I can't stop thinking about Girls and Gods I believed in But no one can say that we didn't end up better for it Perfect from surface level but beneath crust I lose interest One day in love with your best friend and the next Throwing dishes Find a love whose touch is silk and make her Your little something sweet to replace hurt Suddenly she's sandpaper You don't know why you're not the master of your nerves But believe me when I say everyday I miss you When life gets congested our hearts are tissues I love the chase, but not literally I'm headed for space until I'm officially over being sorry for myself And you are too With new rationale, can't you put up with this? It can't be any worse than loneliness Suddenly I feel ancient and brainless Will love ever feel spacious? Everyday you wander through my mind It robs me of what I proudly once had Stability, now my position's fetal It's funny how time polarizes people Even having given us such sickeningly little of itself

Little sister, I'd such little wisdom To share before you ran away Even moments you were sour contend with My sweetest memories retained Not born in supernovas to behave like this Maybe she knew and that's why she is where she is Every city in the world's a candidate Dream in the clouds, searching for you Wake up alone and airsick Little sister, never mind a victor And never mind a Golden Age Where are we? The only certain answer: Between umbilical and grave

The worst part is I don't know how I'm gonna stand Unless I'm showing you off To passing cars when they see that I've got your hand If in a few month's time You've gone and found yourself a plan And it don't involve me Then I might not pack my bags and leave the foreign lands If you see me rip my price tag off Then it's because I'm sold If your words get stolen by someone Then it's because they're gold The worst part is never really getting to That Sacred Focus 'cause I feel out of place With every new wall I walk through

I know it's been a weird one friends But we're gonna get out of our stuffy houses soon So much to address Forget the science like we always do And soak up record highs We cut the sleeves off our clothes And find the beach where we left it Naked or in lab coats We test the water's depth We'll pay for this for years Honeymooning to an island we can't Point to on a map We'll make the best of it Build a park atop the landfill Sell our wedding bands for scrap We cut the sleeves off our clothes And find the beach where we left it With or without ozone We sport our sun-soaked skin

Some people hatchet tree trunks Some people wipe out brutes None of these things describe what we do Some people talk in circles Some people colonize None of these things fit into our lives But god, my god, my god, we do try To be people But where's my sense of Youthful Optimism I'm supposed to have? And where's my sense of Civic Duty in the high-five-covered quest? The bumper stickers let me know which country has god most impressed And Little Brother Syndrome has me searching for a better nest Some people hatchet tree trunks Some people find their roots None of these things describe what we do Some people really suffer Some people really care We've been told many times we should not stare But where's my sense of Youthful Optimism I'm supposed to have? And where's my sense of Civic Duty in the high-five-covered quest? The bumper stickers let me know which Candidate should be Elect And Little Brother Syndrome has me hoping that you are impressed

You are a really funny person to talk to about people that have broken hearts And I know just what you're trying to get into and I'm confident that I want no part And maybe I'll come to view this situation with an overwhelming sense of regret But I like these kids and I like where I'm at and what do you want me to say beyond that? On that? There are times that I feel more at home than I thought could I thought could I thought could ever one's life here be But I wish it were the 80s I wish we could be happy I wish I hadn't seen you on his lap that evening What I want, the only thing in life, is to be able to follow my own advice Dance with who you want Even in the night I can't pretend that I ain't gonna send them right back to the bowl Call it a punchline You bought up all the land under my wandering mind But I wish it were the 90s I wish that you were breathing And why does everybody that I believe in Eliminate their map before their time And why can't you just dance to anything that feels right? But I wish it were 2000 I wish the war were underway I wish that we could take back what we gave And I wish that I could mean exactly what I say I lie right through my pearly whites like tooth decay I wish it were the future I wish that we were older and wiser Settled down in a mortgaged home I'd hold her like a grudge I'd freeze the wedding cake I'd look at her as if I didn't know the divorce rate

Car Alarm Shut the fuck up boy, 'cause you ain't been harmed Since the days of growing pains And if this is a phase It sure ain't lunar boy, 'cause you've been this way Since the days of cartridge games You were a common cold Out of my system quicker than the piss I hold Or prank calls from our parents' phones And I think you'd molt If you could possibly be more uncomfortable In the skin that hugs your bones Minuteman Just how entitled are you to the promised land In the crap shoot for privilege? Supposed surrogate What wisdom can you generously grace us with to help us win the Great Contest? And now our past time is Self-portraits for approval from acquaintances Tell me, has it made you whole? Because I think you'd molt If you could possibly be more uncomfortable In the skin that hugs your bones

Human Tetris Bodies jesus, can I come home and keep you late for work? I'd like to make my room a sauna with body heat Vitamin deficiency's got nothing on your words Buckling my knees There must be a hundred good reasons for you to not answer any of my letters But you still do Do they not hold water like the concrete-colored clouds concealing blue? You're the darkroom stranger A bath of chemicals uncovered such a lovely picture My sockets hold Let's leave before anyone wakes up and sleep in vacant rooms below It's just such a pity, whose been casting my dreams? You never get a role that's decent You barely speak Awake at such stupid hours to take my calls before I take cold showers
