Track Name: One, Two, Three
You can't be alone with yourself
You roll your bones and tally sheep
Your desolation though worn so well
Can't be the lone companion that you keep

If you'll say that it's alright with you
Believe me it's alright you'll see
For you to count on me
Get ready, one, two, three

I dare you to cut loose the dark
And separate from lovesick roots
Let me stain your heavy heart
And love willing, it will once again bear fruit

If you'll say that it's alright with you
Believe me it's alright you'll see
For you to count on me
Get ready, one, two, three

A spellbound sap on his approach
I've only come here to confess
That I can't help but go for broke
I won't last on anything less

If you'll say that it's alright with you
Believe me it's alright you'll see
For you to count on me
Get ready, one, two, three
Track Name: Playing Dead
Sitting in some hotel bar in Oregon
I know I shouldn't risk my health
But if I could forget myself
Then maybe I could fix how I've been sleeping

I listen to the way I speak to strangers
It probably isn't worth remarking
But I swear that once I was charming
And now my conversations all get heated

I just made myself laugh to think I once assumed that I knew
Better than my mother, let me shed this awful costume
Undo every word I said that made the ones I love upset
I've spent too long playing dead

I'm old enough to know that I know nothing
Though I celebrate mere speculations
Innocently I believe them
I'm still young enough to trust my feelings

I tell myself to recognize my failings
Useless lies I hide behind
Hell, I'm too shy to meet your eye
I tell myself that maybe I should stay clean

I just made myself laugh to think I once assumed that I knew
Better than my mother, let me shed this awful costume
Undo every word I said that made the ones I love upset
I've spent too long playing dead

It didn't kill me but I don't feel stronger
My gut's in knots from toxic thoughts
My mind's a train that can't be stopped
And I'm not sure I can handle it much longer

I just made myself laugh to think I once assumed that I knew
Better than my mother, let me shed this awful costume
Undo every word I said that made the ones I love upset
I've spent too long playing dead
Track Name: That'll Do
I think I need someone that I can talk to
Suppose it doesn't really matter who
This old dirty windshield affords me a handsome view
But I cost myself someone to show it to

Please send me soon
A brand new tune
Or at least someone
I could sing the old one to
If there's anybody who
Will suffer a fool
That'll Do just fine
Yeah, that'll do

My heart has been hollowed I can't shy away from that
My ambition left to feast upon the fat
Self-diagnosed as a self spoon fed brat
Who can't keep it under his hat

Please send me soon
A brand new tune
Or at least someone
I could sing the old one to
If there's anybody who
Will suffer a fool
That'll Do just fine
Yeah, that'll do

Love drunk or hate struck
Can't scrape by on dumb luck
I know, yeah okay I know
I shouldn't believe
I'll ever be relieved
If it's coming it's sure coming slow

Please send me soon
A brand new tune
Or at least someone
I could sing the old one to
If there's anybody who
Will suffer a fool
That'll Do just fine
Yeah, that'll do
