Track Name: Roobies
There’s a girl, her eyes shine like rubies
From the back of her head
And when she dies, will she let me keep them?
If not I’ll be upset, because

A) I don’t want to be here
B) I don’t want to see her
C) I don’t know how to read her
D) I just can’t believe her

Believing her
Believe in her
Be leaving her
I’ll be leaving her

A) I don’t want to be here
B) I don’t want to see her
C) I don’t know how to read her
D) I just can’t believe her
Track Name: On My Mind
You’re on my mind, my mind, all the time
All the time, All the time
And I don’t mind, don’t mind all the time
You’re on my mind, on my mind

But it’s the last thing that I’ll do for you
It’s the last thing that I’ll do for you

You’re on my mind, my mind, all the time
All the time, All the time
And I don’t mind, don’t mind all the time
You’re on my mind, on my mind

But it’s the last thing that I’ll do for you
It’s the last thing that I’ll do for you
It’s the last thing that I’ll do for you
It’s the last thing that I’ll do for you
For you, For you, For you
Track Name: Be With You
My health is a mile away
It’s not on my mind today
I started smoking again
Since you went away
What would you say
If I start to slip away?
It doesn’t matter much since
You don’t really care anyway

I, I wanna be with you tonight
I, I wanna be with you

I am in love with the headphones on
With the headphones on,
A Modern Lovers song
What could I say?
You were bound to tear away
Hey, Jonathan!
What could I say?

I, I wanna be with you tonight
I, I wanna be with you

I, I wanna be with you tonight
I, I wanna be with you
Track Name: One More Day
One more day
I can take it one more day
I can fake it one more day
I can make it one more day

But then man, I don’t know
Where I am going
Going out of my mind
All the time

One more day
I can take it one more day
I can fake it one more day
I can make it one more day

But then man, I don’t know
Where I am going
Going out of my mind
All the time
Track Name: Downtown Girls
I hate the downtown girls
With their big sunglasses
Constant coffee cups and curls
They never show compassion
I hate the downtown boys
Who get to touch their asses
Here they come, here they come, here they come
Looking so in fashion

And I know, Yeah I know

It’s too much, it’s too much
It’s too much for me
It’s too much, it’s too much
It’s too much for me

I hate the downtown boys
With their skinny pants on
Going down to the show tonight
To get romanced on
I hate the downtown girls
Pretending men can’t find them
Here they come, here they come, here they come
Flocking right behind them

And I know, Yeah I know

It’s too much, it’s too much
It’s too much for me
It’s too much, it’s too much
It’s too much for me

And I know, Yeah I know
Track Name: Up All Night
What you don’t know, can hurt you
Just as badly as what you knew
Cut you deeper, all the way through
And leave you half of what you knew

I can’t fight the fight
Stay up all night
Dreaming of real life
I can’t fight the fight
Stay up all night
Dreaming of real life

What you don’t know, can’t leave behind
Seems so pointless, the less you find
Little worries feed on your mind
And leave you smothered like wintertime

I can’t fight the fight
Stay up all night
Dreaming of real life
I can’t fight the fight
Stay up all night
Dreaming of real life
Track Name: I Don't Wanna Know
I don’t want to know what you did today
I just want you to go
I don’t want to be your friend like that
Girl, hit the road
I’m watching my dad die
Right before my eyes
Yelling out:
“Oh no! Don’t go! It isn’t time!"

And if you don’t feel
Why are you here?
It’s like you don’t know
Or even care...I don’t wanna know

I don’t want to know what you did today
I just want you to go
I don’t want to be your friend like that
Girl, hit the road
I’m watching my dad die
Right before my eyes
Yelling out:
“Oh no! Don’t go! It isn’t time!"

And if you don’t feel
Why are you here?
It’s like you don’t know
Or even care...I don’t wanna know
Track Name: Wrap Me Up
Wrap me up and set me on fire
Turn my head into a funeral pyre
Take away the one desire
Wrap me up and set me on fire

It’s been like this for a while
Takes a month just to get me to smile
I lay the bad things out for miles
And it’s been like this for a while

Wrap me up and set me on fire
Turn my head into a funeral pyre
Take away the one desire
Wrap me up and set me on fire

It’s been like this for a while
Takes a month just to get me to smile
I lay the bad things out for miles
And it’s been like this for a while

You didn’t let me know
You never let me know
Never let me know
You didn’t let me know
You never let me know
Never let me know
Let me go
Track Name: Bleed Black
Take my heart down, down, down
And hold it down until it drowns
I don’t want to see that fucking thing around
As far as I’m concerned right now

Unless it bleeds black
Bleed black
Does it bleed black?
Bleed black, bleed black, bleed black

Take your art down, down, down
It doesn’t have a reason or make a sound
I don’t want to see your empty things around
As far as I’m concerned right now

Unless it bleeds black
Bleed black
Does it bleed black?
Bleed black, bleed black, bleed black
Track Name: Sister Sister
To save you would be a dream
To raise you white and clean
Not have you call so strung out
With all your time running out on you

Oh sister, sister
Oh sister, sister
Oh sister, sister
Sister

To save you would be a dream
To raise you white and clean
Not have you call so strung out
With all your time running out on you

Oh sister, sister
Oh sister, sister
Oh sister, sister
Sister
Track Name: Here I Am (You Don't Want It)
Here I am
Doing the things that I shouldn’t do
To get back at you
Get back at you

Yeah here I go
Packing boxes all up again
Moving the pictures around again
Forget about you

Here I am, I am
Don’t the thought just make you sick
Here I am, I am
I’m right here, you don’t want it
Here I am, I am
Don’t the thought just make you sick
Here I am, I am
I’m right here, you don’t want it

Here I am
Doing the things that I shouldn’t do
To get back at you
Get back at you

Yeah here I go
Packing boxes all up again
Moving the pictures around again
Forget about you

Here I am, I am
Don’t the thought just make you sick
Here I am, I am
I’m right here, you don’t want it
Here I am, I am
Don’t the thought just make you sick
Here I am, I am
I’m right here, you don’t want it
Track Name: Long Way Down
It’s a long way down
And I don’t know my way around
Everybody makes the same sounds
In this town, in this town

I don’t know
Where I should go
Everybody acts like they know
But I know, that they don’t

I don’t know if I can carry on
But until then pretend I’m gone

It’s a long way down
And I don’t know my way around
Everybody makes the same sounds
In this town, in this town

I don’t know
Where I should go
Everybody acts like they know
But I know, that they don’t

I don’t know if I can carry on
But until then pretend I’m gone
