MANIFESTO
Women of power and intrigue emerge, dazed, their velvet eyes blinking. Like so many nubile Playmates, they spreadsheet across my mousepad...


LYRICS

DANCING CHICKEN
Bad Boy gets caught doing a greed routine on Wall Street.

DON'T DIS ME (WHEN YOU KISS ME)
Just in from Planet Mars, Major Tom -- reimagined as Major Label producer -- goes head to head with Pretty Rae regarding product image.

9:00 TO 9:00
Temping tonight, temping tonight -- the dance of the worker bees.

CLEAN AND JERK
Somewhere between freedom and restraint...

MIRAGE
Alice merely laughs from her looking-glass.

(GO AHEAD) MAKE MY DINNER
Boil, boil, I double dare you...

THE SONG OF THE BLUE FAIRY
Pinocchio's dream goddess, the Blue Fairy, sings a song of sweet dreamland.

I PUT THE SHAME ON YOU
Theme song from Lisa's solo performance piece The Marquise of O--, adapted from Heinrich von Kleist's 1807 novella.

ANYTHING THAT CALMS
"Shiver me homeward in your dreams..." A love song.

GALAXY GIRL
Plans for a magnificent future in the starry beyond.

BIG NOISE
Tragedy strikes a "very pretty here" small town.

STANDING ON THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
If a rose is still a rose, I'll accept no substitutions.

ANNA B.
She left him lying in a red pool on the Armstrong No-Wax Marble Beauty kitchen floor.

LIVING ON THE FRINGES
Homage to New York City.

SWIMMING LIKE A DOLPHIN
Wild to be free in the great, deep ocean.
