Track Name: If I Knew Everything
If I knew everything, would I be alive?
Would I be the same boy you knew before?
If I knew everything, could I touch the sky?
And then fall to the ground, and ask for more?

Would I be the same boy
That I was before
Will my life be strange
Would I ever change?

What if I knew nothing, would I be dead?
Would roses still smell good? Would they still be red?
What if I knew nothing, could I be the brightest light you see?
Would I even care? I wouldn't know where I want to be

Would I be the same boy
That I was before
Will my life be strange
Would I ever change?
Track Name: Street Chic
manic pixie nighmare
haunting me i swear
i know absolutely nothing
but you must be onto something

she comes from a really good family
she knows what she's gonna do without me
the kind of girl that won't let me be
she's a lean mean blue haired street chic
lean mean blue haired street chic

i won't pick the nice girl
cause you've taken the cake
i should have picked the nice girl
i've made a big mistake

knows exactly how to make me blue
she can read my mind and speak hers too
won't be mistaken for a fool
she's a lean mean blue haired street chic
lean mean blue haired street chic

torn between two lovers
but who will love me more
i wish i could fast forward
then it wouldn't be so awkward
Track Name: Make a Move
Sitting on my couch, talking over a movie
I don’t mind, cause you’re more interesting to me
Two’s a party, but three or four’s a crowd
When I look at you, my thoughts become so loud

You know I want to make a move
But I don’t know how to
I know you want to make a move
And I’m glad you know how to

Trying to find alone time
You know theres 7 billion minus two too many people in this world
But when I close my eyes, and I know you’re beside me
We go together to my dreams

You know I want to make a move
But I don’t know how to
I know you want to make a move
And I’m glad you know how to

Finally it’s just you and me, the world is silent
and I wonder if you see
That together you and I, we are so vibrant
you hold my hand, oh yeah

You know I want to make a move
But I don’t know how to
I know you want to make a move
And I’m glad you know how to
Track Name: Silence
hot summer days, walking in silence
feel a cool breeze in my hair, the sun is a diamond
everything is fine, but not always alright
in silence, silence

mid day sunset, my shadows beside me
my hearts beating like jets, when you're beside me
everything is fine, but not always alright
in silence, silence

hot summer days, walking in silence
feel a cool breeze in my hair, the sun is a diamond
everything is fine, but not always alright
in silence, silence
in silence, silence
Track Name: Couldn't Think of the Words
My words don’t have the same effect that they used to
Cause I feel I’ve said too much
I couldn’t think of the words that I wanted to say
cause I’ve run out of things to say
I feel the same way I felt last year and that’s kind of boring to hear
but it’s none of your concern how I feel

and I couldn’t think of the words
and now it’s too late
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

It’s always a good day when I get to see you
Why didn’t I talk to you sooner
There wasn’t the opportunity, you were all by yourself
and I was with someone else
But now you’re with me, you look fine I look 12
and you’re no longer by yourself

and I couldn’t think of the words
and now it’s too late
ooh ooh ooh
ooh ooh ooh

My words they don’t come out the way I’d like them to
and whatevers in my heads not the same
i’d like to go out and have some pizza with you
but i wouldn’t know what to say
i’ll think of something nice, then my thoughts become regret
because you’d have gone away by then
Track Name: You're So Cold
it's no surprise that you won't leave your house tonight,
it's no surprise that you're too busy to take my calls,
does having a heart of ice make you feel right?
banging my fists and my head at the walls

you're so cold, you're so cold
you're so cold, you're so cold

you're so cold, you're so cold
you're so cold, you're so cold

on the search for a girl who's like me
someone that's hard to know, her puzzle is tricky
the air i want to breathe will be her perfume
for that's how i know she's walked into the room

but you're so cold, you're so cold
you're so cold, you're so cold
Track Name: Leave Me Behind
sitting in the same restaurants
all 6 of them i can’t pick my favourite one
i eat the same thing everywhere i go
i’m not afraid to try new things i just find comfort in routine
and every day i try to break one but in doing so another one comes around

getting close to anyone was my biggest mistake
all the things i liked i just had to fake
and their careless antics and lunatics on their couch
made me such a grouch
when i’m trying to eat my breakfast and i see pictures of this oh no

leave me behind and go away i’ll solve my problems anyway
i don’t need you here interrupting my business while you’re trying to go out there
and make something of yourself thats okay, i'll figure it out

she sits down by the window, writes down her ideas, ready to face the world
she sips from her coffee, stares at these brown buildings laid out in front of her
so much on her mind, no one can waste her time, but her pen and notebook do you
not much of a waste, it’s an acquired taste, one that she’s grown accustomed to
Track Name: Personification
this girls just like a bird, she won't keep her word
because she's repeating everything she knows
she likes getting high, won't tell a lie
because she's flown across this road before

she goes away every winter
doesn't care who sees her

this girl likes having fun, but she's never won
the game of life and she'll disagree
she'll say it's not fair, and won't tell you where
she goes because she's flying far away

she goes away every winter
doesn't care who sees her

this girls just like a bird, she won't keep her word
because she's repeating everything she knows
she likes getting high, won't tell a lie
because she's flown across this road before
Track Name: New Home
look at me when i’m tired thats how i’ll appear when i’m old and dead
no longer the demon, the one that lives inside your head
been there for long enough, now you’ve gone somewhere else
He needs a new home, a place where he can stay

A heart shaped room to slide the curtains open
Red is the colour of the wall and the floor he now lives in
Yeah this place is better, much better than your mind
But black is your soul, whatever is left of it

in the middle of your heart i’ve built a temple
one that i will respect forever
i’ve found myself a brand new home
one that i can call my own
all i know is all i see
and the blood that flows brings me to my knees
Track Name: Earthquakes
it's not about how good you are
it's about how good you want to be
I tremble when I kiss you
you take the earthquakes out of me
you may be bad but you are loved and you're beautiful to me
you may be bad but you are loved and you're beautiful to me

theres no use going back to yesterday cause I was a different person then
theres no use going back to yesterday cause I was a different person then
theres no use going back to yesterday cause I was a different person then

it's not about how good you are
it's about how good you want to be
I tremble when I kiss you
you take the earthquakes out of me
you may be bad but you are loved and you're beautiful to me
you may be bad but you are loved and you're beautiful to me
Track Name: Sadist
my mind's in the sun, feeling so free
my thoughts never been this true
the house by the ocean is waiting for me
the house by the ocean blue
i sit by the flowers waiting for you
and see eyes that can kill me
they're so blue that i don't know what to do,
i guess i'll just leave you be

i know why you give me things to endure
you have this point of view because you're insecure
don't have better things to do and you get on my nerves

i don't want you to water down my stuff
i wanna say what i want
don't want you to tell me what to do
cause it won't ever be enough
i want to defy you and make you mad
cause i'm happy when you're in pain
i want you to feel bad about yourself
cause all you do is hurt my brain

i know why you give me things to endure
you have this point of view because you're insecure
don't have better things to do and you get on my nerves

my mind's in the sun, feeling so free
my thoughts never been this true
the house by the ocean is waiting for me
the house by the ocean blue
i sit by the flowers waiting for you
and see eyes that can kill me
they're so blue that i don't know what to do,
i guess i'll just leave you be
Track Name: Balloon
The clouds shield me from infinity
My love shields my mind
Discovering lifes fragility
Not the best thing one could find
One stands in a balloon filled with hot air
To go into the sky i would not dare
I need you to hold the rope and bring me down when I get way past my head
Feces and cigarettes, olfactory delight
Anchored to the sand, goodbye says my flight
Molten goo asphyxiates me, my mind leaves my thoughts
My teachers think i'm crazy, while they're taking shots
Oh man
Track Name: Stranger
she wasn't looking at you
she was looking out the window
she wasn't searching for you
she was trying to find herself

look in front of you and not inside your brain
the dim street lights are watching over you
watch your step but not too closely
make your turn before you miss again

she wasn't waiting for you
she was waiting for your time to be over
while you waited two years for her to fluff someone else
she walks by you like you're a stranger

look in front of you and not inside your brain
the dim street lights are watching over you
watch your step but not too closely
make your turn before you miss again

she wasn't smiling at you
she was smiling at her friend that was beside her
laughing at all the things that she can say and do
passing by you cause you're a stranger
stranger
stranger
stranger
stranger
stanger
Track Name: Burden
the blurry way on a saturday it makes me feel alright
when mom comes home i'll be new again, and i'll feel better then
dad's okay in a hundred ways, and you can't stop him now
everything's fine i'm just wasting time, living my life

i don't need you and you clearly don't need me
you're a burden on my person
a burden

rainy days only yesterday, i'm moving faster now
i don't care about the weather, man, i just want to know how
to brighten the hell out of tomorrow, for my friends and for i
they'll thank me and i'll thank you for leaving me alone

i don't need you and you clearly don't need me
you're a burden on my person
a burden
