Track Name: Hey Weirdo
I don't know why you even try to seem like one of the sheep.
It doesn't help you to get by! Everyone still thinks you're a creep.
Weirdo.
But I know there's something beautiful down inside your bones--
Murders of crows must know it too, they peck at you! They won't leave you alone.
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo!
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Let go.

I can't explain why we remain so sick and dirty all the time.
Some kind of lizard in our brains plays messed-up tricks on all our minds, weirdo.
But I've learned the game is rigged. The fix is in; they won't let us win.
So let's get out; we'll build something new where we'll only let weirdos in.
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo!
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Let go.
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo!
Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey weirdo! Hey!
I love you.
Track Name: Strange Light
I used to wish that I was beautiful,
and had the power that you do.
Because I thought if I could conquer all of you,
The world would thank me for my rule.

But now I know I am combustible:
I am the fire and the fuel.
Like the inferno at the center of the sun,
Once unleashed, I'll burn everything you love.

So if I don't react, it's just an act,
I'm smoldering inside--
There is destruction in my heart.

I know you're not gonna want me this way.
I know I will be pitiless and cruel.
'Cause there's a strange light inside of me
That I can't let you see.
Bright and true,
It will devour you
If you see
So run away from me.
I will explode.
I will explode.
I will explode.
I will explode.
Track Name: Shaky Smile
When the rain ends, we'll go walking alone,
Out hand in hand, into the woods, into the mountains.
And when the rain ends, we'll go out in the sun,
Fearless and warm, to look for survivors.

And we'll see our friends at last, they'll recognize our shaky smiles.
We'll be free from all these perjuries and mercies of our minds.
And we'll leave our disappointments and compulsive crimes behind.

When the rain ends, will you come along?
When the rain ends, will you come along?

Will you call my name?
Say you love me-- I can't hear.
Will you call my name?
As if you loved me-- I couldn't hear.

And in your room the walls are all on fire,
Gold gleaming wires, light lacerations.
And in your itchy skin you've come to a still point of return,
A centerless center.

And we'll see our dear and lost, they'll recognize our shaky smiles.
We'll be free from all these surgeries and perjuries of mind.
And we'll leave all of our maladies and melodies behind.

When the rain ends, will you come along?
When the rain ends, will you come along?

Will you call my name?
Say you love me-- I can't hear.
Will you call my name?
As if you loved me-- I couldn't hear.
Will you call my name?
Will you call my name?
Track Name: Like You
There is nothing you can do about it now, so don't worry.
There is nothing you can do about it now, so don't worry
Your pretty little head.

Everything you know is going wrong, so don't worry.
Everything you know is going wrong, so don't worry,
There's nothing you can do.

Oh!
Oh!

If you think that everyone should be like you, don't worry.
If you think that everyone should be like you, don't worry,
They all think that too.

Oh!
Oh!
Oh!
Oh!

The stains on your face will mark you.
The stains on your face will mark you.
The stains on your face will mark you for good
And you'll never be alone again.
Awoo.
