Bear 05:24
(by Peter Silberman) There's a bear inside your stomach A cub's been kicking from within He's loud, though without vocal cords We'll put an end to him We'll make all the right appointments No one ever has to know And then tomorrow I'll turn twenty-one We'll script another show We'll play charades up in the Chelsea Drink champagne although you shouldn't be We'll be blind and dumb until we fall asleep None of our friends will come, they dodge our calls And they have for quite awhile now It's not a shock, you don't seem to mind And I just can't see how We're too old We're not old at all Just too old We're not old at all There's a bear inside your stomach A cub's been kicking you for weeks And if this isn't all a dream Well then we'll cut him from beneath Well we're not scared of making caves Or finding food for him to eat We're terrified of one another And terrified of what that means But we'll make only quick decisions And you'll just keep me in the waiting room And all the while I'll know we're fucked And not getting un-fucked soon When we get home we're bigger strangers Than we've ever been before You sit in front of snowy television Suitcase on the floor We're too old We're not old at all Just too old We're not old at all

(by Ben Gibbard) I am thinking it's a sign That the freckles in our eyes Are mirror images And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned And I have to speculate That God himself did make Us into corresponding shapes Like puzzle pieces from the clay And true, it may seem like a stretch But it's thoughts like this that catch My troubled head when you're away When I am missing you to death When you are out there on the road For several weeks of shows And when you scan the radio I hope this song will guide you home They will see us waving from such great heights "Come down now," they'll say But everything looks perfect from far away "Come down now," but we'll stay I tried my best to leave This all on your machine But the persistent beat It sounded thin upon listening And that frankly will not fly You will hear the shrillest highs And lowest lows with the windows down When this is guiding you home They will see us waving from such great heights "Come down now," they'll say But everything looks perfect from far away "Come down now," but we'll stay

Agnes 06:37
(by Dave Bayley) Agnes, just stop and think a minute Why don't you light that cigarette and Calm down now, stop and breathe a second? Go back to the very beginning Can't you see what was different then? You were just popping Percocet Maybe just four a week at best Maybe a smoke to clear the head Your head is so numb, that nervous breath you try to hide Between the motions, that trembling tender little sigh And so it goes, a choking rose back To be reborn, I want to hold you like you're mine You see the sad in everything A genius of love and loneliness and This time, you overdid the liquor This time, you pulled the fucking trigger These days, you're rolling all the time So low, so you keep getting high Where went that cheeky friend of mine? Where went that billion-dollar smile? Guess life is long when soaked in sadness On borrowed time from Mister Madness And so it goes, a choking rose back To be reborn, I want to hold you like you're mine You're gone but you're on my mind I'm lost but I don't know why

To You 03:59
(by Andy Shauf) Jeremy can we talk a minute? I've got some things that I need to Get off of my chest I know that we have had a few And it's far too late But if I wait I might never tell you Can we find somewhere quiet? Let's go outside I've got some smokes if you've got a light It's just that sometimes when I'm by your side It feels so right It feels like nothing could go wrong Does it ever Feel like that to you? Does it ever Feel like that to you? Oh I don't know what I mean It sounded wrong and I'm just tired Not being weird I just mean that you're a good friend It's hard to explain Just forget I said anything Get over yourself I'm not in love with you It just came out all wrong Yeah Tell the guys and laugh it up Why am I even surprised? That it never Feels like that to you That it never Feels like that to you I guess it never Feels like that to you I guess it never Feels like that to you

Stellate 04:32
(by Samia Finnerty) I'll hold you from your small How about that? How about that? You made me medium tall I'll make you feel good again You made your car a vacuum You pulled over too So when you let me out I owed my life to you I wanna get you sedated Like when it all began I wanna play you records I like I wanna hold your hand I wanna let it all go I swear, I swear I do Show me where you are stellate I'll stick the needle through You know it But I can say it for you And when the heat showed up You couldn't open the door I locked myself in and laid Down on the kitchen floor I put one of your vellum Between my face and yours So through the vellum You'd discern my face from yours You know it But I can say it for you I wanna wake you up Show you the boat I bought I wanna go sailing with you To someplace we are not You buy me a big bucket I scream into that And when it overflows You want your money back You know it But I can say it for you
