Track Name: Get a Grip
One of these days I’m gonna go out of my mind
unless I can call the shots
You’re in my way, you’re in my face
Step back you’re out of place

How can I do this?
I don’t know!
How did I get here?
I don’t know!
When did it go wrong?
I don’t know!
Well get a grip!

Get a grip!
Well get a grip!
Get a grip!

When reality comes creepin in, and you find yourself alone
Well your shadow don’t need to be impressed
Oh someone stole your soul

How can I do this?
I don’t know!
How did I get here?
I don’t know!
When did it go wrong?
I don’t know!
Well get a grip!

Get a grip!
Well get a grip!
Get a grip!

You forgot what I said, I don’t need you
I don’t need to hear what you have to say
I don’t need to hear what you have to say
I don’t need to hear what you have to say
I don’t need to hear what you have to say
I don’t need to hear it, I don’t need to hear it!
I don’t need to hear it, all I need is for you
To get a grip!

Get a grip!
Well get a grip!
Get a grip!

Track Name: House of Love
You raise your hands,
in constant anger
And I feel the same
All day, and I know
In this house of love

So come with me,
and feel disabled
I feel the same,
and out there on a rowboat
(I know)
In this house of love

Won’t you come in
(right now)
Won’t you come in
(right now)
Won’t you come in
(right now)
To this house of love

So come with me,
and come disabled
And breathe and breathe
And then you gasp, and I know
(and I know)
In this house of love

Won’t you come in
(right now)
Won’t you come in
(right now)
Won’t you come in
(right now)
Won’t you come in
(right now)
To this house of love
Track Name: Love Song Dependency
Oh it was nothing,
to feel like a man
To pick you up and,
put you down with these hands
Oh it was lovely,
to be up a score
But you don’t need this man,
alive anymore
Sobering up now,
it’s easy to do
Go to sleep with a cocaine high,
and wake up with the flu
I can’t manipulate,
your mind anymore
Well I can make you feel,
like a sweet little whore

But wait,
(But wait)
I know,
(I know)
I love my little baby
I love her even more
Inside,
(Inside)
Don’t you ever leave me alone in this fire

I wanna hurt you,
when you succeed
I wanna make you feel,
like you need
To cut up and down,
on your skin some more
Well you fucked up this time,
my baby bore
So don’t you worry,
i’ll be here for you
Dependency has got me,
holdin like glue
And every time you run away i’ll be,
at the door
Holdin out these arms,
for my sweet little whore

But wait,
(But wait)
I know,
(I know)
I love my little baby
I love her even more
Inside,
(Inside)
Don’t you ever leave me alone in this fire
Track Name: Daughter
She’s comin away from me,
once again
She’s goin away from me
But then,
I knew she was somebody’s lover
I knew she was somebody’s daughter

Yes I know, I know, she was somebody’s daughter
When I lay her down in that cold, cold water
Yes I know, I know, she was somebody’s daughter
When I lay her down in that cold, cold water

She’s comin away from me,
once again
She’s goin away from me
But then,
I knew she was somebody’s lover
I knew she was somebody’s daughter

Yes I know, I know, she was somebody’s daughter
When I lay her down in that cold, cold water
Yes I know, I know, she was somebody’s daughter
When I lay her down in that cold, cold water

When I lay her down in that cold, cold water
Yes I know, I know, she was somebody’s daughter
When I lay her down in that cold, cold water
Track Name: It's Reaction!
Been awake for a while now
Can’t get to sleep
Why’s my world spinning?
Am I in too deep?

Gotta light myself up one
Gotta go downtown
Feel like I don’t belong here
These days are dragging me down

Gotta go for a while, now
Now I know
Know how to get it all wrong
Ain’t wrong or right
Write my lies to calm down
Down we go
Go back to what we know now

And if I do it all right
Right to left
Left you out in the cold
So cold to me
Well me and you are just fine now
Fine for now
Now you don’t even know

Wish I could change how I was!
Wish I could try it again!
(It’s reaction!)
But I don’t know how to act right!
I blame it on where I been!

(It’s reaction!)
And if you wanna help me, well baby,
just show me how!
(It’s reaction!)
But for now I’ll just suffer!
Feelin my heart shut, shut down!
(It’s reaction!)

Reaction!
(It’s reaction!)
Reaction!
(It’s reaction!)
Reaction!
(It’s reaction!)
Reaction!
(It’s reaction!)
