Secret meeting in the hallway Hidden shapes in darkened doorways Someone hiding round the corner Watch your back now Just a feeling in your chest and Someone breathing down your neck Feel your heart race, feel it stop dead Watch your back now This is the motive This is the smoking gun This is weapons grade love, this is weapons grade love This is the footprint This is the latex glove This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love Ring her up and try to warn her Think you know her, the informer Hide the list of names and numbers Watch your back now, oh oh oh Count them up and try to mark them Paper, wood and plastic cartons Bodies buried in the garden Watch your back now This is the poison This is the nuclear bomb This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love This is the witness This is the steel and blood This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love This is the motive This is the smoking gun This is weapons grade love, this is weapons grade love This is the footprint This is the latex glove This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love You pull the pin and run away This is the poison This is the nuclear bomb This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love This is the witness This is the steel and blood This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love This is the motive This is the smoking gun This is weapons grade love, this is weapons grade love This is the footprint This is the latex glove This is weapons-grade love, this is weapons-grade love

You spray the vowels on my cheek, you spray the vowels on my cheek (I try to, I try to fight! I fought it, I fight!) You scrape the syntax down my back, you scrape the syntax down my back (I try to, I try to fight! I fought it, I fight!) You slap the nouns across my face, you slap the nouns across my face (I try to, I try to fight! I fought it, I fought it...) Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike three times! The lion. The tiger. The bear. You push the pen into my chest, you push the pen into my chest (I try to, I try to fight! I fought it, I fight!) The ink is a trickle down my skin, the ink a trickle down my skin (I try to, I try to fight! I fought it, fought it...) Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike (twice)! Measure (once), strike three times! The lion. The tiger. The bear. You’re drawing birds, I’m seeing stars. The lion. The tiger. The bear.

Electrolove 03:25
Plug me in. Plug me in. Plug me in. Whisper sweet technology, the way you reboot makes me scream... Plug me in. robot electricity (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) speak soft to me in binary (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) push the buttons and the keys (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) add it to my memory (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) Electrolove. Electro-lectro love... Electrolove. Send me out. Send me out. Send me out. Load my paper, touch my screen, oh I’m your little fax machine Send me out. hack my mainframe database (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) satellites and outer space (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) type it, but don’t make a sound (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) enough to bring the network down (oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh!) I want to make you beep. I want to make you beep. I want to make you beep. I want to make you... Plug me in. Plug me in.

Can’t be trusted with this teacup I might drop it Don’t let me bite my nails cause I can’t stop it Ripping pages out of borrowed books Can’t ever find the tape to put it right Scratched up walls and cracked up outlets from your move-in At least I found the keys you kept on losing The plants have tumbled off the windowsill I know But you would have killed them anyway Don’t you bring it any closer You’re a fork and I’m a toaster Let the sparks fly (we could hurt somebody) Let the sparks fly (we could kill somebody) Battle wounds from peeling a potato Tattered shoes and hair like a tornado You never quite learned how to tie a tie These stains are unidentifiable I stay away from stained glass windows and small children These board games all have pieces that are missing Curtains open, trip on corners in my underwear I give the neighbours quite a show We’ve been given our last chances Over gasoline and matches Let the sparks fly (we could hurt somebody) Let the sparks fly (we could kill somebody) Closer calls and narrow misses Microwaves and metal dishes Let the sparks fly (we could hurt somebody) Let the sparks fly (we could kill somebody) Firecrackers and toy rockets Touch your finger to the socket Everything we touch explodes Everything we touch explodes Could we send them any higher? Bubble baths and old hairdryers Let the sparks fly (we could hurt somebody) Let the sparks fly (we could kill somebody)

It's what the lipstick pumps up And the short skirts give away The girls get in free The boys they gotta pay He's got his favourite cologne And his brand new aftershave The girls bat their eyes The boys all fall for that cliche And oh what you want I got it And oh what you need I got it Pretty boys and girls (Don’t stay home tonight) Pretty boys and girls (Go, go out tonight) I'll add a zero to the end If it helps to seal the deal I know the body is fake But the connection is real He's a daytime Clark Kent He's a midnight Superman She's an afternoon five She's a neon light ten Pretty boys and girls (Don’t stay home tonight) Pretty boys and girls (Go, go out tonight) Ballet class to dance hall floors What were all the lectures for? They can't save us anymore They can't save us anymore Bar the windows, lock the doors Bright-eyed youth turned carnivore They can't save us anymore Pretty boys and girls (Don’t stay home tonight) Pretty boys and girls (Go, go out tonight)

I Wait 04:36
I will touch a dial to hear your tone You are just a voicemail, I’m a phone on hold I’m a 5‘o’clock and you’re an 8. I’m in town on business you’re a flight delay I’ll try to fit you in, (it’s never long enough), but my day is too full (I always hold you up) I’d hold your minute hand, (The seconds pass us by) but I’ve gone digital (There is no second try) I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait! I served you neat, and took mine on the rocks I’m a glass of wine and you’re a whisky shot Give a whisper take it as a shout I will bare my teeth and you will knock me out Point a finger, lock a wrist (You never saw me go), bruise your knuckles, use your fist (Thinking fast moving slow) Block your stick and dodge your stone. (You don’t hear what I say), I don't wanna break your bones. (Why would I think to stay) I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait. I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait, I wait! I’ll wait around for what you’ll say (I wait, I wait!) (I wait for what you’ll say) (I’ll wait around for what you’ll say)

Hearts 03:05
Could you help me break my heart? Try to pull my chest apart Leave it beating on the floor I don’t need it anymore If I could lock it up with yours I’d make them tell us what they’re waiting for Keep them on their own, let them fight it out Watch us back away and never let them out It’s hearts that always screw it up you’ve found me out, you’ve found me out Fill the holes and hide it well Sew us up, no one can tell That we’ve left our hearts behind That we’ve let it all unwind These transparent hearts can’t hide us We hold ticking bombs inside us We’re stuffed full of knobs and buttons Just two clicks from whole destruction It’s hearts that always mess around I’ve let you down, I’ve let you down We will tear it out (tear it out) We will tear it up (tear it up) We will throw it over (throw it now) We will run it down (run it down) Find me fist-sized clumps of dirt Muddy mixture of our hurt Wash it, watch it disappear We will run the water clear Pack your bags, we’re leaving early I’ll be Tin Man, you, my Dorothy Never mind the secret-hiding Let the gears and cogs go flying It’s hearts that always run us through Away we flew, away we flew

Lily's in the doghouse, Lily's in the doghouse. She can't do one thing right, she's in the dog house. She left the water boiling, she left the oven on. Lily can't do one thing right, she's in the doghouse. She tore the office curtains She stained the bed sheets The bathtub overflowing She can't do one thing right! She can't do one thing right! She can't do one thing! Lily's in the deep end, Lily's in the deep end. She just won't let it go, she's in the deep end. She split the sofa cushions She spread the gasoline The fire detector's screaming, She just won't let it go! She just won't let it go! She just won't let it go! She just won't let it go! It's a happy kitchen, full of happy people It's a happy kitchen, full of happy people. It's a happy kitchen, full of happy people. It's a happy kitchen...

I Could Swim 04:58
You said, take me out’ the boat Show me to the deep, Throw me to the water You said, love would taste as sweet When it swells your heart, when it fills your lungs I could swim Lift my lips up to the wave Scratching in the dark, Floating at the sight Dip your toes into the glass As I’m diving in, I will taste the shards I could swim, I could swim I could swim, I could swim Drowning, smelling sour to me Better tell myself, better talk it under Toss me, Lovely lonely wave Thrash me into sleep, rock me, turn me over I could swim, I could swim I could swim, I could swim

Oh, you've got my back now (You know I've got your back now!) A school yard blitz attack, oh! (You know I've got your back now!) A stairwell chain reaction (You know I've got your back now!) Oh, you've got my back now (You know I've got your back now!) Belt it out and croon it wrong, I’ll sing you like a Cake song. Press to record my favorite part, patron of the arts You’re so cool and I’m so weird for you, I’m so weird for you! I just can’t find the beat, oh! (You just can’t find the beat) I clap on the one and three (You just can’t find the beat) No one can dance with me (You just can’t find the beat) I just can’t find the beat, oh! (You just can’t find the beat) Trace the freckles, see the stars, chart the constellations on your arms. Astronauts will navigate them, astronimate them. You’re so cool and I’m so weird for you, I’m so weird for you! Neuromantic soul collider Hyperlink our codes and wires I’ll be your fan fiction writer. You’re so...and I’m so...and I’m so...and I’m so weird for you!
