Track Name: The Potentials Theme
We're not the Chosen Ones,
But now we're on the run,
We are nothing special,
We are The Potentials!

It was just a normal day,
Everything was going our way,
Then some guys with no eyes,
Seemed to really want us to die

And now we're on the run,
We've only just begun

We're not the Chosen Ones,
But now we're on the run,
We are nothing special,
We are The Potentials!

We're training in Buffy's yard,
Without super powers, it's fucking hard,
There's no master plan, it feels so wrong,
We make it up as we go along

It's do or die and we're gonna fight,
There Uber vamps have really got some bite,
It's hard, and we're scared,
But we might as well give it a go

We're not the Chosen Ones,
But now we're on the run,
We are nothing special,
We are The Potentials!

Can stand up, will stand up!

We're not the Chosen Ones,
But now we're on the run,
We are nothing special,
We are The Potentials!
Track Name: Amy (No Peace For)
I'm starting to fear that,
There might never be peace for Amy (peace for Amy)

Your tiny paws clawing at the walls,
That defend your habitrail,
Your psycho mom,
Sashaying along,
In your teen body

I'm starting to fear that,
There might never be peace for Amy (peace for Amy)

Your addiciton, strings you along,
It creates your story,
Can't defend you,
But support you,
And your history
Track Name: Hail Moloch
Computer lab, gets me through the day,
Ms Calendar is such a babe,
When I'm online, I feel fine,
I found a world that's all mine

If you're not jacked in, you're not alive

Hail Moloch the Corruptor
Hail Moloch, the master of the net
Hail Moloch the Corruptor
Who needs friends when Moloch brings death?

The darkness of the net, is pulling me in,
I feel it when I log in,
When I'm online, I feel fine,
I found a world that's all mine

If you're not jacked in, you're not alive

Hail Moloch the Corruptor
Hail Moloch, the master of the net
Hail Moloch the Corruptor
Who needs friends when Moloch brings death?

I met a boy on the internet,
He tells me he loves me but we've never met

If you're not jacked in, you're not alive

Hail Moloch the Corruptor!
Track Name: Wrong Show
Hey! I really love your band, I used to love that show!
Aunt Hilda, Aunt Zelda & Salems my bro!
Hey! Did you know Paul Feig played Mr Poole too? (yeah!)
So coll now that he's big Hollywood news!

Though I love what you're saying, how you're making me itch,
'Cos you got Buff confused with the Teenage Witch,
I binge watch Sabrina and I love the stories,
But Melissa Joan Hart she's a fucking Tory!

Hey! Remember Penn & Teller put them on trial?
Figurin' out the family secret, took quite a while,
Hey! Remember Backstreet Boys played at The Bronze too? (No!)
And the actor who played Gordo, wasn't he Dr Evil's son? (Fuck no!)

Though I love what you're saying, how you're making me itch,
'Cos you got Buff confused with the Teenage Witch,
I binge watch Sabrina and I love the stories,
But Melissa Joan Hart she's a fucking Tory!
Track Name: Anyanka
Your skills extend beyond bad poetry,
I wish you'd rob a fucking bank for me,
A feminist hero, a righteous babe,
If you ruled the patriachy'd cave

Besties with Halfrek, another babe,
Killing men was how you made your name,
You ruled above, you ruled below,
You ruled wherever you would go

Anya, Anya, Anyanka,
This horrible world just don't deserve ya,
Anya, Anya, Anyanka,
You died for us,
We should have died for you

Righting wronged women was your life,
And for that you were vilified,
But before you go, I hope that you know,
That makes you our fucking hero

Anya, Anya, Anyanka,
This horrible world just don't deserve ya,
Anya, Anya, Anyanka,
You died for us,
We should have died for you
Track Name: Invisible Girl
"Have a great summer!",
Those words are such a bummer,
It's a kiss of death and I'm sick to death,
And I just don't care anymore

I'm fading away,
Gets worse every day,
Can you see me now?

I'm fading into the background,
I'm shouting but you can't hear a sound,
I'm just invisible but I'll be unforgettable

Look at me,
Why can't you see?
I was almost here then I disappeared,
And I just don't care anymore

I'm fading away,
Gets worse every day,
Can you see me now?

I'm fading into the background,
I'm shouting but you can't hear a sound,
I'm just invisible but I'll be unforgettable

You'll never see it coming,
You'll never see it coming,
Ignore a girl like me,
And maybe then you'll see
