about

Special thanks
(I can't believe I'm actually finally writing this)

Special thanks to my father, who helped ensure music was running through my veins from a young age, and not stopping me from my routine to "Something in Red" back when I was, what, 3?
Love you

Thank you to Jason, Ricky, Jacob, Megan, James Andrews, and everyone else who's been there to watch my career begin.
Thanks to Seth and Adam for all your love and support--you are both more than just a set of wheels.

Thank you to Garry and Jorrie for art, hairspray, make-up and love/support. Artistic banter will always hold my heart.

Thank you Uncle Dave and Auntie Cathy--you two have been like a second set of parents for me, always supportive and constantly showing interest in what I'm doing. I will try to make people feel as uncomfortable as I can in the future.

To all the assholes I've been with, thanks for the material.
To all the lovers I've enjoyed, thanks for the material.
(You all should know who you are. If not, I cannot help you.)

Thank you to you, for listening to/buying this piece of work I've worked so very hard on and I hope to only get better and attempt to shell out more infectious melodies as the years go by.

Finally, last but not least, thank you to my mother.
You are the ongoing spiritual presence in my life and I cannot stress enough the gratitude I feel towards you for giving me the foundation of my personality. This is for you. You are, and will always be, the supernova that ignites my life.

Track Name: Supernova
Could you--Could you help me
Fly higher?
This light is blinding, approaching quick
A cosmic scale eruption, it calls me
All I ever suffered, each heartache
I never dreamed they would trigger this
A sort of second coming
Just for me

(pre-chorus)
Never thought that I would open up my arms for
A supernova, a supernova
There ain't no amount of dreaming to prepare for
A supernova, a supernova

(chorus)
A supernova! A supernova!
You might be perfect now, our love is out of bounds
A supernova! A supernova!
Go on and make my night, shine like a satellite
It's not a cliche, I can't breathe when you're not with me
A supernova! A supernova!
Show me some mercy now, I'll let you take me down

Tear me limb-from-limb, push me to the brim
All these stars are dim, I could light them up
It's been too damn long, I feel I belong
For once, I feel strong, cause you light me up
Go on, go on, make me feel right, feel right
Go on, go on, make me feel bright, feel bright
Go on, go on, we could take the night, take the night
Go on, go on, make me feel right, feel right

(pre-chorus)
(chorus)

This is how it all began,
This is how it all began
This is how it all began
This is how a heart began (x2)

Everything I do
It has led me to you (x6)
(A supernova, livin' it up on broadway!
I was feeding the machine, tonight I'm gonna strip down right!)
Track Name: Broadway
Look up at the grayscale coloured sky
That bitch gonna win the famous life
Possessed by the will to ride up high
Castles in the east, I'll feel them right
Here's where the street becomes the life
Boys look like girls look like the boys
Here's where we can break away, and fly
Castles in the east, watch out

(pre-chorus)
Buy me, use me, throw me away
Buy me, use me, just let me fly away

(chorus)
Cause I'm a freak show, overload, ecstasy
I'm on stereo, covers of magazines
I'm on broadway, on broadway, on broadway, on broadway
Those flashing lights, those midnight signs
Those starstruck lies, those heartfelt tries
On broadway, on broadway, on broadway
And Imma turn your world upside down

Let's walk on a talking back roadside
Let's flock from the morals we defied
Let's swing on a dream, identified
Castles in the east got something right
Here's where the street becomes the life
Create a new stage from concrete slides
Here's where we can break away and fly
Castles in the east, watch out

(pre-chorus)
(chorus)

Imma give it up, Imma give it up (oh!)
Imma give it up for broadway (x4)

Broadway... (Look up at the grayscale coloured sky)
On broadway... (That bitch gonna win the famous life)
On broadway... (Possessed by the will to ride up high)
On broadway... (Castles in the east, watch out)

(chorus)
(pre-chorus)
Track Name: Robotics
If I could stand upon this hill
With no command, just for the thrill
I'd paint it red, take in the night
Take in the night to fight my fright
Can you feel me? Can you feel me?
Do you want me on my knees?
Deprive me of my ecstasy, music will be the death of me

(chorus)
I am a robot, and I know I'm glitching
I am a robot, walking imperfection
Can you feel me? Can you feel me?
Can you feel me? Do you want me as I am?
I am a robot, robot, robot

I'm sparking imperfection, 'cause I'm just a silly, noisy robot

You can't rewrite my programming
Those who have tried tell me I sting
I can't help if I'm damaging
This virus takes a hold of me
Can you feel me, can you feel me?
Do you like my struggling?
Go and clean out my battery
I won't shut up--I'm kinda crazy like that

(chorus)

Out with cyanide, I'm turning in before I die
I'll bathe in peroxide, it's making me feel so divine

(chorus)

Out with cyanide, I'm turning in before I die
I'll bathe in peroxide, it's making me feel so divine
Track Name: Wired
Gotta get my fix now, fix now
Ready for that hit now, hit now
I may throw a fit now, fit now
I hold my breath, and I'm on fire

Gotta get my fix now, fix now
Ready for that shit now, shit now
I may be a bitch now, bitch now
I'll hook it up and I'll be wired

(pre-chorus)
I gotta, gotta tell ya, I'm addicted
To the instant gratification network process
I gotta, gotta tell ya, I'm addicted
To the immediate satisfactory practice

(chorus)
I can see it breaking through my head
I can feel it flowing through my veins
I can hear it pumping through my heart beat
Of the generation
Of this revolution
I'm wired up (x6)

Itchin' for the burn now, burn now
Turning on the screen now, screen now
Dreaming a machine now, (-chine now)
I close my eyes and I'll feel higher

Fingers feeling locked now, locked now
I can't do anything now, thing now
A little too reliant and I, I think I may have set on fire

(pre-chorus)
(chorus)

The same story plays out day by day
I can't stop it
I'm an electronic, supersonic screenshot display
I can't fight it
Flip the button on, got my click-click ready
And I'm right-clicking, saving as 'wired', got it steady
Minimizing my sanity, I close the browser history
Gotta get me outta here, addictive personality
Maybe they'll scream, and I won't hear a thing,
Cause I'm wired up hard and I'm feeling like a king
So I'm etching on the off switch,
Clock is tick-ticking and I'm losing out on every doubt, it's imprisoning

(chorus)
Track Name: Strip
Said I wanna be a rockstar
"Gotta make it count hard," that's what they said
Baby, baby, babe
And I wanted to be famous
Thinking I'm a genius, so I'll strip it
Baby, baby, babe
I'll be your youthful toy, your perfect boy for you tonight
I'll bathe in formaldehyde for you tonight, I'll strip down right

(chorus)
Tonight, I'm gonna shed my pride
And tonight I'm gonna ride the tide
Cause tonight I'm gonna make you cry
When you take over my body
Tonight I'm gonna strip, strip, strip
Tonight I'm gonna strip, strip, strip
The starlight makes us come alive
And tonight I'm gonna strip down right

So I got my little rejects,
Calling them my projects
Go on, take it, baby, baby, babe
And I want all the experience,
Ready to get serious
So I'll strip it, baby, baby, babe

And I'mma turn you on
And I'mma turn you on
And I'mma turn you on,
And I'mma strip now
And I'mma turn you on
And I'mma turn you on
And I'mma turn you on tonight

(chorus)

Here I am
Distracting
Just waiting, just for you
Don't need love, don't need talk
Breathe on me, my heart beats (x2)

(chorus)

I'll be your youthful toy
Your perfect boy
I'll strip down right
Track Name: Legs
I like my legs in leather, I like my legs in lace
I like my legs in fishnets, I like 'em in your face
I like 'em when it's smoother, I like 'em when it's rough
They're not for the faint hearted, they're only for the tough

I go to all the parties, I'm drinking all the wine
I go out every friday, I'm having a good time
I like my legs in leather, I like my legs in lace
I like my legs in fishnets, I like 'em with the chase

My legs are my escape from this cold, harsh reality
What's yours? Tell me (x2)

I like my legs in leather, I like my legs in lace
I like when they're together, or spread out, point-in-case
I like 'em on your body
I like 'em on your soul
Missionary, sodomy, let's fuck and rock and roll

I like my legs in stockings, or nothing, so divine
I think your legs are sexy, but not compared to mine
I like my legs in leather, I like my legs in lace
I like when they're together, I like 'em with the chase

(chorus)
My legs are my escape from this cold, harsh reality
What's yours? Tell me
My legs are my escape from this cold, harsh reality
What's yours? Tell me
And I know it's trying to keep yourself from dying
My legs are my escape from this cold, harsh reality
What's yours? Tell me

I don't want you, I don't need you to tell me what I can and cannot be
And I know it's trying to keep yourself from dying
My legs are my safety net, my legs are my safety net

I like my legs in leather, I like my legs in lace
I like my legs in fishnets, I like 'em in your face

(chorus)

I don't want you, I don't need you to tell me what I can and cannot be
(x4)
Do you like my legs now?
Track Name: Vows
Do you feel the expression of my love, baby?
I'm feeling a little mixed up, honey
Are you ready for me now to have? To hold

Stars and planets might not align for us, baby
But for you, I would tear down heavy, honey
I'm ready for you now to have, to hold

Dearly beloved, we are gathered in here in the sight of music (x2)

(chorus)
I'll take my vows, vows, vows, vows
I'll take my vows, vows, vows, vows
I won't let you down, down, down, down
But I have my vows, vows, vows, vows (x2)

I could turn myself inside out for you, honey
Steal the crown of one thousand treasures, baby
But the music is calling me now to hold

Please don't get this wrong or mistaken me, darling
There is no one I'd rather hold here, baby
But the music is calling me now to share

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here in the sight of music

(chorus)

Do you feel the expression of my love, baby?
Do you feel the expression of my love, baby?

Don't get me wrong, honey, cause I love you so
But I want you to know
There is something in the stars that only I can reach (x2)

(chorus)

Do you feel the expression of my love, baby? (x4)
Track Name: FEED ME (The Machine)
You wanna play it? You wanna play me hard?
You wanna see it? You wanna see my scars
Try and move over, tonight I'm taking names
If you're not careful, then you'll end up in flames
You think I'm pretty, but not pretty enough
You think I'm easy, maybe I'll call your bluff
I think I'm liking, liking the way you taste
I think I'm liking, liking the way you play

(bridge)
Proceed with caution, proceed with caution, proceed with caution
I'm a hungry bitch (x2)

(chorus)
Feed me!
I wanna feed, I wanna feed on The Machine
Feed me!
I wanna feed, I wanna feed on The Machine!
Feed me!
Feed me!
Feed me!
Feed me!

My mind is racing, plotting away my life
We'll take it slow, now--I got a magic knife
I'll make you listen, persuade you with my tongue
That's what you want, yeah? Isn't my name enough?
I wanna see it--seeing my name in lights
Do you like that, babe? I'm setting up a price
Can you afford it? I'm kicking up these tricks
I'm just preparing for all these stones and sticks

(chorus)

(bridge)

We've got no imagination
We're the TV generation
And I won't get no satisfaction
Till I get some recognition

We got no imagination, TV generation, TV generation (x2)

(chorus)

Feed me, I'm a popstar
Love me, I'm an artist
Take me, I'm a rockstar
Fuck me, I'm famous
Track Name: Not A Hero
You've got your mind, you've got my art
I can't believe you stole my heart
Going on your way as the world falls down on me
You've run away, but I can smell
That sweet scent you wore so well
You let yourself become a stain in my sheets

Now I'm alone, I guess that's life
No one to phone late, late at night
Suddenly the room feels so, so empty
You've got your mind, you've got my art
I can't believe you took my heart
Going on your way as the world falls down on me

And I, oh, I can't help
But be tempted when you walk by
It gets me thinking

(chorus)
Maybe I am not a hero,
But that doesn't stop me from trying
I could sit and cry all night
You won't let me catch you falling
Maybe I am not a hero,
But that doesn't stop me from flying
I could sit and cry all night
But I gotta keep from falling

You've got your mind, you've got my art
I can't believe you took my heart
Pushed me down and slammed my face in the concrete
I can't believe I ever felt
That you could be like someone else
Going on your way as the world falls down on me

(chorus)

Down
And I can't help but be tempted when you walk by
It gets me thinking

Sometimes I wish that I was dreaming
And I close my eyes to get back to the beginning
Cause, dad, I don't want to hear that everything will be okay
Friends, I don't give a damn about what you may have to say
Cause I'm still hurting, I'm still learning
How to function day by day
I don't want to start over, I just want to go back

(chorus)

Down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down, down...(x2)
Track Name: Built For You
It seems like everything has changed
The vacancies of the world grow smaller
I was stupid to think it'd stay the same
Back when I was naive

I could build a house on bruises
But you strapped me back
And made me feel like royalty
Though this life's not what I asked for
How could I care?
When the winding road has brought me here

(chorus)
Suddenly, I see the plot line
I was built for you
Through all the pain, the stars align
I was built for you

Guilty for lacking the patience
But pardoned for all the crime
I used to try but I would falter
Just to buy myself just a little more time

And I was known for granting wishes
They tore me down, they spit me up
And crushed me like a paper cup
But all those dreams I tucked away
They began to thrive, I came to life
You saved me from my toxic strife

(chorus)

All my toils, and all my fears
No longer pose any danger or tears
For once I feel human
I feel warmth, in my blood, like a human
A human

(chorus)
