Track Name: Swoon
Here we lie underneath such a pretty moon
Wondering how long it should take to swoon.
Should I feel what I feel?
How can that be wrong?
And I feel very strong, that all I feel is wrong.

And darlin' why can't I find a way of life that I can use.
I've known two or three, and the problem is that I can't choose.

Walking home in the dark under such big stars.
Angrily I wish I had drove the car.
I am a textbook case of a textbook case
of laziness and fear putting my hear in it's place.

And darlin' why can't I find a way of life that I can use.
I've known two or three, and the problem is that I can't choose.
Track Name: Call the Cops
Why don't you leave me alone?
I know my weaknesses and I'm subduing them at a glacial pace.
Why don't you let me be?
When you're like this all I can do is obsess about what I do wrong.

Why don't you call the cops on me?
Why don't you call the cops on me?

Why don't you have a heart?
You've got slack to spare, why don't you lend me some?
I'm in a bind.

Why don't you show me a smile?
Things are not that bad, it's scientifically demonstrable.

Why don't you call the cops on me?
Why don't you call the cops on me?

Why don't you call the cops on me?
Why don't you call the cops on me?
Track Name: Friendly Friend
We'd both like to be the friendliest friends.
Soap box derby champions
Unrequited lends

Walk briskly around
See there that's our breath
Mittens will protect us from frostbitten to death

I live outside with you despite myself
You'll visit me inside, won't you?

Try trying to hang around
Try eating this plum
You'll never desert the me
That's word is his mum.
Track Name: Multnomah Now!
Let's take a few hours and let's drive to the coast.
I know that it's cold, that's why God invented coats.
We've got to show the man, that we mean business.
We're going to be happy even if it's inconvenient to us.

Let's sleep in all day, and let's call in sick to work.
We've not been alone since the days of Ataturk.
Why are we trying to, stop an embargo of an island nation with no people on it at all?

I gotta know, do you want me to barter my soul for a coupon that says:
"You don't need to worry."
Track Name: Sweet Job
Sometimes I even like to go to work.
Sometimes I don't mind waking up.
Then every night when I go back to bed I dream of things to envelop.

I work all day to glean more from people who will starve if their car won't start.
I'm just a part of a huge machine mass producing artificial hearts.

I landed such a sweet job with Satan himself.
Track Name: Fashionably Mean
I need to know how this could all turn out.
What do you mean by "Dictators have no clout."?

You're controlling all my siblings, oh yeah.
You even control my mom and dad.
You're controlling all my siblings, oh yeah.
You even control my mom and dad.

I need to know what I'm supposed to be:
fashionably late or fashionably mean.

I need to impress my mother, oh yeah.
I need to impress my infant son.
I need to impress my mother, oh yeah.
I need to impress my infant son.
Track Name: Smiling Surprise
My life revolves around your Smiling Surprise.
Does it lie all alone here every night?
Do you know that it sits here?
No you don't, you don't, you don't.

My life revolves around your Smiling Surprise.
Do you know how I try to find it out?
My life revolves around your Smiling Surprise.
Do you keep it around here?
No you don't, you don't, you don't.
Track Name: Changing Me
Something in the atmosphere is changing me.
Are you a gas? Are you a gas?
Something in the ocean is changing me.
Are you an island out on the sea?

I know you stared at my face on a dare, and that was your mistake.

Something in my family is changing me.
Are you my ma? Are you my pa?
Something in history is changing me.
Are you William the Conqueror?

You control my fate underneath all this weight. What am I to do?
Track Name: Objective Perfect
I'll rewrite this line until you don't even know that it is me.
And I'll rerecord this song until you don't even know that I exist.

There's an objective perfect man, and I hear that he's got quite a few fans.
I'll rewrite this line until nobody could out-and-out dislike.
And I won't stop overdubbing 'till everyone agrees that it's all right.

What's in your heart you can believe, but now it's on bear midriffs not on sleeves.

Songs they should not be made by me.
It takes a whole village to make an LP.
Track Name: Awkward Extremities
Looking so tired, you can't understand my policy of reverse curfew.
I've got a shrug the size of Antartica, pacing the floor waiting for you.
And architecture's great and poetry is wonderful, but we both know nursing is the finest art.

When will I learn there's nothing special about people who will not leave their rooms?
What is is when your awkward extremities have canceled out my darkest hour.
Agoraphobia is nice and agoraphobia can stop you.
And it doesn't make much sense to hug Louder Than Bombs.
