Track Name: The Process
You're not an interior decorator who's working on my soul.
Can you just check that all of these supporting beams are strong?
You're working on just the structural;
I'm not looking for you to buy the drapes.
So please don't recommend any cousin to fix my fuse box, hotshot.
My fuse box doesn't want to change.
I don't need an upgrade.
I don't want to be remade by you.
It's true I'm a little lost, but I'm not a lost cause.
And I will find my way, so don't help me.
Don't help me. Don't help me.
Don't.

If you know I don't know who I am.
If you know I don't know.
If you know I don't know who I am; why are you asking?
Why are you asking? Why are you asking?
Don't touch me, you know I'll be fine.
But if you hug me, I know I will cry.
Even I can bear the battle with a broken shield and sad, old armor.
Once was shiny; now it's dull and grimy.
Oh, I will find another sword.
You don't need to give me yours, general.
It's time to go.
It's time to go.

You know I'm not on holiday at the ballet believing I can't dance,
because someday I know that I'll do hip-hop or jazz.
Now in my darkest moments it's hard to see into the future like that.
But deep in side I know that the process isn't as bad as doing something I never really liked in a reasonable life.
With a job, kids, husband, or wife.
It's true I will make it there.
But right now I'm not scared to live like I don't care.
So don't despair.
Don't despair.
I might get there.
I might.

If you know I don't know who I am.
If you know I don't know.
If you know I don't know who I am; why are you asking?
Why are you asking? Why are you asking?
Don't touch me, you know I'll be fine.
But if you hug me, I know I will cry.
Even I can bear the battle with a broken shield and sad, old armor.
Once was shiny; now it's dull and grimy.
Oh, I will find another sword.
You don't need to give me yours, general.
It's time to go.
It's time to go.
It's time to go.
It's time to go.
Track Name: Fine
No lie. So Fine.
Don't know what to do.
Boy I must find out how you can move.
'Cause your hips don't lie,
and the force, jedi, that you utilize is making me new tonight.
So if you want to see this new part of me,
come and take a ride here on the dark side. My, my, my, my.

Don't you want to see a different side of me?

Boy you got fine written all over you.
What's a girl supposed to do
to keep her eyes off your behind the whole night through?
You got fine written all over you,
and now it is your time to choose to pay the fee,
or let me take you in to custody, so you can start loving me.

I ain't got no tears, no fears.
Don't you wanna sit down right here
so I can make you howl like a wolf tonight.
Don't you want to just try it out?
Get a little caramel in your mouth.
It's the sweet that all your teeth will want. I'm not just talkin' 'bout the sweetest one, like oooooo.
Take a shot at this. Come give me a kiss.
Oooo, you got a wrong to write up on me tonight.
So fine, so fine. I need to make you mine.
Mine mine mine mine.

I'll make you understand how to feel like a man.

Boy you got fine written all over you.
What's a girl supposed to do
to keep her eyes off your behind the whole night through?
You got fine written all over you,
and now it is your time to choose to pay the fee,
or let me take you in to custody, so you can start loving me.

So fine, so fine, so fine. I need to make you mine.
So fine, so fine, so fine. I need to make you mine.
So fine, so fine, so fine. So fine, so fine, so fine.

Baby you're beautiful, but I think that you need to see
that a lady should love you. So why can't that lady be me?
Track Name: The Work
Feels like I’m working always. Like my body’s hurting always.
Like my mind is working sideways off caffeine, the dream, and heartache.
There is no lullaby. No time to say goodnight. I fell asleep at my desk.
Somehow, I’m always sick; and now, on top of it I can’t remember the last time I saw you.
I can’t remember.

What do you do when your life’s in the way of your life?
What do you do when your life’s in the way of your life?
What do you do, what do you do, what do you do?
What do you do, what do you do, what do you do?

Feels like I’m always moving. Like I’m always choosing
to take care of myself or risk losing all the things that I need to keep doing.
There is no magic pill, there is no greater will that I can just whip out and use.
I am all out of gas. And now, on top of that I can’t remember the last time I saw you.
I can’t remember.

What do you do when your life’s in the way of your life?
What do you do when your life’s in the way of your life?
What do you do, what do you do, what do you do?
What do you do, what do you do, what do you do?

I’m working all of the time.
Am I wasting my whole life?

What do I do, what do I do, what do I do?
What do I do, what do I do, what do I do?
What do I do, what do I do, what do I do?
What do I do, what do I do, what do I do?

I’ll just keep working and hope that it’s working.
I’ll just keep working.
And hope that it’s working.
