to be photgraphed with you near.
I'd throw myself off of a roof;
if you ask me girl, here's the proof.
I'll do anything &ct.

You belong to me
although you do not know it yet.
Come on darling, can't you see
that upon you my heart is set.
For you, I'd steal a diamond ring.
For you, I'd steal most anything.
I'd do anything &ct.
Track Name: Bad Luck
It was bad luck when you met me.
It was bad luck when you met me.
I stole all of your cash,
smoked up all of your stash.
It was bad luck when you met me.

It was no good right from the start.
I only meant to break your heart.
I asked you on a date,
showed up 12 hours late.
It was bad luck when you met me.

How I live to stay out all night,
drag in drunk so we can have a fight.
Wail then cry a lake,
then we'll make this trailer shake.
It was bad luck when you met me.
Track Name: We're Over
The only thing I know about your dreams is I ain't in them no more.
Nothing is as it once seemed; my guts are down on the floor.
You were my sweet nightingale, my emerald, my red catchfly;
you came and broke me out of jail. Now I only wonder why -
We're over. We're over. We're through.

There is only one name on your shitlist and baby we both know it's mine.
It's plain to see that we're finished, now honey don't waste my time.
You were once the fleur-de-lis, now you are the candytuft,
hydrangea or narcissus. Or are you the wild plum?
We're over &ct.
Track Name: Leave Him and I'll Leave Her
You were more radiant than a sunrise
the seas all envied the depths of your eyes
I became yours from the moment we met
and on winning your love my heart became set
But you weren’t free to give yourself to me
My finger, too, was ringed; it compelled me to sing –
Leave him, leave him, leave him now.
Leave him, leave him and I’ll leave her.
Track Name: This Night
A
I finished my drinks and leaned into the dusk.
The fading sun tried hard to crush
E A
my mood but failed.
I slouched down Broadway; I hadn’t a plan
I could barely stand so I started to dance
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
I stumbled through a door, locked eyes with a girl
olive skin, green eyes framed in dark curls.
My, my! How my head swirled.
The room was crowded and the lights were dim.
Her smiled reached out and took the strength from my limbs.
Oh no! I won’t think of you.
D A
Because I’m feeling like this night belongs to me.
D A
Anything can happen ‘cause I feel so free!
D A F#m
Yes, I’m feeling like this night belongs to me, yeah yeah.
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
Yes!

Her car was in the alley, a little black hatchback.
We steamed the windows, “Stray Slack” for a soundtrack.
Dear Lord, I’m in love.
She said “there’s a party at the Econo Lodge!”
I replied “that’s strange, but who am I to judge?
Oh whoa! Baby, let’s go!”
She started the car, threw it into reverse,
it sputtered and she muttered my favorite curse,
but we were on our way.
We pulled into the lot at a quarter of 12,
delved into the motel it sweltered like hell.
Oh no! You’re not on my mind.
D A
Because I’m feeling like this night belongs to me.
D A
Anything can happen ‘cause I feel so free!
D A F#m
Yes, I’m feeling like this night belongs to me, yeah yeah.
E A
Oh whoa! Where will I go?
Yes!

Never had I seen so much PVC, so many
whips and chains and strange looks directed at me.
“I’m not sure about this,” I thought.
She handed me a drink. I took it in one draught.
She paused for a second, then hurled the wickedest laugh
I’d ever seen or heard.
Then all of a sudden, all eyes were on me,
my head started spinning, I wanted to flee
but I was too dizzy.
The next thing I knew I was being led on a chain.
I was light as a dewclaw, I was feeling no pain.
Oh whoa! Now I’m missing you.
