Track Name: tuxedo
i've got a question
and no one's the answer
a tuxedo oh oh
and no one to dance with

i'm an illusion
though i may seem real
get too close you'll see
there's not much here

i'm a whisper in a crowd
i'm a dead end street
i'm a word no one knows
that doesn't mean anything

i'm a boot with no sole
i'm a brick with no wall
i'm the last person on earth
you would call
in an emergency

i've got a question
and no one's the answer
a tuxedo oh oh
and no one to dance with

on the day that i die
everyone will say
there's just so little that's different today

i'm a whisper in a crowd
i'm a desert of discarded seed
i'm a list of cliches about futility

i'm a boot with no sole
i'm a brick with no wall
i'm the last person on earth
you would call
in an emergency

i've got no one to dance with
a tuxedo oh oh
and no one to dance with

on the day that i die
everyone will say
there's not one thing worth remembering today
Track Name: animals
relax
little wild
for the first time
in our lives
we don't need to run

see the truth of every threat headed our way
is they die alone if dying here today
so let 'em try to tear us apart
just let 'em try to tear us apart

we'll rip out the bastards' hearts

you're an immutable force that glides
with the ease of water
never altering course as you shine out straight to me

and i guess lyrically i'm a wall that no one can get over
that stretches out as far as human eyes can see

and we don't need
to pretend
like we're animals
because we're people
and people kill just for love

and the truth of every threat headed our way
is they die alone if dying here today
so let 'em try to tear us apart
just let 'em try to tear us apart

we'll rip out the bastards' hearts
