except 9 (co-written with G. Crowe) - 15 by Muir/Muller

1. Insult and Battery

Oh, I’ve got a mouth like a shotgun
And every time it goes off
You get blown off
Plug another whole in the story
Fill in the gaps
No matter how gory 

You’re just another casualty
Of insult and battery 

Throwing blind punches from the sidelines
Swinging for the head
When I’m aiming for the headlines
Does it really matter if I lie?
When you can’t call it the truth
Till it’s read in black and white 

Just another shot to the head
From a snot-nosed grrrrrrl who thinks she knows best
Cause I’m just a bully with a penknife
Who carves out the facts when I can’t get it right!

2. Fool on Impact

Tell me the truth, it’s your hatred that moves and inspires
Like a pistol that’s ready to fire
Searching for one moving target
Hold the receiver and bring down the weight of the hammer
That’ll cut through the gold and the glamour
Like a sniper who loves to remark on it 

It’s everyone; it’s everything
I'd tell you twice but you’re not listening
It’s like they’re coming out to get you
To be another fool on impact 

Turn in your loved ones
Inform on your slightest acquaintance
Expose those who don’t know the difference
Or of how much you hated the victim 
After the shooting, they’ll send in someone from ballistics
Who’ll take down the vital statistics
Just to measure which angle you hit him from

Squint through the sight
Pull on the trigger
And though it’s not right
It makes you feel bigger
 

Tell me the truth, it’s your hatred that moves and inspires
Like a General who’s semi-retired
Still praying for exciting adventure

3. Out

All the boys have bigger plans
Teasing you without their knowing
That's about all you can stand

The undertaste is poison
And you fear all of their venom
Because you've seen them eat their young

Lay your burden down beside me
Close you eyes, don't make a sound
Put to bed all of your worries
Once was lost now you are found

Have you ever learned your lesson
Confusing tricks with something more
Wait till they get you in confession

You're floating out so aimless
Your target is a blur
You want to tell somebody
You want to let it out

Out

4. This Town's Unbearable

Cop out or just a copycat
Now do you copy that
All of the pain you are receiving
Falsehood’s just a cover up
You have to make up
But even that is deceiving

She said she’s had enough
She said she’s getting out
This town’s unbearable

Broke down when you summed it up
You spilled it from the cup
Onto the dress she was wearing
Stand up but it was all pretend
How could you condescend
When everybody was staring

She said she’s had enough
This town’s unbearable

Oh when you were holding hands
You said you’d understand
You said you’d never let her go
But you found somebody else
A promise to yourself
That you would never let her now

6. Pull it All Apart

The deal has gone bad
You’re counting up their bruises
You played it out of turn
And now they’re out of hand

Time won’t heal your memory
You were so hard to remember
But now I cannot forget you

Cause you don’t have the courage
You don’t have the heart
You don’t have the brains
To pull it all apart
And put it back together again

How do you sleep?
What is it you’re scared of?
The verdict that’s reached
Or the words that no one speaks

Time will never set you free
You were so hard to find guilty
But now I cannot forgive you   

7. Party of One

Please don’t tell me that now it’s over
Please don’t tell me that you don’t care
Tossed aside like a three-leaf clover
Please don’t tell me that it’s not fair

Somewhere somehow there’s someone feeling
The way I feel when you left me here
Though I don’t know who’s hurt I’m stealing
It’s theft that comforts and brings them near

Let’s get the party started     (It don’t matter where you are) 

Crowds of lonely hearts sulk and gather
Without their knowing of what they share
Each encases a heart that’s shattered
Each a bruise from the one they care 

Now you’re sending your one and only
To someplace bitter that’s full of shame
A uniform for the rank of lonely
An army of those who feel the same

8. Come On, Bring it Home

For the call that was never made / Come on, bring it home
For the ones you could never save
/ Come on, bring it home
All the girls on the second floor
/ Come on, bring it home
All the boys on the first want more
/ Come on, bring it home

Come on, bring it home
You faithless and deserted
The wine is pouring out for those to be converted 

Those who run and still get caught / Come on, bring it home
By the ones who enjoy their lot
/ Come on, bring it home
All the escorts on the hit parade
/ Come on, bring it home
Who missed the curfew when it’s too late
/ Come on, bring it home

The victims and their valentines / Come on, bring it home
All alone in the waiting lines
/ Come on, bring it home
Every motherless child might pray
/ Come on, bring it home
What’s the point if there’s none to save
/ Come on, bring it home

9. Fashion Victim

She’s one more fashion victim who’s fastened to the ball
She gives it everything though they don’t want it at all
The box is playing songs that she can’t recognize
She dances all alone
, they can’t believe their eyes

Calling her their dirty names
They whisper loud enough she feels ashamed

Underneath the stars
Can they be all that far?
She wonders who they are

The conversation turns to subjects close to home
The clothes she’s wearing or the smell of her cologne
Their disapproval flashes from their sharp white teeth
They’re pulling faces from the ones that lie beneath

Bruises from their cruel punch lines
When they’re dropping names she falls behind

She smells the plastic flowers
She spills her drink (onto her dress)
She holds her breath for an hour
She’s not dead
But it feels that way

She’s just a fashion victim who’s fastened to the ball
They’re almost done with her, they’ll nail her to the wall
So when the party’s over they show her to the door
Though everybody’s left, she wants to stay for more

A change of heart, a change of plans
She’ll take on all that she can stand (and she can)

10. Sooner or Later

You don’t see me,
Close my eyes imagine we’re not apart
You cant’ hear me,
When I whisper your name in the dark

Sooner or later it’s gonna be you and me

I’ll just bide my time
The night passes slowly overhead
Until the day comes
I’ll be counting every second and

Sooner or later it’s gonna be you and me

Ever after
As I promised you right off the mark
It’s not ending
Worlds collide into a brand new start

11. Shipwrecked Heart

(...it's not going to change anything...)

All aboard, you seasick hearts
Falling down to falling apart
Can you hear me?

Those who drift and those who drown
The ones so blind, they run aground
Can you hear me?

I’ve been lost at sea
And I’m never going back
Deep beneath the waves
The promises unmade
Are the ones you cannot break

All aboard you shipwrecked hearts
From throwing kisses to throwing darts
Can you hear me?

13. Interruptions

Hurry

14. Top 5

Benzedrine kicking in or is it sugar
Shivering from the sweetness of the hit
Suck it back cause your friends have got it bad
Boys hooked on Ritalin, girls stuck on getting thin
They think they’re fat but then they don’t know why
Who the hell is picking all the songs that kids are singing? 

Freaking out cause it‘s your hand that they are biting
Turn it down, turn it up or turn over
Too late now cause they’ve got you by the hook
Force fed toilet trained, they plant it in your brain
You’ve cut it open but it won’t come out
Who the hell is picking all the songs that kids are singing?

The doctor is gonna pull the plug
The nurse said that you had zero luck
The DJ is sorry you won’t survive
To hear him spin the next Top 5

Pour it on till everybody’s had their fill
Push it through cause we’re falling off to sleep
We’ll take them on until they’ve swallowed their own pills
Not by coincidence they lost the evidence
They bribed the jury and the judge as well
Who the hell is picking all the songs that kids are singing?

15. Tachée

Moi, je suis née dans une fausse ville
Je suis née dans une pauvre ville
Je suis née sans yeux

Toi, t’as âgée au bon moment
Toujours prêt pour le moment
T’étais née sans mains

S’ils vous donnent une grosse somme
Pour perpétuer l’addiction
Laisse faire votre dose

Moi, dis mois les possibilités
Et j’te dirai qu’c’est okay
Je suis pleine de rien

Toi, tu manges toujours tes sentiments
J’adore toujours les sentiments
Je suis pleine de rien

Une fois, j’étais pleine de rien
Mais maintenant, j’ai faim
De toi

Moi, je m’ennui de toi
Toujours les pensées faites en soie
La tache est permanente

Moi, je suis née dans une fausse ville
Je suis née dans une pauvre ville
Je suis née sans liens

Toi, t’as âgée au bon moment
Toujours prêt pour le moment
T’étais née sans mains

Moi, je m’ennui de toi
Toujours les pensées faites en soit
La tache est permanente

Toi tu mange les sentiments
J’adore tes sentiments
Je suis pleine de rien

Moi je m’ennui de toi
Toujours les pensées faites de soie

16. Never Let You Down

Jump back
And clear away from this wreckage, Darling
'Cause nobody's coming out alive

What's that?
You say you can't take another scarring...
As if there's a question you'll survive!

I knew right from the start
Each plays their pain by heart
You're falling for someone else
When you hit the ground
Will you still remember

I
never let you down

Alright,
Somewhere deep in your blackened heart
There’s something that you will not confess

Wake up,
It weighs so much that you can’t get started
As if the whole world sits on your chest

Everyone thinks it’s hard
Passing it off as art
But now you believe it’s true
When you hit the ground will you still remember
?

I never let you down

17. Greatest Hits

(Schätzchen)

I love you so
So much I don’t know how
If I will ever…

I give you all my greatest hits
Follow these tracks as proof of this
Strung out on you and no one else 

The purest of love in concentrate
Acidic and sweet on my tongue to taste
Burning my mouth so I can’t speak

Where are the words I once would use
Folded up tight beneath the fuse
Or set to go off when you would choose

Here inside out for you to see
Open to all you want me to be
But still holding back what I can’t confess

Again and again I repeat your name
Digs deeper each time though it sounds the same
Bury my heart if it won’t take

I’m scared to death to take another fall
The crack in the mirror will tell it all
Am I good enough?

I’m screaming inside, I can’t let go
So hear me whisper
So you will know

I’m strung out on you and no one else
