Track Name: Everything is Wonderful
No you're not wrong I
cannot justify
Simpler to forget
Oh no

Is it all the same?
Who is to be blamed?
Exercises in regret

Is it fair to say that something's wrong here?
Is it time we turn to face our own fear?

Please don't pretend
(Don't pretend)
That everything is wonderful
When we both know it's obviously
Spiraling out of control

Words have been said now
Can't remember how
Anyway, what for?
Oh no

Love and hate are blurred
Truth and lies obscured
Either way I know I'm sure

Is it fair to say that something's wrong here?
Is it time we turn to face our own fear?

Please don't pretend
(Don't pretend)
That everything is wonderful
When we both know it's obviously
Spiraling out of control

And If you're wondering why turn your blind eye away
I can't pretend it's wonderful for you, oh no.
Not another day

Please don't pretend
(Don't pretend)
That everything is wonderful
When we both know it's obviously
Spiraling out of control

And If you're wondering why turn your blind eye away
I can't pretend it's wonderful for you, oh no.
Not another day

Please don't pretend
(Don't pretend)
That everything is wonderful
When we both know it's obviously
Spiraling out of control

And If you're wondering why turn your blind eye away
I can't pretend it's wonderful for you, oh no.
Not another day
Track Name: Say Say
Say say you have an opinion
Cause I feel like you have built a wall
I need to know how you're feeling
I do my part and get nothing at all.

I give a little heart
I give a little soul
I give a little patience
I give it some control

But nothing ever sticks
The same thing every time
Are we still going forward,
Or am I stuck behind?

Say say you will or you won't but please just say
What's on your mind cause it can't go on this way.

I really don't want to argue
I know sometimes I can be too much
I feel like sometimes you hate me
But then again, I'm of touch

I give a little heart
I give a little soul
I give a little patience
I give it some control

But nothing ever sticks
The same thing every time
Are we still going forward,
Or am I stuck behind?

Say say you will or you won't but please just say
What's on your mind cause it can't go on this way.
Track Name: Deny
Fall
apart
I don't even have the strength to take control
Don't know where
to start
and it's getting to the point that it's unbearable

I don't have any reason
to tell you what I have to say
Enough
Let it be the way it is, oh

And let's lie
Deny
Fake a smile to hide the truth
Don't let them see us turn to cry

And just try
To hide
Let the whole world keep on turning
Put it all behind

Take
me now
If we tell ourselves it's worth it
We can try and work it out

Pretend
And offend
Either way you and I
will be in pieces in the end

I don't have any reason
to tell you what I have to say
Enough
Let it be the way it is, oh

And let's lie
Deny
Fake a smile to hide the truth
Don't let them see us turn to cry

And just try
To hide
Let the whole world keep on turning
Put it all behind

And let's lie
Deny
Fake a smile to hide the truth
Don't let them see us turn to cry

And just try
To hide
Let the whole world keep on turning
Put it all behind
Track Name: Something About Fashion
Il faut que vous marchez.
Qu'est-ce que vous voulez porter?
What's the point if it doesn't pay?
La vie est à acheter.

Cashmere and satin in Paris, Manhattan
London enamored, the money and glamour
Everyone staring, because we're all wearing
Westwood Prada Balenciaga
Valentino Dolce Gabbana

Walk and turn love, you don't care
Make believe there's something there
It's expensive, not for us
What's the price of glamourous?

There's something about fashion
Isn't it fabulous?

C'est très chic.
Vous avez l'air magnifique.
You've got style but your mind is weak
And that's exactly what we seek

Taffeta, satin in Paris, Manhattan
London is calling, the money keeps falling
Everyone impressed, because we are all dressed in
Westwood Prada Balenciaga
Valentino Dolce Gabbana

Walk and turn love, you don't care
Make believe there's something there
It's expensive, not for us
What's the price of glamourous?

There's just something about fashion
It's absolutely marvelous!

Voulez-vous acheter?
Voulez-vous vous habiller?
Commencer à marcher.
Est-ce ce que vous voulez?

Track Name: Rescue You
Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
Is this what you've always wanted?
Now your hands are tied.

I hope you know you got yourself in this mess
You're on your own now so good luck and God bless
And last but not least might I add without further ado
No one's gonna rescue you.

I try to explain
I try to explain

I try to explain
I try to explain
I try to explain

And I hear
An excuse
And a lie
It's no use
And I try
To explain
And you won't
Entertain

Anything
That I say
Throw it out
That's okay
But what else
Can I bring
If it all
means nothing

I hope you know you got yourself in this mess
You're on your own now so good luck and God bless
And last but not least might I add without further ado
No one's gonna rescue you.

I try to explain
I try to explain

I try to explain
I try to explain
I try to explain

I try to explain
You drive me insane
You hold on to nothing
It's starting to drain me

And at this point,
There's nothing else that I can do
And no one's gonna rescue you.

Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
Is this what you've always wanted?

Track Name: Fun
You'll have to forgive me, I've forgotten your name
I may have had too much tonight and you all look the same

Well
This is fun
Another distraction
A hit and run

You're oh so boring
But I'm having fun
And I'll be going
When the night is done
But this is fun

You're unbecoming, dull, and shallow but it's not about you
Maybe you're really complex deep down inside, but I don't have a clue

Well
This is fun
Another distraction
A hit and run

You're oh so boring
But I'm having fun
And I'll be going
When the night is done
But this is fun

Is this fun?

Is this fun?

Is this fun?

Is this fun?

Well
This is fun
Another distraction
A hit and run

You're oh so boring
But I'm having fun
And I'll be going
When the night is done
But this is fun

Well

Another distraction
A hit and run

You're oh so boring
But I'm having fun
And I'll be going
When the night is done
But this is fun
Track Name: Transparent
Say what you will
She knows you're lying
You try to cover up but
They hear you crying

But they don't matter
These things that they say
If you just forget it it will all go away
Tell yourself its working every day

You put up a front
Keep up an appearance
You had a good story
But it's losing coherence
Cause you've got a secret
It's becoming apparent
Try to keep it down low but
In the end you're transparent

The other guys know
You're so insecure
You think they might question
But they know for sure

Just play it all off
These things that they say
If you just ignore it it will all go away
Tell yourself the same thing every day

You put up a front
Keep up an appearance
You had a good story
But it's losing coherence
Cause you've got a secret
It's becoming apparent
Try to keep it down low but
In the end you're transparent

Keep up an appearance
You're losing coherence
It's becoming apparent
And you're transparent

You put up a front
Keep up an appearance
You had a good story
But it's losing coherence
Cause you've got a secret
It's becoming apparent
Try to keep it down low but
In the end you're transparent

You put up a front
Keep up an appearance
You had a good story
But it's losing coherence
Cause you've got a secret
It's becoming apparent
Try to keep it down low but
In the end you're transparent
Track Name: All The Same
How the years, they fly
How the time passes by
What's it been? Three years?
How are you? How's your life?

Hope you're doing well
As far as I can tell
Hope you'll be around
If you are, give a yell

I know I have no right to ask you
To hear me out or give me the time of day

But you're always in the back of my mind
So for right now, can I just say

You have every right to berate me
And I understand if you hate me
But I'd give up all I have
Just to see your face again

If I could I would redo it
And I understand if I blew it
And I'm sure that you've moved on
But I miss you all the same

Youthful dumb mistakes
And your heart, it breaks
What's it been? Three years?
Is that how long it takes?

I don't why I did
I was just a stupid kid
I've grown up, I'm not the same
Won't hurt you now, god forbid

I know I have no right to ask you
To take me back or even look my way

But you're always in the back of my mind
So for right now, can I just say

You have every right to berate me
And I understand if you hate me
But I'd give up all I have
Just to see your face again

If I could I would redo it
And I understand if I blew it
And I'm sure that you've moved on
But I miss you all the same

And if you think you'll be around
Well you know where I'll be found
If to even say hello
If to even tell me no

No more running, no more lies
How can I apologize?
Close my eyes, you're all I see
Cause you're always there to me

I don't mean to bother you
Or bring you some old news
Or dwell in my old shame
But I miss you all the same

Yeah I miss you all the same

You have every right to berate me
And I understand if you hate me
But I'd give up all I have
Just to see your face again

If I could I would redo it
And I understand if I blew it
And I'm sure that you've moved on
But I miss you all the same

And I never meant to lose you
I compare everyone to you
And they never measure up
Can't hold a candle to your flame

Wish I'd got it right the first time
And I know the blame is all mine
It's okay if you've moved on
But I miss you all the same

You have every right to berate me
And I understand if you hate me
But I'd give up all I have
Just to see your face again

If I could I would redo it
And I understand if I blew it
And I'm sure that you've moved on
But I miss you all the same
Track Name: Council House King
Some wasted time
Watching cars go down the line
You hide your face
This town is not a friendly place

And the days are long, and the nights are cold
And this cheap routine is getting kind of old
And the days are long, and the nights are cold
So cold

Council house king, don't you lose your hold
All your tarnished brass will turn to gold
Don't lose it now
You won't lose it now
Don't lose it now
You won't lose it now

And the morning screams
It wakes you from your hopeful dreams
On your dead end street
Of power lines and cracked concrete

And the days are long, and the nights are cold
And this cheap routine is getting kind of old
And your mind's made up, you will not be sold
Be sold

Council house king, don't you lose your hold
All your tarnished brass will turn to gold
Council house king, you will not be cold
Never will you let yourself be sold
Don't lose it now
You won't lose it now
Don't you lose it now
You can't lose it now

And the days are long
And the nights go on and on
You've lost your faith in god above
To grey skies that you've come to love and now

What have you come to expect?
As you pull on your last cigarette well
Council house king I say bless your soul

You'll be just fine now

Council house king, don't you lose your hold
All your tarnished brass will turn to gold
Council house king, you will not be cold
Never will you let yourself be sold
Don't lose it now (you'll be just fine now)
You won't lose it now (you'll be just fine now)
Don't you lose it now (you'll be just fine now)
You can't lose it now (you'll be just fine now)
