    Femme Fatality takes an artful approach to electronic pop with the long awaited 2015 release Stranger. These 5 tracks temporarily set aside some of the high-energy aspects of FF in favor of minimalistic programming and a creeping pace. True-crime stories inspired the haunting synth patching and vocal stylings while lyrics tell tales of stalkers and killers in the most unlikely of places.

Track Name: Stranger
the sort of love that makes you ache
can't see a thing but you know you're awake
at the ole gin mill where everyone knows
stranger in town and he's moving in close

i am the pleasure to your pain
i am the one who got away

the sort of nerves that show on your face
nowhere to hide so you pick up the pace
strollin' the boulevard right in plain sight
tstranger in town and he's staying all night

i am the pleasure to your pain
i am the one who got away
my love is cynical
love so criminal
i am the one who got away
Track Name: Old Fashioned
he's ordinary
not worth a glance
the year is ending
you just want to dance
a cold walk
in the setting sun

he's moving in
on your personal space
you hardly notice
the phone's in your face
cause it's all going down tonight
i hope you live up to the hype

kick off your heels
dash through the streets
he likes the struggle
baby move. just move.
oh yes i know
you can't win...
but you gotta try

he's ordinary
your certainly not
you're something special
just now how you thought
and now you lay down with the snow

you got a good look at his face
go ahead and try it, call the police
i hope you you've accepted your fate
(i'm so sorry)
he does things the old fashioned way


what we gunna do without you babe?
your're so special
Track Name: Ghost
every time i see your ghost
i never turn away
i keep my eye right on the prize babe
until it dissipates

and i know it don't mean it's real
just because i can see
until i find my way back beside you
this is the next best thing

every time i see your ghost

i know i'm not alone

every time i see your ghost
it's in a different place
i catch you my peripheral
as i pace the streets

and i'm not talking to myself
because i know you can hear
now matter what anybody else tells me
i feel you physically here

every time i see your ghost

i know i'm not alone

every time i see you're ghost
i think "is this the last time"
i couldn't suffer through it again
losing this love of mine

and every time i hear your voice
whispering in the wind
i wonder if you're still know that meant it
every word till the end

every time i see your ghost

i know i'm not alone
Track Name: One Man Town
we had a strip of highway
that still runs through
we had a filling station
and a car wash too

all those pretty women
and those hard working men
god fearing servants
all american

but everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

but everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before

old men with shot guns
a boy and his knife
some tried to run
some held their wives
some had to suffer
some tried to fight
in the end they laid down
those simple lives

everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round
everybody's gone now
it's a one man town
gotta get my story straight
before the sun comes round

this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before
this used to be a quite place
where nothing happens and no one locks their doors
these people used to feel safe
and nothing has ever gone wrong before
Track Name: Hard Part
i think that everything you see is in your head
i think that everything you see is in your head
this is the hard part. this is the bitter end.
i know that everything you see is in your head

your mouth is writing checks
your body can't cash
euphoria without out the crash
impossible. lucrative
you kill your enemies but first you let them win
they'll never call you out.
scream your name.
when you get sexual they'll show you shame.
personality: dysfunctional.
you got a hollow heart
but your ego's full

i think that everything you see is in your head
i think that everything you see is in your head
this is the hard part. this is the bitter end.
i know that everything you see is in your head

this is the hard part
i know it by heart
you're coming apart
this is the hard part
