Track Name: He's Just Not That Into You
Wish I could get out of town and crash a rental car
I wish you were a telescope and I was a falling star
I wish we had more problems so we could hug it out
Put your heart in, take your brain out
that's what it's all about

And then you turn yourself around, you turn yourself around

Talk to me
Look at me
Touch me
Look at me

I wish you sent me frantic texts asking "where are you?"
I wish you had a sandcastle that I could step into
I wish I could just hold your hand without twisting your arm
(Hold My Hand)
...without twisting your arm


But then you turn yourself around, you turn yourself around

Talk to me
Look at me
Touch me
Look at me
Track Name: Victoria
Victoria, you aint got no secrets
Victoria, you're giving it all away
Victoria, you know they all got your number
Victoria, you're gonna want it all back someday

Well you were undressed, wondering which face to wear
so the snares hiss when you walk into the room
your dress was unkind
yet you think you're so refined
but you're a day too soon and a dollar too rich from being a white trash bitch

Victoria, you aint got no secrets
Victoria, you're giving it all away
Victoria, you know they all got your number
Victoria, you're gonna want it all back someday

Wipe off your face, the abandoned amusement park
a vacant disgrace, with a tramp stamp on your back
Sex sells love, from the waist down, of course
but if I could buy your love, I'd have buyers remorse

Victoria, you aint got no secrets
Victoria, you're giving it all away
Victoria, you know they all got your number
Victoria, you're gonna want it all back someday
Track Name: Awake
Stepping stone, I find I've lost the time
but you, you know me so well
I know you well enough

Love is all, my only gift to you, those few I am beholden to
You keep me hanging on through

so many wanderings through my need to understand
Break down the door to heaven, need to understand
Opaque, drawn in and shuttered, need to understand
I need you to help me through

All alone, dare not the dreamers dream
don't dare to dream at all
Awake and lying there
with open eyes
Despise the dark, the pitch, from switches on the wall
Keep the light on through

so many wanderings through my need to understand
Break down the door to heaven, need to understand
Opaque, drawn in and shuttered, need to understand
I need you to help me through

so many wanderings through my need to understand
Break down the door to heaven, need to understand
Opaque, drawn in and shuttered, need to understand
I need you to help me through
Track Name: N.Y.M.
You've got a nice warm heart
in a cold, cold world
you finish what you start
and you do what you're told
And you wear sharp, clean suits
and you take care of friends
You know just who you are
and you've got confidence

Cause you're a Nice Young Man
in a Mean Old World
and you do all you can
to make me your girl

You've got a real good soul
and pretty eyes to match
you're on the honor roll
and you're a real good catch

Cause you're a Nice Young Man
in a Mean Old World
and you do all you can
to make me your girl

(you're a nice one)

It's late in the city and I'm so close to you
It's late in the city and I'm so close to you
It's late in the city

Cause you're a Nice Young Man
in a Mean Old World
and you do what you can
to make me your girl
Track Name: Half
Sitting and waiting for my life to begin, but that's a lie
I sit and watch it pass me by, with my potential just waving "hi"
And all the money that I earn
and all the lessons that I learn
they help me know just where I stand
half as important as any man

Sitting and waiting for my dreams, to come true, and so it seems that I could dream my life away
and be another sad cliche
And all the people that I know
And all the places that I go
Help me learn just where I stand
Half as important as any man

And I'm not just paranoid

I'm falling down, don't fall away
into death, I'm falling prey
Help me UP, don't help me DOWN
Don't play keep away with my crown
And all those times you turned your back,
and when you show me what I lack
you let me know just where I stand
Half as important as any man
Track Name: Come With Me
This little party's out of hand, I think they're taking over
Hey, little girl take my hand, we'll duck and run for cover

Come with me
Come with me

Light beams from your fingertips and stars fall from your eyes
I'll photograph you just like this forever in my mind

Come with me
Come with me

And we run through the night
and we run through the city
we run til the day breaks and you've never looked so pretty, my little girl

Faster, faster little girl, don't get left behind
Stash away your beauty, only want to see your mind

Come with me
Come with me

Cause this little world don't mean a thing if it don't make you smile
So rescue your endangered brain and walk with me a while

Come with me
Come with me

And we run through the night
and we run through the city
we run til the day breaks and you've never looked so pretty, my little girl
Track Name: Conspiracy Theory
Safe, sound and warm
when they cover the world, they cover the world, they cover the world
It's all pure and white
We'll take over the world, take over the world, take over the world

Oooooooh

Message to you
with no return address
They'll find you wherever you are
The phone's for you
they didn't say who's calling
They cover the world

Oooooooh

"Life without soul is not so bad
nothing's as bad as it was
before they came and took it all away"
They cover the world
Track Name: Night Courtship
Cold telephone
no message at the tone
Silent nights
with thrift-store mansionites

Chilled dom perignon
I'll drink it on my own
Neon lights
and thrift-store mansionites

Tonight
beneath the glowing lights
I know the time is right
to dance, no romance
I will be all right alone
without my telephone
your message at the tone
I will be all right

Bone chilling cold
No hand for me to hold
Sleepless nights
with thrift-store mansionites
Track Name: Spotless Mind
Wide awake
Walls to ceiling then the window
Digital hands are moving too slow
It's impossible to not focus on anything

Do you remember where you are?
Do you remember where you've been?
Do you remember, do you remember, do you remember?
Do you remember who we are?
Do you remember who we've been?
Do you remember, do you remember anything?

Barren land
there's no hope for a survivor
no hope for one stray memory
you're lost without a trace
and I can't see your face

Do you remember where you are?
Do you remember where you've been?
Do you remember, do you remember, do you remember?
Do you remember who we are?
Do you remember who we've been?
Do you remember, do you remember anything?

Wide awake...

It's impossible to not...

...to not remember everything

Do you remember who you are?
Do you remember who you've been?
Do you remember, do you remember, do you remember?
Do you remember who we are?
Do you remember who we've been?
Do you remember, do you remember anything?
