Track Name: late
i've been waiting for you
i've been waiting for your smile
i've been waiting in your room
in a sexy position
for you

oh, are you thinking what i'm thinking?
are you wanting to try out something new?
set fire to the walls
send out your siren's call
oh, if we've anywhere to be,
we're gonna be late

run across the bedroom floor
a giant's castle made of fire
we are sweating in another room
in an awkward position,
me and you

oh, are you thinking what i'm thinking?
are you sure we will not be too loud?
this feels so dangerous
this feels so strange for us
oh, if we've anywhere to be,
we're gonna be late

take my hand and running faster
we can't be here for the monster show
we'll outlive them all by miles
pierce the hills, build a castle of our own

oh, are you thinking what i'm thinking?
are you up for a night out in the woods?
and when the wolves arrive,
we'll take them for a drive
oh, if we've anywhere to be,
we're gonna be late.
Track Name: the world like that
i'll build a rocket for our exit
to match the robot from our entrance
everyone in the meeting will be
so excited for you and me
"how did they get to be so awesome?
how did they get to see the world like that?"

all of everything, veins of wondrous meaning underneath

we can't help but see
there's a universe just waiting to be seen
so much spinning, so much gravity

everyone in the world will be so
excited for you and me so yeah
we are just very lucky,
yeah, we get to see the world like that
Track Name: doing it wrong
if you don't want to, you can just take it back
if you don't need this, it's okay to let it go

standing on a platform in a station in a city
with my mind made up by somebody else
it doesn't really matter what i think
if i don't think it in the first place
for fear of doing it wrong
i think we're doing it wrong

searching for myself, i found you peering through a hole in the dark
i'm pretty sure you'd see a little better with a light turned on

aching for a feeling, reaching out into the only place
you've ever even found, but then it's somebody else
it doesn't really matter what i think
if i don't think it in the first place
for fear of doing it wrong
i think we're doing it wrong

staring at the ceiling while the pages fall down
and the pieces of the new you crumble to the ground
when you really look inside, and when you go to deep to hide it,
there should really be no missing pieces
no one will fit any of those spaces but you

standing on a platform in a station in a city
with my mind made up by somebody else
it doesn't really matter what i think
if i don't think it in the first place
for fear of doing it wrong
i think we're doing it wrong
Track Name: blue
if i'd have known that it was gonna be the last time,
i'd have noticed every detail, i'd have memorized
the way the world looked then, try to hold it in my mind
i don't think about you every day,
but baby, when i do
oh, baby, when i do,
it all becomes blue

i have said and done things that will haunt me for the rest of my life
it isn't easy to forgive the person i am for the person i was,
to relive the moments, to drown in my choices
because you deserve better
you deserved so much better

if i'd have known that it was all about to capsize,
if i'd not taken it for granted, would i realize?
you can't see where you'll be, only where you've been
i don't think about you every day,
but baby, when i do
oh, baby, when i do,
it all becomes blue.
Track Name: smile
be what everybody needs,
what everybody thinks you are supposed to be -
cuz they know you better than you do.
their solutions all will work
because they know how bad you hurt,
and they can see inside your head,
can tell what your problems really are.

give up, phone a friend,
tell your friend you were wrong.
how could you see it more clearly than they can?
you are not really mentally ill.
you're just not trying hard enough.
depression's just another word for lazy motherfucker,
so just change your mind and smile.

if you cared just a little more,
the world would open every door for you.
never mind the relentless pain inside.
everyone's exactly the same,
why should you be any different?
and your bleak hallucinations are just caused
by not getting out enough.
your unspeakable rage is probably just something you ate.

so give up,
ask around,
and admit to yourself
that you just choose to feel like nothing will ever get better again,
that you prefer to feel totally worthless,
wasting every day.
so why don't you just stop complaining
and smile.
Track Name: never meant to be
standing in the back,
folded in the shadows,
we pray our eyes don't meet,
pray that we are blind now.

we were never meant to be

the pages of our lives
scatter like ashes.
they flutter out of sight,
and only then we try to catch them.

we were never meant to be,
and it doesn't matter now.
it doesn't even matter now.
