Track Name: Oh Yeah
There's always something you want to bring back.
There's always Some Great Love you want to have back.

I can't say it'll happen again.

There's always some wrong move you want to take back.
There's always some sickening moment; You want to go back.

I can't say it'll happen again,
But I know you'll try your goddamn best.

And if anyone tries to bring you down with whatever guilt you possess, You tell them you're a big, big star to me.
We all have the same regrets, but further along we get better.
I promise you.
You'll just have to believe.
I'm telling you right now, I believe.

That with any luck, it'll happen again.
And with any luck, it won't happen.

There's always something you're meant to regret.
You're gonna regret it.
But there's always something you didn't expect.

Oh yeah.
Track Name: We're All Alright (Explicit)
It’s okay.
Nothing’s wrong.
We’re all alright.
I’m lying here on the floor, saving my life.
The music’s pumpkin'.
Beat is bumping,
Smoke is flowing into the night.

I look around; I don’t know a soul
But they keep saying where to go.
And I’m looking for a window,
Not to jump out of.
Just to jump out of and land on my feet again.

So you can take it easy.

It’s okay that there’s no window in sight,
But I’m panicking; panicked I’m losing the fight
My heart is thumping, head is bumping theirs,
Now they’re pulling a knife.

I look around; I don’t know a soul
But they keep saying where to go
And I’m looking for a window,
Not to jump out of.
Okay, to jump out of, but I want to land on my feet again.
And I know it ain’t easy.

You can be who you want to be,
Be what you want to be,
Be on MTV.
But you can’t be a failure.
And what you want to be is failure
‘Cause no matter the roads we’ve paved,
And no matter how things have changed,
You’re a fuck up and you will fuck it up.
You will fuck it up good
You will fuck it up how you know you should.
And I can’t help but blame you,
‘Cause you did it.

I don’t want what you’re smoking
‘Cause I want to keep my head on.
I don’t want what you’re smoking
‘Cause I want to keep my head on
And I know it ain’t easy.
It ain’t easy.

It’s okay.
Nothing’s wrong.
We’re all alright.
Track Name: Brand New
I threw it on the fire to see if it would burn
I took a deep breath of the coal-colored air
And I knew it was still there
I heard it singing “aha!”

I took it to the river to see if it would drown
When three hours passed I returned to the shore
I thought it was no more
I heard it singing “aha!”

There has to be a reason for my misery

I took it to the edge to see if it would die
I looked to the ground;
There was nobody there
And I looked it in the eye,
And it begged to stay alive

I’m trying to be somebody else
So you don’t have to be ashamed anymore
Singing 'I’m just trying to be brand new for you'
So you don’t have to be afraid.

Oh, but you do.

I took it to the edge to see if it could fly
But it once it went over, I felt the regret
‘Cause I knew that it had died
And I felt that so had I

And you were singing “aha!”

I hate to be the reason for your misery
Track Name: Life Is Perfect
I don’t want to be a child of consequence.
I’m sick and tired of covering where I’ve been
And what I want to do now, well I don’t know

It’s not for me.
Just wait you’ll see.
I’ll take that leap and try to reach you.
I’m trying to reach you.

It’s not for me.
This is not for me.

I don’t want to be a child of consequence.

I know that I’ve tried before.
But who’s ever loved you more
and tried to reach you?
I’m trying to reach you.
I know that I’m going away.
I know that you’ll remember the day.
The day I reached you.

I am everything you do.
I am everything you say.

I’m dying to reach you.

It’s all because.
You know it’s all because
I was trying to reach you

For a long, long time.
Track Name: This City Is For Losers
Confidence, either got it or you don’t.
You lost your head when you found out that you don’t.
Wiping the blood from your neck with a sleeve,
You will remember the day when you woke up from the dream.

This city is for losers like you and me.
Why haven’t you noticed?
Haven’t you seen?
This city is for losers.

Baby love, saw her just the other day.
She got your letters (you had written them in stone).
Said she’d been wasting her love on the winters in the East.
Then she flew away, left you waiting for the T.

This city is for losers like you and me.
Why haven’t you noticed?
Haven’t you seen?
This city is for losers.

Pack up and go. It’s just so easy.
Pack up and go. You’ll see it so easy to leave.
Pack up and go. It’s just so easy to leave and not believe in the past.
I don’t believe in the past.

This city kills you;
It’s breaking your heart.
You’re wasting your time and you’ve known from the start.
This city kills you;
It’s breaking your heart.
This city.

This city is for losers like you and me.
Why haven’t you noticed?
Haven’t you seen?
This city is for losers.
Track Name: Nothing Left To Love
Underneath the water
(Gently my friend)
I drowned all my secrets
(Kiss me again)

I’d like to begin again
I’d like to start anew
But where do I begin?

Underneath the water
(Swiftly my friend)
I swear I was breathing
(Hit me again)

The goal is to forgive, forget
But it’s never enough
Is it ever enough?

I’d kill to begin.

I came just as fast as I heard the news
Apologized for everything I’d done
Looked in the mirror, I was badly bruised
Then I looked into God, and she said
"Who’s gonna love you now,
When there’s nothing left to love?"

Who’s gonna love you now,
When there’s nothing left to love?

You better pray that I find you first.
You’re not prepared for what they do to things like you.
You’re not prepared for things they do to things like you.
