Track Name: Batteries
She's a machine
I swear she runs off batteries
A new teenage fiend
She never seems to stop
And she screams

(chorus)
Take me all the way
Take me all the way
Take me all the way home

Six sticky drinks
Can fix little minxes
And tear up the town
She's a dog
And she screams

(chorus)

Ribbons and violence
A new kind of silence
He's uninvited
There goes the only boy who you loved hey

(chorus)

(outro)
Track Name: No Way
You are such a fool
I've got my own skin
Why do you insist on coming in
I sense hesitation that I have to ignore
Cause your body's standing up
But your mind's on the floor
And there's no way of getting back
To what we had before

You speak but there's no sound
And when we meet you'll
Tell me how you fell onto your feet
We lost our connection
We couldn't explain how
I'm wrong but I'm not
And you tell me again that
There's no way of getting back
To what we had before

You're saying we should go
You leave the lights on
You think we won't be gone
For very long
I have to be honest
You're pulling my hair til
My limbs start to break
And I'm beyond repair but
There's no way of getting back
To what we had before
To what we had before
To what we had before
Track Name: Want You Want
Take it away with the look in your eye
We should go out, it's so dark inside
I'm either making a change or I'm making a mess
And we all know what he did that made you so depressed
And you say...

(chorus)
This is not what you want
This is not what you wanted
This is not what you want
This is not what you wanted

Now I've stood still, I am tough to miss
So shoot me down now instead of holding my wrist
She's never convinced by a mechanised beat
Too sad to kiss and too thin to eat
And you say...

(chorus)

(outro)
Track Name: Everyday
Broke the back of my limousine
With a bit of teenage angst
Got a call from a certain someone
And he just said 'no thanks'
I wanna know what you're doing
While I am asleep
I wanna know what you've been doing
Trying to earn your keep

(chorus)
And everyday I feel more stupid
And I just don't know why
Everyday I feel more stupid
It helps if I say in twice

Wish you'd play me on your station
And we could sing along
But maybe you don't have the patience
To tell me what is wrong

(chorus)

Made a call to my certain lover
And he just said 'no thanks'
Made a call to my mother
And she told me 'that's what happens when...'
Everyday I feel more stupid
And I just wanna have fun
And everyday I feel more stupid
And then I start to run
I start to
Everyday I feel more stupid
I start to run
I start to
Everyday I feel more stupid
I start to run

Everyday I feel more stupid
And you just think I'm funny
Everything I feel more stupid
And that's when I start running
Track Name: Crows
I woke up as a number
I woke up and people were calling me names
I spent the day as a good-for-nothing
Now everyday feels the same

(chorus)
All the cars are gone
All the cars are gone
And I'm in a daze
The crows are waiting outside the store til midnight

I'm not about to let go
But right now this is my only option
But fuck I need to let go
I'll pick apart the next guy who comes around
and tells me what I'm doing wrong

(chorus)

You shouldn't come around here
No you shouldn't come around here
This is where the winners come to lose
This is where the good kids come to die
(repeated)

I woke up as a number
Track Name: Werewolf
Well once I saw the werewolf
He was creeping on his toes
And everybody told me 'nonsense'
But not everybody knows
And I'm certain that I saw him
He was outside my window

(chorus)
So, with all these things considered
I might abandon hope
They're making their incisions
And I've got nowhere to go
When he is pushing daisies
Then I'll be pulling back
You might say I'm crazy
But I will say 'no!'

And time must be a fool
With a banjo in his hand
That's what walls would tell me
When I was watching bands
And I used to think it noble
To sit near the window
But now I see the werewolf
And now I don't think so

(chorus)

The werewolf's dead
And I will say no
The werewolf's dead
And I will say no (x3)
And I will say...
Track Name: Minimum Wage
Shit got stuck on rooftop tin
While I'm in my bed
I'm sick in my bed
Tools think twice
Then gunshot head
While I'm in my bed
I'm sick in my bed

Breakfast down the drain away
I run on empty
I'll empty my bed
Box bin reeks of rotten cheeks
While I'm in my bed
I'm sick in my bed

Heat, steam and wild motions
He looks at me and I'm focused
I'm reeling, I'm reeling
Don't let the cat out
He's been stealing pigeons' wings

Sunlight pains my eyes
And fades the linen
Something stuck between my teeth
And I, I'm sick in my bed
I'm sick in my bed

Breakfast down the drain away
I run on empty
I'll empty my head
Box bin reeks of rotten cheeks
While I'm in my bed
I'm sick in my bed

Paste, cream, clean
I hate his being
He looks at me
I hate the ceiling
I'm reeling, I'm reeling
Don't let the cat out
He's been stealing pigeons' wings
Track Name: Hopeless
Boys and girls and games
Oh to be again
I would have walked out
From those hellish flames

(chorus)
Don't think that I don't know you
I've been watching on transparent nights
And you made me so hopeless
Now I hope that you feel hopeless too
And we're caverns of our sorrows
And tomorrow we'll be scoring seats
To the action
To the old news
Now I hope that you feel hopeless

Two friendly foes (fuck them)
Made me like debris
A cockroach on my back
Those bitches set me free

(chorus)

I'll never go back (hopeless) (x4)
Track Name: Mars
These days, I think cynically
People made promises to me
They said by now we'd be in outer space
At least by now we'd be in outer space

(chorus)
Maybe we should move to Mars
Maybe we should move to Mars
The view is wide
I heard it's full of stars
Maybe we should move to Mars

I want a garden full of red brick stones
To line the border of a red brick home
They said by now, we'd be out of this town
If anything we're going underground

(chorus)

Take me out
Take me out there (x3)

(chorus)
Track Name: Law School
When I was staying in the city
You called my number frequently
From another part of the country
And I missed you

We'd talk about the friends we'd made
While I pressed buttons on the microwave
And then you told me how much more important
Your brain was than mine

(chorus)
You'll just get a little sad
You'll just get a little sad
That's what you said to me
You'll just get a little sad
You'll just get a little sad
Is that what you think of my degree
You'll just get a little sad
You'll just get a little sad
Guess you're so much smarter than me
You'll just get a little sad
You'll just get a little sad
I can tell that you have been
Making all the good decisions lately
Maybe I should follow your lead

I was startled you were serious
You said that grades were not important to us
Apparently, I'd never understand
Arts degrees are just for forming bands
And I couldn't care for
Receiving my high score
Because if it's particularly bad
I'll just get a little sad

(chorus)
