Zack S. An AMAZING blend of surf, spaghetti western, new wave, and punk. Great sound, great lyrics and vocals, great rhythms. Perfection! An outstanding debut. I can't wait for their next album but this will be hard to top.

Track Name: Somebody Call a Doctor
The words on your tongue make a heartbeat run amok
and every single night I'm fighting from inside a shadow
that’s moving like a ghost down in between your walls and alleys
and tapering at the end the moment's gone gone gone.

You're angry because this isn't what you want.
The boring city people are a haunt.
How many more lives have you got?
I can't say I know.

A bitter stream of thoughts are pouring out like leaky memories
in undulating hemorrhages of friendship miscarriages
or a giant big hand from the closet of the damned
that pulls you back pulls you back into a bad dream.
Track Name: Girl on Fire
Girl on fire make my heart skip beats just like a stone
Girl on fire make my heart skip beats just like a stone
Obedient to chaos scared to pieces at the thought of left alone
Girl on fire like an old friend that's lost and gone for good
Girl on fire like a fantasy that's lost and gone for good

Girl made of metal, made of makeup, made of norms
Slip out the back door (somehow), girl confused and tangled like a storm
You see it now, you see it now, and then it's gone for good
You see her now, you see her now, and then she's gone for good
But the look, the feel— the girl was never really there at all.
Track Name: Vengeance is Fun
Our heroine on the brink of revenge
The dust in her brow, landscape in her eyes
I’m not your toy, don't throw me around
Hand on her hips, still as the sun, menace stares at his gun

Bang bang bang not bad for a slut
Bang bang bang it's that time of the month
Bang bang bang girl keep your head up
Dance fucker dance because enough is enough

The man is a cat wearing blacker than black
Insidious words that are wearing a hat
Under your thumb, stuck in a trap
Bird's eye view, establishing shot, hand on her hips, the men are shocked
Track Name: I'm Tired of Pretty Girls
I'm tired of pretty girls around my man.
Pulling out her hair like I'm pulling up the weeds.
Wedding ring or not, wedding ring or not.
Let this be a warning to you all.

I'm tired of pretty girls around my man.
Don't think I don't know what you all are doing.
Another glass of wine, another glass of wine.
Don't think I don't know what you all are doing.
Your subtlety is rank, you pretentious little skanks
Let this be a lesson to you all.

I'm tired of pretty girls around my man.
Ich hab genug von schönen Mädls um meinen Mann.
Track Name: Schatzi
Ich hab ein Mädl dem man gut gefallen kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man gut necken kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man gut lecken kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man gut schmecken kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man frühstücken kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man gut verstecken kann.
Ich kenn ein Mädl das man gut bekleckern kann.

Das ist nicht möglich!
Du musst ein Ausländer sein!

Warum siehst du so gelangweilt aus?
Sicherheit schläft sanft dort zuhaus.
Track Name: Explain Yourself to a Bat
It's like a talking bat
An ominous sensation
Voices in the night
That bring me information
It's like a talking bat

Stare into its eyes and see exactly what is lurking in your soul.

It’s like an angry brick
Flying through the air
From the corner of your eye
Puts the windshield in your hair
It’s like a talking bat

Stare into these eyes girl
Tell us what you see
Take a good hard look, girl
Tell us what you see
It's like a talking bat

It's a little like a bomb
A feeling in your chest
A wild pack of dogs
Driving the U6
It's exactly like a bomb
Track Name: Fashion Fascist
Tight pants, cigarette hands, fashion faux show, contrapposto.
I’ve got a million dollar magazine mind from Milano.
I’ve got a million dollar magazine mind from Milano.

I want wanton walking under a face like a bulldozer that won’t stop talking.
I want to tell you something important but I really know nothing.
I want to tell you something interesting but I think you’re boring.

That bitch she stole my look.
I worked to bring it back.
I followed what I saw
But I don’t look like the ad.
Beauty is a deity I never can seem to please.

Gimme your sex!
Gimme your sex!
No sign of sex despite the slutty dress, why not?
I put the makeup on but my new identity is still shirking.
I’m going through the motions but the magic is not working.


Wear those clothes, break your back, give me looks.
Bite your tongue, buy new face, all better now.
Bin ich Frau? Bin ich Tier? Bin ich Biest?

Diese Heels steckten mich in eine Box, aber ich glaube, dass ich es so mag.
I'm having such a moment need to photograph myself on the sidewalk.
I'm serious and I’m candid because it's life and I think my life’s a catwalk.
Track Name: You Have a Future in Television
Television says to be quiet and to wait wait wait
Television says I'll be lonely if I do it my way
Trying new things
Wear the new clothes
Sending signs, fireworks,
Everything but bomb threats
Heart bleeds so wet might need a tourniquet
How is it possible he never ever gets it??

Television says I'm not her and I'm probably to blame
I don't wanna be alone so better play along with the game
Dance with other girls
Puts me in the grave
Black eyes, true love
I could be his number one
Build myself up just to be let down
Go to the mirror cry cry cry cry now
Television says I'm not her and I'm probably to blame

I want for you to ask me to dance
I want for you to ask me to dance
It kills to watch and sit on my hands
I want for you to ask me to dance
I wore this dress for you and you haven't noticed me
I wore this dress for you and you haven't noticed me
Something must be wrong
Something must be wrong
Something must be wrong
Wrong wrong wrong wrong
