Track Name: Like, Flow
I've been running around on my very own cloud
since the moment that we met
I've been falling all over every step I take
'cause I feel so out of place

All the chemicals in my thinning blood
won't keep me from your love
and I could walk out at any time
but why would I want to leave you?

You got something I can't ignore

When I'm out of a job and my money's all gone
I will find a way to pay for you
I'm a struggling artist but I'd give it all up
if I could get another bump with you

I would kill myself for the feeling that I get when I'm a part
of the classicists, the kids who shift their cells as art

You got something I can't ignore

You pull me like a carousel
around this failing life
I got my drug, my speed,
my love is waning all the time
I'll bleed to death and swallow everything you say:
every little particle, the parts you've had enough of
Track Name: Setting Fire
they call me crazy but I don't think that I'm so bad
I'm not online every day and it makes them mad
that I don't follow them

i don't believe the doctors when they say
that I should take these pills every single day
they sound like salesmen

i question myself every time i go to bat
is that so wrong?
i take myself for granted and focus on my faults
is that so wrong?
i'm just another setting sun
just like what you'll become

i don't get angry at the thought of staying young
if my body fails me then i know its my own fault
that i let myself go

i don't believe in politics today
they make me feel like i'm a radical that should be hanged
i just want to keep my conscience clean

and if you feel like setting fire to yourself some times
then we may get along
we might make it out alive

they call me crazy but i don't think that I'm so bad
we'll run away to scandinavia and take the black

and we are never coming back
Track Name: Back to the Level
got my eye on your man
you tell me i don't understand
you can go off to the boxes
just don't go boxing me

get back to the level of the one you love

you got legs and you use them
to run away from me
you want intelligent culture
you better get away from me

get back to the level of the one you love

i don't mind you but the box says
do not open if you're honest
i don't think i want to lose anymore
i don't mind you but the box says
you're unbreakable, be cautious
i don't think i want to lose anymore

get back to the level of the one you love
Track Name: Say What You Mean
Darling I don’t know why you’re feeling sorry
For yourself, you crossed the line
Your bloody heartaches blinding to everybody
Pick yourself up off the ground

Every time I waited for you
You got so caught up with yourself that I
Lost touch with all my self-respect
I’ll never let you take me back

Hold your distance, we have a history
Of repeating our past mistakes
But if you fall down I will
Pick you up again

Every time I waited for you
You got so caught up with yourself that I
Lost touch with all my self-respect
I’ll never let you take me back

So just say what you mean

We’re lovers under cover as friends
We’re lovers under cover of a complicated other
We’re lovers on the phone again
We’re lovers under cover of the thought that this is over
And I never want to see you again

Every time I waited for you
You got so caught up with yourself that I
Lost touch with all my self-respect
I’ll never let you take me back
Every time I waited for you
You found another one to comfort you
And in the din of drugs in vacant cars
You leave, you leave me standing here
Track Name: Call Me Like You Used To
cut me all up, set me on fire
as long as you call me later on
after i drink i'll be anything you want

you don't call me like you used to, like you did

burning palms on your floor
broke down by the sound of covered eyes
that never will meet meet in our intersecting lives

you don't call me like you used to, like you did

you caught me waiting for the night that your home
you caught me waiting by the phone
