LYRICS

1. LOVELY HANNA

listen lovely hanna
thanks for sticking around
i love just enough to be loved
as you probably know by now

my friends tell me
that your friends told you
im an impossible guy

really lovely hanna
thanks for all youve done
you know that im not the talking type
id rather put it in a song

well there goes the neighbourhood
all of our neighbours
waving goodbye

theyre helping us carry
theyre helping us carry
the load thats been waiting
to explode in our faces

and its my fault
for letting it come this far

what if im wrong what if youre wrong
and does it really matter
were both gonna be alone tonight
right?
oh my god what have I done
oh my god what have I done

goodbye lovely hannah
ill call you when im done
its time to lower the curtain
behind us as we drift apart

well there goes the neighbourhood
all of our neighbours
waving goodbye
theyre helping us carry
they’re helping us carry
the load thats been waiting
to explode in our faces
and its my fault
for letting it come this far

2. I WISH THIS WAS ABOUT YOU

the promise of a child
in its mothers arms
is worth more to me
than a thousand of yours

but still you have a way with me
like a bird of prey
youll always have your way with me
wont you my dear
whats wrong
oh dear
are you having no fun

I wish this was about you
but im sad to say
that i cant even remember
the lies on your face

but still you have that way with me
like a fake bouquet
youll always have that way with me
wont you my dear

3. DARK HEART

fragile and fickle
worn out bruised and crippled
designed by your favorite lie

you ask for forgiveness
for a way to mend the bridges
surrounded by ashes of laughter

dont you see
it’s okay to be
somewhat out of place
as long as youre
kind kind kind of kind to your

dark heart

who could have imagined
the ease with which it passes
the color returns to your face

take your fear of the future
to strip the past of its sutures
arise arrive alive

dont you see
it’s okay to be
somewhat out of place
as long as youre
kind kind kind of kind to your

dark heart

4. PURPLE BLACK AND BLUE

i took apart a fragment of my mind
and held it underneath
a cold white light

and it wont hurt itll just sting
dont move keep still

every crack every cut memorized
that ones yours and that ones mine
i can tell by their size

purple black and blueeee
landcapes painted by you

that may be the darkest sky ive ever seen
that may be the loneliest mountain ill ever meet

cause im no fool
cause im no fool

i look around the wasteland theres still time
to save this place and help it turn
back into my

favorite hideout
secret safehouse

it may turn out to have been
another dream
it may turn out that i needed
medicine

cause im no fool
im no fool

5. NUT

lately ive been walking
ive been talking
to myself
boring im kind of boring
now i see why
im by myself

maybe im a nut
clearly im a nut
it dont really mean nothing
surely im a nut
just another nut
it dont really mean nothing

pity my selfpity
makes me want to
kill myself
take it i cant take it
maybe someone
will instead

and maybe hell go nuts
loves to be a nut
it dont really mean nothing
surely hell turn nuts
just another nut
it dont really mean nothing

who then should do the talking
if im all by myself
who then should do the talking
if im all by myself

stranger im a stranger
in my own mind
by myself
walking ill just keep walking
until i find myself a friend

who thinks that im a nut
likes me as a nut
it might just mean something
loves me as a nut
just another nut
it might just mean something

6. JIM VERSUS JANE

it stops here jane it aint nothing new
its no use jane im telling you
let it go let it go

its just a scar jane it aint nothing new
just a scratch jane im telling you
let it go let it go

it’s okay jane he aint round no more
just relax jane get off the floor
stand up straight stand up straight

best of luck jane youre on your own
dont come crawling back to his door
get away jane leave that phone alone
find a new jim wholl hurt you even more
its okay its okay

7. THE MADNESS

the madness took over
my hands my eyes my moments
every breath along the way
got filled with spite and smelled like death
it dragged me home and into bed
i promise, tomorrow, ill be a different man

so i left it up to the ancients
cause ive used up all the favors
with every friend along the way
i got them drunk filled their heads
with words i borrowed from strangers
and worn out metaphores

teach me how to breathe
in the air i wont need
anyway
stay with me till the end

streets filled with terror
eyes filled with venom
all the kids cry and weep
is it real or could it be
the madness playing tricks on me
suicidal yawns out of courtesy

the burning sensation of lonely cause
ten crooked fingers but I just need one
the endless beginning of strangers in love

teach me how to leave
all the things i wont need
anyway
stay with me till the end

8. EGOMANIAC

slowly im gaining speed
would you please take over the wheel
it needs to stop i need to kneel

god if you can hear me
i think i kind of had enough
god can you hear me at all
god you used to tell me
that i was your favorite one

yeah im okay go lets go
i know of a place down the road
where they serve bread wine and more
where they sing psalms songs and more

and where we can dance
all night long

so god if youre listening
i think you underestimate
god all the work that ive done
god you used to tell me
that i could do no wrong

where followers swear and curse
where the believers pray till it hurts
where all the sin gets drowned in its thirst
where your name gets blessed by the cursed

so god you egomaniac
your kingdoms locked its gates are shut
lets tear those pearly gates down
god wont you come and join the living
and forget about dying for now

9. HARD TO HANDLE

all my colours seem to fade into a shade of gray
i guess i guess
thats the long term effect of not having any common sense
i guess
happy endings are just a myth something to help deal with it
i guess i guess

its so obvious
easy to see
hard to handle
that part of me

my luck has changed over time it got sick of being called mine
i guess i guess
im a lazy lion in its cage barred from the dying day
i guess i guess
ive never prayed for whats the use of a god whos so simply fooled
i guess

so oblivious
easily missed
hard to handle
how blind ive been

so obnoxious
easy to hit
hard to forget
hard to handle it

i guess i guess
