Lyrics

1. SCREAM

The Seeds in my head
Visions in red
All that I dream
And all that I've bled
My mind is a gun
I won't be out done
Say what you want
While I shoot for the sun

All you doubters and haters
Actors and fakers
I don't have time for you all
You're feeding the fire
That's taking me higher
Coming like a cannonball

Oh
It's kicking down your door
Kicking down your door
Oh
So what ya waitin' for?
What ya waitin' for?
Scream
Scream
Scream
Until they hear you
Scream

Step out of the haze
Sleep walkers awake
The pills that they give
You don't have to take
Don't wanna see life
Through cadaver eyes
Yesterday's dead
Tomorrows alive

All you movers and shakers
Freaks and hell raisers
We're climbing over your walls
You're feeding the fire
That's taking us higher
Coming like a cannonball

Oh
It's kicking down your door
Kicking down your door
Oh
So what ya waitin' for?
What ya waitin' for?
Scream
Scream
Scream
Until they hear you
Scream
Scream
Scream
Until they hear you
Scream

Ah, Ah...

Oh
It's kicking down your door
Kicking down your door
Oh
So what ya waitin' for?
What ya waitin' for?
Scream
Scream
Scream
Until they hear you
Scream
Scream
Scream
Until they hear you
Scream




2. I AM THE FIRE

Am I brave enough?
Am I strong enough?
To follow the desire
That burns from within
To push away my fear
To stand where I'm afraid
I am through with this
Cuz I am more than this
I promise to myself
Alone and no one else
My flame is rising higher

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I've been sacrificed
My Hearts been cauterized
Hanging on to hope
Shackled by the ghost
Of what I once believed
That I could never be
What's right in front of me?

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire

I don't believe I'll fall from grace
Won't let the past decide my fate
Leave forgiveness in my wake
Take the love that I've embraced

I promise to myself, me and no one else
I am more than this
I am the fire...

I am the fire
I am burning brighter
Roaring like a storm
And I am the one I've been waiting for
Screaming like a siren
Alive and burning brighter
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire
I am the fire




3. SICK INDIVIDUAL

Well you think that you know what I am but you don't.
'Cause I say what you can't and I do what you won't.
I like it loud, wear it proud, like a crown upon my head
I'll always be this way 'till the day that I'm dead

'Cause I'm a sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want, want, want
I'm unusual
Ain't taking no shit, gonna drink this sip 'till I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
Sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want

Would you like to know what I do if I got you alone
Would I sigh would I beg would I feed would I moan
I don't talk the talk cause I walk the walk and I'll shake it for you just like this
Singing la da da dala da da da save your kiss I need a lick

'Cause I'm a sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want, want, want
I'm unusual
Ain't taking no shit, gonna drink this sip 'till I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
Sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want

So come a little bit closer, baby
'Cause all I want is you
So what are you gonna do
Come a little bit closer, honey
Gonna have my way with you!

You!

'Cause I'm a sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want, want, want
I'm unusual
Ain't taking no shit, gonna drink this sip 'till I'm gone, gone, gone
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
Sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want. Want, WANT

I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
I'm livin' it up, not giving a what
Sick individual
And I'm doing this thing called whatever the fuck I want




4. AMEN

A fire’s gotta burn
The world is gonna turn
A rain has gotta fall
Fate is gonna call
But I just keep on breathing
Long as my heart is beating

Someone's gotta hate
It's never gonna change
Gets harder everyday
This is one hell of a place
Keep your heart from freezing
To keep yourself believing

But I won't run
I'm not afraid
I'll look em in the eye
Gonna hear me say
It's...

My life
My love
My sex
My drug
My lust
My god it ain't no sin
Can I get it
Can I get an Amen
My grace
My church
My pain
My tears
My hurt
My god, I'll say it again
Can I get it
Can I get an Amen

Life has gotta kill
Faith is gonna blind
Hope is gonna fade
The truth is gonna lie
Sometimes there's no reason
To justify the meaning

But I won't run
I'm not ashamed
It's gonna take more than this for me to break

My life
My love
My sex
My drug
My lust
My god it ain't no sin
Can I get it?
Can I get an Amen?
My grace
My church
My pain
My tears
My hurt
My god, I'll say it again
Can I get it?
Can I get an Amen?

My life, my love, my sex, my drug
My lust...

My life
My love
My sex
My drug
My lust
My god it ain't no sin
Can I get it?
Can I get an Amen?
My grace
My church
My pain
My tears
My hurt
My god, I'll say it again
Can I get it?
Can I get an Amen?




5. DEAR DAUGHTER

Dear Daughter
Hold your head up high
There's a world outside
That's passing by
Dear Daughter
Never lose yourself
Remember that
You're like nobody else

Life throws you in
To the unknown
And you feel like you're
Out there all alone

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will be love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
And through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
For you

Dear Daughter
Don't worry about those stupid girls
If they try to bring you down
It's cause they're scared and insecure
Dear Daughter
Don't change for any man
Even if he promises the stars
And takes you by the hand

Life throws you in
To the unknown
And you feel like you're
Out there all alone

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will be love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
And through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
For you

Dear daughter
I was just like you
And just like me
You're gonna make it through

These are words
That every girl should have a chance to hear
There will be love
There will be pain
There will be hope
There will be fear
And through it all year after year
Stand or fall I will be right here
And after all I will be right here
For you




6. NEW MODERN LOVE

I've got a forbidden love
I'm not givin' it up
I'm not givin' it up
I've got a new modern love
I'm not givin' it up
I'm not givin' it up

I won't pretend that I don't feel the way I feel
I can't forget the taste of something that's real

Step into my closet
And maybe you'll find
Something that'll scare you, something that you like
Your old familiar logic
Is poison on your lips
There's nothing in the water
That's just the way it is
Just the way it is

I've got a forbidden love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up
I've got an uncommon love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up
I don't care if you don't want it
Cuz I, I, I got it
I don't care if you don't get it
Cuz I, I Still want it
I got a new modern love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up no

You can't rewire these circuits, any other way.
Yeah you can twist the signal, the message is the same

Step outta your bubble
And maybe you'll find
Something that'll save ya
Something that you'll like
Your old familiar logic
Is poison on your lips
There's nothing in the water
That's just the way it is

I've got a forbidden love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up
I've got an uncommon love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up
I don't care if you don't want it
Cuz I, I, I got it
Don't care if you don't get it
Cuz I, I Still want it
I got a New Modern Love
I'm not givin' it up
Not givin' it up no

Step into my closet
And maybe you'll find
Something that'll scare you, something that you like
There's something that you like
There's something that you like...

I don't care if you don't want it
Cuz I, I, I got it
don't care if you don't get it
Cuz I, I still want it
I got a new modern love
I'm not givin' it up
I'm not givin' it up no
Not givin' it up
Not givin' it up no




7. MAYHEM

I'm so bored
With this world that spins around me
Used to make me dizzy
I'm so tired
Of these boys that hang around me
Used to drive me crazy

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some?

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
I'm a gonna get some, get some, get some
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
I'm a gonna get some, get some, get some, oh

Cruel intentions
Wind me in a spiral
I'm waiting to unravel
Twisted motives
Drive me in a circle
I'm dying to untangle

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some?

A little mayhem never hurt anyone
Where'm I gonna get some, get some, get some?
A little bedlam 'til I'm coming undone
Where'm I gonna get some, get some, get some?
Oh, oh, oh

I wanna feel the chaos
I wanna hear the uproar
A little pandemonium
I know I'm not the only one
I wanna be blown away
I wanna feel the walls shake
I wanna feel the walls shake
I wanna feel the walls shake
Shake it shake it shake it...

Oh
1, 2, 3, 4, oh

Looking for some Mayhem
Need a little Mayhem
Need a little Mayhem
Looking for some Mayhem
Looking for some Mayhem, yeah, yeah
Need a little Mayhem
Want to hear some Mayhem, yeah




8. BAD GIRLS WORLD

They all say I've lost my mind
But I'm just tryin' to find a better way
Cause somewhere in this sea of fools
The real truth is they're scared because your brave

You'll be ok if you be yourself for no one else
They'll hate you cause you're beautiful
So blaze the trail that no one can
Cause they'll never understand
That we live in a bad girls world, bad girls' world, bad girls
We runnin a bad girls world, bad girls' world, bad girls world, bad girls

All you rebel babies
And you pretty thing with the dirty mouth
Tell 'em times are changing
And we will never back down
This is our house now

If you be yourself for no one else
They'll hate you cause you're beautiful
So blaze the trail that no one can
Cause they'll never understand
That we live in a bad girls world, bad girls' world, bad girls
We runnin' a bad girls world, bad girls' world, bad girls world, bad girls.




9. GONNA GET MINE

Naked pictures on my telephone
All my secrets that you weren’t supposed to know
But I sleep just fine every single night
Cause I got a film tape that you will never find

And everybody wants to know what I got going on below
And everybody wants to see, but then they’re fucking all of me
Na na nananana, I get what I want and I’m gonna get mine [x2]
Imma get mine...

Uninvited to my fantasy
So get the fuck out of my legacy
I’m pleadin’ guilty
And my fate’s been sentenced
And if had to do it all over again
I’d do it, do it, do it again

Na na nananana
I get what I want and I’m gonna get mine
Na na nananana
Yeah yeah I’m doing just fine
Imma get mine, Imma get mine, Imma get [x4]

And everybody wants to know what I got going on below
And everybody wants to see, but then they’re fucking all of me
Na na nananana, I get what I want and I’m gonna get mine [x4]




10. THE RECKONING

Cross my heart, broke your promise, told me lies
Why did you
Watch me suffer, make me feel like I deserved to
Everybody takes, everybody breaks somebody’s heart leaving some on their own
But this felt more like you ripping flesh from bone
You made a mess out of me
Where do I begin?
You paid for your sins

[Chorus:]
Like a reckoning
You never saw coming
I’m the reaper outside your door
You took everything made me feel less than nothing
I’m getting what I came for
Like the sound of all the stars crashing in the dark
I said a prayer and buried your name
And up through the ashes I rose like wildfire

The reckoning

I gave you more than my heart could hope for
You misused it
Scraped up every piece that fell to the floor
When you tore through it
Laying me to ruin
You knew what you were doing
Leaving me to skin and bone
But trusting you was no one’s fault but my own
You get what you give
So take your last breath
Before I lay you to rest

[Chorus]

I should have known better than that
I should have known all along
I should have known better than that
I should have known
But now I’m moving on

[Chorus]

The reckoning
You never saw coming
You never saw me coming
The reckoning
I’m the reaper outside your door
I am the reckoning
You’re every wrong you ever did to me
I am the reckoning




11. APOCALYPTIC

I wear my nine-inch heels when we go to bed
I paint the color of my lips blood red
I get so animal like never before
So you press play and I hit record

'Cause we're dysfunctional physical
Always slamming doors
You're a bitch, throwing fits
Always waging wars
Me and you,
Sad but true
We're not us anymore
But there's still one thing we're good for

I'll give you one last night
So make it twisted
Give you one last shot, go on and hit it
Give you one last time to make me miss it
Baby, love me apocalyptic
Come on!

Give me a red hand print right across my ass
I'm leaving scratches up and down your back
Throw me against the wall, bite me on my neck
Like end of the world, break-up sex

'Cause we're dysfunctional physical
Always slamming doors
You're a bitch, throwing fits
Always waging wars
Me and you,
Sad but true
We're not us anymore
But there's still one thing we're good for

I'll give you one last night
So make it twisted
Give you one last shot,
Go on and hit it
Give you one last time
To make me miss it
Baby, love me apocalyptic

I'll give you one last night
So make it twisted
Give you one last shot,
Go on and hit it
Give you one last time
To make me miss it
Baby, love me apocalyptic

Oh
'Cause no one does it better
No one knows me better
Oh
'Cause nothing lasts forever
Nothing lasts forever
It's now or never

[2x]
I'll give you one last night
So make it twisted
Give you one last shot,
Go on and hit it
Give you one last time
To make me miss it
Baby, love me apocalyptic
Come on

Baby, love me apocalyptic
Come on
Baby, love me apocalyptic




12. WHAT SOBER COULDN'T SAY

Headed for a blackout
Hurting like hell
Finding my way to bottom of the bottle
Packing up my suitcase
Leaving no trace
One step closer with every swallow

A deafening silence
Like you like me
Where you want me
Saying nothing
But not this time
I'm gonna say
I'm gonna say

What sober couldn't say
Couldn't break thru
Under the influence of you
Incoherent, truth serum
Just enough to make me bullet proof
I'm so over this love gone violent
I'm drunk and brave enough to say
What sober couldn't say

Criminal in my mind
I've been doing time
Believing in the lie
That you still loved me
Making up for
The slamming of the door
Always wanting more but never giving

Sick of crying
Tired of trying
Always buying
Into every kiss
But not this time
I'm gonna say

What sober couldn't say
Couldn't break thru
Under the influence of you
Incoherent, truth serum
Just enough to make me bullet proof
I'm so over this love gone violent
I'm drunk and brave enough to say
What sober couldn't say

Ooh...
This is my intervention
Getting your attention
Ooh...
I'm gonna say
I'm gonna say
I'm gonna say

What sober couldn't say
Couldn't break thru
Under the influence of you
Incoherent, truth serum
Just enough to make me bullet proof
I'm so over this love gone violent
I'm drunk and brave enough to say
What sober couldn't say

What sober couldn't say

I'm so over this love gone violent
I'm drunk and brave enough to say

I'm over this
So over this




13. I LIKE IT HEAVY

Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
I see the good in the bad and the ugly
I need the volume one louder than ten
I put the pedal to the metal, needle into the red
And if the windows ain't shaking
Making my heart race
If I can't feel it in my chest
I'm in the wrong damn place!

I got a demon in my soul and a voice in my head
It's saying GO! GO! GO! I can sleep when I'm dead
There's a sonic revelation bringing me to my knees
And there's a man down below who needs my sympathy
Got a ringing in my ears getting ready to burst
Screaming "Hallelujah Motherfucker take me to church"

I like it louder than the boom
Of a big bass drum
I need it harder than the sound
Of a guitar grunge
I love to crank it up
Make it thump
And evil to the core
Headbanging in the pit
And throwing my horns
And just like old school
Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
I need to drop it down low
And make it heavy
I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I ride the lightning, roll with the thunder
Going down down down with my sisters and brothers
I fell in love with their darkest parts
Stand on the side of the wild at heart
I plucked the feather off a crow so I could fly
Since I was 13 years old I've had my fist to the sky

I like it louder than the boom
Of a big bass drum
I need it harder than the sound
Of a guitar grunge
I love to crank it up
Make it thump
And evil to the core
Headbanging in the pit
And throwing my horns
And just like old school
Sabbath, Zeppelin and Lemmy
I need to drop it down low
And make it heavy
I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I like it, I like it, I like it heavy [x4]

Some like beautiful, perfect and pretty
I see the good in the bad and the ugly

I like it heavy
I like it heavy

I like it, I like it, I like it heavy [x4]




Bonustracks (Edition Deluxe)

14. JUMP THE GUN

Boot on the start line
Pistol in the air
‘Quila in the glass and a dead set stare
Two minutes in baby make your move
If you won’t do it I’ll do it for you
I ain’t waitin’ on you, no
I ain’t waitin’ for you

[Chorus:]
I jump the gun
Oh here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all just because I jumped the gun

whoa whoa whoa whoa

Checkers on the flag
Time to pay the tab
Hoppin’ in a cab
It’s time to be bad
Cigarette smoke, lipstick on your face
My place or yours
I’m good either way
Oh babe my meter’s runnin’
Oh baby are you coming?

[Chorus x2]

Woke up in the morning pounding in my head
Three empty bottles no sheets on the bed
Baby rolled over and this is what he said
He said, “Babe I think I love you”

[Chorus]

Oh, here I go again
I’m the one
Don’t know when to say when
Here for fun I wasn’t looking for a friend
Now we’re kissing under covers and it’s all just because
I couldn’t keep in my pocket
Lit the fuse to the rocket
And I’m sinnin’ while I’m winnin’
Now it’s end and a beginning
And we’ll see the rising sun
Because I jumped the gun
I jumped the gun

Boot on the start line
Pistol in the air
‘Quila in the glass, oh here I go again




15. UNAPOLOGETIC

Whiskey
Give it to me straight
Straight and strong
We’ll drink until it’s gone
Dirty
I got a dirty mouth
Say what I want to say
Can’t wash it away

Well I’m high steppin’ out of the box
Getting out of the cage I’m busting the lock
Oh yeah

I’m not scared
Ain’t trying to be
Won’t give nothing less than all of me

[Chorus:]
Because I’m unapologetic
Unapologetic with you tonight
Nothing to hide
Unapologetic
Unapologetic, turn on the light
All of the lights
And I’ll take you as you are
And we’ll burn like the stars

Give me
Give me something real
Don’t play no games
No masquerade

‘Cause it’s last call, it’s closing time
I think I’m gonna let you read my mind
Oh yeah
Yeah, every little piece of me

[Chorus]

I’ll give you every piece of me
I’ll give you every piece of you

Baby there’s nothing you can say
To make me throw it all away
I won’t give nothing less of me
Nothing less than all of me

[Chorus]

I’ll take you as you are
We’re burning like the stars
Oh yeah…

16. DRUNK PRETTY

Woke up looking like a walk of shame
Pillow case covered in red lip stain
Bottom of the barrel beauty queen
Caught like a cat, caught like a cat
Caught like a cat in a fishnet dream

Hungover and underdressed
You love the way that I'm unimpressed
I'm a Perfect 10, but I'm coming down
You're seeing double cuz I'm a knockout

Drunk pretty
A touch too much
Drunk pretty
Such a lovely lush
Drunk pretty
Don't you wish you were mine
Never looked so fine

Don't ask me to walk a straight line
The morning after is when I shine
Crooked smile with a quick dial
Run like mascara, but I do it in style
(But I do it in style)

Hungover and underdressed
You love the way I'm unimpressed
I'm a Perfect 10, but I'm coming down
You're seeing double cuz I'm a knockout

Drunk pretty
A touch too much
Drunk pretty
Such a lovely lush
Drunk pretty
Don't you wish you were mine
Never looked so

Fine, fine, fine
Fine, fine, fine
Fine, fine, fine
Fine, fine, fine

Drunk pretty
A touch too much
Drunk pretty
Such a lovely lush
Drunk pretty
Don't you wish you were mine
Drunk pretty
Never looked so fine

Drunk pretty
A touch too much
Drunk pretty
Such a lovely lush
Drunk pretty
Don't you wish you were mine
Never looked so
Fine, fine
Fine, fine
Fine, fine
Fine, fine
Fine...
