This is the information from a 22 track tape that is kept at the Library Of Congress in Washington, DC, with an entry date mentioned as 28 December 1992. This tape leaked on the internet in July 2007. We presume the recordings are from December 1992 or maybe a bit earlier. We can only guess at the reason why it is called “20 Other Songs” while there are 22 songs on it in total. Maybe French Movie Theme wasn’t considered to be a proper song?

From the LoC’s website: “The Library’s mission is to make its resources available and useful to the Congress and the American people and to sustain and preserve a universal collection of knowledge and creativity for future generations.”

Quiet
I am sleeping
In here
We need a little hope
For years
I’ve been sleeping
Helpless
Couldn’t tell a soul
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Silent
Metal mercies
Castrate
Boys to the bone
Jesus
Are you listening?
Up there
To anyone at all
We are the fossils
The relics of our time
We mutilate the meanings
So they’re easy to deny
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I am sleeping
Quiet
I don’t trust you
I can’t hear you
Be ashamed
Of the mess you’ve made
My eyes never forget, you see
Behind me
Behind me
The grace of falling snow
Cover up everything you know
Come save me from the awful sound
Of nothing

Additional Info: Working title for Hello Kitty Kat.

Say hello before you say goodbye
I should go before you make me cry
She wants to bleed every drop inside of me
But I aim to please the little girl inside of me too
Yeah, yeah
You know I hate to say it
Oh no, I always stay
I don’t wanna be like the others please
Who’s sorry now
Who’s sorry now
If I show you how
Will you let me down
Slit my wrists and die a whore
Love to love to love what you adore
I can give you anything
But please let me be your everything, please
Yeah, yeah
You know I hate to say it
Oh no, I always stay
I don’t wanna be like the others please
Who’s sorry now
If I show you how
Will you let me down
Will you let me down
Who’s sorry now
Who’s sorry now
My love is weakness
My love is oh so wrong
My love is sadness
My love is oh so strong
My teeth are razor sharp
My back is fucking strong
I’ll be with you
But not for long
No, no
You know I hate to say it
Oh no, I always stay
I don’t wanna be like the others please
Who’s sorry now
Who’s sorry now
Who’s sorry now
If I show you how
Will you let me down
Will you let me down
Please let me down
Please let me down

Freak out
And give in
Doesn’t matter what you believe in
Stay cool
And be somebody’s fool this year
‘Cause they know
Who is righteous, What is bold
So I’m told
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Hipsters unite
Come align for the big fight to rock for you
But beware
All those angels with their wings glued on
‘Cause deep down
We are frightened and we’re scared
If you don’t stare
Who wants honey
As long as there’s some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Tell me all of your secrets
Cannot help but believe this is true
Tell me all of your secrets
I know, I know, I know,
Should have listened when I was told
Who wants honey
As long as there is some money
Who wants that honey?
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out

Additional Info: Suicide Kiss was said to have evolved into a number of different songs, including Geek U.S.A.

Lover lover let’s pretend
We’re born as innocents
Cast into the world
With apple eyes
To wish wish dangerous
My dear delirious
To try and leave
The rest of us behind
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
Kiss kiss all of this
The hiss that we had missed
And understand what can’t be understood
Sear those thoughts of me
Alone and unhappy
I never liked me anyway
If by chance
Or circumstance
We should fail
Don’t be so sad
Shot full of diamonds
And a million years
The disappointed disappear
Like they were never here
In a dream
We are connected
Siamese twins
At the wrist
And then I knew we’d been forsaken
Expelled from paradise
I can’t believe them
When they say that it’s alright
Words can’t define what I feel inside
Who needs them?
Caught with this virus of my mind
I give in to my disease, of my needs
To my disease, of my needs
She really loves to break
Her dad says its OK
She really loves to break
And give it all away
Her ma says she’s afraid
What more can she fake
She really needs to break
And give herself away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
She gave it all away
We really love the USA

Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t live for tomorrow,
Tomorrow’s much too long
I’ll burn my eyes out
Before I get out
I wanted more
Than life could ever grant me
Bored by the chore
Of saving face
Today is the greatest
Day I’ve ever known
Can’t wait for tomorrow
I might not have that long
I’ll tear my heart out
Before I get out
Pink ribbon scars
That never forget
I tried so hard
To cleanse these regrets
My angel wings
Were bruised and restrained
My belly stings
Today is
Today is
Today is
The greatest day
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you on
I want to turn you
Today is the greatest
Today is the greatest day
Today is the greatest day
That I have ever really known

Disarm you with a smile
And cut you like you want me to
Cut that little child
Inside of me and such a part of you
Ooh, the years burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my choice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
Disarm you with a smile
And leave you like they left me here
To wither in denial
The bitterness of one who’s left alone
Ooh, the years burn
Ooh, the years burn, burn, burn
I used to be a little boy
So old in my shoes
And what I choose is my voice
What’s a boy supposed to do?
The killer in me is the killer in you
My love
I send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you
Send this smile over to you
The killer in me is the killer in you

Bleed in your own light
Dream of your own life
I miss me
I miss everything I’ll never be
And on, and on
I torch my soul to show
The world that I am pure
Deep inside my heart
No more lies
A crown of horns
An image formed deformed
The mark I’ve borne
A mark of scorn to you
Consume my love, devour my hate
Only powers my escape
The moon is out, the stars invite
I think I’ll leave tonight
So soon I’ll find myself alone
To relax and fade away
Do you know what’s coming down
Do you know I couldn’t stay free?
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free
I shall be free free
Free of those voices inside me
I shall be free
I shall be free

Born to please, every simple need

I stand alone in my thoughts indeed

Hate you

For ever making me

I’m in you, I’m your anything

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

Come to me, let me hold you still

I’m so tired, just as tired as you

Take me for anyone but me

All that you feel is never true

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

When you say that you are

Forever my star

Could never let you go, no, no

And never let you know

Let roar these fears

To the whore of my tears

Pure as a lie, I pour to your eyes

Suck you like the sap from a tree

Honey from the dew, from the bumblebees, yeah yeah

And I- want you

And I- need you

And all you are is brand new

And I- need you

Nothing left to say
And all I’ve left to do
Is run away
From you
And she led me on, down
With secrets I can’t keep
Close your eyes and sleep
Don’t wait up for me
Hush now don’t you speak
To me
Wrapped my hurt in you
And took my shelter in that pain
The opiate of blame
Is your broken heart, your heart
So now I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray my tears
To anyone caught in our ruse of fools
One last kiss for me…yeah
One last kiss good night
Didn’t want to lose you once again
Didn’t want to be your friend
Fulfilled a promise made of tin
And crawled back to you
I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
I’ll betray myself
To anyone, lost, anyone but you
So let the sadness come again
On that you can depend on me, yeah
Until the bitter, bitter end of the world, yeah
When god sleeps in bliss
And I’m all by myself
As I’ve always felt
And I’ll betray myself
To anyone

Been chasin’ all my fears
For another brighter than him

To make it to the show
But it’s not easy
When you’re alone
All your prayers

Don’t you care
Whir yourself around
Just to fall back down
Whir yourself around
My honey little girl
C’mon lets go for a whirl
It’s still early
The sun is sleeping
She says she wants to marry me

And on her doorstep

I saw that I was blind

I'd forsaken

What was mine

What had mattered

Mattered little now

We had shattered

Apart somehow

Ooh

I can't help but stay the same

I remain true to my name

Time to get up

And take the long walk home

For the first time

I go alone

Do you remember

When we first met?

Chasing down the alleyways

Behind my dad's

Ooh

I can't help but stay the same

I remain true to the name

Of lovers past

Good enough to lose

Good enough to choose you, too

Faith lies in
The ways of sin
I chased the charmed
But I don’t want them anymore
And in their eyes I was alive
A fool’s disguise
Take me away from you
Shame my tongue
Fat with promise all along
But when I woke up from that sleep
I was happier than I’d ever been
When you decide
That your life is a prize
Renew and revive
It’s alright honey
It’s alright, yeah
Happiness will make you wonder
Will I feel OK?
It scares the disenchanted
Far away
Yeah I want something new
But what am I supposed to do about you
Yeah I love you, it’s true

Her name is Glynis, yes

One who’s dearest, and the love of a friend

Given to all beliefs
Scarecrows and disease haunt us all

Fool enough to almost be it
Cool enough to not quite see it
Doomed
Pick your pockets full of sorrow
And run away with me tomorrow
June
We’ll try and ease the pain
But somehow we’ll feel the same
Well, no one knows
Where our secrets go
I send a heart to all my dearies
When your life is so, so dreary
Dream
I’m rumored to the straight and narrow
While the harlots of my perils
Scream
And I fail
But when I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will
Mother weep the years I’m missing
All our time can’t be given
Back
Shut my mouth and strike the demons
That cursed you and your reasons
Out of hand and out of season
Out of love and out of feeling
So bad
When I can, I will
Words defy the plans
When I can, I will
Fool enough to almost be it
And cool enough to not quite see it
And old enough to always feel this
Always old, I’ll always feel this
No more promise no more sorrow
No longer will I follow
Can anybody hear me
I just want to be me
When I can, I will
Try to understand
That when I can, I will
