Track Name: Bed Head
Is it so wrong that I want to be right for once?
Why can't I just tell a story?
No certain left for us at all.
Im a loser with no glory.

And I get scared by open doors.
And I'm terrified of the thoughts I've thought before.
I get scared by open doors.
And I'm terrified, I'm terrified.

So I'll jump into the freeway.
Only then I'll know.
If death's behind me in the dirt.
Or the other place I'll go.

And I get scared by open doors.
And I'm terrified of the thoughts I've thought before.
I get scared by open doors.
And I'm terrified, I'm terrified.
Track Name: Swamp Party
Who is this, mask or creature?
No one could see.
Plaster a cast of his hand.

I never was much for dancing.
I probably never will be.

Does anyone have the time?

Don't have to be faster.
Faster than that thing.
Only be faster than you.
Track Name: This Ain't the Hyatt
You were the head of the pack.
You always said you had my back.
Through insolence and the insecure.
But I think you lost track,

Of the point of going on.
What's the point of going on?
Around here?

I can't see straight.
I can't see straight.
Its time for you to complicate.
The world and all we live in.
Above it all.

But she's got nothing else to say.
I'll be the one to walk away.
This time.
Track Name: Quiet Down
When the time is right, we won't have to fight it again.
I quiet down when I realize you're my only friend.

Too little to late, we can't wait for fates to change.
I quiet down when I realize we all die with age.

Look to the sunrise.
I see it in you're eyes.
For tomorrow, a new day comes.

I won't rely on you.
Track Name: Bedroom Floors
Why did I have to know you?
Why did I have to meet you?
Don't go loving him cause I've been gone for a while.

Typical is all I have.
Typical is all I'd ever need.
Like a moth to flame.
It's always the same.
I'll always be around.

We can share each other's clothes.
Share each other's sense of humor.

Where have I been I don't know.
Look outside your window.
'Cause it takes two to tango.
Track Name: Secret Doors
Never knew enough about yourself.
Learn something new, anyway.
Never did that thing you wanted to do.
Before you left that day.

Because you don't care.
No you don't care.
You just don't care.
Where's the summer gone? Anyway?

Come on in, and hang your coat.
Stay for a while.
Come on and let me see your face.
Let me see you smile.

Oooooooooooh.

Because you don't care.
No you don't care.
You just don't care.
Where's the summer gone? Anyway?
Track Name: Stay Home Instead
Water bottles overflow the bed.
It's OK I'd rather stay home instead.

What do you want from me?
How's it supposed to be?

Your eyes are faded.
I'm staring at the ground.
You keep it complicated.
But you're never around.

I can't tell if this is real or not.
Will I be OK tonight?
I'm too damn nice to know you.
Track Name: Shelf Life
She's so close, but so distant now.
She says she just can't sleep.

Yesterday's just another promise,
You can't seem to keep.

Whistle a song to fit the mood.

Why can't you just let it go?

Paler, than death itself.
You speak the truth.
Through your scars.
And the messages, you couldn't send.
So bring a pen.
So you can write down nothing.

These white walls will be my home.
Track Name: Keyed Cars
Do we have an auctioneer?
A volunteer?
Miss pioneer of the school year?

Communicate through messages keyed into cars.
But don't go too far.

So take the hand that no one gave you.
So you can hold his cigarettes.

Do we have an auctioneer?

But don't go to far.

So take the hand that no one gave you.
So you can hold his cigarettes.

In the spring we look towards the summer.
In the winter we remember the fall.
You sit there in a chair when you're older.
And not remember anything at all.
Track Name: Melted Early
One foot out the door way
There goes the whole day.
The snow melted anyway.

What happened last night?
You won't tell me.
We don't know what's going on.

'Cause Im a fool.
Oooh.
I melted early.

What happened last night?
You won't tell me.
We don't know what's going on.

One foot out the doorway.
There goes the whole day.
It all melted early anyway.

'Cause I'm a fool.
Oooh.
I melted early.

Early.
