Track Name: Special
I've seen the way you look with your star-crossed glimmer.
My skin shook, but that's really not important..
because when I'm alone, all I do is sit and sigh.

I'd open up my book, to pencil you in
Just that one look, and I'd be close to shivering
Because when I'm with you all I want to do is cry.

It's not about the way I'm feeling,
or the fact you're so deceiving,
that's not any of it.
It's not about the way you're leaving,
'cause nobody is that special.

The outlets on the walls all have forks stuck in them,
I said I'd call you...but I'm really not feeling it,
because when you're with me, all I want to do is die.
I've pulled out all my hair, and I'll keep on tugging
It's not fair...I know things could be easier,
but when you're with me, all I want to do is die.

Your smile wrings me on the inside,
just takes hold of all my insides,
I can't take it anymore.
I'm watching clocks tick, hearing voices,
no, nobody is this special.
I wouldn't wait for anyone, I won't wait for anyone
that's what I've always said.
I won't wait for anyone
Nobody is that special.

I've gone over the moon, and I won't come back now.
How you left me is the reason I take my bow,
because when I'm with you, all you want to do is.....
Track Name: Psychopath
"I know it's bad, I brought it all on. Oh, what was I thinking?"
is what you say, as we walk out the door.
I'm already bored, and my patience is shrinking.

To be as cruel as you is not easy, I know, but it's wrong.
You know what awaits you
when your day of judgement is done.

I give up, I can't find hope.
Where did it go?
We're stuck in the shadow of our lives.

You call me in, I do as you say. Oh, what am I thinking,
it's so annoying:
Me listening to you.
And I always do.
And I never want to.

To be such an unknown and completely alone is my choice.
I could talk back to you
but the things that you do leave me speechless.

I give up, I can't find hope.
Where did it go
You're stuck in the shadow of your life.
The sun goes down, it's all I have
I wait, we stumble, it goes

on and on, and on and on, and on and on

To be such an unknown and completely alone is my life.
I could talk back to you
but you don't have a clue who I really am.

And I don't know either,
I try to discover what makes me such a psychopath,
but I gave up, and I won't look back because....

I can't find hope.
Where did it go?
We're stuck in the shadow of our lives.
The sun goes down, it's all I have
I wait and stumble and go.
I can't find hope.
Where did it go?
We're stuck in the shadow of our lives.
The sun rises, and it burns my skin.
I wait, we crumble and go

on and on, and on and on, and on and on.
Track Name: Ira Glass Seems Nice
She's a scaredy-cat,
she says it like she means it, 'til she means it.
Then it changes, when she gets scared.
He's an open book,
you can read it on his face just how he wants her.
When she gets scared, only he can calm her.

She's seen all shades of green
and picked the brightest one.
He's had all shades of red,
he'll take any of them.

She lies awake at night,
'cause the fuzz thats in her head has been exploding.
While she's shaking, he's snoring.
But when he hears those cries
he can wrap his arms around her,
'cause he feels her.
When she's shaking,
only he can calm her.

She's seen all shades of green
and picked the brightest one.
He's had all shades of red,
he'll take any of them.

She's a scaredy-cat, but she's not so scared
with her walls torn down.
Track Name: Apologize
I can't stop standing in your way, I guess,
'cause you spit at me.
Come on and leave me alone...could you do that?
I'm sick of standing by while you act like such a brat.
I can't go anywhere without your ghost
creeping around.
Come on and take a step back...could you do that?
I'll make sure to read that fine print to avoid your trap.

You've gotten everything you've wanted,
what more can I do?
You'll ruin everything you've got
if I leave it up to you.

I found a spot you have to claw and climb to reach,
so you can stay away...could you do that?
I'll build a life until you're long gone,
and then I'll move on.
I know what kind of man you are,
what kind of people hate you.
If you could just look around....could you do that?
You'd see how many eyes avoid yours, and stare at the ground.

You've gotten everything you've wanted,
what more can I do?
You'll ruin everything you've got
if I leave it up to you.
You'll destroy everyone around,
so little do they know.
You need to get down on your knees and APOLOGIZE
'cause we blame the lies on YOU.
Track Name: How Can I?
It's too late
everything is lousy
it's great.
I'm sick of myself
and of you.
I'll find some way to drag you down with me.

How can I get you to follow me down?
How can I?

It's too bad,
this gun in-between us,
and you say it took a while to figure me out.
If that's true,
then why've we been
standing here for months now?

How can I get you to follow me down?
How can I?

It's too late
everything is lousy
it's just great.
I'm so sick of myself, and of you.
I'll find some way to drag you down with me.

I turn around,
you're at my throat again.
Open your eyes,
and let the fog swallow them.

"Dear me, where do we begin?"
you ask me.
How can I?

How can I get you to follow me down?
Shake you and break you...I won't make a sound.
