Field Day

Screwdriver Brush Burn
lay on this mattress, kissing your memory, pretending that you are back here laying on me, entwined in the middle of a sad reality, i'm coping you're thinking but it's not fair to me, so you say good-bye, like I've said a million times. but i never meant it and i take it back. so you leave me here, i think i'm so clever and you'll come running back, guess i'm as lucky as a heart attack, or a gunshot in the back from your best friend or your girlfriend. so go now before i die right in front of you, i shouldn't live like this anymore, there it was right in front of me, but love isn't a gift, it's a disease. playing songs that remind me of you, as i sit undercovers with the lights off in my room, i explain to you my fear of change, you're my constant, kill my pain. so you decide now is the perfect time to break my heart, and i'm left with these stupid screwdriver brush burn scars. i'm calling you and you put me on hold, i grab at your arm and you begin to scold me for being insecure.
Love Song
the night was perfect, can be expressed in words, coz words can be missed, feelings are never unheard, this kiss that we've shared so utterly plain, so completely mind-shattering, so perfectly placed. and maybe i did it right, maybe i did it wrong, but i will look back on this night all life long, and maybe you'll say I love you, maybe we'll kiss goodbye, maybe i'll be the one to wipe the tears away from your eyes. so simply put i can't comprehend, how you'd fall this far down and, pick me up, don't let me down, time stops when you're near, time stops when you're around. and i love the way you look when you're done working out, and i love the stupid things we say when there's nothing to talk about, and i love all of your favorite songs even though they all suck, coz anything that reminds me of you is good enough, enough.
She Never Apologized
you can look somewhere else coz i'm not looking in your direction anymore, and i have found myself waking up way too often pulling my chin up off the floor, and maybe one day you can come back here and tell me everything i've done wrong, this last telephone conversation has gone on for way too long, and maybe you can say to me as i walk out the door, "i'm sorry i always kept you looking for something more" but this day is twenty-eight hours too long, and i can't find the good spot on the floor, that i have so often called my home before. and every single day i wake up and look in the mirror i see your face, kissing your neck, you're so perfect, and i was always so out of place, marking the calendar, to check off another day i've survived without you, maybe you can call me up to tell me to shut up like you always do, so maybe i can see you face down in the gutter, maybe i call your house and i get your mother, maybe i let you know i don't want you to leave, and maybe you let me know you're still in love with me.
(HEART) Break
"frankly", i said, "there's nothing you can do, "to make me feel any worse so let loose, "you can say anything it couldn't do much harm, "so let's end this night go home and fall asleep in each other's arms" and you said "no, no, this isn't right, no, no not tonight, "no, no this isn't smart, this will only end with a broken heart" she couldn't be much better at her field of expertise, ripping my heart out and getting me down on my knees, begging her to come back to me, begging for her to come back, to come back. i give up you've said enough, ignore me do whatever you want.
You and Me (and other useful pronouns)
is there any way we can talk this over? i just think there's gotta be an easier solution, coz i'm not too inclined to starting over, so let's stop right now, and start with absolution, and completely off-guard is not how to end a night, but you don't seem to care so i have to deal, and you say that you're sorry and you know how it must be, but you don't have a clue how it feels, or else you wouldn't do this, don't tell me it's over, don't tell me it's over, i lean against the wall and talk to myself, and i walk around my room and turn on the light, i stand on the ground, dead on my feet, the fan hits my face like a thousand fist fights, but you still do this, donít tell me itís over, donít give up just yet, maybe we can talk this over, maybe we can work it out,
Thank You For The Year
i understand every word you've just said, now please never say them to me again, and maybe one day i'll make sense, and maybe we'll be what you want best friends, and maybe one day we'll make plans, i hope for that day to come quicker if it can, so thank you for this last year, it's been too much fun, and hopefully not just in my dreams, there will be another one. inhale without you, harder each breath i've taken, even worse since you've been away, it's cold outside, is it warm where you are? does he kiss better than me? will he break your heart? as many times as I did, i'm sorry, please take me back.
What Can I Say 724
we've made mistakes but if this makes sense to you, then i'll do it. and summer is the loneliest season, for just one reason, you're not here, and it's not fair. but i'll never die again, sit and cry again, i won't lie agan, i promise, if you take me back again, i would relax again, just take this knife out of my hand, i promise, is this how it ends? you can't kill the pain, with the edge of a blade.
Northeast December
there are shards of glass that litter the floor, you're walking on water instead, you've placed your wet fingertips on TV screens, you've combined them with your breath, there are some things you've never seen before, you've been like this once i remember, you've been worried about less than this, you've been colder than a northeast december. there are shards of glass that litter the floor, you're walking on me instead, you've placed your wet lips on my before, you've combined them with your breath. there are some things you've never seen before, they're signified by the broken trust, we've had fights about less than this, what happened to us?
Untitled #4
watch the water fall off your fingertips, stare at trees as post-mortem rain drips, watch your brown eyes stare at the bright blue sky, and i'm not even gonna ask about that shared glance with another guy, waiting for your call, i am all alone, waiting for your call, to tell me you're at home.
Pure
hold on she said to me as she let me go, i would have known everything, if she would've let me know, you're always so insecure to the thickest point, and if you are so damned pure, well who is always right? and you couldn't keep me happy, you wouldn't do a thing, you sought you rip your heart out, pulling all the strings, you've come so far, why do you have to be afraid? and i'm always alone you should have stayed, and i'm left in the middle, in the middle of the game, i'd say this was different but it's always the same, go on she said to me as she walked away, stay here we'll talk tonight and we'll be okay, you're too cool for me, and i'm a stupid fool, if you were coming on too strong, then why'd i break a rule? and you couldn't keep me happy, you wouldn't do a thing, you sought to rip my heart, you searched around endlessly.
Things That I Did
pushing the light switch down, darkness occurs, as i finger the doorknob, twisting it back and forth, i wonder if i should open it or not, fianlly i come to the conclusions that this room is getting the best of me, i'm finding that the seclusion comes with knowing when to break free, so before i walk off, i slip on the green shirt that reminds me of you, the shirt has been worn off, i should get it off, but i can't find a reason to. wincing, as i step through the pain but there's no reason to feel it, so ignore it, say nothing about it, let out no emotion, i have felt enough pain for one night i decide as i lean against the wall pushing myself through the hallway like everyday of life and all, that i have felt is nothing compared to what i wish you would feel, but you feel nothing coz you cant't exist, there's no way you are real the moon peers through a window shutter, somehow brighter than the sun, i catch a glimpse of myself in the mirror, my sad bastard reflection, can't seem to face you without facing myself, revising my strategy, so why don't you come back to me, so why don't you come back to me? i fall down the stairs it hurts like when i fell on my face for you why don't you help me get back up, it couldnt be that hard for you to do. so expect me to be the one outside your window, when you think think someone is, and expect me to come back when you realize all of the things he won't do but i did, yeah, expect me to be the one outside your window, when you think someone is, and expect me to come back when you realize all of the things he won't do that i did, expect me: expect me to fall flat on my stomach in front of the whole world for you, expect me: expect me to choke on all the words i try to say when i try to act smooth. so expect me to be the one outside your window, when you think someone is, and expect me to come back when you realize all of the things he won't do that i did.
Hazel
you could make me crazy, don't close your eyes coz i'm captivated, yeh, you drive me crazy, don't close your eyes coz I am captivated, and you could make anything better than it really is, just look me in the eye and tell me it's alright, coz i believe any word that comes out of your mouth, so please say "i love you" again tonight, so thank you for every smile you've blessed me with, so thank you for every time you've looked me in the eyes, truth is, i'm never happier than any moment i'm with you, lost in, i am lost in you, don't ever free me from your sight, i, i am lost in your beauty, can't, can't get out, and i never want to, i, i am lost in your eyes, can't can't get out, and i love you.
Broken Heart Synopsis
fall over again on the side of the road, and you may find that i have already done the same, it's the middle of, the middle of the day, difference between what it is all the same, i am the one that you wanted to hate all your life, i am the one you have found, i am everything that you have found, it can't be fixed, destroyed beyond repair, the solemn kickbacks of preference, and detract my feelings from the mix, the agony, the despair, maybe you can find some to take you back, i am the one that you wanted to hate all your life, i am the one you wanted to have, i am everything that you have found, so blast off, this is just a theory of relative dysfunction, so carom, off a wall and back to me just like you've always done, you seem to care. so sure you think it's great, that what you say is what you say, but it's already been said, before, so maybe i should hold the candle to the flame, destroy the wick down to the wax and burn it down, i am the one that you wanted to hate everything in your life, i am the one that you wanted to have, i am everything that you have found, so what is so great about these clever mattresses with patterns that you couldn't have made? and what is the mystery between things like liner notes and album covers, like a novel written by hand, it hurts after a while.
If The Sun Explodes Good Riddance
won't you tell me that this gets better coz i have my doubts, i've gone my whole life with out figuring anybody out, and i think that this is interesting, and i think that this fight will kill us both if we keep on going, won't you tell me it gets better coz the sun is not rising, you're not leaving me here tonight, until one of us is dying, and then you'll scream some nonsense about how i never cared, even though i had my doubts. it's still not rising, it's still not coming up, it's still not rising, it's still not coming up, there it goes, there you are. can i have my pen back?

The World in Stanzas

Song 1
(Verse 1) I'm staring through, a window, that's covered by a shutter, And I'm hiding under a stack of comforters, I plead with my sanity, please don't leave me, I wish there was a bank that I could withdraw your sympathy.
(Bridge) But you leave me no choice, stumble I will no more, I am forced to stick out my chin, and get knocked to the floor.
(Verse 2) So where do you sleep at night, which side I should ask, Picturing you two together, is an impossible task, Coz you were mine for so long. And you and him are so wrong.
(Bridge) Feeling like an egg, in a frying pan, Feeling like a never ending, traffic jam.
(Verse 3) So where is your bitter disguise? Why not shed some light from between, your eyes. You're so deadlocked in your self-confidence, You don't even realize what you've missed. You missed me.
Good Afternoon (It's Over)
(Verse 1) You used to call just to talk, Sneak out the house for a midnight walk, But now something has gone wrong, Why the hell else would I sing this song?
(Verse 2) Broken hearts, slashed tires, and dreams, Love never comes as it seems, How am I supposed to- Do all the shit that you wanted me to do.
(Chorus) We tried real hard, We failed this time, You take yours and I'll take mine, I'll think about you all night long, We started out right, We turned out wrong.
(Verse 3) Something sincere in your face, Wants me the hell out of this place. I see your eyes wherever I go now, I see your face and it turns me down.
(Chorus) 2x We tried real hard, We failed this time, You take yours and I'll take mine, I'll think about you all night long, We started out right, We turned out wrong.
(Chorus #2) I'll think about you, she said. I'll think about you, I lied.
So Certainly

(Verse 1) Leave it to me To leave it to nothing, I know it's all my fault again.
(Verse 2) If you stare in my eyes, As if you see nothing, I'll be inclined to believe that it's all my fault again.
(Chorus) When you get there, will you send me a postcard? When you get there, will you let me know you got that far.
(Verse 3) Watch me lead, One foot in front of the other, If we fail, it's all my fault again.
(Verse 4) This is a need, A need for eachother, If we break up, it's all my fault again.
(Chorus) When you get there will you send me a postcard? When you get there will you let me know you got that far?
When you get there will you send me a postcard? When you get there will you let me know you got that far?
(Verse 5) Leave it to me, To leave it to nothing, I know it's all my fault again.
(Chorus) When you get there will you send me a postcard? When you get there will you let me know you got that far?

In Sussex
(Verse 1) How much can you know about you? That hasn't already been told to you. I'm not complaining, I'm just simply wondering.
(Bridge) But I am here if you need me. Too bad, I am going the wrong way, I'm sorry.
(Chorus) Looking back, I hope you're ok, I hope you make it out there, Oh, in Sussex. Oh, in Sussex.
(Verse 2) So I'm looking farther back now, Not looking so straight, seems crooked, Nothing is in front of me, Nothing is behind me.
(Bridge) Nothing looks too good for me, But I'm hoping eventually, I'll wind up in Sussex.
(Chorus) Looking back, I hope you're ok, I hope you make it out there, Oh, in Sussex. Oh, in Sussex.
(Verse 3) There's more for you to find, Than there ever was before, I just wish you would've been able to stay, I wish you wouldn't have gone there.
(Bridge) But nowhere seems right for you and me, So ends our depressing story, But now
(Chorus) Looking back, I hope you're ok, I hope you make it out there, Oh, in Sussex. Oh, in Sussex.

Theme
(Verse 1) You leave without a scratch, Unharmed it seems, I can't imagine what you see in him, Recycling you is the theme,
(Bridge) And I crash and burn, Hoping that you'll learn, But you don't seem, To learn the theme…
(Chorus) You've never looked so damned down, as that night, So you've started to look up, all right? Nothing is all right.
(Verse 2) You leave so completely ruined, Blatant as it seems, I can't imagine you're so incoherent, He puts you down that's the theme.
(Bridge) You're as closed minded as it gets, Shutting out anything a friend suggests, Yeh so, blame it on me, Yeh, is that your theme?
(Chorus) You've never looked so damned down, as that night, So you've started to look up, all right? Nothing is all right.
