Track Name: Take Me Back
I've been a mean man
I've had some things to say I shouldn't have said
It's been a long few days
I've been some places that I may regret

I know
I won't be gone for long
I know
I can't keep moving on
I know
I might be slow but I know
I want to come home

It's hard to stay fine
It's hard to be without you all the time
I know I've had my doubts
I'd rather turn around than do without

I know
I won't be gone for long
I know
I can't keep moving on
I know
I might be slow but I know
I want to come home

Take me back I want to take you to the beach again
Take me back I want to see you in the sunlight
Take me back I want to live inside your house again
Take me back I want to see you in the morning
Take me back I never meant to leave you all alone
Take me back although I know I should be better
Are you gone already, can I ever make it up?
I miss you
Track Name: Wasting My Time
Stop making out with all your friends
I said I don't care, but I do
I'm not a fool, I hope you know
When did you get that new tattoo?

I tend to worry a lot, this isn't helping any

You say you love me but you're wasting my time
Sometimes I wonder, but you fool me at night
All these impressions say we're moving like light
My inclination is to feel that you're mine

So tell me straight, are we all right?
OK that's fine, I'll ask again
I never know what's up with you
(I want it more, you want it less)
We used to kiss, remember when

Sometimes I get the impression that we feel differently

Without this time, what do we have?
I take it back, I didn't know

You say you love me do you
Sometimes I wonder about you
Track Name: Custody
I'm taking you in custody
I need you for myself
You know you mean so much to me
I won't take no one else

What if we all did?
Wouldn't we all die?
Isn't it too much?

Indoors I learned cryptography
Your words end up nonsense
Big boulders fall in front of me
I'll get to you or else

Make songs and be some part of me
Your nails inside my head
My particle economy
Leads on to something else
Track Name: You Know Who
I couldn't make it without you
There's not a better one out there, honey, but
You know who
He's got a ton of advice now
He really knows about life man, now he says
You should too

Sometimes I think he might be promising
(Hold it out, I'll take it later)
These things I'm not so sure you ought to bring
(Throw it down, I'll catch it later)
Don't knock a guy for trying honestly
(Help me out, I need a favor)
Maybe the truth is I don't want to be
(Let me out, goodbye my neighbor)
Too good or too suspicious, hello witness, don't be looking long

It's just a hell of a trick, man
You're such a son of a bitch man, you could be
So much more
It's just a flick of the wrist, man
Whatever number are hits just can't be all
This is for

Sometimes I look back on our dynasty
I know we've never valued privacy
But there are deeper needs than honesty
I've helped us out since we don't want to be

I'm not going out today
Can't hear them talking anyway
Long waits in narrow space
Hold our for any other place
Please leave me out of this
Just wonder what it is I did

Make sure you know who's done the offering
Just know this isn't all we're auditing
There's not a name for where we ought to be
I don't see half of who I used to see
Track Name: Density
Nine times and no signs of accidents
Hang by the fire and pretend to be missed
Make eyes and talk about back home again
Six tips for being my new best friend

Mixed up in all kinds of fixes now
Fine time to pick to be out in the sticks
Seems weird the way she's seen so much these days
She's seen too much, I've said as much

(Memory)
I can't tell you to go
(Memory)
I will live with you always

Hatched out from action and matchmaking
Mankind and all its inveterate wits
Mixture of apathy and ardor
Caught out on the plain, I'm as bold as rain

Nine times and no signs of accidents
Hang by the fire and pretend to be missed
Make eyes and talk about back home again
Six tips for being my new best friend
Track Name: Bloody Monday
Monday, bloody Monday
Gotta get up and go to work
I imagine a world in which no one works at all
Of course, industry would collapse
There'd be nothing left to eat
I imagine a world in which I don't work at all

It's beautiful
It's wonderful
I read all the books worth reading
I write several for myself
I compose a symphony
I learn all the names of all the trees
But unfortunately, I'm about to be late

The majesty
The entropy
I rewrite the constellations
I invent new kinds of birds
I find all the seven seas
I'm the master of eternity

My time is only mine now
I own the only thing
The days go on so long, it's all a dream
Track Name: Moving On
Left in such a rush
I still have your things
Will we keep in touch
I should know some tricks by now

Moving on, moving on

Get you on your feet
You might be okay
How will you get by?
I've been such a help, I know

Moving on, moving on

On to greater things
I've been held so back
Now that I'm alone
I know I'll be on my way

Moving on, moving on

Come and see me soon
I'll be on the phone
Making deals, you know
See if I can leave my room

Might be the only good chance you had
Track Name: Never Be Found Again
You could be leaving the Superdome
You could believe in the fall of Rome
You could be getting away with it
You could be having your way with it
You could pretend that you're next to me
You could be dead but you'll never be
You could enjoy a philosophy
You could endure an apostrophe

Or you could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again

You could avoid all the shining sun
You could be faking another one
You couldn't ever take care of me
You couldn't ever take care of me
You could escape with your dignity
You could evaporate freely
You could be having a better time
You wouldn't always have to lie

Or you could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again
You could never be found again

You could never be found again
Track Name: Emmanuel
Hello
We haven't met yet
Hello
My name is Emmanuel

Don't hold a thought so dear
You wouldn't doubt it
Don't need a friend so bad
You couldn't live without it

We are Emmanuel
Welcome to wisdom
Angels and never-do-wells
Both could use some
Guidance

Without
Making an entrance
Without
Needing to be without

Even the factories
Cannot be bothered
Even the simplest of these
Have a mother and father

We are Emmanuel
Welcome to wisdom
Angels and never-do-wells
Both could use some
Guidance
Track Name: You Say You Will
I hadn't thought this would be very hard
It was easy at the time
Guess I figured you'd still be here
Didn't think you'd get so tired

It makes sense though, you didn't have me
I just had you around
If I'd wanted a friend, well, we shouldn't have started
But that's happened now

Oh, oh, now what have I done to you
Oh, oh, the times we had
Now my intentions are mocking me

I see you out sometimes, can't tell if you're happy
I can't bear to ask
I know you saw me, you know I saw you
But we play it off, look away fast

He doesn't look like much, I don't think you're happy
How can I be surprised?
I see you dancing, and I'm dancing
But this doesn't feel right

Oh, oh, now what have I done to you
Oh, oh the times we had
Now my inventions have come to life

You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home

Checking in on the sites I can see you at
I wonder how you are
Can't tell much, but there's a picture with him
You're not so far away

That I couldn't stop by and see you
I know I shouldn't bother you
You said this was getting too hard
I know what you mean now

Oh, oh, now what have I done to you
Oh, oh, the times we had
Now my second thoughts never leave my mind

You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home
You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home

Was it really so bad, what you did?
Was it really so good, what we had?

Could I deal with you, could that be my life
Could you be my wife
Would you have me back?
Should you?

Oh, oh, now what did you do to me
Oh, oh, the time I lost
You only get to pick one way for things to go

You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home
You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home
You say you will, but I don't know
From what I've seen, you tend to fold
In times of need, in times of hope
Get off your knees, I'll take you home
