Track Name: I'll Be Here Awake
There's apparently / someone on to me
It's so predictable / but still adorable
And there's an elegance / it makes a little sense
But if you stay with me / I'll make it poetry

Take your "self" and lay it under me
Don't think smart / I know you'd like to be
Make the same mistake / I'll be here awake
Train yourself to look a little appetizing
And crave a little pain when no one's watching
Make the same mistake / I'll be here awake

And there's a kind of hate / that tastes like birthday cake
All the worst in me / makes it sweet
Then there's the fantasy / about you and me
It's really nothing new / the other's had it too

Take your "self" and lay it under me
Don't think smart / I know you'd like to be
Make the same mistake / I'll be here awake
Train yourself to look a little appetizing
And crave a little pain when no one's watching
Make the same mistake / I'll be here all night
Track Name: Permanent
We only see what we believe / but the rest is audible
I can't believe what's happening
Is it possible that you tell me what to say?
If I say it, will you stay?

Because I've only just begun to feel the way that
you're supposed to feel
When everything is happily in place
I didn't mean to cause you any permanent pain
Will you consider me?

I feel forever young / I must be getting old
You'd think I'd be among / the ones with self control
I will somehow change if you tell me that you'll stay

Because I've only just begun to feel the way that
you're supposed to feel
When everything is happily in place
I didn't mean to cause you any permanent pain
Will you consider me?
Will you turn the other cheek?
Will you just this once please sympathize with me?
I didn't mean to cause you any permanent pain
Will you consider me?
Will you turn the other cheek?
Will you just this once please sympathize with me?
Track Name: Call Me
I'm in my clothes and I'm all alone
I just woke up but no one knows
I'll stay in bed / I'll go in late
I'll take the chance or make other plans
I'll pay the rent and ditch the phone
I won't be home

I'm still the same / I will not change
I'll never be more than you see
But if you need something / please call me

The mail is in and the lights are out
I'm in the dark but I see your doubt
The stove is on 'cause the heater's not
There's water in here but the plants are gone
I'll pay the rest but fuck the phone
I won't be home

I'm still the same / I will not change
I'll never be more than you see
But if you need something / please call me
Track Name: Here To Stay
I've been watching the fans rotate / I've been
watching the leaflets turn
I've been watching the plants even though they're fake
And I've been thinking about the things I'll never learn

I've been watching the stones below / I've been
watching the moves they make
I've been watching the faces that they'll never know
And I've been thinking about what could be at stake

So who in the hell got up and re-rung the bell?
And tell me who am I fighting for?
Or give me a hand because I really can't stand anymore
And I'm bored
But I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay / I'm here to
stay / I'm here to stay

I've been watching the insects work / I've been
watching the lion's sleep
I've been watching the redemption of Captain Kirk
And I've been thinking about how they can't make me
weep (not for free)

So who in the hell got up and re-rung the bell?
And tell me who am I fighting for?
Or give me a hand because I really can't stand anymore
And I'm bored
But I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay / I'm here to
stay / I'm here to stay
I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay
/ I'm here to stay I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay
/ I'm here to stay / I'm here to stay
Track Name: Sleep Is On The Way
Face the grin when I'm here sober / taste the fist
when I get pissed
Made a wish and now it's over / took the blame but who
to you turn to when

The feeling is not so intense?
It only hurts now and then
The owner says I can stay / sleep is on the way

So if you would, be gentle / say your name just one
more time
Take me home this will be simple / once again but who
do you turn to when

The feeling is not so intense?
It only hurts now and then
The owner says I can stay / sleep is on the way
Sleep is on the way / sleep is on the way

Once again but who do you turn to when
The feeling is not so intense?
It only hurts now and then
The owner says I can stay / sleep is on the way
Sleep is on the way / sleep is on the way
Track Name: She Looks Like You
We used to dance all night and sleep all day
Wake up and make love till sunlight Sunday
It's been about one year since you left me
I'd say that my weekends since have not been quite the
same
But I'll be OK

Today I found someone who was just as lonely
Someone who makes me feel like you once did
Today I found someone who's gonna save me from ever
missin you again
And I'm going to save her too 'cause she looks like
you

We had so much in common, didn't we?
We used to talk about all kinds of things
I remember everything you said to me
You made some promises that she's gonna keep
So I'll be OK

Today I found someone who was just as lonely
Someone who makes me feel like you once did
Today I found someone who's gonna save me from ever
missin you again
And I'm going to save her too 'cause she looks like
you

Today I found someone who was just as lonely
Someone who makes me feel like you once did
Today I found someone who's gonna save me
Someone who makes me feel like you
Today I found someone who's gonna save me from ever
missin you again
And she looks a lot like you
Track Name: P.S.A.
An intention not unkind follows me up to my room and
it locks the door behind
Pensively, it takes a while to release my inner child;
or should I say, it's half a child
It seems so mild / unless it's just as it was once described

My proboscis or my nose, as the figure of speech goes
will erode when I am gone
And the Saints will understand when they find my
magazines underneath my Rosary
Beside my teeth / unless it's just as it was once described

In time / you'll certainly go blind
You'll make a baby in Heaven fatherless / each time
you touch yourself

In time / you'll certainly go blind
You'll make a baby in Heaven fatherless / each time
you touch yourself
Track Name: I"ll Pretend
I begin / as you come in
It seems as though there's something wrong again
In the room and on the bed / somehow it tasted sweeter in my head

I can't explain myself tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time with them
Don't cry / I'll pretend

You're the best / I'm just depressed
And I'll improvise when covering up the rest
Or you say when / and I'll leave then
We'll never make this same mistake again

I can't explain myself tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time with them
And you won't know my thoughts tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time with them
Don't cry / I'll pretend that I'm listening
I'll pretend / when we're dancing
I'll pretend / that I miss you I'll pretend / when I see you
and hold you and kiss
you and take you and tell you

I can't explain myself tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time
with them
And you won't know my thoughts tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time with them

I can't explain myself tonight
But if you see my type around, don't waste your time with them
Don't cry / I'll pretend
Track Name: Sevilla
Dropped a princely stare right in front of me / I see
Inched his way to you with an accent and those shoes

Then you did that thing where you bite your lip and
reach for your elbow and rub it
It's been so long since you've done that

With me / at least he's interesting
Is he really fond of me?
There's no indication that she's pondering me

Launched a soft attack with support from Segovia / I
thought he'd bore ya
He spoke in Portuguese / I thought you'd laugh at him
with me

But then you did that thing where you bite your lip
and reach for your elbow and rub it
It's been so long since you've done that

With me / at least he's interesting
Is he really fond of me?
There's no indication that he's pondering me
We'll see
We'll see
She'll be OK without me while fucking him in southern Spain

But when she slips and calls out my name, he'll no
longer be fond of me
And she'll see
And he'll see
Is he really just like me?
Track Name: At Least You've Been Told
The bets are in / no one will win
The conversation sucks again
The tights are loose and somewhat bright but the
fetching noose will have to

Wait for me 'cause nothing's happening
Can't relate 'cause something's still missing
Is it cold or am I just getting old?
I'll be on my own but at least you've been told

The fact is this / you scratch an itch
And if it bleeds / you might get rich
The problem is / if you resist
It still exists until you

Wait for me 'cause nothing's happening
Can't relate 'cause something's still missing
Is it cold or am I just getting old?
I'll be on my own but at least you've been told

Wait for me 'cause nothing's happening
Can't relate 'cause something's still missing
Is it cold or am I just getting old?
I'll be on my own but at least you've been told
