Track Name: we know how it ends
You know I smoke
20 white whales a day
All I catch is the end of the tail
We know how it ends, anyway

All Illinois
Girls and boys
We used to be
The bottom of an ocean

I wish it still was
But there never was a shortage of wishes
So see all the fishes

And when we're all dust
Our wishes are bust
The odds are high
That we'll blow away
(but please don't prove me right)

When all you need is good
Will you start to find
That you're an alright dude?

You know I love you
There never was a doubt about that
As you wrap your mind
Round the fact

That we will unravel
From pulling threads on this sweater
Yeah, we're good now
But we could be so much better

When all you need is good
Will you start to find
That you're an alright dude?
Track Name: someday this will matter
In this museum
Hear you whisper
Here is your passport
Mr. Mister

In a dream
On an underwater train
See the whales, jellyfishes
There's no fear, but this mystery

There are worlds you've never seen
Next to worlds you've never dreamed
Mr. Mister

This is a world
Built for falling in love
But nobody knows
Just what you're thinking of

There's a world
We'll share
When we discover how
In a dream (we do, we do)

Then you'll know
I've been wishing you well

Because this is a world
Built for falling in love
But nobody knows
Just what you're thinking of

My love
O, my love
Track Name: manic repression
People are not barns
They leave you once they're raised
Paint myself into a corner
And set the room ablaze

You are not a fruit
I shove into my face
You are not a flower
I place inside a vase

I am not a moth
You are not the light

But if it could be that simple
This could be a hit single

But that wouldn't change shit

Yeah, manic repression
Is a castrated mess
All of the speaking points
Poking the deaf

If it could be that simple
Yeah, if it could be that simple
This could be a hit single

Yeah, manic repression
Is a castrated mess
All of the speaking points
Poking the deaf

If it could be that simple
If it could be that simple...
Track Name: you will always be a pussy
Go figure it out, straight scope
Figure it out
Then you'll know it
Figure it out

Stayed up late to figure it out
And I don't give a goddamn where I'm going
As long as you go
Go keep on glowing

Go figure it out, scape goat
Figure it out
Soon you'll know it
Figure it out

Trained myself to be alone
So frightened by the sound of the telephone
Straight and narrow
Walk the tight rope
It's getting lonely
But I'm filled with hope
If I can afford it

Life's a pawn shop
Trade it in for love
Life's a bus stop
But where's the fucking bus?

Go figure it out, Sherlock Holmes
Go figure it out
Then you'll know it
Figure it out

Packed my things
And I wrote a letter
No matter the case
Things could always be better

I'm not discontent
But don't get me wrong
My mood and the weather
They never seem to get along

Life can be a warm place
Soaking in the sound
Heartbreak is the common cold
With all this love around

Figure it out, scape goat
Figure it out
Then you'll know it

Figure it out, straight scope
Figure it out
Then you'll know it
Track Name: life is funny
Life is funny
Yeah, we know
Yeah, we know

But I keep spitting bullets out
Every time we talk
You keep the shadows on your sunburn
Everywhere you walk
And I will chase you away
Before you can leave
I'll play my cards so close to my chest
That I can barely breathe

Cuz life is funny
Yeah, we know
Yeah, we know

This little boy, he watered plants
While his grandma was away
But they all died, to his surprise
There was no one to blame
Even though he cared for them
And he watered all the leaves
Silly boy, you gotta feed the root
Of all living things

Cuz life is funny
Don't you know?
Don't you know?

And if you wanna fix me, baby
Go on, blow the candles out
And why you wanna whisper it?
You would rather shout
Hahahahahahahahaha
Cuz life is funny

But I keep spitting bullets out
Every time we talk
I keep the shadow on my sunburn
Everywhere I walk
And I will chase you away
Before you can leave
I'll play my cards so close to my chest
That I can barely breathe

Cuz life is funny
Yeah, we know
Yeah, we know

I used to be so wishy washy
But now I'm not so sure
Cuz I could never close my heart
With you blocking the door
And now it's still trapped in my mind
It doesn't matter if
You're standing here right beside me
Or a long lost silhouette

Cuz life is funny
Yeah, we know
Yeah, we know

I know you never wished for this
The wind blew all the candles out
And every time you whispered it
It sounded like a shout
There's nothing in your way
You conceal it with it kiss
And most the people you have met
You will one day miss

Cuz life is funny
Yeah, we know
Yeah, we know

Cuz it goes
Hahahahahahahahahaha

Life is funny
Track Name: across the universe
Words are flowing out like endless rain into a paper cup,
They slither while they pass, they slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow, waves of joy are drifting through my open mind,
Possessing and caressing me.
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Images of broken light which dance before me like a million eyes,
That call me on and on across the universe,
Thoughts meander like a restless wind inside a letter box they
Tumble blindly as they make their way
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.

Sounds of laughter shades of earth are ringing
Through my open views inviting and inciting me
Limitless undying love which shines around me like a
million suns, it calls me on and on
Across the universe
Jai guru de va om
Nothing's gonna change my world,
Nothing's gonna change my world.
