Track Name: Evil Genius
Evil genius, would-be ruler of the universe
I’m feeling a little bit mean-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse
Evil genius, the master of the universe
Sitting here hatching my schemes-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse.

I have a pool of mutant sharks,
I have a goon with a bowler hat I’m dressed with style,
I’m dressed to kill Stroking the head of my favourite cat
My secret base is underground
And mission control is on the moon
My evil minions are running around
My time as master of all will be soon

Evil genius, would-be ruler of the universe
I’m feeling a little bit mean-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse
Evil genius, the master of the universe
Sitting here hatching my schemes-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse.

I built a bomb the size of Canary Wharf
I’ve sent the world a ransom note
I poisoned the Queen by spiking her wine
And only I have the antidote
I’m crazy for power,
I’m crazy for wealth
Or maybe I’m just plain crazy
I know I had no pets as a child
But after that it all gets a bit hazy

Evil genius, would-be ruler of the universe
I’m feeling a little bit mean-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse
Evil genius, the master of the universe
Sitting here hatching my schemes-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse.

Evil genius, ever so ever so devious
I know I’m a little obscene-ious
Just check my form I’ve got previous

I’ve chained the hero to my doomsday device
There’s no way he can ever survive
If he doesn’t escape in just 12 hours
He’ll never get out alive, alive
I’m smarter and richer and better than you
I should be your empress and that is that
So wait in fear for my next evil scheme
(Excuse me first while I feed the cat…)

Evil genius, would-be ruler of the universe
I’m feeling a little bit mean-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse
Evil genius, the master of the universe
Sitting here hatching my schemes-ious
You never know what I might do-niverse.
Track Name: You're Gonna Get It
In a dark country lane
It was pouring with rain
They were calling my name
They said look out or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it
They were up to no good,
And they were lusting for blood
They would hurt what they could
And I thought look out, or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it

Villains or heroes bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
Victors or zeroes, bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
They’re gonna get it, they’re all gonna get it now.

They had knives in their hands
They had obvious plans
Waving fire-lit brands
Yelling look out, or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it
I was backed into a wall
There was no help at all
No one I could call
To say look out, or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it

Villains or heroes bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
Victors or zeroes, bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
They’re gonna get it, they’re all gonna get it now.

Villains or heroes bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
Victors or zeroes, bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
They’re gonna get it, they’re all gonna get it now.

They came on at a pace
There was blood on my face
I knew that this was the place
And I thought look out, or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it
I tasted blood on my lips
As I started to rip
And I tore them to bits
Shouting look out, or you’re gonna get it
You’re gonna get it

Villains or heroes bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
Victors or zeroes, bring ‘em on, bring ‘em on
They’re gonna get it, they’re all gonna get it now.
Track Name: Limbo
There’s a new dance craze in town
I see it everywhere I go
There’s no escaping the sound Of the limbo, of the limbo

It has no moves, it has no beat
No quick quick quick quick slow
It’s nothing more than a shuffling of the feet
It’s called the limbo, it’s called the limbo

Can you feel the limbo?
The unbearable limboness of being
And I’m gripped in limbo and you’re stuck in limbo
And limbo is all that we are seeing

It seems to last forever
And every move is the same as every other
And you’ll never get out, never never
As time ticks away; a minute then another

Its rhythm channels apathy
Thrives on the status quo
An embodiment of ennui It’s called the limbo, it’s called the limbo.

Can you feel the limbo?
The unbearable limboness of being
And I’m gripped in limbo and you’re stuck in limbo
And limbo is all that we are seeing

I’m so tired of this dance
So tired of the limbo
Feels like I’ll never advance
Stuck forever in limbo

Can you feel the limbo?
The unbearable limboness of being
And I’m gripped in limbo and you’re stuck in limbo
And limbo is all that we are seeing
Track Name: Crossroads
Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll give you everything you need
Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll do everything, every deed
Meet me at the crossroads
Anything you want you can have
Meet me at the crossroads
Meet me if you’re feeling brave

So choose your path, choose your destiny
A glittering future as far as you can see
But you better make sure that you had your eyes tested
Because there is an end to what you invested

Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll give you everything you need
Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll do everything, every deed
Meet me at the crossroads
Anything you want you can have
Meet me at the crossroads
Meet me if you’re feeling brave

Choose your power or your talent or your fortune or your fame
Everyone will be saying your name
All you’re gonna need is me at your side
Surely it isn’t so hard to decide

Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll give you everything you need
Meet me at the crossroads
And I’ll do everything, every deed
Meet me at the crossroads
Anything you want you can have
Meet me at the crossroads
Meet me if you’re feeling brave

A road to the top, a life of success
Riches and spoils and lived to excess
You can have all you want make it all look pretty
(Just remember that later I get your eternity)

A life for living a life to die for
Of course, that’ll happen when you can’t take it any more
So you better make it count to your very last day
‘Cause after that you’re mine and it will be all my way

When you met me at the crossroads I gave you everything you asked for When you met me at the crossroads I made sure you could open every door
When you bargain at the crossroads
You win but you gotta give the devil his due
You bargained at the crossroads I kept my side – now I’m coming for you.
Track Name: Red Violin
Smooth scarlet under my fingers
Feels like silk, feels like skin
Sensation clings and lingers
Taint of spoil, taint of sin

Scarlet, crimson, red
Case of wood, steeped in blood
Thirsty, sated, fed
The red violin is calling

Hear it cry your name
In the night, in the dark
Calls you to its game
Like a player, like a shark

Scarlet, crimson, red
Case of wood, steeped in blood
Thirsty, sated, fed
The red violin is calling

Sound wails from its strings
Crystal clear, can you hear?
Promises you all… things
Will you go, will you draw near?

Scarlet, crimson, red
Case of wood, steeped in blood
Thirsty, sated, fed
The red violin is calling

Every note a blade
Cold as ice, sharp as steel
Pierces to your very core
Turns within, never heals

Scarlet, crimson, red
Case of wood, steeped in blood
Thirsty, sated, fed
The red violin is calling

Nearer now you’re drawing
Feel the pull of the strings
In your soul they’re clawing
As they moan and they sing
Face to face you see it
The red violin, the siren
The last note fades then all is still
The red violin
Has found you.
