Track Name: The Red Door
connect the dots, connect the freckles on your arm
correct the hearts we broke, the smoke we toke
will bring them back to normal, oh
i had enough, so pack it up and everybody move along
the night is ours, the moon the stars, the broken parts
the battle scars

there's change in the weather
there's chains on the red door.

connect the dots, connect the freckles on your arm
correct the words we spoke, i told you so it's
never everlasting, no
so call the shots and blow me off
it's over now, we'll carry on
the sounds, the songs we wrote a long time ago
are in the walls

there's change in the weather.
there's chains on the red door.

***the name won't save you this time
the game's been played and you lied
now this arcade's your pride
we coulda saved it if you tried***

collected debt, collected everything you had
corrupted company and suddenly i'm
feeling really bad about it
but honestly i do believe you take the blame
for everything.
the guilt, the shame, the broken dreams left
in the place are memories.

there's change in the weather
there's chains on the red door

***

we coulda saved it if you tried.
Track Name: Come & Get Me
i'm too young to be stuffed in your pocket
locked up like all your loose change
saved up for a rainy day, spent when you say it's okay
waiting to be given away

i'm too old to be tied up to your heart
like a dog on a leash out in the yard
following you and begging for food
obeying and staying when
you tell me too

you love me when i'm fast asleep
you love me when i'm on my knees
you love me when i just don't speak

i'm too dumb to learn all of your lessons
like a big brainless beast with a text book
ripping the pages and stuffing his face
dining on science cuz science tastes great

i'm too smart to be sat down and lied to
like a whiny child told not to cry
"if i were you, i'd stop making that face,
it'll get stuck that way. you'll run out of tears
and you'll need 'em some day"

you love me when i'm fast asleep
you love me when i'm on my knees
you love me when i just don't speak
you love me when you're all alone
you love me when your schedule's full
you love me less each time you call
"come and get me"

cowardly cleveland city resident
call the police again just like your dad
talented tipsy little teenage me
can't believe i didn't see it coming when you smiled at me

you love me when i'm fast asleep
you love me when i'm on my knees
you love me when i just don't speak
you love me when you're all alone
you love me when your schedule's full
you love me less each time you call
"come and get me"
Track Name: Another Girl's House
i'm sorry you're kind of a mess right now.
it's better that it ended yes, i wanted out.
maybe try sleeping at another girl's house.
forget all about me, babe, there's more to think about.

you kinda screwed it up when you called the cops
to come over and watch me while i packed up my stuff
maybe try sleeping at another girl's house
let that lady love you baby, let her lay you down.

and free your mind of me
and be a little manly, please
go see what else life has to give
you'll feel much better once you did

i'm sorry you're kind of a mess right now
at least there's less to carry when you move out of town
maybe try sleeping at another girl's house
live a little bit baby, yeah, flip that chick around

let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby, let her lay you down.

i'm sorry you're kind of a mess right now
it's better that it ended yes, i wanted out
maybe try sleeping at another girls house
forget all about me babe, there's more to think about

let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby
let that lady love you baby, let her lay you down.
Track Name: Coffee Table
fire safe cigarettes, caramel covered in chocolate
coffee, alcohol, sticks of incense and a bracelet
cheap generic trail mix, half a pack of matches
dust and dirt and ashes
napkins and a candle

i choose to keep my eyes open and i choose to keep this coffee table full.

tell me something useless, something more amusing
than a plane crash in the mountains, kidnapped kids
and houses blowing up.
tell me something different! something i haven't heard yet
edit the fucking news strip, mister, some of us haven't slept yet

i choose to keep my eyes open and i choose to keep this television on
i choose to keep my eyes open so i won't be sleeping alone.

rock 'n' roll magazines, papers, bowl, a bag of weed
pencils, notebooks, my bare feet.
poems i wrote and a mix cd.

i choose to keep my eyes open and i choose to keep this coffee table full
i choose to keep my eyes open and i choose to keep this television on
i choose to keep my eyes open so i won't be sleeping alone.
Track Name: Yeah, You
you've done well for yourself
your sunroof's broken, but, oh well
you picked a pretty one off the shelf
the one you kiss, kiss, kiss and never tell

your dad... he's playing gig's again.
he seemed all right, i talked to him
and i saw you in his eyes. i did.
i said we'd severed ties and then i left.

***it's not mine now
it's my mind that you stole
and it's a crime now
why won't you let it go?
i'm not mine, no
i'm not even yours.***

you've done well for yourself
your tire's flat but what the hell?
your dad's just doing what he loves
he's a lot like you but you're still young

***

here we go
empty heart
new blue car
win the war
"i'm not alone,
told you so"
pretty little poison apple

***
Track Name: Come Over
i'm a mess at best behind a cigarette
surrounded by a lack of interest
my success i confess it isn't accurate
i'm half of the pieces you let

*** so won't you come over?
come over! come over! come back!***

i'm a wreck. a mess behind a cigarette
surrounded by my bedroom walls
so upset regretful lone and mad again
i'm half of the person i was

***

oh no.
look what you've done to me
oh, love
look what you've done
awkward empty and broke again
i'm sure i'll never be whole.

i'm a mess at best behind a cigarette
astounded by my emptiness
i regret what i said so i will wait for it
i'll sit and watch the world end.

***
Track Name: Shiny Little Silver Set
everything's colder in california
they might not have souls there
they must not have class
they act like they do but
everything's plastic
you kiss their assets
and they stab your back.
oh, you tell them the truth
and they'll tear your heart out
they'll pay for the ticket
and they'll send you back
you show 'em what you do
and they'll make a memo
yeah, they'll take all the credit cuz they've got the cash.

***crash!
shiny little silver set
television smash hit!***

everything's harder to see on the west coast
the beast seems so nice but she'll eat you alive
she'll pick your bones clean before you even stop breathing and you'll die while you wait for a chance to survive.

***
crash!
imposter garbage can.
television smash it!***

everything's bound to betrayal in la
they don't keep promises but contracts are holy
angels are agents and money is god
liability's sacred and the system is flawed.

Track Name: Gravity Handed Me Back
the earth circled the sun once
since we let go of the handle that was
holding the both of us up
as we were falling
falling out of love
i felt my heart break
and the air escape from my lungs

***you pulled the parachute too soon
gravity grabbed me and i passed you by
i pulled the parachute too late
gravity handed me back to the sidewalk.

gravity handed me back, gravity handed me back
took the sum of my mass after empty was added
yeah, gravity handed me back***

the earth circled the sun once
since i crashed into concrete
violently from up above
as i was falling
falling out of love
i felt the impact before all the damage was done

***

the earth circled the sun once

***
