Track Name: Steal Yr Idols
What's that? I'm gonna punch you in the tooth
Don't tell me this song sounds like Sonic Youth
I know already that it does
I was there when I wrote it and that's the way it was

I was listening to a record or two
By the SY, by the Sonic Youth
A little Sister, a little Goo
Daydream Nation of course, but all the new stuff too

It's ok to steal yr idols
Everyday we steal our Idols
In some sort of way steal yr idols
And it's ok to steal yr idols

What's that? Everything you do sounds new
Well I am made of rubber and you're made of glue
I know the bands you listen to
And all the people at your shows do too

You've been listening to
A record or two
By the same bands you did in '92
Nothing special, nothing new
Daydream Nation is us and that's the gospel truth

It's ok to steal yr idols
Everyday we steal our Idols
In some sort of way steal yr idols
And it's ok to steal yr idols
Track Name: To Tell You
I've got something to tell you
And it's something that I don't think you will like
Well I know in the past I have hurt you
And it's come back to me tonight

And now I feel like dying
But I'm too afraid
So I sit in my room trying
To go away, to go away

I've got something to tell you
And it's something that I don't think you will like
Well I know in the past I have hurt you
And it's come back to me tonight

And now I feel like dying
But I'm too afraid
So I sit in my room trying
To go away, to go away
Track Name: Smokers Were Lovers
Do you remember a time
When you could look out a window
Across an open field
And no cars would go by?

Did you remember to die
When you got up this morning?
You took yourself aside
and said today will be different

Well it's true I only think I do
And I'm ill, I only say I will
And it's true - that I try

Do you remember a time
When cigarettes were five dollars?
And in a crowded room
Smokers were lovers

And it's true I only think I do
And I'm ill, I only say I will
And it's true - that I try
Track Name: Body Won't Do
I say I don't feel well
And that sells
And I stay
Home in bed all day

And I'll cry
Until I die
If I don't
Get this from my head

I can't eat and I can't sleep
Every day feels like a week
It may seem like a lot of harm to you
But I don't care what my body won't do

Every day without you
I think about you
And how you look
And how you smell

It's not weird
It's sincere
I miss you
And I always will

I can't eat and I can't sleep
Every day feels like a week
It may seem like a lot of harm to you
But I don't care what my body won't do

And you don't feel the same about me
Feel the same about me!
Track Name: Baby, I'll Die
I still feel the way I felt
Like I could melt
Like I would melt

From the heat that you emit
Baby please don't quit
Baby please don't quit

And if you have none to give
I don't know how I will live
And if you have none for I
Baby, I'll die

I still feel the way I felt
How your body smelt, the way your body felt
And the things you've done for me
So selflessly, so beautifully

And if you have none to give
I don't know how I will live
And if you have none for I
Baby, I'll die
Baby, I'll die

Die (baby I'll die)
Die (baby I'll die)
Die (baby I'll die)
Die (baby I'll die)
Track Name: To Live On
We lost ourselves not long ago
And we've come so far there's no turning back around
And we know ourselves and this isn't us, no
We can't help ourselves, we want something to live on
And on

That's alright, no it's not insane
To have shopping malls and airplanes
If we survive for another day
Is anyone sorry it turned out this way?

We cast out faith not long ago
And we've come to see what's actually around
And we know ourselves and this isn't us, no
We can't help ourselves we want something to live on
And on

That's alright, no it's not insane
To have shopping malls and airplanes
If we survive for another day
Is anyone sorry it turned out this way?
