Track Name: Talk Talk Talk
We talk talk talk
We waste every day away

I put it all on display

We talk talk talk
It sounds so familiar

It's like we're playing a game

Where it looks like every other day
Every day without you

We talk talk talk
We sleep through the morning

We're never reading the news
It's all we wanted to do
Track Name: Chain Smoker
I can't apologize for the things I don't remember
'Cause I can't stomach the thought that I won't be forgiven
When every night the drive home is like a little adventure

When the streetlights come up, the blinds go down
But where do we go from here?
I'm always catching up and making excuses
I'm in bed in the worst way

I'm always hung up on some minor detail
You'll say I think too much, but I never learned how to get well
When every night the drive home is just a blurry adventure
Track Name: Fake Glasses
You can't hide behind fake glasses anymore than I can pretend we're strangers

It's an inner-alarm. It' someone on your arm. It's a waving, clenched fist shouting, "first do no harm." It's the very last kiss. It's the very first fuck. It's some awful tattoos and the sound of giving up on you to come over...

On you to get over that night out on West Franklin, when I hoped I'd never see you again.
Track Name: Talking Through Movies
I haven't been outside today
It's safe to bet everything is still the same

Now I just rehearse it in my head
Because it's all I could ever think about
And I keep talking through movies
It's starting again...

I lost the flame a few years ago
It's too complicated to try to control
