Track Name: See Me Unaware
See me unaware
Under false impressions
Missing all the markers
Secure in my surroundings
Oblivious to sure signs
Flashing in the rearview
Denying all the telltale
Signs of your frustration

Under anesthesia
Not so local anymore
Under heavy sedation
And looking for more
See me unaware

Of all of my infractions
Tallied in your ledger
Totaled up so neatly
Adding up to mountains
Stacks of imperfections
Reaching to the ceiling
Then crashing all around us

Under anesthesia
Not so local anymore
Under heavy sedation
And looking for more

See me unaware
Track Name: The Weather
You talk about the weather
As if you could contain it
As if you could control it
As if you had a clue
But I hate to tell you
How your city’s sinking
How your fields are barren
You won’t be safe for long

If you don’t like the weather
Better not raise your blinds

You talk about the weather
As if you could deny it
As if you had the answers
As if you knew the truth
But I hate to tell you
How your city’s drowning
How your fields are burning
You won’t be safe for long

If you don’t like the weather
Better not raise your blinds

You talk about the weather
(You talk about the weather)
While your city’s sinking
(You talk about the weather)
You talk about the weather
(You talk about the weather)
You won’t be safe for long
Track Name: It's Nothing
The call comes late
My stomach sinks
The tremor tells me you’ve been crying
You dance around
The basic facts
There’s no easy way to say you’re dying

You think
You’re not supposed to show you’re frightened
You must be brave
I know
You’re only thinking of the children
But how could you say
It’s nothing?

Your life breaks down
Into routine
It’s the only way that you can keep control
You focus on
Each tiny piece
It’s easier than dwelling on the whole

You think
You’re not supposed to show you’re frightened
You must be brave
I know
You’re only thinking of the children
But how could you say
It’s nothing?

You think
You’re not supposed to show you’re frightened
You must be brave
I know
You’re only thinking of the children
But how could you say
It’s nothing?

It’s nothing
Track Name: Terribly Happy
Hanging on the margins of the group
Grimace dominates your lovely face
Body language screams
Anywhere but here
Send me subtle signs that we're the same
Happier in smaller groups of friends
Drowning in the crowd
Awkward and alone

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic

Circling the room for half an hour
Feigning studied interest in the art
Departure on my mind
Recharge way past due
I can see you edging towards the door
Send me up a flare if we’re the same
Lonely in the crowd
Happier at home

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic

I'm not happy
You're not happy
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy
You're not happy
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy
I'm not happy (Surrounding me)
You're not happy (Surrounding you)
Let's elope
Start an unhappy family
I'm not happy (Surrounding me)
You're not happy (Surrounding you)
Pool our meds
Start our own little pharmacy

We can be as wretched as we please
We can plumb the depths of our despair
No one there to tell us how to feel
No one there to tell us when to smile
We can find a sorry little house
You and I can paint it black or blue
Shutter all the windows, hide inside
Barricade the doors--we'll be ecstatic
Track Name: Short and Sour
If silence
Were golden
You'd always
Be broke
This isn't
The first time
You clearly
Misspoke

You leave a bad taste
Let's keep this short and sour

If silence
Were golden
You couldn't
Pay rent
Now don't you
Backpedal
We know what
You meant

You leave a bad taste
Let's keep this short and sour

Short and
(Short and)
Sour
Short and
(Short and)
Sour
Let's keep this short and sour
