Track Name: Speechless
speechless

cat got my tongue
i don't want it back
been cut
i can still taste the blood
been nothin but trouble

but i like it here
so quiet
and nothing is broken

cat got my tongue
and i dont want it back
keep it
for when you cannot sleep
brought down by the lonely

cause i like it here
its so quiet and open

cat got my tongue
but i dont want it back
keep it
(like a badge)
to bury in your honor


and i won't say a word
and you don't have to thank me
and i won't say a word
and i won't say a word

Track Name: Good Girl
The good girl by moosejaw muldoon

Be a good girl
leave your hair down
put your dress on
pluck your eyebrows

Be a good girl
cast your eyes down
hold yourself still
don't make a sound

Be a good girl
Be a good girl
Be a good girl

Be a good girl
serve(pray) so devout
keep your legs crossed
wash your mouth out

Be a good girl
sew your lips closed
paste a smile on
take off your clothes

Be a good girl
Be a good girl
Be a good girl

Be a good girl
learn to agree
Dumb your thoughts down
limit your dreams

Be a good girl
(magazine rant)
A good wife always knows her place...

Track Name: Space
Space

i take up space she said
everywhere i go
i know how to put on a show

though what they see
they must believe
its not my intention to deceive


they think that theyve seen
all there is of me
they think they've seen my internal workings

I take up space she said
everywhere i go
i know how to put on a show

and what they see
may be the best of me
and what they see
may bring them yearning

i take up space she said
everywhere i go
i know how to put on a show

Track Name: Bella's Lament
Bella's lament


I welcome summer
with covered legs
and open arms
beneath my blouse
there will be waxing
there will be waning
two weeks of shaving
'fore I go out

oh my god,
why do you hate me?
Exfoliate me
just like a model
oh lord make me
a chinese crested
blonde hair and breasts and
a hairless body

my poor mother
i know she's dreading
my sister's wedding
cause i m in it now
she'll have my sister
sit on my chest and
she'll do her best to
tweeze my eyebrows

oh my god,
why do you hate me?
Exfoliate me
just like a model
oh lord make me
a chinese crested
blonde hair and breasts and
a hairless body

i can't understand
why a rich ad man
says im not feminine
just because i
cover my breasts and
i don't wear dresses and
have more hair then him

oh my god,
why do you hate me?
Exfoliate me
just like a model
oh lord make me
a chinese crested
blonde hair and breasts and
a hairless body

oh my god,
why do you hate me?
Exfoliate me
just like a model
oh lord make me
a chinese crested
blonde hair and breasts and
a hairless body

Track Name: Half a Heart
half a heart by moosejaw muldoon

I'm gonna need both these arms
to play this guitar
gonna need our hands too
guess that's tough shit for you

you can have the legs
I use a chair anyway
you realize that means
you get the bum knees and arthritis pain

but im keeping my ass
I worked way too hard for that
you get the belly and back
yours was always so flat

but what about all our friends?
what about all their love?
what about the expensive housewarming presents?
what about all that stuff?

what about all the furniture,
the houseplants and the dog?
what about the dirty pictures we took of each other
on nights so long ago?

go get the measuring tape
we've got a heart here to break
we'll try for two equal halves
but you always had more of that

all the rest that is paired
I say it's only fair
split them all up in two
one for me, one for you

we spent so long as one
I don't know how to walk away
and its not just cause you got the legs
I don't remember how to breathe on my own

so I sit here in this chair
just an ass with arms and hands
now I don't have any friends
and only half a heart

now I don't have any friends,
and only half a heart
I'm on my own, living alone,
with only half a heart
