Track Name: Act Natural
Meet me 'round the back door, they won't see us
careful of the neighbours, rumour says they're jealous
we'll be sneaking out to the street
when the coast is clear

someone's on the TV, she's so pretty
shake her little fist and read the manifesto
guess they think we're stupid, they're right
but we won't get burned

breathe out, they've not caught us
we don't pray to their black stone goddess at all
act natural, soon we'll disappear

just behind the precinct, the wall breaches
they'll be burning cars and waving blackened banners
we'll be making our break, for sure
when we're past the square

all the helicopters and loudspeakers
punctuate the silence, tell us we're defeated
guess they think we're under the thumb
but they never learn

breathe out, they've not caught us
we don't pray to their black stone goddess at all
act natural, soon we'll disappear

fool your family, you can't trust them
and how well do you know your friends?
you seem alright to me, far as I can tell

ask your questions, you see they're scared
they're not as tough as they seem up there
so one more to doubt, and one less under the spell

breathe out, they've not caught us
we don't pray to their black stone goddess at all
act natural, soon we'll disappear
Track Name: All My Jokes
Girls used to think I was handsome and clever
or maybe felt sorry for me, or whatever
maybe I used to be cool but you never know
all of the things that I did in my 20s
[there were standouts] oh I'm sure there were plenty
probably seemed cute at the time but I'm getting old

you've heard all my jokes, and all my stories
heard all my jokes, and you still like me
heard all my jokes, and yet you're still
here with me

you've heard all my jokes, and they're not funny
heard all my jokes, but you humour me
got all my germs, but you still like
kissing me

I'm starting to get just a little bit wrinkly
mostly I smell pretty nice, but I'm stinky
things about me over time that you've learned to love
how could you still think I'm pretty [who knows?]
standing on stage in last year's clothes
thinking I'm punk in my chucks and my messy hair

you've heard all my jokes, and all my stories
heard all my jokes, and you still like me
heard all my jokes, and yet you're still
here with me

you've heard all my jokes, and they're not funny
heard all my jokes, but you humour me
got all my germs, but you still like
kissing me

I'm cranky and angry [your hobbies are strange]
a creature of habit [and that won't change]
if there was a medal for patience you'd get the gold

how can it be so many years? [you're still around]
it's not like you're some kind of fool [better choices abound]
thank you for sticking around and for being cool

you've heard all my jokes, and all my stories
heard all my jokes, and you still like me
heard all my jokes, and yet you're still
here with me

you've heard all my jokes, and they're not funny
heard all my jokes, but you humour me
know all my tricks, but you still believe in me
here with me. not leaving me alone.
Track Name: The Great Forgetting
They sold that beloved house
'cause there's nobody left to fill it
I'm left to wonder what it means

something I can't ask about
'cause we severed our lives completely
sometimes I wish we were 17

salad days and sometimes nights
were picked-over bones when you took flight
now you're a vapour in my mirror

it's been so long, how did it come to this?
fading into nothing in my mind
the best thing I've ever done is forget you

Heard rumours you moved around
were you trying to find your senses?
I'm sorry that was pretty mean

I've always been sure about
how I never could stand forgetting
as sentimental as it seems

how can you casually discard
years of our lives, we tried so hard
something's missing from your memory

surly girl, it isn't fair
but knowing you're out there can't compare
to not forgetting, and forgiving

this seems so wrong, we weren't meant to be
no better than strangers should we meet
the best thing I've ever done is forget you
Track Name: Katie Said (Tell The Truth)
Go ahead act up if you've got to
you know darn well that everyone wants you
despite ourselves we take you seriously

the dumbest things that I ever do
are mostly just the times when I'm with you
'cause you don't like responsibility

go ahead start fights if you've got to
I'll tell you tomorrow cops nearly caught you
offending every sensibility

around the place we all hang about
shenanigans get you so chucked out
they let you back out of curiosity

you'll borrow if you can't beg or steal
the consequences are barely real
so either way you're getting things for free

even you know you're a mess
it doesn't make me like you any less
'cause you and I, we've got a history

you notice things that I don't see
you're not aware of the irony
so when you're drunk you tell the truth to me

confessing things and feeling sad
as habits go it's pretty bad
but when you're drunk you tell the truth to me
Track Name: Your Damage
Break free from whatever you wanted
all of your plans feel so absurd
one night and your attic gets haunted
now it's the most of your concerns

I don't know if it's still going through your head
I don't think you'll be going home tomorrow

pinch me and we'll see if we're dreaming
it's pretty clear that you aren't sure
can't stay but you aren't leaving
what we are now is not what we were

maybe so, it's still spinning 'round your head
but I think you'll be coming home tomorrow

so it's time for coming clean, pretend I don't know
but I've waited for so long for you to say so
don't say it if it's not respectable
but I've waited for so long for you to say so

for a moment, you forgot yourself
for a moment, maybe I was someone else
and when you're home tomorrow
you'll have such regrets
do you think you might come back again?

break free and we'll see if you're damaged
you could be anywhere in the world
don't question if you can manage
it's just a tear in the eye of a girl

so it's not a perfect dream, OK it's a shitshow
but I've waited for so long for you to say so
I don't care whether or not it's such a blow
'cause I've waited for so long for you to say so
but I've waited for so long for you to say so
and I've waited for so long for you to say so

I suppose I'm assuming what you said
means I've got your heart
and your sorry self will follow
Track Name: We're Not Coming Out
There is a place we can go
it isn't far from where we're sitting now
the price is still pretty low
you're going to get it when you see. oh.

no sound just walking around
who better to be than you and me?
I've never seen you this way before

I think I know how you feel
it only lingers for a little while
this isn't life but it's real
there just were things you couldn't see. see?

not fear, but stay kind of near
it's not being brave all the same
I'll never see you the same again

we're not coming out
you'll have to come and get us I guess
we're not having doubts
are you foe or friend?
we're not coming out
you'll just have to come and get us I guess
we're not coming out. not yet

well every word that you say
sounds just a little more amusing now
will echo after today
you're lost and laughing here with me. stay

the world's bright and honest tonight
and we wouldn't dream of being mean
I've never trusted this way before

we're not coming out
you'll have to come and get us I guess
we're not having doubts
are you foe or friend?
we're not coming out
you'll just have to come and get us I guess
we're not coming out. not yet
