Track Name: Runaway
I met a girl last night
she wasn't wearing heels
brown eyes and long black hair
I wondered if she was real
we stood in line for an elevator ride
and all the people passed us
we were being
polite

I ran away
when she asked for my name

I got a message from a friend
who isn't real
I got a check for million dollars
in the mail
I fuckin' hate the world
and everything it does
billionaire alpha males
and trust fund thugs

I wanna run away
from the news paper

I met a girl last night
she was laughing in the dark
brown hair and blue green eyes
I wondered about her heart
she took me in
like I was some sort of stray dog
I tried to lock the door
but she tore through the wall

I ran away
I couldn't stay

These days it's all the same
rain and lies
push button activists
and political flies
I often wonder to my television
why
you never showed me any grown men cry

Did they run away
Did they run away
Just like me
Run away
Track Name: Hibernacle Shuffle
And it's alright
if we never speak again
And it's just fine
that the memories are dim
and they won't come back again
I been sleeping for a year
dreaming you were here

And I was taught
at an early age
to not chase cars
and don't run away
cause you can't come back someday
and once you're here you gotta stay

and I'm alright
and I'm OK
and it's alright
and it's OK

And I'm alright
I'm doing better every day
Yeah, I'm just fine
now my memory's erased
and my phone is a fireplace
and I'm repeating everyday
and I'm living under the floor
and I'm taping up my door
don't wanna hear it anymore

And it's alright
if we never speak again
yeah, it's just fine
that the memories are dim
and they won't come back again
I been sleeping for a year
dreaming you were here

And I'm alright
And I'm OK
Yeah, it's just fine
Go away
Track Name: Cassandra
I never meant to make you cry
I never meant to drain those rivers
in your eyes
and all the words I said were lies
had I known what they meant
I'd never said them
in my whole life

But it takes a little time
to get through
yeah it takes a little time
to get through

I never meant to say goodbye
the party's over, time to fly
throw everything away
the Styrofoam and
the left over cake
release the balloons
to the sky

It takes a little time
to get through
Yeah, it takes a little time
to get through
and there's no one there
to tell you what to do
It takes a little time
to get through

And then one morning
it's on the news
the whole damned place is on fire
and we ain't got nothing left to lose
when that day comes
what will you do
will you try to stay alive
or will you stay in your tomb

Cause it takes a little while
to get through
yeah, it takes a little while
to get through
when there's no one there
to tell you what to do
yeah, it takes a little while
to get through
Track Name: Ulterior Son/s and/or Daughter/s
Don't tell lies, with your heart or your mind
and keep track of time, or we'll lose you
and don't stay mad, let the past be the past
just don't stick around, when it's over
cause life on a chain, ain't very tame
and the day that it breaks, you'll lose yourself

and don't play the war, don't let them control your heart
cause they don't believe, and they'll use you
and don't find god, but pretend that it's there
and that it's somebody nice, who's always by your side
always on your side
when you're right

and don't think of love, no, it's just a word we made up
but pretend at that too, and use it
more than i did

Just thought I should say, cause I'll be asleep someday
and I want you to know, that I love you
every breath, every beat in your chest
every smile, even when you're upset
I am sorry, for the world
I'm so sorry, for the past
but youre still beautiful
in your gas mask
Track Name: The Circumpolar All-Stars
And I'm looking at the stars
And I'm thinking about the world
And I'm living in the past
And everything looks like
A mess

And I'm all alone
Sitting next to you
Talking on the phone
Calling me
A fool

What happened to you?
What happened to your face?
What happened to the love?
Was it always outer space?

And I hear the T.V.
Everywhere I go
And I've seen so much time
That reality is
Too slow

And I'm losing my mind
At least, It's out of control
It's out of my hands
And it's running
This show

What happened to me?
What happened? Just cut to the chase!
Is it real life or is it Memorex?
Was it always outer space?

It sucks to be me
To be right most the time
And the times that I'm wrong
Well, I feel like it was
A crime

And I'm fighting a war
A war with myself (like everyone else)
Between what's good for my soul
And what's best for my health

What happened to us?
What happened to our shape?
Heaven, love, and happiness
Were they always outer space?
Were they always outer space?
Were they always outer space?
Track Name: Tuesday Night Astral Fever
The sun's gone down
and the moon's come up
I call your name
with eyes wide shut



My mind's gone wild
it ain't talking to me
it holds my heart
and it moves my feet



The warm white stars
in a cold blue sky
I wanna go home
but I can't tonight



Now I'm lost
in the darkest light
in the same bad dream
that I had last night
Track Name: Song 7
It's hard to deal with
and no one really knows
what it is
I just feel like I'm getting old
I'm just sitting here getting old
and it's hard to deal with

I've been doing this thing
where I take all the things
that I hate
and I try to write it down
I try to get it out
and I've been home for weeks

And I got pulled by police
for not buying my stickers
and my sheets
I know you're just doing your job
you're trying to save the fucking world
from the misbehavior of the poor

We're all going to jail
for not saving our money
so well
money saves the world
hasn't money just saved the world
so we're all going to hell

Are you saved
Track Name: In the End Part 2
I bet you never saw this shit coming
I bet you thought that I'd just come back running

and we could've have built those pyramids
with our faces in the stars
and you could've made me do anything
but you told me, stay where you are
like a dog chained in a yard

And I bet you told em all
that I was nothing
before, of course, before
you changed your mind
and I bet you though that
I'd just come back running
but I found better ways to waste my time

And we could've walked those city streets
in the rain after dark
yeah, anytime, it was free
but we never left the car
never found a place to park

And I bet you never saw this shit coming
I bet you thought that I'd come back running

And I'm sure you cried
your regretful tears
for the love I may find
And I'm sure you cried
for all the years
I won't let you into my mind

and you still ask why

Cause you broke my heart
so easily
time after time
Yeah you broke my heart
so easily
time after time
And I let you down
so easily
time after time
I'm the heart you broke
real easily
time after time
Track Name: Life in a Film Still
All summer I've been asleep
waiting for winter
and I've been having this dream
that I'm meant for
nothing

Like tree inside of a seed
never grows into anything
Like a bullet fired into the sky
I'll only fall and die

Oh no, it's a bad one
it's a bad one
Oh no, it's a bad one
it's a bad one
Push it out
Push it out

This road I'm driving on
Goes nowhere, really slow
and I'll never look in your eyes
no, at the deal, I fold

Like a book thrown into the fire
never answering the why
like a kid with a mind full of pills
will never find it's own will

Oh no, it's a good one
it's a good one
Oh no, it's a good one
it's a good one
Push it out
Push it out

And everyone is lost
looking for something
so there's no one else to ask
how to get to somewhere

Like a place without any walls
Like a place without any debt
Like a place without a government god
Like a place you can live till your dead.

Oh no, it's freedom
for everyone
Oh no, it's freedom
for everyone
Don't push it out
Don't push it out

And I've been running around
like a stray dog with a theme song
and I'm not sure if it's real
but I can't leave, no I can't stop

Cause I swear I've seen it before
yeah, I've seen on channel 4
and I've heard it from the lips of the dead
and I've felt it inside of my chest

Oh no, Oh god no
It's love
Run
It's love
Run
Because no one survives
Track Name: Obviously Vague Again
Something broke my heart today
Something snapped inside my brain
Something made me sit and stare
It was something for I forgot to care
And It's something I lost somewhere
And it's something I need to get there

And the coffee is running out
And the spoon's stained brown
And the women come and go
Talking of....

-

Something woke me from that sleep
Something found me in that dream
It was a nightmare that I had
becoming too real
It was a nightmare that I was
beginning to feel

Then something opened up my eyes
And something showed me all the lies
And something filled my mind with flies
And something made me unparalyzed
And something took my hand that night
And something showed me how to fly
Track Name: The Mad King
The first time he ran away
he was 8 years old on a good day
and he ran off into the woods
with some bread and his dogs and some books
and he got lost in the trees
and he fell down to his knees
and he said
Ohhhh-ohoh
Ohhhh-ohoh

And the second time he prayed
lanky seventeen and late
in the January rain
there was nothing left to say
except
Ohhhh-ohoh
Ohhhh-ohoh

And the third time he crashed
he went spinning through the air like some trash
and their hearts were all made of glass
and they never came back
Ohhhh-ohoh
Ohhhh-ohoh

Last night I lie awake
I was dreaming
I was drowning in a lake
and all the clouds went away
and I still had nothing to say
I was dreaming
I was buried in the ground
and I wear their hearts on my crown
and I sing
Ohhhh-ohoh
the mad king
Ohhhh-ohoh
and I sing
Ohhhh-ohoh
the mad king
Ohhhh-ohoh
Track Name: The Wrath of the Preemptive Patriots
And all those poor people
Died
And all those poor people
Died

And god couldn't save their
Lives
And god couldn't save them from
The fire

And all those babies were never
Born
And all those guns were never
Fired

And all you could do was
Watch
And all you could do was
Watch

And all those crazy
Little kids
Never grew
Another inch

And all you did was
Watch
And all you did was
Watch

And all those mothers
Disappeared
And all those fathers
Were never here

And oh my god
And oh my god
Was the last thing
They said
Was the last thing
They said
Track Name: No Doors
I go outside
To the blinding light
Carried by the breeze
Like a leaf
In a stream
I dreamed I was leaving
I dreamed I was leaving
I dreamed, I was leaving
I dreamed, I was, leaving
Again

I go outside
To a man
With a knife
Wrapped up
In a towel
Screaming
Going wild
I had my reasons
I had my reasons
I had my reasons
I had my reasons
To cry

I go outside
If I can
It's too bright
The trees are all green
Coming back
To life
They got their seasons
They got their seasons
They got their seasons
They got their seasons
To live

I go outside
To the grey skies
So many graves
Better seen
By the blind
The wind, it was seething
The wind, it was seething
I dreamed I was leaving
I dreamed I was leaving
Again
Track Name: Quit yr Atrophy
Never, In my life
Did I feel
Like
Quitting
And so long
As I'm alive
May my heart keep
Ticking

I heard the news
Yeah, I heard all about it
And I got the blues
For the things that weren't
Shouted

I exercise, my right
To do nothing
But I recognize
That my heart stops
Pumping

And I heard the news
Go on, tell me more about it
Because I wanna know
What makes you
Shout it

You say:
All we need
Is someone
To save us
Someone
We believe
That will never
Betray us

And I
Don't believe
We can't
Save ourselves
And I Won't believe
We can't
Save our world

(please)

Wake up
Track Name: I Miss You
I wake up, surprised
in the sunshine
and I ask myself again
do I miss you
I roll out of bed
I drink some coffee
eat some bread
I try to think of what's ahead
but I miss you

And when I go outside
Into the air, into the light
I see you everywhere
but I miss you
cause you're not really there
it's just your eyes, your height, your hair
it's just your laugh, your smell, your care
Yeah, I miss you

And the sun goes down on me
Again

I am all alone
sitting by the phone
staring at the screen
'cause I miss you
I listen to the stars
from my concrete parking yard
and I wonder where you are
god I miss you

And in the middle of the night
I can hardly fight
off and on and goes the lights
and I miss you
I wonder when it ends
when I forget
where it begins
and I fall asleep again
and I miss you

And the sun comes up on me
Again

I wake up surprised
in the sunshine
and I ask myself again
do I miss you
do I miss you
do I miss you
I miss you
miss you
