Track Name: The Bed Is Cold
"The Bed Is Cold"
© 2011 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
Words & Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
You feel like you'll never break free
and you're a prisoner of me
I keep you away from the life that you want

Verse 2:
It's scary to think about it
The murder you want to commit
could go undetected if I don't tell no one

Lead In 1:
The ceiling is falling down on me
I keep one eye open, open when I sleep

Chorus:
The bed is cold and I've known it for a long time
It's getting old, The bed is cold
The bed is cold and I've known it for a long time
The truth be told, The bed is cold

Verse 3:
I wake with a chill each morning
Has nobody seen the warning
Or are these delusions imaginary

Verse 4:
The lock that I found on the storm door
A silhouette the moves across the floor
My every suspicion corrupts my sanity

Lead In:
Four walls are closing in on me
The air is freezing thirty two degrees


(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
Though I have been looking for it everywhere
The feeling is gone but there's a ghost of me there


(Repeat Chorus)

Graveyard
© 2010 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
Words and Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick


You left your black candles burning
And your tarot cards on the floor!
You left the window wide open and forgot to lock the door

The way you ran out of here
I'd say it's perfectly clear that I've seen the last of you!
Did you evaporize? Now your immortalized...
Another mystery... without a clue

So let me tell you what I'm gonna do
Erect a temple in the absence of you!
Believe me baby oh where you left my heart was...

CHORUS:
In the Graveyard... full of plastic flowers
In the Graveyard... no after hours
In the Graveyard... I'm buried next to you!
I'm in the graveyard. (look out, look out)
I'm in the graveyard.

You left the portrait you painted up above the fireplace.
The answering machine message is gonna need erased!

You could have left me a note, or some Morrissey quote like...
"You Just Haven't Earned It Yet Baby!"
Then at least I would know you didn't love me so...
I could get over you... But I'm not through

So let me tell you what I'm gonna do
Erect a temple in the absence of you!
Believe me baby oh where you left my heart was...

(Repeat Chorus)

Spoken Break Down:
And now I lay you down to sleep...
I pray your soul will rot in hell

(Repeat Chorus)

All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by Carly Emerick,
Hoyt Emerick and Georgios Garganopoulos

Intro:
Serial Serial Killer
Serial Serial Killer

Verse 1:
I know what you are but I love you anyway
I know what you do to keep the demons at bay
I know where you go when you leave me late at night
But I don’t want to know the answer if it means that I am right

Lead In:
Deep in the heart of darkness
Where terror turns into a dark delight
How can I fight when my hands are tied?
A willing victim on a starless night

Chorus:
Am I in love with a serial killer? (Am I in love with a serial killer?)
Am I in love with a serial killer? (Am I in love, am I in love?)
He comes out at night every move so precise. He's a chiller! (Serial Killer)
I have to obey or I’ll end up his prey. He's a thriller! (Serial Killer)

Verse 2:
It’s buried in your eyes but no one else can see
You don’t realize your secret’s safe with me
Laying in your arms and running out of time
I go searching for the victims of an uncommitted crime

Lead In 2:
Deep in the heart of darkness
Awake inside a reoccurring dream
I don’t know whether to stay or go
Where silence turns into a deadly scream

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
You spend a lot of time in the garage
I spend a lot of time with myself at odds
You won’t say where it is you’ve got to go
I wonder if I really want to know

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-lib

Track Name: Mistake
"Mistake”
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
Words & Music By Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse One:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear
It's sad to think how much of my time was wasted on you
I find it downright laughable that I loved you

Lead In:
But you used me from the start
Playing games with my sacred heart
And I'm where I should be now
Well darling I got by somehow

Chorus:
You were a mistake (mistake) I had to learn from
A mistake (mistake) A mistake I had to make
I deserve someone better than you

Verse Two:
I always used to see your face in the crowd
and think of how you let me down
I let myself play victim, I was your clown
You always used to keep me waiting
You had me dangling by a string
All alone on Friday night waiting for the phone to ring

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

(Repeat Lead In)
(Repeat Chorus)

End:
The only three words that you never said were the ones I ached to hear
But now I could care less about you dear

Verse 1:
I overdosed on a Saturday night
In the rear view mirror there’s flashing lights
I ditched the cop and I ran from the car
Got to the concert and I hit bar!

Hold on hold on, cuz the beat has got it
That slide guitar just drives me wild
Hold on hold on, cuz I feel one coming
Turn it up cuz I like it loud

Don’t try to save me cuz I ain’t coming back
You know want it, it’s a matter of fact
Rock & Roll Heart Attack

The ink is drying on my “Crue” tattoo
Those leather pants are looking good on you
We’re making out in the bathroom stall
Security cameras caught it all

Lead In 2:
Hold on hold on, cuz the beat has got it
Exploding pyrotechnics too
Hold on hold on, cuz I feel one coming!
My heart is pounding like a drum for you

Chorus 2:
Rock & Roll Heart Attack
Don’t try to save me cuz I ain’t coming back
You know want it, it’s a matter of fact

Rock & Roll Heart Attack
Too much Coke and too much Jack
You know you love it, it’s a matter of fact
Rock & Roll Heart Attack
Rock & Roll Heart Attack

Bridge Rap:
I’ve got a fresh pack of cigarettes I’m dancing on the floor
Living in this moment like I never lived before
And everyone surrounds me as I do the bump and grind
Hot boys and hot girls going out of their minds

Rock, Rock, Rock, Rock, Rock & Roll Heart Attack! ( x4)

Chorus 3:
Rock & Roll Heart Attack
Nothing can save you cuz you ain’t coming back
You know want it, it’s a matter of fact
Rock & Roll Heart Attack

Rock & Roll Heart Attack
Too much Coke and too much Jack
You know you love it, it’s a matter of fact
Rock & Roll Heart Attack

Oh every time I think of you and I
I sparkle like a diamond that shimmers in the light
You're so good to me how can this be real?

(Fall) against my skin and when you're finished I want it again

A circumstance that no one can deny
We're written in the book of love, no we don't have to try

(Try) all the time, it seems like you can almost read my mind
(Kiss) me again, cause your love is a race I have to win

(Repeat Chorus)

“I Don’t Know How To Say Goodbye”
© 2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
Words & Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
I don’t know how I’m gonna live without you
You know how much I care about you
You fell apart like a broken toy
But the thought that you’re gone forever leaves me destroyed

Lead In 1:
My hands shake, my heart breaks but still I try (still I try)
to let you go into the light
I feel weak and helpless, choked up inside (choked up inside)
I don’t know how to say goodbye

Chorus:
I don’t know how to say goodbye (don’t know goodbye)
I don’t know how to say goodbye
Don’t know how to say goodbye

Verse 2:
I don’t know why I feel so damn numb
when I could cry a river and then some
Our time together was a precious gift
But I never could imagine it would end like this

Lead In 2:
My hands shake, my heart breaks but still I try (still I try)
To let you go in the fading light
I feel weak and helpless, choked up inside (choked up inside)
I don’t know how to say goodbye

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:
I will miss you always in my dark despair
Yet I know you’re no longer there
The hands of time are spinning to you everyday
And every moment gets taken away, gets taken away

(Repeat Chorus)

Track Name: A Lonely Love (ft. Timeface Project)
"A Lonely Love"
© 2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) & G. GARGANOPOULOS
All Rights Reserved. Words & Music by Carly Emerick,
Hoyt Emerick and Georgios Garganopoulos

Verse 1:

Can you meet me in the city after dark? 

Somewhere discreet out of the way by the park

I need to tell you something you don’t know

A secret I’ve just got to let go

Lead In: 

I’ve been waiting in the rain for the subway train

And the whole world stops tonight 

There’s no magical solution that could make this right

Chorus: 

It’s a lonely love and there’s nothing anybody can do

It’s a lonely love when I cannot connect with you

A lonely love, a lonely love

Verse 2:

So let me start by saying I love you 

There are sometimes I get a little confused

Am I making all my choices selfishly?

Do I live my life for you or for me?

Lead In 2:

I’ve been selling all my dreams for a house

on memory lane that fail apart 

There’s no magical solution that could mend my heart

(Repeat Chorus)

Bridge:

I was the only one who was trying to put up a fight

I was the only one who believed that we could get it right

So don’t just sit there and look surprised

Cause your love left me long before I realized
I realize, I realize

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad-lib:

Alone in love is lonely

Alone in love is lonely

Alone in love is lonely
A very lonely love

"Select Game"
©2012 MRIX MUZIK (ASCAP) All Rights Reserved.
Words & Music By Carly Emerick, Hoyt Emerick & Dave Greening

Verse 1:
Are you gonna play me for a fool
or are you gonna treat me like a queen?
Are you gonna break all the rules
or are you gonna keep it all routine?

I've been on the outer skirts of town,
baby there is nothing I ain't seen
Do you want to make me you touch down
Or do you wanna jump right over me?

Chorus:
Select game, now tell me baby what's it gonna be
Select game, tell me baby how you're gonna play me

Verse 2:
Are you gonna use me for a night
or is it a lifetime that you seek?
When you kiss and roll the dice
are you sure you're on a winning streak?

I could be your trophy on the shelf and not admit to my defeat
Or you could be the one to back down, disengage your soldiers and retreat

(Repeat Chorus)

Ad lib: Select game, Select Game

(Repeat Chorus)

The music keeps me alive, night falls and pulses they rise
Somewhere out there in the dark...

Your reputation's a lot like mine,
No invitations required this time
I'm the artist and you're my muse
I've gotta lot of body sculpting to do!

And you've got me moving like Baryshnikov
This party's been jumping since you walked in the room
The sound of my heart is going boom boom boom!

Let me catch you up to speed
I’ve got everything thing you need
And we can really have it all

Let me take you around the world
Show you off like a geisha girl
Cameras flashing everywhere we go

Lead In:
We’re on the cover of Rolling Stone
And the critics just love us
We’re on the red-eye to Roam
Martini lunch in the south of France
Got a midnight performance for the president

Chorus:
We’re like a story in a magazine
And it’s all about love and it reads like a dream
We’re like a story in a magazine
And it’s got all the glamor of a Hollywood scene
We’re like a story in a magazine
We’re like a story in a magazine

Verse 2:
Welcome to the new elite
Catching glances on the street
Our billboard’s plastered on the city walls

A little scandal never fails
to help us boost our record sales
We do three encores at every show

Streaming live from cyberspace
Candy Apple Blue and Timeface
On the cover of Italian Vogue
And who are we wearing? We don’t even know!

Words & Music by Carly Emerick & Hoyt Emerick

Verse 1:
You made a clean get away, said your sorry you couldn't stay
Left in the dress I bought for this, Is this another one of your tricks?

Lead In 1:
Is this another one of your games?
Like when you introduce me and forget me name!

Chorus:
There's magic when we kiss, but your show then takes a twist
Houdini answer this, Is this another one of your tricks?

A box of cherry chocolates,
Is this another one of your tricks?
A diamond-studded bracelet,
Is this another one of your tricks?

Verse 2:
You said that we had a plan, on an island in the sand
You'd put us up at the Ritz, Is this another one of your tricks?

Lead In 2:
Cause it sounds like another game!
Your disappearing act drives me insane!

(Repeat Chorus)

Spoken: Thought you were there & then you were gone!

Verse 3:
You're hiding cards up your sleeve,
Pulling rabbits out of hats should I believe
that you're crying now cause I called it quits...
Is this another one of your tricks?

Lead In 3:
Yeah it's always another game!
No matter what you say it ends the same!
