Annabel 03:25
Annabel says to me, "I'd rather drive in the morning" 'Cause all her friends and enemies have all fled this town So we ride, so alive, at the stroke of 1 AM Speed on through the sunrise and then she disappears Do you believe Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical Lust is permanent, intangible and durable In my backyard, Astral Weeks on the stereo I say that I just don't feel beside you Annabel, you can stay the course but you'll never change me But feel free coming as you please Some nights we stay on the ground stumbling to get up again Some nights you stay underground, never to get up again Do you believe Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical Lust is permanent, intangible and durable Annabel, Annabel Buy me a beer and go to hell I don't need your scars in my life 'Cause I'm out here on the streets working all the Camel Lights girls 3rd & Washington redeems me all the time Love is fleeting and largely pharmaceutical Lust is permanent, intangible and durable If I can't change, then I'm in love And if I'm not, it's not enough

Arms 03:51
It always seems to end the same A figurehead in picture frames Menageries of mental games I never did suspect And every day my steady hands Take notice of these other plans To shake myself into the sands and keep my heart insane The whispers grow into a roar I'm always told to offer more than what I can But it's not a choice I make 'Cause everybody knows We'll only lose control So give up your arms now, baby There's no need for rumors, I need you to know Ambivalence to paranoid Calamities we should avoid A face that can remain devoid of any damn concern So I'm done explaining how my heart beats Or how the coldness keeps me on the ground I'm not a slave to misinterpretation "It's not you, it's me" 'Cause everybody knows We only lose control So give up your arms now, baby There's no need for rumors, I need you to know Said and done, you'll be the one overthrown So give up your arms now, baby There's no need for rumors, I need you to know

In this subconcious spectacle of my feeble mind I know Rock and roll means well, but it pours this honey in your ear And so of course I still believe in minor miracles I grab her hips and taste her lips She screams at me and runs back home Well, I should have known So now I'm making eyes at every girl in this god damned room Her and her and her and her and the two of them Well, this one's at the bar all by her lonesome sipping Stoli O And I lay some line about how we're on up next tonight She kinda smirks like she kinda knows I'm on to something here But then she disappears And I should have known I'm one more incident away from them locking me away In a place where I can't see my friends or family And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more I think of you and how you split my mind in two 'Cause you're so beautiful Like Elizabeth Banks in Invincible But all I can see of you are your Bette Davis eyes Well, this establishes a paradigm that stays with me I guess that's how you get a reputation that precedes Your actions just distract me from you ever reaching that stage of attraction And maybe this would have worked out if it wasn't for that stupid word of mouth Now I can't help myself Arms strapped across my chest I look so good in black But white suits me best I'm one more incident away from them locking me away In a place where I can't see my friends or family And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more I think of you and how you split my mind in two 'Cause you're so beautiful Like Olivia Wilde as Jenny Reilly But all I can see of you are your Betty Grable thighs I keep begging them for more But they've thrown away the key There's someone in my head And it's still me I'm one more incident away from them locking me away In a place where I can't see my friends or family And as they're bolting up this door so I can't hurt no one no more I think of you and how you split my mind in two 'Cause you're so beautiful Like Scarlett Johansson in Lost in Translation But all I can see of you is your Rita Hayworth smile

Bridges 04:10
It's like an angel flying across the stage Kinetic energy runs through our veins So ten years later, it stays inside of me I wanna break my legs just so I don't forget about you And everything you taught to me I wanna be a martyr But keep the message folded into my tongue Attenuated, I keep it underneath But I can feel it bursting through my chest Another moment, another tragedy It's so appealing, but all I wanna do is scream my lungs out Keep it close to everyone so I can be a hero Be the one to save somebody in need Here's your answer: I just wanna say thank you For all the pain that you've been through With every scar that's worn Another star is born And I just wanna say thank you I used to think I was just my DNA A mere reflection of what I used to be But this addiction will keep me moving on I keep my wit intact and fingers ready "Take a breather?" I can't understand it I just wanna be a savior But never condescend to those that I love Here's your answer: I just wanna say thank you The only thing that I can do With every scar that's worn Another star is born And I just wanna say thank you I just want to say thank you for every day
