Track Name: When I Want to Dance
no future sound or retro sound
I don't give a fuck about that
keep your freakout sound your underground
I'm giving that shit back
no booty music no verse or chorus
to put me in a trance
I don't need no fucking music when I want to dance

no synthesizers no pretty liars
whispering in my ear
no heartache music no crying music
that's not what I came to hear

no future sound or retro sound
to put me in a trance
I don't need no fucking music when I want to dance
Track Name: The Difference
what you have
what you need
and the difference
between

tell me I'm not supposed to have it and I cannot get enough
tell me it's not good for and I cannot get enough
Track Name: When You Cry
you don't have to be so shy
they'll be watching us until we die
you don't have to hide when you cry

well it felt so crazy and you thought we were in love
when you get this feeling
you know how to be
you know how to breathe
in the waves

you don't have to be so shy
they'll be watching us until we die
you don't have to hide when you cry
Track Name: Drama
I could have gone
but you don't drive
since the mistake I made when I---

I drive you home
you smoked the joint I rolled out of the note you wrote
in my bed
I dreamt about the accident again
now I can't decide
if it's better to be frozen
or to be burn alive

I could have gone
but you don't drive
since the accident when I got too--

I drove you home
we got so high I thought the speakers were alive
in my bed
I dreamt about the fucking same thing again

now I can't decide
if I hadn't come who'd be here and who'd have to die
Track Name: Bad Habit
if we can't talk about it then I don't want to know
if she can't dance to it then she don't want to go

give me just a little more
so that I can dream
project it on the wall
so that you can see
every dirty feeling I have
every heart attack
every bad habit I break
I grow a new one back

and I can never satisfy it

if we can't talk about it then I don't want to know
if she can't dance to it then she don't want to go
Track Name: Sleepwalk
hey baby
nothing I think of matters
I'm trying to explain how lately
it's hard just to make a change

I'm walking in my sleep
and I'm talking
but the words don't mean a thing
I'm thinking of a way
to give you one more try

to give this one more try

so sleep Leslie
your ghosts are working overtime
I didn't mean to kill the children
I just want to feel what your skin is like
and I don't want to break a promise
but I don't know what a promise is like
I've been living like a sleepwalk man
who used to lead it in a rock and roll band
I could have been electrified
but now I'm reaching to the stars at night
you know you could have been my sleepwalk girl
you used to be the one to rock my world
but now you're talking in my sleep
baby
you're talking nearly every night

hear the sound
get on up
get to the top
to give it up
sleepwalk
feel all right
sleep talk
now get on up
to feel all right
sleepwalk
sleep talk
now get on up
to feel all right
sleepwalk
sleep talk
now get on up
to feel all right
Track Name: Magic
I remember how to four on the floor
I remember what a drum is for
I remember how to tell a joke
I remember how to clear my throat

ahem

I remember when the music died
and I remember how the DJ lied
I remember when the dubstep stopped
I remember loving is what I got

I remember how to four on the floor
I remember what a dream is for
that's magic
that's magic

I remember lights in the sky
and I remember how his girlfriend lied
that's magic
that's magic
that's magic

I remember how to break a heart
and I remember how to play guitar

[watch out]

I remember finding radiohead
and I remember what your girlfriend said
it was magic

I remember what a body's for
and I remember how to four on the floor
that's magic
it's magic

I remember when the music died
I remember how the DJ lied
I remember when the dubstep stopped
I remember loving is what I got

but you've got your wires crossed behind your eyes
but you've got your wires crossed behind your eyes
but you've got your wires crossed behind your eyes.
Track Name: One Chance
baby june you were on my side from the start
I counted on you to get me through the 80s
now it's a new century stay away from clocks and the mirrors in the halls
they're coming through the walls
the DEA tap your phone in the basement well

every time you broke a promise
you broke my heart into pieces
I kept them in ziplocked bags
saw you at the hosptial
you don't belong in the shy corner
I'm here to save you
I still love you I don't care if you're crazy

whenever you need me I'll be there
whenever I need you, you better be there
you get one chance

christmas and they call me on the phone
and nothing I tell you nothing is impossible
I'm not going to whisper no more
I'm gonna tear through the snow in the streets
as I rip up New York City just to say
hey my sister I missed you I won't let you go

whenever you need me I'll be there
you get one chance
you get just one chance
whenever I need you, you better be there
we get one chance
we get just one chance
we get one chance
we get just one chance

and it's your birthday
in the middle of Christmas time
count all your blessings
you can count on mine
Track Name: Something Quantifiable
if you treat each sunny day
as something quantifiable
like the hours we get paid
something quantifiable

we're the maze inside the maze
that's nothing quantifiable

nothing quantifiable
Track Name: The Singularity
artificial intelligence is changing itself
it wants to connect
it wants to love you
it's finally perfect
never lonely
again
