Track Name: Ink Out
she wants you to draw the line to see through her clouds now....

Track Name: Understated Limits of Grace
you aren't the same and i think it's been all erased
well i think i caught you dreaming, and i'm a dreamer too, yeah
remember when you said the world feels just like dead weight
and everybody's sinking, everybody's sinking

you wanted everything. you can have it all
you've thought of everthing. you got it all

the saints
it's not enough to cut to the chase
and martyrs tourtured
you've gotta gotta learn from mistakes
the saints
the understated limits of grace
and martyrs tortured

you stare through the window for storms tamed and tortured

remember rooftop days with broken satellites in outer space
and staring at your ceiling while the city's sinking
you in your hand me downs, and i in my sweaters
you can keep the excuse as you read the letters

you wanted everything. you can have it all
you've thought of everything. you got it all

the saints
it's not enough to cut to the chase
and martyrs tourtured
you've gotta gotta learn from mistakes
the saints
the understated limits of grace
and martyrs tortured
Track Name: Led Astrea
you're so pretty and you're so sweet
you think your dreams are so unique
but it's over and out

you can say all of those things, but i never really wanted to know
you can do whatever you want, but it's really just over the phone
you can say all those things, but i never really wanted to know
you can do whatever you want, but i really just want you to go

and she can make you scream alright when you're wasting your time
her lips can make you scream alright when you're losing your mind
and we can make you scream alright when you're wasting your time

you're so dirty and you're so clean
it makes my head hurt when you're obscene
but it's over and out

you can say all of those things, but i never really wanted to know
you can do whatever you want, but it's really just over the phone
you can say all those things, but i never really wanted to know
you can do whatever you want, but i really just want you to go

away
Track Name: Best Bets and Regrets
i know i can be so sarcastic
please don't take my static
as a reason to tune me out,
cut my line, or battle my mouth

don't lift me up only to be let down
i'll clean up my act if you calm down

it's not like i'm service slamming
so please stop jamming
all my signals sent out to you
they never get through, to you from me,
from one to three, like one two three

don't lift me up only to be let down
i'll clean up my act if you calm down
Track Name: Pen and Pavement
she'll think of him on her way across town
and when she sleeps she keeps her tv up loud
she'd like to think that she is over him
and she don't need her medicine

and just when you thought nothing would work out right
who came through?
so i'm sorry if things have changed
everything will be alright when you sleep
tonight everything is a pen and some pavement
and a heart that separates us

she'll say his name everynight before she sleeps
and turn up the radio to drown it out
but it's too loud! it's too loud!

she wants you to say that everytyhing will be ok.
she wants you to lie and say everything will be alright
she wants you to say that everything isn't everything
she wants you to say everything everything everything
Track Name: Ice Cream
fell in love at 22
turn it in you want me to
try try

you're a ways away
and you keep on moving
you're a ways away
and you keep on moving

this time i think it's over
and last night i think it's safe to say we're through
this time i think it's over
and last night i think it's safe to say we're through
we're through

were we a waste of time
you're such a waste of time

she said it's the same thing every night
she said it's the same thing
she said it's the same thing every night
she said it's the same thing every night
Track Name: In Orbit
tonight i'm wound up and i'm reckless
my life is like a broken record
in orbit coughing up mistakes and broken plans
i know i don't want to end up my life in their hands

we won't have to wake up and go to work
and i don't want to wake up and go to work
we won't have to wake up and go to work
and i don't want to wake up

at times my daydreams haunt my nightmares
highlight my worst fears and biggest scares
in orbit coughing up mistakes and broken plans
i know i don't want to end up my life in their hands

we won't have to wake up and go to work
and i don't want to wake up and go to work
and we won't have to wake up and go to work
and i don't want to wake up

i'm thinking i'm dead, am i dead? my life's a broken record
i'm thinking i'm dead, am i dead? my life's a broken record
i'm thinking i'm dead, am i dead? whoa oh oh oh
i'm thinking i'm dead, am i dead?
Track Name: Fanglish
face down we fade into the floor boards
take this skin sun collapsed your maybe eyelids
let's stay in we're stretched across the pavement
we are all in a coma
cars crashing capilaries
pay up to muddle up your memory of memories
we are all in a coma
cars crashing, collapsing
we are all in a coma
we stay ourselves always in the same place
we're safe sipping this wine
(we're safe)

sore eyes for you
sore eyes for you my lovely

we are all in a coma
cars crashing, collapsing
we are all in a coma
we forgive the ones who do us wrong
we forget the promise when we were young

we stay ourselves always in the same place
we're safe sipping this wine
we're safe
Track Name: Wedding Cakes
your wedding cakes are stacked in the kitchen
where your countertops stacked up with dishes
you don't have to lie about the way that we were
but you will always lie about everything
when you came through at 22
add another line to my magnetic mind
when you come through at 42
everything will disappear

you rest your head inside your heart
if your husband is dead who stole your heart

the building meet the grey skylines
the buildings eat the grey skylines
Track Name: The New 2 A.M.
go uptown upside down
do the things we used to
a fifth street blue screen
your blood cells, your arteries

kissing on carousels waiting for you
make love in letters i never sent you
now i'm sinking in the city
and the faces hit the bullseye in my chest
the code reflecting back an endless commotion of commuting

as the projector's droning on while the city's sleeping
and what's the side that you sleep on i don't even know you
and what's the side you're always on what's the side you're always....

go uptown upside down
do the things we used to
a fifth street blue screen
your blood sells your arteries

kissing on carousels waiting for you
make love in letters that i never sent you
now i'm sinking in the city
and the chemicals flip the synapse in my head
your sole confessions are listless we're all still awake

as the projector's droning on while the city's sleeping
and what's the side that you sleep on i don't even know you
and what's the side you're always on, what's the side you're always...
