Track Name: It's Not Started Until The Fat Girl Dances
That moment when you've ran
so much that you can see
the end line
but you don't want to reach it

And when you realize
that guy who's been eyeing your girl
is just a gay lad
who really likes her hair

Trying to fake an accent
every time you've gotta sing
but the crowd's not fooled
and you've just broken a string

And that local band
that you saw on TV
wouldn't get a point
at that spelling bee

You left the TV on
You left the water running
and now in front of everyone
you realize you shouldn't worry

Everybody's anxious
for the show to start
but words wont come out
your canker-ridden mouth

The icky soundman
keeps messing with your levels
while the hipster casanova
wants to get rid of her treble

The wrong words
to the wrong verse
wishing you could escape
her lovely stare

The lights go down
and the tension rises
but it is not started
until the fat girl dances
Track Name: We're All Very Impressed
Go ahead
Throw it all away
your shoes, your food
Go live in the hallway

Fight for a cause
it doesn't matter which
Choose a random one
every day

We are all very impressed
with your dirty hair
and your feet left undressed

Find something stupid to protest
and come show it off around
Cause we are all very impressed

Eyes all over you
It's your time to shine
So make your entrance
Come hate what's mine

Your need for attention
knows no boundaries

Fight for a cause
it doesn't matter which
Choose a random one
every day

It doesn't matter
if you are right or wrong
All that matters
is to hate them all

We are all very impressed
with your dirty hair
and your feet left undressed

Find something stupid to protest
and come show it off around
Cause we are all very impressed
Track Name: All Those Left Behind
I've seen the absinthe
and I've seen the coal
but I've never been able
to see where they've gone

I've heard about
the things that troubled you all before

In your smile
I heard a thousand songs
and I'm just about
to sing them all

In your eyes
I saw the downfall
of things long gone

And their hopes and dreams
have fallen apart
They're far away
Left in decay

But that moment when you stared at me
holds the answer

In their hearts
there are a thousand storms
and they're just about
to feel them all

While they sing
sing our song
We'll show them all
How it's done

This is for the ones who want the sun to shine
And for all of those left behind
The broken, battered, hopeless
The dead inside

I saw the end of the tunnel
and the start of the problem
It is all so far away

So hold my hand through the ages
and don't forget all those left behind
Track Name: Triangle
-Instrumental-
Track Name: Stuck
Fall back again
into the
darkest place inside my head

Feel how it
splits the deep
foundations of what I've been

Can't recognize
Can't close my eyes
Can't leave behind
Everything that was

Let's watch them fall
so we can both rise
And so we will build
our own paradise

Dream me a color
then smash it apart
I'm stuck in my mind
someone help me out

Fall back again
into the
darkest place inside my head

Feel how it
splits the deep
foundations of what I've been

But a gentle touch
will slowly calm
the violent fire
that glows inside

Let's watch them fall
so we can both rise
And so we will build
our own paradise

Dream me a color
then smash it apart
I'm stuck in my mind
someone help me out
