Track Name: Lions for Us All
I use iron for my wings
It’s the same thing, it’s the same thing
I bought lions for us all
So they could lie down at our front doors
I spilled poison in the wine
I think it tastes fine, I think it tastes fine

Now there’s something in the road
I’m going too fast and it’s too slow
Armed with welcomes and goodbyes
One lives, one dies

I spit fire in the wind
I’m just a bit singed, just a bit singed
I tie a rope around my neck
So I can leave home as my own pet
I build bridges in this town
So I can stand back and watch them burn down


Now there’s something in the road
I’m going too fast and it’s too slow
Armed with welcomes and goodbyes
One lives, one dies


Soft and a little silent,
it sure beats a violent streak, ohhh
I'll be your pretty little tyrant,
Oh and when summer starts to dry up,
Hold on
It's gonna stain your skin,
lord I hope you’re joking

Now there’s something in the road
I’m going too fast and it’s too slow
Armed with welcomes and goodbyes
One lives, one dies
Track Name: Feel Like a Friend
Say the things that turn me on,
don’t breathe ‘till you turn blue,
tell all your friends that you were wrong,
while they follow you,

So....why so hard?
No...Oh, my god,

And now I feel like a friend, eel like a friend
feel like a bad friend,
can’t we calm down and shake it off?
And so I feel like a friend, feel like a friend,
feel like a real bad friend,
can’t we calm down and shake it off?

calm the bears you lead along,
with honey in their soup,
some wine, a kiss, a simple song,
trade silence for a tune,

So....why so hard?
No...Oh, my god,

And now I feel like a friend, feel like a friend
feel like a bad friend,
can’t we calm down and shake it off?
And so I feel like a friend, feel like a friend,
feel like a real bad friend,
can’t we calm down and shake it off?

can’t we calm down and shake it off?
can’t we calm down and shake it off?
can’t we calm down and shake it off?
You said you miss me, good, good,
You said you miss me, good, good,
You said you miss me, good, good,
You said you miss me, good, good,
You said you miss me, good, good,
You said you miss me, good, good,

And now I feel like a friend, feel like a friend,
feel like a real bad friend,
And now I feel like a friend, feel like a friend,
feel like a real bad friend,
Track Name: Used to Be Better
If only I’d been underground,
When I’m finally up, I’m better down,
And every time you stop, I start,
Just build until it falls apart,

I’m good,
But I used to be better,
Yeah, I’m good,
But I used to be better,

Hello boy, are you doing well?
Your mouth is full, but I can tell,
When it’s never black or white, just grey,
Are you pretty good, or just okay?

I’m good,
But I used to be better,
Yeah, I’m good,
But I used to be better,

I’ll down my submarine, (I’m good)
Just to feel something, (I’m good)
I could crown my head with bees, (I’m good)
Just to feel something,

I’m good,
But I used to be better,
Yeah, I’m good,
But I used to be better,
I’m good,
But I used to be better,
Track Name: Good Dog
I'm the girl in your parked car
I'm the first light of your cigarette
I'm a good dog
I'm a win before you place your bet
I'm everything that makes you feel good
I'm the first blip on your satellite
I'm a sweet song before a good night

Just put your hands where my eyes can see,
a small price to suffer your company,
and it's so long, and it's so long,
and it's so long, so long

I'm the call you hoped would come in
I'm an early February Spring
I'm a good thaw
I'm all the clever little things
I'm a win before you place your bet
I'm everything that makes you feel good
I'm the first blip on your satellite
I'm a sweet song before a good night

Just put your hands where my eyes can see,
a small price to suffer your company,
and it's so long, and it's so long,
and it's so long, so long

I'm the girl in your parked car
I'm the first light of your cigarette
I'm a good dog
I'm a win before you place your bet
I'm everything that makes you feel good
I'm the first blip on your satellite
I'm a sweet song before a good night
Track Name: Beautiful Things
Fall, fall for a season,
Walls, up for a reason,
Safer than it is to hide,
It’s colder than it looks outside,

Small, but small is an empire,
Love, and love is a liar,
Wait for something good to be,
Embrace missed opportunity,

All these, All these,
beautiful things, beautiful things,
beautiful things, beautiful things,

Time, time is an asshole,
and love, love’s still an asshole,
make a lover, lose a friend,
leave to come right back again,

All these, All these,
beautiful things, beautiful things,
beautiful things, beautiful things,
beautiful things, beautiful things,
beautiful things, beautiful things,

And if you, should gather rust,
well, I’d like you better,
And if I, would turn to dust,
well, it wouldn’t matter,
‘cause it’s only so long,
I’d leave you this song,
and all these, beautiful things
Track Name: Run, Rabbit, Run
He said he'd like to die alone,
and I know he's right,
but i know he won't

He thinks that I don't respect his clothes,
I tell him I do,
but I know I don't

He thinks I'm better on my own,
and maybe that hurts,
but maybe I know

He says he wants to take it slow,
but from where we've been,
there's nowhere to go

Run, rabbit, run, I swear
Know you'll be so lonely
Run, rabbit, run, I swear
Know you'll be so lonely

This rabbit's off to somewhere
Someday's think I'd like to be there
No I don't
No I don't

I've always done what he says
Stand up, sit down, fall to pieces
No I won't
No I won't

Run, rabbit, run, I swear
Know you'll be so lonely
Run, rabbit, run, I swear
Know you'll be so lonely
Track Name: Good Morning, Bad Dream
Good morning, bad dream,
Thanks for the company,
Good morning, bad dream,
This tired dawn brings,
Thanks for the misery,
This tired dawn brings,
 
Try to sleep but can’t shut down,
Try to sleep but can’t shut down,
Try to sleep but can’t shut down,
 
I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,
I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,
 
Been chasing bad things,
Gonna be the wreck of me,
Been chasing bad things,
 
Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,
Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,
Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,
I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,
I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,

Good morning, bad dream,
Thanks for the company,
Good morning, bad dream,

Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,
Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,
Try to speak but nothing’s comin’ out,

I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,
I ask you my monster,
Please will you leave,
Track Name: Wedding & Wake
You parked your car at the foot of my bed,
When all I said was ‘pick me up’,
My father met you and he made himself a friend,
When all I said was ‘pick me up’,
And all that I asked for, was just as little as you could give,
And all I ever asked for, was just as little as you could give,

Now I’ll be singing at your wedding,
I’ll be singing at your wake,
And for some reasons I’m forgetting,
Just why I ever stayed away,

You shared a room in the back of my head,
And all you did was clean it up,
I drew a map for you, of all the places I bled,
And all you did was clean it up,
And all that I asked for, was just as little as you could give,
And all I ever asked for, was just as little as you could give,

Now I’ll be singing at your wedding,
I’ll be singing at your wake,
And for some reasons I’m forgetting,
Just why I ever stayed away,

The things you never thought would happen,
My commander, my captain,
When it's too late to begin,
Just weak enough to let you in,

You parked your car at the foot of my bed,
When all I said was ‘pick me up’
Track Name: Plenty of Space
Hello, won't you come in, meet everyone,
This will just take a minute, we're pretty well done,
We've got internet and TV, fast cars, wireless and planes,
We're so glad you're here, just look what we've made,

Don't look around much, we've had no time to clean,
and now that we've met you, there's probably no need,
we can nearly live forever, vaccines and cures for days,
and now that we've met you, we've got plenty of space,

We'll follow you home,
We'll follow you home...
We won't ask for permission,
We refuse to break tradition,

Go ahead and start the engines, we’ll gather up our things,
Could we borrow some compartments, for all we’d like to bring,
It’s just some laser-guided, missile, smart-bomb, nuclear technology you see,
We’re really not excessive, we’ve simply packed things we’ll need,

We'll follow you home,
We'll follow you home...
We won't ask for permission,
We refuse to break tradition,
Track Name: Home
The world’s alive with spider veins,
but it’s still alive so I can’t complain about it,
I’ll do a swan dive into a glass of wine,
I’ll admit sometimes I can’t feel alive without it,
I can’t stay here, I can’t leave here,
Home, where have you gone?
We’ve all been raised in microwaves, ‘til we radiate,
Nothin’ we can do about it,
Grab the front row to a heart attack,
Watch somebody help while you just gather around it,
I can’t stay here, I can’t leave here,
Home, where have you gone?
My eyes burn by these florescent lights,
I can't turn them down and it's daylight outside,
what I, wouldn't give for just one drop on my tongue to
forget where I am and where I come from,
I can’t stay here, I can’t leave here,
I can’t stay here, I can’t leave here
