Track Name: Weird Science
We spend all our time in chairs
Hoping for something new
And the problems are always there
But you help me work them through
With weird science, me & you

The drive there's half an hour
To share my afternoon
But I love to feel your power
So I hope I'll see you soon
You and your weird science, me & you

It weighs me down, on me it weighs
But you say to take it day by day

I've known you for a year
And I think our work is through
But I wanna stay right here
In this chair across from you
Teach me weird science, me & you, me & you

It weighs me down, on me it weighs
But you say to take it day by day
Away, I wanna run away
But you say I'm better off this way

We spend all our time in chairs
Hoping for something new
And the problems are always there
But you help me work them through
With weird science, me & you
Track Name: Confused
Conversation started days ago
Who knows, who knows
When we'll get a moment of our own?
Where'd you go? Where'd you go?

'Cause I wanna be your friend
But I think that it's the end
When you leave me hanging, words are dangling
I can't comprehend
Why you've even gone this long
When you're seeming so withdrawn
What am I to you? Can I break through?
How can I move on?

So confused
And used
As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place
'Cause boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time?

Bubble-thought ellipses take a toll
Come and go, come and go
What could be as easy as hello?
Not so, not so

And I'm trying to be kind
But I'm waiting on a sign
That this is original, not digital
Or a figment of my mind
Now you're showing me your hand
And I think I understand
That I'm opportune this afternoon
I fit around your plans

So confused
And used
As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place
'Cause boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life, your life?

So confused
And used
I don't wanna be defined as a note squeezed in the lines
When boredom
Is your bedlam
Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time?
Track Name: Madison
I shouldn't like you
I shouldn't look at you
The way I do
When you come around

But I, I can't help it
I can't help that I smile
When I see you
Smiling around

And I'm not sorry
I won't feel bad about
Noticing
All the little things

And maybe you won't hear this
Maybe you will never know
How I feel about you
And that's all right with me

I remember the time when
You let me
put on your glasses
And I remember they fit terribly

But you thought that I looked good
And you looked cute in mine
And then we laughed
We knew that without them we were blind

You could go for days
Up and down aisles full of
Shelves filled with books and
You'd be all right

And I could watch you
With your head down
And I won't say anything
I don't want to disturb you

See I only get short glances
Or one side of your face
I have to look at you
Through everyone else's faces

But I always find you
I can always pick you out because
You'll be standing there
With another guy's lips on your mouth
Madison, I notice everything about you
Sometimes you wear your hair up
Sometimes you wear it down
And I have pictures of you
That you don't know I have
And when I look at them
I get sad because
You've got a boyfriend
And he's my friend too
And when I see his face
I know that I can't be with you
Madison, it's not fair
You know that I'd do anything
So that you would be mine
Track Name: Jack & Jill
Always want what I can't have
But I continue to climb that hill
And I promise that I'll find my way back
If you'll be my Jill

It's me you haunt with your smile your laugh
Whatever is in you, I'll find it, I will
And I promise that I'll be your Jack
If you'll be my Jill

You wore my hat, and with your hand on my back
You said, "I'm going home."
So I'll pretend that I'll see you again
Your picture, my company when I am alone

My setting sun, what have you done?
Your glance, it gave me a thrill
If you only knew I'm mad over you
You might be my Jill

You said goodnight with your smile bright
And gave me only your name
It's dumb, I know, to think of you so
But I hold on to the fantasy that you feel the same

Memory will be the death of me
But I can't seem to get my fill
A panic attack; I want to be your Jack
Would you be my Jill?
Track Name: Leave
Look at his face
See the scars
Of who he was
And who you are

The past is not
In the past
'Cause broken hearts
And memories last a while

To calm him down
You conversate
But you remind
Him of hate

And all attempts
To make amends
Make him pray
For the end

So leave him alone, what did he do to you?
Leave him alone, all the time and every day
Leave him alone, wouldn't he wish for death?
Leave him

Look at her face
Bittersweet
All she hides
Underneath

What once was love
Has flown away
Replaced by doubts
Every day and night

To calm her down
You hide your head
Spend your days
In your bed

With every hour
You waste her time
But fail to see
All your crimes

So leave her alone, what did she do to you?
Leave her alone, all the time and every day
Leave her alone, no wonder she wished for death
Leave her
Look at your face
Are you surprised
Of what you see
In your eyes?

A man who hurts
A man who blames
A man who fights
A man who aims to harm

Now look at her
Look at me
Fuck yourself
We're all we need

Shut your mouth
Turn your head
We're better off
If you were dead

So leave us alone, what did we do to you?
Leave us alone, all the time and every day
Leave us alone, what I wouldn't give for your death
Leave us alone
Track Name: English 101
Day one: you opened up your book and let me begin
No fun, it's harder than it looks to read what's within
Day one: you teach me my own tongue that I thought I knew
I'm undone: it's English 101 when I try explaining you

I’m caught by the look in your eye
Turn back again and I lost my place
And, oh, I promise I'll try
Learning the lesson but I study your face
And I wouldn't waste your time
Teach me to read tonight

Finger follows just below the words that you say
I linger whenever I don't know the meaning of your ways
Day one: you opened up my eyes to show me something new
So fun, your English 101, and I love learning 'bout you

I’m caught by the look in your eye
Turn back again and I lost my place
And, oh, I promise I'll try
Learning the lesson but I study your face
And I wouldn't waste your time
Teach me to read tonight

As I thumb through your pages
Your body assuages my worrying mind
When I've got no words for saying
What I have been praying for

I'm caught by the look in your eye
Turn back again and I lost my place
And, oh, I promise I'll try
Learning the lesson but I study your face
And I wouldn't waste your time
Teach me to read tonight
Learning the lesson but I study your face
And I wouldn't waste your time
Teach me to read tonight
Track Name: The Backseat
Riding in the backseat
I see her eyes in the mirror
And while tapping her thumbs on the backbeat
The road and my mind are getting clearer
I wish that I could steer her
Would that be such a crime?
Our destination is getting nearer
So I don't have much time
To go on and on and on

Would you take me home tonight?
Would you take me home tonight?
You don't have to be scared
If the road isn't there

I exit from the backseat
And watch her waving hand
As she's driving down the backstreet
My heart's at her command
I wish she'd understand
That she's the best I've found
And I know she loves her man
But I'm not playing around
So come on, come on, come on

Would you take me home tonight?
Would you take me home tonight?
You don't have to be scared
If the road isn't there

Remembering the backseat
And her mouth so open wide
When I joined in song to act sweet
I forgot the pain I hide
Now it's only myself I'm beside
Not you since you drove away
But if you'd take me for one more ride
I know you'd want to stay
We'd go on and on and on

Would you take me home tonight?
Would you take me home tonight?
You don't have to be scared
If the road isn't there
You don't have to be scared
If the road isn't there
You don't have to be scared
I will always be there
Track Name: King Of The World
I was a baby sitting on top of the world
I was just a baby, small
And I thought if I yelled loud enough I could be the king
I could rule it all

But times got hard and my voice wasn't loud enough
And times got hard and my words weren't strong enough
'Cause a baby can't lift up the world
But I try, I try, I try
But these dreams won't let me sleep at night

I was the only man at the end of the world
I was the only one
And I was not afraid, so I took off all my clothes
Naked in front of no one

But what's the use in taking off your clothes if there's no one to love?
What's the use in having everything if it's not enough?
And I still could not save the world
But I try, I try, I try
But these dreams won't let me sleep at night

Times got hard and my voice wasn't loud enough
And times got hard and my words weren't strong enough
And I'm still a baby inside
And I cry, I cry, I cry
But these dreams won't let me sleep at night
Track Name: Why Won't You Talk?
Why won't you talk to me
Face on computer screen?
You're staring right back at me
But you never say a word

If I'm speaking honestly
Think you're making fun of me
Though you watch silently
Your voice is the loudest that I've heard

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me
Face that I can't unsee?
I'm waiting impatiently
For a voice with a reply

Give back my self-esteem
Let me believe in me
You've taken my sanity
Without saying your goodbye

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?

Why won't you talk to me
Face on computer screen?
You're making it hard for me
To see anyone but you

Will you let go of me?
Or is this eternity?
How could you start with me
With no plans to see this through?

How did I end up like this?
Why are you the one I miss?

Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me?
Why won't you talk to me anymore?
Why won't you talk?
Why won't you talk?
Why won't you talk?
Track Name: Worship You
All of your skin
The clothes that you're in
Do not quite approach what I see in you

The waters at night
The morning's first light
Do not hold a candle to what I see in you, you, you

When you were made
A gift the world gave
To every pair of eyes that would look on you

And under your wings
You shelter everything
That's beautiful, and no one compares to you, you, you

So hold me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Hold me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you

Goddess of dreams
So unfair it seems
That you should hold me once and then walk away

What's real and what's true
All this inside you
Please return and bless me for all my days, my days, my days

So need me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Need me, want me
I'll worship you, worship you
Track Name: Obsessed
I'm obsessed
What the fuck is wrong with me?
I'm a mess
And it doesn't even matter who she'd be
'Cause I'm out of my mind thinking about her
All the time living without her
Who am I to think that I could change her life?

I'm obsessed
Who the fuck have I become?
At best
She's an image I created of someone
And I'm losing it all pretending I know her
Hitting a wall and I can't let go
A waterfall, I'm drowning in her life

She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing ever happened to me
She's the best thing, the best thing, the best thing

Oh, I've lost control of my life
My heart and soul, they did me wrong
They did me wrong, they did me wrong

I'm obsessed
Is this the fuck what I deserve?
Unless
She's avoiding me to rattle all my nerves
And unsettle my heart and stop my hands
It isn't smart to mess with a man
Who's been apart from love as long as I

I'm obsessed
And how the fuck can I go on?
I confess
I don't care if everything I want is wrong
'Cause I want her touch feeling my body
In her clutch with her legs around me
Not too much to ask for her and I

I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing ever happened to her
I'm the best thing, the best thing, the best thing

Oh, I've lost control of my life
My heart and soul, they did me wrong
They did me wrong, they did me wrong

When I'm alone her spirit comforts me
At times I feel her hands on me
Remember her voice that doesn't call me now
I have to conjure it up myself
Remember the time, the only time we met
I haven't forgotten anything
When I'm alone, embarrassed, hide my face
I have only myself to blame
When I'm alone, her spirit taunting me
I have only myself to blame
When I'm alone, ashamed to show my face
I have only myself to blame
