1. CHEMICAL KIDS AND MECHANICAL BRIDES

Like a rush shot through you
Everyone is watching you
Told you why I see no need for the sun
I've found a reason to say
A love you light is a love soon gone
If this is it
Don't bother cause this love is a lie
I'm a chemical kid / You're a mechanical bride
When every vein is red out of the blue
I held a diamond to the sun
To count the moments on account of the way you
Smile for me
Oh, we're in slow motion when you
Smile for me
But oh my God I've been looking
But I still hold your breath so you won't leave
Pastel red and porn star white
Ghost on the altar
We breathe don't leave
Say that the night sings alone
And if there's a God
Then I'm letting Him go
All for you
You alone
Raise my hands
At the thought of you leaving me alone
What if I still care
Don't torture me or beg me
Can you make me believe in tiring
As you fall fast asleep it reminds me
Of the slow symphonies behind me
They sing along
All the nightmares you'll see tomorrow
All the stars on your ceiling they glow
But not for you
Through the trees I'll blow


2. CURRENTS CONVULSIVE

So long, congratulations, break a leg tonight
What a shame I heard the understudy died under the knife
Crying backwards under badroom light
The operation

I don't think you'll ever want to love me
You'd better listen to your doctor doctor

Sober up and bury the empty cup
In a backyard of Seattle we used to lie
When I sew you up, don't let me stop bleeding
Tiny stitches that you placed into my skin
Won't let me go, oh no, oh no
And they're running the mood
So i'll toast every beat of my heart like a miracle

And I don't think you'll ever want to love me
You'd better listen to your doctor
Doctors lie, lie, lie if the dollar is right
Oh my sweet little girl, hold your mouth and you'll be alright

(Gather round, gather round. Ladies and gentlemen, come from far come from wide,
The moment you've all been waiting for
Tonight, join us as we explore the spine-chilling
Mystery of death
And the miracle of resurrection)

Please understand me when
I'd rather see you dead
Than live without me, so thirsty for more
Beyond the sea blue light I met the love of my life
She'd rather see me dead than face me
I like your starry eyes, they yell surprise! Surprise!
I'm in love...but not for long
Our operation, call off the operation

Another wave has turned its back on me
Crashed back on the eyes of the first I see
(If your delicate eyes don't blink someday they might as well be gone) Can't count on anything. For you I'd count the salt under the sea.


3. YEAH BOY AND DOLL FACE

Were you honest when you said
"I could never leave your bed"
Wake me up and let me know you're alive
And will you fall in love again
Is the scent slowly spreading
I've been answering machines all night
And are the doctors dancing in
While the ambulances sing
Another boy without a sharper knife
The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation
Wrap this up
With a knife that loves to feel
How do you know how deep to go before it's real
Take me home
Can I even complicate your breathing
I guess I'm just your average boy
This is me
With a knife in the back
And a grip on the grass
It's cold and I don't want to be here
I guess I'm never comfortable or situational
Are we losing or beginning
To try a new life without you
The moment, that's where I
Kill the conversation
Wrap this up
With a lie that I'm enjoying every minute with myself
And she could make hell feel just like home
So I'm never leaving her alone
But if your lightning lips aren't mine
Then I don't know the awkward stranger to my right
But she's crying
I only need one hand to drive
When you're with me
You are my getaway
Oh no
And don't you ever feel alone
And don't you wish you were home
Cut the lust tonight
Alright, alright tell me why my
Little Mona Lisa told a lie
Do you want me
Do you want to let me know that you're ok
A diamond gold ring
Customized to cut your circulation
But I couldn't let you go
No, I never let you go my dear
So keep talking cause I love to hear your voice
Your voice again


4. I'D RATHER DIE THAN BE FAMOUS

Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
Come on Holly put the gun down for me
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
They're tryin' to take it from us, they're tryin' to take it from us
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You're so pretty when you dress for the grave

Love me as you lay
Dizzy and falling your legs dangling
Although accidents happen, they happen to me
Try to forget the beginning and end

Forget the world without removing the glass from your lips
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
They're tryin' to take it from us, they're tryin' to take it from us
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
The sun's comin' up and we're still awake

Am I the trigger of your gun
Your pretty eyes don't give me much choice
But I'll take them home
I've done som thinkin'of my own
And when I come home
I want to be done, don't want to be famous no more

Leave that girl alone
My teenage heart-attack keeps talking back
Keeps talking back to her
And I can't pretend that off this bolcony
We wouldn't want to jump off of it
And put an end to this
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
You love money and the sex in your veins
Call the police, this whole place is gonna burn
Doll up and sleep walk
Until we have some teeth marks
Narcotic sweet talk
Until we have some teeth marks
This whole place is gonna burn.


5. CHEAP BOUQUET

Stay young and at the top of our lungs
Our hands are free
Our lives have just begun

It's getting dark, we should go back
But what's the use if what you love is what you have?
And I could die right now
For something beautiful to take me somewhere else

Oh, I try to calm down
As I drag myself along these severed hands
(Severed hands) Are doing the very best they can

I'm gonna buy a cheap bouquet
Before it dies on the display
(Gonna break down)
Break down the better side of me
(The better side of me)

Well I know, I know if I die young
Then we can wake up screaming in your bed
And our lungs are begging us to calm down

And I scare myself with all that talk of severing
Doing the best or so it seems
(You've been mistaken)
Your finger's on the scale
(Burn like you never have before
Stop, drop and roll don't work in hell)
So what if I forget regret?
So what if I...
So what if I forget regret?
So what if I...
So what if I...
So what if I...
So what if I...

I want you to know that I...
That I've wrote this line a thousand times
Yeah
Forget regret

This must be the way it ends

Calm down as I drag myself along
These severed hands are doing the very best they can
As I drive my car into the sea
(I taste you like a hammer through my teeth)
Will someone tell me what it means to be alive?
It feels just like the feeling when you die

Oh, all right, I'm dead and I don't care if it's cold outside anymore
So come on, let's have some fucking fun


6. FALLING ASLEEP ON A STRANGER

Well you know that I'm cold
Black on constellations gold
And you know that your soul's
Black top under lacing won't let it go
It was all for you
All for you and more
She won't chase him anymore
To the end
Never leave
Fall asleep on the first I face
And they say
Play the game
You and me found love
Lost under the shade
Well you know I'm a ghost
Pull the note out of my throat
And leave me alone
But it's all for you
All for you and more
He won't take her anymore
To the end
Never leave
Fall asleep on the first I face
And they say
Play the game
You and me found love
Lost under the shade
Come back to my heart tonight
I don't care
Come back tonight


7. SHE SINGS IN THE MORNING

Wake up
A voice hits the air on a lonely coast
And I'll sing along like a prayer for you
I can dream up the words
I'll never see your face again
If we wake at
If we wake at all
She sings to me
If we wake at
If we wake at all
We'll try to change
They say love will never mean a thing
Still our hearts beat
So come on
So stuck on the only thing that we know
What we know starts to waste
If we wake at
If we wake at all
She sings to me
Can we be sure
If we wake at
If we wake at all
Oh my God


8. BALCONY SCENE

Don't react when I tell you
Don't react when I tell you
That bright lights mean nothing to you
Because no one would know
The sound of a ghost
And I might be something to you
Beyond beautiful
Is the sound of a ghost
Can we lose our minds
And call it love for the last time
My darling never rest
Until the darker gets
The best of all we had
Can the cold carry on
When the light means nothing to you
Then no one would know
The sound of a ghost
And I might be perfect with you
But no one would know
So tell me, tell me
Have you ever really danced on the edge
Is something still scaring you
Have you ever really danced on the edge
The count of three is up
Have you ever really danced on the edge
Alright then tell me so
Have you ever really danced on the edge
Just hold my hand and jump
And bright lights mean nothing to you
Because no one would know
The sound of a ghost
Oh, no one would know
The sound of a ghost


9. DRELLA

You're busy drawing hearts
You run your fingers down the glass
An open mirror
Now you're sleeping
In the front seat
Like a crushed leaf
On the concrete night
Murder ring
What are you talking about
Murder ring
And how did you get into my house
I think you buried me too deep
You had your way
You almost seem alive
But I've been driving you around
I didn't think it could have lasted
Now we broke another bracelet
Tore it off your wrist tonight
Tonight the center of the sun
Will separate in sparks
They're climbing up the sky and down the dark
Do you think
You'd better love me back
You said you want someone
Who actually cares
But I'll say what I want
Because nobody's around when I talk
It feels better to fall asleep alone
Because that's the only way I know
But I've been driving you around
I didn't think it could have lasted
Now we broke another bracelet
Tore it off your wrist tonight
And now that Cinderella's gone
She swallowed up the sun
A middle-class explosion could be nice
If we're the dynamite
Let us prey
Don't you miss me
Or the night we snuck out your window, Oh
Because baby, baby
You're so crazy now
Looks like I'm not the only one now
And I can finally see the light
Oh, there's a million stars tonight
A single one could save my life
Red water leaves us
As we collide
Drella, Drella
Red water leaves us
And I just drive


10. DIAMONDS AND WHY MEN BUY THEM

Oh no
Here we go again
I look to receive
What the earth and sea
Had thought it'd be best not to even give me
Even give me
Now you say that I never bother you
The way he did
Now open eyes
Now I saw the moon divorce the sky
Is this what it's like
Don't run
Spell out, spell out
Spell out to me babe
So every week we'll meet
A bed for the backseat
A love drunk memory
But such a beautiful routine
Now you say that I never bother you
The way he did
Now open eyes
Now I saw the moon divorce the sky tonight
This remedy is worse than the disease
And slowly killing me
We like to run our blood thin
And laugh at things we never did
We like to run our blood thin
And laugh at things
Resay, say hello
Now you say
"We're better off that way"
Now I saw the moon divorce the sky
Is this what it's like


11. WONDERLESS

I don't care
If your beautiful lips
Exist out there
Because I'm wonderless
Why the best can't make it in Hollywood
No more
It's like a long drag taken
Before the smoke hits the white sky
Like the birds at night
And it's fake just like the movies
Oh yeah
And I can't wait
Just to see you again
And your two faces are locked on mine
Had the worst time chasing the thought away
No hope
Oh no home
Because maybe I'm a fake
Maybe you're to blame
Maybe I'm a star
Stumbling drunk light
My mistakes I've made won't leave me alone
Oh no
And if you don't find me on the front page
Find a way to say that you saw me
And if you don't find me in a movie
Find a way to say that you knew me
You and I got lost along the way
But this will end some day some way
And if you don't find me at all
Then I won't care
Oh yeah
If I could find a place for the holiday
Maybe I would call
You're a payphone away
From the mess that I've become
I'm destroying what I love
