Track Name: Medicine
stutter or slur your sappy sentiments and sad advice
stumble toward something, stay
sorry and sore and self-absorbed

but you want me
and i want you
and it's crowded in this small room -
lets do ourselves a favor

lets take our medicine

we can say we don't believe in anything but love
or claim we don't believe in anything at all -
as long as we're together, there won't be any weather
to tell us if we're hot or cold

as I lit your cigarette
and you lit my cigarette
we looked so fancy didn't we?
Track Name: Smash The State
what about those metaphors you sang before?
something about dancing and smashing the state
how come nothing feels as important to us now as when we were seventeen?

and although it's a shame, i've got some heartbreaking news for you -
we're not as drunk or as high or as strong or as bright or as young as we once were, my dear

i know that things have been hard, but things are only getting harder
and i know you've been feeling old, but darling we're just getting older

what about those people who you loved before?
what about those people who loved you?
and everyone else who you were before?
aren't you worried that the next you won't be the best you?
or that the next you will be the last you?

and the problems you've endured will never add up to a sense of who you are or who you've become
because i hate to say it baby, but we're crazy and we're lazy
and i'm lying when i tell you that this shit don't phase me

there is no point to being alive if everything feels the same every day 'til we die
and i want things to change and want to keep lying

i want us to live then i want us to die

there is no point to being alive if everything feels the same every day 'til we die
and i want things to change and i want you to lie and

i want you to tell me we don't have to die
Track Name: Frankie Valli
i've been living like i know i'm alone
and ever since everyone's left i've felt it worse than before
but we gotta do what we gotta do

haven't felt this far from myself in a while
worried and wondering if i'll keep it together somehow

sometimes you win, but most times you lose

the nights are always long and the morning always comes
and the moon is pulling oceans - i'm burning from the sun
i fall with the leaves then despise the trees

everybody leaves, but not everybody goes
and if the moon can pull the oceans who knows?

but we gotta move where we gotta move

and i gotta do what i gotta do
and you gotta do what you gotta do
and we gotta do, yeah we gotta do

and I gotta do with or without you

seems like I would know by now -
everybody on a fading, dissipating cloud

i'll run away
you'll run away
we'll run away
Track Name: What Dying's For
All my life I've felt really, really bad, and all my life I've been trying to make up for that, but a lifetime of searching, a lifetime of wishing is what I had.

all my life i've felt really, really bad
and all my life I've been trying to make up for that
but a lifetime of searching, a lifetime of wishing is what i had

i can't remember the last time i felt good
i can't remember the last time i woke up feeling fine
without an underlying lie or a disguise to hide behind

oh my god it's getting so unbearable -
the way we treat each other and ourselves like we don't care at all

all my life i've felt worried and upset
and all my life i've never gotten used to it
because a worried, upset person is just a worried, upset person
don't you know?

sometimes there are just things that a person can't control

oh, you gotta change if you're trying to grow

and i don't want to stay the same forever, that's what dying's for
