Track Name: Sing About Girls
Now there's a place that I know
when that white dress would glow
and the boys all like to sing about girls

So call me up when you're down
we can roll round the town
'til we ricochet and sing about girls

There's people starving out there
but we got great clothes and hair
so we should probably just sing about girls

'Cause its the end of the week
and if we lie through our teeth
they might pay us just to sing about girls

And if we're lucky / we might get caught
in the radio / so let's take it slow

I got blood on my hands
but I'm a boy in a band
so I can paint it on and sing about girls

So if I'm not to your taste
say it all to my face
and I might write it down and sing about, oh you get the idea...

If we're lucky / we might get caught
in the radio / so let's take it slow
Track Name: Camera
Come one come all
turn yourselves in to the scene
it's a picture perfect catastrophe

We're running on
hot air and wide eyes
it's all smoke and mirrors but entries free

It's so nice to meet you
(they don't know your name)
posters faces changing somehow every nights the same

If you find God
you should bring him here sometime
he might learn a thing or two about the people he keeps churning out

If you find God
could you wish him well for me
I know I said I'd write him back but lately I keep losing track of time

It won't wash off
you can scrub all you like
people tend to see things differently at night
this crowded bar like the barricade between
building Rome and turning out the lights

It's so nice to meet you
(they still don't know your name)
posters faces changing somehow every nights the same

If you find God
you should bring him here sometime
he might learn a thing or two about the people he keeps churning out

If you find God
could you wish him well for me
I know I said I'd write him back but lately I keep losing track of time

(I don't really want to be here)

If you find God
you should bring him here sometime
he might learn a thing or two about the people he keeps churning out

If you find God
could you wish him well for me
I know I said I'd write him back but lately I keep losing track of time
Track Name: Embers
Seems these claustrophobic college beds have turned me inside out
I'm cynical, I'm spiralling, caught in, caught up, caught out.

We're just embers by the roadside tonight, we're going out

You light up as we walk home
sharing drags we're both alone
exit signs all set in stone

We run before we walk
we kiss before we talk
and none of it means anything to me

Oh so clever and oh so free
nine til ten and two til three
It's pretty clear now that's all we'll be
I'm on my way down, I guarantee

You light up as we walk home
sharing drags we're both alone
exit signs all set in stone

We run before we walk
we kiss before we talk
and none of it means anything to me

(And in the morning though I don't know it yet, they will call me and tell me that he's dead. And I will run home in last nights excuse for clothes, wishing it was me instead.)
Track Name: Fifteen Months
Wish I knew how to tell you that it's all been in vain
run down lies from when I met you, seems I'm telling them again
Can't stay here

You're the best I could ask for, it's the best time we've shared
I would have to be an idiot for time to turn my head
but if I'm one thing
darling if I'm one thing

Have no doubt, three weeks from now I'll be listening back to this
thinking 'what the hell are you singing, you don't mean any of this'
but that's the way it works
darling that's the way it works
