Track Name: Breakable
not so easy
drive away
exposition exposé

speeding faster
don't care
head is pounding

tick tock
tick tock
tick tock

you knew it well
you knew it well

i'll come for you
i'll find you
i'll follow you
i'll find you

something got into me
Track Name: Vague
There are no rules
There's no school for this
A kiss is not a kiss

When something does not exist
But it hurts like this
A kiss is not a kiss

Like a magic trick gone awry
But I did not die
You cut me in half
And I don't know why

Everyone including me
Thought that we were two
Too vague, so vague
When nothing is true

Cut me
Track Name: Bad Valentine
Leave me be when I am dreaming
I don't need you anymore
Why are you ringing the doorbell
I will not open the door

I don't care for you
Please don't ask me to
I am safe here inside

When I see it's you
On the avenue
Oh, I just wanna hide

Sorry for all the confusion
Baby, don't misunderstand
You make me so disillusioned
Just accept you're not my man

I don't care for you
Please don't ask me to
I am safe here inside

When I see it's you
On the avenue
Oh, I just wanna hide
away...
Track Name: Man Doesn't Know His Own
Fabricated canopy scratching out the sky
Won't let go of you

Unexamined energy infiltrates delight
Won't let go of you

Spill another whiskey glass, never tell a lie
Won't let go of you

Don't disturb your troubled head
The radio is dead

Won't let go you of you
No matter what you do
Don't give up on me
Dull boy, Johnny
Track Name: Pyewacket
Linger ring your bell
As i cast another spell
I will burn your book
Before your final look
Gaze, woah

Candle wax will drip
Upon my fingertip
Break the hourglass
Of scary fairtales, woah

Pyewacket
Together we can be like one
Pyewacket
Whenever we have come undone

Let the thunder break
Don't make a big mistake
Do the magic tricks like 1986
Haze, woah

Drop the one you call
The number on your wall
She has been alive
Since 1985, woah

Pyewacket
Together we can be like one
Pyewacket
Whenever we have come undone

Resistance is futile
My helpless, valentine
You'll remember nothing
It's only in my mind
Track Name: Katie K
Funny, funny feeling when the day began
7th of June, 3pm

Katie K
Got away
On a Tuesday afternoon
Hey, hey, hey
Katie K
Gonna be real happy soon

No idea, had no clue
Packed a bag it was something to do
She's a real tough cookie, iron clad
No, no, no, no toleration for being sad

Katie K
Got away
On a Tuesday afternoon
Hey, hey, hey
Katie K
Gonna be real happy soon

Crashed McKenzie's car in the driving rain
Driven crazy pretending to be sane
4 long years to get up the balls
Finally ran away to Niagara Falls
Track Name: I Have Nothing To Say
I have nothing to say
Because
I've said it all before
I have nothing to say
Because

I have nothing to say
I have nothing to say
I have nothing to say

The search for meaning is meaningless
Stress for nothing and lose it all anyway

Roses on the table
Chocolate in your mouth
You head north
It all goes south

I have nothing to say
Because
I've said it all before
I have nothing to say
Because

I have nothing to say
I have nothing to say
I have nothing to say

No denying, no regrets
Thanks for trying, we blew it anyway

Cards on the table
Candle's burning out
This is the ending
That's what it's all about

I have nothing to say
Because
I've said it all before
I have nothing to say
Because

I'm the sand running through your fingertips...
