    Romantic Theory

    I didn’t like you anyways
    You always spoke so quiet
    I had to ask you to repeat yourself

    I'd like to explain to all of my friends
    To everyone involved
    How it all happened
    How things fell apart

    let's reconstruct the scene
    as best we can and try to figure out
    what crimes were committed

    I saw you again last night you were
    hiding in a poor man's body
    but I saw your soul slip out of his fingers

  2. Misheard Lyrics (Feat. Nora Knight)Lyrics

    Misheard Lyrics (Feat. Nora Knight)

    Everything you say is a bridge
    Everything you do is water under it
    These are not the original lyrics
    Such a worthless waste of time to write about

    every bit of you that I don't love
    is filled up with my hate
    I was a situation
    that you were glad went away

    Move move forward like a human being
    (sometimes you have to kill things to impress your friends)
    you probably looked like an idiot in that hat
    (used to feel bad about crushing ants)

    (why why why why why to die)
    I can't go back to not understanding what you mean to me
    I’m turning into the person that you were afraid I’d turn out to be

    there is something in me that can only give
    there is something in you that can only give out
    when you hear my songs do you get that feeling
    and if not, what the hell were you hearing?

    I am not crazy, I am right
    what do you mean? what are saying to me?
    I was just another bird you touched
    whose mother won't take him back

    I’m sorry I misheard your lyrics
    (tried to smile but it didn’t show up in the photograph)
    I was searching for a soul to sell my devils to
    (all I wanted was sleep and you took it away)

    [yes yes yes yes yes I dislike I hate]
    did you do something wrong was there something you did that I could blame
    I thought I was open I thought I was intimate and then you asked me my name

    By the time they send the lifeboats
    I won’t want to leave the island
    Calling out to distant shorelines
    Calling out for different basslines

    I can’t go back to not understanding what you mean to me
    I’m turning into the person that you were afraid that I’d turn out to be

    Ooh, it was nothing special
    ooh, it was nothing sacred
    just hands held
    and shoulders rubbed
    and voices touched
    in holy harmony

  3. Times To DieLyrics

    Times To Die

    All of my friends are getting married
    All of my friends are right with god
    All of my friends are making money
    But art gets what it wants and art gets what it deserves

    (I lost a fight with Trypho
    Blamed it on my alogia)

    We’ve all had better times to die

    Get a job! Job
    Lying in bed while all his friends chant youmustadonesomethingwrong
    But he just keeps singing this song:

    [Job’s song]

    Worming my way into your heart
    Worming my way onto the charts
    I want a deal
    Let’s make a deal
    Let’s cut a covenant

    And when they took him to the temple
    Oh then they fed him to the devils
    And when they took him to their temple
    Oh then they fed him to their devils
    And when they took him to the temple
    Oh when they took him to the devils
    And when they took him to the temple
    Oh then they listened to his demos

    most of the time I'm just getting older
    but I'll get to heaven standing on your shoulders
    so many people you know that could make you
    they say kid you're good but do you have what it takes to be
    invited into the divine council

  4. Overexposed (Enjoy)Lyrics

    Overexposed (Enjoy)

    You used to have a future, now you don’t even have a past
    You won’t have half an answer if anyone cares to ask
    You promised to speak to no one, you were lucky that I heard
    Because without a witness no oath can be assured

    Somewhere down the line you’ll look back and
    Say you did the best that you could and you’ll be wrong
    You’re always wrong

    I hope you enjoy it underneath the light
    I hope you can get some sleep tonight
    Because where you live the sun doesn’t set
    This is your bed. Hope you enjoy

    You held me in the sunlight, your interlocking hands
    Left a photograph on my shoulders, spots where I didn’t tan
    But my skin was an imperfect film and the negatives were burned
    Without the evidence there was no need for you to ever return

    And someone down the line will look back
    And wonder what you felt for me and he’ll be wrong
    You’re always wrong

    I hope you enjoy it underneath the light
    I hope you can get some sleep tonight
    Because where you live the sun doesn’t set
    This is your bed. Hope you enjoy

    I can’t turn this thing off
    It keeps following me
    Used to be so human now it’s just a machine
    I can’t turn this thing off
    It keeps following me
    When’d you say you were leaving?
    When’d you really leave?

    I hope you enjoy it underneath the light
    I hope you can get some sleep tonight
    Because where you live the sun doesn’t set
    If this is your bed, how do you do it?
    I was within my rights, I was behind the line
    You were dancing in your sleep
    I promised to hide it under the covers
    This is my bed, how do you do?
    Hope I enjoy my no one

  5. Los Borrachos (I Don’t Have Any Hope Left, But The Weather Is Nice)Lyrics

    Los Borrachos (I Don’t Have Any Hope Left, But The Weather Is Nice)

    Being sad’s so boring
    I’m taking a vacation
    I’m driving down to see my old friends tonight

    Let’s spend the week with rosy cheeks
    And crush the grapes beneath our feet
    And stop burrowing through old chocolate boxes
    Like a heartbroken Bacchus

    I miss the good old boys
    They could still find joy in life to talk about

    So leave that girl behind you
    Or whatever it is that’s got you
    We’ve still got time for one more drink tonight

    Think what the others would say
    If they saw you in the bathroom, kicking the stall door
    They’d say “get out of your head for a while
    Jump into mine, leave it on repeat and it says:

    If I’d been a parrot I’d have been a very good parrot
    and if I’d be a parent I’d be my own parents
    and if that’s not apparent than it will be soon

    I don’t have any hope left but the weather is nice

    If you’re trying to live you have to own what you do
    Jesus Christ, I wish I could talk like that
    But such is my place in life

  6. SoulsLyrics

    Souls

    That wasn’t any better at all
    That didn’t make me feel any better at all
    I thought it would, but it didn’t

    My consciousness is bigger
    It gives me no pleasure to say
    My consciousness is bigger than yours
    It gives me no pleasure

    And we descend the basement
    Poorly done murals, the faces
    If there wasn’t a house, we would build one with our bodies

    Hang on to my ego
    Everything is coming loose tonight
    I’m too nervous for boys now
    I’m too nervous for girls now

    every bottle you drink must be recycled and
    every plastic cup that can't be recycled in this town
    At the party kids come in and out
    Talking about T.S. Eliot

    It starts out fun
    Because the night is young
    But then the night gets old
    And it just gets cold
    And we go outside
    And we go back inside
    And we say what’s the plan
    And there is no plan so we go
    La la la la la la la la

    I just need to wake up burst into motion
    Raise my finger say aha, say moving is easy
    I just need to take off, burst into motion

    I just need to get up burst into motion
    Raise my finger say aha, say moving is easy
    I just need to get off

    It wasn’t fun
    wasn’t educational
    It lingered on
    I put my fingers on you were gone

    Let’s get away from these despicable people
    They can’t keep their mouths to themselves
    I know there’s lots of other guys with my name here
    But tell me I’m the only one that you will
    Does anybody use this bathroom in the daytime?
    Is this a house or the set of a film?
    Let’s get away from these awful people
    They can’t keep their minds to themselves

    I refuse to let go until you're impressed
    I refuse to let go until I'm depressed

    I see you reaching out to t-t-t-touch
    My skin shrinks, I think I’ll be shocked
    By that static
    It’s too dynamic

    Because I never wanted you to change
    I only wanted you to be different
    Like, not so distant

    Cause we are alone in our orgasms
    But your flesh seems so solid
    Why does it melt away
    In the morning dew?

    I’m sorry, I thought someone was there
    Like two mirrors gazing into each other’s eyes
    Like two microphones kissing

    But oh, that night, that music!
    The longer it goes, the more important I feel
    But oh, those lights, those colors!
    The less I can see, the more I can feel

    B----- said never to write about what’s in my pockets
    But that’s where my hands are, and that’s where they’ll stay

    Because you’re used to a softer touch
    She’s just used to a gentler touch
    She is used to a gentleman’s touch
    But hey man it’s cool when you do it

    We are alone in our dreams
    Do we have to sleep tonight?
    Murmur, murmur! Coward!
    Building towards a meaning that’ll never come

    Leave someone beautiful
    Find someone horrible
    Dig me

    I just want to have sex with you

    When I say stop, stop stop stop stop STOP!

    Bounce and stretch
    I stretch into a smile
    Not just my face, my body, my soul

    Because I view life as something that I
    Don’t think I’ll get away with
    And you think that we’ve already gotten away

    Yeah we all have dreams, I know
    I should have forgotten them in the morning
    (a dead dog painted on the sea)

    If none of us know the words then only the melody matters

    I wrote this verse drunk
    I thought it would solve everything
    I thought it would
    BUT IT DIDN’T

    When everyone was going homewards
    Did you cry because it was over?
    Or did you cry because you knew it would never end?

    As long as we don’t go to sleep yet
    I promise I can’t go to sleep yet
    cause the night’s not dead, no the night’s not dead
    I will not go alone to my single-size bed

    We could go anywhere but we will always be where we are

    I waited for you on the eastern shore
    Watching people trying to act sober on the other side of the sea
    Until I laughed and headed home
    I learned my lesson never to roam

  7. Maud GoneLyrics

    Maud Gone

    When did our heart
    Stop beating?
    Used up all the heat
    When did it start?
    Our meeting
    It’s been on repeat
    I know there's a full moon every night
    it’s just not always bright
    but it’s been so long since I saw the light
    maybe I haven’t been looking at the sky

    Maud
    Now you’re gone

    Sweetheart please love me too long
    My heart’s too strong
    Love me too long
    Sweetheart please let me hold on
    To these old songs
    I’ve loved too long

    When I’m in bed
    I’m dead
    No one to check my pulse
    And so instead
    My head
    Begs not to be so full
    and when I fall
    asleep
    which part of me writes the dream
    and which part falls
    asleep
    who's running the machine?

    I know theres a full moon every night
    When I dress black it snows white

    Maud
    Now you’re gone

  8. Sleeping With StrangersLyrics

    Sleeping With Strangers

    will anyone be surprised
    will anyone not say they're surprised
    where will it be? will I have found a home by then?
    or is it always in your hometown?

    will my hanging leave me indecent?
    will they have to cross my legs?
    no more throwing the bottle cap into the trash and throwing the bottle into the recycling
    let nature take its course

    how long will the casket hold?
    how long will the old home hold?
    how many hands will have touched me?
    how may eyes shut? only two

    will it be like in the movies?
    will they play music I like?
    or will everyone be hovering around the iPod trying to put on their playlist

    all that oxygen, no more
    all that senseless rubbing, no more
    only gravity
    and it's such a drag

    and when the night comes
    who will be lying by my side
    I never liked sleeping with strangers

    and when the night comes
    whose side will I be lying by
    I never liked sleeping with strangers

  9. Anchorite (Love You Very Much)Lyrics

    Anchorite (Love You Very Much)

    You never stopped smoking, but I forgive you
    My words and my heart were not enough to give you
    And my words always sounded wrong, it was easy not to listen
    Still it pained me to see when I left, you never noticed what was missing

    After all that’s unsaid and undone I know this can’t mean much
    But I hope that you find someone who loves you very much

    No, I’ve never slept next to someone who wanted to sleep next to me
    It was hard to debate, you couldn’t wait to lose your memory
    And it didn’t take long, you were strong in your resolve to lose your mind
    It was only a mistake that on the way you happened to lose mine

    Yes, I know in your eyes we were never really lovers as such
    So I hope that you find someone who loves you very much
    And I hope that you find someone you can love just as much

    Sometimes I wish I hadn’t taken all my notes on your rolling papers
    But when you burned them the scent was such a bittersweet vapor
    I watched the flames silence the words I was given in life
    But if your heart was in it I was glad to be your sacrifice

    And though I’ll miss or at least sometimes wish for your touch
    I hope that you find someone who loves you very much
