Fuck Everyone by Siân Brown © 2020 Fuck everyone, I'm not even joking. Fuck everyone, and your little dogs too I'm sick of it, and it's something worth noting Fuck everyone, especially you... The booker who made things so difficult for no apparent reason And left us standing in the rain Gave us the worst slot of the whole weekend She was such a Lazy Hake! I have more talent in my toe than you have in your whole entire body And I know that's why you did it. Fuck everyone, I'm not even joking. Fuck everyone, and your little dogs too I'm sick of it, and it's something worth noting Fuck everyone, especially you... The arse hole who thought he was such a big shot and told me I was nothing Your stage was crap and your man bun is pathetic All in all and at best your generic I confused you didn't I? You didn't know if you were disgusted or into it And I know that's why you did it. Fuck everyone, I'm not even joking. Fuck everyone, and your little dogs too I'm sick of it, and it's something worth noting Fuck everyone, especially you... If we can't all be nice. If we can't all be kind Well you can have that shit back as I gladly pass you by You may have won this round but it's only a matter of time. I know how bright I shine And I know that's why you did it!

I Am 03:36
I Am by Siân Brown © 2020 I closed a book that I was reading before I left the house. I had to get out. And all the while I ran for miles but this feeling! It wouldn't leave and I don't need this state of being You're killing me. I don't know what I am but I am! But I am! And I want you bad. You weave a wicked web of oneness with your words Tell me more, tell me more! Well I run in and out of ways I should forget you I wish I could, I wish I could never have met you You're killing me. I don't know what I am but I am! But I am! And I want you bad. I want you bad boy x 3 Oooooohhhhh I don't know what I am but I am! But I am! And I want you bad. I want you bad boy x 3

Warm and Washed by Siân Brown © 2020 Today went down the toilet fairly quickly I did my best to save it but it slipped from my hands I have yet to feel like I know what I'm doing I don't know if I make any sense. And I know it's a cliche And I know, I know, I know it's been said before Today I'm out to sea in stormy weather Tomorrow I hope I'll be warm and washed ashore. Warm and washed, warm and washed, warm and washed ashore I am sick to death of playing placid I have had enough of trying to keep you soothed I do not agree with everything your saying And I'm just not in the fucking mood. And I know it's a cliche And I know, I know, I know it's been said before Today I'm out to sea in stormy weather Tomorrow I hope I'll be warm and washed ashore. Warm and washed, warm and washed, warm and washed ashore Have a little faith in me Don't be silly, don't be jealous, it's petty Have a little faith in me Don't be silly, don't be jealous, it's petty Warm and washed, warm and washed, warm and washed ashore Warm and washed, warm and washed, warm and washed ashore

Woman Now 04:18
Woman Now by Siân Brown © 2020 There's a clock, on a chain around my neck I've been too busy, I've had no time to check But the people they've been talking, whispering and pointing The magazines and TV screens have all been trying to warn me If I'm not careful, I'll miss my window Then all I'll have around me are the ones who told me so But I'm not ready, maybe I'll never be that kind of fruit tree. I feel the pressure of the people They tell me that I'll be too tired to ever mourn my freedom Thoughts of touring will fade away Like the rest I'll be the best at coping day to day. They say that music never pays Find a job, buy a house, put those dreams away You can keep it if you teach it To all the ones who are still young with plenty time to play I'm a woman now, talk is cheep Time to settle down, only dream when I sleep No more running my mouth about seeing the world I'm a woman now, not a girl. We're the only ones who live life this way Obsessed with age and stage and counting down the days I want to be free to follow my dreams For as long as it takes but... I'm a woman now, talk is cheep Time to settle down, only dream when I sleep No more running my mouth about seeing the world I'm a woman now, not a girl. I'm a woman now, talk is cheep Time to settle down, only dream when I sleep No more running my mouth about seeing the world I'm a woman now, not a girl.

One of Us 05:15
One of Us by Siân Brown © 2020 Right in the middle of my insides I strive to touch the truth. We are all reflections of an essence in full bloom. Overtook the speed of sound and ripped a sonic boom. If I hate you then I hate me, there's only one of us in the room. There's only one of us, there's only one of us, one of us in the room x 4 What are we doing here? And why are we doing it? When one can see their oneness with the darkest parts of themselves, they may see their oneness with all there is and all the illusions of our existence will fall away, as butterflies emerge from old, brittle skin. Expand your imagination to navigate the unknown. Let us celebrate every single expression of uniqueness As love shields us from limitations and guides us in the gift of eternal consciousness. Right in the middle of my insides I strive to tough the truth We are all reflections of an essence in full bloom Overtook the speed of sound and ripped a sonic boom If I hate you then I hate me, There's only one of us in the room. There's only one of us, there's only one of us One of us in the room x 4 What are we doing here? And why are we doing it? The voiceless voice sounds so sweet, says shine your light, shine it big Spread your wings and fly high, glide around and ride the joy. Lose it all to gain it all, hear the cry, hear the call. Love big with all your heart, then learn the lessons put in place. It's all here in abundance. Here we are! The human race! Right in the middle of my insides I strive to tough the truth If I hate you then I hate me, There's only one of us in the room. There's only one of us, there's only one of us One of us in the room x 2 What are we doing here? And why are we doing it?

King Kong Company by Siân Brown © 2020 This is where I'm supposed to tell you how amazing I am and how much I can do for you But I'm gonna skip that shit this time I'm so far behind I can't pretend that I'm cool. I'm no super social queen, I'm not the best you've ever seen I know rejection inside out But I write, sing, dance, play dream my dreams will come some day It's all I've ever loved! King Kong Company, you know you wanna play with me I could be your Bez, we could be best friends King Kong Company, you blew my mind so wondrously We know it's all a show, keep them dancing as we go. Believe me I have tried to get this fucker off the ground But I'm shy and I don't know how to talk to people. Although I kill it onstage I'm fast approaching middle age And I'm tired of being last in line. All the tears I've cried watching others pass me by even though they're pretty shite All these years gone by writing songs about my life. When will I, When will I take flight? King Kong Company, you know you wanna play with me I could be your Bez, we could be best friends King Kong Company, you blew my mind so wondrously We know it's all a show, keep them dancing as we go. I'm no super social queen, I'm not the best you've ever seen I know rejection inside out But I write, sing, dance, play dream my dreams will come some day It's all I've ever loved! King Kong Company, you know you wanna play with me I could be your Bez, we could be best friends King Kong Company, you blew my mind so wondrously We know it's all a show, keep them dancing as we go. King Kong Company, you know you wanna play with me I could be your Bez, we could be best friends King Kong Company, you blew my mind so wondrously We know it's all a show, keep them dancing as we go.

Music Never Failed Me by Siân Brown & Laura Cahill © 2020 (Laura) Never was a talker so I learned to sing. A language I can understand, it's what I bring. So fill my world with sound. Melt all these worries down. Turn the music up and let me dance today (Siân & Laura) Music never failed to pick me up off the ground. Music never hurt me with it's sweet sweet sound Music never failed me on the battleground Music never failed me now. (Siân) I know what you mean girl, I feel the same. As far back as I remember music soothed my pain. Hearing Fast Car for the first time I just couldn't believe Someone else out there felt the same way as me. (Siân & Laura) Music never failed to pick me up off the ground. Music never hurt me with it's sweet sweet sound Music never failed me on the battleground Music never failed me now. It knows my mood it reads my mind (Laura) In just 4 minutes it can change your life (Siân) And you know what? It don't care if your wrong or right (Siân) (Siân & Laura) Music never failed to pick me up off the ground. Music never hurt me with it's sweet sweet sound Music never failed me on the battleground Music never failed me now.

Bitter Cup 05:10
Bitter Cup by Siân Brown © 2020 In lock-down watching the rain I could sit here and stare all day Say nothing as I recall Every rise and every single fall Only I know where my mind goes And my minds all messed up I drained the bitter cup My minds all messed up What have you always wanted to be? Are you that now, did you follow your dreams? Or did the world just wear you down? Still floating 'round the same old town. Only I know where my mind goes And my minds all messed up I drained the bitter cup My minds all messed up If I could re-write any part of this strange story I'd speak my mind more freely, despite the sinking feelings So many things unsaid that I never got a chance to regret My only advice, don't keep it all inside, don't keep it all inside Don't keep it all inside. Only I know where my mind goes And my minds all messed up I drained the bitter cup My minds all messed up I drained the bitter cup.

Counter Claim by Siân Brown © 2020 I've had a think about it, I think about it all the time. Standing back in line. You were such a big deal, your music made me feel the most alive. And I can't bite my tongue any longer No I, can't delete that song. We were all children. Children just want to play a million different games The games get harder, the harder people play. We are all the same And I can't bite my tongue any longer No I, can't delete that song. And I won't just fade away now I'm stronger so I'll file my counter claim My counter claim No word from you in seven months before you came back into my life I'm not your groupie I'm not your Yes man. Made a poor excuse for that shit MC As I stood and watched you spit all over me (You spit all over me x 6 ) And I can't bite my tongue any longer No I, can't delete that song. And I won't just fade away now I'm stronger So I'll file my counter claim ... My counter claim x 4

Last Life 03:03
Last Life by Siân Brown © 2020 When I finally leave this place, I won't be coming back. Shake the dust from my feet, and the monkeys from my back. I gave it all, all of the time I gave it all of my songs With all the feelings I could ever feel All of my rights and wrongs. When I finally leave this place, I won't be coming back. Shake the dust from my feet, and the monkeys from my back. Nothing, no-one, who do I think I am? How dare I keep trying to stick it to the man. Now I am floating off into space See how small it's become Drifting into the ether I get bigger and bigger My heart like the sound of a drum My heart like the sound of a drum. When I finally leave this place, I won't be coming back. Shake the dust from my feet, and the monkeys from my back.

We are the Changelings by Siân Brown © 2020 A twitch in my brain's driving me insane Fighting for peace is a paradox of pain. Already united, we are works of art Give in to love and occupy your hearts. Smiley smiley behind their faces Sharp teeth and hunger in their eyes Cold blooded killers covering all bases Real live vampires feeding from our lives How long before we wake up to who we are? How long before the turning? How do we break a prison with no bars that keeps us always yearning? We, we are, we are the Changelings That peace we seek externally is ruining our ride The powers ours it always was, now we realise Build a bridge, a rainbow bridge Cross the logic line Faster than the speed of light Balancing both sides We, we are, we are the Changelings I built a spaceship for the dawn of the 5th sun With chaos mounting I will return to one I'll give you the blueprints open your heart wide We are the changelings The changes are inside We, we are, we are the Changelings

about

Siân's most epic album yet! One of the best 'Fuck You' albums of it's time. Things are getting serious.
