Attention


I don't know and I can't say this feeling just won't go away
You say that we're the perfect pair but you don't act it anywhere
Attention is the thing you crave, no matter what you do or say
Attention is just what you want, no matter whose jokes you're the brunt of

I don't know and I can't see the ways you say we're good for me
Personas made by alcohol they leave you seeming rather small
Attention is the thing you crave, no matter what you do or say
Attention is just what you want, no matter whose jokes you're the brunt of

Single Cell Antennae


Can I talk to you tonight, there's no need to hear your voice
I'll just type it on a phone or a tablet of my choice
IM, texting, social page, the only ways that I engage
Log on to read my every move, it makes me feel close to you

Incomplete without my phone, electronically alone
Afraid I'll have to improvise, socially lobotomized
I've heard of times when people walked they looked at each other and talked
But what I would prefer to do is walk with them and text with you

People Too


Why the older I get, the less time I have for you
When you've been there for me, my whole life through
The sharper my tongue becomes, the more that you need
You only get my time, when what I need it for is through
They say that nothing is forever, and for the most part that's true,
But the worst part about the saying, is that it goes...for people too

Why the older you get, the less my emotions show
Could it be you make me realize one day I must let go
You always seemed so ageless when I was young and still naive
My life becomes more a memory each time one of you leaves
They say that nothing is forever, and for the most part that's true
But the worst part about the saying, is that it goes...for people too

We Learn


The house is built and then it burns,
and all the while our insides turn
We learn to love then learn to lie
We learn to leave but don't ask why
We learn to love then learn to lie
So just sit back enjoy the ride

Although we try as time goes by
The less we see eye to eye
We learn to grow then learn to hide
The love we've let grow up inside
We learn to grow then learn to hide
Until we find the love has died

 

Nameless

 

Crawl


The more you talk the more I see, things aren't right, it's not me
You say it's love, I think why, to hear you talk, the way you cry
I'm tired of taking all the blame, just because we're not the same
If I'm so wrong why do you stay, why don't you just go away

 

One Day

 

Spitting into the Wind


I know you say you'll always care
I know I'll always want you there
I know that time can rearrange
What I want to always stay the same
Please stay...
You feel like someone else's lover
when I hold you in my arms
You feel like someone else's lover
when you woo me with your charms
You feel like someone else's lover
and I can't do a thing
The more I try, the more I feel
I'm spitting...into the wind

I know the way the world can go
I know that we can never know
I just can't let you slip away
Even though you're not mine anyway
Please stay...
You feel like someone else's lover
even though you say you're mine
You feel like someone else's lover
I can sense it all the time
You feel like someone else's lover
and I can't do a thing
The more I try, the more I feel
I'm spitting...into the wind

Ghost


I'll never forget that moment
Although the sun was out, and the trees were motionless in the thick summer air
I suddenly felt cold inside
As the first of six strands that tether me to this life, drifted away
Only to be felt again in my dreams

Advice


Why can't we just run away, from all of our friends today
They're only trying to be nice, but I'm so fed up with their advice
What to wear, where to go
What to do, who to know
What to wear, where to go
Why can't they leave us alone

Let's you and I just run away, somewhere far for just one day
No front doors no telephones, no way we can't be alone
What to wear, where to go
What to do, who to know
What to wear, where to go
Why can't they leave us alone

Cocktail Party, Happy Hour
Bachelor Party, Bridal Shower
Black Tie Dinner, Business Luncheon
New Year's Party, Social Function
Cocktail Party, Happy Hour
What wonderful ways to spend these hours

Why is it so hard to see, the way they act's not right for me
There's nothing wrong with what they do, but that doesn't mean I should do it too
What to wear, where to go
What to do, who to know
What to wear, where to go
Why can't they leave us alone
