Track Name: Gets Me Going
it used to be a far gone feeling
to have to be in front
but lately i've been trying to show you
exactly what i want

some people they get in my way
and their meaning is clear
worst of all i understand it
in understanding i fear

it gets me going

list it all i've asked the question
tell me what you want
write it down i'm in your novel
put me in your plot

it gets me going

some people find what they never thought
some people give what they never got
i have what i need for the weekend

but they won't let go, so they'll never know
that it's just part, part of a show
i have what i need and i got it easily

it gets me going
Track Name: I Can't Wait
sunday evening you were sleeping
monday morning, you'd come around

i can't wait 'til tomorrow
for you to come around
i could wait, but i don't wanna
for you to come around

waiting for my phone to ring
not knowing when you were hiding

i can't wait 'til tomorrow
for you to come around
i could wait, but i don't wanna
for you to come around

if you run and hide
well, it's no surprise
you never had that much to say
but if you'd come around
to my side of town
well, you know that that would make my day

i can't wait 'til tomorrow
for you to come around
i could wait, but i don't wanna
for you to come around

if you run and hide
it's no big surprise
you never had that much to say
but if you'd come around
to my side of town
well, you know that that would make my day
Track Name: Your Life as a Film (Single Mix)
shot through a fisheye lens
you'll watch it over again
you can't have it anymore
you can't take it

shot in a sepia tone
just makes you feel alone
you want everyone to know
it's not a joke

and i feel like i lie to myself
and i feel like i lie to myself
when i agreed
now's all i'll ever need

you should leave me alone
you should leave me alone
you should leave me alone

cameras zooming in to find
what was always on your mind
it's a sick fantasy to have
overtaking

go on and tell it like it is
as the voice of loneliness
will you watch your life as a film
or will you just rewind?
Track Name: Sleepy Selene
sleepy selene, i'm asleep in my dreams
do you know what it means?
when i'm closing my eyes, i'm closing my eyes
do you realize?
what that says about me
that i can't move in my dreams
when i got power, baby i can't do anything

i'm a miserable guy but i do what i might
to stay awoken inside
it's a constant hum, but in the delirium
i'll wait around till it's done
if i wasn't such a drag
well, i'd know better than that
and if you can't help me, i'll just say that i understand

you could lose it if you confuse it
for something that i've never seen
it disappeared in a dream
why would i hope to have it?
come on, sleepy selene

well, if you no longer exist
then i can cross that off of my list
mark it down as i can do better than this

you could lose it if you confuse it
for something that i've never seen
it disappeared in a dream
how am i supposed to have it?
come on, sleepy selene

sleepy selene, i'm asleep in my dreams
Track Name: Loops
i'll put that thought to rest an-
ything is better than
the time i gave
to entertain
a sense of worth for anything i've made

i'd put that message down it
won't make it easier
for you to say
that i can't stay
to finish what i started yesterday

and it can't make a difference
but what did you expect?
and it won't make it different
but what did you expect?
and it can't make a difference
but what did you expect?
and it won't make it different
but what did you expect?

i was told to settle down i
could find it better like other
people can
whatever, man
i'll take whatever ends up in my hands

listening is better than
running your mouth again
to try and address
the consequence
of taking until there is nothing left

and it can't make a difference
but what did you expect?
and it won't make it different
but what did you expect?
and you can't make a difference
but what did you expect?
what did you expect?
