Track Name: Validation
I need validation in my life
I need validation in my life
I don't know where I've gone in my life
If you would hold my hand, it'd be right
Track Name: I Want You To Remember Me
I want you to remember me

Not my fault that I left
Left my mark on the world
But it's your fault that you
Don't remember my name
Our whole deal was that fame
Couldn't come to one alone
Now you see what it means
When I say you decay

I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
It's not that hard
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
It's not that hard at all
All
All

When you're flipping down the backstreets, halt
You couldn't take it with a gold tray, fault
Now I'm famous with a word to say
Why don't we try and keep it that way?
You gave nothing but disrespect
World's my oyster, you're deader than jet
Let's go over this once again
You need to remember my name

I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
It's not that hard
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
I want you to remember me
It's not that hard at all
All
All
I want you to remember me (all)
I want you to remember me (all)
I want you to remember me (all)
I want you to remember me (all)

Don't forget me, bitch
Track Name: I've Got A Secret
I've got a secret
I've got a secret
I've got a secret
But I can't tell you
(x4)

You would judge
(x4)

I've got a secret
I've got a secret
I've got a secret
But I can't tell you
(x4)

You would judge
(x4)

I've got a secret
I've got a secret
I've got a secret
But I can't tell you
(x4)

You would judge
(x7)

They say not to judge your kin
I think they're full of shit
You don't know me
No one knows me
Why can't I kiss her lips?
Why can't I be like them?
Heteronormative
Those pricks aren't just transphobic
Track Name: The Beginning Is The End (Vocal Version)
There was once a time
Where all I thought
And all I think
Is all the things I wanna be
But knowing they are not enough.

I had thought
That I could live
But really that's concealing it
And every time I look around
It makes me feel terrible.

I had always wanted what was best for you and me
But now I know there's no denying it
I know that it's the end.

You who are the world to me
Is fading fast but I don't care
I need you back
I need to see
That you were really real.

I can feel my time is running out
It's time
I have to move
But there is something blocking me
And this I cannot do.

I had always wanted what was best for you and me
But now I know there's no denying it
I know that it's the end.

I who never wanted much
But for you to be always with me
I sit here waiting
Crying now
I wish for you to come.

There could be an end someday
For no one knows what is to come
But really I know that's hope
And that we will never stay.

I had always wanted what was best for you and me
But now I know there's no denying it
I know that it's the end.

I had always wanted what was best for you and me
But now I know there's no denying it
I know that it's the end.

Алекс, не забывай меня

It's not too late to
Turn around
Turn around
You can still turn around
Go home right now
You can turn around
You can turn around
You can turn around
You can turn around now
You can't turn around
You can't turn around
You can't turn around now
You can't turn around
You can turn around
You can't turn around
You can turn around
You can turn around
You can turn around
You can't turn around
You can turn around
You can't turn around
You can turn around
You can turn around
You can't turn around now

Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Then you die die
Then you die die now
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Then you die

Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye
Looks you in the eye now

It wasn't meant to be
It's not your fault

Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know

It's too late
Turn around

Right now
Go home

Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know

Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know
Didn't want to know

In the aftermath of the events that we have seen
It is too late to partition on the lives of the lost ones
But you know in the land it's never too late
You can always turn around
You can always go back
You can forget the year that passed
It's not too bad
It's not too bad at all
It's not necessary to remember these things
You throw them out
You throw them in the trash
You forget them
It's stupid
It's gross
It's…
It's pretty embarrassing
Now forget it
Forget it
Forget it
Forget it
Forget
Track Name: Indecent
It's not wrong if you're doing it out of love
Out of love

Piecemeal holders touching down again on us
Tried to fight it but they don't know who we is
Love is wrong, hell, anyone could tell you that
Three part broken semiautomatic gun
Pop the pills until they say that you are done
You can never show your face outside again

Indecent exposure
Indecent loving
Indecent exposure
Indecent loving
Indecent
(x2)

Stilted headboards, twenty cent paid visitors
Mind round robin, thirty cent Cartesian cross
She's a softie, perhaps only forty cents?
You will take it, lovingly perhaps although
You will fake it, running in the dark alone
Can you save it? Time is not familiar
Hooves and haunches, lesbian extension cord
Giant conches, rubbing up against you now
This is hotness, time for you to cool it down

Indecent exposure
Indecent loving
Indecent exposure
Indecent loving
Indecent
(x2)

Tried to horse
With the horse horse lover
(x8)

You can't save it, it's too late, I know that now
You can't save it, it's too late, I know that now
Mother, hate it, admonish me for I am lost
Thrice I'm taken from the ones who love me so
You can't save it, it's too late, I know that now
You can't save it, it's too late, I know that now
Mother, hate it, admonish me for I am lost
Thrice I'm taken from the ones who love me so
I'm forsaken, say goodbye to the old life
