Track Name: the coming up right
its easier than they say to stay the same, to never change (and we were also young). its harder than it sounds. to tell the truth, its harder than it sounds, and we still smoke too much when we shake like this. we just can't keep warm - its like they have all the wrong seasons here. winter came and we slept half this year away, because its easier than they say and its harder than it sounds, the coming-up-right, the being-better-suited-for...
Track Name: slower, still
you're talking too fast now and you sound so sincere, like you believe it or maybe you heard somewhere that there's a difference between nothing and everything. well, we're still coming around to the idea that maybe you know nothing about nothing, and nothing on end, and it never ends. HEY! Adrian, i don't think we'll win this one, tonight. hey, Adrian, talk slow (hey) and get some sleep. i think you've had enough to drink, tonight

Track Name: (hands and feet) and everyone
we've never been afraid of death or anything else, and we move too fast to stop or get caught up, all of us and everyone. all together, we make a loud noise when we say that we want the same thing and it holds us up, all of us - so why are you dragging your feet around and hanging your head in our town? well, we have plans for you: just open your hands, now, and pick your feet up from the ground, and forget everything and everyone that you know. and all of us and everyone will be lighter than air, with no one holding us there. and we will never be afraid of death
