Track Name: Queen of Them All
I ain’t a lot of bark, I’m a lot of bite too
Rub me the right way, I’ll be a sweetie to you
But if man’s best friend is made to cry
You better cross your heart and hope to die

So watch your back, young man
To the ground you fall because
I ain’t one of the boys
I’m the queen of them all

Look out now, I’m coming for you
The beast under your bed needs a hunk o’ meat to dig into
I got no pack to follow, I’m a one man show
I howl at the moon running through the snow

I ain’t a lot of bark, I’m a lot of bite too
Rub me the right way, I’ll be a sweetie to you
I’m the alpha bitch you’ve never seen before
You’ll give me an inch, I’ll take a mile more
Track Name: Springtime Devil
Springtime Devil, can’t you see
I don’t want you, you don’t want me
I’ll sing it right into your ear
You’ll have to try another year
What could’ve been, what still could be
Were dead and gone when I found me
A real love that I still hold
Twelve months a year here in the cold

Your silver tongue was tarnished long ago
From time to time, you cross my mind
But at the crossroads
You won’t find me there to meet you

Every spring, come back to me
Your big brown eyes, your silver tongue
The same old thing that I heard sung to me last spring
You’re living off a memory
Of youth, not love, of apathy
Misanthropy’s a sentiment you provoke in me so well
I won’t descend back to your hell
Track Name: Lost
L – O – S – T
Let’s get lost

I wanna get lost
In your vagrant eyes
They may be strangers
But they sympathize
You move so fast
And I rev so high
Youth seems to trap me
As the night draws nigh

Give me something to consume
The match is lit, breathe in the fume
You say the night is drawing nigher
So hold me close ’cause I’m on fire

F – I – R – E
Fire me up

Fire me up
Oh, I need it bad
Youth seems to trap me
I may be going mad
And what I want, you’ll give willingly
You’ll try your best but you won’t say no to me

You can’t miss what you haven’t known
Some things are better left alone
You say the night is drawing nigher
So hold me close ’cause I’m on fire

All things shall come to pass, I’m told
When the fire’s out, you feel the cold
All things shall come to pass, you say
But I want you now, I want you today
Track Name: Tobacco Vanilla
We hardly even spoke, you had no time to waste
Your pockets must be lined for you to have such taste
I bet that magic potion cost you your last dime
Wearing that cologne should be a wicked crime

You were gone so fast like a cloud of smoke
I didn’t even have a chance to take a toke
But even though you’re always oh-so far
I’d sniff you out easy, wherever you are because

Babe! All I have to cling to
Is that look in your eye when you had me to sing to
Oh babe, your scent of Tobacco Vanilla
And every last dollar you spent
Track Name: Bomb of Time
No pain, the gain, it had its way with you
Forgoing any reason why you shouldn’t
Why you wouldn’t need to

To find a shelter from the Bomb of Time
You need your youth to validate your rhyme

No pain, the gain, it had its way with you
Forgoing any reason why you shouldn’t
Why you wouldn’t need to
It’s a shelter from the time bomb in your head
It hides the silent scream of reason gnawing through instead

You kill to keep the colour of your hair
Your heart is bleached so pale ain’t nothin’ there

We get what we deserve when we go home
You’ll still be ash though you’re encased in chrome
Track Name: My Babe & Me
My babe and me, we reap the riches from the seeds we sow
And that’s a fact that, ooh, I bet you’d like to know
The who, the how, the when, the why, the where, the what’s for show
It’s all a mystery and, ooh, we like to keep it so

Stop telling me the things I already know
You say there’s something wrong with me
I say there’s something wrong for sure
A little rough, a little tough, ooh baby, in the name of love
That’s bound to happen when you’re out for blood

My babe and me, we live to eat the riches of the night
And that’s a fact, ooh, you know they’re just ripe
The sleazy way’s an easy play but, babe, it’s how you win
The game is rigged for us, to lose it – in the end it’s all the same
Track Name: So Long, Farewell
So long, farewell
I ain’t got the time to fall under your spell, farewell
Put another dime in the wishing well

You say that I’m missing out but that ain’t true
Blowing smoke don’t impress no one but you
Bite another line ’cause mine ain’t waiting for you
Won’t wait for you

So long, farewell
I ain’t got the time to fall under your spell, farewell
When is it ever gonna ring a bell, so long, farewell
Put another dime in the wishing well

Your something new is really only something old
Nothing but a hunk of wood covered in gold
You’re looking to buy someone who can’t be sold
I won’t be sold
Track Name: Smoke Me
Them sleepless nights, they beckon me to give them rest at last
A repeat customer I am, you get into my head so fast
Your voice, your words like cavalry they take me by assault
My rage is big enough to separate the sea from the salt

Smoke me faster Papa, I’m your deadly cigarette
I’m leaving this here plain to claim a crown I won’t regret
Now stick it to the man and stick the barrel to my head
Pull the trigger, shoot to kill and hit the target

If you come and get me in that big old corbillard
Just don’t expect me to lay down, I’m gonna fight you hard
And even if the moon were to turn blood red
I’ll still give my regards to Bloody Queen before I’m dead
Track Name: Bloody Queen
Say your prayer and let me go
Leave behind the people I know
Voice no more, my words you’ll be
Said your prayer and then you buried me

If God is love, then love is me
I died only by heaven’s decree
Hand that saves and hand that feeds
In the dark, I’m left to bleed

Down I’ll go where the fallen are
Sweet dreams, ashes in the fire
Smoke snuffed out that heavenly gleam
I’ll take my throne as the Bloody Queen

Bloody Queen is draped in red
Subjects fear until she’s fed
Came to take my soul, she said
God save the queen, the queen is dead

Oh, Bloody Queen, oh woe is me
You killed God when you buried me
Bloody Queen, oh can’t you see
That you killed God when you buried me
