Reflektion 02:51
standing sideways on my rearview mirror your reflektion's perpendicular with mine we can see but we can't touch like those pictures of the alps but someday i'll be next to you and i'd never ask a question with an answer you don't know but how long before we pack our things and go sixteen different directions and you keep repeating "keep on forward" where the sunlight hits the glass i am stuck and cannot pass or read what i have written backwards
carribean dream a sanctuary for the reality of a post-suburban life try to relax don't overthink things don't be the thing that keeps you up at night
happy marching people marching thru the street happy marching people get a bite to eat happy marching people have a vacant stare happy marching people marching everywhere don't look at me like i'm a monster don't look at me like i'm a freak don't look at me if you can help it i only want to wreak HAVOC happy marching people marching in a line happy marching people taking all their time happy marching people marching in a row happy marching people look how far they go you can't be the one to know how far we have come and far we will go we're happy marching people i can't believe this is gonna happen i can't believe no one's gonna stop i can't believe nothing really matters i can't believe this will happen
you block the fire escape and now there's no way out of here and you tell me it's fine but i know that i'm out of my mind i spend my time on the web but i find no answer i get so fired up but i tell myself it's not enough to be myself i'm not here anymore now i'm feeling the pages near the end why'd you have to pretend to be my friend i thought things would turn out better what do i know
Look at them walking down the street hand in hand They stop to kiss any time they can Enjoying all of the stares From fools who keep tryin’ not to care Like I did until I met you Oh I hate people like us I hate people like us Yesterday I’d sit at my cafe Nose in book to block my eyes From beneath the lamplight outside Never knowing I’d be the man holding her Not the one who’s jealous It’s like those movies on TV late at night Two lovers colorized from the black and white The star has big brown eyes and soft pale skin But I shake my head this could never happen Look at us in this picture from that booth in the mall You wear my shirt, I’ve got your glasses Almost enjoying their stares But I hope the me I used to be never finds this photo
tomorrow may come and i may still be here but chances are that you'll be gone you may collapse and try to break my fingers but chances are i'll still have one and stick it in your face here is not the place the time is now so waste it count on the sun for it's the only way that we can be so sure there's any light try to relax you tend to overthink things and now you're always up at night well what am i to do pretend i still love you it isn't fair to do that
The Ride 02:03
i thought i had enough to get me by but there you appear looking past my eyes and for the first time i have to try i take back every word i haven't said i take another step and i break my leg i'm flat on my face and i'm begging you please keep dragging me along so this is the ride i just wish that i could have more fun if this is the ride something says that you're what i'm counting on am i worth counting on
Pyrotechnics 03:00
i'm watching as you set the world on fire and as you pour on gasoline it keeps on getting higher was it something that i said i didn't mean to make you so upset if i could only have a time machine so i could tell you i love you i didn't count on you disappearing so well you remind me of a fern but instead of growing you just watch the barnhouse burn you must be losing your mind cause pyrotechnics keep on taking up your time i'm pretty sure it wasn't me but if it was can i say i'm sorry before my eyes you're setting fire to the rain and though it's physically impossible i'm trynna feel your pain
La La La 02:48
