Track Name: At Your Leisure
I wrote you a song with a snare and a kick
when we're out in public you demand I perform it
but I hate being looked at like I'm having a seizure
so I taped it for you to enjoy at your leisure.

I wrote you a song, you declared it a hit,
but the cadence was wrong and the beat didn't fit
and I'm half in love but half-tempted to tease ya
so I taped it for you to enjoy at your leisure.
Track Name: Berlin
Where are you now? Berlin, Berlin, Berlin.
In another empty louder house with the water flooding in
and barricaded edges where the painting starts to fade.

Where are you now? Do you fit in
with the other bothered city kids, do you know where you're going?
I'm marking down on paper for when the memory starts to fade,
do you remember all the plans that we made?

Where are you now? Whatever you think's best,
because I can't wait another year to travel thirty hours west.
I'm marking down on paper for when the memory starts to fade,
do you remember all the plans that we made?
Don't get attached, don't get sad,
this is still the best life that we have ever had.
Track Name: Golden Age
Maybe some piece of uninspired rhyme will give a foothold, help them declare my golden age or if I've overstayed my welcome. But I might be so lucky to be the centre of attention and all the negative reviews! What do I care what of myself is in you?

I'd be content to focus my overheated weapons on the media. The best words you've ever written have come from when they're eating you alive and crucified, a murderer, a martyr.

What am I to do? Shelve faith in all but the most objective review? Trade decibels for decimals for dollars in lieu of a job, a career, or anything I'd rather do than get old?
Track Name: Houses With High Ceilings (Acoustic)
We are moving closer every day
to houses with high ceilings where the voices fade away
so by the time our bodies hit the floor
you were half-undressed and out the door.
