Track Name: Come Spy With Me (featuring Little Steven, Debbie Harry, John Carlucci)
No one knows we’re watching And you think we don’t see
But I’ll mind your business And do it secretly
Surveillance pictures And telephone calls
Your paper trail is the holy grail for blackmail (yeah yeah yeah!)

Instamatic flash-cubes Are stealing the scene
Showing tiny details And everything in between
Collecting footage And your fingerprints
I’m the detective, you’re the suspected, right now (yeah yeah yeah!)

Come spy with me now baby
You never know what you’ll see
Step inside the mystery baby
And take a trip with me

Exaggerate the details Blame anyone else
Say it with conviction And believe it yourself
Conflicting stories Don’t know what to believe
He said she said, she said he said right now (yeah yeah yeah!)

Come spy with me now baby
Never know what you’ll find
Step inside the mystery baby
It’s gonna blow your mind

Below the surface
They’re all watching you
Clocks are ticking, fuses flicking right now (yeah yeah yeah!)

Come spy with me now baby
You never know what you’ll see
Step inside the mystery baby
And take a trip with me

Come spy with me now baby
Never know what you’ll find
Step inside the mystery baby
It’s gonna blow your mind

Come spy with me now baby
Gonna play private eye
Step inside the mystery baby
And you’ll find out why
Track Name: Happy Birthday Middle Child (featuring Debbie Harry)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIDDLE CHILD  (featuring Debbie Harry)
(Palmyra Delran)

There’s someone who came first you must live up to
The oldest and the wisest so they say
You’re in their shadow and you’ll do whatever they want you to
Their wish is your command and you obey

The baby who came later can do no wrong
They’re well aware they’re pampered and adored
You roll your eyes, you pass them by, you will not play along
To you it’s someone younger you ignore

Happy Birthday middle child
You’re not forgotten like you think you are
Today you get attention
You’re the star

They say that you’re the one who causes trouble
But where are all these stories coming from
Your life is not so easy cuz you’re misunderstood
But you never let us know who you’ve become

Happy Birthday middle child
Not forgotten like you think you are
Today’s your special day    
Yeah you’re the star

On your own is where you wanna be
The world is what you make it but they don’t see
Some say you’re lost and don’t fit in society
But old souls and dreamers live for free

Happy Birthday middle child                                        
You’re not forgotten like you think you are                   
Today you get attention                                                
You’re the star

Happy Birthday Middle Child  
You’re not forgotten like you think you are
Today’s your lucky day  
You’re the star    
Yeah you’re the star - Yeah Superstar!
Track Name: Tape A Nickel To The Tonearm (featuring Ben Vaughn, Peter Zaremba, Mike Edison)
TAPE A NICKEL TO THE TONEARM  
(featuring Ben Vaughn, Peter Zaremba, Mike Edison)
(Ben Vaughn)

Tape a nickel to the tonearm baby
Tape a nickel to the tonearm baby
It might skip a little bit
But it sure drives me crazy

Play that one about the monkey just one more time
Play that one about the monkey just one more time
I can’t understand a word
But it sure makes me feel so fine

Ahhhh stack ‘em up
One on top of the other
And let ‘em drop
Don’t stop - let’s rock!

Ahhh here we go again
Let’s flip these records over
And check out the B – side
There’s always something cool on the B-side
Mmmmm… so nice
Let’s play it twice!

Tape a nickel to the tonearm baby
Tape a nickel to the tonearm baby
It might skip a little bit
But it sure drives me crazy
It might skip a little bit
But it sure drives me crazy
Track Name: I'm Satisfied (featuring Genya Ravan)
I’M SATISFIED
(Nickey Barclay) - Fanny cover
(featuring Genya Ravan)

I’d like to take your hand                          
You’re a kind & gracious man
And you’d be any mother's pride

Yesterday I found a way to get high
I’m satisfied
Feels so good I think it should not be denied
I’m satisfied

I can hardly take it
And I want to make it
When I take your hand in mine

I won’t get up til you stop this rising tide
I’m satisfied

(Ahhhhh…..)

I’d like to take your hand
You’re a kind & gracious man
And you’d be any mother's pride

And I want you to stay so deep inside
I’m satisfied
I’m satisfied
Track Name: (If You'd Like To Make A Call) Please Hang Up (featuring Paul Collins)
(If You’d Like To Make A Call) Please Hang Up   (featuring Paul Collins)
(Palmyra Delran)
  
If you’d like to make a call - please hang up
Cuz I don’t wanna talk at all  - please hang up
We’ve done too much talkin’
But we don’t hear
Said too much already
But I’m not here
And you’re not there
If you’d like to make a call - please hang up
But you don’t have the self control  - please hang up
Why don’t you say the things
That I wanna hear
Deep inside we know it
But can’t admit
That we don’t fit


Then the phone rings
And I don’t know how I feel
I think of all the things
That once felt so real
When all was fine
I hope it’s you on the line
So you’d like to make a call - please hang up
Cuz I don’t wanna talk at all - please hang up
Ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-da
Ba-ba-da-ba-ba-ba-da-da
Track Name: Walk Away (featuring Kim Shattuck, Matt Clarke)
WALK AWAY  (featuring Kim Shattuck & Matt Clarke)
(Palmyra Delran)

Walk away
But I’m still here
Disappear into the atmosphere
You can try to turn away
But you know who’s to blame
Close your eyes
You think you’re free from me
But you don’t see
You’ll have to face me soon
It’ll all come back to you

Little by little
You’re losing your mind
It’s melting like ice on a flame
Little by little
It’s driving you mad                                          
How long can you play your stupid game
Look around
You’re all alone face down
Like a rolling stone
Time has come today
Are you big enough to look my way
Walk Away…..
Track Name: I Thought You Said You Were Gonna Kill Yourself
I THOUGHT YOU SAID THAT YOU WERE GONNA KILL YOURSELF
(Palmyra Delran, Ben Vaughn)

I thought you said - I thought you said
That you were gonna kill yourself
You’re tired of being on a shelf
You’re not appreciated enough
The pain has become all too much
Too bad

I thought you said - I thought you said
That you were gonna pack it in
And stop all your complainin’
And leave us all here to live in peace
One less squeaky wheel needing grease
Too bad

You’re down about this You’re mad about that
And every day You’re under attack
From demons no one else can see
Day after day re-live your misery
But it’s gonna take more to convince me
Cuz I can’t take you seriously
I can’t take you seriously
I can’t take you - I can’t take you - I can’t take you
I - I - I - I - I - I - I

I thought you said - I thought you said
That you were gonna end it all
And finalize your downward fall
You’ve made your intentions mighty clear
That you were gonna check on outta here
To bad

Cry cry cry all the time
Cry cry cry all the time...etc...

I thought you said
  (Cry cry cry all the time)
I thought you said
  (Cry cry cry all the time)
I thought you said
  (Cry cry cry all the time)
I thought you said
  (Cry cry cry all the time)
I thought you said
I thought you said
Track Name: Chica Ye Ye (featuring Rachelle Garniez)
CHICA YE YE
(English & Spanish Lyrics)
 
I will never let you know
Just how much I love you so
I will never let you know
And one day you’ll be on your knees to beg me
For a little bit of love

But that’s something I won’t do
(Ye Ye)
I don’t wanna look at you
(Ye ye ye ye)
Because you do absolutely nothing
To fix my broken heart

Find yourself a chica
Find a chica ye ye
Who dances to the rhythm
Of that go-go beat

And she shakes her messy hair around
In her psychedelic socks
Find a chica ye ye
Find a chica ye ye
Who understands you like I do.

No te quieres enterar
(Ye ye)
Que te quiero de verdad
(Yeyeyeyey)
Y vendras a pedirme y arrogante
Y vendras como siempre a suplicarme

You’ll say I’m your chica - your chica ye ye
You’ll say I’m your chica ye ye
Que sea tu chica - tu chica yeye
Que sea tu chica yeye

*organ solo  (Ye Ye…. Yeyeyeye)
*guitar solo

Buscate una chica
Una chica yeye
Que tenga mucho ritmo
Y cante en ingles

Y que tiene el pelo sucio
Y las medias de color
Una chica ye ye
Una chica ye ye
Quien me entiendes como yo

Aaaaaaaaaaaah

I will never let you know
(Ye ye)
Just how much I love you so
(Ye ye ye ye)

Y vendras a pedirme y arrogarte
Y vendras como siempre a suplicarme

You’ll say I’m your chica - your chica ye ye
You’ll say I’m your chica ye ye
Que sea tu chica - tu chica yeye
Que sea tu chica yeye

Yeyeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Track Name: Tragedy Ann (featuring Betsy Todd)
TRAGEDY ANN  
(Palmyra Delran, Jennifer Tarr)
(Featuring Betsy Todd)

You’re only 22, got the weight of the world crashin’ down on you
And you buried ‘bout 10 feet deep, ya can’t even breathe
Darlin’ there you are, staring at the stars
Draw the curtains pull the shades lock yourself up tight for days
You’re miserable and bored, crack a smile - no that’s too much a chore
You’re not the bubbliest girl - you’re Tragedy Ann

You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann,
Oh girl you don’t know
You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann

Breakdowns are such fun, but what happens when all the breakin’s done?
Buckle up and hold tight, get set for round two tonight
All the boys - they wanna know what ‘cha doing up late sitting all alone
But they don’t understand you’re living in no man’s land
And you only got one friend and her patience is wearing awful thin
Oh please won’t you snap out of it Tragedy Ann

You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann,
Oh girl you don’t know
You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann

She don’t know why she’s mad
And don’t know why her life’s gotta be such a drag
You try to make her see
How great you think her life can be
But she don’t wanna know
And now you gotta go

You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann,
Oh girl you don’t know
You’re Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann, Tragedy Ann
Track Name: The Shortest Longest Story (featuring Cáit O'Riordan, Eddie Muñoz)
SHORTEST LONGEST STORY  
(Palmyra Delran)
(featuring Cait O’Riordan & Eddie Munoz)

 
Every promise I could give Became the plans we never lived
We couldn’t see it slip Through fingertips

It’s the point of no return The little worm has even turned
Things you say in spite Won’t make it right

Yes we lived the story that was scripted
Round and round we rode that carousel
But deep inside I knew
To stop spending time with you
And end the shortest longest story ever known

There’s no point in asking why And you can’t say we didn’t try
I see the puzzle pieces That are missing

All those things you can’t forget That made you secretly upset
Will hold you back  And keep you from moving on

Told ourselves that we were so committed
Sunshine lollipops and rainbows too
But then the wall came down
Crashing to the ground
To end the shortest longest story ever known

Open your eyes - see your mistakes
Maybe learn a thing or two
Like how to avoid future heartbreaks
And recognise tomorrow’s deja vus

This was not part of the plan We both forgot how it began
Skipping chapters makes The end come sooner

To the shortest longest story ever known
Yeah that’s shortest longest story ever known
Track Name: The Ballad Of Madface And The Baby (featuring Handsome Dick Manitoba, Charlie Nieland)
BALLAD OF MADFACE & THE BABY  
(Palmyra Delran)
(featuring Handsome Dick Manitoba, Charlie Nieland)

Madface & the Baby - Goin’ underground
Madface & the Baby - Won’t be comin’ round
Madface & the Baby - Got a couple of guns
Madface & the Baby - What have they done

Outsider kids lookin’ for some fun
From Hell to Eternity and life on the run
A string of bank jobs to catch a thrill
Now don’t think twice about making a kill

Madface & the Baby - They’re in so deep
Madface & the Baby - No soul to keep
Madface & the Baby - Goin’ nowhere fast
Madface & the Baby - Knew it couldn’t last

No lives left and nowhere to go
The final act is creeping in slow
Her dirty white dress gonna turn to red
His pinstripe vest will be shot to shreds

But they’ll stay on the run until their time has come
And their day is done

Rookie rebels have lost control
Secrets of these young ghosts
Are sucked into the black hole
Track Name: Song Of Love
SONG OF LOVE
(Palmyra Delran)

I’ll think of you today
What else can I say
So many years of talking
And now it’s time to walk the other way today

The stories that we shared
The days that I was scared
You’ve been there while I’ve cried
I know you knew that I would try to hide the pain

*guitar solo*

If I should feel alone
I’ll call you on the phone
Same time a different place
You can hear it in my face that I have gone away

So I’ll think of you today
What else can I say
I think I can be strong
But you knew it all along
And I’m giving you this song of love today
Today
