  • 2 Mystery Girl
  • 3 Art Star
  • 4 Miles Away
  • 5 Our Time
  • It was the struggle of the century
    And all the grown men came to see
    The girl who tamed the tiger, yeah yeah
    The heart of southern lovebirds
    They found her under the sea
    She said she came from cell block three

    The girl hit hot like a barracuda baby
    She floated on air like a crest of wave
    She was a primal institution
    She was a danger to herself, yeah

    Mad loving by the cold hearted
    Take a big breath
    Because we just started

    Mystery girl
    Mystery girl
    Keep on faking your mystery world
    Cause the mystery boys
    Will be your toys, yeah
    Cause the mystery boys
    Will be your toys

    Not a day goes by I want to disappear
    Into her eyes a mother pearl
    And my head feels dead
    With all this useless fighting
    But my heart ain't dead
    Cause it keeps on loving

    The girl hit hard like a barracuda baby
    She floated on air like a crest of wave
    She was a primal institution
    She was a danger to herself yeah

    Mad loving by the cold hearted
    Take a big breath
    Because we just started

    Mystery girl
    Mystery girl
    Keep on faking your mystery world
    Cause the mystery boys
    Will be your toys, yeah
    Cause the mystery boys
    Will be your toys, yeah
    There be your toys
    There be your toys, alright
