Track Name: Snarl Hideout
oh, i never feel like i'm supposed to
are you sure that you do?
are you sure that you do?

today i'm an enormous ridiculous beautiful thing
i'll terrorize the countryside, every step makes a mile
'cause i'm the main event, i'm the de facto prom king
like any good menace should be
engines rev with a twitch of my smile
just what you came here to see
a big dumb grin for my cheeks, not a thought in my head
i'm a construct, a horrible machine
believe me

and the worst part
isn't even knowing that you're losing it
yeah, the worst part
is that you're slowly getting used to it
you hide away

today i'm floating sideways through a perfect curving line
tomorrow i'll get shot back down
through a creeping mess of sound
no matter how high we climb
we're all stuck in the stomach of the sky
but, hey, you're welcome to try
and paint your name all over the ground
but then, ha! your work is never done
you stay up twenty-four hours every night for the tower
of heaven that you see behind the sun
it's how you run
it's how you run

and the worst part
it ain't even knowing that you're losing it
yeah, the worst part
is that you're slowly getting used to it
you hide away
Track Name: No Fun
charlie at the station
had a revelation
i need confirmation
we need confirmation
come on
come on

all across the nation
visions of creation
half-awake and pacin'
tracing my location
come on
ooh, come on

we're always
half-drunk and innocuous, we're only
bad days and grudging trust, we're only
too sober on the sun, oh, pretty:
i'm no fun, yeah, we're no fun

no fun, yeah, we're no fun

i don't have to take it
i don't want to make it
i've been innervated
i've been relocated
come on
come on

charlie, do you hate it?
charlie, let's debate it
maybe he just faked it
tell me, i've been waitin'
come on
i've been waitin', come on

we're always
half-drunk and innocuous, we're only
bad days and grudging trust, we're only
too sober on the sun, oh, pretty:
i'm no fun, yeah, we're no fun

no fun, yeah, we're no fun

at first it takes your care at first it takes your care
what are you so scared about, what are you so scared?
nothin' to be scared about, no, nothing to be scared about there...
Track Name: Jealous Machine
and i only know who we are when we pray to the gods
of stimulus and response
and show all our teeth when there's blood in the water
and follow the smoke in the air

we're going straight in for the kill now, darling,
we're going straight in for the kill
it's how we get our thrills
it's how you get your thrills
it's how you get your thrills

i asked her what she said as if the words never left her mouth. i looked at the place where her neck curved around, i just wanted to hear it again, and let myself drown in that sound, with her teeth on my neck. the question is "why are your fangs on my skin, again, darling?" and her mind set to kill, oh, i still wanna be sure i have this correct, will you? and with her voice in my head, with her voice in my head, she repeated, she said:

'cause you're a puddle and i'm the atlantic
'cause you're a puddle and i was a hurricane
'cause you're a puddle and i'm the atlantic
'cause you're a puddle and i was a hurricane
'cause you're a puddle and i'm the atlantic
'cause you're a puddle but i was a hurricane
i am an ocean and i am the last rain
you are a puddle but i was a hurricane

you're not quite readable but that's all the same
'cause your head's a joke, you are an empty frame
the back door sticking out you're left alone
your new boss says he doesn't like your tone
tv says you got a rotten soul
all your neighbors have kids on the honor roll
no one else makes problems no one else complains
do you have no honor, do you have no shame?
hey, do you understand how lucky you are?
america is shining, you could be a star
give us a smile, chin up, do you feel the love yet?
what could you want more than to be made part of it?
well, we can help, we can help you decide
paint a whole new image and act yourself all alive
enjoy our fine selection of neon lights
just sit down and try not to look so uptight, baby

hey my head is a sham, it's a lost cause, full of liquid lead, helium dreams that take all of my time, we're gonna detonate burn ourselves alive, down into the earth's core, sticking to the sides. i'm so sorry, but we're headed inevitably and we can't save anyone, much less you or me, baby, all locked in and tight-lipped, too scared to speak, maybe, lead me down to the impact site and tell me as you take me:

you were a puddle and i'm the atlantic
you were a puddle and i was a hurricane
you were a puddle and i'm the atlantic
you were a puddle and i was a hurricane
you were a puddle and i'm the atlantic
you were a puddle and i was a hurricane
you are a waste and you're gonna evaporate
you're just a puddle and i was a hurricane

and i only know who we are when we pray to the gods
of stimulus and response
and show all our teeth when there's blood in the water
and follow the smoke in the air
look at you; now look at me
now, can you see?
we're perfect normal freaks
bloodthirsty pretty me
we're lovely jealous machines
we're lovely jealous machines
we're lovely jealous machines

on your time, alellujiah - ha ha-ha ha,

Track Name: U.S. RTE 380-W
do you remember when you used to say,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember why you used to say?

do you remember how you used to say,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember that you used to say?

from every mountaintop, from every rock,
you were omnipresent i could
tell, when the earth would rumble underneath

all nights last summer i went on the ride,
oh, i loved the way it shook the
ground even when it wouldn't let me sleep

no room for doubt how we used to shout,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember that? remember when?

don't give a thought to whether or not
anyone is listening dis-
solve in the clouds, and begin again

do you remember when you used to say,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember why you used to say?

do you remember how you used to say,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember that you used to say?

no room for doubt, how we used to shout,
"I will never give it to you"
do you remember? I remember you

do you remember how you used to say,
"I will never give it to you"
steel your resolve and continue through

ask the stars for just one piece of wisdom
ask the ocean what you oughta do
ask the world to never ever crumble
watch the sky and try to follow through
Track Name: Buddy
hey, buddy, tell me what pisses you off
tell me you're angry and that you can't stop
give me the bile you're trying to keep down
all adolescent and hissy and proud

hey, buddy, show me the shit that you're in
all of the stuff you can't stand to forgive
then tell me everything's gonna work out
say we're not too sick to stand and shout

and so i don't know what you're worried about
i don't know what you're worried about

oh, i wake up at three A.M.
with a crack in my neck and a half-moon split in my forehead
oh, la lai lai

my breath is steady; i'm alive, i guess
but a runaway train by definition never gets to rest
oh, la lai lai

wake up, and i stink of bad coffee and sweat
and then we just freshen and try to forget
oh, la lai lai

hey, buddy, tell me that we're up in the clouds
and we're not coming down, and, oh, whatever am i worried about?
oh, whatever am i worried about?

hey, buddy! when you look around, do you see
people we ain't meant to be
and what does that make you believe?
i don't know what you're worried about

hey, buddy, break me down, tell me i'm wrong
tell me i've stewed in myself for too long
i can't decide what'd be worse to believe
we're both just as bad or you're better than me

hey, buddy, i think i'm sick of your grin
all of your highs wear my patience too thin
can't get ahead, but then, who's keeping score?
hey, buddy, i don't like you any more

no words, no doubt
and i don't know what you're worried about
Track Name: Red Greens
and the day before i left
placed my head on your neck
said "before i turn twenty-one i'm probably gonna start goin' gray"
well i'm there and then some
won't admit to no one
but there's a part of me that's eager and complicit in decay

painted world, i'm leaving
i'll erase our demons
i see every shade the same, i cross the city with my sight
sketch me into the scene
with your reds and your greens
i can't see a thing, i'm out here looking for my blue-eyed sky

and with no insistence
at any given instant
you could fling your cigarette butt in the gas tank of my car
and this sideways line of thought
somehow improves the luck we've got
of ever getting where we're going: aiming pretty far

and when the lousy weather
washed out our mascara
realized we could snap each other's necks in half a moment and be gone
and when i'm down on my luck
the concept gets me back up
and i love that; and i always will, and even if it's wrong

i'll take a place just off the road
it's halfway there, i'll call it home
wash off my grin like a ballpoint tattoo
who cares about colors? they don't tell the truth
i am new, i am new, i am new, i am new
Track Name: 380-E (...never far enough)
oh and stop by the side
of the road every night
wonder how far can you get? without looking behind
with that spin in your head, how far, yeah, this time?

i'm thinking
what is there, really, in a face or a name
what does it take to ever give it away
and how do you know when you're finally gone
when you've rid yourself of everything but what you want
what is it about this that makes it okay?
why is it so damn hard to just believe what you say?
because you can't be sure, no matter how sure you are
and you'll understand as soon as you run comfortably far

that in a cruel twist of fate, all you got is your head
and if you take a step back, think about what you said
you'll just be bitter and heaving, yeah, you'll only obsess
and keep it deep in your lungs and keep it high in your chest
everyone else is just fine without you tonight
and you've already gone, you've severed your ties
what is there, really, in a name and a face?
not as much as i need, but more than i can take

oh, and wake in a sweat
from a daydream, i guess
no matter how many times i recur and retry
i can't come up with a script where it all turns out fine

i'm thinking
how do you know how to stop when you fuck up?
how did you learn how to stop when you fuck up?
how do you know how to stop when you fuck up?
how did you learn how to stop when you fuck up?
how do you know how to stop when you fuck up?
how did you learn how to stop when you fuck up?
how do you know how to stop when you fuck up?
how did you learn how to stop when you fuck up?

tell the stars you think you understand now
tell the ocean you've learned what to do
tell the earth you know just where you're going
watch the sky and pray you'll get there soon
Track Name: Almost Always
well i can't blame you for getting that tired
and slipping away in the end
yeah, by now we are such wonderful liars
we've successfully stopped making sense

somewhere out in the crowd, we're sinking into the sun
out here we are a product and a sum of everyone
is something gonna change your mind
can we get off of the highway and run

drag me away to your big wide blue
i know that you're almost always here when i need you
at least i can hear you
i can hear you
i can hear you
i can hear you

you're worried that i'm up in the clouds
and you're wondering what the action is worth
i'm sorry, but i've never liked to speak very loud
i can't state it any other terms

i don't think there's anybody under my skin
i'm an empty head, a disembodied grin
oh, something's gotta change my mind,
something's gotta let me begin

drag you away to our fever dream
you know that i'm always almost here when you need me
if you need me
but can you see me?
can you see me?
can you see me?
can you see me?

so you're blind but i'm invisible
and i'm deaf but you can't speak
and somehow that works out
and it's almost always enough

yeah it's almost always enough
almost always enough
is "almost always" enough?
almost always, yeah
it's almost always enough
always enough
is "almost always" enough?
Track Name: You're a Riot
like a chant at an altar,
neverending prayer on the twos and fours
i've heard enough, i'm hearing it everywhere
get me my coat, please, show me the door

oh, you're a riot
we love having you around
oh, you're a good kid
you'll figure something out
oh, without a doubt

i remember last summer, we were deep in a tunnel;
i slept in my clothes
i swear i feel the earth caving under us but up here, ha, well...
no one wants to know

because, oh, you're a riot
we love having you around
oh, you're a good kid
you'll figure something out
i don't know what you're worried about

guess it's likely i'm selfish, just don't know what i've got
or else my hearing's gone
'cause i can't tell the blastbeats from the ballads
just the same old chorus to every song

after all,
i'm a riot
we love having me around
oh, i'm a good kid
i'll figure something out

hey, buddy! yeah,
oh, does it take your care
it takes my takes my care
it takes me takes my care
it takes your care, it takes it takes it takes our care, yeah
oh does it take your care
there ain't anyone there?
oh if it takes your care
and are you laughing yet,
all for the best and are you laughing yet
hey, buddy, look over, is there anybody left?
and are you laughing yet
and are you laughing yet
and are you laughing, yeah
( ...figure something out )

you know, i've never really let myself get angry
i've never felt particularly weak
and i've never worried 'bout the future, no
i'm only terrified of me
