Dirty Work 03:07
Something new was clear to me when I laid in the dark I may know life's great mysteries but I don't know my heart oh, foolish boy foolish boy tell me what you've become so do your dirty work think about it kid, is it worth what you're giving up? what about me? what about me? what about me? yeah, what about me? we make ships to sail the sea glass to see the stars but how can we be wise if we're still strangers to our hearts? oh, foolish boy foolish boy tell me what you've become in your eyes, you're dumbstruck you're getting by with some dumb luck you change your mind you're running all the time until you bring yourself down

Boy 03:02
I met a man with a broken dream talking bout how it used to be he said, “boy do it while you can, cause nothing good’s waiting at the end” our bodies sing when our heads are still late at night’s when I start to feel that nothing’s right I knew the words when I had a song but everything’s quiet when you’re gone I’m just a boy falling over myself oh, I got lost in the material trying to get back to the moment I fell for you we do the dance and we make a mess keep it up till we lose our breath sit back and think it through, there’s nothing left for me to do don’t be so afraid to make mistakes we’re remembered by the messes that we make (so let’s make them all) the tricky rhythm that you fake, you fake, don’t mean a thing until you start to fall

Sorry 2.0 03:12
Even when the empress sung the anthem of the locals she did not belong So it goes with me and you I will never understand the things you do this is just a version of I'm sorry oh my love was strange and made you change your mind can't you hear the chorus of "I'm sorry" I won't fake the feeling just to make you mine late at night I hear the sound a hundred fleshy hammers nail their lovin' down so when you left I knew you would I just don't know how to make you stay for good (give a little)

Cats 03:23
Please don't hurt my friend he don't understand please take me instead just please don't hurt my friend Please don't hurt my friend hold your hungry hands I can't stop my heart from believing take my sleep but don't take my dreaming please don't hurt my friend appreciate my woe every single soul's just a toll you gotta pay when you die a debt you've been collecting every second of your miserable life cats don't like me thinking so they try to make me feel like it's wrong tiny bits of doubt will drown the loudest voices out with a song
6.
those days are gone when I felt like I was next to you oh something’s wrong it’s strange how we change the way we do where we belong we were lost and I never knew those days are gone those days are gone I’m feeling like a ghost, yeah bright white, one color at the most, yeah come tie tie tie me like a noose, yeah don’t worry be happy those days are gone and we laughed we we let em go oh we were wrong about ourselves but now we know you were the sun then you’re dirt now you’re snow those days are gone those days are gone I feel like your lovin’ it gets me down
7.
I know, I know, I know I ain’t ever gonna be your man I said oh, I’m good on my own I lie, I cheat, I steal but I ain’t ever found a love like this I can’t lie you know it gets me by (somebody said) heaven is a crowded bed I’m dyin to be alone so leave me on the altar heaven don’t turn your head I’m tryin to be a stone walkin on the water I know, I know, I know I ain’t ever gonna understand I said oh, what’s there to know? I lie, I cheat, I steal but I ain’t ever found a love like this but I try you know it gets me by blue, black, green all the colors bleed into one dark scene after all

Wide Awake 03:12
wide awake fast asleep all I am is a song, I sing consistently (inconsistently) when I left myself I saw the milky way we’re a star at the end of an arm I know is throwing us away there’s no holy war fought over our souls the devils and the gods have forgotten we existed long ago
9.
How Low 03:11
am I like a bad dream did I make you feel, like you were the ghost and I was real? was I real? am I like your last dream? am I still the same? something in your eyes said that I changed how low? am I one of god’s dreams he’s having of himself? am I a reflection of someone else? am I just a sad dream? am I calling in the dark? I slowly fade away the days when we’re apart did you even notice me in the background? are you missing me so easily? I’m calling out…
10.
oh, the storm has come again we’re dancing in the eyes of hurricanes we do not fear the temporary though there are so very few of us left, I still believe in you I still believe in you, and you, and you this is what you get my inspiration everyone was wrong but you still believe this is what I am just a sad example this is what you get for living honestly so, “in sickness and in health” the holy vows I whispered to myself but never dared to speak aloud oh, the angle of your knees I memorized you, my isosceles the shape, the lines, the emptiness inside do you notice me?
