Track Name: This Side of Paradise
V1:hands that feel, teeth that cut
boots with heels, go and strut
feels right, have a taste
throw it up, such a waste
boiled blood, drives you mad
blow it off, just a fad
in the back, smoke it up
take a swig, down the cup
tear it up, burn it down
feeling hurt, lie around
hair a mess, nails chipped
stained dress, world flipped
coming down, about to choke
take some more, now you're broke
cause that’s just the price
on this side of paradise

It’s not there anymore
I left it behind
you can’t touch it
you can’t feel it
It’s not on this side
it’s not here with us
i don’t want it here
I don’t want it

At the door, back again
kick em’ out, not your friend
pack it tight, make it fit
close your eyes, feel it hit
trying hard, give your most
show it off, go and boast
don't be shy, take a peek
sanctified, what a freak
rotted thoughts, in your head
wants it quick, hit the bed
takes it hard, bleeding heart
grabs the mud, not so smart
talk it out, make a deal
spit it back, makes you reel
never feels quite right
on this side of paradise
Track Name: Mercy
Mercy

Close the curtains
We’re in this world now
It’s darker here
I can see you crystal clear
you already know
I changed the flow
Never shown any care
I was some sorta fucked up dare

my soul is in your hands
i can not stand i will not breath
please oh please have mercy on me

I’m not one to play games
Just go ahead and say it
Take it all with you
Last part of the two
So many days to go and lose
Yet so hard to refuse
All that's come to pass
I know it won’t be the last

my soul is in your hands
i can not stand i will not breath
please oh please have mercy on me
Track Name: Come and Get it Now
Oh lil honey now
Given me a run around
Got me thinkin’ hard girl
I really don’t know how

to get to you cause you got me
oh, come and get it now


Come and get it now
yeah, gonna get it now

yeah tried to walk away
couldn’t stay away
Had to have your way
saw Your love go astray

Fallin’ back in love wit chu
Oh, come and get it now

Come and Get it now
really gonna get it now
(wait 2)
Thought you could play me
but I figured out a way to see
Coulda just let it be
not that you can blame me

Still haven’t gotten my fix
oh, come and get it now
Track Name: Dig! The Radio
You said you were in search of gold
In times like these that never gets old
no way it could be worth the gain
don't you tell me it's the end
didn't you hear what they said
not that it meant a thing

Please tell me how does it feel
I imagine it seems a bit unreal
You took all they had
Just to try and prove a point
That he never would have done before
But that's just the way it goes

Told them all to turn out the red lights
Never said that they'd be alright
Was this ever part of your master plan
But now it's too late for you
They were Better without this anyway
Could have just swallowed your pride
Track Name: I've Got a Thing for Pleasure
I've been looking for an accomplice
And you've been soundin' alright babe
You've got this all lost in the way
but who said shit about gettin' paid
Got that fix that I've been searchin'' for
It's an attraction that don't last awile
So let's go before it fades
Just think of it as a fucked up sorta trial

Oh I've got a thing for pleasure
yeah, I've got a thing for pleasure
Come on I've got a thing for pleasure
and I know that you do too

the way that you've been movin'
Got me in some sorta trace
time is starting. to run thin
there's just enough for one last dance
hope you're leavin' here with me
That's the way things are meant to be
It's about time you really got to live
Because you know I'm not one to forgive

Oh I've got a thing for pleasure
yeah, I've got a thing for pleasure
Come on I've got a thing for pleasure
and I know that you do too

You're acting so damn Mysterious
Oh I don't know how you feel
Not that it really matters
cause I just fuckin' sealed the deal
Tryin' to see through the smoke in your eyes
But all I ever hear is just lies lies lies lies
don't think I don't here your cries
I hope these aren't our last goodbyes

Oh I've got a thing for pleasure
yeah, I've got a thing for pleasure
Come on I've got a thing for pleasure
and I know that you do too
Oh I've got a thing for you
