darling you oughtta kill me i'm all out of ideas i'm watching the paint dry hiding upstairs but i'm in love with this world and the way that the words sound tumbling out between the teeth in your mouth darling you are a joke and we've been laughing for years about pretending to get it and I'm scared that i don't... and life is too short to lose for so long true love is like an error message something's gone wrong the lights start flashing blue and orange blinking years start passing i didn't want to think about it look into the sun it shone so bright could have had you in my arms by the end of the night darling you oughtta kill me i'm all out of ideas i'm watching the paint dry hiding upstairs but i'm in love with the world and the way that words sound tumbling out between the teeth in your mouth

retromantic, that’s what you call me you’re pathetic, why did you call me? oh you’re drunk, that’s what i thought so don't hang up and calm me down if you can call me dumb if you want to i guess melatonin makes my head feel numb but I feel better in the morning superstitions ring in my left ear something kept me hanging around here you got out, moved back to your hometown i checked out knock three times, come in through the front door shake my faith, if that’s what it’s there for place my hands on your chest so i know it’s you calm me down if you can and call me dumb if you want to, i guess i am... melatonin makes my head numb but I feel better in the morning sun

i was holding my breath until the enemy left i was trying to survive a homicide under the miracle mile with the impossible smile your fake face is a fact that came to saw me in half i will close my eyes until the scary part is done i will cover my ears i don't want to hear that sound i was holding my breath a ghastly creature with a cigarette i was hedging my bets swinging swords like a shallow threat i will close my eyes until the scary part is done i will cover my ears i don't want to hear that sound

some noise 02:10
i was a mechanical girl you were nuts and bolts and getting older by the minute you said i don't want to live in this world every little bit as much as it don't want me in it til you found a voice and made a choice so go make noise like the other boys (oh if not now, when? oh and if not then then what's the point been?) you made a choice you lost your voice go make some noise with the other boys (oh if not now, when? oh and if not then then what's the point been?) i was the mechanical girl you were nuts and bolts and getting older by the minute you said i don't want to live in this world every little bit as much as it don't want me in it you made a choice your lost your voice make some plans like the others can't go make noise with the other boys (oh if not now, when? oh and if not then then what's the point been?)
