Track Name: Cool
everything i learned
everything i've learned the hard way
if you want to play
if you want to play
game on

you're so cool
i wanna be just like you, baby
you're so cool
i wanna be just like you, yeah!

he says
it's such a lovely way to escape
just a little bit never
hurt no one and
i think it's just a dirty shame
his grinding teeth
and fast beating heart
give him away

you're so cool
i wanna be just like you, baby
you're so cool
i wanna be just like you, yeah!
Track Name: Shoot to Kill
This will be quick
But not painless
On the surface I seem calm
But inside I'm a ticking bomb
When I'm reaching for my gun
You know I'm gonna get it done

Cuz don't you know that
I shoot to kill
And I can turn on a dime
And everybody knows
I shoot to kill
And no one's going to survive

Time is creeping past
How long can I last
When my temper flares and I see red
I just can't count to ten
I'm a girl with a short fuse
and I will make you pay your dues

Cuz don't you know that
I shoot to kill
and I can turn on a dime
And everybody knows
I shoot to kill
and no one's going to survive
Track Name: Lost
here in her room
she feels like elastic
and looks like it, too
and what can she do
when cocaine and parties
leave no time for school
and she eats no food
just coffee and nicotine
plenty of boose

oh yeah, she's lost her mind
and she don't ever want to find it
oh yeah, she's lost track of time
and she don't ever want to find it

in her high heel shoes
and her tiny mini skirt
she makes the rules
and what can she do
when cocaine and parties
leave no time for school
she says meet me at noon
i promise that i'll have
the money real soon

oh yeah, she's lost her mind
and she don't ever want to find it
oh yeah, she's lost track of time
and she don't ever want to find it

what a shame
to realize
that the hardest way is the "easy way"
Track Name: Wolf
the little boy who cried wolf
grew up and had a son
taught him every thing he knew
didn't stop til he was done
taught him how to cheat
showed him when and where
said "don't accept defeat
and don't ever really care"

say, "baby,
I really mean it
I really mean it
I really do
I swear I've seen it
I swear I've seen it
I swear it's true
No I would never lie to you."

Wolf

the little boy who cried wolf
he rarely spoke the truth
told his girls all kinds of lies
because they were his prize
he liked to be one to leave
not the other way around
he liked to keep them on a string
and so he made this sound

"I really mean it
I really mean it
I really do
I swear I've seen it
I swear I've seen it
I swear it's you
No I would never lie to you."

Wolf

Keep singing,
"I really mean it
I really mean it
I really do
I swear I've seen it
I swear I've seen it
I swear it's you, and only you
No I would never lie to you."

Wolf
Track Name: Streets of Detroit
Empty as the streets of Detroit
My heart, cold as ice in the winter
Crashing down into the Earth
Like a plane up in flames
Falling faster
As fast as the beating of my heart
Slower than the tick of time
When you're waiting to find out
The answer

No, you'll never have me
No, you'll never have me

No, you'll never find me
No, you'll never find me
