Unfaithful 02:28
I told you I was gonna move And live off the land out in Montana You said I would stand to lose the love of the lights the absence of darkness I came a long way today just to see you on my own And I may have moved away but you’re still the same now that I’m home May You always be unfaithful To me Spent a lot of time with you Drinking in bars and lounging in backyards And you never had to choose What you would do if this fell apart I came a long way today just to see you on my own And I may have moved away, but you’re still the same now that I’m home May you always be unfaithful (x2) to me The city that never sleep always slept around on me (x2) May you always be unfaithful (x3) to me

you can’t crawl til you lie on your belly You can’t walk til you get your knees dirty You always said that you’d hit the ground running and you never looked back so you’d never look funny 2+2 ain’t never gonna equal 5 and look at you you’re always locked outside lookin’ in through the fogged up window In a pinch you can’t plan how life goes I want for you Everything you’ve always wanted You always do hit and miss then find your footing But still we’re sold Everything we’ve never wanted Baby steps to the front of the party then a a break dance in the middle of mardi gras It takes time to get where you’re going you can’t Jump line at least you were trying though I want for you Everything you’ve always wanted You always do hit and miss then find your footing We’re always told no one wants to die alone If we are bold we can pawn the picket fences But still we’re sold Everything we’ve never wanted Well everyone else will tell you everything you ever wanted to hear But no one else can show you, what you can’t see all by yourself

Wake Up 04:38
Blacked out, in the middle of a Backyard, in the corner of a July July, not making any sense and You & I, not taking any chances We are, the kings of everything and So far, no one says any different Put off, what you can do tomorrow And fall, into another summer This is why we’re always on the cusp of Never doing anything with ourselves We’ll make our millions then we’ll head off for the coast of Spain We’ll live the high life and we’ll never drink the cheap champagne We’ll catch ‘em sleeping then we’ll teach ‘em all to rue the day We’ll find our passion then we’ll all be almost on our way Just as soon as we wake up Just as soon as we wake up Winter, drops a blanket down and Splinters, all the things we’ve battened Down to, our own procrastination How soon, will we dessert our station Winds change and bring an angry promise With haste, we move to strike our comments Records, collecting dust in corners Bad Nerves, over time are fostered

Consolation 03:18
She can’t even fight her way Out from under yesterday Sometimes when the tide rolls in She falls deep inside of it She’s lyting awake in bed again thinkin’ ‘bout another plan I can’t tell her anything she don’t know before it’s said I’m sorry it’s OK, things will run their course Tomorrow’s another day, you can’t take things by force Things we tell each other It doesn’t make it better You’re alright We’ll be fine Monday’s rough Friday comes All I want for her to know there’s nowhere else I’m gonna go go I’ll write her this silly song The same damn words that others sung Everything seems infinite Walking toward it in the wind But everything gets clearer though I just wish that she could know Sometimes when the tides rolls in She falls deep inside of it Everything seems inifinite Walking toward it in the wind

I have never even seen a ballet I have never been to Europe Wouldn’t know the slightest thing about it But you could always seem to make up Our own reality, surreal surroundings Another late night, another play time I don’t wanna see the sun in the morning It’ll rise, close your eyes We’ll let the night just peel away at the corners Half past 5, it’s alright Put the day off, don’t get caught, we should never let this night end. Everything we’ve ever done together melts away into a fog now Even though I’ll never quite remember I’ll always know we burnt the town down To the ground again, and became fast friends But everything ends hold onto that feeling I don’t wanna see the sun in the morning It’ll rise, close your eyes We’ll let the night just peel away at the corners Half past 5, it’s alright You, it’s all because of you that we’re hiding Let the time slip on by Put the day off, don’t get caught, we should never let this night end. Someday down the road we’ll both look back and we’ll remember It’s all we could do Cut the night in two Then go our separate ways and try to piece it back together What you can’t relive You should just take in

Rewind, your just a child full of brave inaction sometimes, you got the feeling you could make it happen feels nice, never knowing you could break wide open Limelight, living at the center of attention so you wanted the american dream we can be different, we can be perfect it’s not all it’s coked up to be reading the misprints, trying to get it you don’t wanna get lost, and we’re tired of watching you meltdown push your way to the top just to have another first class breakdown and you say you got robbed, another story of a tinsel takedown over, and over, and over, and over again forward, you got to find a way to get momentum straight for, everything you ever thought you wanted be warned, everybody wants a piece of the action white noise, don’t lose yourself in the horizon

Again 02:59

You are the sunshine in my eyes The white hot blinding light You are the anchor to my soul to keep me down below You’re always in my way Never feeling OK Maybe this time we’ll say What we never want to talk about we’re never honest with ourselves so I’ll Divorce Myself So long to wholesome happiness and good old fashioned bliss So long to everything I’ve dreamed and everything I need You’re always in my way Never feeling OK Maybe this time we’ll say What we never want to talk about we’re never honest with ourselves You always want to lay around, and I’m always building my own hell so I’ll Divorce Myself Like a sun burnt shoulder that never seems to heal Like a wind-blown shelter that doesn’t hold a seal You can take your ego and then we’ll split the rest or You can go with the flow and not be such a pest always in the way, why not today? You’re always in my way Never feeling OK Maybe this time we’ll say What we never want to talk about we’re never honest with ourselves You always want to lay around, and I’m always building my own hell so I’ll Divorce Myself

Jimmy’s in a band in LA Pissing his life down the drain Jenny’s at a school in Rhode Island And no one gives a damn but her parents And though they’ve never been in the same room The two encounter all the same issues Ask ‘em bout their plans for tomorrow They’ll tell you that they’ve already lost hope No one seems to wonder why Everyone before us Was always doing everything right Maybe it’s becasue we’re all wrapped up in ourselves and we can’t ever keep from losing sight They take the money and run They take the money and run cuz maybe all along they take all they want from us They take the money and run Used to be if you worked hard You could always count on going far That was long before all our fathers decided that they’d ilfer the coffers No one seems to wonder why Everyone before us Was always doing everything right Maybe it’s becasue we’re all wrapped up in ourselves and we can’t ever keep from losing sight They take the money and run They take the money and run cuz maybe all along they take all they want from us They take the money and run So Jimmy went and sold his guitar and got himself a job in law Jenny went and started a band and stuck her middle finger up to the man

Build it up just to tear down Make something nothing, you’re gonna wreck this town Self destruct don’t take too much time Make nothing something if you’d be so kind Isn’t it the middle of the night Got a little time to kill Sitting on the windowsill Smoking cigarettes to ease my mind I got another day ahead Not sure if I can face it yet I’m never gonna make this one right Build it up just to tear down Make something nothing, you’re gonna wreck this town Self destruct don’t take too much time Make nothing something if you’d be so kind How did I get so far down the hole Never knowing what to say Don’t think I can find a way Out from under all this on my own I don’t have the self control I feel like I am getting old Don’t know how I’ll make it down the road. Build it up just to tear down Make something nothing, you’re gonna wreck this town Self destruct don’t take too much time Make nothing something if you’d be so kind
