Track Name: Fat Grrrls
Intro:
I wanna see
Fat grrrls! Just like me!

My double Ds
Don’t fit in your tiny Ts
I’ve got hips and I’ve got thighs
To fit in skinny jeans I’d have to die, because

Pre-Chorus 1:
I won’t unload my junk
I’ll take up space all I want
I’m just your average girl
Living in your below average world

Chorus:
I wanna see
Fat grrrls just like me
I wanna see
Fat grrrls just like me

I don’t hate other girls
Judge not the lines or the curves
We’re all sisters in the fight
Fashion is a girl’s right, because

Pre-Chorus 2:
Something’s wrong with all of you
Plus size! That’s my attitude!
I’m just your average girl
Living in your below average world

Chorus
Verse 1

Pre-Chorus 3:
I’ve got the solution!
We need a revolution!
When the mannequins start to diet
We need a fat grrrl riot!

Extended Chorus:
I wanna see
Fat grrrls on TV
I wanna see
Fat grrrls in movies
I wanna see
Fat grrrls just like me
I wanna see
Fat grrrls on magazines
I wanna see
Fat grrrls just like me

Outro:
We want variety!
Don’t tokenize or patronize me!
I am happy!
I am healthy!
So don’t you go judging me!
Track Name: More Than We See
She turns the dial, looking for that sound
She knows the voice well, only she can tell, if you
Spin the words right, make her would go ‘round

She’s too serious for this kind of play
Hiding in her mind, so lost she can’t find
Herself believing she’d be better that way

Pre-Chorus:
Somewhere there’s a secret verse
And a perfect rhyme
Make her heart beat in time

Chorus:
She turns the radio on
As she sings along
Her guard falls down
That’s when she gets to be
More than we see

She hears that voice, it’s calling her home
Could she more than, an imaginary fan
Please keep singing, so she’s not so alone

Pre-Chorus 2:
And maybe it’s enough
And maybe she’ll be fine
Will her heart will beat in time?

Chorus
Chorus

Pre-Chorus 2

Pre-Chorus 3:
And if you listen close
You’ll hear the only line
To make her heart beat in time
Track Name: Job Hunting
I got a rejection letter in today
It said you’re not qualified
“You’re just not enough” that’s what they say
I guess things just don’t go my way

I got a call the other day
They said you’re over-qualified
“We’d have to give you benefits” that’s what they say
No matter what I do, it’s all work and no pay

I got

Chorus:
Pink slips and pink collar jobs
Keep on fighting against all odds
I'm over-educated and underpaid
Trying to make a decent wage

I got an interview yesterday
I knew I was in, until I heard
“You know you’ve got a great ass”
They didn’t care I graduated top of my class

I got a job, yesterday
They said I had a great future there
But then the economy crashed
And they tossed my out with last night’s trash

All I got is

Chorus

Chorus 2:
Endless searching, unemployment lines
Fill out this form, pay a fine
My oh my, it puts me in a rage
Trying to make a decent wage

Track Name: I Don't Want To Be (A Rock & Roll Star)
Come here, they said come right here
We'll give you everything that you need, if you
Sign here, sign right here
We promise you'll be free, in the

Pre-Chorus:
Camera lights
Overexposure
Headline delight

Chorus:
I, I, I don't want to be a
Rock, rock, rock & roll star
No, no, no
I, I, I don't want to be a
Rock, rock, rock & roll star
No, no, no

I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be
I don't, I don't, I don't
I don't, I don't, I don't, I don't wanna be
I don't, I don't, I don't

Happy now, are you happy now?
We gave you everything that you need
But you, you don't want it now
Didn't say this would be free, in the

Track Name: You Won't See Me Again
Oh how you loved me
With a passion that would win
It’s true you told me forever
Yours, I would have happily been

As time passed, it got more difficult
I rarely got to hear your voice
And the fears I had, I missed you so
You made your final choice

Chorus:
You won’t see me again
You won’t see me at all
The pain that you caused me
Has lost me to the fall

I came to, from the song in my head
Afriad you had something to tell me
You said, “I don’t love you like that anymore.”
“I've got a new girl, and I’m so sorry.”

Betrayed and dizzy, my heart is broken
I scream anger at your name
As my soul lies here to bloody tears
And my eyes, they cry to shame

Chorus

Maybe we’ll pass on the street
You’ll act cool as you shuffle your feet
And I'll laugh and try to pretend
You didn't exist in the end

Chorus
