Leave, leave it overlooked Keep me out of trouble You shouldn't have to beat no doors down I can hold my own, I've got my house in order now Oh I'm a disaster, someone stop me I should've known by now Sneaking in with the laundry Seizing an opportune time I didn't mean it, I just wasn't thinking How could this have happened to me? Now they've found me out You should take me back if you think it's important enough It's important enough It's important enough It's important enough Stop me, stop me, someone stop me You can't catch me, I'm not doing any damage

It's been an August for earplugs Make me a bed and I'll sleep there, weather permitting 'til an abrupt glare and hammers come hitting I wouldn't lay in if I could The peace can make away with the quiet but less of the box barking outdoors long hallway chats and flies in the speakers I wouldn't have a problem with that, oh I wouldn’t battle the morning, but it insists on starting it

Safe Side 02:55
I had a decent shot I pulled my luck apart trying with brute force to get scores, to make them count Help isn't coming soon I'm in my tiny room wondering how anybody could walk right out If the mood should strike, isn't it just immobilizing? If the mood should strike, isn't it just a bit distracting? I had a master plan clenched in my steady hand I had some ways and I had some ample means Somehow it got away, no cries of foul play held any water I couldn't disagree I couldn't disagree I couldn't disagree I couldn't disagree It's still a good idea It's still a good idea to err on the safe side and hold on for dear, dear life If the mood should strike, isn't it just immobilizing? If the mood should strike, isn't it just a bit distracting? Is it so, so far? Maybe it takes a little longer Could it be undone? Isn’t it late for starting over?

At the wrong end of a workday is a nice, decent night's sleep for someone who practices and paces and makes a habit out of wishing and it stifles any sense of significance when all it lets you have is the lack thereof gone to find something distracting and come back scraping at the ceilings Still what's yours is yours and what's yours is unmistakably yours until it's not It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's whatever it can do with whomever it might sit whenever it's most convenient but still it isn't peace just because some feelings might bounce off It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it It's not worth it, it's not worth it

Don't! Be careful! Don't! Be careful! No no no no, don't! Be careful! Be careful! Well you're never standing still and your face gets blurry There's not a word that doesn't summon a worry when you get back home from walking through all kinds of doors Then you shuffle out the house with your eyes peeled, poised, clear It's an invitation begging concern, dear Just what kind of nightlife do you hope you'll be in for? And I would absolutely love it if the satellite that's falling just came right through your roof Don't you know I settle into a dreadful panic when I wonder just what you could be planning? I'm not asking too much, I just wish you'd stay alright All I have is repetitions for you now and I can't stand another minute of shouting down You can't say I didn't give it a college try Don't! Be careful! Don't! Be careful! No no no no.... I would absolutely love it I would absolutely love it I would I would

Good Side 03:25
We should prepare, we need practice We'll go through walls with dots and dashes If you don't own flashlights, you're asking for it There are lots of luxuries we'll have to forfeit How will we react when we're in mortal danger and how can we relax when we can't see it coming? Outside doesn't have a place to hide Everybody wants to stay the night Waterproof blankets might save your life Raising the barricades, I'm built to survive If we get stranded, I'm so pragmatic A stockpile of flare guns sits in the attic How will we react when we're in mortal danger and how can we relax when we can't see it coming? Outside doesn't have a place to hide Everybody wants to stay the night So make sure you're on my good side my good side on my good side my good side
