Track Name: Anywhere But Home
I don't want you, but I might need you
You know I'd rather be anywhere but home

Pity only the fool who makes a fool of himself
Take those feelings put them right up on the shelf
I know you're looking for more than you'll ever bring to my door, but
What would we talk about anyway?
What would we talk about anyway?

'Cause I don't need you, but I might want you
You know I'd rather be anywhere but home
It's a lot to ask of someone like you
But if you ever get a chance, pick up the phone

But if you don't, don't expect any tears
I'll push it off somewhere, far behind my ears
Another mistake I'll always wish that I had made, but
What would we talk about anyway?
What would we talk about anyway?

'Cause I don't need you, but I might want you
You know I'd rather be anywhere but home
It's a lot to ask of someone like you
But if you ever get a chance, pick up the phone

'Cause I don't need you, but I might want you
You know I'd rather be anywhere but home

It's a lot to ask of someone like you
But if you ever get a chance, pick up the phone
Track Name: Flower Song
Apathy, unapologetic sympathy, softly basting misery
That's the way it goes
You're not hearing this
Go waste yourself 'cause I've got clouds to kiss
If your hair is gonna burn, then my heart don't need to yearn, and my ears will find a new mistress

Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
'Cause I don't give a fuck about you

I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby
I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby

Disregard, your name is still the one on the card
I feel you float away, but I digress, you're just a mess
And you're ruining my scenery
So feel some shame
If only for not feeling you're not more to blame
I feel the fangs go in under the skin, I know, you win
But you're drying up as fast as me

Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
'Cause I don't give a fuck about you

I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby
I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby

Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
Don't tell me what you want, what you need, what you think of me
'Cause I don't give a fuck about you

I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby
I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby

I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby
I said no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh
no-oowoah-oowoah-oh baby
Track Name: Around
Take a drink, take another drink
You know she ain't going anywhere without it
Cover me with paper, write my words on my sleeves
Take a needle and a thread, sew me up at the seems
You know we keep moving and there's nowhere to go
So it doesn't really matter if I love you so

So tell me how to lie
Tell me how to live with my eyes closed
'Cause you won't be around to see them bloom
And tell me how to laugh
And tell me something more than goodbye
'Cause you won't be around to see me bloom

Draw a line, give me my next line
Tell me where I can't go so we can stay on task
You know we keep digging, and I'm not surprised
Where we've been tunneling to's where we've been the whole time, and we
Can't keep moving, so just turn it to slow
Sometimes the world's so beautiful I want to die alone

So tell me how to lie
Tell me how to live with my eyes closed
'Cause you won't be around to see them bloom
And tell me how to laugh
And tell me something more than goodbye
'Cause you won't be around to see me bloom

So tell me how to lie
Tell me how to live with my eyes closed
'Cause you won't be around to see them bloom
And tell me how to laugh
And tell me something more than goodbye
'Cause you won't be around to see me bloom
Track Name: Mia
Dig it out of me
Burn it with gasoline
Stick the ashes in a box with a lock ten thousand feet underground
You know I'll wake to see
Another sympathy
For a liar and a murder wrapped around my throat and my tongue

Not everything that falls has to bounce

She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
That girl has gotta stop
whoa, oohwhoa whoa

She's got a thousand eyes
One for every lie
Her teeth puncture holes in my cheeks so I can finally breathe
In an endless sea
She'd still grab hold of me
Turn my blood black and rotten, my heart all but forgotten her, whoa

Not everything that falls has to bounce

She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
That girl has gotta stop
whoa, oohwhoa whoa

She breaks me 'til I'm open
She breaks me 'til I'm open
She breaks me 'til I'm open
She breaks me 'til I'm open

She breaks me 'til I'm open
(Breaks me 'til I'm open)
She breaks me 'til I'm open
(Breaks me 'til I'm open)
She breaks me 'til I'm open
(Breaks me 'til I'm open)
She breaks me 'til I'm open

She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
She breaks me 'til I'm open,
whoa, oohwhoa
That girl has gotta stop
whoa, oohwhoa whoa
Track Name: Never Knows Best
Black powder sunset, you know it's all the same
She tells me of all the world, but not her name
Breathe deeply I'll be that you can feel there's something strange
And after all, she says, I'm to blame, I'm to blame, I'm to blame, I'm to blame, yeah

How are we anything more than we're supposed to be?
'Cause all I see is looking straight back to you
How can we do anything more than lose the pieces too?
How are we anything more than you?

Preach to the choir, you know we'll sing along
But who bears the consequence of what we've done?
Don't hold me late at night and tell me it's alright
It's not that kind of fight, and we both know it
Just hold me up to see the smoke and all the trees melt away
Melt away, oh

How are we anything more than we're supposed to be?
'Cause all I see is looking straight back to you
How can we do anything more than lose the pieces too?
How are we anything more than you?

How are we anything more than we're supposed to be?
'Cause all I see is looking straight back to you
How can we do anything more than lose the pieces too?
How are we anything more than you?
