Track Name: Remember
see if you can see me with your heart
it's easy to remember if you know your part
come ba ck close down when you start
like a rubber band rubber band rubber band rubber band.

get along if you think that you can
write a note on the back of your hand
take a long look back at your plans
cuz you're the other man other man other man other man

we can forgive you, if you can forget
find us an excuse like you can't yet
we can forgive you, let the past set
quit giving excuse quit getting upset

see if you can see me with your heart
it's easy to remember if you know your part
take a look back, now, as long as you can
or you're a dead man dead man dead man dead man
Track Name: Molina Ripoff
Tell them I might not make it
Tell them I'm gonna miss them all
Too late for that kind of talk

Two nights ago
You promised me you're gonna make it right
Two nights to go with this light
Two nights ago
You promised me you're gonna try try try try
Two nights to go with this light

This takes it all away
This takes it all back
Too late to go home, you know

Two nights ago
Someone's blood was gonna spill outside
Two nights was all I could take
Two nights ago
Everyone was gonna cry cry cry cry
Two nights was all I'm asking

I keep asking the wrong questions
I keep thinking that you're gonna slip
i keep hovering on obsession
i keep thinking that you're gonna stay... around...
don't stay... around...
Track Name: Don't You Ever
you're not likely to get a reaction
take a detour with your distractions

another time, maybe

just think about


don't you ever wish you were just a little harder to find
don't you ever wish you had just a little more time
don't you ever think about, don't you ever disagree
don't you ever wish you were right back here with me

you're not like them, keep it open
take a deep breath, now and then
lost track of time, baby
just keep em out

don't you ever wish you were just a little harder to find
don't you ever wish you had just a little more time
don't you ever think about, don't you ever disagree
don't you ever wish you were right back here with me

all this time to think it over

all this time to get away

all the lines keep saying

i've got a chance

to see ya.... again


don't you ever wish you were just a little harder to find
don't you ever wish you had just a little more time
don't you ever think about, don't you ever disagree
don't you ever wish you were right back here with me
Track Name: Aeroplane Mode
when ya get back (when ya get back....)
would ya tell me
how ya really feel, about it
how ya really feel


could say nothing
could say love
could say nothing
could stay above


when you take off ...
would you look down...
and see me, forget you
and see me for the first time...


could say nothing
could say love
could say nothing
fly above


look out your window
take it all in
don't matter what now
don't matter when
just look out and take it in, just take it in


when ya get back (when ya get back....)
would ya tell me
how ya really feel
Track Name: Some Kinda
i've seen a snowball's chance in hell
and you think you broke our spell
and you never seem to tell
this isn't going very well


take it up and take it out on my brain
don't get up i'm walking out again


it's gonna take all night
you're gonna get uptight
and if we get the green light
we're gonna be all right

take it up and take it out on my brain
don't get up i'm walking out again

looking for a scapegoat to set the tone
looking for anything, to show you know
all about, the sound, the slow drone
can't get too far when you're alone

when will the circus come?
and make my guitar numb?
and feel the sweetest drums?
some kinda strange freedom and dumb and dumb and dumb
Track Name: Just Like That
it's rare that you'd ever let it happen
it's weird that you'd ever let it go
it's not like you'd ever seen this side of it
it's weird that you'd ever know

i'm not ever gonna say i won't try
i'm not ever gonna say i'm through
i'm not ever gonna seal myself off
it's weird that you never knew

and just like that
and it was just because

and just like that kiss we couldn't dare
it's like it never was

i'm not liking this kid i've become
i'm not liking this shade of gray
i don't want you ever seein' this side of it
it's weird that you'd want to stay

and just like that
and it was just because
and just like that kiss we couldn't dare
it's like it never was


when we break down
what we're trying to say

when we break down everything comes crashing our way
when we try it
what we're trying to say

when we try it everything comes crashing our way

and just like that
and it was just because
and just like that kiss we couldn't dare
it's like it never was
Track Name: Please Cantcha Please
please canthca please cantcha please cantcha ever

leave whenya leave whenya leave whenya saidya

breathe baby breathe baby breathe baby take it away

hey hey, take it away from me

need whatcha need whatcha need whatcha thinkin?
see everything everything everything is
good whenya good whenya good whenya take it away
hey hey, take it away from me



maybe the same thing in happening again

maybe the same thing in happening again
please canthca please cantcha please cantcha ever

maybe the same thing in happening again
breathe baby breathe baby breathe baby take it

maybe the same thing in happening again
see everything everything everything is
Track Name: Tape It to Your Heart
She's out painting werewolf cars
Trading ideas with the stars
Concentrating on what's ours
and her illusion....

tape it to your heart
keep it from your friends
don't tell anybody
keep it hidden till the end

tape it to your heart
take it everywhere
don't tell anybody
you got nothing to spare

tape it to your heart
keep it inside
don't tell anybody
you got nothing to hide

tape it to your heart
let it all go
don't tell anybody
what they don't wanna know (they already know)

She's looking back through vampire tears
trying on a new sincere
and blanking out too many years
of no solution


tell me what is THE RIGHT TIME!

tell me when is the right time
to let it all go
tell me when is the right time
let everybody know
Track Name: Fast Enough
I can't keep running (fast enough)
I can't keep closing myself off
to no one, off to no one else
i guess it's done

I can't keep running (fast enough)
I can't keep telling you I'll
Find ourselves a
new place to call
home. and at least I've found something
at least i've got you
to call me over, to call it through

to call out what i've become
to say it'll all blow over
as we grow older
and say the things that i want to hear
and say it'll all blow over
as your heart goes colder
and tell me what i'm looking for is you

i can't keep running
i can't keep holding myself back
forever, back from telling
you and at least i've found something
at least i've got you
to pull me open, to pull me through

to pull off the mask i wear
to say it'll all blow over
as we grow older
and say the things that i'd never dare
to say it'll all blow over
as your heart goes colder
and tell me what i'm looking for is you.

not to sound so ordinary
it's got to last a long time, baby
not to sound like all the others
to say i love you over and over

i can't keep running (fast enough)
Track Name: Assholes Are Everywhere
can't second guess it's obnoxious
vote second best and you'll be done
don't even mess with other options
don't go unless you pick the right one

it's not like them to give a fat care
go be like them and give a nice prayer
can't be surprised with feeling hot air
don't leave cuz assholes are everywhere

this was a laugh for a long time
now we've gone past any red lines
and this new blood test's a peace sign
already books about the decline

it's not like we can leave the armchair
they're shouting down oh would you be fair
can't be surprised with this nightmare
don't go out, assholes are everywhere

you say nothing's wrong
with this nothing song
and we'll just go along
to see it all gone

don't be distracted by lens flare
don't get sucked in by the blank stare
don't forget all about the affairs
don't go out assholes are everywhere

don't be impressed with the fanfare
don't believe the man with the fake hair
please don't give up on what ya do care
don't give up, assholes are everywhere
Track Name: Leroy
I'm not forgetting 'bout, not falling down
i'm not for foolin' 'round, not breaking crowns

tell that to michael, tell it to leroy
tell those you left behind
why don't you
say what you're thinkin'
say it to anyone
say what's been on your mind

it's not the time for that, not lookin' out
it's not my priority not what i'm about

tell that to michael, tell it to leroy
tell those you left behind
why don't you
say what you're thinkin'
say it to anyone
say what's been on your mind

wear your heart on your sleeve
cuz it's not beating anyway
lay your heart next to me
go to the window and take in horizons
go to the door and see

i'm not for foolin' round, not painting towns
i'm not forgetting 'bout, not breaking down
Track Name: You Get the Idea
Boy... set out to destroy
the little enjoy-ment
to take it out on me

till... i've taken my pills
to fake fulfill-ment
you take it outta me

when i tell you 'bout it, you laugh it off
when i tell you 'bout it, you leave me
hang-ing on!
(when you tell tell tell me about it)

free... like they decree
'bout some agree-ment
but they don't think of me

stand... while you still can
cuz that newsman-meant
you're something beautiful

talk it away you're making too much sense
put it away cuz you're talking past tense
reverse the words when you're on the fence
eat up our brains just a little bit, eat up our brains just a little bit

tell... that you're doing well
no longer hell-bent
to take it out on me

you... you're feeling screwed
with your recruit-ment
you take it outta me

you take it outta me!
you get the idea!
Track Name: Small Bear of Honey
I've got a sixth sense about this
a sick sense of greatness
a feeling i won't miss again

it's time i wrote my big ending
straight up ascending
pound of flesh i'm spending again

So much for money
small bear of honey
costs you
more than you can taste
more than you can taste

we're going out on a limb here
switching to high gear
might maybe disappear again

i'm not much for talking
might find it shocking
secrets unlocking again

so much for honest
i've made a big mess
more than i can waste
So much for money
small bear of honey
costs you
more than you can taste
more than you can taste

come back and take a minute
come back it's (fffff) fine
come take off the big brain for a minute
come tell me why

i've got a sixth sense about you
a sick sense you'll break through
a feeling i can't shake again

it's time I looked toward the mainstream
and root for the home team
cut down on daydreams again
