Track Name: Girl in the Basement
A girl once lived in a basement
Stuck in her own entrapment
Living off scraps and presents
Scraping away at her patience

If she squinted just right
She could see some daylight
And what a delight it would be
To be outside
Just playing all day
And laughing away
Oh, what a delight it would be

A girl once lived in a basement
Self-imprisoned in darkness
Waiting for horse and carriage
To whisk her away from this sadness

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead
Track Name: Hugo
I’ve been playing backgammon
With my eyes on the floor
Facing myself hiding
Stay while I play the pawn
I don’t like when they come and stare
I don’t like when they try to tear me away

I’ve been seeing monsters
At 3am they come out and twirl my hair
Shivering, I know they’re waiting
Put the blanket over my head and face the wall

I don’t like when they come and stare
I don’t like when they try to tear me away

Tear me down
Tear me up

I don’t like when they come and stare
I don’t like when they try to tear me away

Oh, if I had known
I would’ve played the pawn
Track Name: Plastic
A part of me feels so happy
But the rest feels so, so sad
And maybe all this is worth it
For seconds of what we once had
All despite of what I know

A part me feels enamored
But the rest feels so betrayed
And maybe this time I’m cornered
I’ll remember how I was made
All in spite of what I know
It’s tough to see where eyes can slowly grow

You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks

I stand in a row of millions
And they all look just like me
So if she feels so familiar
Why can’t you just get up and leave?
All despite of what I can see
It’s tough when your own soul is just a dream

You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re take-a take-a taking you’re always take-a taking
(Cha-ching cha-ching)
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
Just to see how it moves, how it bends how it talks
You’re taking me out of a brand new box
And you bruise all my limbs and you pull on my locks

And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic?
When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic
And who really cares about itty bitty pieces of plastic?
When you melt it all down it’ll eventually become elastic
It’s fantastic, you’ll see!
Track Name: Without a Doubt
I guess that it’s all over
The credits are rolling
Lights are shining
So that must mean that life goes on
Whether you know it or you don’t

The end’s never deceiving
When the beginning has no meaning
I see the big picture at last
Little did I know I was cast

Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
And it’s slowly getting to me
I won’t let you pass right through me

I jolt up and start packing
Avoiding all eye contact and smiling
I try to walk fast so I can breathe
While you’re left behind in the stampede

I turn around in time to see…
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
And it’s slowly getting to me
I won’t let you pass right through me

You’re so hard for me to handle
I don’t know how to dismantle
You are so unusual
Despite all misconceptions
I saw to your true intentions
And this is what the screen won’t show

Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
Without a doubt, without a doubt, without a doubt
I figured you out
And it’s slowly getting to me
I won’t let you pass right through me
Track Name: Act II - The Ship
Weaving through the waves of an ocean
Singing muse tells a tale of misfortune
Girls and girls in a long line
Before her stands a man
Who holds the world and her life
In his hands, such hands, if they were good
But they command this land
There you are and here I am
Track Name: Devil's Dance
If the world is a stage
Then I’m here to upstage it
In its masquerade
I’m here to unveil

That you are no one
Until you become someone
Then the rest will come

So dance, dance for now
Dance till your shoes wear out
Just dance, dance around
Dance till the sand runs out
Dance till the sand runs out

If the world is a maze
Then I’m here to graze it
In this serenade
I’m here to amaze, well

You are no one
Until you become someone
Then the rest will come

So dance, dance for now
Dance till your shoes wear out
Just dance, dance around
Dance till the sand runs out

I’m not stupid I just don’t care

I’ll dance for now
Dance till my shoes wear out
I’ll dance, dance around
Dance till the sand runs out

Dance, dance, dance, dance, dance, dance
Just dance
Track Name: Mantis Mantra
I see you’re having trouble sleeping
Keep me up or I’ll be dreaming of you
And pretty soon I’ll be worth keeping
But for now baby keep dreaming that day will come
That day will come

I see you’re having trouble breathing
Let me help you out of all that clothing
And like a snake I’ll slither on your skin
But only give enough to make you want it again
I’ll make you want me again

I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again
I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again

I see you’re having trouble smiling
Let me show you something you won’t soon forget
And as I’m staring at the dresser
I’m hoping there’s no evil looming overhead
Cause everything you said
Was always on a bed

I’ll be your favorite girl, that way I’ll never get hurt
Keep you as far as I can, so it won’t happen again
Baby I’ve traveled the world and taught things you’ll never learn
On weekends I’ll be your girl, Monday through Friday you’re dirt
To me
Track Name: Down
Standing on a corner looking through you
Smart and salivating like a wolf would
Don’t rest your head quite yet
Or you might regret it
Eyes that glimmer whether it’s day or night
Nails filed and a sly smile ready to strike
Tip toeing closer you should stay inside
And dim the lights

Cause she’ll be knocking down your door
And she’ll be storming down the hall
And she’ll be burning down your home
And she’ll be laughing through it all
And everybody else will know
No fury like a woman scorned

In plain sight she’s holding tight and waiting
Oh, when she swings her hips and moves her lips
She’s lying
But by the time you realize what she’s doing
You’ll probably have just a few seconds to think it through

Cause she’ll be knocking down your door
And she’ll be storming down the hall
And she’ll be burning down your home
And she’ll be laughing through it all
And everybody else will know
No fury like a woman scorned

Satisfied and just in time for dinner
She takes a bite and soon the lights get dimmer
The room spins, a man grins
Who cares who’ll win? If you’re both dying
Then who’s keeping score?

Cause she’ll be knocking down your door
And she’ll be storming down the hall
And she’ll be burning down your home
And she’ll be laughing through it all
And everybody else will know
No fury like a woman scorned
Track Name: Kinda Girl
I’m not the kinda girl who finds it hard to say no
I’m not the kinda girl who’ll sit aside and be ignored
I’m not the kinda girl who’ll wait around for you to show
I’m not the kinda girl who’ll play until you’re bored

Well I don’t have this feeling for nothing
But this

I’m not the kinda girl who finds it hard to say yes
I’m not the kinda girl who’s always serious
I’m not the kinda girl who’ll try hard to impress
I’m not the kinda girl who needs to undress

Well I don’t have this feeling for nothing
But this
Track Name: Act III - Festival
Weaving through
Singing muse
Girls and girls
Track Name: Escape it All
You can’t escape it all

I am making paper planes
I watch them fly inside my bedroom
If I unlock the window pane
Will they fly or fall in this monsoon?

Pick up the pieces
Pieces of glass
Whisper your wishes
Wish it goes fast

You can’t escape it all

I am flying through airwaves
I hope to glide higher than the moon
Will things ever really change?
When I slide out of this cocoon

Pick up the pieces
Pieces of glass
Whisper your wishes
Wish it goes fast

You can’t escape it all
Track Name: Somewhere Else
I’m running out of patience
So hear me out
I’ve been stuck behind this silence
For too long I have waited to speak
Now here’s my chance
But my voice is too weak for this

I’m running out of sympathy
When I’m doubt
Just one glance is all I really need
To see what you once were and now have become
How stories changed how they all made me numb, so numb

Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get away for a day
Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get out of your way

I’m going out, I’m leaving
Out of this grout
I will be gone before the morning
It’s not even worth it to tell you at all
You might not even notice that I am gone, so gone

Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get away for a day
Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get out of your way

If you got it in yourself, guarding your cell
Judging by your luck, how you gonna look
When you’re locked up?

Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get away for a day
Take me somewhere else
I’ve been trying to get out of your way
Track Name: Finale - Swan Song
In front of a million pairs of eyes
I squint to see beyond the shining lights
There is a face that I recognize
Time stands still for a moment before it flies
Frozen in place I can’t help but stare
I blink and it’s like you were never there
I’m running but I am just chasing
After a ghost I am haunting

I exit out of the front entrance
I see you turn the corner and disappear
There’s no use in chasing the intangible
But I can’t help but run after you
Track Name: The Girl in the Basement (Stripped Acoustic Version)
A girl once lived in a basement
Stuck in her own entrapment
Living off scraps and presents
Scraping away at her patience

If she squinted just right
She could see some daylight
And what a delight it would be
To be outside
Just playing all day
And laughing away
Oh, what a delight it would be

A girl once lived in a basement
Self-imprisoned in darkness
Waiting for horse and carriage
To whisk her away from this sadness

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead

If she wished really hard
And sang out real loud
Then some passerby’s bound to
Pass and hear the sound
But nobody cares
Cause no one’s out there
So she’ll sing a song till she’s dead
