Pink Songtext: Catch 22

„Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen and welcome to Pink Airlines. We hope your flight is enjoyable and our flight attendants are here to insure your ride is as pleasant as possible. Seat backs and tray tables must be in the upright and locked position during the take-off and landing. All carry-on luggage must be stowed in an over-head compartment or under the seat in front of you…“

Waiting on a ticket
‚Cause you’re looking for the ride
You’re feeling on top
‚Cause you’re flying through the sky
You wanna have your cake
And you wanna eat it too
Everybody’s always pointing fingers at you
You’re damned if you do
You’re damned if you don’t
We’re always doing all the things
That we say we won’t

Here we go
We’re riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We’re jumping off the wings
We’re going round in circles
It’s a catch 22
Yes, we’re flying round in circles
It’s a catch 22
yes were rocking round in circles
it’s the catch 22

„If you are seated in an emergency exit aisle and feel as though you are unable
or unwilling to assist in case of an emergency, please notify a flight
attendant immediately. All eletrical equipment, including cell phones, 2-way
pagers, portable CD players, laptops, etc. should remain in the off position
until the pilot notifies us that we areat a safe flying altitude of 10,000 ft.“

Looking from the outside
You’re always looking in
You think you fixed the problem
‚Til it comes right back again
And life seems like a trap
You’re trying to get out
You’re searching for you cheese
‚Cause you feel like mighty mouse
You’re damned if you don’t
You’re damned if you do
You’ve seen all the signs
But you haven’t got a clue

Here we go
We’re riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We’re jumping off the wings
We’re going round in circles
It’s a catch 22
Yes, we’re flying round in circles
It’s a catch 22
yes were rocking round in circles
it’s the catch 22

You are in
You are in
You are in  for the ride of you life

Here we go
We’re riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We’re jumping off the wings
We’re going round in circles
It’s a catch 22
Yes, we’re flying round in circles
It’s a catch 22
yes were rocking round in circles
it’s the catch 22

„We realize you had many choices and on behalf of all of us at Pink Airlines, we’d like to thank you for flying with us. We hope you have a wonderful stay wherever your destination may be, and remember be careful when retrieving your items, as during the flight they may have shifted and might fall on you or your neighbor’s head and knock you the fuck out.“

Here we go
We’re riding on a whim
Connecting with a rendezvous
Here we go
We’re jumping off the wings
We’re going round in circles
It’s a catch 22
Yes, we’re flying round in circles
It’s a catch 22
yes were rocking round in circles
it’s the catch 22

Pink Songtext: Lonely Girl

I can remember
The very first time I cried
How I wiped my eyes
And buried the pain inside
All of my memories
Good and bad that’s passed
Didn’t even take the time to realize

Staring at the cracks in the walls
‚Cause I’m waiting for it all
to come to an end
Still I curl up right under the bed
‚Cause it’s takin‘ over my head
All over again

Do you even know who you are?
I guess I’m trying to find
A borrowed dream or a superstar?
I want to be a star
Is life good to you, or is it bad?
I can’t tell anymore
Do you even know what you have?

Lying awake
Watching the sunlight
How the birds will sing
As I count the rings around my eyes
Constantly pushing
The world I know aside
I don’t even feel the pain
I don’t even want to try

I’m looking for a way to become
The person that I dreamt up
When I was 16
Oh, nothing is ever enough
Ooh, baby it ain’t enough
For what it may seem

Do you even know who you are?
I’m still trying to find
A borrowed dream or a superstar?
Everybody wants to be…
Is life good to you, or is it bad?
I can’t tell anymore
Do you even know what you have?
No

Sorry girl
Tell a tale for me
‚Cause I’m wondering
How you really feel
I’m a lonely girl
I’ll tell a tale for you
‚Cause I’m just trying to make
All my dreams come true

Do you even know who you are?
Oh yeah, yeah
A borrowed dream or a superstar?
Oh, I wanted to be a star
Is life good to you, or is it bad?
I can’t tell, I can’t tell anymore
Do you even know what you have?
I guess not, oh, I guess not

Do you even know who you are?
Oh, I’m trying to find
A rising dream, or a falling star?
Oh, I have all these dreams
Is life good to you, or is it bad?
I can’t tell anymore
Do you even know what you have?
Oh, no, no

Do you even know who you are?
A rising dream, or falling star?
Is life good to you, or is it bad?

Pink Songtext: Gone To California

Goin‘ to California,
to live in the summer sun
The streets are made of silver
I’m like a rabbit on the run.

Philadelphia freedom
well, it’s not like you have heard
The city of brotherly love
is full of pain and hurt

Going to California
to find my pot of gold

Corruption on every corner
hustlers selling sweets
Baby is home crying
while her momma’s on the street.

Everybody’s dying
have you heard the news today?
A woman in north philly is mourning
the bullet took another son away

I’m going to California
I’m going far, far away

Going to California, yes
to resurrect my soul
The sun is always shining, shining
or at least that’s what I’m told

Goin‘ to California
there’s a better life for me, yeah

Goin‘ to California
I’ll write and tell you what I see

Goin‘ to California
somebody say a prayer for me

Pink Songtext: My Vietnam

Daddy was a soldier,
He taught me about freedom,
Peace and all the great things,
That we can take advantage of.

Once I fed the homeless
I’ll never forget
The look upon their faces as I
Treated them with respect

This is my Vietnam
I’m at war
Life keeps on dropping bombs
And I keep score

Mama was a lunatic
She liked to push my buttons
She said I wasn’t good enough
But I guess I wasn’t trying

Never liked school that much
They tried to teach me better
But I just wasn’t hearing it
Because I thought I was already pretty clever

This is my Vietnam
I’m at war
Life keeps on dropping bombs
And I keep score

This is my Vietnam
I’m at war
Life keeps on dropping bombs
And I keep score

What do you expect from me
What am I not giving you
What could I do for you
To make me okay in your eyes

Chorus: This is my vietnam
I’m at war
They keep on droppin bombs
And I keep score

Pink Songtext: Don’t Let Me Get Me

I never win first place
I don’t support the team
I can’t take direction
And my socks are never clean
Teachers dated me
My parents hated me
I was always in a fight
‚Cause I can’t do nothing right

Everyday I fight a war against the mirror
Can’t take the person staring back at me

I’m a hazard to myself
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy
It’s bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don’t want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

I wanna be somebody else

L.A. told me
You’ll be a pop star
All you have to change
Is everything you are
Tired of being compared
To damn Britney Spears
She’s so pretty
That just ain’t me

So doctor, doctor won’t you please prescribe me something?
A day in the life of someone else

Cause I’m a hazard to myself
Don’t let me get me (No)
I’m my own worst enemy
It’s bad when you annoy yourself,
So irritating (No)
Don’t want to be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else
Yeah

Don’t let me get me (Don’t let me)
I’m my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself
So irritating
Don’t wanna be my friend no more
I wanna be somebody else

So doctor, doctor won’t you please prescribe me something?
A day in the life of someone else
Don’t let me get me

Oh, I’m a hazard to myself, yeah
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy
Its bad when you annoy yourself (yourself)
So irritating (so irritating)
Don’t wanna be my friend no more (don’t don’t)
I Wanna be somebody else

Don’t let me get me (don’t let, don’t let)
I’m my own worst enemy (don’t let me get me)
Its bad when you annoy yourself (its bad so bad)
So irritating
Don’t wanna be my friend no more (how)
I wanna be somebody else

Don’t let me get me
Don’t let me get me
I’m my own worst enemy

Pink Songtext: Respect

This is my rap song
1-2-3-4
I’m gettin really sick and tired
Of these boys up in my face
Pick-up lines like what’s your sign?
Won’t get you anyplace
When me and all my girls
Go walking down the street
It seems we can’t go anywhere
Without a car that goes beep, beep  :::BEEP BEEP:::

‚Cause this body is a priceless piece
Of lovin‘ unconditionally, yes
So Mr. Bigstuff, who you think you are?
You was thinkin‘ you’s gon‘ git it for free?

Hey ladies, yeah?
Let ‚em know it ain’t easy
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Let’s come together
Hey Sistas, yeah?
Its time to be greedy
Nothin‘ good comes for free (nothin good comes for free)

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Damn, I sure look fine
I can’t blame those horny boys
I’d would make me mine
When I pass you in a club
„Ooh la la,“ you gasp
Back up boy, I ain’t your toy
Or your piece of ass!

‚Cause this body is a priceless piece
Of lovin‘ unconditionally, yes
So Mr. Bigstuff, who you think you are?
You was thinkin‘ you’s gon‘ git it for free?
No no no

Hey ladies, yeah?
Let ‚em know it ain’t easy
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Let’s come together
Hey Sistas, yeah?
Its time to be greedy
Nothin‘ good comes for free X2
Nothin‘ good comes for free

No jealousy, no envy girls
Come on let’s work it out
No freebies in the limousine
That’s not what it’s about
Let him know there’s work to do
Give it up, he won’t call you
Respect is just a minimum
Go on girl and get you some

1-2-3-4
Hey ladies, yeah?
Let em know it ain’t easy
R-E-S-P-E-C-T
Let’s come together
Sistas, yeah?
Its time to be greedy
Nothin‘ good comes for free X2

Let’s come together
Come on girls lets work it out
Let’s come together
Let’s show ‚em what it’s all about
Let’s come together
Let’s come together
Let’s come together
Let’s come together
You gotta let ‚em know
That it ain’t easy street, no

Pink Songtext: Misery

Shadows are fallin‘ all over town
Another night and these blues got me down
Oh misery
I sure could use some company

Since you’ve been gone
I ain’t been the same
I carry the weight like an old ball and chain
Guess it’s all meant to be … for love to cause me misery

Oh, misery
Oh, misery
Tell me, why does my heart
Make a fool of me?
Seems it’s my destiny
For love to cause me misery

And Oh, I’ve been down this road before
where the passion it turns into pain
And each time I saw love walk out the door
I swore I’d never get caught up again

But ain’t it true
It takes what it takes
And sometimes
we get too smart too late
One more heartache for me
Another night in misery

Misery
Misery
Tell me, why does my heart make a fool of me?

Misery
Misery
Tell me, why does my heart make a fool of me?

Seems it’s my destiny,
for love to cause misery

Misery

Guess it’s all meant to be,
for Love to cause me
Misery

Pink Songtext: Family Portrait

Momma please stop cryin
I can’t stand the sound
Your pain is painful
and its tearin‘ me down

I hear glasses breakin
as I sit up in my bed
I told dad you didn’t mean
those nasty things you said

You fight about money
about me and my brother
And this I come home to
this is my shelter
It ain’t easy
growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, you’ll see
I don’t want love to destroy me like it has done my family

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Mommy I’ll do anything
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

Daddy please stop yellin
I can’t stand the sound

Make mama stop cryin
cause I need you around
My mama she loves you
no matter what she says its true
I know that she hurts you
but remember I love you, too

I ran away today
ran from the noise, ran away
Don’t wanna go back to that place
but don’t have no choice, no way

It ain’t easy growin up in World War III
Never knowin what love could be, well I’ve seen
I don’t want love to destroy me like it did my family

Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Mommy I’ll do anything
Can we work it out?
Can we be a family?
I promise I’ll be better
Daddy please don’t leave

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Let’s act like it comes naturally

I don’t wanna have to split the holidays!
I don’t want two addresses!
I don’t want a step-brother anyways!
And I don’t want my mom to have to change her last name!

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let’s go back to that
In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Act like it goes naturally

In our family portrait
We look pretty happy
We look pretty normal
Let’s go back to that

In our family portrait
we look pretty happy
Let’s play pretend
Act like it goes naturally

Pink Songtext: Just Like A Pill

I’m lying here
On the floor, where you left me
I think I took too much

I’m crying here
What have you done?
I thought it would be fun

I can’t stay on your life support
There’s a shortage in the switch
I can’t stay on your morphine
Cause it’s making me itch
I said I tried to call the nurse again
But she’s being a little bitch
I think I’ll get out of here

Where I can run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear, you’re just like a pill
Instead of making me better
You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

I haven’t moved from the spot where you left me
This must be a bad trip
All of the other pills, they were different
Maybe I should get some help

I can’t stay on your life support
There’s a shortage in the switch
I can’t stay on your morphine
Cause it’s making me itch
I said I tried to call the nurse again
But she’s being a little bitch
I think I’ll get out of here

Where I can run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear, you’re just like a pill
’stead of making me better
You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

Run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear you’re just like a pill
’stead of making me better
You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

I can’t stay on your life support
There’s a shortage in the switch (just like a pill)
I can’t stay on your morphine
Cause it’s making me itch (just like a pill)
I said I tried to call the nurse again
But she’s being a little bitch (just like a pill)
I think I’ll get out of here

Where I can run as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear, you’re just like a pill
’stead of making me better
You’re making me ill
You keep making me

Run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear, you’re just like a pill
’stead of making me better
You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

Run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears
And I swear, you’re just like a pill
’stead of making me better
You keep making me ill
You keep making me ill

Run, just as fast as I can
To the middle of nowhere
To the middle of my frustrated fears

Pink Songtext: Numb

No sleep, no sex for you from your ex-girlfriend
I was too deep can’t let you call me just jump in
At times I would push my feelings aside to let you feel
I’m novocaine I’m numb and nothing’s real

Like the coldest winter
I am frozen from you

I was weak before now you’ve made me
So numb I can’t feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all my baby
I’m numb, numb, numb

But the tears were silent inside, you see
But the tears were silent inside, you see

I laid there quiet
And watched you have your way with me
I might have cried
But the tears were silent inside, you see

You called me names
Made me feel like I was dumb
I didn’t feel a thing
And now I’m gone, gone, gone

Like a battered child
I got used to your pain
but you know it’s ‚cause

I was weak before now you’ve made me
So numb, I can’t feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all my baby
I’m numb, numb, numb

I was weak before now you’ve made me
So numb, I can’t feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all my baby
I’m numb, numb, numb, numb numb numb

I was weak before now you’ve made me
So numb, I can’t feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all my baby
I’m numb, numb, numb, numb numb numb

I was weak before now you’ve made me
So numb, I can’t feel much for you anymore
I gave you my all my baby
I’m numb, numb, numb
numb numb numb
