Track Name: the plan is there is no plan
i'm not a man, barely a thought
i'm on your side, but not for too long
you're 23, you think it's yours
i built this world to tell you that you're wrong

it's not worth saving, it's not worth saving now
i'm not worth saving, it's not worth saving now
we're not worth saving, it's not worth saving now
it's not worth saving, it's not worth saving now

you hit that age, when you learn
that the pilot is on his first flight
then you turn, he looks at you
and screams, we're going down!

this boy's adjusted, and he's starting to fit in
i'm overwhelmed and I am trying to escape
where do we go from here?
where do we go now, and where do we go now?
Track Name: black black snow
i am in love again, with a new idea of mine
i'm gonna make it real, i'm gonna make it, make it
it's an army of mechanical bugs that can eat our trash and turn it to gas
and it's gone, and it's gone. out of site. out of mind

i'm gonna build it, gonna build it yea.

every good story needs a hero
every good hero needs a villain
i want to be your hero
won't you please (please please) be my villain?

it is so pretty now, when it snows like this
the color matches the road, i love that black black snow
let's reverse the last two hundred years of revolution with my brand new industry
no need to change. no need to worry. we'll build it, and it'll fix it.

we'll build it, and it'll fix it.
Track Name: until death do us party
let's all play in the back yard
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
let's go chase the fireflies
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll give them their own names
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll stay out past the sunlight

meet me, and play with me.
stay out with me, and float with me.

let's all go skate tonight
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll pretend that we're city kids
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
and make new friends with our parking lot tricks
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll stay lit with the street lights

meet me, and play with me.
stay out with me, and float with me.

i'd like to say every drink and every party
i'd like to say every friend and every more than
but what will it go to show? maybe it will go to show
i'd like to think that time spent is well spent
i'd like to think that hanging out is hanging in
but what will it go to show? maybe it will go to show
the say necessity is the mother of invention
i think my aimlessness is the mother of this narcissist
but what will it go to show? who cares what it will go to show?
it's not an answer it's just self indulgence
it's your question, and i'm done being self conscious
but what will it go to show? who cares what it will go to show?

let's all go to the bar tonight
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll drink in this circle all night
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll play songs, and play fight
we're gonna make it all out, we're gonna make it out
we'll stay out until the sun light

meet me, and play with me.
stay out/young with me, and float with me.
Track Name: what the world needs now
what the world needs now is what the world needs now
what the worlds needs now is one more band
so check check check all your references
check check your head and your references
the truth is that anyone could do it, and most likely they'd do it better than you
because no one gets your q and not u reference, and frankly no one cares
there's barely a fifteen year old around that can't play a power chord
and most of them could play sweet child o mine way better than you ever could
dan smith has done his job. the audience here is just being polite
as they try not to snicker at the irony of your crippled microphone stand
while you fumble for uncomfortable banter
so check check check all your references
check check your head and your references
all your friends are so used to this sound
how you been asking around
they want to hang around?
you wanna hang around?
and all your friends are so tired of your sound
you've been complaining about
how no one's hanging about
you've been beggin them out, but no one's hanging about
i met a man in the back of a bar
and he was screaming about that it was just me in the crowd
i was the only crowd, it was me in the crowd
and he was screaming...
do you care, do you care what you're singing about?
do they care, do they care when they're dancing about?
do you care, do you care what you're screaming about?
do they care, do they care when they're thrashing about?
what the world needs now
Track Name: machine, who me?
there's something in the distance, it's much too bright to see, but still i feel it's power
no mortal could mistake it, for an ordinary symbol, it must mean that i'm special
i can feel it overtake me, i'm more than just a man, separate me from the masses
act on every impulse, oh don't you dare provoke me, i'm just here to perfect you

rebuild an institution up from the ground
you can join in the solution to knock it down

no more am i conflicted, they've told me right from wrong, trust in our new vision
there's no such thing as color, the world is black and white, just like our machine
and if you have a question, it's taken as a threat, we don't enjoy your thinking
we'll drag you in, and lock you up, and push you down, and drown you out, we're just here to perfect you

rebuild an institution up from the ground
you can join in the solution to knock it down
Track Name: you're a danger
i'm not certain that you can see it, i'm just certain that it is there
it's moving just a bit everyday, and it's creeping, and it's creeping

every slip is just a bit more damage
and every break is just a bit more damage
and every fix is just a bit more damage
and every day is just a bit more damage

now when it all blurs together, what's gonna be the fix then?
who decides that you're not fit? when will they say that you're a danger?

every slip is just a bit more damage
and every break is just a bit more damage
and every fix is just a bit more damage
and every day is just a bit more damage
a bit more now.

they're gonna feed us to the wolves.
Track Name: this drink's familiar
my stomach turns it says i'm wrong again
my bed is empty it says this year's the year
i make my drink, it says i'm not your friend
it tastes familiar, it's soap and dead skin

my water's dirty, i want to send it back
she tells me clearly this is my last chance
she looks so tired i think it must be me
it's so familiar, it's soap and dead skin

well here we go, i'm on stage again
it's like the last, and i'm broken again
well here we go, a new stage again
it's like the last, and i'm broken again

the future's clear, it looks the same as the past
it's indecision and abandoned plans
but i'm so tired, i think it must be me
this day's familiar, it's soap and dead skin

well here we go, i'm on stage again
it's like the last, and i'm broken again
well here we go, a new stage again
it's like the last, and i'm broken again
Track Name: the silence is deafening
i can hear myself, hear myself start to think
don't concentrate, don't panic, don't panic, don't panic, panic!
silence is such a racket in my head
silence is just a racket in my head
can i have an inch, before i lose it?
i'm so helpless, helpless, helpless, losing control
silence is such a racket in my head
silence is just a racket in my head
i am surrounded by these strangers
i need a line i need a hand i need a friend i need a drink i need a smoke
i need help to escape
silence is such a racket in my head
silence is just a racket in my head
Track Name: phillip gets divorced
it's not a giant stretch to think that everyone hides their evil thoughts
it's not a huge leap to think that i could be planning a suicide sit in, yea
oh yea
i wouldn't be all that shocked if i found out that you've been learning some new tricks
i wouldn't be all that shocked if i found out that you've been reading the anarchists cookbook
oh yea
it wouldn't send me into a panic if i found out that you've been making new friends
i wouldn't lose my cool or get too manic if i found out that you've been hanging with transsexuals
what's wrong with that?
oh yea
so keep your search and frisk away from me
you can't save us from society
so keep your guns and cuffs the hell away from me
we'll never be safe, so just let us be
Track Name: this land is not your land
i want my own, i want my own, i want my own place
where i can be, i can be, i i can be all alone
i wanna hide, i wanna hide, i wanna hideaway
from the man, from the man who tells me how to be

and then the christians came, and they dropped their stakes
and now you think that life, you think that life's a sin

look around, look around and what do you see?
all the buildings, yea these buildings here in the street
they say i gotta, say i gotta gotta pay their rent
i gotta work for them, i gotta work for them

and then the christians came, and they dropped their stakes
and now you think that life, you think that life's a sin

i'm just another, just another, just another investment
here to pay, here to pay, here to pay for their ways
i'm just another, just another, just another acquisition
it's their land, it's their land, it's their land i'm on
