"Kat struts around the stage like a bat out of hell, kicks higher than Shaft and whips her hair back and forth like Willow Smith."- Ashley Woods, Huffington Post

Track Name: Scream
1, 2, 3, 4!

Tonight we're gonna have a good time
Tonight we're gonna have a ball
We're here to lower inhibitions
Tonight you're gonna get it all

We have no troubles here
Come a little closer
We love to have you near
Put your hands in the air
We're so excited
And we'll take you there
Let me hear you scream!

Tonight we're gonna play our hearts out
Tonight we're gonna get you laid
Confuse your sexual orientation
Tonight we'll lead the parade

We have no troubles here
We're only getting started
So grab another beer
Put your drinks in the air
We're getting shit-faced and we don't care
Let me hear you scream!

Tonight we're gonna have a good time
Tonight we're gonna have a ball
We really want to get to know you
Tonight you're gonna get it all

We have no troubles here
Come a little closer
We love to have you near
Put your hands in the air
We're so excited
And we'll take you there
Let me hear you scream!
Track Name: It All Goes On Without You
It All Goes on Without You

I got your meat
I got your bone
Come and lick a little microphone
Don't you dare tell me, "Leave it alone"
If you're choking on the wire, I'll be humming to the dial tone

Gluing feathers to your arm doesn't make you a bird
The religion of your diction is a little absurd
If you twitter in my ear, I'm gonna give you my word
That the thrust of my wing will be the last thing you heard

Please
I can't take anymore
Leave
Good-bye, mon amour
The point I'm trying to get to
Is darling, it all goes on without you

Your service rendered's running up my bill
You're a holy maven of the cheapest thrill
I'm a roller coaster climbing up that hill
I may never see the sunrise, but it's sure as shit you never will

Please
I can't take anymore
Leave
Good-bye, mon amour
The point I'm trying to get to
Is darling, it all goes on without you

You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on

Come on

You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
You-oo
You-oo
It all goes on without you
Track Name: Burn
Wear with pride
Every scar collected
Every time your knife
Took a liking to my vital signs
But I will not be found wanting

Hold me down
Try it, I dare you
Hold me down
I'll never let you
Cheat me
And beat me
And try to defeat me
And watch as it comes back to you

You got no right, sir
I'll soldier on
You got no right, sir
I've just begun
You got no right, sir
I'm on to you
Fire is catching
I burn, you burn, too

Oh, do not
Underestimate the grit I got
In store
I will not forget what I have come here for
Your days are numbered

Hold me down
You have no power
Hold me down
This is my hour
All of your horses
And all of your men
Will fall at the force of my hand

You got no right, sir
I'll soldier on
You got no right, sir
I've just begun
You got no right, sir
I'm on to you
Fire is catching
I burn, you burn, too

Left
Right
Left
Right
Left
Right, right, right

I may be bleeding
But I'm not retreating
And you'll never take me alive

You got no right, sir
I'll soldier on
You got no right, sir
I've just begun
You got no right, sir
I'm on to you
Fire is catching
I burn, you burn, too

I burn
I burn
Fire is catching
I burn, you burn, too
Track Name: Sing Girl Sing
If I could split myself in two
I would be perfect for you
If I could split myself in two
I would be perfect for you
But I'm not ready to break
And this is more than I can take

If I could split myself in two
I would be perfect for you
If I could split myself in two
I would be perfect for you
But I'm not ready to break
And this is more than I can take

If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me

Happiness is something you fight for
And your love is something I'd die for
Over and over, you're forcing me down to the floor
But you've taken all I've got
And I can't give you anymore

If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
Maybe I
Maybe I
Maybe I'd be happy

If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
That would be enough for me
If you would say to me
Sing, girl, sing
Track Name: Get it Together
Starry eyes
You're looking up too high
To the skies
Before you learn to fly
Lie to yourself
And no one's gonna notice you
No one is going to notice you

Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take

Even as you're ascending
You feel as though you're losing control
What's your roll?
Kamikaze demons will pick at the cracks exposed
I never said it was an easy road

Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take

Why don't you reach in
To begin?

Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Get it together
We're gonna get better with every step
Step we take
Track Name: Red Alert
Thick in this dive
Tall boy in my hand
Pushed skin-tight to electric flesh pulsating to the band
I feel your body heat behind me
Magnetic current pulls you deep into me

Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Slam you up against the wall
And kiss you till it hurts
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Come on, make me wake up wearing nothing but your t-shirt
Your t-shirt

Antici…pation
Give in
After I part my lips you won't know where you've been
Intoxication bound by slick skin
I close my eyes
Decide to let you in
Let you in

Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Slam you up against the wall
And kiss you till it hurts
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Come on, make me wake up wearing nothing but your…

I move
You stir
The room
Is all a blur
Lost control
Irresistible
I've got your soul

Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Slam you up against the wall
And kiss you till it hurts
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Come on, make me wake up wearing nothing but your t-shirt
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Slam you up against the wall
And kiss you till it hurts
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Come on, make me wake up wearing nothing but your t-shirt
Nothing but your t-shirt
Nothing but your t-shirt
Nothing but your shirt
Aw, come on
Give me some
This is a red alert!
Track Name: Don't Stop Loving Me
If we obliviated
And we lost all our memory
I'd still find a way to hide you deep inside my mind
Oh I, my stupid pride
Because I die every time my longing arms let you pass me by
Oh, why

Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wondering

How long did we have it, honey?
I didn't count the days
But I recall the finish left me standing in the hurricane
Oh, how the piano played
Sorry for the river but the rhythm tends to make me lame
Only have myself to blame

Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wonder-wondering
Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wondering

I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy
Asking him to love her
Don't play coy
It's me, remember
When you told me stay forever?
And I know I'm the one that ran away
But naive hearts will make mistakes
And every single minute is a moment we can turn it around
Around

Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wonder-wondering
Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wonder-wondering
Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wonder-wondering
Don't stop loving me
And we won't waste forever wondering what could have been
Track Name: When I Wake
We're climbing mountains made of wool
We're racing edelweiss against an ivory moon
We fly so high
Nightingale, black wing
We swim ten thousand leagues under the sea

When I wake up I want to go back to sleep
Cuz I wake up and you're not next to me
Oh, and dreams are so deceiving
But I want to keep believing
That you'll be beside me sleeping when I wake
When I wake

Cast off into the glow, we sail the tide
A carnival of carousels
A mirror maze, we hide
We chase after graveyard deserts in search of our bones
Kept inside a sacred tomb
You'll never let me go

When I wake up I want to go back to sleep
Cuz I wake up and you're not next to me
Oh, and dreams are so deceiving
But I have to stop believing
That you'll be beside me sleeping when I wake

Eyes wide open
I am frozen
Like a demon crushing my chest
You're the reason I can't get out of bed

When I wake up I want to go back to sleep

When I wake up I want to go back to sleep
Cuz I wake up and you're not next to me
Oh, and dreams are so deceiving
But it hurts to stop believing
That you'll be beside me sleeping when I wake

When I wake
(Didn't you tell me that you'd never, ever leave me alone?)
When I wake
(Didn't you tell me that you'd never, ever leave me alone?)
When I wake
(Didn't you tell me that you'd never, ever leave me alone?)
When I wake
(Didn't you tell me?)
Track Name: Reckless Boys
I like boys with cracks in the windshield of their old Mercedes Benz
I like boys who always take their benefits with friends
When you call me over to your parents' house
I have to sneak in
I don't know where I'm going
And I don't know where you've been

Let's go skinny-dipping
Down by the docks while the world is sleeping
Take some black and whites
Down by the beach where the storm is rolling in
Reckless boys like you
Are always reckless with my heart
But I don't care
We go sailing in the dark

Let me tell ya

I like boys who serenade me with the fire alarm
I like boys who make up for their history with charm
When you show up late
You can't see straight
You play your violin
I might be mad in the morning
But tonight we live in sin

Let's go skinny-dipping
Down by the docks while the world is sleeping
Take some black and whites
Down by the beach where the storm is rolling in
Reckless boys like you
Are always reckless with my heart
But I don't care
We go sailing

Oh
Oh, where did my head go?
You take me for everything
And you leave me with _____

Let's go skinny-dipping
Down by the docks while the world is sleeping
Take some black and whites
Down by the beach where the storm is rolling in
Reckless boys like you
Are always reckless with my heart
But I don't care
We go sailing
I don't care
We go sailing
I don't care
We go sailing in the dark
Track Name: You Don't Have to Be Alone Anymore
You've got nothing to show for
The plans that you made for your life
And you can't take the tears back
You sweat out while you tried to make it by

Praying that someday you'll see the light
Praying you can get some sleep tonight
Looking for the other side of green
Looking for the end to justify those means

You don't have to be alone anymore
Can't you feel me knocking down your door?
Don't you think you've had enough?
Quit acting so
You don't have to be alone anymore

You've got nothing to show for
The plans that you made for your life
And the knots just get tighter
The harder you try to untie

Clutching at the surface for some air
But the harder you kick the quicksand sucks you there
Laying down beside despair
I've got something you need to hear

You don't have to be alone anymore
Can't you feel me knocking down your door?
Don't you think you've had enough?
Quit acting so
You don't have to be alone anymore

The only failure would be to quit
Brush it off
Learn from it
(Oh)
Feel me at your door
(Oh)
I'll be the light in the dark
(Oh)
Deep down inside of your heart
You know
You know

You don't have to be alone anymore
(Have to be alone)
Can't you feel me knocking down your door?
(Feel me at your door)
Don't you think you've had enough?
Quit acting so
You don't have to be alone anymore
You don't have to be alone anymore
You don't have to be alone anymore
You don't
You don't
You don't have to be alone anymore
Track Name: Young America
Here's to our mission
To drink and discover
We've got plastic souls
We are Young America
The city's alive
It's a drug in disguise
And with glistening eyes
We turn onto the night

Here's to evolution
Jukebox banging love songs
We lose our minds
As they turn into fight songs
Fight, fight, fight, fight, alright!

We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America

Here's to our mission
To drink and discover
We've got paper hearts
We are Young America
We can drink (so we drink)
We can fight (so we fight)
And we do it with fire
As we blaze through the night

We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America

Come here
I just want your number
I don't need your name
I just want your number
I don't need your name
I just want your number
I don't need your name
Your eyes are like fire
And I'm drawn to the flame

We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
We're young (YOUNG)
So young (YOUNG)
We're young
Young America
