Track Name: Baby D - Not Your Fantasy
NOT YOUR FANTASY

I’m not your baby, don’t call me your girl
I’m not anything that you’ve seen before
And i’m not your sweetheart
I’m not your fucking toy
Boy I’m not your girl and girl i’m not your boi
And i’m not your fantasy
So don’t even try

Don’t think it’s complimentary
Don't think it’s cute or nice
To box up my whole world into some stereotype
Cuz you don’t know the half of it
And you don’t know my life
Just cuz you saw it on the tv
Doesn’t mean that it’s real life
Cuz i’m not you fantasy
So don’t even try

So why can’t you look me in the eye?
Where is your dignity your pride?
Why can’t you look me in the eye?
Where is your dignity?
Where’s your pride?

Well I hate to break the news, to you boy
But i’m not your, fucking toy, no!
1,2,3,4
Get the fuck out!
Track Name: Baby D - No
NO

I lay on my back, and watch the sky
Turn from red to blue to black
You never ask why, what’s on my mind
I’m sure you do this all the time

I guess I’m yours for the taking
You lay your hands on me and i’m shaking
And if you think that’s love then you’re mistaken
I guess i’m yours for the the taking

And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!

Head to the house down the road
Into the basement where no one will know
Tell me I’m an old soul
And you’re a wise man so you should know
Yeah you should know.

I guess I’m yours for the taking
You lay your hands on me and i’m shaking
And if you think that’s love then you’re mistaken
I guess i’m yours for the the taking

And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no
And I can’t say no

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no!
Track Name: Baby D - Lonesome
LONESOME

Stop catch your breath
You’re miles away, and you’re lonely
Are you lying there, with thoughts of me
Or are you playing?
With all the boys out there?
With all the girls that stare?
With all the boys out there?
With all the girls that stare?

Cuz you could blame it on your lonesome
You could blame it on your lonesome
You could blame it on your lonesome
You could blame it on your lonesome

Stop catch my breath
I’m right here, and i’m shaken
By my thoughts that tempt me tonight
I could be playing
With all the girls ‘round here
Like that one over there
With all the girls ‘round here
Like that one over there

And I could blame it on my lonesome
I could blame it on my lonesome
I could blame it on my lonesome
I could blame it on my lonesome

And if you do I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry

And if you do I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry
And if you do I won’t cry, I won’t cry, I won’t cry
Track Name: Baby D - Hey Mister
HEY MISTER

Got high and stumbled my way home again
Went out, tried to calm down
My body it don’t lie
When things they just ain’t right
I got an aching in my bones

I said hey big mister!
Come down here!
And light another candle for another year
Hey big mister give me one more before I die

Hey there mister let me catch my breath
Hey big mister let me catch my breath, uhhuh

I like to think, I got it made
No regrets or circumstances that I would change
I’ve got it all but it’s still never enough
I’m drowning my contentment in a half empty cup

I read a book it said it’s all in how you look at it
So I ripped out the page, and I made a kaleidoscope
Now the ceiling is dancing, and the tables have turned
My inside’s going out and my outside is a blur

And it hurts like hell
But no one can tell
Said the little conversations I had with myself
And I’m sick with doubt
But i’m just laughing all about it
And the little conversations I had with myself

I said hey big mister let me catch my breath
I’ll be good I promise you, I will do my best
Hey big mister let me catch my breath, aha

I said hey big mister let me catch my breath
I’ll be good I promise you, I will do my best
Aha, aha, aha, aha, aha

Ahhhhhhhhhuhhhhuhhuuuuuuuuhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhuhhhhuhhuuuuuuuuhhhhh
Track Name: Baby D - Atlas
ATLAS

Cuz I was born this way
With pain etched into me
Don’t know who or why or what to blame

Yeah I came in this way
It’s always been the same
Don’t know who or why or what to blame

And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why

I collapse onto the couch
Shut the sunlight out
Feel the world coming on so strong today

Clear my head it’s full of doubts
Why are all these people out and about?
Feel the world coming on so strong today

And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why
And I don’t know why

Sometimes I feel like Atlas standing on the hill
With the weight of the world on my back
I can’t stand to stand still
I know my Hercules ain’t coming for me
No, no time soon
And if he took the weight from off of me
The loss would just hurt too.

But i’m fine, even if it’s heavy i’m fine
I’m fine, and even if it’s heavy i’m fine
I’m fine, and even if it’s heavy i’m fine
I’m fine, i’m fine, i’m fine
I’m fine, and even if it’s heavy i’m fine
I’m fine, and even if it’s heavy i’m fine
I’m fine, i’m fine, i’m fine, i’m fine
I’m fine, i’m fine, i’m fine, even if it’s heavy i’m fine.
Track Name: Pale Norse - Warrior Strut
Warrior Strut

I’m a Castaway, in this sea of love
With an anchored heart girl, sad and giving up
Like a Castaway, drinking turtle blood
Barely holding on, to your diving love

I’m a Warrior, with an axe to grind
Pumping vinegar girl, through this useless mind
And like a Warrior, you know I may get cut
Bleeding turtle blood, Warrior I Strut
Lets Strut

Like a Castaway lost at sea in love
With an anchored heart sad and giving up
Like a Castaway drinking turtle blood
Barely holding on to this dive’n love
I’m a Warrior with an axe to grind
Pumping vinegar through his useless mind
Like a Warrior knows he may get cut
Drinking turtle blood warrior he STRUT!
Track Name: Pale Norse - Friend That's Red
Friend That is Red

You Talk of freedom, Electric Chair
You want this price but, it is not fair
You do not under….Stand these people
They want their freedom, you just don’t care
You speak of indians, these indian people
They lose their homes and they didn’t care
The hell they didn’t, you walked them to death
And then you just sat and watched and stared

And you know your friend
Yeah well he is dead
Called him your good friend that’s red and dead yeah
Yeah cause he is dead

You talk of Bob Wolf, Grey haired man Bob Wolf
You love that Bob Wolf, he just don’t care
You go different way, that’s fine by me but
If you’re so happy, why do you say?
Bob Wolf is happy, Grandchildrens Lovely

You do not under, stand with these people
You want to kill them you just don’t care

And you know your friend

Called him your good friend that’s red and dead yeah

Track Name: Pale Norse - Girl
Girl

Take my hand now you little girl
Take my hand and let’s fuck this world
They don’t know just what they did
No they don’t know the half of it
Well it was love that took the life from this little girl
And it was mine that took her heart from the whole damn world
Take this pill now just go to sleep
Draw a bath and think of petty things
Lay your head down and crawl right in
If it’s love then it’s not a sin
Well it was love that took the life from that little girl
And it was mine that took her heart from the whole damn world
And it was love that took the life from that little girl
And it was mine that took her life from this whole damn world

And all the love in all the world
Couldn’t take the life of that pretty girl
And all the love in all the world
I took the life
I took the life
I took the life of this pretty girl
Track Name: Pale Norse - Puppy Kisses
Puppy Kisses

You know they fill you up when you die
But I never want to be quite that high
But you dip it you leave it, then you dry
Those the Puppy Kisses and Formaldehyde
And you know I want to be these things
Like the living prophets and philosophy
But you can’t love it, No don’t lie
It’s the only way that you’ll ever be high

Well alright
This Puppy she gave me a kiss
And I knew I had felt well nothing like this
And if that puppy should make me want to smile
Then you know you dipped it in formaldehyde

Well it’s one down in due time
And it’s number two and then your fryed
Well than it’s kiss it and love it and make it love
Ah the puppy kisses and formaldehyde
And you know i want to see these things
Like the living prophets and philosophy
But you can’t huff it, no don’t lie
It’s the only way that you’ll ever be high

Well Alright

And you knew that i had felt well nothing just like this
And if that puppy should make me smile
Then you know you dipped it in formaldehyde
