Track Name: Shelter Under A Strobe Light
i've been waiting to tell you
that the sound is drifting away
and that scene that was played on the big screen
with that kiss that was freeze framed in the ending

well, it still comes around, around, around again
comes around, around, around again oh oh oh
Track Name: Flowers On Graves
won't you stay, stay, stay just a little longer?
i need to save all that you say

and no you won't change my mind by making faces
but in the way you moved
i had a feeling

the flowers on, the flowers on, the flowers on
all the graves are gone

there were times when i couldn't say why
i didn't know it then
there were times when i wanted to say more than i said

so you begged me to take some notice
i asked you, "who's gonna care?"
up the stairs of the churches
the shadows fell on the walls

the flowers on, the flowers on, the flowers on
all the graves are gone
Track Name: A Fever
lead your life half alone
in a halfway home
with a fever, a fever, a fever
now

and everything you thought you knew
was left behind

when you die was a lie
when you die was a lie

and you think that we don't know
i saw your ghost when I lived alone
and you said, "I wish I would have met you as a child"
wasted years, safe tonight

and everything you thought you knew
was left behind

when you die was a lie
when you die was a lie
Track Name: Popular Girls
feels like we're running out of time
prescribed to our current views
so tell me now, tell me now, tell me
is heaven really a place you'd want to stay?
when it's overused, understood, and nothing lasts
do you want to stay here?
could you really stay here?

apathy
soft hands
Track Name: Tokyo Bay
bleeding on the ground
the passing of news too grisly
and the fashion is under my coat
it's in my eyes, in my eyes

we are the drunken lies, surprise! oh
losing interest in your cries of love, and pain

these feelings of longing are always lost with time
but I have a feeling that weekend will always be on my mind
until my minds gone

you lead a delicate life, disguised oh
but when the taxis flash their lights
it's time to go
Track Name: Never Left
never left my mind
but mostly, i keep thinking
of that stupid night
you wanted to go out dancing
you painted the lightbulbs red

can writing in obscurity be a memory
of the jokes that never get old or funny
it's a snake pit and i'm brain dead
without you

now it's all out of line
that kiss and all those memories
from that stupid night
the disco ball was flashing empty love that was in your eyes
take it slow, i know
you just have to let it go

now you're writing for the world to see
but are you happy?
and your jokes never get old or funny
it's a snake pit and i'm brain dead
with you
Track Name: Teenage Nightmare
you look beautiful
isn't it wonderful?
Track Name: Sun + Moon
colored pictures on my wall
are prints and copies from a shopping mall
i had it right all along there's nothing in these spaces
bend your credit card back and forth til it splits

there's only you
the sun + moon
been talking that to death now
to death now

under the dinner table writing promises on the floor
that i would never take anything serious
well can i take it back again
Track Name: Too Much Sun and Not Enough Gloom at the Beach
"sick of all my friends" you said
rather die than be here again
too much sun, not enough gloom at the beach
Track Name: Forgive Forget
we must be, always be here
in dance halls, neon and drear
you say

we must be, always be here
in dance halls, neon and drear
with all the fear, with all the fear, with all the fear
of seeing you

you were cool when i first met you
now i think i kinda hate you

dead ringing from the telephone, telephone
this is calling you

you were here when i first saw you
then i think i had to leave
Track Name: We Become Ocean
we become ocean when we die
out in the waves where sea meets sky
and you can talk about nothing
in silence

now it happens all the time
once you came into our life
now these movies about time travel
have got me thinking just how far we've come

we don't mind
taking blame
all of these memories
soon will fade

now it happens once a while
you move things with your mind
Track Name: What Souls
sleep under your bed
and find the film
what souls
what souls
what souls

it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
it's over now
