weight in your mind .. (you) understand why the people can't fly and live in the sky birds they don't know .. (the) places you go in rubber and metal; and what is the glass? .. take a walk in my head .. (i) think you will understand ... (a)llow me to simplify things, but please dont be fooled by the rose-coloured glasses and you cant forever predict the weather. i choose to be happy for later. drink in your hand .. (you) swallow it whole, thus filling a hole that never relents throw out your plans .. (and) damn it to hell, you say "might as well smile at the abyss"

(im the) king of hawaiian shirts, let me show the works of the summer laidback tshirt king of the floral print, can i have a mint when you smell the undertones and read from the palest face past the way i dis- play, see the inner back and forth and read from the colors more than the fabric im feeling just a little anxious now .. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am .. taking the day-to-day until when i reset king of hawaiian shirts, drinking coco- nuts, they're not really coconuts; the king of parrot print, wont you take a hint that the birds aint flying high and look at the setting sun, feeling number one, all because the day is ending wake when it rise again, and you still re- gret all the things you didnt do, oh no .. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am .. taking the day-to-day until when i reset [solo] .. taking the day-to-day i dont know who i am .. taking the day-to-day until when i reset king of hawaiian shirts, that's how it works, that's how it works, yes i'm the king of hawaiian shirts, that's how it works, that's how it works.

if im understanding you right you missed the very last flight and you don't know where to go you came back through the tsa they said it would be ok but we dont trust a word they say .. let's take a cab back into town ... i know the sky is brown ... but what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot if im understanding you right you can't sleep much in the night coz the stars are just a shame you came back with the morning sun and knew we needed to run but we dont trust the road we take .. let's make a pact to turn around ... all the things that make us frown ... coz what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot (solo) .. let's make a pact to turn around ... all the things that make us frown ... coz what else can we do oh i just dont know quite how to be . when the world is ending oh i just dont know, lord knows i'll try . but the world is ending now, and all the legacies you left were all for naught and they recalled the last thing you forgot

washing your tires with paint marking on the road everywhere you go .., if you cant help yourself, you cant help me washing your hands without soap leaving germs on the stove when you burn your hand .., if you cant help yourself, you cant help me running in circles helping gnomes get off the lawn running in circles turning all of the lights on eating the cake in the fridge; there's no cake in the fridge; there's not even a fridge .., if you cant help yourself you cant help me going to school in your shorts when its thirty de- grees; you dont even have knees .., if you cant help yourself you cant help me

(i) know you want to go to bed, it's getting late (the) moonlight, oh it's shining, & the planes they ain't flying (i) know you need to rest your head, just lay right here (the) sunlight, oh it's faded, & your spirit, it's jaded .. (i) know that the stars are shinning (but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright (you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising (i) know you're gonna feel alright (i) know the tricks the teachers play, with heads so young (the) colors, oh they fading, & the cars, well, they ain't running (i) know the world is bleak, im blunt on that one thing (the) letters, ain't no meaning, and the clocks they are a-ticking .. (i) know that the stars are shinning (but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright (you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising (i) know you're gonna feel alright [solo] .. (i) know that the stars are shinning (but that dont) mean you need to shimmer bright (you'll) wake to see the sun . (as its) rising (i) know you're gonna feel alright i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, just wait it out ..., (well) what are we still waiting for? (i) sat around for decades now and this is where i am ..., (lets) leave our brains in toxic waste (and) pass out at the laundramat, and ask them what they think of that ..., (well) i just wanna see the world (i) walked michigan avenue, but there's nothing to see in something new ..., (lets) talk some existential shit (and) blame it on the apple sauce, and he who overcooked the brats i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out i know there's nothing much to do, but i cant wait it out

Two Birds 04:33
.. (the) sun is shining in our old hometowns .. (we) said goodbye so long ago .. taste the breeze of tainted memories .. smell the meat and hold your own .. (you) told me stories of a dying tree .. (a) part of me can still relate .. gave perspective on the way the doors would close .. told the debt collector all the things he owes sometimes i feel like we're two birds in a nest threatening to fly away sometimes i feel like we're two birds in a nest threatening to fly away .. (the) sun is setting in our old hometowns .. pop the cork off the champagne .. taste the rush of making memories .. smell the fear and hold your own .. (you) told me stories about planting trees .. (and) i just felt so warm inside .. gave perspective on the pathways that you chose .. down the rabbit hole, a place that no one knows

if your day is shaken and if your heart is breakin you gotta take a simple step and put it all away ain't no time for frownin and ain't no time for scowlin let's see that little smile from-a one ear to the next lets see that little smile one ear to next if you're left to drinkin to stop all of y'thinkin, you gotta take a simple step to clear your mind ain't no time for vices, and put down your devices, let's see that little smile from-a one ear to the next lets see that little smile one ear to next i know it ain't easy, and hell it might seem sleazy to put all of your fears to bed (and) i know that it's crappy, but if you want be happy, you gotta take a big ol' breath and learn a little how to let things go, yea learn a little how to let things go

thought on your mind .. (you) think you know why the people can't fly and live in the sky give it a go .. i don't think you know the power of life's unstoppable force . take a walk in my head .. (i) think you'll relate to something here .. (a)llow me to flesh it out, and ease up all your fears you cant forever predict the weather. i choose to be happy for later. drink in your hand .. (you) celebrate life escaping the truth for many a night throw out your plans .. (and) make something out of the hole when you fall right in
