Work It Out
by BeTh isBell


There’s a melody in my head,
I can’t sleep now or go to bed,
Work it out, I got to work it out (yeah now)
And in the morning when the light first comes,
Got a feeling now that she’ll be done,
Work it out, I got to work it out (yeah now)
I got to work it out, … I got to work it out.

I don’t know where she’s gonna go,
Just got to catch her, got’ta feel that flow,
Work it out, I got to work it out (yeah)
Beautiful and so am I,
Come together, let the people cry,
Work it out, I got to work it out (yeah)
I got to work it out, … I got to work it out.

“Ain’t no reason now for you to lie, Ain’t no reason now for me to cry,
Just the way I feel, the way she grooves tonight” (x2) (yeah)
The way she grooves tonight …

Bleed
by BeTh isBell


Sitting in this darkness,
Smoke my weed,
And you don't understand,
What it means to me.
Hiding in the shadows,
With my disease,
And I hope you don't catch,
What's inside of me.

Bucket full of kerosene,
All over me,
Johnny with a match now,
Guess it's time to bleed.
And the mushroom lady,
Says drink that tea,
It'll make you feel better,
When it's time to bleed.

Track Name: Words
Words
by BeTh isBell


Your words are killing my soul,
You stand up on high, just to make me feel low,
And I give you my love, but you take all control,
And your words, are killing my soul.

It's hell to be all and ever want more,
The prices you pay for your dreams are paved with your woe,
And I may be a fool for all that you know,
But these dreams that you kill in my head still never let go,

And your words are killing my soul,
You stand up on high, motherfucker, just to make me feel low,
And I may be a fool for all that you know,
But your words, are killing my soul.
Yeah.


And I don't understand why it tortures you so,
You claw and you claw and you scratch 'til I'm down in your hole,
You tear down my love with your lack of a soul,
But the prizes you want me to prize only melt down to gold.

And your words are killing my soul,
You stand up on high, motherfucker, just to make me feel low,
You tear down my love with your lack of a soul,
And your words are killing my soul,
And your words, your words, your words are killing my soul,
Yeah.

Track Name: Hometown (Reprise)
Hometown (Reprise)
by BeTh isBell


Vonnegut can see my twisted future, from my front porch,
he wrote it down, he wrote it down,
Vonnegut can see my twisted future, from my front porch,
he wrote it down, in my hometown,
Thomas Edison invented the lightbulb, in my hometown,
we light one up, and burn it down,

And all my dreams have died in this city,
Schenectady! Schenectady!
The city that lights and hauls the world,
The city that lights and hauls the world,
The city that lights and hauls the world,
And all our crap to you!

Things they never change, they stay the same, in my hometown,
It’s burning down, to the ground (x2)
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
in my hometown, and burn it down
The world is tripping and I’m not getting any younger, so I light one up,
and my hometown is burning now.

Shine On
by BeTh isBell


Life is a test of my angel soul,
And we all have a light that shines,
So even when it’s cloudy, I still believe in you,
And inside this soul, I feel fine,

And there ain’t no reason for us to ever cry,
‘Cause we’re all big stars in this great earth & sky,
So take your light, and

Shine on, ... shine on, ... shine on! (x3)
Ah people, (you) got to take your light and shine on,
Let everybody around you see the star that you are,
And shine on!


We’re all big stars in this universe,
And everybody has a light that shines,
We’re all big stars in this universe,
And inside this world, I feel fine,

And there ain’t no reason for us to ever cry,
‘Cause we’re all big stars in this great earth & sky,
So take your light, and

Shine on, ... shine on, ... shine on! (x3)
Come on people, got to take your light and shine on,
You got to take your light,
Show everybody the star that you are,
You got to take your light,
Oh people, got to take your light,
Ah people, got to take your light, and
Shine on, ... shine on, ... shine on!
Shine on, ... shine on, ... shine on!
