Track Name: Sonny
only way you'll feel so alone
trash-talk, true feeling, lion is waiting
last game, last night, now you're gone
making up for nothing, sonny's not a fighter

edge of life you know how to fade
keep your hands locked on a throat, you keep living
birds ate the bread, now you're lost
thinking up a reason, sonny's not a fighter

it's the only way you'll feel so alone
lion keeps waiting for the trash-talk truth that you hold
last game, it's the last night, thinking up a reason, sonny's not a fighter
edge of life you know how to fade
keep on living locked on the throat of a love you betrayed
last game, it's the last night, making up for nothing, sonny's not a fighter
Track Name: I'm With Stupid
making a call in a crowd
climb follow, i'll just be here
had your mind up loud
didn't you? didn't you?

falling away from the rail
i can fix everything but just not this
make the most of the fullness of time
such a moment, a distinctive name

we finally figure out we don't know anything
gonna seem like they show a reason for it all
strong belief in a second chance
dumb luck, desire, stupidity

we finally figure out we don't know any thing
strong belief in a second chance
dumb luck: as good a reason as any

my parents went to florida, all i got was this shirt
i'm with stupid, and the mornings always hurt
wake up and take another look around
come on let's get a drink before they close
Track Name: The Word Is Lucky
somebody waiting outside for fiona
talking to her in the diner
list of cases, sudden nosebleeds
tension between attractive leads

late summer afternoon, just children
super powers are stronger
block out the feeling, block out the light
trick the day into submission

bus goes halfway home, we go all the way, does that make us lucky, make us see in helpful grey, we're too young to know the meaning of the word, thing that makes us lucky makes it worse

maybe you should release what you love?
you can't hold on til you break it
watching the clock in biology class
teenage restraint will just make you laugh
vision of boy and girlhood, dwelling underneath a respectable home
i'm always getting my hand deflected, truth is never as fun as you fear, so...

bus goes halfway home, we go all the way, does that make us lucky, make us see in helpful grey, we're too young to know the meaning of the word, thing that makes us lucky makes it worse
Track Name: End Of The World Song
i'm a lover not a fighter
need someone who knows her way
around a long-range rifle
the supplies can't guard themselves

just a farmer i'm non-violent
looking for a girl who could shoot to kill
home-grown food on home-built table
and our children eat their fill

now the world is gone, you could be the one
IDF or Combat 18 i don't care
pretty face, iron will
automatic weapons skill
repopulation at the forefront of our minds

oh my dear do you remember
the magic night our eyes first met
across that row of well-fed corpses
we can't let them go to waste

empty stores and well-stocked libraries
shouldn't let a good thing die
a spring and summer making candles
bedtime stories by their light

now the world is gone, you could be the one
IDF or Combat 18 i don't care
pretty face, iron will
automatic weapons skill
repopulation at the forefront of our minds
Track Name: Turnaround
into the station, a town will close its eyes
up through the land of steady habits; girl, acclimatise
as you stagger down summit, my heart is beating too
reaching the end of a thing that you love: you should wait, you never do

and to change, oh you gave it your best
cover up every name with an x
turn around, we want you to come home
lose a friend at least you keep the photograph

made the decision, make them all the time
feel just the same moving from one state to the next, you'll find
little river waiting; adam, abel, you
founding the nation of all by yourself
see the groups we split into

and to change, oh you gave it your best
cover up every name with an x
turn around, we want you to come home
lose a friend at least you keep the photograph
