1995: Garbage

Hey boy take a look at me Let me dirty up your mind I’ll strip away your hard veneer And see what I can find. Queer

I’m only happy when it rains I’m only happy when it’s complicated And though I know you can’t appreciate it I’m only happy when it rains. Only Happy When It Rains

You pretend you’re high Pretend you’re bored Pretend you’re anything Just to be adored And what you need Is what you get. Stupid Girl

I am milk I am red hot kitchen And I am cool Cool as the deep blue ocean. Milk

The queerest of the queer The strangest of the strange The coldest of the cool The lamest of the lame The numbest of the dumb. Queer

I’m only happy when it rains I feel good when things are going wrong I only listen to the sad, sad songs I’m only happy when it rains. Only Happy When It Rains

You stupid girl You stupid girl All you had, you wasted All you had, you wasted. Stupid Girl

I am lost So I am cruel But I’d be love and sweetness If I had you. Milk

I hate to see you here You choke behind a smile A fake behind the fear The queerest of the queer. Queer

I only smile in the dark My only comfort is the night gone black. Only Happy When It Rains

What drives you on (drives you on) Can drive you mad (drive you mad) A million lies to sell yourself Is all you ever had. Stupid Girl

I’m waiting, I’m waiting for you I’m aching, I’m aching for you. Milk

1998: Version 2.0

I’ll tell you something I am a wolf but I like to wear sheep’s clothing. Temptation Waits

You can look, but you can’t touch I don’t think I like you much Heaven knows what a girl can do Heaven knows what you’ve got to prove. I Think I’m Paranoid

Cut my tongue out, I’ve been caught out Like a giant juggernaut Happy hours, golden showers. When I Grow Up

I’ve been living without you I know all about you I have run you down into the ground Spread disease about you over town. Special

I was angry when I met you I think I’m angry still We can try to talk it over If you say you’ll help me out. Push It

You come on like a drug I just can’t get enough I’m like an addict coming at you For a little more. Temptation Waits

Bend me, break me Anyway you need me All I want is you Bend me, break me Breaking down is easy All I want is you. I Think I’m Paranoid

When I grow up I’ll be stable When I grow up I’ll turn the tables. When I Grow Up

Do you have an opinion? A mind of your own? I thought you were special I thought you should know. Special

I’m sorry that I hurt you Please don’t ask me why I want to see you happy I want to see you shine. Push It

And there’s so much at stake I can’t afford to waste I never needed anybody Like this before. Temptation Waits

I fall down just to give you a thrill Prop me up with another pill If I should fail, if I should fold I nailed my faith to the sticking pole. I Think I’m Paranoid

Trying hard to fit among you Floating out to wonderland Unprotected, God I’m pregnant Damn the consequences. When I Grow Up

I used to amuse you I knew that I’d lose you Now you’re here and begging for a chance But there’s no way in hell I’d take you back. Special

Push it, make the beats go harder Push it, make the beats go harder. Push It

2001: Beautiful Garbage

Welcome, we love you, we hate you, we love you We want you, we need you, we wish we were like you. Shut Your Mouth

When everything is going wrong And you can’t see the point of going on Nothing in life is set in stone There’s nothing that can’t be turned around. Androgyny

She gave you everything she had But she was young and dumb She’d just turned 21 She didn’t care to hang around So when the shit came down. Cherry Lips

In a modern culture My friend you must be careful They’ve a million Ways to kill you. Breaking Up the Girl

Shut your mouth Try not to panic Just shut your mouth If you can do it Just shut your mouth. Shut Your Mouth

(Boys) boys in the girls’ room (Girls) girls in the men’s room You free your mind in your androgyny. Androgyny

You’re such a delicate boy In the hysterical realm Of an emotional landslide In physical terms. Cherry Lips

I am afraid That there’s much to be afraid of Here today And gone tomorrow. Breaking Up the Girl

What’s your opinion of the dire situation? In our land here, our guest here, of course you’ll be nice here How do you feel about God and religion Are you good people? Bad people?. Shut Your Mouth

No sweeter a taste that you could find Than fruit hanging ripe upon the vine. Androgyny

You hold a candle in your heart You shine the light on hidden parts You make the whole world wanna dance You bought yourself a second chance. Cherry Lips

One mistake’s All it takes And your life has come undone Walk away cause you’re breaking up the girl. Breaking Up the Girl

2005: Bleed Like Me

Love can be so strange Don’t it amaze you? Every time you give yourself away It comes back to haunt you. Run Baby Run

I’m no barbie doll I’m not your baby girl I’ve done ugly things And I have made mistakes. Why Do You Love Me

Avalanche is sullen and too thin She starves herself to rid herself of sin And the kick is so divine when she sees bones beneath her skin And she says: Hey baby can you bleed like me? C’mon baby can you bleed like me?. Bleed Like Me

I wish I had a metal heart I could cross the line I wish that I was half as good As you think I am. Metal Heart

Run, my baby, run, my baby, run Run from the noise of the street and the loaded gun Too late for solutions to solve in the setting sun So run, my baby, run, my baby, run. Run Baby Run

And I am not as pretty as those girls in magazines I am rotten to my core if they’re to be believed. Why Do You Love Me

Doodle takes dad’s scissors to her skin And when she does relief comes setting in While she hides the scars she’s making underneath her pretty clothes. Bleed Like Me

But now that we know for sure they’re telling lies when they say No one gets hurt and therefore nobody dies. Metal Heart

Life can be so cruel Don’t it astound you? So when nothing seems too certain or safe Let it burn through you. Run Baby Run

So what if I’m no baby bird hanging upon your every word? Nothing ever smells of roses that rises out of mud. Why Do You Love Me

I wish I wasn’t flesh and blood I would not be scared Of bullets built with me in mind Then I could be saved. Metal Heart

2012: Not Your Kind Of People

We are not your kind of people You seem kind of phony Everything’s a lie. Not Your Kind of People

The world might end, the night might fall Rain on down and cover us all And drown us with the burdens of our sins. Control

Salute the sun, I’ve been sitting here all night long Hauling rock over Buddha with the Longhorn. Blood for Poppies

Your words are pretty but I already know who you are I knew you before you met me, long before we would part. I Hate Love

We are not your kind of people Something in your make-up Don’t see eye to eye. Not Your Kind of People

I never saw you coming from inside my little prison Your autograph would really buy me time If you think you are the reason. Control

I don’t know why they are calling on the radio They know I’m here just out of sight. Blood for Poppies

Shore you up They lay all their dreams on you They let you in and you start to believe you’re soft as a miracle. I Hate Love

You dropped by here as I was sleeping You came to see the whole commotion And when I woke I started laughing The joke’s on me for not believing. Not Your Kind of People

I confess I’ve lost control I let my guard down I let the truth out. Control

I hate the things I think about you when I’m all alone I know you’re tough but I’ve been gone for so long. Blood for Poppies

And love makes you crazy with nothing but lies Love promises nothing and then your love dies. I Hate Love

2016: Strange Little Birds

I’ve been feeling so frustrated I’ll never be as great as I want to be. Empty

Keeping my thoughts under wraps tonight Keeping my feelings to myself I’m already broken hearted So let’s get this party started. Blackout

I’m getting desperate Desperate for a revolution Some kind of spark Some kind of connection. Even Though Our Love is Doomed

I’m not in love, I’m not in love And there will be no future tense for us I cannot lie, I know it isn’t right to want you Most of the time I stop myself from trying to touch you. Magnetized

They all seem to know exactly What it is they want, they pass me They smile as they go. Empty

Get out your head, get out your head Try not to think, be cool, be calm, be fake Dumb yourself down, numb yourself out Fake it till you make it break. Blackout

Why we kill the things we love the most Kill the things we love Kill the things we love the most. Even Though Our Love is Doomed

You bring your light, I’ll bring the pain You bring your joy, I’ll bring my shame I want to kiss the scar that rips your shoulder Get so close that it hurts Every time I feel us growing closer. Magnetized

I’m so empty You’re all I’m thinking about, about Oh oh, about, about Oh oh oh, about, about. Empty

All the hurt you nurse inside You’d better cough it up Beautiful like shards of glass In your throat they’ll cut you up. Blackout

And even though our stars are crossed You’re the only thing worth fighting for You’re the only thing worth dying for. Even Though Our Love is Doomed

I would risk everything Set fire to the house Pack my bags and walk out But would you want me to If I was free?. Magnetized
