Intro
Track Name: Secret Love
You know its sexier
when its a secret
but it gets so hard
just trying to keep it
Oh I should shut my mouth
cause the guy I'm talking about
is one I got on the go
but he isn't "open"

Oh My secret love I don't care what they say
I'm gonna put your secret safe
so that you will remain ah ah ah oh ah ah

My secret love I don't care what they do
I'm gonna stand by you
together this we can get through ah ah ah oh ah ah

He only comes around
when all my housemates are out
get busy on the couch
but his paranoid of every sound
"Oh Steven is that a flatmate back early?
Oh sorry I don't mean to be sure a freak .
but you know I gonna I gotta put the work off the street.
Between you and me I gotta put this discreet.
Cause what would the neighbors say?
My mom would see a early grave!
I'd lose my job if they knoew I was g-g-g-gay."
"Shhhh honey baby its OK
we all get there eventually
I know is a big step to take
and its OK to be afraid
and we can talk this if you like
we can talk about it all night
or you can take off your trousers
Cause I wanna FUCK!

My secret love I don't care what they say
I'm gonna put your secret safe
so that you will remain ah ah ah oh ah ah

My secret love I don't care what they do
I'm gonna stand by you
together this we can get through ah ah ah oh ah ah

and his afraid to go out
so we end up spending
most of your time in bed
which I can't complain about X2

My secret love I don't care what they say
I'm gonna put your secret safe
so that you will remain ah ah ah oh ah ah

My secret love I don't care what they do
I'm gonna stand by you
together this we can get through ah ah ah oh ah ah

and his afraid to go out
so we end up spending
most of your time in bed
which I can't complain about X2

Track Name: WORK!
and Damien said
"If your gonna roofie me
don't do me in the mens room
I gotta a reputation to withheld

If you wanna shock me
better me a big boy
Been around this block a few times before

Don't want your last name
cause you got a pretty face
Just direction back to your place

Don't gotta be good at this
just gotta go starfish
Bit the pillow and take it

Cause I've been waiting all night long
I've been waiting like Oh My God!
for the DJ to play my fucking song

I've been waiting all night long
I've been waiting like Oh My God!
Attention Bitches its time to dance.

Bitch you better WORK!
Moma x2

Cause sex it a game and I'm here to won

Yeah its a race and I'm a gold medalist"

He Said
"Its so easy, its easy, easy peasy
please believe me, all I needs an hour
and the internet

Its so easy, its easy, easy peasy
please believe me all I needs a guy
with low self respect... No offence.

Its so easy, its easy, easy peasy
penis squeezy, all I need to do
is wait by the exit

Its so easy, its easy, easy peasy
girl believe me, all I need to do
is look a bit desperate

Cause I've been waiting all night long
I've been waiting like Oh My God!
for the DJ to play my fucking song

I've been waiting all night long
I've been waiting like Oh My God!
Attention Bitches its time to dance.

Bitch you better WORK!
Moma x2

I know they call me a manwhore
cause I'm after the high score

I got it all sweetie but I always want
more and more and more and more

Withheld my reputation
Better be a big boy
Don't gotta be good at this
just gotta go starfish

Don't do me in the mens room
Been around this block a few times before
I'm gonna take it baby
all the way back to my place

Don't got a line on me face
My hair is looking great
I gots a skinny waist
I'm only 8 stone 8 x2

Bitch you better WORK!
Moma x2

Story
Track Name: This God of Love
I was fourteen years old
I was lying in bed
There was nothing I could do
It was true
I kept thinking to myself
What the fuck am I gonna do?
Oh ooh oh oh oh

Couldn’t tell my brother
My mother
My father
My sisters
My aunties
My uncles
My cousins
My friends
No one at school
I didn’t know what to do
I kept thinking to myself
What the fuck am I gonna do?
Oh ooh oh oh oh

Because I came from such a religious family
Was an altar boy
Went to a Christian Brothers’ School
And if I knew that means God knew
And God had some issues
I kept thinking to myself
What the fuck am I gonna do?
Oh ooh oh oh oh

This ain’t a song it’s an excuse for a hate crime
Cos every gay son knows what it means to be a bastard child

Cos I could walk out that door and marry a woman I don’t even like
But try to marry a man I love they fuckin’ lose their minds

Cos they said it
Yes they said it
No they said it
And I believed them
They told me that gays were sick sinners
Nothing more than abominations

Cos they said it
Yes they said it
No they said it
And you know they did
They told us the gays were the ones out touching kids
And it turns out the fuckin’ priest the one who did.

You see I don’t talk about God or religion much
Cos when I was growing up that stuff it really messed me up

I remember thinking

Ooooooooooo This God of love is sending us all straight to Hell x2

Cos if there is no God
Then no harm no foul
But if there is a God
And if he’s an angry God
Then you’re kinda screwed
So why not just get on your knees
And start to pray and beg
For forgiveness

And I thought to myself
Not a chance in Hell x3
Don’t wanna go to Hell

Not a chance in Hell x3
Don’t wanna go to Hell
Don’t wanna go to Hell

Cos I’d rather go to Hell for being an atheist
I’d rather go to Hell for being faithless
Rather go to Hell for being blasphemous
But never for love
But never for love

Cos I’d rather go to Hell for being an atheist
I’d rather go to Hell for being faithless
Rather go to Hell for being blasphemous
But never for love
But never for love

And if he’s an angry God
If he’s an angry God
I want to look into those angry eyes
I want to look into that angry face

And if he’s an angry God
If he’s an angry God
I want to look into those angry eyes
I want to look into that angry face

They told me God
Hates
Fags
But I’m one of them

They told me God
They told me God
Hates
Fags
But I fucking love them

Oooooooooooh This God of love is sending us all straight to Hell x2

You see I don’t talk about God or religion much
Cos when I was growing up that stuff it really messed me up
Track Name: Bible (Story)
Story
Track Name: Mother Mary
Oh Mother Mary
Watch over me
Cool my burning bones
Pray for me

Oh Saint Anthony
Won’t you come find me
I’m lost in the garden
With serpents chasing me

To tie me by my arms and legs
And hang me from a tree
To spill my blood
But my blood far from holy

God almighty
Have you fallen asleep
The flock have taken the farm
And now they’re hunting me

To tie me by my arms and legs
And hang me from a tree
Please don’t let them x3
Crucify me
Track Name: What Did I Come Home For?
What did I come home for
This isn’t working
What did I come home for
Ruined the whole damn day

And she said

Baby, baby, baby
Shut your mouth
Don’t you know some of us got to live in this town
The word is spreading and there are whispers about
So can you camp it all down

What did I come home for
It wasn’t to come out
What did I come home for
Me and my big mouth
And I said
It’s top heavy and I quit
The truth came out and the roof caved in
But now I’m fat and happy I gave them the slip
I got out but there’s others trapped in

It’s ok
It’s ok
I know
It’s ok
It’s ok
I’ll go

It’s ok
It’s ok
I know
It’s ok
It’s ok
I’ll go

What did I come home for
What did I come home for

Hate the sin she said but love the sinner
Don’t give me that religious bullshit Mom
That pope’s a fucking wanker
Cos I love my sin
And I love my sinners
Just chill the fuck out
It’s not a big deal
What’s left over from dinner

Can’t save my soul
It’s long been sold
And it’s as black as coal
So save your prayers
For someone who cares
Ain’t no God up there

Ain’t going to Heaven
They’ll never let me in
Ain’t going to Hell Mom
Cos it don’t exist
No it don’t exist
Track Name: Lonely Life
Its a lonely life x 2

She sat me down one day
She turned around and said
"Its a lonely life"

Its a lonely life x 2

Now you listen to me

Find a girl
settle out
make her you wife
Buy a house
have some kids
start a life

Because I've been thinking bout all night
and thinking bout all day
Who's gonna take care of my baby boy
when his old and grey?

Its a lonely life x 2

She sat me down one day
I turned around and said
" No that's a lonely life"

Its a lonely life x 2

Now you listen to me

So find a girl
lie to her
make her my wife
have some cover out child
and live a lie

Maybe every once in a while in the back set of a car
or a dodgy bar
Looking ass online at night well I guess that's why
they invented Gaydar

No that's a lonely life x 2

She sat me down one day
I turned around and said
" No that's a lonely life"

No that's a lonely life x 2

Well at lest I know who I am when I'm 18
and not when I'm like 45
Cause that would be a really lonely life

Track Name: Damien's Last Ballad
All my friends
think i'm someone else
and all lovers,
now hate themselves.

and as i spit
his taste out from my lips
I'm reminded he was only after one thing

Now I've never asked for a lot
but all i ever get is
depressed, lonliness,
and really bad habits

but all i ever wanted
was the love from some else
who was better and kinder
then myself

But I've always been
is a loud mouth fucking queen
egocentric alcohic
with low self-esteem

because every time i opens my mouth
all i seem to talk about
is a dick
going in to it

becuase i've been convinst (
every men i'll ever met
has been trying
to trick me into bed

but all i ever wanted
was love from someone else
who would turn around
and leave by myself

Nine guys in three weeks
and not one wishes to see me
am i a ransaid humanbin
or am i just that fucking easy

but they always turn out to be
strangers with history
cause when I pass them on the street
they look straight true me

they just flip me like a coin
right into there bed
but it dosn't matter what side i land on kid
becuase my tails always in to air and i love giving head

but all i ever wanted
was someone to love me
just enough to blends out
just as much i as hate myself

case all I do is pose and bitch, pose cause I'm a bitch, dance shout work it out
I'm gonna drink that, suck that, fuck that, oh yeah

pose and bitch, pose cause I'm a bitch, dance shout work it out
I'm gonna drink that, suck that, fuck that, oh yeah

But all I've ever wanted

All my friends
think i'm someone else
and all lovers,
now hate themselves.

Track Name: Hot Mess
Spin cuts me cold
Don’t run to mother
Any more
I just get drunk
On buses
With bad boys

Feeling
Hot
Underneath the collar
They sure do bitch a lot

With my
Exes lies

I’ll be fine

But what is this
Oh what is this
OMG
Hot Mess

He’s a what
Oh my God

Do you miss him though
Didn’t think so
You still love him right
Isn’t right though

Safe
You gotta save your face
Gotta keep your mouth shut
And those legs closed

Now his face
Is fading
And my drink
Is kicking in

I need more
Give me just four more

You know you can do this
You can live without him
Steve you’re gonna get through this
You don’t need him anyway

You know what man

Up and down town
Saying all types of shit
Like you a bad kisser
Lousy in bed
And have a tiny dick

Do you know what they say

Do you know what they say
About me

OMG that guy steve?
Hot Mess

Anyway

From the second he walked out that door
Jumped into bed with every stupid whore
I don’t need him
I don’t need him
I don’t need him
Anymore

Do you know what they say

Do you know what they say
About me

Didn’t think so
You still love him right
Isn’t right though
Track Name: "I'm trying to record an album!"
Story
Track Name: Sitting on a Coffin
I am the ex who got fat
I'm the one who never got over it
I'm the "Oh my god you had sex with that?"
Cos my face dropped when he walked he
and he asked "How have you been?"
"Have you put on weight?"
And he must have registered my heartache
Because I smug little smile crossed his face

So being the idiot that I am
I when out and got incredibly hammered
to deal with these emotions
and I wound up in a graveyard with a bottle of buckfast
and I thought to myself

Sittin' on a coffin wishing he were in it
Drunk in a graveyard the reason I'm not really with it
Every ex. every ex should disappear
no family, no new boyfriend, no happiness, no good career

Down in the deepest and darkest valley
They should sit and rot quietly
Never to make a sound, never to make a pip
Nor to be seen above ground or pass me in the street

Because every time they do
I end up say really stupid things
and makes an absolute twat of myself
and I say things like

I'm doing great with you
I'm flight high despite you
I join a gym but I never went
and I got a new love its wise and cigarettes

I'm doing great with you
I'm flight high despite you
I got new job but lose it
and I got a new car but crashed it

un, god what happened next? Oh yeah.

Out of my peripheral vision
I see Garda approaching
Garda one says "Hey are you OK son?"
Garda two says "Hey did you lose someone?"

And in my drunken state
I thought they were referring to ex
and was I "OK" post breakup
and I said to them

I'm doing great with him
I'm flight high despite him
I join a gym but I never went
and I got's a new love its wise and cigarettes

I'm doing great with him
I'm flight high despite him
I got new job but lose it
and I got a new car but crashed it

I'm doing GREAT!
I'm Fuckin' Fuckin' Fuckin' Fuckin' Fuckin' fantastic!

I'm doing FINE!
I'm sexy bitches like oh yes all the time,
now fuck it you nosily ass policeman

So after being chaste around a graveyard
for the bones for 20 minutes
I finally made my escape and woke up the next day
in my moms house
and all I think to myself was
fuck fuck fuck I'm fucked
Track Name: Its Not Weird w/ Tara Stacey
Steven- Its not weird you use my toothbrush
Because you always wash it in bowling water and salt

Tara- And its not weird I sleep in your bed
Though you feel free to fart then I'm in it

Steven- And its not weird
Tara - I've seen you nake
Steven- That was an accident
Tara- We just good friends

Steven- But maybe when we're 50
Tara- and both of us are still single
Steven- Maybe?
Tara- Maybe?
Steven/Tara- Maybe?

Steven- And its not weird that your mother

Track Name: Win One
All I really wanted
was to win at lest one
To not be the one leave wanting
pick up paces, when dumped

Cos all I really wanted
was to win at lest one

Yes I, I bet money
that I could make him cry
And with every tear fall
I admit it. I smiled

Cos all I really wanted
was for him to believe
that's there's move fish in the sea
but non like
not one like
me

So

All I really wanted
Yes all I really wanted
was to win
at lest
one
Track Name: He Makes The Weather
Bought a scarf of red and brown
like an apple left out to rot
Bought a ring for his brow
and it grabbed me as a went to go

Tangled is this hair of mine
with tricky fingers a let it slide
Looked into his deep Herzl eyes
felt a warm breeze through this tower of snow

Cause
he makes the weather x 3
And there no light where he is gone.

Bought a shirt of blue and grey
to wrap around him, to brighten his day
But not a sideway glance nor a smile
Just more coughing and frustrated sighs

Kiss him from his head to his toes
Said a small pray lay my head on his chest
Felt a heart beating slow
Close my eyes and I hope for the best

Cause
he makes the weather x 3
And there no light where he is gone.

You can do it x 2
Kiss me baby, kiss me better

You can do it x 2
Love me sweetie, love me better

You can do it x 2
Kiss me baby, kiss me better

You can do it x 2
Love me sweetie, love me better

Screaming for the top of my voice
don't take him his my only man
I kissed him as hard as I could
but it cold not care his illness
Oh this of conversion is driving me crazy
I don't know what to do his my only baby
I feel his hand in mine, the grime is loosening
I don't know what to do anymore
Fuck it! I'm losing him and oh

He makes the weather x 2
And there no light where he is gone.
And now my night are so cold
Alone in my tower of snow
and blow outside it blows
cold
Track Name: Who's The Man?
(Spoken)
We were watching the movie Philadelphia
I know the one where Tom Hanks contracts
and with the help of Denzel Washington
sues the company that i know wrongfully fires him
Well halfway through the movie and halfway though a bottle of wine
my dad pips up and said
"Hey do you think AIDS is a plague sent by god to kill off all the gay people?"
and I looked that my mother, who you may remember just found out I was in fart one if these gay people
and I said to her under my breath
"Hope not"

(Singing)
And asked me the question
"Are you gay in your dreams
and whats with all the dancing?
Why do you talk like that?"

And asked me the question
"Who's the mans?" x 3

And asked me the question
"Is saying the N word like say the word Faggot?
What kinda baby you gonna adopt?
So you just gotta work in topman for the rest of your life is that it?"

And asked me the question
"Who's the mans?" x 3

(Spoken)
and I said "Well we both are that kinda the definition"
and he said "No no no no no no no no no no no no... Who's the man?"
and was just sitting there thinking "God he really don't get it"
and then it dawned on me
The question my father was really asking
and I had the answer all locked and loaded
I was ready to say
"Well its a 50/50 give a take relationship is what I got going there you know what I mean?"
But I looked into my fathers eyes and realised
Hmmmm that not the right answer to this question
so I lied
So I said quiet calmly
"I'm the man"

Yes I'm the man
Yes I'm the man
I'm the man

And what did he says?
I'll tell you
He said

"Good good good good good good good."
Track Name: All Men Are Bastards
Oh It's like a broke hip
Every time I turn around in bed
I feel a cold space
where you used to rest your head

Its like a tick
every time I heard your name I flinch
and for get myself
Because

Some nights I lie awake thinking
how much I love you
And other nights I lie awake thinking
how much I hate you

Some nights I lie awake thinking
how much I love you
And other nights I lie awake thinking
how much I hate you

And other nights I'm robbed from sleep thinking
ways I can hurt you
And other night I don't believe it
I did not deserve you

And all that I'm leave with
in the aftermath of this disaster is
All men yes
All men are Bastards

And all that I've gained
from this heartbreak ad pain is the saying that
All men yes
All men are Bastards

Hey hey hey
Learn from my mistakes

Hits like a ton of bricks
My heart it sinks
my stomach falls sick
and I just can't think

Its like a mind switch
When I see you
I hit the skids and I do stupid thing
No

Cos when I do I'm confused
and I can st-stop st-st-stuttering
du-du-du-that then leads my to
d-d-ddrinking a-a-everything
and then when drunk to ch-ch-chance a wave
to see if you t-t-talk to you me
You double take, you hesitate, you turn away,
you'r points well made

And all that I'm leave in
is this lousy fucking t-shirt singing
All men yes
All men are Bastards

And all that I know
is point that your look was thrown is that
All men yes
All men are Bastards

Hey hey hey
Learn from my mistakes

And all that I'm leave in
And all that I that I know
And its all a case in point
And it all just goes to show
And all that I've surmised
after all this time
is the fault in fart is mine
and here the reason why

Cause all that I'm leave with
in the aftermath of this disaster is
All men yes
All men are Bastards

And all that I've gained
from this heartbreak ad pain is the saying that
All men yes
All men are Bastards

And all that I'm leave in
is this lousy fucking t-shirt singing
All men yes
All men are Bastards

And all that I know
is point that your look was thrown is that
All men yes
All men are Bastards

Hey hey hey
Learn from my mistakes
