Burnadette

Burnadette is a song that was originally supposed to be found on the cancelled companion EP for the band's War of Cyborg Liberation tour. After being heard in one of the videos from the recording sessions of the EP, nothing was mentioned of the song until their Project Atma Kickstarter. It was there that a demo of the song was given to contributors and it was announced that the song was still under consideration for the song-cycle side of The Near Future. Lead singer Brian Mazzaferri later confirmed that the song would be on the album. The song will also be a 7" Single LP that is included for any of the Kickstarter backers at the $20 or higher levels. The band is working with Digital Skylight (the company behind the cRazie$ music video) to create a video for the song.

Lyrics
Who's that girl who knows all the answers?
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
Who bombed the club and torched all the dancers?
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
Who's got the cure for the modern blues?
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
Who's got a lighter and a two-inch fuse?
Burnadette! Burnadette! Burnadette!

She's always learning the hard way
build it, break it, then
burn it down and start again
she's always burning my heart away, and yet
she's my Burnadette!

You might say that she's got a problem
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
well get in her way and see how she solves 'em
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
She's like Picasso with gasoline
(Burnadette, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
A born firestarter if you know what I mean
Burnadette! Burnadette! Burnadette!

She's always learning the hard way
build it, break it, then
burn it down and start again
she's always burning my heart away, and yet
she's my Burnadette!

She knows what you don't wanna know
She goes everywhere you don't wanna go
She's not afraid of anyone
she's there in your head
if you need her you can bet
there's a flare you can set and yell
"Burn it down Burnadette!"

She's always learning the hard way
build it, break it, then
burn it down and start again
she's always burning my heart away, and yet

She's always learning the hard way
build it, break it, then
burn it down and start again
she's always burning my heart away, and yet
she's my Burna-, she's my Burnadette!
(Burn burn, Burn-Burn-Burnadette)
