Track Name: Promises
What do you say when no one's really listening
when every point is missing
from the current show?

What do you say when everything's been spoken
it's all become a token
for all we know?

You can distil all your promises into one bright face
you can pretend all the sound you make can fill up that space
between what you want and what you get.

It's finally true, the whole world is exploding
too slowly too be noticed
and no one I know really cares

It's ok, we tell ourselves it's just too late
the sands of time and the winds of fate
and hey I just want to procreate

We don't mind that we don't have the answers
don't even pose the questions
we're too busy posing for family portraits that look quite good.

We can distil all our promises into one bright face
we can pretend all the sound we make can fill up that space
between what we want and what we get
I know what I want and what I'll get.
Track Name: Careful Selection
In the careful selection of your words
You find yourself doing all you can to not be heard
You find it's easier than you'd think
Picturing yourself right on the brink

All the games you like to play
You don't know if you're winning
It's hard to say
You always do know the score
But you're wondering what all that effort was for

I want to know whatever's getting you down
And I want to help you lose it and get found
If we can't be optimistic, we'll be impractically realistic
And I'm going to help you run it out of town

In the careful selection of your words
You find yourself doing all you can to not be heard
You find it's easier than you'd think
Picturing yourself right on the brink
Of something big

Feel the weight of what you know
Slipping off your shoulders now nice and slow
All you need is in your head
First you leap then you find the net

I want to know whatever's getting you down
And I want to help you lose it and get found
If we can't be optimistic, we'll be impractically realistic
And I'm going to help you run it out of town
Track Name: Total Clarity
It will all become clear if you can give it a year
Just accept what you don't know
Just relax because if you don't
You'll pay for it

You know it's true, you had nothing to do
With all of those things that happened next
And all the overreactions yet
You'll pay for it

If it's all the same I don't want to explain
You don't ever listen anyway
And it's not a game if you're always winning
And you don't ever really let me play

You try to fit in, take it all on the chin
With no one who'll really help you out
No one who knows what you're about
And you'll pay for it

If it's all the same I don't want to explain
You don't ever listen anyway
And it's not a game if you're always winning
And you don't ever really let me play
Track Name: Say Anything
What I want to say is impossible not to get offended by
If you'd even let me finish, and that's a big if

What you want me to say
What you want me to do
Doesn't make sense to anyone but you

Oh I love you sober, but drunkenly you will say anything
Here we are with your pledge again, at the thin end of the wedge again

What you want me to say
What you want me to do
Doesn't make sense to anyone but you

But you are not alone in this you know
You will be if you don't stop pushing

What I want to say you probably won't even notice
What any of us want to say will never get through

So what I want to do, what I'm going to do
Is move on I'm through
Track Name: Easy
They walk around here like they own the place
They walk around here giving themselves away
Don't they

It's so confusing trying to be in love
When you don't have a clue your attempts can be quite rough

You're making this all seem so easy
Far more than I thought it could be
You're making this all seem so easy

You're looking so amazing
I never want to change these things
Nothing really worries me anymore except the thought of losing you

You're making this all seem so easy
Far more than I thought it could be
You're making this all seem so easy
Far more than I thought it all could be

And I'm going back to basics for you
Just like I always wanted to
And I'm going back to basics for you
And I swear I always wanted to
