Track Name: Something Dumb
Leave me on my own
Just like I been told
You're just not for me to hold

Lately I'm so sane
Level on the plane
I'm hoping that you feel the same

We'd better not
I know you're hot
I'm not so bright
Turn out the light

Trouble has come
But you are the one
Let's do something dumb

I see you in school
I think you're pretty too
But pretty boys like me aren't cool

Yeah, I take pills to chill
And you seem really real
So I'll confide just how I feel
Track Name: Just One Word
The phone was ringing loud
Expect me to answer the call
It’s just responsibility
I didn’t worry at all

And that was special to me
So what is special to you
And are you really cool
Was it just something to do

Suddenly
There’s a weight
Right away
You could save the day
Am I fated to stay
I’m hearing just one word

The night was closing fast
Like there’s not much time left
Need you to answer me this
So pardon me if I press

Whisper it in my ear
Like you were giving a kiss
Loving we know, but
This kind of love has a twist

Our hearts are beating close
This must be what it’s like
Would you please change my life
Would you just hold me tight
Track Name: Back There in the City
Back there in the city tonight
Leaving a foreign light
I lose or I win, never again
Oh, I've been back
Yes, I've been back

I grew up stronger
Than the man who stands here now
Struck fast by sorrow
And time gone past

Fall with a stranger
One who takes your breath
And leaves you still

Back there in the city tonight
Leaving a foreign light
I lose or I win, never again
Oh, I've been back
Yes, I've been back

To where it's darker
It is so far I'm bound
Bound is my will
And memories so lost

Just take your time
You can run with me
On the longest mile
Track Name: Fashion, Clothing, Moving
Riddles turn into nothings
Spend my time reading, writing
You sighed three times, I’m counting
Give me a hand I’m bowing

Curtain’s falling, I’m still out though
Let me act in perfect shadow
Desperate reaching, you’re still preaching
Kiss me on the cheek in shadows

Threatened regime, uh-oh
Imbalanced fashion, uh-oh
Unsecured clothing, uh-oh
Irrhythmic moving, uh-oh

Curtain’s falling, I’m still out though
Let me act in perfect shadow
Desperate reaching, you’re still preaching
Kiss me on the cheek in shadows

Riddles turn
I need your hand to pass
I’m tested every time
I need your hand
This time might be my last
And I won’t try
Track Name: Feel It Now
If you're looking out at night
You're looking at my face
But there is nothing there
And you feel it now

There's something in your hand
And there's something in my hand
And it's gonna bite so deep
Do you feel it now?

There's a pushing in your chest
And push, push you feel it
It won't-a let you rest
Won't-a won't you still feel it
You feel it now

You're looking in the dark
You know you shouldn't stare
But you can't forget the past
Cause you still feel it now
Track Name: Jealous Villain
English accent
Your voice reminds me of my own
Makes me nervous
It’s stronger than I would have known
All the basics
All the basics
If I go slow
Will you let me know?
Trace my outline
Do it so you don’t forget
Wasteful pastime
Doing something you’ll regret
And I won’t be bitter
No, I won’t be bitter

Tell me something
Do you feel sexy when you dance?
Hold me closely
Tell me that I have a chance
All the basics
All the basics
If I go slow
Will you let me know?
Carbon dating
Drive me somewhere that you like
Mellow waiting
Till you leave me in the night
And I won’t be bitter
No, I won’t be bitter
