Track Name: Wake Up
Wake up now you're wasting time
you have no hope, you can take mine

I don't know what's in your head
but I know what's on your mind.

You woke up feeling not yourself,
but you don't really want to be anyone else
and you're sick of this
and you're sick of hearing how that won't change a thing.

The panic that is in you
and all around you
it won't last.

Forget all that it's told you
don't hold on so tight to your past
'cos this moment is getting better by the day
and if you don't believe it will anyway.

You're looking for someone to show you
things that you already know
to calm yourself with stories
of the life you thought you had.

You've either finally turned the corner
or gone entirely round the bend
but if you cannot tell the difference
what's the difference then?

The panic that is in you
and all around you
it won't last.

Forget all that it's told you
don't hold on so tight to your past
'cos this moment is getting better by the day
and if you don't believe it will anyway.

'Cos this moment's getting better by the day
and even if it won't just believe it
Just believe it anyway.
Track Name: Do Whatever
When you're working hard to make it happen
and you're happening to come up short.

Do whatever you want, all of your plans are made up.

When you've always been an exhibitionist
but you've never managed to get caught.

Do whatever you want, all of your plans are made up.
Do whatever you want.

Well I'm working hard to be an optimist
and it's working better than I'd thought.

Do whatever you want, all of your plans are made up.
Do whatever you want.
Track Name: Everything, Everyone
We've been sleeping on a lot lately.
It doesn't make for the most therapeutic sleep.

But I don't know what else to do with everything
that occupies my waking mind so completely
how can I make it all just let me be?

Everything, everyone, everything, everyone, everything, everyone

It all just slips my mind.
It all just slips my mind, this time.

Your way of speaking, so understated.
Your way of thinking, so abbreviated.
Your way of drinking, so inebriated.

I only hope my looks will get me by okay,
'cos I really don't have a thing to say.

Everything, everyone, everything, everyone, everything, everyone.

It all just slips my mind.
It all just slips my mind, this time.
Track Name: Don't Think
I just don't think I'm in a place for this kind of thing.
Surely you have other mistakes you could me making?
Dirty looks on friendly faces, something we both know.
I don't think that you have a clue where this is going to go.

But if we don't think twice, this will take half the time
and we can both get on with our lives.

You just want to talk, but we don't really get along.
Turning out the lights doesn't seem to turn you on.
What exactly was I thinking? I can't really tell.
I don't need this, you don't need that.
It's working out well.

But if we don't think twice, this will take half the time
and we can both get on with our lives.
I wonder if you know
where this is going to go
I wonder if you care as much as I'm beginning to think
I do
without thinking through
all the things you'll do
when you just want something new.

I just don't think.
I just don't think.

I just don't think.
I just don't think.

But if we don't think twice, this will take half the time
and we can both get on with our lives.
I wonder if you know
where this is going to go
I wonder if you care as much as I'm beginning to think
I do
without thinking through
all the things you'll do
when you just want something new.
Track Name: Friends Without Benefits
Why do I seem to want you in a way I can't explain?
I don't want to do anything recognizable with you
but it just continues to plague me.

I can't stop thinking of what I can't picture in my head.
Can you blame me?
I don't believe you can.

Whose idea was this?

You took my advice, I think I might want it back.
When you said you would act on it
I didn't realize that meant
that you were going to go and quit.
I think that's a little drastic.

Strictly platonic
and perfectly honest
we're friends without benefits
whose idea was this?

All these lines
that we're never going to cross.
Draw enough and we'll trip over them
eventually so

Strictly platonic
and perfectly honest
we're friends without benefits
whose idea was this?

You want more than I want
but more than anything
I want this
back to the way it was
when it was just the way it is.

What seemed quite easy before
has been a little difficult lately
You asked if we could just not talk
and I pretended to agree.

Strictly platonic
and perfectly honest
we're friends without benefits
whose idea was this?

Why do I seem to want you in a way I can't explain?
Track Name: Maybe You Get What You Want
I want you to know
I don't want to go
around anymore
without being sure
of the things in your head
you left so unsaid
before.

Well you know what I mean
you just don't seem to think
it means anything
you're just so serenely untouchable now
and that's just how it is.

Maybe you get what you want
or maybe you get what you were asking for
if you can't complain, you've nothing left to say.

Tell me the truth
tell me you want to believe in it too.
Tell me whatever you're thinking
I might want to hear.

When we are good
we can do anything
it's understood
that nothing can stand in our way
but us
the way we do.

Maybe you get what you want
or maybe you get what you were asking for
if you can't complain, you've nothing left to say.

We know
we know
what we want
this is what we want.

We know what we want
we just haven't got
a clue what to do with it.
Track Name: I Really Want to Do This
I really want to do this with you
but we only just met
we only just met

Well that's ok
to be honest
I'm still hung up on my ex
and I'm afraid what we might do next
I wouldn't be at my best

But I like how it feels
when you're touching my neck
and I think if I weren't so obscure
you might just keep me here

But I have no real sense
of the things that I want
Are the things that I want just the things that I've got?

I'm tied up and then
I'm tied down again.
I'm tied down again.

Your rooms like an office
no external windows
and I can't tell the time
or quite where I am

and I've no idea
what my business is here
but it's well after hours
so I don't think that really matters.

Why are you shaking?
Why are you shaking?
Well why aren't you shaking?
Why aren't you shaking?

I have no real sense
of the things that I want
Are the things that I want just the things that I've got?

I'm tied up and then
I'm tied down again.
I'm tied down again.

Well it seemed connected, but it's gone away.

But I still think I'll be ok.
I'll get mine another way.

My alarm wakes me up
makes me wonder
if three hours sleep
is enough
to call this the morning after?
Or enough to drive home on
it's quite a long way
is one night ever enough
to call this anything?
Track Name: Anything at All
I asked you what was on your mind
I didn't want to know.

You said that you just needed some time
this was a while ago.

The things you think are so important
sometimes turn out to be.

If you don't believe me, well believe me
you will eventually.

Sometimes I feel I could do anything at all
And it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference
to the wall
that you've built between us.

This isn't about getting you back
it's just about revenge.

And I know I should move on instead
or I could just pretend.

I always had my reservations
you still won't let me stay.

I guess I will just move on
but probably not right away.

Sometimes I feel
I could do anything at all
and it wouldn't make the slightest bit of difference
to the wall
that you've built between us.

Well we've been through this and back again.
Track Name: More Fun
I've been dreaming of your friends
I've been trying to make amends
for things I haven't done.

When I try to talk to you
I realize I just don't want to
and that's why it's so hard.

Lately I've been thinking this could be more fun.
Lately I don't think I've been the only one.

I can't help but be sure
that I've no idea where your intentions
have got to lately.

And the shape of things to come
is of no use for either one
if we both don't want to see it.

Lately I've been thinking this could be more fun.
Lately I don't think I've been the only one.

It's not necessarily you
but it's definitely not me.

I don't want to be the one who
comes undone
and ruins all the fun.

Don't think too much.
Don't think too much.
Think too much.

Lately I've been thinking this could be more fun.
Lately I don't think I've been the only one.
