Mind Reader 02:07
Paint me in the background so you know you'll never be alone I would drive my car the whole night just to reach the foreground of your home It's far too late to be up right now We've got so much in common, follow me down You were never one to compromise Tell me are you satisfied? Yeah, bury yourself in everything you believe to be true I'm not as brave as I oughta, be but I've got you I know exactly what you're thinking You're scared you're gonna die in this city like me It's just too fucking easy We've only got so much time Don't you hate being on the losing side? Yeah bury yourself in everything you believe to be true I'm not as brave as I oughta be but I've got you Yeah go running right back to place where you're from, the place where you're from When all is said and done
Run Home 02:53
Try not to waste anything We are chemicals, headlights on a highway sign We trip over words and choke on goodbyes I'm rooting for the nightmare, Begging to be alone at night I hope our molecules collide Ignore the second hand It counts down our meaningless lives Can you try a little harder? I was not meant for this portrait Now I'm hanging from the frame So run home If I can't give you the best of me Did I miss my line? Can I phone a friend? Maybe this time, I'll get it right If it breaks my wrists, I would hold the world for you if it's too heavy I would lay here the whole damn day if you let me Would you let me? You're sick of the silence in your room If it was something I could do I would stop everything for you and be everything for you
This is a loathe letter to myself I wrote it on a torn out page From a book that doesn't go on the shelf The ink stains I'm tired, alone, and afraid You know I’m gonna push you away Despite how you treat me Maybe I'll find comfort where I stay I think I'm in loathe with you today When you reflect on your life you realize that it never meant anything Erase me from all of history Like the glass on the streets you're leaving Like every little thing you love about the city Tell me what you're thinking I'll break your heart with a pen in a moment If you go and let it break wide open You're waving to me from an island I will swim until I find it I've laid on the bathroom floor enough times that I don't really mind it Speak to me, speak to me slowly Suddenly I see the oxygen leave We are so young and lonely I wish I could erase the day the color drained from your face So unsatisfied, I became the person I am tonight
Here I go again Laying on the floor Fuck this conversation I just end up staring at the door With my hair long, like it's some kind of statement And your shoes off, you run home on the pavement We'd like to think that this is all a big coincidence Your home is growing old you'd leave it in an instant If we're all numbers, man, just put me down as too indifferent I'd like to show you just how little I care Would you believe me That nothing's meant to be? How does it feel Knowing everybody's empty? We'd like to think that this is all a big coincidence But I don't care No I don't care Here you go again Drinking all alone Is this the night you thought you wanted Are you ready to go? Wake up at home, eat your plastic, watch your television Pray you'll see your face and hope like hell there’s someone out there listening
Spin 03:29
Tell me are you satisfied? Can you accept your role? I'm watching re-runs where we all die Open wide, swallow me whole Spin like you're walking away Spin like records shining light on your face God damn ain't it funny how you never changed? Put your faith in what you cannot prove Lose yourself in what you can't undo I don't believe in anything but you're heaven sent No matter where I am I'm irrelevant I know it doesn't make sense Blink and you might miss it In the end will you smile and stare At the canvas that once lay bare? Did you brush over every tear? Did you paint yourself out of this nightmare? We're all here Nobody's going anywhere You can paint yourself out of this nightmare
