Watching, I’m waiting those brunettes scare me What would I say? What will they say? They're so different than me Hard to imagine They won't understand me Hard to imagine All the pieces of me Setting people out to pasture Just imagine the laughter

Hyde 02:42
Hey little wonder, we’ve got stars in our eyes tonight Will you match me up, play me up, seize the cup? Yeah, alright So this comet, yeah we’re on it, doesn’t look like it’s stopping soon It’s blazing on by, blistering by the light of the moon It’s my turn to hyde You know it’s my turn to hyde So you tell me if I want it, I’ve gotta reach for the golden ring Well tell me what’s the price, sacrifice, for a little cha-ching And it’s amazing how you lie when the liars line up on your side I wish I could say I was better, but God knows I tried It’s my turn to hyde You know it’s my turn to hyde

I am not a mythical creature I’m made of dust from the ground, from the ground

Where’s this island where our actions have no consequence? All this drifting Ripped apart the family Split our friends We are slow in a sense We are slow in a sense All the pictures Highlight just how good things seem to be I saw you kiss him Friends before and lovers now that you've rid yourself of me We are slow in a sense We are slow in a sense We are slow in a sense We are slow in a sense I wish I had I wish I had it to do all over again

Young Punks 02:57
We’re standing at the door of the train with you and your chocolate shake The seemingly innocuous grin has us all fooled again All the young punks gather round You hope they’ll lift you but they tear us all down The pretty young girls have it made With all the boys hanging on to every word they say Why the pointed hate and the rage Why’d you go and spit in my face Why’d you have to go and run away With all that we earned that day All the young punks gather round You hope they’ll lift you but they tear us all down The pretty young girls have it made With all the boys hanging on to every word they say The pretty young girls have it made

Washed Out 03:48
When I awoke to your call And a light sharply piercing through me Bitter and sweet Bordering on epiphany I tore at my hair I laid by the water bare I didn't know what to do When I fell into that water with you I was washed out love fading If I don't watch it I'm pulled from below Tossed by the waves Caught in the undertow
7.
The Bully 03:20
Wake up, the sign on the train spits out You’re too old for this, man The lava rush and the sleepy crust Is there anything left of this shell of a plan? Silly little boys and girls You are the dogs and cats of folly Flittering with your puffy sticks Don’t you love to romance the bully? The bully, the bully ...

Please You 03:04
I'm slowly drifting Slowly drifting Out to catch the wave that leads me back to you For all my trying All my trying I've got very little to show for all I do I'm breaking up its true Trying to please you The waves keep pushing Waves keep pushing Sending me back to shore And I keep trying I keep trying Even though I know there's so much more

They’ve got you running, Mary and you know it’s not fair Looking over your shoulder Hiding silent behind your hair It’s extraordinary The way they play their games Mess with your mind, dear Mary Try to steal your life away Lock it up We are coming for you Fighting for you Against the creeps and the kooks It’s extraordinary The way they play their games Mess with your mind, dear Mary Try to take your life away It may seem like they’ll be forever changing the stakes But we know better, don’t we It’s not their life to take

Igniter 03:50
Holy, Holy Ghost Fuel the fire Draw me close pull me from the mire These broken All these broken bones and shattered wires Can spark a flame and start a fire Could start a fire I am often I am often so disillusioned I’m a fool to believe it’s in what I do Still I’m waiting Still I’m waiting and watching for the day when I can join the angels For the day when I can join the saints It’s only in and through In and through you These broken bones These shattered wires Can spark a flame Could start a fire
11.
Blinkered 03:46
We're finding our way We're finding our way From a blinkered state From a blinkered state If we’d just listen anyway Why be so stubborn anyway If we’d just listen anyway We’re blinkered We don't float We don't burn We don't freeze We're finding our way We're finding our way From a blinkered state From a blinkered state If we’d just listen anyway Why be so stubborn anyway If we’d just listen anyway We’re blinkered
