everything in the world is running through my mind and it wakes me up   at night it's a wicked world but I don't mind tonight it's all right I want to come home and see you again spend Christmas in Berlin there's snow outside  in a winter-worn sky we stay in I write a song when this plane lands I'll walk into your arms and wonder why it's been so long I want to do what I want to do spend Christmas in Berlin everything in the world is running through my mind and it keeps me up  at night everything in the world everything in the world  everything in the world is all right

you give the longest compliments that I've ever heard but not me I sing and murder my days one at a time I can be impossible you hang on my every word forgive me I sing and murder my days one at a time everyone is watching us and wishing they were in this scene even if on the day of our undoing we're never gonna learn no not me I sing and murder my days one at a time everyone is watching us and wishing they were in this scene even if it's a not quite perfect film we're in when the morning found me my head was full of words believe me I sing and murder my days one at a time everyone is watching us and wishing they were in this scene even if it's a not quite perfect film we're in

Andy Warhol's gone we're without him we've got no plans and it's just because we're not perfect something's wrong Andy Warhol's gone I thought it out and I wrote it down it makes no sense today I wrote on both sides of the page I've said it all I've said everything it makes no sense today it all sounds awfully strange

Have You Ever Been Afraid of the Future? have you ever been afraid of the future have you ever been afraid of what goes on in your mind when you're not even trying and then there's those days when you can't make contact you feel like your whole damn life is a crime and you're nothing and you're nowhere we all go to sleep on ourselves we spend our time on everybody else if you wanna see someone think about them real hard wanna see the future you're out of luck cause it's nothing and it's nowhere

The Peacocks 03:27
I'm so sick of the peacocks they're nothing like you or me all they've got is their big talk and they all sound the same everything is just how you said it would be gimme some distance I need some room to think I'm in need of assistance from time to time everything is not how I want it to be hold on just please stay I'm not really this way I'm so sick of the peacocks I'm so sick of everyone all they've got is their big talk and they all sound the same everything has stop making sense to me God knows there's only so much I can take

we build people up  so we can tear them down it's a strange design it hit me in the chest and for my reply I gave a stupid smile I can't understand you  can't even understand myself all we know how to do is live and die
9.
I wanna be just like you Wanna get inside you. Wanna dream about you cross my heart and hope you die this won't take too long maybe a little long this hurts me more than you cross my heart and hope you die it occurs to me my love I want a little but it's never enough I'm really gonna miss you. God I'm gonna miss you I'm gonna dream about you cross my heart it occurs to me my love I want a little but it's never enough I knew you'd understand what looks good with a black armband
10.
man I'm all over the place I'll try and keep this tasteful I'm just trying to say it's a lovely day for a breakdown I'm the king  with a whiskey throne I take myself with me wherever I go you said that I was crazy give me time I'm really lazy I got nothing to say I'm one step closer to the bottom I got what I don't need leave me be just let me bleed here I guess I shouldn't say this I guess I'll see you around

Fragile 02:22
Jesse wants a moped and she's not joking that's what she's hoping for she's not fragile she just don't care I don't want to amuse you I do but I don't want to all this weirdness goes by just like a parade nobody gets me  anymore this should have been so easy I watch my thoughts crawl by me like a freeze-frame picture on a tv screen
12.
I remember thinking that I hope I'm never like you and then I said it and you were crying because I did not regret it but I didn't mean it I was just being cruel
