Is it too soon? Too soon to drunk-dial someone at noon? Or should I give it a day or two? What would Satan do? The second time The second time we had a fight It lasted the better part of my life Now I won't drive you crazy any more Who am I? I could have been anyone And we'd have wound up here in the end 'Cause you and I We don't have any fun And why should I think we would when we were never friends? Sometimes Sometimes you got to be a fuckin' prick To get you message across this thick-ass wall They call a "friendly chat" You bust my balls and then you break my back It must be nice to be so unattached and fine You're always on your mind You've got an attitude they can't unwind And why would they try? Who am I? I could have been anyone And we'd have wound up here in the end But you and I We don't have any fun And why should I think we should when we were never friends? Never friends Me and you, we were never friends Me and you, we were never friends No we were never friends, we were never friends We were never friends no Never friends. Me and you we were never friends. Me and you we were never friends. We were never friends We were never friends We were never friends, we were not Like autumn trees that shed their leaves We'll get them back next spring Won't feel a thing Some days we'll grieve, some dreams we'll leave But we will never miss them Never miss them Never miss them Never miss them

I know you think I'm here just 'cause I'm stalking you But I'm also here to show my deep deep deep deep deep deep deep respects In loving memory of what's-his-name Oh Christ I've done it, I've gone and offended all the guests All those mistakes that we'd re-take We couldn't if we liked I know it's sad I wish I had The chance to make things right But we've lost this one What have we done? And now it can never be again This weekend I went to your party Friday But in retrospect I should have been alone All the girls just asked me Java questions Java nice car? Java good job? Java big home? Why do they treat me like I've got no feelings Well I've got feelings but they're all a little wrong All those mistakes that we'd re-take We couldn't if we liked I know it's sad I wish I had The chance to make things right We've lost this one What have we done? And now it can never be again But I feel it, like you do And I feel it, like you do I feel it like you do I can feel it I got to say that it's been awesome seeing ya Although you've changed since you've been hanging with the goths Cause you're not from Transylvania, you're from Pennsylvania And the difference is apparent in your clogs Don't tale about your music in the past tense And if things don't go well, stop and cut the loss Don't sing songs in a bad fake southern accent Never tell them that you're bigger than the Sox All those mistakes that we'd re-take We couldn't if we liked I know it's sad I wish I had A chance to make things right We've lost this one What have we done? And now it can never be again

I take this as a good sign it’s on the mend It’s their money and their ice but we brought the fans You watch a show of the lunar eclipse and then you Tell your kids to go to sleep well Some dudes are the worst when it comes to this I would tell you but you already know Why can’t we just leave it alone? I would tell you but you already know yeah Why can’t we just leave it alone? I don’t like the way you look at me sometimes I told you before I’ll tell you one more time yeah one more time I would tell you but you already know Why can’t we just leave it alone? I would tell you but you already know yeah Why can’t we just leave it alone?

Mostly Water 02:23
It's a lie A plan to make nothing feel right Everything dies it's true There's some things that just stick with you That you can't undo I know That you're mostly water but still There's something about the way that you feel That belies it And it's true That you're mostly water but you The water is a flame to the fuel Breaking hearts Through the windows of subway cars Stand clear of the closing doors Stealing souls On summer strolls I know That you're mostly water but still There's something about the way that you feel Belies it And it's true That you're mostly water but you The water is a flame to the fuel It's a lie A plan to make nothing feel right Everything dies it's true There's some things that just stick with you That you can't undo I know That you're mostly water but still There's something about the way that you feel That belies it And it's true That you're mostly water but you The water is a flame to the fuel And I know That you're mostly water but still There's something about the way that you feel That belies it And it sucks But it didn't used to bother me much It was water off the back of a duck

I remember you cut you hair 'Cause you were sick of the way that they stared You tried to make yourself plain It didn't work and they still looked the same I was just a lonely kid I'd never dealt with the things that you did You explained it was different for me That you were something that I'd never be I hate hate hated the way that it felt The push from inside And I'd wait wait wait For the change of my life I hate hate hated the way that it felt The push from inside From May to September I's wait wait wait And now I remember I cut my hair I didn't want them to think that I cared I made my own little change It didn't work and I still looked the same You explained it was different for me That you were something that I'd never be My insides sank to the ground The memory still pains me now I hate hate hated the way that it felt The push from inside And I'd wait wait wait For the change of my life I hate hate hated the way that it felt The push from inside I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said I remember the things that you said

Not Sorry 03:37
Go, if you think I’m coming on too strong No, you know I won’t admit that I was wrong When, when I grow up I wanna be right I don’t care if you don’t wanna know Don’t, don’t try and stop me running on Just, just try and run me outta town One good turn deserves another I take a bite and drink up all your time You, you look at me like I’m a Frankenstein You, you flick your torches like a cigarette I don’t care if you don’t wanna know Don’t, don’t try and stop me running on Just, just try and run me outta town One good turn deserves another I know you think you heard it all before Well, I think that you could stand to hear some more You, you had enough when I say so I don’t care if you don’t wanna know Don’t, don’t try and stop me running on Just try and run me outta town One good turn deserves another And I’m not sorry And I’m not sorry And I’m not sorry And I’m not sorry

Well I think it's funny, but I know it's not funny At least they say it's not funny 'til someone gets hurt Come on it's not a big deal I fucked up the meal I made an action painting all down your shirt And I know you're perturbed But if you use your words I bet the waiter might still let us order dessert And now I've learned that you're not impressed by my little sing-song And all of your texts read like titles of Prince songs And noone has to know that we're on drugs Well I think it's funny, but I know it's not funny At least they say it's not funny 'til someone gets hurt And maybe now that we're there I should act like I care But baby I know that you're not the sensitive sort But you're offended by emails from females that I receive Baby get off your high horse and get on the (T) I know you could care less about my magnum opus And all of our friends are passed out on the sofa So no one has to know that we're on drugs Well I think it's funny, but I know it's not funny At least they say it's not funny 'til the pain is past And now that it's gone and we've both moved on It's pretty clear that love like ours wasn't meant to last But I recall that you weren't impressed by my little sing-song And now all my texts read like titles of Prince songs And no one has to know that we were in love We were in love We were in love We were in love

I want to be with you For a thousand years Long after all this disappears And when we emerge After all those years Then we will rule over the earth Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be I remember when this used to be an outdoor market Long before the bombs went off and nightly air raids started There were grocery stores and restaurants and public parks You could use a mobile phone or you could go out after dark Now the broken sidewalk is a spider's web of power wires Someone's ruuning down the street with all their clothes on fire We don't bother learning people's names to call them by And we don't talk that much, just try to find a place to hide I've got secretive plans for us But I need your unfailing trust I want to be with you For a thousand years Long after all this disappears And when we emerge After all those years Then we will rule over the earth Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be We went out this morning We barely made it back That dumpster hiding place Was all that kept our skulls intact Now we've been living in the tunnel in a burned out van Making cutlery from credit cards and coffee cans Someone told me about Atlanta And then heard about LA It never crossed our minds that someday we would share their fate That burning Citibank is belching bills into the sky And its alarm's been going constantly for seven nights I've got secretive plans for us But I need your unfailing trust I want to be with you For a thousand years Long after all this disappears And when we emerge After all those years Then we will rule over the earth Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be Just like you said it would be

I was only forty two, and I I didn't know what to do, and I I wish I could know what I knew They always say, "live life with no regrets" I wish I'd thought of that before I left So many minds I've been in about the doubt, the indecision So many times I've been afraid to take the risk-all mission The one in control of the leash Is the one that cares the least They always say, "live life with no regrets" I wish I'd thought of that before I left So many minds I've been in about the doubt, the indecision So many times I've been afraid to take the risk-all mission So many minds I've been in about the doubt, the indecision So many times I've been afraid to take the risk-all mission Oh oh oh oh oh oh I don't know I don't know Oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh I don't know I don't know Oh oh oh oh They always say, "live life with no regrets" I wish I'd thought of that before I left So many minds I've been in about the doubt, the indecision So many times I've been afraid to take the risk-all mission So many minds I've been in about the doubt, the indecision So many times I've been afraid to take the risk-all mission

No one told you it would be OK And it turns out they were right It wasn't omission It wasn't an error or an oversight The world has never taken kindly To an insolent and wily Misanthropic and misunderstood kid But they're not angry with you 'cause you refuse to conform They're angry with themselves because they already did Someday they will One day they will Someday they'll die It all slowed down Every time you came around It's easy to see It's so easy to see now That I trusted you without grounds And you can steal my heart And you can steal my car And I gave you my keys so you can take what you want 'Cause you're a true friend And I know a true friend Because a true friend's the one who stabs you in the front Someday they will One day they will Someday they'll die They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time They've got to die some time, die!
